Worse Thing's In Life.
A tall, middle-aged man walked through the halls of his mansion. He had dark brunette hair and icy blue eyes. He wears a huge white jacket with belt tails dangling at the back and a collar that went past his neck.
Silence. He tired again.
"Mokuba are you here?"
Silence again. He walked through the corridors towards his office. Everything was neat and tidy, a left-over stack of paperwork was left in a stack of yellow files; upon the desk near his black and silver keyboard was also a half eaten bagel and a now, cold cup of coffee. Nothing out of the ordinary...

The Capital is the home of The Red Queen. Her kingdom is usually covered with lights and banners but tonight it is shrouded with dense black clouds. The remaining bright spotlights shone through the clouds like the sun tearing through clouds after a rainstorm.

Minutes trundled by as slowly as hours: all the while Zoemo had been sat on the bed, head still clasped between his palms. The clock faced him and continued to tick avidly, as if waiting for a certain something to happen.
And it was then that the sound of footsteps roused Zoemo from his pessimism; the clock went silent beneath the sound of the shaking floorboards.
Looking as alert and frightened as a mouse, Zoemo stared at the door(which in the muddle of panicking, he had forgotten to investigate). He tilted his head, raising one subtly pointed ear to the air, and tried to assess the sounds around him: a constant thudding of somebody's feet

Chapter 1- At School
My name is Scoot, 14 years old. I was born on 25th of May 1996. I don't know my parents and live in an appartment by myself, but get food from my best friend's parents. I live in Caernarfon, Wales.
I was walking to school when I came across a cat stuck in a tree. Me, myself, am not a cat person, but I couldn't just watch it be stuck there. The tree was about as high as a building, but I just jumped there in a second, and slowly climbed down with the cat.

So far from that my lips get to rub yours in a tender kiss.
So close I am of you that if I speak you can listen to my words;
So Far from that you can listen to the words of my heart.
so close I am of you that if you fall, I can raise to you;
so far from being able to raise my heart of all the falls that has suffered.

Miru was having a glorious time. He couldn't remember having so much fun!
There was cheering for the clowns and the acrobats; applauding the plays and puppet shows that were put on; yelling encouragement during the spine-tusseling and wrestling matches; laughing as the dibbuns battled in the greasy pole event; shouting happily as the Redwallers and woodlanders raced one another in all the different races: the three-pawed race, the sack race, the wall-top race, the boat race, and the swim race.
It was during the swim race that the pine marten finally thought of Skipper, wondering why the otter wasn't in participating.

It was the day of the feast.
And what a day, and what a feast, it was going to become. For it was not only for the official naming of the season, Summer of Many Blessings, but also the Golden Jubliee of Abbot Fir, as well as a celebration of brave new arrivals, and brave old friends.
The abbey was polished to perfection, a dusky red jewel set in a sea of emeralds under a sapphire sky. It was a truly magnificent sight, bathed in the golden sunlight as a soft breeze rustled the forest all around the red sandstone building.
Scattered all about the abbey, on the grounds and inside Great Hall and Cavern Hole, were long tables swathe
1000 Demons Ch1Twenty four hours, seven days a week. The plethora of pain and agony took on an endless cycle. The suffering the world once knew paled in comparison to this new threat. Starvation, poverty, murder, persecution, war, none of it came close. Such topics would sound like a trip to the dentist to any beast; still alive at least. The glimmering light of hope at the end of the tunnel grew depressingly dimmer as days dragged on; every minute, another hundred or so dying. Any plan for divine intervention must've ultimately been dropped, since Hell came to earth.1000 Demons Ch11 year ago in Short Stories More Like This

Fur Fighters4With his goal of becoming a Fur Fighter so close at paw, the thought began manifesting even in his dreams. Trapped in what seemed the deepest, darkest part of a rundown city, his body slowly turned as he surveyed his surroundings. The dark foreboding alleyway he stood in the center of, stretched into oblivion with the faint expression of lamplight in the distance. The starless skies consumed by utter blackness, created a void of displeasure within the fox's head. The emptiness of the lot caused Reiji to tremble, hugging and petting his poofy tail for comfort. It was then he noticed an odd yellow glow on his wrist. Realization hit him like oncFur Fighters41 year ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

"Yes Mr. Akito, and I'll be real careful with everything. You could count on me."
Waking up at 10:00 a.m., Reiji had started his job at the museum early. Akito Evans, mouse owner and director of the building, had just finished giving the fox instructions. The two have known each other since Reiji's middle school field trip, and since then became good friends. Clad in a tanned shirt, tie, and brown coat, his fine posture presented authority, and civility. There was a cleanliness about him, at how well groomed his fur was and spotless his claws. Though he was smaller than the fox, his countena

Smack! A furry paw slithered out of the blankets of a queen sized bed and hit the snooze button on an alarm clock. Out of the covers yawned a six clawed ferret who was reluctant to get out of bed. "Oh who listens to that fox's dumb radio show anyway and why is my alarm set to that station?"

Reiji, a young golden furred fox of seventeen autumns, frantically fiddled with the padlock on his locker. Being extremely excited for what was about to take place, his paws couldn't quite enter the correct combination, causing him further frustration. The event which was about to take place caused other beasts who have already left their text books to storm out the front doors; speaking about how "it" was about to start.Fur Fighters ch22 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

"There. That wasn't so bad, was it?" asked the stoat, taking a half-empty bottle from the operating table and drinking deeply.
The unconscious soldier didn't answer. Dr. Sagacious D. Josephson grinned wryly and took another swig from the bottle. Then he reached into his pocket and withdrew a slightly squashed cigar, which he lit from the old iron lantern next to Wilhelm's skull. The stoat enjoyed a few seconds of uninterrupted smoking before a voice floated through the tent flap.

Arpeggio Part 1It has been two summers since my day of triumph, of sorrow, of freedom. So it is that I finally put quill to parchment and record my post melancholy so that future generations may learn from my trial, from my sadness, as well as my bliss. There is something about retelling a story, whether it be orally, through song, or through the simper medium I use, writing, that sets foot in the world in a wondrous way. A way for your voice to echo through the ages and whisper, "I was here. I was alive."Arpeggio Part 12 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

As moonlight shines on crystal shores,
Whilst the heaven's cry and shout.
When tears from above cascade to earth,
The sea shall thrash about.
The howling winds rattle my abode,
Atop the cliffs that night.
Their tortured sobs still pain my ears,
Seeking shelter from their plight.
With darkness consumed, I hide in my room,
Cornered and huddled in fright.
With only a wax stick, and fiery wick
My darling candle light.
This righteous beacon's humbled glow,
The savior of my soul.
Does battle with darkness over my will,
One gaining little control
The damned shall show their faces,

Bits of ash fell from the sky as a dark mist shrouded the world. As mountain peaks crumbled under the dying earth, out of volcanic fire, monstrous slabs of rock destroyed nearby forests as lava, seeping down the volcano like blood from an open wound, swallowed the very foundation of society former villagers had forged over countless years. In one foul swoop, a once mighty empire had now vanished off the face of the planet; but still, the castle stood. But not without undergoing its own Armageddon within its walls.
Through the hollow doors lay decaying piles of corpses; left behind by savage beasts that still ravaged other part

Floppy, wiggly, and sly
Your nearsighted vision
Causes me to cry
Thy razor claws, thy tiny paws
Thy oily fur you secrete
Shifting, crawling, you graze the ground
And wind up at my feet
Ever vigilant, ever brave
Small with a big bite
My interest you peak, my socks you seek
As you war dance in respite
With the boneless form that you adorn
You're not too hard to huggle
But when night comes, I see you run
Next to me to snuggle
Oh ferret, my ferret, I pray that we don't part
For your pleasant features that warm my soul
Have found a place in my heart ^ ^ :D XD =3

It was a dark and long late spring in Fonteinia, particularly in the Ash Forest. Cool winds sighed lazily from the east, tired of little activity happening above the lifeless trees. Not a single bird flew by during the lonely month, which was how the forest liked it; alone, secluded, and free of rotting feathers. The gloomy moonlight penetrated through thick foliage-decorating the forest floor with patterns of light and shadow resembling broken glass shards. Were it not for its daunting lack of light, it might of looked more beautiful. Though this was a typical kind of n

It was like any other winter day, cold and wet. Dark, menacing clouds hung low over the landscape, turning grey to white in their icy downpour. Snow fell like rain, fast, furiously and for a time too long to count. Redwall Abbey's walls were not their normal rosy sandstone, but they were desaturated, cold. Snow gathered over their battlements and in the cracks of the stone. The day was quiet, contrast to the bustle inside the Abbey.
Dibbuns were bouncing off the walls, too excited to be contained. The blizzard had ceased their play outside, so naturally the only place to cause havoc was inside. Hare, mouse, squirrel and molemums ch
