Cresting the hill
While the scent of summer
Of half formed dreams and
Lays heavy like the heat
Of the sun
Little girl in the middle
Hands barely reaching
To those on her
Her mother on the left
Brought out for the day
Father walking by her right
Shades of guilt
Love for the little girl in between
The little girl
Making chains of flowers
Almost but not quite
Out of earshot of
Her parents whispering
Throwing words back and forth
Daggers drenched in lemon juice
The girl who pretends
All is well
She tries to tie
Together the two of them
With her pretty flower chains
Still strong enough
The prettiest flowers
Fall apart like
The man and woman
Chain of flowers
No longer holding together

"Death cannot hold me down"
Some people might get confused by this because it is conventional that life begins at birth and ENDS with death. We also sometimes find ourselves thinking,
"What will happen to me when I die?
Will I turn into a frog or something?
What if I've already spent this life before and this is just some kind of a second cha--"
Well hold that thought!
Let's go back to question number one: What will happen to me when I die? What indeed? What can be behind this mysterious phenomenon when some people even consider this as a wonderful phase as if welcoming death as that of a friend?
indeed, a friend?
There is always light waiting at the end of a dark tunnel.
There is always a rainbow after the rain.
There is no fruit with effortless work.
In order to experience joy, there are countless obstacles to hold us off therefore making that goal even more precious.

A soft knock brought me out of my trance. I sat up rubbing my eyes. "C- Come in." I said. The first words I said in a few days. It slowly opened and Rin stood there. Rin had gone with her brother and it shocked me to see her. It also hurt. She looked a lot like him . . .
"Oh. Hey um Luka." She said nervously standing in my door way. I nodded.
"Hi Rin. Come in. Can you close the door though?" I asked. She nodded rushing forward.
"Yeah Luka." She said sheepishly sitting down on the edge of my bed. We sat there in an awkward silence for a moment.

Twilight vs. Harry PotterBefore I begin I would like to clarify that I'm not either a crazy Harry Potter fan or a Twihard. I've read both series and being completely honest I loved the Harry Potter series. But when I read the Twilight series I didn't think it was that good as people make it out to be. And when I heard someone say that Twilight is better than Harry Potter I felt inspired to make a comparison and show that Harry Potter far more superior than Twilight.

Casey laid awake that night, thinking about what Faze had said. And about Jade. The conversation in the hallway had sent him into spiral of emotions and he didn't know what to think.
Jade had never mentioned Faze, but he couldn't believe they'd ever been a couple. But there did seem to be a lot she was hiding. He felt guilty when he realized he was curious about what it could be. How did Faze know what she looked like underneath her hair? Had she shown him?
The thought caused jealousy to start boiling up inside him. Why would she tell Faze and not him? Maybe he was just overreacting. There could be a multitude of reasons to explain it. He couldn't jump to conclusionsat least not until he got some answers. Now he was really going to have to fight the urge to ask her about it. She would probably get mad if he did. But what could possibly be so wrong with her that she would want to hide it? He knew it was Jade's business and it wasn't his place to go poking around
Sick Day Part 1Nick was not sick. Just because somebody came in the middle of the night and shoved his head full of cotton, sandpapered his throat, and hammered his body with a baseball bat did not make him sick. It made someone in the world an incredibly sadistic fuck, but he was fine. As consciousness swam lazily to the forefront of his mind and his eyes opened, he decided to prove this to himself and sit up. The blanket stayed firmly wrapped around his torso however. Nausea settled heavily into his stomach before he made it to a fully vertical position, and he dropped back onto his pillow with a grunt.Sick Day Part 13 years ago in Romance More Like This

The test was forgotten. As soon as she got Casey back to his room, Jade went straight to the confinement wing like Revis told her, even though she was supposed to go back to the training facility. Suddenly the examination didn't seem nearly as important.
"Revis?" she called as she jogged down the hall toward the cells. "Revis!"
"Over here," he answered, stepping out from a doorway.
A loud crashing noise came from inside the room, like a chair had been thrown.
Jade walked up to him. "Revis, what's going on? What's going on in there?"
She made to go through the door, but Revis barred it with his arm. "Wait, Jade. Don't go in."
"Wait? Why'd you tell me to come down here if I can't go in?"
He glanced over his shoulder into the room as another crash sounded, louder and harder this time. "Just hold on. Tamm and Jarrin are getting her restrained."
"Restrained?" She tried to peer over Revis's shoulder. "Why does she need to be restrained?"

Witch and Wizard"Please my wize One, or if it is that you are indeed wize; will you tell me what your eyes are gazing at Right this instant?" The One Who Is The One's voice calmly spoke to the stiff man that stood before him. The man stared at nothing in particular, though he prefers it this way. It was best not to meet this vile man's eyes.Witch and Wizard4 years ago in Profiles More Like This
He had no response, he stood his ground and waited for his punishment to come, for the words to be spoker, or rather, the action to be done. And as if on cue, The One stood up; a woosh of air following his movements, and he raised a boney-like finger towards the man and stared behind him before doing what he was meant to do. He made eye contact with the young boy behind the man, and gave a small smirk followed by a dark chuckle.
"And to think your father was a wize man, apparently even I stand corrected at times." And with those last words, meeting the hazel eyes of the pethetic boys, he slightly moved his arm and the man vanished right before them. Da

It was a time to be joyous. The evening of Christmas Eve had begun with a magical entrance. Flakes of ashen snow trickled under the pale sky, decorated with streaks of pink and purple hues that reflected from a grand sunset. Cold breeze easily filled the lonely streets, as most people had opted for the snug and toasty warmth of a home occupied by their family members.
Although this wasn't the case for Zack, he equally felt a great joy and relief. The strenuous mission had finally come to its end. Earlier, the squad spent a tiring five hours working to retrieve Marilyn Hutton's earrings, an impromptu mission thought in the nick of time. The plan was simple - sedate her, take hold of the jewelry and leave no evidence - but even a trivial error could blow their cover. Zack supervised his team from the reconnaissance vehicle, as the rest spread out to play their roles. As Ryan watched over the perimeter, Nicky and Dawn blended in the afternoon Christmas Eve function as guests. Dawn managed

Ellis ran as fast as his steel-tipped boots could carry him, buying a few extra seconds by sliding over the hoods of vehicles that he could've easily gone around. The guttural roar of an impending Tank sunk an arrow of panic in the boy's body as he heard the thing getting closer and closer with each car that was being hammered by those horrific bulging arms. It was obviously trying to clear a path for itself, although whether the beast knew Ellis was there or not still wasn't quite certain. Instead of waiting around to found out, the boy sprinted off as gracefully as he could so that Georgia wouldn't suffer whiplash at age one.
Nick was unable to pinpoint where the sudden crashing noise had come from until he saw Ellis bounding towards him in a terrified frenzy. His first thought was that the kid had been carelessly jumping from car to car, causing even more of a racket than his heavy w

Both are painful, petrifying, and call for PANIC!
Pretty similar right?
Except in battle, you can still die.
My senses become more enhanced during a fight, I absorb everything around me;
The metallic smell of blood,
The shriek of monsters and wounded heroes,
Watching my friends fight for their lives,
Feeling the beads of sweat drip down my face,
And the bitter taste of battle.
But the battle is also a thrill.
Charging in, I scream my battle cry to the stormy sky.
Lightning flashes in great bursts and thunder bellows above our heads.
My knife shines in the short-lived light, and I know this victory is mine.
My fight is won.
I begin to call out unsettling orders to my fellow heroes,
After all, having no strategist would be like having bread and no butter,

"Hey.. Mae? Is that you?" called out the nicely dressed Roy Blackwell.
The male was wearing a black pin striped tuxedo that was nicely pressed. It was complimented with a white collared dress shirt and a satin red tie. His dark hair was styled and tousled with gel for the special occasion.
He had spent the entire night searching the crowd for Mae. He saw her silhouette from where he stood and was certain it was Mae.
"There you are. I haven't seen you all night. What are you doing out here?"
The scent of cinnamon candles drifted in the air and pleasant holiday tunes could be heard coming from the packed mansion. The Blackwell family was known to host some of the greatest parties. However, this did not perk even a bit of interest in the young girl that leaned against one of the mansion's pillars.
As he approached the girl, his grey eyes widened.

Jade's mind was in a whirl as she walked away from Casey's room. She'd dealt with patients before--everyone in the Sublevel had. Medical training was a requirement. But she couldn't understand why she felt tingly from the way he looked at her. She couldn't understand why she'd gotten a thrill from running her hands over his toned torso.
And she hated it.
She hated the feeling she got when he looked at her with those eyes. Those large, honest brown eyes... Jade growled in irritation and stopped to kick the steel wall with the toe of her combat boot, sending a faint ringing echoing down the hall. She hated his eyes. She hated him. And most of all, she hated that he made her feel like opening up. Nobody--besides Revis--had ever made her feel that way before. When they'd been talking, she found herself wanting to tell him more, to get to know him better. That meant she was becoming attached. And becoming attached meant becoming vulnerable.

The quiet whisper startled her. She looked up from the pistol she was cleaning and was met by the sight of Casey's soft brown eyes looking at her. She gave him a gentle smile. "Morning, sunshine."
He groaned and lifted a hand to rub his eyes. "What happened?"
"You passed out during the lock test."
"Oh right. Was that supposed to happen?"
"No. I guess it was because of your head injury."
His brow wrinkled in confusion. "But I thought Revis said I was okay."
"Yeah, well, I guess side effects were unavoidable anyway."
He closed his eyes again. "Do you have any idea how long they'll last? My head kills."
"Sorry. No," she answered apologetically. "But I've got good news."
His eyes opened to gaze at her again. Jade struggled to look anywhere but at them. She enjoyed staring at his eyes but was trying to convince herself she didn't. Every second she spent with him, she felt herself liking him more and more. And no matter how hard she tried to deny it, the feeling

Off we go to sleep in our little dreams
For most it is of happiness and love
And for most it is pain and fear
The fear of loss

The fear of solitude
The fear of the heart

But one dream that scares me the most
Is a dream without you
Were you are not there to comfort me
Not there to hold you
Not there to feel you
Not there to love you
Dreams may come and go
But the thought without you
Is a nightmare of its own

To shine through the future as beacons
Of the truth of love
She died before we met
These are the great love stories never written
Lives lived out in the sorrow of the soul

Blood Drain is a Dremora from the plain of Oblivion. Though he used to be mortal once but he does not remember those times and does not care. He lives in Mehrunes Dagon's plain of Oblivion for it was he that put him there in the first place. If you ask this God of Destrution how he came to Oblivion he would say "He was once a mortal of kindness...I disliked him for he disliked me....so I had him killed...and send to my realm to be my eternal servent." Blood Drain is not his real name it is a name he gave to the mortals cause his real name could not be pronounced in mortal tougne. He has been in ever Elder Scrolls series but shown himself more in Morrowind, Oblivion, and Skyrim. Blood Drain is centuries old but for a demon...he looks kinda good for his age.
His involvement in Morrowind was mostly Dagon's curiosity about Kammus- Azura's Champion- and there he helped him escape a cave that held Kammus there....though his intentions wer

Celestial Centre City was its name and not only was it infested with celestials parading around as humans, it was one of the largest portal cities in the world. It had a strong connection with Elysium that allowed people to physically pass through, but only if they had a keycard. A celestial being was honestly trapped without one, and this is the reason many illegals never saw the land of their birth. Unless you knew the right people, it was impossible to recieve a keycard without registering with the goverment and forging one was near impossible.
There weren't always this many celestials roaming the earth. A long, long time ago, a holy being was banished to Earth. He settled as a human and fell in love with a women who beared him a son who the Elysium called Fitz, or illegitimate.

When the light comes from us
When the life sleeps
When the love starts
When the pain can't sing.
