"Hello, hello, heellooo~ Soul-kun!" a loud booming voice came from on top a platform that sat in the middle of the giant room. Soul slowly climbed up the steps onto the platform and found a young girl his age standing next to the tall man.
"You called for me?" he asked lazily as he scratched the back of his head, shifting his eyes from the shinigami to the girl and back.
"I sure did Soul-kun. This," he motioned the young girl with his gloved hand, "is Mauri Napolitano."
Soul watched the girl as she took steps towards him with her lips pursed, ready to lay a kiss on him.
Soul eyes widened from the sight. He instantly grabbed her face with both hands and held
Seventh Symphony chapter 2I sat next to Raija on the sofa, lost in thought. I'd been thinking about how different I am to her and Aleksi. My ears are pointed and I have a tail like that of a rat. I remember people calling it a 'birth defect' and that it should not contain any bones or be able to move. It does contain bones and I can move it and use it for balance. Human don't have tails.

I snapped back into the real world as the front door opened.
Aleksi returned with our dinner. He plonked two carrier bags on the kitchen table and Squirrel began to take plates from the cupboard nearest the fridge. I could smell it. Fish, chips, salt and vinegar. Always too much vinegar.
“Iiro! How much do you want? This enough?” Aleksi called.
I sighed and picked up the two empty mugs from the table. I wasn't hungry and he always piled too much on my plate, complaining that I was “too skinny” and “all arms and legs”. Once I was in the kitchen, I put the mugs in the si

Yotsumi stood at Tokyo Station for Odawara Station with RENA, shocked at the number of people there. "I-I-I only invited six people H-How " she stuttered, her brain firing its last synapses. The six people she had invited somehow now stood before her at a whopping twenty-one- plus one iguana. Shizuo scowled at her as he shoved his hands in his pockets as if to say, "I told you so". It took RENA pulling on Yotsumi's sleeve to get her to snap back into reality.

Onew turned under the bedsheets. Someone was knocking on a door. Who was interrupting his sleep?
He looked at the alarm clock on his nightstand. 7:00 am. The sun had just risen. He focused his hearing to what was happening outside.
"Renee... baby..." someone said loudly in an apologetic tone. "I'm sorry.... please open up!"
Onew recognized the voice. It was Daesuk. He also recognized the words he was saying. The very same words he repeated every time he came back. Every time he hurt her he would come back the next morning, all regretful, all sweet and apologetic. He got out of bed, his feet touching the wooden floor. He slowly made his way to the door. Took a peek out of the door's eye. He could see Daesuk slowly falling to his knees. Was he sobbing?
Onew took a step back and let out a sigh. Closed his eyes praying that he wouldn't hear the sound of the door opening again. The sound of Renee walking towards him again... But he did.

You know, like when something happens that triggers something inside and then you try your best to get out of your mind. That's what happened to me. Because I knew where this was gonna take me. I knew this reaction of mine. I could try to deny it but there was something there.
Something I felt when he told me I'm more than enough. When he held me. And it just kept bugging me. Couldn't get it all out of my head. I hated myself for that.
A couple of nights later it was that I realized...
We were once again in the car after the musical. He was sitting on my right and I could see he was tired. More than the other nights.

I stopped when he held my hand.
"nobody knows how hard it is for us... we work really hard doing something we love but... we have to sacrifice so much... and times like these, times when I see us moving forward and succeed... reminds me of all the times I considered giving up... the times I thought I'm not good enough... the times I missed my mom and my dad... we barely get to see our families anymore...
I know I'm a guy, and I'm supposed to hold it all in but sometimes... I just can't... you know..."

Chapter 9A few days later I was informed that I would be needed in the SM Town concert. The stylist asked for me to be there. I was told her exact words were "We have to use all the people we have available and this girl has been doing great. I need her there." I had never been part of something so huge before and the thought kinda scared me at first but I got in touch with the stylish herself and the stylists and assistants of other groups and artists in SMent.

The guys went out with their manager to see a bit of L.A and shop and I spent my day with a couple of the other assistants I usually hang out with.

I didn't expect him to agree but he seemed kind. And kinda like that we left. In the car I texted Seung Hee and explained the situation so that she wouldn't worry for me.

He gradually let go of Renee and got off the floor. Walking fast he went to her apartment. He walked inside just to see some drops of blood on the floor, from Renee's bleeding lip, and then a broken vase. He walked up to the coffee table and picked up the small stuffed bunny off of the wooden floor, letting out a little sigh. He then walked back to the door, took the keys and closed it behind him. He locked and returned to his place.
