"Let's rest a moment," the silver fox panted, plopping down at the base of a giant pine. His scarlet companion glared back at him- it was obvious she wasn't as keen on pausing to rest.
"If you must, Victor." She grumbled. "But we're almost there. I'd rather not stop now."
Victor rooted around under his red neckerchief until he found his quazzilare. He lit it with a swift movement of his paw and inhaled the smoke deeply. His pipe bounced between his teeth as he spoke. "My dear, would you be so kind as to inform me exactly who we are looking for? We've
No Rest for the Wicked, Part 2The pair hurried through the forest, moving swiftly but silently, whipping through frosted underbrush and leaping from log to snow-dusted log. They were little more than shadows in the dark as Roe led the silver fox deeper and deeper into her domain. She circled around several times and doubled back on herself; ensuring no-one would be able to track them. Eventually she came upon a partly frozen river, and after crossing it twice in both directions she decided to identify a safe place to spend the night. A hollow tree trunk presented itself ahead, its cavernous opening curtained by thick strands of ivy. Roe pushed her nose through, shruggingNo Rest for the Wicked, Part 22 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
Return of the Wicked - Part 1Victor's whiskers quivered. He was getting nearer, he was sure of it. The woods in these parts were thick, and the sunlight filtered through the green canopy above, casting dappled shadows on the forest floor. A songbird flitted across the fox's path, whistling gleefully.Return of the Wicked - Part 12 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
The silver fox scowled at the bird.
Uhg. What could possibly be so joyous in this Podunk neck of the woods?
He paused to gnaw at the bits of grass stuck between his ivory claws. The songbird landed daintily beside him. The fox snarled, revealing a mouthful of perfectly white teeth. The bird persisted and began pecking at his tail, undeterred.

His subordinates laughed. He growled and lowered himself to Victor, pushing him back into the snow. "Ain't no glasses around here, Mr. Fox. What's say we conclude our unfinished business from earlier, now that you ain't so busy?"
The wolf on the right stopped chuckling, his face turned serious. "Alopex wants 'em alive, Avner. Keep your cool."
Avner shot his companion a frosty glance, but eventually simmered down, pulling back and allowing the silver fo

The man lay dead under the sprawling redwood canopies of the high Rockies, half buried in snow. There was a bullet wound in his chest, and the frozen blood which stained his rugged clothes had turned almost black with age. His gun lay a few feet away, and his pale hand reached fruitlessly for it. He had been killed many days ago, yet his eyes still stared wistfully at the crystal blue sky, as if desperately wishing to ascend to some higher plain of existence. But still he was tethered to the mortal, lying undisturbed by the trailside and slowly consigned to burial by the hands of winters chill.

Sisters A white she-wolf with blue paws and hind legs sat alone on a hill on a sunny, warm, spring day. She sighed and walked down to the pond nearby. She stared at her reflection, and it stared back at her. He blue eyes sparkled from the sunlight reflecting on them. Her blue heart on her left cheek as well as three pink dots on each cheek and her pink and blue stripes on her ears and the blue inside them seemed to blend in with the rest of her white fur as the sun shined down on her. It was a beautiful day, but yet she did not smile. She just stared blankly at her reflection.

Trench life is worse then the nightmares I use to cry about when I was younger. I came into this battle strong but now I am entering the black hole of depression. I'm scared. The landscape is only dark brown mud and puddles of black water which vary in depth. No lush green trees, open grass fields or any kind of vegetation we have at home. The black water rushes into the trenches when it rains and remains at my feet. So much that I am sure that I have developed trench foot and that both my legs will be amputated if I am to make it home. The dark brown mud sticks to everything in sight. I have become the col

Soaring through my sky
Of freedom and laughter
Once more echoing in my brain.
I finally admitted it out loud to a close friend of mine-
I finally let him go.
I finally let the regrets and my worries fly out the window.
So thank you R~
For everything you've done,
DANG YOU R~!
I'm glad my thoughts of you are done!
So as I laugh and fly through the sky
Relishing my escape front the pain
I watch the past year in my memory
Slowly grow smaller and smaller
As I fly away.

Everything was dark
I was clawing my way out of the thoughts
Of my strangled heart
When suddenly an angel
With golden wings
Whispered a word of encouragement
Into my ear
The world seemed a bit brighter
And I whispered thanks
As I slid down my wall
And a tear fell down my face
I thanked the heavens above
As I fell asleep that night
For my golden angel
That made my night bright
RomeoIt was a moment.Romeo6 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
A small moment, perhaps, but still a moment.
The wind was whispering in her ear
About how nice the weather was
As the girl climbed up the bus steps
To await by the bus window
For a guy
Who made her smile every time he came
Glancing down the busy street
She saw his brown curly hair
Bounce up and down
In the gentle breeze
Grinning like an idiot
She called out his name
And it seemed like a movie
As he scurried across the street
Just to see her
She felt somewhat like Juliette
As she glanced down from her bus seat balcony
Down at her nerdy Romeo with a scarlet gameboy
They chatted and laughed
And smiled and grinned
When the boy held out a piece of paper
As she scrambled to grab a note she wrote for him
They exchanged papers
Both with an amused look on their faces
But the buses roared in fury
And the boy smiled and said a haste

As a pair of hands
Types away the worries of the world
Into another dimension
Where perfection exists
And fairy tales come true
This false hope
Will never come true
Perfection doesn't exist
But some fairy tales do come
For a change
Like going to college
Or getting a car
Or earning your first paycheck
Or getting a scar
Our own fairy tales are enticing to seek
After all, how else would they come true
If at first we hadn't taken a peek
At all the possibilities that exist in the world today
As the pair of weary hands
Closes the laptop
For another day.

Ronnie blew a strand of blonde hair out of her face as she walked down the empty halls of the junior high school. No one was barely there today, minus a few teachers here and there. The only reason she was there was because of the massive library at the school, and she was a major bookworm.
Her footsteps seemed unbearably loud as she walked down the hallway. She eventually reached the library's door. Ronnie fingered the door handle for a few seconds, and then flung it open.
What she saw next she certaintly didn't expect.

On The Inside His eyes show a devastating shade of darkness. The scars on his nose are signs of a streak of losing. They etch deep into his muzzle, around his flanks and neck. They almost make up a whole new set of markings on him, ones he was tattooed with rather than born with. And he lays silently, watching the people passing him up. He's lost everything, and he recalls this. He's ashamed of his marks, of his battle scars, of the fact that he had ever been in a ring.On The Inside1 year ago in Short Stories More Like This

But I don't blame you.
It's my spirit that is gracious,
And my fight weak, too.
It's my devotion running deep
In contorted little knots.
Do I continue to impress,
Or let this relationship rot?
I feel lonely sometimes,
But I don't blame you.
It's my heart too reliant,
And my mind frail, too.
It's my hope for the future
And for my dreams to come alive.
Do I let these desires drive me,
Or do I allow them to die?

But I don't blame you.
It's my emotions in bloom,
And my thoughts positive, too.
It's my happiness when you're around
Bringing me assurance.

It rushes by,
We walk right past
Stare for a moment,
We waste it on money,
Fortune and fame.
We walk right past love
Until it fades away.
Then we are greedy
As we were all along,
We ask for time back,
But it's long gone.
We beg and plead,
To have time back
To hold that love in our arms,
To make everything intact.
But time is not fair,
It treats us no favor.
It walks in and out of our lives,
Making no stops for believers.
Believers of hope and love
And second chances.
Time grants us none of those,
It merely flashes
Just a brief second,
We learn in the end
Time is not here for long,
