Sit down, Sunbeam, I'll read to you
And though you're so young now
I'll teach you just like I ought to
I'm your sister, I'm your friend, and I'll always love you
Stay still, Sunbeam, I'll hold your hand
And though I can't stop the bleeding
We are here, we are waiting, we are praying for you
Come here, Sunbeam, come dance with me
And though you shouldn't run too fast
I hope you will see
You are ours, you are safe here, we won't ever leave
Wait here, Sunbeam, I'll get what you need
And though you're already growing up
We must make sure you don't bleed
Don't move, don't cry, don't ask me why
I know you're scared, Sunbeam, know I am too
And though I can't say what will happen
I hope we'll make it through
We will go back; return, we will bow to you
I'm reaching for you, Sunbeam, I'm searching for you
And though it is hopeless
I confess I thought they withdrew
I can't find you, I've lost you, don't know where you are
I'm so sorry, S

I walk to it, and open it.
It is one of the guards.
"Miss, I am to take you to the basement.
There are riots.
Please Miss, for your safety." he says.
Why would the guards suddenly care for my family's safety?
We are prisoners of the rebellion.
But, I get up, and follow him
to the cellar.
I see my family there.
My sisters, my father and mother.
The guards gather us together.
Their leader pulls out a slip of paper.
He starts reading the orders that we are to be executed,
Before any of us can do anything,
he takes a pisol, and fires at my father's head.
He collapses in a growing stream of blood.
My mother is praying.
She gets shot too,
before she can finish her prayer.
Then they turn to us.
Now I have completely registered in my mind that I,
Daughter of the Russian Tsar,
will die tonight,

fires at my chest.
The bullet somehow bounces off my corset.

You pause. “To show The terror”? You look back, thinking you’d spotted a minor capitalization error, but now “the” is lowercase. Strange, you think. Usually you don’t even really notice things like that, but you figure it’s just because you’re so tired and pay it no mind as you continue.

It's been a week since he left. I know he said he would be out for a couple of days, but this is taking too much for me to handle.
A few days ago, Cloud came back from a delivery from Condor Fortress and he said they offered him a job. It was something temporary but it would take a while to get it done and the pay will be high. He accepted the offer and promised he would come back as soon the job was done.
I can't help thinking what kind of job he's doing there, but whatever it is, I just hope he's okay. I don't want him to get hurt or anything. I know he's strong and he can take care of himself, but no matter what I do, I just can't stop worrying about him.
Days go by, and still no sign of him.
I call him twice a day to see how's everything; but as usual, he never answers the phone. I always try to keep him abreast of the situation around here, so I leave him messages every time I call him; that way he won't get to worry about us either. The last thing he needs is an

For some reason, I honestly don't know why, I have decided to write about my epileptic experiences through the eyes of Kurt Hummel. Why him out of all the characters? Chris Colfer. I should say Chris Colfer's sister, Hannah.
I read about Hannah Colfer's story about a month ago and reading about what Chris' mom does for Hannah really struck a chord with me. For me, my seizures onset when I was 14 years old and just under a week before my 15th birthday, I was diagnosed with Generalized Tonic-Clonic Epilepsy. The neurologists that I have seen for nearly the past 5 years have no idea what the causes of these seizures are and, with the cause remaining unknown, all we can do is treatment by medication.
I write this story in hopes that maybe awareness for Epilepsy is raised. For people like myself and Hannah Colfer, we need all the help that the people are willing to provide. Epilepsy research is underfunded and needs to be brought into a light that will allow researchers to do their jobs.

That morning, I was preparing myself to leave for Condor Fortress. They offered me a temporary job and I was going to be out for a couple of days. I didn't tell Tifa what kind of job it was, because I knew that she wouldn't approve; and besides, I didn't want her to get worried.
I said goodbye to the children and Tifa. It was really hard for me to leave them like that, so they all gave me something for the trip.
Marlene gave me a drawing with all of us in it. Even Yuffie was in it, but I didn't complain because as much as I hate to admit it, she's been really helpful around the kids and Tifa.
Denzel gave me a small feather. He said it was for good luck. Though, I found it ironic that he gave me a Chocobo feather instead of a Phoenix Down.
Tifa gave me a kiss on the cheek, which made me blush like an idiot. Marlene found it hilarious and Denzel thought it was disgusting. I bet he won't find it disgusting when he starts to like girls.
Anyway, I took off after that and

Donning a trench coat over it, covering yourself from neck to knee, wrapping a scarf around your head, finishing it off with your least favourite shades.
This getup looked way too suspicious but it always did the trick.
Opening the door slowly and locking it behind yourself carefully, being mindful of others' sleep, you quietly jog your way down the long hall, reaching the end of the building. The window's already open.
You made sure to open it last night so you didn't have to wory about it in the morning.

After finding Tiger, Fievel and Olivia decided the only way to help get her mind off of her missing father would be another relaxing trip on his raft. They were still technically heeding Wylie's advice, they weren't by themselves with Tiger watching over them. But Olivia didn't want to end up kidnapped too; she wasn't going anywhere without at least Fievel there with her. On the way over they had stopped by Fievel's home and made sandwiches for themselves (grilled cheese, one of Fievel's favorites), so they could have themselves a picnic on the raft.
"Have ye ever had a cheese crumpet before, Fievel?" Olivia asked as they ate, "They're the most tastiest thing in the whole world."
Fievel thought for a moment, "Oh! Basil gave me one when I climbed through his window."
"Ye climbed through his window?"

Fine silver strands splayed out across the indigo satin pillowcase. His breath was steady and calm as he dozed peacefully.
"Hope," whispered a barely audible feminine voice. He began to stir. "Hope." This time the voice was right in his ear. He could feel her warm breath on his skin.
Turquoise eyes opened to find emerald ones staring back at him. "Vanille " he sleepily whispered as he caught sight of her flame red hair. She smiled that same familiar smile: the one that always rendered him speechless. She climbed onto the bed and laid down beside him. He reached a hand out to touch her fine, curly locks. One of her hands delicately glided up his chest while her eyes traced the outline of his blanket-covered body.
"You're all man-shaped now " she mused aloud.

The two of you quickly got in line and the wait began. Thor was doing some holiday shopping while you and your daughter were in line. This gave Thor the perfect oppurtunity to get his daughter some presents without her knowing. Him being a God and all, it should be an easy task.
