He is a misunderstood soul. No, he is not misunderstood. There is nothing to understand about him. He can't even understand his own self. In other words, he's a soul like no other. The boy was not born this way, but evolved. How? If only he knew. If only they knew.
A dark haired boy approached a kitchen table filled with four other children like him. Foster children. The boy in black was forced in this hell pit. If only he could live alone, fully alone. He didn't need foster 'parents'. In fact, they didn't treat him like their child or a child to take care of and look after. They believe they were cursed. Then again, people will do anything for money; they kept the boy.
"What are you doing? You know we don't have room for you on this bloody table. You sit on the floor." The oldest child living here commanded. His hair thick like honey, color of it too, and a large build; he was not fat, but largely built. The boy with the black hair looked at him and frowned. He was sick of it.

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!!

PROPERTY OFDeidara couldnt believe his misfortune. This shouldnt be happening to him, dammit! He was an artist, and therefore creative; not to mention he knew his partner better than anyone else on the entire planetPROPERTY OF8 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
So why couldnt he think of a good idea for Sasoris birthday?
He groaned and flopped down onto the bed; this was frustrating as hell! It should not be this hard to shop for a lover; but than again, this was Sasori.
For the hundredth time, Deidara ran through the list of things hed given him in the past. Mostly it was just material for his puppets; and of course, last year hed bought a school girl uniform and worn it. He smiled. Sasori had really liked that, but if he did something like that again, it would all but cement the idea that he was Akasunas sex slave.
The sculptor rose to his feet and stretched his arms above his head. Obviously he wasnt going to come up with any ideas in here, so he decided to take a walk.

But what do you use to fix a broken person?
Kisame had been asking the question for over a week now. He still wasnt sure exactly what had happened, but the night he and Itachi had been on the couch, and the Uchiha had started crying, he knew that something very fragile had snapped inside the weasel. The problem was, Kisame had no idea what that something had been, let alone how he was to go about fixing it.
Itachi had been off, ever since that night. His reactions were delayed, his eyes were always looking off into the distance, and he had stopped coming over to the sharks house as frequently as he used to.
Kisame sighed and walked into the living room. Maybe he could drown out his thoughts with a little TV.
Itachi was stretched out on his bed, eyes glued to the ceiling. His father was still at work, his brother was at a friends

Deidara slowly awoke, feeling rather stiff and disoriented. He slowly sat up, noticing his joints were moving strangely. The sculptor lifted a hand to his head, caressing it gently to alleviate some of the pain he felt in it. "Ugh.... Where am I, un?" Was he dead? His whole body felt numb and stiff, even when he moved.
As he looked around his crystal blue orbs fell upon Sasori. Had everything that had happened earlier between them been a dream before he died? The redhead sobbing in his arms? The kiss... Everything? It must have been. After all, Sasori had died a while before he self destructed. That meant... This must be the afterlife. He gave a soft whimper in fear. Despite the fact he had been ready to die he was still afraid. No one really knew what happe

Naruto woke up, realized he was in a warm blanket, and almost dozed off again. Well, he would have, if Sasuke hadn't walked into the room, holding two bowls of ramen.
Are you alright, dobe? he asked, concernedly, putting the bowls on the coffee table.
Naruto nodded, but started coughing even harder. Sasuke sat down next to him, and put an arm around his friend, trying to stop him.
The blonde smiled weakly up at Sasuke and pointed at the ramen bowls.
One's mine, Naruto.
Naruto reached for his food, but his hands were shaking, and the chopsticks fell onto the table.
Sasuke sighed, picked up the chopsticks, and began feeding his friend.
Gradually Naruto began to regain his color, and Sasuke decided to ask how he had gone from Kiba's to his house.
How'd you get to my house, anyways? I thought you had been invited to Kib

Your parents must be so proud, Rose.

No. Rose was decidedly not excited. The giddy anticipation she had once experienced had recently been invaded by an intermingling of doubts and insomnia, making excitement a far distant feeling. Every time she had slowed her thoughts enough to perhaps sleep, another worry would arrive to distract her. This was the day she should be looking forward to more than any other, but all she could feel was uncertainty. Her family, excluding Al, all seemed beyond jubilant about it. As each day passed, one more enthusiastic thought would somehow be turned into a panic inducing horror. The night before was the very worst she had experienced.
Around midnight Rose had fussed over whether she should wear her robes or not. She got out of bed to look them over, and decided that shed not be out of place wearing them once on the train. At two thirty-five she decid

Deidara and Sasori had been going to the same school for years, but the red head doubted the blonde even knew about his existence. Theyd talked a little in class, played on the same team in P.E., all the usual stuff.

Kids often teased him about it, even going as far as beating the poor kid up before or after school, calling him a freak.

As Kisame let the hot water wash over his sore limbs, he continued to think about Itachi. He wasnt sure what his feelings really were for the weasel. It wasnt just a partnership, or love, or something as simple as that. He relied on the Uchiha in a fight, expected him to react negatively when called a female, trusted him to remain calm and collected at all times, needed him to-
That was it. Put simply, Kisame needed Itachi, as much a plant needed sunlight or a person needed oxygen.

Its brief, un!
This argument took place between a Mr. Jebidiah Iwa and Mr. Isaiah Akasuna. The men had started arguing down by the river that flowed through their part of the Appalachian Mountains, arguing over the property line between their land. Iwa said that more than half the river was on his familys side, and Akasuna argued the same thing. Iwa eventually brought up the clay his family liked to wrap around their explosives that was found in the riverbed, which led to an art argument.
