The gulls were cawing and flying lazy circles overhead. Unfortunately, the poor excuse for a sail was too small to provide any shelter against any droppings that might have fallen onto your head. The lack of shade wasn’t an improvement, either.
“Blasted birds,” you angrily grumbled and craned your head past the small mast to see how your sailing companion was doing.
As I thought, you frowned and threw him a disapproving look. He was suffering from apparent heat stroke, and that nasty gash he got earlier wasn’t making the situation any better. No matter how long you stood there and ran your mouth, nothing would get done. The task would have to fall on you to get the two of your where you were going.
“Fancy meeting a pirate who doesn’t know anything about self-preservation,” you snorted and began to tear a piece of cloth off of your skirt. You then leaned over the sides of the tiny boat and dipped the cloth into the oc

His elbow propped up against the edge of the large instrument, he was cradling his chin in leather-clad hand. Sweeping a few rebel strands of [h/c] hair behind her ear, [Name]'s slender fingers pressed the keys in a sweet tune. Her tempo was lethargic, sleepy, and in no hurry at all to finish the piece.

What did he see through those eyes of his? How did he see the world? Perceive other people? Did he think all of them as relevant, or a mere mathematical ratio? Unfathomably deep, jade green eyes would stare at anything for only the slightest of minutes before he was able to detect anything of importance about that thing; date of origin, the creator of the object or what a person's parents were like, or maybe even how they go about their daily lives. [Name], his flat-mate, often wondered how his mind processed all this information, too.
Laying on his sofa, Arthur Kirkland – a very well-know detective – clasped together his palms and pressed them to his thin lips, thick brows drawn together as he mulled over several things; what they were, [Name] wasn't sure. But, obviously it was so important as to miss breakfast and lunch. He barely even moved for the past few days ever since he wrapped up the last case Scotland Yard had him advise.

She would only find words of astonishment when his mouth touched her, soaking in moment with wide eyes and sliding her chilled fingers into his hair; she brushed the silver piercings in his ear and shutter.

Arthur's stare found hers when she froze, jade eyes burning her just as well as his fingers did. He did so wordlessly, breathing through his nose and his lips shut, silent. It was difficult to predict what he was thinking, he kept himself guarded so well. She wanted to say something, anything, but she found no words again.
As if knowingly, Arthur leaned over her and kissed her forehead, brushing her [h/c] bangs away. The gesture was tender, warm, and gentle; it was something that surprised her, she would never imagine someone like Arthur to have that in him. But, he did.

You had heard the desperation in his voice when he was calling for you after you had left, but your brain hadn’t registered the words as a sign that he didn’t want you to leave, and so you just continued running until you got to the bus stop, constantly looking back over your shoulder to make sure he wasn't following you.

It was a rather nice sampling set of loose tealeaves; every type of course came in their own neatly labeled little tin. The tins were packages nicely together in a little wooden chest for both decoration and convenience. It just so happened that Arthur, one of your closest and dearest friends had a birthday coming up in a little over a week’s time.
Certainly, the British gentleman would have loved such a nice present. He was often obsessed with tea, constantly drinking the stuff. However, despite the fact, you picked out the tea’s selection yourself and even though there were over 30 different types of tea stored in the assorted set, the present somehow felt wrong. Maybe it was because the present didn’t take much thought before hand. Then again, this off putting feeling could have easily been caused by the fact you had fallen for your lifelong pal.
