The Buckle Game - TGThe summer season usually brought out the idiocy in teenagers, or at least that’s what seventeen year old Emmi Lams thought as she walked through the doors of the clothing store she worked at. The store was called Buckle and they were known for selling designer jeans and were pretty friendly to their customers. She had managed to get hired on as a part timer over the summer months while she was out of school. If she was lucky they’d keep her around when the summer had ended.The Buckle Game - TG1 year ago in Short Stories More Like This
There was a stupid game that a lot of folks played when it came to walking into the store, the goal was to walk from the front entry doors to the far back wall and back to the front doors without being stopped by one of the employees. The employees were supposed to help anyone who stopped in if they weren’t busy helping someone already, which is how the game started.
Emmi had watched this go on all the time, mostly when she was behind the cashier desk and she was frankly getting tired of it. So to

I glanced over. Annabeth was staring down at the wooden table in silence. I tried to catch her eye, to see if she was OK or not. She had looked so shocked before.
It wasn't often that someone shocked my girlfriend.
She refused to look up, though. I could see worry lines creasing her forehead as she furrowed her eyebrows. Her lips were pressed into a tight pink line.
Jason went on with the meeting. As he talked, Annabeth's gray eyes darkened until they were practically black, like a storm threatening to hit.
I tried to pay attention, really I did. I knew what he was saying would probably be important later on.
But that was later on, and right now all I could think about was that Annabeth was upset.
I tuned in a bit when Jason mentioned the Titan War that was fought last summer. He was discussing battle ta

I awoke to the sound of Annabeth's loud annoying snoring. I had this dry nasty taste in my mouth. I looked down to see my girlfriends sleeping figure. Man did she look cute like that. Her hair covered up most of the pillow and most of her face. I mean it took all my manly strength to pull away from her, but eventually I did. I climbed out slowly trying my best not to awake her up and tip toed my way to the bathroom. I grabbed my toothbrush, put toothpaste on it and went to brushing my pearly whites. Through my mirror and open door I could see Annabeth climb out of bed and walk slowly to me. She wrapped her amrs around me while I kept my eyes on her through the mirror still. I spit the last of the Colgate and rinsed my mouth.
"Morning Sleeping beauty. How'd you sleep?" I asked turning around to face her. She wiped the sleep still in her eyes away.
"Fine. Since you were with me," She responded looks like the sleep wasn't out completely.

Not that Leo had anything against his coffee- it tasted great. But it wasn't exactly his idea of one on one time.
The door swung open, and Leo was surprised to see Reyna enter the cafe, her dark hair swept back by the mid-autumn wind and her obsidian eyes troubled.
He hasn't talked to her much ever since before the quest even started, but he did come to some conclusions on her: She never laughed, she always looked miffed, and she seemed to bore into your soul whenever she looked at you.
Leo frowned as she took her drink and sat at a small, secluded table in the corner. She looked so sad and drained, staring at her recyclabl

If I live through this, he thinks, I'm gonna kiss her.
It's a ridiculous thought, of course. A very Wally thought. Especially at a time like this, when he should be worried about the state of his uncle and not the affinity of Artemis' lips.
But he can't help himself. Sure, he's been focused. He's been focused this whole time, studying his surroundings, figuring out that the Team is only still alive because the JLA is being controlled. Limited. Manipulated by Vandal Savage and a kid who happens to be a Lord of Chaos.
But he's also been distracted. He's been increasingly aware of Artemis' presence, tediously conscious of how close she is, of her positioning and movements.
It's time he stops flat-out denying it.
He's intoxicated by her. He's fascinated by her. She's the only woman he's ever met who's made him like this. Who makes him nervous. Who makes him angry. Who throws off his cool demeanor, rips it off like a painful blister, and challenges him

Souvenir"Ugh Last time I go out for Mexican food with you." Wally said with a groan as he looked back at the sleeping Conner. He had agreed to stay at Mount Justice to hang out with his teammates over the weekend. The sounds coming from his stomach told him that a quiet sleep was not going to happen for him. He left the room and quietly shuffled his way toward the kitchen, hoping that some Pepto Bismol would be waiting for him there. When he stepped into the kitchen, he walked to the cabinets and, after some searching, found the little pink bottle. His stomach gurgled again, so he grimaced and took a quick swig of it. "That is gross " He muttered, clearing his throat and taking another swig. He heard a small a clatter behind him and he whipped around, looking at the source from the dark of the kitchen.Souvenir3 years ago in Drama More Like This

He should have been scanning the area in the dim light of the fire, looking for potential threats. He should have been keeping a tight grip on his sword, ready to attack at a moment’s notice. He should have been keeping his ears open, listening for something that he might not be able to see.
But what was he doing instead? Staring at Annabeth.
She was curled up on her side, hugging her knees to her chest tightly, her facial expression tense, as if she were dreaming of something unpleasant. Her ankle and her various other scrapes were finally beginning to heal now that she was resting, and Percy was relieved. He’d had to carry her half the day because it hurt her too much to walk. He didn’t mind carrying her, obviously, but he had been worried about her. He still was.

The barn was larger than Tim had originally thought with high ceilings and even what looked like a small kitchen area.
Mr. Smith went over to the small kitchen area and took a bottle out of the refrigerator looking at the date on the label to make sure it was still good.

Tim took the bottle and looked at it for a moment. What could it hurt to drink a bottle of milk?
