Samus Puts on Some Clothes (and Some Other Stuff)
Zelda grimaced. A small buzzing forced its way into her foremost thoughts. A few moments of contemplation brought a revelation: it was the same sensation she'd had when she'd last had a headache. Sheik snickered. 'Did you really have to realize you have a headache?'
'Apparently,' Zelda snapped back, annoyed by the Shiekah residing in her mind. She sat up, and a glance towards the balcony doorway revealed that it was still night-time, though the moon was slowly making its' exit from the sky, and would be replaced by the sun in a few short hours. Her thoughts drifted to Samus, which had become less and less alarming and more and more comforting as she'd gradually sorted her feelings out. 'What do you think she's doing right now?'
'She's not cheating on you, Zelda. You know better than that.'
'Well, for all intents and purposes, you are me, and you're the on

We both got home in one piece and I let out a breath I've been holding in. Keegan went to his room and felt me to stand there. I got to tell someone about this, I can't keep this in or I'll explode!
" Hey, you guys are back? That's good. I'll be back around eight tonight." The unexpected voice made me jump out of my skin. Emily stared at me in shock. " A little jump today aren't you? Someone after you?" She joked and I gave a head nod that broke her smirk off her face.
" Can I talk to you? It's important." She cautiously walked over to the couch and sat down with me. It was silent as she waited to hear what I was going to say and me thinking what I should say. Should I tell her about it all? Maybe no

I waved at my mother with my free hand, while my other was holding onto my bag. ''I will, don't worry!'' It wasn't like the first time I took the train to school anyway. My school was a bit too far away for me to walk or cycle to. As soon as I closed the door, I dashed straight to the station. Didn't want to miss my train, even if it was just the beginning of the school year anyway. Today lessons would start again, which gave me a reason to show up on time.
... Not that I normally didn't show up on time.
Ah, before I go any further, my name is Takeuchi Sora. I'm currently a junior high school student. 16 Years old, at that. I can't wait to be 17, though. Oh, and I'm a bit of a tomboy.
Anyway, back to the story.. Where was I again? Oh yeah. I have to travel by train to get to school. It's not that bad, but I have to get up really early. Knowing I'm the type of person who sleeps in easily... Well, you can figure it out on your own.

D-day has arrived. Finlay's whole body is thrumming with excitement and a measured apprehension at what the day's events could unravel. He takes his brother's car (a silver slick BMW sedan that hasn't kissed the road enough) to pick Charlie up and drives toward the ranch. An eerily strained silence pervades the entire drive despite a few one-sided failed attempts at conversation. This silence, Finlay feels, is a defensive armour that doubles its resistance at every word he says, and made just for him. Maybe if he talked about family he would get him to talk and they could know more about each other.
"Hey, uh..." Finlay starts, feeling less and less confident with every sound that exited his mouth. "So... You know the chain of supermarkets 'Shoprite'?" His voice sounds unbearable even to himself. "Well my father owns it. My mom also works for a major news magazine as a foreign correspond
(m/m) Dollmaker Prt.3There was nothing much more between them that night. David, in all his late nights driven by obsession, had never experienced such a complete and thorough exhaustion. He carefully dried Julio's skin, running thick fluffy towels over his body and stroking and murmured until the boy ceased to tremble and his muscles relaxed. It was like comforting an infant, David reflected, as he lay Julio down beside him and continued to coax and soothe with his hands, but there was a certain sensuality to his actions that could not be denied. It was what he had intended, dreamt of and worked towards, after all. Each caress carried the whisper of desire and Julio leaned into him and sighed deliciously, satisfied and just slightly aroused by his touch.(m/m) Dollmaker Prt.33 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
He soon fell asleep and David followed him gratefully, burying his face in Julio's hair and breathing him in. He had fantasized about this, he had so longed for this, but the reality was more than his imagination could have conjured, complete with the har

When I turned my attention from the tv to my mother, I met her eyes.
''I still have school tomorrow, y'know?'' I answered, trying not to sound tired. ''But it's been quite normal, I guess. Well.. Except..''
''There's this transfer student in our school, she's in my class. In fact, I'm sitting next to her, but she's the quiet type..'' I began my little story, which seemed to interest my mother a lot. ''For the entire week I tried to talk to her, but she would just tell me to pay attention in class or something.'' I mumbled the last part, because I knew my mom would tell me off about this. This time, she didn't.
''But today you succeeded?'' she asked instead.
I was a little surprised that she had guessed it right. But then again, it was my mother. She would probably have known I told her this because I finally had talked to Tsukishima Ayame for the first time.
''Yeah..'' I responded.
''And?'' she asked again. I
Pink, Ch. 3It's midnight. I feel so tired. Like I haven't slept in years.

My eyes are shut, and my bed is warm. My plush, purple nightgown is the final piece that makes where I am right now one of the most comfortable places in the world. But I...still...can't...sleep. I put my face in my pillow and make a sound somewhere between a groan and a yawn. Then, I flip over to stare at the ceiling...No good. Maybe if I stare at the wall next to my bed...Nope.
There's a noise behind me. My door creeks open. Who could be coming into my room at such an hour? The door clicks shut again, but I'm no longer alone in my room. The soft sound of socked feet on hardwood confirms that. Part of me wants to turn to see who's come in here, the other is scared that might agitate whoever it is. If this person has anything against me, spotting th

"We should call it a day," he suggested, realising only then, how dark and chilly it's gotten inside the mill. He wondered how Kotris could even work, when he had serious trouble recognizing anything more distant than his hand.
"Wow, it got dark really fast," replied Kotris in agreement. "Heh, don't we have a candle or something? Because I can't see a thing right now."
"I don't think we have. C'mon, it's not that dark yet," said Sabien.
Kotris tried to walk in a direction of the door but something was in his way and he nearly fell over it. "Damn!" He hissed.

I returned home from a long and literally painful day of school. Mother and Father were not home but I know that the school will call them anytime now while they're working. I sighed and took a seat on the couch, quietly reading a difficult book from Literature class. I suddenly heard soft footsteps coming from upstairs. I stood and spun around looking intently in the direction of the noise. To my surprise it was Nina, who looked a bit drowsy.
"Kimura?.." she said softly, rubbing her eye.
"oh..hey.." I replied a bit awkwardly since I felt that I said harsh yet truthful words to her last night. I then asked, "how are you home before me?.."
"Mother dropped me off after she took me to the doctors'," she replied.
I forgot that she had check-up today because of my suspicions about her, so I just gave a nod.
"H-how was school?" she asked in a pathetic tone but it was that pathetic tone that I use to know whenever she was nervous about a Physical Education test.

"I had a really great time tonight, Quinn," Rachel said, pushing her silky brown hair behind her ear in a bashful way.
Quinn smiled her melted-honey smile that made Rachel's legs feel like the vegan jello her dads loved to make. "I was hoping you would say that."
Rachel grinned shyly in response, and gave a small, startled gasp when Quinn took her hand and led her across the parking lot to her cute cherry red car. Rachel's whole hand tingled where Quinn's baby-soft skin met hers. The streetlights glowed yellow on the asphalt. It must have rained while they were in the restaurant (it was a really nice restaurant, too; it had taken them a thirty minute drive outside of Lima to actually reach genuine five-star dining, and Rachel had to admit she was touched that Quinn didn't consider Breadstix to be an appropriate setting for their first date).
Quinn, apparently, noticed the glowing

"Able," I sighed in exasperation, "please don't."
"Happy birthday dear Iaaaaaan," he sang loudly, wrapping his arms around my waist as he came up behind me.
"You're so annoying," I grumbled, resuming scrubbing the plate in my hands. "Did you only come over to remind me that I'm almost obscenely old now?"
"You're not that old," he said softly, resting his head on my shoulder. "And it's only part of the reason that I came."
"What's the other part then?" I asked, sighing and setting the dish in the other sink after carefully skimming my fingertips over its surface to confirm that it was clean.
"Well I wanted to give you your present too," he said as I wiped my hands off on a towel.
"What presents are you talking about?" I asked, smiling lightly at the thought as he nuzzled against my neck. "You didn't need to get me anything."
"Oh don't worry," he said, "I didn't."
"Then what the hell are you talking about?" I asked, feeling him pull me
Don't Let Him"No....." I cried into the older mans shirt; soaking it with my tears. I felt his hand gently stroke the white hair that adorned my head as I continued to cry. I normally didn't cry on such occasions, but today was the biggest exception. I would cry only because it was a sad day the day that my father had lost his life. It would have been sad any way that he had died, but this was even worse than what it should have been. We were all taken unaware.Don't Let Him3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
He didn't die from old age, nor did he die from the cancer that had been eating away at his bones for close to a year now. He had died because someone hit him. Someone hit him with their car, and they didn't even stop. If it would have been cancer I would have had more time with him, but it hadn't been that. The hit-and-run was what took his life so suddenly.
He was the only person I would let myself cry over. I wouldn't even let me cry for myself.

Lightning's voice sounded low yet firm as she went on, leading the group through a canyon where they just had filled up their water resources. This place how did Fang call it? Vallis Middia? The soldier had never seen anything like this before, not in her entire life. With sharpened senses and a collected trot, she watched her environment closely; not only did she take care of anything that would startle her instincts, she also used this occasion to adore bold cliffs, water that rushed down ancient rocks with an enormous roar that covered everything in reach with a fine spray of fog. The air was cool and moist, a real pleasure compared to the dry and burning heat they had to deal with in the past days.
The pink haired woman had to admit, some things changed inside her mind as they passed the nearly endless plains, entering the gulch. No matter how small and impassable it had appeared fro

"You just did, but you can always ask another." I replied in a serious manner; one in which broke when Jon our cousin that shared my age snorted slightly. He was leaning against one of the far walls, and he gave me a smirk. His once light brown hair had turned such a dark shade that it was almost black, but it was still noticeably brown.
"What are Mudbloods?" Alan asked; completely ignoring my somewhat teasing tone. I closed my book slowly before looking at him once again. He did look curious on the matter, but the question had Jon and Ashlyn our a younger sister; a year younger than Alan turning their heads towards us. Jon looked about as surprised as I felt while the younger girl l

During the early stages of planning, the Company, which had been founded by several students from the University of Pennsylvania and Princeton in Northeastern America, decided that the best place for us to sustain life would be in Southern Saudi Arabia. With racial warfare virtually forgotten, it would be the best place for fresh water, sunlight, free game, and access to the ocean.
We had three main buildings; the first was the biggest, and faced North; this was our library, laboratory, storage facility and infirmary. It housed our vast collections of books, data and samples, and was where the Company's top scientists (myself included) met to compare theories, organize information, and study new things. It was

Unlike Ritsu, Mio was happy about the choice of place. They would be going to a museum about the history of their own country. To any other kid it would sound extremely boring, but not to Mio.

I cracked an eye open, just enough to see through the dark and look down at the something that had made itself at home right against me in the way that only one person ever had. His head was resting on my arm, a hand finding mine as he wove his fingers with my own and pressed his back flush against my front, fitting even the curve of his bent legs along with mine.

Aries had been suffering from PTSD for a while now, but she never let any of the others on it. Especially not Loki; she knew how much he wanted to keep protecting her, but she knew that telling him of these problems would only add onto his many worries. He didn't deserve that. After all, she couldn't depend on him forever. But...at the same time, she didn't know if she could deal with this on her own.
The reason for Aries' PTSD was because of her former owner, Karen. The deceased mage had Aries under her thumb for several years, and hardly a day went by in her care without the lamb girl suffering in some way, whether it be physically or verbally. Aside from the usual whippings and beatings, Karen had also dominated Aries sexually. She only did this when there wasn't a man available to sleep with. It wasn't any surprise that Karen was a woman who enjoyed using violence for sexual gratification. But only when she was performing said violence on someone else. She nearly died

There are no words to describe it. No way to convey such an emotion in a physical, tangible form such as language. Even now, as I lay awake in my bed and stare at the ceiling with my violet tresses of hair obscuring my vision, I cannot describe the fluttering feeling that courses through my being. It was that girl. The one I met yesterday while picking strawberries. It was that girl that caused these emotions in me.
It is dawn. I have been awake for what feels like eternity, though I know it's probably only been about an hour or so. My dreams were of her. My thoughts now are of her. I feel sick; however it's not the same kind of sick as those days I stayed home from classes. It's a feeling that I am missing something, and I cannot be well until I have that one thing.
