On my way homeBy Romy LaraOn my way home3 years ago in Stories & Vignettes More Like This
I exit the studio, sighing at the sight of the sun quietly hiding behind the trees and buildings. Turn to the right and keep walking. Cars are passing by, people in black suits get out from the nearest buildings; none of them care about their surroundings. I lift up my head and notice in big steel-letters the name of the company that owns that peculiar orange building in the corner of the street. It's the first time I see it. The sky is painted blue with some dabs of gray, just as if somehow the color of the concrete street had been absorbed by the clouds.
Behind me there's a couple discussing something about a house. She doesn't sound happy. And he's just getting mad. She shouts and speeds up, him trying to catch up with her, but it's futile. She is a very good runner despite her heels. The man glances at me. I toy with the white cable of my earphones and pretend I didn't hear anything. I pass him. He just stands there. I wonder what would he do now. But I have no time to

-¡Esto es inaceptable, José Manuel, no podemos permitirlo!
-¡¿Cómo se te pudo pasar por la cabeza, siquiera, semejante locura?!
-No es algo propio de una nación como la nuestra y de todas las cosas estúpidas que has hecho ¡Esta es la peor!
-¿Te imaginas el escándalo que esto crearía si cae en manos equivocadas? ¡¿Lo pensaste alguna vez tan sólo?!
No. Esa era la única respuesta que podía darles en el estado en el que me encontraba al ver aquella fotografía entre sus manos, mientras el Jefe y su secretaria me miraban sin saber bien cómo tratar con ello. Y de hecho, siquiera yo sabía bien cómo reaccionar.
Me había imaginado a veces cómo sería si ellos descubrieran algo así, si descubrieran lo que sucedía entre los demás países y yo (o algunos de ellos) pero...nunca creí que lleg

After a chaotic sleep and a chaotic morning, everyone was on the road again, piled into various cars. You were with Toni, Mali and Lovi this time around, and you made sure they didn’t stop for naps by bickering with Lovi the whole way there.
“Will you shut up?!” Mali complained from the front seat.
You and Lovi temporarily stopped jabbing each other literally and figuratively, exchanging a look.
It continued for the next hour, with Toni and Mali singing in Spanish along with the radio to try and drown out the increasingly loud, friendly cursing that was taking place behind them.
“We’re gonna be last,” You mumbled to Lovi after you took a break.
“No shit,” He grumbled. “Toni’s so slow, a stupid turtle could get to Potato-land from Italy faster than he does.”
“Yeah, Mali’s always late for everything to,” You replied with a huff. Apparently it took longer than you thought to get there, be

You tried to think happy thoughts, it was only two weeks, right? It'll be over in no time.
Your thoughts were certainly interrupted by the head counselor, Alfred.
"Welcome back dudes and dudettes to another Summer of Camp Hetalia!" His statement was followed by cheers of the girls and the boys. You just gave a roll of your (e/c) eyes. Idiots.

She raised her palms to the sky, fingers spread, and sunk her toes into the earth. Heat-filled particles of light warmed her face and the moist cool matter softened her toes. This was life and she relished in its glory.
Nature was her mother and the ruler of the cosmos was her father. She imagined herself as a tree, her feet diving down into the rich folds of the earth, planting their roots, while her fingers extended to the heavens forming into a million branches. Leaves and flowers exploded from her branches as they begged for the gift of light from the sun.
She walked in beauty. From where she stood, a gathering of red poppies reached to her gently brushing against her calf, begging to feel her touch. She leaned forward caressing the petals with the tips of her fingers and the flowers gently kissed her face in return. She laughed. She had always imagined that poppies would make for extremely faithful friends, providing every comfort and need in times of despair, but they would alway

Soon enough it was around ten o'clock, and I had found myself bored to death. I wasn't even in the mood to watch any more TV… I didn't really want to from the start. My mind was completely set on the whole 'hand-cuffed-with-my-crush' thing. I sighed out loudly.
"(name), sorry about that… Would you like to take a walk?"
"Wha- but… that's just embarrassing!"
"It'll be fine, just trust me, won't you?"
I let my eyes wander off to the blank walls of the room, but from the corner of my eye, I can see Arthur putting on a serious face. Surprised, I gaze into Arthur's eyes, and he remains still and silent. His eyes were green. Green like a tropical forest in utopia. Or maybe the green from a familiar fairytale I heard long ago about the Wizard of Oz… Either way, his eyes just mesmerize me, and as soon as his eyes lock onto yours, you can't simply look away.
"I suppose… Yeah, why not?"

"We're going to go see can town. If you don't go, they're probably going to continue having sloppy makeouts. Do you want that?" She reasoned, before thinking about the consequences. 'Maybe I shouldn't have said that," she thought afterwards.

Cobwebs of the Soul She picks the apples in orchard, in the garden of her mind. And they are red as mix of wine and blood in the crystal glass left for no one, under the light of an early twilight somewhere on the edge of the world. The black branches of trees sway toward her in slow wind, like the fingers of dead lovers, gentle and dry, quiet reminiscence of some other days, gone by. And the gray, dry grass bows while she walks.Cobwebs of the Soul4 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Cobwebs of the past is a name of the garden and she thinks of it, walking over the silver lake with water bitter and salty, where every drop is a memory and pain, every desire a crooked reflection of her own features. She moves between the gaps and holes of silence, where echoes of the voices in cacophony once stood and here and there, finds the bits of broken laughter and cut screams, picking them up, putting them away.

The day after tomorrow signaled the start of another school year for you. And honestly? You weren't all that excited, mostly because the majority of the people infesting your campus are bimbos, sly backstabbers, cocky jerks, or all three put together. Well, they weren't that bad, but for someone like you who tends to be a wallflower; everyday mingling with them is not just a walk in the park. But there are a few people you call your friends, and some others that you think are of sound mind.
You groaned. You were still cooped up in bed, with little to no plans of getting up. It was one of those things you cherished as summer is inevitably approaching to an end. But to your dismay, your favorite song started to play and your phone was vibrating like crazy. With difficulty, you cracked open an eye to look in the caller id to see who was calling you in the wee hours of daylight and found that it was your best friend, Arthur.

You were shoved into a house. For a murderer’s house, it was remarkably neat, and well-furnished. You didn’t know what to expect. A blood-spattered kitchen? Bodies scattered about the foyer? Then again, you decided that would be rather suspicious for someone who lived on such an open street as this guy seemed to.
Your eyes fell upon a newspaper, and you picked it up gingerly, looking up to see if the man would get her to drop it. He was busy hanging up his coat, and wiping his hands free of blood.
You scanned the headline, looking for the date. Berlitz snuffled around, not going more than a few feet away from you. Suddenly, you found it:
September 8, 1888.
You stared at it in disbelief, (e/c) eyes widening in total shock.
“What’s the matter, poppet?” You felt the man’s hot breath on the back of your neck, and you shivered, an action that made him chuckle. “Relax, I haven’t decided to kill you yet.”

Nyo se encontraba del otro lado del pasillo, saludándola con una mano en alto.
La pelirroja respondió con un ligero asentimiento de cabeza. Eso fue suficiente para que el chico supiera que podía acercarse. En cuestión de segundos se encontraba caminando junto a ella, hablándole de varias cosas a la vez.
Desdemona escuchaba sin inmutarse mucho. No solía ser el tipo de persona emocionalmente expresiva, pero le llamaba poderosamente la atención que el chico se hubiera encariñado tanto con ella en tan poco tiempo. No había hecho algo en particular para ganárselo, pero hasta cierto punto le agradaba: Nyo era un buen chico, no era molesto de escuchar, y sus galletas eran las mejores que había probado en a

One of those times was now, when he had to jump from the third floor into a Dumpster. Glass and garbage sliced him, but he tried not to think of that and jumped out, using the edge for leverage. He had been attending a banquet, but word got around that Arthur wasn't actually Reginald Simmons III, and guards were after him. His mask had worn thin at the party, but he still refused to take it off, lest he show his true identity.
A black figure flicked out from the rooftops, following Arthur. He supressed a groan. 'Great, more company.' He couldn't fire at it, he'd just be broadcasting his location to the guards. He turned out of the alleys he was running through and merged into the streams of people on the sidewalk. Arthur snatched a jacket tied loosely around someone's waist and zipped it up. He ducked into a secondhand store and k

Respire hondo y caminé al pórtico, un estúpido e ingenuo sentimiento sacudía cada parte de mi alborotado cerebro, lo que me obligó a abrir la boca, cuando no tenia "derecho" de hacerlo.

Son dos frases que escucho muy a menudo y que uso para identificarme completamente.
¿Quién soy? ¿Quién es mi verdadero yo?. He sufrido mucho a lo largo de toda mi vida, me duele recordar cada momento espantoso que he pasado de mi trágica existencia. Ser siempre la presa de las aves de rapiña que solo buscan sacarte lo que más pueden no es fácil de soportar.
La máscara que he llevado por mucho tiempo la traigo desde que quise engañarme, separarme de la realidad y dar esa sonrisa hipócrita que he llevado por siglos...
Me describen como risueño, atolondrado, divertido, el típico payaso del grupo. Más de una vez he pensado que lo soy. Aquellos personajes ocultan su verdadero yo con maquillaje, yo lo hago con una sonrisa y un comportamiento juguetón, mientras que por dentro lloro y no quisiera ver a nadie...

FingerprintsEllie's fingerprints are everywhere; I feel them on my skin, on the bed sheets and in her tantalizingly soft black hair when I run my fingers through it. I see them on homework assignments and her ribcage where all of the scars are. I hear them in the rain, the wind, the sun, and the pad of worn converse against linoleum floor, or my own lungs. I taste them in Carmel Frappuccino's-her favorite- against my lips. I smell them whenever she is remotely close; roses and vanilla, coconut shampoo. My mind spins, in a way that makes me exhausted because I can no longer imagine a world without her, and I ache when I'm reminded of her self destruction; that's almost every day when her mouth quivers into a smile and I see her happy.Fingerprints3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

However, that’s not the exciting news that awaited you (far from it, in fact).
No, you got some news from Lovi. You two had become rather good friends (or, at least as close as you could get with the bad-tempered Italian) and Lovi seemed keen to tell you something.
You were sitting on your computer, sipping hot chocolate and talking to Lovi when he suddenly stopped mid-sentence and exclaimed.
