Jefferson - InsanityThe candlelight was waning, but I took no notice. I couldn't, even as the wax dripped down the holder and threatened to hit my paper--I had to finish this letter; I could not leave it for the morning. With my back hunched over my desk, my fingers cramping after writing for so long, I was beginning to feel like myself again. I didn't want the moment to leave.Jefferson - Insanity5 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
"Mr. Thomas?" Elizabeth's entrance had been so subtle I had not heard it; I jumped. "Mr. Thomas, you should be getting to bed soon. It's awful late." I heard her place a dish at my elbow, and I glanced over at it. A half-empty cup of broth.
Elizabeth remained at my side, but I turned her away with a flick of my wrist. She curtsied and left just as silent as she'd come. The door shut, I was alone again.
I sighed and pushed my broth away; when I returned to my quill, my hand was trembling. Your letter found me a little emerging from the stupor of mine which had rendered me as dead to the world as she whose loss occasioned it--

You lived in a place where it never snowed; it's never cold enough for snow. You remember going on a trip to the mountains down south where it did snow. You had been six years old and you loved it, never wanting to leave. You had played with an older boy but your mother and father didn't see him. His name was Jack and he had told you that they couldn't see him because of magic. That was the only time you have seen Jack, even when you took trips to the mountains with your friends. Over the years you lost faith in the magic that he had talked about, and you lost faith in him. You wrote him off as an imaginary friend from your childhood. You're now eighteen and have no interest in the snow anymore, you're glad it doesn't get cold enough where you live; you hate the cold. But one winter's day can change everything.
"(Name)! Your friend's here!" Your mom yells down the hallway.

And there she was, Martha Wayles Skelton Jefferson, lying on the white bed, surrounded by colourful flowers that didn’t seem so colourful to Thomas at all. The pale skin glued to her bone structure like a soft silk hugging the body of the woman he loved the most. She had soft dark shades under her eyes that used to have a beautiful hazel colour.
“The eyes I never got tired of looking at.” He thought to himself.
Her gorgeous, long, light, brown, wavy hair seemed to have lost its vivid colour.
“The hair I used to smell. That soft smell of roses you always had on your hair.”
The corpse of his beloved had Martha’s favourite dress, a light beige one with soft yellow lines.
“The dress she wore the first time we ever saw each other.”
On her neck she was bearing a golden necklace with a golden cross.
“The golden necklace I gave you as a birthday gift.”
On her left hand, there was the golden ring.

"Send them in..!" she muttered as discretely as possible toward the other end of the stage but no one appeared. The other news casters would be waiting to give that weekend's weather forecast in fifteen minutes and time was as valuable as money. "Ahem We seem to be having some technical difficulty.

Jack Frost x ReaderIt seemed as though your mind, however tired, refused to fall into slumber this night. No matter how much you tossed and turned, fitted yourself into different positions, you could not get comfortable. It felt as though something was eating at your brain all day, which explained the lack of focus on anything. You were scolded by your teacher multiple times for not paying attention, instead you were caught staring out the window, admiring the blankets of snow that covered the entire town. Eventually you gave up trying to sleep and pulled yourself out of bed and sat on the edge of it. A heavy sigh left your mouth as your head fell into your hands. You began massaging your temples in frustration. You took in a deep breath as you stood up and wandered over to your frost-decorated window. The multiple leaf designed flakes of frost seemed so magical to you. You placed your hand on the window and rested your forehead against the windowpane.

With a sigh, you closed the door to your office and bedroom and leaned against the door. Even though the adrenalin from the battle still somewhat thrummed in your veins, it was dulled by the memory of Arthur's face. How many years had it been since you had seen a familiar face? Ten years now? How much things had changed . Shaking your head, you pulled your hat off your head and tossed it to the side. You ran your fingers through your hair, fluffing back up from it's flattened state, before sliding both hands to the tie hidden by your hair keeping the mask on your face. Now, in the safety of your room, you could take it off. Pulling at the ends of the ribbons, the bow came undone, and the mask easily came off your face. You stood up straight, walking over to the night table near your bed, and placed the mask carefully onto the top. Staring into the mirror above it, a reflection of your face stared back at you.

The leaves fall
In a flurry of warm colors
Animals gather the last bits of food
Preparing for what is to come
Frost covers the land
The snow blankets the trees
As if to keep them warm
The untouched snow
Glitters like millions of diamonds
As it sits atop a tall mountain
Watching the winter animals scurry about
But soon enough
Melting the little glitters of beauty
Soon everything grows
Bright greens and other colors
Birds start to sing
A different beauty is born
But this beauty can not be born
Without another equal beauty
