"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.

"Lilly, Lilly. Calm down sweetie. I'm not anywhere. I'm at my friend's house, you remember um Gakupo right?" I ask. Tch. Lying was so easy. Those mushy girls would believe anything.
"Really? Your not lying are you?" She asked.
"Have I ever lied to you?" I make excuses just as readily as I know how to.
"Okay . . . Hey um Saturday my parents won't be home all night, not until Sunday evening. Do you uh want to spend the night?" She asked nervously. I smiled. It's just the one night stand that I look forward too.

I didnt go out of my room for another four days, mostly crying myself to sleep or reading Saving Sarah Jane over and over again till I sobbed some more. I was a complete mess, for the simple fact that I had not done anything about Alex. Al and James made their nightly visits to tell me what was going on with people and to smuggle in some food for me, even if mum had offered to make me something. James told me that dad spent most of his time writing secret letters to someone, or muttering to himself around the house.
On that Thursday, an owl came up to my window and pecked its beak against the glass. Twiddle, my owl, was let into the room, and spread her little wings out as far as she could, and making a splat on my bed. If only you could bring heavier things, I joked, taking the letter from her foot. Then I opened up the envelope, taking out the letter hastily, then my eyes began to stare

"Don't be so loud" Cas said and he glanced back at the current house of the Winchesters to check if they didn't hear anything. "What do you mean with 'confessing'?" Cas asked, quite inquisitively. Baltazar scoffed. "Aren't you the innocent one. I mean your crush on him, Cas!" He said and he pointed at the window of the Winchesters. Cas tried to hide his blush for Baltazar but he couldn't. "Isn't it true that you wanted help with that?" Baltazar asked. He searched for his eyes and he laughed.
"Come on, just... do it" "do what?!" "Kiss him already!" Baltazar blurted out. Cas' eyes widened. "I can't just kiss him, Baltazar. I can't" Cas said and he looked down, thinking why he ever told Baltazar about his secret. Baltazar sighed and he reached into his pocket and he drew out something like a small

The next few days dragged by slowly, until Saturday, when Al came up to me one day at lunch, he threw a letter onto my lap and said, From mum. He threw a separate letter also on my lap a few seconds later, From dad.
Then, he sounded even less thrilled, From Teddy. He said, throwing the last letter into my lap. The ruddy owl cant tell me from you, its just sad. When I knew he was actually upset that Teddy had written to me, and not Al. Teddy wasnt really related to us, yet, but he was the person that I have ever gotten closest to. Even when I was younger, he could always get me to smile by changing his hair color. It was slightly disappointing that he wasnt in Hogwarts anymore, but he was like dad and he was going to become an Auror. Victoire would soon be his wife, hopefully, so that would make him an official part of our family. Teddy also stood up for me when eve

Zack kept a detailed eye on the dozen set of surveillance videos that Ryan had rigged. Several of them showed the lounging areas, while a few focused on the entrance and hallways of the elite club. The Christmas function at the great hall was a good opportunity to find the criminals he had been tracking down. Zack's eyes observed the activities of the few suspects meticulously. With the help of Ryan's software program that highlighted each of the cons, Zack studied their behavior and their acquaintances. Having consumed himself in work, he heavily hesitated to reach for his phone when it rang.
Until he saw the caller ID.
"Ryan, can you take over for a minute?" Zack motioned a finger to the phone he had placed against his ear, and Ryan nodded. Zack moved to a dark corner in their reconnaissance van. He clicked on the slim screen.
"Hi Zack." A delicious voice warmed his ears. "It's been some time, hasn't it?"
"Yeah." He cleared his throat. "How are you doing, Ava?"

My mind is clouded by frustration and fear and confusion, but through it all I know that I want so much to touch her face, to feel her warmth under my skin again.
I forgot what she feels like.

A harsh laugh yanks me from my thoughts. No you don't! She's a traitor! A venomous voice- belonging to the source of sick laughter -spits out at me. How could you ever love anyone like her?

Rylie was pleasantly surprised. She looked up to him, an easy smile on her lips as a simple token of gratitude. Their eyes met, but only briefly. Something caught Rylie's eyes, and she darted her gaze above his well-tousled head. Jace followed the direction of her glance, and gave a half-chuckle when he saw what it was.
"Smooth." He said, as his hazel orbs caught her blue-grey ones. Seeing the rising red in her cheeks, Jace teasingly nudged her and whispered into her ear, "You'd think they would be more creative about where they'll hang mistletoes around here."
He made a grand gesture of looking at both sideways before playfully adding, "People sure want a smooch in between the sick ward room and the busy corridor. Talk about getting that private moment right."
Rylie bit her lip to suppress a giggle, but couldn't resist a wide smile. Jace rubbed the back of his neck and grinned. He enjoyed nothing more than seeing her bright, amused eyes that he had incited. "So, is that a yes on havin

The smell was horrific; it was hard to sit next to him at the table.

He growled, flipping his gun around to jab it into the face of his attacker, watching those mindless eyes widen in something like the ghost of surprise as it fell to the ground.

You said I'd be in your heart.
You said you'd never forget
All what I gave, all what I did.
All what we shared.
The wind blows and it seems that nothing happened

The birds sing and nobody hears.
The whole sky waited for us
But you never tried.
You never saw,
You never screamed.
You never fought.
I'd never quit.
I wish my name didn't disappear from your lips.
I hope you still think of my eyes.
I hope my strokes still live on your cheeks.
I hope you miss

No more songs,
No more games, no more jokes.
Just you and your walls,
Your pride, your noes.

Or a beautiful story I wanted to draw.

Dawn chucked the last video tape onto a messy pile of old-fashioned black tapes. She had spent the entire week analyzing four large boxes of the obscure surveillance videos, documenting information vital to the drug trafficking case the squad was working on. The suspect was highly-experienced; his methods were conscientious and faultless, rendering him near-to untraceable. Watching videos of his past workplaces, Dawn had marked each of his movements and contacts to find a pattern within his modus operandi.
