Minna-san!! Konnichiwa!! How are you to day? I hope your fine!!
You remember what we have learnt last time? The "Janai" thing I told you that the negative form of "desu" is "janai" & both of them have a past form "Datta" & "janakatta" .
I told you also that the next lesson (This lesson) will be about the interrogative form but I changed my mind because it's too easy All what you have to do is to add the particle "ka" at the end of the sentence Like this:
"Anata wa Hiroto desu" . "You're Hiroto"
"Anata wa Hiroto desu ka?" .. "Are you Hiroto?"
So I decided to teach you something more useful & I guess you will like it!! How to say "I like something" & "I don't like something"!!

You walked over to the (favorite type of genre) section and searched for your favorite book. It didn't take you too long to find it though. When you went to go take the book off of the shelf, it wouldn't budge. 'How odd...', you though and tried again. Alright, this book did not want to move. This began to frustrate you. You put your foot against the shelf and pulled with all of your might.

Now, usually, you would discourage such activities taking place among your flowerbeds, but watching them continuously get shot down was honestly too funny to miss.

As of right now your best friend was currently flirting with this young man.

Mysterious ValentineMost people in Konoha would agree that late winter in the village was the best time of year. Because the village was located in the middle of Fire Country, there really were no winters there. The coldest it ever got was hail and thunderstorms, but never anything too horrible. On the other hand, the summer months were torturous. Not only because the majority of the villagers were shinobi and kunoichi who wore long and thick ninja gear, but also because it was a rarity for the heat not to rise into the triple digits.Mysterious Valentine7 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This

Darn it. How'd I get myself into this mess?
Somehow Rainbow Dash found herself nervously jumping from cloud to cloud outside of Rarity's dress shop, unable to sit still. She couldn't stop thinking, couldn't stop her head from spinning.
This is all that darn unicorn's fault.
It started when she had finally taken Rarity's offer to join her for a trip to the spa. Fluttershy was stuck with her animals in the meadow, or perhaps was grooming Applejack's dog or Spike; she wasn't listening. All she could think of was now she was forced to keep her promise to be a part of a girly afternoon.
Honestly it wasn't that bad of a time. Rainbow certainly wasn't above being pampered and even considered coming back on her own time. It wasn't even hard keeping up conversation with Rarity; true, they rarely had one on one time normally, but it wasn't like they had nothing to talk about without the others around and she was cool in Rainbow's book. No, the worst of it was having to sit so close

It has been several nights since I first met Alfie, and his abscence had admittedly left me restless; it's almost as if he's cast some sort of spell on me that makes me crave him and the scent of gunpowder and grease. I never expected him to appear one warm, sultry night when I was in bed.
I had been wearing that cracked leather bomber jacket, inhaling the scent as I curled up underneath my bed-sheets.
Only when the smell assaulted my senses even stronger did I look up, wanting to see those blood-red eyes and the wolfish smile.
"Hey darlin'. It's been a while, hasn't it?"
I squeak as the American leaps down from the window where he had been perched, rather elegantly bounding across the room to pin me down.
His wide white smile is right in my face now, those eyes boring into my very soul.
"You know, I've actually missed you..." He purrs, rocking back on to his haunches and letting me sit up. Those eyes remain half-closed, the sunglasses still nestle
