The sun was high in the sky, showering the city of Tenochtitlan with golden rays of heat and making it nearly impossible to endure the tiresome arithmetic lessons this early afternoon.
Chicomeacatl wasn’t listening to the instructor anymore, anyway, not since he’d discovered the praying mantis right below the open window he was sitting next to.
It had taken him a while to realize the large predator for what it was. Camouflaged as a dry leaf, it lurked among the foliage, shifting with the gentle breeze and patiently waiting for its prey.
The object of its desire was a slender lizard that bustled over the ground, looking for smaller insects and utterly unaware of the skulking danger above. In fact, the lizard’s persistent search for food drove it closer and closer to its mortal enemy, almost right beneath the mantis’s calculated position.
Body tensed in excitement and fascination, Chicomeacatl held his breath and didn’t dare to exhale, as if the slightest mo

Things moved slowly from then on. No shinnigami, and extra Death Note to worry about, dead ends everywhere. Though there was something to look forward to. L’s ‘family’ were coming tomorrow, Mello, Near and Matt. Three boys who you were excited to meet. Three boys who were going to help with the investigation. Three boys who were going to help L get back on his feet.
You stepped out of the steamy bathroom and into the bedroom that you and L now shared. L was cooped on the couch, going over yet another paper of the investigation. You walked over to the dresser, grabbed some clothes and let the towel fall from you. You felt comfortable doing this around L since he almost never noticed it.
“Excited?” You asked shrugging on a shirt.
“About what exactly?” L asked. “You sometimes need to be more pacific (name).”
You rolled your eyes and jumped around whilst you tried to put on your pants. “The boys. What else would I be talking about

Climbing through the woods like a deer is not how Lucia Chamber enjoyed to spend the day. It actually wasn't how she had wanted to spend the last three days, but when the apocalypse is suddenly thrust upon your lap, there isn't much one can do about it.

Then she reached into her pocket making sure her 9mm. hand gun was stored safely. You never wanted something to get worse in a bad situation.

Sonic looked for someway out of this place and remembered he had a cell phone in his backpack-but where was his backpack?

One of Beauty, one of fragility
I was afraid to pick this rose
for fear of breaking its stem
or getting hurt by its small thorns
It swayed gently in the breeze
Always emitting joy and sweetness
I will forever miss this rose
For I have seen it wilt and die...
I used to watch this rose, protect it
I used to love this rose, I cherished it
I used to fear this rose, but fear FOR it
not of it
I used to cry over this rose, for it is no more
Now I have no tears left to cry
For love is like a Rose, it's beautiful but sometimes it hurts.
I saw a new rose, more wild than the last
I saw a new rose, more free than the last
I saw this new rose, and I felt...
That I had to pick this rose
Regardless of its thorns
For I have seen a rose wilt and die
This new rose had more thorns than the last
But that did not affect my feelings
This rose was harder to touch than the last
But I did not care
For I now knew that I loved this rose
It swayed with the wind

Well, "love" is what we give, and "love" is what we get,
So I would have to say, were quite a happy set.
Our intuitions off, we love each-other still,
"Ego" or else "We go"? let's be sure to make this clear
I'm doing this all for you; "I'm doing this all for me"?
Dare say that about our love, and mister, I'll have to do away with you
Love or self, still if you choose , I and you have naught to lose,
In the end, were still just fine to keep smiling all the time.
If this world's a loveless one, and were to keep on living on,
Then where it is that you must be, is anywhere but here with me.
So then, I wonder is your choice all up to this:
Are you choosing with your "egoselfishness"?
"Love" is what so captivates us, yet this "love" at times leads to loathing.
It's a choice to be made as a pair, but i

While trudging through the woods, it was very quiet. Only the faint sounds of shoes stepping on fallen branches and dead leaves. Nothing was really surprising; no walkers, no animals and no change of scenery.
As Lucia walked, keeping her slugger close, she felt her stomach start to growl. Ah fuck. She thought. If she was getting hungry she wouldn't be able to keep up her strength and that would prove fatal. She fiddled through her open pockets but only found a energy bar wrapper. Tossing it to the ground, frustrated, she tried not to focus on her roaring stomach. Maybe the hunger would go away once her stomach realized it wasn't getting anything to eat anytime soon. Of course, the human body doesn't work that way. Even if the world has gone to shit, you'll still be h

That’s what you were doing, you were observing. Let no man/woman tell you otherwise, you were observing! At least that’s what you told yourself as you snuck around the library each lunch, or the study hall, or any other room that the subject of your observations just so happened to be.
After about two months of this consistent ‘observing’ you have deduced the following things about the subject. 1) He really loved his toys, 2) he chooses to be antisocial so he can have time with his toys, and 3) he was a very habitual person. Unfortunately, these observations had been made prior to your two months of sneaking around. So basically, two months of observations had brought you nothing.
