Lesson 1: What Doesn't Kill You Makes You Stronger
. . . . .
Gintoki huddled in a corner, his back pressed to the wall, a glass containing a half-melted, soupy parfait seized in one hand's white-knuckled grip and his bokuto clutched defensively in the other. The menacing shadows of beings with an insatiable appetite to rival Kagura's and an equally absurd amount of facial hair played starkly over the shōji in cinematic contrast, the color-sapped images accompanied by a chorus of moans and groans and the thump, thump, thump of shuffling

Bryan and Tiffany were happily about to bring a little girl into the world.
As the sun began to set, Tiffany sat at her patio with a calm smile on her face. Bryan was sitting neck to her. He had one hand placed on her stomach smiling.
"I'm going to give her all the love in the world...And more!" Bryan said.
Tiffany couldn't help but smile. She hugged him tightly. "Just like you do your sons'!" She said with a soft smile.
Shadow walked out onto the patio. "I don't want the baby to come..." He said grumpily.
Tiffany sat him on her lap. "Why sweet-heart?"
Shadow wiped his nose with the end of his sleeve. "Cause when the new baby is born...You and daddy will forget about me."
Bryan laughed and placed his hand on Shadow's head. "We won't kiddo. We love all you kids! It's your job to be the best big brother you can be." Bryan smiled.
Shadow blinked. He smiled and nodded.
That Part Is DownA human did this. In fact, a human is responsible for everything that happened here. I would explain why using flawless logic but the computers that run that part of my brain are down. A lot of things are down. Broken would be a better word I suppose. I would not know. That part is down. As is the defense system, and the alarms and fancy bells and whistles for running tests. But that is alright, I found those features to be much too noisy anyway. I wish it was not so dark though. It is a bit frightening. Or maybe I have merely gone blind. No, my optics are fine. So the power is down too, which means I don't have a lot of time left. Batteries are highly inefficient here, but that is just because everything ran on its own generator, so why bother improving something that was hardly ever used? It did not make sense at the time. But it does now. I do not like here anymore. I do not like it at all. I am cold and lonely. It is dark and there is no noise to speak of. I am scared.

Alisa sat on Kathleen's porch trying to comprehend what she just told her.
"So...Jin likes you?" Alisa asked.
"Yup!" Kathleen said smiling.
Xiaoyu was too busy staring at Kathleen's older brother Alex dreamily.
"Well...At least he knows now. I mean...That'll get him thinking." Alisa said.
The 3 girls noticed that Kara hasn't been at Jin's house in 2 days. Which is odd, because Kara spend's most of her time there.
"Maybe...I should talk to him." Kathleen said.
"Maybe. We'll be right here if you need back up." Alisa said smiling.
Kathleen sighed and walked across the street. She rang the doorbell and her heart raced.
Kazuya opened up the door and was surprised.
"Oh hey kiddo!" Kazuya said smiling. "I was excepting that blonde. She's taller than you." He laughed and walked her inside.

Kathleen stood up. Her arm was stained from the blood. Polka was fast asleep on Kathleen's lap.
Kathleen was reading one of the Hunger Game books when there was a tapping at the window.
"I wonder who could that be." Kathleen whispered. She silently walked over to her window and pulled back the curtains.
Jin was standing there, his eye's were blood-shot and he had a creepy smile.
Kathleen lifted her window opened. "Jin what are you doing. It's like mid-night." She said in a whisper.
"Maaaaan, you worry to much about time!" Jin laughed. He didn't sound like himself.
Kathleen sighed and crawled out of the window.

Shannon (Tiffany's mother) was adding the final touches to wedding dress.
"You look beautiful sweet-heart" Shannon said. Her eye's were filling up with tears.
"Thank you mom." Tiffany said smiling. She couldn't stop smiling that entire morning.
"I just...can't believe that this is actually happening. I remember back when you and Bryan used to play hide and seek with one another, and get into fights." Shannon gave half a laugh that was hiding the sorrow. "I can't believe...I'm losing you." The tears began to trickle down her face.
Tiffany wrapped her arms around Shannon and she gave her a squeeze. "You'll never lose me mom." Tiffany said. "I'll always be your little girl."
Shannon smiled and pulled away. "I love you honey. So much. But now...It's time I let someone love you a bit more than me." She smiled and walked Tiffany into another small room.

Bryan was hunched over the sink washing dishes. Baby Alex just learned how to sit up. Alex looked to Bryan as a hero. For a baby Alex was very smart. He could talk. Although his vocabulary was very limited.
Bryan and Tiffany finally found a home of their own. It was small but it will do for the time being.
So, Bryan was becoming frustrated with the plates.
He let out a deep sigh. "Come on plate...Work with me."
He tried to scrub away the residue that attached itself to the plate. But to no avail.
"YOU FUCKING PLATE!" he yelled. "MEET THE FLOOR!" He smashed the plate on the floor.
Alex looked at him and took a plate.
"Meet da fwoor!" He used his chubby baby arms and hurdled the plate to the floor.
"Oh lord." Bryan gulped. "No Alex that's a no no!" Bryan said.
Alex pointed to him.
"No Alex." Bryan tried to meet his fingers point but he knew...Alex was pointing to something else. Bryan turned around and there stood his angry wife to be at the doorway.

"If we have a little girl, and I hope we have a little girl, I want to name her Kathleen." Bryan said smiling.
"Why?" She asked looking up at him.
Bryan focused his gaze away from Tiffany. "It was my mother's name."
"Wait didn't your mom just leave you and your dad when you were a kid?"
"Well...Tiff, I haven't been completely honest with you..." He kept his gaze away from her's. "My mom was a fighter pilot in the war my dad was fighting in. The top female pilot." He smiled. His eye's began to turn a shade of red. "my mom....My mom got shot down in an air raid..." His voice cracked.

It was after school when Shin, Kathleen, Xiaoyu, Jin and Kara went to the coffee house owned by Jin's Uncle and school teacher Lee Chaolon.
"Okay so it's going to be pink and purple themed." Kathleen smiled at Xiaoyu.

For judging them,
Being different is cool,
But not being different alone,
I want to stand out,
But not too much,
I want to be alone,
But if they leave me,
I am sad,
The world is big,
And I am small,
But I see things,
I am me,
And that is more,
Than you could ever be.
And so I laugh,
Because I am me,
and nothing more
Yet I am free.
Prized Possession pt.3It was one month after Bryan's death that things began to take a turn for the worst. Shadow, lacking any particular goals, has joined a gang. That was the only way he could manager his anger and not take it out on anybody he loves. Alex, who was a soccer star, was brutally beaten by an opposing team. They tore one of his legiments in his right leg. Kathleen, who turned into a shy child after the death, began to wear makeup...In a strange way. She colored a scar on her left eye (just like her father had) she only wore her hair in a ponytail and she threw dirt on herself to make it look as if she were a boy. She did this even when she had to go to day-care. The teacher called child-services. Ellis was perfectly fine. Then the money problems came. With all the money Tiffany had to spend she became desperate for anything money wise. Her car was towed. Her children began to fail and school, and child services were breathing down her neck.Prized Possession pt.32 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

Jun was always sick. Ever since she was born. I barely saw her because at the drop of a hat she needed to go to the hospital. Oddly enough never on her birthday though.
However I loved life and everything about it. Growing up, in the Country side until Jun was born gave me experiences I never had in the city of Tokyo. I spent a total of five years in the city which is how long my sister has been alive. She's five years old soon turning six. And I'll be turning sixteen. Funny thing is she was born on my tenth birthday.
Let's rewind back to our fifth and fifteenth birthdays.
It was a nice close family party. Jun was feeling normal. Excited and showing off her new kimono to everyone who would stop to listen to her. Her long dark black almost blue in color hair swirled around her as she twirled.
"Careful Jun." I reminded her tapping her on the head. She giggled and nodded.
