But no. It's just a simple story of high school life. Especially, under the eyes of two certain students, and their circle of friends.HA GB-Hey Alice Pilot6 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
The day began like any other would.
A girl, a Junior, sixteen years old, was at her locker taking out some items she needed for her first class. Her name was Alice Shortman, and was like any other typical girl, though pretty different. Her most notable feature was in fact, her oblong-shaped head, shaped much like an American football. Along with that, she had bright green eyes, medium-length blonde hair, and often wore a light blue ribbon tied into a bow on her head. She wore a green and red, short-sleeved off shoulder shirt with two thin straps, capri pants, and black sneakers.
Alice was an average girl, very sweet and always looking out for everyone, never turning her back on

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

You were alone from the start,
But you didn't care back then.
You were special.
So special that no one could understand you.
But that was special too.
No one could reach you in your bubble.
Then the others came.
They were more special.
You pulled away.
While being surrounded you felt so alone.
Until you were really alone.
And no one could understand you.
Not even you.
You tried to change.
But the bubble was strong.
You kicked and screamed, but no one noticed.
That was what the bubble was for.
Then came the time when they pushed you away.
They couldn't have known you are different.
Are you different?
you drifted away,
They won't remember.
They won't remember what they never knew.
Did you know?
Who are you?
Why is it painful?
What is painful?
Why are you crying?
Die deutsche Passion english translationDie deutsche Passion english translation3 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
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

A Loveless Day
(That Will Never Fade)
This same old dream that I so loath
A vision of a dull world shrouded in gray
As I walk down a never ending road
The colorlessness in everything never seems to decay
In slow motion I suffer alone
Under the liquid-silver droplets of rain
You had no idea how strong my love was
You played a part in the pain that was dealt and done
You didn't experience the ocean of tears that I had to swim through
You didn't see the countless days I had to endure without being around you
You never felt the sickness within the soul that I had kept
You never knew of the quakes in my heart that you had fed
For you I had damaged myself
For you I put myself through hell
But I swear it was worth it
Because now I know how hard life can get
I want you to realize that you aren't a loss
For you will always be known as my first love
This same old reality that I can't let go
A nightmare of a person who is so far away
As I try to run from the world

"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.

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.

As always during these last days, she was wondering if she did the right thing.
Sure -she thought- working for the army is better than being an assassin, but... and here she didn't know what to add.
After all that was just so wrong she wouldn't even know where to start from. Probably being the only female in the army would be a good start. Or also the fact that all her "comrades" were there just to escape the gallows was a point. She just felt out of place in their midst, but being the daughter of knights meant that she had to fight for her country.
And not as my mother would have wanted me to, that's for sure...
Even if she did learn the "arts of Raven Blade" from her, she did not have what it took to be an assassin. Nor she had the strength needed to follow her father's footsteps as an honorable Hawk Knight.
Thus, joining the army was the last option left open to her, because she would not even consider just hiding and bring shame to her

This was the first year that someone had made it through the political system with such 'wild' and flamboyant beliefs. The other two candidates were what humans were used to. They calmly explained that things have gone well with keeping things the way they were, so why change? They made it sound like such a logical argument, "if it ain't broke, don't fix it," type of thing. It made sense in a way, since Those Above Us "arrived" on earth, few bad things could be said about the changes they applied to our world. They eliminated violence, disease, illness and pain with drastic changes that apparently only took a few years. Gone were the days of wars, and now humans could live up for 175 hundred years almost as long as Those Above Us.Those Above Us Chapter 24 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

singing to me the story of time lost
when it came to searching for rainbows.
He showed to me the scorch on his wings
that he received from flying too close to the sun;
he cried and told me of his weathered legs
from the waves of the sea beating down on them.
"Stay in between," he cries,
his voice hoarse from inhaling
the winds of a sandstorm.
"Rainbows cause nothing but pain"
and I was too stupid to listen,
too stupid to understand
I have found out on my own,
since chasing rainbows will lead nowhere.
Chasing rainbows will be the death of me.
You're a rainbow, you have scorched my wings.
I should have stayed in between
like the mockingbird said
because here come the waves
