Ever had that feeling, you know, that tension, that bone crushing tension that just sits on your shoulders makes you think, “Oh, my god, how the hell am I ever going to get anything done?!” You can’t stop thinking about it, and you say, “Oh, I’ll do it,”, but then you never do? Because you had so much other stuff to do, that you didn’t have time for that one thing? That one thing constantly gets pushed to the side, to the bottom of the list, while everything else gets stacked on top of it. Then, the list gets way too long and you don’t know what to do. At this point, you’re so frustrated you could pull your hair out or something, all because of one little six letter word…
Yeah, stress. You know, you’ve got so much on your plate and you just don’t know how to handle it? It’s probably one of the hardest things to deal with, next to guilt. Nobody likes stress. Nobody likes hav

Not many people knew this, but your gorgeous best friend, Mr. (America) Alfred F. Jones, used to be a fat little thing when he was younger. Not quite obese, but enough that he seemed to jiggle everywhere he went - so perhaps, rotund was a better word to describe him. One would not know that now though, although he still had that small amount of pudge around his stomach that years of exercise hadn't quite rid, and that you just couldn't help but tease him over. You had always loved Alfred, even when he was that fat little kid who used always walk home from school with chocolate smears around his mouth, but ever since his change in physical appearance, you must say (much to your dismay, since you liked to think that your love wasn't so shallow), you'd actually become quite attracted to him.

"Someone! Help! Please!" Tears rushed into your sockets.
You heard a loud cracking noise, followed by a bang, and the house before you collapsed into nothingness in the flames.
"No!" the six year old you screamed, "Mommy and Daddy are still in there!"
You fell to your knees, held onto your teddy for dear life, and screamed your cries for your parents.

I saw you before you saw me. You were wearing your favorite black hoodie, and your eyes were darting back and forth vigorously as you read your book. Even from far away, I could tell that your eyes were blue. A loud, electric blue that would put a sapphire to shame.
I had been arguing with my parents; that's why I was in the cafe that day. I had to get away. I used to always go there all the time when I had a fight with them. But now, I just don't see the point. I guess you changed that.
I ordered coffee like I always did, low fat with extra sugar. I was in a hurry to get out of the house that day, so I guess I had forgotten my wallet. I didn't realize until it was time to pay.
“That will be $1.50,” the cashier behind the counter had said. Jamie, his name tag read; strange how I can remember that.

It was who she was- she was loyal, told the honest truth no matter how hard it was, and would never leave a friend behind. She often told her friends during their serious conversations, "You know I'd never tell you something to get yourself hurt.

Though she had these redeeming qualities she also had a sarcastic streak and could come off slightly rude though she meant no harm.
