I looked and saw you instead.
I covered my mouth as I choked unexpectedly on your raw emotions and gagged on the aromas you drew.
I didn't realize the truth of the affect until I wiped away tears and found blood on my hand.
I'd look away but the images you wrote are etched on my brain.

Vampire's KissI see him standing; he's so very far away. But his beauty still reaches out to me, caressing the very skin of my cheek. My breath left me at the sight of him and such fair, pale skin. His hair is unique, a wonderful mess of deep chocolate tresses with two long strands that frame his too perfect face. His bangs obscure his eyes from me at first, casting a soft shadow over them in the way the dim light of the moon hit him. His lips were twisted into a charming smirk...

My heart fluttered. I watched him from afar, frozen on the spot. He was looking toward me. An angel of darkness, staring toward me, smirking at me... silently beckoning me to approach him. My feet obeyed the order though something else within me told me to turn and run. I couldn't listen to that small plea in my mind. It was pushed aside, tossed to the curb like a piece of garbage. I was in a spell now.. under his spell.

I was only in second grade when this happened. I was 7 years old, small and still very young and was really naive. I didn't know what was going on at the time and I didn't know why those buildings came down like they did.
I was in the classroom and the teachers were pulled out of each classroom one by one and they were told about what had happened on that day. They were shocked and devestated and they didn't tell us. The school let us out on that day, a bit earlier than expected. We second graders didn't know why but we went ahead and went home to our families. That's when I went home to my mother and found her crying and in shock. I wondered what had happened to her. I thought something was wrong with her individually but it turned out that she was crying for the thousands of people who had died on that day.. I didn't know how

"I don't wanna sleep " Taro said glancing at his mother's swollen belly. Eri sighed softly.
"Alright, is your brother sleeping at least?"
"Uh huh," Taro nodded.
Eri put a hand over her belly as she sat up on the couch. Taro took the opportunity to sit next to her. Eri noticed Taro's gaze hadn't moved from her eight month pregnant belly. "Is something wrong sweetie?" she asked gently.
"Why are you and Daddy having another baby ? Are you bored with me and brother ?" he asked.
Eri blinked. "Oh Taro no, we've gone over this. Just because me and Daddy are having another baby doesn't mean we don't love you. It just means you're going to have a little brother or sister."
"But I already have a brother," Taro pouted.

Even from the other side of the room I can see the passion burning in your soul as your fight for control of your body. I ponder briefly if anyone else sees the wild battle behind your alluring eyes but I dismiss it.
It matters not what they think.
Honestly, I could care less.
I cross the floor; purposeful long steps taken as I make a straight line for you.
The people, moving in undulating rhythm to the loud music, part without consideration of their actions.
Parting for the hunter.
I can see both the fear and the longing struggle on your face as you note the predator like grin taking shape on mine.
That is what you are.

cannot describe how I feel inside;
cannot describe my fears, my anxiety,
the threats that are opposed to everything
that I hold dear.
One thousand tears
cannot tell you how serious this is;
cannot reveal my thoughts of this
or make you realize
that we are losing.
One thousand minutes
cannot save this thing that we have;
cannot fight away the despair
or give us back the time we lost,
but you can.
Only our love
is strong enough to save us;
only hard work and time spent between us
can straighten our path that time and misunderstandings have bent.
Only our love.

Trinity Blood Anime ReviewTrinity Blood Anime Review3 years ago in Reviews & Guides More Like This
Taking place in the far future, the Catholic church has become a supreme power and is locked in a cold war-like battle with Vampires (AKA Methuselah), who have set up their own nation. Peaceful coexistence seems like a far away dream, and with the plans of the evil Rosenkreuz Orden coming into fruition, destruction between both nations feels inevitable.
In comes Abel Nightroad, the kind, clumsy preist who works for the secret Vatican organisation AX. Abel is much more than he seems, being in fact a Crusnik-a vampire that feeds off other vampires-who works with fellow AX agents to put a stop to Rosenkreuz Ordens plans and create peace between both races once and for all.
This is Trinity Blood, by Studio GONZO.
When the anime Trinity Blood is brought up, many people are quick to call it a combination between Hellsing and Trigun which sounds incredibly awesome. I can certainly see where people are coming from here. On the one hand, you have Abel Nightroad, who could easily be to Vash

Expect the first few chapters to be rather fast paced, but not too terribly fast, since this story will take off into the plans I have for it. At least I hope.

Death of a VampireIt was almost time.Death of a Vampire2 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
He had lived for countless centuries - almost a millennia, though it seemed much longer. He was over eight hundred years old and the weight of the modern world had finally caught up to him. Some of the ancient vampires could change, adapt to the strange new cultures, but not him.
He had seen war, poverty, plague, and death long before he became an undead nightmare. And even though he only killed when it was absolutely necessary - when his victim had committed a heinous crime - the murders weighed down his soul. It seemed mythology was wrong about his kind being soulless. How could one retain a conscious but lack a soul?
He had made peace with himself, that was all that mattered. His own Sire was long dead and he had no fledglings to leave wisdom to. Maybe that was why he was alright with ending his unnatural life - he had no ties. No one would mourn him and no one would try to steer him from this path. Maybe it was the centuries of loneliness finally encapsulating h
Young SosekiYoung Soseki stood in the quiet courtyard, perched atop a short pole. His bare feet made subtle shifts against the wood as he maintained his balance. With only a plain-looking jinbei on and his arms slightly outstretched for balance, he looked like a scarecrow that had lost its field. The setting sun's last rays were beginning to evaporate, and the sweeping calm of dusk was all around. The sound of slow, trickling water was interrupted by a sudden tonk as the shishi odoshi pivoted and spilled its collected water, but Soseki was unaware. Despite outward appearances, the boy was actually meditating.Young Soseki7 years ago in Philosophy & Perspectives More Like This
For most, meditation was something done while seated, perhaps in front of a shrine to a god, prophet, or ancestor. It was a gradual process, beginning with controlled breathing and culminating in a sort of empty-mindedness. This state of mind allowed for significant revelations that seemed unobtainable otherwise, and many sought that enlightenment.

The strands mixed in with her tears causing it to stick to her skin. She brushed it off her body but it stuck to her hands, she shakily stood up. It was time for her to leave, to leave this hell-hole and go back where she belonged. The run for her life was over as far as she knew and she desperately needed to return. She shakily slipped on the charcoal long sleeved shirt and the matching ankle length skirt.

Now, for starters REAL VAMPIRES DONT SPARKLE! I know this gets stated a lot nowadays, but it needs to be said as much as possible.
Do not take everything I say as being the unquestionable Truth. Instead, take this as a the appetizer to your full course of vampire research. I specifically encourage anyone that is interested in writing a vampire story to go to their local library or book store and pick up some of the many books on vampire legend. Throughout history there have been accounts of vampiric entities, creatures that attack humans and drain them of blood. The exact characteristics of these beings are as varied as the cultures they come from. There are three basic types that I would like to cover in this essay and are as follows: risen corpses, solid spirits, and psychic vampires.
The most commonly talked about (and written about) vampire is the risen corpse vampire. This is a vampire that is actually a dead body that rises from its grave and att
