Sickly SweetI could remember moving into this neighbourhood like it was just yesterday. Actually, when I think about it, it wasn't that long ago. Must've been about seven months ago when I first arrived. It seemed perfectly normal. I had friendly neighbours, a nice house and a fairly decent job at the gas station in the nearby town.
Although all of my neighbours seemed cheerful and friendly, there was one specifically who seemed kinder than all of them. Her name was Amanda Robinson, and she lived in the house opposite mine.
She looked about twenty, the same age as me. Her long hair was a light brown colour, just like mine, and her eyes were a moss green, also like mine. We both had fair skin, although hers was slightly paler. A warm smile was always present on her face and for some reason, she always had a few peppermint sweets in her jeans pocket.
I remember first meeting her on the day I moved in. She offered me a peppermint and I gladly accepted. I noticed she didn't eat one herself, but though
The Tapping Next DoorFor most of my life I had lived in the same apartment. It was on the third floor and overlooked the busy city. It was also directly next to another apartment, which means you could hear everything going on behind the right-hand side bedroom wall.The Tapping Next Door1 year ago in Short Stories More Like This
I would occasionally hear faint noises coming from behind the wall. There would be scraping, which I assumed was the sound of a chair being pulled along a wooden floor.

It was loud and frantic usually, like someone trying to get attention. I always thought it was a young child doing its best to piss off its parents, but I was never sure. Mostly becaus

Tobi had once again lost Deidara. He was always walking off, leaving Tobi behind. It was like Deidara took advantage of every opportunity he got to get away from Tobi. Normally, whenever Tobi found Deidara, he was in deep thought and obviously didn't want to be disturbed. This time, it was different.
'Senpai!' called Tobi. 'Senpai, where are you?'
Deidara didn't answer, he never did. Tobi continued to search the forest, looking for any sign of his senpai.
Tobi froze before he could finish. He had found a small clearing, and his senpai lying on the ground. His hair was loose and his clothes were torn slightly. Blood was spilling onto the ground from various wounds on his body. Bruises covered his body and his eyes were closed. Frankly, he looked dead.
Under his ma
