It didn't take him much time to realize his legs were no longer of service. Opheli didn't know the dangers of lurking in the warm waters near the coast of South Korea, despite his mother and father's warnings to not venture out into the deep sea. He was angry when he made that poor decision. His parents had told him to stay away from the tides while he watched his peers diving and exploring the open beach.
He was tired of it. Tired of his parents keeping him from doing what he was interested in. Why could everyone else do what they pleased but he? Without thinking, he ran into the ocean and dove in, stripping himself of his garments in the p

Darkness...that was all he could see. It all happened so fast, so sudden, but yet he fell into the trap. Who was his kidnapper? What was the trap? It all started when the young prince was out in front of his castle, on his personal beach taking a stroll. He had a lot to think about, since his marriage was to be the next day.
At the same time, the prince remembered meeting a beautiful young girl around his age with long dirty blond hair and aqua colored eyes in the same spot he was. Her long hair fanned out as she laid there in silence. It seemed as if the young girl was washed up and had no place to go. He took her in, cared for her, even al

Skye took out his cell phone from his pocket to check the time.
"5:30..." He read to himself.
"It should be open," the young blonde said as he turned to the boy next to him.
"Good..." Cyan said as he rubbed his stomach. Skye stared at the smaller boy; he was developing a habit of doing this. He couldn't help himself, he was just so fascinated with the boy from the sea.
The sun was getting lower in the sky, causing the leaves from the tree in Skye's front yard to scatter shadows all over Cyan. He couldn't stop himself from thinking about how lovely Cyan looked at this moment. Skye's mind then focused on Cyan's new shirt.

The coral drifted lazily on the current as the slight sunlight danced on the sandy floor. It was a nice calm day in the village, Marissa's mother was taking advantage of the calm tide and was off to look for new shells that she could weave into her jewellery. Marissa's father was doing his usual day pf fishing. Marissa sighed as she looked outside the small window of her room. Everyone seemed to be enjoying the weather but her. She was still too young to go outside alone. Being only four years old really sucked, she thought spitefully. It's not like anything would happen if she just took a tiny swim around the reef right?

Morning [Loki x Reader (pt18)]It took you awhile to get up that morning, because it took awhile to get to sleep the night before. Loki's voice and face haunted you. Visions of who you knew him as blurred disturbingly with the dark, threatening image of his face in his cell. His cage. He was an animal. He was a wolf.

It was a long swim towards this shore I had never been to. The water was warm here,not as warm as Maui but warm enough where I didn't have to bite my lip and close my eyes to get through it.
I cant tell you why I left the Hawaiian islands for the shores of Malibu California,but here I was pulling myself out of the sea and onto its sandy beach.
It was dark,past midnight perhaps,but not pitch. There was a full moon above me and for that I was grateful. One doesn't want to beach oneself in a strange place without no light whatsoever in case one needed an escape route.

To strange men in my room
The noises that they made
Pushed out the echoes of you
Deleted you from my memory
She cries, indeed
Sing songs I'll never hear
Didn't mean to impede
The moon is young, the night is cold
The tears stained on my face
I do not worry, I keep my head
I know a secret place
Let's pick blackberries tonight
I hear they're nice and fresh
I'll savor them tomorrow
After they stain my flesh
Some of them are hard to reach
I stick my arm through a dangerous branch
The berry juice runs down my leg
I don't want it to be stanched
The berries are juicy
Metallically sting my tongue

RitualBodies sway to a primitive danceRitual2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Beat out on low drums and
Carried off by the wind
As we gather 'round the fire
Losing ourselves to a rhythm
Older than our ancestors
Embedded within our minds
By heavily guarded instincts
We fall victim to our movement
Challenging the world to break us
Swaying in lustful, lethal grace
Bowing down before the skies
The drums harmonizing with our hearts
In a mad, constant boom, Boom, BOOM
Filling our lungs with excitement and
Feeling sound flood our veins
The power of this ancient ritual
Forces us to succumb to its will
And bow again to the skies
As embers race over our heads

really one village but it was modeled after a compass, so there was North, South, East,

Adam woke again, and for a brief moment wondered if everything he'd experienced had been some kind of awful dream. But that hopeful illusion broke as once again he felt the weak mana that didn't belong in the world of Symphonia still fresh with the germination of a new Mana Tree. He muttered a short curse under his breath and sat up, blinking as he found himself in a large and comfortable bed in a different room.
The room was neatly decorated and had several picture frames that all were faced down or away for some reason, set on dressers and a bedside table. Adam tilted his head, puzzled, before straightening a little further at the realization of something else. The room's aura; it was a steady stream of love-joy-love-fondness-love-nostalgia-love-wistful sadness-love-love-love. So much love and gentleness radiated from the room, the sheets on
