Chapter 25 - Bed Bugs
It began snowing again. Eventually forming into a snowstorm that kept both sides cooped inside till it cleared up. The Scout took the opportunity to begin his research through the book of paranormal studies. He locked himself in his room and sat on his bed, silently reading through the book, cover to cover. The Spycrab could only watch, feeling a bit helpless due to his form. Desperately, he wished he could help the Scout in some way - or that he at least knew something that would help lift his own curse. That wasn't going to happen anytime soon, but at least he kept the new BLU Spy away from the RED Scout. That was really the only bright side he could find.
The next few days were clear weather, allowing the teams to battle again. Leaving the Spycrab to only watch the fight from the window. At the end of the day, the Scout would return, shower quickly, then resume reading the book - Almost like clockwork.
The Scout eventually finished the book, only

Pain. That's the only thing I feel. Every nerve in my body is crying out in firey agony, as if some pyromaniac had lit them on fire. It torments me a great deal, but I can't help it. I just lay there on the bed, looking at the peeling ceiling. Funny, isn't it? It hurts to lay in a comfy bed. The irony is strong enough to taste - it doesn't taste good. Apart from that, my jaw is clenched tight and the inside of my mouth is burning like a furnace. My tongue was swollen last time I remember. It hurt like a bitch back then. Luckily, I can't feel it now.
I'm not sure whether that's a good thing or a bad thing.
Beside me is another bed with a dead soldier on it. I don't know which one he is, but I know that he's dead. He died from blood loss, as I can tell from the steady drips of blood from bed. I stopped counting after four thousand. My braincells were commiting suicide one by one from the boredom in this god forsaken room. I wish I could join in with them. Sadly, I cannot.

“You’ve got blood on your hands.”
The RED Sniper turned around at the RED Spy’s remark, his scowl hidden under his mask and hood. It had only been a few minutes since he had left the BLU Spy lying on the floor of that shack, and he wasn’t in the mood for talking.
“’S not mine,” He grunted, shouldering his rifle, and then stalked away, making a beeline for the stairs before anyone else could initiate conversation. He could barely register the voices around him as the team headed for the showers. All he wanted to do was get to the safety of his quarters. Unlike the rest of the team, the Sniper lived in the loft of the base, away from the others. Though the roof was leaky and the place was mostly damp it was the only place where he could think clearly, and remain undisturbed. And presently, that was exactly what he needed to do.
The Australian shucked off his boots the instant he slammed the loft door closed and

"I can't believe your plan worked," Scout said to the RED Spy as the suave man exited the shower room, smelling fresh and in a clean red suit. "The BLU Scout was really pissed about it."
"Was there really any doubt?" the Spy snorted, pausing at the door as the Scout walked up to his own locker.
"Guess not. At least we won," Scout admitted. The Frenchman did a light bow before leaving the shower room.
"We were lucky!" the Medic chirped as he removed his rubber gloves, hoping to shower himself.
"Dah!" the Heavy agreed. "We did good!"
The Sniper stood next to the Scout. He looked at the runner as he removed his vest.
"You gonna tell 'im?" he asked. Scout didn't say a word. "Y'know...'bout them voices?"
"It's not important," Scout whispered.
"If you don't, I will." Scout glared at the taller man.
"Don't you dare!" he hissed. Sniper on

The Spy opened his eyes to the sound of laughter. For a moment, he panicked, unsure of where he was. He remembered collapsing outside of the infirmary, and then… nothing. He was lying on his back, his arms loosely splayed over his chest. Out of the corner of his eye, he could see the medigun that had been permanently attached to the ceiling. Overhead, he could hear the cooing of doves and the flapping of wings. It seemed the Medic had found him before he bled out.
Grimacing, the Spy sat up, rubbing his balaclava. It was still damp from the rain and the pool, which meant that his team hadn’t tried to take it off while he was out. It was a small mercy, at least. It would cost him his job to be seen without the balaclava. Best not to think of that now.
He found himself on one of the uncomfortable hospital beds, covered by a thin blanket. He was shirtless, but he still had his pants and belt. His shirt, along with his blazer and shoes, were placed neatly on a ch

“He asked you to do WHAT now?”
The RED Scout sighed as he leaned against the remaining wall of the destroyed cabin. Part of him was regretting seeking advice from his BLU counterpart, but then again, he didn’t have anyone else to ask.
When he had the chance, he snuck out in the middle of the night to locate the BLU Scout’s room. He almost got caught a couple of times, but his lightning-fast reaction time got him in and out of the base before anyone - especially that BLU Spy - suspected a RED was in the base.
It was simple: Wait for another rest period between endless fights and tell the BLU Scout what was going on. Easy. The trick was to explain it quickly to his counterpart in a single breath before running back to the RED base like a bat out of hell. The Scout was lucky the BLU Scout was smarter than he looked.
On a side note - despite their similar appearances -The RED Scout always thought the BLU Scout looked a

The Spy makes an impatient noise and shakes the bag in his hands at you, goading you to hurry up. His masked face shows his displeasure. You ignore his raised eyebrows and plunge your hand into the dark bag, letting your fingers trace the sides till they reach the bottom.
Your hand searches the near empty depths of the bag till your reaching fingers brush against something silky and smooth. You gently wrap your fingers around the foreign object, feeling how it is virtually weightless. Its presence is only just recognisable on your skin.
You retract your hand and see the item resting against your fingers. It's a long feather. The plume is a clean shade of white, the feel of it against your skin soft and light. You feel y
Lessons for TodayToday in math class, they would be learning how to factor quadratic equations. Miss Gracie, called Mrs. G by her students, knew this because she had the lesson planned out meticulously across three-and-a-half sheets of college-ruled notebook paper, which sat neatly in a folder before her. She knew because, like with all her lessons, she had recited it in front of her dressing mirror last night, right before bed.Lessons for Today2 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
She glanced at the clock. Ten minutes left until class. Its tick, tick, tick was the only sound in the room.
She looked around the room. Nothing but the equation charts that she covered with long sheets of colored paper during tests (always to the dismay of the students) and Tu fui, ego eris. Latin. What you are, I was; what I am, you will be. She stared at it. She had written it out on a sheet of white cardstock and stuck it to the wall with blue tape on her first day.

They'd been practically invading my thoughts lately- oh, you want to write a story? Why not add some sexy mercenaries? And while you're at it, an orgy sounds great right about now... No, no, no! Stop it! You'd love to just scream at yourself for how fucking stupid and perverted you are. I slam my laptop shut in frustration and throw it across the bed, crushing an unsuspecting bag of Doritos as it lands. I slam my head back on my pillow and throw the covers over my head and I'm ready to call it a night.
That's when someone knocked at my door.
I rolled my eyes, then remembered that no one was home- or at least, no one was supposed to be home. I got up quietly and grabbed the knife I kept in my drawer for any kind of break-in or emergency, hid it in my sleeve like a Spy with his Sharp Dresser, and slowly opene

Zim glared at the dark, cloudy sky as it cried with rain. He hated this 'hyooman weather' nonsense.
He stuck out his hand, only to take it back and hiss. Steam rises up from the newly formed wound. Zim sighed angrily, before plopping down on the stairs of 'Skool'.
A young girl passed by, opening up her umbrella and was about to walk off when she saw the sulking, mad alien. "Zim?"
Zim looked up, then quickly averted his eyes. It was (Y/n) (L/n), the girl he likes. "Hey, aren't you going to go home?" (Y/n) asked.
Zim answered with silence, trying to stop the spreading blush on his cheeks. (Y/n) just noticed now that he has no umbrella with him.
(Y/n) sighed and stuck out her hand. "Zim, come on. The teachers will come and kick you out into the rain. Don't you want to avoid that?" (Y/n) tried. Zim just glared at her in response.

You sat quietly at a bench with your friend, Matthew. He watched you out the corner of his eye, staring into the baby blue sky, wondering what it was you were pondering.
He loved it when you spaced out and thought like that, it gave him time to take in your every detail.
He thought you were beautiful. Every line, every curve, you were just perfect.
Your soft, angelic voice broke him out of his entrancement as he turned fully to look at you.
"What is your definition of beauty?"
Matthew tore his eyes away from you for a second before looking up into the sky, thinking carefully about his answer.
You watched as his face began heating up and he uttered words which caused time, in your mind, to slow down considerably. A blush spread across your cheeks like wildfire and your eyes were the size of dishes.
That word played over and over in your mind.

Synopsis: ______ is a human-turned-Shinigami. Between learning how to collect souls, properly swing a death scythe, and finding out exactly what happened to her on that fateful day, she finds herself transfixed on making a certain man smile.
Warning(s): Slight language, slight violence.
“Good. You’re early.” He said without looking up. “Are you ready to begin?”
“Yeah.” She replied simply, trying to hide the fact that she was out of breath. In truth, being early was the last thing ______ intended that morning. She’d woken up in a panic believing that she was an hour late, only to look at the clock in utter disbelief when she walked into the Shinigami Dispatch Society lobby. So either her clock was defected, or she was just an idiot.

Each time Ryou went to ask [Name] to be his date, something prevented him from doing so. Though whether it was a duel, personal issues or just a lack of good timing, the end result was always the same; he lacked confidence, --coupled with a fear of rejection-- so the words never came out.
He should have just asked [Name] right off the bat, instead of waiting for the perfect opportunity. Maybe then he wouldn't be sitting alone outside like the coward he saw himself as. It was then that Ryou came to the decision of leaving. Perhaps the walk home will help clear his regret?

His good points? He was kind, and though he was shy, he never hesitated on the battlefield. He's always there, rushing to his friends aid, despite wondering if he would really be able to help or if he'd be a nuisance.
But that's on the battlefield. In person, he's hesitant. He complains that he "Can't handle" anything that's been given to him. Unsure of how to respond to any situation that's even slightly out of the ordinary. And he's afraid. He's always afraid. Afraid of not being good enough, afraid of disappointing his new-found friends, afraid Medusa will come back for him. He's always afraid. He's afraid he might hurt someone. He's afraid of being left behind.

the Pyro eats some lime,
he pulls up his mask,
the Scout enters, but didn't ask.
Dumb Scout sees his face,
the scene turns into a chase,
the burned face of mumbles,
he angrily grumbles.
Soon he burns Scout's ass,
the boy with sass,
he screams and cries,
he looks into the Pyro's eyes.
The Scout cries for help,
through his lips a yelp,
Medic doesn't care,
he just gets a glare.
Soon the cries for help die,
Scout does nothing but cry,
the Pyro goes back to eat,
the lime tastes sweet.
