Wan Wan! Ch 1It was raining outside and Soul Eater Evans was completely alone in his shared apartment with with partner Maka Albarn. Maka was with Tsubaki and the girls to have a shopping spree at the mall, basically just to hang out with the girls for the whole day. Even their mischievous cat friend Blair was out on her part-time job.Wan Wan! Ch 13 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
With a remote control in his hand, Soul lazily flipped through every single channel on TV only to finally realize that there was completely nothing of his interests on the shows playing. Back in the old days, he would be amused by the fact that he gets to see himself on TV for being one of the people to help defeat the Kishin. Him and his gang, full-on working together to beat the evil Kishin. Those were the days of full action. Now Soul is finally a Death Scythe but instead of becoming Shinigami's death scythe, he was told to stay by Maka because they made a great team. Maka was the one who made the final blow and defeated the Kishin after all.
There was nothing to

"Y-yeah," Maka made a horrified look at Soul's aggressive eating habit. "Right when we got out of the apartment, didn't you say we were going to buy some clothes?"
Soul became silent for a moment, trying to remember anything about going to a mall. He shook his head and answered with a full mouth, "Mn, nhope. Ahy donch rememfer (Hm, nope. I don't remember)."
"Ahahaha . . . " Maka laughed awkwardly. He doesn't remember at all . . . "Then where are we going after here?" she took a piece of french fry and brought it to her mouth.
Soul munched and pondered for a short moment. "The . . . mall?"
"But you just—what—okay," his partner gave up and they both continued to eat.
In the end, they really did go to the mall around the area, but they didn't come for clothes. The place was populated with people, some were on dates, some were tourists, and some were jus
Wan Wan! Ch 2A few seconds had passed and the awkward silence still continued to fill the air. Soul's arms were still flung in mid-air, waiting for Maka reach out for him and give him his requested hug. But Maka stayed frozen beside him, thinking of what the heck had happened to her all-about-coolness partner. She understood that at his age he would still be able to pull pranks willfully, but not ones such as these. Acting cute and childish was just a line he would never cross, it was just one of the things that would destroy his reputation of being the cool guy. And plus, cute just wasn't his style . . . was it ever?Wan Wan! Ch 23 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
Soon enough, Soul's arms had gotten tired and he placed them gently down to his lap. He tilted his head to one side and said Maka innocently, "I missed you, Maka. You don't like hugs?"
Maka didn't know how to reply to this. In all honesty, she loved hugs but that wasn't the important part right now. Her first thought was Soul must be having some serious fever. His face wasn't pale or

"The Kataart Mountains? Why there Mistress?" Xelloss asked, confusion in his voice when he was told his new mission. "Didn't Gaav destroy what was left of the Clair Bible there?"
Zelas smirked, tossing her cigarette to the side. Her current form was that of a slender darker toned woman with long blonde hair, wearing a silky white dress. "That will become clear to you when you go with your mate, pup. After all, you still owe the Water Dragon King a favor, remember?"
Xelloss froze at the mention of that. " Yes, due to my carelessness. Forgive me my lord " he bowed his head. "To be in debt with a Shinzoku is a high dishonor to us."
"No need, your Soul Touch made you try so foolishly to help protect that little human of yours, I know it wasn't all following Phibrizzo's orders." Zelas shrugged. "So my orders are to get this favor out of the way before the events with Cepheid play out. Though Ragradia did seem to take a liking to Lina Inverse, so odds are she might not be in favor

"Hey those are the guys I told you about!" Pokota cried, sitting ontop of Gourry's head.
"Forgive us for barging into this conversation, but as you were kind enough to allow us to explore here Prince Posel, we figured we might as well assist you." The woman with silver hair spoke, smiling softly. "Allow me to introduce ourselves, I'm Milina and this is Luke."
"That and we were dragging back to the city this idiot woman that got in our way." Luke said, lifting up a green haired woman in a very skimpy outfit with a cape and a skull on her left shoulder along with long black boots.
"Oh my, Miss Martina isn't it?" Sylphiel gasped. "What are you doing here?"
"Wait, you know her?" Pokota blinked. "This whackjob came here a week ago claiming she was helping rebuild with the help of her 'lord' something called Zoradonam or whatever."
"It's Zoamelgustar!" the greened haired woman hissed. "And I am the queen of Zoana, how dare you insult me!"

"I SAID THAT'S MINE!"
"I HAD IT FIRST!"
"I DON'T GIVE A DAMN."
The morning had begun like several others, where Lina and Gourry turned the meal table into a battle field.
"HO HO HO HO ALWAYS THE GREAT WHITE SERPANT COMES OUT ONTOP!" Naga declared as she stole the piece of meat right between them!
"GIVE THAT BACK!!!" Lina and Gourry hissed, trying to tackle Naga down.
"Can't you three keep it down?" Zelgadis grumbled, obviously having a slight hangover.
"Oh my And I thought it could get brutal with just Gourry dear and Miss Lina " Sylphiel sweatdropped.
Filia sighed. "I see some things haven't changed."
"It's still good to see you again, Miss Filia." Amelia said with a smile, then turned to the Cepheid Knight. "And a great pleasure to finally meet you, Miss Luna."
Luna just shrugged her shoulders. "I highly doubt Lina spoke that much of me."
Xelloss just sat quietly at the table, sipping his tea. He had walked into the room without so much as a hello to anyone as he took his

"What's wrong?" I asked
"My my parents don't understand me." They replied.
"What parents do understand now and days."
"I hate my life, it sucks."
"It can't be that bad, it could be worse."
"Well with my childhood, my mother always forgot what day it was constantly. My gender was always questioned. The neighbors often forgot what the name of their family members were and I had to constantly remind them. My neighbors always forgot my name as well, but always found favor with me and always got me to run their errands. The house my mother and I lived in was small and only had one room and a kitchen. My father, I never knew him, he was never around, so I pretty much raised myself while my mother always sat in the kitchen.

"Are you sure we should have left the girls like that?" Milgasia looked unsure as he and Xelloss were inside the library of Dils.
"Lina will call me if she needs me, after all with the pledge in effect she is immortal now, only a Mazoku or Shinzoku with power that surpasses my own would be a real threat to her." Xelloss shrugged, fingering the spines of the books resting on the shelf. "Besides the sooner we rule out here, the sooner we can move onto Taforashia and back to Seyruun where your Soul Touch is." He opened one eye as he smirked at the dragon.
Milgasia narrowed his eyes, his arms crossed over his chest. " You're enjoying that information far too much, Beast Priest."
"Oh yes, I must say it's quite entertaining to find out." Xelloss laughed. "Though I suppose that makes us in laws doesn't it?"
"Don't make me ill, you've already dishonored me enough during the War of the Monster's Fall." Milgasia snarled.

On the back of my palm beams the seal of contract between Alois Trancy and me, the deep blue ink marking my sin in this new life as a demon.

"Prince Posel! Prince Posel!" a voice shouted throughout the peaceful country of Taforashia. Ever since the plague was cured and the ghost of Shabranigdo was dealt with the country was at complete peace.
The stuff animal form of the country's prince, Pokota as his friends often called him, had been daydreaming uptop a tree. He looked down at the woman that had called for him. "Hmmm? What is it Valerie?" he looked down at the deep red headed woman running towards him.
The woman was dressed in a blue shirt and a purple skirt, her hair flowing down her back. She stopped to catch her breath for a moment. "There are some people that have just arrived, they claim to be friends of yours. A priestess and a blonde swordsman say they here on account of Lina Inverse."

They didn't like we interrupted their game, even because two campers were sons of Ares, so they naturally don't like me doesn't matter what I do. We talked about the "friendly" capture the flag and found out that between the five who were playing, only two would spend Christmas here. Great; in the good and the bad meaning.
Good meaning: there'd be fewer people at camp to disturb me.
Bad meaning: we'd be even more massacred, mainly because we'd be with minus two sons of Ares. They were one of my only hopes.
After we finished finding all the campers, by my counts, we got to the following conclusion: we wouldn't be massacred; we would be

The trickster priest smiled his usual grin at the crimson haired woman laying on the bed, the sheets covered with her splattered blood. "Now Miss Lina, this will only take me a moment. It is a good thing we discussed everything ahead of time, I fear you would not have enough life left in you to state all your terms..."
Lina Inverse glared through her weak eyes. "... Just... Shut the hell up... And get on with it." she coughed, a bit more of the red liquid escaped from her mouth.
Xelloss waved his forefinger, leaning his head close as he placed the finger upon her lips. "I will not allow L-sama to claim your soul, Lina-chan." his Mazoku eyes slowly opening, piercing through her as death was creeping closer. "... For it belongs to me." he placed a violet jewel into her hand, and the world exploded in black sparks of magic. "Now, let's go save your sister shall we?"

The priest sighed, while this was Lina standing beside him, his trip to the Astral Plane confirmed that along with his Soul Touch so someone dressed as her couldn't fool him that easily, she was obviously possessed or under a spell. Must have been a timed spell since his eyes hadn't left her all night. Or

Tears falling from my eyes
I can't say a word
I try and try
but each and every attempt fails
I'll never be heard
No matter how much I cry
No matter how much I try
I'll always be left behind
I sit here all alone
Staring at the ground
Watching my tears fall
As my loved ones call
I do not answer
Since I can't speak at all
I do not call back
To my loved ones who call
Since they cannot hear me at all.

He recalled the smoke, thicker than creamy cake icing, a sharp taste he had fancied for so long- until that night. Oh, the carelessness, the need for a grey breath and dark air; he wanted it more than anything- he had to have it.
The worst of all was his undeniable humanity. How imperfect he was! Once he had though, in his smokey cloud, that the low burn of the cigarette poison made him perfect and whole. All else was bound to fail. But it had fai
