House of Night
The Shadow Bloodline Chronicles
The first thing I noticed as I was returning to the realm of the living was an unbelievable weariness. All I wanted to do right then was go back to sleep, but I knew that I had to keep returning to a state of consciousness. Keeping my eyes closed I focused on each of my senses.
Focusing on touch I realized that I was on my back in a bed, with my arms at my sides. I focused harder... Yes! I still had my clothes on! Phew! Focusing even harder didn't feel anything like blood around my mouth or on my cheeks under my eyes. I guess they must've cleaned up my face.
Moving on, I skipped taste and smell. Nothing was out of the ordinary there, so I didn't need them now. Instead I focused on sound. That's when I finally noticed that I wasn't alone.
"So what you're saying is, he's not dead?" I heard a woman say, and from her voice I knew she was stunningly beautiful.
Then a man replied, sounding a bit anno

but you were
never very good
at letting people see
past the poet.
You were too busy
setting your legs on fire,
masturbation works for a while,
the realization that you’re in
the same sheets
And you know, Jake,
they’re legalizing marijuana now.
Turns out it’s not
just the people
who did it were.
or maybe it’s accurate;
you did always teach me to go
for the better word.
It’s accurate that
my first and only tattoo
I ever wanted will have been
written by me, revised by you
I am not what I've worn;
I am who I have worn down.

The Shadow Bloodline Chronicles
"Oh! That's right! Eponine interrupted before I could answer your question. When they closed the House of Night in Washington, their swordmaster didn't wish to leave the state. They couldn't force him to come, so they started a search for a new swordmaster." He lowered his voice, and I had to strain to hear him. "Death came to me in a dream then, saying I should offer myself as the swordmaster for this House of Night. Lady Death never asks much of us aside from hunts, so when she asked this of me, I obeyed." Then his voice returned to its normal volume. "Two months later I was teaching fencing to new fledglings and advanced swordplay to those who showed great skill with a blade. I even privately teach a few who were gifted with an affinity for swordsmanship or other weapons."
As we walked he tapped the side of his Greatsword's tip. "Since my name is Pendragon, many have given my Claymore the nickname

You heard the word 'erection' in poetry?
I think it was a while back
Between the pages
I mean "humans" don't even play
Or just rise to the thirteen year old tree-house
Inside us all
Where politeness is a foul facade
And we aren't afraid of our fingers.
We prioritise the silhouettes
The way pressing pen into paper
Made us so
And out of
Inspiration isn't a pretty, pristine river...
And it's about time we became
It's about time
We let up
And let it
Burn us up
Turn us on
Turn us up
Our wobbly bits
Into an aphrodisiac
So if there's any P.S.
Poetry can teach you
the word 'erection'.

imagine a dappled blue-green-gray sphere of a changing globe warped by pain. in this world your emotions have been robbed by a black-clad fiend. with him he took love, desire, happiness, peace. he took in his grimy arms your most blissful memories and meaningful pastimes. he took away the good in your life.
he was careful to leave behind only the demons of the night, multiplied in their potency and frequency by the sheer wrongness of the crime itself. he made sure that, bereft of all comforts you once enjoyed, you would be haunted forever. you would have no joy to hide behind, no shield from the onslaught of gloom. he leaves, but remains with you forever.
what you once felt is numbed, frozen and buried deep in the core of some forgotten antechamber of your heart your fractured pinkish muscle that never ceases to sting you with its insistent throbbing. insistent. that's what it is. it won't just give up and die as you often wish it would

Pretty much all of my life had been centered around pleasing other people. I may have dressed a way that most people didn't like, but my actions had still been for the better of other people. When my parents wanted a certain grade, I got that or better. When my friends wanted something done, but were too scared to do it themselves, I did it as long as my parents wouldn't get mad. My whole life had been based off of what other people wanted, and even though I was out of high school, that was one thing that hadn't changed.
You may think that getting a job at a strip club hadn't been my smartest decision, but originally all I had been doing was serving drinks at the bar. I wasn't one of the people doing dirty things on stage, even though I often got asked to give people lap dances, I was only there as a bartender. Many people that showed up however, didn't think that should have been the end of my job description, especially since I still had to dress quite erotically.

I walked into the hotel room, taking my clothes off as I went along. I walked into the bathroom and got into the shower, I felt my body relax as the water hit it. I sighed, putting on a show was hard work, Andy was still outside with the fans. He'd had lots of questions about the love bite on his neck, I grinned to myself as I remember how his cheeks went red and he'd stuttered out an excuse.
I heard the door open, Andy was back.
I walked into our room and frowned, Ash's clothes were thrown on the floor in a trail that leaded to the bathroom. Growling affectionately I bent down to retrieve each item of clothing, then I slung them all into the washing basket. Kicking off my boots I sauntered into the bathroom, were my outlaw was drying himself.
"You shed your clothes to easily," I teased, leaning on the door frame.
"I don't see you complaining," he walked over to me, giving me a quick kiss then squeezing past me into the bedroom, I followed him were I watched

After a long day of work at a job that I hated, there was only one place that I ever wanted to be: the local strip club. Or at least one of them.
In the city that I loved in, there was two strip clubs owned by the same man. One of the places was where guys stripped, most of the frequenters were women, and the other one, where it was mostly men, was where they had mostly women stripping.
I frequented the one where men stripped.
Normally people wondered why there wasn't just a straight place and a gay place, I guess I wondered the same thing sometimes, but the truth of the matter was just that it was a lot more fun freaking out the women who went there. The frequent visitors didn't mind my friends and I much, but we really disturbed the newbies.
"Dude!" my friend CC yelled, running into the room. "Are you ready to see hot dudes strip for our money?"
I laughed. There was just no way you could deny CC of anything when he asked for it, even if it was only an answer to

I woke up late in the afternoon, in our hotel room, I felt around the bed, feeling the silky rumpled sheets then sat bolt upright...Ash wasn't there. Slowly I eased out of bed and walked to the bathroom, he wasn't there either. What if he'd left me? What if he was fucking a cheap whore as I was looking for him?, the thought brought tears into my eyes, spilling down my cheeks, I sank to the floor and put my head in my hands. Suddenly I heard the door open, bolting down the hallway I threw myself into Ashley's arms.
"Andy?, baby what's wrong?" he said, lifting me into his arms, cradling me to his chest.
"I t-t-thought you h-h-had left m-m-me," I cried, for some reason I couldn't stop blubbering.
Silently he carried me to the sofa, where he curled up on with me throwing a blanket over us both.
"My gazelle why are you so cold?" his hands stroked over my cold arms,warming them." I would never leave you gazelle... I cant bear to think about me leaving you," His voice
Adopted By The Biersack's Part FourteenAs soon as dinner was done and Andy was in the guest room on the phone with Juliet, I sprinted into my room, nearly sliding across the wooden living room floor, and pulled out my phone. My friends had wanted me to tell them about meeting my brother as soon as I could, and if I didn’t, they would surely harass me about it tomorrow.Adopted By The Biersack's Part Fourteen2 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
It had only been a few hours since they first called me, so I was hoping that they were all still together. The phone rang one and a half times before Calloway picked up. I could hear the others in the background, sounding very excited.
“So, how was it?” he wondered, sounding calm and collected. I heard him push a button, so I figured he was putting me on speaker for the others to hear. I laughed under my breath and sat down on my bed. Honestly, I was still soaking in the experience. I still had to grasp the fact that I was an adopted Biersack. I knew it was going to take a while for the reality to set in.

Adopted By The Biersack's Part EightPre Calculus was the worst thing I've ever had to endure. The teacher was awful, not to mention, math is not one of my good friends. Going to a new school a few weeks into the year was already bad enough. Thank God the teacher didn't try to catch me up on every assignment. That was the only thing I liked about him. He was one of those older gentlemen that didn't get along with students and should have quit teaching ten years ago. I ignored everything he said that wasn't math related. I wasn't in the mood to deal with his bullshit.Adopted By The Biersack's Part Eight3 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
After that, I had lunch. It was almost eleven, so I was pretty hungry, considering I hadn't eaten breakfast. I looked around for the familiar faces of Calloway and November, hoping to find them so I wouldn't be stuck sitting by myself. The lunchroom was decently sized, but it was big enough to fit the whole school in it. The student body was much smaller than I had originally thought.
The tables were long and rectangular, enough to fit probably 12 to 22 peopl
Adopted By The Biersack's Part SeventeenIt’d been about a month and a half since I started school, and I had still kept who my family really was a secret. I was thoroughly impressed with myself. My friends had asked me on numerous occasions when they would get to meet my parents and brother. I had told them that Andrew went back to school and that my parents had super crazy work schedules. As far as I could tell, they were buying it.Adopted By The Biersack's Part Seventeen2 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
I didn’t know how much longer I could keep this up. I felt like I could trust them enough to tell them the truth, but I just wanted to be sure. The longer I held it out, the angrier they would be when they found out that I’d been lying to them for so long. Hopefully, being the good friends that they are, they’d understand.
I snatched the little vanilla cupcake off of my desk and followed my classmates out the door. The lunch bell was ringing in our ears, and I was ecstatic to give RayJay the cupcake that I had prepared for his birthday. It was a cute little vanilla one wi
Seven MinutesI had never been to a party that wasn't being thrown by one of my friends. But Lilly and I were kinda friends. We had a class together, but that was the only time we talked. When she invited me to her birthday party, I wasn't sure if I wanted to go. She was one of the more popular kids, but she was so nice. My two close friends, Kristal and Hayley, were also kind of friends with her, so they also got invited. We all decided that there was probably going to be a lot of popular, mean kids there, so if we all went, we had to stay by each other the whole night.Seven Minutes5 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

On the other hand, it was the smartest thing I've ever done.

I heard people talking in the front part of the bus. So I guess that everyone is awake. Well, I think so...
I saw a hand in the bunk in front of me, because the curtain was not completely closed. I saw how the hand was taking the pillow, strongly. Poor pillow. I thought to myself.
I opened the curtain and I made a small jump when I saw the demon in the bunk of Coma
"Fuck" I said
"Did I scare you?" He asked with a smile trying to be amicable
"No, I'm used to see your fucking face" I spitted to him
"Uh. Someone is angry, but-" The demon put a hand on the chest of Coma. He complained. Coma always have nightmares, and now, he will have more nightmares than before."- He is having a bad dream"

I smiled as my room mate and best friend, Christian Coma asked me the same question that he had done about less then five minutes ago. Christian was an insanely huge panickier, especially about the safety and welfare of yours truly, but that's what made me love him immensely so.
"Yes Chuppy, For the thousandth time," I chucked and punched him playfully on the arm.
He grinned at me, his hundred megawatt smile. "I know, I just get so-"
"Panicked? Terrified? Scared?" I teased, arching one plucked eyebrow at him.
He laughed, a great booming sound which echoed off the metal walls of the elevator. "Precisely,"
The elevator came to a smooth stop and the doors slid open to reveal a new Manhattan morning. We stepped out in sync and Christian automatically gripped my upper arm in his hand, I rolled my eyes fondly at his over protective gesture and let him lead me to the double doors which was the entrance to the block of f

I woke up to the sound of my alarm clock ringing in the background. It was 7a.m., and I knew that if I didn't get up soon my mom would barge into my bedroom, strip the bed covers from me and tell me to get up or I'll be late for school. And this would be a very awkward scenario because I like to sleep naked sometimes. I swung my legs out of the bed and looked around for some clothes, which was quite a challenge because most of them were bundled up on the floor. 'I got to clean this up some time.' I sighed while I pulled a KISS t-shirt over my shivering body. I buttoned up my black leather jeans and walked over to the mirror. 'Oh Andy you're such a mess.' I mumbled to myself and began to brush thorough my raven black hair. I quickly straightened it and smudged black eyeliner around my eyes. I normally wear more makeup than this, but I didn't have enough time so I had to go for a simpler look. I picked up my bag off the chair and hurried downstairs. 'Don't forget your breakf

Don’t get me wrong, I was super stoked, but I was also super nervous. My friends sent me some encouraging texts throughout the day, but all I really wanted was a hug from them.

He sighted and looked around. He felt a sudden soft grip on his hand. He looked down and saw Rouge holding it. "...Rouge?" he asked. Rouge didn't looked at him but answered.
