The boy slightly opened one eye to be face to face with what appeared to be another homunculus. This one was pale and long stringy green hair; he wore a tight black shirt that stopped at his chest with a matching black skort, the oroborus symbol was tattooed just below the skort on his right leg.Unattainable Illusions +Ch. 1+9 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
"You look like someone I used to know..." Envy said with a small smirk. He pushed his thumb under the boy's chin and lifted it up so he could get a good look at his face. "A man I once killed perhaps...? And to think I could never see you as pathetic as I once did when I blew your stomach to pieces!" He said, cackling. "No...But you're not the same boy...Are you? Though that face makes my stomach squirm...The thought of helping you makes my blood curl." He snorted. Envy then reached in his pockets as he drew out a few small, blood red stones.

48: Rose "Doctor?" I called blindly into the TARDIS. I had just been in the library, looking for a good read, and I had came across a really dusty old book with the title worn off the side. When I picked it up to see if the title on the front was visible, and a picture fell out. The picture was of a very pretty girl with dirty blond hair and brown eyes. Ordinary enough, unless you know the Doctor. You see, in all the time I've known the Doctor, he's never carried, or owned, a picture. Not of anyone.48: Rose5 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

The pit of growing anxiety that was your stomach began to churn. Every step, every thought, every breath reminded you of him. You had always been a fighter, a survivor, but you didn’t know how you could possibly win this battle when it was against yourself.

Deep down you knew that you still needed him in your life and that the two of you would meet again in the future. You just didn’t know when.

We pulled up to an old two-story house; the white paint was chipping off, two windows showing in the front, a wooden door, and a small awning. Around it were two big oak trees on either side of the house, a small garden, grass, and a curving stone walkway. There was a long driveway leading down to a small garage. As soon as the car was stopped, I quickly hopped out of my mother's grey Toyota Camry, and rushed up the walkway to the door. "knock-knock-knockknock-knock-ding-dong!" The last note of the bell rang out, and then the sound of locks turning was heard. Brenan stood in the doorway, "Sammy!" He squealed wrapping me in a tight hug. "Bren Bren!" I said in the same tone as him, returning the hug. My mother's heals clicked annoyingly against the walkway, sounding her approach. "Hi I'm Samantha's mom. Is your father home?" Her fake smile, an enthusiasm, made my stomach curl up. "Yeah, let me go get him. You can come in if you like. Oh and Sammy?" He asked, looking me. "Yes Bren?" I res

The fact that a very violent, unpleasant looking one was crawling through the painting didn't help, either.
Franticly, he dashed forward, noticing some of the dolls looked a little overstuffed.
'Something special,' he thought to himself. 'Maybe its inside the belly of this doll!'
Garry tossed his fear away, and grabbed the doll with both hands, tugging at its stomach with his slender fingers. When he couldn't get the fabric to budge, he tore at it with his teeth. With a rip, the seam became undone, and the contents inside...
