chapter four: eyes on fire
"You can't fight forever." ~ Aang
It was nothing short of a miracle that the two men made it to the next town without killing each other. They didn't even argue, not once, restricting their communication to a few sentences at the most.
Grimmjow didn't really think about it, his mind already preoccupied with formulating plans on how to reach Ba Sing Se as quickly as possible. However, the rare instances it crept into his thoughts he questioned why he savored the comfort of their silence yet wished the orangette following his lead through the bamboo forest break it with one of his sarcastic comments. And then Grimmjow's stomach always did flips due to his realization that he was actually fretting over his feelings similar to a naive, lovesick youth.

'I mean,there is no way you can get that caught into someone,is it?'
'Is it?' the last part echoed through the Romanian's head,fading little by little until it hit the back of his thoughts and came back amplified.
That was a question which bothered him for quite some time - and no matter how much he tried to avoid it,it kept coming to him.
Staying by the lake's edge,water lapped at the edge of the male's naked toes - it felt wonderful and peaceful when world was like this - birds chiriping,shadow falling upon him,keeping the sun's light at a safe distance,the turquoise water deep and mute,disturbed from time to time by the delicate coloured pebbles which he himself threw seemed heaven.
Touching with one long pale finger the surface of the lake,waiting for the small waves to settle - the Romanian couldn't hear the delicate steps of a certain someone - which were more floated

The day when your life turned upside down.
The day when blood spilled onto your hands...and they never went away.
They never loved me. It was all a lie. I screamed, yelled, and cried just to have some sort of equality between my sister and me. What made her so special? Was I just a mistake? My so-called “parents” don’t want to listen to reason; only to their own ignorance. There never was fairness to begin with. A split of a second passed by when my head was turned forcefully with an unspeakable pain on the side of my face. Dad hit me. His own daughter. No. I’m not his daughter. I’m just some kid living in the same house. I caught sight of the knife dad uses for fishing. I’ll show him who’s stupid. It’s now or never as I grabbed the handle.
Then...your whole world crumbled.

The sea of people continued to scatter around the bright streets until multiple copies of the man appeared before them.
"I said...KNEEL!" The horned man and his copies struck down their scepters to the ground. Everyone in the center of them fell silent and went onto their knees. He smiled at the sight. "Is not this simpler? Is this not your natural state? It's the unspoken truth of humanity, that you crave subjugation. The bright lure of freedom diminishes your life's joy in a mad scramble for power, for identity. You were made to be ruled. In the end, you will always kneel."
"Not today!" you yelled behind him. He turns to see you dashing at him and jump into a flying kick right at his face. A smirk appeared on his face and quickly steps away from your kick making you missing your target and land on the ground.
"Aren't you a feisty one?" he said to you in an amused tone. You stood up straight and pointed at him.
"Loki of Asgard. You have the right to remain silent!"

“For the love of Aulë will you stop fidgeting Kili!?” Fili snapped, his tone belied by his small smile. The heir to the throne was currently twisting his brother’s hair back into its customary braids. “Anyone would think that you were incapable of remaining seated in one place for an extended period of time”
“Well I did drive the elven guard to distraction when we were imprisoned in Thranduil’s dungeons” Kili mused, wincing when Fili gave the braid a warning tug. He chuckled at his own joke and allowed his brother to finish his hair. “I do like that Bombur’s throwing a feast to formally welcome Bilbo home”
“I quite agree with you, though I think a part of him will always be in the Shire” Fili said slowly, securing the braided hair with a silver clasp.

I looked at the bastard that was sitting by the tree in the school yard, a happy and oblivious grin on his face.
It didn't even take me two seconds to turn and flee from where I stood, tears gathering in the corners of my eyes as I started to grit my teeth together, ignoring the damned Albino and French pervert that were calling out my name.
No! They had to be wrong!
The albino and the pervert had ditched Antonio by the tree for a few moments to talk to me, and they had told me that the tomato bastard was head over heels for me
No, that couldn't be right!
He couldn't love me I was sour and unfriendly

He was cuter, nicer, funnier, more sociable, and just over all better than I would ever be

For what ever reason, your boss, Ludwig liked to partner you with his brother for projects at work. Whenever it was just the two of you, Gilbert would constantly tease you about your size. He'd pinch your love handles, offer you his leftovers, criticize the food you ate. It didn't matter what it was, Gilbert would find some way to tease you about your weight. He would always comment on how if you wore makeup and put some effort into the way you looked you might actually be able to get a boyfriend. You tried complaining to your boss about it, but it did no good, Gilbert would just lie and say that he wasn't picking on you, that you were taking his compliments the wrong way, and of course, Ludwig would believe him, so you just stopped complaining about it, except to Arthur.

Summary: Gabriel wasn't the favorite angel of the Host, considering. Neither was Castiel, considering. So playing dead and staying mum was probably the best idea. Considering.But Loki wasn't fond of considering.
All you had to do was burn a little.
You looked your enemy squeare in the eye, stood your ground, waited to feel the cold steel, extended your wings wide and burned. The imprint you left was big, dark, wing-shaped. Exactly like the one burned by grace imploding and vanishing with the death of an angel. You burned, cut yourself off from the Angel Network and you played dead like a clever Trickster Archangel.
Gabriel had not quite so much deserted the boys as gently made his way out of the scene and let them decide the history of mankind as God would have wanted it.
When Castiel had thrown up Leviathan and writhed in pain on the shore, shivering from drawback and possession by mystical creature, Gabriel had picked him up

Standing before a regal, yet functional in size, Cloudsdale home were two blue Pegasi. One, the smaller of the two, was standing with a smile as she observed the delightful architecture of the house, its pillars reminding her of those found in her own residence.
The other, however, bit his lip and quivered as he looked at the front door of it. His pale blue coat reflected the fear he had inside him well, matching the color one would associate to someone who had just encountered a ghost. His dress shirt adorned with medals of valor did little to ease his fears as the mare beside him replied.
"Because I haven't seen my family in like, foreverl Come on Soarin, I didn't think you were such a scaredy-pony."
The stallion swallowed his breath and looked to the cloud beneath him, unable to look the mare in the eye, "But why do I even need to be here? Couldn't you...well, visit them by yourself, Dashie?"

Merely an Absence of Heat - Soarin'Dash ContestTwilight once told me that the term 'cold' describes merely the absence of heat. When it's freezing outside and the chilly wind cuts your ears, your teeth chattering and your knees knocking, it's not because coldness envelopes you like darkness to drain your soul, no, it's that there is no heat around to bother about you and satisfy your soul. It's that you're missing something in your life, rather than something else occupying you.Merely an Absence of Heat - Soarin'Dash Contest3 years ago in Romance More Like This
But if by that theory that cold is an absence rather than a presence, then theoretically you'd feel nothing. You can feel comfortable at room temperature, slightly uncomfortable at body temperature, and would be scorched alive at the sun's temperature. But what if it's chilly? What if you were in absolute zero? Does it mean you wouldn't feel anything?

They paid no heed to the dark sedan that was approaching them slowly.Wrong Place, Wrong Time1 year ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
