Mias is dead.
She felt a sharp twisting in her chest at the very thought, and she wanted nothing more than to crumple to the floor and cry. She looked towards the island, only able to see the outline of the cliffs and the glimmer of waves as they drifted onto the shore. Elle wanted to hurl herself over the side of the ship, to swim back to Mias and hold him in her arms one last time. But she knew there would be no point in it, that all the wishing and crying, all the promises and kisses in the world would never bring him back. All she could do now was hope that Mias knew what she felt for him. That his love for her was matched by her love for him.
She watched as Elias climbed up the last few steps of the ladder with a wide grin on his face,
Something Is True: Chapter 1 (The Scent of Home)The scent of the ocean mingled with the odor of gunpowder, the acidic smell of alcohol, and the giggles and mumblings of those on its beach, and for Edward Kenway, that unified scent was that of home, the sounds a mere white noise that calmed him as he sipped at cheap rum. When the sun set, it was like a stupor overcame him, a sense of rightness, though others would say he was just tipsy and exhausted.Something Is True: Chapter 1 (The Scent of Home)2 years ago in Romance More Like This
A smaller figure sat beside him on the beach, the blonde not needing to raise his head to assign an identity, "Kidd."
"Kenway," James replied, pulling Edward's rum straight from his hands, and tossing it back, then holding onto it, "It seems yer taste in women...doesn't match yer taste in rum. Tell me you're certain Thatch didn't piss in it..."
"I accept cheap things to afford bigger prizes," he paused, turning to James, "If it were Thatch's piss...it'd get me drunk faster."

"What are you playing with, Kenway?" says Mary, causing me to look up. I'm sitting around the bonfire at Pirate's Cove, toying with a trinket. Mary's back in her James Kidd disguise, but now that I know her secret I can't help but let my eyes trace the curves she's trying to hide. I'd like to say she's failing, but she's spent years wearing it and those curves are barely visible. Damn it. She takes a seat next to me at the now deserted fire. I wonder how long I've been here, staring into nothing. I toss her the locket I've been playing with. She catches and opens it, looking at the picture of me inside.
"It belonged to my wife," I say. She clears her throat.
"Aye, I recall you saying you had one."
"Then you'll also be remembering I told you she left me long ago."

I never believed in love at first sight. I don't believe in changing myself to make someone love me and I sure as hell don't believe in those quizzes that insist we're perfect for each other or that it's true love.
And yet, here I am buying Seventeen. Again. I fiddle with my red ponytail, I'm probably needing a cut soon, while the cashier runs my purchases. Three packs of beef jerky and two Gatorades along with the magazine get stuffed into my back pack. Not as easy as it sounds considering I'm also carrying two smoothies and trying to leave as fast as humanely possible.
I hate the mall and want to get out as quickly as I can; it's noisy and all the beauty stores with their scented everything give me a headache. Nothing I can do about it though, Booster Juice is a decent place to work while I'm in school.

NightmaresSnarls rent the night, as she panted in exertion to put one foot in front of the other. She could hear them coming, their heavy breathing with tongues lolling from their mouths, saliva dripping from blood slathered jaws. With one chocolate eye she looked over her shoulder, only to scream as she fell over an unseen tree root. Blood swelled to the surface of her skinned knees as she hastily moved to get back to her feet, tearing her already ruined kimono.Nightmares6 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This

I wake up the morning of our date early. I don't look at the time, but the sun is just starting to rise.
I slide out of bed, Will had earned the top bunk again the night before and I was glad. Being on the bottom was easier to get up without waking him.
I make myself some quick breakfast and decide to play a bit of my favourite rpg while I eat my bagel and cream cheese. Will teases me a lot for owning, and beating, at least eighty percent of the games. The ones that were released in North America at least, he's actually played a couple of them too. Besides, he watches this one British sci-fi show religiously. It's kind of cute really cause my mum watches it too so they bond over it.
I wash my dishes as quietly as I can and glance at the time. It was almost eight, time to shower so we can leave whenever Will wakes up. It's nice, showering in the quiet. It gives me time to think.
On my way to the bathroom I see my backpack; the clothes Lorcan

Masks her sobs.
As her happiness

To please you
In everything she does.

She'll do anything
To please you.

Slowly but surely, Thane kept his behavior and language in check, even going so
far as to apologize and offer Mias the chance to punch him back. Mias accepted the apology,
but declined the offer. He understood why Thane acted the way he did – it had been his
natural fight or flight instinct in charge. Within the first two days, Mias turned his

Maybe it was a lapse in judgment, or perhaps a true desire to mess with Thane, but
while he was helping Thane redress his wounds, Mias conjured a small, dancing emerald
flame in the palm of his hand. Thane caught sight of it and froze. “What are you—?” Mias
curled his fingers around the flame and threw it into the fireplace. It engulfed the wood

Anne's been in that dank prison for two weeks now, and we still haven't settled on a plan. Ade and Ah Tabai arrived a few days after us, and we've spent all our time since scouting the prison yard, holding planning meetings, and bribing guards for information. I've spent hours perched on the highest points in Kingston, using what Kidd calls my "eagle vision" to plot out hiding spots, escape routes, guard rotations, basically anything that might assist in this rescue.The Rescue of Anne Bonny: AU AC Black Flag 52 years ago in Romance More Like This

Loki’s mind was at one with the song, his breath barely past it’s normal rate as his body moved with the music, frost flying as he neared the final seconds. The song was near its close, and he prepared his body and mind for the final leap.
The last chord hung in the air as Loki’s skates left the ice. His body twirled in the air for the span of a heartbeat, and a rare smile crossed his face as his body spun, first one skate slamming into the landing, and then the second.
He’d done it, he’d landed it, and someone was watching. His heart skipped a beat in surprise, and his skate caught in a track, and he felt himself stumble as the song went to static, the music done. With a startled c

His first visit was to Mrs Madrigal at the far end of the valley. Her triplets were feverish, so he calmed and soothed them with the medicines in his little black bag until they fell into a rhythmic sleep. He left their worried mother with a chill pill and instructions to bring them to the surgery in the morning.
Back on the path, feet pumping, heart thumping, cane tapping, he scaled the ascent to Beggar's Farm, where Mr Williams was feeling crotchety. The problem was minor so his work was minimal and the visit brief.
He paused at the farm gates to enjoy the cooler breeze of the hilltop and watch the stars in their slow spiral dance. He patted the pockets of his long frock coat to locate his pipe, and smoked a bowl as he traced the dark line of the hills across the way and the yellow lights of the houses in the village below. A sheep bleated in a nearby field and he was content. Life in the valley was harmonious, a pasto

She tried to scream when she saw a form coming towards her out of the shadows, but only managed a small squeak. She shot up in bed and scooted back until she was pressed against the headboard, bringing her knees to her chest.
When the figure became clearer thanks to the candlelight, Elle let out a shaky breath when she saw that it was only Mias.
"You scared the hell out of me," Elle breathed, pressing her hand against her chest.
Mias tilted his head as he watched her, a sly smile spreading across his lips. His eyes dragged over her face and down her neck to where she had the blanket tugged up over her knees, before his gaze met hers once more.

My little story will make thee sigh
A divine land thou will go tonight
A land that's surely a sight
The meadow flows in the breeze
Its beauty can be such a tease
Be sure to watch where ye has stepped
There are secrets this sea of green has kept
Small people with fluttering wings and glittering dust
To them, meeting you is a must
Their laughter sounds of tinkling bells
By the second, more come out of their shells
Thou begins to giggle with glee
As more come out to play with thee
A thundering noise thou begins to hear
Do not fret, there's no need to shed a tear
A galloping horse with a horn comes this way
Looking for a rider for the day
He stops in front of thee
No sign shows he will flee
The small people showed benevolence
Riding such a creature may at first seem tense
Be sure to hold on tight
The horse spreads its wings, ready to take flight
Into the infinite sky you go
Such a view can never be seen from below
The cool air surrounding ye

So, so you think you can tell,

When you have half
Of your heart

And he never takes off
his other half of it.
When your legs are
underneath where none sees,
when hands are forbidden.
When he catches you,
Even if you are not falling.
When he is all you
Ever think about.
When he is the only one
that can make you blush.
When you can count the stars,
Even if it's a cloudy sky.
When he plays your favorite song,
On his guitar just for you.
When he throws you in a pool in January,
But jumps in after you to see if you are okay.
When he kisses you at midnight,
In his own backyard,
On news years eve.
When you sleep on his chest,
While he protects you from thunderclaps.
When you cover the driveway,
With colourful chalk,
And it starts to rain and wash it off
but you dont care.
When he skips school when you are sick
