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"!!

Roland and Rosedew by Rebecca S. RussellRoland and Rosedew By Rebecca RussellRoland and Rosedew by Rebecca S. Russell3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
It was a truly lovely day as Prince Roland, perched regally atop his magnificent steed, ambled along an old trail through the Forgotten Forest. Though he was alone, and hopelessly lost, the Prince's countenance still carried the haughty mark of his royal station: the chin firmly squared and angled so the tip of his impressively shaped nose always pointed precisely between his horse's ear tips; finely shaped lips pursed ever so slightly so as to hide any hint of real emotion; and velvet brown eyes carefully narrowed as they peered down the sides of the afore ascribed nose. A particular source of vanity, his long flaxen hair flowed in elegant waves to a precise length just below his shoulder blades, the multitude of blond and light brown tones shimmering each time the strands stirred.
As he'd been taught from birth, the Prince was very careful to always retain his regal bearing. After all, one never knew when a peasant might suddenly app

"What are you doing, Sammy?" His voice was a mumble; sleep-drugged and as heavy as the warm Florida air.
It took Sam back to the days of their childhood when Dean could pretend that everything was all right. He would read him children's books, on places as far away as Iceland or as close to home as Kansas, and then they would sneak into the backyard of whatever ramshackle hotel their father had shipped them to and roll through the grass, swing from low tree branches, and dream that they were far away. Wherever they wanted to be. Wherever they didn't have to worry about hiding.
Dean lifted himself onto his elbows. He looked as at home lying shirtless in a hammock as he did sprawled across one of Bobby's spare beds, and Sam's liquid fern-green eyes traced down

When I reached the front of the school where the buses were pulling up, I noticed a familiar orange hood waiting in front of me and Craig's stop.
"Hey Tweeky!" He greeted me warmly, wrapping me in a friendly hug before pulling away and holding his hands on my shoulders. "Did'ja talk to Craig any more today?" He sang, jumping up and down girlishly and flashing me his huge...'Kenny grin'.
"U-Uh, No?" I replied, looking over my shoulder to make sure Craig wasn't listening to us talk about him.
"Why not?" Kenny pouted, folding his arms over his chest in disapproval. "Dont you guys have, like, every class together?"
"Y-Yeah?" I replied, still not understanding. Kenny shook his head and rolled his eyes.

JealousyThe sun was starting to rise in Lake Town, and we were walking towards the place where we had been told that we would be able to set off towards Erebor. We would finally be able to start the very last part of the journey: our trip to Erebor and the Lonely Mountain. What would happen after this only Eru, and perhaps Mandos, knew. This, however, was the least of my worries right now. Rather, the only thing that occupied my mind was the completely unmistakable thing that was happening. Unmistakable, and painfully so.Jealousy2 years ago in Romance More Like This

He was sure he did right after the fight with his parents, he went over Stan's like he always did but if that was the case, why was he at home?
Kyle lifted the covers from over him and discovered that he was in his own room. He blinked again and rubbed his eyes, thinking maybe he was just dreaming about last night.

Those inquisitive eyes were staring at him again. For all of Cas' powers, it seemed as if his so-called guardian angel could never tell exactly what was on his mind. Dean was always happy to take solace in that fact. That at least he could lord something...anything... over the annoying bastard. Unfortunately it also meant that he was a constant point of fascination to Cas. And those bright blue eyes were filled with questioning. An intense longing for answers Dean wasn't sure he could properly give.
Cas had been so child-like in his belief, and, in his own anger and frustration Dean had ripped the veil from his eyes and left him with nothing to cling to. Except for Dean himself. For all they'd been through, he couldn't help but look at the angel with a mixture of pity and loathing. He hadn't asked for any of this. He hadn't asked to be saved. But now they were in this together and there was no going back.
"Cas," Dean sighed. "What's the matter now?"

The apocalypse, strange how such a word could instill such fear in people then there was Lucifer, the devil, Satan all three words could send people running for the nearest church or grabbing the nearest bible…strange. You couldn’t say that these things didn’t scare you but it wasn’t exactly like you would go running for the hills either after all you had encountered things just as bad such as demons, shape shifters, werewolves, vampires, monsters of all kinds so in your opinion as long as you viewed the devil as just another monster it was simple but that was before that night. The hunt you were on was taking longer then expected, which made you uneasy to begin with but something else was poking at the back of your head or rather in your head. Sometimes being a psychic was a real pain in the ass but complaining was pointless considering you had asked for it in the first place. That’s right you remember the day it happened
