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"!!

Those words, the sharpest razor Butters Stotch had ever felt, sliced right through him. But as he stared up into those horribly perfect blue eyes, he knew he hadn't felt real pain. Not yet.
"W-well " Even his stuttering sounded hopeless now. Molten tears stung at his baby blue eyes, and the little blonde directed his gaze downward. He didn't receive the luxury of a chance to explain. Because Kenny once again broke the silence.
"Butters- y-you're been giving Cartman blowjobs?" Kenny stuttered. Kenny never stuttered. Kenny was the most self-assured person Butters had even known, and here he sounded so hopelessly lost and confused. It was awful, and even though there was nothing Butters could think to say that could save him, he knew he had to try.
"W-well-" He repeated the pitiful utterance once more, biting his lip gently and knowing full well that for once Kenny didn't appreciate how adorable the gesture was. The taller boy was much too pre

"Its my fault you wanted to kill yourself." He clarified, dropping his head a little and allowing some of his beautiful raven hair to fall over his eyes under his signature blue chullo. It was true though, all the pain and bullying gets to you after 2 years of it non-stop. And sure, I regretted doing it, but didnt change the fact that I would rather be dead than have the one I love hate me.
I felt my face blush as I lowered my gaze to my arms, nodding silently.
What was going on here? Craig Tucker doesnt apologize. And he certainly doesnt apologize to me! Craig is never nice to me, he hates me! Right? There had to be a reason he was-

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. Another dream about going to Stan's wouldn't have surprised him really, he dreamed about that a lot lately...but he was almost positive that last night wasn't a dream...

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?"

"If a friend was to die?"

Rebecca's voice quivered as she spoke. "O-of course. You taped it to my dog; how could I not see it?"
"Uh, can we sit down?" Kyle asks nervously, he knew what he had planned would be tricky and he had no idea how to go about it. Rebecca flipped some of her long curly brown hair behind her shoulder and nodded shakily "Wha-why not?"
The brunette girl leads him onto a beautiful path next to a lovely flowerbed with all sorts of flowers in a variety of colors. Rebecca eyed the flowers nervously. "I-Isn't Papa's garden beautiful? He, He works so hard on it "
The brunette picks a flower slowly and brings it to her nose. Kyle frowned, thinking carefully over his words before speaking. "Rebecca, don't you ever look at the town?' He leans in closer, pointing in the distance. "At that flicker of light, over there?

Kenny McCormick was special. No matter what he said.
Kyle stared down at the tomb stone before him, tears welling up in his eyes as he knelt down and placed a new rose upon the grave. "You were always special to me." He whispered, a tear falling from his jade-green eyes onto the newly placed rose.
The rose was white, just like Kenny asked.
He never told anyone else that, but it was Kenny's dying wish to have white roses placed on his grave if he were to die for real some day.
That day, Kyle decided upon the very unlikely event that Kenny died for real, he would make it his life to make sure that Kenny got at least one white rose on his grave.
