Another Language called EnglishI took your adjectives for granted. There was something about the way you skipped over your 's'es and gleaned over your 'i's and 'e's, that never really made me want to kiss you. You'd sit there with your languid fingers clutching a book that was half finished, and read me words that were completely mispronounced. It would prickle me under my skin and I would grit my teeth, wondering when you would stop. I would never understand the english language you thought you spoke, and your confidence in your own words annoyed me.Another Language called English in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This

Teaching Summer to BreatheSummer will always remind me of hot, sweltering nights spent drinking sangria, through the dripping fairy lights of your bedroom window. A sticky, starry sky looked back at us, the glow of the moon almost golden in the heat. Fourteen meant we weren't growing up fast enough and a liquor cabinet key seemed to hold the answer to that problem.Teaching Summer to Breathe in Emotional More Like This
You taught me how to drink that night.
(You also showed me how beautiful it was to just hold your breath till your head spins and reality seems like it is going to fade further and further away.)
Six summers ago I met a boy who liked to tell me how much like summer I was. He was big boned and thin skinned and the first time I told him he wasn't mine to keep, he left handprints on my skin that reminded you of a canvas covered in autumn leaves that you saw in New York. Then you proceeded to break every single window in his house (Yes, even the one in the attic he loved so much.)
You taught me how to smile through heartbreak that night.

Kaitlin and I met gazes. It was like one of those moments where you get a realization before the horror begins. Sure enough, people were out of their seats in seconds and heading for the door. Feeling the urge to follow the pack, Kaitlin, Markie, her friend and I sprang from our chairs and went with the flow of people. We headed for the door like everyone else, and as someone managed to pry open the door under the influence of so many bodies, I saw that we were not the only class running for freedom. Over the tops of my classmate's heads, I could see other people were running down the hallway, and the number of bodies was ever increasing. I think it's fair to say that survival mode kicked in at that moment.
Somewhere in the chaos, I heard Ms. Odnokon's voice sounding from behind us, and just as I spotted an opening in my class mates to the door a hand reached across me, took a huge sweep and shoved us back. It was the police officer.

Now that a good amount of zombies were locked outside in the cold, we had a near empty Gathering area. Taking on one or two zombies that wandered into the area overnight, we could pretty much claim the Gathering area as our own and have a lot more room to live in. Despite that, however, our freedom was ignored. We would still hide out in the Foods lab, biding out time by drawing on the whiteboard, doodling on paper, playing cards and, my personal favourite, staring out the window. Then, there would come a day when the whiteboard markers would die, our pencil leads would dull or break, our pack of 52 cards would become a pack of 46, and there would be nothing slightly more interesting than what was already there to look at in the outside world.

As I scrape at the skin of those demons I chase,
I am left with a smile mixed with pain on my face.
Since I swore I would savour this blatant disgrace,
Let perversion be writ in these scars I will trace.
From the tip of my shoulders to the base of my tongue,
Are the names of those sleepers so cold and so young...

Soft steam wafted from a cup of hot tea. Maka stared at it as if determined to melt into it as a final and desperate attempt to avoid the piercing gaze of her long time friend. Maka had fought many fights and been in many dangerous situations but she had never felt more pinned-down than she did right now.
"Maka, I asked you a question." Tsubaki's agitated but still somehow motherly voice filled Maka's ears. How had this topic come up again? Last time she checked she was here for a study session, not probes into her very new and very sudden love life. Oh ya, it's because she told Tsubaki they didn't have long to study because she had a date; a date with the clingy, overprotective, incomplete albino shark who was currently sitting outside Black*Star and Tsubaki's apartment because he wouldn't let her walk there alone. Maka sighed. It was annoying to be babysat like this but he was just so stubborn! Sometimes it was just easier to go with his whims.
"Ahem ?" Tsubaki

"The last few weeks I have had Stein looking into the Medusa's possible whereabouts. We have successfully narrowed it down to one region in Central Mexico." Shinigami-Sama addressed a small group in the Death Room. So far the rescue team consisted of Soul, Kidd, Liz, Patti, and Stein. The other members of Spartoi were on another mission for the time being. Black*Star and Tsubaki had also been summoned but were fashionably late as always. Assuming that they would catch up when they arrived and since even if Black*Star were present he wouldn't be paying attention anyway Shinigami-Sama had begun the briefing.
The team had not assembled quickly enough for Soul. He had gone straight to the Death Room from the alley where Maka had been taken and arrived a little after midnight. The rest of the group, however, had not gathered until at least 8 the following morning, leaving Soul to pace the Death Room like a caged animal until the others finally arrived.

Peace. It filled the city to the brim on this summer's day. Golden midday rays fell silently on the vibrant green treetops that swayed joyfully in the hot breeze. Birds of every color fluttered from the trees to pledge their undying love to the sky. All seemed well on this perfect day but one person was not convinced, his red eyes scanning the happy scene suspiciously. He walked close behind a slender girl who had her sandy blonde hair pulled neatly into pig tails. She walked proudly with her shoulders back and at first glance seemed full of self confidence. On a closer inspection, the girl's eyes seemed to be glazed and she appeared to be shaking lightly. She staggered slightly, the sway so small a casual observer would have missed it completely but not her red-eyed companion. In a moment he was beside her lending support.
"Soul I'm ok really." She said in a tired and slightly exasperated voice. Soul looked at her with irritation and indignation.

Maka. She was his only thought. Almost before he realized she was going to die he jumped in front of the demon blade shielding her with his own flesh. He felt sharp pain followed by a deep burning travel from the base of his right hip to his left shoulder. The slash was over in less than a second but Soul could see it cutting in agonizing slow motion within his mind's eye. A tiny moment later, consciousness left, leaving him to fall to the stone floor as a bloody and empty doll. Somewhere far away he could hear Maka screaming for him. It wrenched his heart to hear her, adding to the already crippling pain. *Run, Maka! Don't be stupid! Run away!* He thought desperately as he fought to make his mouth, which was hidden somewhere deep in the dark, to say the words. She was still in danger! If she didn't run, she'd die too! He was helpless to stop anymore. He listened as the sound of her sobbing faded in the distance.
He wasn't sure how long he remained in this world of darkness. All h

Soul's senses were shut off as he floated in darkness without thought. Eventually and slowly, his senses returned one by one. He took a deep breath in and caught the strong, unmistakable sent of blood. The thick and coppery smell mixed with decay invaded his nostrils making him feel nauseous. What seemed like voices chattered incoherently at the very edge of his hearing in the dark. It reminded him of the times he had to perform with his piano. The maddening, almost silent but ever present sound of people watching, waiting, and babbling seemed to cut at his eardrums like fine blades. Slowly the dark was clearing, leaving him with vision that was slightly blurred. As far as he could tell he was in a box-like room with no doors or windows and seemed to be lit by an ambient light with no source. The walls, floor and ceiling were painted a dull black just visible under coats of smeared and splattered blood.
He shivered as the sensation of being cold and wet came to his attention next

The darkness was thick. Soul felt like he was floating in inky blackness but he couldn't move. There was something almost comforting about the void. Like it was a reflection of the loss he felt; a cold, endless nothing that was slowly becoming part of him. He was no longer in darkness, he was the darkness. Laughter echoed from nowhere in particular and seemed to surround him.
"What's the point? Hhahaha What is the point? HAHAHAHAHAHA!!"
"Soul?" Stein asked. Soul hadn't said a word since he sank to his knees. He stayed so perfectly still it was as if Soul had been replaced with a statue of grief. Then he began to laugh. Quietly at first but quickly growing until it filled the space and echoed off the walls. Soul lunged forward with out warning, swinging a transformed arm wildly but Stein was ready. He stepped back and to the side allowing the maddened teen to fly passed. Soul babbled insanely as his attack missed landing him hard on the floor.

Soul was lost in thought as he wandered through the winding halls but they were broken as he opened his locker and letters spilled out onto his feet and floor. There was nothing unusual about this except the numbers had increased (again) and the content of the letters had changed slightly. The silly admiration had been replaced with sympathy in some and the requests for partnership had become more hopeful/urgent in all. He sighed showing only irritation on the outside but he was outraged on the inside. The thought of having someone else as a partner made him ill and the repeated and yearning requests insulted him completely. He was going to have a goooooddd bonfire with these tonight.
"They should know I'd never replace Maka!" He said savagely to himself before a new realization came over him bringing fresh horror. Sure, he would never ever replace Maka, but she was no longer here. He had known of people losing their partners in the past and eventually being re-partnered but it th

There was a pounding in the dark. It seemed so close and so far away at the same time. Slowly the pounding turned to a throb and settled at the back of her head. The terrible ache slowly pulled Maka from the dark pit of unconsciousness. Her head was splitting but that wasn't all that hurt. The pain in her bloodless arms was horrible and increased until it rivaled her aching head. She opened her eyes a little but that did nothing to remove the darkness. From what she could gather with her other senses she was in a large room, chained against what felt like a stone wall and was hanging by her wrists an unknown distance off the floor. There were no sounds in the dark except for the occasional clink of her chains as she slowly swayed back and forth.
Maka hung in the darkness and silence with nothing but her pain and thoughts to keep her company. Eventually she realized she had no idea how she had gotten here or how long she had been here. She tried to think through the pain to drag f

Thank God it was Saturday. Soul didn't think he could have made it through a day of classes and training after that night. Thankfully Maka had drifted back to sleep after an hour or so but he had remained wake and staring at the ceiling deep in thought for the remainder of the night. Maka had been very worried about him and would be again when she woke up, he knew, but he was determined never to tell her about what was bothering him. If she knew the nightmares he had, the horrors he had seen and was responsible for, she would leave him. That, after all, would be the only logical move after finding out that her lover, long time friend, and weapon was capable of such evil thoughts. Just thinking of Maka gazing at him with wide fearful eyes as she left him forever tore his heart apart. He loved her too damn much to allow that to happen! Little Imp be damned, if he ever failed he would FIND a way to end his life.
The morning light was gaining intensity as it poured through his window

Somewhere not far away an evil presence hangs in sheltered darkness. It wasn't a being as much as an existence in a large room almost completely devoid of light. In the center of the cavernous void weak light was thrown pitifully into the endless black by a single ball. The flickering light peeled the darkness from the front of a single woman. She wore black cloths from head to foot which made her body seem to melt into and merge with the inky black.
Her arms were outstretched towards the ball throwing light over a snake tattoo on each arm. She could feel the presence all around her in the dark. It was still most of the time but very recently it had begun to grow restless. It would shift occasionally like a caged animal sending shivers down her spine. It was terrifying but it had power; power she needed. Others might be afraid of the presence but she wasn't. In fact she had sought it out. She had managed to harness bits and pieces of it here and there with her black and violet cl

"Lullaby, and goodnight, go to sleep my darling~" Chrona sang softly to the infant in her arms. The little girl however was not swayed by her mother's singing. She waved a plump arm around reaching for her mother's hair. She laughed and squirmed a little. Chrona sighed.
"Please go to sleep Allegra." She told the infant in exasperation.
"Now Chrona, why would you want her to sleep? Her brothers and sisters are going to be visiting soon." her husband's voice echoed from the doorway. Chrona turned to see the golden eyes that belonged to her spouse.
"Kid, I don't want her to be cranky." Kid chuckled. He ran a hand through his black hair that now sported three complete sanzu stripes.
"You are such a good mother." He approached her and tipped up her face.
"But I prefer it when you call me Death." He pecked her lips lightly. Even after centuries, hell, even millennia of marriage she still blushed when he acted romantic. It was just another thing the

She sat still as Kid began cutting her hair. She was wearing a loose blue dress adorned in frills and ribbons. She smiled at the feeling of the brush running through her hair. She felt uncomfortable being so near someone holding sharp objects. She cringed when she heard the first snip. The snips were slow and precise evening out her pink hair. Her blue eyes watched in the mirror as the drag clad Kid cut her hair. His fingers combed lovingly through her locks. His fingers were agile and completed their job rather quickly. He smiled in satisfaction at the results.

He had lived so long, seen so many eras come and go. He was over five thousand years old. He was arguably one of the most powerful beings in the world; he was the closest thing they had to God. But despite these facts he couldn't even protect the two people he cared for most. His wife and son. His wife Maria, that pure, innocent soul, died because of his ignorance. Then his son, his only one left of his bizarre little family, was kidnapped by the man who tormented his wife's psyche. Somewhat ironic he thought. Kid, his son, his only child, Maria's child. He was God and he couldn't even protect two people.

"What about Aiko?" Chrona asked looking up from her book.
"I don't know, it seems a little too common." Marie remarked.
"Oh, um, what about Minako?"
"Beautiful child, maybe but I think the name should pertain more to personality rather than appearance."
Marie and Chrona were sitting in the living room curled up on the couch with steaming cups of tea. They both had books full of names and their meanings. Stein hadn't returned yet so the two women decided to take some time to discuss potential names for the little one. It was unlikely Kid would be back before the birth so the task of choosing a name had to go to Chrona. The pair hadn't the chance to discuss names during their short reunion.

It was another day for the Witches Mass. The witches were eating in the grand hall, the guest of honor being Chrona the Holy Mother. The rescue party knew that they wouldn't stand a chance as long as Chrona was surrounded by her guardians. The one thing they had learned from their time here was that they only left her alone while she bathed. Even then, there were minor witches attending her in the private bath. That was the time they planned to strike. Maka and one of the Thompson sisters would accompany her as bath attendants and would grab her, hold her hostage using the other had back up until they escaped. It was crude plan but for now it was all they had, little did they know what conflict was transpiring at the other end of the table.

Chrona was bouncing her now year old daughter in her arms. Chrona was in a conservative blue dress and Azalea was in a concoction of pink frills and ruffles. Kid was standing next to them, every bit a proud papa as everybody said their congratulations. Students and teachers alike attended, bringing gifts. Shinigami had made the once small planned affair in a huge event. There was catering, a band, decorations up the ying yang.

Chrona fiddled with her new uniform. Against her will, she was going back to school. She cowered behind Maka. Shinigami-sama had insisted she go back to lass and take a break from mothering for awhile. Everyone seemed to be staring at her; she dearly hoped that Ragnarok would wake up and keep her company. Her body was still very weak and unable to summon Ragnarok. She followed Maka to class. It was bizarre being taught by a man she now acknowledged as father. At one point she went to the bathroom trying to remember the school layout. She came out and found two boys standing in an empty hallway. Thanks to a recent prank from Black*Star all the bathrooms near the class were temporarily closed.
