The Unluckiest Number
Things just keep going from bad to worse
A fresh wave of guilt washed over Adrian as he slowly followed his father up the front steps. Danny had remained quiet the entire trip home, and that could only mean he was hurt deeply by his son's words. The young teen couldn't help but feel some sympathy for his dad, but he felt like his outburst was justified. After all, he was still mad at Danny for not being around very much, and the fact that Adrian and his siblings got kidnapped every couple of weeks and had to be rescued just made him feel more bitter and frustrated. He sighed as he trudged through the door.
Before he was even all the way inside, a usually soft voice assaulted his ears with an excited scream. "BROTHER!!!!" The next thing Adrian knew, a pair of arms wrapped around his neck and he could barely keep stable from the sudden added weight.
The boy glanced down to see his littlest sister, Lilith Ann Fenton, hugging him tightly. She was dressed

Since the day I was born, my eyes have beheld the Ghostzone
The air was freezing. All around, voices whispered from shadows, their owners trying to catch a glimpse of what was happening in the abyss below. A silence fell over the area, a new cry echoed into the depths of the Ghostzone. The gathered spirits murmured excitedly. It had actually happened; the halfa's offspring had been born in the middle of the realm of the dead.
Sam Fenton held a little bundle in her arms as her amethyst eyes darted around, catching glimpses of nearby ghosts. Warily she clutched her precious cargo closer to her chest. Inside the soft blankets, two small eyes stared curiously at the surroundings. The child was a newborn, and the world he now saw was an awe-inspiring mystery to him.
The mother of the little miracle looked to her husband worriedly. "I still can't believe he was born her in the Ghostzone Doctor Patterson said our child would be born next week, not this "
Save a HorseBuck heard the door close behind him, already counting the bills in his hands. Finding that the woman had overpaid him a little, he grinned something truly disconcerting on the face of a Holstein bull. He buttoned his shirt halfway up on his way to the elevator, hiding the perfect human body that made him all his money or at least most. His bovine ears twitched at the ding the elevator made when it reached the lobby of the hotel.Save a Horse5 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

Bite MeBite Me: An Analysis of the Myth of Woman in Stephenie Meyer's TwilightBite Me5 years ago in Academic Essays More Like This
Since being published in 2005, Stephenie Meyer's Twilight has gone from just another young adult fantasy novel to a cult phenomenon that has gripped millions of readers of all ages. When a piece of literature becomes as widespread as Twilight, it becomes especially important to examine the messages it is sending to its readers many of whom, in Twilight's case, are impressionable young women. By applying a feminist lens to the novel and examining it in terms of Simone de Beauvoir's myth of woman, it is revealed that Twilight is a hotbed of antifeminist sentiment, from the skewed balance of power to the simple fact that none of the women in the novel are employed. If only because of the book's wide range of impact due to its bloated and romance-blinded fan base, it is important to take de Beauvoir's advice for viewing literature and expose how the myth of woman is perp

Her eyes were bright green and full of energy, her hair cascaded down her waist in straight auburn lines, falling to the middle of her thighs. She always wore a smile; inherited from her mother. She spewed out quick wit that her father so generously gave to her.
She wore pink and loved the idea of make-up and boys. She would spend a few minutes a day practicing batting her eyelashes in the mirror beside her best friend. They would fall into giggles before running to their class together side-by-side.
She would talk of what the perfect boy would be like: he'd be super handsome. He'd buy her roses everyday and would say just the right things. He'd be smart and rich and he'd drive a really fancy car. Her family would love him and they would get married in the middle of a big church with 347 people attending, including the members of Nsync as their band.
She would grow up, she believed, and she would be pretty. She'd still be fun and liked as she was

"Get a life!" they always say.
But.... What do they expect me to do?
Send the innocence away?
I don't understand your logic...
You always said the magic was here...
In this place where my childhood still remains,
With no discomfort, sadness, or fear...
Now I'm 'too old' for things such as fantasy...
'Too far away' from the things I once held dear.
You wonder why I act so awkward now,
When you've left me with nothing here!
I've tried to do your bidding...
I've tried to do as you asked...
But, you know... growing up like you?
....It's not such an easy task.
Don't YOU remember these times?
For you, too, were once my age.
You were once in the spot light like I am now,
Thrust upon center stage.
You chose your dismal course in life.
And now look - how distraught you've become!
Yet now! Even with these memories!
You still force yourselves upon your young!
Telling us lies all about adulthood

As I swim through the world
The concert hall is my home
Fate's wheels continue to turn
The orchestra plays for me
The melody never rests
Their violin is only for me
I love it so very much
It keeps me moving
As I search for something
Something inside of me
Someone is holding the answer
Look at me!
I cry out
Look at me!
Someone will respond

I don't hear a response

A voice cries out

Faster and faster
Is this what I've been searching for?
Is this . . . Love?

Hanji had been begging you to meet her colleague, Levi Ackerman. He was older than you by a few years, and what you had heard from Hanji herself, an asshole. At first you thought, 'Well, he can't be that bad.'
Now, sitting in front of the dull-faced man, and listening to Hanji in your left ear, you knew you were wrong. The first word, technically a noise, that came out of his mouth when he first saw you was, "Tch." What were you suppose to make of that?
You brought the coffee cup to your lips, your attention going back to Hanji. "...and then the damned rat just exploded! From the inside out, of course. Thankfully, I videoed the entire thing. I actually forgot to-" Hanji was interrupted by Levi.
"And, why the fuck do I care?" Levi said, his voice loud enough for the three of us to hear. He sounded tired and annoyed.

"Hey, idiot, you should get some sleep!"
He glanced to his right. It had been ten years and he still heard that sweet, demanding-for-your-attention tone. He clenched jaw and shut his eyes. He was haunted by your ghost and nightmares everyday and night. Guilt. Pain. Suffering. He thought he deserved it all.

Even though It was a little depressing and had a melancholic color, the abandoned grey building shone a chance for shelter and a place to spend the cold January nights. With an injured ankle, Levi steadily walked his way over and felt relief at finding a temporary place to dwell. He felt like the most fortunate person in the world, being able to escape being sent to a concentration camp and still be alive. But he also felt like the most unfortunate person as well, the feeling of unfortunateness came from the fact that he can be killed any day, any time, and that he is starving, homeless and has no family left.
Levi looked around the inside, and he sighed at the walls with multiple holes from previous battles between the Russians and Germans. He found his place to sleep for the night, the attic. He then began to look around the place hoping he'd find something, anything, to put in his grumbling stomach. He walked, and walked

We merely lived in the moment,
Savored what we have already discovered.
Voices drawn thin,
Singing the heart's intentions,
Quietly, confidently, for only one to hear.

Our plans reached new heights.
As barriers dropped, harsh sounds of falling,
Made us aware of the vague reality we left behind.
