on her stretcher.
Revolving blue lights
illuminate her wrinkled face.
Frozen by amazement and curiosity,
they watch her leaving
in the morning fog.
From the hall
resonate along the spiral staircase,
follow a corridor and violate
Empty boxes, gutted capsules
litter the ground.
Near the bed lays a photo of
her deceased love,
on her rocking chair, a letter.
In her coffin
Anna has a good laugh.

Au détour d'un chemin d'une forêt touffue,
Je vois une image de mort apparaître :
Un marais triste rempli de passages traîtres,
Un espace ouvert, morne et tout nu.
Tels des squelettes, les troncs d'arbres pourris
Tendent leurs branches cassées vers le ciel.
Une brume lourde couvre ce paysage immatériel.
Les nuages las roulent dans le ciel gris.
Tout dans ce marais est d'une teinte délavée.
L'herbe desséchée rampe sur un sol de vase.
L'eau placide n'a jamais connu d'extase.
Et quelque animal à l'air mauvais
Rôde tout autour en cherchant quelque os
D'un élan qui fut englouti par la boue.
Durant la nuit, on entend hurler les loups
Et le clapotis calme, mystérieux des eaux.
À travers la brume, on voit les pins
Debout tels un mur. Ils délimitent le marais.
Je tourne le dos à cet endroit secret
Et je repars dans l'autre sens sur le chemin.
Et pourtant, j'ai entendu un oiseau chanter
Dans les ci

After staring at the sheet of paper for what seemed like an eternity, she finally picked up her pen and decided to finally write down her answers after much thinking and head-scratching.
What is your ideal date?
She blinked at the question, but gave it no thought since she already wasted too much time doing just that and scribbled down her late answer.
"Well, there has to be lots of food involved! That's the most important thing in a date, right? And there absolutely has to be wrestling or fighting of some kind! An arm-wrestle is the minimum! Although I'd prefer to have a no-holds barred fight. Or a piggyback!"
What sort of things do you like?
She grinned, thinking up all the yummy and fun things she loved.
"I really, really, really like food and chocolate. Or fish, or oranges! Either one, or all of them together. Like some yummy orange sushi with chocolate sauce! Just no leaves, since they taste weird. And I love fights! They're really fun or watch and play in!

After a day's rest in Prontera Inn to tend to her burned hand and recuperating, Ayra was back on the task of finding the missing GM Li. However, she had to adjust her thinking after the battle against the Cat Bandits in the Payon Castle District. While it matched up to the clues given, a Siege Castle would be fairly obvious, even for the limited minds of the Cats. Perhaps the clues weren't meant to be taken at face value? Feeling fully rested and capable of using her right hand normally, Ayra left the Inn search through vendor wares for any additional aid. The experience in the Payon Castle District taught her that she'd be dealing with numerable foes at any given moment. As someone who doesn't normally use a shield, this placed her at a disadvantage, even though she was more than capable of slaying them in one blow. With that in mind, she made a few purchases for special Genetic-produced items. After a routine stop to the Prontera Cathedral to pray and whistling for the return of Aura

There were many rumors flying around Rune-Midgard of a hostile takeover in Al De Baron, specifically tied to Kafra Headquarters. The rumor centered around a rogue gang of cats, mainly hailing from the distant and recently discovered Malangdo Island. The idea of a coup by a gang of "Cat Bandits" was a little far-fetched, however, and wasn't taken seriously at all, likening it to pranks by the Rogue Guild. However, people began to notice that the Kafra Service showing signs of problems, which the rivaling Cool Event Corporation was quick to pounce on. Al De Baron soon became overrun with villainous felines, terrorizing the locals and performing guerrilla tactics on adventurers, utilizing their heightened agility and ingenuity to bully weaker fighters and stall against more powerful foes. They still had the advantage, as they held key representatives of the Kafra Corporation bound rather extravagantly, up to their necks and gagged with cloth to keep them nearly quiet, outside of muffled s

There was a childs drawing, an old butterfly mask, tons of picture books and some photos. "geez, it's like I am holding a garage sale." she mumbled while looking through the contents of the box.
Eirik just finished with a good and refreshing shower. He had only a shirt and some boxers on, he bursted in the room where Xion was, to start the hunt for his trousers. '' Oi Xion, what's up with all these mess?'' He waddled around the room, trying not to step on Xion's stuff.
Xion started tu put the things on the floor back into the box. "Just some old stuff I found.." she sighed. The she picked up a photo that was neatly put in a wodden fram. the picture depicted a man and woman with a child who were smiling. Xion stood silent as she looked at the picture.

That damn clock will be the death of me I sware! I thought with aggravation, bringing my hand up and slamming it down on the nightstand next to my bed. I missed at first, hitting the edge of the wood with a groan. Limp and already defeated I knocked it over and rolled. The thing clung for life through the plug behind the small dresser and made a low groaning BEEeeeeeeuuu as it lost energy and came undone. I flipped the covers back over my head and sighed, listening to the sweet silence that engulfed my room.
I always slept with the blinds as shut as they could be because I was not a morning person. I hated how bright the sun looked over New Bark Town when it broke past the mountains and glittered over the nearby ocean. My eyes took forever to adjust, more so than anyone else I knew, so I resorted in tricking myself into thinking it was nighttime longer so that I could save my

A hot shower that was all I needed. Something to take away the chills of the night and calm the achiness of my back and shoulders. And yet I hated the idea of getting a hotel room in the only place that provided for one: the pokemon center. I had waited a while after storming off in the direction of the pokemon league gates, just to be sure that Gold was tucked into his room for the night. He didn't need to know that we would both be staying at the pokemon center. Especially if he was so determined to talk to me about everything that had happened.
Which was nothing now, I thought madly, scrubbing a whole handful of shampoo into my hair. The pokemon center provided you with quite a few bottles despite trainers merely passing through, and so I took to opportunity to waste as much of the stuff as I wanted. With long hair like mine, it felt good to have a fresh cleansing every now and again, and the smell of tea tree was overwhelmingly soothing.

He found himself lying in a thin flood of the middle of a quiet rainy town, staring at the smoky grey clouds in the sky and falling rain drops upon him. Slowly raising himself halfway with a bit of a struggle, he glanced around. The sight of everything looked almost colourless. The streets seemed to be completely deserted. On a gloomy day like this, who wouldn't stay indoors? He made his way onto his feet and held his jacket up from hanging off, feeling the heavy drench in his hair and clothing. The rain was not cold, but rather calming. He wished he had an umbrella but it would have been pointless anyway. He wondered what he was doing here on the ground. But, he let the thought pass. He wasn't sure where he was, but it had a familiar feeling, as if he had been here before. Without a destination in mind, he started walking aimlessly, hoping to be somewhere.
Splish, splash. The sound of water dancing all around and beneath his footsteps, and the occasional thunder from above. It filled

In the small town of Littleroot, where there is not much happening, there was a lot of happiness in the air. For it was one of the best days of the year; Valentine's Day. The day that every boy and girl find the courage to confess their feelings to the one they like.
But this year the day was even more special, as the Pokedex Holders would be holding a prom in the evening to celebrate this great day. Everyone was pretty excited about the occasion; everyone except a certain young blonde boy and a certain female brunette.
On the East side of the town, Sapphire and Emerald were at Ruby's house, getting 'beautified' by none other than their fellow Dex Holder. They were all in Ruby's room; Emerald was seeing his reflection in the mirror while looking with an annoyed look at his suit that Ruby sewed for him, while Ruby himself was brushing Sapphire's hair who was sitting on a chair.
The brunette had her arms crossed and she was pouting. "How much longeeeer?" she asked they boy. If she was lu

Among the Wooden Paths,
I stride alone in the Empty Forest,
The wind behind my back,
Blowing softly and pushing me forward.
Moments in time suddenly seem to halt,
As I watch from afar,
The bridge that lies before me,
Am I strong enough to lay my hand?
Across its wooden surface?
Can I cross it?
Find the path hidden in the shadows ahead of me?
Can I find Courage in the darkness so bleak?
To find a light that will guide me?
Seconds fade away.
Across the Bridge,
Across the Gap,
Leading to my pride,
Leading to my Courage,
Leading to my Hope,
Leading to my Love...
