An object starts to vibrate loudly on the table and after a few seconds, it stops.
Who could possibly send me a text message? Surprised I stand up and walk to my middle-aged Nokia. I open the message and my mouth falls open of astonishment of what I just read.
"Hey. Could we talk? Greetings, Evan." it says. How did he get my number for God's sake?
I think for a moment. Should I answer it? Can it do any harm if I do? He only wants to talk and I know that most problems can be solved with talking, but I barely know him! In that case I don't owe him a conversation. But Siope asked me if I could give him a chance. But she didn't even know what happened Friday!
I sigh and open a new text message. "Yes, sure, but how did you get my number?" I write quickly. Almost immediately an answer returns. "Long story. At two o'clock at the lake?"
The lake. I think he means the same spot as where I met him. "Okay. See you then." I text back.
Two o'clock, that's in one hour. Ah well, it's Sunda

My name is morgon smith and this is my incredible true story. This is the story about what happened on one incredible summer.
It was a cool and crisp night and I was walking back from the local teen hang out which was a pizza shop near the center of town. My brown red hair flew into my face as the wind picked up. There were many shops down town and I passed a lot of them on my way home. In this small town there are normal just shops that were necessary to the people who lived in the town. But there are some shops that arent used by everyone like the skin care and beauty shop which sold lotions and stuff that makes people pretty or at least pretty in there minds. But out of all these shops there was one shop that no one not even adults went to.
This particular shop was called la magic. It had a lot of strange stuff in the shop like skulls. Kids my age and older made up stories about there being a witch in the shop and the witch likes to

We fell in love, got married, stayed together,

I can't promise you'll never cry, that you'll never be hurt, that I can defend you against everything and anything; because I can't. I can do my best, but I know that it will never be enough.

As you approached Hidan he yelled out to Deidara. "Hey man! Be careful, these people are actually a bit of a challenge! It's about fucking time, right!? Any way, get your ass over here and make this more interesting!" Hidan went back to fighting. He was so fast, like lightning, it made yo feel inferior. But you wouldn't accept that, you decided to jump right in.
You concentrated I to your genjutsu, you placed your bombs discreetly so no one would notice, then looked to Deidara. "You gonna help your friend?" You urged.
"As though you had room to talk, you've done nothing!" He ran forward, not noticing the bombs you had placed.
"I got you man!" Deidara came in contact with the rouges who were standing in the sidelines. With each touch, they exploded. Deidara was shocked, he didn't understand the bombs were DNA bombs. As soon as someone else's skin, DNA, or biochemical tissue touched the bomb, it was to explode.
Soon, the battle ended. Hidan thanked Deidara and hugged him. "Who's the girl

Fractured moonlight mixes with blood above me on the surface. The only sounds are the beating of my heart and the pounding of my head, and the slice across my arm is surprisingly painless. I succumb to the clutches of the water, letting it caress my face and sooth my aching body. I free my mind of the consequence and let the water take me. My white nightgown billows around me, flitting in and out of the cold shadows, a dove in the dark abyss of death and destruction. Terror is left on the surface, and right now, having escaped the claustrophobic death inside of the Titanic, I am free to die a peaceful death. Sempiternal peace in the midst of chaos.
Jewelry, luggage, clothing, and broken parts of the ship rain down around me, and stars flash before my eyes. Vivid memories form of the luxurious ship, the grand staircases, the wonderful food, the glorious privileges of first class.

His name was socks
His feet were as soft as rocks.
Because his nails would always
dig into my knees.
Especially when I didn't pay attention when he pleased.
He got so good along with the dogs
We started calling him the catdog.
One day he started to cough.
But I just thought well maybe
his throat was clogged.
He finally stopped coughing
on the fourth day.
I guess it was a coughing spell
but I really couldn't tell.
On the seventh day he started to not go in his litter box
but instead all over the place.
It was odd because he stopped eating
and he sleeping more than the usual.
My mom and I got even more worried and we took him to the vet.
I told myself it just couldn't be his time yet.
My mom insisted that it was true
that he wouldn't be around much due
to old age.
He was around thirteen and I was sixteen.
I held him tigher
because for some reason my heart felt lighter

But I was wrong

So I can let all the stress, pain, and hardships go.
It may only help for a little while,
But at least it relieves me for the time.
Don't look or stare, and please don't ask me if I'm okay.
Can't you see that I'm clearly not.
You DON'T have to make such a great deal about it.
Just give me the space I need to calm down.
If you don't like me or love me as my friends,
Than I don't want you to interupt my fit.
Just leave me alone,
And let me be a child for once.
I don't like the attention
And I don't particularly care for the crowd.
So I would like it very much if you'd let me be.
I know it's in the middle of school, and I shouldn't let my feelings run wild,
But I can't help it.
I have to let it out sometime.
So, thanks again, for your understanding. I appreciate it.
