Dear Kaito #220/11/2012
I read your last letter, and I’ve got to say, I’m impressed that you could pull it off. I mean, I know you do impossible things every day, but actually hearing about what you’ve done always leaves me in a state of amazement. I just wish I could’ve seen it! But, why worry about what could’ve been? On to the reason I’m writing to you.
As you might have guessed, I’ve finished the book from last time, and I’m well into another one. It’s written by the same author (Mercedes Lackey, if you’ve forgotten) and it’s called Magic’s Pawn. I’m on page 208, and I’m perilously close to tears. I’d forgotten how sad this book was! (I’ve read the book before, but it was awhile ago, and I’ve forgotten the particulars so I wanted to read it again.)
Here’s the gist of it: The story starts when Vanyel Ashkevron is sixteen. He was brought up on his family’s esta
Lovers Spat'Why is Red such a jackass?' I wondered, curling up on the park bench. I could hear the fountain, burbling in the background as I absently watched a brunette little boy play with the water. Frowning, I turned away. The boy reminded me of how childish Purple could get without snacks.Lovers Spat1 year ago in Short Stories More Like This
I didn't really want to remember anything to do with the Massive right now. If I did, I would remember what Red had done and then probably storm back up there and slap him. That probably wouldn't be a good idea, so I would leave it be. Let us both calm down.
"Hey onee-san, I haven't seen you around here before, what's your name?" Surprised, I looked down and saw a little boy staring up at me from behind overlarge black rimmed glasses. The one that I had spotted by the fountain earlier. The first thing that I registered about him was his eyes. They were the deepest of blues and older than they rightfully should be. They almost reminded me of my own eyes. Huh. Strange kid.
"I'm Mickey, and you're right, it's
PrologueWhy I Love You - ProloguePrologue1 year ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
Kudo Shinichi was largely a self-centered individual. He didn't usually bother trying to make anyone else happy. He tended to think that it wasn't worth the effort, and he had so much confidence in his theory, that he never bothered to test it.
But you see, emotions and human reactions are far too unpredictable for anyone to monitor. All of his deductions were patterns, made by using data and evidence. And as such, his assumptions were based on the only people that he'd been in contact with, and therefore, should not be applied to people for whom he had no basis.
For we all see things differently, and act accordingly. One person could see something one way, and another could see something completely opposite of that view. And if he ever bothered to look back, and test his theory, he would see, and perhaps rectify his mistake.
But Shinichi is a logical person, not used to making mistakes. So until forced, he would continue to live in his quiet
Snacks - Strawberry MilkSnacks - Strawberry MilkSnacks - Strawberry Milk1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
So I just sit there, sipping the strawberry milk that you used to love so much, acting as if I've got all the time in the world.
I don't really.
I know that I have precious few minutes left.
I was hoping to spend them with you but, you aren't anywhere in sight.
I wonder where you've gone as the sun sinks below the mountains, covering everything in a beautiful dusky orange that painters can only ever dream of imitating.
My final thoughts dwell on you and your strawberry milk.
It isn't really all that difficult to understand why it is that you like it.
The drink is creamy and delicious, and maybe it's a little bit optimistic too.
It rather reminds me of a lovely and lazy summer's afternoon, where the sun shines bright and our minds wander freely, following the breeze.
My breath curls out in a misty white cloud, drawing me from my musings and back into the harsh winter climate.
It's a far cry for my summer daydream.

I see these awful hate messages
They come in every form imaginable
And they don’t stop.
All these are cause for discrimination
By people who don’t know
What you’ve been through
How you’ve lived
Who you are.
It isn’t fair
It isn’t right
And it isn’t just.
That doesn’t make it stop.
How can we stop
When we’re the ones
Causing the problem?
Stop being silent
[9/9] Intentions[1/9] "I... love him?" It's more a question than a statement. Certainty wars with absurdity. But you said it. She smiles kindly at you and pats you cheek. "Now off you go dear." You inquire as to where you should be going. She shakes her head with a sigh. "Go see him of course!" You look at her blankly. "Deary," she says gently. "You've got to tell him you know. Oh, don't look at me like that!" She snaps, noting your less than pleased expression. "If you don't tell him, I will!"[9/9] Intentions9 months ago in Short Stories More Like This
[2/9] You hurriedly shake your head and head for the door. You leave, not noticing her smile take on a sly edge. Hailing a taxi, you rattle off an address. Ten minutes later you arrive in front of a stone gray building. With a deep breath, you plunge through the doors. He's standing there, talking to someone. A woman with waist length chestnut hair. Jealousy flares. You walk over and grab his arm, yanking him out onto the street and into the taxi you just vacated.

"It's hard to die," I say aloud, to no one in particular. There's no one in the room except me and my cat Cookie. I glance at the knife in front of me, and almost consider using it. But I'm a coward, I think to myself, I should die a coward's death. It's only natural, I reason. So I get up off the bed I've been lying on for the past half hour and make my way to the bathroom. There's a little drawer filled with neat little bottles, all lined up in neat little rows. I scatter them carelessly, in my effort to find sleeping pills.
Finally, I find some and close the drawer. I make my way back to my room and sit back down on the bed. The knife falls. "I'm shaking," I say to Cookie, who yawns and goes back to sleep. "I wonder why that is. I don't think I'm scared... Am I?" With trembling hands, I empty the entire contents of the pill bottle. Thirteen tiny white pills roll out. Should be enough to do the trick, I think, pushing the tiny white pills into my mou
It Hath HellI keep thinking about Reese. (He’s my lover, my life, my soul's mate, my always.) You would think, I think, that everybody in heaven was happy, but I just can’t seem to get him out of my mind.It Hath Hell11 months ago in Short Stories More Like This
They have these machines
(I call them machines, because I don’t know what else to call them. There isn’t really any technology in heaven, they don’t need it. Some people, mostly teenagers, might consider this hell because of it. I don’t know if there are any machines in hell either. Some people take pleasure in travelling down the long, cramped stairs that wind towards the basement, to gawk at hellions being punished while comfortably seated in cushioned chairs, sipping fruit juice. But not me. So I don’t know, maybe they do.)
that allow you to ‘effectively’ recreate your living loved ones out of epheme (the Angels tell that epheme is what dreams are made of) and your memories. But let me go on record to say that they can’t even produce
The Balance“Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me.”The Balance9 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
Who said that?
Whoever they were, they were wrong.
Day, after day, after day, the pain only gets worse.
Like every name they call you is just added weight.
Until the burden is so heavy you think you might break.
I know this.
Sometimes, I think I might break just thinking about it.
But there are others.
There are so, so many others out there.
They have it worse.
Names fly at them like sharpened daggers.
Words, stream past them repetitively.
When you hear them so often you would think they would hurt less but they don’t.
It only gets worse.
Just when you think you’ve got a balance set up.
Just when you think “Maybe I can handle this.”

PrologueOur Story - ProloguePrologue1 year ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
One of my most vivid memories is from when I was only eight years old. I remember it well because I was depressed at the time and that was the day I almost snapped. However, it's also the day that I came out of my depression and started to enjoy life again.
Now, you may be wondering: How on earth does an eight year old get depressed, aren't they supposed to be happy little kids?
To put it simply, I was exceedingly bored. Not to brag, but I've always been smart for my age, and school was a mind-numbing bore. Everything was too easy but they said that I wasn't old enough to try anything harder. Even my parents didn't think I was ready; my mom just wanted me to stay a little boy forever because I was, in her words "Simply adorable!" and my dad was always too busy to notice or pay me any attention, other than to suggest books for me to read so I would leave him alone.
Being so young, I wasn't allowed to say anything against the rules, against the adult
