Chapter 2- Discoveries
"I can't believe we spent the whole day shopping and we didn't buy any groceries!"
"Who's fault is that Al?"
Alphonse gave his brother a disapproving look from where stood near the door, "Get your work done brother, I'll be back in a few hours." Ed sighed as the door slammed shut. He loved his home office job, he really did. It meant more Al, less Mustang, and rarely did he get beaten half to death. It was the paperwork he despised.
Fifteen minutes after beginning his work, Edward deemed himself 'bored to death' and attempted to resurrect himself with the help of a sandwich and juice break. Ed sulked, he knew what he wanted to do, but the consequences didn't seem attractive. If Al found out Ed had been in his room snooping he'd kill him. Then he'd quest for another Philosopher's Stone, just so he could bring him back and kill him again.
After very little deliberation, Edward decided satisfying his curi
Reign of the KrakenThe ocean waves created a mellow, soothing sound as the moon's reflection played on the cool rippling surface. Molly stood with her feet in the surf, untouched by the chill of the sea. Her son stood only a few feet away from her, the bright moonlight reflecting off of his damp body.Reign of the Kraken3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
"Hello again, Mother," he said, softly. His voice surprised her: it was high pitched and lilting, much different from the bass rumble of his father's. But then, she thought to herself, he's really only a child, isn't he?
"Hello again, son." She stared into his bright eyes, almond shaped and slightly slanted, like her own. His appearance was unusual: he'd inherited some of his mother's Asian features, but his father's light hair and eyes. He was beautiful, but like the others of his kind there seemed to be a latent power within him that went beyond his physique.
"It's time to go now," he said, hesitantly.
"Do you know the way?"
"I think so. It should not be far."
Molly extended her arms towards him. She had

Owen narrowed his eyes as he looked up at the statue placed delicately upon the parapet of Castle Wyverns outer wall. It was beautiful, slender, graceful, clad in extravagant garments carved with the utmost detail. And the face it was like that of an innocent child and an untouchable woman all at once. The blank eyes seemed to be just barely holding back weary tears, and the half-parted lips seemed to be forming a question, or a sigh perhaps. It was truly an exquisite piece.
It should also not have been there.
He reached into his jacket and pulled out the newest model of cellular phone that Xanatos Enterprises had produced. It was a prototype, the X-model, and taking time to get used to (especially the earpiece). But it also had more features than most cars, and a camera that outperformed professional photographers worldwide.
He took a quick photograph of the statue and stowed the X-model back in his pocket, hastening to inform his employer of t

All-in-all, the trip had been a successful one. He returned home bone tired, but also very pleased with himself.
Naturally, once he arrived home, his Jackbots gave him a report of what hed missed.

"Ugh, Why do you buy those Al?" The small blond stood with his hands on his hips as he waited for the younger of the two to finish his shopping.
"I like them brother, besides, they are flattering don't you think?"
Edward lifted a volume from the large stack and carefully examined it, "The Alchemist of the People volume six, includes the short story The Adventures of Roy Pinto." Al laughed. "They didn't even get our names right!"
"Well no brother, if they wrote our real last names we could sue them, they don't want to go to jail I'm certain."
"Oh, so um, Al?"
"Are the stories even close to what really happened?"
"More or less," Al lied. It was mostly less to say the least. In fact the only thing the stories did get right was their inexplicable (to everyone but them) journey to find the Philosopher's Stone and the brotherly bond they shared throughout. Also that Mu

I'm one of those people that enjoy contortion. Not really the kind that are on those pay-to-view websites or the circus, although I do join them occasionally, but the kind that appears as a hobby. I do enjoy standalone shows and acts, mostly because the art is demonstrated flawlessly and not as a time-waster.
This would explain why I was out. I had noticed on an upcoming contortionist's website that they were doing a performance in my city. She was an extremely flexible contortionist that always seems to wear the one leotard when performing. She was quite an attention-grabber to me for unknown reasons, and that's why I went: to see her performance.
The venue was quite small. After all, it was very old and low-quali
Sasuke Hinata fanfic pg 13 "I had a dream..." said Hinata, interrupting the awkward atmosphere. Sasuke looked at her. "It wasn't a nightmare, but it was … scary." She continued. Her eyes looking at nothing in particular.Sasuke Hinata fanfic pg 139 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
Couldn't be any scarier then mine, thought the Uchiha boy.
Hinata continued, "Everything was hazy. Green… like the fireflies from last night." She hugged her knees. "I saw… Naruto-kun. But his eyes weren't the same. They looked like… a fox's." At this, Sasuke looked at the girl more intently. Suddenly he was now interested in her story.
"I thought he was glaring at me, but he wasn't." she continued. "I turned around, and I saw the silhouette of a person. Their eyes were glowing red, and their long hair swayed in the wind. After a little while, I realized it was you." This tugged the boy's interest even more.
"I thought you said this wasn't a nightmare." He said.
"Th-that was just the first part." She stuttered, looking at Sasuke with a rosy face. He couldn't help but feel
Sasuke Hinata fanfic pg 2It hurt him to just leave her body there, surrounded by other dead bodies. But he had no choice. "Good bye, Sakura."Sasuke Hinata fanfic pg 29 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
He ran. He ran almost light speed fast looking for his friend. Where was Naruto? Where would he be in the middle of a war? …What place would he choose to die in…?
Sasuke shook his head. No. He's not dead. Naruto is strong, stronger then Sakura. He wouldn't let someone take his life. Not like that. He wouldn't.
Sasuke's heart beat grew quicker.
"NARUTO!" He screamed as he ran around the village. Not the Ramen shop. Not his house. Not the school. Where the hell is Naruto?
Sasuke ran to the grass fields where he and his classmates trained. He stopped in his tracks, and walked. Walked slowly on the blood-stained grass. The bodies were too gruesome to look at. He's seen death before. His brother Itachi. Again. Sasuke thought. It's happened again. Like the Uchiha clan. But this one… this was the whole village… it was too much.
A voice. A small, soft voice. He heard it. It was

His mind was a carefully formulated run-down of scientific methods.
He knew just how his future really began.
He knew how his future would come to an end.
It was simple really.
His lifespan was existent only as far as Itachi was existent.
Everything that came afterwards was nothing but a series of events in which he would not exude control.
He wouldnt bother.
At least thats what hed hypothesized as he rose to his feet.
Crumbling pebbles tumbled down over his dusty head, and he tested his unusually strong legs as he surveyed the crevice hed been hurled into.
The impact would have killed any ordinary being.
But Sasuke was far from ordinary now.
His cursed seal burned against his neck - the black, flaming vines inching their way painfully across the points of his skin, digging deep into pores and feeding his chakra vessels with more dark thoughts, more rage, more power.

The cave was anything but comfortable. It was dark, and the walls were cold and somewhat wet. It wasn't very big, but it had enough space to hold at least five people.
Sasuke sighed. "We'll have to stay here till morning. I don't think the rain will stop anytime soon."
Hinata looked at him in surprise. "W-won't they be looking for us?"
The Uchiha boy kept his eyes on the rain. He looked like he was studying its motion.
"They probably stayed at the village. Not all the buildings are ruined."
Hinata lowered her head. She hugged her knees tighter as if to block the pain in her chest.
Sasuke turned his head to face her. The poor girl. She now knew what it was like to lose a family. Almost her whole clan was slaughtered. The only person she had left was Neji. No, not just Neji, but Kiba and Shino too. Her teammates.
So maybe she wasn't entirely alone … it was just Sasuke.

The walk was awkward. Other then the sound of their feet hitting against the dirt trail, and the occasional cricket from the insects, it was quiet.
Sasuke and Hinata just could not go into conversation. They had absolutely nothing in common, aside from the fact that both their families were massacred. And it didn't seem right to talk casually after all that's happened and seen.
A sound from the bushes startled Hinata. She jumped, and stepped away from its direction. Sasuke, holding the torch high in the air, stepped in front of her. Guard up, battle stance position, senses heightened, he was ready to fight.
After a while, something finally shuffled out of the bushes. Hinata held her breath, and Sasuke tensed up his stance. It took a moment for both of them to realize that it was just a fox. It's tail twitched, and its green eyes sparkled in the torch light.
Sasuke could hear Hinata let out a sigh. "It w-was just a fox." She laughed nervously. Sasuke lowered his gu

Alright, said Shikamaru, in a business-like way (after a few cups of coffee). Lets go through this round-by round.
Right. Chouji agreed. In the first challenge, Temari came up with a fairly good memory, although I notice she couldnt help but slip in a dig about how she had to save you once.
Yes, thats right. And Deidara was Shikamaru shuddered involuntarily. Well, he said that thing about watching me in the shower, didnt he? That was creepy, to say the least. Then in the second round, Temari just bragged about how much stronger than me she was.

Problems didn't exist.Sasuke Hinata fanfic pg 109 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
She gathered up some fruit from a nearby tree. They would provide the energy needed for the rest of the walk back to camp.
As she entered the cave, Sasuke tossed. Was he dreaming? He turned to Hinata's direction. Slowly, she placed the fruit in front of him. So that when he awoke, he could just get them with the stretch of an arm.
She sat down, and paused as her eyes caught the sight of Sasuke's pale face. He looked much more serene. Almost gentle.
She hadn't realized that she was staring at the boy, until he opened his eyes and gave her a strange look after a series of blinks. He sat up, and stretched.
The girl immediately switched her gazes to the fruit. Her cheeks slightly

It was near daybreak.
The blue torch flames that lit up Shirakume's palace faded as the darkness of the night began to yield to the approaching light.
Two of Kureha's apparitions were moving through the palace, carrying large caskets belonging to their mistress.
They glided through the long outdoor passageway between the wings of the palace, then entered into the dimly lit hallway of the next building.
Suddenly, they both halted.

Sesshoumaru stood silently while two female servants dressed him in his suite.
They seemed to be new, about his age or slightly younger.
They were both attractive, and seemed too sheltered to be serving their position.

It was dark out, but everyone was accompanied by a torch or candle. One side of the surviving villagers suggested that they burry their loved ones tomorrow in the morning, but the other side demanded they give them a burial before they rot. There was so much tension. Sasuke almost wished he never came back.
"Here." Shikamaru threw a shovel at the Uchiha boy.
"Start digging in that area, about four holes. Tell Tsunade when you're done."
Sasuke didn't like to be told what to do, but he didn't complain. He was in no place to do that right now.
In a few hours, he finished digging. As he climbed out of the last hole, he could feel some of the surviving villagers glare at him. He could almost hear their thoughts as well, "He should stay in that hole, where he belongs."

He gasped. The layout in front of him, the scene he saw … it just took his breath away. Konoha … it was in ruins now. Some buildings were still on fire. Bodies were everywhere. Blood splattered the walkway. Even the mountain of Hokages looked seriously beaten up. It was falling apart.
He was falling apart.
Sasuke slowly walked around, struggling to stand. His knees were shaking, though it didn't seem like it.
He finally decided to go back to Konoha, and the day he did … he saw what was expected, but beyond imaginable.
There was a war. Orochimaru's men against the people of the leaf village. Where was Sasuke that time? What was he doing?
An overwhelming sense of regret overcame his body. Was this all his fault?
The last Uchiha … was also the last Leaf Villager. That's what it would seem.
Sasuke walked to the bench where he painfully left his old teammate. Sakura. Then it hit him. What happened to her? In the blink of an eye, he ran to where she might've gone to.

Sasuke seemed to be standing in the middle of an abyss. There was no floor. Just waves of grayish lines all around him. It frightened him.
"You must be drunk with power. You must get stronger to kill Orochimaru and Itachi."
"No!" shouted Sasuke. "I've done enough. I don't want to hurt anyone anymore." He tightly covered his ears with his hands and closed his eyes.
"The others don't matter. Nothing matters. Especially if you are weak." Taunted his own voice.
"Stop it! That's not true!"
"The villagers hate you. Your best friend despises you. There was no point of you coming back to this village."

"What the hell happened?" asked the Uchiha boy. He let his arms drop from his companion's shoulders, and walked forward.
The refuge camp was like a replica of the Konoha village. There wasn't as much blood, or people, but it was still an unpleasant sight. Most of the tents looked like they were raided by a bear, and some were fortunately still standing. But stains of blood were dashed on them. A few bodies lay limp on the floor. Gashes found all over them. Hinata ran into the yellow tent where most of the villagers were held, hoping some of them had survived, despite their crisis. Naruto fell to his knees and started to punch the ground over and over. His fists started to shade red.
