The sight of that rose was bothering Hanana all that night.
When the petal had fallen, she'd swiftly pulled her hand back, looking behind her as if expecting Yukiki to be right behind her. Ready to say that she hadn't touched it, she didn't make the petal fall. A moment later she'd realized how irrational that was. Why would the sight of a petal falling unnerve her so much?
It was a simple thing, she'd seen it happen to her own flowers enough times back home, but somehow, seeing this rose lose a petal sent a wave of dread through her.
Unable to sleep, she rolled onto her side, hugging the pillow to her chest. What am I supposed to do? Am I just being silly?
After another hour or so of tossing and turning, trying to dispel that accursed rose from her mind, she fell asleep. She wouldn't be able to remember her dreams the next morning, but later she would distinctly remember an image of a wilted, dead rose.
The next few days weren't easy on Yukiki's mind, even

Something's not right...
Hanana's hand strayed again to the rose in her hair as she bit at her lip. Alright, fine, so the villagers wouldn't normally see a flower at this time of year. But why would the sight of a simple rose make that woman so nervous? Surprised, she understood. But that definitely wasn't mere surprise...
"You shouldn't go the forest anymore."
"What?" Hanana lifted her head, meeting both her sisters'gazes.
"We could see which direction you'd come from just a little while ago," Aruru told her. She frowned, folding her arms. "I didn't want to think of it, but..."
Hanana waved a hand in front of her chest, shaking her head slightly. "Oh, no, don't worry!" she said, knowing immediately what they were thinking of. A somewhat-tired smile crossed her face as she kept toying with the rose. "It's not as you think it is, honest. There's no demon in there, and--"
Eruru cut her off. "If you're telling the truth," she started, tilting her head a bit as she mul

I smiled as our small town seemed to be filled with color for a festive holiday, though it wasn't very famous. It was called the Festival of Fools. It was basically a very odd holiday that was filled with drunks and ugly people who were crowned king and where everything was basically the opposite of what it normally is. I didn't usually care for the alcoholic side of things but I did enjoy all the colorful decorations as well as the music and dancing including the most popular song called "Topsy Turvy".
I continued to read as I walked through the town as some of the gypsies were setting up but they were kind enough to try and avoid bumping into me. As I was just about to exit the town square, I bumped right into a gypsy man, knocking both of us over from the force of it. He scrambled to his feet, his costume jingling with all the bells on it. "My sincerest apologies, mademoiselle! I was too preoccupied with the day's festivities to watch where I was going," he s

He comes back a month later,

Sometimes I miss home,

without twenty guests a day,
without fear for his safety.
He doesn't smell of fish now -
which maybe is a good thing -

No one hears a woman.
No one sees a woman.
A woman has nothing to say.
I am a woman,
But you took this woman
and gave her words,
and now they listen to me
because they're listening to you.
Now they see,
now they hear
this woman -
But it is not me,
it is you they listen to,
and I'm still a woman,
speechless and unheard.
I say what you tell me,
but cannot speak my heart,
and when they see me
they don't see me at all.
Lord, give me the strength
to submit to your will,
to do and to say
what YOU want me to.
For though they don't see
and though they don't hear,
though I'm only a vessel,
YOU care for me.
You hear this woman.
You see this woman.
You hear my heart's desires.
I am a woman

I could feel her pain, the desperation and anguish of losing her friends. It made my blood race with anger. her voice full of pain and hopelessness seemed to echo and resound through my thoughts. I gritted my teeth and held a hand to my head. It hurt to know the pain she was enduring.
My brother rested a gentle hand on my shoulder. "Brother, are you ill?"
I shook my head. "No." I growled. "But I will feel better once I spill Immortus's blood over the desolate place he calls his planet."
Thor looked concerned. "Do not let your rage consume you, Loki. It shall be your downfall."
I brushed away his hand. "If your precious Jane was in the clasp of the cursed souls which inhabit that place, would you not feel the same rage as I?"
We were on Asgard, having being summoned there through the bi-frost in order to journey to the depths of space, to that strange place where the Chutari dwelled.

Loki was getting used the shivers now. They were still unpleasant, but he could stand during them now. He rocked on his heels as another fit of the shakes subsided. What could he do? Thor wouldn't listen, you were gone, he couldn't leave this room. He paced as he regained control of his body.
Heimdall would be of no help. Besides Loki hated that man, he would never ask for his help. Thor had already decided to be useless. Odin didn't trust him and therefore wouldn't help him. He was alone.
Loki sunk into a chair as this crushing realization set in. He was alone. He was helpless. He was hurting. And he would not be able to solve this by himself.

Not surprised by his lover's sarcastic tone, Loki carted his long pale fingers through the dark hair with a small smile. "Thor will listen but you know very well he's an oaf and you'll have to get straight to the point. As for Fenrir's room leave that to me."
Tony sighed heavily, but knew there was no point in arguing. Just that little smile Loki gave him was enough to make him want to do anything, even stupid things to make the demi-god happy. "All right, I'll talk to him. But if he hits me, I swear to God I will ride you until you can't sit down."
Loki's smile didn't falter in the least. "You fail to realize that if it comes to me my brother will do all in his power to make sure I am happy. If I am happy with you-which I am-he will see light." Loki smiled.
He was not going to enjoy this.
Error in Reading the BibleWhere do errors arise in biblical interpretation?Error in Reading the Bible4 years ago in Philosophical More Like This
The first is misreading the text, the second is misunderstanding the context, and the third is not reading that section in light of the whole of that section.
The fourth is forgetting who it addresses--that is to say (allegorically) people of a certain heart or disposition.
The fifth is seeing these words distinct from a life that has been lived.
The sixth is to see the Old Testament without considering and making it separate from Wisdom, Proverbs, and Ecclesiastes, and to see the New as separate from Christ's example.
The seventh is to see the Old Testament radically distinct from the New--what does Christ cast aside, what does He fulfill, and what does He do in His life?

They act best friends forever
Yet friendships what they lack.
A lot of girls would give
Anything to be them
But all you have to do is look
And then you'll truly see them.
Cause with those girls, those girls
They say their all best friends.
But with those girls, those girls
Their friendships always end.
And it's those girls
Who will never, never know
Just what it's like
To be free.
I know what they think of me
They think that I'm insane.
Cause I don't want to be them
Don't want to feel that pain.
They give me their evil eyes
But I don't really care.
They do all these horrible things
All I can do is stare.
Yes it's those girls, those girls
They'll say their your friend to.
But it's those girls, those girls
I know what they really say about you.
And it's those girls
Who will never, never know
Just what it's like
To be free
And their the ones who'll probably be
Pregnant at sixteen.
If that's the price you have to pay

Loki mulled the name over in his head.
"Philip. I like it. Has a nice ring to it." Loki smiled. Philip Stark or Philip Laufeyson? Well technically it would have to be Lokison or Tonyson. Anthonyson maybe. No, Starkson could work better. Loki ran the names through his head and threw his hands in the air giving up.

I think we all pretend that it's ages away, or at times even forget that it exists. I certainly didn't expect it, even though I'd known a few people who someday just had to go. I never tried to ask what was at the Last Stop, never wondered about those who continued after I got off. Maybe because, like everyone else, I already knew, and just wanted to keep the real knowledge as far away as possible, not allowing it to seep in.

She'd been there for three days total before he suddenly realized something: not once had she complained of hunger. He hadn't needed to eat since the enchantment (something he'd only discovered after the shock had mostly wore off a few days later, and he realized that not once did he feel hungry. When he tried to make himself eat something, he'd found that he had no appetite. He supposed it did make a sort of sense...), so it had almost completely slipped his mind that his...guest would need to.
But she hasn't complained once, he thought. And he hadn't heard her stomach growling, so it couldn't be that she was too nice to speak up...though he didn't think he'd put it past her. Maybe this piece of the land had another enchantment on it, one that completely got rid of one's need for food.

Lately my brain had been lacking focus and I had become victim to both artist and writer's block.
