No matter what I did or how long I stayed it would still already be taken, taken for good. And stayed, I did. For I always hoped, despite knowing it was a waste of his time and a waste of my heart, that something would happen to change what had already been written in the stars. The longer I stayed, the more I realised and the deeper I hoped. Nothing feeds a hungry heart like the fear of losing what it longs for.
I saw it in the way they looked at each other, the way he never looked at me, the way I persuaded myself to believe he looked at me. It can't be seen on a photograph or a video tape, the lens of a camera could only capture so much as the fraction of the real enchantment binding and locking their eyes together. The first time I saw it, was the day that I met them, and from then on I always knew that this was a love that would kill me.
Even so, I let myself believe. A foolish mistake I s

If you could travel back in time, what would you do? Change the course of human history? Become a rockstar, president, or a dictator? Would you change your life for the better? Would you be an agent for the International Time Travel Association? Yeah, there's such a thing. In the year 2021, there are a select and elite few people drafted, and are assigned top-secret missions to save mankind.
Like, say all those suicidal drug overdoses? Half of them were ways of killing themselves that no one else had figured out, and left them with a half-used coke needle and a dead person with holes in their arm, or a bottle of pills half way used, and someone lying facedown on the couch.
But, what if you were stuck, and no one could help get you back?
In a time so different from your own, you can find many things, like knowledge, fame, fortune, but me, I found something more

"Brian, you faggot, there's a lot of people outside the window," John told me. "They know we're here!"
"They know that you are here, John," I said. "Nobody gives a damn about me. They want you."
"Well, screw 'em," John said with a snort. "If the people really love me, they would leave me the fuck alone!"
He couldn't say it better than that. I had to smile. The two of us were stuck inside a room at the Mason Hotel, both looking out the large glass window. We were seeing a crowd of people - fans - in the middle of the street blocking out traffic. Fourteen or so girls were holding up a sign that said COME OUT, WE LOVE YOU! in black paint. The message tickled me, because it wasn't that easy. It wasn't easy to come out. I should know about that sort of thing because I'm a, well, I think you know. The group knows.

"So what are you going to wear?" Amani asked as she watched me line up yet another outfit possibility. This one went on the open closet door; the bed and desk were already full.
"Do you really think I would be laying clothes around the room if I knew?" I answered tartly. I stared at the clock, it was 11:45.
Somehow, Saturday had snuck up on me, and I couldn't figure out how. Amani had a theory, she thought my subconscious had convinced me the phone call hadn't happened, that somehow I'd psyched myself out of thinking I was actually meeting Niall Horan. But, it was happening. I was meeting him in less than an hour and I had no idea what to wear.
"Why don't you wear those red skinny jeans you just bought?" she asked, ignoring my harsh tone.
"And pair them with what?"
"The white tank top you just bought and those black booties you got for Christmas." I stared at her, stunned.
"It's a great outfit," I said as I smiled at her, "but I'm afraid the pants might be a bit busy."

She tripped over fallen branches and her heart hammered during her run away; the world was freezing cold and the only source of lighting were but the moon gems stuck within the curly, thick trees dull, lifeless, barely helping the poor sick one out during such a dilemma. She felt something in her head pounding with her hand remained clutched around her dead flashlight, her memories of that nightmare haunting her in the frightening darkness. Tears fell down her face whilst she hopped over roots and tripped through black bushes of frost and leaves, fear overpowering her senses with bitterness. The woods were silent, their tree canopies so high and so covered that not a speck of snow from the storm above managed to

1976. It was one of those days when I was very nostalgic. I started to watch some old The Beatles' videos. Ah, those great times. How much fun we had! I truly miss those crazy days when I was a Beatle. My life changed when I joined The Quarrymen. We played in bars like The Cavern, on boats where would eat fish and chips (what else?), or any other place where we could show we really knew how to rock and roll. We even played as a backing band for a stripper that got naked right in front of us. I enjoyed too much being with John, George and Ringo. We were four naughty boys wanting to experience a whole lot of things, such as getting drunk and trying drugs. Bloody hell, we had a serious addiction to weed, that's why we used to sing "I get high with a little help from my friends". Tours around the world where so much fun, we used to feel like gods because of the Beatlemania phenomenon. Everyone loved the four long-haired boys from Liverpool.

The wind howled and the lightning flashed as the thunder roared in the dark filled with unknown sights and sounds and feelings. Meanwhile, shivering underneath duvets and blankets and pillows and soft toys was America. Tears welled in his eyes and fell pitter-pattering into his small, shaking hands in synchronisation with the rain hammering against the rooftop, which was making some alarming creaking sounds, almost as if threatening to give way altogether and crush the small boy. He let out another whimper as the storm growled and hissed at him angrily, the cold draught seeping in through cracks and holes and trying to tickle the young nation into submission. He just shrank into an even tighter ball as a sob wrenched itself from his throat.
He looked up at the toys huddling under the fort of sheets with him, at their warm, comforting smiles. "There, there, America," they seemed to speak to him with their gleaming button eyes, <

Once upon a time, a sick little girl named (name) was born. Everything about her was frail. Doctors said she wouldn't live through the first month. Her mother mourned for her daughter who wasn't even in the ground yet, but her father was determined to save the life of his offspring. He was the lead scientist in a top secret human improvement project and he'd do just about anything to keep her alive. Without the knowledge of his daughters doctors or her mother, he injected her with a series of serums from his experiments. Soon the small girl began to show remarkable improvement, living through the first five years of her life as a normal child. He continued to give her the injections. And soon realized the effects that they had on her. His daughter could lift nearly fifty times her own weight, run further and faster than he himself (a fairly fit man) could. Her eyes could see further, she could hear sharper, and

Gently as a feather breezing through soft winds.

I hoped, no pleaded to God that I was merely tired, and frustrated, and delusional, and what I thought I heard . . .
"The fuck is this?!"
The voice was muffled slightly but there was no mistaking it. My stomach churned unpleasantly and I wanted to die.
Was this night ever going to end!?
I wanted to ignore the situation. I wanted to sleep, and not have to deal with this shit for at least a few weeks, but of course, that option couldn't possibly exist within the realm of reality.
The lack of shuffling and curses after the initial outburst unnerved me to no end. I was actually halfway convinced that he was standing behind me, holding some sort of bladed weapon, fully prepared to kill me in that moment.
The fear began to creep in slowly, taking care to settle particularly in my spine and stomach, and I found myself sitting up slowly, practically certain that my life was about to be taken away from me in that instance.

You see, Mac is a roadie, and to my extreme delight, was hired by Queen the week before he told me about it. He was set to go on their next tour with them, and they invited him to a party and had told him to bring anyone he wanted. He brought me.
It was a chilly night in October when I met him. My heart was beating a mile a minute. Mac told me to stay calm; that they hated it when people went crazy for them, except during concerts. I assured him I wouldn't scream, but I made no promises that I wouldn't grin like a silly schoolgirl.
