The Little MermaidA shadow just beneath the waters, you see her.The Little Mermaid7 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
Her scales and skin shimmering under the sea foam.
But shes gone to fast, leaving you with an unsure memory,
But you saw her
A seabirds cry of distress, a fishs frantic flopping.
The ocean runs red with emotions that arent yours, but you feel them.
The gleam of her unclothed silhouette, the idea of her bewildered eyes.
You watch her from a distance, not wanting to get involved.
She stumbles on her new appendages, wobbling left and tilting right.
You sigh as she cries out; her skin not meant for this sand, her feet are bleeding.
Shes being held in a weary embrace, the arms of a Prince, her eyes glow.
The shadow of her small figure, through the glass, gowned in fineries to bland for her.
You observe the Love in her eyes, but find only Friendship in his.
Her coral coloured lips part in a laugh you know is silent,
She is not meant for here, she knows, but what girl, fish or human, can lock away Love?

Minna-san!! Konnichiwa!! How are you to day? I hope your fine!!
You remember what we have learnt last time? The "Janai" thing I told you that the negative form of "desu" is "janai" & both of them have a past form "Datta" & "janakatta" .
I told you also that the next lesson (This lesson) will be about the interrogative form but I changed my mind because it's too easy All what you have to do is to add the particle "ka" at the end of the sentence Like this:
"Anata wa Hiroto desu" . "You're Hiroto"
"Anata wa Hiroto desu ka?" .. "Are you Hiroto?"
So I decided to teach you something more useful & I guess you will like it!! How to say "I like something" & "I don't like something"!!
Ladies & gentlemen Today's lesson!!

"You're late." His voice seemed colder then usual.
"I'm sorry. My boyfriend and I had a fight and I didn't sleep and we ended up breaking up."
"That's hardly an excuse." You sighed and went to the computers and started working. Might as well get your mind off the harsh end of your former relationship. You searched through a small nebula and groaned. "Anything yet?" You jumped as your boss seemed to materialize right behind you. You would have fallen out of your chair if he hadn't grabbed your arms to steady you.

1. Make the pairing Lucius/Harry; that will get my hopes up and make me read.
2.Start with Harry living at the Dursleys. Make sure he is locked up in his room, preferably mention beatings and that he hasn't been fed for a week, because that wouldn't make him dead at all.
3.It's Harry's birthday! Of course it is! Make him count the seconds, and EXACTLY at midnight, he'll be in a lot of pain. That is impressive, because it means his relatives at least sprung for a really good alarm-clock for him which also shows seconds. And that creature inheritance (because that's what this is, of course) doesn't care which time of day he was born, but use the exact stroke of midnight instead.
4.Harry passes out and then, when he wakes up, he barely notice anything wrong until he looks in a mirror. Unless he has a tail. In that case include the phrase "Wait? A TAIL?!".

It was your day off and you had nothing to do. You tried to sneak into Zexion's library. But that didn't work. You got a book thrown at you and almost hit your face.
You and Axel were playing Rock Band but you soon grew bored.
Luxord tried to get you to join him in a game of Poker. But you knew better.
Knowing the Brit, it wouldn't be normal poker.

Decision made, I let my foot off the gas, letting the car decelerate. 367 turned his head in my direction, his confusion apparent despite the mask on his head.
"Fall back," I ordered into the radio.
"Unit 531 copy."

"Sir, I'm right on their tail-"

Two confirmations drowned each other out this time. Once I saw both motorcycles fall back far enough behind the dirty Trans Am, I made a U-turn and drove for a few miles before stopping, flanked by the two riders.

I looked up at my mom from my soggy bowl of corn flakes sitting on the kitchen table in front of me, untouched. Breakfast was defiantly not my favorite meal of the day since I would always end up feeling sick after words. Though mom and dad had both commanded me to eat or else they'd lock me in the basement with the Heartless.
When I was little, the very thought of Heartless, or the darkness scared me since mom and dad would always fill my head of adventurous stories of vanquishing the little creatures and defeating the darkness. Now that I was thirteen, I knew they were just kidding around about locking me down there. I hoped they were anyway.
"Hey mom?" I said though a mouthful of cereal.
"Chew your food first, hon."
There wasn't really much to chew, since it was already mush, but I bit into it anyway, then swallowed the lump of flakes. "Where's dad? He said he would teach me some new things with the keyblade today."
