Although my wounds had healed, I decided to leave a scar on my back as a reminder of what had recently transpired. I needed something to help me remember why I was so adamant about exacting my revenge on Allen Walker.
I planned and plotted endlessly for months. The Earl was busy, so he didn't seem to notice my excessively foul mood and strained attempts at civility. The other Noah figured I was going through puberty, or something of the sort, though I, in actuality, far surpassed many of their ages.
As much as I tried, or rather did not, I could not get old white-hair out of my head. He overtook many of my thoughts. He kept appearing, night after night; plaguing my dreams with glimpses of his light grey eyes, flashing sadistically as he shot me again and again. The paralyzing pain and the almost-kind touches consistently haunted me. His image was over-taking me and I needed to rid him from my mind for good, ev

by Uwe Lammler
We live in tribes, where strife and envy
From the edge of history cries out for fratricide
We dream in forests with dense foliage,
In the fog and below the silence of the Rauhnacht,
We reign in legends, sung from far away,
Noone penetrates in the glow of our Sun Fire
And lately became a name our taint and reward
But even our becoming was always passion.
The wall of the Romans cut through our land,
The West and the South supported the enemy
And bought from outside with good profit
Amber and various household items made of tin,
But even the tamed in the Roman state,
Thought about renunciation and vile treachery,
Wakes up in the Cherusci the old teutonic spirit,
Varus will become the victim of the German passion.
Who doesn´t avoid horror, should be warned,
Death won´t be longer a suffering, the death will be passion,
Who stays close to the source, who gives birth to life,
Laughs at the fools who adorn shamefully themselves,
Barbar, which was meant a

I go back outside to look at the building's front. It was the same, a bit deteriorated, but nonetheless, the same building the golden-eared neko and I hid in. I walk back inside and to the mayor. "Yes, I can promise you this: this is the building."
"Huh, we'll do a more investigative search. For now, is there anything else we can help you with?"

Towers of books and mounds of paper were scattered about the floor, greedily consuming every inch of breathable space.

He paused, a flood of relief washing over him as he held the familiar black box in his hands. It had been shipped from far beyond his borders, return address wisely changed. The Alliance knew much, but shared little. Within hours, they had shipped him the necessary supplies, entirely aware of his plight. The system was a delicate transaction of goods catering

He had platinum blonde hair and hair icy blue eyes. He smiled a little and said "I wanna keep this one, Big Brother!"

The sounds of metal clanging against the concrete ground reverberated throughout the crowded street. Men in armor and weapons in hand were obviously on the prowl again. Teeth clenched and angry expressions crossed over their hideous faces as they were chasing the most notorious criminal in Teratiz. Their attempts at trying to gain up to the thief was fruitless, however, as said criminal was creating a larger distance between herself and the angry mob of soldiers. This was all fun and games for the young girl though. It put a smirk on her face to see King Suzaku's men so upset.
As the youth turned a corner, the men caught a slight glimpse of her face before she disappeared out of sight, but to their disappointment, the girl was wearing a white, plain mask over her face. The girl was wearing a black hoodie that looked too big on her and jeans that had wears and tears on them. Her long chocolate colored hair swaying against the wind as her feet guided her away from the guards

"Humans can talk?" Shai blurted out and looked toward the ocean. Our younger brother Taylor was motioning for us to return to the boat. We couldn't risk being here too much longer.
"Yes," the tiny girl answered both of us in one word.
"That means "I began but Shai quickly stood up and interrupted me.
"It MEANS that she can tell others about us. We need to get out of here."
I quickly stood up as well and watched Shai easily step right over the human girl. I watched nervously as her head cocked up as if trying to watch the movement, but it was causing too much strain on her neck. Shai paid no attention to her as he began to wade into the ocean. I stared down at the girl, her tiny knees shaking, and her beautiful strawberry blond hair blowing in the beach breeze.

"What?" I asked, unable to hide my shock regarding his request.

The outside was just as cheery; the sun beat down on the whispering sea grass. The soft breeze twisted through the palm trees' large fronds and rabbits bounced happily after grasshoppers. The gentle waves crashed against the white beach, spraying droplets of clear water into the air and crabs scuttled across the sands, finding leftover remains of a dead fish.
A day like this should have been a day when she could happily wave to her father as he sailed out to sea and spent the rest of the lazy day basking in the sun with Ari, watching her draw fantastic mermaids and eating Chloe's homemade chocolate chip cookies.
But here she was, with her best friend on this beautiful day, inside the house and

He whispered "Are you okay?" I clamped my mouth shut, refusing to answer. He observed me with his storm-blue eyes, and said "I won't hurt you." I glanced at him before trying to struggle free again. He sighed, and said "If I put you down, can I have some answers?" I glanced at him, and reluctantly nodded. He put me next to him, and I glared at him for a second before he asked "Are you okay?" again. I sighed, and said "Yes."My Borrowers Stories Chapter 43 years ago in General Fiction More Like This

"But that cannot be. We left her sleeping in the forest in the... other part. If not some wandering beast, then the cold of this night must have surely killed her." said the first maid.

I was slight, a small gasp that caused me to jerk my head around in surprise. The turtle was not alone.
"Talli?" I said, hardly believing the words that were escaping my mouth as I took in the strange scene. The turtle was somehow holding the tiny girl in its mouth by her tiny tube top looking thing, allowing her limp body to dangle from it. It was amazing that it managed to stay in place and I was relieved that it did. I wasn't quite ready to find out just how human Talli looked without her shirt. Bu

He was quite sure by this time that he would not receive a reply, but it helped to temporarily sooth his temper in a way that he could not understand. Perhaps she was playing a game. It was something in hearing her name; it invoked pleasant thoughts of her face that he could not repress.
"Where are you, my pet?" The amusement was fading quickly, "Elle."
Now stepping across the room slowly, Mias called out to Elle a few more times as he leaned in to give the washroom a more thorough visual inspection. Each step he made with caution, not knowing entirely what to expect. It was hard to contain his amusement when he saw the discarded wet towels on the floor, yet he was also disappointed that he had missed out on a delicious opportunity.
But, there was no sign of Elle anywhere. He could feel his blood starting to boil, his cheeks burning red visi
