Believe me mommy...Mommy, dear,
to my heart, you are SO near.
Even through all the aweful things,
the new boyfriends and one night flings.
The drinking, the sniffing,
the huffing the blowing.
I still love you mommy.
I wiped away the tears when your bruises showed,
held your hand and wiped the snow from under your nose.
I never did cry while you were, never wanted to steal the show.
But I hugged you and my heart sobbed with.
Oh I still love you,
even through all that...
still love you even when you almost killed us.
A car can cause an aweful amount of damage.
You don't remember...the alcohol blurred away all of that.
How funny...when I think about it...
You thought we were dead.
I still love you mommy, even though you discount me.
I still love you,
but i wish you believed me.
He touched me you know.
The man who's known me since fifth grade.
The man you had me call "dad."
He was not my own. I did not want to call him that.
But because I loved you, I did.
He asked to have sex with me you know.
The same man

The World's Greatest ActorThe World’s Greatest Actor, now a father, prepared lunch for his three children. Humming to himself happily, he slathered pieces of bread with peanut butter and jelly. He put them each into individual plastic containers, then the containers into brightly coloured cloth bags along with plums and juice boxes. He wanted to make sure they ate healthy but enjoyed what they ate. He was rewarded with their smiles when his three children came running in. An elder girl in grade two, followed by a twin boy and girl who were in kindergarten, greeted him. He said good morning and picked them all up in a bear hug, kissing them each on the forehead. They laughed and ran to eat their breakfasts, cereal which he had poured for them. When they were done, he followed them up the stairs to make sure each one of them brushed their teeth, washed their hands, and picked up their school bags. He watched them shove their carefully packed lunches into their bags and run out the front door. He stood withThe World's Greatest Actor2 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

The only thing you can do is try
All 23 will be against you,
but they feel that way too
The crowd can help in deciding your fate
If you are either valuable or dead weight
Your mentor will train you
Unless it's Haymitch, then they'll say "Forget you"
You shall be treated like king or queen
Your life will feel serene
Until the final day comes
Then the dread will pound like drums
As you stand on your podium
You hope you will blossom
Because death is soon
And the audience will watch as if it is a cartoon
You will run for your life
With the wildlife
Some will make it and some will perish
Chances are in anguish
When all are dead and gone
The last one will become a victor
But only one victor shall rise
All with the are their supplies
They shall meet and greet
Because they did defeat
And train all others
Until they are elders
The games will come back once more this year
Hoping their district will have a good year.
And the only words anyone can repeat
may the odds b

“I really agree with you,” said Jack, “but we’ll have to get back at base afterwards.”
Kerra nodded in agreement, “Yeah! I reek like a spoiled tunafish sandwich that’s been sitting in a kitchen for who-knows how long.”
Jack and Arcee chuckled.
After they’ve arrived back home Kerra went to the shower and changed into her school uniform. Her uniform was a white blouse that had her old school’s insignia located at her heart. She wore a red tie and a tanned colored pleated skirt.
Before Jack and Kerra got out,
“Oh Kerra!” said Jack, “Before you had that ‘dream-attack’ you’ve got some mail.”
Kerra blinked, “Really from whom?”
