The rusty coat of the she-wolf moved like a blur across the bridge that spanned the city river. The various colored lights of the city flew past her as she traveled again on her nightly trip into the darkened heart of one of the city's drearier vicinities. It was the City of Despair and she brought her normally cheerful self to run the city's streets on a regular basis to meet with an old friend that had been through hardships the she-wolf was unable to comprehend. Still, she felt it was up to her to aid her old friend in some way. Thoughts of his fallen state had been filling her mind more often recently and brought a cloud of despair over her own life. It was because of this new stress that her usual free moving gallop on her journey through the city had changed to a stiff and hurried run. She took mental note of this change as she neared her destination and questioned herself if, perhaps she was getting too involved in affairs that shouldn't be her concern. Before she could think an

“Hey Pluto! You want to dance boy?” He looked at you and threw his arms around you, licking your face and whining happily. You grinned, pushing his face away from yours and leading him onto the floor. You took his hand and placed it on your waist. He was a slight bit taller that you. He blinked innocently as you as you took his other hand and put a hand on his shoulder. The music began, and couples began to swirl except for you and the demon-hound.
“You move like this, follow my lead now,” You stepped your right foot back. He looked down and stepped forward with his left. “Now to the side,” you stepped to your left and he copied you. “Now you go back,” you stepped forward with your left foot and his right went back. “And to the other side.” You stepped to the right.

The rusty, red wolf galloped through the city streets easily. She knew the way well for she had traveled this same path nearly every night. Her limbs moved easily and freely beneath her. Running was one of her favorite things. It was such an enjoyment for her that even the dreary hopelessness of the night's journey couldn't bring her down so long as she was in motion. She followed the familiar streets until she came to an old tavern. She slipped in the back, careful to avoid any people. Once in, she vaulted onto a high shelf and slipped into a dark hole in the wall above the shelf. A set of cheaply carpeted stairs rose in front of her. Without a break in movement, she leapt up the stairs, three, sometimes four at a time. The old stairs weren't very many to begin with and she was at the top within seconds. Here she hesitated outside an old door. The whole p

You were very thankful, however, that you didn't catch a cold for sleeping in the hallway such as that. Your voice was coming back and it sounded unfamiliar since you hadn't used it for a long time, so you tried not to speak when it wasn't necessary.You Saved Me CielxReader Chapter 33 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
The next morning, you rose to the sound of birds chirping and the sun beating down on your skin. You flinched at first when opening your eyes, but relaxed and quickly basked in the warmth. The sun. How many years had it been since you'd seen it? A long time was for sure.
Thinking of that made your mind drift to other thoughts. How was your mother doing? Was she still alive? You could bet that she didn't think you were still alive. Though, if it were possible, you'd love to see her again.
Once you were fully awake, you rolled out of bed and put on a random dress from the nearby closet. It wasn't anything fancy, a simple red dress with white lace. You turned, closed th

Girl with eyes deep and sad
The one with a dragon inside
Please try not to make it mad
Anyone can see her pain
The dark eyes of sleepless nights
Feel the red and black marks
Of her night-time frights
No one sees past the "slut"
That she cuts to hide
Locks up her real beauty
Beauty that wells up inside
Everyone knows her father
That drunk and angry fool
And a whore-around mother
Noting but a tool
Anyone can see the tears
The cuts in her soft skin
Filling her heart with boyfriends
Knowing she'll never win
I can see the scars
Steal her away to family
To a home where she is free

Slowly you averted your eyes from the screen and looked around the huge room. You were standing at the end of the row on the Major's left. Right next to Zorin who watched the screen with great fascination and curiosity.
Your eyes glided past the vampire and the Captain towards the Major, who held that creepy smile plastered on his face. On the Major's right stood the Doctor with a box in his hand and he slowly opened it.
"Stop." The Major raised his hand.
"The girl completed her mission. Completely. Perfectly." He paused for a moment. "I shall not have her burned."
The doctor almost seemed horrified as he slowly reclosed his box and muttered something.

You Saved Me. Ciel x Reader. 2You were taken to get a bath by a red haired maid that Ciel referred to as Mey-Rin. She was as clumsy maid, but you didn't give her much thought as you followed her to the washroom. You to busy thinking about the events of tonight. The rain that pattered down on the ceiling seemed to lull together with your thoughts. You couldn't tell what you were feeling, it was a new and awkward emotion. You were so use to feelings numb and empty that now, you didn't know what to do.You Saved Me. Ciel x Reader. 23 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Once you reached the washroom you sat in a nearby chair as the maid filled the nearby tub up with bathwater. "Would you like me to wash your back?" She asked you with a smile on her face, adjusting her glasses. You shook your head. She gave a nod and handed you a washcloth, then left the room.
Walking past the nearby sink, you noticed a mirror, and turned to it. What a sigh you were... Your hair wasn't horribly unkempt, but it wasn't tidy neither. Your eyes were different colors, one your natural (e/c) and the other was

You didn't mean to sound ungrateful but what was your purpose here? It didn't make much sense. You were, basically, useless.
You pulled your knees into you chest. Did Ciel think of you as useless? For some reason the thought bothered you. You weren't exactly sure why, but it did. Since when did you develop a thought process to care what others think. Well it wasn't others, more just Ciel specifically. But why?
Groaning, you trudged out of your room and down into the grand hallway where the main entrance was. As you walked, you peaked out of one of the windows and was surprised to see a carriage parked in front of the manner. Curiosity got the best of you and you tip-toed quickly to the entrance. When you arrived Ciel was dressed up in fancier clothes than usual and you f

Washed away with our belongings
It's all gone
Everything is, my child
It left nothing for us
We are truly alone.
Leave our home, we said
It did not listen
Our spirits are strong enough
People together can get through this
We prayed through it's shrieks
We thought it would work
Those people are dead
Heaps of decaying dreams
Left to rot on the pavement
Is all that is left of their existence
Embrace reality, child
Know that life is cruel
Accept it, you cannot change it
Vermillion splattered across our lands
Served as our sacrifice
For what, my child, I do not know
I was not prepared for this,
We were armed with knowing
It lied to us
Cold and naked in reality, child
It was our own special fantasy
We took life for granted
The most beautiful lie is our Earth, after all
Know that as a fact, my child
Now that is broke

Sometimes, I think that dashed yellow line is the only thing that keeps me moving the right way. That keeps me going. Because one wrong move could send me barreling off the highway and the freefall feeling that would come next is not something I'm unfamiliar with. It's the same thing that happens every time I think of you. I can't get over how much this place reminds me of you. I can't get over how little room there is between full-fledged fear and being in love.
Sometimes, I think maybe they're the same thing.
I don't know what keeps bringing me back here. But I find myself coming here more and more when I can't sleep. When I can't stop thinking about you. I drive the same familiar routes. Thinking the same familiar thoughts. Going to the same familiar places. I keep retracing the paths we used to take, thinking that if I follow them back far enough, I'll figure out where we went wrong. The absence of you is familiar. Almost comforting.

You Saved Me. Ciel x Reader. 1You were sitting in darkness, your knees pulled into your chest and your arms wrapped loosely around them. Just like everyday. On occasion, the men in the white coats would come and blindfold you. They'd take you to a bright room and start poking around your body with sharp objects you couldn't see. When they first started to experiment on you, you screamed loudly, crying bloody murder. But now, there was just an unpleasant grunt or two. No benefit would come from you screaming. They'd just cram something into your mouth and you'd be stuck like that until they were finished.You Saved Me. Ciel x Reader. 14 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

I haven't figured out what order I should put the words in to make it read just right. I do, however, know what it feels like, but pushing around nouns and adjectives just to make it grow is the hardest thing I'll ever do. And it's true that I've tried it before and maybe I succeeded once, but since then I've learned the way real love washes through veins, and rumbles through the shifting and settling of bones until it changes you completely in a way that is absolutely unyielding.

Scarlet River P1 The moon was a sliver in the sky, only dimly shining in a wintry night. Darkness clung to the snow-covered forest below. Deep shadows lay beneath the bare, black branches of a large forest. Through thick swathes of snow a kitten struggled forward. Her head barely cleared the surface of the white substance and she shivered in the cold, chilled to the bone. Her brown silver-striped coat was plastered to her sides, revealing a jutting ribcage. She had been running for many suns and moons now, clumsily teaching herself to hunt along the way, relying on instinct, and a darker resource...one that the kit tried hard to ignore.Scarlet River P11 year ago in General Fiction More Like This
She had long since lost her brothers and sister, and had been forced to run away alone, or risk sharing their fate. She would have chosen the latter, but she had made a promise, and this was what drove her forward.
