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

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

"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
Sarah and Jimmy PART SIXThe lights flashed on and the sound of boots crunching on the tile floor was all to be heard in the interrogation room. 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.

"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. He snickered under his cold demonic breath, "I've been watching you for a while now Kara, waiting for those last grains of sands to

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.
"She hasn't noticed me yet," Karl mumbled. "How st

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.

It wore the kid out though, so Nick would play until he heard a small yawn escape from the boy's lips. It was only the second round, so they had a few more rounds to go before Ellis would get tired. Nick glanced behind his shoulder at the boy, not paying attention to the statue he was about to run into.

"Heh, I told ya' I could catch ya', Nick."
Nick rolled his eyes when the boy reached out and tapped him on the chest and hollered 'TAG' in his thick southern accent. He gave him a head start, looking up at the sky before pulling his suit coat off and laying it carefully on the bench.
"I smoke too much to be playing this goddamn game "
Nick muttered under his breath before unbuttoning a few buttons on his shirt and running after Ellis.

It sounded like stone hitting stone. Crunching noises followed with each step. There was also the sound of a man humming.

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.

I was a complete wreck when I found your letter. I cried for hours non-stop, I wouldn't leave our room to eat, and I would never be able to sleep. Ask anyone! But you can't, right? Because you left. Why? Why would you leave me here? Without you!
I know that we've been together since we were born. I meant for it to be that way! Do you honestly think that I couldn't have just left and made my own friends all those years? We were together because I wanted to stay with you, Kaoru. I wanted to be there with you and protect you from harm and care for you to make up for it. I wanted to be the older brother that you adored because whenever I was around, nobody would be able to hurt you.
But I can't do that when you're not even here for me to protect. Is it because we were 'drifting apart'? Is that really how you see it? Call me dumb, but I can't see how you thought I would ever be strong enough to leave you. It's like some sort of plague to you. You talk about it like it's de

Ted didn't like thinking about how much time had passed since that day that would live on forever in the history of the until recently named Thneedville. He was twenty four years old now, a strapping young man with the kind of height his grandfather would be proud of. He was lean, muscular where it mattered but not overly so. Unfortunately, as he had gotten older, and spent so much time reading and studying for his degree in business college he had ended up needed glasses.
His mother blamed his genetics, but Ted didn't mind that much. "They make me look smarter!" he had joked the day he'd gotten his rectangle glasses from the eye doctor.

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.
