"I love you, Roza." He kissed me again. "I'll always be here for you. I'm not going to let anything happen to you."
The words were wonderful and dangerous. He shouldn't have said anything like that to me. He shouldn't have been promising he'd protect me, not when he was supposed to dedicate his life to protecting Moroi like Lissa. I couldn't be first in his heart, just like he couldn't be first in mine. That's why I shouldn't have said what I did next but I did anyway.
"And I won't let anything happen to you," I promised. "I love you." He kissed me again, swallowing off any other words I might have said.
We lay there for a while in silence, enjoying each other's body heat. Eventually we drifted off into a peaceful sleep, forgetting the outside world entirely. I had barely regained consciousness when I heard footfalls on the steeps and the door opening. Then someone spoke.
"Belikov, Hathaway, what's " the voice cut off.

Positive Traits of Aspergers SyndromeMany of those with Asperger's syndrome have a number of positive characteristics, including integrity, intelligence, endurance, and freedom from prejudice.Positive Traits of Aspergers Syndrome3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Often referred to as "autism lite" or a "shadow syndrome" of autism, Asperger's syndrome is relatively common, with up to 1 in 250 people in North America meeting the diagnostic criteria (Brasic, 27 April 2011).
Those with Asperger's, or "Aspies" (a term coined by Liane Holliday Willey in Pretending to Be Normal) are high-functioning in the sense that they are better able to maintain social relationships than those with autism. Unlike those with autism, Aspies often score highly on measures of verbal intelligence.
When contemplating disorders such as Asperger's syndrome, there is a tendency to focus on negative aspects, such as difficulty in reading social cues. But many of those with Asperger's syndrome have positive traits as well, which has led some people to question whether it should be viewed as a difference rather than a diso
Rose and Dimitri: last kissWe ran to the exit, emerging into the air. My group clustered by the opening, anxious to see what had happened. The sun, I was dismayed to see, was nearly gone. The nausea hadn't left me, which meant Strigoi were still alive.Rose and Dimitri: last kiss5 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
Moments later, my mother's party came tearing down the hall. By the numbers, one more had gone down. But they were so close. Everyone around me tensed up. So, so close.
But not close enough. Three Strigoi lay in wait in one of the alcoves. We'd passed them, but they'd let us go by. It all happened so fast; no one could have reacted in time. One of the Strigoi grabbed Celeste, his mouth and fangs going for her cheek. I heard a strangled scream and saw blood everywhere. One of the Strigoi went for Ms. Carmack, but my mother jerked her away and shoved her forward towards us.
The third Strigoi went for Dimitri. In all the time I had known him, I'd never seen Dimitri falter. He was always faster, always stronger than everyone else. Not this time. This Strigoi had caugh

"Stop calling me that Rosemarie," Dimitri hissed as Rose jabbed him in the stomach. As if he felt nothing, he dodged Rose's blinding kicks.Rose hated it when people called her that. Even the one man that she would always want to be with.Dimitri smirked and landed a blow at the side of Rose's head. She knew it would hurt later on, but the adrenaline in her veins were moving too fast for her to notice.
"Go on cowboy, keep trying to keep justice intact here in the academy, with me here, order isn't going to be received," Rose panted kicking Dimitri's shin. He flinched and that was all she needed. She punched his stomach and kicked him down landing on top of him.
She took out her practice stake, or rather stick and tried to navigate her way to his heart. If Dimitri was strigoi, he'd sure

commitment, college, good job,
stable career, climb up.
help them grow, retirement funds.
I was never told that it was okay to watch
flashing lights for hours and hours.
To devote every waking thought to an interest,
Even if that's the same maths equation, piano piece,
day in, day out.
To laugh when you're sad, to cry when you're happy.
I was never told it was okay not to naturally understand others,
That happiness was about embracing whatever makes you happy
regardless of 'the rules'.
I was never told
it was okay to be autistic.
to be human.
but it is okay,
to know this anyway.

For both of us this is a huge milestone.
We have grow together and grown around each other
For eighteen years.
I feel sad, and glad about her going,
Sad: everything will be different between us now
Glad: she is moving towards her new life.
It is time for her to shift to another town
For that is where the Design School is.
She tells me she doesn't want to go!
I tell her, "I know".
But she can't stay and travel every day.
No bus. No train.
Resisting the urge to be impatient,
I DON'T tell her to get over herself.
Instead I put on my coach's hat and encourage her through
this massive change.
She's never done transitions well.
Her first week outside of me
she cried all day and night
she couldn't tell mum why.
Her face, beautiful but scrunched up,
took a few days to come right.
Then she ate and she grew.
I should have bottle fed her.
Breast is much too personal and touchy for her liking.
Screaming, arching her back away from me,
Not liking to be held.

Note: This is my experiences and thoughts on what it is like to be an Aspie. I understand others have their own experiences and opinions and I respect them for that. The reason I wrote this was a hope that those who read this gain some understanding as to how people with Asperger's live their lives. However each person is unique so their behaviour and way of life may be different to mine.
I wake to the sound of my alarm going off. I groan Ugh not again... I grope for my mobile and switch it off; the alarm is rather noisy. Here I go again; having to put on that masquerade; going undercover yet again. If only people would just understand what it is like to live the way I and many others like me have to live each and every day ..
Just imagine yourself living in a world where you see and deal with everything differently. Put yourself in the shoes of an Aspie; a person with Asperger's Syndrome. It's a high-functioning form of Autism. It's hard to
