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"!!

But what do you use to fix a broken person?
Kisame had been asking the question for over a week now. He still wasnt sure exactly what had happened, but the night he and Itachi had been on the couch, and the Uchiha had started crying, he knew that something very fragile had snapped inside the weasel. The problem was, Kisame had no idea what that something had been, let alone how he was to go about fixing it.
Itachi had been off, ever since that night. His reactions were delayed, his eyes were always looking off into the distance, and he had stopped coming over to the sharks house as frequently as he used to.
Kisame sighed and walked into the living room. Maybe he could drown out his thoughts with a little TV.
Itachi was stretched out on his bed, eyes glued to the ceiling. His father was still at work, his brother was at a friends

The big day is just around the corner.
Your parents must be so proud, Rose.
Arent you excited?
No. Rose was decidedly not excited. The giddy anticipation she had once experienced had recently been invaded by an intermingling of doubts and insomnia, making excitement a far distant feeling. Every time she had slowed her thoughts enough to perhaps sleep, another worry would arrive to distract her. This was the day she should be looking forward to more than any other, but all she could feel was uncertainty. Her family, excluding Al, all seemed beyond jubilant about it. As each day passed, one more enthusiastic thought would somehow be turned into a panic inducing horror. The night before was the very worst she had experienced.
Around midnight Rose had fussed over whether she should wear her robes or not. She got out of bed to look them over, and decided that shed not be out of place wearing them once on the train. At two thirty-five she decid

Art is eternal!
Its brief, un!
This argument took place between a Mr. Jebidiah Iwa and Mr. Isaiah Akasuna. The men had started arguing down by the river that flowed through their part of the Appalachian Mountains, arguing over the property line between their land. Iwa said that more than half the river was on his familys side, and Akasuna argued the same thing. Iwa eventually brought up the clay his family liked to wrap around their explosives that was found in the riverbed, which led to an art argument.

He groaned and flopped down onto the bed; this was frustrating as hell! It should not be this hard to shop for a lover; but than again, this was Sasori.
For the hundredth time, Deidara ran through the list of things hed given him in the past. Mostly it was just material for his puppets; and of course, last year hed bought a school girl uniform and worn it. He smiled. Sasori had really liked that, but if he did something like that again, it would all but cement the idea that he was Akasunas sex slave.
