Something to Live ForFor as long as I can remember,Something to Live For2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I was doing nothing but stumbling
around in the darkness.
I thought what I was doing
would help me cope with what happened,
and make things better in the end.
I was only fooling myself.
I refused to acknowledge that
I was doing more harm than good.
Living this condemned life of mine,
I didn't want anyone to follow in my footsteps.
There was nowhere I belonged.
that's what I kept telling myself,
Until I met you.
In this world full of darkness,
you helped me see the light.
I felt I could open up to you and learn to trust again.
And then that night arrived,
the fated full moon.
I thought it was the end for me.
The last thing I remember before my world faded to black
was your tear-streaked face
as you begged me to hold on.
Miraculously, I survived,
and one day,
after you had saved humanity from its demise,
I found myself running to you,
holding you in my arms as you faded away.
It was your sacrifice
that not only assured everyone's safety,

Hamuko yawned, stretching out in the chair she was sitting in. She had been working so hard in Tartarus the night before, trying to complete what requests Theo had given her.
It was still early, but Hamuko decided that she should head to Paulownia Mall to drop off her quest items. She stood up and walked quickly downstairs and out the doors. She didn't want to be stopped by anyone since visiting the Velvet Room and Theo took so long.
Hamuko yawned again as she rode on the train to Port Island Station. It wasn't a particularly long trip, but it was long enough to make her annoyed. Even though it was early in the day, the train was as crowded as it normally was during the rush of the day. She manage to distract herself by looking through her bag, making sure she had all the items. Oh why hadn't she stopped by the Velvet Room before leaving Tartarus?
The train came to a halt before Hamuko could answer her own question. Sh

Fuuka is standing in the kitchen with an apron around her waist, she looks very serious. The green haired girl has been taking cooking lessons with Shinjiro and wants to prove her skills. I can´t help but smile at her from my seat at the table. Yukari helps Fuuka with the ingredients since she´s still doubting the other girl´s abilities in the kitchen. Mitsuru laughs as she joins me by the table, crossing one leg over the other.
"Why is it important to give away chocolate?" Aigis wonders in her monotone voice.

I have to see her.
Rounding the turn and entering the grounds of Gekkoukan High, he ignored the stares of all the students as he headed straight for the school, straight for the roof. He remembered the meeting place she had told him when he was in his coma. He remembered every one of her visits his consciousness had been so kind to be there for. Even if he had been unable to move his body, he was still able to have some form of alertness, and strangely, everything during that time except the visits from her were muffled, hazy, as if looking through a foggy window. The rest of the time, when his awareness did slip, his mind was filled with thoughts of her.
"We decided to make the roof our meeting place, after all of this is over," he remembered her saying quietly,

Michael Phillips could hardly believe the words that came out of his boss’s mouth.
“You’re firing me?”
His boss nodded in a false-show of grimness, even though Michael knew that he wasn’t sorry for his decision at all. “It has been brought to my attention that several claims that crossed your desk didn’t meet adequate criteria for authorization.”
“Didn’t meet the criteria? Which ones are you referring, too?”
“Well, let’s see...” Michael’s boss sucked in his breath as he looked over a list placed on the desk in front of him. “There was the claim from a Mr. John Stevins, Ms. Ellen Roberts, and a Mr. Shawn Edwin, and the list goes on from there.

Maybe it was a gift from Kanji. I didn't want to think about it.Thursday: Autumn Wind2 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
I wished I brought a scarf myself. It was getting late into fall and the air was chilly. I was half-tempted to walk over to her and ask if we could share the scarf, but I didn't. That would have been embarrassing. After all, she was a third year and I was only a first year. I had trouble approaching her normally.
I watched her back as we continue their walk. I knew that she wouldn't mind if we walked side-by-side. She would probably ask about her 'big bro' again and what he was like as a daycare worker and I would tell her again about how I was happy that he got me and his step-mother to start living like a family. I didn't though.

The graveyard of Iwatodai is silent, with the only sounds being the chirping of the birds currently perched within the tree branches of the trees in the cemetery, with the notes of a song falling from their throats.
It is currently early March, with the weather taking a turn for the worse being colder than usual. But still, that didn't stop the six teenagers and one pre-teen, with one dog among them, from entering the cemetery, all bundled up in thick coats but one, all heading straight towards one particular gravestone that they always came to visit regularly.
Taking the lead was a pale brunette girl, currently dressed in a pink blouse, also with a dark pink coat on over her blouse, a sad look on her face, a bouquet of orange tulips with red tips to it nestled within her arms.
A pale-faced girl with short dark hair, dressed in the Gekkoukan High School uniform, a grey coat worn over it, fell in step beside the brunette girl. Right behind the two gir

Today ended up being a rather interesting day. In a few hours I made three friends, and they're all friends with each other as well. I met Naoto Shirogane first, otherwise known as the Detective Prince for her deceiving appearance and that she is a very intelligent detective. Next was a big thug-like guy called Kanji Tatsumi. I heard about him actually, that his attitude and appearance make his look scary, but in reality he's a nice guy and has a soft side for kids. Finally, I surprisingly met one of the most popular idols ever: Rise Kujikawa, otherwise known as Risette. I didn't expect her to actually be in this school, but I had heard what problems she was having and decided to be here in Inaba for the time being.
To be honest, I hadn't expected to make friends right away. Call me a bit anti-social, but it's true. I don't talk much when I go somewhere new for the first time, so making three friends that already know each other is nice. Naoto felt the need

"O-Oh... I'm sorry, Miss." I mumbled. She simply nodded.
"Alright. Wait here. I'll calm the class down and then you can come in and introduce yourself." I nodded, and she opened the door before closing it behind her. I heard her speak to her class and they eventually calmed down. I sighed.

Almost 500 years had passed since two brave souls sacrificed themselves and took upon them the task of guarding Death's door. The calm, sensible older male and the cheerful, strong-willed younger female...
They watched as time went by, as their friends and loved ones vanished through the passing of each day. The two took upon their shoulders the pain and agony of the world and its wish for death.
Now, their power had weakened. The power of the universe. Each and every day, the wish for Death grew strong, and their strength diminished. The world was coming to an end.
On one faithful day, Death's manifestation, a young looking male offered them a chance. A chance to change the world's fate. A chance to save it.

Your room was subtly different. Cleaner, somehow. Antiseptic. What really struck you is the words on your monitor. They weren't in any language you could recognize. It wasn't part of any real world language you could think of. Even staring at the characters on the screen made your head throb a bit. You could hear a TV in the other room someone left on. Sure enough the news anchor was speaking in something that sounded like gibberish. You can hear literal metallic gaps in his voice with localized clicking that doesn't sound like it could come out of a human being. And yet, peeking at the TV, nothing seemed amiss.
You took several deep breaths. What happened? Why was the world... wrong? Nothing seemed wrong with you, at least.

I was surprised to hear about them, but I was also surprised to know that Yu-senpai and Yosuke-senpai were from the city. That makes three of us.
