"Eehh?" She asked, sounding somewhat nasal. She slumped down and rested her head on the table, then proceeding to swing her legs back and forth. Gabu walked to her and put his hand next to her head, then leaning sideways and looking into her eyes. "Chiiiaakkiii. How're you feeling?" His tone expressed concernment.
"I'm bored." Chiaki replied, straight out. She then turned her head and looked at him. "Huh you should know " Gabu laughed, and put his hand on Chiaki's head.
"Yeah, I know. Listen, I know you don't like your summer homework "
"But I have to do it?" She continued for him, her question sounding like a firm statement.
Gabu laughed again. "Well, if you want to. But I was about to propose another plan. I don't want to stay stuck here in the house, either."
Chiaki brought herself up, sitting straight,

The Algebra 2, Biology, mainly Japanese it's all in there, as I find I'm trying to survive the rest of the school year with one notebook.

"Hey Gabu. Where's Chiaki?" Sammy asked. It didn't even sound like he was curious, however. His tone was dull, seeming to match the atmosphere outside.
Gabu was at the moment, watching TVsomething he didn't usually do. Sammy noticed that it was some sort of soap opera.
"Huh? Chiaki?" Gabu repeated. "She's she's working right now. She's at her job. Yeah." He was clearly trying to answer the question quickly, for he was into the show he was watching.
It was currently playing dramatic music, and showing a display of ocean waves crashing against a cliff.
"Oh, ok." Sammy responded. He was about to walk away, when he noticed Gabu's eyes.
"What? Are you crying, Gabu?" He asked, astonished. He leaned down and turned his head to try to see his eyes clearer.
"N-no!" Gabu replied instantly. He looked away from Sammy. "Sammy

By the blindfold of humanity
And I saw nothing for what it was
Only what they wanted me to see
But I've cut the blindfold
And I can see clearly
The hatred and greed of people
The foulness of their souls
They're rotten to the core
And I m the only pure one
The one that must wipe them from the face of the earth
And free their eyes from their blindfolds
So that they can see clearly
And be mad like me

Holding us, embracing us
The stars are diamonds scattered in the sky
And we both are drifting slowly, a little sleepy
So I, I will sing you lullaby
Just close your tired eyes, tired eyes
Let yourself be still like the deep blue sea
Fly away from the big, big world, the changing world
And fall into a gentle dream
The night is
Holding us, embracing us
I soon will close my eyes and fall asleep too
The night will pass on by, pass on by
And in the morning
I'll still be here
I'll still love you

I am a bright star shining in the night
I am a flower trying to grow tall
And you hold each of my petals
And plop your kisses on them all

So fragile but I keep flying again
You tell me
Why don't I hold your hand?
And we can fly
I'll keep you safe while we fly

I am a strange song, singing out of tune
I am a red balloon floating in the blue
And here you are smiling
You're floating with me too
I am a pinwheel
Turning in the breeze
I am a little girl
Carving names into the trees
I can be many different things
It's sometimes overwhelming
But no matter

You still love me for me

"Ahaha, yeah! Well only if you want to! It's just that we haven't gone out for a while " Gabriel replied. "Do you want to go to the beach?"
Chiaki's shoulders hunched a bit in surprise. "Huh? I...really?"
"Yeah, of course!" Samuru said, his mouth full of food. "C'mon, say yeah! Or else Gabriel won't take us."
Chiaki laughed a bit at what Samuru had said. "Alright, I'd like to go!"
Gabriel gave a big grin. "Yay! Let's go at 10:00! The beach is pretty in the morning, isn't it? And remember your swimsuit!" He stood up excitedly, and began to wash the dishes in a hurry.
Samuru also quickened his eating pace, and he soon got up and put his plate in the sink, proceeding to rush up the stairs.

They all could smell the salty scent being carried towards them through the wind. The beach was full of people, all laughing and smiling and having a good time. The sand was fine and warm as it piled high between their toes.Winged Miracle Ch 8: Of Sun and Naming2 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
"Mhmm! I'll go set everything up for you guys!" Chiaki replied.
"You need help?" He asked, bringing his arms down, and turning his head towards her.
"No, no! I'll do it! You guys have fun or whatever!"
"Ok! C'mon Samuru!" The two began taking their shirts off in a rush. Once Chiaki realized this, she looked away immediately, blushing.
She walked over to the clear space she saw, and began taking out their things.
Actually, they had lots of things, and Chiaki found some of them unnecessary to bring. Gabriel had prepared a whole basket of food, Samuru insisted on bringing the radio, and they even brought two umbrellas, because of Samuru's claim that one wou

After the screen clearly read "Sent", she turned it off and collapsed onto the bed, without even changing her clothes. She slept soundly for the rest of the night.

How is everything? Is college fun or is it hard? How is the school, Hana? Do you think it's the right one?
Aha or is it too early to be asking these questions
I hope you've both settled in by now, and that you're doing well. I hope your days will pass by without worries, and you'll be happy.

Right now, it's quite fine, so don't worry about me. Many...unexpected things happened already...
But it's ok. I'm alright.

Samuru was still in pajamas and was sitting at the table, his head on it lazily. Gabriel looked up and waved with a happy look on his face. "Good Morning, Chiaki!

Chiaki tilted her head, expressing that he didn't have to really, and then gave a lovely, cheerful smile. "Good morning to both of you! And thank you very much."
With this, Gabriel looked at her with wide eyes, and beamed. "There you go! We finally got you to smile! Like...really, really smile! It looks nice, Chiaki!"
Chiaki gave a small sort of "Heh," shrugging her shoulders.
"We?" Samuru said in a low tone of voice. "What did I do?" He sounded tired.

"Yeah." She replied, not inviting him to come in, for she wanted to type the e-mail in private.
"You know there's a fair that just opened recently! It seems like fun, so we're wondering if you want to go?"
Chiaki typed another sentence, about to reply after she finished it, but Gabriel spoke again. "Oh yeah, and Samuru's paying, 'cause he did the least cleaning yesterday!" By his tone, she could tell he was pleased with what he said.
"Seems good! When are we leaving?" She asked, as she typed. She was always quite skilled at it.
"Hmm...around 1:30 maybe! Eat the lunch that I made first, though, ok? We can stay as long as you want! Is that ok?"
"Uh...yeah! I'll be out in a sec!" She checked the time on the computer. It was almost 11:30. "Hmmm...I think I'll go take a shower first before we leave." She suggested to he

When she woke up, it felt exactly like how she had woken up the day before, although the thought of having to bear with...those two again was clinging onto her, and she really wanted to shake it off, although not possible.
She tried to bear with it, and rubbed her eyes as she cautiously opened the door just a crack. She looked around with a suspicious look, wondering if those two would be around. She saw that the master bedroom was closed, and was relieved a little, feeling (and hoping) that they were still asleep, because she didn't hear anything going on downstairs. She closed the door again, proceeding to change from her pajamas and fix her hair. She then took her bag and walked silently down the stairs and out the door.
After she was fully outside,

And finally, she blinked a couple times, and looked around the brightened room, with a disappointed look on her face. She wasn't disappointed with anything major in particular. She just didn't want to get up so early (11:47 being very early to her...on this particular day.) Finally, she yawned, sprung up from the bed, and rubbed her eyes.

A voice frail and shallow carried itself to the girl, as she sat as straight as she could on her mother's bed--though she felt as weak as her. She turned her head and looked at her father's presence--almost a reflection of her mom's. He was sleeping peacefully, eyes shut tight as if it was difficult to do so, releasing coarse, quivering breaths. She then felt dry fingers on her chin.
"I really am..." Her mother continued, turning her face to hers. She breathed a sigh of painful shame. "Oh, even when just two days ago, you turned fifteen. Please forgive us, Anna."
Anna looked deep into her mother's glassy, pale blue eyes. They looked just like her own, she thought. It just looked more laborious to keep them open.

He had spent all his life on a farm where he was treated with love and care from his master. Every year he was sheared. He didn't like it when he had no more wool on his body, but he always kept in mind that it would grow back, so he decided to bear with it.
Jacques lived on the farm for quite a long time. He watched how the corn became golden, and how the tomatoes ripened into smooth, shining scarlet. He watched how healthy and rich the soil became from the lovely rain. He watched the fluffy, peeping chicks hatch out of their eggs, and miraculously grow into chickens before he knew it. He watched the piglets scurry and squeal around their sleeping mother, the spotted cow moo, and the horses bray and whinny. He never missed the rooster crowing either, because he was the whole farm's wake up call to watch the sunrise peek over the hills. Jacques had always been fascinated by how his whole world around him would suddenly be illuminated with the sun's

Crumble so I may flourish
My fingertips do not touch
the leaves of that oak tree
but they touch the smooth sky
brushing fingerprints on cerulean--
on beaujolais! on amber!
A pastel art
to be only deliberately shaped. only.
I am filled with cumulus thoughts
Fragile droplets of simple crystals
becoming something else--
transforming from reflections of other colours
to its own shade
I may sometimes resort to repugnance
Or rather, a vindictive (towards myself)
idea or perception.
But it cannot soak me.
I cannot be soaked blood.
Soon, a stain is washable. Soon,
an injury can heal.
Oh, how I underestimate myself.
I do not only touch the sky,
but perhaps another planet.
Tell me, take me.
Your deleterious satisfaction
can only be artificial, friend.
Taunt me, torture me.
My retreat is less than a walking distance.
Chronic pain can only be inflicted by one's self.
There are some things to be

Somehow, just as she sensed that she had opened some sort of gate, she knew that Tokyo was not referring to a city, but a base. A base shesomehowremembered as being quite far in the West, ironically, rather than to the East as one would expect. Zephyr, then, must have been the name of someone in the base, she was assured. But what was the calendar? Possibly, this calendar was the gate? Feeling foolish, she put her hand through the tattered paperno luck. It was simply a piece of paper.
