Story Commission: MaeyinZander took a deep breath in, his lungs tried to ingest the air around him as quickly as they could. They needed to keep him up to par with this skilled fight. If not, he feared he would never be able to redeem himself in the eyes of her.
This woman was like his sister, so he always liked to impress her. To show off to her and most importantly beat her in everything that they did together. He needed her to live, knowing that, if he ever got harmed she would be able to cure him with the bond that their magic had made to each other. They loved each other. They were after all, each other’s best friends.
“Zander, you’re not going to win!” Maeyin yelled out to him, tauntingly.
Maeyin held her ground, looking at the man that had been with her though everything. He was the most important person in her life, besides her family .She always enjoyed these little skirmishes they had because the outcome would always lean in her favor.
She twirled around, the wind catc
Chapter Commission: ms-laika (1/2)He remembered how the skin of the fruit glimmered in the setting sun. Hanging loosely from a branch, the crimson fruit swung, becoming loose with the strengthening wind. It taunted him with its potent freshness. It begged him to go pick it, enticing him with its desirable aroma.Chapter Commission: ms-laika (1/2)3 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
He could no longer resist the urge and ran out from the safety of the trees, inching his way closer to his fate. Why should he continue to hide? His parents had died and he was now all alone so for what purpose did he have to live? He knew fully that entering the immortals castle and stealing the Queen’s apples would sentence him to death. He longed for death and the dim light within his heart that wished to be extinguished.
Looking around, darting his eyes in opposite directions, he focused on the sacred tree. His appetite growled with hunger, seeing the final meal approaching. The skin on his body grew cold and the adrenaline made his fingers shake with th
Story commission: Rini-tanPandora was a duchess but you would never expect such a fact by the way the townspeople treated her. She was not royalty but her father had been closely bonded with the king until his death long ago.Story commission: Rini-tan3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
The townspeople however thought of her as a bad omen, a walking nightmare. Bad luck followed wherever she went and they knew she was hiding something from them, something dire but they could never prove it.
Pandora sat on a bench, the citizens of the town walking swiftly by her. The ones with shops set up eyed her angrily and worryingly. She sighed and pulled her rosy hair to the front of her chest and began to stroke it in a tense habit.
She knew bad luck followed her but it was something that she had no power over. It was a curse set upon her for a bad deed that she had done as a child. It was a secret she kept locked inside of her mind, never wishing to let it out for the world to know.
She was not as innocent as people assumed her to be. They assumed she was just bad luck, which

She shrugged as foods were still foreign to her.Story Commission: BunnyBunHime3 years ago in Profiles More Like This
She glanced around the table at all the kids she ate lunch with during school. Seiya and Kaya sat right next to her. If they ever figured out she had actually been their beloved doll from their childhood, she did not know how they would respond. She had been Kaya’s treasured doll throughout Kaya’s childhood. She was taken everywhere with the young human girl but when Kaya grew older, she was put in the toy chest. She longed to be in her owner’s arms again and on one stormy night, she wished with all her might that she could be human. A crack of thunder was heard and her wish was granted. She became a human but was made to understand that the only thing that kept her human was her pink bunny headband.
Story Commission: Tsuzuya (2)Riya looked at Kiriya, she was caught in a peculiar situation and she didn’t know what to say. It looked exactly like it did and as much as she yearned to be in this position with him; Kazuya had made the move first. It was obvious to her and everyone in the room that the way he acted signified he was jealous but if he cared about her, why did he not show it until another male had made a move first? It made Kiriya come off as territorial to a possession that was not owned by him.Story Commission: Tsuzuya (2)3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
“What’s up with you?” Kazuya asked, clearly annoyed that his advance on her was interrupted.
Kiriya knew that his cover was now blown, the feelings he had for this woman was now out in the open. He could think of nothing to solidify what his jealousy had overcome him to do. He had always loved Riya, always wanting to hold her close but he could never get close to her because he feared of what she would think of him when he told her that he was in fact a prince. Would she run away? His f

Alkazar chuckled, “Did you throw yer bra at him like all de other girls?”
Katherine kept quiet, growing annoyed until she blurted out, “He’s taking Kori to the ball! Not me…he was supposed to go with me but I saw the way he looked at her, so I gave him an out and he took it.”
“Oh,” Alkazar said softly, scratching his head anxiously. “I thought he had asked you out already though? So why would he make that decision if he liked someone else?”
Katherine sighed, “Oh, really? Well it doesn’t matter, he likes Kori better.”
Alkazar tried to lighten the mood,” Don’t worry, there’s a lid for every pot, eh?”
Katherine sat down on her front porch, defeated, “I feel more like a wok, really.”
Alkazar sat down next to her, rubbing her back supportively, “Oh, come on. You won’t find yer knig
Story Commission: cddmanfulAiko stuck her tongue out in concentration. Crouched over, she bent her knees. Her hands dangled and her hair fell to her chest. Her eyes shifted rapidly in opposite directions until they settled right center.

Her eyes focused carefully on the fish in front of her, the cat tail that attached itself to her bottom began to get wet as it submerged itself in the glossy blue tinted water. It was very cold liquid, causing the hairs on her tail and feline ears to stand on end. She wiggled her nose as it acquired an itch.
Of course, she would get an itch during the most pivotal moment of the hunt. The itch though, it took over her mind. The urge was so much for her to take that she had no choice but to raise her shoulder up and rub it against her nose. This gave the fish, which was almost within her grasp, a warning and it began to swim faster.
Story Commission: CemeterychanRmma wiggled his soft ears as the wispy clouds cushioned his face, caressing his skin with its gentle breeze. The elements of heaven were much more pronounced with each movement appearing in a slow, methodical motion. Rmma loved heaven but he was a sacrificial lamb, destined to be killed once he reached twenty years of age. He did not comprehend the strange aura of death, so such a heavy truth did not infect his mind. He was ultimately carefree, able to do whatever he pleased as everyone knew his time here was short. He was treated very well and his life was simple and easy. He shifted position, rolling around as the earnest sunlight of the heavens warmed his face.Story Commission: Cemeterychan3 years ago in Profiles More Like This
He smiled as he began to tumble on the clouds faster now. It reminded him of the times he had done this with his brother, Nergal. He missed his brother as he was his only kin. His brother had been sent to hell as a spy, to scout what was going on there. He constantly worried a
Story Commission: LilMissStitches“What kind of name is Face?” a voice was heard saying.Story Commission: LilMissStitches3 years ago in Profiles More Like This
“I don’t know, but she is so strange. She said she’s from a circus but I think her parents didn’t want her so they named her something stupid on purpose.”
“Well I heard she ran away from the circus but I bet you anything the circus kicked her out because she was too weird.” Another voice said from her right.
“Face, do not listen to them,” said a young female voice and Face turned toward a classmate with flowing hazel hair and perfect hazel eyes. What was someone so beautiful and normal doing talking to her?
Face sighed, looking around the classroom, wishing that she could have been someone different. She wouldn’t have picked this life for herself if she had a choice. She knew she wasn’t normal and appeared strange but the other kids treated her like she was this way on purpose. It was just a tragic accident. She w

Her parents had left her in this house alone. She did not know if they were alive or dead. It did not really matter to her since they had never been with her from the moment she would have been able to remember them.
She looked back towards the laughing children. They were all around thirteen and had always had their parents there to comfort them if they cried, to console, motivate and carry them through hardships. Why then, was she destined to be on her own? Was she that much of a burden even at birth to her parents? All she could thank them for was a huge amount of money they left her with which included this large house and a horde of caretakers. The money and comfort she could live without if it meant she could have her parents to love.

Story Commission: VaniraaLuna moved her eyes shyly over to the man walking next to her. He was very handsome. His black hair brought out the color of his forest green eyes. She wondered what had moved this man to come to her rescue like he did. She would have never guessed that humans were such heroic creatures and it intrigued her to learn more about him.Story Commission: Vaniraa3 years ago in Profiles More Like This
Luna heard the purring from the cat she had in her arms and she directed her gaze downwards to see the creature rubbing its furry skin on her. She smiled, petting it with her index finger.
“It looks like that cat is going to be your new friend. Have you named it yet?”
Luna looked at him and cocked her head, wondering how this human didn’t know the name of its own home creature.
“Its name is cat.” She said sweetly.
The man chuckled causing Luna to tilt her head slowly to the side which resulted in her light blue hair to fall to one side, exposing her neck. The man moved close to her and s

The smoky smell became more intense. As she inhaled it through her nose, it choked and squeezed her throat, eliminating the viable element she needed to survive. She shot up from her bed and immediately looked around with her one working eye. She threw herself off her bed, pulling her body towards the door. She panicked as she could not find her wheelchair and she was forced to drag the dead weight of her legs behind her.
“Mother! Father! Where are you? Help me!” she screamed.
Over the roaring of the fire, it was impossible for her to even hear her own voice and she knew it was impossible for them to hear her, as well. Though, they will come looking for her, right? They had wished they never gave birth to her, to never have a ch

He looked down at the blood soaked body of his sister, her skin now cold. Her long wavy hair was caked with blood, making it stick to her face. His young, innocent sister had been caught up in the calamity of their father.
Lio knew the men that had forced their way into his house were there for his father, to collect money that his predecessor never bothered to pay back. They never even hinted he needed to get his sister, Xio out of the house and to safety.
His father was a dead beat and brought only violence into the house. Men like that, he thought, should be sterilized, never allowed to bring innocent souls into this world. His father did nothing positive for them. Well, unless being an abusive, drunk and teaching your children how to steal just so they could f
Story Commission: SnowMishibariSweat beaded down her face, the salty taste entering her mouth, resting on her tongue. The ears on her head expanded as her tail flicked around wildly.

He was hiding in the shadows somewhere.Story Commission: SnowMishibari3 years ago in Profiles More Like This
She leaned her body over, resting her palms on her knees as she arched her back, gulping in the crisp air around her.
“You are getting sloppy.” A voice said, the tone taunting her ears.
She quickly regained an upright position and stood still, using her core strength to freeze that moment in time.
The world stilled, the leaves upon the trees ceased to move and the animals stopped to see the altercation take place in front of them. She closed her eyes, sensing and feeling her surroundings, trying to pick up any movement that did not get influenced by her spell.
Her artic wolf instincts picked up a sound and her ears moved to the left. She threw her body to the

“You know this is never going to work,” his buddy whispered harshly.
Aiden just laughed, “Oh, on the contrary.” He looked confidently over towards a gathering group of women, exchanging whispers of their lustful thoughts about the group of soldiers.
“Watch and learn boys,” he finished; walking over to the women whose faces gleamed and blushed as he made his way into their personal space. He picked out one in particular that he took a liking to, “Hello, what world did you fall from? Your beauty is heavenly.” His blonde hair hid one of his eyes from their view, intriguing them more.
The group of girls giggled as the young woman he had picked, responded to him, “Hello there, how are you?” Her cheeks grew red as she eyed his body up and
Story Commission: MaeyinI could smell the air around me, the stench of blood filled the air and as I looked down at my body I could see my chest begin to glow. My core was signaling to me that there was another unicorn close by, but the stench of death that infested my nose led me to believe that I was being directed towards a ghastly scenario.Story Commission: Maeyin2 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
I knew something was wrong but as a young unicorn myself I had not matured enough to sharpen the power within me. If another unicorn was being killed, I felt horrible to know
I most likely wouldn’t be able to do anything about it.
I reached my hand up and rubbed the horn that protruded from my head as my legs walked me closer to the scene. I scrunched my toes within my shoes as I walked closer and knelt down beside a large rock. The scene that I had thought to be true as I walked here was becoming more of a reality.
A young unicorn, her body sprawled out on the floor, her horn being sawed off by two evil men is what my eyes showed. There was no hope for me to run
Story Commission: Mani-HimeKenna sighed; she did not want to be in Japan for Christmas. She wanted to be back in her hometown, with her friends, to have fun in the snow and gossip about all the boys they had crushes on. She yearned to be back home, to see the man her heart longed for.Story Commission: Mani-Hime2 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Naoki was perfect. He was everything she wanted in a man and she wished he would see that she even existed. Every time they were at school all the girls fawned over him and she was always pushed into the back of the group. She yearned to talk to him, to get to know him but it would never happen if she was stuck in this place, to visit family that they hardly knew.
It was always awkward coming to see family that you hardly knew anything about. Days full of uncomfortable conversations, high expectations and constant questions. Where was she going to school? Was she going to college? She had to go to a university. What was she going to major in? Did she have a man in her life? It made her shake with annoyance; she looked up at her mot

Tears formed in Ryo’s eyes and she could feel her heart pumping blood quickly through her veins. Her eyes stung and her vision blurred as she remembered his sick, fragile body in the hospital bed. His skin was void of any color and he lacked the strength left to fight. She recalled him gasping for his last labored breath until his body finally collapsed, releasing his soul to enter the other world, a universe of pleasant memories and loved ones. This should comfort her but instead, it brought her more tears. Her legs began to tremble and grow weak and she grasped the tombstone to keep herself from falling. It was a cold hard truth that gastric cancer had taken her father and as she leaned down and softly rubbed the tombstone, she wished she had been taken,

The Professor knew it was obvious why she was acting this way; there was so many things he wished to tell her, but was sworn to secrecy to withhold.
“What ails you, Freya?”
She held her tongue for a couple moments, inspecting the robotic arms that had replaced her human limbs, “Isn't it quite obvious?”
The Professor tilted his head, furrowing his eyebrows, “If that was so, I would be trying to mend you.”
Freya moved her foreign fingers; the sound of the metal clanked together, “Everyone within this town treats me like dirt. I did not choose to be this weapon of death. They act as though I begged to be a weapon of war,” she glanced over at him, “Tell me Professor, what makes them think they can treat me this way and get away with it?”

The love he felt for her was reflected in every star and as vast as the universe. Every time he looked at her, he thanked the Gods for granting him the wish he had made on that shooting star a year ago.
“I love you.” He said warmly.
Moshu’s face blushed red and she raised her large kimono sleeves up to her face to hide the fact that she was so extremely in love and infatuated with him. Everything he did for her made her heart race and when they made eye contact for more than a couple of seconds, she felt their hearts connect. They were soul mates, no doubt about it. The fact that the Gods smiled down upon their blossoming love made the sensations she felt with

He looked at her worryingly, “I’ve heard that tone before…what is wrong?”
She looked away, “Is there something you are not telling me? Like something that I should know about?”
Moshu knew that this would be the ultimate test on their relationship. It was one thing for her to not know anything about his past or why he had found her but it was another to have her ask him bluntly. If he denied anything after she had opened the door for him to walk through then she knew they would be in trouble.
“How on earth did you find out?” Toshu asked. He had no idea how she would even know about what his orders were, but he knew this could be the only reason she would ask such a question. He wanted so desperately to keep her in the dark so he could save her the worry. He had wanted to tell her so many times, to

She moved her fingers against the soft petals of a rose; the pink hue was so delicate. With one hard press of her finger it would break apart, and Bella wondered how her life could very well end up like the fate of all the withering; because at first, so beautiful, to only lose what once made them unique.
She looked up towards the sky yet again, contemplating something that was foreign to her, but a concept that intrigued her.
Her mind was wandering again…
A hand waved in front of her face, snapping her out of a potentially beautiful delusion, “Bella, didn’t you hear me calling you? I called your name many times.” He looked rather annoyed, but soon caught himself, “Are you feeling alright?”
Bella inhaled the sweet and enticing aroma of the swarm
