“Hey, you're all ready to play right?” Yuffie happily skipped back from the last turn, already more than ready to get yours started. “I hope you're ready, because I'm on fire.”
“Yes ma'am I sure am, and I've already picked out my item. I figured you were in a hurry, so I didn't wait.” The item you'd chosen was a complete mystery to you though. It was a long red cord with small, blue, beads located in seemingly random areas. “I know I've seen this item somewhere before, but I really have no idea where.”
Yuffie tilted her head and pushed out her lips, just as confused as you were. “I think that belongs to Seymour, I could be wrong though,”
“You're correct Yuffie. Perhaps I should have used a more recognizable item though. May I?” He held out his hand, exposing his abnormally pointed fingers. You tried not to look, but found yourself drawn to them. Realizing you were too busy staring

Looking in on the horrid scene in front of you made you want to cry. How could it have gotten this bad, this fast? “Oh god, this is a complete disaster. Why did I have to go and lie?” You were away from the kitchen for only seconds, and somehow your miso base had started boiling out of the pot and dripping onto the stove below, each drip landing with a loud hissing sound as it sizzled on the burner. As if that wasn't bad enough, your mackerel was burned past the point of recognition and the house smelled like a bonfire. “There's no way I can salvage any of this.” Knowing Uryu would be here at any moment, you dumped out your failed attempt at cooking and brought out your secret weapon. Instant miso, and mackerel, from a can. “I really hope this doesn't taste as gross as it looks.” There was a knock at your door, your time was up. “Come in!” You shoved the evidence down to the bottom of your trash can and quickly rushed to the door

After the last turn Taro seemed to have mellowed out. You didn't know what had happened, but you were glad it did. “It's about time. Do you have any idea how boring it is to just sit and wait like that? No? Well let me tell you, it's boring.” Already at the pile of items, you pressed your fingers to your chin and thought a moment before pulling a thick, hard back book from the pile. “What, in the world kind of book is this?” There were very few words inside, It was almost completely numbers and symbols.
“I doubt you would understand, even if I told you.” With one quick motion, Gill snatched the book away from you and held it against his chest protectively. Lifting his nose into the air, he passed by you and began making his way to the willow.

Just after sunrise, the sound of busy little birds chirping outside of your window caused you to stir. “I swear those birds are the best alarm clock in the world. And they're free.” Expecting to find Sephiroth sleeping next to you, you rolled over and prepared to hug him. When you rolled over, however, all you found was a small piece of paper. Figuring he'd gone out again, you promptly opened the note and read it.
“I made my goal to surprise you daily. Since I said that, I don't believe I've surprised you once. As you know, I don't particularly enjoy failure, which brings up the reason for this letter. I have prepared a little adventure for you. You will need to find my location using only the clues I give you. If you succeed, there will be another surprise awaiting you.

Kadaj sent you a hate filled glare. “I'd stop your complaining if I were you, I just might make you check the entire building for a second time.” Even in the dimly lit building, you could see that Kadaj and his brothers were just as tired as you were. Still, they wouldn't give up the search. “Come on, we're almost done with this wing.” Pushing past you, Kadaj forced open a heavy metal door. Behind it was the remains of what looked like a laboratory. “You search with me. I need to make sure you don't decide to take a nap.”

The small, doorless, windowless room echoed with the sound of your weak heart beating. You had been promised judgment, but that seemed like a long time ago. Instead of judgment what you received was silence, loneliness and fear. You had no idea how long you'd been shackled to the cold stone wall, but if you stayed like this much longer, you knew you would go mad. Perhaps this was your punishment. Though your body felt weak from lack of movement, and your head ached from lack of sleep, your mind remained strong and your spirit unbroken. You wouldn't let Ghirahim win, especially not when you'd done so little to provoke him. The wall in front of you grew fuzzy, as if they were fading away. You'd seen this enough times now to know what it meant, Ghirahim was coming. His smirking face phased through the wall, immediately filling you with rage.
His smirk widened as he entered the room with a small bowl of a grey, scentless, shapeless food.“Good morning

“Man, if it was any hotter out here, I might melt.” The harsh sun beat down on you causing little beads of sweat to form on your furrowed brow. You had only been outside a few minutes, but you were already daydreaming about being inside a cool, air-conditioned building. “Just a little further, I can do this.” Though the sun was glaring off of the smooth pavement, you could see your final destination, the ice cream shop. Being able to see your goal gave you the little boost you needed to make it there. You swung both glass doors open and took a deep breath of the cool air in. “Ah, sweet, sweet, air-conditioning.”
“I've never seen someone get so worked up over air-conditioning before. You must be really bad with heat huh?” Unable to miss your rather loud entrance, Sora greeted you with a smile. “I'm glad you could make it.”

Loud, angry voices filled the narrow hallway just outside of your small room. For the last half hour or so, Loz and Kadaj had been in a rather heated argument. Though them arguing wasn't uncommon, the subject they were fighting about worried you. “No, I will not calm down, I won't stand for this any longer. Yazoo has practically abandoned us brother. Everything he does revolves around that, that female. I want her gone, and I want her gone now. And if you won't remove her from this house, I will.”
Your door swung open with such force, the doorknob became deeply imbedded in the wall. “W-what did I do?” You had no idea what had caused Kadaj's sudden outburst, but judging by the look on his face, nothing you said or did would be enough to calm him down.

Now, he was risking starting one, all for a single scroll. You out from your hiding place at the dozens of men protecting a single small building.

Kabuto answered you with a snort. “That may be true, but we aren't supposed to get rid of them, we're supposed to avoid them.”

Everything outside was completely still and silent, even the insects. Only a few dim, flickering torches were left burning to guide you through the sleeping camp, making for an eerie scene. You followed Eren away from the protection of the camp walls and straight into danger. Normally you wouldn't have questioned his judgment, but this latest idea of his just seemed completely reckless. “Eren, I really don't think this is a very good idea. We could get in a lot of trouble, or worse. What if the Titans show up? There's no way we can take them alone, we can barely do anything to stop them even when everyone's fighting together.”

Sitting by the bedside, Kotone gently pressed her palm on his forehead. “You really need to stay away from the rain, you know?

A day that was born of the brightest light
Has now shattered like crystals in the sinking dark
Where once the spirit was unfettered and free
Now it weeps painfully in a cage of thorns
Blood is drawn from its tender flesh
And drips slowly down to mark the skin
A tattoo of pain forever remembered
By a ghost that lives within
There is emptiness in this void
A cold and lonely song of existence
A solemn note born from the sheer magnitude of the silence
That it deafens both the heart and mind
In the quiet serenity of utter despair
What is born from the lack of a sense of hope?
A cold determination to steal the future
From the wanton wheel of fate...

Warm blood drips upon the pearl white snow
freezing into droplets that shine and glow
Red like the colour of his once livid cheeks
It frames the sculpture I have carved on this peak
An artwork made so terrifyingly sublime
I believe that such a thing would be condemned as a crime
But woe betide the unfortunate soul
For the poor man stumbled into the freezing cold...
I remember his features in his moment of death
Hope and despair, intermingled as one
A shine of reality as he opens the door
and steps into the hell from the days of yore
From then he has passed into my loving care
His body as a shell and so I lay it bare
I paint it with colours, to frame the moment of death
and lay it with the others in the mountain's breast
Here in the silence, within the womb of the earth
You can view the masterpiece that I have birthed
A giant of corpses, sewn with flesh
Tattooed with the faces of eternal rest...

You sighed and pushed past the growing sea of people who had gathered to see the striking advertisement. It might have been exciting to watch, but it wasn't close to the glamour and glory people would have thought of when working for any circus troupe, including Sky's Limit.

The breath of a haunting melody drifted towards the traveler’s ears. It far surpassed any song he had ever heard: it was so full of longing, so full of life.
Where is that coming from? he wondered as his feet seemed to carry him towards the music. The more he traversed through the wilderness, the louder the song grew until he could clearly make out the voice of a girl singing past the thick trees.
It’s not too far now…
What lay beyond the trees was unlike anything the traveler had ever seen: a cage wound of steel bars molded into intricately curved designs complete with lush greenery, a dainty little bed, and in the center of it all, sitting on a tall branch in a tree like a tame bird, was a girl.
Unlike her song, this girl was plain. She did not have the fanciful garments that matched her voice. No. She had nothing but dull brown silken fabric blowing softly in the spring breeze, and her hair did the same.

Laciport was perhaps the second largest sandship port only being beaten by Issao further towards the east. It was built on one of the world's last remaining plots of fresh soil and hard rock protected from the desertification process of the Sandsea. It wasn't just the geography make-up of Laciport that had made it so prosperous in such a parched environment; the residents and the city officials had done their part, too.
When a plot of land looked like it was going to be exhausted of nutrients and food for livestock, the farmers would switch plantations, and the ranchers would move their livestock away. The mayor had limited each citizen to an equal ration of water for both the rich and the poor guaranteeing a slow, but steady supply each day.

For she was, of course. As the only female in a group of largely single males, she would doubtless have been perceived as such whether or not it was actually the case. But, he thought to himself in a detached fashion, in her case it was entirely true.

There seemed to be no-one who could say besides God, and at that time I was finding it increasingly difficult to communicate with Him.

FlyingSing unto my heart my dearest one,Flying in Free Verse More Like This
Allow me to know that you are the one.
Tell me now how to know,
When I just want you to show,
How my heart loves you so.
By and by the world hears me cry,
So I guess this is goodbye.
But how can this be?
When you're the one for me?
We gave to each other,
When the world would have falter.
But I guess the time is of the ages,
Just like when we turn the pages.
Things around us are always changing,
Just like the endless seasons.
But that when I know,
That the world is a show,
I can lift my head up to the sky,
For I know I can really fly!

Sing unto me,
Say how you know me and care for me.
Say that you know how things could have been,
And the way things would be,
Here I am to be alone,
Trying my hardest to atone.
Do not weep over this day,
For I did not fall away.
I will lift my head knowing my sins,
Battling this fight I must always win!

Serving The WarThings are so silent now,Serving The War in Free Verse More Like This
here in the falling snow.
My senses tell me that they are there,
a life I had to leave behind.
Dancing gently in the falling snow,
I smile watching my children go,
Playing to and fro with the falling snow.
My eyes water in happiness,
But I know they are not really there,
Not caught in this war of the land.
I hear the laughter and whispering,
I know that my love one is thinking of me.
I close my eyes and listen,
I know that my love is there.
I am a solider in this war,
I will serve till it over,
When I can return to my lover,
And say that it's over.

You feel unloved.
Feel the whole world is out after you.
But I'm here, I'm here for you.
And I promise you, we'll see it through.
You need a laugh or two?
Well that's what I do.
So don't be blue.
I'll be here for you.
And I promise we'll see it all through...
Hold onto those dreams.
Let out all those screams.
Because no matter how hard it all seems...
In the end it will all be redeemed...
So hold on.
Life's not done.
So hold on...
Let out your hair.
In the sunlights glare.
Let the whole world know...
That you're here to glow.
Life is too short.
