Minna-san!! Konnichiwa!! How are you to day? I hope your fine!!
You remember what we have learnt last time? The "Janai" thing I told you that the negative form of "desu" is "janai" & both of them have a past form "Datta" & "janakatta" .
I told you also that the next lesson (This lesson) will be about the interrogative form but I changed my mind because it's too easy All what you have to do is to add the particle "ka" at the end of the sentence Like this:
"Anata wa Hiroto desu" . "You're Hiroto"
"Anata wa Hiroto desu ka?" .. "Are you Hiroto?"
So I decided to teach you something more useful & I guess you will like it!! How to say "I like something" & "I don't like something"!!

Life had been cruel towards her.
"If only I could see for a moment, to see the colors of this world, to see my family's faces, to see the mountains, the sea, the birds... Whatever I have only heard about until now, I wish I could see it too.... "
People say that sight is the faith. But for her this was not entirely true. She had lost her eyesight at the age of 5 years old. The memories of those that she had seen had faded so much, that she would hardly recognize even herself any more.
She could currently see using her other senses. Walking in the streets of her city was a piece of cake. She could smell the rain before it dropped, but she could not watch it fall. She could feel the sun on her face, but she could not see it rise or set.
She often hated herself, she hated what she was. People around her were saying that she was so beautiful and that all of her skills surpassed the skills of all normal people - she played the piano so nice and her voice was angelic. She was smart, f

Coffee and Turkish DelightsThe thought that you were out there somewhere made me restless. Instead of staying home, lazily sipping my coffee while enjoying the morning sun, I instantly woke myself up, grabbed an espresso and walked around the old part of the city.Coffee and Turkish Delights2 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
God, how beautiful that place was in the mornings. Even though it was kind of tiring to walk there, because of the slope, it definitely paid off. For an architect, these places are always interesting.
The narrow streets paved manually with stones could be quite slippery if you weren't careful. If you were new there, instructions could be very useful, because all the streets circle themselves and make endless whirling spirals.
But I did not care of any of that. In fact, the ottoman houses with the wooden buttresses were not the object of my attention, nor the reason I was there. It was not the fair weather an unusual phenomenon for my town- that made me wander around those streets, nor the lingering scent of freshly grounded coffee and

And I am regularly asking God, why he'd decide to be so cruel as to make me this way? It isn't any fair. In a world where everybody is homosexual. It is so hard for me. They point at me and whisper behind my back. Calling me nothing more than an animal. An animal! They say that if God intended us to be mindless animals that he wouldn't have given us the minds or the ability to create life without performing animalistic sex acts. They call me unnatural. What's wrong with me? Why am I this way? I sometimes wish I were a lesbian. Or at least bi-sexual. Although those poor souls are often being picked on for not "making up their minds". I cannot help how I feel. I cannot help who it is that I fall in love with, cannot control their gender any more than I can control my own.
Oh God. If I could be a homosexual, don't you think that I would?? To fit in, to be normal. I feel so conflicted. All my life I have been bought up to know that homosexuality was the norm

Prepares her for his bite
She tips her head back
Giving him access
To her pale neck
He can feel her blood
Daring him to take a bite
His lips cover her jugular
His mouth opens
His teeth scrape her skin
Finally, he bites.
The crimson liquid
Enters his mouth
He's filled with warm blood
Blood that will make
Him stronger than all the rest
His hand strokes her neck
Putting her into a trance
So she can't escape
Though, why would she want to?
He pushes her hair
Away from her face
Puls his teeth from her neck
Runs his tongue across
To close the pinpricks
He looks at her face, her
Eyes glazed over
He leans down and kisses
Her lips, a trace of blood
Staying, enticing him.
He couldn't take any more
He would kill her.
He licks the rest of the blood
Off her neck, leaving
Her standing in the street
Wondering when he would

silently, I drop dead.
Swiftly as I'm falling,
the skies above me,
full of plaster and white,
they don't seem as bright.
Words pour in,
they waver inside my skull.
Thus I start dripping.
Drop by drop,
I spill my red velvet;
What had been of plaster,
is up there no more..
Just a smudge.
Distilled, I finally cascade.
Surrounded by air so thick,
I can swim.
I dive in the sea of dream.
Only this time,
it's not all the same.
This time I'm drowning;
In my beloved sea of dream.

And I lost all control.
