Friendship Can BeFriendship can be pureFriendship Can Be2 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
It can be hard to track sometimes, time that is. We are aware of it but we never truly realise just how fast it can pass by as we swept along in it's wake.
When we are young we do not think of the future behold the simple abstract view of the world that the young can have. To us the future was just another second of play, another second of laughter, another second of tears.
Friendship can be innocent
We spent our days, my dear friend, in the fields of youth. The sky was always blue to our innocent minds, even when the day was one of rain and cold, the sky was blue to us.
We played in the mud, we picked daisies and made daisy chains and we didn't have a care in the world. The future was too distant for us to consider, there was only the present moment.
Friendship can be hope
We held hands and skipped through the puddles left by the rain. We would share food that our mothers made for us and

Truth or Dare?
Thirteen-year old Isabella Garcia-Shapiro skipped up to the worn wooden gate that separated the driveway from the Flynn-Fletcher backyard. She paused for a moment to adjust the pink ribbon tied around her raven braids before reaching over and flicking the rusted latch up. Hey, guys! She greeted, flashing an adorable smile at her redheaded crush. Whatcha doin?
Nothing. Phineas answered, flicking his head to give a smile of greeting to the girl.
Isabella frowned slightly, closing the gate behind her. Nothing? She repeated, a bit dubious. It wasnt very often Phineas answered her catchphrase with nothing. She cast a glance at his brother, who was lounging against the trunk of their sacred tree with his eyes closed. It seemed Ferb was as content to do nothing as Phineas was.
Sure. We havent had a do nothing day in a while. Phineas explained. Sometimes its good to ju
A Night with TREAIve always thought that I lived a very boring, very normal life for someone my age, a sixteen-year old second year high school Japanese student. I went to a good high school, made decent grades, and then stayed to train with the volleyball team. Id go home, exhausted but satisfied, and be greeted by my Okaa-san and my little sister, Eiko. After taking a bath I would finish all my homework for the day, which would sometimes take longer that I would expect, and collapse onto my bed. Then I would wake up the next day, and the whole cycle would start all over again.A Night with TREA6 years ago in Fantasy More Like This
Im not saying that its necessarily a bad thing, of course. I know I have life pretty easy, especially compared to some of friends and classmates. Still, I want something interesting to happen in my life, just for once.
I guess I should have been careful what I wished for.
Today was the same as any other day. After getting ready, I walked to school with Risa and Kimiko. Thinking back on it, I should have

Toby answered his door with a yawn. It was getting kind of late, even for him. There standing on his porch was his good friend Felix, or Pewdiepie to his many fans. The Swedish man looked shaken, but what caught his eye was the unconscious little girl no older than six in Pewdie's arms.
"Toby I need your help." He said in a hoarse voice. He was sweating and out of breath like he had ran all the way there.
"Explain to me what happened" Toby said as he sat in the waiting room of the hospital.
"I found her unconscious on the side walk when I was walking around town. There was no one around and she looked really sick so I picked her up and that's when I ran to your house because I didn't know where the nearest hospital was. I haven't lived here very long, remember?" Felix explained frowning slightly. That's when the nurse walked out.

Waking up in a hospital bed, bruised and gashed is the last place I want to be. The time I woke up was when the nurse was inserting a new IV into my hand. "W-what happened?" I mumbled, the nurse looked at me and smiled warmly. "You were in a little accident sweety." Pfft, little? I nodded softly. "Ok, what's the damage?"
"Well, other than bruising and cuts here and there, you should be good. But we're going to keep you over night to monitor you just to be safe." I nodded as I watched her leave the room. I can't believe this happened, it all seems so unrealistic. I looked up at my IV and watched the clear liquid run down the thin plastic tube. "This is perfect, one damn deer in the middle of the road and I swerved into a boulder."
"God, what happened!?" I looked over to my mom standing in the doorway clutching my younger cousin in her arms. I smiled and shrugged lightly. "Deer ran in the road, I'll be fine but they're keeping me overnight to monitor me

I don't think he'll turn me in.
Hmm, let's say he does. First, you told him you hated the government. STUPID IDIOT PERSON! You can get banished just for saying that. He could have been lying the whole time!

The Surfer and the Merman CH 7The Surfer and the Merman CH 73 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
Summer school had already begun for the day, but the teacher was running late, leaving all the students sitting in their desks, bored and nothing better to do. Skye, of course, never looked forward to summer school, but now that he had company waiting for him at home, he hated it even more. People were chatting with their neighbors, but Skye simply waited gloomily in his desk. He happened to glance over at the boy sitting next to him.
It was Asher, a quiet boy. He was completely lost in a book, he only paused once to adjust his thick-lensed glasses. It was the book that caught Skye's attention.
"Mystical Creatures," was written across the book, and also featured an image of a muscular troll of some sort that looked like it belonged in a fantasy video game. Skye wasn't surprised that Asher was reading something like that. Skye didn't know the guy too well, but he knew enough that he was the kind of guy who was interested in comic books and video games, basically anything revolving aroun

The Town XITwo weeks had passed, and no sign of Azriel. Jen had stayed up every night extremely late, waiting for him. She had waited for him every day at the street corner, then at the library. He never showed. Now, as she sat in the attic, holding a book that she hadn't even started to read, she was sure of one thing: he had to be turning her in. That had to be it. She looked back at how stupid it had been to give away her deepest secret to someone she hadn't even known for a week.The Town XI3 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
She decided to stop waiting for him. If he had already turned her in, then police officers would be at her house any day, so there was no point in missing any sleep. As she stood up, she heard a knocking behind her. Azriel stood in the window, carrying the books in one hand and holding himself up with the other. Jen ran over and quickly unlocked the window. First, she grabbed the books out of his hand, and this time he managed not to fall flat on his face.

The raven haired teen awoke to the light pitter patter of rain on the rooftop and windows. It was now the third morning since he and Shiloh met, and the two of them had become quite good friends in that time; despite the time being so short. But Casey made sure to keep his distance, as he always did. In his mind, no one could be fully trusted. Not even little boys that wore fluffy bunny hoodies, glittery converse, let alone pink hair.
To the beat of the light rain; Casey lifted his head from the foreign pillow and looked around. The first thing he saw, of course, was the strange gentleman lying next to him. Guessing from his own nudity, Casey could tell that his company was without clothing as well. Being as silent as possible, the teen slipped out of bed, quickly got dressed, and searched around for the man's wallet. Of course the fool had left it on the nightstand, out in plain sight. With that sly grin of his, Casey picked it up and plucked out whatever bills were inside, then slid

Two young men travelled down the hallway of their highschool. As usual the smaller was ranting about his companion's eating habits, something almost inhuman. However, the latter was preoccupied not listening to his counterpart's complaints but eyeing the attractive features of his friend. His ocean blue orbs swept over messy blonde hair down to supple lips running a mile a minute to a slender frame clad in the school's male uniform. If only they had some privacy to, well, study each other's anatomy.

"Wow, you're lucky. At least you found someone to be with. You know how I found this place? I decided to start taking a look around uptown. Actually, I had never been around this area before in my life."(He sure is talkative) That wasn't hard to believe. Most jobs and schools were downtown. Most of the clubs and restraunts (only for teenagers) were there. And the rule was, if you didn't have to be there, you shouldn't be there.
"So, what exactly is uptown that's so interesting? It's just a residential area, right?"
"That's what I thought."
They passed Jen's street. She looked up at him (he was so tall), "So, um..." she couldn't think of anything to say. "Uh...where did you go to school." Smooth, she thought to herself, How stupid can you be?.

"Now, Ellena, what did your grandmother tell you about playing in the swamp?" The voice that asked the question was soft and far from scolding. Every word that the young woman spoke seemed to be wrapped in love and tied with a smile. For some, such a caring tone would be reserved for only those dearest to them, but for Jessica it just came naturally. For her, every being - human or animal, living or dead - was precious.
That didn't make the child who sat before her any less nervous, the petite girl biting her lip and hanging her head forward so that her chestnut bangs partially hid her face. Far shorter than Jessica's own locks, they were also quite a bit darker and did an admirable job of casting the girl's face into sullen shadow.

Olive eyes were dulled with exhaustion. Nevertheless, they refused to rest closed. Lovino lay on the hospital bed, calmly recalling the moments when he thought his pregnancy had made him completely useless.
He hadn't been allowed to go out, Antonio made sure of that, so Lovino had been left to wander the house until tiredness took over him and he'd had no option but to retreat to the dorm or couch, whatever was closer, to take a little nap.
At first the Italian thought he was going to pass out of boredom, sure Antonio kept him well attended but, it was never enough. Then months started to roll by and Lovino found there were some things that could be done before the baby was born, like decorating the new room soon-to-be-nursery, or buying all the items they might need in the future (at least he was allowed to shop online, dammit), as girly as all that may sound; but fuck he was pregnant, what could be more unmanly than that?
At least Lovino had had some fun dragging his S
