Lonely to Lovely Chapter 2 A week has passed since the midterm results. I've gotten to know Akio a lot better, but it doesn't mean that I trust him enough to actually be called "friends". Though I tend to keep my distance from others, I don't exactly hate him. Ever since we became friends, many people have their opinions about our relationship..Lonely to Lovely Chapter 21 year ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
"Kuri-chan!" Akio hollared as he ran down the hall. "Be careful or you'll fall-" I began to say. And to no surprise he fell. "I tried to tell you. But you never listen," I chuckled. "Don't laugh at me!" he screamed as he blushed. I held my hand out for him to grab. "Come on," I giggled," I'll help you up." Just as he reached for my hand, some girls walked over to me. One of them slapped me as hard as she could as she said," Do you really think that we'll let you touch his hand? As if. Losers and loners need to stay in their place. This means you, too!" I was speechless. What do I say?
It's a misunderstanding? I don't even want to be his friend? I can't say anything
Lonely to Lovely Chapter 1I don't understand this world. The people always betray you, and you're always hurt. I'm Mikusu Kurisuten. I'm you're average 16 year old girl. There's only one problem: I never let anyone get close to me. Girls in my class always chat and giggle as if they'll be happy forever. They all walk up to me and ask if I'd like to hang out, but I brush them off and walk away.Lonely to Lovely Chapter 11 year ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
"What's wrong with you?" That's the question everyone asks me. When I was 5, I had many friends who would come to hang out with me. At the time, I hadn't thought that they just liked me for money. I thought they were actual friends. But the day my dad went bankrupt and left me with my cousins, well, that was the day I had no more "friends".
I will never allow anyone to get close to me. In the end, I'll just be hurt.
"Kuri-chan! You're alarm's been going off for five minutes! Can you turn it off and get up for school already?" Natsu asked. "But why? It'll just be another miserable day for me. Just tell Auntie that I'm

With my chances completely gone!
To you my feelings I cannot express,
I haven’t had a single chance to confess.
I’m trying to reach you every day!
There is so much for me to say!
Alas, I don’t have any might,
I’m like a shadow in a dark night.
You’re like a novel, I’m just a dot,
Which is why you see me not.
“Why?” is the question I want to ask,
Of course it is an impossible task!
Luck is deceiving,
Love is deceiving,
Life is deceiving,
Still, to you all my love I’m giving.
Two different worlds cannot collide,
Though I’m not giving up without a fight!
My poems are endless, my will is strong,
My love for you is forever long.

"Kaai-san!" Akihiko screamed. I turned around with an emotionless face as I said," What is it, Akihiko?" He grabbed my wrist and dragged me into the nearest classroom he could find. It was quiet and empty inside, and as he let go of me, I realized he was plotting something by the expression on his face.
"I've talked with the chairman you know.. About that fellow who helped you at the hot spring.. It IS easy for me to expel him, you know..," he said.
How could I have forgotten..? Akihiko comes from a well-known family. They're a huge company in the manufacturing industry. His parents have donated millions to each school he's attended- which he told me when we dated. He could easily get something from me if he wanted it.. And no
The Magical Warriors Chapter 2: InfiltrationWhen the rescue party returned with Aquarius, he was immediately ushered into the healing rooms. Now all they could do was wait and see if they had arrived in time He’d been badly injured and weak. Word slowly reached the rest of the Warriors and they began to trickle into the common room. Most everyone was in their humanoid forms, with the exception of Iris, who was weaving around in her ferret form and pestering random Warriors in an attempt to lighten the mood and shift everyone‘s minds away from the state their leader was in. Most just either ignored her or brushed her away. Until she jumped into Sena’s hair. The Shadow Hunter jumped up and gave chase.The Magical Warriors Chapter 2: Infiltration9 months ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
“You little twerp!” Iris took off and soon the entire common room was in an uproar. The chaos is what Guinevive and Leo walked into, the last of the Warriors to join the others in the common room.

When he wasn't, I gently knocked on his door and let myself in. I heard a tap tap noise as I shut the door behind me. Kaai Nee-chan! Ritsu-chan whispered. I smiled at her and gave her a hug. I looked around to find her apartment really quiet.
Wheres Fugita-kun? I asked.
She grabbed my hand and led me to the room that I once slept in. I looked in and saw Fugita-kun, lying on the ground, still asleep in his futon. As I walked towards him, he moaned and rolled over. Fugita-kun... I whispered. When he didnt wake up, I poked his face a little bit. Ritsu-chan and I had tears in our eyes, trying not to laugh at the faces he had made.
I poked his cheek, and he grabbed my hand. I was shocked by the instant response, but even more shocked when I fell on top of him.

Tall pine trees glisten with ice as they sway with the wind
And hushed majestic animals silently move through the frozen brush
Everything like a flawless painting that is made once in a lifetime
Where the scenery makes an un-explainable enjoyment
And a adoring grin appears on one's soft heart'd lips
Then songs of unspoken lyrics are sung by the assortment of fonding birds
That matches the peaceful cry's of the wind
Trying to tell its story of its ling sensible life
But the soft rays of light warms the bare skin
And plush clouds shade one's self with cool gusts of air
And the sun and clouds merge as one to create a elegant image
Only to have a water meadow captivate one's vision
Where beautiful flowers grow and cherish its land
Giving off the most delectable smell of jasmine
Such beauty and wonder brings jubilant happiness
Happiness that enters the soul in the most magnificent way
And can never be mimicked or relinqui

As he always has
Because he sees past the me
Past the she
That lies in solid ink
And writes letters to herself
Trying to convince him
Of her innocence
To slow rumors
Of her discontent
With the city
A framework etched
In jet-black lines of brick and steel
By her fathers
And their sons
Not meant for weeping daughters
To come about
And run into the ground
With dreams not penned in mortar
Ones of water
A tide that
Rips the base-work up
And sweeps it
Out to sea
Along with all the other
Dreamt not by me or she
But by he who knows me best
The Magical Warriors Chapter 1: The Warriors' RiseSince the dawning of time, the world has needed heroes. The people were suppressed by monsters whose only desire was to kill and destroy. Led by the lizard like Gorgon, the monsters brought death and destruction to all they cam across. The people cried out for someone, anyone to save them. But no one had both the bravery and the skill to survive an encounter with any of the monsters. Anyone who was brave enough to stand against them fell, dying horrible and painful deaths. Until Aquarius arose. Imbued with powerful magic of Water, Fire and Earth, he defeated the lesser monsters easily. But he knew he could not keep fighting alone. And he could not hope to face the more powerful monsters and survive, despite his skill with the sword and shield and magic. Thus he searched the lands and recruited anyone with the smallest hint of magic. Aquarius’ warriors became known as the Magical Warriors, as each one could control the elements. Each Warrior was trained in their element, the moreThe Magical Warriors Chapter 1: The Warriors' Rise10 months ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

It hasn’t come yet. I feel like it has abandoned me, but that’s not the case. Perhaps Light is waiting. Waiting to see if I will tough it out, to see if I am faithful and patient.

"Yes, how did you know I went?" I asked.
"Why do you want to know, I'm just a dream." He said.
"I guess you're right." I realized.
"Of course I'm right I'm always right." He said.

"Yes always." He joked.
"Sure, Ensan." I laughed.

"Arianna, get up your going to hurt your back laying on the couch." I heard my father say.
"Mkay." I muttered getting up and going to my bedroom as my dad left for his first job. When I got to my room I collapsed on my bed and then tried to go back to sleep without much success, after a while of just lying there I got up and picked up Harry Potter. By the time Harry arrived at Hogwarts the sun had raised and I could hear Amos stirring. I could go make breakfast for him or I could continue reading about Harry's first year at Hogwarts. I chose Harry Potter over Amos.
When the thought of having to hold his breath for two hours dawned upon Harry the sun was at its highest point and I was still in my p.j.s. The thought of changing into actual clothes and brushing my hair dawned upon my mind, but I just laughed at it.
What was that? Must be my imagination.

Jet and I stood on the flight of stairs and looked down. The others were already almost all the way down. Peh, stairs are for those who cant fly. Jet said smiling at me. My only answer was to spread my wings and jump up on the left hand rail. Jet did the same jumping to the right. Without a word we jumped into the air and dove, flying together spiraling around the stairs together, going above it, crossing to the other side gong under it to cross over and come up again. Showoffs. I heard Oracle say. Oh let them have their fun. Liz said and I could picture her smiling as Jet and I landed at the end of the stairs and waited for them to join us.
So where too? Ace asked once we were all together. Back this way, by the way everyone here is good at swimming right? Liz asked more casually than I thought possible. Yeah why? I asked a little unsure at this point.

Secret PlaceI have a secret place, a place where no one but I can go. It's hidden away, between my ears, safe and sound from the horrors of the real world. I use it to escape, to shield my inner child. It's a place where the grass is always a lush spring green and the hills roll. The trees are stocky with warm, red leafs and rich brown bark. There's a small creak running through the meadow, always babbling sweet melodies to the assortment of beautiful wild flowers. The wind is soft and whispers secrets to me as it brushes past. The sun is bright during the days and sends warm streams of golden light down on me as I run, hop, skip, and play. During the night the creak and the crickets sing a duet, lulling me to sleep by the gentle moonlight. There's a windmill overlooking the meadow; it's old and has some sort of crystal white plantation growing around the base and up its sides.Secret Place11 months ago in Short Stories More Like This

It's been a while since I was in Tokyo last. Three years have passed since I moved to Hokkaido, yet I can't forget the one terrible thing that happened before Mom was transferred here. Why?
I'm Himuwari Kaai, and I'm just basic I guess. I'm a second year in high school, and even confessed to he person I loved. Yet, it wasn't going to turn out like I had thought. I was young, stupid, and probably more foolish than anyone.

"Nuh uh." The youngest of my sisters, Anaya muttered just faint enough to hear. Her eyes were drooping and she struggled to keep them open. Anaya was about two suns old, while I had just turned 14.

The problem with Turquoise Isle, you see, was that it had trouble living up to its name. It didn't exceed the expectations any photos, brochures or pamphlets liked to boast, either. Where were the sparkling seas? the tourists liked to ask. The sparkle on the water? The sun upon the sand? Turquoise, in these unfortunate Summer months, had been anything but turquoise at all. Navy, black and grey described it best – the clouds hung horrid and heavy in the sky, looming down upon the island and all its pretty little markets and bistros, grumbling as they waited for just the right moment to pelt the place with a squall. The locals, grumbling in their homes, were sure of it.
The problem with Turquoise Isle, you see, was that the locals were right to be sure ...These months were something fierce, and Summer brought storms in their dozens, enough to make Winter seem a green and pleasant season. Green with envy, perhaps.
