Why yes I'm sick.
Sick of you
Of the lies
Sick of always wearing a disguise.
Sick my my home life
Of the screaming
Sick of the countless failed tries
I'm sick of fighting
Over what will never get done
Sick of the dirty looks
Sick of glances
My names in the air
So they're taking advantage
No, of course I'm fine.
So sick of the lies

Tooth was busy rebuilding her kingdom, with so many new teeth coming in it was sometimes difficult to place the teeth stolen by Pitch to where they belonged. But Tooth loved every second of it, that is of course when she wasn't in the field with Baby Tooth.
North kept busy keeping the somewhat chaotic elves in line as well as managing the yeti's toy production. Designing the toys had become easier, having seen the children awake he found himself newly inspired, seeing greater wonder than ever before.
Invisible- Part 4The cold was pushing in on her, crushing her, devastatingly harsh. Sarah screamed, only to feel the cold entering her mouth and lungs, to see bubbles racing away in dark water.Invisible- Part 46 months ago in General Fiction More Like This
Sarah looked at her hands, frozen stiff in the water, terrified.
My hands can't be turning blue. Not already. It's just a trick of the water. Just a trick.
Sarah kept repeating this to herself, trying to kick herself to the surface. Each dull movement was weak and strained, hardly enough to keep herself from sinking faster.
No! No, no, no, NO!
She struggled again, pushing her dull frozen limbs to their limit and beyond. "PLEASE!" Water rushed into her
Invisible: Part 2 Being invisible sucks…No one sees you, or hears you. You just don't exsist. And what makes it even worse is I'm right here in front of them. I know they see me. The teachers do, my family does. But they don't.Invisible: Part 26 months ago in General Fiction More Like This
Handfuls of kids rushed by the thinker, each in his or her own group, each ignoring her existence, even when one group pushed into her, they only stopped to see it was her before continuing on their way.
It's been months. Can't they get over the fact I'm here? Big whoop. I'm not asking to be the center of attention, but would it kill them to acknowledge me? I'm just a shadow!

Jack struggled to the surface, towing the unconscious girl under one arm. He looked down at her and became even more worried, her lips were turning a pale blue and her skin had no color to it at all. If the water felt cold to even him, he could only imagine what it would feel like to someone like her or Jamie. Looking up, Jack could see the hope of the sun shining though the frigid water, he pushed himself harder than before.
"Jack!" Jamie shouted, seeing the faint outline of his friend's snow white hair. In frenzy Jamie scrambled for the staff Jack had slammed into the ice, sending it into the water.
Invisible- Part 6Sarah! Saaaaarrrahh! Sarah was running, she didn't know where. The voice was calling her, but there was something chasing her. Thousands of tiny feathered creatures were screeching in shrill voices, chasing after her. Their shed feathers whirled around the girl, blocking out the sky and burning her where they made contact with her skin. "Kenny?" Sarah screamed, "KEN! Where are you?" The panicked girl stopped short, "No…" The feathered demons laughed, forming the laughing face of someone she once knew. The demons eyes were boiling red and its grinning maw was bearing glistening silver teeth. It roared once, releasing the remains of bloodshed.Invisible- Part 66 months ago in General Fiction More Like This

Staff in hand, Jack prepared to take flight, pausing only momentarily to cast one last smile at Jamie. "Sandy'll be her soon for ya bud." He whispered, taking off. Jack flew over the town, watching the last of the children falling asleep and being visited by the Sandman.Invisible-Part 56 months ago in General Fiction More Like This

Invisible-Part 9Jack thought carefully about what he was going to say, not wanting to tell Sarah too much on the first day. "Three hints. She needs to guess."

Invisible- Part 7Sarah blinked, covered in a cold sweat. When she had finally fallen asleep the night before, the nightmares had returned. But this time they were different. They were her own memories. Memories of her home before she moved to Burgess. Of her mother, father, her siblings. Of how they were separated. A musical tone sounded from the girls laptop, pulling her from her morose thoughts.Invisible- Part 75 months ago in General Fiction More Like This
FrostOver317 is requesting to chat.
Sarah sighed, unsure of whether she was willing to talk to a stranger. Her mouse hovered over the "accept" button, wavering back and forth. Finally she closed her eyes and clicked.
BrownMouse has accepted your invitation.
Invisible- Part 11Sarah sighed, pulling the hood of her cloak down. "I'm here. Now where are you?" She asked the cold empty air. As if to answer her, the wind began to pick up, whirling the fresh dusting of snow into the air, whipping it around her in a frantic circle. Sarah stepped back instinctively, tripping over something heavy. She looked down immediately at whatever had caused her to lose her balance. "My bag?" She whispered, gingerly picking up the canvas bag she had left behind days before. Noticing something amiss, she reached inside, her fingers brushing against a crisp, cool object. She clutched the object in her hand, drawing it out and displayed iInvisible- Part 115 months ago in General Fiction More Like This

She squealed, her eyes lighting up at the sight of the messy haired girl. "You came!" Cupcake laughed, "Of course I did! Why wouldn't I? Jamie said you were awake so I came over as soon as I could." As Cupcake struggled to get on the bed, Sarah noticed that her leg was in a cast. "Hey, CC? What happened to your leg?" She asked, pulling her up and onto her lap. Cupcake shifted uncomfortably on her lap. "Nothing…" She replied, not looking her cousin in the eyes. Sarah frowned, "Cupcake. WhaInvisible- Part 105 months ago in General Fiction More Like This

Pitch informed the girl arrogantly, "No one can hear you." He lorded over her, spreading the shadows until the girl had curled fearfully against a tree. "Yes. That's it. Embrace your fear, let it consume you." Pitch loomed in closer, his pointed teeth inches from the girl's face. "Boo."Invisible- Part 135 months ago in General Fiction More Like This

Invisible- Part 16Jack watched the family in silence, understanding beginning to dawn upon him. He retreated into the entryway, silently observing as the family broke apart at last. Feeling hollow, he watched as the three females placed three candles in the windowsill. Sarah took a box of matches, striking one against side of the box. The warm flame created a golden glow across her tear stained face, throwing her features into sharp relief. I'm sorry… I miss you so much Daddy… Sarah lit the largest candle, a deep forest green pillar candle scented comfortingly of evergreens and cinnamon. A round, rosy candle was next in line, quickly lighting it as well. SarahInvisible- Part 165 months ago in General Fiction More Like This

"Twelve years ago… I was hardly even old enough to remember her…" Sarah began to unwind her other braid, refusing to look up. "How old are you now?" Jack asked suddenly. "Does it matter? It won't make up for lost time…" The girl muttered, wincing noticeably as she struggled with an elastic hair tie. "I was five years old when she died." She let out a sigh.

She asked darkly, glaring at the shock of white hair in her kitchen. Jack leaned back against the equally knotted chair, cockily swinging his feet on to the table. "Not always. Remind me to tell you about that some time." Sarah slid into another chair, "Ok. You've had your hot chocolate. Now spill. Tell me about the nightmares and how you know about Jamie finding me."

Jack crossed his arms, refusing to budge on his request. Sarah glared back at the teen, "It's none of your business." She growled, "Leave me alone." She began walking away, clearly planning to break into a run. Jack shook his head and sighed, simply holding out his staff and blocking her way. He flipped the knotted wood over his shoulder, "Sarah." He said warningly. "You know who I am. Do you really think that you can get away from me?" He swung the staff

"He's the Guardian of Dreams. It's his job to protect the children from nightmares and to open them up to new worlds." Jack moved out of the window sill to allow a tendril of gossamer dreams to flow into the room.
