Summer Vacation: Part 1Summer Vacation: Part 17 months ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
I woke up to a beam of sunlight striking my eye lids. I groaned as I shifted my body to my side. I blinked several times as my expectations of my eyesight began sharpening. I squinted my eyes at the alarm clock which identified that it was 10:15 a.m. It was the beginning of the weekend, Saturday. That disastrous place known at school ended 2 days ago. I wouldn't have to see the faces of those annoying classmates any longer. Summer vacation would seemingly be the same as the passed summers. All I would do is sleep in as well as avoid people as much as possible. I unhurriedly dragged myself out of bed and made my way to the bathroom to get freshened up.
As the lukewarm water fell from the shower head onto my shadowy brown hair, I speculated what I could possibly do the summer aside from being a pathetic couch potato. Though that was what U was most capable at. There were not many choices to make that avoided getting near people. I was out of options sadly...
As I walked out the bathro

I'm so dumb...
I should have just told you
What I lost,
Was that silver locket!
Now it's gone,
But I guess it doesn't matter...
When I just...
Just had you there!
Oh, I just had you there with me, Marshall Lee...
If you're even my friend...
What am I to you?
Am I a joke, your friend, or your lover?
What am I to you?
Do you look down on me 'cause I'm younger?
Do you think that I don't understand
I just wanted us together and to play as a band
Last night was the most fun I've ever had
I even liked it when my own boyfriend would get mad,
Oh, you, a-a-a-a-are my best friend in the world.
You a-a-a-a-are my best friend in the world.
And that's ri-i-i-i-ight
I'm talking about the one that I love.
And Gumball and Cake,
I wanna sing a song to you and I refuse to make it fake.

*Author's Note* I changed "Passing out" to just falling onto his lap. Makes the story easier for me to tell ONWARD TO THE STORY!!
Marshall tried to pull Fiona off but she wouldn't budge,"Non, dun move guy. I hurt too much in my gut." She whined gripping him tightly. She truly did not feel well and Marshall could see this.
"Fi, you got any Ginger soda?"
"What? Oh (groan) yea, Cake said if I ever got a tummy ache it would help." She looked up at his face, she did not look, or feel, very well.
"Do you think you could let go of me long enough to grab a glass of that ginger junk?"
"o-okay, just hurry back." I should've never eaten that crummy apple, she thought. Fiona apprehensively let go of Marshall, she really didn't want to let go but if he was getting something to make her feel better than she'll be willing to let him go for at least a couple of minutes.
Marshall handed her the glass and set it down on the table when she was done with it, for now.

I wear so many they're all so heavy
They hurt my back and strain my neck
But matters not any pain I feel
Layer them on, more masks to wear
I don't care
I dance through the grey ballroom
Across this ugly stage of living and life
I look so beautiful to all my onlookers
My masks are all they see tonight
But that's alright
For one I met, I tried to show, one dancer I felt was equal to me
Together we danced the salsa and a brief tango
And in some moment of passion, I lost my mind
I started shedding masks along the floor
Like a fool
This masquerade has gone on too long
Eighteen years of dancing to boring songs
I can see through all their masks, as I swayed on by
But just this once, I wanted to show what I held inside
Tears I cried
Off came my mask of steel that everyone saw
I showed her that I wasn't impervious to pain
I wanted to be human, but it hurt to be such
So I became this ugly Golem that no one could harm
I left it behind
Next were the scarves I wore to lure others in

Tags, rags, and shopping bags, abandoned empty Krylon cans
Tables and fixtures in disrepair, nature taking back man's attempt to control her.
A bird's nest with three hungry chicks crying for breakfast.
The only light in this three story edifice is natural light and burned out hanging lamps swinging in place by a gnawed power cord.
Broken glass and rubble span the molding thatched and frayed nylon office carpet, damp from the rain leaking through the fragmented window.
A dank, musty odor wafts through, the smell of runoff and compost.
A fax machine in three pieces with the glass broken out roots itself into a powerless socket in the wall.
Somehow still beautiful, even comforting to the right eyes. Something elegant about Nature's readoption of the stone, sand and metal that was so carelessly left to rot by those that thought they owned it.

And told me that he loves me.

And I believed him.
Perfection showed me exquisite happiness.
Kept away the demons and the dark.
Held me safe and warm.
And I fit perfectly in his arms.
Like Tetris shapes, we matched.
Away from the world in the calm and safety
Of a little universe all of our own.
Perfection had to leave today.
And our universe flooded.
My tears crying out for rescue.
I'm afraid to be alone again.

CE Jobs Event part 2(check description)Ren was searching the weapons graveyard where she soon found a clearing. In the middle of that clearing was the ghost plate. 'it can't be that easy' she thought. So, she got ready and took the plate. As soon as the plate was touched, several ghosts and ghost pokemon attacked. Ren counter-attacked as fast as possible. She was surrounded with only one opening, she had to make a move fast if she wanted to make it out of there. She burned a section of the building straight through, ran out and teleported back to the neutral land. There she gave it to professor Leo.

am I overreacting?
I think I have a reason to be mad,
I think I'm doing the right thing.
Maybe I want you to be my guy so badly,
I'm willing to risk what I truly want in a guy.
Everyone keeps telling me I could do so much better than you,
but dating you makes me feel I could touch the sky.
All I want is for you to be there for me,
for me to know I can say anything.
All I want for you is to show that you care,
without any acting.
When I'm upset,
I feel that I have to hide it from you.
You're my boyfriend,
and I shouldn't have too.
Maybe I'm emotionally unstable,
because you're so far away.
Or maybe I'm reacting how I'm supposed to,
but I just don't want to say.
You mean the world to me,
and I want to be with you so badly.
But maybe you're not the right guy for me,
and if so then I'll walk away sadly.
Oh, who am I kidding?
We both know I won't leave you.
Even if I think I should,
and my friends think so too.
I hope the longer we're together,

I must say it a million times every day,
but you never know what I'm thinking of,
when I say those words.
What comes to mind is,
the mornings we spend,
when I wake up
and I feel your arms around me
before my eyes are even open.
What comes to mind is,
when we're in the car,
and your free hand
creeps over to the edge of my seat
and you wait for my fingers to slip between yours.
What comes to mind is,
when we're just being quiet
tangled up together in your bed
and I can hear your heart beating in your chest
and your breathing slowing down as you fall asleep.
What comes to mind is,
when my phone rings,
and I look at the screen and see your name
and my face breaks out in this ridiculous grin
because you were who I was hoping for.
What comes to mind is,
those little moments,
when you look at me
I mean really look
like you've never seen anything like me before
and you never will again.

Everything was okay
It didn't mean anything
But it meant everything
Because goofing off...
Can be all you have left
You smiled for once
You actually meant it
You were happy
You had people to listen
You had people who would talk
No judgement, no commitment
It was all short-term
Even when you were shy
You were okay
Because you were happy
Happy they were there
Not knowing who you really are
Which was your advantage
You were you
You were the you that you chose to be
No one chose that you for you
You didn't care what they thought
Even though you did
She talked for ages
She told you her life, her problems
You didn't share yours, you listened
Normally you talk, but you listened
It was okay
It was good
It was happy
Because you were just there
But not waiting in a bad way
Waiting for more goodness
It was all good
And now the years pass and you realize
You realize that you were you
And that waiting was happiness
Not just being shy
You were happy
IrisPart oneIris1 year ago in Short Stories More Like This
My name is Iris, not that my “guardians” cared. I have dark brown curls that are just below the shoulder and light brown eyes. I was sold by my real parents into servitude when I was two, and I have been told that story many times to get me to work harder (not that it would succeed). They thought that I might have a better life living with the aristocrats. The lord and lady had two sons. One was much older than me, Lionel, and then Gregory, who was my age, took a strong liking to me as soon as he saw me. Gregory was a well built young man with tan skin and slightly wavy hair with hazel eyes. And, of course, his parents found out he had his eye on me after about 2 years, and hated it, so first he got punished, as I heard screams from the house. Then, as a turn of events, he became in charge of my beatings that were usually from the lord.
That boy was actually smarter than I thought, because he said to his father that beating me in my favorite place on the whole mano

The world is making her lose her mind.
Her so called friends make her sick,
She puts up with their lies and their shit.
Why does she work her dead end job?
To support her family that doesn't give a fuck.
She tries to do right but its always wrong.
Why doesn't anyone see through the Bombs?
Her wrists are scarred and She's falling apart,
She used a needle and thread to sew up her heart.
Her hands are coated in metaphoric blood,
No matter what, Its not enough.

From flexing fingers,
Good as new
Until you thread a needle through.
For broken bones,

Or rather, low
And have a right to moan.
But not a little cut.
Striking stitch anew,
Threading this thought,
Fresh and new
To use as healing strings,
And yet the little paper cut...

“(Name)!” Rose’s voice rang out, “Where are you?”
(Name) had slowly wandered through the opera house when she finally heard Rose calling her. She changed directions and headed straight to the voice until she saw the face of her.... ‘friend’. She couldn’t really tell how close they were, but something nagged at her mind. It wasn’t a big issue right now, but it was still an issue all the same. Rose looked at her and smiled.
“(Name),” she sighed, “Where were you?”
“I should ask the same.” the (h/c) haired woman countered in a calm tone.
Rose laughed lightly, “Looking for you. Do you think we should leave here?”

That's what she was: an eyesore. She never wore her feelings on her sleeve because they restricted her range of motion, she said. And I wondered what she thought she wouldn't need stiff elbows for on this block.
When the dawn would break in such a fashion that light actually streamed, she should have glittered with the fine sheen of mistakes she'd made. But she was muted by the powders and makeup she used to deny herself that very sparkle. She saw perfection in that facade, but on our street it was considered sin to never let the neighbors see your underwear on the washline or the late rent notice on your door.
She'd been around too long already for the liking of

Seki’s eyes widened at the familiar voice. Her eyes glanced around the crowd and quickly found who called her name. A woman. A very beautiful woman. Her long, luscious ebony hair coiled behind her back. Her golden eyes added on to her beauty in a mysteriously unique way. Her lips were a bright yet natural red. Even though she didn’t like it, she showed a human emotion, a weak emotion, in front of the people she loathed so much. Sadness.
“Mother...” Seki whispered, tears escaping from her eyes. “I thought… I thought you died… When Elder attacked the village…”
The woman smiled warmly. “No, Seki. I had survived. Were you… Worried about me?”
“Ayumi! Why do you call your daughter by her demon name, not her real one?” one of the guards in the crowd complained. “She is a monster! If you see her as your daughter, use her human name!”
