Pairing: Nick/Ellis (Though neither of them really know about how deep their feelings go)
His hand was shaking. It was a nervous habit. It was always his right hand. It usually wasn't too much of a problem, since he was ambidextrous. He could hold his cards in his left hand, keep his right hidden. He could keep a poker face, look as emotionless as possible when his mind was rushing every which way, but he couldn't keep his hand from shaking.
When he would shoot a gun or use a weapon, he felt more in control. His hands weren't idle. He could hide the shaking easily. As long as he could keep his mind from wandering too much anyway, he wouldn't have to deal with it. Just kill everything in their path. Run to help his comrades. Rush to fix them up when they needed it. However, he'd noticed something....
Whenever Ellis went down, his hand would shake until he could get him to safety. Whenever Ellis was in bad shape, he'd have to really concentrate to be abl

"Ye'w oughta' stop bein' an ass, Nick. It still ain't my fault for the whole damn thing."
Nick squeezed tight on the Ziploc bag, crushing the crust of his sandwich into the inner shape of his fist.
"It is your fault. We wouldn't have this fucking mess if you could remember one goddamn thing besides that idiot friend of yours. Who's probably dead by now anyway, so stop hoping that you're going to find him or some sappy shit. It's not going to fucking happen."
Rochelle and Coach stopped mid-conversation. They knew it was more than likely true, but neither of them wanted to crush the boy's hopes. It

"Alright. Alright. Alright."
Click. Click. Click.
That is all Nick had heard for only God knows how many hours. Brash curses and victorious whoops, accompanied by excessive amounts of gun fire and blood splatter. Ellis had been glued to the TV since he got home from work. Desperate to try his new game as soon as possible. It was even safe to say the hick had showered at work, being unusually clean when returning home, just so it wouldn't get in the way of his game playing.
Ellis had taken residence in "Nick's chair" because the owner of said chair was playing Solitaire at the kitchen table, at the time the boy had been just too adorably eager for the conman to put up much of an argument, but after growing tired of playing alone he made himself comfy on the well passed worn out couch. He watched the gun, as that's all he could see via First Person-ness, bounce around as the player ran about the m

The doctor pulled up a chair, smiling kindly while holding a clipboard. Hello, Sarah! she exclaimed entertainingly at the small child sitting at the other end of the table. Dead-looking. My name is Dr. Marsh and Im going to ask you some questions! Okay? I brought some cookies so we can share them! Dr. Marsh held a plastic, recyclable plate in one of her hands and she emptied animal crackers onto it, placing it in the center of the table.

The five boys towered over the little girl who was innocently drawing on the dirt with a stick. Her mockingbird heart pounded in her chest as the delinquents stood before where she sat. H Hi. she said nervously.
Hey. Youre that prick Jimmys sister, one of the boys responded, kicking a little dirt at her. Your older bro @#$%ed with our cars; threw a bunch of drugs in the trunk and got us questioned.
Oh ! Um uh Sarah, the six-year-old child, began to feel hot during such a cold climate. She could only stutter and stay where she sat because running would be futile.

She came up to a caged up cell; a sign above it saying Due for termination. Her monotonous eyes held no color in them. She took the keys from her pajama pocket (of course, she still wore Father Lennis long t-shirt after all thats happened). She unlocked the door to the dark cell and went in, meeting cold blackness. Then a pale face shone itself in the blackness; its lips were red and its teeth were pink with red fluid. The girl spoke You dont know me anymore, dont you.
The pale figure in the darkness giggled a little and came in closer to the child.
He doesnt remember me anymore, Sarah thought to herself. They said so.

A young teenage girl was dashing back and forth through the halls, carrying armfulls of clothing to the laundry room. She was panting by the time she loaded the last pile of clothes into a washing machine.Potential Ally I- The Hotel4 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
"Finally done!" Mika sighed, wiping sweat off her forehead with the back of her sleeve. She wandered back up to the lobby, where she sat down heavily on one of the old couches. She seemed perfectly unaware of the looming presence that was following her, immune to the feeling she was being watched. This was only slightly disturbing to the person who happened to be watching her.
Karl shifted in his hiding spot. He was laying on his stomach with his arms crossed under his chin. Arma rested happily on his back. The man had been watching Mika running around the hotel for the past ten minutes.

The lights were dim and the doors locked. Finally, it's closing time as my boss and I leave the store after a long day of selling clothes and shoes till we wanted to pass out on the floor.
"Have a good night, Sarah!" my boss calls after me.
"You too." I say with little energy left in my voice.
After the rush we had today, I was ready to jump into bed and call it a night. As i got to where my car was parked in the parking lot, I reached for my keys, hands shaking in the process since it was pretty cold out. I turned the key to unlock the car and felt as if I was being watched. I looked around quickly and saw no one there.

"What is this place, Heaven?" I took another glance at Mr. Smiles aura, realizing my foolish guess was far from being accurate," This can't be hell, can it? NO, I couldn't have done anything to deserve this!" I cried out with a massive burst of rage and anger, as well as fear and sorrows. "DAMN MY MEMORIES! WHY CAN'T I REMEMBER MY PAST LIFE!" the foul spirit just stood there as my motionless cold body floated toward his vile presence. If my heart was still beating it would be pounding in my chest, like the sound of a herd of tauros trampling across an open plain. The thought of being in hell caused a surge of fear to hit me. Such a burst of emotion would have possibly killed me with a heart attack, if I wasn't already dead. I know that nothing positive could possibly come from that foul ghostly beast, yet for some reason I felt something didn't seem right.

“Mmmhh … Summer vacations are such a bliss,” mumbled the orange haired girl, as she stretched herself on her bed.
She has just been woken up by the warm morning sun rays that shone into her bedroom. She slowly opened her sleepy light-blue eyes and headed to the bathroom. When she got dressed, she headed downstairs and into the kitchen, in order to prepare breakfast for herself and her 10 year old brother. Their parents weren’t at home and they will be away for almost the entire summer vacations – they went on a trip around the world. They were planning to take their two kids – Alys and Kyle – together with them, but these two little lazy-asses preferred to stay at home and play video games. And, since Alys was already 18 years old, their parents decided to please their request and left by themselves.

Yeah...that's what I feel.
But...why is it so dark? I can hardly see...
"Do you really want to see?"
Oh god...that voice again. Why must it follow me? What compels it to tell me such horrible things?
"I can help you, if you wish."
As though the voice knew his true wish, vision returned; not blindingly, but enough to see his surroundings.
Brick walls encased his space, leaning to create what he knew was a tunnel. Lead pipes hung just above him, dripping though he couldn't hear it or smell what the liquid was. The final piece of the puzzle was the decay of everything around him.
A sewer...why the hell am I in a sewer?
"You know why, Bridge Man."
If he could, he would have flinched at the little nickname the voice gave him. To him, it was an insult, a painful reminder of his homelessness.
Even worse, the voice was right. He really did know, but didn't want to remember. Not because he was homeless, but because of a worse tragedy.

Suddenly I heard familiar footsteps around the corner I had just come from. My heart stopped, mind drained, and body froze as I listened to where the sound was going.
It sounded like stone hitting stone. Crunching noises followed with each step. There was also the sound of a man humming. The song sounded familiar, but it wasn’t the type of song you would normally hear like on the radio. It was more of a dark, melodic song, but I couldn’t place it. However, the song didn’t really

"Deary me!" the man cried in his obviously fake over-dramatic tone. "That wasn't very nice at all!"
"You hate humans!" Mika shouted, seeming more shocked than angry. "You'd die before allying yourself with one!" Isn't that why he'd attacked her before in the first place?
Shaking his head as if to clear it, Karl stood, a devilish gleam in his eyes. "I'm not that extreme," he chuckled. "Besides, you're different than the others, aren't you, Mi-ka?" He said her name slowly, as if teasing her. The girl glared at him, rubbing her shoulder. The shoulder where the living statue had stabbed her the last time they met.
"I still don't trust you," she grumbled, taking a step backwards. In response, he took a step forward.
"That's understandable! After all, it's not easy to trust people-"

Mr. FiveI checked my watch as I strolled down the halls of the Midvane Asylum. My supervising officer hadn't told me what I was walking into, unfortunately for me. A male nurse met me at the building office. His scrubs were smeared with what I assume was saliva, and his glasses were uneven on his face. He had no hair on his head, but there was a black soul patch staring at me from his chin.Mr. Five2 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

"Yes, the patient that we called about. You were told what the situation was, weren't you?"

He never looked up from his clipboard on our trip through the Asylum halls, even when he had to step around gurneys and patients. I kept the brim of my hat tipped forward throughout the walk.

He kept repeating your petname over and over, but for the life of you, you couldn't figure out why. You were groggy and his voice was close to your neck, and his breath was a heck of a lot warmer than the air in the room.
You sigh and don't respond, mostly just wanting to sleep.
"Derp. Derp. Egbert, I'm talkin' to you, babe!"
You finally scowl a little and turn over to see his freckled face and bright red eyes.
"Seriously, ya' said you'd get up like an hour ago." He says, leaning down and taking your mouth and kissing you for a moment and then pulling away.
You mumbled something about not wanting to get up, but he doesn't seem to notice, and wraps his arms around your midsection and presses onto you from behind. You murmured something again and turn around into his grasp; this feat alone exhausts most of your energy, and he seems to know that, pressing his lips to your forehead now.

The Once-ler leaned back in his massive, red velvet chair and dragged a hand across his forehead in frustration. Today had been one of those days where everything had gone wrong. It had gone so wrong, in fact, he didn't even want to think about it anymore. He opened his blue eyes and huffed loudly, before leaning forward, and reached for his Martini glass that sat in the centre of his desk but stopped, hand oustretched, not even near touching the glass.
" Norma what have I told you about getting into my drinks?" he asked, a small, easy smile on his face as he rested his head in his hand.
Sitting in the drink sat a tiny lady, and by tiny I do mean tiny. Norma was more or less what you would call a living Thumbelina; so tiny and petite she was that Once-ler could easily scoop her up and hide her in his breast pocket if he so wanted to. The little lady would normally be dressed in dolls clothes, made especially for her by the incredibly tall man.

"Together to the end"
You always filled me up with glee
You were my one best friend
You ended it so abruptly
So it was hard for me to cope
Causing me to fumble in the dark
With little sign of hope
Sadness consumed me
And tears constantly filled my eyes
And then I started to wonder
If what you told me were all lies
Then facing the world without you
Was one of my biggest fears
But if I can make it through these months
Those months will turn to years
The sadness slowly vanished
But anger flooded through my veins
As I sat and tried to figure out
How you could think of leaving me in pain
I was mad at you for leaving
For all those wasted years
Once you used to give me comfort
Now all you cause are tears
It seems like so long since we were friends
But the memories are still clear
And I will hold on to them as long as I can
For they're the last of what I held dear.
