Change of hearts 1
"I can't believe my dear Howard is gone!"cried the old widow out as peramedics removed the dead body of her murdered husband. "Anyone who pops to mind that hated your husband so much that he wanted him dead?"I asked not interested in the grief of the wheeping widow.
"What he means is that we're sorry for your loss ma'am."John picked in, trying to smooth-talk my emotionless action. "But we want to catch the killer of your husband as quickly as possible and therefor we need to question any person of interest. Is there someone in preticuliar where Mr. Jamesson spended a lot of time with?". "Well..."she sniffed. "There is one person who knew my husband better then I did and that's our granddaughter. She lives here at the mansion ever since she was 15 because her parents died in a car accident. Even though she has the rebelious character of her late mother instead of the character of my late son, she and my husband sticked together like g
DW: Thunderstorm It was a gloomy morning. The dark belly of the sky was heavy with moisture. It spewed out rain in bitter waves, soaking everything in its foul temper. Water poured off of the rooftops and crashed into deep puddles below. Thin yellow grass bent underneath the opposing storm, trembling slightly in the downpour. The sidewalk was caked in fog, unable to escape the seeping coldness of the rain. Even the trees stooped to avoid enraged cracks of lightning that streaked across the sky, and easily snapped and scorched whatever stood against it. The streetlights remained an eerie warmth in the otherwise despairing scene. A few soaked moths clung hopelessly to the lamps, and would occasionally give up and drop into the flood below.DW: Thunderstorm2 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
A group of children in brightly colored raincoats congregated around a gray bus stop sign. They chattered and laughed and howled like chimps. They were completely oblivious to the fierce downpour, save f

so let out your fears you've got kept inside
there's more to you then you let yourself find
im opening this world- this reality- yourself

Okay, so first of all, a zombie is a reanimated corpse that lurches around looking for human flesh. Different breeds may be reasoned with, or even "cured" back to the original personality. However, the most typical zombies:
-Are incoherent. They will not be reasoned with or threatened.
-They don't sleep.
-They seem to like brains, but most will settle for a nice hunk of your flesh.
-The come in different speeds, from crawling to shambling to running. Most are shambling along at a slow slow walk.
-They do not drown or asphyxiate.
-Some will burn easily while others will not burn at all.
-Most zombies will "die" from severe damage to the head.
-It is said they are attracted by sound, but this varies.
-VERY IMPORTANT: The most dangerous thing about zombies is that if they bite you and you die before your brain is destroyed, you will come back to life as ANOTHER ZOMBIE. That's how they spread their numbers

It's not like I'm not nervous Allan thought to himself. Even a slight hiccup in the radio signals was common once in a while. Eugene fiddled with the dials of his make-shift receiver, trying to isolate the signal that had just disrupted their usual day.
Allan looked up to the reddening summer evening sky through the glass doors at the entrance to store. The way the wispy clouds delicately danced on the wind and drifted across the sky seemed to move far too slow, far too perfect. It was as if the last month he had spent there had been nothing but a dream. Good memories. Good times. Still alive after all his previous running and hiding. He looked back to Aurora and Twitch who chatted on guard in front of the store, unbeknownst to them that the most promising signal they had received yet, had j

It had survived things that no mug should have had to endure.
It had been dropped off cliffs, plunged into radioactive water, used to hold questionable substances and once travelled several hundred kilometres after Pilot tied a helium balloon to it. It had been thrown at Snippy countless times. It had suffered the indignity of being sat on by Engie after the Captain left it lying on a chair.
It had never been washed in its life.
But in the end, all it took was one little nudge, and the mug the great, glorious mug was reduced to a few shards of broken ceramic and a spatter of sad-looking tea.
It happened like this:

Jersey To Nebraska Pt 1Jersey To Nebraska Pt 13 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
It was quiet, and despite how cliché it was, Agent New Jersey found herself thinking that it was too quiet. While it wasn't completely silent for her, with the sound of water slapping against the cliff side she was standing on and the light breeze that rustled the trees of High Ground, she couldn't make out any human, or even alien, activity. This was unexpected, as she was sent to destroy the base along with the seven troops that were said to have been in it. So far, she hadn't seen even a speck of life in the area, and she found this unsettling.
"Why haven't you gone in yet? Are you scared?" a light male voice chimed in, breaking Jersey's concentration on the horizon of the base in the distance.
"No, I'm not scared! It's because I don't know who's in there," Jersey answered, her temper flaring for a moment, knowing Mu had known that. It was beyond her why he even bothered asking when he knew the answers. Probably to make sure. If there was one thing Mu liked to do it was to make

Aurora could feel everyone's eyes fall upon her. She tried to keep her gaze at the small campfire, maybe even the food ration on her lap, doing anything to avoid their stare. She tried to keep her face clear of emotion, stone-walled as it had been these past couple months. She did everything she could to keep herself from looking weak, but her head fell lower and into her shoulders, and she hunched a bit farther over and into herself. Eugene and Twitch fell silent as they hung their heads a bit in remembrance.
They knew what had happened at their home.
An unfamiliar voice spoke up from across the campfire in the shadows.
"I heard that freak was a monster," it said.
Ethan stood up abruptly and turned, "That man saved my sister's life. I won't have any one of you saying anything bad about him!" After glancing down at the ashamed girl before them, he cast his gaze at the tall man in the shadows. He knew him.
Monday Morning RapIt's a bright new dayMonday Morning Rap4 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
Shut up it's Monday
No one likes it
So just go away
Wake up sleepy
Out of bed
Bog off you
I feel dead
Bed bugs bit me
Now I'm cursed
Hangover hits me
Feeling the worst
I crawl out of bed
Dress up, cap on my head
Early bird gets the worm
I ain't concerned
Early to bed now
Early to rise
I got better things to do
Than follow your lies
Again and again
Till God knows when
I just want to sleep
To dream deep
Shirt inside out
On the way to the bus
Change in my pocket
I don't make a fuss
Standing at the stop
Got nothing to do
Leaning on the post
Having a snooze
The driver grins
As he hoots the horn
I scowl back
Showing my scorn
We're slowing down
School in sight
All my teachers
Here of course
No frees for me
I feel like the horse
Lead me to water
Not gonna drink it
Swallow your shit
I think I'll miss it
Again and again
Till God knows when
I just want to stop
I feel the rain drops
Coming down on me

Oh Captain, my Captain! I say it to mock,
You're lucky as hell but to me you're a c***.
Please spare me the missions, I've no head for heights,
Balloons and big lists lead me only to blights.
Evading the probes of an alien race,
Then having to witness your > : ( angry face...
But what choice have I? I'm involved in these fights,
With Cancerous space-monsters full of red sprites,
And Lemonade weirdos and God knows what next,
Just how can you stay so serene and unvexed?
What price should I pay for your simple delights,
Be eaten by whales after soiling my whites?
I know you won't listen, but you'll come unstuck,
And one of these days you'll run right out of luck,
Your empire will fall, and your ego besides,
It's karma for sure, like the turn of the tides,
And then I will lol, sitting in my own muck,
Coz after all this I just won't give a f***.

Now there's a nice welcome. He thought, looking at the food. Fiskegrateng. There was melted butter and potatoes beside it as well. South grabbed a plate and filed it as good as he could. It had been a long trip to HQ, and he was hungry.
Having stuffed his plate with food, he found himself a nice, empty table and sat down, beginning to eat.
If it keeps going this way in foods, this should be a nice stay.
