Roasted and ToastedBrittany reached into her bag and pulled out another chocolate as she and her sister walked toward the factory. This was going to be a good day; shed talked her little sister Paige into coming to the Choconu plant for a tour, and there would almost certainly be free samples at the end. Paige might not even want hers or so Brittany hoped.Roasted and Toasted5 years ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
The two of them looked mostly alike, with blonde hair and green eyes, but everyone told Paige she had an exceptional smile. It helped that Paige smiled so much to begin with it seemed like she was always happy about something. Brittany on the other hand was a little chunky thanks to her sweet tooth, and spent a little more time trying to deflect verbal assaults, while Paige shrugged any off with ease.
Thanks for coming, sis, Brittany said as they walked toward the entrance. It wouldnt have been any fun by myself.
I wasnt too busy, Paige smiled. What time do the tours start again?

Conrad looked over at her. If he hadnt known what a pain in the butt she was, hed probably think she was pretty good-looking. She had dark skin, a thin waist, gentle facial features, and her eyes always seemed to be in slow motion. Bored? he repeated. Anythings better than that last job.

Inner Strength- part 1
Okay, most of you know the characters of the story, but for the other characters, I'll tell you about them.
So the story goes, Ash, May, Brock, Max, and Pikachu are walking along the trail to the nearest city... Which is for some reason, is taking a long, long, long, long time.
"Boy, wonder why it's taking so long just to get to a one mile away city," said Ash.
"Maybe we went the wrong way?" said Brock.
"Hey! Maybe that's it!" shouted May.
It was a city, but it was a very odd city. There where some people, but they all just stood there, smiling, and the houses were all the same color. In fact, all the people had the same clothes, hair dew, and it even looked like they had the same smile! As Ash and the others walked closer to the town, they noticed that everyone was looking at them, weirdly.
"They look like people," said Max.
"I think they're breathing," said Ash.
"But why are they staring at us?" said May.
"Pikachu," said Pikachu on top of Ash's shoulder.

The Magic Show - unfinishedThe magician and his assistant rolled out a large glass box, which was filled with water. The top of the box was sealed with a very obvious padlock. As the assistant locked the wheels of the box in place, the magician walked to the front of the stage. He rolled up his sleeves, showed his hands were empty, and with a gesture made a large red sheet appear between his hands.The Magic Show - unfinished6 years ago in Fantasy More Like This
As the audience applauded, he smiled. Wow, if you thought that was impressive, you're really going to love the rest of the show!
The magician walked to the glass box as the audience laughed, and he and his assistant draped the sheet over the box. They waited a moment, and then the magician called out, Ladies and Gentlemen...our first guest of the evening...Jessica Alba!
The magician pulled the sheet off with a flourish, revealing not an empty tank of water, but a tank of water containing a swimming Jessica Alba, wearing a powder blue swimsuit and waving to the crowd.

Instantly, Janet froze. Who the heck would be here at midnight? Instinctively, she reached for her drink again. She wasnt a very big girl, but it was in a glass bottle; maybe she could surprise him with it if he tried to break in. Janet took a look through a peephole and was surprised to see a concerned-looking woman standing at the door.
Janet sighed in relief. She set the jar back down and quickly made to clean herself up, running a brush through her light brown hair and making sure her white and green patterned nightgown was buttoned closed. She hesitantly opened the door.

One day Sandra Collins, Sandy to her friends, was waiting out by a bus stop on a fine summer day. Her curly sand colored hair rested on her shoulders as her hazel eyes stared to the sky, watching the clouds go by as she waited for her friends to arrive so they could go to the mall. She heard the bus pull up and it stopped right by the stop and the doors opened with a hiss. Sandy waved as her friend Stacy walked out dressed in a light blue tank top and shorts and had medium black hair. She smiled as she hopped off. Sandy crossed her arms. You know how long Ive been waiting? Stacy looked to her. Sorry, I got held up in some chores I had to do. Sandy only smiled. Well at least youre here now.

At least, most of them did.
"What kind of tour was that?" Lisa griped. Her friend Stacy just rolled her eyes. Nothing ever seemed to satisfy Lisa. She was an indulger... she spent too much, she demanded too much, and of course, she ate too much. Lisa was overweight and didn't have a great complexion. Her hair was a deep red... Stacy knew she was a natural redhead, but it had been dyed slightly as well.
Stacy was used to this kind of behavior from Lisa. Neither of them were very popular, so they both had to take what they could get. Stacy thought a tour of a chocolate plant might actually be something that Lisa couldn't get mad at, but apparently she'd been proven wrong again. "Just a couple dinky Chocomellows?" L

It was midnight and all were asleep, except for two people. Katara and Zuko. Ever since they had kissed, they had been making daily midnight trips to see one another. It was the only time they could be alone and truly be themselves.
"It is so beautiful," Katara said staring at the moon. They laid on the grass and stared at the stars and the moon. "Yes it is," Zuko said smiling, "You are too." Katara's heart raced as those three words came out of his mouth. They both kissed and the flames from the fire Zuko created grew stronger. As they kissed Katara felt like they were the only two on this planet, and that nothing and no one could stop them.
"I've been thinking..." Katara said interupting an almost perfect moment, "That maybe we should tell Sokka. It doesn't feel right hiding this from him." Zuko was suprised at what she said and replied, "Well, I know your brother likes me and all, but I don't think he would like this." Katara touched his face and looked deep into his gold

Zuko asked annoyed that she wasn't giving him the news yet. "She should be fine, a little rest and she is good," Suki said smiling opstimistically. "Thanks," Zuko said smiling. He decided to enter the tent, and there he saw Katara sleeping peacefully. He got down on his knees and lightly brushed her cheek. "I wish I could tell you how I really feel," Zuko whispered to her. Zuko left the tent full of regret. Katara opened her eyes and whispered, "I wish I could too."
Aang soon appeared out of no where. "How are you?" he asked, his eyes full of concern. "Oh, I'm fine," she said. "Good," he said smiling. Then, there was an awkard pause between both of them.
