Does he notice?"I sense there's something in the wind,Does he notice?6 years ago in Teen More Like This
That feels like tragadies at hand,
And though I'd like to stand by him,
Can't shake this feeling that I have,
The worst is just around the bend,
And does he notice,
My feelings for him?
And will he see,
How much he means to me?
I think it's not to be.
What will become of my dear friend?
Where will his actions lead us then?
Although I'd like to join the crowd,
In their enthusiastic cloud,
Try as I may it doesn't last,
And will we ever end up together?"
I found my self singing these lyrics while laying in my bed during the early morning hours. Thinking of the infamous...well lets leave him unnamed. I reached my arm above my head and stared at it, moving each digit individually letting the light hit my face in several different ways. A quick movement in the shadows. I sit up alarmed, but alas, it is all in my imagination. Or it may be paranoia...My sanity has slowly been fading away, along with my imagination and creativity. I thought of my nightmar
Broken Down"Scheisse", a certain German cursed when his 'check engine' light started blinking at him. Glancing around, he found that it was just his luck that he happened to be in the middle of nowhere. Sighing, Ludwig flicked on his blinker, pulling over onto the arm of the road. It also just happened to be his luck that today had to be possibly the hottest day in the history of his country.Broken Down5 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Stepping out of the vehicle, he heard a muffled groan from the back seat but ignored it. The car was more to his concern than his brother's waking. He remembered when the albino had crawled into the backseat and had refused to drive, saying that he was 'Too awesome for driving' or something along those lines, and that Ludwig, as the younger brother, would have to chauffeur him. Ludwig probably wouldn't have trusted Gilbert to drive anyway if he had wanted to.
Running a hand over his barely slicked back hair, Ludwig reached under the hood and released it, grabbing the hood prop and using it for what it
all work and no play"Bruder! Bruder!" called an adolescent Ludwig, as the boy stormed his way down the stretching hallways of his brother's home. He passed all of those delicate paintings and ornaments without a second thought as to where they had come from, or how his brother came into their possession. As far as the younger nation knew, his brother wasn't one for painting or sculpting all the time.all work and no play5 years ago in Humor More Like This
"Bruder? Are you in here?" his tiny voice chirped, as the boy stood up on the bones of his toes to push open a large heavy door, leading to his brother's bedroom presumably. A frown tugged at the young boy's lips when that familiar albino man wasn't coming into view as he scanned over the empty bed sheets, his empty work desk, and he even peeked into his brother's bathroom, just in case he could be hiding in there, trying to play a prank on poor Ludwig. His brother's room was large, with a ceiling reaching high into the air that always made Ludwig dizzy if he tried to stare straight up at it when he was walki

The summer light almost blinded 17 year-old Ivy-Jade McKie when she got up on Saturday morning. Summer vacation had started and she was more than happy to be away from school.
After throwing on a pair of baggy slacks and a T-shirt, Ivy said a goodbye to her sister Jewel-Ann before heading out.
Once she left the house, where she headed was the city park, a habit she had practiced since the beginning of spring. She would go to think and even talk with her boyfriend Hiei. They had been together for about a year.
Ivy took a seat on the bench and looked towards the sky. The clouds floated freely through the breeze. A smile tugged at her lips as she yawned, lying back on the bench but a sudden bark broke her reverie.
"Huh? Quiin? What are you doing here?"
Said dog barked happily and jumped into his mistress' lap, cuddling close to her stomach. Ivy smiled and ran her hand through his fur.

Replacement MummyIt was a beautiful day at the local college. Ms. Johnson, the local history teacher, was busy giving another one of her usual lectures. During the course of it, she seemed to be looking at one of her students, Christina, a bit more than usual. Like she had some interest. As Christina brushed a back a lock of her short blond hair from her eyes, she pondered what the teacher could be looking at her for. For now, she just brushed it off as nothing. Eventually, class ended and the students began to file out, but Ms. Johnson approached Christina.Replacement Mummy5 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

"Umm.....sure, Ms. Johnson...."
Inside, Christina began to worry - she was worried about that recent test and was terrified that this is about that result. In the office, Ms. Johnson simply sat at her chair. Near her was a roll of medical bandages and a large sarcophagus. She looked at Christina with a sly smile.

Izuru had wanted this to happen for so long, probably since his academy days if he had to think of the length. His adoration towards the older man had started the day he and his classmates were sent to the world of the living for a lesson on Konso. Out of the blue, numerous huge hollows appeared, seeking to make the four students their next meal. As Izuru ran away to hide, he turned around for a split second, only to see a hollow catch Hisagi off guard and rake it's claws down the side of his face, marring that beautiful visage.
Since that day, Izuru had always blamed himsel

The last few tests and tweaks had made for some promising results and it was hoped this would make it last longer with minimal user drain. With any luck, it would make controlling wild animal specimens easier.Wrapping Problems3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Of course, Sapphire didn't dare mentioned she'd be using her own take on the spell on herself and her boyfriend for their own pleasure.
With the last of the adjustments made, Sapphire quietly cast the spell. As she spoke, red wrappings materialized before her and began to wrap around her body, soon cocooning her. This time around, she found herself more fully cocooned, coated from head to toe with only her eyes and some small openings for her nose left open. It cost a little more magic power than she thought it would, but it was within acceptable amounts.
Pleased with this new change, Sapphire wriggled and squirmed in her new bindings, finding them to be as secure as they had be

Shuhei quietly pushed his way through the sliding door that led into the squad nine living quarters. He thought it odd not to hear Izuru's hurried footsteps approach to greet his longtime friend. Since the abrupt leave, or more appropriately, betrayal, of squad three's Captain Ichimaru, Izuru had spent most of his free time with Shuhei. If the squad three lieutenant wasn't doing paperwork, he was drinking heavily, attempting to drown the memories of the captain he had known so fondly. Shuhei quickly found it a daily mission of keeping his depressed friend sober.
Hisagi snapped to attention when he heard glass shatter in the direction of the kitchen. He dropped the grocery bag and dashed into the kitchen.
"Izuru, are you alri-!"
Hisagi stopped, catching sight of a sake bottle now in pieces on the floor. His gaze traveled up, where numerous empty bottles of alcohol were tipped over. Izuru sat hunched over the table, anot

The first thing was a drive down to the beach. Clad in a brightly-colored bikini, Rayne jumped out of the car; she and Yusuke hurried onto the sand, ready to embrace the warm weather.
Rayne carried a beach ball in her hands and threw it to her lover, yelling out a "Catch that!" Yusuke returned the ball with such intensity, it almost hit Rayne in the face. She glared at him as the ball was buried a foot or two in the ground.
"Hey! What'd you do that for?! Play fair!"
He snickered. "Course I'm playing fair. It's called 'tricking your opponent'; you wouldn't understand~"
The white-haired half-demon pouted and crossed her arms. She hated it when he teased her like this. "Meanie!"
A series of hits ensued and the beach volleyball competition began. Rayne was determined to win the game after the trick Yusuke had pulled. She threw a series of fast balls, in which Yusuke returned happily. By noon, the score was tie

He didn't want to give up the view just yet, but he also didn't want to get in a fight while perched on a tree branch. He pushed his shaggy copper hair out of his eyes and put his glasses back on.

Hiei rolled his eyes and continued setting up the party streamers. His friends had planned to come and visit once the sun set, so everyone could celebrate his daughter's birthday...though he wasn't all that thrilled. He just wanted some peace and quiet.
Meanwhile, the child sat in her playpen with her dolls. She giggled at seeing her mother blowing up a blue balloon, her pale face growing red from trying so hard. Rein's eyes grew wide as she watched her father grab the balloon from her mother.

Kurama had to mentally stay his physical urge to whip around to see who had spoken. That was the first flag of a guilty conscious. Instead he took his time, so when he turned to face his mother he looked calm and composed, just as Shuichi always did.
"It's something new," he replied, smiling warmly at her. He didn't like to lie to her generally, but when that lie could protect her life he had no choice. It was better that way. Even if he had cut all ties with Youko, there was still danger that would find him. The less she knew the better.
