I had found her unconscious on the beach and brought her into my palace, the beautiful silent girl from the ocean. Her love for life and child-like innocence had pulled me into such a spell that I had completely fallen in love with her. Now the girl I came to love with my entire being was in my arms and disappearing before my very eyes.
The sun had risen moments ago when I saw her dive into water. I went after her only to find her surrounded by a storm of seafoam. Then I realized it was all her, she was becoming one with the water piece by piece, her skin rising in bubbles before vanishing into the sea. Her mouth was open in a silent scream. The sight made my stomach churn but my heart took over. I embraced her tightly, perhaps to try and keep anymore of her body from disappearing.
"It`s ok. It`s ok." I tried to will my thoughts to her.
She stilled. The bubbles continued to flow and rise. My tears joined them. In t

I stared outside the glass interior of the elevator. I was trapped in here with a strange girl wearing a maroon colored Victorian dress with a matching velvet hat that contrasted her turquoise pony tails. She simply stood there smiling next to the button panel as the elevator continued rising at an alarming rate. I could not determine the destination we were headed as we rose farther and farther past layers of clouds. Why wasn`t I dead? Surely the oxygen was extremely thin here, if not nonexistent. It was all too strange to be real. Randomly the "Elevator Girl" would push a button that opened the doors. Instead of having overwhelming air currents pull us from the tiny enclosed space, strange scenes would appear in front of me.
They were different every time. One being a boy in poor war-torn land, carrying a gun larger than he was. Another scene had displayed a rich and advanced country with an identical boy looking at th

"Take me to a Nuclear Reactor..." Rin`s pained voice echoed.
With blank and emotionless eyes she stared ahead as she continued to fall farther and farther towards a bright turquoise light surrounded by beams of neon blue. This was one of those dreams were I didn`t exist, or rather, I was simply a presence. A spectator of a story unfolding. There wasn`t much I could understand about this one in particular though. All I knew was that when I screamed for her she couldn`t hear me. Moments ago I had simply watched as she soundlessly strangled a small girl. An innocent younger version of herself. They were the same person and yet completely different. After the deed was done Rin had simply walked to a Nuclear Plant and let herself fall into the Reactor. At this moment she was plummeting towards the core but she wasn`t burning up and the light wasnt getting any closer.
"Take me to the nuclear reactor..." the pained words again came from her paled lips and f
Kiseki -Chapter 5- Servant of EvilKiseki -Chapter 5- Servant of Evil3 years ago in Romance More Like This
From the other side of a white door ornamented with gold, I listened to a young girl trapped in a repeated cycle of childish laughter and hysterics. I tightened my firm grip on the silver tray with the young Queen`s favorite Orange Leaf tea and brioche snacks. It was almost too much for me. The noise from the girl`s room echoed throughout the halls. Aside from a few guards down the hall, no one else was on this floor of the castle. Most of the other servants were long gone because everyone feared Rin, The Queen of Yellow Country. A ruler the townspeople dubbed, "The Daughter of Evil".
When she quieted I knocked lightly and entered. Random articles of clothing, broken glass from mirrors and china, as well as the delicately painted Royal Family Portrait was in shambles throughout the supposed room of elegance. I spotted Rin sitting blankly in a chair next to her small tea time table, patiently and calmly waiting for me to presen

The air was so cold, quietly whispering as it escaped the small cracks of our cottage walls. I handed a mug of cocoa to a girl in bed covered by a thick comforter. I could feel her hands shake as my fingers brushed against them.
She looked up at me and smiled as she accepted the drink. "Arigato, Len-kun."
I blushed. She sounded so cute when she said my name like that.
"N-no problem, Rin." I smiled back at her, hiding my emotional turmoil.
I knew it wasn`t the cold causing her to tremble because there was a fire going that made the room toasty warm. Rin was so pale now, her skin practically glowing next to her blonde hair. I don`t know much about medicine or anything like that but I couldn`t help but wonder if she was dying. I had no way of being sure. All I knew was that I had to keep her warm...because cold only seemed to weaken her.
We were alone out here in a winter wilderness. Both our fa

"It`s all a lie!" I screamed falling to my knees.
My brown raggedy clothes were too small for me and full of holes. Through my exposed knees I felt the cold presence in the prison-yard `s landscape of thin infertile dirt. The weather was freezing and painful to my exposed and sensitive wounds, like everything else here. I was covered in blood and dirt from my most recent and past beatings from the Warden`s men. People here were like lifeless puppets. They didn`t do anything unless the Warden told them to. The existence of solid food was doubted. The death hanging in the air suffocated any form of hope. I stared at the giant barbwire fence in front of me. Bodies lay unattended there, previous prisoners who wanted to escape and were shot down through order of the Warden by men in the watch towers. Standing back to my feet I staggered towards it. They never let us sleep here, the men and women who rotted by the fence were experiencing eternal slumber. E

She was my childhood friend. The quietest and kindest girl I knew. When we were seven I died from an illness. I remember her desperately trying to warm my cold hands with her hiccuping breaths as she sobbed uncontrollably. As I watched her from above, in my unseen form, my heart was deeply moved and I felt terrible for the loneliness I left her with.
I continued to watch her as years passed. The trauma of my death caused her to forget me and I had hoped that would make her happy again...but it didn`t. She went through life alone, sighing quietly to herself like she did the day I died. I begged God to let me return to her, just once, so I could make her happy and then she could move on. I could finally go when she turned sixteen. I found her in the park we used to play in, alone and confused. She couldn`t understand why she was unhappy.
My appearance surprised her but she never recognized me. I sim

I saw her pale silluette, like a bright light, in a cave. She was dancing alone. Singing with a lonely melodic voice. Songs or prayers to the sky and to the earth, all in the name of a dragon. With her white ribbon in her hair and her flowing ivory dress tracing the air of her movement, she was a spectacular sight, but I knew it wasn`t right. What I was seeing now was another vision of my long lost twin sister.
There were times when I simply dreamed fantasies of our stolen childhood days but this was different. In this particular vision she was no longer a mere child but a young woman caught up with my present time. As I`ve traveled the world searching for her I would periodically hear her singing and then catch a glimpse of the prison she lived in. An artificial paradise in the shadows, without people to hurt her but rather a dragon willing to sacrifice her if she did not sing with every living breath she had. I had to find h

...There was no dream...
My hands shook as I typed frantically onto the keyboard. I tried to remain calm and completely focused as my heart raced with excitement. My chest throbbed as my sickly lungs threatened to trap me in a hindering spell of coughs again at any moment. I pressed the enter key. There! In a matter of seconds the last bit of program information traveled into the Memory Machine. It`s large screen lit up with a bright yellow light. The Japanese hiragana symbols for "Kokoro" appeared in the center. I stared in disbelief. I had finished it...Kokoro....An artificial heart for Rin. Then my chest heaved. I gasped for air and the coughs started up again as my insides ached. I gripped my sides to suppress the pain as I choked on air. My current state of weakness brought me to the floor. I stared at the
