Costume Shop Story - Part 1If I had to call it anything, it would have to be quaint. The town was small, a little suburb of the big city, surrounded on most sides by scrub and farm-land. I had moved here a few months before because the city (much as I loved it) wasn't good for me. It was expensive and noisy, and the pay wasn't covering my expenses.Costume Shop Story - Part 16 years ago in Fantasy More Like This
To help pay bills, I had registered for a website where people posted free-lance work they needed done, and one job had been in the quaint little town. After a while I was looking for jobs out here, I liked it, something appealed to me.
About the fifth or sixth job, someone finally asked if I was looking for work. I said I'd be interested, and found myself supporting several town businesses. It paid the rent (which was cheap out here) and kept me comfortable, but for one thing.
See, I have always enjoyed driving, and this far from the city, with its lights, you could really see the stars.

But, I smile for you.
I'm keening in pain, my depression unchained,
But, I laugh for you.
My skin breaks, I bleed, the ache an anchor,
But, I hide it for you.
You want me to be like I was, before, back then,
So, I wear masks for you.
The days hurt, the nights worse,
But, I keep going for you.
You tell me to live every day to it's fullest.
I live for the day when you can let me go.
Tonight, Tonight, TonightI had lived for nearly seven years of my life in Maywood. But when I was in second grade, I ended up having to move with my father when his company transferred him out to California. All my friends in school hated to see me go. They loved how I made learning fun, especially books and history, because I would act things out at the teacher's request.Tonight, Tonight, Tonight3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
The person who hated to see me go the most was a girl named Marie Bard. She was a pretty girl with long, black hair and a fair face. But she was tomboyish and would fight and play sports with the rest of the guys. Nobody seemed to care. We were all too young to care anyways.
Either way, she hated to see me go because she was always the one up playing with me and acting out scenes from history. She loved playing generals and presidents. Her favorite was Tom Jefferson and would even jut out her lips when she signed the Declaration in a little skit we had. She cried on my last day, but sucked it up and waved goodbye.

That shine in innocence.
To bring letters together,
I cannot create the words people seek.
Are you proud of me still?
How my fingers create the woven threads of magical letters,
Why still I turn to much greater, much more faithful lyrics.
Paper and pencils,
Typing digital versions of my imagination.
I hate how I can never
Create such beautiful words.

As I sit here on the sofa, my fingers typing steadily the keys of my laptop, I slowly but surely begin weaving and piecing together a story that I had long since meant to write: a story of love and comfort, peace, and overall contentment; a story of togetherness, trust and the strong bonds of affectionate love; a story of worlds; a story of us.Foxform--Prologue4 years ago in Fantasy More Like This

If I were given the same choice that had changed my life for good... I'd have to turn it down. I've grown too used to my new life to consider taking it back. The people who once made my life hell have paid their price and the benefits of my new life outweigh my old life.
I can finally say that I am happy for the first time in my life. Not only that, but I am with people that actually understand me and don't mind talking about their past lives – as if it could ever harm them now.
I also don't mind sharing my story. It reeked of injustice and unfairness, but I'm not bothered by telling it anymore. I seem to get a warm and furry feeling whenever I think about that one day that everything turned upside down...
I absolutely hated going to school nowadays. I was a freshman in high school, and like most freshmen, I had to deal with the constant onslaught of bullies. I was teased whenever the opportunity presented itself to them, tattled on because they

Love and HeartbreakLove is when you can't stop thinking about them,Love and Heartbreak8 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
when you hear their voice inside your head.
You can tell it's them just by their scent.
When you want a picture of just the two of you,
so they can always "be with you".
Love is when you call them
just to talk about anything; just to hear their voice.
When you worry about them if something happens,
when they cheer you up by giving you a hug
or just staying by your side.
Love is being able to read their eyes.
You can see when they're happy,
and help them when they're sad.
When you don't need to talk to each other,
because your eyes talk for the two of you.
Heartbreak is when you cry
because you can't stop thinking about them.
When you wish you had a picture
just to be able to say "that was us..."
Heartbreak is when you miss their phone calls
and their warm random hugs.
When both know you miss the other
Just because of the pain in your eyes.
Love is having, heartbreak is missing.

"Wow it's nice to see that somebody decided to greet us, names Connor what's yours?" the male said, to Sparkz Connor looked like a nice guy, minus the Disturbed shirt.

"Zero?" You began to lose your voice from the fear.
With no response, Zero brought his face closer to your neck. Soon his eyes glowed with a blood lust color. The tattoo on his neck began to grow brighter with the scarlet red. He released your trapped hand and titled your head to the side. Your eyes got bigger as you heard his husky breath against your neck.

Life is nothing but a dream,

We're alone while we dream,

That soft sleep is only important
To the sleeper.
Whether it's a good dream or nightmare,
We are alone within our minds.
But what we don't realize is
That life is the dream,
And we can't wake up.
We've seen what we dream,
But that's the real world, elusive.
We've caught a glimpse, and it has
Opened our eyes to our true lives.

Waking from a nightmare brings
Such sweet satisfaction.

Jaden was running out of ideas. He was running low on healing items. Even food was low. His weapon was wearing down, and about to be split in too, and he faced a troll as an enemy, a troll that must have been twice as powerful as he was. He dodged to the side, and cast a quick fire spell, basic, but good in a pinch. Back on his feet, he struck as quickly as he could, almost managing to hit the large creature, who was surprisingly agile. He now regretted coming on this quest alone. Others had offered to come with him, but his rejection of them might lead to his downfall, unless the elf could think of something quickly.
He prepared his most powerful spell, he would cast it, and then attack with everything he had before retreating, and acquiring better position, but as the magic built up inside him, he was struck from behind by another troll. Goddamit! I need to do some level gr

My ex-boyfriend was a wizard, inspired by England, and he was horrible at it. He first turned me into a cat and I stayed like that for about a month. He said he could fix me and then I turned into what I was.
I love it but I hated it at the same time. I hated it more though because of how much I hid it. I’ve hidden this for about a hundred years now. Mostly wearing hats and long dresses around the other countries. It got closer on several occasions, like they would see my tail wag or my hat almost went off but it never happened.
But with modern clothing it was easier to hide. Of course to regulation I had to wear a military outfit but I would wear pants and a beanie hat. It wasn’t against regulation and no one had a problem with that. In fact France would pick cuter ones out for me and would give them to me
