The woman laughed. "Catch me first, Fakir!" she called back, holding a feather quill above her head. Sunlight glinted off a gold band on her left ring finger.
"Why you moron... prankster!" Fakir yelled back, continuing the chase. She laughed even harder at that. They ran through the meadow, treading white and yellow flowers underneath them. Both of them were smiling through the chase despite Fakir's earlier words. Once Fakir could almost touch the hem of her long skirt trailing behind her, but she darted away before he coul
Shades of BlueBeing lakeside after rain truly was a wonder. The wind was still, the sky almost cloudless. Dew sparkled on the grass and trees, making their shades of green more vibrant, and the lake shone a deep sapphire blue in the bright midday sun. However, Fakir wasn't focusing on his surroundings. Instead, he stood on the shore, hands in his pockets, and watched Ahiru as she whacked at cattails with her beak and wings. He smiled at the happy quacks she made as she amused herself with the long grasses. One particular cattail caught her interest, and she ducked her head into the bundle of cattails to pluck it out from the middle.

Fight From a Nightmare - PTTThe swords crashed into each other and pushed each other away. Mytho spun and danced backwards, his onyx black sword held out in front of him by one hand. Fakir held his sword vertically with both hands, the silver metal of the blade shining. Mytho attacked, driving Fakir backwards with every swing of his cursed sword. Princess Tutu stayed with the unconscious Retzel, crouching over Fakir's friend protectively as prince and knight continued their duel.Fight From a Nightmare - PTT2 years ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This

I am a warrior strong with pen in hand
I am wise, a sage, with every phrase
I am one, yet many, sitting at home
I fly to worlds unknown from my chair
I travel to the future on a paper plane
I create and control many lives and stories
I dictate the good and the bad with ink
I don't want to walk out of my universe
I want to stay where I fly in control

Warmth Without and WithinA picture frame on the wall rattled as Fakir slammed the front door shut behind him. In one arm he had his paper, quill and ink; in the other he held a shivering yellow duck wrapped up in his coat. "Okay, next time I'll keep a better eye on the weather," Fakir muttered as thunder boomed outside. Lightning flashed through the window as Fakir set his writing materials on his desk and placed Duck gently on the couch near the fireplace. "I'll get the fire going," he told her before rushing outside through the back door.Warmth Without and Within2 years ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This

Plotting A Date - AquashippingThe glorious song of the final school bell for the day pierce the classroom walls, singing into the ears of tired, bored, and excited students alike. Ryou Bakura had been one of the bored students, his long pale hair hanging over his face as he wrote something unrelated to his class notes in petite handwriting. It wasn't until he heard the lilting chatter of students around him that he lifted his head up and stopped writing. Quickly he slid his notebook and pen into the backpack sitting next to him. His gentle brown eyes scanned the room, on the lookout for any of the girls of his in-school fan club.

It was a bright, cheerful summer day in Domino City. A large cloud began to hide the sun just enough to drop the temperature by a few degrees. At the Domino City Park, the Inner Scouts, Joey, Tea, and Tristan, were hanging out in the shade of a row of trees. Joey just told a fabulous joke that everyone else was laughing at. Meanwhile, Yugi and Unmei were sitting at the edge of the large duck pond, talking and feeding the ducks with bread crumbs Unmei had brought.
"... and then Raye made me clean all the windows and sweep all the entrances," Unmei finished with a slight grimace. She immediately perked back up and assured the spike-haired boy

He looked up and saw Amber standing there, hands clasped behind her back. "How'd it go?" she asked with a small smile.
Jonouchi sighed, fingers sliding through his mass of bright blonde hair. "Could've been better," he muttered. He continued to walk past her; Amber turned, eyes worried, and walked next to him.

A Life with FeathersFakir sat crouched over his paper, writing with only lamplight to guide his hand. He pushed strands of hair behind his ear as his writing hand slowed down. Suddenly, he stopped, crumpling up the sheet of paper with his free hand. With a grunt he tossed it into a square bin that sat by the opposite wall a few feet away from him. "It's still not working," he whispered as he began writing over again on a new blank page.A Life with Feathers2 years ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
"Quack?" came a sleepy response from the foot of his bed. Duck looked at Fakir with worried eyes, even as her eyelids drooped. "Quack quack quack."

Malon's Tale of FriendshipI was not always in love with the Hero of Time. Rather, when I first met him, I found him a rather strange child- dressed in green clothes, traces of baby fat still rounding his cheeks, a glowing fairy floating around his head. Link claimed he came to Father's ranch out of curiosity and a desire to rest from his adventures, but I thought the Goddesses sent him as a little joke. After all, I rarely talked to or played with other children my age, because of both being busy on the ranch and my natural trait to spend time by myself. In truth, I preferred taking care of and singing to my little horse Epona over the presence of human company. Yet,Malon's Tale of Friendship3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Guardian in SorrowLuna walked around the school building, keeping her feet steady. Then, she broke into a run, grinning as if the sun illuminated her. She snatched the silver clip that held back her hair and allowed her long black hair to flow behind her with the wind she created by running. The thought entered through her mind again and again that she was going back, back to see the fairies she had just discovered weeks before. She couldn't even believe her luck, even after close to a month, and with a laugh she thought, I never thought anything that fantastic would ever happen in my life. But... Fairies exist!

It was a calm atmosphere, with subtle crickets chirping in the distance and lightning bugs illuminating the air around them with soft flickers.

is a peaceful place
on a large college campus
The dark ceiling of sky above you
Save for the hints
Of snow gray mountains ahead
Your words cling to you like rope
Never reaching another's ears
For the few that pass you are in groups
Or plug their ears with music
The light from the building glass
Reaches you, tries to pull you to it
With long, tender fingers
But you walk past, not heeding, looking up
The faint chill arms of the dark
Wrap around your arms and shoulders
A shawl, a comforter, a whispered song
Giving you a smiling solitude

And then there was still even more time--time to chat with Pique and Lilie, time to find Autor in the library and ask him which stories had happy endings, time to read those stories and then tell Fakir all about them.
