Don't Hate Me- Chptr 2October was fast approaching, putting up jack'o'lanturns and decorations in its wake. Dirk was sitting on the front porch of the apartment complex he stayed in with the three other blonde kids, one foot tapping the cracked concrete while his other supported an elbow and, in turn, chin. He stubbed out a cigarette, releasing the last of the smoke with a long, heavy sigh.Don't Hate Me- Chptr 23 years ago in Romance More Like This
Rose hated the fact that he smoked, not allowing him to do so in the apartment, even though the majority of the inhabitants could not care less. He rubbed at the bridge of his nose, aviators momentarily askew. He replaced them promptly as the door hinges behind him squawked in protest to being opened. The worn soles of shoes slapped down the stairs, followed by the thud of someone falling into a sitting position beside him.
Dirk shot a sideways glance, eyes visible past the edge of his sunglasses, thanks to the angle. Rose met them directly with her icy violet gaze before looking out at the dirty street. Their little end

"Dammit, stop destroying my house, aru!"
China's request was completely ignored by the three tiny countries running around him. Korea had a towel cape tied around his neck and he kept jumping on and off the couch onto a makeshift bed out of pillows. Taiwan had yanked all of the curtains down and wrapped them around herself in a dress-type fashion so she could pretend to be a Chinese princess. And finally, Japan had raided the kitchen and was threading an incredibly long string with pickled plums and radishes hanging on it.
You could practically see the steam floating off of the livid Chinese man. His face was pink with frustration and his fists were clenched by his sides. He couldn't take all the screaming and laughing and running and jumping . . .
"That's it, aru! I give up!" He threw his hands up in the air angrily. "You

There it was, sitting on the counter in plain view, the lid left casually to the side. The last slice of triple chocolate cake. Anyone in the house, with a brain knew not to touch it. Because if they did the consequences could be fatal.
And of all the kids who could've walked into the kitchen, it had to be the feisty blonde and calm red-head. Mello and Matt were their names. Mello was first to notice the cake. His expression immediately perked and he scampered to the counter. Matt looked up suspiciously, from his game, then noticed Mello's target.
"MELLO!!" He cried out, dropping his game and tackling said boy. Mello yelped then hit the floor, he spun to Matt. "WHAT THE **LL MATT!!?" "That's L's cake, you can't eat it." He responded, bluntly. "Ooo yeah, cause I'm terrified of L." "Don't eat it. Please?" Mello stared at his friend thoughtfully, then before Matt could blink, he scrambled up and sprinted to the cake. He sent a spine tingling smirk at Mat
Don't Hate Me- Chptr 1The school day dragged by slowly, every tick of the clock seemingly pausing longer than the last. It was the first friday of the school year and everyone was on the edge of their seats; intent eyes set on the second hand slowly creeping past the six. By this point, the teacher had set aside his binder and yard stick, glancing up every so often to check the time.Don't Hate Me- Chptr 13 years ago in Romance More Like This
Seated in the back of the room was a blonde teen, half-lidded eyes hidden behind sunglasses. He was extremely pale beyond the freckles that dappled his nose and shoulders with messy blonde hair and an open black and orange jacket hanging over his tee and jeans. He tapped his fingers to the light tick tick tick of the clock, standing up calmly as the bell screamed dismissal.
In a flurry of papers, pushing and talking the room cleared out. The teacher sighed, rubbing his forehead. He almost missed the lingering student who was calmly slinging his bookbag over his shoulder, pushing in his chair and shuffling toward the door

I opened my eyes
In the middle of the night
The stars were bright
So beautiful under the moonlight
He grabbed my arm so tight
And said: tonight
I'll be your knight
And everything will be alright
I looked in his deep dark eyes
That peaceful look in those eyes
My eyes shed tears like rain
Can you really erase my pain
& make me smile happily again
Can you really heal my heart
After it's been falling apart
Will you really stay with me
And never turn your back on me
He smiled and said peacefully
I will love you for eternity
I'll fight and die for you happily
No more crying my love, my dear
I won't let you shed more tears
I can heal your wounds and fears
Just Say I do
And be mine tonight

The soft silk brush against his bare frame as he rolled over in the lush bed. The cool, slick fabric was wrapped around his otherwise naked body, warming nicely to his feverish temperature within moments of making contact with his skin. The slender male rolled again, not having found his intended target in the first attempt. Hey, it was a big bed, a couple could get lost in the thing....
Finally he made contact with the object of his desire; another body, this one just as bare as the first, and even more so since the red comforter had slipped from the upper half of his body.
Jode smirked quietly to himself and snuggled closer to the man, placing a soft kiss right in the center of his perfectly sculpted chest. Aaron had a body that would have put a Greek god like Adonis to shame, and a face so perfect that it could only be understatedly described as angelic. Jode had always felt so plain in comparison to Aaron. The simple demon was unworthy of Aaron's l

Rain walked back into the hall and Lucy was thankful to see that he'd managed to find something to put on. He was still mostly naked, though he now had loose, brown trousers that covered his bottom half. They were stained with blood and dirt, but then so was the rest of his body so it made little difference to the wolf's appearance.
Frost was still watching Lucy with curiosity though the young woman didn't move. She was waiting to be attacked, or at least be hurt in some way or another by these two men, but so far neither of them had raised a finger against her.
"So how about this guided tour then?" Rain asked, stretching his arms above his head so that his muscles bunched and moved beneath his skin. Lucy eyes flickered over him seeing that even in human form that the wolf would be a dangerous fighter. She could only guess what weapons the wolf was trained in as she'd heard the Alpha Male was a viscous opponent in both wolf and human form.

I don't remember what it was that jolted me awake that night. Maybe it was the thunder storm making the house shiver as lightening filled the sky with light. Even upon that circumstance everything was pitch black as I scanned the room. My eyes wouldn't adjust, they could hardly stay open. Then something shifted in the corner. I immediately shuffled back against the wall in fear. That something moved closer. With my lack of sight I could hear the air pressure shift every step they took. Finally it stopped, just on the other side of my bed. There was an outline of a person with short, messy hair.
"Who are you?" They chuckled as if they expected those words.
"The questions are always the same. The name's Toby but what does it matter who I am? Your fate is just the same."
"What does that even mean?" A burst of thunder rocked the walls as lightening fl

It was still and silent outside, not even the wind answered her. No tiny, ugly men come to hide in her bed, no pure white barn owls beating on her window with its wings, and no tall and handsome Goblin King to challenge her to get through his Labyrinth.
Nothing at all.
The girl sighed heavily. What was she expecting anyway? It was only a story after all. A stupid children's tale her mother told her to keep her out of trouble. She wanted the trouble now.
She climbed into bed, dejected. She wanted a place full of magic and secret and adventure. And she'd stay there, forever.
Just as she was teetering on the edge of sleep and as Morpheus welcomed her with open arms, something jabbed her sharply in the side. She jerked awake to the sound of giggles, high, shrill ones. Thinking it must be her little brother, she grabbed

Over the Moon : One ShotIt was your usual tragic tale: a bastard child is born out of wedlock, and the loving couple dumps the poor baby at an orphanage. Shortly thereafter, they split up because they couldn't bear the reminder of what they had done, which they got every time they looked at one another. Well, that's what I assumed had happened, at least. It's not like I hoped that had happened. I wasn't bitter, after all. Actually, I quite hoped that they had gotten married and lived happily ever after, perhaps having a child or two they actually intended to keep.Over the Moon : One Shot4 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Ayup. I was the little bastard. Like I said, though, I didn't harbor any bitter feelings or resentment or none of that! Actually, I was quite content with my life in the orphanage. I didn't even really find the tale of myself all that tragic, either. It was everyone else who seemed to see such tragedy when they looked at me. Then again, it may have been more my bloodline that they felt was so tragic.

With a small whimper, he rolled over. "P-please... only a... a little long-...er..." Ciel muttered as he protected his eyes against the bright light that shone through the window.
Sebastian turned around to look at his master, and couldn't help but chuckle. A small smile curled the demon's lips. He walked towards the boy and bent over him. "Young master, please."
Ciel's eyelids trembled slightly before he opened them. His azure and purple eyes faced the crimsons of Sebastian. A soft noise escaped his lips, before he shot up, startled of how short the distance was between him and his servant. "What the hell was that, Sebastian?!" he exclaimed in shock.
Sebastian took a step back and showed a hurt expression. "I apologise, young master," he spoke and turned to the food car to prepare Ciel's morning tea.

It was summer break. He should have been in his lab, entertaining himself with the various half-completed experiments he had laying about, but no. He was at Shibusen, listening to Shinigami-sama ramble on about 'the dangers of letting experiments run loose on the campus'. Stein did his best to look as if he was paying attention, although the conversation itself was the last thing on his mind. Spirit looked on in amusement; silently snickering at the situation, not unlike ones that were had so many years ago when Stein was his partner. "Honestly Stein, you should know better than to let things like that wander around unsupervised!" "It was completely supervised, Shinigami-sama " Stein sighed, mind elsewhere.

It wasn't the pictures or clippings she was looking at though. Where normally there was her pale faced, dark haired reflection staring back at her, Sarah saw a man with a wealth of fair blond hair, his slanted eyes under winged eyebrows stared back into her hazel gaze. She slowly rose and moved toward the mirror; the man watched her approach, smirking. "What did you just say?" Sarah asked not believing that she was talking to people in mirrors in the first place.

It was a cold, harsh night when Lucy's father was murdered. She hadn't been able to sleep, lying awake in her bed as rain attacked her window and lightning flashed across her room. She wasn't frightened of the weather; storms happened often enough in Solace but something in the air made her heartbeat race. She'd heard of magic, of the vampires from the Shadowlands and though she'd never felt their touch she knew the air was tainted with their dark presence.
Her light, blue eyes flashed towards her door as she heard a woman scream and she could do nothing but curl under her sheets in worry. It had to be one of the maids, she knew, as there were no other women in the Manor. Feet clattered down the hallway and past her room and though the young woman didn't know it then, she had a deep fear of what the maid had just discovered.

He was on his way to make sure that his little half-sister, Yukina, was safe. Now, normally, Hiei would just use his Jagon eye to see her, which was one of the reasons that he chose to have it implanted. However, Hiei had taken it upon himself to do this for himself this time.

The reason for this was obvious to any demon with a sense of smell. H
