You see that guy three seats down? Yeah, that guy. The one with the beanie. Never a good sign, beanies. Look at him, sitting there, head in his hands, cigarette wasting away unsmoked. Christ.
He's the sorta guy I don't like. It's -his- fault, indirectly, that people think of gloomy melancholy whenever they think of smoke-filled bars. They think of drinking away your sorrows and trying to forget the past. What the hell would even be the -point- of having bars if they were just full of gloomy introverts smoking and drinking? No, people like that guy who come here to drink, smoke and be introspective are the minority. Most of us are, you know, sensible people, here for sensible reasons.
I come here to people-watch.

"We don't want to play with a freak with no parents!"
One boy picked up a stone and hurled it at a boy with blonde, spiky hair. Fortunately for him, the missile just missed him by a few centimeters. One tall boy strode forward towards him and pushed him roughly into the snow.
"Weakling do not deserve to play with us!" the tall boy laughed as he and his friends walked away from the boy. Uzumaki Naruto, the name of the boy and nine year old slowly stood up, trying not to let any tears of humiliation flowing down from his cheeks. Snow began to descend when all this was going on.

Haruno Sakura was fifteen years old and, as much as she hated to admit it, quite the prude. Despite her build up of confidence over the years as the Hokage's apprentice and the ever growing emergence of her secret, inner personality there was one part of her that remained rather immature, much to her teenaged chagrin. And that was sex.
Not so much the act of sex itself as everything that went with it. Kissing, touching, fondling, caressing, holding...the works. Other than some light kissing with a couple of boys she was wholly and utterly virgin.
Of course, it was not entirely willful on her part. Sure, she was growing up to be a beautiful woman and she knew it. So did many of the male shinobi and civilians for that matter, and they made it well known. Rock Lee h

You paused to stare up at the bruised, purple-black clouds inching their way menacingly across the sky like a slow and thick molasses, engulfing the once peaceful blue that was present during the day.

Well, the hospital staff decided it would be a good idea to discharge the Pudding Lady today without letting me know.

But he was happy that you were responding to him. It was a sign that you weren't as angry as he feared. He had feared that you were still angry with him. He had blown you off to spend some time with Gilbert and Francis when they came into town. So to play along with your little game, he responded to you with the next line of the rhyme.

There is no place for justice or mercy.
There is no place for true love anymore,
It's a sad truth, it saddens me at the core.
There is no place for me in this world,
Where the cries of the needy must go unheard.
I'm cast out for my ideals, my gentleman's code,
Well, I was born like this, a man in hero mode.
There is no place for a hero in this world,
The knight in shining armour must go unheard.
There is no such thing as a Fairy Tale,
I am not Prince Charming, just another sail.
On a boat afloat on a sea of sadness,
The winds of mourning passing through me.
There is nowhere in this world for me...
There is nowhere in this world for gallantry.

There isn't much for me to write because I am no writer
No fancy words, just the straight out truth
You still surprise me, even if I don't show it

I can see it in your eyes, you haven't lost hope
As long I can still feel you are still holding on, I will keep trying
I know I am not perfect but I keep trying
That's what I said I will do from the start
One chance I have to make it right
If I miss it, it will be too late

You are beautiful; don't let others say you are not
I won't let you fall, even when I am wrong

The emotion is true in each word I write

Say I loved someone. Say that someone broke my heart. If I had a sane mind, I would grieve of course; I might be sick to my stomach; my head might throb with disbelief; I might cry; I might be angry; I might imagine shoving a pool stick up his ass and snapping it off against his tailbone, letting the splinters scrape against the delicate area.
And if I were insane, I would actually do it. That's the crucial difference; insane people just can't distinguish between what's acceptable and what's not. They have an impulse to fuck, or kill, or lie, or steal and they are just unable to control themselves.
So if I fantasized about killing someone, but never actually did it, if I controlled myself, I would be sane, right?
