Chapter 4: Engarde
If she had expected a somewhat more informal greeting her disappointment showed only in the tiny upward flicker at the corners of her generous mouth and the glow of what Spock took to be ironic amusement in her eyes. She mocked his courtesy.
Still he observed, less than dispassionately, his childhood friend had matured into an extraordinarily beautiful woman conspicuous even to someone who was notorious for failing to notice such ephemeral distinctions.
The pale skin of her face and that one bare shoulder gleamed against a sweep of ink-black hair held only by a fragile coronet of gold wires studded with tiny emerald gem-flowers. Her patrician features were finely cut, her deep set green eyes brilliantly aware, but there was also something ruthless, even slightly cruel in the look she bestowed upon him, a determination that belied her slender body and warned him to be cautious.
"I am honoured by thy service, cousin." She said, finally. "But once we met with less proto

We passed through the gates with no further trouble and began making rounds through the village. After we had circled four times, Deidara sighed, "Damn jinchuuriki it's going to take us a while to find her if she's even here hmm." "Why do you curse the ones possessed by evil manidoog?" I asked. "They should know their place, but they think they're human hmm," he answered. Still confused, I said, "That doesn't explain why you don't like them." "I don't know they're lesser beings hmm," he shrugged. "They can't help it. Elders choose who's to carry the burden, regardless of whether or not they want to," I pointed out. Sighing wearily, the arsonist asked, "Why do you have to argue so much hmm?" I allowed myself a small smile and replied, "I don't know; I guess old habits die hard." "Interesting I take it you used to argue with everyone back in Konoha hmm?" he chuckled, nodding toward a dango shop that had caught his attention. "Not really everyone, just friends and family,"

Sasori was waiting for us outside, grumbling that we had kept him waiting. "Let's go! You two love birds have kept me waiting long enough," the red head growled, turning toward the path. My mouth hung open in shock from the puppet's blunt words. " what the hell did you just say?!" I asked, feeling my cheeks turn red. "It's obvious, isn't it? The both of you have been inseparable since we recruited you," came the gruff reply. "What can I say; she can't keep her hands off of me hmm," the artist chuckled. "-_- Ugh! I can't believe you just said that " I face palmed. The puppet rolled his eyes and muttered, "Just don't keep me waiting again." I turned around and swiftly hit the blonde in the back of his head. "The hell is the matter with you?!" I snarled at him. "What?" he chuckled, "I was just kidding hmm." He then sculpted one of his clay birds and held out his hand expectantly. "Coming hmm?"

He crawled over the scaffold and he was able to see a circular room down below.
"Let me go!" yelled Lolo struggling as she was being dragged in by the men with masks.
The others were shoved forward and then tied to poles on the side of the room.
Banning struggled against his captor who was wearing a hood covering his face. In horror,
he was able to see who was behind.
"Captain?" said Banning shocked, but the glassy eyed man locked the handcuffs and turned away.
The group of men started to line up and started chanting in a weird unrecognizable language.
Klonoa could over hear their words from above.

As the chatter continued, the far wall where liquefied into a black void. The lights dimmed as a pair of angry jagged red eyes emerged from the darkness. The eyes gazed from one side to the other of the room. A deep gro

Leorina ran quickly with Klonoa on her left shoulder with Lolo trailing behind. As she went through the hole on the wall she saw the rear door of a van shutting down as it was speeding away.
Popka had to run around the building to meet them with Tat drifting behind.
"What happened?" yelled Popka when he saw Klonoa hanging limp on Leorina's shoulder.
"Long story. We need to hide." Said Leorina coldly.
Popka pondered briefly.
"I know. Follow me"
Later, Banning knocked on the door twice and the old lady answered.
"Hello Ms Hong" said the agent taking his sunglasses off.
"Hello" Said the sweet old lady opening the door. "On the back" she said shutting the door behind her.
Banning passed through the beaded curtain to the kitchen and then to the backroom of the restaurant.
Klonoa was lying on the bed covered with a blanket. Lolo was at the bedside sleeping with her head on his belly.
Leorina was standing on the other side staring out the window while Popka and Tat played go fish on the floor

Her bare back looked beautiful and filled Klonoa with an overwhelming sensation of bliss.
He got closer and was able to get his lips closer to the back of her neck. He felt her warmth tickling his nose.
"Klonoa" called a distant voice.
Klonoa's nose winked and his ears twitched. Nothing would interrupt this moment.
"Klonoa!!!" Yelled a piercing voice at the same time a wailing noise of a passing by dump truck yanked him out of his sleep.
He woke up shuddering all over. It was cold outside on top of the Aluminum made stage. He turned around and it seemed that Popka was trying to call his attention.
"Wake up sleepy head!" said Popka. "We have company down below"
Klonoa rose and crawled to the edge of the scaffold and saw a man in a suit looking around the area.
"How long has he been there?" asked Klonoa.
"Maybe half an hour or so .." peered Popka. "I don't think he is l

Lolo opened her eyes as the sunlight reached her eyelids and the birds singing reached her ears. She turned around and saw the placid face of her hero. Klonoa was in deep sleep and purred with delight in the warmth of the bed.
Lolo was in love. She contemplated his jet black skin and the gloveless hands that had embraced her.
She reached for his face with her hand and started brushing with tenderness.
"Life is so cruel" she whispered. "Being taken away against your will to fight battles and wars that are not yours" she sighed as Klonoa moved his face towards her hand with delight. "What cruel fate caused that to happen? I would like to know ."
"Wariru? .." said Klonoa as he slowly blinked.
Their eyes met. Her warm blue eyes staring at him with tenderness. Klonoa got closer and embraced her body feeling her thin and warm velvety fur. He never felt so happy. He felt this

The young boy stared at the carved twin oak doors, speckled in swirls & finished with lighter wood. He squinted at the dark iron dragon head that held a ring on it's long, slender maw. With some thought he decided to enter this seemingly forbidden mansion. It appeared to be the a small front room, he wished to find the main front entrance since it was a supposedly richer place, & to find where the displays are might just get this boy money in his curious pocket. He gave a un-appealed glance around the room & convinced himself that this place didn't give him the itch to explore.

I fell asleep half-dead,
too exhausted to rest my head,
eyes swollen with blood,
hands covered in hardened mud.
My nose itches and drips
as my sanity slips.
But what did I expect
from crying in the rain again?
I'm such a weak person
crying in the rain again.
You're not supposed to be able to tell
if its water or not so there I fell
bawling like a baby
and thinking maybe just maybe
you were still here
but you're not and ya won't my dear.
I was crying in a street corner,
being the only mourner.
Really, what did I expect
from crying in the rain again?
I'm such a weak person
crying in the rain again.
People walked by quickly and gawked,
adults snickered and mocked
but who are they to judge?
This loneliness won't ever budge.
They all walk by purely happy
wondrous lives with ecstasy
the way ours used to be
before you met eternity.
Now it's only this guy
that can't help but endlessly cry.
How could they know this pain?
It grinds away, making me insane.

chapter 1. Runaway~
"Quick, after them!"
I could hear there panicked voices of the group behind me as I franticly ran ahead. My legs were going numb as if someone had injected them with Novocain. My throat was burning from the black fluid that had run down it recently, and sand was all I could see ahead of me. The gashes and scrapes on my body were festering and were gushing blood. Terror was all that I was feeling. Terror of returning to that Hell hole. Terror of losing the only person that I care about.
"Keep running!" I shouted to the one running beside me. I could tell he was losing speed. Because he was the weapon, he was not as great a runner as me. I feared for his life. We were losing ground.
"Kaida, you can't let me drag you down! Go on without me and find help!" my brother spoke shakily.
"I won't leave you, Raiden!" our hands have been clenched tightly this whole time. I could see the fear and sadness on his face. It broke my heart.

You slunk downstairs and ate breakfast all alone. This of course gave you the opportunity to use the cursed chopsticks without anyone watching you but you opted to eat with your fingers instead.

Only that plan failed when he saw that Leader-sama was already in there with Konan, discussing business. He had left there and tried the kitchen but was chased out by the angry Jashinist who was getting something cold to drink. Lastly he tried the balcony but the puppet master Sasori had occupied it with a pair of fresh bodies, keeping his more disturbing work outside so not to foul the odors of his and Orochimaru's room.

In a place called the Heart Shrine Village, this place was known for it's beauty, history, and of course, the color pink and things that are derived from love. The clear blue sky was carrying its sweet scent as the voice of an angry person erupted the peace. There was a young boy who was now training in his backyard. He had brown hair, dark magenta eyes, and light tanned skin. He was wearing an open, medium collar white jacket with short sleeves and light pink hemlines and a mesh shirt underneath it, dark magenta trousers, and dark gray sandals.

Ive always wanted to be someone else.
My eyes cant tell how sad you make me sometimes,
When you talk the way you do,
A tall authority that I must climb.
I cant help but tell you,
Im a lonely creature,
And your trials make me weary,
Make me sad.
I cannot say the words I feel,
Through all my explanations,
You will never know the deal.
What is up with me?
Do you even know?
Why wont you let me show you?
How hard it becomes to breathe.
A black crow I contrast,
With your sparkling dove.
Its never enough,
It will never be enough.
Constant tears of absolution.
To your ears,
I run on deaf mute.
-+-Thoughtful-+-Everything that everyone notices seems to be taken into account, even the smallest of things for when we go back to that place or moment in time; we seem to pick up on almost every little detail. Then it would seem strange that even if we can do that for portraits, places, animals We cant seem to do that with ourselves, humans.-+-Thoughtful-+-5 years ago in General Non-Fiction More Like This
Imagine this for a scenario; you are at the mall, surely you dont remember everyone around you, but little pinpricks of things stand out. Of course if you have been to this particular mall before then you can surely find your way around, or that your memory is jumpstarted by a certain object or landmark. But of course, as I said before, we dont take into account any human details we happen to partake in with our eyes.
Maybe once in a while you are walking from store to store you notice a person with a pretty shirt or maybe even an ugly one- anything of that context- and you might remember it for just a few moments longer, before that too.

Worthlessly expanding blue,
Stretching on forever,
White rips help it seem,
Less blank than before.
I cant help but hold my breath
As I plunge in,
Its so cold,
Dark and cold,
Makes a ripple cry forth.
Its so white,
So helplessly white,
Nothing is here,
Its so cold.
I cant help but fall down
Its so red,
So blindly red,
Brims warm colors forth,
As it burns my skin,
Burning and snarling.
Its so warm,
So wonderfully warm,
Like a warm embrace,
I cant help but dive into it,
And like ice-
I seem to melt.
I feel everything,
Somethings more than others,
I can become so
Its a lifes cycle,
But thats the funny thing
Im not a bird,
Nor am I a bee,
Not a cat,
Never a flea,
Not a dog,
But Im a life

All its solitary warmth,
Thats so easy to hide in.
Its not enough,
To want a better place for me,
A place where Im not injured,
By my so called family.
I miss home.
I miss all my friends and features,
That the scenery drips out inside,
To show a sunset sky,
Along with stars that blind me.
How sometimes I seem stoic,
Cold and unappreciative,
Of all my wondrous workings in my head.
Do you know-?
That home is not a place for me,
Certainly becoming a grave for me,
I rest inside,
To see the way youve changed,
And wondering what Ive became for-
This ever longing empathy.
Have you gone away again?...
My grasp is always slipping off these,
Handlebars that tense in my hands,
Down this blackened road,
Of Once Again.
Sometimes it hurts to laugh,
It burns to smile,
To love it is easy for me now.
I dont want this
Dont want this misery
Cant have this misery
ConfusionWhy do couples dub a song as theirs?Confusion5 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
It's so trivial, and they don't have the rights
Copyrighted to the artists, so where
Do they think saying "It's our song" is in their might?
Why does the heart keep yearning for the girl
You know is forever out of reach?
She stays in your heart, never leaving, being your world,
And there's nothing you can do, no matter what you preach.
Praying is so useless in these matters, always has been,
So why do you still pray for her to notice
That you've been in her face since who-knows-when?
The very idea, you know so well, is totally bogus.
Why do teens say that they're sooo in love,
But dump their "lover" weeks later, if less?
Obviously, these people haven't yet seen the dove,
And so, how do you convince them to confess?
Come out and admit that you were stupid and wrong,
Why hide from the omnipresent truth?
Instead, they plunge forth to another while they truly long
For the real feeling of love--still foreign and new.
Yet still, why is it so complicated,

Though he looks like that, he is dangerous.
Those words echoed through the burnt house that these soldiers have destroyed, just in order to get rid of him.
