Winterdust When Kamui is seven, he finds his father sitting in a chair in a stark, bare room with his head in his hands. An old nurse passes him at the doorway, dressed in white with a clipboard under her arm. She takes a moment to kneel down and ruffle Kamui's messy, uncombed hair; her smile is sad, and Kamui doesn't understand.Winterdust1 year ago in Short Stories More Like This
There are other people in the room, too. Their low murmurs make his father's shoulders shake and Kamui sees a white sheet pulled over his mother's face, before a bundle wrapped in white (white white white) is placed gently into his father's arms. His father's cheeks are damp and mottled, but he looks down at the bundle and s

"This is completely unjustified! Unorthodox! Unsatisfactory!" Bane's voice rippled through the small tent that ringmaster Elly was stationed in. She was making attempts at relaxing for a few spare moments before returning to her duties of ordering around her staff and hearing all the sniffles and whines from the other contestants. Not to mention she also wished to slip out and take a seat to watch the fights themselves - even a ringmaster deserved to have some appropriate entertainment.
"I want a fix for this right now! I prefer not to look like the pink-haired chick from Lazy Town." Bane demanded. As time began to slip past, th

The three figures walked into the dark gutter. All of them carried a sack full of food, water and some medicines. None of them said a word.
Jun was still upset by Bryce's presence, not only would he be living at the palace but, now, he was messing with the only thing she cared about, besides her little brother, and all without her concern.
Rhett stood beside her but wouldn't dare to talk to her while she was in that mood, he knew her too well to mess up with her, but Bryce didn't.
"Did we really have to come to the gutter?" the boy with blonde curls grumbled. "It smells awful. I'm sure there has to be another way to

Jasper was okay with flying. It wasn't bad. What he didn't like were his seatmates. Next to him was a six year old who was definitely close to gross and next to him was a slightly obese man who was snoring loudly. Jasper sighed and put his elbow on the window sill (he was at the window seat) and stared outside.
After looking around, he carefully flipped open his phone. The image of him and his girlfriend, Katie Gardner appeared on the screen. Jazz smiled to himself. He was almost home and it was almost summer. He ran his fingers through his hair and tried to remember their last meeting.

"Wow. This place is a dump."
"Your face is a dump."
"That was completely uncalled for. What did I ever do to you? Save you from impending insanity? Showed you a way to see your family? Took you to this dump to follow through on an absurd notion? Well, yes. I did all those things, actually. I'm fantastic."
Nessa rolled her eyes and shoved him in the shoulder. "Can it, Will, this isn't about you." They were standing before a shack of a cabin on the east end of the town. If there was any traffic, it trickled up and down the street slowly. Though both Will and Nessa looked out of place in their outfitsdusty from the walk there, and torn

Will barged through the gaping hole of the broken door without a glance backward. Sky took one look at Nessa's face and turned away to follow his friend, realizing that Nessa needed some time.
She took deep breaths as she stared at the porch of her father's little cabinhis apartment, he called it, because all the animals were his close neighbors. Birds sang in the trees and flitted from branch to branch while a hot June wind made the boughs sway under its duress. There were dusty bear prints that led to and from the door way, a nosy animal looking for an easy meal.
Nessa just took it all in, astonished to find that her chest hurt no m

Four days later, Lucy and Kale returned from Los Angeles with bittersweet news. Nessa was anxious, fearing for the last several days that she might lose her place here, where she was comfortable with Sky and intrigued by Will. Five days with them, and she'd never been closer to anyone else.
Sky's hand wrapped around Nessa's in sign of comfort as they sat stick-straight in one of the sofas in the lounge area near the dining room; she'd learned to accept his physical contact. Will paced the floora habit Nessa had realized he hadand ran a hand through his curls, muttering something too low for anyone else to hear. The only person wh
