Gregory House limped away from the remains that once were his motorbike. There were flames and smoke everywhere that made his vision blurry. He tried to get away from the danger. Danger. Hah. Gregory House didn't know what danger was, he thought bitterly to himself. He sighed as he sat down in the grass. When he looked at his motorbike, he wondered how he actually got there. It seemed like ages ago he was pulling pranks on Wilson
'Morning sunshine.' House said cheerfully when Wilson came in, still wearing his pyjamas. 'Morning' Wilson grunted back. Dark rings under his eyes showed signs of the long nights at the hospital, the many patients and relatives he had to comfort and the pain he had to see every day. 'So, any plans for today?' House asked while he held out a mock with coffee to his friend. 'House, please, not this morning, I'm tired. I had the worst night ev.. What is that?!' He spat out his coffee, midsentence, with a disgusted look. He wiped

Okay, so Bakura told me he’s tired of just sitting around watching me play video games all day. I can’t imagine why… At any rate, he appears to be serious about this (he even made his little stubborn-pouty face) so, in the interest of preserving our evil alliance, I agreed to separate myself from my console for a couple of days.
I never said anything about my PC...
Ha ha ha, I am so wonderfully evil! The fluffy fool cannot possibly begin to imagine that I am really still playing video games behind his back! Well, technically it’s more like an online RPG, but my plan is still SUPREMELY EVIL. That’ll teach him who really wears the leather pants around here.
Hmm, let’s see… This T.O.M.E. game is supposed to be some kind of virtual-reality-type-thing… I don’t really know how it works, but it reeks so badly of money and arrogance that I’m sure Kaiba’s hologram technology is involved. Although it really doesn’t have a

Claudius, the Pumpkin King, sat upon the field
Wishing for hands with which to yield.
"The king of the patch I am today
And all within my sight I hold sway."
"The crows do pay me homage, the mice bow with respect.
The bees buzz in lowered tones, and flies fly with wings in check"
"The scarecrow stand my honored guard,
and function as my nightly bard"
But upon all this I'd trade my woes,
Just to scratch this itch upon my nose!"

Shocked, I staggered backwards till I was almost pressed up against the tomb of Colossus. Helen had been coming up closer to me, till she had stopped and started calling me her prince and how she was overjoyed that we could finally be together. She reached her hand out to me, as if she expected me to take it. Then all of the sudden she was Helen again, the same Helen who had always lived next door to me. She looked up at me.
"Nassor? Did you bring me here?" she asked me, her eyes brimming with sadness and innocence.
"No" I replied. "You walked up to me while I was here."
"That's funny" she said, a confused look on her face. "I don't remember coming here."
"You had better go home before your parents start to worry about you." I told her, my mind filled with questions and thoughts about what had happened only a few minutes earlier. I needed her to leave so I could sort them out.

45 Facts I Bet You Didn't Know About Black Butler1. In episode 17, when Undertaker is in the pot of salt, Sebastian holds his handkerchief to his nose. This implies demons have an aversion to salt, whether it be rock salt or just salt in general. This wouldn't be such an outrageous statement, seeing as some other shows, movies, and books (ex. Supernatural) say that salt is good for keeping demons at bay by sprinkling a trail in front of doors or windows to keep them out of a house.45 Facts I Bet You Didn't Know About Black Butler3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
2. Sebastian is based off of a French inquisitor (noble, officer running a certain part of an area). How? "Sebastien" lived in 16th century France, and was most famous for his books on demon possession and classification. His books are still somewhat used today.
3. In the most recent manga arc as well as other times within the manga, Sebastian is seen wearing rosary beads along with his teacher outfit. Whether this be of arrogance or not, this shows that Sebastian is not affected by many "holy" things (ex. Rosaries, holy water, etc.).

After he first looked in the mirror since acquiring his own body, Bakura methodically shattered every reflective surface he could get his hands on. To see Ryou's body double instead of the man he had once been was too much. This skinny, frail thing couldn't be himit was a mockery, the pharaoh's newest knife to stab and twist in this smooth, new, pale skin.
Malik came home to him slumped on his knees in front of the TV, watching the news, blood oozing from his cut-up hands. As he grabbed the first-aid kit, he said simply, "Welcome to my world."
He never considered himself crippled not by his life underground, or by the scars on his back. If anything, he was stronger for what had been done to him, and he would be damned if he couldn't prove it. There was a poo

"Carl, there's a dead human in our house!"
My best friend-and roommate-Carl, was in the kitchen, doing the dishes, which was odd, because Carl never did the chores.
He shuffled over and poked the dead body with his foot. "Oh...hey...how did he get here?" Blood was pooling on the floor, from multiple stab wounds in the dead man's chest.
His lying tone was obvious. I stared at him, alarmed. "Carl, what did you DO?!"
He waved a hand nonchalantly. "Me? I didn't do this."
"Explain what happened, Carl!" I said angrily. These kinds of things seemed to happen whenever I went out...
"I've never seen him before in my life!" Carl protested.

I hate being a ghost. I hate that I can't be like any of my friends. I hate that I can't be able to know what food tastes like. I hate that I can't be able to feel the sun on my face. I hate how there's almost no one out there who understands what I'm going through.

Food makes you fat. Calories are your natural enemy. Think you're hungry? Think again. You want to put something in that tummy of yours? Not while I'm here. Eating is for people with no self-control. You're better than that, I hope. What defines us as people? Will power. Show some. Put down that fork. Do you really need to eat dinner? You can pass on breakfast and lunch, too. Look in the mirror. What do you see? Fat. It's everywhere, spreading over your body like a disease. Why on earth would you need food when you have so much of it under your skin? Gluttony is as much a sin as it is repulsive. Let's not embarrass ourselves.

Sometimes, he would see families at the park playing with their dogs. How he wished he were one of those dogs. After a time, he decided that he would try to befriend one of the children that played in the park. He was overcome with excitement and haphazardly ran toward a child while yelling "Hello!" over and over again. He had almost reached the child when, suddenly, he felt a sharp pain in his side. A man had kicked him causing him to yelp in pain. He never went back to the park again.
Despite that incident, it did not deter him from trying to find someone who wanted him. The dog promised himself that if he should ever find someone to love him, he would return that love a hundredfold.
