More like a security blanket, the only thing that kept her from breaking down into a bowl of vampire dust.
Why Mara kept it, she had no clue. The man who gave it to her was long gone, and she couldn’t say she liked him much anyway. Still, she sighed as she dug the cloak out from the bottom of her chest, in the Dark Brotherhood sanctuary. It was there because she was trying to grow out of it…but she needed it now. She needed the comfort of that man- of that assassin, as she carried out her duties as an assassin herself.
“Go, and end that fool’s miserable life!!”
Of course, it was quite noticeable how hard it was for her to choke out her words, but Astrid, whose words came out like a dagger, wanted Cicero dead. And, more importantly, she wanted Mara to have the honor.
She wrapped the worn cloak around her shoulders, inside out like she always wore it, so as not to draw attention to the red fabric with a b

I stare at this confining wall,
Thinking about how I lost it all.
In this defining moment I feel myself fall.
Deshi, deshi , basara, basara.
Here I am sitting in this prison cell,
Wondering how it is I fell.
Fell from grace and straight to hell.
Deshi, deshi , basara, basara.
At these walls my angry soul batters,
As the chain on my hands and feet clatters,
As if this prison really matters.
Deshi, deshi , basara, basara.
Release is in my control,
No one dictates to me my soul.
As I fly from this hellish dream,
Freedom is my only scream.
Time to rise, time to succeed,
Justice and vindication my only need.
Deshi, deshi , basara, basara.
"What does that mean?"

It had been six month since your Uncle Zanigata had sent you in, as undercover, to the Lupin gang as a hacker that wanted to work for the famous Lupin. At first you were happy to help and stop a thief. That was until you got to know them. They weren't the evil villains you had pictured them as. Yes they stole, but they never hurt anyone. Lupin had this code and never killed anyone. You had come to like the group and had gone rogue. You haven't been reporting in to your uncle and avoiding his attempts to contact you.
Lupin walked into the room followed by Jigen and Goemon. "Hey kiddo. How's that job going?"
You looked up from the computer. "Just about there. I'll have all the security cameras and doors ready for you guys to break into the store tonight."
Jigen walked over leaning on the back of your chair looking at the screen. "You sure it won't screw up and lock us out."
You looked back at the computer hiding your blush. Okay maybe there was another reason you came to like the

You were beyond concerned, you were frightened. Never before had Antonio acted this way.

"Antonio, talk to me," you pleaded. You watched the country take one breath, slow and ragged; then another that was equally tortured.
You were begging and you knew it. Tears pricked in the back of your eyes, threatening to spill over. You couldn't stand to see him in so much pain yet you had no idea how to help him.
He continued to ignore you, opting instead to stare blankly at the coming dawn.

"I know you can't, but I. . ." Artemis held onto him tightly, refusing to let go. His presence was the only thing that kept her sane, if that was even the right way to describe it. If he left, her world would crumble beneath her. She couldn't bear the idea that she would never see him again, or, if she did, they would be enemies.
"So then what's the problem?" His voice was harsh; Wally was simply trying to drive her away now. He had his loyalties to think of. If he sympathized with her, if he did what his heart commanded him to do, then he would be in the same position as her, abandoned by everyone he knew. Every second tore him apart, and she was to blame. She was the one tearing his heart in two. And, although it was painful, he had to get

All is gone(In memory of the victims of the 7/20/2012 shooting in Aurora, Colorado)All is gone3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
The morning comes, a pale sun brightens my room
and in shock and pain, I awake from a dark nightmare
But I understand that the void that fills this room
also occupies my heart, and it's more than I can bear
Gone are the lives of the dreaming innocent
Gone are the lives of the fighting, strong-willed men
All who followed the myth into a room for entertainment
and fell victim to the atrocities of a madman
All is gone...
Mourn the great loss of those who believed
Pray for those who face the trails of death
Despite our efforts, such pain cannot be relieved
as we watch our friends choke on their own breath
All is gone...
Yet, with all that's happened, we should not lose hope
For a hero taught us to have faith and to endure
So many are the deaths with which we need to cope
But we shall not let them become the poison to our cure
The lost lives will be remembered as heroes
Who have saved ours and taught us to live
That Voice (Star Wars - Boba Fett, Ailyn)Her earliest memory is an impossible one: that of her father. He left her, and her mother, when she was only an infant, but he is deep and secure within her memory. He is unforgettable.That Voice (Star Wars - Boba Fett, Ailyn)2 years ago in Drama More Like This
The only memory she has of her father is the memory of the night he left her forever.
What she first recalls, however, is her mother's voice, talking to him at the door: "What are you doing here?"
Her father's disembodied reply had been flat, almost mechanical, and as cold as the night outside. As a babe she had chilled to hear it, her whimpers silenced by its stark monotone. "Sintas," he said in the icy voice, "you will let me pass."
"If this is about your possessions, I threw them away."
"Did you, now? I don't think you disposed of all of them.'
There was then the sound of a slight scuffle, then a strange, inhuman visage came into her view, where it towered above her. She was lying on the floor on a thin blanket and could only stare up at him. He knelt down over her, until his blank mask filled her fi

Alone in her glass box, Emily was awoken by the lights switching on. It was strange because it was not feeding or experimentation time. She squinted at the lights and her vision had cleared. It was one of the Espada, Nnoitra Gilga. He stood there menacingly outside of the box, just staring at her. Emily had a bad feeling in the pit of her stomach. She looked around nervously for Szayel but he was not there. "Aren't you gonna' say, 'Hello'?" the Espada nearly growled at her. "Uh, sure." the woman squeaked, "Hi there Nnoitra " He said coolly, "Call me whatever you like." "Uh Okay " Emily trailed off in utter confusion.
Somehow, he had opened the glass box and entered. Emily started to panic and tremble. She tried to get as far away from him as possible but she was already in a corner. He walked slowly to her and, oddly, he cooed to her. She did not know what to do. Nnoitra was standing over her and immed

“No,” I said.
Curiously, I got up from my living room chair and crossed to where my brother-in-law stood. Maxim’s youngest son called him over from the kitchen. He left all his curiosity at the window to answer the beckoning child, so I stood alone peering out into the day.
My breath stopped.
A black Cadillac had pulled up to the street curb. I watched in fear as a soldier, clad in official U.S. army uniform exited from the passenger seat. From my perch at the window, I couldn’t see her face but I it was a female. Two more people came out of the back of the car: the one another soldier, the other in a more casual dress. I could feel my heart beat against my chest as the two soldiers strode towards our door. The driver stayed in the car and the casual man stood just inside the front gate to our yard.

The sun's rays warmed the road as the yellow taxicab drove up to the entrance of Wayne Manor. Stopping at the gate, the passenger doors opened, allowing Matt, Eddie and Charlotte to step outside. Heading for the trunk, Eddie reached for his friends' bags and handed them out to both of them, slamming the trunk shut after. As Eddie and Charlotte walked up to the gate, Matt reached into the back of his trousers and retrieved his wallet. Feeling how each note was folded, so he could tell the difference between the notes, he pulled out the amount required and handed it to the cab driver.
"Keep the change" Matt insisted, getting a grateful nod from the cab driver as he walked away. Reaching the gate, Eddie noticed a speaker attached to the wall beside it. Pressing the button beneath the speaker, he heard a static sound on the other.

"Y-yes Naruto?" she timidly looked up from her half eaten bowl of ramen, wondering why the cheerful boy had suddenly decided to start paying attention to her when earlier he had been completely absorbed with some joke he had been telling the pale skinned former ANBU sitting next to him.
"You okay?" he asked, cocking his head to the side curiously as he waited for her reply.
Sitting besides the blue-haired heiress, her fang-faced teammate stiffened. Why, however, Hinata wasn't quite sure, but it was hard to miss due to the fact that they were a large group sitting at a relatively small table for their numbers; as a result, Kiba's shoulder had been pressed up against hers, so every time he moved, she could feel it. Being the girl she was, though, Hinata didn't pry into what might be bothering him, but she did notice a few times that he would turn an

Tenshi roamed the surrounding area, same as always. She limped around but where was there to go? She screamed as loud as her voice could go on, but no one heard her.
For two days she repeated these actions, slowly making her insane. She felt no ray of hope, no wisp of her precious wind. There was no freedom in those dark hallways, there was no nothing to depend on but herself it seemed.
The battle with Sasuke had rendered her absolutely useless. Only Kabuto now gave her the daily attention she needed. He only really cared about her in the hell-hole where Orochimaru held her at.

"What is wrong, Robin?" Starfire asked. She had a feeling that he was having the second thoughts.
