OW! JEEZ! Tin exclaimed after having a random item thrown at his head; it was hard and it hurt like heck. Please! J-just calm dow- Another one hit him right in the face. OW!! ZOHMYGOD! MY NOSE! IS IT BLEEDING!? OH GOD, I THINK ITS BLEEDING! He winced and squinted his eyes seeing Campara make another hasty leap over to the ventilation pipe and he watched her grab it with both hands. W-what are you doing ? He watched her open a hatch in the pipe and bring her face to it.
HELLOOOO!! HEY!! she screamed in it, her voice echoing through the pipes. IM KIDNAPPED AND I NEED SOMEONE!! HEEEEY!! HEEEEEY!!
From outside Dark Brothers Pub in the storming rain, Camparas echoing voice could be heard shooting out through the pipes on the rooftop. Nobody

I am writing this down because I am terrified. Maybe if I can write down the events that have occurred this past week, I can gauge some understanding of the situation, or at least try and work out what I can do to try and save myself. I don’t even know what is real anymore. Maybe I’ve gone mad. Perhaps this nightmare is exactly that, just a bad dream that I will wake up from. But the problem is, I can’t wake up from this. So it must be real. If anybody is reading this, please find a way to help me. Please. I am begging you.

Tremendously loud thunder shook the two-story restaurant yet Mellons laughing could still be heard from outside. Not only his, but Darkchovis as well. Sophia and Zero were sitting down at the bar table and Count Merry stood up in between them, looking at Darkchovi with a deadpan expression, mostly on the side of irritation.
Dude, come on, the bartender said, serving Zero and Sophia mugs of hot chocolate followed by Butler shyly serving up some whipped cream and a straw for the ax-handed freak. Youre telling me that Dolls chased you into the underground railroad and you came in contact with a ghost train? Dont make me laugh, pixies. Im too old for scary stories.
It tried to kill us! Sophia could not hold back her annoyance and anger. We could have DIED, stupid! Zer

Dust stirred and swirled with the hum of displaced air as the small shuttle deployed its landing struts and lowered itself onto one of the many the brightly colored docking pads that sprouted from the sides of the tall cylindrical building. The little bronze colored vessel settled itself onto the flat surface. As its engines powered down and the dust settled an emblem could be seen on its side--a small feathered arrow underlining the word ‘Tonto’.
There was a metallic complaint of under-oiled hinges as a hatch in the belly of the Tonto slid open and a ramp unfolded. Before the walkway had even touched the ground a pair of well-worn cowboy boots, complete with polished spurs and buckles, hit the colorful turf of the docking platform.
Rover Finnigan was tall with broad shoulders and an eager smile. There was a soft clicking whir as his left arm, a co

An hour has passed since their previous rest stop and then the posses piano vehicle finally came to a stop. Sophia and Zero were terribly refreshed and happy to see light again after being stored down in the compartment for a long while. This doesnt look like an Eccentric Avenue tme, dude, Mellon commented, staring ahead at the grandly grimy swamp ahead of them. Actually, Im not even too sure we should even BE here.
Darkchovi hopped off the vehicle and told everyone to get off of it and steer clear, allowing Butler to once again switch some gizmos around in the back of the strange rickshaw. It was an amazing sight, what everyone just saw. A tremendous balloon spewed out from the center of the car and inflated automatically, not changing the spacious seating within the vehicle but certainly makin

This is bad. This is so very bad! Tins shivering voice echoed in the darkness. Mellon was squeezed right next to him, lifting the sewer lid just a crack, peering into the snowy, empty street. And brilliant idea, Melloni! Ive always wanted to dive head-first into a grimy sewer!
Yeah, yeah, yeah. Ladies first, Mellon sighed. Tin was forcefully thrown out of the sewer hole, hitting the snowy pavement hard. He continued to whine and complain at how wet and slimy he was and Mellon helped Zero out of the hole, carefully pulling him out by his wrists. And I would zip it if I were you. Your annoying nagging is what almost got us killed about five minutes ago. We were lucky there was a cesspool around to escape through.
Zero slimily stood up, retching at how bad he smelled and how grimy he was. Then he calmly looked all around him; they

Keep your head down and just hang on tighter! Bella Morte yelled back Sophia as they sped through the ever-increasing blizzard on the motorcycle. And quit your slipping! If you fall, Im not turning around for you!
The Dolls shot at their targets from behind, swerving to and fro in their black cycles and surfing through the empty, frosted lane. Bella Morte was in much frustration during the threatening chase. She could barely see a thing for the snow stung into her eyes due to the immense speed and the tires were slipping on the icy road. Sophias eyes were shut tight, squeezing Bella Morte from behind and praying quickly and privately as bullets zoomed past them. There was a loud BUMP! Then another! Sophia was screaming and she felt the tremendous force of

Chapter 9: Count Merry-Go-Round, the ostracized resident
"Where are we going, Zero?" Sophia asked that same night when Zero got home soaking wet and with a black eye. The second he got back home, he woke Sophia up from her nap and got her out the door, telling her to follow behind him as they speed-walked down the snowy lane. He gave her a red-striped winter jacket along the way. "What happened? A-are we in trouble?"
Zero wanted to say "yes" but he replied to her with an unworried smile, "Not at all, not at all. I-I just want you to meet someone who could help you out."
"You mean he could take me home?"
"There's a VERY small possibility but at least it's a possibility. Now a little faster, Sophia."
She increased her walking speed. She held on to Zero's cold arm to keep up; he also told her to stay very close to him. They walked past the other residents chatting with each other and playing around i

The moon tonight is brilliant, for it casts an eerie-looking shadow upon the moss and the stone. At times I find myself wondering, is that me that I see? Or is it merely another side of me, one that hides amongst the shade?
Ugh, that horrid moaning! That evil rattling, rasping noise! It's driving itself into my skull again, like an annoying repetition that I can't seem to quiet. It screeches at times, like nails upon a chalkboard. It buries itself deep into the recesses of my mind and fills the hole with rot! A fetid fungus spitting serpentine venom from the eyes of a fox!

"I still can't believe the human got to him, man," Kevi spoke as the Howler kids walked into a long, dark passageway heading to the Underesidence; the four kids decided to take a maze of alleyways to get there without being seen by the public. "Pretty nasty death for a pretty nasty guy. Y'know, I don't even think it's safe for us to be around here."
"Screw the Emcee," Drea responded. "I can't believe that a little girl could do something like that, even as a human being. The dude was clawed through entirely like a dog toy! I am gonna miss the free candy he randomly gave us, though," Drea responded, remembering a time when the Emcee happily told them to come over to his casino; he had candy. "Overall, we still gotta be respectful," she kept on speaking as they all paused together, watching as she pulled out a few cans of ale from the bag she wore on her back. She passed one to each

Never had Sophia been inside such a beautiful, complex building. Seriously, she was completely amazed by the grand abandoned theater filled with contraptions and simplified elevators and candle-lanterns hanging by chains from the towering glass ceiling, black with paint probably to seal off sighting from above. Sure, the tremendous theater was dark and almost broken down and obviously ancient, but it was still so enchanting to look at. It was as if being inside of a Swiss Family Robinson tree-house plus the booths and the stairs and the corridors and the many decorations taking over the place. Simply awesome the Chiaroscuro Theater was. Yet, for an abandoned building, there were a good many residents walking around and eyeing the group entering their sanctuary. They all held candles and looked just as freaky as the other citizens were out in the main city.

Through his watery blue eyes, tear-stained and red, he watched as the creature slurped the muscles from her bones. It was a terrible sight for the boy to behold, as the beast was unlike any other that he had ever seen. Its neck hung loose, as though broken badly and its face, though humanoid in appearance, was elongated like that of a canine.A Life in Flames2 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
The boy had heard it howling, much like a wolf before it attacked. His father had gone outside to check for the source of the noise and the boy did not see him die. His ears however, had heard everything and even now, he winced at the memory. The sound of his father's legs being torn, his screams of agony and rage as he swung a wood-cutter's axe at the creature. All of it, had been in vain.

Like a mask
They tell the stories
Of my past
Some are small
Some are deep
A little pain
Helps me sleep
Before you call me crazy
Try to understand
I was a young boy
With the mind of a man
Live happy lives
So instead i lived
surrounded by knives
I wear my scars
Like a tat
Run a blade
Through my fat
Try to stop me
If you can
I'm not a fan
I live a life
I dont condone
Everday my mind
And most of all, society
How can i trust the news
If all they do is lie to me
Pop culture on a
Global news channel
See, thats the shit
That I just cant handle
TV warps the truth
You only see what it shows
If you want to free your mind
You have to reap what you sow
I wear my scars
Like a fresh outfit
As I look around
Every girl I see is fit
Beauty's in the eye
OF the person in the mirror
Theres not a single day
That you should feel inferior
Life's a game
Everybody is a player
The world's a box of candy
Everybody has a flavor
Keep your head up

It was dastardly dark down in the abandoned subway station. The Dolls, soaking wet due to the storm up on the surface, scanned with their candle-lit rifles down the cold, must station. There was but a silent platform and the abandoned train itself, webby, rusty, and untouched. "Impossible," one of the officers muttered. One minute they are chasing their victims down a stormy lane, and the next they disappear into the underground subway. Their lord was not going to be pleased knowing that, but that didn't stop the Dolls from leaving.
"Are they gone?" Sophia's voice whispered shiveringly in the darkness of a rickety train cabin. Count Merry shushed her and gloomily walked over to the sliding doors of the cabin, poking his head out and carefully seeing down the long, abandoned hall.

You're the brightest star of them all.
See,darling,you're the most beautiful one,
But still,you chose to fall.
Your wings shattered,
And your soul went black,
Did you ever regret it,my dear?
You keep it silent,there's no way back.
You left heaven behind you,
Do you miss it? I know I do,
I miss the innocence and the glitter,
The sweetness of the clouds and the truth.
I miss my wings,
Yes,honey,I lost them too.
See,when you fell,
I jumped. I fell with you.
I just wish you'd take me in your embrace,
Hold me tight and never let me go
Your sinful lips on mine,
Send me the wind and I'll know.
I can feel you all over,
My body is sinful,my soul is almost gone
I know the taste of your scent,love,
And I know your body is still warm.
And one day,I just felt the known heat;
I felt your lips on my neck,your arms around me
I looked at the mirror,how fucking good we are together.
And in that darkness,I knew,you'll never leave.

But no. One look back and she sees not
