EXPERIMENTS ~ Chapter 22Frick, darn, dang, geez, ugh, Were the only words that Kylie could chant inside her head as she forced her tiny car to gears it disagreed with. Much like her gas pedal being stuck to the floorboard, her own back was stuck to the leather seat, drenched with nervous sweat. Both her hands were clutched at ten and two, fingers white as she held to the steering wheel. The necklace hooked around her rearview mirror swung around madly as she careened along the spindly coastal road. She had to get to “the rendezvous point” as quickly as possible. Even though her car could out speed a giant, she refused to get there too late and discover that something had gone wrong.EXPERIMENTS ~ Chapter 222 months ago in Settings More Like This
This time, only four months ago, Kylie, Paula, and Arthur had devised their plan to get Gavin out of the experimenting lab.

Minna-san!! Konnichiwa!! How are you to day? I hope your fine!!
You remember what we have learnt last time? The "Janai" thing I told you that the negative form of "desu" is "janai" & both of them have a past form "Datta" & "janakatta" .
I told you also that the next lesson (This lesson) will be about the interrogative form but I changed my mind because it's too easy All what you have to do is to add the particle "ka" at the end of the sentence Like this:
"Anata wa Hiroto desu" . "You're Hiroto"
"Anata wa Hiroto desu ka?" .. "Are you Hiroto?"
So I decided to teach you something more useful & I guess you will like it!! How to say "I like something" & "I don't like something"!!

You walked down the quiet hall of the Castle that never was.
It was your day off and you had nothing to do. You tried to sneak into Zexion's library. But that didn't work. You got a book thrown at you and almost hit your face.
You and Axel were playing Rock Band but you soon grew bored.
Luxord tried to get you to join him in a game of Poker. But you knew better.
Knowing the Brit, it wouldn't be normal poker.
Your last attempt at fun was asking the Superior to let you go to the beach. But no.
"Ugh... Nothing to do " You whined.
Just as you were about to give up, Demyx -the Melodious Nocturne, ran up to you.
"______! C'mon! We're gonna play a game of Truth or Dare!" Demyx said cheerfully. You didn't really like that game, but hey, it gave you something to do.
You walked with Demyx into the lounge room. Siting there waiting was Axel, Roxas, Luxord, and Saix.

Warmer only because it was out of the wind. It was still wet. Very wet.

I looked up at my mom from my soggy bowl of corn flakes sitting on the kitchen table in front of me, untouched. Breakfast was defiantly not my favorite meal of the day since I would always end up feeling sick after words. Though mom and dad had both commanded me to eat or else they'd lock me in the basement with the Heartless.
When I was little, the very thought of Heartless, or the darkness scared me since mom and dad would always fill my head of adventurous stories of vanquishing the little creatures and defeating the darkness. Now that I was thirteen, I knew they were just kidding around about locking me down there. I hoped they were anyway.
"Hey mom?" I said though a mouthful of cereal.
"Chew your food first, hon."
There wasn't really much to chew, since it was already mush, but I bit into it anyway, then swallowed the lump of flakes. "Where's dad? He said he would teach me some new things with the keyblade today."

Life Changing: Chapter 1I fell. I fell so quickly and so fast that I almost lost my breath as the wind and air beat around my face. I wouldn't survive the fall, it didn't matter. What I found the most strange was that I couldn't see the plane that I had just been pushed out of. It didn't make any sense. I was relieved that despite not seeing the plane that I could still feel my parachute strapped heavily around my body. It felt snug, but that I guess that it would have been a lot worse if it were too loose. I looked around as I felt through the sky and finally pulled the cord that would undoubtedly save my life and my body hurtled back into the air for a moment. There should be someone right? I wasn't the only one that had to evacuate that plane on the way to an anime convention in London right? I saw others go before me, and I saw others leap after me, so why why was I all alone in the sky withLife Changing: Chapter 13 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

These little hikes were the only thing that kept me from losing it. It wasn't some mental problem, or anything. More like a lack of one. Nothing ever happened on this island. Things never changed. I know that was tempting fate, saying that nothing happened, but I didn't care. I'd tempt fate for hours to it's face if it meant things would get interesting. Hell, I'd been living alone so long I'd get into a fist fight with fate and ask it to do something!
I stopped in my tracks, looked to the sky, and shouted, "Come on! Throw a tiger at me if you have to! Just do something!" I stared at the empty space above me for a good few minutes, not sure what I was expecting. Maybe I'd get lucky and some unnamed deity from another world would happen to notice my shout and do something. Maybe an alien race would pick up my voice and abduct me. After another few minutes spent lost in thought I sighed and looked back down at my path. "And maybe I'm just finally going crazy."
