Your lips remain painted with the scars of torment
Carved so as to split with every word of speech
The glass that slices through your softened flesh
Bears the marking we know as 'Vinashuka'
And now he lies beneath the falling sand
Drowning in a world that is sinking away
Though his feet will seek the stability of ground
He finds himself caught by 'Vinashuka'
A disturbing word that rings hollow at best
For it carries the tone of a tainted solitude
A heart that has been corrupted by physical pain
Can only scream 'Vinashuka!'
How does a man know when he has gone insane?
To descend into a world where logic is naught
A moon that carries the colour of blood
Shall paint my skin with 'Vinashuka'
I have lost all sense of meaning in this place
There is no where else for my soul to flee
Caught within the whispers of delusory madness
I can only repeat Vinashuka...

CourageYou ask me, 'what is courage?'Courage in Free Verse More Like This
Courage is seeing the hail of fire that surrounds you;
The flashes of light that blind.
Projectiles that score flesh and bone,
Sending red rivers splashing through the sky.
Courage is seeing all of that and staying on to fight,
Simply because there are those who cannot.

As The Skies PartedAs The Skies Parted:As The Skies Parted in Free Verse More Like This
As the clouds in the skies parted and fire rained to the earth
The soft keening of the voices trapped within the abyss
resounded throughout the empty plains, as the world prepared itself
to meet a fate no worse than complete and utter oblivion.
The waters turned red with blood and bubbled with a poisonous brew
Whilst the creatures of the mountains, mutated into vicious monstrocities
A pall of darkness, settled around the Earth like a cloak of shadows
and in its grip we knew the true fury of a God gone mad.
Hundreds were slain by the rocks that pummelled the ground
As they fell from the heavens like burning stars of rage and anger
Thousands more fell to the plagues unleashed upon the people;
For famine and sickness claimed far more than the flame and stone...
All this, was contained within a magical snowglobe
A special artifact presented to the crew-member named Reaper
On a special day known as his birthday...
It was a gift from the Captain, forged with the m
Without JoyA bard may choose to sing a song of happy days and eternal blissWithout Joy in Free Verse More Like This
But why should I sing of happiness, when misery is all that is?
The suffering we see around us, is tantamount to hell
Yet we accept these horrid days; caught within a spell
Perhaps I'm simply being morbid, a soul disturbed by a darker voice
Or perhaps I am the whispered truth; personified by choice.
I will not speak of revelations nor of better days to come
In terms of hope for the future; I'd rather remain mum.
For the world I've seen has shown to me, that pain equates to life
I'm sure you've tried it many times on the edge of a sharpened knife
Why would you open embittered wounds and seek a constant pain?
Why must you always drench yourself in a cold and solemn rain?
Is the heart a device so perfectly fragile, that it needs to be reinforced
Or do we simply enjoy ourselves; screaming until we're hoarse...
The answer to this is not so simple and I've sought it out for years
I've searched in every distant cor
The Simple DelightsThe Simple Delights:The Simple Delights in Free Verse More Like This
The world is a place of simple pleasures
of the simple delights that we fail to see
Like a rose whose thorns will prick unwary
we focus on the negatives that be
But if we chose to hold the rose
Gentle and with grace
Its thorns would simply press our skin
Not pain or poison laced
If we could learn the simple lessons
of looking at all the good things in life
Then food would be the only object
to meet the edge of my knife
I see so many different ways
to enjoy the life that I have today
I could go to the store and buy a snack
A treat for me I say
Perhaps I'll choose to walk the distance
or maybe I'll take the bus this morn
But none can take the simple pleasure
of the rising sun at dawn
The simple things are what I wish to share
For like my heart, they are always true
and if you were here, sitting beside me
then I'd share this sunrise with you

Fury of the Frost GiantsFury of the Frost Giants:Fury of the Frost Giants in Free Verse More Like This
No mortal man can stand
Against the Giants of the Frost.
For they bear the strength of ages
And the wisdom of the lost.
When first we came upon them
We were scattered by their might.
The fury of a Giant
Was a truly fearsome sight...
Cowering in fear
And waiting to be eaten.
We knew in our hearts
That we were utterly beaten.
Salvation lay behind us
In a death of blood and steel.
Yet fate would always turn
On a twisted crooked wheel.
For we found a cave of ancients
Bearing symbols of the knife.
It led us to a forge
That demanded our life.
Fourteen brothers sacrificed
Into the flames they went...
Their flesh became the metal
As the bellows began to vent.
It yielded me a hammer
Made of grinding bone.
Yet when I swung this weapon
It crushed the toughest stone.
My life was paid in full that day;
With fourteen brothers dead...
I sailed alone for home
With a snarling giant's head.

Sharp claws rake into my skin
as my blood bursts forth to splatter against the ground
The uneven breathing of my foe
tells me that he too is wounded and close to death
I can see his teeth, flecked with frothing saliva
foaming and spitting as he bellows his name
He charges into me, his frame crashing with mine
the impact has me reeling and I fall back against the stone
The ground feels cold
the icy chill seeping into my bones
the warmth of my blood escapes me
and I can feel myself beginning to fade
Up toward the sky I glance
praying that I might receive assistance
I pray that he who commands me, he who stands above
Will pity his servant and relieve me of this pain...
Yet, my prayers go unheard
Here I lie, slowly fading
slowly drifting into the grey ocean
as the voice that commands me utters my fate:

After the carousel, your group went just a few feet over, to the line for the Dumbo ride.
Thor, was not too impressed, though the other little ones seemed very excited.
You picked up baby Bruce from Tony and smiled at him, which promptly made him giggle.
"Phew." Tony voiced, relieved to take a little break from holding the munchkin.
"Hello little Brucie. How are you today?" You asked the cute little baby sweetly.
He babbled some incoherent words, then motioned around as if trying to catch the wind, like he did on the carousel.
"Is that so?" You giggled and tickled his little feet, to which he squeaked happily and giggled profusely.
When you stopped tickling him, he wrapped his tiny arms around your neck in a gentle hug. "I luv you!" He said sweetly in a squeak.
You smiled and kept him close to you.
Meanwhile, Loki was becoming very jealous of tiny Bruce. It appeared, it did not take long for the little tike to become envious.

Later that day, you sat on a stone bench which overlooked the gorgeous gardens that Queen Frigga had tended to at one time.
"I'd have thought you were a princess if I didn't know better." Thor said kindly as he sat beside you.
Thor had given you a floor length, seafoam green dress, with elegant beading and soft fabric. (In order for you to look more Asgardian-like.) But, his compliments fell on deaf ears, as you were quite unhappy today.
"You're worried about Loki, aren't you?" Thor said softly with a sigh.
"I never stopped worrying really..." You admitted as you noticed the sun droop even further down.
After a few moments had passed, Thor's deep voice said, "You are permitted to come to the trial if you wish."
You took a deep breath, closing your eyes for a moment then breathing out.

"Where now?" Asked little Tasha, while you took out your map.
"I like that one, what does it do?" Thor declared, with his hands on his hips, peering over at the map.
"That's Buzz Lightyear Astro Blasters." You explained when you noticed where he was looking. "It's a shooting game. Whoever hits the most targets wins."
Thor's blue eyes lit up happily. "Let's go there!"
"Ok." You agreed with a smile, and walked with the agents and the children to the Astro Blaster line.
Loki held your hand the whole way, as was becoming common since, he was becoming very attached to you, and his new big family.

As you moved your group towards the gift shop, you introduced the little ones to their surprise.
You had gotten them each their own pair of customized mickey ears, with their name sewn on the hat beforehand. (You had left the line at Dumbo for a moment to get it done.)
The kids squealed happily and with excited eyes, reached for the Mickey ears and you gladly helped them put the hat on, thinking of how adorable they all looked. Even Coulson and you had a pair on. And Tony promised to wear his off and on.
"Do you like them?" You asked them sweetly.
"Yeah!" Natasha exclaimed and clapped her hands.
"Thank you ma'am." Steve said politely, taking care to put the military metal on his mouse ears instead of his other hat.
"These mouse ears are a strange Midgardian custom." Thor noticed with an amused smile. "But I quite like them!"

You chuckled and ruffled his brown hair a bit. "Alright." You agreed.
It took about six minutes or so to get out of Adventure Land, then walk across Main Street to get to the proper area, which held many technological and syfy type rides and stores.
"Where are we going?" Natasha asked in a squeak.
"To a large building with lots of technology in it." You answered helpfully, in terms she would understand.
When Thor, Steve, and Loki seemed to frown in dissaproval, you decided to add, "And, lots of superhero stuff."
That surely lit up their adorable faces.
"Really?! What kind?!" Steve exclaimed happily as you all went up the steep, curved ramp that lead to the entrance of the circular shaped building.

"Why did you put the chocolate in the milk? Chocolate is candy and candy doesn't belong in milk."
You chuckled. "It's good, trust me."

"I don't know...." Loki said.

As Thor messed with the tech on his end of it, unaware of your presence, Phil stood infront of the holo-translator. (Or camera.)

"Well. Thank you. But there is a friend of your's and Loki's who requests to be transported to Asgard to see both of you." Phil responded.

Jigglypuff ReportJigglypuff (the Balloon Pokemon) is a relatively rare Normal/Fairy-type Pokemon found among grassy fields within the Kanto, Johto, Hoenn, Sinnoh, Unova and Kalos regions. Adored by women for their cute appearances and unbeatable lullabies, Jigglypuff are fascinating creatures that certainly prove that you don't have to be big and powerful to be a serious threat. After all, there are few Pokemon and people out there that can fight back once they are asleep; just don't expect your singing host to treat such behavior kindly, as you're more likely to receive a Double Slap attack for your nap than anything else!Jigglypuff Report in Profiles More Like This
Although Jigglypuff possess highly elastic skin and slightly elastic organs like their pre-evolved form, they generally only use these bodily traits as secondary weapons in battle, mainly by puffing up their bodies to increase the strength of their Rollout and Gyro Ball attacks. Even so, Jigglypuff are noted for being able to store surprisingly large
Plusle ReportPlusle (the Cheering Pokemon) is a relatively rare Electric-type Pokemon found among grassy fields and meadows within the Hoenn and Kalos regions as well as the Kanto, Johto, Sinnoh and Unova regions on rare occasions. Though they are relatively weak and have little in the way of combat potential, Plusle are energetic fighters that love nothing more than cheering on their fellow combatants in Multi-Pokemon battles. If your team needs some serious moral support in the heat of battle without making your opposition too nervous, then this is definitely the Pokemon for you!Plusle Report in Profiles More Like This
To put it simply, Plusle and Minun are bizarre creatures; unlike almost all other types of Pokemon, these creatures seem to live only for the benefit of others, often times putting their own lives in danger in order to cheer on friends and teammates. They only eat berries, are completely docile, and are practically defenseless…yet at the same time, they have no known natural predators. Plusle and Minun thus re
Mareep ReportMareep (the Wool Pokemon) is a relatively common Electric-type Pokemon found among grassy plains and meadows within the Johto, Unova and Kalos regions as well as the Sinnoh region on rare occasions. Though they might not be powerful enough to pose a serious threat against most opponents, Mareep are fun-loving creatures that can make great Electric-type partners for beginning trainers if given the chance. They might not gain access to any decent electric-type attacks until close to evolution, but on the plus side, at least you won't have to wait very long for that to happen!Mareep Report in Profiles More Like This
Instead of relying on electricity-generating organs to create their electricity, Mareep actually generate and store all of their electricity within the fluffy fleece coat that grows on their bodies. This fleece has unique electrostatic properties that go beyond the normal capabilities of most wool in that it is able to build up enormous amounts of static electricity without accidenta
Cinccino ReportCinccino (the Scarf Pokemon) is a rare Normal-type Pokemon found among grassy fields within the Unova region. Prized for their luxurious fur and adorable appearance, Cinccino are interesting creatures that certainly take using their tail as a weapon to a whole new level of expertise. They might not be the strongest of fighters, but they are definitely an improvement over their pre-evolved form, Minccino; besides, where else are you going to find a Normal-type capable of using multi-strike attacks designed for plants and rocks!?Cinccino Report in Profiles More Like This
The fur of Cinccino is incredibly soft and plush because it is coated with a unique type of organic oil that is not seen in any other life form, a consequence of their exposure to the radiant energy of a Shiny Stone. The oil possesses an incredibly complex molecular structure and has thus been hard to replicate artificially, making authentic Cinccino fur easily distinguishable from fake fur; what truly makes the oil unique, however is the powers that it
Tropius ReportTropius (the Fruit Pokemon) is a rare Grass/Flying-type Pokemon found among tropical jungles and forested areas within the Hoenn and Unova regions. Though perhaps not as strong as other Grass-type Pokemon or as agile as some might like, Tropius are fascinating beasts that can easily pummel opponents on the ground and in the sky with their diverse array of Normal, Grass and Flying-type moves. Of course, if you're just looking for a quick, nutritious snack, you still might want to consider having one of these creatures; after all, if a beast loves a certain fruit so much that it actually begins to grow it, who wouldn't want to try it?Tropius Report in Profiles More Like This
It is believed that Tropius were once little more than simple herbivores that grazed on low-lying grasses and similar plants; unfortunately, it is difficult to tell whether they would have been mammalian or reptilian at this point in time, as almost all of their animalistic traits have been removed in their present form. Although it is a common belief th
Gastrodon ReportGastrodon (the Sea Slug Pokemon) is a relatively common Water/Ground-type Pokemon found around and within small tidal pools in the Sinnoh region. Although they might not be exceptionally powerful, Gastrodon are still interesting fighters that are able to put up a decent fight despite their small size. They might not seem too tough, but Gastrodon are not to be taken lightly, especially under physical assaults; they may be soft, but that doesn't mean that they can't hit hard in battle!Gastrodon Report in Profiles More Like This
Shellos and Gastrodon are mainly studied because they come in two different varieties: a pink variety (found only in the western parts of Sinnoh) and a blue variety (found only in the eastern parts of Sinnoh), each with morphological difference besides color. While this might denote separate species to some, both varieties learn the exact same attacks and techniques, they possess the same abilities, and they have the same stats; genetically, they are essentially the same species. Although it isn't comp
Whimsicott ReportWhimsicott (the Windveiled Pokemon) is a relatively rare Grass/Fairy-type Pokemon found throughout the forests of the Unova region. Inherently mischievous and difficult to fully control, Whimsicott are interesting creatures that can effectively harness the power of the winds for their own intents and purposes, though usually not for anything good. Keep a close eye on these creatures if you plan on carrying any with you on your journey, especially if you don't want any of their pranks blamed on you; the only thing these creatures do better than cause mischief is avoid the repercussions of their actions!Whimsicott Report in Profiles More Like This
Cottonee and Whimsicott are closely related to Pokemon like Hoppip and their evolutionary relatives and thus have similar lifestyles, though their offensive specialties are certainly a bit different. Cottonee and Whimsicott are plant-like Fairy-types that rely on photosynthesis for much of their energy, making sun exposure an important part of their lives; in
Spinda ReportSpinda (the Spot Panda Pokemon) is a relatively common Normal-type Pokemon found among grassy plains and volcanic environments within the Hoenn and Kalos regions as well as the Johto and Sinnoh regions on rare occasions. While they might not be the greatest of fighters out there, Spinda are adorable creatures that can certainly make great partners for beginning trainers looking to experiment with Confusion a bit in battle. It's unlikely that these small creatures will last very long in battle, but that's only sure if they can't move first; otherwise, the chances of these beasts sending opponents for a loop are too much to bear!Spinda Report in Profiles More Like This
Spinda are relatively weak and so lightweight that the slightest impact can knock them over, so their survival in the wild is effectively impossible...and would be, if it were not for their extreme penchant for Confusing others. As a way of making themselves a harder target to hit, Spinda have devolved a unique self-correcting me
Ampharos ReportAmpharos (the Light Pokemon) is a rare Electric-type Pokemon found among grassy plains and meadows within the Johto and Kalos regions as well as the Sinnoh and Unova regions on rare occasions. While they certainly might not be among the most conventional of fighters, Ampharos are fascinating beasts that can certainly give a show few trainers will forget. Granted, they might not gain access to some of their most powerful Electric-type attacks until relatively late in their life, but when your tail can shine brighter than Rudolph's nose on even a bad day, direct confrontation doesn't seem like such an issue anymore!Ampharos Report in Profiles More Like This
Evolution finally strips these creatures of what little fleece they had and reduces them to a completely bare state, but this in turn marks an interesting developmental period for the species. Although both Mareep and Flaaffy are clearly sheep by any definition of the word, Ampharos seem to tread the line between being sheep and something else
Minccino ReportMinccino (the Chinchilla Pokemon) is a relatively common Normal-type Pokemon found among grassy fields within the Unova region. Utterly adorable and tidy to a fault, Minccino are simple creatures that enjoy nothing more than cleaning, no matter what sort of situation they might be in. These critters might not be the best of fighters, but you'll have to look hard to find a better maid in the Pokemon world!Minccino Report in Profiles More Like This
Minccino are closely related to Chinchillas and are almost identical to them in terms of mental functions; in truth, their combat abilities and behavior are the only things that truly distinguish them as Pokemon. Minccino eat berries and some herbal plants as food but prefer their food as fresh as possible, making their lifestyles a bit more active than that of a normal chinchilla. They are generally quite friendly and enjoy playing around with other Pokemon, so they can certainly make great partners for young trainers. However, Minccino are somewhat weak in terms of actual physic

Dear Death...Dear Death:Dear Death... in Free Verse More Like This
This is me. I'm growing bigger and stronger every day, but still I feel like I have no place to go. You've seen me before, kicking me out of your house, screaming at me, and I stopped coming around because it felt like you bled out every time I stopped by.
I want to talk to you but you never want to talk back. I don't get it, so I'm just leaving you to be you. Isn't that what you asked for so often?
This is me.
This is me again. I think we misunderstood each other.
I'd let you in if I could find the keys, but I'm breaking down inside and out. Sorry, but I can't be having visitors right now, I'm a mess.
I finally found the keys and my confidence. You left me though, again. Why do you hate being called a loner when you constantly shove people away? Why is that? I told you I wasn't feeling well and you left me again. I don't understand why you drink yourself into oblivion, why you never want to talk, why you hate me for trying and hate me fo

"Relax, would you? The first thing you have to do when you are learning to drive is to expect the unexpected. Pretty damn simple, if you ask me."
"Lucifer, you've lived at my house for two months now. There is no unexpected to expect. I was just saying I was mildly curious as to how you can drive legally and part of me wants to know where you hitched the ride. Most of me thinks not knowing is a much better idea, though," the younger looking man, Seymore, replied.
A small laugh came from the taller, mature looking gentleman, though looks were deceiving. "I can drive legally so long as I don't get caught, but I'm not the one who is driving. You are. As for where I got the ride, let's just say she is an old friend of mine."
Lucifer patted the hood of the jet-black Ferrari and rubbed a small speck of dirt from the right headlight. Seymore knew that

What is the purpose of trying at all when you know exactly what you do-no matter how tired, weak, sick, happy, strong, healthy you feel-is never going to be good enough?Perfect is Never Good Enough in Emotional More Like This
There is no purpose other than to survive but I am not numb enough to the world around me to just live. That isn't good enough for me. Being miserable is not something I can tolerate-it hurts. I'm not numb; I just can't communicate with those who I lean on for support.
And now they are ripping their shoulders from under my head, invading the little space I have, then telling me that no matter how hard I work, it is not good enough.
I got a job.
Not good enough because it is online. Online is evil.
I have A's in college.
Not good enough because I want to go to an actual university and be away from my family. Separating one's self from family is evil.
I stay awake at night wondering what to do.
Not good enough. Not sleeping means I am abnormal, and abnormal is evil.

The rookie trainer did not want to wake up this morning which is why she used Mordisco as an eye mask to shield her eyes from the bright, shining sun. She wasn't that far from home, but she was already homesick and tired of this journey. So many stupid people everywhere she went, it was mentally tiring. It seemed like her mother was the only other smart person in this world and she was missing her.
Carmen was on the same wave length as Lailah it seemed as she too started to miss Lailah's company. Sure she had Oscuro, but Carmen preferred to talk to another human being. As soon as Carmen woke up she gave her daughter a call and Lailah, getting over the phone waking her up again, spent most of the day talking about anything that came to her mind. From pokemon to homicide, neither of them wanted to get off the phone but of course they had too. Carmen had housework to do and Lailah had the pokemon crap to do.

With two new Pokémon walking beside her, Lailah had ditched Ethan and stood at the heart of Violet City, which didn't look anything like a city. It looked more like a small town. The buildings, she noticed were all painted in dark colors and Lailah liked that. Even the Poke Center and Mart were depressing looking.
"So, according to the map, right in front of us is the gym. A guy named pfft what? Falkner? What kinda of name is that?" Lailah laughed and closed her map. "Le gasp! It's a baby boy! What will you name it? Oh hmm how about Falkner!?"
Inside the gym stood a man with brown hair and weird round hippy glasses. Brown oriental fences stood behind him, like it was blocking her way. Lailah could tell something was off with this gym and she didn't know why, nor felt like dealing with it. But, if she wanted to continue, she'd have to figure out what's going on.

"Hello and welcome to the Poke Center! We help your Pokémon get back to fighting fit. All you have to do is put them in the poke ball and give it to me."
"I'm watching you mob mule. Ceniza, get your butt it the ball." Once inside, she handed the nurse her only Pokémon.
The nurse placed the lone Poke Ball in the tray and in three seconds Ceniza was back at Lailah's side. "Here you are!" She smiled warmly.

There was a ladder that lead down to the well that Lailah was climbing down. Pushing that man in all black wasn't enough for her. Lailah desired to see his broken and bloody body lying still on the well's floor. She was a bit disappointed when groaning echoed through the well's walls, meaning the guy was still alive. Perhaps, he was fading into death and Lailah would get to watch him go into the light. She hoped so.
"Damn. You are still alive." She said with a sigh upon seeing him. "No bones poking out and barely any blood. You are a fighter aren't you? Ceniza, go find me a huge rock."
The man with a huge 'R' breathed heavy, his body racked with pain. He couldn't even move to defend himself from the heavy rock crashing down on his arms and face. "W-Wh-Why are you doing this?

I'm faced with truth i can't deny
Don't understand why You made me this way
Is it part of Your plan, or is it too late to change?
I fear that I know what they'd all say

Why is this desire in my heart and mind?

So i'm Swallowed Alive

So i keep praying week after week
I write my thoughts just to stay afloat
But Isolated, i'm so remote
Others like me DO exist
They urge me onward, help me persist
And so I'll fight to preserve my heart
True connections never break apart
Even when i'm

But now my world is breaking down
'Cause those 'above' me gasp and frown
They judge me as a pervers
Prologue: The CourierBlackthorn City's plateau glistened black, small buildings sitting like rafts over a sea of tar that billowed down the mountainside in a waterfall of quicksilver. The rains washed over the barren rock with loud splashes, falling like knives in unusually vicious weather uncommon to early August.Prologue: The Courier in Short Stories More Like This
Out on that terrace over the region of Johto, a figure clad in a rough coat two sizes too big for them hustled out into the rain, clutching a closed basket to their chest. Without hesitation or flinching at the sharp rainfall, the figure briskly sprinted to the PokeMart near the plateau's edge. Lighting flashed, revealing the tar to only be the scorched rock of the dragon-tamer's mountain, refracted by the midnight drizzle that coated this earth. The human pounded on the closed doors, confident of a savior inside due to a single lamp light from within. Drowsy-eyed, the vendor approached the door and unlocked it. "What in the blazes?

I think that's what my voice sounded like tonight, coming back from the bonfire with my church friends. I plopped down on my bed and rubbed my sore cranium, letting my pillow cradle me for support.
The light hurt my eyes, after hours of night sky being illuminated only by the bonfire. The sounds from the city around me--kids playing in Cherrygrove's fall leaves and Pokemon running around with them--only bludgeoned my brain more. Dragonair had laid curled up in a loop near the tv, and she looked up curious at my flopping back in bed.
"Andrew, you look miserable! I thought you enjoyed Autumn." She uncurled and slithered over to me, her long, lovely body like a river towards my bed. "Was the bonfire that bad?"
"Wha--? No, it was fine, r-really! Owww..." I felt another jolt through my head and pressed my hands against its sides. "I did something foolish, is all. Ate too much pumpkin bread, not enough water...the sugar went straight to my head."

Dragonair was gone this week, outside of town on some adventure with my other Pokemon. In reality, I'd gotten rather depressed at looking at life. Being a writer and adventuring young man, it always felt like, when I was separated from my friends, I was somehow lost; that not having them with me meant they didn't exist any longer. I beat myself up over that fact, the knowledge that as much as i love Dragonair, I couldn't catalog our adventures and intimate times when they didn't happen.
With the constant pressures of life overflowing, I decided to take a reprieve, to rest for a bit...but where? Solitude only ever left me lonely, and my other friends were just as tied down by school.
So as i sat down to type something, anything, I pulled up my DeviantArt page and checked my messages.
One of my friends was online, a new one as well. I clicked the name and sent her a not

The kitchen was still a bit damaged, but I almost didn't notice. I still felt so good from my sleep inside Serperior from the night before, and I knew now how to talk to both of them about their quarrel from the night before. What can I say, I hate conflict between friends, especially when they're mine, and it fills me with relief when a solution's in sight.
But that solution would have to wait, since when I approached the table, neither Arbok or Serviper were there.

I couldn't calm down, i was so excited. I was six years old, and today, September 4th, one long, agonizing month after my birthday, my momma Mary said i could go and do it! I got to be like my friends at first grade, to catch a Pokemon!
Mommy just smiled, her face is so pretty when she does that happy smile, she says i give it to her a lot but i don't see her all the time so i don't know always. I ran over to the window where my mommy's friend Hootoot perched, sleeping. "Hootie, Hootie wake up! Wake up!" I reached out to ruffle the feathers of my friend, who was napping too much for such a wonderful day.
But mommy caught my arms in her soft hands and said "No, Andrew, hold on there. You know what i've told you about Hootie, you can't wake him during the day. He's nocturnal, remember?"
"Oh, yeah, sorry..." I didn't really get why Hootie's knocking on things

The whole place is more exotic than my usual hotspots of Johto and Kanto, the regions i generally visit when i'm in the world of Pokemon. But I decided to try something new by visiting the southern continent, just for a change of pace. And BOY did I have a great time!
The whole place has a lot more diversity of landscape, a rolling field of grass becomes a rolling sea in just a few miles. Within a day's walk of each other are volcanic mountains, shaded forests, and an actual desert rich with ancient fossils!
But without a doubt, my favorite part was getting to see her again.
I'm Damian, an all-around adventurer through and through, traveling where life takes me and making the most of it. And the most usually comes from my sweet experiences with Pokemon, one in particular.
Over in Johto i've twice been visited by an elusive and beautiful Pokemon...the lovely Latias, a dragon whose longevity lets it live for thousands of y
Mary's StorySo we got home, and I was calmed down already. All the way back (which was only five minutes or so) i felt like i was flying inside of Dragonair because her tummy felt lighter than air but just as warm and comfy, like a squishy cloud. I was okay now, more than ok, because i knew she liked me and i wanted her to come back to my house. But i didn't know why she ever had to leave.Mary's Story in Short Stories More Like This
That's why we went back to my house, to ask Mommy to tell us the story. Mommy didn't have to go work at the jim today because the lead bird trainer at the jim was gone so no one could challenge it. I don't know how to challenge somebody named jim but Mommy says it happens all the time.
I heard a doorbell ring and i knew it was mine, so Dragonair had probably poked it with her nose! That made me giggle a little, which echoed in her belly and Dragonair giggled too because i tickled her.
Mommy answered the door. "Hello?" I heard her say, then she gasped and sounded really surprised. "Oh my...it, it really is you, i

I know, after all the times i've mentioned the joys of nature it may sound hypocritical to use the outdoors for wargames.But just because I like nature doesn't mean i'm not willing to disturb it with a little fun competition! Pokemon, I love. But Airsoft games...well, let's just say i really, REALLY like!
The only problem is finding people to play against. Crossroads is full of some wonderful people and awesome athletes, but gathering enough for a full-on tournament is a bit difficult. Everyone's always busy this time of year with spring cleaning (which i should probably do...) or preparing for the last long haul in school, but I, A, personally love breaking the tension every once in awhile.
And don't get me wrong, there are other forms of stress-relief i use. Most of you guys are probably aware of my main one, those tender moments with my serpentine friends

You weren’t aware of the fact that you had fallen asleep until you opened your suddenly exhausted eyes and shifted your gaze to the side so that you were able to get a glimpse of the digital clock on your nightstand, surprised to find that it was already 6 p.m. Looking down, you were able to spot the picture frame lying face-down on the floor, and with a slightly trembling hand, you picked it up.
Getting into a sitting position, you stared down at the picture of you and your childhood friend and recalled the dream you had. Why, out of all times, right when you were grieving over the parting of that boy, did you have a dream about one of the moments the both of you had together? Thinking back to what he said, you realized that throughout your elementary, middle, and high school years, you had not made a single friend. When you left your old elementary school and entered your new one, you were very shy and known by the students in your grade simply as “the new kid.” You

It was two weeks after you had treated America's stomach pains that you had to attend yet another meeting. A part of you was actually a bit excited to go, and once you had this thought, you quickly became surprised. You usually weren't very happy to go to a meeting and were more often than not reluctant to go, and you rather would've spent the day at home taking a nap or something instead of waking up at 3 in the morning and going off to some country. You suddenly wondered what caused you to get a sudden change of emotion, but you didn't pay much attention to it as you prepared to head off to the meeting.
Another shock came to you when you arrived at the building where the conference was going to be held and you realized that you had arrived a whole hour early. This was a surprise to you, since you rarely seemed to arrive on time and more often than not were in a rush just because you were late, not because you just wanted to be there.
When you arrived at the floor where

The next morning, you prepared Matthew his breakfastonce again pancakes with maple syrup, just like he askedand dressed him in another pair of white ruffled clothing from your childhood before you told him that the both of you were going outside to get him some new clothes.
You held Matthew in your arms as you made your way out the door, instantly feeling the fresh, cool wind beat against your face and flow through your hair. You turned around and shut the door behind you before securely locking it. When you looked down at Matthew, you noticed that his eyes were sparkling in excitement.
"Are you excited to go into town, Mattie?" you asked him sweetly.
He nodded before he buried his face in your shirt. "Yes, Mama."
Thankfully, you knew where the nearest children's clothing store was, and that was only a few blocks down from your home. Matthew was still a baby, but he already knew how to walk, so you didn't have to carry him for most of the trip to the shop. However, when the

"Mama, Mama! Wake up, wake up!"
You were woken from your peaceful sleep by the feeling of tiny hands fiercely shaking your shoulders and the excited sounds of a familiar voice. You let out a low moan before you shielded your closed eyes with your hand and turned over onto your side, trying to fall back asleep. You were grateful when the hands removed themselves from your shoulders and you were no longer being shaken.
That is, until you felt something rather heavy start to jump on top of you. "Mama, wake up!"
"A-Ahhh!" you gasped as your eyes instantly flew open. You quickly rolled over so that your back was pressed against the mattress and got up into a sitting position so that you were no longer being jumped on. "I'm awake, I'm awake..." you grumbled before you rubbed your sleepy eyes with your hand and let out a somewhat loud yawn.
As soon as you removed your hand from your eyes and blinked a few times, getting them to adjust to the bright sunlight that streamed through the curtains

You had ended up staying in the nurse’s office for the majority of the day, getting out only a few minutes before the end of the school day. A part of you was glad that you spent the day in there, since it gave you an excuse to skip most of your classes and an opportunity to gain a few extra hours of sleep. Another thing you were glad about was that Gilbert left the office shortly after the both of you had come to the agreement that you were only going to treat each other as acquaintances. You hoped that this meant he was no longer going to be pestering you and trying to get your attention because he wanted to be friends with you. You hoped that after this, he would really stop annoying you as much as he had before, maybe even leave you alone altogether. Because honestly, you would've been totally happy if he was completely out of your life and you never had to see or deal with him again.
At first, Gilbert wanted to stay with you in the infirmary until you were allowed to leave,

Ever since that day when you had revealed your injuries in front of Gilbert, you made sure to stay as far away from him as possible at all times. There were some occurrences when you were walking down the hallway that you detected his presence and heard him attempting to get your attention, but you just simply ignored him. Now that he knew the full extent to what his bullying had done to you, you wanted absolutely nothing to do with him anymore. You were just going to put everything that happened between the both of you throughout these past three years to the back of your head and move on with your life. Instead, you were going to focus on things that were more important at the moment, such as finding a way to take all of your spring exams without failing any of them.
Now, it was nearly three weeks since you had last talked to Gilbert, and by this point you were aware of how easier your life became now that you no longer had to deal with one of your biggest problems. You no longer spe

I don’t know whether I should be happy and relieved or depressed and terrified...
Once she finds out, she’s probably going to kill me...!
You sat on the edge of your bed, staring down at the photo of you and your best friend with exhausted, worn out eyes. It was already well into the evening, you still had not eaten dinner, and all afternoon you had done nothing but sit on your bed and contemplate over everything that had happened in school that day.
One thing was clear: You were never brining any precious things to school with you ever again.
But everything else...you found confusing and somewhat disturbing. The fact that you were once again bullied by a group of boys and one of them almost burn your most beloved childhood photo sent emotional triggers inside you that almost made you want to break down in tears.
You thought back to what one of the boys said, about how the child in the

You were barely able to get any sleep last night, the realization that Gilbert was your cherished childhood best friend keeping you awake for the majority of the night. During that time, you were able to feel anger and an unusual surge of energy gather strength inside you, though you weren’t ready to let it out just yet. You thought before that there would've been nothing to make you reveal your true emotions, your true fury in front of Gilbert, but now you had a force that drove you to do just what you have wanted to do ever since he began to bully you.
And that was payback. Both physical and emotional.
It was a fairly cloudy and humid day the next morning as you made your way to school. You felt the rapid beating of your heart in your chest and you anticipation of seeing Gilbert grow with every step. You kept your gaze and head lowered, and some of your hair fell in front of your face enough so that it was able to cover your eyes. The expression on your face was completely void

You let out a low moan as you closed your eyes, leaning back so that your back was pressed against the chair you were sitting in.
By the time the lunch period ended, you had still been lying sprawled out on the cafeteria floor after Gilbert had punched your empty stomach. Your mind had been spinning, you had wanted to vomit, and you had felt like you were going to pass out from the nauseating pain you had been feeling. Nobody ever seemed to notice you lying on the floor clutching your stomach with a slightly twisted face, since nobody ever came around the lunch table you were sitting at. Even after all the kids left the room and headed to their next period, you were in so much pain that it was barely possible for you to let out a small cry of help. Luckily, a janitor that had been cleaning up after that period had spotted you lying on the floor and carried you to the school nurse, a trip which seemed like hours to you.
Now you were sitting in the exceptionally small waiting room, still

You let out a low moan as you struggled to open your eyes. The first thing you were aware of at that moment was the feeling of your head being pressed against what felt like a pillow and a dull, aching pain throughout your face. You were also able to detect that your nose was wrapped with something that felt like soft cloth. It took a few moments of you lying there quietly for you to finally realize what had happened. You had been in the gym playing the dreaded terror game known as basketball when you looked up to find the ball heading straight towards your face. You figured it must’ve knocked you unconscious, because you had no memory of the events that happened after you felt the ball make impact with your face.
You gritted your teeth as you once again attempted to open your eyes, squinting against the unbelievably bright light that filled them. Once you were able to get them to more or less focus, you propped your elbows up on whatever it was that you were lying on and feebly
