Reader x Loki - Chapter TwelveReader x Loki - Chapter Twelve3 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
You were excited but nervous to be going home. Loki invaded your every thought. You wondered what he's done to your home in the past five months, or if he even went to your home at all. You surprisingly wanted to see him again, badly. When Tony called you that morning you felt like you were going to explode. You couldn't wait.
An hour or so later you were at your front door, almost dying of the queasy feeling of nervousness mixing in with excitement. Holding your breath, and the pile of paper Tony gave you, you reached for the doorknob. You tried to open the door, but it was locked. You jiggled the knob violently, pushing your body weight into the door. A few minutes later, you were slamming against the door. "May I help you?" Said a familiar voice from behind you, you could practically hear the mocking smirk in his voice.
You turned, "Hello Loki," you said, not sure if you should smile or glare at him so you sort of just stared at him blankly, "mind letting me into my house?"

Skyscrapers loomed over the people walking below. They seemed like they were mocking you, showcasing the high paying office jobs through their crystal clear windows. You looked back down at the gray, gum covered sidewalk, your eyebrows furrowing in frustration.
It wasn't fair. You had worked so hard to get a good, high paying job, so why didn't anyone want to hire you? Every single interview you gone to had turned you down. If you counted them all it would amount to twenty-five failed interviews. It didn't do much to help your self-esteem. In an effort to cheer yourself up, you always told yourself that it was the economy and they simply didn't have the money to hire another worker. Yes, that was it. Somehow, that made you feel a bit better when you went hungry at night, unable to pay for more food, or when the light and water went out due to unpaid bills, or when the eviction notices piled up at your door step.
Your head turned upwards once more, wanting one last glance at the office
iNSaNiTY I shutter to remember the dream I once had. It was creepy and showed me something I never thought of about Pokemon. It taught me never to use my Action Reply again.

It was about four days ago when I was playing my Pokemon Black vision. I had bought a new Action Reply so I was messing around with codes and having fun walking through walls. I was up in my room sitting on my bed. It was around 2:49 on a Saturday morning.

It was a truly lovely day as Prince Roland, perched regally atop his magnificent steed, ambled along an old trail through the Forgotten Forest. Though he was alone, and hopelessly lost, the Prince's countenance still carried the haughty mark of his royal station: the chin firmly squared and angled so the tip of his impressively shaped nose always pointed precisely between his horse's ear tips; finely shaped lips pursed ever so slightly so as to hide any hint of real emotion; and velvet brown eyes carefully narrowed as they peered down the sides of the afore ascribed nose. A particular source of vanity, his long flaxen hair flowed in elegant waves to a precise length just below his shoulder blades, the multitude of blond and light brown tones shimmering each time the strands stirred.
As he'd been taught from birth, the Prince was very careful to always retain his regal bearing. After all, one never knew when a peasant might suddenly app

Ukyo sighed as she stood in the doorway of the Ucchans. Shed forgotten how hard it was running the restaurant by herself. With Konatsu running the other store in Juban, it was once again just her, but in business as in life you could only move forward, the past was immutable as stone. At the thought of stone a memory surfaced, memories of him, his body and how it had looked and felt and could make her feel.
No, she mumbled softly in a vain attempt to stop the forthcoming flood of painful recollections, a gentle caress, a smile, a look, his smell, a strangely appealing mix of sweat, and pine. She choked back a sob as she remembered the last time she saw him, the look of pain and betrayal that haunted her dreams.
She paused, collected herself, shut and bolted the door and went up to her bedroom, her cold, lonely bedroom. She started to break down again.

"And that is your opinion," Sesshomaru countered.
Crossing her arms, Kagome practically hissed at him, "I am not the only one who holds that opinion of you, Sesshomaru. Ask anyone. They will tell you the same thing."
"I do not need to ask anyone else. Complain all you like but my opinion is the only one that matters."

It was raining on that day too. The foreign warriors brought Garu back. They told us he died a hero. I began to cry. I cried for him, even thought I knew he didn't love me the way I loved him. Everyone cried in Suka Village.
Strangely, no one bothered the village after Garu died. It was as if Suka Village was granting a grace period. Albio and Ching became Suka Village's new protectors, and they proved to be a great team. They pleaded for me to join them, but after three months, I had turned my sorrow and heartbreak into anger. I told them no and shunned them from that point on. I was no longer the sweet, earnest dumpling-haired girl everyone loved and adored. I no longer carried a torch for Garu. If I ever wanted to get over him, I had to change. A year passed
