Fox and the Girl: Part 2The amulet fell into my hands from the beast’s teeth. There was another flash, the same psychic imagery as before, but not quite as strong; the colors were less vivid; the images from before had sprung to mind, accompanied by a tumult of emotion.Fox and the Girl: Part 29 months ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
I wondered now how to communicate with the beast. I opened my mouth to speak, but decided better of it after a moment; instead, with my eyes shut, I formed an image of my favorite place. It was a small opening in the forest, covered in moss and shrubs, that always felt welcoming to me; it was picturesque. The warmth and comfort I had imagined at the thought of the place seeped into the mental image, saturating my thoughts. I imagined the warmth of the sunlit grass, soft as a carpet, threading between my toes. I breathed in, and my thoughts wandered to the wonderful smell of pine and moss that had so often bit at my nose.
The fox howled, breaking my concentration, and leapt at me suddenly. I threw up my arms for protection and felt a shar

All the grass in the area had changed to a dry yellow. I closed my eyes, and listened to the river’s dull hum. I took in a deep breath and could almost taste autumn. After a moment of listening to the river, I heard some leaves rustle somewhere in the distance. I glanced around and my eyes widened as they settled on the copper-colored beast.
The fur-covered beast was standing only a few feet away from me; it seemed to be a fox, but much larger. Under normal circumstances, I think I might’ve been scared; its eyes gave off a peaceful warmth with their amber glow. I would’ve fled just at that moment had it not been for the mere size and peculiarity of th

It wasn’t the stale smell of fallen leaves that filled the air--it was the scent of change. I took in a deep breath before I started to walk again. It surprised me how cold it had gotten in the past two weeks. Weather changed quite fast in October--especially here in Boston.
My nerves weren’t helping either with the cold. Stress always made the cold worse for me. So much was on my mind, and the thought of moving into a new place felt overwhelming. I’d be going to a new school and living with new people; I hadn’t had much time to plan for that.
The wind kicked up another patch of leaves; they swirled around in a colorful blend before melding back to the grey pavement a moment later. I checked my phone--1:15 PM. I started to walk a bit faster, the leaves crunching under my feet. The move-in time was 1:00 PM. My poor sense of direction had already gotten me

I watched him from a distance. As usual, he was starting a snowball fight with a bunch of local children, laughing and having fun. Now, this was nothing unusual, of course; he was the Guardian of Fun, after all. I just liked to see him so happy.
After about half an hour, the kids started going into their homes, laughing and shivering, ready for a nice, hot cup of cocoa. Eventually, only he was left outside, smiling fondly at their retreating backs. A moment later, he sighed, looking down at his unclad feet, smile becoming self-depreciating, instead of joyful. I frowned, not liking the change one bit.
"Alone again, huh?" He murmured to himself, huffing softly. My frown deepened, shoulders slumping. /You're not alone…/ I wanted so bad to reach out to him, but… I sighed.

Hip Hop Thesis [Ongoing Study] Music has long since been a part of human culture and has served not only as a means of enjoyment and congregation, but also as a link between humans that connects like-minded individuals together and helps to give explanation to the practices of people. The Hip-Hop genre, or rather art form, is one of many different shades of emotion, and it expresses these emotions with a plethora of different lyrics, some which may and often do offend others. For that reason Hip-Hop is often labeled as being the most negative form of music in modern history. Though hip-hop does have it's darker sides, these deep areas of emotion in hip-hop's repertoire of songs are often misunderstood. Hip-Hop, as a genre, should not be criticized because of its "negatively influential lyrics," as its positives outweigh it's negatives. Hip-Hop has given more support to the inner city youth of America than any other form of music or entertainment in the past 50 years or more.

Feel the heart beat...

This vision becomes the new reality.
A reality where everything is possible

The pink giraffes with the sombreros are row-boating to the chimpanzees,

And toaster strudels are kicking the narwhals with baby traffic cones singing lollipop with a train,
And the UFO with the Christmas mistletoe is trying to gum the eyebrows that are eating the socks with big hairy Sasquatches,

And swimsuit models attacking killers bees with superman,
And the island that hails the teddy bear that kills llamas,
And nyan's with gingerbread houses,
And fiddles with the paint that defeats the evil muffin,
And chews the man in the moon with pumpkin pie howling with some neon flying cars,
And heading to Narnia with my cookie that Kory sent there last year.

The clerk wasn’t able to read Claire’s cursive so I had to do some guesswork.

Never again will the lip’s muscles meet for a kiss

My wrinkled skin stiffened by the night’s surprise

I cannot move I cannot feel I just see as if in another world
Looking and observing through an oily existence.
All seems lost and the red is pooled at the end of my bed.
“I AM DEAD!” I realize with such fear and trembling
I try to cry but nothing happens. Everything is frozen.
Why is my soul dancing on the border of life and death?
Why can I not be free of this mortal coil?
The questions race through my spirits mind
