A Sad Sort of Melancholy Melody
By: George Sand
Where should I start but here? I sit here alone, at Frederyks old piano which faces the window. I will not touch the keys and butcher their musicality with my non-ability to harmonize, or play music in general. Right now, there are tears running down my face, and words dying on my lips. However, these words shall live on paper. This short story is meant only for one pair of eyes: mine. But I should start with the background.
Chopin was my friend, and I did love him, more than I have ever loved a man- yet I had basically thrust him into the arms of another with my big mouth and my in

The boys' eyes widened at your hostile tone; your voice had come out as a low growl due to your throat being dry from lack of water. The short, black haired man seemed unfazed by your hostility and continued to stare at you with cold eyes.
"We seek shelter," the black haired man replied in a monotone voice. His grey eyes continued to bore into yours as he slightly nodded his head in the direction where Jean sat. "We have an injured soldier who needs medical aid."
You ceased the staring contest with the short man after a moment of silence, by throwing your dagger into the ground by your bare feet. You let out a grunt and curtly nodded your head at the men.
"(First Name)," you said simply.
The black haired man remained silent for a moment, before replying in a bored tone, "Levi."
"I'm Eren Jaeger," the brunette said.
"Jean Kirschtein," the injured one said, smirking at you.
"A-Armin Arlert," the blonde one stuttered.

BathingIn the quiet forests of Doriath, the sunlight was falling dappled through the leaves high above. The birds were singing, the branches were rustling, small animals were hopping happily through the undergrowth. A slight breeze whispered through the trees, and a small brook murmured nearby. All in all, perfect day in the forest.Bathing4 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Galadriel, however, was unable to enjoy it.
"I feel disgusting," she complained, pulling sharply on her reins to steer her horse around a small bush. "Do you people never wash?"
Her Sindar guides looked offended, but were unsure how to respond. She was a high lady of the Noldor, after all. As usual when in need of guidance, they turned to their lord.
Celeborn sighed quietly and gave Galadriel a mild smile. "We will be in Menegroth very soon, my lady. Be assured that King Thingol's halls have very beautiful baths."
A frown marred the loveliness of Galadriel's face. "We will be in Menegroth in two days. I feel disgusting now." She huffed out a breath and pulled her

It didn't matter which twin you chose right? As long as one went to help with Tamaki...right?
You knew the difference between the twins, you knew they were individuals as much as you and Haruhi were as well as twins. You could tell them apart with ease, and never failed at the 'which one is Hikaru game'. Maybe that's why the three of you were so close... But anyway, even though you knew they were different, that didn't impact on your choice. Why would it, it's not like you had a preference for one of them... right...?
Shaking your head to get rid of the thoughts that were clouding your mind and causing you to blush ever so slightly, you picked an arm to loosen. Gently you withdrew your arm that was linked with Kaoru's ever so slightly.
The boys eyes flicked towards you at the movement, understanding your choice. He nodded at you, taking his arm back completely. He turned to face Haruhi and jogged off to go help her.
"Well well, it's just you and me huh?" Hikar

Today was a day dedicated to training, every recruit was to train in hand-to-hand combat by order of Commander Erwin. The training was to be conducted with partners. You dressed yourself in your uniform, harnesses and all and headed out of your room. On your walk to the training ground, a voice called your name and you spun around to meet the familiar voice.
"Hey, ______! Wait up!"
"Oh, good morning Armin!" you greeted the small blonde haired boy.
"Good morning! Are you heading off to the training grounds now?" You nodded. "May I walk with you? Eren's run off of me this morning and I don't know where Mikasa is either. Eren seemed very eager to start training today," he explained to you.
"Sure. I could use some company," you told him while donning your warmest smile.
The two of you walked, conversing the whole way to the grounds. He told you stories about his favourite books and auth

You traveled a bit ahead of the Lady Eowyn and the others. Running up a small hill you looked around at the landscape with wide eyes and a small smile. Aragorn smiled at your excitement.
“What is with the lad? Why is she so excited about this travel?” Theoden smiled.
“That’s because she rarely ever got to travel out of the gates of the village. She longed to travel and see the world.” Legolas watched you as you stood on a bolder, the wind blowing your long [h/c] hair.
“Gandalf told us that she has an interesting life story.” Theoden looked to Legolas. “Of how much do you know of it?” Theoden’s face soften.
“If afraid I don’t know that much. She was brought to us by Gandalf about when she was 8 years old. The only thing Gandalf told me of her was that her family was attacked by orcs. Her mother and younger siblings killed.”
“What of her father?” Aske

Weles sie weseliWładca bagna siedział na jednym ze swoich podwodnych tronów, spoglądając na unoszące się nad taflą morza chmury. Ze względu na wysokie zanieczyszczenie Bałtyku, widoki nad głową Welesa były ciemne i niewyraźne. Z ledwością odróżniał unoszące się na powierzchni opakowania po chipsach od kuprów mew i rybitw, którym nie przeszkadzała brzydka pogoda. Mimo że czuł każdą kością, iż w okolice Świnoujścia zbliża się jego znienawidzony brat Perun wraz z wichurą i błyskawicami, było mu wyjątkowo wesoło.

After the tension felt between you, Levi and Eren during training, it was becoming too much for you. You admitted to yourself that you had, unconditionally an irrevocably, fallen in love with the two men. Despite the original plan being to make Levi jealous had worked nonetheless, you felt as though you were making Eren jealous at the same time. His attitude towards you was too close for comfort sometimes, well maybe not that, more so realistic. Eren's actions towards you did not feel fake or forced. It was genuine and you were confused, lost and above all, you were frustrated.
"This is ridiculous. I can't love both of them. It's not right, is it?" You muttered to yourself.
Running your hands through you hair, you let your head fall into your hands, resting on your knees. You let a heavy si

You had been tossing and turning all night after what Levi and Eren had proclaimed to you earlier on that very same evening. Your lips stung with a feeling you had never felt before. Grazing slim fingers over your lips as you continued to make a run for it, you recalled the clear visions both Levi and Eren kissing you passionately and intimately. You had woken up with a start after struggling to fall asleep that night. This only caused you to oversleep and waking up close to midday. You had found a note slid under your door which read the following:
"Good morning, ______.
Meet me at the stables at 17:00 hours exactly.
Don't be late.

Your body became numb as you let your thoughts wander to better times, hoping that this was all a horrid dream.
You thought of the first time you met him. You had been ten years old when the twelve year old boy showed up on your family's doorstep, starving and in need of a job. His parents had been killed by pirates and he had been left by himself, a mere orphan, to carry on in this harsh time filled with starvation and diseas

Now, upon finding yourself in such an unorthodox situation you can react in one of three ways.
Blink, tell yourself that you are obviously dreaming, roll over and go back to sleep.
Freak out, scream and cry until you fall unconscious from the sheer overload of WTF-ness.
Or, you can do what I did.
I sat up and turned on my lamp to see if he was some sort of shadowy illusion that disappeared with the light.
And he hadn't moved.
We stared at each other for a few long moments.
At least, I assumed he stared back. It is difficult to tell in which direction an eyeless skull is looking.
Finally I opened my mouth with a view to saying something intelligent.
What came out however was rather less clever than I had hoped.
"Am I . . . tripping?"
NO. A voice as deep and as final as a crypt door closing.
