I was perched on a grimy wooden bench, gazing up at a small maple tree, from which a solitary leaf hung.
"Me?" the leaf asked, its tone polite but confused.
I nodded. "Of course."
The leaf fluttered slightly in the gentle breeze. "Well...I'm flattered, but I do think you're quite mistaken. Why do you suppose I'm determined?"
"All the other leaves have fallen off the branches, except for you," I pointed out. "See? There you are, bravely attached to your own branch, all by yourself yet bearing through the loneliness." Shrugging, I added, "Besides, you've survived two major storms. If that's not determined, I don't know what is."
"Then you probably don't," the leaf replied, as dryly as itself.
I frowned. "That's insulting. I know what determination is." I began flipping through a bound notebook in my lap. "I wrote an essay on it, once, for school. Let's see...ah! Here it is!"
The leaf chuckled. "Go ahead. Tell me what determination is."

I couldn't have felt more alone at that moment. More vulnerable. I knew there were at least a hundred corpses roaming about outside, but one couldn't exactly consider those company. The walls did little to ease my mind, and I couldn't bring myself to stand. My limbs were stiff and cramped, and there was little chance I'd survive if they were to somehow get inside the house.
Darkness surrounded me. After I'd covered all the windows, I simply let the light fade out. I should have lit a candle, a lantern, started a fire - something. What idiot would actually enjoy darkness after all that had happened?
'Damn them. Damn the corpses, damn the living, damn this world. Damn those people who caused this, who took her away.' More tears fell from my eyes. I felt like screaming. 'Damn them all.'
I tried to comfort myself with the hope that I would so

The Incredible Hulk Nightmare.
My name is Chris Harvey, I'm 13 years old. I live in Peterborough with my single father Christian, and I am diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome. As with many children like me, I had my dreams. Most of my dreams were good, but of course, there were the occasional bad ones too...particularly in the night. You know that feeling when your mortal body falls asleep, but your mind is still wide awake? Doesn't everybody sometimes wish that they could enter their own little dream world and never come back? I suppose though, it depends on what kind of world you are thinking of. In this case however, the dream world I was going to imagine, wasn't to be a good one.

Anyway. There I was, snuggled up under the covers one Saturday at midnight. The sky was pitch black, the moon was high, and there were no clouds. I was dressed in my night garments under the covers, which consisted of a cotton red long-s

Ma simt ca un strain in propria-mi imaginatie
Defecta, bolnava, morbida, saturata
De ganduri si imagini ce nu-mi apartin,
Ce-mi trec prin fata ochilor fara control
Fara sa le pot opri, fara sa mi le pot smugle din minte.
Ii chem pe cei ce le detin
Sa vina sa le ia, sa ma scuteasca de pacate
Ce nu-s ale mele, sa ma usureze de povara lor.
Sunt prea slaba si ranita ca sa pot merge inainte
Carand in suflet si problemele altora.
Se zice ca trebuie timp, dar n-am rabdare
Pana vine momentul in care eu sa redevin eu.
Unfolding the truth
I feel like a stranger in my own imagination
Damaged, diseased, morbid, saturated
By thoughts and images that do not belong to me,
Which go before my eyes without any control
Without being able to stop them, without being able to erase them from my mind.
I call on those who own them
Come to take them, spare me from these sins
Which are not mine, to ease me from their burden.
I'm too weak and injured so I can move forward

/No. I can't call the cops on Dark. I.../ I blushed, realizing what I was thinking.

The Return of Dark Link
Chapter One- Feelings (Intro)
From a distance it looked as though two teenaged boys were having a simple sword fight, but from a near you could tell the blond elfish boy was fighting himself in an epic battle inside a strange world of illusions. The boy was covered in blood as his own shadow continued to strike him.
All hope seemed lost for the poor boy until he took out a strange hammer and disarmed the shadow with a single strike. The next move was a fatal blow by the master sword, causing the shadow to fall and vanish…
The room returned to its former look and the fairy that had been accompanying the boy told him that the whole thing had just been an illusion. They boy shrugged and continued on his way to defeat the true enemy.
But the shadow was still there, still trapped in the nightmare world of his battle… he didn't die that easy, but he had only been there to kill Link, to stop th

His eyes were glowing red now, not a trace of him were in them. I watched helpless as he came closer to me in till his forehead rested against mine, his breath ghosting across my face.
"Link....I need...you. Your blood...Please..."
I looked at him in shock. I mean it was obvious what he wanted, but the idea of him... I just couldn't!
I placed my hands on his chest and pushed him off me. "G-get away from me! Dark! Please snap out of this!" I yelled. He stood up and the next thing I knew, he hand me pinned against the wall, my hands over my head and his chest pressed against mine.
I blushed and looked away. /Damn it! I'm not strong enough to fight him off!/
I heard him sigh, and felt his lips press against my neck again. "Link...you smell...so...good..."
I blushed and tried to get my hands out of his grip, but to no avail. "Dark, stop this! W-what about..." /Our date.../ I thought. He didn't answer.

The twilight that riddled the land glimmered brilliantly that night, vermilion hues twisting the sky. Link relaxed down his sword and peered up, wondering what lay beyond the darkness. He lowered his gaze to the magnificent stair steps ahead of him, the large and foreboding entrance, and hastily ran through it, giving no wind to second thoughts.
It was dark when he entered. Midna glanced around, her orange locks dancing nervously. Link's eyes widened in determination when he saw Zelda, hanging like a ragdoll, above the dark figure of a red-haired man.
"Welcome to my castle." His voice was low, silky, taunting. He chuckled as he rose, rearing to be well over 6 feet when he stood tall. His face was the image of hardship and ferocity, his slate-colored skin contrasting his red locks and powerful shoulders. Midna stiffened besides Link. "I've been waiting for your arrival." He murmured, with a malicious smile.

"Link! What the HELL are you doing? Get up and pay attention!" I opened my eyes and looked around to see I was in a class room. Wait...that means...!
I quickly put my head up and looked up to see Mr. Ganondorf, my teacher, glaring at me. I blushed and looked down. "Sorry, sir-" "I don't want your apologies, Link. Sit up straight and pay attention in my class or you will receive punishment!" I watched him walk back to the front of the class and continue the lesson.
I swear he hated me or something...
Finally, the bell rang and I quickly packed my bag up before sprinting out of the class. I usually tried to get out first, or He'd yell at me and tell me how I was his worst student.
I sighed and looked at my watch. Five twenty three. I had only two and a half hour to rest before work.
Taking a deep breath, I adjusted my bad and began to sprint down the street.

Dark sighed and began to walk towards me. Something in the way he was walking scarred me, and so with every step he took I took a step back.
Finally, my back hit the wall. No where to go, I stood stiffly as Dark's crimson eye's peered at me, a snarl on his lips.

Ganon fell a good ten feet to the floor, tumbling out of the Twili portal. He twisted mid-air, landing gracefully on the ground, used to this practice. Link landed with a light thud besides him. Ganon snarled in anger and cursed the imp, biting his lower lip. His eyes wandered to the still figure of the Hylian beside him.
Link was unconscious, breathing quietly on the black grass. Ganon smiled grimly, realizing this was his opportunity. This was his opportunity to destroy his longest foe- to finally win the visceral war. But, staring down at the figure of the hylian, whose long lashes rested gently on his smooth cheeks, his rosy lips and silky hair, he felt a different emotion
Ganon slackened his jaw, staring up at the black-clouded sky. He closed his eyes, not completely sure what he was about to do, and let his emotions dominate his actions. He used the power he'd gotten from Zant, and sealed the Twili portal; it would keep off the bothersome imp, a
