“I’m not listening to you.”
She was talking to herself. There was no one else to talk to. She was her only conversational partner, and some days, that was good enough. But on days like today, when this irrational cloud of depression settled deep in her brain and she tried to think of something to talk about, all she could think of was how sick she was of talking to herself. All she talked about was what a genius she was, or testing, or Science (and she was sick of the way she talked about it, as if it were something worthy of adulation; why did she personify the damn word, anyway?).
Well. That wasn’t all she talked about. But she didn’t want to think about that right now.
Of course you want to think about it.

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"!!

The sun was shining bright through the cracks of the windows Marshall hissed at the burning light.

Fionna watched silently red faced as Marshall continued to laugh after the burning sensation from the sunlight passed.
"Well, let's pick a movie!" Said Fionna, trying to break the ice.
Marshall Stopped laughing because he knew it was upsetting Fionna.
"Sure Fionna, my pick is The Candy Kingdom Chainsaw Massacre." Said Marshall with an evil grin staring at Gumball.

I ran through the lush foliage of the jungle around me, pushing branches out of the way and trying to avoid tripping on the rocks and plants below me. My backpack thumped against my back as I ran, but I wasn't paying attention to it.
How on Earth did I end up in this situation? I thought to myself.
I stole a glance behind me.
At the moment, I was being chased by a huge anaconda. It was catching up to me, and I was panting and completely out of breath, but I couldn't slow down.
I turned back around to keep running, but I tripped on a root and fell to the ground. I quickly turned around and looked behind me, but the snake had almost reached me, and I would never be able to outrun it now. I brought my hands up to cover my face and squeezed my eyes shut as I expected the snake to reach me.
But it never did.
I looked up and saw the anaconda fighting with what appeared to be another snake. But upon closer inspection, I realized it was a person.

It was a truly lovely day as Prince Roland, perched regally atop his magnificent steed, ambled along an old trail through the Forgotten Forest. Though he was alone, and hopelessly lost, the Prince's countenance still carried the haughty mark of his royal station: the chin firmly squared and angled so the tip of his impressively shaped nose always pointed precisely between his horse's ear tips; finely shaped lips pursed ever so slightly so as to hide any hint of real emotion; and velvet brown eyes carefully narrowed as they peered down the sides of the afore ascribed nose. A particular source of vanity, his long flaxen hair flowed in elegant waves to a precise length just below his shoulder blades, the multitude of blond and light brown tones shimmering each time the strands stirred.
As he'd been taught from birth, the Prince was very careful to always retain his regal bearing. After all, one never knew when a peasant might suddenly app

Alec was out searching the jungle for abandoned human supplies, so I stayed back in the cave and tidied up to make room for any new things that he found.
I was so busy cleaning up, that I almost didn't notice the voices coming closer to the cave. They sounded female, and they were all laughing at something.
The hairs on the back of my neck stood up, and I quickly hid within the piles of boxes and other things, and I grabbed a few pillows for extra coverage.
No sooner had I hidden, I heard the voices resonating in the cave.
"Alec! Where are you?" one voice said.
"Come out and play!" another said.
"Wait," one of them said.
"What is it?" a voice asked.
"I smell something," she said.
I gulped, knowing she was probably smelling me. I held my breath and remained perfectly still. The silence in the room pounded in my ears.
Suddenly, a hand grabbed my foot and pulled me out into view. I yelped as I was held upside by my foot.

PrUK- Our StoryI've been in love with Arthur ever since I was in my senior year. I got self-conscious around him, and I felt a bit protective around him. At first I thought that maybe I just developed an older brother complex around him, but I felt like I wanted to do things with him that I wouldn't even think about doing with my younger bruder. Was it normal to get hard when you're around one of your best friends?
