It's been six years since my adventure in the Spirit World, six years since I've seen him. When I was able to return to my world with my parents and before I ran to the tunnel where they were waiting for me, Haku did promise me that we will see each other again some day soon.
Having strong faith in him since that day, I've been waiting patiently for Haku to come into the human world and find me. Even at the times I become very impatient and had almost about given up on waiting for him, my memories of him and my strong feelings for Haku make me think twice because he could appear anytime, possibly when I least expect it one of these days.
Looking out my bedroom window, as I thought about Haku, I decide to go out for a walk. Leaving my room once my light was turned off and I closed the door behind me, my mom said from t

"Why do they even send us out here when there's nothing to catch? The scientists already told the company that even after a year, the fish have barely returned!" Junji complained as he leaned against the trawl and smoked his cigarette.
"Maybe they're just doing it because they're desperate or they just refuse to believe their livelihood is gone. Have you seen how bad the market has gotten?" Ishiro said as he leaned on the opposite side of the trawl.
"I guess you're right, on the bright side, at least we're getting paid to do nothing," Junji said as he and Ishiro chuckled before there was a hard tug on the trawl which caused them both to jump.
Suddenly they felt the boat jerk and rock, causing them to stumble and fall onto their backs before Junji managed to crawl up and retract the net

I pointed over to the tape on top of the pile. It was completely unmarked, as were the rest. “Let’s check that one out first, shall we?” I asked.
“Fair enough.” Mumbled Arthur. He quietly popped the first tape out, and went into the next room, returning in a minute with a piece of masking tape and a sharpie. He slapped some tape on the edge of the cassette, and scrawled something on it before showing it to me. It read “B-Garasharp”
“The ‘B’ he explained, “marks proof of Baradagi. We might put something else on the tapes if more patterns pop up that we notice.”
I shook my head. “More patterns? You got any coffee, Red Bull, Mountain Dew? This could be a long night…”
He strode into the other room, but was back in a moment with several massive bottles of Mountain Dew in his hands and a big grin on his face. “There’s plenty more where those came from.” he chuckled as he set them in f

He used to line them into constellations in his free time:
The Big Dipper;
He called her Galaxy Girl
and swore she'd walk the moon someday.
he captured twenty-six fireflies for her
and she laughed
when he held up the jar
and told her she could find her way home with it.
She could light her way back to him.
He swore she'd be the first girl
he'd ever name a star for
and he'd call it Glacier to match her eyes
it was so much better than her real name.
He looks at the sky
through his telescope now
and wonders if she realizes he kept his promise.
Twenty-eight stars are dedicated to her
and her universe freckles.
He named them all Lizzie
and despite his long midnight talks
with the fireflies he always captures in his palms just for her,
he still can't bring her back to his world.

Long ago , when I was young I often worked at an old inn "The Winged Sword", I worked there to earn some money so I could travel the world later. There were always plenty of people, especially drunken people. I remember one evening in particular, it was a night with a storm like no other. It was impossible for me to go home that night, I was forced to sleep at "The Winged Sword" I prepared my bed beside the fireplace. I would be warm and cosy all night, but the weather would keep me awake. Just when I was trying to tuck in, the door flew up and an old lady came in.

Seastars Shine - Mermaid TransformationSeastars Shine - Mermaid Transformation2 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
The sea, as anyone will tell you, is a place of mystery. Of change, charm, and challenges. Change: the magnificent way in which the water's workings astound us. Charm: the way the creatures of the deep can make us smile, then lurch back in terror. And Challenge: the difficulty in exploring it all, or even attempting to. To the people of the Candlelit Coast, the seastars were all three. Like a veil of glitter across the ocean water, the seastars were countless lights, shimmering upon the surface, bright enough to rival the stars of the sky. A yearly phenomenon, and to understand it was a Challenge, certainly, and its Charm went without saying.
But, malleable as the ocean is, even its most trusted constants can Change ... And for that, today, the seastars would make all the Change in the world.

He lived in his fathers castle, and had never left. A royal governess taught him history in the library, and he learned how to use a sword with the kinsmen in the back yard, but he was not a brilliant student. He didnt have friends, but he seemed to get along just fine that way. In his free time he read books. Things were never different for him since the day he acknowledged the existence of each.

Aster spun around, his eyes growing wider as he saw a patch of ice in the middle of the pond, slowly expanding outward. Aster stared at the slowly spreading sheet of ice, not sure what to make of it. At first his heart had jumped, the impossible thought that it was Jack bubbling up within him until he tamped it down. Wild hoped wasn't going to do anything, that fact had made itself abundantly clear over the last month. So Aster sat on the bank, content to watch the slow progress of the ice as it took over the pond.
Aster had been sitting there for nearly an hour, the ice having just covered the entirety of the pond when he saw something that caused him to do a double take. There, in the middle of the pond, was a dark shape, a dark blur just visible through the ice. 'You're just being hopeful again' Aster told himsel

The woman looked down to her reflection with a fond smile. Her hair wasn't always such a bright shade; she'd changed it to closer match the ocean. Swimming was one of her favorite passions, and she had always dreamed of living under the water.
While this had started as a simple fancy, it had escalated to her dyeing her hair and even switching to a fish-only diet.
Granted, it came at a cost. But she'd been blessed with good fortune for all her life, and she'd always been able to afford her expenses. Unfortunately, even her fortune was not enough to fulfill her fondest wish: a life underwater.
It was, however, enough to grant her a job at OceanLand, an aquatic theme park built for people with an interest in the ocean. Better yet, her company didn't mind her taking after-hours dips like this, even in the animal tanks.

She lay crooked in his arm, her head comfortably pillowed on his shoulder, both of them flat on their backs in the park. It was an idyllic day, the kind of day a child draws with crayons. Bright, hard blue sky, vivid green grass, and a sparkling pond full of ducks completed the picture. Far overhead, seagulls wheeled and soared on air currents, and the crisp air carried the fresh, salty scent of the ocean.
“Do what?” he murmured, sleepy beneath the warm rays of the sun.
He stroked her hair absently. “I could arrange that.”

Pokemon Report: Elemental TypePokemon Report: Elemental Type5 years ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
The "Fire" type is unique in its members' ability to create or control fire. Apparently, their cells are protected with a flame-retardant cocktail, while sulfur, phosphorus, and carbon are stored in special organs to produce the flame. These Pokemon tend to be colored with "warm" tones, and since they are virtually fire-proof, can live in incredibly hot conditions (e.g. the inside of a volcano). Fire Pokemon tend to devour metals and minerals straight from the rock, since their cells are unable to properly digest normal food.
"Water"-type Pokemon are generally aquatic or partially so. There is not much of a cellular difference between Water types and Normal types, but they do possess the ability to absorb and release vast quantities of water. Some such Pokemon have the ability to change the weather, generate a wall of concentrated water, and even blast a never-seen plasma form of water.
The "Grass" type is similar in ways to the Bug type, but instead of a primitive mite livi

Aster opened his eyes blearily, reaching towards the opposite side of his bed automatically, feeling the familiar pang in his chest when he found it empty. It had been a month, to the day, since Jack had died, and Aster still forgot sometimes.
