A Tale of FearA Tale of Fear2 years ago in Emotional More Like This
Halloween is coming up.
I always loved Halloween, and not just because I was born around that time of year.
I always loved it because it's the one time of year where most people are willing to face their fears, to stop looking away from the darkness in which lies their own distorted reflection, locked away deep within their subconscious
During that one time of year, people get to see what I see.
I was about 6 years old when I first experienced the agony of true horror.
I only have very vague memories of my childhood, but everything about that night remained in my mind, clear as crystal.
Sure I had been scared before. We all have, it's part of being a child. Fear is a plant that grows deep within the holes of our knowledge, filling the voids until one day the light comes shinning. Until then, we are bound to be scared of the things we don't understand, children and adults alike. But children live in a world filled with the unknown, where the roots of fear have plenty of room to spread.

"[Name], we appear to be floating a few feet above your couch," Loki said, tone confused.
You looked down. You were indeed floating just above the couch.
"Ack!" you cried.
You both suddenly dropped back onto the couch. The jarring motion caused a pang in your head.
"The hell was that?" you asked rhetorically.
Loki shrugged. The two of you sat up and focused on the TV. You still laid your head on his shoulder, and his arm was wrapped around your waist. You couldn't quite hear the TV, so you were about to reach for the remote. Before your hand got to it, though, you heard the volume getting louder. You looked up at the screen. The volume was definitely going up. Your eyes got wide. However, you noticed the pain in your skull beginning to le

You walked into Loki's room, fully rested for the first time in a month. Your time working to pay Odin back was up, and construction was complete. You stood next to Loki, amazed at what the workers had accomplished. What was once Loki's bedroom had been turned into a living room, with a large sectional sofa and an even bigger fireplace. There were a few bookshelves pressed against the walls on either side of the large window. You walked past the living room into a short hallway, holding Loki's hand.
On the other side of the hall was a huge, fully-stocked kitchen. Past the counters was a small dining table with a candelabrum, sitting pretty in front of a smaller fireplace than the one in the last room. Leading out of the kitchen were a few more short hallways. You followed the one to the left, past the stove. It led to a set of French doors that opened to a gorgeous terrace

"I zhought I told you to come down to dinner?!" he shouted.
"I'm not hungry." you say through the door. He couldn't believe it. Someone disregarded something he said and disobeyed him. He was furious.
"You come out or I'll, I'll- I'll break down zhe door!" he shouted in response, not quite sure how to respond to being disobeyed.
"Um, pardon me Master." Francis said, making sure he chose his next words very carefully. "I could be wrong but that might not be the best way to win the girl's affection."

The air was brisk cold and you were heading home slowly. You thought I'd be better off savoring these last moments of peace. At home, you only lived up to people's screaming and sadness filling the air. You sighed at the pity of it. Wondering if this will ever end, you stopped to look to your left. You saw the reflection of the house lights across the river glow. It was the most beautiful sight ever. You look up and tried to find a star in the sky. Again, you found none. You sighed and continued walking, ''if only there were a way I can get over there . Then there would be peace ''
You lived in a small house and had no other choice but to stay with your Aunt. After moving out of your hometown, you had no where else to go but here. All your life as a kid, you dreamed of traveling over the world and venturing to distant lands

You both get dressed, and head down to the dining room. Only Canada is there, and he flashes a weak smile at you.
You get some food and sit down opposite him, Hungary next to you. Half way through you meal, though, the rest of the countries walk in, freeze seeing you two, and immediately gather around you.

I dreamed a dream~ Chapter 4
I couldn't believe that tonight the show would open. None of this even seemed real. Just over a month ago I was making minimum wage, getting over a heroin addiction, and no one knew my name. A month ago, I was unimportant, a nobody. Now my face is plastered around town on billboards, newspapers, commercials. Everywhere you go, there I am. Everyone knows my name now.
Somehow even with all of this going on, I couldn't help but feel a deep pain within myself. This was my dream, right? I should be happy! I should be, but for some reason I couldn't feel that way. Looking down to my arm and seeing the needle marks I couldn't help but feel like my dream had come just a little too late. Sure, this had been everything I wanted back then, but I was worn out now. I felt like an old racehorse that just didn't have any fight left in her anymore.
Singing had given me a chance to 'live' again, and when I was singing I did feel more alive than I had in years. But

Introducing Ludwig in this chapter!
You groggily opened your eyes when you heard a faint noise. Wondering what it was, you propped yourself up and opened your window to listen closer. What you heard though, made your blood freeze. Sounds of hollering hooves and shouting men could be heard. You didn't have that many horses in the village, you realized. Quickly you straightened your clothes and run outside, ignoring the surprised look on your mothers face when you passed her. You came to an abrupt halt when you noticed the villagers standing around in front of their houses, curiously peeking at the rich-ornamented horses and well-built men sitting on them. Straining your ears, you caught a few words of the whispering villagers.
"Pshh.. did you hear? The Huns were defeated.. but.. why.. back? .. Again?," a few old ladies whispered. What were they talking about? The Huns were defeated in the last big war!

"No," he replied, smiling at you.
You drummed your fingers on the kitchen table as Loki gobbled up the pasta dish you made for lunch. You weren't as hungry as you thought you were.
"You know, this arrangement hardly seems fair," you said.
"To what arrangement are you referring?" Loki asked.
"The one where you know so much about me and I know next to nothing about you."
"Well, what do you want to know, [name]?"
"Why you're here. Why you're hell-bent on taking over the world. Like I've said twenty times."
"And, as I've said numerous times, I won't tell you just yet."
You made some sort of sound between a groan and the call of a howler monkey. Loki chuckled.

He was about to pat you on the shoulder, but you backed up.
