„BOO!“ Kuroo slammed your door open and jumped into your room, ending the whole show with a triumphant pose where his hands were put on his hips and his legs formed a triangle with the floor. He had a long, black cape hanging down his shoulders and the fake teeth in his mouth looked like they were about to fall out.
„What the hell are you supposed to be?“ You asked while laughing at the idiotic look of your boyfriend. The laughing changed quick into coughing, followed by several sneezes. „Uhh, I hate being sick.“ You sat up on your bed and took some tissues to blow your nose. The trash bin next to your bed was already half full of tissues which carried the bacteria of your flu. Kuroo came towards you with big steps, looking all fabulous with his cape and the fake teeth.
„I hem a wempayr.“ He said while his saliva spreader out everywhere around his mouth. Disgusted by that view you offered him some clean tissues. „Take the stupid pla

"(__f/n__), can I come in? I need to come in! I gotta go to the bathroom!"
"Hold it, Alfred! I'm taking a shower!" You hollered from inside the bathroom. Somehow, Alfred always seemed to catch you in the most awkward places, and today he just happened to find you in the only place you found peace.
"But (__f/n__) ~, I gotta peeee " He whined cutely, crossing his legs.
You sighed from inside the bathroom, "Fine, the doors already open, but no looking!" Alfred barged through the door and looked your way, "Don't worry! I promise I won't"
"ALFRED! I SAID DON'T LOOK!" You threw a bar of soap at him, which he dodged like a boss.
"Whoa, whoa! Okay, chill!" He said averting his eyes away with a nervous laugh. You were still sceptical to if he really needed to go to the bathroom or not. You were proven right when you watched his shadow on the curtain move closer and closer to the shower.

Five minutes after getting the assignment.
I’m not that girl,

By letting the teacher compare everyone’s to hers.

And everything is going perfectly for her.
That’s not me.

That will smile at you to cheer you up then goes and hides,
In the bathroom so you don’t see my tears.

On her high score she didn't even study for.

But the lesson on probability.

that envelops me
crushing and choking me
beneath my own ambiguity
I haven't the heart
to hold to the utter

and it fears its own inability
to encompass such disgusting purity.
I want you
more than I'm willing to understand
and more than I'm willing to accept

with such horrifying allure
that I can't help but approach
the cliff which I'm sure
will be my downfall
however perhaps if I gained you
in the fall
I might not mind.

"You there! Bring me that book!" Commander Zoë called out. Several Scouts were sitting at the table, all talking amongst themselves. A few glanced up as I rushed over with the book Commander Zoë had indicated.
"This one?" I asked quietly, holding it in front of me. Commander Zoe snatched it from my hands, laughing, "Haha! You're just like a little puppy, aren't you? Levi!" Commander Zoë called to a dark haired Scout sitting several seats down, "Isn't this one like a puppy? An obedient puppy!" The one called Levi simply rolled his eyes, continuing to sip at the tea in his hand.
Hanji scanned me precariously for a "What if I kept this one, eh, Levi?" A muttered response came across the table, "Yeah, right." Another Scout laughed boisterously, "You're gonna get killed anyway, the way you are with those titans! You think you need a servant?" Ignoring the Scout

UnacceptableDearest brother has been acting strange since mother Princess’s last visit. I am not sure what to think of this. We’ve always done things together but he spends a great deal of time in the dungeons, staring at the reconditioning chamber. There’s no one to recondition; we’re all lemons and therefore perfectly acceptable. Normally, I can tell what he’s thinking because it’s always been what I’m thinking. But not recently. I find this unacceptable. Mother Princess made me to be his friend and brother. We’re exactly alike.

You complained as the music blasted all over the house, which made you feel distasteful. Because Gilbert is the DJ and he doesn't bother to take notice to anybody who requested him for a different artist. More likely, he was picky towards music artists.
So, you marched towards the bar instead and took a seat for a peace's moment. You raised your hand to order a glass of Guinness beer. You sighed as the music had already deafened you as it can be heard from miles away. You took a sip of beer. But suddenly, you heard loud footsteps, coming from behind you. The person took a seat next to you and ordered for a pint of Oettinger. You glanced to take a pinch of the mysterious man.
