Annabeth raised her eyebrow as her boyfriend continued to yell at this 'little gray alien.' Eventually she walked over to him and stared at the game he was playing. There was, in fact, a little gray alien running along some blue platforms. Percy slammed his hand down on the space bar and the alien hurtled over a gap in the platform.
"What the heck is this?" Annabeth asked unimpressed.
"Run" Percy replied keeping his eyes locked on the screen. Annabeth giggled at the expression on his face. She decided it was the most concentrating look she had ever seen from him. He glanced at her and smirk

So now was the time. So now was the end. Was it really supposed to go this way?
Was it really that easy? I had said goodbye to everyone and closed my eyes. I was waiting now, just waiting. And the time I was waiting I used to think. About the dreams I hadn't realized, about the future I wanted so badly. About things I'd miss, the things I'd never know.
Still, it seemed so easy to let this go, there was nothing that held me back. Not a voice in my head telling me to fight. Only the pain of knowing that this was the end. Just the end.
Patience will be rewarded, as they said. I saw the shadow. It came closer. It was weird; this was a person, an animal, a god, an angel, a devil in one person. He was like a dream. One of those dreams where your thoughts, your hidden instincts, tell you who this person is, even if you've never seen him. And as in a dream, he changed appearances before you could tell what appearance it was. He had the silhouette of a man, but then when I looked I saw long h

All had recently been sprung from Azkaban, and all were waiting his instructions on what to do until the enchantments on The Boy's house lifted. They were all extremely nervous, because none of them knew who he was going to pick on next. But Voldemort just sat silently and stroked his huge snake, Nagini. Finally, he spoke in a calm, even tone, "I need an heir." The silence in the room got even deeper. Everyone looked around nervously, wondering if they'd just heard correctly, "I'll need someone to take my place eventually," He elaborated.The Heir of Voldemort Prolouge4 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

I lay back down, replaying the events that occurred. I can still smell the scent of lavender her hair emitted; as potent and addicting as a drug. Whether or not a figment of my imagination, I swear I can still feel the warmth emanating from her skin as though she were still in my arms.

Jade got a tight grip on her pencil and brought it to her paper. Soon, an assortment of curves and lines were coming together to form what appeared to be Skye's face. Then carefully, she tried to include the small details of her face--things such as the slight curves in her hair and the arch of her brow--to act as the perfect finishing touches to the sketch. Once the sketch was completed, Jade picked up her paper and showed Skye.
Skye's face lit up with excitement once her eyes met the paper. "That is amazing Jade!" she exclaimed. Then, she eagerly grabbed a pencil and paper of her own. "Now it's my turn."
Jade gave a smile, straightened her back and sat still. Skye peered at her face closely and began sketching. It didn't take her as long

Ah Despicable Me, the animated film that sucker punched everyone in 2010 as to how good it is. Okay, I've never seen the first film due to general laziness but then again, that's sort of a common thing with me when I see a sequel first then watch the first film. For example, recently I managed to catch City Slickers II a few months ago on Movieplex. And well, since I live for experimentation when it comes to film and television, I took a risk. But make no mistake, I'm aware of the film's characters and their overall personality traits and development in the first film especially since I figured what was going to happen anyway so I didn't feel lost and really, even if I did see the first film, it wouldn't matter because in a nutshell, I really like this film.

We'd only been twelve years old and apparently the anxiety spiked his blood pressure to the point of combustion... I remember that when we were forced to take sex ed a few years later we were divided into separate classes for boys and girls, in case a diagram of an ovary was too risqué and we became animalistic and started clawing at each other in our seats, but nonetheless when our teacher Ms Jacobs had explained to us what an erection was in my mind all I could picture was the blood rushing to his nose and then the slash of cranberry across my blouse.
