El pasado puente fui dar una vuelta por el Louvre. Encontré un billete de avión casi regalado en Internet, de Biarritz a París. Biarritz no está lejos de mi casa y hacía tiempo que no respiraba aire cultural con mayúsculas.
París... Un café, la nieve... ¡De postal! París es magnífica con un manto blanco y su atmósfera es, si cabe, más evocadora con ello. Todos debemos respirar París al menos una vez.
Aunque yo tenía prisa, disfrutar del Louvre exige su tiempo y sólo disponía de tres días. Quería volver a gozar de los viejos maestros, visitar las salas siempre sorprendentes de Egipto y, además, con la remodelación del Centro Pompidou, habían habilitado un edificio para arte moderno y varias exposiciones de jóvenes artistas estaban entusiasmando a crítica y público, según había visto
A Perfect Girl Part 2She was getting mildly excited at the prospect of being in eighth grade. She had been on the honor roll, on the soccer team, and in the variety show. All that stress was taking its toll, so she resolved to take it easy this summer. After all, next year would be the most challenging year of middle school. Her parents debated back and forth about what they were going to do with her this summer, but they never seemed to reach any agreement. By the time May was over and June just beginning, she found herself sitting at home, wasting time at the pool, and watching TV. She had always been chubby, having been teased every now and then in elementary school and junior high, but she was also athletic and fit the upper-middle-class ideals of someone who was well rounded, so it was never much of an issue. However, as these warm, lazy summer days passed ever so slowly, something seemed to happen. At first she noticed it in her ass. Boys were really looking at it when she went out! But why?

The next morning I awoke to a table in one piece and the somewhat familiar background rumble of a city in the distance. I was obviously in a large-ish city somewhere to get that sound but I had no idea where I have been for the last few weeks. I guess that finding out where I was would be next for me to do. I got up off the comfortable bed and stretched out while yawning.
The previous day while poking around in the cupboards I stumbled upon a stash of clothing which will come in handy since I think soon might be a good time to return to my human form and do something worthwhile. What to do now that I have essentially been dumped by my own kind is something I am yet to discover though.
I looked out the window of the caravan towards Craig’s house and saw him pacing around the upstairs, running his hands through his hair and looking incredibly stressed. I laughed inwardly at that, I guess I wasn’t the only one who was out of thei
'What's that?''What's that?'10 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
On a normal, Saturday afternoon - the kind where there's nothing to do, nowhere to go, and no one to visit - two boys ran around, fighting one another with water guns. It was hard to tell one boy from the other, as they were both identical in appearance and both equally soaked through from their water battle. Their bangs hung wetly over their eyes and their red shirts clung to their young chests, but neither seemed to mind as they waged their watery war.
"Take that!" One said, peeking out from behind a bush and squirting the other boy in the chest.
The other one paused and caught himself for a moment, turning to shoot back but missing. "I'm going to get you for that one!" They continued chasing after one another for a while longer, until one decided to climb up the nailed ladder on a tree trunk that led to a small house nestled farther up the tree. As soon as he got up there, however, the other one, still on the ground, shot a stream of water up into the small house.
"Oh no you don't!"

BIOLOGICAL AND ETHOLOGICAL BACKGROUND OF HAYNS’ SOCIAL ORGANIZATION
Here I’m going to indicate basic unique features of hayns and lionars in short, partially elucidating, but not going deeper in history of their development.
Hayns – highly-specialized empaths. This means they can directly feel emotions and thoughts of their kinsmen and other animals; also they can transmit their own feelings and thoughts.
Empathy - characteristic of a class, not the species or even detachment. All mammals of Esvarra, unlike birds, predatory dinosaurs (raptors) and less evolved creatures, have empathy in one way or another. The special sense organ – empathic hair – evolved from wool on head and neck.
In the early phase Empathy gave a great advantage for herbivorous, insectivore and granivorous animals, scavengers as well. But it became an obstacle to the progress of full-fledged predators, which accounts for a peculiar specific structure of Esvarra’s fauna in h

Nie dla tego, że cuchnęło papierosami.
To była jego przestrzeń.
Przestrzeń, w której było miejsce tylko dla jeszcze jednej osoby.
Nie dla niej.
Wiedziała to od chwili, gdy zobaczyła jego twarz tak blisko tej drugiej. Gdy zastała ich razem, leżących i patrzących sobie w oczy. Może nawet zobaczyła fragment tego, co było kiedyś między nimi?
Wtedy się wycofała... zostawiła ich razem, uśmiechając się do siebie.

I stand with some of my friends, other boys with the same olive skin, dark hair and grey eyes. Today is the reaping day, and several of the boys in the 16 year old section seemed tense, then again who am I kidding?! Everyone’s tense on reaping days. A boy and a girl tribute are normally reaped from the pool of twelve to eighteen year olds, but not this year. Seeing as it was the 50th hunger games, that meant it was going to be a quarter quell.
a few days ago I was sitting at home with my girl. My mother was in the kitchen preparing a meal out of what meager supplies I’d brought back from signing up for the Tessera . My pa had just gotten home from the mines, somewhere I might end up working one day in the future. My girl was leaning against my shoulder and my brother was sitting on my lap, both of whom were asleep when the TV flickered on, something that never happens save for announcements from the capitol.

But no matter what, you can't break the spell
That you've put on me, cause there's no end
You've captured my heart and I've fallen
So intoxicating the scent of your skin
A blanket of your magic wraps me in
Every detail of you under my gaze
From afar or magnified, amazing
Strange my obsession with you
Reminds me of something I've been through
Would you know if you'd always known
I wonder silent and ponder alone

Ashes of down

Rainbow ribbon armor

We fall down
Evening is hell
You leave me down
No going 'round
Drowning in crackle glaze monotony
Death dances with wild amber
Aerie thunder on silken wings
A tuneless god
Harder, I scream, unyielding
To steel cord whines
Liquid glass shields
We fall down
On the morning moon
We fall down
To mid-world earth
We fall down
Evening is hell
I trip you down
You go to ground
Flame is a harmonic
Song to the heavens
You go down
I hold you down
Never again will I let you rise
I'll let you drown

Flashes of my memories past
Recollecting what you say
Yearn to make those moments last
High hopes that when I close my eyes
Imagine that your lips claim mine
But loneliness is by my side
And all alone I'm left each time
From starry eyed to surprised
To the depths of darkest nights
Truth withheld but never lied
Your careful words blind my sights
Waiting long and never knowing
Keep believing it's yet to come
Yet isn't love ever growing
Why then fools hearts feel so numb
This love is not love
Despaired souls cannot tell
So what do I make of
Broken dreams that you sell

"Okay." Sam responded kinda confused, hoping the angel hadn't found out about his crush.
Cas started to remove his trench coat and he says to Sam, "You're everything that I've been searching for."
"What? What are you talking about?" Sam said suddenly blushing.
Cas' voice deepens, "And there's no need for me to search no more."
He closes the distance and loosens his tie, slowly unbuttons his shirt.
Sam's face becomes a deeper shade of red as he thought, 'He may be an angel of the lord, but he has a body made for sinning.'
