Snow covered the streets, the house tops, the stone walls, everything. Lamp lighters began making their rounds. The average Kievan citizens retired for the evening. Parents called out to their children who were busy playing in the snow. Night time was no place for a child. The night belonged to an entirely different cast of characters.

I started playing Fable II the other day, a game that I tore through twice already at a sky shattering pace. It's a good game and I really enjoyed playing it, but I never took the time to stop and smell the roses, so to speak.
By "roses", I mean women. And by "smell", I mean bone. My intent was to have intercourse, is what I'm saying here.
This time I decided to play through the game at a snail's pace. The story is that you and your big sister are adorable street urchins, and then some rich guy murders both of you before going off to do more evil stuff. You live, somehow, and after several unskip

It was chilly November afternoon and sixteen years old Karin Kurosaki was sitting in her room, extremely bored, doing her calculus homework. It would probably ruin her tomboy and free spirit reputation, if someone saw her studying. However, she couldn't care less, especially because she did not really have anything better to do
Karin looked outside the window and dazed of. She did not like winters like this one, gray and dry, with wind freezing you to the bone the very moment you set your toes outside your front door. No, the winter she loved was the mild one, cold, but with fuzzy white snow

He whispers it. He very seldom whispers. I don't know if anyone but me has ever heard him speak in such a quiet manner. But it's understandable. He's exhausted.
I hold him close to me. Under the bandaging, my chest hurts. I don't need stitches but I would've if the wound went much deeper. It probably wouldn't hurt, though but I don't want to. I'd have to answer questions then, and people wouldn't understand. They'd try to take him away.
It'd be easier if I could just holler for Medic. He'd fix it with no comment but rolled eyes. But Medic's home in Germany. The war's been long over.

Maybe they don't say it outright, but I can tell by the way they keep looking at me as they pass me by. 'It's your responsibility', their eyes keep telling me, 'and if you don't end it it ain't never gonna end.'
How dare they. How dare they put this all on my shoulders, not just my team, but his team as well.
But it's up to me to end it, says popular opinion. They tell me these kind of things and they wonder why I go through Scrumpy like water. If they had this kind of pressure on them, I'd like to see any of those lads stay sober.
It's got to end somehow, though. He can't win this fight. There's no

"What truck?" asked Robin, who was apparently sitting on the other side of Joseph.
Joseph's eyes snapped open as he delivered a typically snarky response: "The one Killer Croc hit me with of course!"
Nightwing came to view; with Batman out on a mission with the Justice League, Nightwing became the de facto leader of Gotham's protectors. "He actually hit you with a lamppost," Nightwing said with a small grin.

A few days ago, the Teen Titans came to Wayne Manor to help Tim Drake, who was wounded in a fight with an unknown assailant, recover from his injuries.

The disgusted looks on the servants' faces told him as much, along with the trail of mud and blood he was leaving in his wake. By now, his smell and the state of his clothing should have dissipated any romantic illusions they could have had about his race, he thought wryly.
