while laying in bed at night
all I think of is you.
You were the sweetest drug
you kept me coming even when
I didn't want to and when I thought I
was dying you made me feel alive.
So many days
I've prayed and prayed
you'd come back.
So far my prayers
have gone unanswered.
All I have left of you
is a damaged heart and
black and white photographs
reminding me of the days
you just wanted to forget.

You smirk, your brown eyes glinting. "You could, and I would enjoy that very much. But...I want to know all about you. Your secrets, your dreams, your desires." You smile, squeezing my fingers.
I blush under your scrutinizing gaze. Biting my lip, I shrug my shoulders. "I don't know. I'm really not that interesting."
You chuckle. "Now, I know that's a lie. You're one of the most interesting people I've met."

You said I was the sweetest drug;

The scent of love hung in the air,
and I fell head over heels

You smelled like chlorine and the sun,

You spun me around and sang

while people gave us dirty looks as we passed

You said you would give me the stars
and for once I was glad I wore my heart on my sleeve.
I truly thought we were going to last,
but I was always told I'm naïve...
The day you left,
the sun was hiding behind the clouds and rain was
falling atop our heads.
But summer bled into the fall and
I learned that no romance can survive

Aelita sat in her bedroom upset, sitting on her bed with her knees drawn in close to her chest. She had been like this ever since Yumi stormed off after Jeremy earlier today, except now the teardrops on her silk blankets were almost completely dry. What had she done that angered Jeremy so? Maybe he thought that she was purposely trying to make him jealous? Or maybe it was something she had no control over? Either way, the memorable events replayed in her mind like a skipping record player, and like it or not she could not remove the needle.
Through all her depression, Aelita heard a knock on the door. She refused to lift her head, rather, she didnt move at all. She simply called out, Who is it? with an upsetting tone and waited for a reply. Right now she didnt really care who was behind the door, for no one could remove the pain of being snapped at by someone she thought she cared deeply for.

Over night, XANA had accomplished more than he ever thought possible. By activating the tower, he had escaped into the real world and linked into the mainframes of computers around the globe, each of which having direct connection to the network. The possibilities to what he could next accomplish were endless, and XANA wasnt going to stop until he had what he wanted - World domination.
As the sun rose early the next morning, workers everywhere headed to their companies to start the day - Madeline being one in particular.
The company she worked for was a mortgage bank, where she filed and transferred files to and from other mortgage banks around the world. On the bright side, she was making a serious amount of money every hour. On the other hand, every computer in the building had access to the internet.

It was dark. At a demolition site not far from Kadic, workers were getting ready to wrap up their job for the night. Tearing down a worn-down building in the sweltering heat was not an ideal working condition. Drinking the rest of the water from his canteen, a rugged male gulped down what remained of his beverage and tossed the bottle aside.
Another day, the man grunted, wiping his mouth, another long, wasted day.
Another younger fellow came up to him, removing his hard hat and wiping his forehead dry of perspiration.
How much longer do you think itll take the finish the job? asked the younger fellow.
Not sure, asked the older man, at this rate, wont be done until Christmas.
Heading towards their vehicles, a street light not far from the site began to go haywire, sparks flying everywhere. Suddenly, from the bulb came a thick, black smoke, spiraling down the metal pole and onto

Jeremy had lied in his bed with energetic eyes, thinking of all the possible ways the protocol could have failed once more. Not only that, but he was thinking about the mysterious lifeform protocol he came across on the supercomputer. He couldnt help but continuously ask himself where the protocol had come from.
In all his time working on the supercomputer, he never once saw that protocol. Maybe he had just overlooked it? No. Impossible. Jeremy wasnt the kind of person to miss a single detailespecially when it came to the supercomputer, Lyoko, or even XANA. However, there was also the possibility that maybe XANA had implanted the protocol into the supercomputer to confuse them. During the activated tower, XANA had seemed to accomplish many things.

The low sun hit the mountains at the perfect angle, putting everything just beyond the rocky terrain into a shady overcast. For some the darkness was comforting, for others it was anything but.
The people of Solaceon Town watched as a peculiar man entered town from the south, wearing a metal hard hat and carrying a large iron pickaxe.

Awaking the next morning to rapid typing upon the keyboard, Dominic looked up to see Jeremy typing on his computer, like he had been the morning before. But for some reason this image of seeing the back of Jeremys head seemed oddly familiar. Maybe Jeremy was always on his computer this early in the morning, like it was just some ordinary thing for him. He couldnt exactly put his finger on it, but it was like he had seen this before. Looking over at his clock, he knew that seeing Jeremy in this same position didnt just happen by chance. Reading the digital layout on his alarm clock, his jaw dropped. The clock read 7:32 A.M. He looked to Jeremy with a look of confusion, pushing the covers aside and heading towards his dresser.
Jeremy saw that Dominic was awake and quickly closed out of his protocol screen, continuing to work on it. He stood and walked over to his bed, looking over to Dominic and casually asking, Sleep well?

And somehow still her heart goes on beating,
Though why I do not know,

Just to show her they still care,
All it takes is just a few words each day,
And all of her world lights up.
If she goes away, like her soul wants her to,
Then shell never be here to see those things,
Never feel the touch of a hand,
Or what its like to have a caring friend,
So much kindness, in a world full of hate.
Sometimes friends never really know,
How much they help, just by being there,
Something solid for me to hold onto,
Beneath my world of agony and despair,
Youve all done so much for me.
