They haven't been getting along, at all, for the past few months. And it's been getting at their mother. Her, their father, and baby brother are going on a trip.
And they've been acting up so much, their mother think it's best for them to stay. She thinks this may be a chance for them to spend some time together.
In her mind, it could be fun. For them, it's like torture.
"No friends over, either." Their father added sternly, waiting for a response. Greg and Rodrick nodded, and let out a low sigh, watching as their father walked out the door.
"This is going to be so boring.." Greg mumbled, trudging to the living room. He fell on the couch, only to get pushed off. "Hey!"
"Not for long." Rodrick grinned, getting out his phone as he layed out on the couch.
Greg squinted his eyes, "What are you doing..?"
"Nothing." He said, as he started texting.

It's not worth much.
We walk along,
Never anywhere to actually go.
We say things,
We never mean.
It's an endless cycle,

Of our own invention.
One thousand to go.
Words we have spoken,

An Endless cycle,

There wasn't much to do in an empty laboratory. Some screens blinked with an "Error" sign, perhaps some broken tubes lied within the floor, and some deteriorated chairs stood there. You could only hear the sound of some vague typing and rare giggles from time to time. They were alone, too. Sitting on a dirty blanket they found on one of those strange drawers. "Gog, I can't believe you are sitting on that." She was asleep at the time, or used to be, at least, until her head began hurting and Karkat offered his lap for her to rest in. She was sure he meant "sleeping", but who would waste time in that when a stubborn, grouchy and cold troll offers you his lap to put your head on?
"Karkat, listeeeen!" She said a little louder this time.
He moved his attention away from the computer and looked down to where Jade was.
"What is it, now." He flicked her forehead. Jade squealed.

"Experts still haven't been able to explain the sudden brightness of one of the northern stars last night," said a reporter on the television in the bunker's main room. "But some people are already calling it a 'Christmas Miracle,' a sign of God's continuing love for humanity and His desire to give us hope, and having it happen on Christmas night seems to be a sign of better things to come. Astronomers assert that as of yet there is still no proof of –"

And The NextCloud grumbled to herself as she raced down the sidewalk, holding her backpack over her head to block most of the downpour as she ran. She prided herself on being responsible and on time for her after school job, but today had been a bit of a disaster, which had led up to her situation at the moment.

She finally came to the corner across from the diner, and she hurriedly checked for cars before running across the street, kicking up water as she did. She threw her backpack over her shoulder once she was under the diner's overhang. Grabbing a hair tie out of her pocket, she pulled her curly, now wet, hair into a messy ponytail and, pushing open the door and walking in, threw the other waitress a smile, hurrying into the back to grab an apron and change into her uniform.

Angel was nine, but she was still flower girl. Nudge, Kyra, and Ella were bridesmaids, so they stood up there too. Gazzy and Iggy were really too old for this, but they were both ring bearers. I saw them, and I smiled. Fang was just my escort up there, so he was happy. During the rehearsal, he just stared at me. I was supposed to be thinking about them and their wedding, but I couldnt. What about mine? I know I wasnt going to be married for a little while, but I could still think about it. Who would be my bridesmaids? Nudge and Kyra. It would be kind of like Moms, except Ella would be my maid of honor, since she was my sister. I was staring ahead of me, so I didnt even realize when it was supposedly over.

The din of the waiters and servers setting up the many tables in front of them echoed behind her; the grating clatter of silverware wore against his ears.Piano Man4 years ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
He turned his attention back to Sarah. So much clearer, so much more pleasant... His shoulders, which had been tensed, relaxed, and he ran his fingers over the piano keys reverently, letting the background noise fade away.
And a pure, clear note from Sarah cracked.
His hands stopped over the keys, turning his head slightly and shifting on the hard piano bench so he could hear her better. Sarah had recovered beautifully, falling into a lower note and continuing the scale as she had been doing, but he could hear the small tremble in her voice, the quick gasps of breaths between notes. There was silence, for a moment, after Sarah finished the scale, before she began to sing again. She was determined, he was sure, to shake off

Three figures lay slumped against the wall, faces pale and drawn. They were unconscious – knocked over the head with clubs. Usually it wouldn't have affected them had the weapon not been wood, but as a matter of fact it had been oak. Pretty damn hard – especially when it came crashing down at the speed of a bullet.
Nevertheless, one was starting to wake up. His eyebrow twitched, arcing beautifully over his lidded left eye. Had his eyes not been closed, they would have been emerald green… the colour of the sea.
"Mm?" he put a hand up to his head slowly and then opened one eye. He was no stranger to darkness; his vision was almost perfect in the twilight that clothed the room around him.
He could see the shabby wallpaper lining the walls – a colour that had once been cream that was now more of a faded yellow – and the linoleum flooring running under his body. It felt cold and slippery and he sat up hastily, longish-black hair falling in front of his eyes.

Gutter- Potatoes Loch, many years ago, had discovered that he was a morning person. This was to the dismay of his father, who, despite having to wake up early most mornings, had always been more partial to sleeping late. Loch had made it a habit of running to his father's bedroom and jumping onto his bed to wake him up as a morning ritual. At least, a ritual until his father ordered Opello to keep Loch occupied when he woke up in the mornings.Gutter- Potatoes5 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

At first, you’re not sure on what to say.
After months of knowing you, Jack just told you he loves you.
Jack Frost. A spirit. Immortal. The stuff of legends. In love. With you.
Your head is swimming.
But then something arises within you. A small, soft warmth. Like a single candle’s flame flickering brightly in a dark room filled with uncertainty.
Slowly, it grows, filling you and steadying your beating heart and racing mind. All other thoughts, all other feelings, are forgotten.
Just one remains.
You’ve never been surer of something in your life.
You smile warmly at Jack, who is staring at you, mouth slightly agape as he waits for you to say something, body stuck in the moment just after his confession.

The building was… different. Not like the usual Daybreak outposts, but Lisa wasn't complaining. Buildings like these were rarely used to hide Daybreakers and the Wild Powers because these houses were way too noticeable.
Lisa shut the blinds of the nearest window after peering out of it to see down the boulevard. The street was empty. And she was the only one in the building. Good. It was safer that way.
A rich neighbourhood, with this house smack bang in the middle – outlandish with large balconies and a steep drive. No vehicles were parked outside; Lisa had arrived here by bus – seeming to be as normal as any human. But she wasn't a normal human; she was an author and the leader of one of the biggest organisations on Earth.

Stu stood alone on the sidewalk. A large duffel bag was at his feet. Instead of his usual attire, he wore a short-sleeved hoodie. This one too had the word "STAB" on it in the green text. Instead of pants and boots, he wore black shorts, and black sandals. He turned around to look at the store behind him. The sign on top read Renn's Videodrome. He looked back down and pulled his cellphone out. He was about to make a call to Sadako. She told him to meet her and the others outside this particular store. He had no idea why since he thought they would meet at the airport. Sadako had a summer home in Japan, and she had invited Stu, Freddy, Jason, and Michael to spend a week with her at her summer home. So it only made sense to meet at the airport. Perhaps they were just meeting up at this spot before heading off to the airport. He found it odd that she invited only guys, but he didn't question it.
