the intercom was the one to announce that his body had finally given up. i don't remember what i was wearing that day, or how my hair looked, or what noises fell out of my mouth. death has dulled the sharp edges within me. this is what i do know: some people burst into tears and some people sat frozen and pale and some people simply got up and left the room.
"are you okay?" someone asked me, and i found that i was lying on the floor, though i couldn't understand how i'd gotten there. the overhead lights were buzzing and humming, or maybe it was just my heart. confused, i sat up quickly and let the blood rush to my head in one glorious fell swoop.

As Reality Strikes...I often sit alone and cry at night.As Reality Strikes... in Free Verse More Like This
Seemingly alone, and desperate to tears.
Wondering if my heart will ever see the light.
And come back together to face my fears.
Or if it will be lost forever out of sight.
Just falling down again with no one to be near...
No one coming to help me win the fight.
I often feel lost, drowning in tears.
As reality comes crashing down with spite.
I admit life is not always bad as it seems.
Sometimes it's good, and other times sweet.
But there are times, more often now than not.
When life begins to take it's toll on me.
And tears down the most precious dreams.
Leaving me alone and hollow deep down inside.
Letting my imagination just take me away.
Deeper into darkness and driving me insane.
Stripping me down and stealing me from Reality.
One moment for me could be full of life,
and the next minute I am falling down again.
Looking around fearfully without a guide.
And then another nightmare shakes my dreams.
Knocking down the walls of my pleasant peace.

I don't really know why everyone has a dream, but everyone does. I know because I have one, just as every living person on the planet we call our home does. We all want normalcy, we all want that sense of security that comes with being normal. We all crave that little feeling of happiness that seems to be so hard to find anymore these days, as if it's only a distant memory that's hard to remember. I often wonder at night before I fall asleep if that's true. Is it just a distant memory of a shattered dream? Or is it something more? I don't know the answer, and I doubt you do either, but I do know one thing, as I said, we all have a dream. What is that dream of normalcy? It's simple really if you try and look past your simple craves of logic. It's the longing for a perfect childhood, good upbringings, we all want loving parents, and we all need a safe ro

All is lost .
All is gone .
The pieces of the puzzle fade away
The keys to the doors are stashed away
Is all really lost again today?
Or is this all just a broken haze .
All these lies
All these days
It all seems so lost
Like a broken promise made.
Do you see the world?
Or do you hide?
Can you cry?
Or show your battle scars?
I look around and feel
So lost and all alone
And yet I know I'm not alone
But still it hurts.
It's all coming down
It's crashing down again
And it's just a maze
A clock winding down
Until our final days
I can play all the love songs I can sing
But it still doesn't add up to the tally
Just more lies build
And more tears fall
I love the lyrics of this song
But they seem so empty
And they'll just fade
They'll fade when the rhythm's gone
It'll break when the lyrics end
This little cocoon I've put myself in
Wrapped inside these songs
It will just crumble once again

The Bite that cursed them all .
A long time ago, vampires raged war on the Magi. A war that ended up lasting centuries upon time, and it soon took an even deadlier turn to an end, or was it a beginning .
Four brothers, Dmitri, Sebastian, Louis, and Vermont, though not bound by blood, but brothers by friendship, forged a plan that they believed would end the war that plagued them all
During a battle, the brotherhood crept into the shadows of a town fully dominated by Magi of all kinds, witches, warlocks, mages, wizards and even some shades. Having swayed a few shades outside of town, they managed to slip in unseen, and unheard, like the predators that they were, and were able to scout out the warring leaders that led the Magi's rebellion against the vampires who were being pledged and hunted for their ways of blood drinking, though it not being their choice in their natures calling.

A band of light blue solid energy was wrapped around the middle of his forearms. He didn’t seem to be hurt, but he distinctly remembered passing out on the battlefield after Morokah was hurt.

Suddenly, a blast of energy radiated from the vortex, coating the figures emerging from the center in streams of light blue-green energy as they plummeted to the ground.

Chapter 5: Evolving Night
Wind tore through the trees as Silver found himself amidst a torrent of chaos. The trees shook violently, swaying side to side to the point their roots showed at the apex of each sway. Rain struck the grey earth below Silver's feet, muddying the already-disgusting pale grit. A battle appeared to be taking place in the sky above; the clouds appeared to be separated by a fissure, leaving a burning red crevice between them. The boy looked around for… something. He knew he was looking for something, but he did not know what he was expecting to find. As he turned on his heels, he noticed a darkened figure in the distance, slowly trudging through the hell storm toward him. In the pit of his stomach, Silver had a worrying feeling about this figure, but it couldn't be worse than what was happening about them.
As the winds picked up, and a roar could be heard from high above, sounding as if the sky was howling in pain, Silver headed toward the figure, c

Chapter 10: Defeat
A pained groan rumbled from Silver's throat as he felt a coarse surface rub against his cheek. He pushed himself up, unable to see what he was pushing up from yet, as the dream had not fully cleared up its darkness. His fingers slipped under loose pebbles as he rose to his feet. He could feel the weight of his sword tugging idly at his hip from its sheath. Slowly he got his footing stable, still feeling the pebbles beneath the souls of his boots.
By now, the dream's darkness had begun to clear, the light, which Silver had not seen since before the first dream, stinging his eyes as the darkness faded. Silver's hand rushed to shield his eyes from the sunlight, furrowing his brow with irritation as he waited for his eyes to adjust. Once the spots faded from his sight, he scanned his surroundings. In front of him was the edge of a cliff, the bottom of which was both too far for him to see and covered by a shroud of fog. When he turned around, he was met with the

“Wait, the highest Arch-angel? Why have I never heard of him before?” Silver turned his attention to Ravir, who still stared at the heavily armored warrior standing in the smoking crater and in between them and Sieger. Ravir simply shrugged at Silver’s question, but kept her eyes fixed upon Alcadeias and Sieger, whom had their eyes fixed on each other.
Sieger kept his sword at the ready, pointed directly towards Alcadeias, who had not moved an inch save for unfolding himself from his landing position. Sieger’s red blade hummed as streams of energy wisped off, dissipating inches from the blade. Alcadeias held his blade pointed downward, parallel with his legs, and rested both of his hands on the end of the handle. Alcadeias’s bright blue and silver eyes were locked on Sieger’s every movement, the pattern extending from his pupils’ edge into his iris in the form of the North Star acting like crosshairs, showin

Morokah's gaze shifted quickly from side to side as he flew dangerously low through the kingdom. Fire erupted around him as a group of red dragons swooped down and began to follow behind him. The larger dragon extended his wings out, forcing himself to slow down and pull behind his pursuers. His gigantic maw opened wide and a stream of violent black flames erupted outward, consuming the lesser dragons in the blast. Their charred bodies crashed into the nearby buildings as Morokah soared passed them and ascended, looking over his kingdom.
Billowing smoke climbed up from most of the main buildings as his soldiers fought against the rebels. The king let out a heavy snarl as he saw a group of armor-clad dragons soaring in through the decimated gates, lead by a much larger dragon. Its scales were mostly red, but along his neck and spine were stripes of a much darker red and black. Morokah pulled his wings to his body, diving down to gather speed. When he neared th

The Chevalier shook as the world around the large aircraft warped and shifted into a constant stream of blues, greens, and pale yellows. Panels along the back folded downward and hugged the aircraft, allowing for a faster travel through the wormhole. The powerful engines roared as the six thrusters pumped out a constant flow of bright blue energy. Silver tried his best from barfing up the contents of his stomach, as the aircraft seemed to pick up an immense amount of speed upon entering the wormhole. He seemed to be the only one affected by the transition of speed, as all the angels in the cargo hold seemed to be fine and all sat upright. Swallowing the acid in his throat, Silver turned his attention to the static that started over the intercom.

Surges of pain shot up Silver’s spine as cold medical tape was strapped along the burns on his forearms. The “numbing sedative” that had been applied to his arms to remove any pain only worked for the pain that came upon him when his adrenaline faded. The pressure on his burned skin caused his nerves to relive the pain he felt on the mountainside shortly after calling in a pick-up.
As the light-haired angel snipped the excess medical tape off and made sure the tape covering Silver’s arms were tightly wrapped, Morokah strode into the room. His scaled brows were tightly pressed inward and his jaw was visibly tense.
“If you would, doctor, I’d like some time to speak to my son.” Morokah spoke in a low tone that seemed to lack the usual rumble that vibrated the ground. The angel nodded quickly and made her way out of the room; taking any supplies she had brought in to fix any of Silver’s wounds and burns.

A single beam of light shook Silver out of his sleep, forcing him to pull his pillow over his eyes to block the blinding light. Grumbles of frustration rumbled out as he pulled himself up, haphazardly tossing his pillow aside. His eyelids felt like they were made out of stone as he tried to wake himself up. He heard his elbows and back crack as he stretched out.
After many attempts to motivate himself to get up, Silver finally just swung his legs off his bed, got to his feet, and hoped his body didn’t rebuke and flop him back to his soft mattress.
Silver’s vision came into focus after a quick shake of his head, and he gave his arms another stretch. A flicker of motion attracted his line of sight to his right arm, and he noticed a wave of dark energy surge from his shoulder to the tips of his fingers. Shortly after the same energy traveled up his left arm. He felt his muscles shift from tired and loose to warm and malleable. He then

Daniel stood on top of a boulder scanning the area. He had caught onto a very unfamiliar smell. It's a werewolf's smell no doubt in that, but blood and death are clinging to the smell. So, instead of just leading Lilith to all the werewolves in the town, he decided to lead her to the one that is more than likely the one who murdered those people.
Lilith walked up beside him. Her breathing was ragged like she just stopped running. "Do you Have to run all the time?" She managed to gasp out between breaths.
Daniel looked over at her, "They're moving fast." He looked forward again, His ears twitched and his head tilted slightly to the side as he listened to something that Lilith couldn't hear. "They stopped. They are not to far ahead."
Felius walked up to the other side of Daniel, "I'm so glad you can track down the murderer so fast, Snowflake."
Daniel growled, glaring at him, "I wouldn't have been subjected to doing this if you didn't make decisions on his own."

Climbing into the drivers seat, Lilith glared at him. "Is that a threat?"
"No, It's lives promise." Felius said, grinning at her. Trying to ignore his stupid grin, she started her jeep and took off towards the station. Lilith hoped he would just be silent the whole ride, but it was not to be. "I wonder what they want anyways. It's not like I have done anything wrong. I only got back and Daniel goes and throws himself into this mess."
"You made it worse by volunteering him to help in the search." Lilith commented. Why did she just reply back? That will only encourage him to continue talking. Yelling at herself in her mind she continued, "Plus, they probably realized how much of a bastard you are they fina

She struggled to get him to put her down.
Ignore her, Felius continued to run out into the forest. His senses on high alert. All he knew was that they had to get far away as soon as possible. "Hold on." Felius said.

The next thing Lilith new she was watching the world flow around her, like she was in a different dimension. It suddenly stopped by a small pond.

Mikiko was standing in a pet store covering one ear to try and hear Felius because Poki was trying to get the dog treats away from Daniel, with no success, "We found Daniel."
Felius could hear some commotion then a loud curse, "Um, Mikiko, what is going on there?"
Mikiko laughed nervously, "Like I said, we found Daniel. Only, um, How do I put this?" Mikiko looked at Poki and Daniel. Poki was on the ground struggling to get free from where Daniel was sitting on him. "We found him in a pet store eating their dog treats."

Felius still had a grip on Lilith's upper arm. She had stopped struggling, but he would not let his guard down. He turned his attention towards Daniel and the black werewolf. Felius never thought he would ever see a black werewolf again. They are easily swayed to any side that gives them the best benefit. Meaning they don't care for anyone but themselves. The last time he saw a black one was when he was traveling around in Russia. He was more than sure that that werewolf had not died because he was young. That means this is him. Why and how he is here is the question. Felius' eyes narrowed as he tried to figure out the question.
Lilith tilted her head up to see Felius' face. After what he told her she was expecting him to be smiling with a blood lusting gaze. Instead she found him watching contently. He was so confusing.

Lilith was right behind him, contemplating whether she should do something to him while she was behind him. She watched his tail swish back and forth. It was so tempting to just touch it. Just one little touch wouldn't hurt anyone, right? Lilith reached out and grabbed Daniel's tail. Daniel stiffened as he felt Lilith grab his tail and begin to stroke it. "It's just so soft ."

5 Gods Prologue When the world first started, there was the five main elements: Earth, Air, Fire, Water, and Light. Little did the elements know but darkness was born as well but was forgotten under the earth when the elements rose. But the five became gods and goddesses, starting a new world built on their wishes, life at it's beginning and the gods having jobs of their own to keep the world at balance. Earth was to keep the planet moving it's rotation and brought upon the plate tectonics. Air was to be ever-changing and flowing like water should, eroding some earth away only for it to be born once again, air must keep a close eye on the gasses in it's dominion to ensure life to continue. Fire must keep the earth going, heating the planet's core, and is the only one that knows of dark's existence. Water was to help give the breath of life to the air and to keep the oceans and seas to their own depths. Light brought the suns rays to start life when it5 Gods Prologue in Profiles More Like This

The glittering lights shined on the large stained glass window that spanned across the entire front wall, the phoenix emblem on it was red and yellow, almost flickering like fire. Music echoed through the halls no matter what part you were in the castle. People were flooding in with odd dresses and clothing ranging from the pale reds to the darkest blacks, many of them were multi-colored, everyone was wearing masks of some sort. Some only covered around their eyes and some that covered their faces fully. Many of them were dancing or mingling at the food tables.

Tried to survive in a world that wanted them dead. In due time, the gods who gave the Elements their gifts became angry and created a different being, one that cannot be beaten by any mere human. We were meant to be the weapons to make the world for the Elements, to kill off the humans, but we refused. We wanted to be our own lives. So we fled, we fled to the one place nobody ruled yet, the hollow underground. Tunnels snaked through most to the planet under the surface, only did we know were to find them, we called it home.

He told me his name was Xigbar and crap like that, and he said he knew how to get me more fan girls if I followed him....so with my dumb self I followed him and he jacked my heart and my money which I got him for when I moved to Castle Oblivion.

I just wanted to see that your one sexy guy and no girl can handle your hot body (I worship myself alot lately.) Anyway back to the real topic.
I just went on my first mission....AND IT SUCKED!!!! What I had to do is laugh at a old woman crying for help for some one to save her 100 cats up in the tree. It was kinda funny until she started beating me with her six ton purse!!! Axel (the little welp!) Laughed at me and ran to tell the others. If I wasn't on the ground getting mouled to death I would have killed him right then and there! I'LL GET YOU RED HEAD FREAK!!!!
Yesterday was of to a bad start but Xemans gave me second chance on another mission. But the bad news is I HAVE TO PARTNER UP WITH AXEL!!! Man if my life was not in danger I would have told that Xemnas of real good! Anyway it was a trust misson, I had to blind fold myself and walk of backwards of the TwilightTown clock tower. It was crazy and I did not trust Axel with my life but if I did

You really think you scare me?
I'm writing this letter on my own special Dairy paper to let you no that I'm always ready for you. A few days go I found out that I can do much more then you or anybody else in this headquaters could ever dream of. If I actually cared to do so I would actually take over this little group of weak-minded fools and bend then to my will.
So I'm not going to waste my time writing you a threat letter like the one you wrote me in my own dairy (it most have taken alot of brain power to write it) and I'm not even going to mind you personally but always know I don't gotta hid in order to keep my eye on you. I don't even have to be in the same ROOM to keep my I on you. Just know if you strike first I'll make sure it's the last stike you make...if it's war you want its war you got.

Okay. So there was a creature stirring. Two, actually. But, in the spirit of Christmas, humor me.
"Artemis, just stay there." Paula Crock's voice was soft but sure through the cell phone receiver.
Artemis looked with disbelief at nothing in particular, continuing the conversation with her mother.
"Mom, its Christmas Eve!"
"At twelve-thirty, it isn't Christmas Eve anymore, Artemis."
The archer then took on the tendencies of a normal teenage girl, answering with a slight whine.
"Artemis, stay there. You sound exhausted. God forbid you fall asleep on the way home. Just stay the night, okay?"
Artemis mumbled something incoherently.
"Có, mẹ." Artemis repeated tenderly.

She got along with the team [mostly]. Just because she likes to spend some time alone with her thoughts doesn't make her secretive, or dangerous. Wally seemed to think that, though.
Why did he constantly have to annoy the crap out of her!? He just needed to suck it up and accept Roy's decision. But no. He just had to take it out on her. Every. Day.
But the dancing did help. She was in the worst of moods, especially since she totally screwed up the last mission. Let the target get away and got a nice, six-inch gash between her shoulder blades to commemorate her wonderful contributions to the team.
And the second Batman left, Wally wouldn't shut his mouth.
The vicious words turned to vicious screams, and then, just like that, she couldn't take it anymore. She snapped.
Wally certainly didn't expect it when Artemis knocked him in the gut. After that, she left, Wally on the floor writhing i

"Umm... your cut it's under your shirt "
"Thanks Baywatch, I would have never guessed, what with the fact that I have a searing pain between my shoulders, and I can feel the blood turning my shirt into a wet towel."
"Shut up, I was just trying to help!"
"Help!? Is that what you call it? You want to truly help, Wall-man? Try not existing!"
"Impeccable comeback. You know if I wasn't here you'd have probably died from the blood loss."
"Well, I absolutely love your timing. Maybe now that you're a local hero Megan will stop throwing herself at Conner and give you the time of day!"
The misplaced yell coming from behind me scared the crap out of me. And the way he said it was the oddest thing about it. Like he wasn't bothered by my last remark, but more like a teacher trying to shut up the class.

For the next two weeks, she didn't even step foot in the teams' headquarter. No one questioned this decision, not even her dad. She didn't want to look at Wally, much less talk to him. All she could feel was anger towards him.
He took advantage of me
I HATE HIM . No, no I don't
Why would he do that?
Since that afternoon, not once had she thought about how he might like her.
She kept communication with base to a minimum. She hadn't seen her teammates in days. At one point, she heard Megan's concerned voice softly float through her mind, but her thoughts cut it off with an irritated hiss, lecturing the voice about respect, privacy, and respecting someone's privacy.
All her briefing and paperwork had been done at home, and the team assumed that she wanted to regain her health before going back into the field.
But Wally knew better. He knew that Artemis would probably have to be chained to h

Normally I would yell. Scream; a string of profanities leaving my mouth. But instead I just sat there. Sat there and took the pain.
I slowly washed my face, then brushing my teeth. I didn't look myself in the mirror once until my pajama pants warmly greeted my hips. It was childish, what I did next, and in that moment, I didn't care.
"I don't wanna go back in my room." I whispered to myself.
But I did anyway.
I slowly opened the door, tenderly crossing the room to my bed, the pain and shock from my fall in the bathroom still resonating through my spine. Wally was waiting for me, now clad i

Even though I was caught off guard [and mentally in a corner piecing back together my shattered ego], I still found myself with a grin plastered on my face. I looked down and gazed at the source of my euphoria.
She lightly sighed, moving her hand closer to her face. The face that was lying on my chest. She seemed so peaceful, her golden hair catching the noontime light perfectly.
I wonder what she's dreaming about
Me; hopefully. But then again, she's most likely dreaming about Connor. If she's dreaming about boys at all. I looked down at her, catching her biting her lip. She let out another soft sigh.
Yeah. She was dreaming about Conner. And yet, it didn't even dent my current mood. She was here with me, not Supey. She was lying next to me in her bed, her head on my chest, with my arm wrapped around her.

Do you feel any better? My dad's asleep now, so if you want I can talk.
Of course, she told Serafina everything that happened. They were best friends- and apart from that, she had a habit of random telepathic checkups.
Artemis immediately called the girl, happy when she picked up, interrupting the first ring.
Not a 'hello', 'what's up?', or 'are you okay?'. What happened. And her blunt nature was one of the reasons they were friends. She easily explained all that had occurred, Serafina interrupting her not once. And when Artemis was finished with her story, she once again exhibited her cut-and-dry tendencies.
"So are you gonna go out with him?"
Though she was used to the personality, the question itself set her back.

"Uh, what happened?" I asked, sitting up. Luci was crouched beside my bed in her pajamas.
"You fell earlier, I suppose." She said. 'Fell' wasn't the best word. More like I 'fainted'. I gave a long 'oh' so she wouldn't ask about Otto or why I would've fallen in the first place.
"Luci Is it okay if I like another boy?" I asked.
"Sure it is. I mean, it's not like there's a thing wrong with it. Why Clint, you're gay!" She suddenly exclaimed, giggling a bit.
"I'm what?" I looked at her wildly, my eyes growing big.
"You're attracted to other boys. It's nothing to be afraid of. I think it's cute!" Luci encouraged me. I smiled, hugging her.
"All right!" I exclaimed. And that's how it began. For the next couple years I just wore that title proudly. I wanted to impress the other boys by being stronger than them. Otto and I grew to like each
Clint's Boyfriend PART 5I walked into the courtyard during the usual time I'd be going home to meet up with Otto. He said he'd wanted to ask me something, and I couldn't say no to my best friend. I found him sitting at a large rock in the fields near the courtyard.Clint's Boyfriend PART 5 in Short Stories More Like This
"Hey there," I crouched next to him and caressed his face like I usually would, speaking in a romantic voice to him, "You wanted to talk to me about something?" I asked. He smirked, running his hand through the back of my head.
"Yeah. About us, you know? The only time we get to be together is during the weekends and when you're not dating those silly girls. Why don't we date?" He asked.
"Well Why don't we?" I didn't hesitate to take off my back pack and start unbuttoning my shirt. Otto smirked, doing the same before we started kissing and then making out right there behind that rock. I don't remember having as much fun with Otto any time after that unless we were alone just messing with each other. I stopped kissing Otto when I heard

"There we go, Clint!" She exclaimed, placing a small flower in the pocket of my shirt, "now you look beautiful!" She told me, hugging me tightly.
"No, Luci," I said teasingly, leaning into her hug. She stared at me, "I look fabulous!" I giggled, letting her twirl me around the room excitedly. I was a boy, yes it was true. And I acted like a girl, of course. But when you lived in a small shop with seamstresses that happened. And I wouldn't have it any other way.
"Luci, Clint, you need to hurry up!" My muther called up the stairs.
"Yes ma'am!" Luci and I said in unison, racing each other down the creaking staircase to the front of the house, where my muther and my grandma were starting to open up our tailor shop. My muther was the greatest. I actually loved her better than Luci. But you've go
Clint's Boyfriend PART 2He looked so handsome, I had to admit. His features were a little older than mine. His face was blank, a little blush covering his face when he noticed me staring, but his hair was brunette, and his eyes were black and deep. Really deep. Just staring towards me. I did notice something funny. He had an earring just like mine, except his was in his right ear only, but not both.Clint's Boyfriend PART 2 in Short Stories More Like This
"Now, Mister Auburn, take a seat next to Clint in the back." Frau Libiny told him. He smiled and nodded, making his way to the back to sit beside me. I managed to give a wide smile and say 'Hi' before I saw him eying me a little weirdly. I don't know. I think he liked me.
"Hi Clint." He said, looking down at the paper in front of him. His hand was trembling, and he often looked over at me when the class moved on. Before I knew it, it was time for lunch.
"C'mon Otto, I can share my lunch with you." I said to him, grabbing his trembling hand and pulling him out of the seat almost. Maybe I was being a little too
Clint's Boyfriend PART 3Soon enough it was time for us to take a break from school to celebrate the holidays that our community had.

"May I help you?" I asked routinely, getting off the stair banner and going into the shop. Otto was at the counter with a large present in hand.
"Evening Clint." He said, handing the present to me.
"A present? Thanks," I shook the small box, hearing something knock around the edges before I sat it on the counter and ripped off the paper. A card was tied to a lump covered in paper. I stared at the card, disappointed I couldn't read the language.
"I can't read American, I'm sorry," I told him, returning the card.
"That's fine. I'll read it to you then It says 'Dear Clint, Thanks for being really nice. I like you a lot. Love Otto.'" He recited. My cheeks felt warm, but I smiled nicely, hugged Otto tightly.

"I'm so happy you're okay!" He exclaimed, putting his hand to my face where the bandages were. I looked at him.
"You should've left by now." I told him sorrowfully, hoping I hadn't held him from leaving, but also wanting to have.
"I told my parents I wouldn't dare leave you when you were in the hospital!" He exclaimed with a worried look on his face. He pulled up a chair to the side of the bed and sat down. I got out from under the covers and sat with my feet over the side.
"I should have tried harder to convince my muther to let me go. You're going to be nothing without me just like I'd be nothing without you," I said, looking down. Otto tilted his head and tried to get a better look at my face, and put his hand under my chin.
"You'd be great without me. I'm not the only boyfriend you'll ever get. Especially with such a nice personality like yours," He complimented me, making my heart feel less heav
Clint's Boyfriend PART 6The afternoon before Otto would leave, I agreed to spend the night at his house and have one last time with him before we never saw each other again. Suddenly, when we came to an alleyway we ran into some of the high schooler boys. They were smoking, and dressed like they were just ready to kill. I was more afraid than attracted.

"Hey there kid," He said tauntingly, "What'cha got in that backpack?" He started pulling on Otto's backpack, and I could only watch as one of them smacked him across the head.
"Otto!" I gasped.
"Clint, go home, I'm okay." He told me, getting hit by another one of the older boys. I shook my head and slipped off my backpack.
"Hey! Get away from my boyfriend!" I tackled the back of one of them, holding on for dear life to his neck. He thrashed around, yelling at the others to get me off of him. I finally got thrown off of the older boy, landing on Otto. He looked at me worriedly.
