The Gift - Chapter SevenI bit my tongue and walked out into the kitchen where I heard my mom doing something, since I knew that dad wasn't home anymore.

"So how do I look?" I asked her as I stood there waiting for one of a number things to happen. She turned around and looked at me with her mouth slightly open, as she thought of a question to ask until she had one.
"That looks nice dear. But I thought you were just going to watch a game?" she asked before I turned to walk into my room to check how I looked in the mirror again. "Are you meeting someone at the game?"

La Rukico Tailors was what I expected but larger. It was half a city block long and three stories high. Mr. Stroker said that it was the best in town, but I was more inclined to think that it was the only one in town. It couldn't be missed, once you were looking for it. It was a very clean modern building and it was as tall as the other buildings in the immediate area.
The name was plainly styled, but it was a very contrasting black that made it stand out against the white walls of the building. As we walked through the doors we were almost

The familiarity of the cupboard's soft wooden frame underneath tired fingerprints; the slight hesitation before the vibrant boxes; the moment of darting forward with speed to caress the cardboard before I change my mind. I like the noise of the kettle as it boils. No longer a traditional hob-and-copper affair, but the hum and trembling hiss and the soft blue glow telling me that the water's uncertain surface hasn't melded with the air quite yet. The way the mug fits into my hand, the cool comfort of palm against china, tracing the designs on it with impatient fingers as steam begins to swirl into the midmorning ki

several millenia have taught us that no one wants to look at
ugly things unless they were the ones to
find them first.
Now, don't get offended, but I could have sworn that I was standing in
the path of god's dying breath,
(guess I was wrong)
and I felt every last drop of creation wilt under my fingertips,
and that has made this winter all that more unbearable.
And if I'm not being entirely honest right now, I apologize,
but I never thought to sew myself up that way.
It never felt quite natural-
I prefer to keep my guts on the inside.

WiresHumanity's relationship with wires fascinates me.Wires1 year ago in Philosophical More Like This
From birth to death, our whole lives are regulated by wires. An egg leaves the ovary and travels down the Fallopian tube, and this is the way we are made. The umbilicus connects us to our parent. Arteries and veins look very much like wires, and it is they that nourish our bodies with oxygen and blood. The most precious thing in our body, the central nervous system, is essentially a thick cord of wires running from our brain to our tailbone.
Eyes are attached to our brain by stems. Ears are hollow wires which run deep into our heads. Muscles are made of tubes of specialized cells. Intestines
A Small Story about a Village and its Moon As a Chimchar, I used to love listening to stories, so my parents created a friendly competition in which they would try to come up with the most interesting story to tell me. Since mom was so well-travelled, she would almost always win; maybe this was in part because dad was just not a very good storyteller, kya. But one time, he did win. He told me the story of his first Harvest Festival.A Small Story about a Village and its Moon8 months ago in Short Stories More Like This

we are bent on self destruction
why not peace or friendship?
we are always ridiculed by someone else
we wage war on people. why? because they speak a different language? why? because they seem to stand for something they believe in that we say is wrong? why?
one word can mean a million different things
we make people feel so lousy that our human nature comes out and we get the felling to inflict pain on someone else or our own being.
people ask for peace but to have peace is no not war but world unity.
you may think that peace is the same as world unity but no it is

Tonight the World Dies
The night was dark; darker than anyone in the land had experienced before. The absence of light dominated everything. Brightly lit rooms seemed dimmer, early sleepers' sweet dreams became horrifying nightmares, and shadows seemed to become almost palpable. A grim silence swept over the land, dread filling the minds of those still awake.
Something was wrong.
Bartholomew bolted awake from a terrible dream. He flinched at the dark of his bedroom, feeling like it was grabbing at him with harsh hands. His wife, Meredith, was still, staring at him with wide eyes. The dream hadn't woken him up.

A bit lost, I looked around the small clearing I had found, some time back, along the river. It had become my own private training area. But what was I doing here? I had finished my training and had gone home already. I looked up; the clouds were dark and threatened to pour down water at any second. "This dream sucks if all it is, is me training more in the rain.." I jumped as I felt a hand rest on my shoulder. I looked back and probably should have been even more frightened at the sight of the masked boy standing by me but instead I quickly calmed down. I was, for some reason, more relaxed at seeing him.
