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"!!

UnattainableIllusions+Prologue"Am I really gonna do this..?" A solemn tone came from a young girl as she looked over the large transmutation circle that was etched in the concrete floor and the remains that were laid in the middle, a few silent tears formed in her eyes as they ran down her cheeks. She opened her eyes slightly as she fell back on her knees and her hands found their way to the floor near the circle, clenching her hands to the point where her knuckles had turned white. The girl was only 16, but after witnessing Edward Elric's death at the hands of the homunculus named Envy the once proud girl had been completely broken; her heart which had been broken in the past this time felt as though it had completely shattered. She didn't bother trying to mend it this time, the heart was like a mirror..Once broken it could never be mended, the remnants were left scattered on the cold, dingy floor.UnattainableIllusions+Prologue9 years ago in General Fiction More Like This

The boy slightly opened one eye to be face to face with what appeared to be another homunculus. This one was pale and long stringy green hair; he wore a tight black shirt that stopped at his chest with a matching black skort, the oroborus symbol was tattooed just below the skort on his right leg.Unattainable Illusions +Ch. 1+9 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
"You look like someone I used to know..." Envy said with a small smirk. He pushed his thumb under the boy's chin and lifted it up so he could get a good look at his face. "A man I once killed perhaps...? And to think I could never see you as pathetic as I once did when I blew your stomach to pieces!" He said, cackling. "No...But you're not the same boy...Are you? Though that face makes my stomach squirm...The thought of helping you makes my blood curl." He snorted. Envy then reached in his pockets as he drew out a few small, blood red stones.
The boy looked at them sickly, not saying a word. "Eat

Pride cocked his head as he remained inside the room. The few soldiers were standing outside the building like a few children daring each other to run and touch the porch. They jumped as they saw a figure climb from the roof and back in the window of the house as the men carefully walked inside. They didn't quite get a good glimpse of her face as they saw a shadowed figure at the bottom of the stairs.Unattainable Illusions +Ch 6+9 years ago in General Fiction More Like This

Arun stared at the small piece of paper in his hands that he had found taped to the door of Skye's bedroom. Barely knowing anything about the English written language, Arun struggled with the words for a few minutes.
"Going... on a...." Arun paused at the next word, unsure of how to pronounce it, "Be.. back... later."
The burgundy-haired boy brought the note close to his face and focused directly on the word that he had skipped.
"Dah-tee?" Arun guessed. He repeated the word a few times out loud before he realized what it was.
"Date!!" He exclaimed.
He paused for a moment, and the happiness of accomplishing his goal of reading the note quickly faded into dread.
"Wait, that means you're gone for the day??" Arun gasped and the note slipped from his hands.
He dashed back into the television room where he and the other mermen slept. The small boy snatched up another piece of paper that was on the bed.

Title: Good Enough
Pairings: Sebastian/Ciel Light Yaoi
Rating: T / Pg-13
Summary: There are times in my life I wish I was good enough. If I could be good enough then perhaps Ciel would look at me the same way I look at him. Although as I smile he sees happiness, but behind it is everything he will never understand.
Timeline: Actual universe. Also known as 21st century.
Warnings: This is NOT SHOTA! Although it has mentions of love in it. There will be some sebaciel. ALSO IF YOU DON'T LIKE DO NOT READ! You're immature if you comment. I don't want to see any 'omg ewww.' I will laugh at you! I think the most damaging thing in this story is the cursing.

The chapter below has come into being spontaneously, for fun, without the bigger concept of writing any more chapters. It wasn’t supposed to have any form of continuity, and the thread of Marcin & Nivan - the two heroes in this story - was meant as a note of spice in their created lives. Both characters were created for the purpose of a role playing game, both of them had partners in their lives as well as separate histories. And so it was meant to stay... in the beginning that is.

To me you are perfect in every way. I care about you more than words could ever say.
I can't imagine my life without you. And I hope I never have to. When you hold me close
I never want to let go. I love you more than you could ever know. The words you say
mean so much. I feel weak at the knees with every touch and after every kiss. You
seem to leave me completly breathless. When ever I'm with you there's a smile on
my face. And everything else just seems to fall into place. I could stare into your
eyes for hours. when I see you smile I just want to melt. It's like something I've
never felt. You've made me realize how wonderful life can be. Just by caring
about me. Words could never explain how I feel. Nothing has ever felt this real.
Everyday less tears fall from my eyes. Because this is something I can longer
deny. I never thought anyone could make me feel this way. I love you more
every single day.

Disappointment, annoyance, frustration and despair
This is what I am to you, and simply, beyond repair
I know I don't have an ounce of common sense
But that's no right for me not to take offense
You cut me down to nothing and laugh at it
You take pleasure in the insecurities I admit
I apologize and try to explain my insanity
But you eat it up in your superiority, vanity
I wish I could be all you want and think me to be
So I wouldn't disappoint your expectations of me
I hate that I can't be quick witted and good in math
That I can't measure, count, or reason before you laugh
You ignore me when you've heard enough of my thoughts
Abandoned like an unwanted fruit thrown away before it rots
I try so hard to be what you expect of me to automatically become
As if by some miracle that can sew the seams my issues have undone
My imperfections have become the epitome of your disregard for my emotions
