My name is Joshua Rains. What I do is something that you probably wouldn't believe or understand. I hunt down the paranormal and supernatural...and I police it. Note that I do not destroy it. Destroy is a last resort. Do you believe that just because something isn't normal or isn't human it deserves death? Of course not...they are living creatures like you and I. Indeed, some are evil and, in those cases, death is the only thing you can do...but isn't that the same with any criminal?
However, I didn't always think that way. Actually, I used to be very prejudice towards the supernatural and paranormal. I was one of the most feared monster slayers in America. You didn't know my name simply because I didn't want you to...it comes with the work...but I digress. I was responsible for the merciless murders of countless creatures and spirits in my time...until one month ago. What changed my opinion and views of monsters and the supernatural? I'll tell you.
I was 19 at the time. I was young an

The next day...
It was a beautiful Friday morning when Knuckles awoke to the sunlight shining in his face. He yawned and stretched before getting up,then walked to the bathroom. He rubbed his face as a sign that he was still tired and did not feel like getting up. But he did anyway,he turned the shower on and hopped in. Later he got out and went into the kitchen. He grabbed some milk and poured it in a cup. "Mmmm..ahhh." he said putting it down and looking at the TV. He was waiting for the weather to see what it would be like,but he already knew it would be a sunny day. He went to get dressed and brush his teeth. He grabbed his backpack and lunch and headed out the door of his house.

The young blue haired teenager heard and saw Amy coming his way while he was conversing with his brotherly friend, Miles Prower, or Tails. "Oh shoot, Tails! She's coming. . .

Momo sat up rubbing her head where she had hit it. Her jacket was now all wrinkled and was pushed up a bit. Exposing her white shirt underneath.
"I-I'm sorry," she sat up on her knees and started to collect her books and binders, "Are you okay?" she asked, "You're not hurt are you?"
She looked up to see a boy with white spiky hair and turquoise eyes. He was wearing the male student unofrom, grey pants and a grey jacket. When she looked at him, she saw him studying her, like she was an alien from another planet.
She blushed and looked away, standing up. "Well, I'm sorry for knocking you over," she said, not meeting his eyes, "I hope you're alright."
He didn't respond, but instead stood up, turned around and went inside the school. Momo just stood there, shocked and a little ticked off. Well, he could at least say something! She thought.

The Option."Why do you want that option?"The Option.3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
"Because I want to die, if you must know."
He wants it, so he can take it, tick the box for the final option.
He means it, he does, he doesn't care how much you scream "No!"
He wants the option, for when he is discarded like a broken toy,
That he can end his life, and stop all the hurt, stop living.
He no longer wants to be an emotionless decoy-
I no longer want to be tortured, in the land of the living.
See? He and I, finally agree, that it's what's best for us, for me,
Yes, we agree that I should die, although it is a bitter choice.
A bitter choice? But the prospect of leaving it all? Being free?
And that, is the appeal, it is what makes me agree with the voice.
We finally agree, that once everything is gone, and we're left to rot,
That we shall take the final option, it's what's best for us, for me.

I should have stopped her; I knew the disease was contagious. I should have kept her from going. We should have left when we found out about the disease. All the things we could have done, but didn't. It started with a few people, and it seemed like nothing, but soon it turned to hundreds, and then thousands. You couldn't walk along the streets without seeing someone deathly ill on the ground. There was nothing the doctors could do. They had to let the person suffer through the illness to death. And then one day, Korra didn't come home. I paced back and forth frantic, and the kids tried to comfort me while not showing their fear. Soon, we got a call from the hospital, and I thought it was Korra, saying she just had some other Avatar duties to attend to, but she would be home soon.

They needed as many yuans as they could get for anything that could keep them warm during the harsh winter nights.
Bolin taught his new found friend, Pabu, as he called him, some tricks and left a jar beside him. Most people walked by and ignored them, some nicer ones dropped a few yuans. Everytime one of these people came by, Bolin yelled "Thank you, kind sir!" in his high, squeaky voice. Mako sat there staring at the jar and folded his arms across his chest.
