Forever (LatviaXReader)You were in distress at the moment, searching high and low for your small friend. As Raivis really was quite small compared to the other boys he often got picked on and you simply couldn’t have that! You always managed to scare away the bullies by kicking their shins and growling at them.Forever (LatviaXReader) in Romance More Like This
And whilst that sort of thing works at primary school it starts losing its effectiveness at high school. Because the boys got taller than you regrettably. But that didn’t stop you from protecting your friend.
“Rai!” You called, skidding around the corner. A hiss escaped your lips as you saw the brunette on the floor, his stomach being brutally kicked. You advanced towards the group of louts. “Stop it. Now.”
Every word you said was made more menacing as you cracked your knuckles. The punks raised their eyebrows and sauntered over to you. “Does the big girl want to play?” They took hold of your wrist bringing it above your head.
“I think she does.

Humming along to Feli’s singing you wondered what it’d be like to dance. Well for that, you supposed, I’d have to be able to see. Or have someone I could trust no matter what.
“Bella!” You perked up and beamed as Feliciano’s footsteps entered the room. “How’ve you been bella?” His voice came closer to you when he hugged you tightly, smiling when you wrapped your arms around his neck.
“Better now that you’re here!” You chirped, grinning at him. He smiled back and chuckled sheepishly as he heard himself talk on the radio again. “You’re listening to this old stuff again?”
Nodding vigorously, you giggled. “Of course! Also this one is good. The

“Adnan! Put some light into it!” You called at the teen who glowered at you. You were about the same age, and that put him off even more when he had to take orders from you. Growling, he rolled his sleeves up a bit more, his hood still covering most of his face.
He was one of the problem kids you’d met and unfortunately you’d been chosen as his supervisor. Which meant you had to stick with him most of the time. Sadik thought you to be a nuisance at first, but soon realised that you had no choice in the matter.
Slowly he was warming up to you, it was hard not to. He was a teenage boy after all and he couldn’t really complain when a pretty girl hung around him. In fact, at times, the two of you had really quite good conve

Another night, a stiffer drink. Sadly your life had little to offer besides work and hangovers, which left you feeling cold and lonely.
You walked as if in a daze, a loud smack echoing in your dull ears, followed by a thud and the sensation of hitting the ground.
Blinking, you realised someone was on top of you. He winced and his green eyes pierced yours. "Well hi there." He said, accompanied by a wiggle of his eyebrows. "I can't believe you're still flirting! That's the reason you're on the floor, Dutchy!"
The man on your stomach growled, sighing as he sat up. He sat cross-legged on the floor as he scratched his neck. "Look I get the idea. Can't we just forgive and forget?" He asked jovially.
His blond hair was very spiked up you noted, along with the blush on his cheeks. Jup,

.... a red football shirt. Picking it up, you turned it over to see the name. Fernández Carriedo huh? You thought, recalling that name from somewhere. But where..... Then it hit you. The star football player! Of course!
Well, there was no way you were putting that shirt down now! You clung to it, grinning widely. You didn't even know why you hadn't immediately recognized that name, I mean, he was only one of the best football players at the moment, not to mention he was incredible handsome and charismatic.
That's what the cameras showed you anyway, who knows? You pondered, maybe he's an arrogant, antisocial bastard most of the time and he puts on a smile, an adorable one at that in front of everyone.
Whilst you mused on this food for thought, you skimmed the rest of the tables. Conclusion, nothing interesting there. So you proceeded to the counter and bought the shirt eagerly. Even the cashier shot you a look of pure jealousy.

Please enjoy and I always love to know what you think, so please leave a comment to tell me your thoughts if you can!
You were having a bad day to say the least. Scratch that you hadn't felt this bad since you'd caught the flu last winter. Not that you were sick or anything, in fact, physically you were absolutely fine. It was just this piece.
No matter what you did, how you played it, it always sounded wrong. And the most frustrating thing? It was so much easier and simpler than almost all the other things you'd ever played.
Sighing, you lay your cello down on the dirty tiles and inspected the little hut sort of thing you were playing in. The house you were staying in was a small chateau, deep in the woods. Your cello teacher had invited you to come to it for a week, during which you would toughen your fingers and your bonds with the other cellists.
Coming home (IcelandXReader)You sighed heavily, staring out of the train window. The whiteness that covered the land was stunningly beautiful and yet it was annoying you to no end. Because of the snow, your train had been heavily delayed. As such, you couldn’t meet your Iceland boyfriend at the time you’d said. Even though you’d texted him to tell him to get somewhere warm whilst he waited for you, he’d refused.Coming home (IcelandXReader) in Romance More Like This
At first you’d told him just to go home without you and you’d get home somehow. He’d adamantly told you ‘no’ as ‘it was his job to get you home safely’. And now he was even waiting for you on the platform!
He said he didn’t want to chance missing you in any way. Agitatedly, you chewed on your lip. The book you’d bought was lying open on your lap, but you could scarcely concentrate on it, as entertaining as The Hobbit was. You were just too worked up and worried about Emil.
Then again, maybe it hadn’t been a good idea to dr

Shelves went all the up to the ceiling, books of all shapes and sizes adorning them.Left up to you (Bookshop owner JapanXReader) in Romance More Like This
This was the sort of place you were looking for, the quiet type of paradise that until now had eluded you. Except, the place was filthy.
Dust cloaked the wooden shelves, hell even the air was thick with it. You had to watch your feet carefully, to make sure your nose wouldn't meet the floor anytime soon.
"Hello?" You said, scanning the room for a sentient life form. "Hello? Is there anyone here?" Your voice got louder as you tried again. After managing to stumble closer to the only table with a cash machine, you rang the bell that was settled on the desk.
A groan emitted from behind the doorway, which was covered by strands of fabric, in an a

Aww, it looked like it had a cape! That settles it! You clung onto the stuffed animal as if your life depended on it for the rest of the time. You didn't find anything else though so you bounced over to the counter and paid for it.
You hugged it as you walked towards the exit when a guy stopped in front of you. He was doubled over and out of breath, so you wondered if he was okay. "Hey are you alright?" You touched his shoulder lightly.
He immediately straightened up with flair and struck a pose. "Of course I'm alright! I'm too awesome not to be!" "Erm okay..."

Not that you really could be late. The two of you were going to the nearby cathedral. You'd visited it before with your class and you loved looking at the paintings. So when you'd told him about planning to go there again, he said there was no way you were going without him.
Running outside, you tugged on the blond-haired boy's hand and he followed you like a puppy.
Jiggling on your feet at the side of the road, Roma looked at you. Even though the two of you were only kids, he was certain about his feelings. He wanted to give you everything you wanted, to be everything you would ever need. And he was determined to protect you in each and every way.

Sweet Selkie, Mischief MermaidMermaids are fickle creatures. It is the result of their long and soulless lives. Because they lack the ability to truly love and care for anyone they continually seek their own selfish entertainment. Often this is at the expense of unfortunate mortals.Sweet Selkie, Mischief Mermaid in Short Stories More Like This
Victor Mandrake had a plan whereby to break from tradition and have happiness with a mermaid. Long happiness, which would last until he died rather than a short happiness which would leave him unbearable sorrow and grief in the end. He had to teach a mermaid how to love.

Even though they tend to love the sea more than their husbands, not all unions were unhappy.

The wind was blowing secretly
and sunlight slipped through leaves
Fields of green lay to the side
when secrets were revealed
That day I walked the lonely road
and saw the souls unsealed
They had no cause for hurry
No reason for dismay
They simply glided quietly along
and had nothing which to say
To the watcher on the road
gazing in in silent peace
as a blizzard of snow-white souls
floated without cease
I did not feel the wind that day
Nor the sunlight green and fair
I was a ghost unto the ghosts
and they left me standing there
What judgment yet awaits them
I do not claim to know
As they flew high into the sky
and left me here below.
Some glided along like snowflakes
pure and clean and white
others were clumps of ashes
from a fire out of sight.
So to each our destiny
and judgment for our deeds
And to the sky one day we'll fly
like dandelion seeds.
What judgment shall await us

You let out a low laugh, all the air already knocked from your lungs. "I-It's nice to see you too Mathias..." He released his hold on you, bringing you to your feet,"You seem really happy today."
"Of course I am!" He stated enthusiastically, taking your hand and spinning you as if dancing. "I get to hang out with you all day! We haven't had time to chill in awhile, huh?"

It was a miracle you had even been able to be let outside this late at all. Maybe because the festivals have been going on they allowed you more leash. Music filled the air, probably some of the richer holding masquerade balls currently letting out fresh music.
As you continued to the bigger homes, you could hear the music playing, the people's laughter and the occasional cling of wineglasses chiming in the air merrily. Sighing, you trudged along the dark while you trying not to let your long (f/c) dress and heels agitate you too much.

His eyes averted yours, making you sigh. Getting up, you went back to get some bandages and returned to his side. Slowly, you wrapped up the injuries and remained calm.
You knew how he was, very stoic and not easily able to express his feelings. "I can make you something to eat if you want..." He grunted which you took as a 'sure.' Just slightly, you tightened the bandage, making him flinch. "S-Sorry..."
He stood up, simply gliding past you and leaving you by your lonesome once more. It was normal. The others would leave for hours minus Finland and Iceland but with the Finnish boy growing strong and getting more eager to fight, you'd end up a housewife in the end.

Wed been locked inside the small room for that long. I couldnt remember the last time I slept. I couldnt sleep anymore. Not when the zombie apocalypse was a real thing, instead of something that only happened in my dreams.
There had been a few scares - dull moans of rotting vocal chords, rough scrapes of flesh against cement, and the incessant banging of dead tissue against steel that happened the night before. Or was it the night before that? There was a physical sense of time, with the old mans watch still ticking away, but no mental sense of time. Minutes were hours, days were seconds. And who knew how long that watch would keep ticking?
Of course, all those scares had been solved with a quick opening of the door and a few blasts from a shotgun. How many shells were left? I stopped counting.

Sniper stood watch, just outside the old travel agency building. Aside from somehow withstanding the rest of the block collapsing around it, the shop was impressive for having reasonably preserved brochures. Captain and Pilot would often amuse themselves by planning trips to countries that no longer existed, and Engineer would gather what they discarded for kindling. Whenever Sniper grew sufficiently bored, he'd call out with something he thought was witty.
It was a bit like that, being on watch; you'd either say something funny and die knowing your sense of humour was too good for this world, or you'd say nothing and die without validating your ego.

Ladies and gentlewolves, I come before you today,
To speak on an issue that is close to our hearts.
For many centuries, we Wolves have struggled;
Continuing to seek a final solution to 'the Human Problem'.
Many of you might have heard of the horror stories,
Of these furless creatures lurking in the outer reaches.
Some cities have found them living in underground caverns;
Preying upon the young pups that stray too close to their nests.
It is sad, to say the least, but that sorrow ends today;
For it is my privilege and honour as Chairman of Lycanthropes United,
To unveil our newest means of combating this parasitic pandemic.
Three months ago our top scientist, Doctor Uriel Whitetail,
Discovered a particular genetic weakness in the Human cell structure,
When sprayed with this particular gas, 'Cynofium',
The human cells stop producing an important chemical;
Causing a quick death in mere moments...
As of today our soldiers are already prepared,

To convey an issue that has plagued the core of our community.
For so long have we been considered second-class;
To this day there are those who still believe that we are not artists.
But today is not about freedom, today is about honour,
Because there are many writers that still seek to shame us all...
I speak of those individuals, who take art from others.
Covers, photos, paintings, digital art, anime and manga.
It matters not where you draw your source from,
But every action impacts upon us as a community.

Of the creeping shadows that come at night
We've seen them crawling along the walls
In the absence of the light...
On the darkest of nights, cold and chill
You can hear them quietly gibbering.
They speak of things that you cannot know
Which is why they are always whispering.
It is said that they will know the future
and that they know the fate of every man
They are here to watch his path unfold
or perhaps to have him damned...
These sick and twisted animals
Bear a stench that is rather foul
But you will only smell this scent
if they choose to remove their cowl
It is said that their eyes are like obsidian doorways;
Which hold the key to the depths of the mind.
But none have the courage to look within them;
Afraid of what they'll find...
So my only advice to the weary traveller
Is to believe in the safety of the tavern
Do not look toward the darkest of corners
or you might just stir their cavern...
DieDie:Die in Free Verse More Like This
Such a simple word, spewed without thought.
"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.

Walking alone in a dark alley where my father was last seen isn't one of my brightest ideas, but for some reason I know I need to be here tonight. In my bag our the letters I wrote. Walking around, coming up under the only light on the street. "Hello rosé" a deep voice comes from behind me. I turn, and for once in my life I am not afraid of the man standing behind me. "Good evening.... dad." My voice comes out and I can't even believe I'm the one who's speaking, I sounded strong, brave, unafraid. To be honest it shocked me, but not as much as what happened next.

I wonder where she is. I called twice... maybe I should call the home phone. And with that I

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

Then the sadness sets in.
your not mad anymore
but you still cant open up that door
Love is such a complicated thing,
It can make or break you,
But you never know which one it is.
Love is a strange thing,
No Science can explain it,
No words can comprehend it,
Don't try to understand it,
Don't try to avoid it,
Because it will get you.
You will love and smile,
Then the anger comes
And when it fades
Your lost again,
You want those smiles back
But it hurts to much to ask.
Love is complicated
Love is happy
Love is those smiles,
But it is also the dark times,
When the anger comes and fades,
The heart feels ten tones heavy
And the sadness comes.
"I'm sorry, I love you, I want this sadness to go away..."
These are the words you are scared to say.
So the heaviness stays
and the sadness never fades.
You just wait and pray it will go away
Because of those words,
You're to afraid to say.

the lost heart of Rose TannerIt 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 centimeters 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.

Night Never EndsNight never ends here -Night Never Ends in Free Verse More Like This
the thin blue line
a stranger packs in his bags
before losing his mind;
the scratch behind our eyes
that keeps us moving
down the highway.
It is a jail cell at three a.m.,
the warden playing cards,
whiskey wetting his dreams
where a spark lays waste
to a family left behind;
the backlight of a slum,
a thousand rooms of winter
and water leaking in a lightbulb
over your head.
It is midnight in a foxhole,
the strafe of friendly fire
like a flashlight to beat
into watching for a sign;
the last drink festering on formica
six inches of crushed tafetta
wearing out its welcome
on a barstool called home.
It is dawn in the mortuary
last night's pickings
carved up for christmas
special delivery to no one
who will care;
and the silent mourning bedlam
left thinking on the drainboard
carted out for the trashmen
to haul away

around the dawn
as if begging
for a favor,
so smooth and sharp
worn bare by August -
a mermaid's rib
rubs salt from sand,
the battering lilt of seagulls
against the summer sun.

beneath the boards the beating starts;
as reason from my mind departs,
I fall apart, I fall apart.
The men who knocked upon my door,
not knowing what's beneath my floor
will want to settle up the score -
I do implore, I do implore
This guilt breaks conscience with my lie -
my wracking sobs and wretched sighs.
I never meant for him to die.
It was his eye, it was his eye!
JealousyI forgot how jealousyJealousy in Free Verse More Like This
looked on you -
a brooch of many colors
pinned to her dress
just above the breasts,
or a thin bright ribbon
trailing off a straw hat.
and how it smelled -
too much perfume in a
tiny space or
lemons bursting off the branches
to bloom at her feet.
and how it sounded
like too much music
for one room to hold,
so it had to be shared
with a stranger
who wore candlelight
how it sat on your tongue -
a sharp insect
shedding its wings,
and leaving me
to dream of her.
AcheIt was an old ache -Ache in Free Verse More Like This
a rough reminder
she was not perfect,
a notch in his backbone
that creased his shirt
when he moved the wrong way.
There was a certain charm
about her face
and he liked how she could climb
when she had to
and how her spine lined up
with his bookcase.
(But he wondered why
bled into his flaws)
Still, he had to admit
lean across a table
with a grace
that bordered on
and he could learn to believe
just a dying art.

Shall I find thee all in ice ensnared,
the tree boughs stripped, the blossoms bared,
trapped in a wet and wintry grave -
the blight of snow and hoarfrost shared?
They brought you here, their souls enslaved.
The altar where your minions prayed -
a brilliant diadem of ice,
the offering that your cold heart craved.
They linger here whilst you entice
their frozen limbs as sacrifice.
Their wizened hands by you declared
the chosen few who paid your price

from tiny boats,
sampans and coracles -
red sails threading the sky
like poppies in the autumn sun.
Whales slip through waves
hunting silvered krill
and the spiny dusk
of urchins clinging to the sand.
And they wait
for lines to pull
their hands under
glistening with eel
hauling the afternoon
back to market
in hempen nets.
SkinHow did you put on your skinSkin in Free Verse More Like This
Did your lover
zip up your pale flesh
or did you belt it
casually under your dress?
Did you unfold it lovingly
from the wardrobe,
the sachet of Monday
clinging to the threads;
or model it for your mirror -
the hide and seek
of pink and ivory
running the length of limbs
as if asking to be smoothed
And at the end of the day
did you peel it down
and watch it drop
to the floor
or slip it under the door,
hoping it would remember
the shape and feel
of how life left you?
