She ran, her heart pumping and the crying babe in her arms growing heavier. The pain in her lower abdomen was like hot fire escaping all over her body. Her legs fought her desire to keep moving and she hugged her son tighter. She couldn’t stop now, not now. Gritting her teeth, she broke into a sprint. Limbs tore at her face and arms, their wicked thorns biting into her skin. Above her, the red moon shone brightly in the night, lighting the path ahead.
“Only a little farther, my son.” She panted into his silver hair.
He clung to her, his tiny fingers curling into the folds of her dress. His cry hurt her ears, but the pain was a pleasant reminder that he was still alive.
They’d meant to kill him, this alien child that had grown in her belly—her child. Regardless of his blood, she loved him. He was hers, her son. Instinctively, she adjusted her arms, wrapping them tighter around him, and kissed his forehead.
Abruptly, the path dipped low into a ravine. Swamp

You were currently lounging on the couch at your friend's house. His name was Sollux and he was really cute. You loved his hair, glasses, and just basically everything about him. The sun shimmered in through the window and shined in your face. You sighed and moved over to the side a little on the couch. "Stupid sun..." you muttered. Sollux was out of the room getting some drinks and snacks to have, leaving you alone in the living room. With a groan, you basically threw yourself off the couch and made your way to the radio, perking up in thoughts of this being great.
You turned the radio on, not realizing it was actually a CD. Suddenly the song, Wobble Baby by V.I.C, starting booming around the living room. Well, you found out his bass was turned up loud. Nice job!
Not. You stumbled back a little, bumping right into Sollux which made you jump. He had put the drinks an

¿La Lluvia de Sangre le dejaría pasar? Incluso él, el mago oscuro más viejo de todo el planeta, no conocía la respuesta.
Quería más poder, siempre lo hacía y sabía que el Poder Absoluto le esperara después de esa barrera.
Siempre había creído, como muchos antes que él, que si era cierto lo que decían las profecías y la barrera de la Lluvia de Sangre guardaba el Poder Absoluto detrás, entonces ningún poder existente en el mundo podría atravesarla, puesto que su fuerza sería también absoluta.
Pero él había sobrevivido a treinta cataclismos de poder (12 de ellos provocados por él mismo) y había descubierto que esa creencia era falsa. La barrera era muy fuerte, sí, pero no absoluta.
Lentamente, comenzó a formular la magia que rompería la Lluvia de Sangre para siempre. El remolino de color rojo, fruto de las aberrantes magias que crearon el Poder Absoluto, s

Deep in the stillness,
I wander but a ghost thru mists of shadow & sanguine ..
And the trees bathe in the mystique of Night’s serenade
Covet thee my love immortal,
for we are hunters of a dream untamed;
poetry bleeding into the abyss ...
Candle whispers drink a sky of wine, unto where I sojourn —
in the caress of your lips, and ache of darkest Moon

He goes to church, just because, and listens to the sound of words like grace and salvation and lets his eyes find the broken lines and chips in the podium.
Breakfast is toast, because thats all the diner downstairs serves, and its always eaten in five neat bites.
Light is always white, never sterile.
Stars are planets, never things to be wished upon.
And people are atoms and molecules and tissue and sliding muscle.
He works as a dentist, and asks How has life been treating you lately? and makes soft noises in the back of his throat, so theyll come back next time.
Favorite colors dont exist.
Nor first loves,
Wanting to eat
And wanting to sleep
And wanting to touch
Because of hormones and synapses and instinctual need.

Juvia's POV (Chapter Five)
“Juvia…Come with me” Gray-sama asked extending his arm towards me
“Oh Gray-sama where are we going” I said taking the hand lightly as he kept a firm grip.
“To do it… with you” he said cheerfully gliding me to a Love hotel
“Gray-sama!” I say all happy.
“Juvia are you working?” Mirajane asked me giving a concerned looking face.
I snap out my daydream and just nodded my head; we were at the Fairy Tail Library helping out to clean the books.
The last time someone went in here was when Natsu, Lucy, Gray-sama and Erza got lost in the past but now again we had to help clean.
I climbed up the ladder, three books in hand and one hand gripping the ladder.

Dance In The Dark EpilogueRio de Janeiro was as beautiful as her father had always said it was. Crystal smiled as she surveyed the area from her high perch, which was the head of the Christ the Redeemer statue over looking the city. She didn't think she'd ever get tired of such a view; the lights of the city were magic reflecting off the water. Climbing the statue was amazingly easy, now that she knew how to use her powers. When Mael had asked her where she'd planned to go when Adrian deemed her "trained" he'd seemed pleased by her decision, but made her swear to check in every week, which she'd done without fail. He'd made it very clear that she was on probation. She couldn't complain, ever since she'd come here the nights had been very quiet. Part of her liked the peace, just sitting and enjoying the warm night air, but part of her still itched to be busy.Dance In The Dark Epilogue4 years ago in General Fiction More Like This

are made of air and thoughts
Yet you keep clashing against them,
Keep feeling them burning your skin and soul.
Everywhere you look, you see space,
Freedom, joy, love
And when you move,
there's those invisible bars to crush you where you stand.
Funny how I used to think it was the world
with all those labels and brandings
Built like a bird cage to shut us for the pleasure of others.
Read, for ridicule and laughter and disgust over our pretty feathers.
Funny how it turns out I didn't see
that the greatest cage of all is me.
My own body is my cage.
It caged my real self, threw me to the wrong place
I'm not a bird, I'm an angel.
It caged my self-control
Though I admit, that was my fault.
It caged my love for life
Tearing me down from within.
Maybe when these painful coughs
and this choking blood release the cage
I'll finally be free.
But I've spent so much time here
This bird cage is all I know
I'm afraid to let go.

In each human life comes a time when he has to say goodbye to his past. You have plugged the door behind it and begin to live a new life. But not always you manage to get rid of the past.
You never know whether it will needle through a key hole or door bottom. You never know whether, like you, other people from the past have closed door from past and started a new life.
Either way, you just know that you should get rid of it as soon as possible, because your past, whatever it is, will corner you earlier or later.

I sat there, microphone in hand, just waiting for it to be over. I loved every one of our concerts and every one of our fans, but I didn't care to sing tonight. I had no drive.
"Come on, Zayn," Harry said, breaking me out of my trance. "You'll do fine tonight." I shrugged carelessly and stood up, turning to a tall mirror. At least I looked good. I fixed my hair and followed the boys to basement level below the stage. I was used to all the lights and the sounds now and the people running back and forth preparing. It always seemed like it was us boys who were calm. Harry was always the most nervous, but Niall only looked forward to the end of the concert when he could attack the food table again.
As we stood there in the elevator that would lift us up onto the stage, I thought only of the girl I missed. I was sure that Rose could never be replaced b
