"Rain, rain go away, come again some other day," my sister sang to herself as she stared out the large window, resting her head in her hands.
"Tillie, what are you doing?"
"I'm asking the rain to go away. I wanna go outside."
I smiled. "I don't know if that's going to work, little sis."
"But it hasta work, Alice! I wanna go to the playground," she pouted, turning around on the window seat to look at me.
Laughing, I sat down next to her and shook bleached white hair out of my eyes. "If Mom doesn't catch us, and you put your rain coat and boots on, then we can go anyway."
"Really?" she asked in astonishment, her blue eyes widening.
When I nodded she grinned, showing the gap in her where her front tooth was supposed to be, and clapped her hands.
I Am So SorryI promised youI Am So Sorry3 years ago in Horror More Like This
I know I did
I am so sorry
I failed you both
I did not keep that promise
I did not protect you
I did not chase away the monsters
I did not scare away the shadows
I did something wrong and only now regret it
I screamed as they said it was you who had to pay
I hugged you close
I said it was all going to be alight
I heard your please
I tried to stop it but could not
I let them change you
I watched you loose yourself
I watched you prowl and grunt
I watched you whimper and beg
I watched you killed
I watched them collect the remains
I wept and screamed
I let it all happen

On the Sea Beneath the SkyGolden flickers danced on the pale faces of the circle, hushed whispers wafting out from the gathering by the glowing coals. It was the third night of the coming-of-age, the no-longer-little ones from each of the surrounding tribes taken out together in the openness of the untamed world. There were a few in the group that stood out, discernible even in the thick coverings of the night. There was Jiu-yeil, son of the carpenters, impressive form already bulging with strength and muscle more fitting of a man twice his size. The brothers, Senniare and Elieten of cloth-maker, sat donned in simple but the finest of all their travelling robes. And very slightly apart from the throng of a dozen others was the quiet Meiella, orphaned as an infant, niece of medicine woman.On the Sea Beneath the Sky3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

His body's weight slowly began to bring Tod even more down the needle. As he got closer and slowed Sangre pulled up his head to see his fading eyes.
"Don't worry you won't die immediately. After all where is the fun in that?"
A soft moan came from Tod's lips as he barely had the strength to bring his left hand up and touch the needle. Sangre only laughed harder.
"I wouldn't try to break it- you would only die faster from blood lost. Besides- I want you around to see this."
Her sights suddenly set on Alice, who unconsciously jumped back.
"Alie.., moo-ova," Tod said barely above a whisper, trying to give her a chance to run.
Sangre suddenly looked back at Tod again, "well looks like someone still has a little fight in them. But you are going to die- you do not need to be the selfless hero. It is not the story Lord Death is going to hear when they bring back the body of his only child. He is not going to remember your courage when the God of Death learns h

They rained down from the sky in a burst of light, like shards of glass pouring down from the heavens. Supernovas blooming in the night sky, petals raining down onto the barren earth - angels, falling with their wings sheathed, glowing, as they glided down. We watched, starstruck, as the glow overtook us - we were mesmerized. We waited with bated breath as the meteors landed, the celestial light subsiding as dark forms started to pick themselves up from the dust.
They moved towards us with an otherworldly grace, their steps leaving no marks on the earth as they descended upon us. Frozen to our spots as they approached, our bodies simply unresponsive in their wake. We were paralyzed. They stretched out their wings, embracing us in a softness unimaginable - a polymerization of silky feathers made of pure light, like a soft touch of a rose petal - and suddenly, our eyes were opened. The world was the same, yet so new, as it was washed with a gl

A few weeks had past since Sakura and Haru began to go to the academy. And they were all in class where Stein was showing then how to properly dissect a bird (Bald Eagle) when a man walked through the door and the entire class hushed upon recognizing who it was. Alice was slightly confused from the silence due to the fact she was skimming through her notes. But only after Tod elbowed her she looked up and gave a confused expression.
Her father was dressed in a pin striped suit, was usual, and kept his hands in his pocket. All of the other students looked stunned seeing the Death Scythe.
"Sorry- Professor- I know it is not cool to interrupt your lesson and.., is that an eagle?"
"I wanted the students to learn a little of their nation's history."
Soul opened his mouth to say something about it being illegal, but decided against it due to the fact he would never listen.
"I have a message from Lord Death. He has called Tod and Alice to the Death Room."

A loud banging noise came to Tod's room- instantly shocking him awake.
"TOD- GET YOUR BUTT UP!" Shouted Alice angrily from the other side of the door.
He forced his eyes closed and covered his face with a pillow before yelling, "Go Away!"
Sleep still plagued him from the studying and the Son of Sam mission from the night before. So it did not take long for him to drift off again. But suddenly something forcefully landed on him- knocking all the air from his lungs and the pillow off his face.
His blue eyes were instantly met by Alice's peeved off glare, "come on! I am already dressed, your parents are calling us downstairs for breakfast, and I am not missing Stein's test!"
"We are not going to miss it! Now get off!" He was about to lay his head down when he heard the fatal words- but could not connect it to the action before it was too late.

It was cold. So cold in fact that one could see one's breath puff up into the air with every inhale and exhale. But it wasn't the time of year that caused this bitter cold. Oh no, it couldn't be blamed on something as simple as the weather.
No. It was the constant presence of the Dementors that made Azkaban one of the coldest places on the face of the earth. But it wasn't the natural cold that merely made your nose red and your skin freeze; it was the kind of cold that entered the heart and sucked everything inch of warmth from the soul. It was Hell.
Most people have the very wrong perception that Hell is a place where you burn- all fire and brimstone and a little cloven hoofed devil poking you with a pitchfork in your rear at random intervals for the rest of eternity- but this is a lie. Hell is far crueler than that and all the prisoners of Azkaban knew this, for they lived in the wretched place.

Really, I mean, you ever heard an interesting story that started on a sunny day with mild cloud cover around an hour or so before dinnertime?
Exactly. Moving on.
The air held a coldness that seeped through brick and stone. It crawled through flesh, freezing blood in icy veins, chilling bones like a slithering ghost in the blackness.
...but not so cold that it was a snow-storm. Cotton candy floating down from an inky sky, shining like diamond eyes in the starlight as soft flakes swirl and dance on feather-light feet in the breeze...
Not quite the image we're looking for.
Rain lashed from the depths of the cruel heavens, wind whipping from the starless smothering blanket above. Thunder roared in fury, cracking alongside his bright lover as she streaked her fire to the lonely earth.

Captain Hook: Redemption
Sally McCoy had been a serving maid in the Gray household for almost 10 years, and in her time there she had seen and heard plenty of strange things. But as she left Wendy Darling in the parlor to fetch her Mistress, the maid had to say that this newest turn of events took the number one spot for absurd happenings. The whole situation was absolutely preposterous!
The young Miss Darling couldn't be right; surely she must have been mistaken. . . She had to be. Alexandra Mercedes Gray had never in her life cared for anyone but herself, and now she was 'supposedly' taking on a student, and a young and pretty one at that?
No. Sally decided that the girl was confused, or knowing her luck, this Miss Darling might even be a little barmy! Or perhaps she had merely told the coachman the wrong address? That was it! She must have had the wrong address!
With this happy idea in mind Sally turned to go back into the parlor and tell the young woman

Loki sat in his room, lying down but not sleeping. Thinking of his brother, thinking of Tony...
" I can't believe what's happened.." It was cold in his room, and dark, but he liked it that way, it matched how he felt.. Now that he was back on Earth, without trying to attack it and not locked up in Tony's tower, he found it was much like Asgard, surrounded by people but still utterly alone...
When he had been young whenever he'd had a nightmare, he'd never gone to his parents room. Instead, when he had been afraid, he fled to Thor's room.
To Thor's always awaiting arms... " Why must the world clutter, why must love wither? If only things could ...- beautiful things, could last forever..."
Outside his door, he heard footsteps, and a sliver of light widened through the room. Loki sat up in his bed.
" Brother? Do you still sleep?"
" Come in..." he choked out, finally glad to have some company.

"Have you even thought of the consequences? You know, like, what could happen?"
"Uh yeah, but I don't really think there's anything we can do to avoid that.

Maka sighed. Soul had always known what to say. She continued putting on her jean shorts, cute, purple, ruffled top, curling her hair, and putting a bit of makeup on. Once she was finished she turned to Soul in his cool T-shirt and khakis and melted in his gaze. He walked over to her, putting his hands on her shoulders.
"It'll be a fun time. Try not to think about it too much," Soul said as he gave her a crooked smile.

Soul entered the apartment with a huge sigh. He had had a long day of dealing with feelings he had never felt before. He had been thinking about them for a long time, but it was to much and to hard to think about at the moment.
He walked into the living room expecting to see his meister reading or watching a movie. Instead, he found her asleep on the couch in a tank top that was riding up almost to showing her bra. Her feet were propped up on the arm of the couch making her skirt slide up with her book resting open on her chest.
He stopped in his tracks to stare at the sleeping girl. Did she really have to tempt him so bad? "You don't see me as a guy do you?" he said, leaning over her. Their faces so close that his hair brushed her face.
"Hey Maka, wake up," he said, poking her cheek, "Your going to get sick if you sleep her with your stomach exposed."

They Say I'm GuiltyOf the nearly eighty female prisoners that had answered my request, I had narrowed my choices down to two of them. The first was a voluptuous, porcelain-skinned brunette that would make my brother drool in seconds. The second was a golden-haired, frail little piece of work, and normally I would have dismissed her during the first round of eliminations, but something kept her there. Maybe it was the way she stared at me with her venomous green eyes, but I couldn't be sure. In any case, I had my two choices set before me, each isolated in separate cells on opposite ends of the jail so that I might observe them more personally.They Say I'm Guilty3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

He coughed, desperately trying to breath. I stared at him for what seemed to last far more than the tiny moment I had with him. His eyes weren't fixed on me, they were shut tight, looking pained. My expression weakened from a glare to a look of pity. How could I hurt him?

A leaf-fall glow settled on the awakening forest clearing, a cerulean lake glistening before it. The sun grew the strength to dry the morning dew on the flattened grass where generations of paws have done their duties and shared tongues and fought bloodthirsty battles. Little sleepy bodies began to appear from their dens as the day began. Distant gray clouds rumbled from afar, but showed no threat of ruining the sun's bright hold where the feline campgrounds lay. A lithe white cat gently scrambled up to the Highrock, his leaf-green eyes gazing around the clearing as more cats began to slowly pour their way into the open. Whiteleaf waited a while longer to see some beginning their daily duties around the camp. It seemed as if nothing had gone wrong. But what the morning light brought to him made his heart clench. Scattered blood from his clan mates lay on the grass, a reminder of what had really occurred the night before. FireClan had been attacked last nig
