Three"I have to kiss her?!" An eleven-year-old Prosper exclaimed, staring at his best friend Owen. They were crouched behind the large slide in the playground, the bright red plastic affording them enough cover to constitute their very own hide out. Or so they figured, after chasing away a couple of girls who had been playing there previously.Three5 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
"Yep." Owen replied, his blue eyes serious as he spoke.
"Bu- c'mon, I mean, why would I-," Prosper couldn't seem to get the words out, but it was bad enough that they were even discussing kissing a girl in the first place.
"Chicken!" Owen accused, a grin lighting up his face, "You took the dare, so you gotta do it! You can't back out without being a right wuss!"
"I'll do somethin' else." Prosper said, desperately trying to dig himself out of the rather large hole he had fallen in.
"Nope, that's your dare," Owen said, "If you wanna be leader of this group with me you gotta go through with it, and show you're not a wimp."

Melinda is rushing around the house after hearing the news of her husband John's capture by the mysterious Cerveau. She goes into a drawer and pulls out and earpiece, pushes a button, and inserts it into her right ear. She runs upstairs to the spare bedroom and opens the closet.
"Tara, cancel the rally. I'm in a no-win situation. Even if I drop out of the race, John's still in danger and I'm not going to give that smug bastard the satisfaction that he had a hand in the outcome of this election."
She takes off her sweater and grabs the familiar blue garb hanging inside. She quickly disrobes and pulls on the skin-tight oufit.
"I've been in contact with John's superior and I found out the last time he contacted headquarters and where the next stop on his patrol was. He had to have been taken between those two points and I'd imagine he wasn't taken too far when he was abducted. They have officers combing the area

I miss the way you smiled
I miss the way that we joked
And I miss the way that we cried
You would tell me all these stories
That made my heart sing and twirl
You opened up my eyes
To a brighter and better world
Too many people miss you
I can guarantee I'm one of the most
We wish we could hear your voice again
Your smiles, your laughs and your jokes
And although I know you're in a better place
From away from this Hell
I really need you right now
I really need your help
I feel alone and lost
Scared and unpredictable
Everything seems to be going wrong
Everything is no longer beautiful
I need you to tell me it's alright
I need you to bring me your comfort
Your words always had a way of calming me
Your voice was always full of concern
And I know this is too much to ask for
Having you in my life was already such a blessing
But please, Grandmother of mine,
Keep me safe in your Guardian Wings. <3

I was lighting up my third cigarette when the woman with rainbow hair stormed out of the house zipping up her dress. My mind immediately jumped to conclusions. Was this guy a rapist? What the fuck? He followed looking a bit flustered.
Whatever I don’t want anything to do with this guy. Not to mention that the whole time he was inside with that girl I was thinking about my mother. How could I just leave her?! What’s wrong with me? I’m a failure of a daughter. How could I? The words were on repeat in my head. That little voice in my head flipped around, very bipolar. ‘how could you just leave her!?’ ‘don’t worry Rachel you had no choice.’ ‘you’re a coward and a fool’ ‘you should be ashamed’ ‘stop, you did the right thing.’
“Sorry I didn’t catch your name.” I jumped, I was so lost in my thoughts I hadn’t heard him come up behin

No Star. Chewy is a shortened version of Chewbacca,” Robin states, breaking the silence and restarting the argument between Cyborg and Beastboy.Courage2 years ago in General Fiction More Like This

Beastboy sat in the background. Every time he got the courage to tell Raven how he felt, she came back with another guy. Each one breaking her heart. He would sit there and let her cry in his shoulder. She didn't even notice, none the less care, that he was in love with her.
That's what drove Beatsboy to his depression. He would come out of his room less and less. All of his funny jokes dissapeared. He couldn't even look at Raven without feeling resentment or self-bitterness. Everything he did was on his own.
Raven, of course, noticed it from the start, "Hey Garfield, what gives? I haven't heard a corny joke in days."
"Guess I just haven't been in the joke telling mood."
"Do you want to talk?" Raven looked at him with her big, caring eyes. She wasn't completely made of stone. Placing her hand on his, she looked him in the eye, "You can tell me anything."
Beastboy felt a tear well up in his eye. He viciously wiped it away, "I'm ok, I promise."

Originally written December 2007
Inspired by events
The husband was not technically a suspect in his wife’s disappearance, but according to all the news reports, blogs, words on the street and water cooler talk, it seemed that he was all but sent to jail for the crime. She had vanished one sunny morning while she went to run in the forest preserves near their suburban home, something she had done for years. After 10 years of marriage, her husband claimed that she was tired of everything and ran off with another man. Why would she leave her kids and the rest of her family behind, in the dark? people wondered. He had no answer for them, and merely repeated that she had ran off. Numerous searches of the neighborhood, the forest preserve, where she worked, all proved fruitless.
All of the major news outlets covered the story, even garnering some national coverage and time in the spotlight in some national magazines and talk shows. Multiple on-camera intervie

Rain is a peculiar thing - and so are you.
As the ground becomes a panoramic sponge and the world becomes a shallow sea, you shower in baking powder, only to have it wash away and leave streaks upon your face. this is a losing battle with Mother Nature; she knows your game-plan. She may wear spectacles with lenses miles thick; but she can see you with perfect precision and pluck you from the cloud you have not-so-gracefully fought to reach.
Your sling-backs do not provide much traction upon that cloud, do they? Water vapor is harder to walk on every day; surely one day you will ge tthe hang of it and show your superiority. But be careful. Your face is still running - running away.
Your prison is a white-collar resort, where guards and convicts drink Mai-Tais and show faux pity for the poor boy with no pants. His feet are scabbed over and his hair is nappy and matted; yet his smile can power a small country. This is freedom.

Though you're older and quite bigger in size
I want to remind you the sands of time flow
Quickly through that hour glass as you go
On living a life that leads nowhere

This character sheet will be done in a Rival Schools style. Her party-up method will reflect her federation, not a school.
I envision her as a lightning bruiser who is the fifth highest attack, speed, and stamina in a Rival schools roster that adds Sakura, Karin, R. Mika, Maki, Ibuki, Sean, Dan and Makoto. What that means against Slam Masters and World Warriors and street gangs is unclear. Due to her extensive power, she has no range outside of hurling herself at varying speeds (most of them fast). So reachers/teleport/fireball spammers will be the bane of her in combat.
Her teamup technique will be called “Blood Burning Pep Rebound,” and it shall do the following: bring the burning vigor meter full 80%, and undo any diminishes done by taunting, while increasing all stats by a total of three taunts.
