WE ARE IN LOVEThey say a thousand words, but none hit as hard as I love you. Even when you cannot return their love, hearing someone call out your name and ask you to love them gives a strong pull inside everyone's heart. Knowledge is nothing, and power only makes you sick. Loneliness is concrete in each thought and we all have felt the pull and tug of someone else's heart. If only in our imagination... we all crave and desire it.
Why is it then that we must persecute those who have found love? If I marry a man, I am considered whole. If I marry a woman, I am diseased and punished for my insolence. Define for me love. A feeling that you can't deny? An emotion that makes people do crazy things for crazy people... just to say hello? If love is so wrong because a woman is with a woman or a man is with a man, then how can it exist at all? What about unrequited love? What about adultery? What about murdering your spouse? How many other things that have torn apart love... war, pain, sickness? There are a

The glass on the floor is stained with a blood trail leading out of the room up ahead. Well, I was going to start seeing a lot of it sometime. The room seemed to be all white; I prepared my retinas for a visual assault.
Aside from being white and featureless, the floor spattered with blood which came together at one large puddle of it. Three small bodies littered the floor; two of them face up, as if gasping for their last breath, one face down, drowning in plasma. Based on their shirts, the two boys face up were Acquaintance #5, who was at the center of the puddle, and #2, who was a little down to the right, still twitching. Out of respect for the dead, I decided not turn the girl over. That just left #'s 1, 4 and 6...
Behind them, however, was something even more astonishing. A massive chandelier had smashed smack dab into the middle of the room. Around it stood five people, three men, two women. One of the men was shuffling a deck of playing cards to pass the time.
Victorious? "Excuse me miss, would you like some help with that?" I stared at the boy irritably. I'm sure he meant well and all, but I had very little time for some misguided boy scout. "Do I look like I need your help?" I spat. He swallowed noticeable. "Well it's just your arm " "Yes yes I know I'm missing one. That's why I'm here. Now go help some old lady cross a street or something." I snarled as I turned away, heading towards my flight entrance. "Stupid little bugger." I took a drag out a cigarette and spat it into a trashcan as I passed it. As I headed to my flight, a large man in uniform grabbed my arm.Victorious?5 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
"Miss, you're going to have to go through the metal detector like everyone else. I glared at him fiercely, but to no avail. He was much larger, and therefore unaffected. I sighed and went to the metal detector, watching people having to strip off their clothes to get rid of their metals. As my turn arrived, I placed my bags on th
Going Soft"I hate mazes." Erin muttered as she trudged among the white dividers. She had half a mind to just knock them down and deal with the shocks later. She'd already felt the power of the jolts at the beginning when she pushed past her scruffy opponent at the beginning. Although they were nothing to laugh about, she'd felt worse before. She came to a stop, listening for the broken stride of her opponent, "Koda". Suddenly another shock emanated from the collar. As she collapsed to the ground, she hit her fist on the ground. "Dammit!!" Gritting her teeth, she slowly returned to standing, panting heavily. Is it just me or are the shocks getting worse? She wondered grimly. Clutching her gun tightly in her hand, she ran forward, keeping an eye on the wall to her left.Going Soft5 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
She stopped, breathing heavily. She shakily pulled out a cigarette, taking a long drag to calm her nerves. This guy&

"Fine... fine..." she mumbled as she held onto the table. Her knuckles were white from her grip on the furniture and her face was pale enough to match. "You?'
Koda nodded slowly, concentrating on his words, his speech knowingly unsteady. "We... it's..."
"...ok," Lori whispered. "It's... my turn..." She raised her hand up to her spoon and tried to grip at the handle. "Dammit," she growled as it slipped from her fingers into the soup. "Why'd you make soup?" Her annoyance helped her voice gain strength for a moment.
"I told you..." Koda muttered, the edge of his mouth rousing weakly to a smile. "I don't cook."
Lori sank her fingers into the soup, bringing the dripping utensil to the surface. "It... it's alright. Me... neither..." Her words were beginning to slur. She brought the spoon to her lips and sipped a small bit off before the spoon fell from her fingers.
