The End of FriendshipThe End of Friendship.
It ends not with anger,
Nor with Harsh words,
Or even fists being thrown.
The End of Friendship,
Is at the very end of the road,
Which does not end with bricks of hate,
Or with rude phrases.
The End of Friendship,
It takes year to come.
It gives you time,
To enjoy the memories.
Because the End of Friendship,
Does not Come by Choice.
It comes when you die,
Or the friend you loved.
The End of Friendship,
Ends when you are split physically,
But Friendship never ends,

talking over the "why?"'s and "how?"'s.
But the out of the blue,
friend number two groans, "I hate my life;
just kill me now."
The first friend just smiled,
a kind look in his eye;
and calmly began to say,
"I'm sorry mate; I'd do anything for you,
but your life's not mine to take.
It belongs to God and God alone;
Life's a gift sent from above.
The Father gives and the Father takes
in his endless acts of love."
The first just stared at his good ol' pal;
then looked out at the darkened yard.
Then he finally said, "If he loves me, my friend;
why'd he make my life so damn hard?"
"Well, life is full of bumps in the road;
things to prepare you for what's to come.
You think your life's rough?
God too had it tough;
he watched the death of his only son."
"But problem after problem keeps bombarding me, man;
I swear it sees no end!
It's like I have no choice;
like no one hears my voice--
like I'll be struggling unt

Mama says that I can write you letters to keep close to you. I think Mama's being silly, because how can I be close to you when you're so far away?
Daddy I didn't want you to go. I miss you. But I know you said that you're going to battle like a prince in one of my storybooks, and that you need to slay the dragon named Ul-kie-da. You said you were going to protect me and Mama, so that Ul-kie-da will never get us. But how long will you be gone Daddy?
I lost that wiggly tooth today, Daddy! See? I told you that you wouldn't have to use the pliers. I know that you were just kidding when you told me that you wanted to yank it out, because you were smiling when you said it. You're smile's pretty, Daddy. But if I'd said you could pull it out, would you have come home? I still miss you, Daddy. But I know in your last letter you said you still had to find the Ul-kie-da dragon. Are you going to come home after that?

You had the best night of sleep since you joined the crew of the Cheshire and it was ruined by someone nudging you and whispering you to wake up. You grunted and slowly to wake up to Anna whispering, "Sorry, ___, I know it's early but that Kirkland wanted to get an early start today. He said you're casting off as soon as you get back to the ship." You yawned and rubbed your eyes, really not wanting to wake up or leave the bed, then slipped on your boots and followed Anna downstairs. Allistor, Ross, and Rob were all there in the empty tavern, ready to go and waiting.
"Ah! There's sleeping beauty! Good morning to you Miss ___!" Rob said, waving to you. You glanced outside and saw that it was barely the crack of dawn. "Why so early..? Why couldn't you let me sleep for another hour or two?" You mumbled through a yawn.
Allistor got up from his chair, with Ross doing the same after, and went to you. "Sorry, lass, but I want t' set sail soon and I want t' d

"Lass, wake up. Come on wake up!", Allistor was trying to wake you up, nudging your shoulder to wake you up. You opened one eye, looked at him then turned your back to him and tried to fall back asleep. With slight irritation, the Scotsman pulled you right off the seat,"Gah! Hey!", you glared up at him with sleepy eyes.
Allistor smiled, "Well now! Mornin' Miss Grumpy! Glad ya' can finally wake up!" He started to laugh and your threw your boot at him."Shut up! I was enjoying my sleep until you came around!"
"Hey!" He was quick to dodge the incoming boot,"I woke ya' up because we're almost to our destination! I thought ya might wanted t' know," You blinked and lowered your arm, which had the other boot ready to be thrown. "Really?"
He smirked, "The Cheshire is quite fast, ___. It made this trip faster then expected and made me quite 'appy because I'm one step closer t' my treasure."
You sighed then grabbed your other boot and started to put them on, f

You fell asleep before Allistor, laying in his arms and being extra careful of his bruised stomach and your bruised cheek. The next morning you woke up before him, quietly slipping on your boots and heading out of the office. It was an hour after sunrise and everyone was already out cleaning up the remaining mess of the ship. They spotted you and one of them spoke up, "Oi! 'ow did ya' come up with that idea with th' rope and the crow's nest? That was bloody crazy but we all loved it!"
Then a second man spoke, "The lass isn't so bad after all! And 'ere you all that she was bad luck!"
"She's lucky!Only got away with a bruise on 'er cheek and a smile on 'er face!"Another called out.
You blinked in surprise, not expecting any praise from the crew."I...I d-don't know what came over me! I-I just wanted to help instead of standing there and watch you all fight!"
They all laughed and you could feel your face warm up bright red with embarrassment.Ross came up

One of Evans' crewmates grabbed you roughly by your shirt to pick you up, heading towards the plank that connected the two ships. You were still dazed from the hit and did your best to focus on your surroundings. Ross then came and charged right into the man who held you by the arm, making him let go of you and fall. "Ya' alright there now, lass?" He asked, giving the other man a swift kick to his side. You blinked a few times to get focused on everything and looked up at Ross.
"Y-yea I think I'll be alright " You rubbed your cheek, still feeling the tingling of the slap. "Where is the captain?" You looked around then saw the two captains in battle of the swords, not giving glance to the nearby crewmen of both ships.
Ross shook his head, "It's a 50/50 chance for both of them but Evans 'as more experience with that cutlass then the capt'n does. I'm not likin' 'ow this is turnin' out." He pulled you out of the way as the two men were getting clos

You walked down 2 pairs of small stairs till you were at the bottom level of the ship, only seeing a few more barrels and cages. They were empty except for the one in the corner where a shadow was in the corner, deathly quiet. You swallowed hard and kept close to Allistor as the both of you went closer to the cage. "Well, if it isn't the Red Devil himself and his persistent little lass, here to grace me with his present." Evans quietly spoke up, not moving from his spot. "What is it that ya' want? Hmm?" he was smiling a bit, wiping a bit of dried blood off his lip.
Allistor stood there in front of the cage, face to face with the other man, "Oh shut ya' trap, Evans. I'm 'ave question and yer gonna answer them." Evans expression didn't change; neither did his dark tone, "Alright then, what are your questions Scotsman?"
"The lass' brother was on yer ship and she' lookin' for 'im. I know ya' know what 'appen t' 'im because yer givin' me that smile of yers.

"Hey capt'n, ya sure Miss ___, will be alright on the ship by 'erself?" Ross asked, as he helped row the small boat of men to the island. Allistor looked up from his map and looked back at Ross, looking puzzled. "What do ya' mean? She can 'andle 'erself pretty well and I told those dogs that if they mess with the lass, they'll be keelhauled right of the ship before they can say 'capt'n'." Ross chuckled and stroked his beard, "Alright then. I do believe that the lass can 'andle 'erself for a few hours."
Allistor went back to his map, "Good t' know, now stop blabberin' and paddle." Ross nodded and continued to paddle with the 4 other men who were paddling alongside him.
Once they got to the island, they secured the small boat and started to look around. "So where exactly are we lookin' for, capt'n?" One of the men asked, looking at the large forest in front of them. Allistor looked at his map then looked at the forest, "We're lookin' for a small trail

You followed Allistor towards the back of the office, still silently glaring at him. He stopped in front of a large chest, let go of your hand, and started to look through it.I could easily run off while he's distracted , you thought, looking around the small room. You examined your surroundings, slightly interested at how it was kept so clean. Your eyes flickered at the sight of a slender sharp dagger that was stuck in the wall, holding up what appeared to be a "wanted" poster. "Don't even think about it, Lass." Allistor replied, still bent down and looking through the chest, pulling out clothing.
"I wasn't " You started to protest but he just chuckled. "Right Last person who said that to me tried to kill me and almost did." He stood up with a small bundle of clothing. "And what happened to him?"
Allistor's smile slightly grew, "He lost a hand and was kicked of my ship before you can say 'Cheshire'" He shoved the bundle into yo

The night seemed to take forever as you sat there in the middle of the room quietly, debating at your choices.I could give the map to him then be on my way, then we'll have no problem but I'm curious on what this map leads to if that boy was running away from those gits with it.. You looked around to make sure there was no sign of anyone looking through the window, and then you pulled the map out of your pocket and looked at it. You opened up the map and gazed at it curiously and cautiously. "Interesting " You quietly spoke, gazing at the intricate design that was written in delicate hand writing. You couldn't read the words on it but you did run a finger along the trail that lead through a different symbol.
Then you heard a "click" from the door and you quickly folded the map and stuffed it in your bodice then jumped up to your feet. The door opened and there stood the same man with those piercing green eyes and fiery red hair, stari

You plopped into the large chair and growled, folding your arms and slumping deep in it. You were frustrated and angry and wanted to throw something at the captain."Gah! The sooner I get off this damn ship the better!" You kicked the desk hard, making it lift up and slam down with a loud "thump". You didn't hear the door open when it happened and the Scottish voice made you turn around and look back. "Hey! Ya can yell al ya want, but don' t take it out on my chair!"
He closed the door and started to walk towards you. You then jumped out of the chair and confronted him. "Don't give me that! You don't just pick me up like some doll and carry me off like I'm your property!"
"Well then, I guess we need t' change that. I'll make you my property." He was smiling and his green eyes flickered with amusement. "Wait a minute.."You raised an eyebrow at him "Yep, you'll stay here in the office,"he began to step closer and you quickly backed up, "won't talk to anyone e

Once the crew was done with their work, you began to scrub the deck in silence, avoiding anyone's eyes when you passed by them. Some of them snickered at you but you still ignored them, until one of them kicked the bucket of dirty soap water and you slipped and fell on your butt. As you were trying to hide your embarrassment and anger, the crew was laughing like a bunch of hyenas.Stupid jerks!, you thought as you were trying to get up without slipping again. The laughing stopped when Ross came up on to the deck and glared at them.
"Oi! What the bloody 'ell are ye laughin' at?" He asked, looking at them. None of the crew spoke and he looked down at you as you were getting up. "Are ya messin' with the lass?" One spoke up, "It was just for a small laugh. We weren't trying to be mean to the lass."Sure you were...ugh!, you thought, fixing your pants and boots. "I don't care!

A week after sailing, you started to get high hopes that you'll find your brother and the both of you can go home safely. You were ready to get off this ship and far away from these pirates as soon as possible, especially the red headed, rude, captain of theirs. Allistor had two sides to him; when he was out on the deck, he was assertive and quite scary when he yelled and when he was in his office he was quieter and easy to talk to. It made it hard for you to figure out which one was actually him and which was all an act. You ignored him most of the time and the new feelings that were rising every time you thought of him.
One afternoon, after most of the work was done and everyone was down in the galley eating, you went to the front of the ship to relax, letting the cool ocean breeze cool you down. You leaned against the railing and sighed, rubbing your shoulders a bit.
"Can I join ya'?", Allistor's voice was quiet, you looked at him then back to the

Mirkwood was her home, the place she knew too well. She knew every corner of the streets, she knew every building. She knew every Elf that lived there in peace. She knew the safety of the realm and Mirkwood.
She never had any reason to leave, but she had always wanted to. Her closest friend knew this all too well.
"But Faelwen! Who would you travel with? You are not but a wee lass! You will be hurt if you go!" a small Elvish boy with long blonde hair and sea-bound blue eyes squeaked.

You woke up in the late afternoon, feeling a bit dizzy from the headache and sleeping awkwardly on the bed. You yawned, fixed your hair and headed out to see what was going on the deck. A few of the men waved to you, some snickering and whispering about what you did, and others ignored you. You rolled your eyes at them and started to look for Ross or the captain and found no sign of them. When you stopped looking, you noticed the Cheshire wasn't out at sea but, instead, docked at a large busy port. Curiously, you leaned on the railing to get a better look.
It was busy with merchants, sailors, and all sorts of people selling and buying. It made you frown because it reminded you of home.I wonder what is going on over there and what I'll be doing if I wasn't here , you thought, staring down at your feet. "Oh! There ya' are, lass!

You tried to get up again but fell down at the strike of pain again. "Nngh!!" You whimpered, trying to deal with the pain and ducking down when shot fired again. Allistor saw you and instantly rushed to you, "___!" He shot at your brother's crew then bent down to examine your thigh. "It hurts I can't get up!"

Allistor tried to move your hand but you wouldn't let him. "___, ya' got t' let me see it." You bite your lip then moved your hand for him.

Two weeks passed and, eventually, you became a full time crew member of the Cheshire. You learned everyone's name and managed your way around the ship, doing your best to avoid getting hit or bumping into any of them. When he wasn't carrying out orders, Ross kept an eye on you and made sure the crew didn't try to mess with you too much. You still kept your eye on the captain and your guard up every time you were around him. One day you finished your work early and went to the quarter deck and leaned on the railing, after a few minutes, Ross came and joined you.
"How are ya' holdin' up, lass?" He asked, leaning on the railing with you.
You looked up at him then back to looking around the ship. "I'm alright. I'm still getting use to the fact that I'm on a bloody pirate ship."
