Chapter 1 – White Shores
White shores are calling
You and I will meet again
And you'll be here, in my arms,
"Into the West" by Annie Lennox
The first thing I became aware of was the blinding white light shooting right into my eyes. Or, you know, shooting somewhere. I didn't currently have any eyes, and I didn't feel much compelled to rectify that at the moment. My essence shrank in on itself, looking like a splotch of dirty dish water trying to curl up and go back to sleep.
There was light all around me, but not the kind of swirling, drifting colored light that would have meant I was back Home. No, this was a distinctly Earth-like light, and the sharp pain stabbing through my essence only sealed the deal. I must have been on Earth, and I had been unconscious for some reason.
Knight of Vampires - 5th Hour AH! Naruto yelled, sitting straight up with a gasp.Knight of Vampires - 5th Hour8 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
Everyone else jumped back in shock, keeping their limbs as far away from him as possible.
What the hell was that!? Kiba yelped, clinging to Shino again.
Naruto shook his head, as if shaking himself awake. Ow .The door was electrically charged. It hurts, but Im good with this.
Im surprised youre not dead, Sasuke mumbled, No, wait, Im not. Youre always like this.
Why would they do something like that though? Kiba asked, climbing down quickly from an annoyed Shino.
Kiba, theyre not our friends until we can change them back, Shikamaru sighed, They can kill us if they like, but we cant even touch them.
You sure youre alright, Naruto? Sasuke
Knight of Vampires - 4th Hour Lee was gone. He had been standing right there a minute ago, but now he had just vanished into thin air. Hinata smiled.Knight of Vampires - 4th Hour8 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
"You have sharp eyes to have seen that," she said, "You are almost worth to be a Hyuuga, but you're nowhere close enough."
"I was just paying attention. You should do that more often. It helps a lot," he replied with a smile.
"Where's Lee?" Neji asked, angry.
"He's with Choji, right where you go if you get caught. If you want to join them, keep standing there like lumps," she giggled.
"Give them back already," Shikamaru sighed, "This is getting old."
"This isn't a game. We're serious. If you guys fail, you'll be stuck here forever. There's no joke in this," Hinata braked back, sounding almost annoyed. She blinked and her eyes changed back to their vampire red.
"You're not making this easy, are you? Fine then, we fight," Sasuke
Knight of Vampires - 3rd Hour Everyone turned around at the sound of the scream, but they calmed down when they saw who it was. Kiba had screamed out, having been at the back of the group.Knight of Vampires - 3rd Hour8 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
"What is it Kiba?" Neji growled, "Don't startle us like that."
"CHOJI'S GONE!" he yelped loudly, pointing at the spot where Choji should have been.
"Great, we lost Choji," Shikamaru sighed, "Now we have to rescue him."
"Looks like that's not going to happen," Ino smiled, standing behind Sasuke. Sakura had also appeared beside Kiba, who jumped, clinging to Shino again.
"What the…? When did you two get there?" Neji asked quickly, hiding his surprise.
"We can appear and disappear at will," Sakura giggled, "So you can't catch us."
"Sasuke," Naruto whispered, "Any plans out of this?"
"Just back up, back up…" Sasuke started, but stopped when he heard a loud click.
Knight of Vampires - 2nd Hour "THEY'RE VAMPIRES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" Kiba screamed, hiding behind Sasuke and Neji.Knight of Vampires - 2nd Hour8 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
"Silly boys," Sakura laughed.
"Yes, you guessed it Kiba," Hinata smiled, revealing more of her fangs.
Kira cleared her throat. "Well, you sure got yourselves into a situation. You can't leave now. But, we might help you."
"And why would you do that?" Neji asked, stepping away from Kiba.
"Because it's fun," Tenten laughed.
"So, here's what well do," Kira continued, "If you can find a way to change us back and find a way to get out before 5 AM tomorrow, we'll let you fix us and then we can get out of here. But, there's a catch. We'll be going around the building, and if we catch you, we turn you into our slaves and you'll never be able to leave. Also, if you can't figure a way out by that time, the doors will permanently lock and there will be no way of escaping. You'll be at our mer
Knight Of Vampires - 1st Hour "Well, this is it?" Naruto asked, looking out at the huge, old, building on the other side of the gate.Knight Of Vampires - 1st Hour8 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
"Yeah, looks like it is," Kira mumbled, poking the gate, "Looks safe enough."
"Looks creepy to me," Choji shivered, stuffing more potato chips into his mouth.
Kiba laughed. "Come on, it's not that bad. Why are we here anyways?"
"It is because the people living here are on a vacation, and they have asked for someone to watch the house for them," Lee smiled.
Everyone sighed, "Another useless mission."
Sasuke lifted his foot up and kicked the gate, which swung open with a rusty snap. When it had opened fully, one tilted on its hinges.
"Looks like this place needs major maintenance," Ino mumbled.
Shikamaru yawned, "Well, I'm not doing it. They can hire someone else."
The large group walked up to the front door, looking at the enormous front yard. It was overgrown with weeds, and was watery like a swamp. Neji stuck the key in the lock, twisted it, and pushed
La LloronaCome to me children, dearsLa Llorona5 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Can't you hear me weep?
Desperate cries pierce the blackest night
Rouse you from contented sleep.
I've yearned so long to hold you,
Wrapped tight in deaths embrace,
I beseech pale, waif like hands
Come, forgive my once foolish mistake.
Sacrificed such delicate innocence
To loves unrequited lure.
For one heartless man I gave it all
So his hand I could secure.
To prove I loved him beyond all things
I cast you to the waters depths
Gave up those I'd held most dear
And pray new love could heal regret.
My sacrifice though did not appease,
Condemned by my own desire.
For my crime I had to repent,
Ignite my own funeral pyre.
But now I search for my lost darlings,
Every long and lonesome night,
Along the banks at the rivers side
Where I'd held you out of sight.
Come back to me please children, dears
My cries are want to lead you home.
Join me at the rivers side
And together let's fall beneath the flow.
Knight of Vampires - 10th Hour As an unseen clock struck the hour, a door in an empty hall creaked slowly open. Neji peaked through the crack and looked around.Knight of Vampires - 10th Hour8 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
Everythings clear, he whispered, glancing back at the others, Come on.
Sasuke, Naruto, and Shikamaru snuck out into the hall after him, coming to a stop at the first door.
Well, heres the washroom. And what the heck is a can-opener room? Sasuke mumbled, looking across at the adjacent door.
You dont want to know, Neji shivered.
What would they have a sauna and a flypaper room in a house for? Naruto wondered.
And what would a basting room and an enigma room be used for? Shikamaru asked.
What the hell kind of house is this? they all muttered.
I have no idea, Sasuke sighed,
Knight of Vampires - 12th Hour The hall behind the hidden panel led the four remaining boys along, twisting and turning at a desperate angle. Finally reaching the top after a few tumbled and a lot of chakra, Neji pushed the loose hatch of the ceiling up. It opened a section of the floor up, and all four climbed out.Knight of Vampires - 12th Hour8 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
Were back where we started, Naruto mumbled, looking at the front door that entered hours before.
Forget it, Sasuke hissed, Lets go. I dont like this place, and we have an hour left.
Yeah, this place looks creepier now than it did before, Shikamaru said, staring at the ceiling, I think we should hurry. Wheres the book?
What book? Neji asked.
The book with the rituals and stuff in it, he replied calmly.
You had it last in the room, as I recall, Sasuke pointed out,

Tenten laughed again. Guess!
We dont have time for games, Tenten, Neji scowled.
Of course you dont, she smiled, Its midnight. That means you only have five hours until the game is over. Having fun yet?
This isnt fun at all, Sasuke mumbled, Just stop messing around.
Well, Im sorry youre bored, she frowned.
How the hell can we be bored? Naruto snapped, jumping to his feet.
Youre not bored? she questioned, Thats great! That means we can have some more fun! I hope you all like swimming!
How can you think of swimming in here? Shikamaru sighed.
I cant swim, Shino replied.

In hopes that
You wont over come my disguise
I have shadows in my sun
That are burning me alive
Stripping away the masked layers
Pealing me back inside
Dying in front of you
A smile is plastered
Across my flaming face
The sun inside can only burn for so long
Until it becomes the moon without love

Bury the CastleOnce upon a time, she was beautiful. Once upon a time, she was happy.Bury the Castle6 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
But now she wears her wreath of dead leaves like a twisted tiara, and clutches at the swirling hems of broken dreams. Somehow they all twist out of her grasp, as if they don't want to associate with the has-been shadow of what she's become.
Every day she sits against the ruined wall of her fortress, her castle, crumbled and lifeless. Some days she screams and sobs, cursing the gray sky that falls like broken glass around her feet, shattered by her anguish. Other days she curls up in a ball and squeezes her eyes shut tight, trying to block out the raspy caws of the ravens and crows that pick at her wasted life. Some days she stamps her feet, not paying any attention to the rocks that penetrate the calloused soles. Other days she cradles the dirty, bloody appendages in her hands, whimpering and asking God why this had to happen to her. He never answers her, and she hates Him for that.
She never talks to anyone. Occasio

DragosDoarme. Un somn adanc, complex, respirand greu, de parca ar fi gata sa isi dea ultima suflare. Este 7:48, Luni dimineata. O raza care s`a strecurat prin draperiile visinii incearca sa ii strapunga pleoapele. El geme grav, si se intoarce cu spatele la acea raza, care incerca sa il avertizeze de un lucru evident, si anume ca urma sa intarzie din nou la ateliere.Dragos7 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

You- you should see your faces! Kira gasped, laughing hard, You l-look like idiots!
Yeah, you guys look so stupid, Kiba chuckled from the doorway, I cant believe you guys.
Someone mind explaining this? Sasuke asked, confused out of his mind.
"Yeah, sure, Kira said, calming down, This was a gag we girls pulled on you guys. It was entirely made up. The Hokage and the Jonins were in on this as well. We owned you so bad, and you had no clue.
Wait a second, what do mean? What about the vampire thing? Neji mumbled.
Oh, that, Hinata smiled, Color contacts and fake fangs. Easy to get. Not something you guys would know about.
A Writer's BlockA sense of pending doom overcomes a writerA Writer's Block6 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Consumed in a frustrating inability
To construct a poetic sentence
For one is trapped in an exasperating moment where
So many words cannot be penned
Thus so many emotions that cannot be expressed
And so many insights that cannot be shared
All to blame on the burden called a writers block
A writers nightmare diagnosis
But one must let time heal
This temporary feeling of wordlessness
And one must let inspiration reopen
This blockage of poetic emptiness
For a writers next epiphany will soon come.
FreezeThe neon-orange sign stared him in the face.Freeze7 years ago in Science Fiction More Like This
It hit him, suddenly, that maybe it would look odd. He was, after all, standing there in front of a school bulletin board for five minutes straight. The one add had caught his attention.
Danny stared at the words: Help us out! Become a volunteer for the hospitals cardio experiments!
Sighing, he flipped his backpack over his shoulder. His father had a heart attack before he was born. He hadnt died from it, no. But it scared Danny so bad when he learned about it, he wanted to fight back. According to this add, maybe he could.
He reluctantly walked away, seeing green because of the brightly colored add. Blinking didnt help; he couldnt get it out of his mind.
What did it matter, anyway? Just a little experiment could never hurt. It might be a once-in-a-lifetime chance to show his father he could help. H
