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

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"!!

ExplainationSleepover --- Part 2Explaination6 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Kyle Broflovski blinked, trying to clear up his vision. How long had he been asleep? All he remembered was going over to Stan's last night and...didn't he spend the night there? 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...
Interrupting Kyle's train of thought, his cell phone buzzed next to him on his bed stand. Kyle reached over and picked it up...2 messages. Both from Stan?

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.
"That ass." Kenny muttered, standing on his toes and looking behind me. "Oh! Speak of the devil."

Pip could feel the Devil's son heated breath brush his cheek. It was an intense second, a short, intense second until their lips were connected, smashing into each other. Not even another second passed until tongues were battling each other, fighting for domince. The coldness of the small, redneck, mountain town wasn't affecting either of the boys in the heat of their love.
"Damien! Is that you?" Damien's father, Satan, called from inside the house, hearing strange noises from the porch.
"S-Shit..." He said wiping his mouth and pulling away from Pip. The Devil opened the front door, wearing a pink apron that said, "Kiss the Cook"

"If a friend was to die?"
Stan asked, staring up at the blank ceiling tiles as he had been for the past half an hour. He closed his eyes and began to think to himself. What would he do if a close friend suddenly disappeared from his life? The first person to come to mind, obviously, was Kyle.

Damien understands respect, he understands why people need it and why people loathe those who don't have or give the polite manner. He understands that even his father wants respect, that even his father has a kind and weak, gentle spot for his boyfriend.
Of course, Damien can't understand though, the respect he has for the small, blonde British child that clings onto him whenever he returns - for that few months - leaving Pip again and again. He doesn't understand why the blonde always holds onto his hand refusing to let go even if Damien demands he gets off. He doesn't, he never does.
He never leaves Damien.
The son of Satan isn't sure if he should be happy; or annoyed that the child clings to him. But, he can't help but feel that whenever Pip brushes his fingers to his own, that the Sun is shining on him; and for once he forgets his father's place in Hell - and his own - and stays on Earth, holding his captured Angel for the longest amount of time.

My head snapped up in shock as I noticed the raven-haired boy squatted at my side, peering over my shoulder curiously. I starred at him for a moment before my mind caught up with what he was looking at, and WHO was looking at it. "GAH!"
He just read my poem! Oh GOD! He must know its about him! He is going to kill me for SURE now!
I slammed my hand over the page to cover the words written on it and squeezed my eyes shut, avoiding his eyes."I-I'm sorry!"

"Yes? What is it?" He giggled. He smiled at the tall blonde. He was so stunning sometimes. How he slicked his hair back every morning, and how it shone in the sun was simply beautiful. Italy was snapped out of his thought bubble when the German one spoke.

So...what the hell?
Stan Marsh couldn't fall asleep...his mind was focused on the mane of red hair before him, fast asleep.
Staring at the boy's unconscious face, Stan decided there was no point in looking away again. He had been staring at his best friend for, easily, an hour or so now. They had had sleepovers in the past -hell-they were super best friends after all, but now was different...
Stan had no idea.
He just knew it was, and for some reason, he couldnt look away. Bringing his hand to the Jewish boy's head, Stan brushed his fingers slowly through his curly hair. Why was he doing this?
He still had no idea.
It was just sort of an urge, an urge he had succumb to about an hour ago and since then couldnt stop doing...it just felt good.
Repeating the motion, Stan allowed his mind to wander. He needed to know why he kept feeling this way around Kyle. Why everytime Kyle came over, all he w

"Son, there's...something i need to tell you..." he sounded hesitan, which was odd since he'd always beed so confident after he broke up with Sadan and Chris.
"Yes Father?" Damien asked in his tenor voice.

"And a sister. Well, 2 sisters, she has split personality." Satan replied, getting up. "And she'll be here to meet you in a few minutes. Your brother, Hitako, is a hardcore catholic and refuses to come within 100 miles of you, so forget about him comeing to visit." he said,
Love Scars - Chapter 14It must've been a good 5 minutes before Craig finally broke apart the boy's gazes. It was a strange feeling to have not been able to pull his eyes apart from Tweek's. He didnt really try to fight it, though, either, so he didnt really feel the need to complain. Something about holding Tweek this way, Tweeks hands in his own, made Craig question why he ever hated the twitchy blond in the first place. If he was being entirely honest, he didnt even remember when he started to dislike him...maybe setting aside the incident in Shop Class where they fought...maybe that had been where it all started.Love Scars - Chapter 145 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

Kyle waited impatiently in Stan's doorway as his best friend got himself ready. Said Jewish boy heard his mom honking outside, which only made him even more eager to get going. His mom could be so god-damned annoying sometimes.
"Just my ass?" Stan smirked back, appearing at the bottom of the staircase. The raven was carrying a suitcase in one hand, a backpack slung over his shoulder, and a pair of black and white converse.
"Shut up smart ass." Kyle joked back, rolling his eyes and holding out a hand to help with his friends bags. "I'll take these to mom's car, get your shoes on already. I cant believe you just woke up!"
"Yeah, yeah." Stan waved, as if he was shoeing Kyle away. He handed his bags over to his friend, knowing that insisting he do it would only result in Kyle insisting right back that he do it. "Thanks dude."
Kyle always won their arguments, so Stan just figured he would give up before they even started.

And so he had. It was the first time Kiku had laid eyes on the brunette wearing anything oriental. Quite different compared to the white, rather feminine-looking kimono that Kiku currently wore, which was decorated with lilac flowers, Heracles wore dark blue and deep purple, that looked utterly amazing on him (Kiku thought).
"Well? What do you think?"
Kiku shook his head of his thoughts and brought his gaze to meet that of the Grecian's. "It looks really good on you," he began, "You really suit it."

I keep deep inside
These feelings I cant show
I must save and hide
I don't think he feels
The same way that I do
When i was confused
I usually came to you.
When we are together
I gather my might
When he is around
It just feels oh so right
I dream about what
I could possibly do
Oh, the scenarios
My mind can pursue.
I yearn just to feel
His kind gentle touch
And when he must leave,
I miss it so much
I want to feel his
Soft lips on top mine
And feeling our bodies
For now I'll just love him
From here, From afar
And one day I'll express this
How special you are
Until then, that day
I'll contain this strong rush
When I'm around you
That thing called a Crush.
