I'm so tired of people always saying that I'm a good person
Cause I'm not
If they could only see what was in my head
"Well, they should stop wallowing in their past in the first place, and look towards the future instead." The red-head in front of me said, but his face seemed to soften a little as he looked at me. I was sure it was because he saw the small bit of pain that was showing out of my expression. "Look," He sighed as he rubbed his temples lightly, "I know it's hard to forget about the past sometimes, but there's no use in getting caught up in it; it'll only make matters worse in the end..." His voice seemed somewhat more gentle as he looked at me. "I should know, because I used to be one of those people who was obsessed with their past and just wanted to end it all.." Kai sat down next to me on the bed, and placed a hand on my shoulder. "You know... It takes a lot of guts to stop doing drugs once you're started them... I look up to you because you were

Stopping a block away from my house, Talen put the car in park and stared out the windshield. I turned in the passenger's seat to stare at him one last time, his hazel eyes shifting to me as I smiled a bit.
"I don't want this night to end," I whispered, staring at my hands in my lap.
"Me neither," The black-haired man whispered, caressing my face in his hands. "But I had a really good time. I'm glad you like me back."
Talen leaned forward and let his fingers sift through my hair as his lips gently brushed mine, bringing me into a tender kiss. I closed my eyes and brought my hand up, tracing Talen's prominent jaw bone with my fingers as he moved closer, putting more pressure on our lips. He pulled away slowly, grinning slyly.
"W- What's with that face?" I stuttered, furrowing my eyebrows.
"Where did you learn to kiss like that?" He asked, leaning back and making my face burn with unease. "It seems like you've had practice before."
"I- I d

I closed my eyes waiting for the cold metal to pierce my skin and free my mind from the fractured world I called home...
"But before I do..." The girl's voice cut through my thoughts, as cold and sharp as the knife at my throat, "I would like to know what an elf is doing with a downed faerie, walking through the wild forests at the border of Saraphyls." She hissed the name of her country, hate dripping from her every word.
"P- Please..." I begged, "We're just passing through... we didn't mean any harm..." She pressed the blade harder against my neck, her lips parting to show her perfect, white canines.
"Who are you?! How did you get here and how did you find me?!" She shouted, digging her knees into my gut so I was practically gasping for air.
"M- My name's Zane... and tha- that's Ryu... w- we got here on accident... I fell off a cliff and Ryu saved m- me... b- but he hurt himself and now we're l- lost... sorta..." She glanced over at Ry

Caleb grabbed his mask back from the receptionist after she had checked the mesh and bib, running his thumb along the new blue stamp on its side amidst the many other, older, ones.
"Are you all checked?" Delacruz asked him when he found the boy stretching in the men's locker room.
"Yep," The fencer replied, switching legs.
"Alright then get your stuff on. I'll help you warm up."
"m'kay." The brunette nodded, looking over at Delacruz knowingly, "Gonna show off for all the sponsors, eh?"
The Asian man smirked before leaving Caleb to suit up.
Alec sat up from where he'd been lying on the bed and stalked out of his room to get some food in his stomach. He hadn't eaten since yesterday, his head too clouded from constantly thinking about Caleb to worry about food.
As he walked out into the hallway, the sound of the TV in Danni's room made him freeze mid-step. Glancing over from where he stood, he saw the brunette that had been invading his

The whole family stared at Caleb in alarm, Alec furrowing his eyebrows in confusion.
Didn't he just tell me I was his first friend? He thought to himself. How does he get a girlfriend when he's so busy with fencing?
"Um," Caleb looked down, his cheeks burning with embarrassment. "Yeah, I met her through my parents. Her name's Haley."
Danni and Elaine glanced over at Alec, who was glaring at his plate, his fist clenched tightly around his napkin, his knuckles turning white. They noticed his eyes becoming glossy with the threat of tears. He quickly pushed himself away from the table and stood up, his hair falling into his eyes.
"Excuse me," He whispered, tossing the napkin onto the dinner table and stalking out of the room. Caleb's gaze followed the golden-haired teen through the doorway, his eyes spelling confusion. His head turned back to the table, his expression filled with perplexity.
"What just happened?" He asked, rubbing h

Riley's point of View
On the drive back to the apartment, Riley could tell that something was bugging Ian. He wanted to say something, but was afraid that it would upset the copper haired teen. When they got back, Riley followed the taller teen up to the apartment. Ian flopped on the couch as Riley went into the kitchen to get something to drink. He went back into the living room and sat down next to Ian. Ian smiled as he took the soda from Riley, and then leaned his head back on the couch. They sat like that for some time before it got to Riley.
Ian opened his eyes and turned his head to look at the silver haired teen.
"What are you talking about?"
"You've been acting weird since we left the hospital."
Ian looked at Riley for a moment, and then got up.
"Come on. I need to show you something." said Ian as he motioned to his room.
Riley looked at Ian in confusion as he got up and followed the taller teen. When they got into Ian's room, Ian went over to his c

Adeon watched, with admiration, the young boy passing by all alone. He leaned forward on the park bench, his elbows on his knees and his chin resting in the palms of his hands, his eyes entranced by the child. The boy turned toward Adeon watching him and cocked his head at the man. The black-haired demon smiled lovingly, putting his hand out, the brunette walked forward without hesitation, his soft green eyes not leaving the cold, black ones of the demon.
"Kasey," He whispered as he gripped the child's hand, pulling him close to speak to him. His hand cupped his cheek, tenderly. "You're mine now."
"What?" The child fur

Even though I was frozen in place on the seat of the Ferris wheel, my mouth curved into a warm grin.
"You like me?" My voice quivered and I licked my lips, hoping to get a taste of Talen's Chap Stick from them.
"Yeah," Talen chuckled a bit, rubbing the back of his head. "I thought I was straight before I met you."
My eyes widened and I straightened up a bit.
"Seriously? I... I turned you?!"
Talen laughed and wrapped his arm around me as the Ferris wheel came to a stop part way to the ground.
"Well, when I first met you, you were just so cute, what with the red cheeks and the way you were so terrible at making stuff up."
My face flushed in embarrassment at the memory.
"And the more we hung out, the more I couldn't stand to be away from you. You were the only person who could make me smile and laugh like that, besides my brother. And I fell for you. Pretty hard, actually. So... what I'm trying to say behind all this corny shit. Will you go out w
