Jason sighed to himself and placed his forehead against the desk that he was sitting at. Why did he have to take this stupid English class anyway? His major was in chemistry, he studied the sciences. Why did he have to learn about all the advanced bits of language? It wasn't like he was really going to use them that much.
"Oh don't whine about it."
He looked up to see Sarah staring down at him. Her blond hair and blue eyes made her look every bit the part of the stereotypical dumb blond. However, she had a wit and mind that were quite a bit sharper than appearances would lead someone to believe. He'd known that ever since he'd met her back in the sophomore year of high school. She was scratching away at a blank sheet of paper, her hand rapidly tracing out lines and angles, though he couldn't quite see what she was drawing.

Her Very Own BlueberryWinston Thackerly was never gunning for a win. Be it how fast he could do something, how much taller he could make things and how well he could do anything, if he could "win" it, then more than likely you'd never see him trying. Not that he was lazy, he just knew his limits. So it came as a bit of a surprise when he won something without even trying. The young teenager was greeted with a golden laced letter saying how he had won entry to a factory tour. In style which was for unfitting Winston, he took the word "win" and thought of nothing else. He hadn't entered anything or exerted any effort, but why was he going to complain?Her Very Own Blueberry3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

After a week of captivity, Raven was beginning to chafe severely. Slade allowed her such little time out of the little room she was allotted; for most of the days she was locked up with nothing to do. Frustration mounted; she wished that she could use all this spare time to meditate, but that of course was impossible. The food he brought her was hardly satisfying either.
Almost as if called, the key suddenly scraped in the lock, making Raven jump. It swung open and Slade entered, balancing her breakfast of runny eggs, dry toast and watery coffee in his hands. He made to shove the door closed with his wide shoulder, but Raven, struck with a desperate impulse, darted forward slipped out the door, slamming it behind her.

Midnight ComfortThe moon was still high in the dark starry sky, and most of the creatures were fast asleep, safe within their homes. The nocturnal ones were out and about, searching for their unfortunate victims to become a midnight snack. One creature in particular, Axel, who was perhaps the most feared creature in the area, was crepuscular, meaning he was most active during dawn and dusk. This also meant that normally he would be asleep at this time.Midnight Comfort2 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

She had changed her hair again; she had cut it much shorter and lightened it a little bit rather than it being dark purple it was quite light with some purple contact lenses. After we had packed I heard Julie begging Chloe to lend her the bangle so she could be an adult for the weekend, but to no luck Chloe had really grown attached to it and said she will never let it go of it. Julie left the room with a strop and unpacked her 2 piece swimsuit and replaced it with the grade school swimming uniform, the swimsuit uniform wasn't a pretty thing it's a very dark blue baggy looking uniform that is hard to flirt in, make's a change from the normal school uniform and the tiny skirt's they're a horny teenage boys dream.

Things were working out so well for him, it was almost untrue...

Surprisingly, however, he wasn't really bullied at school. The only thing he ever faced were his classmates as they barked at him for knowing everything.
School had ended and Alan had finished everything that he owed to his teachers, so, he was free to do what he wanted. But what was there to do? His walk home was a long one; thinking of what he could do when he got home. His hard thinking and looking at the ground made his attention shoot towards a creamy yellow and orange object laying in the grass. At first, he thought of it as a rotting fruit of some kind, but upon passing by it, he could see that it was a sea shell.

As Tiffany sat down to breakfast, it occurred to her just how famished she was. Typically the formerly miniscule girl would only eat a small amount, if anything at all, in the morning. Today however, the sight of food filled her with a burning desire to consume. After both cooking and chowing down a large meal eggs, bacon, sausages and plenty of milk, she found herself desiring even more.
"I hope I don't get fat..." she said quietly to herself as she began preparing another round of eggs and bacon. "Then again, my new body probably needs more energy. I thought I added in a reaction to give myself free energy, but I guess it wasn't enough." she reasoned. "Not to mention, I'd much rather get a little chubbier than go back to being so small again."
After consuming would could have easily been a full breakfast for two or three fully grown men, Tiffany was finally satiated.

It had been a year since I had seen her, and there was nothing I could do to stop myself from closing the distance at a run and embracing her. My sister, Kirsten, tried to do the same; except that she was wearing the most absurd costume I had ever seen and probably would have fallen on her face if she had tried. I didn’t care that there were other people watching, I didn’t care about how stupid we would look.
Like a fluffy little ferret or a little dog, Kirsten was mostly fluff and little else, and I scooped her up without difficulty. She wrapped her arms around my neck and cried into my shirt, sniveling. “I’ve missed you so much, big brother!” My sister was eleven, a full seven years younger than I was, and our close friendship would probably have seemed improbable or even bizarre to anyone who didn’t know what had created it.

But then she closed her factory off to the world, all except for the army of trucks that went in and out in the morning.

Another voice, which she'd also never heard before, answered, "Like they'll do anything to him. Big jock like that."

Carefully, Sadie set the phone down. She didn't need to hear anymore. She understood where she needed to go and what she needed to do. Getting up from her couch, she walked over to her bathroom and washed her face gently.

But on the other hand, she didn't even realize who I was...and I wasn't even a boy. Was it wrong that I was still crushing on her? Personally, I was emotionally confused and conflicted.
