Shana landed silently at the gates to her dark and desolate castle. It once had its shining grandeur, but during these dark times, the castle was a gloomy and terrifying looking place to be. With a smile, her wings faded to shadows before disappearing into her back once more. She closed her eyes and took in a deep breath of air.
"Home sweet home," she said to herself with a slight chuckle. There was a creaking as the iron gates opened by themselves. As she walked through the gateway, she found the courtyard completely empty. Like always. She crossed the grounds to the stairs and by the heavens were there a lot of stairs. As if it was walking on flat ground, she bounded up them with grace. She gently raked her fingers through her hair before she kicked open the heavy metal and wood doors. The sound of the doors hitting the walls was louder then thunder.

My body's covered in scars
Scars of hate
And scars of pain
I can feel the warmth of blood through the wounds

Each breath searing my weakened lungs
How have I been beaten?
Am I now done for?
But something feels different now
Something seems better
My wounds begin to heal
I feel my body start to mend

And above me is the answer
I see the faces of my guardians
My dear friends
Now I can feel my strength
I shall now rise again
This time I won't let enemies beat me
I will not fall again
SandblossomSakura walked into her small bathroom, it like the rest of her apartment was small, but that didn't matter, as long as she had a place to call home, she didn't care. Especially since she was only twelve, her parents died when she was four, so she was making it on her own, she had left the people taking care of her when she was five, (I know, but she was training to be a ninja, if someone is going to be a ninja someday, they can watch themselves) her parents had left all the money they had to her, but she deiced to save it, only using enough to buy a small apartment very cheap. She had a small bathroom that when you put in the toilet, missing a compartment into the top, a sink, which leaked regally, and a small shower, that barley spurts out water. There was barley room to move. The floor was made of cracked, missing tiles that probably started sterile white and are now a dull yellow, lilac wall paper that is dwindling a cracked mirror, and one light directly above the middle space.Sandblossom4 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
