A change is as good a vacationJack Ryder was a television reporter, and he liked to think he was a good one. Considering his gross earnings he didnt think he was too far off in his opinion. If you asked anyone else most would probably agree. His journalistic integrity (which most critics would consider an oxymoron) was intact. He always reported the facts as he knew them, tried to present both sides of an argument where possible and never made up facts just for a story. If some people considered him arrogant, that was expected when you got good enough, and if he was somewhat of a workaholic, well, thats what you need to be to get anywhere in this day and age.A change is as good a vacation7 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This

He had been resting on a branch, and now he stood on the same branch to try to see what was coming. He had a pretty good idea, though. Whatever it was walked on two legs. Not many things in the jungle walked on two legs. It basically boiled down to the man himself, the woman asleep higher in the tree in a hidden nook, and the intruders.
They were back.
The man leapt to a higher branch, which he caught in his hands, swinging his body up until he was crouching on the branch. He leapt to a branch above and another. He kept heading up until he was at the highest branch in the tree. He moved into a standing position and looked in the direction he had heard the noise.
He could see the men, moving in single file through the tall grass. They hadn't yet reached the edge of the jungle itself. They were about forty-five minutes from the man's presen

I beg You, to be the One, to help me through
I ask of You what no other will,
I pray, let me be the one to lead them back to You

It was a bright sunny day in Odaiba, Japan with the birds signing their chipper songs and the leaves on the trees are gently moved by the cool wind. This beautiful day has certainly gotten the attention Lori Izunami one of the High School students in The Odaiba Academy.

Our story begins on a rooftop in New York City. A young teen crouched near the ledge looking down to the streets below. Watery eyes and an angered look in his eyes.
[I’m Peter Parker, well normally I am, but right now…I’m someone else. Someone that never in my wildest dreams I could imagine myself being. I’m Spider-Man. A hero. Well, maybe I haven’t earned that title yet, maybe I never will. I’m hell bent on revenge right now, taking up this disguise to keep myself, family and friends safe as I try to find a killer. My Uncles killer.]
Peter wipes his eyes with his arm and moves position to a different corner of the rooftop. Dressed in an odd outfit, homemade. A specialized zip up jacket with a full face covering fabric mask attached to the hood. White one way seeing goggles around his neck. And a black spider symbol on the front of his jacket.

"Yugi! You woke up early!"
"Yeah. I couldn't sleep and "
He stopped in the mid-sentence when he noticed Yami's dark expression. Something was wrong with him. He then saw that Yami's shirt was stretched out and was hanging loose onto him.
"Yami why your shirt is "
"Go back to sleep, Yugi! It's too early for you!" Yami said a little bit sharply while taking his shirt off and throwing it to the floor.
He then took a towel and headed to the bathroom.
"Yami " Yugi murmured.
Yami turned the shower on and stood below it. As the hot water was running all over his body he sighed and close his eyes leaving the water to wash away all worries and awful memories. But unfortunately not even that was working

Outside the sky was full of black clouds and sometimes a lightning was tearing the sky but he didn’t care. His fingers were moving nervously on the keyboard. His stare was blank in his icy-blue eyes and while sometimes he seemed being in tension, some others he seemed not to communicate with reality. A breath of cold wind waved his hair once.Vampire Yami Ch 373 years ago in Horror More Like This

“Kaiba you don’t need to pretend. I know that you know.” Yami said, who got in by the window and walked in front of him.

“I know you know who I am, that I am a vampire, that you know Bakura. I saw you last night. I know you have been watching me, Kaiba and I know Bakura is blackmailing you keeping Mokuba hostage.”

"Oh! You're here. Can you, please, sweep the floor? The broom is next to the door"
"Got it!" he replied.
He took the broom and started sweeping the floor humming a tune. Grandpa and grandson remained with their mouths wide open! Yami didn't even notice them. He kept humming happily like being in his own world!
"You're too happy I see " Yugi said turning back to his task, "What happened?"
Yami didn't answer but he kept on humming instead.

Vampire Yami Ch 35Yami was standing by a large window and was looking outside without having something specific in mind. To tell the truth he had so much in his mind that he didn't know what to think first, like the Fallen ones' behavior for example. He still couldn't take it out of his mind that someone could be controlling them. Then he remembered Mokuba. That beaten up little body that didn't have the strength even to shiver inside his dark, wet cell. He turned his face inside, towards the walls with the hieroglyphics. He was feeling something. It was as if they were calling him… "Come". Like hypnotized he responded. He touched the wall with his palm. Then, like a cinematographic movie, another image passed before his eyes. It was so strange and at the same time so familiar! It was that child that looked like him. This time it was a bit younger, around seven years old, and it was running inside the garden laughing and yelling happily.Vampire Yami Ch 353 years ago in Horror More Like This

No one would distract him from his mission! Not even her
He got in by the vent. He jumped in the skyscraper's internal. The place seemed empty. Then why was he feeling Bakura's smell that strongly? He decided to check it out. The smell leaded him to a door that most probably leaded to the basement. He was shocked when he saw tha
