All other thoughts banished from her mind save one steady mantra(must get pie, don't wake up Auntie, must get pie, don't wake up Auntie) and her fingers were centimeters away from the fridge's handle when she heard the window against the far wall open.
The sane part of her brain knew that such a thing was impossible; her aunt's apartment was on the ten

"No!" The little girl squirmed in Donatello's arms. The mutant only smiled as he walked into his daughter's room, holding onto the toddler tight enough to where she wouldn't fall but lightly enough so he wouldn't hurt her.
"Please, Maggie?" Magdalene pouted, her hazel eyes sadly frowning up at her father. His daughter was three years old and, as much as she loved to nap and sleep, it was hard to get her properly tucked in every night.
"Ah, I know what will get you to sleep," he said as he sat her down on her yellow bed. "How does a bedtime story, sound?"
The little girl's big eyes grew wider and she grinned, her dark ginger hair falling into her eyes. Donatello walked over to her bookcase and scanned the spines. What story hadn't he told her yet? Sleeping Beauty? No, April had already read that to her. Snow White? He was pretty sure he had read that to her twice. Pinocchio? Oh, no, that scared her last time.

Herald of Galactus, Destroyer of Worlds.
I've traveled the cosmos, seen more than other eyes could hope to behold in a hundred lifetimes.

Without the slightiest hint of hesitation, the Silver Surfer soared atop his board towards the planet at speeds faster than light. Despite all the worlds he had explored, and no matter how many galaxies he has traveled since becoming Galactus' Seeker, the Silver Surfer could not help but feel drawn to this planet known as Earth. Whether this was caused by his connection with those that lived there or the fact that there was always something new to discover on

Told you to stay if you love me
Would I some day return to see
Your skeleton still there for me
Or would you be like everybody
And just abandon me?
If I beat you, almost to death
But then nursed you back to health
Would you love me like your breath
Or view me as the theft to your soul wealth?
If I tied you to a tree
Begged you to never leave me
Would you still try to get free
Never wanting to be near me
Or would you wait and see
If you're the one for me?
If I broke your bones,
Struck you with stones,
Then left you alone,
Would your heart still be my home?
If I tied you to a tree
Commanded you to wait for me
Would you stay obediently
Existing only for me
Or would you become a nobody
And be forgotten by me?

The Harsh Cold Rain,
Spiraling down from the heavens,
The forgotten angels broken jagged wings,
For their tears are shed,
Spiraling down from the heavens,
Into the depths of the earth,
Clouds of anger rage, and lost hope,
Skew the sky pitifully, and darkly,
Again spiraling down from the heavens,
Darkening the world,
Plunging it in darkness from their sorrow and regret,
Like a child, hands dirtied by harsh fate.
From the angel's of the blackness.
The Harsh Cold Rain,
Comes yet again.
Spiraling back down from the heavens.

Your fingers chill and warm my skin
A circling wave of desire
Fills my electrified brain
The softness of your sweet kiss
Forces my trembling knees
To crumble before you
There's fire in your eyes
Sending shockwaves up my spine
Your voice is my favorite song
I grow lost in your presence
Powerless to the taste of seduction
At your mercy I have grown
The love and respect you show me
Turns me into a puddle before you
Every single one of your desires
Are promises I shall fulfill
Your dream and goals in life
Are my plans to help you achieve
Never have I known this love
There has never been one like you
Someone when facing my towering walls
Crumbled them with a small touch
No one could get this close to me
Yet you did it with such ease
You have made my smile easy
The simple way you know me
How to stop my tears
To ease that troubling pain
I feel a glow run through
Wrapping me in that warm blanket
Seducing with that loving wisdom

But it's not there. I look for it in the video games that I always play in between training sessions. It isn't there either. I get out my precious horror and science-fiction movies, but still, nothing. I'm getting desperate, I actually try searching for it in the training sessions I always groan over. I find something there, but not what I'm looking for. I'm pretty much ready to resign myself, but I have one place left to look. I'm almost afraid to even try it, I'm terrified that it might fail me. I search for it, thoroughly, endlessly, within my comic books. BUT EVEN MY BELOVED SUPERHEROES, WHO'VE NEVER FAILED BEFORE, FAIL ME NOW!

watching as every woman swooned.
There was but one choice for him,
his heart decided on a whim.
The plain brunette in the frumpy dress.
The others thought it was a jest.
But his heart did swell,
and he knew well,
she was the one for him.
In the moonlight they were dancing.
Each other they were romancing.
Her hair gliding across his neck as she swirled.
He held her close as they whirled.
The twilight breeze smelled of flowers.
They danced and danced for hours.
But what exactly was his plan?
Did he decide to ask for the hand
of this girl he barely knew.
She whispered that she must be going.
Of his intentions she was unknowing.
He did protest but to no avail.
She would have to soon set sail.
The night was quickly coming to an end.
He would soon have a heart to mend.
With a small tear in his eye,
she leaned over and said goodbye.
And at that time she gave a kiss.
To always remind him of the one he'll miss.
The brown haired girl without a name.

Happily pleasing each of them
Throughout the day until the dusk
When time to bed they all must.

Embracing only those who don't
