"I think I'm going to claw my own eyes out, I'm so bored," Alari complained.
Midnight looked over from where she was leaping up at the ceiling of the den, snapping at roots and trying to pull them down.
"You should try this, Alari. It's kind of fun," she invited her friend.
Alari padded over and watched Midnight leap for the root again, her jaws snapping shut on air, her body falling back to the ground. Alari was highly unimpressed with this game, but gave it a try anyway.
Leaning low to the ground and bunching her muscles, then rocketing up at the root. When her face reached the ceiling she quickly snapped at the root, her teeth closing over it easily. Midnight laughed as she hung there by her teeth for a moment and then flopped to the ground when the root broke. The ceiling showered them all with a layer of light red dust. Midnight and Alari both doubled over in laughter while Bone paced nervously.

The sun was setting over the hills and the sky glowed pink. The last golden lights of the evening spilled over the forest floor, dappling the low growing foliage and bed of pine needles beneath. The honey light squeezed through a narrow crevice and into a small loamy wolf den.
There were three of the animals within two adults and a small pup. The adults lay still, sleeping soundly, their bodies pressed together tightly. One of them was a large grey male with a thick reddish stripe down his back, and sleeping beside him was his mate. She was a petite wolf with a pale silvery pelt and a white underbelly. Behind them, the dark reddish ball of fur that was their pup spun in circles, snapping at her tail. After several failed attempts to catch it, she fell back on her haunches, and eyed her parents mischievously.
"Dad?" she called quietly.
The big male didn't move.
*Froststar's Mistake*Froststar breathed heavily as she faced and battled a sunclan warrior. She strikes an attack and took a glimpse at the other warriors. They were tried but kept fighting for their clan just because Froststar told them too. She watches the Sunclan warriors weaken but still undefeated while the Frostclan warriors strikes hard but weakly. As Froststar finished the blow she ran so she can have time to think. She settled near Sunclan border making sure no one was there. She tried to calm down to capture what just happened. An image of cats dead or injured harshly from the battle came to mind. Froststar stared blankly and thought "All my fault.. just for prey" Froststar felt weak and tried and stared back at the battlefield.

To shield you with warmth
To protect you against the harsh cold of the night
Love is shelter
To hide you from your fears and frights
Love is your very essence
Your being that makes you, you
Love is having someone you care for
By your side
Through thick and thin
Through the good and the bad
Having a person to turn to
When you need help most
Someone who will listen
Someone who will hold you close
And tell you everything is going to be alright
Everything you need
To get through your life
Having that special someone
To sleep with under the stars
Love is you and I
Never being separated
Regardless of what happens...
I love you
And that will never change...

"She can no longer stay here.". The words rang in my ears. They were once again, talking about me. I backed away suddenly only to hear another voice. "She's just a kitten! You can't make her leave." That time it was my mother, Fawn. Protective, loving. Then the other voice spoke again, it was Shredder. "Kitten or not she must go. She's causing trouble and conflict and until she is gone it will only get worse". Why would he want me gone?
I shook my head. I didn't know this was my fault. Every day cats disappeared from our territory on the island leaving only a small amount left. My dad was one of the cats that no longer lingered here. How could this possibly be my fault? Before either Shredder or Fawn could speak again I shot forward, withdrawing from the undergrowth. My mother greeted me with a nervous nod, her body rattling. Shredder just stood tall, a look of weakened strength flashing in his eyes.
"I suppose you heard all that." Shredder growled, his eyes narrow

What does it matter to you if I fall?
If my heart lies in the sky, forget me.
For then I wont remember you at all.
Your love is today, but what for morrow
Your promise is now, but what for tonight?
These lies you speak do fill me with sorrow
But up in the stars, my hopes lie so bright.
In sleeping away the cold December
My slumber lies all my worries to rest.
Inside of me, my heart cant remember
The last time the sun came up from the west
If I believe I can be what Im not
Forget me for life, and the love I sought.

I rushed past the house as Dustin chased me. “Kira! Dustin! Come back inside!” My mother called to us. Dustin stopped chasing me and we headed back inside. My mother and I had been packing up to move for a couple of weeks and we were finally moving today.
“We’re leaving in about an hour. Say your goodbyes to Dustin while I pack up the remaining things.” Mother told us. I turned to Dustin. “Well Dustin. This is it.” I said sadly. I wanted to stay, of course, but I couldn’t. My mother had gotten a new job in another part of the state. I would be living in a new city, go to a new school, and have to get all new friends. That’s not very fun in my point of view.
“Yeah. Well, at least we’ve got each others phone number.” He said, trying to cheer me up. I shrugged and gave him a quick hug. “I’ll call you when I get to the house.” I told him. He nodded. “Goodbye old friend.” D
Sick Day A loud squealing pierced through the ears of the young teen. Though he enjoys going to school, today felt different. A loud, powerful thudding was violently rattling his head. Groaning, Yugi weakly reached a hand up to slam the alarm clock on its head to stop it's powerful noise. He could've sworn he heard a voice after he'd hit the alarm, but felt peaceful as the ringing in his ears had stopped for the time being. Absentmindedly, he began falling back into the depths of sleep, completely forgetting he had to get up for school. All he wanted to do at the moment was sleep.Sick Day7 months ago in Profiles More Like This
Atem could hear Yugi's alarm clock annoyingly buzzing all the way in Solomon's room, which he proudly took over as soon as the old man left on his trip. The former Pharaoh groaned and stood from the bed still foggy from his peaceful sleep. He made no motion to be quiet as he's feet stormed their way to Yugi's room. Opening the door slightly, Atem spotted Yugi still sleeping and the alarm clock sti

At first it's just a small tug on your heart. Unnoticeable. Easy to ingore.
It will begin to aggitate you, build up. Like pent up emotions crammed into a tiny jar.
You will ache. You begin to feel tired. Unhappy. Stressed.
Everyone is in the way.
You snap at thoose around you. Pushing them away, not letting them help.
You heart begins to feel colder and colder as the days go by.
Family and friends are unneeded and unwanted in your eyes. For at least that's what you think.
People begin to ignore you. Like your just part of the background. Blending in.
You are alone.
The pent up emotions seem to dissapear. Like they were never there in the first place.
Your eyes are dull. Lifeless. Cold.
If Ashfur had lived... Ashfur walked alongside the river. He was ready. It was almost time for the gathering. His lips spread in a smile. Yes, he was ready. He would tell Firestar and everyone else what that backstabbing traitor had been hiding from them for so long. And then, Squirrelflight would feel the pain. Oh yes. The pain would hit her in the chest, as if she had run into a brick wall. Then she would know. She would know the pain he had felt each and every day. Brambleclaw would hate her. Firestar would want nothing to do with her. Leafpool would be so disapointed. And then Firestar would kick her out of the clan. Ah yes, Ashfur would savour that moment.If Ashfur had lived...5 years ago in Children and Teen More Like This

I’ve never been very good with words.
I spend so much time searching for the right ones,
For that one perfect phrase to describe a feeling.
Slippery as a sunfish it incessantly escapes me,
Or gets hooked upon my lip.
It’s difficult to say what I mean,
Let alone mean what I say.
And words make it so much harder;
Ineffectual, impersonal and imprecise as they are.
I might say I love a steaming pot of tea in the morning,
Or a big cozy sweater on a winter’s day.
But sweaters and tea don’t quite add up to how I feel about you.
You might say a rose is pretty,
Or a sunset.
But I am hardly a flower or a sinking star.
I wish there were a way to pinpoint these feelings,
To let you know exactly what they are.
Instead I tread water futilely,
Drowning in the vagueness of language;
I simply choose silence.
Perhaps worst of all about words,
Is that they can lose their luster so devastatingly quickly.
I want meaning to permeate time; to last forever

Scared, tired, cold, wet, and alone. I shiver in the dark, after looking for my lost mother I found a nearby cave and ran inside to get out of the wet rain, it started up out of nowhere too.
I shiver as I try to warm up my hands by slowly breathing into them and rubbing them against each other. I am only a 8 year old girl, I don't know much about the world, I don't know much about anything. I was scared and alone, in this unknown cave far out into the region in the middle of the night surrounded by strange noises and dangerous pokemon.
After listening for over an hour now the fear started to take over me and I started to cry and panic, I try to crawl further into the cave but to no avail, I hid my eyes into my scabbed knees from falling over earlier and cried for a long while. Thats until I heard a small noise, I can't explain the noise I heard, it sounded disorented and yet...playful? Curious? Sad...maybe?
I swallowed down my fear and slowly looked up, at first
