raindrops on kittens and whiskers on roses
tattoos and piercings, like earings in noses
raven haired beauties all tied up in strings
these are a few of my favorite things
decadent colors and nights filled with laughter
childhood belief in the "forever after"
dreams where I soar through your sky on white wings
these are a few of my favorite things
boys with strong hands and the good sense to use 'em
biting my friends just to watch how I bruise them
a slap to my skin and the sweet glow it brings
these are a few of my favorite things

Both Kaito and Meiko looked at the calendar. Sure enough, the crossed days lead to the fateful day that was circle with a christmas reef sticker.
Kaito laughed heartily, while Meiko couldn't help to smirk.
Ever since the blondes was old enough to understand what christmas was, the ritual of waking up thier parents in the wee houre of the morning was the only way to get christmas to start. Even at thier early teens, this childish tradition was a must.
ParricideIt was the silent night of a new moon. Crickets chirped in the garden and were overheard by an old man. He wore a black bed gown and his black hair was cut short. His cold eyes eyed the surroundings. Cike stood in the window of his bedroom. Through the years he had gathered a small fortune and could effort a formidable mansion. Nobody knew exactly what he did to make so much Munny and it was better that way since the old Cike was an assassin. Kings paid him huge sums to get their enemies taken out.Parricide4 years ago in Horror More Like This
A light breeze rustled in the woods. He closed his eyes and inhaled deeply. With a sigh he exhaled again.
"You are still too loud!"
He opened his eyed and turned around. A woman was standing in his bedroom he had not seen in a long time. She was dressed completely in red and had put a hand on her hip. "You'll never be a good assassin."
"Right the welcome I have expected from you", said the woman. She hid her face behind a semi-transparent red veil.

Unfortunately for him, Momo didnt have any school that day, and so she had no one to pinch for their misdeeds.

Thus, she is of nobility. However, Lillian does not let this get to her ego. She's quite humble and down-to-earth actually. In all honesty, she feels titles and ranks are ridiculous.
