*****SPOILERS ARE IN THIS CHAPTER!!!!*****
Chapter 5 - Checkmate
While traveling from one solar system to another, Lieutenant James Vega came to the conclusion that this would be the opportune moment to approach the Commander. He had questions brewing about the recent mission Nevada Shepard embarked on with her fellow Alliance officer. Although, it was hardly about the mission it was about their interactions.
The way Major Alenko idolized Shepard was becoming a nuisance and was causing the rivalry between them to brew. James didn't know how much longer he would be able to control his urges to settle things between them once and for all. The only thing holding him back was his devotion to the Commander. He wanted nothing more than to protect her but if she refused it if she desired somethin

a mere pile of dust and leaden colours
but oh, how he shone

and fools fall in love ;
twice he made you for a fool

he's a boy, just a boy
but stars have to burn to shine brighter,
and your artist heart melted
as the burning dust boy grew darker,

I heard myself let out a small whimper, my eyes fading back to blue as I desperately tried to pry his hands away from my neck. I looked up at him, pleadingly, my eyes filling with tears as I started feeling weak from the lack of oxygen. His expression looked surprised, and he slowly loosened his grip, allowing me to pull away. I breathed heavily, but stared straight up at him. “Can...I...have some blood?” I asked slowly, not used to having to talk. A look of disgust entered his features. “No, a filthy beast like you doesn’t deserve blood. You’re lucky I haven’t ended you,” he said, anger woven into his voice.
I reached up a hand and gently touched his cheek, his skin warm under my touch. “Please…,” I whispered, looking directly into his eyes. Something in his expression softened, and he moves his head over to the side, exposing his delicious neck to me. “Go ahead,” he said, then added, “But hurry up”.

Getting up I changed into the shorts, top and shoes, and then opened the door quietly and walked down the hallway to the door. There was no one around and I didnt want to wake up the whole house even though vampires couldnt sleep, I still didnt want to wake up the staff members, they worked hard enough as it is and even thought there wasnt many of them they still needed rest.
It was a beautiful morning and some rays of sunlight were coating the ground. The air was fresh and the birds were singing.

The next morning, you awoke under sheets of green and sunlight streaming through tall windows which allowed you view of the kingdoms around you and your own little homes.
Last night, Natasha came and knocked you out, dragging you back over to the castle as her brother requested. Which meant that Ivan did not forget who you were.
Sitting up, you rubbed your tired (e/c) eyes and cried out for someone,"H-hello...!? I-is anyone there...!?" There were footsteps in the hallway and the door opened up to Queen Elizabeta herself. She had gentle green eyes and beautiful long, brown hair.
She smiled sweetly at you and sat beside you in your bed,"Good morning miss ___________...King Ivan requested you for breakfast. You may borrow whatever you like in the dressers. I don't fit in those drab old things anyway."
Firstly, a Queen was referring to you as miss. Second, Ivan wanted to see you. "Thank you your majesty-"
"Please, there's no need to be so formal."

When you're black, people will hate you,
because you look ghetto, and uneducated.
But when you're white, people will hate you,
because you look racist, and stuck up, and unapproachable.
And when you're anything in between, people will hate you,
because you're different, but not different enough, and there's no one to stand up for you.
So actually, don't have skin.
2. Let other people decide who you spend the rest of your life with.
When you're gay, people will hate you,
because it's unnatural. You should have control over your mindset, and so should total strangers.
When you're transgender, people will hate you,
because you challenge their religion and deities don't make mistakes, so obviously you did.
Do I even have to explain this? It shouldn't be your own decision who you fall in love with.
Your emotional compatibility and well being don't matter at all.

During those boring mornings;
Laughing and talking, right until the end
Of the ringing of my first warning
I waltzed down the halls
Not a care in the world!
Only to hear the shrill calls
Of the 8:05 bell unfurl.
I rush at my locker
Shoving and pulling
Then I sprint like in soccer
Down the halls-Oh who am I fooling?
Day in and day out,
The bell yells at me so.
And right back at it I shout:
"Shut up! I know!"
I sit here in the office
Of the great dean of students.
I'm being stand-offish
As she asks "Why'd you do it?"
Well you see Mrs. Kaiser
It's quite a funny story.
I may be an early riser,
But I hate bells with a fury.

The vision was clear, Orianna was in the summoner platform, a circular stone base, with arcane symbols underneath her feet and stone steps down that led the way into the field. The sky had a few clouds and the breeze that came from the woods surrounding the battlefield contained something magical within, after all, the field was built in a place where the magical forces had more strength, and where magical battles of untold proportions where fought during the previous Runewars. Turning her head left, she could observe at close range there was the shop keeper, ready to serve the champions of the league, a small being, with an abundant yellowish beard that could almost touch the ground, and in its back, a tiny bag filled with equipment that seemed to be falling from it. It was curious to some of them, having participated in both sides of the battlefield, how the shop keepers looked identical, perhaps twin brothers. Following the sight to the right down the step

The orange sphere falls from the sky, bouncing against the ground only once before being grabbed in mid air. The player jumps from her spot, aiming towards the basket for another shot.
The ball misses completely, veering far to the left of the court as she chases after it. She pants, pushing herself to the limit in order to achieve her goal. She snatches the ball, dribbling it ever so carefully against imaginary foes as she goes towards her sweet spot. She jumps again, shooting with the utmost accuracy towards the basket.
The ball misses again, only this time by a few inches of the basket. It comes back to her, allowing her to give another shot in quick succession from the one before.
It falls through the net, bouncing a few times on the ground before rolling towards the grass. She walks towards it, bending down to pick it up from where it lay. She stared up at the basket before breaking out into a jog, dribbling the ball from

There's a saying that says that sometimes people don't reach out when they're hurting, that they cut themselves off, because they want to see who cares enough to tear down the walls and sweep them up into a hug that makes everything wrong just crumble away and makes everything right come from those arms. This is why people cut themselves off. They're challenging the world to show them they care. So what happens when nobody comes? When nobody can come? The despair closes in and you wonder why, God? Why when you say you love me, when you say you are my father and my husband and my lover and rock and protector and everything those arms represent, why don't you chase me?

Such great division,

Fractions to masses,

The eternal struggle,
