"Why me, Sagey? What was so special about me?"
And Sage would always smile and say, "Because, you were different." or, "Because you have a fighting spirit." Or even, "Just because. I knew it would be the right choice." And Elizabeth would always give her a confused look. "That doesn't answer my question..." She'd always say. Then Sage would change the subject, or tell a joke. She would never be able to tell her the true reason she was picked. How long Sage had watched her from the observation window. How many times she saw her get defeated by EVERY opponent. All the insults Elizabeth had to deal with on a

It's sickly green, callused skin contains the horrific stench of the infectious spores that had physically and mentally corrupted it's host. Though they wander aimlessly in large masses, infecting anything deemed able to become infected; they are of a single mind... When large enough, they become a "Gravemind". There is no known treatment nor cure for their infection. The only solution is to burn the flood masses and make sure nothing, not even a single spore, can escape..."

He couldn't think where he might have left it; he'd looked everywhere he'd been, looked under all the beds, checked around to see if anyone had kicked it somewhere, but all for naught: it was gone.
Dejected, Death walked up the three flights to his floor and shambled down the hallway to his door.
He stopped, and slapped himself on the head. "What am I thinking?" he laughed. "I left it in the umbrella stand!
He unlocked the door and stepped into his ratty apartment.
He turned to the umbrella stand, but the scythe wasn't there.
Then he did a doubletake: Death's apartment was usually pretty bare(the

But I still have the right to dream out loud"
It taps into my subconscious like a needle to a balloon. One pop sends millions of thoughts, hopes, wishes, and desires spilling from my constantly ticking head.
There are distant memories of riding on a bus to nowhere, staring out at pastures that I would never touch. Pastures that I longed to get lost in and dwell inside of forever. I might chant a little or hover near a great fire. I might listen to the songs of crickets or make a few of my own to harmonize. The golden night with its silver moon and platinum stars would kiss my baby face. It would be Heaven o

Plucking the headphones out of her ears, she turned the volume up on her music player as loud as it could go. The music could be heard through the small room, and she spun the wires around her fingers.
"Around and around they go, where they stop, nobody--"
The buds whipped her fingers painfully, the length of the wires wrapped tightly around her hand.
"Go figure. Everything ends, doesn't it?"
She sighed, and as she got up off her bed, she noticed her phone on her nig

I've spent around 3-4 years hating myself for unknown causes. Sure, I could find many and list them up in a heartbeat. The thing is that I have spent my years deluding myself into believing them.

"Leave the district. Run off. Live in the woods. You and I, we could make it," says Gale.
I don't know how to respond. This idea is so preposterous.
"Let's try it," Gale begs.
"But what about the others? You know that Prim is a little duck afraid of her own shadow," I say.

Whilst his clothing twists and twirls swiftly under the forceful storm, he remains stationary.
