Living with the Kirkland boy band pt5 (KBXReader)Vince seemed to love you to pieces. He followed you everywhere, waiting for you to come home from school and took every opportunity to sit on you, whichever part was available, be it your lap, legs, shoulders or head.

Sometimes he’d even bump into your legs when you stopped to do something, just because he was so focused on following you.
But at that particular moment, he wasn’t there, something that made you slightly worried. “Don’t worry, he’ll just be asleep somewhere.” Dylan told you, trying to ease your nerves. “Yeah!” You agreed, sorting out the numerous packages and letters into piles.
“Hey, I wanted to ask you something.” You glanced up at the Welshman, as did he. “Correct me if I’m wrong, but..... you’re Blue, aren’t you?”
Gaping at him, you dropped the glitzy letter in your hands to the floor. Wh-whaa?

“If she’s pretty I’m so claiming her da-ze!”
“You guys need to calm down! Seriously, what’s she going to think of us?”
“I’ll definitely be friends with her!”
“I wonder if she likes animals....”
They fell quiet when the double doors opened, you standing in the middle on one hip. The rest of the countries fanned out beside you and you all paused for a moment, looking for a seat. The countries you hadn’t met yet were all gazing at you in awe at your entrance.
America was the first to recover and jump to his feet. “Dude, that was like the most epic entrance I’ve seen in forever!” He shook your hand vigorously and you struggled to keep up with him. “Tha-thank you.”

“This is the bracelet Blue always wore!” You winced at your stage name, a grimace playing around your lips. “I wasn’t aware she’d sold it....” you heard and you looked up to see Allistor staring at it intently.
“Are you...?” Allistor grinned sheepishly and sat back down on the bed. “I’m a big fan of hers. Still am in fact. It’s such a shame she left.” You held back a hiss. That’s what they’d said you’d done? They said you’d left?! What a farce!

The door creaked open, revealing a small blond in the doorway. “H-hello!” He said, smiling. “Is this the music class?” Your teacher nodded, getting out his list of students. As it was still the beginning of the year, students came and went, the rest of you were all quite used to it. “And you are....?”
The blond walked up to the piano where your teacher was, and rubbed his neck nervously. “It’s Tino, Tino Väinämöinen.”
Your teacher blinked, smiling wryly. “And how do you spell that?” Tino chuckled, obviously used to it. “It’s V-Ä-I-N-Ä-M-Ö-I-N-E-N.” Tino smiled as he scribbled it down o

Ivan stood and watched as you took off yet again. His heart squeezed painfully as your plane disappeared over the horizon and he turned, his long scarf swishing behind him as he walked. It was always like this.
Ivan had been taken in by your mother, one of the best pilots in the nation and the only female one. She was renowned for her impressive dives and spins and when she flew it was as if she might not come back; she looked as though she could stay up there with the birds and never return.
But Ivan had two sisters, sisters who’d been ripped away from his side and he longed to get back to, back in Russia. Though he hardly had any memory of them, he knew he had to find them, whatever it took.

Swilling the liquid in his cup he sulked in the corner of the room filled to the brim with loud babbling people, music thumping in the background.
The only good thing about this place is that you’re here.....he thought, glancing over in your direction. He’d had the most secret of crushes on you for an awfully long time , which meant of course that you didn’t know. His heart always pounded when he looked at you, when you spoke in that sweet voice of yours....
He flushed red just thinking about you and he covered his face with his hands, trying to get the fast pace of his heart to slow down.
Shoving himself from the table, he decided to leave now that Mathias was hammered enough to not stand straight let alone put up a fight.

Then again those videogames of his were also a possibility... As you listened to the music coming from your headphones, you closed your eyes. Hoping to get a bit of rest at least, you hummed along with the song gently, your breathing evening out.
When something heavy leaned on your side, you opened one eye irritatedly to see the cause. “Oh hey Alfred.” You mumbled when you saw the American sitting next to you. “Good morning....”
Laughing quietly, you prodded him in his stomach, making him contract it quickly. “It’s not morning anymore.” You told him and his eyes widened in realisation.

The boy you'd discovered in the alley close to your home was small, frightened and quivering like a leaf. His stained clothes and teddy-bear were spinning in the washing machine at that very moment and you rinsed his hair a few times.
He'd regained a bit of colour on his cheeks and he splashed the water between his dimpled hands. You replayed the scene from before in your head.
"Where's your mum?" You asked tentatively. The little boy merely shook his head, burying his nose in his bear. "What about your dad?" His purple eyes watered and he shook his head again.
You bit your lip in worry, glancing around for someone that could help you. "S-s'il t-vo-vous plait, aidez-m-moi?" His shaking voice snapped you out of your musings, on

Just perfect, your day couldn’t get any better. Hopefully it’ll clear up soon, you thought to yourself as you shielded your head with your bag. Seeking refuge, you scanned the plaza. Most of the shops were already filled to the brink with people looking for lunch and there was no way you were going to wait half an hour for a sandwich.
Seems like I’ll have to skip lunch... you mused, water droplets dripping from your hair. Just as you were about to turn something caught your eye. A small restaurant with twinkling lights in the front window seemed to beckon you closer. It was to the side of the plaza, just into a narrow street that was cobbled with desolated little shops and vendors selling hot waffles.

“There we go!” He exclaimed, dusting his hands of imaginary dust and very present icing sugar. “And now?” You inquired, leaning across the cluttered counter intrigued with his next move. He winked, picking up the tin containing your dessert and put it in the fridge.
“Now, we wait,” He told you, then noticed the state of his hands and added,” and clean.”
Pouting, you sighed. Parts of his blond hair were falling out of the band he’d used to tie it back with and he shook his head awkwardly to the side to try and get the strands of hair out of his eyes.

Deciding that another ten minutes of sleep wouldn't hurt, she pulled the sheets over her head and curled into a comfortable ball. When she next opened her eyes, it was an hour and five minutes later.

Sleep eluded Ulquiorra. If he were alone in the bed, he would have tossed and turned, but there was Orihime lying on the other side of the bed. He didn't think his nerves could stand it if he accidentally touched her and she jumped up screaming. He had a feeling that if that happened now, he would snap. He lay as still as he could for almost an hour but sleep just wouldn't come to him. He sighed, pushed the sheet from himself and got off the bed. He walked over to the veranda that looked into the Queen's garden. Beyond the tall hedges he could see the Lake of Las Noches which reflected the sickle moon. The lake was the lifeline of Hueco Mundo. He remembered when as a child of five he had fallen in the lake while playing and had almost drowned in it. He had hated the lake at that time and had screamed at it. His mother had slapped him hard and told him to learn to accept his own mistakes and not blame others for his own mistake, the lake was there long before he was born and w

It was the first thought in her mind as she came to. Although she couldn't open her eyes, she was certain that a fire was raging and was out of control. And insects oh those insects that were crawling up her body, biting her! Dear Lord, how it itched! Why wasn't anybody putting out the fire? And what about the insects? Why wasn't anyone doing anything about them? Didn't they know that she was terrified of insects? The heat and the itch were killing her, as was her parched throat. Things were going completely out of control and no one was doing anything. She was going to die here for sure. But she didn't want to die, not so soon. She would live, she had to. She would run away from the fire, these insects and run to where she would find water. Yes! Run!
With a gasp, Orihime sat up on her bed. She looked around wildly, there was no fire to be seen, nor were there any insects anywhere. She itched herself maddeningly as she took in her surroundings. She was in a strange

He had seen a glimpse of the monster that resided within him and he hated it from the bottom of his heart. He wasn't going to let that fiend resurface.

Neji was avoiding everyone else as much as he could while jumping from branch to branch. The last thing he needed to do was something embarrassing and uncharacteristic of himself, so he remained as far ahead of the others as possible. His strategy worked quite well; at least, until he suddenly found Sakura next to him.
Neji-san- she began.
What?! he said, a little too abruptly. She frowned at him, and he felt his gut twist. Neji liked it much better when she smiled. Only, when she smiled, his body did all sorts of things that he was certain would normally send him to an early grave. But, he would want her to smile anyway, even if his heart skipped enough beats to kill him or he suddenly forgot how to breathe or his brain spontaneously stopped functioning properly and turned to mush.

What the annoying man-mutt was doing, Neji didnt know, nor did he really care. He was more focused on the girl he had sworn revenge upon. He probably wasnt far away, though, as his dog was here with Sakura. As he observed them, she threw a stick, laughing as the dog would race off after it and then run back, prize in mouth, earning him a pat on the head and another throw. It all seemed rather pointless to Neji, but then again, it was Sakura; she was like that: confusing and seemingly pointless.
In fact, that was why he was crouching where he was, watching her. He needed to study her, to gather information about her, because, at the moment, he had very little. Then, when he determined that he had

"I wish you'd die, I wish you'd be killed."
But what if we actually gave meaning to those words?
Can you understand the emotion, the magnitude, the weight,
Of actually seeing the life of an individual depart?
Can you look them in the eyes, as they bleed into your hands;
Observing their final moments, as the light fades from their eyes?
Or are you simply a soft-hearted coward,
Sitting fat behind a computer, wishing death upon others?
To say that one is deserving of death,
Suggests that you are ready to kill.
And if indeed you are ready to kill,
Then you too must be prepared to die.

John whirled about and aimed a stroke at the second man in line. Had he fools stayed together, one could have struck at his back while he deal with another. But her would not let them rcover from their mistake.
The second villain was strong of arm, and barely blocked John's slash with a rusty sword. John drew back and lunged: his point dove past man's guard and into his chest. He dropped dead, his own weight freeing John's sword.
The third man threw away his sword and ran; John ignored him for the fourth varlot, who struck at his horse.
But the mare was a trained warhorse; she twisted her head aside and his clum

A Cautionary TaleI wrote this in my most recent Quote of the Day:A Cautionary Tale in Editorial More Like This
'Perhaps the most despicable class of people I know: those who jam their knees into the backs of people sitting in front of them.'
Some ass commented by saying:
'Despicable? Really? Does it not occur to you that those behind you may be 6 foot and that their legs may well be by far the longest parts of their bodies, rendering it almost impossible for them to NOT stick their knees in your back.
Think before you judge.'
To which I replied thusly:
'As a matter of fact, I am over six feet high, my legs are by far the longest part of my body, and I manage to NOT stick my knees in the backs of the people in front of me.'
In fact, I go to a great deal of effort and discomfort to keep my knees out of other people's backs, so when some 5'2" woman can't be bothered to keep her knees out of mine, it pisses me off.
But what pisses me off more than almost anything is said ass' easy assumption that I did not think. 'Think before you judge' 'Does it not

A few months later nothing between Alex and I has changed were still just friends, but it has gotten a bit awkward. My birthday was in a few days, July 3rd. It was the first now, and Alex and I were going to the cafe, he had a performance. When we got there I started to head to a seat at the back of the cafe. "Hold on there" said Alex. I turn to him, a bit shocked. "There is no way I'm letting you sit out here by yourself." This was the cafe from a few months

By the time it was Friday I was so excited I could barely breathe, which surprised me. Why was I acting like this? It made no sense. None the less it was time to start heading to the café. As I walk I begin to recognize where I am, but how could that be possible? I've never been in this part of town before .have I? This was getting strange and just as I think this very thought, I hear "Rose!" I turn around to see Alex calling my name. I smile and run over. "What did you get lost or something?" said Alex in a very teasing way. "No I didn't" I say to him. "Sure~" was his reply in such a sarcastic voice. "I didn't! I just wasn't paying attention " I reply looking at the ground. "So like always?" he say with a laugh, all I can do at this point is roll my eyes. When I did that he just laughed again. "Come on, I'm gonna be late." Alex tells me, but his voice didn't seem worried, just happy. I wonder why? He walks me to my seat and says he has to head to

Lying on my bedroom floor, she's all I can think about and for once I don't mind. I sigh. She really is an interesting girl. I wonder what she's thinking about right now ?

I open my bedroom door and spin in a circle in my room, I turn on my CD player and one of my favourite songs blast through the speakers "why can't I breathe whenever I think about you, why can't I speak whenever I talk about you!" I sing along to the lyrics, and I begin to wonder what Alex is thinking about right now, he certainly is a very interesting guy.

I wonder why Rose was starring at me. I thought as I walked toward the schools garden, I didn't go there often, but for some odd reason I felt as if I needed to be there today. And as I walked into the part of the garden that was filled with roses and cherry blossoms, I heard a voice, it was a very beautiful voice, it sang the words,
"I'd rather waltz than just walk through the forest,
The trees keep the tempo and they sway in time,
Quartet of crickets chime in for the chorus,
If I were to pluck on your heartstrings, would you strum on mine?
I've been longing for,
Daisies to push through the floor,
And I wish that plant life would grow all around me,
So I won't feel dead anymore.
So I won't feel dead anymore."
I glace around the corner and see Rose. "Wow" I whisper under my breath. Not only was Rose the most beautiful girl I know, she was also the kindest and now she can sing, and then I blush, realizing what I had just been thinking. I sound like I like her .. I do
for ma212co121What was happening? A few seconds ago I was walking away not telling him why I was mad at him, I went out into the court yard, and as I stood there I sung "it's good to know, that I can still feel something, other then, the numbness of my life. It's good to know, that something's will never change, I want to be more than this. I guess my wish can true, he knows me but not enough to realize; he'll only ever see me as a friend nothing more. Man I wish it was raining, for when it rains the rain touches my skin, feels my sorrow and when it falls it takes it all away~" on the last note I held it for second or two. I end staring at the gray clouds that hang in the sky above me, I sigh, and then I hear the door open behind me. I whip around to see him coming threw the door. Did he hear me? "wha-" that was all I got out before his hands cupped my face, and his sweet lip touched mine. He held my face refusing to let me escape, but why would I want to?

the lost heat of rose tanner 1It was just an ordinary day in the small town of Johnson state. Rose Tanner lay awake in her warm bed, underneath her rose patterned blankets. Rose never slept, she would get to the point of pure exhaustion before she would pass out for four too five hours. Even though she would not sleep she would dream, Rose was a daydreamer, always has been. Even though she was fifteen she had the imagination of a thousand children, when she was younger instead of having an imaginary friend she had a whole make-believe world all to herself, her own little wonderland, but Rose was no Alice, she was a simple girl. Rose had ice blue eyes, which had a habit of changing to a pure, misty white when it would rain or snow. Her hair hung about eight centimetres below her shoulders; it was a chocolate brown, which in the sun, or under water, would have a very distinctive red tint. Her lips were like a thousand rose buds had taken all eternity leading to her birth to stain them a sweet crimson.

Before me stood the old Jalen house. It is said to be cursed with many things. I have to go in and see if this is true.
I walk towards the old moldy oak doors. It is sad that a house that was once so beautiful, has became so old and decaed.
In the front yard, there was a broken willow, ravens flew around it.
Ravens, the followers of the night, their gaze making my skin crawl. I couldn't help but feel nervous, my mind is jumping all over the place. 'come girl focus.'
I shiver and continue towards the door. As I open it, I hear a scream that could make anyones blood curtel.
A banchy, a cruel murderous creature of the decriptive night.
There're said to have teeth and claws that could rip though steel like it was butter.
Even though I know it is foolish, I still continue down the hall.
My eyes sweep the room, taking in each detail; cracked mirrors, chanderliers covered in spider webs,
but the strangest and most frightening thing of all was the candles, and the f
