Watch and Wait

He waited a long time, watching her hair grow a little bit more every day. She probably didn't notice the growth going on. After all, she was the one who dealt with it most as the days went by -- washing it, combing it, styling it just so that the feathered ends kept their texture, and she could leave with a confident smile on her face... even if she didn't quite like how it looked. "I want it long again," she said out of the blue one day. It had been a pretty humid day, and the result turned her usually-compliant gold strands into a mess of static on her head. She'd grown frustrated, a trait he'd never thought she'd display over something

Getting almost physically kicked out of Callie's house was worth it. Some time after his graduation, there was a sense of quiet disdain when the end of summer started to approach. The happy vacations as he had to figure out his future (and pushed it off) began to grow somber, a hint of blueness to them as obvious as the streak through his friend's hair. Though she was good at hiding it for the most part, the partings they had nightly when he had to return home was full of her crossed arms and a pout... with a trembling bottom lip. He'd known her all these years, all this time -- and he knew the thoughts that went through her mind. Curse thei

Try Again

Sit at the computer, stare at the screen Look at how it blinks, hiding the words unseen Hover the fingers toward the keys Stop, pause, tilt of the head, sigh and walk away. Try again, try again, try again. Writing something on command isn't easy It's unlike drawing doodles in a notebook where stick figures fight and notes are lost because words can't just flow by opening those floodgates. Try again, try again, try again. Smelling of oil, sopping wet plop back in the computer chair and flick on the screen stare at the blinking light, the poetry yet to write, yet to be seen. Write for another, write by this date Do it this way, do it that

Please don't remind me. The pain in my jaw is enough of a reminder as are the crescent-shapes carved into my skin and the way my heart throbs in my head and drowns out the noise except for those bells. The alarm bells. Please don't remind me. It's a faulty system built into the mind and bones of a faulty person. A small thing, a tiny thing is a trigger Punctuation where it never is, or snide remarks about "You're being irrational." It sets off the bells faster than you can blink-- Before I know it, I can't swallow I can't see or hear and I most definitely Cannot breathe. The world shrinks to a pinprick while thoughts collide and crash wi

NOCT2 -- Round Two, 'Disadvantage'

The arena smelled putrid. A toxic had successfully landed on Kirk at the start of the battle, and even when he was in the skies, it was obvious to tell that his body was rotting from the inside because of it. The battle was one-sided from the moment it began like this, with Kirk diving in alone as Aten surrounded herself in the tall grass, her sleek body hidden as she trotted around, analyzing the situation. The Sylveon glared with a bright blue gaze up at the giant chicken in the sky -- if they were going to lose the fight, it would be due to his rashness. Who will protect Kineta now, when you die? Though it was obvious Aten should have t

One of the first things they did when they were free from the woes of a world's end... was run to a park. One of the first things, that is, since the real first things that happened were eating actual food until they were full, showering under hot water, and sleeping in actual beds with the hum of air conditioning accompanying their soft breaths of rest. They found the park a few days after settling in this little corner of a city bustling with people. Suburbs were always rife with life, and yet quiet and distance from the screeches of car tires and smell of smog -- more when they found this little serene spot of green in amidst the building

For a creature that fed off ... well, they'd learned it could be just about anything in order to stave off the Second Hunger... one may think Autumn's first stumble into the lush area of the Fae Realms would be to devour the spread of food that would await them. However, in spite of how delicious it all looked (cooked meats! Steamed veggies! SPOONS.), they wanted to experience something much more different. Exploration brought the wormie to a door pressed a bit into the trunk of a tree, just a tad shorter than they were. Judging by how tall the gnarled trunk of the tree was, however, they'd probably be able to stand fully once inside -- and

Imagine a place so alive it must be a paradise. First, picture the trees. Tall columns of dark, slickened bark like undergrown giants, large beyond all reason. Every space is filled with life: the croaks of little frogs from nearly every pad of green, the ripples on the puddles or hidden spots of water as they leap into the safety of underbrush. Above and between, vines and branches clutch to each other, reaching for a shaft of sky’s light. The songs of birds. A twitch of fur at a trunk hole. Single file ants biting at the giant’s feet and peeling it away in miniscule pieces to rebuild and feed their hungry queen. But, in reply, s

Annelise was a beautiful name, and she happened to be a beautiful woman. When she picked herself up into the black van that had stopped at her Compound to pick her up, Esper sat up against the other side, grasping to the arm rest with two small hands. His eyes were wide as Annelise adjusted herself in the seat beside him, tugging at the shorts she wore to cover more of her leg, frowning down at the v-cut of the shirt she wore. It was a warm day in the west, and even under the air conditioning of the van, her pale skin glistened with faint perspiration. She caught Esper staring as she put on the seatbelt, and a uniformed attendant rolled the

He had her fooled for a long time. Surely it was probably his memory that aided him in how easily he moved across their little apartment... and how he knew the order his clothes were always put away, so that what he wore was never mismatched. His touch had to have gotten stronger as his sight got worse and worse, and yet he never seemed the worse for wear about it. Always, an effortless smile came to his face, his head turning to the direction down to the perfect centimeter of where her voice filtered. Always, his movements were practiced to give up the ruse that he was looking at what he did, that he saw where his hands went and what was p

Don't Look Under the Bed

The only rule we had when we were children was to never look under the bed. Not just any bed, but the bed of our mother. She hid something down beneath the bed that we weren't meant to see. Some great secret protected by the boogeyman, she would tell us. "If you get on your hands and knees and try to look... he'll jump out! And grab you!" After the threat was made, she pounced on either myself or my brother, laughing and tickling until we were nothing but a pile of small giggles on the floor. We took the words seriously, however. Running into the room to awaken our parents on holidays like birthdays or Christmas, or Thanksgiving, any of the
