Nimble had just put on the last of her school uniform. She looked at herself in the mirror and said, “I don’t think I’ll ever get used to this uniform. I miss my undertaker uniform.”
“it’s school regulation.” Krela said with a chuckle, “Each grade has a marking to show what level they are in. Freshmen, like us, don’t have any. But sophomores have a bronze trim, juniors have silver trim, and seniors have gold trim.”
Nimble nodded as she heard a bell ring and asked, “What the heck was that?”
“That would be morning roll call!” Krela said in a panic as she quickly grabbed her staff and ran out the door with Nimble following slowly behind her, the Phantasm scythe in tow.
Meanwhile Frankie was still fussing with his uniform as his roommate, Martin, was adjusting his hat in the mirror.

Kennedy Space Center, Florida, the United States
Space shuttle Challenger stood vertically on the launch pad, ready for launch. He felt nervous about the whole idea of the launch, due to the numerous amounts of delays leading up to the launch. Not to mention that ice of all things had accumulated on the launch pad due to frigid weather earlier in the day. Mission control and scientists debated for some time whether or not to allow the launch to proceed. But the technicians cleared Challenger for launch and the crew of 7 boarded the shuttle. With a full load of fuel and all systems go for launch, Challenger felt confident that he could make it into orbit in the next few minutes. But being a conscious machine meant he could tell that something, something small was not right. But putting those feelings aside and with his nose pointing to the sky, Challenger had only one thought run through his mechanized mind.
“This is it, Challenger. The moment of truth. You

The night air blew cool and briskly over the Osaka Bay. The city itself illuminated the sky like a star, keeping many stars in the sky out of sight, while the city shone bright; the moon hovered over the city like a great lantern of old. In the center of the bay stood Kansai airport, constructed on a great artificial island. Its lights created a rainbow of colors, from the runway and taxiway lights to the grand terminal gates.
Sitting on an empty stretch of tarmac sat a white Gulfstream G650, silent and in waiting. Water droplets condensed on the fuselage and wings while the jet awaited a most important passenger. Opening his green eyes, the jet looked across the black unlit area of tarmac around him. But a light appeared in the distance and began to close in. The jet’s automated scanners detected the incoming vehicle and on his HUD confirmed that this was his passenger.
“Right on time.” The jet said to himself.

Space Shuttle Columbia has begun to reenter the Earth’s atmosphere, but due to damage suffered to the left wing during launch, superheated gases begin to melt the ship’s fragile wing from the inside. Right before all digital contact with Columbia was lost over Texas, she sent encrypted messages to Space Shuttle Discovery, safe home in Florida below.
D: “Columbia, I hear you. What’s happening?”

D: “Uh, say again?”
C: “My wing… It’s been damaged, I’m melting from the inside.”
D: “I’m sorry?!” (Discovery doesn’t want to believe what he’s being transmitted.)

The big white Mitsubishi woke up slowly. Even before he opened his eyes, he knew there was someone else in the bed with him. A bit groggy, he tried to remember what happened last night, which girl was it this time? How much had he been drinking? Had he been drinking at all?
Voltz rubbed his windshield as he rolled over to stand up. He hadn't been drinking last night, it was just Wednesday, and he never drank during the week. Showing up at work not being sober was strictly prohibited. He didn't remember being on a date either. He turned to look, his eyes following the soft curves of a bright wh
Mardais' Journey: Enter the Bengal Pirates'Well, if my guess is right, I should be at the island of Loguetown in only three days,' Mardais Lemieux thought, laying down in her two person sail boat.

She asked herself, pulling her black wool Ram hat down over her eyes, as if to sleepMardais' Journey: Enter the Bengal Pirates6 months ago in Short Stories More Like This
Mardais Lemieux was a tan-skinned woman with long, silky caramel hair falling almost down to her knees, and gentle eyes as red as crimson blood. She was a fit woman. Standing a little over 5'7”, Mardais had a trimmed elegant figure, not having even so much as an ounce of unneeded fat on her being. Tattooed on her left arm was the symbol for Aries, her Astrology sign. On her right arm are two black lightning bolts, in the same area as her Aries tattoo.
But her most noticeable features, which she was both proud of, but annoyed of in certain situations, were her overly obvious womanly features. At the age of 23, Mardais Lemieux was surprisingly well endowed w

It was getting pretty cloudy and Diver banked to the right to watch as Ghost shot past, much faster than hi. Despite never being able to get past that invisible barrier to get back to civilization, they could still fly.
At least the TBM bombers, so lighter personal planes and Ghost could. Ghost could barely take off on the cleared patch of ground the TBMs called a runway, every other aircraft was too big, having made a soft crash landings or had dragged themselves out of the ocean with the help of one of the ships.
Diver couldn't keep up with his 'adoptive' son, and Ghost couldn't slow himself down enough to stay with him, so when ever the two went flying, it was usually silent as Ghost darted around the clouds and he just let the wind roll over his wings.
Suddenly he saw Ghost slow down to slower than normal, not enough to s

The one sentence poem...
Give me your hand
Let's once again stand
My heart that's calling for you
The hope that will rise
In your soul like the yellow sun
Through clouds of depression
Your world of sadness
Together we will be...
Reach and Embrace that Feeling that you See when you and I Walk and Conquer our depression Together.

LoveLove is when somebody gives you a shoulder to cry on.Love1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
Love is when somebody makes you laugh when you're sad.
Love is when you miss somebody whenever they are gone.
Love is when whenever you see that person you feel glad.
Loving somebody is choosing not to see their flaws.
A human being will never be perfect.
Everything that person does you will give a loud applause.
Cause in your eyes everything that person does is correct.
You want them to smile.
You would work extra just to be with that person.
Even if it would be just for a while.
Love is unconditional, that's the truth.
