The end of summer was nearing. Now, you could begin to taste the soft feeling of leaves changing colour, and boys had started to pull on their T-shirts while girls exchanged their spaghetti straps for clothes with a little more coverage on the arms. And most importantly, peoples lives-much like the falling leaves, which just months ago had begun to grow after a cold winter-were about to change. Very much.
Morty, an upperclassman at the nearby high school, knew this. He could taste it in the smell of the incense he lit every night; change was coming. He didn't know exactly what this change was, or who it would effect. He just knew change was coming. Once again, he lit the incense in his family's shrine; it was a ritual he did daily, a form of relaxation. He turned, surprised to see two younger teens watching him from behind a few bushes. He cocked his head, curious.
"Ethan, are you crazy? He definitely won't-" one of the younger teens, Lyra, hissed to her companion, who was alway

Told in Luno's POV:
"I...I think I like you..." God, only think? I only think I like her? No, I was sure I liked Solé, but why didn't I just say: 'I like you.'
"You...think you like me?" Solé repeated. I bit my tongue as I felt my heart pounding up my chest.
"No..." I whispered. "I like you, Solé. I like you a lot..." I felt how my cheeks went from pink to red.
"I like you too, Luno." Solé whispered with one of her smiles. A cute, soft smile. One of those smiles that make you happy, whatever happens.
"Since when?" I asked.
"...What?" She tilted her head to the side.
"Since when did you like me?" I looked to the sea.
"I don't know, to be honest..." She said. "I don't know, but I do know I like you..." I heard the cries of Wingull passing us.
"I'm not sure when, but I think the first time I met you..." I said hesitatingly. I didn't quite know how to tell her this... "I...You..." I bit my lip.

"I know I promised but your front door was locked." Jun explained wincing as Hikari placed a Band-Aid on the wound.
"Well my mom went on her yearly reunion to go see her friends. I told you yesterday that she was leaving early this morning." Hikari sighed, grabbing his arm to examine the small scrapes.
"Well I forgot." Jun muttered.
"So climbing up the tree next to my house and climb through my bedroom window (well try anyway) was the best solution you could come up with?" She asked.
"Yes?" Jun said. "I just wanted to wake you up. You're always sleeping in late."
"It was six in the morning, dummy!" Hikari exploded in his face, pointing a finger at him. "You're lucky to survive that fall with just scratches and scrapes! You could've broken something! For Arceus sakes, Jun! You scared me half to death when

You couldn't figure out what type Burgh used until you walked into his Gym. And then, well, it slapped you in the face. There was so much honey covering everything, it was hard to identify the paintings, so dim they glowed amongst the bright shine of honey. Burgh was painting when I arrived, numerous jesters dancing around him.
"Burgh, what are you doing?" I asked clearly as I struggled to free my boot from the Gym's sticky decorations. Burgh looked up absent-mindedly. "Painting, of course."
I rolled my eyes. "Well, no duh. But what are they doing?" Burgh looked around at his Gym's Trainers. "Posing."
I just put my hand on my hip. "And our battle is... When?" Burgh looked up, and then instantly started packing everything away, even pushing his apprentices out of the way when they continued to dance stubbornly. "So. Let's battle! Show me your artistic grace, Bl

That meeting, like all when it came to me, was a rough one. It didn't help that all the older boy could talk about was whether or not pokemon were really happy with us, so all I could think of in return was how great his aqua green eyes would compliment a great big black bruise. You can't really blame me! Maybe I only had three pokemon so far, but I figured we were pretty chummy, for only have knowing eachother for a day. Cheren, my black haired childhood friend, narrowed his eyes as he said something about wanting to be Champion, the strongest of the strong. I missed what the other boy said, as I was figuring out how to attack him without him being able to grab the pokeball that rested at his hip. Cheren meanwhile, glanced at me, as though asking if I could believe any of this, but then again, as I just mentioned, I wasn't listening, because I was wondering whether or not I had brought along a bobby pin, which I could use to kill the teen in less than ten seconds.

I blinked the sleep out of my eyes as I turned over in bed. Sunshine creaked through the wide window on the wall. Shaking my head sleepily, I forced myself to sit up. I looked at my surroundings, as I hadn't had much energy to last night. I hadn't noticed how tired I was until I saw Dawn's family's spare bed, and then I wanted to collapse. Not to mention I still hadn't met her family, as her little sister and grandfather had been the only ones home, and they were already in bed when we arrived. I wonder how her parents would react when they found Barry sleeping on their spare bedroom floor. And me in their kitchen, helping Dawn with breakfast. Or maybe she brings teenage guys home all the time. That could be possible too.
There actually happened to be two beds in the spare room, but of course, to escape Princess's wrath, Barry slept on the floor. Speaking of Princess, she had decided that she would stand guard during the night, in case Barry got the sneaky idea to crawl into the bed wh

Author's Note: There's really nothing to say here. This is a completely original story that I thought of on the go. And that's it! Enjoy!
Have you ever wanted to take back a bad decision that you've made just to see what could have happened? I'm not talking about a simple problem such as cheating on a test or saying the wrong thing to your girlfriend. I'm talking about the really bad, "what-was-I-thinking", everyone-suffers, life-altering decisions. Ever had one of those before? I'm just guessing, but I think that there's no one in the world who hasn't had one of those at one point. Have you ever wondered what could have happened if you could take one of those back?
I have. My father tells me that the past cannot be changed no matter what you try, and I respect him enough to believe him. But even though he has never lied to me, I can't help thinking what could have happened to me if I had just left...
But I'm not complaining right now. My decision was

Squirtle ReportSquirtle (the Tiny Turtle Pokémon) is an exceptionally rare Water-type Pokémon found in ponds, lakes and sea Routes near and within the Kanto region. Though perhaps not among the most powerful of attackers in battle, Squirtle are energetic creatures that can make great companions for young trainers that are looking for a start that isn't too easy or too hard. Squirtle might not be as strong as some other Water-types, but it can't be denied that these critters are exceptionally cute; just be careful not to be too mean to them, or you might end up with a Water Gun in your face!Squirtle Report4 years ago in Profiles More Like This
When Squirtle are first born and their backs swell into shells, the shells are still quite soft and vulnerable to damage; though this is perhaps the most dangerous period of time within their lives, the shells thankfully harden exceptionally quickly, usually within the first hour or so after their birth.

The light shined away from her eyes. Two green eyes were looking at her. The eyes blinked at her and he backed up and turned off the little light in his hand. It was Barky. Beside him was a very small looking fari named Angel, she was wearing a nurse hat. Kirby blinked and rubbed her eyes. She then tried to get up and felt a throbbing pain from her head. She quickly grabbed her head and closed her eyes. She gave a little whimper of pain.

Beheeyem ReportBeheeyem (the Cerebral Pokémon) is a relatively rare Psychic-type Pokémon found within abandoned and haunted buildings within the Unova region and across much of the U.S. (though they are spread somewhat thin) as well as the Hoenn region on rare occasions. Though there is relatively little known about these creatures, it cannot be denied that Beheeyem are dangerous creatures to be around; regardless of whether you specialize in Psychic-types or not, this is one species that will definitely throw a monkey wrench into your battle plans with their amazing psychic abilities and devastating selection of moves. They might not have the strongest psychic powers (though they are still stronger than most Psychic-types) out of all creatures on Earth, but that matters very little when dealing with one of these beasts; if anything else, you should be thankful if you can even remember encountering them at all!Beheeyem Report4 years ago in Profiles More Like This

Where all I had to worry about
Were skinned knees
And cooties from boys.
I wish I would be a child again.
Where boys ran away from girls
And no one lied.
I wish I could be a child again.
Where parents were devoted
In every part of my life.
I wish I could be a child again.
When there was recess,
And fun and games.
I want to be a child again.
I want the child meant wonder.
I want the never ending hope.
I want loyalty.
I want simplicity.
I want to be a child again.
I want my innocence back.
I want to not have to worry.
I want grades that don't matter
I want time outs to be the worse punishment.
I wish I could be a child again.
When looks didn't matter,
And when I didn't have responsibility.
I don't want to worry.
I don't want to grow up.

A small home, in a small town. The year: approximately five years ago. Shortly after dinner, the two children of the home were perched on a comfy blue sofa, watching a short movie before going to bed. A man sits at the table, tapping his fingers anxiously as he waits, glancing at the clock frequently. A woman with long brown hair soon joins his side, placing a hand on his shoulder. She's waiting, too.
Suddenly, a soft knocking alerts the little girl in the living room. Curiously innocent, she slides off the couch and walks over to the door. Reaching up on her tippy-toes, the little child opens the door and stares at the visitors.
Several people, one with flaming red hair, another with long dark violet locks and dark skin, and many others, stare down at the girl in return. Instantly, the man is behind the little girl, and quickly ushers the group inside. The young boy, six-years old, had gotten off the sofa as well to join his sister, and th

It was too painful for the blonde to watch as his best friend so depressed.Mute Melodies - Chapter 13 years ago in Drama More Like This
