"Of course, Sou."
The little boy calmly walked to his father's side, small hand instantly coming up to clutch at his father's ever-bandaged fingers. He turned a serious expression to the older brunette—an expression Sou had definitely gotten from his daddy—and asked, "Why do you go to the memorial every day?"
Sasuke's eyes widened fractionally at the question. Of course, his son was very sharp. That was a trait both he and Sakura had given to all of their children and he could not be more grateful. But after years of explaining away his absence in the early mornings, that was a question he hadn't expected.
"You wanna know why I go to the memorial huh?" he echoed, a mysterious smile taking root on his pale lips. He looked up from the boy to gaze out the window he was standing just in front of; the window with the perfe

The greeting echoed emptily off the small apartment walls, no one there to hear it but him. Dust covered everything in a fine layer again... Had he really been gone that long? A month didn't feel so far away anymore.
Cerulean eyes wandered aimlessly over the sparse furniture, picking out individual pieces of dust floating in the shafts of light created by the blinds covering his window. Everything was the same as he'd left it, nothing out of place; not that he had expected any less.
The blonde sighed heavily, slouching back against the door he had just entered through. Still the same... Which went for everything. Same village, no troubles. Same drive and still no Sasuke.
His breaths were heavy with remorse and defeat as Naruto gazed emptily out through those broken window eyes. He had failed once more to bring his friend back. It was nothing new, but the wound still wept crimson tears.
Every mission had been such a strain on him lately. It didn't matter how simpl

Sasuke looked over his head with a smile as he felt strong arms come up over his shoulders from behind. Naruto looked like he had just awoken--circles under his eyes not yet faded, eyes glassy, hair a bit of a mess. But he was smiling the most beautiful smile the man had ever seen.
"Just finishing up some last minute paperwork so we can have the rest of our vacation to ourselves," he replied in a contented hum, accepting the gracious, lazy kiss that was pressed to his lips. His chest hummed while his skin sang pleasantly of the touch.
"Well then hurry up and come back to bed," Naruto languidly returned. "I'm feelin' lazy and I got some things I think I need to give ya." His tone was sultry and sleepy and everything perfect in Sasuke's world.
Before the blonde could slip his arms back off of Sasuke's shoulders, the older man caught his left hand and brought it back to his lips. He gave the blonde a meaningful, upside-down

For you, it was a fantastic opportunity to learn about a village you had always been enamored with. As a Konoha native, you had grown up hearing about the Village Hidden in the Sand. From merchants’ tales, to tales from the foot soldiers stopping in the Leaf after traversing the desert, you had heard a fine amount about the exotic extravagance of the village. It more than piqued your interest to hear about the spice vendors and merchants toting carpets and tapestries. To you, it seemed like a different world.

His hand moved of its own volition, reaching shakily for his lover's face. When it made contact with skin it was already far too cold, fingers not responding the way the once skilled shinobi knew he should have managed. But in the face of something so helpless, he supposed he really didn’t care.
Naruto sobbed hard again, clutching at the Jonin's blood-soaked hand, tears pouring down his face and marring his vision. He didn't have the words to say; didn’t have the strength to save him. He couldn’t do anything but sit there and cry.

"Yes, Naruto?" The older man's voice was subdued as he gazed past the memorial in front of them, eyes not really seeing the names or the stone, but the faces that belonged to them. He did not shift from his stance, hands in his pockets, head bowed slightly.
The silence stretched between them as the blonde contemplated his words, wind tousling his hair. He had an image to keep now, didn’t he? It was due for a cut soon, he realized absently, azure eyes not really seeing anything. It was getting long enough that it would be in his face if it wasn’t so naturally unruly.

Arms pumping frenetically, the orange and blue blur streaked down the long, seemingly never-ending hallway, trying desperately to reach the door at its far end. It seemed that everything was moving in slow motion expect for him; he was running, expending plenty of energy trying to reach that door, but the hall was passing him at a languid, unassuming pace.

The boys voice cut right through his, a smile on his face. "Tell me one thing right now, Alek" he looked Alek square in the eye, and he gulped, gripping hte fabricated leather that bound him into the seat, his knuckles white. "Do you trust me?"
Of course he trusted Dylan. He had kept Alek's secrets since they met. But this was not a matter of trust, it was a matter of life or death, or so it felt to Alek.
"Yes. I trust you." he told Dylan earnestly.
"Then listen to me when I say you'll be fine." he patted the yellow object in Alek's hand. "Just release this semaphore flag if something goes wrong, or if you get the clart scared out of you." Dylan smirked. "I'll be down here watching and I'll haul you down in a squick."
And with that Alek was climbing, no, flying. The small seat he was strapped to swung sickeningly as the godless creature Dylan called a Huxley rose into the air. Alek barely dared to watch as Dylan and the top of the Leviathan
Chapter 10 'Monotony'The port was bustling, people of all ages were filling the walkways, there was barely room to breathe.

But he didn't stop to complain, if they didn't hurry they would miss their boat.Chapter 10 'Monotony' in Short Stories More Like This
At long last they made it, just as passengers were boarding. It was a large vessel, probably larger than the Leviathan, length-wise. They hurried up the ramps, handed their tickets over, and boarded.
Alek and Deryn contained themselves to their cabin for most of the trip, not wanting to get noticed in case someone had a keen eye. The trip was scheduled to be three weeks, so they had plenty of time to plan their next move.
"I can't wait to get off this barking ship" Deryn complained, only three days in. "The water is not the most entertaining way to travel. At least on the Leviathan I had things to do besides sit on my bum in a room all da

His eyes slowly got used to the murky darkness and he noticed the ceiling above him was made of crude stone. Water was dripping from it and onto the floor beneath him, which he guessed was stone as well, judging by the craggy surface under his body. He wanted to sit up but his arms were so heavy he couldn't even budge them.
Where am I?, Alek thought to himself, his thoughts still thick. It felt like his head was floating in water, bobbing around like a piece of driftwood. He honestly did not know where he could possibly be. The last thing he remembered was being on board the Leviathan talking to, to....

She swore she just heard a gun shot. The sound was unmistakeable. Deryn slowly opened the door and peered both ways. The hall was deathly silent and dark. Her feet made little sound as she padded shoeless down the hall and in the direction she thought she'd heard them go an hour ago.
Deryn encountered no one as she glided along, keeping ot the shadows. Blisters, this place is confusing, she thought ot herself as she rounded a corner. It seemed there was no end to the twisting corridors. Portraits stared down at her, as if tracking her every move. She shuddered. The sooner they were out of this place the better.
But what would happen after this? The Leviathan was dead, she had no money to return home. She was stranded somewhere far from home with the archduke of Austria-Hungary.

"Deryn, have you read the paper yet?" he called out. Footsteps sounded from the other room, and Deryn entered. She was wearing trousers and a buttoned up shirt, hair cropped short as ever.
"No, why? Something good?" her eyes were bright.
"Yes, actaully, I think you'll find it amusing." he handed her the news, crossing his arms and watching her as she read the front page.
Her face went from curiosity to astonishment. "Blisters, Alek, your a genious! How did you know?" she looked up at him, amazed.
Alek chuckled. "I know Volger about as well as I know myself. The wildcount gets what he wants. He wasn't going to let a little thing like my 'death' stop him from finishing the wishes of my father. Volger is a loyal man, I suspected he might go this far."

After a few failed attempts, Alek gave up on counting sheep, and counted the stars instead. He hadn't been in Austria in so long, and now that he was back, he felt a strange kind of peace. He was home.
The sky was outrageously beautiful, the stars glittering against their black backdrop. There was a faint glow on the horizion from the city, but it didn't disrupt the gorgeous view. He played with Deryn's hair, watching her sleep. She looked so peaceful. His heart leapt when he touched her skin, her face completely blocking out any pretty night sky. She was beautiful, her features strong and sharp. He chuckled. Her name fit her so well.

The fire crackled nicely in front of him, drowsiness threatening to take over again. He stood and stretched, then headed out the door of his quarters. Someone ran into him just then, nrealy sending him flying.
"Watch it! - Oh! Sorry Dad!" the young boy ran to Alek and hugged him. Alek laughed and ruffled the boy's hair.
"Where exactly are you headed off to in such a rush, Jaspert Volger?" Alek asked, holding the boys shoulders.
"Out to the courtyard. Master Klopp told me he would let me take a few steps around in the runabout today!"
Alek studied his son's excited face. He looked so much like his mother, sharp fine features and bright blue eyes, but dark hair like his father. His eyes sparked with excitement, and his smile was as charming as anything.
"Alright, get along now. Remember, you've got a few lessons this evening with Dr. Barlow tonight"
Little Jaspert sighed, looking annoyed.

There were at least five hundred people in attendance, most of them sobbing their damned eyes out. Alek shook his head. He was only duke for a few months, had he earned the right to have tears shed over him?
Alek winced as he took his seat next to Deryn. The wound Volger had given him still felt fresh as the day he had recieved it. Dr. Barlow sat on Dery's right, dabbing at her eyes under the black veil cascading from her outrageous hat.
He took Deryn's hand, and she gave it a squeeze. This was going to be difficult. No matter how insane Volger had gotten, or how terrible he had been to Alek as a child, he had been there, and had sacrificed many things to make sure Alek got his chance, even his life.
Alek had found out that day that Volger and Klopp were the only two to have made it out of the Leviathan's crash. Volger must have mistaken Alek's body for Bauer's charred corpse, and Klopp had lost a leg. He sat a f

Deryn coughed "Nice going." she sucked in a big breath and hurried into their room.
Alek's eyes had been watering for the last ten minutes. In an attempt to apoligise for bearing such bad news, Lilit wanted to make them all a nice meal. Alek agreed, not wanting to be rude, but also especting her to be a little better in the kitchen. Boy, was he wrong.
Lilit seemed to be enjoying herself, bustling around the kitchen, whistling happily. Lilit had run to the store that afternoon and came back with an odd array of things, some Alek had never even seen before, let alone tasted. But he felt terrible enough that Deryn had been more than unwelcoming to Lilit, he didn't want to stop her.

"Come on Dylan, it would be fun!" Alek pleaded, almost nearly bow down to him, just to accept the offer.
"No barking way! That's sounds stupid!!"
Alek raised his head, "PPPLLLEEAASSSEEE!!!!"
Dylan shook his head, Alek knew that Dylan had a weakness, and that weakness was begging.
Dylan sighed, annoyed, and wanted to get out of there.
"Fine! But it's for fun! Got it?!"
Alek nodded, and went to the dusty book shelf, grabbed a big, old decorated book, filled with endless words, covering the pages with German.
"Okay, here's who you're playing, Benvolio, Tybalt, nurse, and "
Alek spread a smile across his face.
Dylan's eyes widen
"NO BARKING WAY! I'm not playing a girl!"
Alek shrugged "oh, well. Here's who I'm playing. Let's see, um Prince,"
"I wanted to play him, you play Juliet!"
Alek looked at him, He chuckled.
"Well, no. You don't get to, I do. Besides, you have a pretty high voice; you can play a girl easily."

Romeo and Juliet Part 2Deryn couldn't believe that Alek wanted to her to play Juliet. Juliet! Out of all the characters in that thing! She had to get Juliet, A Capulet who falls in love with Romeo, and they get married the next day! Why on earth did they get married the next day anyway? Deryn sighed. Who knows she thought. Alek and she finally reach the topside of Leviathan; it was a clear, sunny day. The breeze was perfect, her hair all over the place, throwing and tossing, still has to be Juliet, she groaned.Romeo and Juliet Part 2 in Profiles More Like This
Alek smiled "ready? Remember you're playing Benvolio, I'm playing Tybalt."
She frowned "I thought I was playing Tybalt."
Alek shook his head, "you seem to have your hands full. I'll be Tybalt."
Since Alek, the stupid dummkopf didn't have another copy of the book; they had no choice to toss the decorated book back and forth. Back and forth, over and over again. Deryn was starting to get annoyed.

2 hours before
Deryn and Alek were walking around the big, strange city. Alek had never seen a Darwinists city before, so he was truly in shock.
" What is that?" Alek asked, pointing to a big beastie.
Deryn followed Alek's finger. Deryn scoffed "that's a elephantine. It carries heavy things."
Alek eyes widen, surprised that she knew all this. " That thing is huge!!" He exclaimed.
" Well, what do you expected? A small elephant carrying ants? Come on, let's go get new clothes to wear."
Alek nodded. Both of them, muddy, from walking and grease smeared all over alek's clothes, which looked disgusting. Deryn, a well person to sew (just in case) can fix anything.
Alek and Dylan walked into an interesting clothing store. Filled with never ending colors. But a sign in Japanese said something

" Alek there's something i need to tell you." She spat out
" Not now Dylan! i'm trying to practice!"
Volger watched her, like a fabricated hawk watching her every move.
She huffed. Deryn grabbed Alek by his fencing armor, and looked at his eyes
" What is it Dylan? you pulled me out to do- mphm!!!"
Deryn didn't let the archduke finished, and kissed him hard on the lips.
Volger was watching her. Shocked.
Alek struggled, then started to close his wonderful eyes, and enjoyed the kiss.
Finally..she thought. No more secrets.

Alek spinned on his heels, seeing a bullet heading for his chest.
But it didn't.

Deryn had no choice to kick down the door.
She had to put all her might she could kick down the door.

Deryn gasped at the scene she saw, and her eyes were big as saucer plates.
"OH! um...Mr. Sharp! what are you doing here?" the confused doctor asked.
There was Dr. Barlow and Count Volger were making out! Volger had his shirt out of his pants and his muscles hanging out. Dr. Barlow's hair was out of the bowler hat and was replaced with messy brown curly hair going which way possible! Deryn felt her stomach turn upside do

Deryn entered her private chambers, exhausted from three days of nonstop work on the Leviathan. Finally she was able to take a few minutes to change out of her sweaty uniform and change into something more appropriate. She sighed, remembering that they'd arrive to Japan the very next day and Alek would vanish from the Leviathan forever. He would probably vanish into the wilderness and somehow find a way back to the main land and hideout until this barking daft war would be over. Deryn shook her head, clearing her thoughts of Alek from her mind, reminding herself that he was a barking prince -that's archduke you dummkopf!- and she was a lowly mooneye-eyed lassie that served as an airman. She couldn't fall for him; she couldn't, unless she wanted him to run a mile. Anyway once Alek was gone, so would her feelings for him, too. Deryn put on a determined look on her face and chased away all thoughts of Alek that entered her mind.

"DERYN!" Alek shouted as he shook her limp body trying to wake her up, get her to talk, or do something.
Alek's arm landed on a small box as he continued to shake Deryn (as if that would help) and knocked it over. The clattering helped Alek see through his panic and look at what box he had knocked over.
"God's wounds," Alek breathed as he saw that this box was Deryn's smelling salts, "This could barking work!"
He opened the box and waved it under her nose trying to spread the sharp smell to wake Deryn up. Finally Deryn opened her eyes and Alek sighed with relief, "Thank providence that you're alright, Deryn! I thought you had just died! Are you all right?"
"Oooooohhhh... Alright isn't the right word here, I think," Deryn managed to get out before hurling right on the bed.

Alek leaned back looking shocked, as he saw Deryn wince from her pounding ribs and head, but managed to compose himself and reply, "Y-you're alive, Dyl- erm, what's your true name?"

Alek blushed, whispering, "Y-you were hurt so I-"

"Bumsen!" Alek cried, and listened closer. There was something missing from the usual sounds the Leviathan made but Alek couldn't understand what... Then it hit him.
"Dummkopf!" yelled Alek and began to climb up toward the engines, "Of course they would aim for the engines you idiot, the engines are the airships most important way of traveling! The clankers should know that by now from the sultan in the Ottoman empire!" Alek climbed faster reaching the walker cabin, and peeked in to see what the problem was. What met his eyes was beyond what he imagined; Klopp was unconscious and Mr. Hirst was tending to him.

"Barking spiders," Deryn mumbled in awe as she saw a clanker machine swoop overhead and shoot a row of bullets into the whale's spine. Deryn dropped down the hatch as the aeroplane zoomed overhead almost beheading her.
"Barking persistent are they! Once on the glacier and now on the border of China? What are the clankers now; watchdogs?" Deryn exclaimed, checking first to see if the aeroplane was gone, then pulling herself out onto the spine. She whistled with the scene that met her eyes; there were huge masses of dead bodies strewn all over the Leviathan, both beastie and human. The sight brought tears to Deryn's eyes to see the airship so helpless with the clankers swooping again and again destroying more and more of it each time.

Like something was hidden deep within each word
that managed to escape his trembling lips.
A pain so deep,
earth shatteringly strong,
like at any moment his body would give out,
and he'd fall to the ground.
The weight of the world
finally weighing him down,
drowning him in an ocean of misery.
His voice shook
But he stood strong,
if anything a bit worn at the edges,
but he refused to fall.
With each pained word,
his strength disintegrated,
and the real pain began to surface
in his heartbroken eyes.
Life was a struggle,
life had drug him around,
beat him down,
And all he had left now,
were his trembling,

Now let it all out in one
Let your grip on reality slip.
Let your innocence die.
Let your mind wander.
Take hold of my hand

Ignore the whispering behind the curtains,
forget the past full of lies.
Here you will learn that right is right and wrong is left.
Do avoid the left,
that's where the wicked live,
lost in a world that cannot be saved,
lost in a world where they once knew you.
The roses may sing lovely tunes,
and the daisy's may give incredibly well thought through speeches,
but don't waste your time listening to them,
they only wish to steal your beautiful eyes,
and your innocent lives.
before your chance is gone,
jump through the mirror
and crash down
into a world
that has been waiting for you,
since the very beginning of time.

Leviathan: A picture for a prince
Just a small intro. Deryn/Dylan Sharp and Prince Alecksander Ferdinand are on board the leviathan heading towards the Ottoman Empire. A surprise request from Aleck gets Deryn/ Dylan to realize her true feelings for him. Rated pg-13 for later chapters.
(I might go to four chapters at most, also keep in mind there is a change of point of view and that the book just came out in October. This fanfic is a test run for future fanfics later on)
Alek walked along the great air ship that was the Leviathan. His now rubber soles clanked against the metal walkways of the ships spine. The whole crew seemed to be a little on edge whenever he and his men walked about with their "highly flammable" shoes. Until finally to put them all at ease they borrowed some rubber shoes that were necessary if you were to walk along the great ship.
After receiving the shoes Alek decided to head to the backside of the creature or "dorsal" as he learned later it

Memories of her past and current life seem to pass by in a blur. She saw yellow flames surround her father, her mother's voice echoing along the halls of her old home, her brother announcing that he was joining the navy. Slowly the images seem to slow down, she saw herself standing in a line of men with her head held higher than the rest, and she saw snow and ice surround the bodies of brave soldiers who died defending the Leviathan.

My bad you guys, I realized that Alek came to terms to quickly with what happened in the last chapter. So I had to make him suffer. Plus I realized when it comes to sexual stuff, its much more interesting to hear it from the girls P.O.V.
Perhaps it was the fact that a girl was kissing him, or the fact that her shirt was partially undone, or the fact that the heat in the room has completely robbed him of his common sense, but Alek didn't immediately pull away.
Did he expect to find out his best friend was really a girl? No. Did he expect to be kissed abruptly by her? Also no.
And yet that's what was happening at the moment.
Alek's entire thought process and emotions had completely shifted when he found out about Dylan no wait Deryn's little secret. Above all things he was hurt, confused, and somewhat angry at her. It was her fault he was experiencing this completely knew feeling, and yet the new feeling for him was of course extremely awkward. It took all of his skills as
