He considered it very carfully. Seriously weighing its meaning in his young mind. We sat there on the bench together in silence as the rest of the world went about its business. A short moment passed for me, a long child's moment passed for him. Finally, he looked up, and with the gravity of a judge of human kind he gave his answer.
"Love is a hug," he said simply.
I smiled, and hugged him tightly to me. An Angel could have not given me a better answer.

my skin is bare, soft against yours.
i've never let anybody else hold me quite like this.
never let anybody hold my heart with quite this grip
and maybe it's in the way your breathing hitches
just south of dreamland
or maybe in the way
your ankles are twined with mine
and the air feels warmer closest to you
i get goosebumps from the thought
of the letters that spell "forever"
for once, i'm pretty sure i'm not scared
because if "forever" means a yard and a dog
four cars, two jobs, three rats
and a warm bed at night
then i'll lace my fingers into your palm
and jump without closing my eyes

Of the city in the sky.
Fate had mete out,
A young girl who had proved her worth,
To become a great Paladin one day.
And in a land far away,
In a nation not his own,
Battled a tested Warrior of rank,
Fought against nations of power and doom,
At the Lord Marshal's command,
For their relics were unbound.
And the young Paladin watched,
The raid parties come and go,
Hoping one day she could call one her own.
In the land of Lakia,
Of the city in the sky.
The young Paladin closed her eyes,
Many monsters had fallen to her blade,
In the harsh wind-bit lands of Amarkand,
The strongest of Club Dread,
Who beat her again and again,
Would not fall.
A tear stung her eye,
As she turned to her guild and cried,
"Help me please! Assistance I need,
Forgive my weakness I beg you please.
Change must be had and I am not strong enough to bring it alone,
The dread ones must fall!"
"They can fall another day youngling,

Athenya-Daughter of FulgrimAthenya Tyeuthe pushed herself through the drill again, again and yet again. Each time failing to dodge or at the least parry the final attack delivered by the training cage and was knocked to the floor a new bruise blossoming somewhere on her body. Despite her failure she savored the drilling, it was the only time where thinking about the events taking place to her Father and Legion was not required. Finally, Athenya parried the final attack and disabled the cage. She put the huge axe she had been drilling with to the side and took up her two handed sword, her favorite weapon. A gift from her Father long ago when she had first completed her training.Athenya-Daughter of Fulgrim3 years ago in Sci-Fi More Like This

Every night I pick a star in the sky
and persistently follow the path
that leads to it.
But soon I realize:
the star that once lit the way
is now dead,
and has been so for eons...
Tonight I shall choose a new direction,
one with no light
and I will navigate on it,
and witness the birth and death of galaxies
as I go by...
But I won't stop,
I will go on
Oh, Darkness, I...

He was not a psyker.
He had been taken by the Enforcers more than once for testing when they performed their irregular sweeps, or when word of his "talents" had reached them and they checked for latent emergence. But they had found him to be well within acceptable limits, lacking any obvious psychic taint.
This had not noticeably interfered with his income. In fact, if anything, it had built upon his reputation. No one could be seen to be visiting an unlicensed psyker, after all. But one could visit someone officially sanctioned as definitely not a psyker... and whisper behind one's hand that his powers were clearly so great that he could deceive even the penetrating talents of the Emperor's Witch Finders!
He sat in the gloom of his "consulting room" and drummed his fingers impatiently on the table. He was expecting a client and it helped the atmosphere for them to find him deep in meditation in the dark room, its rich furnishings

Bear . Wolf, eagle. Always these beasts could turn the hunter into prey. Hurron knew this, it was a knowledge his father taught him well on his first bleeding of the snow.
Up in the cold you keep these three rulers in mind at all times, especially at the winters end, for wolf is still rabid with winters hunger. Bear awakens from its slumber sharing the same thought as the wolf, and northern eagles, they are always a threat. In time, they learned to wound their prey and watch it bleed to death. Yes, three ruled the mountains, but on the day of bleeding of the snow, they were all prey
Hurron pretended to be sleeping, while he watched his son standing guard by the fire. Boy has grown strong, stronger than the old wives of the village have foreseen. However, that was not surprising. Hurron never looked kindly on the self-proclaimed prophets. Fate is what one makes of it, and his

The Fall of ThessiaCommander Shepard approached Liara's office and stopped short of the door sensors. She drew in a deep breath, closed her eyes and exhaled slowly. She could hear the sobs out here. Each one was breaking her heart. Shepard took another step forward and the office door opened. A wave of relief passed over her, she had been worried that door would be locked. Shepard had expected Glyph to greet her when she entered but the little information drone just hovered in the corner. Maybe Liara had put it in stand-by or perhaps it understood its master was in no mood to deal with it.The Fall of Thessia3 years ago in Settings More Like This

The musclebound gentleman stared through his sunglasses. “That is improbable.”
“Because you look kind of familiar. Aren’t you the Governor of somewhere?”
“This is not a productive area of discussion. Are you Sally Connal?”
To Sally’s surprise, the man slowly drew a large handgun from his coat pocket. To her even greater surprise, a motorcycle crashed through the café window next to her, knocking him through a similar window on the opposite side of the building. The rider of the motorcycle did a tight lap of the room, brought the vehicle to a dramatic halt and stretched out an arm.
“Come with me if you want to live!”
Sally glanced over at the first guy who had spoken to her. He was already standing, the glass under his feet crunching dramatically, as it would under the feet of an implacable bad guy in an action movie.

Confession I: VehnasConfession I: Vehnas3 years ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
So you want to know why do I hesitate in taking something I seem to crave so much.
The question is: what makes you think you know what it is that I crave? Because really, I can't figure out how you're supposed to have even the faintest idea.
Do you really think that my biggest, unfulfilled desire is to take her virtue? Do I look so shallow and trivial to you?
If I really wanted to violate her, I could have done it so many time since I first had the chance to lay my hands on her...
But again, why should I brutally take something that already belongs to me? Why should I deliberately spoil my own possession?
Let me clarify this, once for all:
She is mine.
Her beauty is mine.
Every breath she takes is mine.
Her pride and her contempt are mine.
Everything that belongs to her is mine.
All she cares about is mine.
And so is her virtue.
I don't need to rip it off to prove that I own her, and I'm not going to take her against her will just because I can.
She cherishes her chastity, and so do I.

"Oh God, please stop this," she said in a whisper. Mias' death would mean she'd be trapped in this world for the rest of her life.

"The title of head of the family is mine Mathias!" Elias declared as he raised his dagger.
Mias glared at him, refusing to bow his head in acceptance to this fate. He refused to be murdered in such an ugly manner. But what could he do?

"My personal interest, since I've been aware enough to notice, is this: Why has magic developed differently in some places than others? How are these methods of use similar? How do these methods differ? Presumably, all magic comes from the same source, correct?" The professor, who had been pacing along the stage, suddenly stopped. Turning to the class, he stared intently at his audience, his golden ornaments glinting in the torchlight and adding an eerie affect in contrast to the purple luminescence in his eyes.

You were outside today, in the almost one-hundred degree heat doing work for your parents, as they had better things to do...meaning they wanted to stay inside and watch T.V. all day.
You were in charge of most things chore related around the house. Even at age seventeen, your parents still treated you like a ten year old slave, making you do everything for them, and when you refused or had done your chore wrong, you were beaten.
In fact, you had to wear jackets and pants to cover up bruises and scars your parents had given you. Though the ones on your face were just there for you to lie about, and let people think you were clumsy and fell all the time, causing your eye to be black, or your jaw to be bruised.
