The police did not protect and serve the public.
They did not keep the streets a safe place.
Murderers, Rapists, Robbers, and the corrupt were not arrested.
In this world, the cops were there to punish and enslave.
Kaine was one of many who knew that when you saw red and blue lights flashing, you hid. Immediately. The blond rebel, however, was no stranger to the treatment of the police once captured. Many were amazed that he was still out on the streets. No uniformed ijit could contain him.
On these streets, you either did what you were told: stay in line, don't ask questions, and keep your head down.
Or you work in the shadows to fight against the corrupted. That is what Kaine did. He was an underground citizen, he did not exist in the civilized world. The only place he did exist is on the cops most dangerous list for treason. Kaine did not stay in line, keep his head down, didn't do as he was told, and most certainly asked all t
Blake - GiDIt was late. The entire house was asleep; everyone except for Blake. The boy had woken only an hour or so after falling asleep feeling that something wasn't right. The stable boy threw his legs over the side of his makeshift bed three bundles of hay with some blankets covering it, and pulled on his shoes, pulling his hanging suspenders up over the shoulder of his loose, white cotton shirt as he raked a hand through his messy, nearly shoulder length dirty blond hair. He yawned before he started walking, moving slowly down to the lower section of the barn, making his way to the stables.Blake - GiD in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
"Come on," he heard a man whisper. "Just get the horse! Fast! Before someone sees." Blake gulped. The voices definitely didn't belong to his master, nor to anyone else who lived in or worked at the large farm house. He tip-toed around the back of the stable, entering into shadows, trying to figure out what was going on. His blue-green eyes widened as he saw three men, all dressed in dark colors, le

Drew - GiDDrew took a deep breath as he let the pot enter his system. He knew that he shouldn't be in the park after hours and he definitely should have been getting stoned, but he couldn't handle things at home anymore, not the way they had been going. He closed his eyes as he took another hit off of his own clumsily rolled joint, leaning against the tree where he stood. With his eyes closed, he hadn't noticed the uniformed officer walker towards him.Drew - GiD in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
"Excuse me, what do you think you're doing?" Drew's eyes flew open as he heard the voice, and he dropped the joint, stamping it out quickly with his sneaker.
"Nothing," Drew said hurriedly, pushing some of his black and blond hair from his face, revealing an eyebrow ring.
"I'll need to see some ID."
"Of course." Drew fumbled to produce his wallet and he held out his recently procured driver's license.

"I dunno. Heeey, are you awake?" CC whispered.
I pulled down the blankets enough to show them I was awake. "What?"
CC looked back at Jake, then got on the bed. It creaked under his weight.
"We're going to help you get better." CC giggled, sitting next to my head.
Jake climbed in by CC, sitting in front of him.

A man dressed in black stood in a dark corner on the almost vacant street of LA. Around him cars sped down the street, trying ot get past red lights and swerving around pedestrians. Girls walked in tight clusters down the streets and drunk men stumbled home, whooping at eachother like lunatics. Every now and then the man would pull out his phone to check the time, but remained looking around. His baby blue eyes flickering to everything that seemed to move within 10 feet of him. He wore everything dark, except a belt full of silver studs and a shining golden necklace with a star on it. He ran his hand through his spiked up hair and looked around again, looking for something. Suddenly a car engine roared and pulled up beside him. A black mustang slowed to a stop and rolled down the window. Inside, a man in his late 20s leaned over the arm rest to look at the black clad man. Like him, he was decked in mostly black. A cowboy hat positioned

My dreams were clouded and full of mind blurring events, I couldn't recall all of them at once but in short episodes. I hated every single one of them, the few I remembered were horrible to me. Reoccurring ones of Andy reaching out to me, being pulled back by some force. His blue eyes filled with fear. I tried to reach out to him, but my body was stuck still. I couldn't move, no matter how much I screamed for him.
Then suddenly I was standing in the middle of nowhere, nothing but hills that seemed to stretch for miles on end. I began to walk, my hands swinging at my sides. Every step I took made the sky darker and the footstep sound deeper, slowly ranging from a mere tap and eventually like clogs on a shallow staircase to thunder strikes that rattled my chest. The sky grew dark and a very, very cold rain picked up, chilling me to my very bones.
"Hello?" I called, holding my arm up to shield myself from the piercing rain and wind. "Hello!?"
The wind spiked my hair straight back, I grunt

We only sat there, curled up on the bed just basking in eachother's presence. We hadn't been like this ins forever, just laying with eachother in the dark. His piercing blue eyes never left mine that night, his glowing figure the only light in the room, my breathing the only sound, the only movement was when we blinked. I pressed my hand against his transparent one, just barely being able to feel him against me. He sighed sadly as he was unable to completly hold my hand as we used to. I missed doing hat so much.
"I missed this." he murmured. "I wish I was an actual human again. With skin and bone and..." he looked up at me. "Not just a bunch of energy and stuff."
"but." he continued "I think I'm only kept here for a reason."
"What happened when you died?" I asked. It felt weird, I mean, you don't usually get to ask someone that. It plucked another string in my heart to remember that Andy was, in fact, dead. He closed his head and sighed as if trying to remember that n

"WADDYA WANT?!" I screamed down the stairs.
"DINNER. C'MON DAD GOT PIZZA!" my sister yelled.
I let out a happy noise and pulled on my pants, I thumped down the stairs shirtless and swung into the kitchen where my dad and sister were standing. My dad had 2 Little Ceasers boxes in his left hand.
"Hey sleepyhead." Savannah said, ruffling my already messed up hair.
"Hey whore." I said, poking her bra strap that was visible hanging off her solder.
"Shut up." she pushed it back into place.
"Hey!" Dad warned.
"He started it!" Savannah whined.
"You're 14 Savannah, not 7." he said.
I stuck my tongue out at her.

I sat sobbing next to Andy in the ambulance as they worked on him. In the back of my mind I knew their works were in vain, but I still trusted them to do everything they could. Jake sat beside me, letting me cry into his bare shoulder as I heard the medics call to one another in codes I didn't understand. Everything swirled through my head in a blur, nothing made sense. All I knew was I had just watched the love of my life die in my hands, Jake had to pull me away physically and call the police. I had cradled him, still sobbing until they had come to take him in the ambulance. Even then, I faught back.
"NO! He's MINE!" I screamed "You can't have him!"

All five of us turned to look at Jinxx, who had the most mortified expression I've ever seen on his face. CC leaned over to look at the screen and then turned away, looking sick. I crossed the room to look down over the laptop, but Jinxx closed it and shook his head.
"Ashley....no." he said.
"What is it?" I demanded.
"You already saw it...just, it might mess with you." he swallowed "Its Andy."
I grabbed Jinxx's computer from him. He was right, an animated GIF of the masked man shooting Andy. It was hard to tell it was them though, it was dark and shadowy. The flash of the gun and the 2nd figure--Andy-- dropping to the ground. The 2nd man ran toward the camera and in the background you could see me running to the scene. I scrolled down and saw a few pictures, captioned with comments that were supposedly funny. Below it were even worse pictures, not memes, but of dead people. Some with obvious

It seemed like years passed before I gathered the courage to go back inside the house itself, in fear the others might see me again. I didn't want them to see me, it'd be too much. They'd flip their shit again. Ashley could handle it, he wasn't as scared as the others were, hell he wanted me to stay. I felt his pain in having me go again. His chest ached and his body was numb, he was sad. Depressed even. Yes, I could feel his emotions. Exactly like it was happening to my own body--the body I used to have anyway. The body thats 6 feet under a pile of dirt in a cemetery overlooking a valley, near a church and a few houses blocked in with a black iron gate that went 6 feet tall and a gate that went even higher. The body that lay in the same field with other bodies, rotting away to bones. Bodies whose souls had passed on...but not me. There was a possibility that there were a few-very few-spirits from that place left here forever...but i

A small boy walked quickly out of his house, clutching a brown paper bag to his thin chest, his superhero backback hanging off of one elbow. He wore a plain white tank top and jeans that were too small, not reaching his ankles, he wore the same clothes all week because his mom didn't wash his clothes anymore. Or buy any for him. He looked around slowly as he walked to school, the other kids passing him and whispering to eachother. The other kids didn't like him all that much because he was quiet. Not even his teacher talked to him all that much.

Break You Part 1Donohue rolled up to the side of the building, the words PET SHOP painted in bold across its face. The place tended to sicken him, but nonetheless, he needed a new slave. He had already broken the last one, and sent it off to be some farmers child. He needed a new one, though He was running out of farmers in need of boys to work with, and at this point was practically drooling for a challenge. Entering the store, a cheerful bell rang, rather deceitfully in Donohues opinion. He stepped into the darkening room, used to the drill of walking in and judging the boys like pieces of meat.

As Solioux made his final descent to the cloud of the damned, he was greeted with a loud and bitter applause. There stood his colleagues, draped in black, each and every one of them staring him down as they slowly touched their hands together.
"What?" The angel growled bitterly, wings bristling behind his back as he landed before them, tanned knuckles turning white as he clenched his hands into spindly fists.
The cloud became silent, and the other reapers parted way for the Big Cheese. The reaper of reapers, destroyer of entire populations, Ragnarok himself. He stood heads over even Solioux, who was unusually tall, and wielded a scythe with unmatchable strength.

Solioux drifted through the night sky, his black wings illuminated by the stars as he stared nostalgically down at Europe. All of Europe. His home, his upbringing, his place of death... Dear god, he missed it. How long had it been now? Weeks? Months? They had no calendars where he resided now... Only orders. He had no idea what day it was when he took his last victim - simply that he'd been told to execute the mission as quickly as possible. But what was time, really, when one was eternally timeless?
Deep blue eyes swam with tears that would never fall, for they could not. This eternity, spent alone - spent damning others to fates, often worse than his own, couldn't possibly be better than hell. But he had chosen it.
Solioux had been a street fighter in his time. Bareknuckle boxing champion of the Paris underground. But he hadn't been a bad man. He hurt others

Opening my eyes, I blinked away the bleary imagery. A puff of blue hair came into sight, followed by a hair of happy green eyes. I met them with a content smile, reaching out and stroking his porcelain cheek. "Mornin," I mumbled softly, leaning down and giving him a kiss. My mouth was dry and tasted of vinegar and sleep, but I didn't care. He still tasted fantastic.
"Hey, sleepyhead," He crooned in lieu of response. Cute kid. I still wasn't a hundred percent on his name though. I snuggled him closer to my chest, nuzzling soft blue hair as I did so.

The cane was adorned with white crystals, cut and arranged to create a glittering holly branch that crept up the handle. As she reached the intersection, a huge man with short red hair approached her, placing a giant hand on her slouched shoulder.The Thunder + His Thief Intro in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

I rest, certainly - I just don't truly sleep. Sometimes, when I lie in bed at night, thinking of him, I imagine that I have gone to sleep and am dreaming. But then I look at the clock, and realize that no more than a few minutes have passed. I could only ever sleep when he held me, and I fear that I will never sleep again.
The trouble started when we went to war. I had been the ideal soldier, before all that started. I was built, smart, religious to a fault, and head-over-heels in love with my country. Perhaps most fortunate of all, though, I could sleep. I'm still strong, and I don't believe that the war made me any stupider; but I have lost faith in my country. I have lost faith in God. I have lost the ability to sleep.
I lost a lot of other things during those years as a Green Beret. Namely, my virginity. And my family. I lost an eye, although I can't say that I ever needed more than one. But more painful than

His father had bought me at an auction for the boy's own protection... I'm pretty sure there's an unwritten law against buying slaves for protection. But I could be mistaken. Maybe some don't find it in their instincts to betray a weaker master. All I'm saying is, I certainly do.Teddy Bear in Short Stories More Like This
I'm usually bought for manual labor, grunt work. Not to be a body guard. That just seems... stupid. I glanced over at the boy. He was small, maybe 5'5, with the build of a fourteen year old. Though by the light blue stubble growing on his chin, I'm sure he was a bit older. Big green eyes shown hesitantly at me, and I locked my auburn gaze with his, slowly walking towards the youth.
The round, furry bear ears atop my head wiggled with anticipation as I approached him, my brown tuft of a tail wagging secretly, tucked into the c
