We pulled up to an old two-story house; the white paint was chipping off, two windows showing in the front, a wooden door, and a small awning. Around it were two big oak trees on either side of the house, a small garden, grass, and a curving stone walkway. There was a long driveway leading down to a small garage. As soon as the car was stopped, I quickly hopped out of my mother's grey Toyota Camry, and rushed up the walkway to the door. "knock-knock-knockknock-knock-ding-dong!" The last note of the bell rang out, and then the sound of locks turning was heard. Brenan stood in the doorway, "Sammy!" He squealed wrapping me in a tight hug. "Bren Bren!" I said in the same tone as him, returning the hug. My mother's heals clicked annoyingly against the walkway, sounding her approach. "Hi I'm Samantha's mom. Is your father home?" Her fake smile, an enthusiasm, made my stomach curl up. "Yeah, let me go get him. You can come in if you like. Oh and Sammy?" He asked, looking me. "Yes Bren?" I res
48: Rose "Doctor?" I called blindly into the TARDIS. I had just been in the library, looking for a good read, and I had came across a really dusty old book with the title worn off the side. When I picked it up to see if the title on the front was visible, and a picture fell out. The picture was of a very pretty girl with dirty blond hair and brown eyes. Ordinary enough, unless you know the Doctor. You see, in all the time I've known the Doctor, he's never carried, or owned, a picture. Not of anyone.48: Rose4 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

- " God damnit, why does it have to happen to me? " you muttered angrily, holding a small candle while making your way in the dark hall of the mansion.
Just before you went to bed, you suddenly felt thirsty. The only problem: you didn't want to fell on Sebastian on your way back. The damn demon never sleeps and always does his chores well in advance, often on early mornings. Plus, since you learned that you were his "soulmate", you couldn't help but feel a cheesy feeling inside of you. You clearly were not the romantic type of girl and certainly not with Sebastian.
In fact, get married and have children weren't your first priority, nor it was in your plan in life. You find yourself unable to be a good mother and thinking about having "baby demons" was worst. At this thought, you shuddered violently and you squinted a little. How weird it would be. Turning a corner, you face planted into a firm chest and you scowled, staring up.

Save the PeopleSave the People3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Why does tragedy surround this world?
The whole world is suffering
No matter your religion
One thing from Jesus' teaching stands strong:
We are all brothers and sisters.
Let's reach out to our siblings
Go over and help them
Donate hope and love
Send them a smile
A little thing goes a long way
As in the ocean
The tiniest ripple
Grows into a big wave
With the help of the wind
The tears of the sky has dropped into the sea
The ripple has begun
So let us all be the wind
And let us nurture the love and compassion for our brethren
Let us help as we can
Help those who leave home to save those in pain
Love those who survived and are safe
Hope those who are missing return with breath in their lungs
Pray that those who have left this world are at peace
Do not take what you have for granted
Though it may be difficult to stand up
Be proud to say that you care
And let it show
And shine like the gentle moon
Illuminating the darkness of the night

LOVE THY ENEMY - Bertholdt X OC (1/3)
Warning: Slightly strong language and possible spoilers.
The scouting legion soldiers were on the latest mission beyond the Walls. Our task was to search for humanity’s most wanted fugitives, Bertholdt Hoover, and Reiner Braun. We were tracking those traitors, who I once called my comrades… and considered friends, even… but that was so long ago, I am not really sure I can even call them ‘friends’ anymore.
It was one of those abstract, silent nights, where everything seems shallow. It felt empty, and cold and you could feel how darkness slowly consumed you, crawling deep into your bones until it made you completely numb. Everything was painted in deep, pitched black. The dark was so thick it almost swallowed the landscape, and made our job entirely impossible for us, at least till dawn.

I was exhausted. I knew Kanda was to but he didn't complain about it. We had completed our assignment and we were going to head back. Buuuuuuut, the next train didn't arrive until tomorrow. We walked to an inn and apparently they had one room left, with one bed. Kanda was irritated that we couldn't go back right away, and he got even more irritated that I kept complaining all the way to the inn and kept telling me to shut up, he even occasionally cursed at me in Japanese and I would reply to him in Japanese as well which pissed him off further, and I would smile at his short temper.
But even though we were complete opposites, our sword skills worked well with each other in battle. Even though I was bubbly, girly, and full of laughs and Kanda always had that scowl, was mean, and kinda distant, we were a good team. It's not that bad going on missions with him.
As I said, there was only one bed. Kanda refused to sleep on the floor, a

They will not silence the bells for you.
The roses will not halt their will to wilt
and lilies will disassemble under the earth.
They will not dust Frankincense over cities
and trees will not bow down in grief
willingly donating limbs to become tissues.
But throats will dry out mid-sentence and
black hankerchiefs will be dubbed into pockets.
There will be enough salt to melt the ice
embedded around the hearts of old enemies.
Old enemies will turn friend once more
and the church will be full, packed with love.
The world is unlikely to take a moment's prayer;
Earth spins too fast to pause for any of us.
But the meagre collection of people you touched
(meagréd only by the tear-ridden knowledge
that you would have touched many more in time)
Will ache tonight and whisper of your friendship.
You were and always will be; loved.

Takashi Morinozuka. The “strong, silent type”. Quiet, tall, tough. Dark hair, dark eyes. Your dream guy. How you longed to walk into the host club one day and make your way to his table. But you couldn’t. Partially because you didn’t have the guts, and partially because you didn’t have the time.
It was quite the dilemma, the only time you ever did see Mori was in class when he would silently listen to the teacher lecture about whatever the lesson of the day was about, paying special attention to whatever history was involved.
From your seat in the back you would watch the dark haired teen as he stared intently at the teacher, not bothering to take notes but still retaining all of the information passed down from the teachers to him. Which is more than you could say of yourself.
You were falling a bit behind in a few classes, namely the single class of the day with the tall host. It wasn’t t

You find yourself in a dark and scary world

While they go out to eat
Laugh, never giving you a second thought
Only hours after promising to protect you
They came close
Oh so close to having a hand in my death
From that night
I spiraled down
My world shattered
My heart bleeding
I headed for the rocky bottom
No one reached out
No one tried to stop my fall
I hit the bottom full force
I lay there
I could end it all
No one would miss a broken 13 year old girl
The drunk provids easy access to mass amounts of alcohol
Plenty of pills to mix in lethal doses
Knives to slit my wrists
End it all
The End my way out
But I never did
I clawed my way back up

Cloud Nine can't compare
To this feeling that you give me.
A rush blazing from within---everywhere.
The pleasantries, an all-consuming fire;
I can hardly breathe,
Yet, I relish every second of it.
What more do you have under your sleeve?
Just how will you captivate me next?
Your smile shakes me to my very core,
Your eyes feed me, as I beg for more.
The words you say, like a gentle breeze,
The way you get me, time seems to freeze.
You're a walking wonder,
A passage to paradise;
A sweet oasis,
You're out of sight.
O', and how suddenly you found me,
I'd let you find me again and again.
