Alistair Kirkland, let out a huge breath of smoke, as he peered down over the couch arm to see his friend (your name) flipping open a laptop screen.
“What are ye doin'?” he asked, his thick accent made her want to swoon.
“I want to ask you some questions.” she answered, hoping her friend would agree instead of finding a bypass to avoid it.
“Fine then.” he grumbled. “But be quick.”
By then, (your name) was already on the apparent 'site' and began to scroll down the page.
“Is is true that Scottish are all gingers?”
Alistair looked to the top of his head to see a little glimpse of his red hair. He already knew he had RED hair, but the question (your name) just said sounded dumb.
“No lass. Not all Scottish are...'gingers'.”
(Your name) gave him a cute smiled, before continuing down the page. Alistair, however still didn't get the idea.
“All Scottish people eat haggis?”
“No (your name).” Alistair
Love is a PhoenixI have seen nothing more tragic,Love is a Phoenix2 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Than watching love die.
Enduring it’s painfully fade,
As it stubbornly clings to life
The slow death of a love,
That’s filled with years of life.
Or the sudden snap,
As it blinks away in a lover’s eye.
It doesn’t go easy,
And it doesn’t go fast.
It goes out fighting,
Because love was made to last.
It is a brilliant flame,
Drowned in water.
It clings to the air,
With all its dying embers.
Yes, I have seen no sadder sight,
Than watching love as it dies.
But I have been blessed to gazed upon no otherworldly scene,
Than watching love be born again, anew and free.

Not a word
Not a sound
Let me kiss your breath away
as I lay you to sleep in the frost covered ground.
I shall dress you in a wedding gown
of lilies so pure and white
Pleading my vows of love eternal
to you, my Winter bride.
Our wedding bed is covered
in a blanket of virgin snow
Stained only by the secrets
I have forced upon it now.
Sleep gently, my love
Not a whisper
Not a breath
Let me lie by your side
while I love you to death.

Das roared powerfully as he sliced through another group of enemy troops with his blade, the strength of his attacks allowing him to slice cleanly through them as he leapt into the air to strike another group down just as mercilessly.
Theres too many of them! This will take forever!
Das looked over at the soldier next to him as they said it and smirked a little.

He growled a little as a laser blast hit him hard on the shoulder, looking over at the lone sniper whod finally managed to hit him, clearly a little panicked at being spotted as the large hybrid dashed towards him and slammed him hard into the wall behind him.

No one but me,

of a preconceived notion,

Fight for life.
Yūrei- Yūrei are a type of Japanese ghost, usually female (though males do exist), traditionally shown as wearing all white with long black hair that hangs in front of their face. They are typically bound to specific places or objects, and often have a mission of vengeance.

I scrambled on top of the fridge. From here I could see the meat grinder slowly wheeling it's way over.
"AH HA HA HA HA! You can't do shit bro!" I crowed, sneering down at the metal machine.
It rammed into the fridge. I teetered dangerously close to the edge.
I really hated to have an metal object prove me wrong.
Standing up, I lept onto the cabinets. For a split second, my feet dangled over the edge. Pulling myself up, I flattened to fit between the ceiling and cabinets. It was a tight squeeze.

"Lucy? What are you doing here?" asked Natsu standing in the doorway. "I wanted to hang out with you, duh!" I said repeating his same words back at him. A pointy toothed smile spread across his face, "Cool!" he exclaimed shutting the door behind him. I was sitting on a small red couch by the balcony doors, Natsu made his way over and sat next to me. I could hear the blood pounding in my ears. (Dam it Lucy!) I yelled in my head (It's not like you haven't ever sat next to each other before! This is so unlike you to get worked up over something so simple.) I looked over at my friend to see that he was looking at the floor with a slight pink tinted across his cheeks.
I opened my mouth to speak but stopped when I felt warm fingers touch the inside of my palm. "Um, Lucy? Is it okay if I uh, hold your hand?" I just nodded unable to come up with any words to say. I couldn't hear my own thoughts over the sound of my heart beating. We sat there without saying a word. (His hand feels

When the wind blows, he creates waves and dishevels your hair.
It smells like summer. It is Julie and the sun burns, the clouds are gone.
The yesterdays rain dried already and so the nature, reborn, after the long winter feels fresh and new.
Birds are twittering.
You smile and stretch your arms as high as you can.
Suddenly something lands on your fingertip.
It is a butterfly!
With a colour like a piece of the sky.
Softly, slowly it moves his wings to tank the heat.
He did just escape his homely safe cocoon and is fragile as a new bourn baby.
You don't dare to breath.
So flawless is this moment.
The butterfly needs your finger for a break and you are allowed to admire his beauty.
It could have been just seconds, months, whole year- who knows?
Endless peaceful joy comes from nowhere.
Eventually he flutters a bit, than he flies away, melting with the blue above you.
He left, but the moment stays in you heart and makes you smile.

Lifting arms in anticipation
Legs weak with need
Clothes drifting to the floor
Eyes locked into a dance of seduction
Lips quivering in arousal
Skin electrified with a simple touch
Flames flicker in the background
A kiss spurs us into a blaze
Awakening every nerve ending
Enticing is every kiss
Drenched with excitement
Waiting for the satisfying end
So much euphoria in this moment
Then ...I wake ..damn no reprieve

Alone in my thoughts
It's a dark morbid road
I can't stray far from,
The end is so far,
Am I running in circles,
Or am I just too far gone
In this web that won't let me move on...?
Clutching my wrists
Near the scars, three times kissed
By the demons, the dark,
The ones who won't move on,
But they're so gentle and tender
In this world of cruel pretenders
Why does is hurt so much?
Why can't they see who we are?
You can't feed me more lies,
When I'm dead inside,
For the dead can not hear
Above their own soundless cries
There’s a secret,
In my locket
Burning skin just
See these scars on my wrist?
Or the pain you’ve dismissed?
I can’t take it
Can someone save me,
From the hell that’s my mind?
Though I’ve been left behind,
Will it change over time?
Take a step, place your feet
Raise your arms, to the beat
Of the drums of the dead
'Til there's nobody left
To save who you are,
From the monster you've become.
OddityGenerally, I do not like going outside.Oddity5 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
I much prefer the safety and security of indoors. Yes, I understand there are benefits of leaving my room and venturing forth into the world, such as suntans, fresh air, and human company. But there are so many dangers. I could get hit by a bus, bitten by an uncontrolled dog, even get chewing gum stuck to the bottom of my shoe.
It's simply not worth it.
Of course, there's no telling my parents this. "Go out and play football or hang around with the other boys", they say. They don't understand the gentle joy that one can achieve from simply reading about the outside world, rather than endgangering your very existence by experiencing it for yourself. They insist that I spend at least an hour a day outdoors.
It is the middle of autumn, and there is a slight chill to the air. So, I ensure that I have on the correct attire- A plain black sweater, plain black scarf, and carefully ironed black jeans, not too loose, not too tight. I carefully cl

A growing tensity finds my flesh in the process of fear well known to me,
born unto endless theories that quake my nerves from the core of my mind.
Where from these ideas come, my senses all point to fire & brimstone,
and the smell of sulfur alarms my soul.
I can hear them off in a distance behind a supernatural two-way mirror,
laughing as I melt beneath the friction of my trembling body.
Only at a short distance are they kept
by the angels I have yet to meet.
Yet still does the unnerving sense overcome me,
by the unneeded work ethic of my thought process,
where thinking only wears me thin and keeps me guessing,
at the very Gates of my personal Hell in mind, which reluctantly I forged.
There is a darkness in me, to my sight among perception...
where my glass is neither empty nor full,
but full of names and voices and blessing and curses and
memories that only drown me in what appears to be a black hole within my glass...
I write and I pray, remaining ever patient on the other side of t

That you turned your back

As my blinded daze started to wear out
I finally started to see
That you turned your back

So I closed my eyes,
So I couldn’t see
That you turned your back
You turned your back on me
But even while the darkness
Embraced my eyes like a glove
Even while I couldn’t see
The memory still haunted me
That you had turned your back

ToonZ - Family Business Chapter 5The elevator Scrooge and Fenton had been in had made extra stops every other floor so that they could let off the workers that had filled the compartment. On any normal day, the owner of McDuck Industries would not have minded the stuffiness as much; he was able to get into discussions with his employees that way, and often managed to make better deals with them about something in the Money Bin. But today, was not a normal day. Today, Scrooge had to make some adjustments to his budget; today, he had to order in over one billion dollars of material for his workers; today, his patience had grown thin. So anyone who stood even a foot from him got snapped at.ToonZ - Family Business Chapter 52 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
It took a good five minutes before arriving at the top floor after the multiple stops. By then, Scrooge had added another thing to his list of why today was a bad day, and that was the fact that he was one person short on exiting the elevator.

His first instinct was to blame Fenton. Of course, being who he was with

Eyes now wide, Thor was backing up as the girl jumped over the table taking him down. Off to the side another boy stands, but with black hair and shining green eyes. He shakes his head.
"Brother did you really have to make her mad this early in the morning?" he asked as he pulled the girl off Thor. Thor just laid there in shock because of how close the girl came to killing him. "Azra, would you clam down?" She just glared at Thor.

"Salamander!" Gajeel yelled angrily as he stood up with as much dignity as he could muster after falling off his chair. "What d'ya think your doing, you fire-breathing--"
But Natsu ignored him and zoom away towards the old man on the beer hall.
