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"!!

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
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
It had started after which we had arrived late at night to the house of the governor of Lake Town, where a human had attempted to flirt with me. I had made no particular deal of this and politely turned her down, after all I was used to such things in the Shire, flirting wasn’t something which bothered me particularly.

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?"

“Bruce! Look at me!” You cupped his partially green face with your hands.
“It will be alright. You just need to calm down.” He was still breathing heavily and slowly getting greener.
“You know what? Fuck that. That’s probably what you’ve heard before many times, Right? Calm down?” You scoffed at your own words. You caressed his rough face with your hands and brought them down to rest on his tense shoulders.
“Stay strong, Bruce.” You kissed his forehead. The angry expression slowly disappeared and he regain his normal skin tone. You smiled at the outcome and he pulled you in a warm embrace.
“Thank you.” He whispered in your ear. He let go of you and you two once again looked into each others eyes.

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

Sam huffed in and out just as angrily, running his hands through his hair. "Leave me alone!"
"No!" Dean stopped him from going into one of the bedrooms, grabbing his arm. "Not until you tell me what the hell is up with you!"
Sam shook it off, and continued on his quest to get away from him. When he reached the bedroom but didn't go in, instead leaning his head against the wall and pounding a fist against it did Dean stop.
His brother was trembling.

His younger brother's trembling increased and a sob was stifled. "I...I can't...I..."

He began hunting normally, like before. Dean even smiled and told him that he was glad his baby brother was better. Sam just glared, telling his older brother that he wasn’t a baby. Dean just laughed and kept driving.
Sam didn’t have a problem until about a week later, when Dean was on a hunt out of town. He gave Sam another case, which the younger hunter quickly and briefly took care of. It was very unlikely that they ever split up, but when it happened, they knew if they needed each other, to call no matter the time or circumstance.

No response, no shift in posture to indicate he hears Sam. He flicks his ballpoint pen expertly and hits his older brother in the left ear, provoking an exasperated "Ow" out of Dean Winchester.
"C'mon, let's get some lunch." Sam has already pushed to his feet, rising to his impressive 6'4" height, and he grabs his cell phone and black leather wallet off the table by Dean's hand, double checking the time displayed on Dean's sturdy wristwatch. "I know a good place in town."
"There's a diner a block away." Dean's voice is pointed, surly after hours of research with very little fruit.
"I'll cover it."
Dean's eyebrows rise and he studies Sam for a long moment. "It's rabbits-only," he says matter-of-factly, his tone dripping distaste.
