Dick shot up in bed with a strangled gasp, the sheets tangled about him like tentacles waiting to squeeze for the kill. He panted wildly and tried to regain some semblance of peace and order, some grasp of where he actually was. Slowly the oversized, monolithic room came into focus and his pants of fear turned to heavy sighs of longing. This was no mere room – it was practically an apartment. All manner of expensive toys, computers and other trinkets filled the grand space. There was even a small sofa and entertainment center off to a corner with every game console known (or not known) to man waiting to be played. He'd not touched any of it since moving in to Wayne manor.
The nightmares continued no matter where he slept, how much or little or how often. The same horrible vision played out in his mind like a video on replay, each screen capturing the terrified faces of his parents as they

Fumes escaping from his nose, the sides of his lips.
Eyes on hers, watching how her lips wrap around the small burning stick. Only she could look so pretty when smoking but he looks sleepless almost exhausted.
A few more puffs and he throws the stick away the last ghost of fumes escaping his scarred lips like a hush. Placing his elbows on his knees he leans forward watching her closely, legs straight, her head against his knee and how the smoke continues to come out her perfect lips. Fingers that have seen better days run through her golden waves, moving locks away from her face and just soothing the wild ones away.
Blue eyes close and lean into the touch and he can't help but wonder how something so simple as sharing a cigarette with her could be so relaxing, how running his fingers through her yellow locks could make him feel a sense of peace that seemed to unreal to him.
"What's on your mind?" Her tender voice speaks as more fumes escape he

With eyes like glowing coal
To lure my victims from their beds
Like unsuspecting foal.
I wish I were a monster
With claws on every hand
To capture their attention
And draw to my command.
I wish I were a monster
With fire in my jaw
To burn the city to the ground
While they just watch in awe.
I wish I were a monster
With blue and shaggy hair
To save me from their lame attacks
And copters in the air.
I wish I were a monster
With wings to fly me home
So I can leave that monsters skin
And be back inside my own.

The sandstorm on Route 4 whipped across my face, tangling my hair and stinging my eyes. Touko had finally had her gym battle with Burgh and won, and he'd told us that we should probably head to Nimbasa City next.
I tucked my hat down further over my head and raised my arm to protect myself, sand flicking off my makeshift shield in every direction. "Are you sure this is the right way?" I yelled to Touko over the howling wind. "How can you even see where we're going?"
"Woman's intuition!" She yelled back, grabbing my wrist. "Stay close to me, I'd hate to get separated in a storm like this!"
Even with the sand making my face tingle, I could tell that I'd begun to blush. And although Touko wasn't looking at me, I felt the need to cover my flushed cheeks. "R-right!"
We walked along the barely visible path for a long time, struggling to see anything around us that was more than a meter away. My fingers twi

“Why must you always be in the way!” Two separate pairs of voices yelled, they looked down upon two very different children, as different as night and day yet both were victims. And both were alone. Bright blue eyes glared out from beneath dark curls fiery and defiant; dark blue looked down and to the side resigned and defeated, wheat blonde hair just long enough to hide watery eyes.
The prim and starched clothes were suffocating, buttoned all the way up to tighten around his throat. Everything perfectly tailored to fit all the way down to his socks. When he was older he’d keep them undone, he’d never feel like this again, the tie around his neck a noose, the buttons his shackles.
The shirt slipped off his shoulder again, way too big. The fact that is was his sisters old clothes didn’t help, even if they were for boys in the first place. Trousers bagged to the point that if he wasn’t careful they’d tumble around his ankles. The folded up cuffs
Monster 38I woke up in the morning, curled around a mass of extremely soft and warm fur. I smiled a bit, burying my face deeper into the the fur. I was content and happy for the first time in days and I was in no rush to get out of bed. Beneath my arm, the furry body began to stir, the fur shrinking to be replaced by soft skin and the body reshaping to the man I had fallen asleep with the night before. I kissed up his spine, earning myself a satisfied moan.Monster 386 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
"You must be feeling better this morning," he murmured as he rolled over and pulled me into his chest. I smiled happily, kissing again over his chest, moving up his throat as I made my way to his lips. He captured my lips in a lazy slow kiss, to which I returned without hesitation. "I'm still not sure that these happy to see you mornings are quite you though," he whispered as he finally broke the kiss for air.
"Only with you," I replied, nuzzling closer to him. He hummed deeply in thought, his fingers staying either above or below the mass of

He crept towards me like a lion stalking its prey. Heat flashed in his eyes, and a smirk crawled across his face.
I took the time to admire his sculpted physique as he kept approaching me, still undecided on the matter of letting him have merry little way with me, or knocking him the fuck out.
'I gotta admit though,' I thought warily, my eyes stuck on him, 'The man's not making this easy,'
I didn't notice his close proximity until he leaped onto the bed and moved even closer. I could feel his warm skin, fresh out of the shower, on my bare legs and thighs.
He never broke his gaze, even when he trailed his fingers up my thighs to the hem of my skirt, slowly

I sighed for the billionth time that day, as I sat in the vast, amazingly chic and comfortable kitchen with my best friend Roxanne, in the process of eating the delicious sandwiches she prepared for us. She, like myself has been confined to Bruce's mansion for the past three days.
It was still hard to believe that three days had passed since the Joker's escape from Arkham. It feels like the whole city is holding their breath, waiting for a car to explode, or the mayor to be kidnapped, or someone important to die. Paranoia raced all across town when news got out about the Joker's escape.
Not to say that such a thing wasn't practically anticipated, seeing as how this wasn't the first time he's escaped from captivity . . . or the second time.
Roxanne and I found out quickly though, that being stuck in Bruce's not-so-humble abode wasn't too much of a sacrifice on our parts. After the first hour here, we'd been relaxing in

He crawled deeper until he stood before a narrow ventilation, from it the smell of the Lupains and Ari seemed to come.
Akira opened the shaft and squeezed himself into it. The smell of Lupains and laboratory grew even stronger.
He fell several meters deep as he was not looking.
He had not noticed that it went down steeply.
Akira hoped that no one heard it, but he was wrong. Several steps came toward him.
Akira wanted to turn back in order to wait until the soldiers were gone, but the way back was too steep. He could not go back.
He stuck his head out of the shaft to check if cameras or other soldiers could see him, but it was all empty.
Since it was secure and the steps came closer, he stormed out of the shaft, quickly but quietly.
But he collided with a soldier. Both fell to the ground.

Irritated by his lack of concern (was no one safe in this damned facility?), Babydoll made herself go limp so that Skinny had to do most of the work in dragging her to the rec room.
