It says so in my heart,
I really cannot help it,
Though I didn't feel so at the start.
But now we're closer and I realize,
I'm lucky to have you,
All the things you say to me,
The sweetest things you do.
You cheer me up,
When I am down,
You make me smile,
When I frown.
You may not ever realize,
My feelings deep and true,
You may not ever notice,
I can't help loving you.
I'll never stop loving you, there's no way I could.

Mark left the bar he was at. He had come to this bar to have a little bit to drink before he faced Beatrice but he didn’t feel like drinking at all and hardly touched what he had bought. Mark told himself that he would go and apologize like a man and set off towards her house.
Mark reached out his fist and knocked on the door loudly. He waited. No one answered. He pressed the doorbell several times, and could hear it ring through the house. Still no one answered. Getting worried, he knocked on the door and shouted her name, still no one answered. He tried the door knob, and it opened. That was odd; she usually kept the door locked.
The first thing he noticed when he entered was the open window, the wood bordering the sides of it seemed to have a lot of claw marks on it, like a cat had been there. He walked into the dining room, calling out her name. He paused when he saw the bottle of champagne on the table. It was

The sun peeked out over the dark horizon and rose into the sky, bathing the town in the light of dawn. It flooded in through a window of the bedroom of a humanoid creature. This creature’s skin seemed to be made, or covered by, a black, leather like material; the ‘skin’ had silver zippers all over its surface, making lines all over the creature’s body; it was Zippers.
Zippers yawned and looked out the window at the slowly brightening light and got up from his bed. He picked up his belt with the pouches for supplies attached to it and put it on. Walking out of his bedroom, Zippers wondered what he would do today.
He opened the front door of his small home and looked outside at the street. Zippers didn’t have anything in particular planned today, so he hoped that maybe he could find a friend or two to hang out with. Looking up and down the road, there didn’t seem to be anyone out.

Nintendo seems to be on a revival kick lately, haven't they? What with sequels to old cult favorites (Luigi's Mansion 2), a few new takes on their most popular franchises (Super Mario 3D Land and Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword), and revived new life for some of their old franchises (Punch Out, Kirby's Epic Yarn/Return to Dream Land and Donkey Kong Country Returns).

A red casket lay open and empty upon a black table. Burned rose petals lay scattered on the floor beneath it. A long, deep red carpet made a bee-line from the casket to a metal black throne.The back of the royal chair reached for the top of the Chapel. Sculpted gargoyles rested on the top, scouring the kings audience. Metal vines were carved along the sides of the throne, curling and grasping at the gargoyles feet. Red velvet rested on the back, making it a little more comfortable its occupier. The arms curled into hands with claws reaching out. The feet balanced the whole sculptured were sharpened lion paws, talons pointed and digging into the stone floor. Three steps led up to the chair, letting anyone who sits there have full view of audiences and the casket. Four other smaller versions of the throne sat on either side of the master chair, still letting off an aura of power.
On either side of the aisle the pews were packed with people, usually aging from 10-20 years ol

what happened to the happy girl i used to know?
she disappeared one day and left behind this depressed girl
a girl lost in the strange thing called life
her life started to fall apart in front of her eyes
she couldn't handle it and lost her way
now everyday she thinks about how her life was
and how it could have been if things were different
she knows that the happy girl won't be back anytime soon
she misses her alot but can do nothing to bring her back
she prays that one day she will find a special person
a person who will help her find the happy girl
and change things back to how they were

"Hello, sirs, and welcome to Desi and Desta's House of Heals!" Desi gave her best smile to the pair that was walking through the door. She was proud of that name. She had spent three days coming up with that name. Desta, her partner in the business, was less fond of it; he had insisted on a more dignified name. Much like every argument they had, though, Desi won it out; in the past, this had led to their business being located near the beach, rather than in town, as well as the building being painted a shade of blue that immediately distinguished it from every other building in the vicinity.
The two men entering didn't seem to take any notice of that. Well, to put it more accurately, one of the men was entering; the second man was just being carried.

It has been said that, in the world of Ennen, angels will very rarely show themselves to common mortals.
There's a lot of confusion surrounding this. As Ennen is polytheistic, and some of the gods and goddesses don't seem to understand themselves what their purpose is - Krytikas, the goddess of secrets, once lamented that her very nature meant that she couldn't even reveal herself to the mortals that suspected she existed - the purpose of angels can be hard to divine.
Some suspect that angels act as messengers to the gods and goddesses. This couldn't be further from the truth. For one, when divine beings find themselves in a position where they need to contact the mortal world, they can just as easily act through a prophet or a disciple. Some gods and goddesses will even take a body of their own and enter the mortal realm themselves - Tzarth, the goddess of death, did this once and reportedly has yet to return to the divine realm.
So if angels are not messengers, what are they? In orde

"Mountains. It had to be mountains." Marlis Winter was not in what one would call a good mood as she started her hike up through the mountains of Becdeni. It had been not three days ago - a letter had arrived at the front door of her house in the Becdeni city of Rennardt.
"I wish to request a challenge," it had read, "so that we may finally see who comes out on top. I'll be waiting at the summit of Mount Carver. I'll be seeing you there." The letter had dissolved in her hands; then, to her consternation, it turned into several small ladybugs and flew away. It wasn't until after Marlis had found her thick boots, her heavy coat, and her favorite boxing gloves (hey, they were requesting a match, after all), and made her way out to the foothills that she realized which mountain was Mount Carver.
Becdeni was, by and large, a mountainous region. In fact, leading cartographers had taken to labeling Becdeni's maps with two sections: "mountains" and "everything else." The mountains provided the

Blue sat down on a log near the crackling campfire. Following his lead, two other people joined him - Celeste took a seat on a boulder nearby and Azure contented himself by sitting cross-legged in the dirt. The flickering light cast his iron mask in a sinister light - completely unintentional, he would assure you, though how much stock you could put in that was up for debate - as he looked his two colleagues over.
The three of them had snuck away from their homes in Eldarin and crept into the surrounding forest with nothing but the clothes on their back. Blue, for one, was eager to show off all of his new knowledge of foraging and surviving in the wild; Celeste and Azure had shortly thereafter found out that that meant "start a campfire and the rest will sort itself out one way or another."
It took only a few moments of silence for Blue to get restless. This was not without reason. Blue had a defect of sorts in his mind, though if he ever heard anyone call it that, he would likely punc

"The hell you find these places, Talent? It'll take me years to scrub the dried puke off my shoes." As he says this, his beard is glistening from his last pull of his eighteenth tankard of Garish Black. Tell you the truth, Buzzard's butt was wearing a trench in that chair long before my great-grandfather was kicking the inside of my great-great-grandmother's belly. My theory is that Buzz passed out drunk about four hundred years ago, and they just built the city around him.

Dawn had risen in the Sandstone desert, red and misty with the sun painting milky clouds across the skyline. As was expected in such an unforgiving environment, heat already permeated the air. Yet the desert morning remained as beautiful as ever: the pale red-orange sunrise cast its breathtaking radiance across the dunes.
Despite this magnificent morning, Ribbontail was in a bit of a stoic, unfeeling mood. Along the canyons side she padded along with her two friends. She had been walking for much of last night and began this process again early in the morning, which had now begun to make her paws sore.
At least its not an injury, she thought rather optimistically as she recalled the woes of her previous trials. I could always have a broken paw or something.
