Her hand was over her minor belly and she felt a little hungry.
"Sil-" she was cut off because Silver was already next to her before she could even finish his name.
"Ver...can you get me something to eat?" she said as almost acting like a child.
"Sure, what do you need?" Silver asked.
"Hmm...some crakers and milk." she said still sounding like a child.
"Ok!" he exclaimed.

Things were normal, obviously her belly grew a few inches further.
Sonic once came over to see how both of them were doing.
When Sonic looked at Blaze, the first thing he said was, "Did you eat a basketball?"
But as always, Sonic was always a good jokster and they laughed about it.
Blaze was alright.
She didn't walk much due to the new extra weight, and Silver sometimes had to help her around.
She usually didn't go into her ecstasy mood swings anymore, but she did get angry pretty easily.
Sometimes it would be Sonic making another one of his dumb jokes; or that her feet hurt; or that she couldn't reach something could cause her to get frustrated.
It was always up to Silver to stop the problem like telling Sonic that maybe he should go home; or rubbing her feet; or getting her what she couldn't reach. Most of the time, that would help.
Silver was fine too.
He still was usually near Blaze if she needed anythi

He pointed up to his master computer.

Blaze usually got tired quickly and usually had to have Silver hold onto her arm or rarely carry her at times. Silver delt with it, but along with Blaze, he got tired quickly too.
Silver usually had to fetch things for Blaze. Knowing she couldn't walk far distances, he would usually have to go shopping for her. Which was usually very embarrasing when he had to shop for women's clothes and undergarments. But even through all the embarrasing times, Silver still kept oath to himself that he would help Blaze through thick and thin.
Silver plopped onto the couch next to Blaze. He looked like he had been working in a mine field.
"What's wrong Silver?" Blaze asked holding his hand.
Silver turned his head to her with an exhausted look on his face, "I'm just really tired."
"Aw..." she said moving closer to him. "Would you feel better if we cuddle?" she said leaning on his should moving her head up and down.

"I'm such an idiot..." he thought to himself.
An hour had passed and Silver got up to test his foot. He wrigled his toes a bit and tried standing on the foot he just hurt. It felt much better, but he was to clumsy to keep his balance and fell.
"Darn!" he thought aloud.
His ears twitched a bit. He stood up. Crying?
His ears followed him to the source of the crying and that lead him to his and his lover, Blaze's, bedroom.
He knocked on the door and called, "Blaze?" The crying stopped. "Is everything alright in there?" he said.
He tried the door. Locked.
"Blaze speak to me, Is everything alright in there?" he began to worry.
He could hear the door being unlocked and he stood back. The door opened an inch and part of Blaze's face could be seen. She had tears in

Blaze still wasn't showing much though.
She told Silver the baby wouldn't start showing until about four months.
Silver always helped her with anything she needed. Such as using his telekinetic powers to get things from high places; getting her certain types of food when she had her cravings; and so on.
"Hey Blaze!" Silver called.
"Yeah?" she called back.
"I'm going over to Sonic's place. I haven't seen him a while so I want to catch up with him on some stuff." he explained.
"Alright, hurry back." she answered.
Silver was about to leave when he slamed into the door. He forgot to open it.
"What was that?" he heard Blaze call.
"Oh...ow...nothing!" he called back.
He opened the door this time and left.

She was now six months along and she started to show a lot more now.
Her ecstasy mood swings didn't happen very often, but maybe once in a while.
Blaze was getting a little fussy on what gender her and Silver's child would be.
"Silver, I really want to know if our child will be a boy or a girl!" Blaze exclaimed.
She would say that at least twice a day.
At first Silver just said to be patient.
But now it was sort of a bother.
"Fine, fine, we'll go to the doctor." Silver finally said.
"Thank you, that's all I wanted." Blaze said.
Silver and Blaze went walking to the hospital.
But Blaze was getting tired with the new extra weight.
She quickly found the nearest bench and took a rest.
Silver sat next to her.
"Hmm, this might be a problem." he said rubbing his chin. "I got it, hop on my back, I'll carry you!" Silver said smiling.
Blaze's eyes widened.

"Ohh...what happened Blaze?" Silver asked.
"You fainted." she said with a relieved smile.
"So it's true Blaze, are you really pregnant?" Silver asked.
Blaze looked down and blushed. "...yes..."
Blaze then was suprised to feel a tight squeezing around her abdominal area and saw Silver kissing her stomach. "Oh thank you, thank you, thank you for giving me a chance like this Blaze!"
"So you're happy about this baby?" Blaze asked very surprised.
"Of course I am!" he exclaimed. "Why were you crying though?"
"I was scared...that you might leave or lose your feelings for me of you found out." she said.

"Blaze! Oh Blaze! Please wake up! Blaze!" he chanted her name over and over again and shook her. Tears of sadness and anger started forming. "Blaze...please..." he colaspsed. She wouldn't answer. He hugged her by the neck as tears streamed from his eyes onto her forehead.
"No, Blaze, please don't let it end like this! Please wake up!" he squeezed her tight against his chest fur.
"Huh? Blaze?" he asked as tears still dripped off his face.
"Pain..." she repeated.
"Blaze, oh great Iblis, you almost scared me to the point of death!" He squeezed her tight.
"Pain...pain!" she repeated.

It didn't matter who ran what company, what city, what COUNTRY. Trace it all backwards through the underground channels, and eventually it all came back to her.
But it wasn't an iron fisted rule...nor was it for the betterment of mankind. She enjoyed watching the human struggle, as wars were fought, and any number of other events occured. Watching humanity scurry like so many ant colonies, knowing how easily she could bring it all to an end with a few well placed words...

I have made a rather drastic decision. I did not get approval from Azrael for this. I fear I may incur his displeasure for this. Even so, I will not reverse this decision, whatever the consequences, and any who would try to circumvent my will in this will have to pry my scythe from my cold, dead fingers.
Mandy's hourglass has run out of sand, and I am going to do...nothing. I will not attempt to add sand to her hourglass, and I will not take her head. The universe says she should be dead now, but the universe hasn't taken me into account.
I've cast a spell over her hourglass. While there is still no sand in it, so long as I do not hold the hourglass, the universe will take her into account, where otherwise the force of history would attempt to erase her.
This is a great wrong against the Duty, to not take someone who has passed their time. But I do not care.

all too constantly watch the world
that they believe had nothing for them.
Tears form, but no one sees,
no person even bothers to look,
yet it isn't like they don't notice.
When someone finally looks
and actually sees for once
they utter those few words,
that can change so much.
Are you okay?
The tear stained face looks up
and knows it's been seen
with a blink though
the tears are gone.
The voice breaks,
but it is overlooked
as nothing important.
"Stop! I'm not okay!"
The internal voice screams,
but the silent mental call
is heard by no one.
And the crying form
that so brokenly said it was fine
is left to cry once more.
UndeservedI don't deserve to be an artist.Undeserved in Free Verse More Like This
I don't know how to hold deep meaningful conversations with strangers.
I don't lament at night about a lover I have lost.
I don't watch the white smoke ebb into darkness.
I don't spend lonely nights admiring the true beauty of the world.
I don't sleep restlessly from the truth of suffering within this world.
I don't lie through my smiles or struggle to create them.
But I do think I am a writer.
I am completely, irreparably damaged.
I cry all night over old words and emotional baggage.
I weep over my lost innocence.
I spend nights wishing for skin against my own
I long for insomnia to inspire me.
I beg for worlds to collide so I can breathe.
So am I writer really?
Or just another misguided artist?
You call it Judgement, We call it SinEmily needs the words to understand that she isn't being unreasonable. She just wants them to mean something and not be a string of words which flows into itself over and over again.You call it Judgement, We call it Sin in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
She doesn't like her name either. Not because Emily isn't a pretty name but because she would rather be called something she feels like. (She has never quite forgiven her parents for choosing her name for her.) If she could, she would call herself Glass, because that is what she wakes up feeling like every morning. As if crystallised pieces of glass are edible and her insides tingle as she swallows them whole.
Emily lets the words call her names sometimes. She writes them on her knees so that she can remember them. Sometimes the words call her a whore, and sometimes stupid, and sometimes a loser and sometimes a tramp (She has never learnt that loving too much is a crime and boys with pretty eyes sometimes lie.). She sits in the bathroom with a pen the colour of blood and writes them carefully

Because they say that for every single boy who counts the stars, there is a little girl who is wishing upon one. (And they never mention what happens after the stars fade into morning and the other falls into oblivion)
Because they say that people fall in love when the time is right, they are true to each other and are ready to be together. (But no one ever mentions how she is so damaged she can barely think, and he is so cynical that he may never be ready.)
Because they insist that your soulmate is going to be a good, kind, caring human being who will love you from the bottom of their hearts. (This is due to the fact that even if there is someone for everyone, bad people are immune to the soulmate theory.)
Because they always have a happy ending (And real life begins after the sun has set and she has realized that he may not be everything she hoped for and he begins to have second thoughts about commitment.)

She tried to pretend the bread she had in the mornings was ice cream flavoured, and even imagined her little brother had never been taken from them but had been enthralled and forever lost in Neverland. When she tried to explain this to her mother, her mother would look away quietly, and sometimes, rise with a quiet shudder...and leave the room.
For a little girl who had the hope of the world resting quite easily on her head as a crown, she knew. She knew that one day, he would come for her and maybe, maybe they could be together again like they were in her dreams.

A Little Bit of WonderlandHer name was Alyssa, and when she was nine, her mother built her Wonderland. After being raised on a healthy diet of Charles Dickens, Enid Blyton and J.M. Barrie, it seemed like the natural course of action. She created it out of paper, each scene indispensably, indisputably perfect in its imperfection.A Little Bit of Wonderland in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
And she did it because Alyssa was terrified of the idea of falling through a rabbit hole, into a place that allows magic only when you are confused. Mothers do the most impractical, exhausting things to show how much they love their children. It seemed a pity that it was this very effort that kept Alyssa up all night, staring at the paper people like they were coming to get her.
(If Alyssa’s mother knew, she would have spent all her time trying to explain to the little girl that it wasn’t just paper people she should be afraid of.)
God appeared to have a sense of humour when little Alice became Alyssa’s best friend. She lives across the street, her hair always

My mind always turns dreams into nightmares.
My lungs contract too soon for me to catch my breath.

My brain feels overworked, overwrought, so tired.
My stomach cramps every night and I curl up in pain.
My knees weaken often but I'm still standing.

New Kid Again
It was a dreary Monday morning, as all Mondays appeared to be in the minds of students and teachers alike. The beginning of a new week, of days of learning and waking early to arrive at the building of the smiting of ignorance. Robby had never liked Mondays, for obvious reasons but also for others. For one, her brother, Sam, had been in a horrible car accident on a Monday. She could remember getting called home from school because her brother was in the ICU and could possibly die. That had been one of the worst days of her life and it was hard to believe it was only two years ago. Also, it had been on a Monday that her parents had officially gotten divorced. She and her brother lived with their mom now. Her brother's wreck had been one of the only things to bring her parents together, and she could still remember them fighting in the waiting room while she sat there, terrified that she would become an only child far too soon.
Mondays were the bane of her exi

Turning Down Cheesecake
Emery had to admit that Derek was starting to scare him. And not in the good way where his friend was hyper. No, Derek was unusually quiet, even for him, and had only left him alone to use the bathroom and get food and drinks. Emery was itching to run. He didn't like to be watched so closely. Derek was acting like a mother-hen. Emery knew his friend was prone to moments of "caring" and "looking out" for others, but this was getting ridiculous. So he'd had a black out again--big deal. It had happened before and there was no doubt it would happen again in the future. He wasn't so sure what his friend was worried about but that crease in Derek's brow had yet to go away.
Plus he hadn't been yelled at yet. That wasn't a good omen. Usually when Derek was angry or upset with something or someone, he heard about it right away--also because it tended to be about him half the time. He had a knack for pissing his friend off. But after fourteen years of frie

Time to Explain
Prowling outside of Emery's room probably made him look like some creeper, but Derek didn't really care. Pacing was too gentle of a word for the long, pronounced strides he was taking. Emery had blacked out in the strangest way possible. He had passed out like the before, of course, but not in a while now, and usually never so intensely. Derek had dragged his friend back to the house, the only thing he could think to do, and May had quickly ushered them inside. Derek had asked if they should go to the hospital but May had shaken her head and said that he would wake on his own like he always did. She had also said, though, that if he didn't wake by the next morning, they were going to have to take him to the hospital to get checked out because maybe Marouq had caused some damage or something.
It shocked him, still, to know that May knew of the Other Side. She had learned about it the day Emery's mom had been put in the hospital

"Yes," Emery growled. "It is! Especially when it's you!"
"You know what they say like father like son," Marouq said with a grin. "You are just like me, Emery--you just don't know it yet, son, but soon you will."
Emery snarled something under his breath and Robby just looked terrified and overly confused. Sam looked intrigued and yet edgy, as though he were worried, which he had every right to be. Derek swallowed thickly, struggling to think of what to do or say.
"Now, as for why I brought you here," Marouq continued. "I believe it's time for father and son to be reunited." He stepped forward. "Will you join me, my son?"
"Hell no," Emery snapped, glaring even as Derek's stomach twisted uneasily. "Why would you possibly think I would?"
"Oh, I don't believe I was actually giving you a choice," Marouq said as his eyes flashed, the crimson, blood-red color becoming more pronounced. Derek kept his hold on Emery's shoulder as though to ground him and keep him

Robby held her little brother close to her chest and struggled to breathe through the frantic fear that had her heart racing and her mind spinning. Above her beckoned a burning red sky, the sun set low and somewhat behind the mountains far off in the distance. Her heart stuttered quickly as Sam looked around in amazement, held tightly in her arms. She held him as though he was the only link to reality, the only physical hold she had as she stared at Emery and Derek, who were sharing looks. Emery shrugged as though a silent message had passed between them, and then glanced at her.
"I didn't want it to happen this way," he said to her slowly, shrugging in a 'what-can-you-do?' sort of way before he rubbed nervously at the back of his neck. "But welcome, Robby."
Robby stared at him with wide, ample eyes, sure she would pass out soon from how quickly her heart was racing. "W-What?"
"Welcome to the Other Side."

Robby didn't necessarily hate her first day, but she didn't enjoy it either. As she found out, she shared three classes with Emery Roland, the boy that had been drawing in her first hour class of Etymology, and also three classes with Derek, the blonde boy that had also been there. Each class she had Emery in, Derek was there too. She also saw a few of the people that had been at their lunch table. For the life of her, though, she couldn't figure out why it mattered to her one way or the other. Why was she seemingly fascinated by them? Maybe it was because of their actions in first period. Maybe it was because they seemed painfully familiar to her somehow, even though she couldn't for the life of her figure out why. Maybe she was just going crazy.
Gunny's words kept ringing through her head about how she couldn't become their friend. She hadn't really asked why after a certain point and Gunny hadn't elaborated much, but usually that was okay with her. For some

Emery got up and ready for school an hour earlier than usual. Not by choice, really, but because his head was hurting and the pain had woken him, and despite the fact that all he wanted to do was lay down for a while longer, he forced himself to go ahead and get up and shower. Toweling his body dry, he pulled on a pair of pants and exited the bathroom, shirtless. Steam followed after him as beads of water and sweat dampened his forehead. That bathroom got hot rather quickly, but then again, that was what happened when it was such a small room.
He liked it when the house was quiet. Contrary to popular belief, he did like being alone at times, but that was nearly impossible what with the others and Derek living at the house, along with his aunt There always seemed to be someone around. So sometimes, he liked getting up earlier than everyone else so that he could have some peace and quiet and time to himself. He loved his friends, of course he did and

The Other Side
Derek and Emery stood there quietly for a moment, watching as Robby stood there in shock, not even blinking, probably not even breathing as she held Sam tight to her chest. Derek had to admit that it was kind of fun being on this end of it--but in the beginning, he'd been on the receiving end and it hadn't been fun at all. Emery gave him a look and then shrugged. Derek jerked his head at Robby, signaling for him to say something. Emery looked at her, a faint smile twitching on his lips. "I didn't think it would happen this way," he said, his voice sincere even though he looked amused at the expression on Robby's face, "but welcome, Robby."
Robby just stared. "W-What?"
"Welcome to the Other Side." The way the words rolled off of Emery's tongue had chills slithering through Derek's spine. They were ominous and good-humored all at once--a feat only Emery seemed to be able to accomplish. Robby just kept staring at them without looking away or blinking. Derek w

Derek's jaw clenched as he listened to Emery reveal to Robby and the others that she was one of them. Of course, he was sure the others had figured it out earlier when Emery had been telling about his black outs and how they happened when new Siders were around him. He wondered if the others had come to the same conclusion as him--that Robby had to join them, and if she didn't, she would ultimately be dooming Emery
Robby's eyes were wide as she stared at Emery. "W-What?" she spluttered like a fish out of water.
"You're one of us," Emery repeated. "It fits. I couldn't figure out why I was getting those black outs and then with the one I had yesterday, I knew it could only be from one thing, and that's you. You're a Sider, like us."
"You're crazy," Robby said, shaking her head. "I'm not one of you. I'm not like you!"
Derek narrowed his eyes. "Only a rare few have become Siders," he said, almost repeating what Emery had said previously. "You're on

She began heading for the extreme paintball arena for target practice, not that she needed any, but it helped calm her down.

When Finn arrived at school, he saw a new student. He looked just like Simon, but his hair was combed neatly and he was wearing a maroon button up shirt, black jeans, and dark red sneakers.
Finn didn't get what was going on, so he waited until lunch to talk to Simon about the new guy.
"So you saw a new student who looked just like me?" Simon asked, making sure he understood what Finn said.

"Depends," Simon said with a shrugged. "Did he have the same body type and facial features or was he wearing the same outfit?"
"The first one," Finn recalled.
