-Pe toți, frate!
Discuția fu întreruptă de un zgomot de frâne scârțâind. Dintr-o mașină mică și neagră coborî Răzvan, salută politicos, după care se duse și dădu mâna cu fiecare dintre prietenii lui.
-Ce faci, băi? Nu te-am mai văzut de ceva vreme. Stai toată ziua cu Alexandra.
-N-o să se pună problemă de acuma, stați liniștiți.
Răzvan se uită în stânga, jos, clipi moale de câteva ori, după care forță un zâmbet:
-Nu știți? M-a părăsit săptămâna trecută. Voi ce mai faceți?

Half ?It is said that the piano reaches the human heart,Half ?5 years ago in Emotional More Like This
It is said that it's the only thing that keeps you alive, keeps you strong, keeps you together, keeps you from falling, keeps your heart from being alone and on top of all it keeps you safe.
And it's also said that when it's combined with his other half (each of us has hes own half, in their vision) their bond is so strong that you can never break it, not by words, not by hate and nor by things that you do..
I wonder, has it reached mine ?
Has it made me strong ?
Has it made me love again ?
Has it made me forget ?
And the one which I'm really curious about is: "Will it ever be the same, as you dreamt " ?
Should I be concerned about it ? - probably
Should I take care of myself ? - maybe
Should I tell her what she means for me ? - ??? unknown
And the answer to all of this is locked somewhere in your heart; probably waiting to burst out or just waiting for the right moment, probably. But I'm still going to laugh on it.

It blooms for you.
See my eyes strong and hazed
The snow compliments and treats them,
I follow your tracks wildly through the glistening wonderland
But it's like a maze in this blizzard in May
Can my heart feel for you, I'll breathe for it.
Too feel your warmth through the winters touch,
i wander hoping i dont fall.
Frozen in place.
My hand hangs frozen in awe.
are you searching for me?
Can you see through it?
This snow fall?

Butter's ears perked up in interest. Were her prayers finally to be answered? Was meeting this feral cat fate? To finally roam around Euteria without fear of her master following her or harming her was something she had been dreaming about. Since she was born her master would beat her, ranging from a single slap to a full fledged attack depended upon whether or not the master was in a good mood. This meant most of the beatings she received were as a result from something she did not do. She had not tried to escape before because she couldn’t bear to leave her mother and Scotch in such an awful place. Her mother had passed away in the last six months, and now the entire brunt of the beatings were inflicted on Butter. Butter had tried desperately to keep quiet so that her brother could liv

Her mother watched as the happy blonde girl gently plucked a blue rose, a rose which happens to be very rare.

"This is for you Mama!" A large grin plastered on her face.
Layla accepted her daughter's present with a loving smile and said,
"Thank you, Lucy. It's beautiful." Layla was used to her daughter giving her lovely roses, but she would always say a 'thank you', which pleased Lucy.
As Lucy was about to go back to plucking roses, her mother gently planted the blue rose in her daughter's hair.
"Now, it looks even more beautiful" This earned a giggle from Lucy.
"Thanks Mama!" The petite blonde girl ran back to the rose garden, happier than ever.
Her mother chuckled and walked back to mansion, wanting to make a quick snack for her daughter.
Lucy looked around curiously, bored of playing in the rose garden, and spotted 'The Forbi

"Hiroki, we're here!" Lucy pointed to the small building in front of her with the big letters 'Fairy Tail', but the 'L' was hanging upside down. The guild still had that warm welcoming feeling even if it did look old.
"So this is the infamous Fairy Tail?"
"C'mon, I'll introduce you to everyone!" Lucy grabbed Hiroki's wrist and pulled him inside the guild, leaving Natsu behind. The pink-haired boy folded his arms, getting more annoyed, but followed the two inside the guild.
"Everyone!" The blonde yelled, catching everyone's attention.
"I'd like to introduce my childhood friend." She nudged the mage beside her, showing it was his turn to talk.
"My name's Hiroki Kimura. It's nice to meet you all." He smiled, showing his perfect white teeth. "I'm hoping you'll let me join your guild; it'll be just for a while though."
Mira was the first one to walk over to us and greeted Hiroki.

A light winter breeze blew past Rainbow Dash, her mane lifting up. She waited for Soarin to come. They were supposed to go sledding today. She opened her mouth and blew out, a mist coming out. Today was a very special day.
Where is he? , Rainbow Dash thought.
And as if appearing by only her words, Soarin galloped toward her, snow spraying everywhere.
"Soarin!" she scolded as snow landed on her. She shook herself and the snow fell to the ground.
"Heh, sorry," Soarin grinned.
Rainbow Dash rolled her eyes. "You're late," she said, not wanting to let Soarin off so easily.
"Well, I was looking for a gift for you. Unless you don't want it?" He teased and lifted up a wrapped box.
Rainbow Dash brightened and her eyes lit up in the dim winter light. "Yes!"
"Here ya go...CATCH!" He threw the gift to her in an arc.
Rainbow Dash soared through the air, her wings unfurling, her mane blowing in the wind. She caught the present in her mouth. Landing on the snow with a thu

"EHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!?" She shouted.
A small 'WOW!' came from Lucy's bed, which caught all three of the mage's attention.
"This is getting better and better!" exclaimed Happy with a bucket full of popcorn.
'WAS HE THERE ALL THIS TIME!? AND HE DECIDED NOT TO DO ANYTHING!? HE'S GONNA FEEL MY WRATH AFTER THIS!' The blonde maiden screamed in her head, a scary aura surrounding her.
"Uhh... Should I even ask?..." asked Hiroki with an amused look on his face.
Lucy turned her attention back to Hiroki.
"H-Hiroki... Y-You just... T-To me..." She couldn't get the words out.
Hiroki just smiled at her and said,
"I love you, Lucy. I always have, and I always will."
Lucy was dumbstruck and frozen in her spot. It was like her brain wasn't working properly and she couldn't do anything.
Before she could reply, a fist landed on Hiroki's cheek, which caught him off guard and sent him flying back into Lucy's dresser.

Scotch puffed out his tail in anger.
“I said you are going the wrong way! Why won’t you listen to me!?”
Kokoro hushed him.
“Be patient, she has a reason for doing so.”
Iris stood up and turned towards the remaining twin.
“Your master has altered the surroundings to your house, the path in which you are used to has changed. The only way for us to find your sister is to follow this trail. It will take some patience but we have to keep moving to find her in time.”
Kokoro nodded and Iris fled towards the direction of the scent, the others running close behind her.
“What do you think he is doing to Butter?!” Scotch yelled out to Iris, but she only shook her head.
“I have no idea.” But she did know. She knew every little th

That was when she felt an arm on her waist pulling her closer. The Celestial mage fluttered her eyes open, thinking that the arm belonged to childhood friend Hiroki, but as she looked up to her companion sharing her bed, her eyes widened in horror.The Road To Love Chapter 74 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
It was her best friend/teammate/crush, Natsu Dragneel! Her face started heating up and her cheeks flushed to a bright red. She did the most reasonable thing a girl would do; she screamed and kicked him off the bed. He landed with 'thud'. Lucy looked down to see that the fire mage had landed on top of the sword requip mage; Natsu's back was on Hiroki's stomach. This had woken the sleeping sword requip mage and now there was a dark aura emitting from Hiroki.
"WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU DOING ON TOP OF ME!?" Hiroki pushed Natsu off and grabbed him by the collar. This made the pink-haired b

Soarin with the Rainbow chapter 10
Soarin trotted around nervously, treading a circle into the training field with his pacing. Twilight's habits were rubbing off on him. The elements were nowhere to be found. They all should be here by now. The trials would start soon, and Soarin knew that Spitfire would take every opportunity to thwart Rainbow and make sure the cyan Pegasus never joined the team. Ever since Rainbow, with Soarin by her side, confronted her at the last stunt show, Spitfire had refused to talk to either of them, which was making team practices hard. Even worse, for the past month she'd been actively trying to stop their meetings, refusing to give Soarin time off, and trying to override the trainers when they disputed that order. The fire-maned mare had told him, very pointedly, that she was not expecting any new members from this try-out. Spitfire was well known for going through with her threats, and Soarin was confused and worried. Spitfire's hate seemed to have sprung

A wave of emotions came over Hiroki. Confusion, shock, anger. Hiroki stormed towards the bed and pulled Lucy out of Natsu's grasp.
"Who is he?!" Hiroki shouted.
The fire mage groaned and rubbed his eyes.
"What's going on...?" He asked in a sleepy voice.
Natsu opened his eyes and glanced at Lucy, then at Hiroki and kept repeating it. He finally stopped and then sat in a slouchy position on the bed.
"Luce, do you know this guy?" Natsu asked rubbing his neck.
"Isn't that my line?" Hiroki said coldly. "Who is he and what was he doing in your bed"
"H-Hiroki, this is Natsu" said Lucy pointing at the pink-haired fire mage. "And, Natsu
this is Hiroki."
"About him in my bed... Well, you see-" started Lucy, but Natsu cut her off.
"What the hell is your problem? I'm Lucy's best friend and her teammate." He stated.
'That's all he thinks of me...?' the blonde maiden thought, frowning.
"Well it didn't look like it when you were being all cozy in bed together!" Hiroki raised his voice.
Chapter 3: CottoneseThe Demoni ran at Butter who stood her ground, bracing herself for impact. She planted her boots into the ground as the taller, stronger intruder crashed into her. Grabbing Butter's dress, the demon cat slammed her into the tree, causing a shower of leaves to fall over them as some birds squawked in annoyance, fleeing from their nests. Butter's lips curved up, baring her teeth as she puffed out her tail in animosity. She extended her claws and raised her arm, slicing across the Demoni's shoulder as a yelp escaped the demon cats' lips. Butter seized this opportunity, using the tree for leverage as she kicked her foot out and slammed it into the Demoni's stomach, flinging her into the dirt. The Demoni let out a hiss before bolting upwards and sprinting at Butter. Butter's cat-like instincts took over as the flame point jumped into the air right over the demon cat, whose momentum resulted in slamming face-first into the tree.Chapter 3: Cottonese3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This

Last summer, to be precise
We accidently met
And without meaning to
We disliked everything about the other
I wish I could say I'm big enough
To ignore you and the ugly things I say
Inside of my head
But I guess I'm too stubborn
I wish you could say you're big enough
To understand that you and I
Will never be okay
So let's just pretend that
You and I never met
I don't hate you
I just can't stand you
Nothing you say could change that
Our codes don't match, so to speak
No hard feelings, okay?

In the depth of Autumn,
Reflecting ocean pool, and
In the big red and white country.
"Marry me," he sighed
Bright emerald eyes
And his soft peach smile,
On his knee in the mud
holding my glove
And kissed my hand.
"Marry me, Sweetheart..." he soothed so sweet
His words-swarming bees-
Breathing on my neck.
I, weak like a blade of grass
In the wind.
Sensual and seductive sensations
Licking my chest and neck...
"Oh, Marry me, Honey, I love you..." He rubbed my shoulders
Kissing my nose like a child,
Holding a silver ring,
The solemn sweet silver sun shining
Placed upon the ring finger.
I lost air,
Grinning widely, wider than the moon.
Raining pour from my face
To the Soil.
He kissed my ear and
"Marry me, my darling, i love you..."

"Marry me..." I remember him saying.
Rain and blue moon, thunder
His smiling picture
"I'll be home, Sweetehart...I promise...."

'I'm such an idiot' I said in my head.
'But Natsu's an even bigger idiot for not noticing my feelings!' I yelled in my head.
I started walking faster just wanting to get home and scream into my pillow.
"Hey Lucy, have you told Natsu yet?" asked Mirajane, one of the few people I can talk to about my crush.
"Mira-san, do you have to bring that up now?" I asked trying to make sure no one was listening.
"Lucy, I think it's time you told him... If you don't, then someone might take him..." said Mira-san as she looked over at Lisanna, who was laughing with Natsu.
It had been a week since Lisanna came back. Everyone had thought she was dead but she had just gone to another world called Edolas.
"Mira-san, you know he doesn't feel the same way..." I responded sadly.
"Lucy, you'll never know unless you try!" Mira said trying to encourage me.
"I'm going home Mira-san." I said as I grabbed my bag and started walking away.
"Lucy....." I heard Mira-san say to herself.

A loud crash erupted, the sound of the peaceful water being pushed out of its safe abode.
A piercing tone called out to her, “Butter! Please come in the water with me!”
She instantly recognized the voice belonging to her twin brother Scotch. Her cat ears twitched from the annoyance of her brother disturbing her tranquility. She peered one of her eyes open to see him drenched in the crystal like waters of Euteria. She couldn’t resist as the urge overtook her and the lips upon her face curved into a smile, her unmistakable feline fangs exposing themselves. The saliva dried quickly in the morning air.
“You are so silly brother, you are a walking contradiction.” She said, her smile growing wider.

I dared dream to hold you,
to speak love to your perfect cherubim lips.
I desired to envelope you,
in our cover of night,
where love could blossom in dusk intimacy.
Where none could speak the names of treason we bore with shame.
and oh how I loved you,

and true love perished,

staring through a glass window,

So I followed,
down the rabbit hole,
to a winter wonderland,
full of new dangers,
and first romance.
I loved you still,
where love is innocent.
We were children,
yet none loved as strong,
and I was your kingdom,
where you clasped, fair, radiant,
none could tarnish the silver of your smile.
Heaven's jealousy, could not but overcome it's envious joy,
taking you away,

"Any Other Way"
It was six days after the tournament that I left early in the morning with Icemoon. I walked up to the roof with Garnet, who relieved Zilia of her night-long duty of watching over the Bell Dragon eggs. We were still trying to figure out something to do with them so they didn't have to be exposed. So far, there were no threats aimed at them, and there had been no signs of Steven since his obvious injury.
Ember had checked up on us several days before. He had stayed the night and we had spent some time with him before sending him off again. All he had learned about Steven was that he was in a bad condition. Ember also told us that fairies had been sent away several weeks before for spying in Besun's capital. We then spent those days awaiting their return with bated breath.
The day before, as well, Miplin had told me some important information that had sparked a bit of unease at
