Destiny is a Bitch (Jack Frost x Reader) Chapter 9The school day seemed to drag on for you. You just wanted it to be over so badly. But it was only 3:24. Only one more minute till I get to leave… C’mon stupid bell! You were waiting impatiently for the bell to ring so you could see Jack. The clock finally went to 3:25 and the bell began to ring.

You went back to your locker and packed your stuff as fast as possible and left. You went back to the forest where Jack dropped you off. He was leaning on a tree waiting for you. You smiled and walked over to give him a hug. “Hey Jack.” You said.
“Hey [Name], ready to go home?” Jack asked.
“Yup,” Jack held your waist as you wrapped your arms around him. The wind picked you both up as you were now high in the sky.
In no time at all you were home. You got out your keys and unlocked the door so

Smells of cold nights;
In creep Winter’s fingers.
Folks’ hands they hold mugs
Of heartwarming drinks
To ward off the chills
That linger in streets.
Mulled wine for the elders,
Hot cocoa for the youth,
These remedies thaw smiles
from frost-frowns, forsooth .
Snowmen and snowwomen
Spring up from the ground
Little knowing that Spring
Will pull them back down.
Slowly the woolly hats,
Thermals and mittens
Uncover pale faces
Hidden from vision
For so long by Winter
- who’s had his reign –
Tis time for the sun
To Spring life up again.
But not without showers
Nor cold snaps – watch out!
Do not be surprised
For a last wintery bout.
Eventually comes Summer,
Always late and never stays,
Like a young introvert
Too shy for much play.
But while the heat rages
So the barbecues sizzle,
Sunbathers fill beaches,
Melting ice cream dribbles.
Summer burns short and sharp
Though it never was meant:
From her brief spells of hot
Shadows of WhalesWhat I wanted to say was that I remembered the clouds,Shadows of Whales2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
that I watched them paint shadows across the ground,
giant birds of prey gliding across the aether - whales,
lost in a different sea, to float
white and pregnant
with all the sounds of things; thundering out
threats of the sky, sounds full of fury
and the disease that catches you off guard
"Open your door. I must come in."
what I wanted to say was that the echoes are the same
that the pulses of sound are just pieces of the original
instead of slightly dimmer copies
every one a herald
of the silence, soon to come.
I wanted to say things that, maybe, you'd listen to -
that sort of alabaster sound that grabs your chin
forces you to look deeply into brimming eyes
and then tear yourself away
one piece less
slightly less whole.
but there are reasons to believe,
tiny imprints in the sand that spin the shape of feet
that glance softly against your shadow
then fade into the ocean
where the whales once were,
before they became the casters of
Alert LevelsThe English are feeling the pinch in relation to recent terrorist threats and have raised their security level from "Miffed" to "Peeved." Soon, though, security levels may be raised yet again to "Irritated" or even "A Bit Cross." The English have not been "A Bit Cross" since the blitz in 1940 when tea supplies all but ran out. Terrorists have been re-categorized from "Tiresome" to a "Bloody Nuisance." The last time the British issued a "Bloody Nuisance" warning level was in 1588 when threatened by the Spanish Armada.Alert Levels5 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
The Scots raised their threat level from "P*ssed Off" to "Let's get the B*stards." They don't have any other levels. This is the reason they have been used on the front line of the British army for the last 300 years.
The French government announced yesterday that it has raised its terror alert level from "Run" to "Hide." The only two higher levels in France are "Collaborate" and "Surrender." The rise was precipitated by a recent fire that destroyed France's white flag fac
The StorehouseThe cat burglar gripped the outcropping with her thighs as she worked on the high window. She really had to lean on her knife to get through all the old caulk and grout. This old thing must not have been opened in the last 60 years or so.The Storehouse2 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
As soon as she got through the nasty crust of junk, she got out her lock picks from a pouch on her belt and went to work on the lock. This part was easier. She knew all the tricks for opening old locks, and opening a lock forty feet above the sidewalk just made it more fun. Fifteen seconds of work got the lock open, and then she slowly pried open the window and slipped inside. The window was narrow and didn't open very far, but she was easily slender enough to make it through. She wouldn't have made a very good cat burglar otherwise.
She clung to the rafters and looked out over the massive storehouse, row after row of shelves as far as the eye could see. The place was much bigger than it looked from the outside. It didn't take up too much of the stree
The Barracks The wind whips across the barren planet's surface. Red tinted earth glows with the light of the neighboring sun. Several long-abandoned barracks bunched together, the same sun's glint soon overpowered by a brighter light.The Barracks2 years ago in Settings More Like This
All out of nowhere, a barrage of heavy blasts of supercharged plasma obliterate the ground around the structures. The serenity of the scene is turned straight to the horrors that the most war-hardened soldiers fear in their dreams.
A blast lands between several of the barracks, uprooting one of the entire buildings and sending it somersaulting through the air. The light from the sun and the explosions glint off of the twisted metal fragment of it's former self, small molten metal bits fly from it before it crashes to the earth.
The blasts draw to a close and the scene reduced to a hellish aftermath of smoke and smoldering wreckage. A desolate place so seemingly pointless for such a concentrated attack.

This mess, this entire mess started last year, while I was still in secondary school. All I can say about it is this: "Why do these things always happen to me?" I continued thinking, as I stared at the black dragon lying opposite me, regarding me with those sad eyes, as if he wanted to say the same thing. Dragon. Bah. That idiot was the root of all my problems. If only I could just migrate and leave him behind, but of course, he would just fly after me. Damn creature. This nonsense had been going on since he had hatched, and imprinted me as his damn rider. I had never wanted the job, and that had been no secret from the start. I made it plain that I didn't want him, he was irritating, and the biggest nuisance that I had ever encountered. He knew it, I knew it, and he knew that I knew it. Still the damn creature stuck to me, and refused to put me out of my misery, by leaving.
However, I was the one in the wrong. I was stupid enough to do the wrong thing, and it took an episode

A young woman walked through the darkened forest, the only light was the full moon in a crimson coloured sky. Why was the sky crimson, no one knew for sure.

I have no idea how long I have been running and hiding for, but at least I know it has been awhile. I ducked under a bush, trying to catch my breath and hoping to hide from my pursuer. Did I catch my breath? Sorta, did I throw off my pursuer? No. I could tell by the fast and loud wind that had suddenly picked up from the trees, and shortly, a really loud thumping sound on the ground not too far away from where I was hiding. "Dammit" I cursed under my breath before I got up and ran in the opposite direction.
Possibly by now you would want to know who and what is my pursuer, where I am, who I am, what I am (answering this one right now, I`m human) and why I`m talking to myself and pretending like I`m talking to someone at the same time.

The sky cried powerful tears over Abraham's head. He pulled his coat over his head and continued to run down the dirt road, which was quickly turning to mud beneath this torn and blood covered sneakers. He had been running for what felt like weeks, but for what only could have been a few days. Nothing looked familiar to him…which is what he wanted. The trees toward over him like great leafy giants, glaring at him…challenging him. Lightning stuck over head, lighting the sky with its deadly and brilliant lights. The thunder clap was like a loud roar, daring him to continue his made race. Nature itself conspired against him...it fought him.
"Go ahead," he growled to himself, "it's not like life's done me any favors before."
The truth was that Abraham Singer had been running for most of his life. He had no home to speak of…and he had no adults to call parents. To the common eye, Abraham Singer was just a simple 15 year old orphan boy. However, it wasn't pity Abraham wanted…nor was it empat
LuckyI came back to my house late one night after spending all day playing video games at a friend's house. Tia and I had ourselves an enormous breakfast that morning, and Tia, who's breakfast was far larger than my own, had spent the rest of the day lounging in bed, digesting her deliciously filling breakfast of pancakes, eggs, and all sorts of scrumptious breakfast goodies. I took off my shoes at the door and snuck quietly up the stairs in my socks. I opened my bedroom door slowly and peeked inside. Tia was still asleep on the bed, looking quite comfy with her still full tummy. I crept inside and by the warm, blue glow of the nightlight, put down my things, and changed into my PJs. After that I left to brush my teeth and get a glass of water. When I came back into the room I set the glass down on the nightstand and climbed into bed next to my stuffed, scaly pal.

We come into your home just to seek a place that's dry
It gets a little wet when we come from the outside
We only want to eat some of your delicious sugar snacks
And feast upon the filth that you humans have in stacks
We're doing what we're made to do
We're going toward the filth
But damn you humans and the many ways
You come in for the kill
Sometimes we walk, sometimes we fly
What difference does it make?
We have our different methods of getting place to place
As soon as you see us you begin to scream and shout
Sometimes if you're nice enough, you just want us out
But most of the time all you want to do is squash us
With a flip-flop, sneaker, sandal
Fly swatter or goulashes
Then there are those humans who only wish to spray us
And those who put up those hotels, that's a good way to betray us
Then those who are a little off use the soap so we can't breathe
We're already turned over, why can't you let us be?
You flush us down the toilet or throw us in the trash

As the earthworm emerges from her ear canal, following the blood-slick trail down her cheek, the girl can't help wishing she'd listened to family.
Her body is the feverish rush of tempered steel plunged into icy waters. She doesn't know how long she's been trapped down here for. She bases her concept of time upon the alignment of the sun, the moon. Her eyelids are heavy and even if she could open them, she'd see nothing. The smell of dirt, rich and damp, fills her nostrils. She struggles, but it's in vain. The earth is cocoon-tight around her. She pauses and then alarm shoots through her as swiftly as an arrow.
She can't breathe!
Dirt hits the back of her throat as she gasps suddenly, clogging up her windpipe and making her cough and splutter.
She had to get out of here. She has to get out of here now.
Her left hand is above her head. She squirms, hoping she's not got too far to move, hoping beyond hope that any moment now her fingers are going to crack through the surface, feel
