A friend and I were discussing world poverty issues because of something spoken about on television.

Light struggled to pierce the dense canopy overhead creating dancing shadows that were as dark and bottomless as pits, the temperature was cooler by several degrees but the air was closer, invasively so, bringing with it a hundred subtle sounds and smells that positively made the hair on the back of Izbors' neck stand on end.WH40K Chooser of the Dying: pt22 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
“Nervous boss?” inquired Vyacheslav. Izbor felt an ugly flash of irritation and leveled a chilly stare at the young pilot before tromping off through the loamy forest after their guide who had proceeded ahead.

A Trick to SleepIt was quite a sight for Mamori to see her fiancé struggling to get comfortable in the narrow train seat he was in. He fidgeted, and got up a couple of times, growling in annoyance and mumbled profanities that grew louder and louder, causing the others in the train to scoot as far away from him as possible. She could only watch sympathetically as she felt partly responsible for Hiruma's discomfort. "You really should try to get some rest," Mamori spoke up.A Trick to Sleep3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
"Yeah, well, sleep would come easily to me if you remembered the fucking sleeping pills," Hiruma replied with annoyance.
"I'm sorry, but we did rush after your game and I had to pack for the both of us. You haven't slept for over 48 hours now."
"I don't think I can fucking sleep," Hiruma scowled as he sank into his seat.
Mamori sighed, knowing how Hiruma was hard to handle when he had this attitude on. "Are you nervous because we're going to visit your father? We won't reach there in the next two to three hours so--"

Centaur: A Chaotic Tail Part 7Peggy blinked as they came to the more open area, though it didn't look like it was going to be open long. There were already new buildings being constructed in the empty areas. She wondered why anyone would want to fill in all the empty space . . . but shrugged, realizing she had no clue how a city this size even managed to stay orderly. Felix led her down the road, which seemed to be made of a flat stone surface with no sign of where the stones met each other. She wondered if magic was involved in its construction. Her hooves seemed to clatter even louder against this surface than against the cobbles. It made her grateful for the noise of the construction.Centaur: A Chaotic Tail Part 72 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

Valdens eyes crept open as sleep waned; the whole experience of sleep was rather odd to him, he remembered feel very weak, Apolon had explained it as tired then he laid down and lost several hours in unawareness. He felt rather good now and stretched in the soft covers and bedding surrounding him, the feel of the high thread count cotton was much like satin and it slid over his flesh in a most pleasing way.
Valden purred with satisfaction then hopped out of bed, the room was alight in the glow of the just risen sun and the heat from its rays felt good. Valden stared at the bathroom for a long moment then decided he wanted to try the shower, after all, unlike angelic bodies, human bodies got dirty. He strolled in flicking his tail back and forth then cringed when his foot hit the cool tile floor.

He hates all the mushy and corny things he has ever heard in his entire life. He even thought of bombing chocolate companies for their foolish idea of coming up with such ridiculous event. Love is in the air indeed, for everywhere he walks upon, he saw couples, girls giving chocolates and confessing at the same time, and all sort of things that he think is horrendously mushy.

"Carl, there's a dead human in our house!"
My best friend-and roommate-Carl, was in the kitchen, doing the dishes, which was odd, because Carl never did the chores.
He shuffled over and poked the dead body with his foot. "Oh...hey...how did he get here?" Blood was pooling on the floor, from multiple stab wounds in the dead man's chest.
His lying tone was obvious. I stared at him, alarmed. "Carl, what did you DO?!"
He waved a hand nonchalantly. "Me? I didn't do this."
"Explain what happened, Carl!" I said angrily. These kinds of things seemed to happen whenever I went out...
"I've never seen him before in my life!" Carl protested.
"Why did you kill this person, Carl?!"
"I do not kill people. That is..." he couldn't help glancing back towards the kitchen. "That is my LEAST favorite thing to do."
I sighed. "Carl, tell me exactly what you were doing before I got home."

Mamori could see the lack of a twinkle usually found in her daughter's eyes as Akari sniffed and sneezed.
Mamori couldn't help but worry.
The light coughing from Akari's cold had turned for the worse when it had suddenly started snowing while she was walking home with her mother and brother.
Flu season, Mamori thought.
"Here sweetie, drink some tea, it'll make you feel better, I promise."
She blew on the steaming cup of honey lemon tea and lifted it to her daughter's lips. Akari took a small sip but made a pained face when she tried to swallow.

Rob eyed the big red button, resisting the temptation to push it. "Hey Pete, look what I found!"
The salvage operation was one of the most promising their crew has been on; the demons slaughtered everyone in the underground facility and retreated without taking any of the spoils. They did leave, however, corpses in blue and white labcoats with blood smeared all over.
"What!" Came the muffled reply from the far side of the corridor.
Many of the reinforced doors were already bashed in or broken in half. Naturally, the crew raided the blood depository first - no self-respecting vampires would let all that tasty blood get ruined. It's good we arrived in time, while there's still electricity. Not even the clan leaders knew why only facilities such as these had electricity and working technology - or if they did, they surely did not bother telling Rob.

"Bullshit!" He shouted at no one in particular, earning him the stares of several more men who weren't already wondering why their commander was pacing the ground in front of the Maw; already, he'd lost three Chimeras and some 23 men and the battle hadn't even started in earnest.
For now, the Chimeras had been stored away in relatively safer areas of the established siege grounds, and were kept ready by their respective crews stationed nearby. Overall damage was more than Marasmus expected; early bombardment thankfully came with much lower accuracy and though the troops had been informed of such an outcome, the current performance was still extremely unsatisfying.

He stood up in one swift motion throwing back the black and red silk sheets.
