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."
"Your father said that? Soku, I can teach you the same stuff, if no

A woman with long flowing white hair ran through the streets to the palace with a small bundle in her arms. The woman looks behind her only to fall forward causing the small bundle to fall out of her arms.
Once the bundle hit the ground a cry came from the small dark blanket. The woman ran over to the small bundle picking it up revealing a small baby's face. The baby looked up at his mother and started to giggle.
The woman smiled as she continued her quest to the palace. "Stop! You woman! Stop right there!!" A royal guard yelled.
The woman froze but quickly ran. She wouldn't let THEM take her son. Not her little Ryou. The woman ran to the royal gardens where she lost the guards. She smiled down sadly at her son then started to sing. "Yal-di ha-tov veh ha-rach Al ti-ra veh al tif-chad(1) My son I have nothing I can give,

After throwing a rather reluctant (not to mention, perverted) Axel out of his room, Roxas pulled on his worn leather pants and a soft cotton shirt, both black to blend in with the heavy Organization coat.
"Why's Axel so enthusiastic? He's usually the last one to roll out of bed every morning," Roxas mused out loud, lacing up his combat boots. "He's never been this excited about anything since the Castle Oblivion mission." Roxas shrugged and zipped up his coat's over-sized zipper. As soon as he took a cautious step outside of his room, a blur or scarlet pounced on him, pulling Roxas down the hall.

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"!!

The hunter was sixteen years old and small for her age, about five feet tall. She did not look very dangerous just the opposite in fact. She had long, tri-colored hair that reached the middle of her back. The hunter's hair was mostly black with gold and wine-colored stripes. Her wide eyes were the color of amethysts. Her nose was no bigger than a button while her lips were rosy and petal shaped; perfect for kissing. The little hunter's skin was soft and creamy but her cheeks were a soft rose color.
