Suicide Note I grabbed a sheet of paper and a pen. Tears ran down my face as I quickly scrawled a message to my friends. I had six. They were the only things that had kept me going for so long. After I was finished writing, I put the piece of paper into an envelope and wrote their names on the front. Underneath their names, I wrote not to open the box until the letter had been read. Then I put the small velvet box next to the envelope and put them on the corner of my desk. They were the only things there, they would get noticed instantly.Suicide Note3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
I snuck into my parents bedroom. Neither of them were home, so no one would notice. But I was careful anyway, taking the gun out of my Dad's sock drawer. I went back to my room, made sure it was loaded, and sat down on my bed. A million things ran through my mind, and more tears came to my eyes.

If this were a masquerade,
You might make a little more sense.
If you would follow my lead,
We'd dance under the chandelier.
And on the chance
The light fills your eyes,
Their radiance will engulf the world as well.
If I spun you around,
You'd laugh, stumbling back into step
What are the odds?
At a masquerade ball,
Trading graces; trading faces
And I worry sometimes
If the band stopped playing
Would you be locked in an endless waltz?
If I were to leave and the lights go out,
And you danced on into death
I'd hope you never catch yourself dancing alone.

Just when things finally start to click
And you find yourself content
In your perfect world
Almost as if you were dreaming
Something has to crash through the walls
And rip apart your dream
I wanted to make you believe in forever
I wanted to show you that maybe
I could be the one
To make you believe in happy endings
I hope I still can
I don't think I can handle
Going through all this again
I can't lose you like I did before
I just want to escape the past
But I can't seem to shake its grasp
I just want to be free
Free to spend the rest of my life
With the one I love
I want to spend it with you
I know I can't promise you everything
But I know deep in your heart
You believe that we can last forever
Even if your brain doesn't believe it
I'll make it believe
That I can promise you
You're the best thing to ever happen to me
I've never been happier when I'm with you
I want you to see that you are
The most amazing girl I have ever known

Green EyesHer skin white as snowGreen Eyes4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Ice cold to the touch
Lids are shut
Green eyes never to be seen again
Light showers upon her lifeless face
Through the open casket
The women's tears form
Small puddles on the floor
A young man sits in
The second row next to the aisle
He's not listening to the man
In front holding the Bible
Words lost somewhere in the air
He just sits there
His head tilted down
Staring into empty hands
Trying so hard to remember
How her hand felt in his
Trying to remember the softness
Of fingers entwined perfectly
The man with the Bible finishes
Everyone starts to leave
The men comforting the women
The young man is shocked
Back to life by the sudden movement
He stands up and walks out
The door with the rest
The walk to the cemetery is short
The weather is perfect with blue skies
The kind of day she loved
"How can the sun shine when she's gone?"
The young man thinks to himself
Everyone arrives at the cemetery
Her casket lies in front
Of a hole freshly dug
The man with the Bible

He closed his eyes, purring at the wonderful taste of the frightened human girl. It had been far too long since he caught one of the tasty little morsels. He felt the girl curl up in fear, shaking slightly. He was all too familiar with various human fear reactions, but he hadn’t paid much attention to that before. But now was different...As much as he loved the taste, and as hungry as he was, he knew he couldn’t. Not after all she did, not after 3 weeks of taking care of him, helping him recover and escape.
He went still, no longer moving her around as he tasted her. He heard her faint words as she managed to speak again, “Please... Please don’t hurt me...” He sighed softly, closing his eyes a moment and nodded. He spoke, keeping his tone soft so the volume of his voice wouldn’t bother her too much, “Shh, little one. I won’t.

"Holy..." Jacklyn breathed, gazing at the sight before her. "And I thought the fountain was impressive."
Presently, she sat in Wyatt's hand, in a room similar to the one the fountain was in. This one, however, was empty except for a crackling orb of light floating at the level of Wyatt's shoulders.
"Just... how many of these things do you have in this place?" she asked, her eyes fixated on the orb.
He chuckled. "A few. It takes a lot of magic to keep clouds solid enough to build a castle on. Not to mention taking care of everything else we need up here. This one was meant as a fail-safe, if we needed to return to the surface for whatever reason. We used it to try to find more beans, but... That didn't happen, as you might've guessed." He noticed her staring up at him, her brow creased in sympathy. "Anyway," he said, clearing his throat. "We'll both need to have our hands on the orb for this to work. I'll activate it, and you focus on your farm."

She combed tense, trembling fingers through her tangled hair and let out a distressed sigh.

She was sure of it.
Her body was suddenly nudged gently through the fabric of the shirt. "Are you holding up adequately?" The giant's voice above was flat, void of any true concern and it made Erin shiver even more.
She pressed her hands along the cloth barrier and roughly pushed his enormous finger back; to her surprise, he permitted her unruliness and retracted slowly. "Why the hell do you care?" She growled up at him and repeatedly punched his wal

It was nothing short of amazing watching Jace move slabs of rock, which seemed twenty feet high to the girls, into a makeshift bathing room near the water's edge. He made it look effortless, and although it was meant to be a nice gesture, it was also intimidating. The girls cringed in unison as he clapped the dirt off of his hands after he finished creating the simple structure.
"It is all done! Not trying to be rude, but you two look like you could really use a good bath." Jace chuckled as he referenced their grimy appearance.
"Yeah, well, a couple rough days in the desert will do that to you." Maia grumbled.
"What were you doing there, tied to that post and stuff, anyway?"

We were deep in the mountains somewhere in Colorado I was visiting a friend of mine, would she wonder where I was?

Wyatt lay in his bed, watching Jacklyn sleep. The adrenaline had faded and he now felt the exhaustion of the climb and his fading illness. Yet sleep did not come easily to him. Jacklyn's injuries, fortunately, were not as severe as he had feared. He was fairly well-versed in first aid, one of the many things his parents had taught him. After all, there had not been a practicing medic of his species in decades. Though he had never expected to use that knowledge to aid anyone but himself.
It seemed that two of Jacklyn's ribs had been cracked, though thankfully not fully broken. Breathing would be painful for several weeks, and she would be bedridden for much of that too. But she would live. She would recover and be as healthy and active as she ever was.
Yet five words still echoed in Wyatt's mind. "It could have been worse." A phrase that was supposed to give comfort in times like this now had the opposite effect. He could have killed her. As long as she was near him, s

“I came to speak to you about this,” said Datee as she studied the incomplete amulet in her hand. “This doesn’t look like the design you showed me.”
“I-I know...” said Ruyak hesitantly. He forced himself to turn towards his mother and assemble a less suspicious expression.
Datee’s brown eyes were skeptical as she looked sideways at her son. Her delicate, round ears turned to point into every corner of the room, and Ruyak swallowed nervously.

Back at the shelter they kept telling me not to mess this up,” she said softly, almost embarrassed to be telling him. “They said that lots of good things could start happening at the shelter if you liked me and said good things about me. They said to not argue with you and not to be rude because you were used to people agreeing with you…”
"I guess they wouldn't know how irritating constant agreement can be," he said under his breath.
“They also mentioned that you were a little offbeat…” she trailed off, “but I suppose most rich people are. Still though…you’re really not what I was expecting.”

Sometimes, she really hated being short and having small strides...
