The VowsThe Vows by ~unusedEmotion
We stood at the altar
In the fresh aesthetics of spring
You took my hand in yours
And slid on that fateful ring
I wore a fair dress
Clothed in a flurry of white
The poison smile
On my wedding, the only blight
So beautiful it was
My dress stained red
Our passion unbidden
I took off your head
We promised love
Till death do us part
And it shall
For your head, take my heart
My dear, my darling
Forget me not
Honor our righteous vows
And love me till I rot
We vowed forever
Let my love
Bury us together
TherapyWhen I see ghosts they look perfectly real and solid -- like a living human being. They are not misty; I can't see through them; they don't wear sheets or bloody mummy bandages. They don't have their heads tucked under their arms. They just look like ordinary people, in living color, and sometimes it is hard to tell who is a ghost.Therapy by ~QueenWolf12

"Anne, do you feel safe here?" the therapist asks. "Come on, talk to me."
I don't like him. He's white as a sheet with splotchy skin and dark rings under his eyes. He looks like the ghost of a scarecrow wearing a suit with that long body of his. Like someone took him and stretched him out like play-dough.
"Anne, is there anything wrong?"
I hug Sharebear close and bury my face into his soft fur.
Dr. Scarecrow taps his yellow nails repeatedly on the arm of his chair.
Tap! Tap! Tap!

In our very own way
We were born with special talents
And we'll use them
To paint the world we live in
With the click of a button
We can capture the perfect moment
A sunset on the beach
Or a walk in the park
Snow fall in the city
Or a dog's affection for a child
We live to paint the world with amazing photographs
A pen & a paper
Are our precious tools
We use them to tell you stories
Or make your next favorite song
They help us write picturesque poems
Or share the latest current events
We live to paint the world with the beauty of words
We draw the world's beauty
With so many colorful tools
Like paint, crayons, ink, and pastels
They help us recreate the beauty around us
And put into portrait our everyday lives
We live to paint the world with colors of every kind

October Full MoonYour blood-red fruit in the sky let my soul flow,October Full Moon by *Malintra-Shadowmoon
You draw me slowly to yearning distances,
And while the crows’ croaks echo on foggy fields,
I travel to the stars, full of nostalgia.
The wind in the willows whistles with sorrowful flute tune,
And while I follow you to the destinations of our dreams,
I cast a glance at the scenery full of fruits.
From the depth of the earth, song and whisper raise.
Our love was already gone before it began.
I could only search but I never found you.
The sand of the hourglass vanished between our hands,
I had to get over the unavoidable farewell.
The gossamers of past dreams
Cover my thoughts like a web.
They make the brown-colored leafless trees shake
As well as my walk.
October full moon, take me with you on the journey.
Help me to fly to the other side of summer.
In a magical, eternal way
You and I will walk together under the fresh green leaves.

Bystander ~ SerodousBystander ~ Serodous by ~Serodous
It's madness, we the human race
We plague our minds of agony over the futures we will live
But deep inside, we all beg for a post apocalyptic hell to call our own
Standing from a distance, any would call us insane
Are we the hunters of pain?
The glorifiers of ash and dust?
The mother that bore this land, its final and graceless stand
We the sickness that only falls further
The parasite of it’s host, yet so small in the world
We live in the mists of imagination, and conform to a creation of our own
A monster we call society, A monster we call civilization
A monster we let grow to powerful, it is out of our control
But that’s the funny thing about a monster that doesn’t exists
We can just forget it?
We let our faults linger with us, and blame everyone else
Even if it turns man on man, and maturity on native instinct
Survival is in our hearts; we are the most intelligent race
Claimed by the only self-aware creature on a rock

They let go.Don't let go.They let go. by ~Skyons
Holding hands they ran through the pitch black forest.
Don't let go.
With nothing but the blazing fire from behind to guide them forward.
Don't let go.
Twigs grabbed at their ankles and necks as if to stop them.
Don't let go.
Hands gripped tight as they pulled each other on.
Don't let go.
Bullets flew past their heads like flies.
Don't let go.
With legs weak but hearts strong, they carried on.
Don't let go.
And the beating of the war drums crawling ever so closer.
Don't let go.
When suddenly they stopped.
Don't let go.
And they stood there, at the edge of the world.
Don't let go.
Staring down into eternal abyss.
Don't let go.
Her eyes met his, full of love and a bittersweet sadness as she realized that this was it.
Don't let go.
He looked down at his blood stained hand, still tightly gripping hers.
Don't let go.
The fire behind drew closer and the war drums beat faster.
The Legendary Irish PeisteIn the sixties, Captain Lionel Leslie tried to lure the monsters of Connemara in county Galway to appear on the surface. He undertook his first experiment in October 1965 in Lough Fadda. Leslie obtained the approval to spring in the lake with dynamite. It was his aim to scare the monster with the shock. 10 seconds after the detonation of 2 kilogram explosives, he saw that a black something appeared. Unfortunately the lake was so troubled by the explosion that it was difficult to recognize details. But what he saw was enough to convince the people of the existence of a monster in the lake.The Legendary Irish Peiste by *Malintra-Shadowmoon
In October 1967, Leslie planned to fish out Lough Fadda with a net. His efforts stayed without any success. But in 1968, the Captain planned with a team to search Lough Nahooin bei Claddaghduff (Galway) with the help of a net. It was a little lake, only 90 meters wide and 75 meters broad. They were convinced to find the monster because five months ago, a farmer who lived nearby Stephen Coyne

St. Valentines Day in the year 1900 granted brilliant sunshine to the village of Woodend near Melbourne (Australia). On this day, the Applegate College usually undertook a school excursion in the nearer surrounding of the village. In the early morning, a group of schoolgirls with their teachers set out for a picnic to one of the famous outing places. In the evening, four of them had disappeared, three of them were never seen again.
According to the report, a group of schoolgirls with their teachers drove out for a picnic at Hanging Rock. This geological rock group of rocks and monoliths is several million years old and of vulcanic origin. Around the turn of the century , it was a famous outing place.
The excursion group consisted of 19 girls, most of them were over 10 years old. They were accompanied by their two teachers, Diane de Poitiers and Greta McCraw. At Saturday morning, the group set out to a 7 kilometers far place. They ate there and
Highly Sensitive PeopleThe first human job sharing might have been into shaman and non-shaman, with other words: HSP and non-HSP. The earliest task of a shaman or High Sensitive were probably the observation, interpretation and influencing of nature. It was HSPs who recognized the relations between man and nature, observed the weather cycles and interpreted the most favourable time for cultivation, harvesting or chasing. They were mediators between mankind and the non-human or godly world and thus some kind of a primeval priest. The conjuration of natural demons by self-created images with the help of rhythms and plastic models and the creation of communication with the higher powers could be considered as beginnings of ceremony and art. Besides the priesthood, HSPs also dominated the domain of art and science. Further traditional responsibilities of High Sensitives were the tradition and archives. In addition, HSPs often were competent in healing and health, the wholeness and life-help. Another resort was tHighly Sensitive People by *Malintra-Shadowmoon

“Hello? Who are you?” She just stared at him, confused. She was only 15 years old, focused only on trying to find a cure for her mother.
“Blue Jay,” She replied simply.
The Loremaster had decided to leave the safety of the Guardian Tower in Paxia because of a prophecy his oracle had said only a week before. He was told that the Chosen One would soon make an appearance in the world of Lore. It was easy to say that he was ecstatic. He immediately left, sending a quick word to all of the corresponding Guardian Towers around Lore.
That’s where Blue Jay came into his little ‘fiasco’.
He was travelling with Sage Uldor who resided in Battleon. A few guards were following him because they believed that their leader would alway
Pretty Golden GirlThere once was a girl who was prettier than me.Pretty Golden Girl by ~GeorgiaKitty
Her hair shone like gold in the sunlight,
And her face was delicate and pure.
Whenever she was smiled,
They all sighed,
For she was their pretty golden girl.
Now, wherever she went,
They all swooned,
Unknown to just how under her spell they were.
It was said that when she laughed
The birds would sing,
And the world was a much happier place
When their pretty golden girl was pleased.
But I was never pleased, nor happy, nor joyful
To see the girl around the town.
For whenever she appeared,
Her magic made me vanish in the face of my peers.
So I took it upon myself,
To rid the world of her and make it more fair.
With knife in hand, and blood stained clothes,
Wounded body, and a face that was pretty no more.
Their pretty golden girl dead.
She had outshined me for far too long.

Bridgestone Castle – Courtyard
It is time.
The overlord of the newly-created Greater Thessian Republic began her walk down the long corridor. Her destination was the stone balcony that overlooked the courtyard below. In a few moments, she would present herself before the gathered prisoners as their new liege. It was then that she would offer her terms of capitulation to all of them.
Man-at-Arms had been the only member of her war council who had embraced her intentions. Still, she understood the reservations of her other trusted commanders. Each of them had lost a great number of men under their command. They desired blood to quench their thirst for vengeance. However, she also understood that the Bridgestone soldiers that were captured during the invasion were merely defending their homes. It had been the same as what she and

The familiar scent of the salty sea air greeted him as he and his two companions rode into the port city.
It has been ages since I was last here.
He took a brief moment to inhale the breeze from the sea before pulling the dark hood of his cloak over his face. It was important that he not be recognized by anyone. Secrecy was to be maintained as he rode to the meeting which he had been summoned to attend.
As he looked out on the piers of the South Sea, he was greeted by the sight of dozens of ships and other merchant vessels. Even at the late hour, the crews of their respective berths were busy unloading their goods for trade or loading up with provisions to make for the sea once more.
Such a simplistic, but rewarding life, he thought as

Six Weeks After the Fall of Bridgestone
Alessa gazed out the window of her carriage as the beautiful countryside of Illus passed before her view. It never ceased to amaze her how different the landscape was in this province compared to Thessius.
Illus was home to some of the kingdom’s most beautiful fields, bountiful forests, and some of the rarest and most beautiful flowers she had ever seen. Thessius, by contrast, was mostly mountainous. Although it had its own fields and forests, it could not compare to what lay in Illus – her homeland.
Former homeland, she corrected herself. The Castle of Thessius in the mountain city of Seratra was her home, but Illus was the land where she had experienced life; it would always occupy a special place in her heart despite the current circumstances of h

When I walk into the classroom, I see people with plates and food. I grin as I sit down at my desk and pull out a deck of cards.
"You brought cards?" Julian, the kid that sits next to me, asks.
"Yep." I say as I shuffle. "Know how to play Egyptian War?"
My grin grows wider and I turn to face him. "Wanna play?"
Julian puts down the food he's eating and tilts his chin up while looking at me. "Challenge accepted."
I roll my eyes but deal out the cards. A few minutes into the game, Brandon walks over and claps Julian on the back. "What are you guys playing?"

deconstructing her suicide
and gnawing on regret--
because I always told her she was a star-child
born for better worlds and quiet days
alive at night and in the rain.
And as I lay on summer grass, damp with dew,
with only the moon to witness, and
with her head on my chest,
her breathing even and slow with the whisper of sleep,
I promised her that she would be fine.
But I am a liar--
white words turn black in time,
as she was no fool, no child, no blessed angel.
She was the girl who had demons in her veins
raking her wrists, pulling at her throat
bleeding in her eyes and staining her heart
she had storms that gave no warning,
screaming of death and despair;
some of which would last a day or a week,
and others which never ceased.
When I held her in my arms
she would always tremble for a moment
and then collapse and exhale sorrow
And when I kis

And millions and millions of planets, so distant and bright
And for us to be told we’re alone in the universe is a lie
There must be another species, that’s something we can’t deny
But some of us, with curiosity filling our minds
Investigates these stars, these planets
Hoping to find something hidden, something new for mankind
But some even fear, that which lies hidden is our end
But I do not know what to believe
They could bring peace, or tragedy
Though, from what we’ve seen, they are their own worst enemy
From these self-proclaimed “human beings”

And grant you hope.

It’s like a hurricane going at minimal pace
I don’t mind being alone, it’s where I finally understand the human race
I can’t describe it, the need to just hear myself plead
And I’m screaming about my sadness, locked out and down
Screaming about a hurricane until I let it all out
You see they whisper at me when I’m closing my eyes
When I open them up, the thoughts are screaming dark lies
Dreaming of a heartbeat, rescue me.
I say, I don’t mind being alone, it’s the only way I can be a part of a family
And I cannot remind you of how many times I hit my head against the wall
Waiting for the disease to crawl, I’m begging you just to listen to my health
As the clock counts down and the bastards count their wealth
I’m open, looking back on who I was to be, it was destiny - What are you doing looking at me?
You see it’s all perfectly fine just to be left behind
But when there are many shadows on the wall you can’t possibly

Alex was sensible enough to realize that a lot of good things were done in hospitals.
Lives were saved, broken bones were set, medical problems of all kinds were attended to…
…But as she slipped out of her room, and into the long, white, impersonal hallways of the Opelucid City Hospital, everything in her system seemed to resist the place, making her feel sick.
The hospital clothes made her skin crawl, and the floor felt cold under her bare feet.
Then there was the horrible smell of disinfectants…
No. She would not feel comfortable in any hospital, ever.
A chill running down her spine, Alex soundlessly made her way to the stair
Healing HeartClint’s arm rested under his head as he stared at the ceiling, he ground his teeth together as he thought of the upcoming mission. He would be partnered with Natasha and they would be going to India to deal with some foreign spies.

Going back would bring memories, some painful and some sweet while working with Natasha would bring nothing but fresh heartbreak.Healing Heart by ~Tris96

Dammit! The tower wobbled precariously as I tried, as carefully as humanly possible, to inch the block out of its foundations. I was the only one who seemed to be struggling. Stupid game... I'd quickly learnt that playing Jenga with L was instantly a losing battle from the word 'go'.
Oh yeah, we were playing Jenga. I wasn't trying to demolish a real building or anything.
I'd discovered that playing Jenga was L's superpower. I played Jenga like a normal person. L on the other hand... I swear he had some kind of x-ray vision that allowed him to see through the tower. He had some ridiculously perfect ability to know which blocks were loose and which weren't going anywhere without even having to touch them.
No wonder he'd chosen this when I'd pushed him into playing something with me. I knew how much he hated losing. Though I could tell that the game didn't offer any challenge to him, so maybe he'd chosen just to shut me up.
I could hardly complain though

Taking a towel off the rack, Ada stepped out from the tub and began drying herself off from her much-needed shower. While she had been able to wash off all of the blood and grime from her body, it wouldn’t even come close to wiping away the pain she carried within her heart. It had taken a colossal effort on her part to maintain her poise after reading Leon’s journal. If it hadn’t been for her battle with Umbrella One and the betrayal of her own organization when they had sent a wet work team after her, she might have already broken down from the weight of her sorrow. She’d had to continually remind herself that grieving now would not bring Leon back, and with that she had begun to feed on the brutal desire for revenge. Whatever it took, she would find his killer… and when she found him, she would take him apart piece by piece. Af
The Order of Celae: Appendix: The OrderThe Order of Celae is an order governed under the principal belief in the two spirits of Celae, Sol and Luna. Those who favour Sol in the Order, will likely be combattants. Those who favour Luna will likely be intellectuals who turn to invention over combat. The Mentor however, must remain a neutral individual in his/her leadership.The Order of Celae: Appendix: The Order by *aillin1
Fun Fact: Sol and Luna are similar to Yin and Yang, which inspired their lore. The difference is that the balance has been distributed differently and their characteristics are a personal interpretation of the opposing sides.
The Order is lead by a patriarch or matriarch addressed as "The Mentor". A Mentor chooses an apprentice to instruct and educate, and eventually take his/her place. Mentors are the single only person permitted to contribute knowledge into the Book of Celae, and they are the only ones who ever see the missing chapter which has come to be called "The Erilum Declarate". This chapter is said to dictate knowledge of

Worried glances passed over her but she paid them no heed, eyes flitting between the clock and the scratched watch on her wrist. The watch itself was a cheap plastic thing but it held so much more to her. It was his first present to her, the first of many as she was shown. The straps were a sparkling charcoal that glittered in the artificial light above her.
She cast another look at the clock on the wall, her hear constricting as the minutes slowly passed. Willing them to go faster, she felt a tentative hand on her shoulder.

And the wind felt so nice blowing against me and the grass so soft and green. But my Mistress is not happy. I don't understand why so I try to comfort her. She pulls her arm away and pulls a small ball out of her pocket. In her movement I saw six other of these objects attached to her belt and I am excited. Maybe I can go on a journey!

and caused more tools to fall, along with a thick wooden plank. The plank smacked against

Aleta Green-Cove slammed her back painfully to a cold stone wall. She panted quietly, her right hand slipping something the size of her palm into her trouser pocket. As she caught her breath, options careered through her mind. The way out of this cave system was only a few turns ahead but if she made a dash for it now, she would be seen.
A shuddering, echoing roar burst through the gaping dark tunnel entrance in the wall beside her. The tunnels here were enormous and stretched for miles. But they would have to, Aleta thought grimly, to be the home of such a gigantic beast.
"At least there's only one," she breathed softly. "More than one would be much, much worse."
Suddenly a screeching scream rushed through the tunnel. Aleta covered her ears with her hands, doubling over in an effort not to faint. She gasped as the screech stopped and she could move again. This was bad! It was getting closer.

She had been holed up in her room for two days now, forbidden by the Director himself to converse with other people in the programme out of respect of their privacy. She only left her haven for food or training.
During the second day, she started to think that she wasn't cut out
Unfair Chpt 25“Ugh, I give up with you people, honestly!” Cosmo sighed, aggravated by the excess of males around her. She tugged on the stray locks of hair that fell over her face, a frown forming between her eyebrows. “How Regina managed to put up with you three all these years is at a loss to me.”Unfair Chpt 25 by ~VerySecretAccount
The front foyer of their room was literally a bomb-site. Clothes were strewn left, right and centre. Pieces of litter scattered across the floor. The boys in question were sprawled over whatever clean space they came across.
“What’s it to you?” Dex ground out, still annoyed at what his father told him. He just couldn't believe it to be perfectly honest.
“What’s made you so grouchy ‘ey?” Ash questioned him. The joker’s attitude had been affected significantly since Regina’s disappearance. He didn’t have the same gleam in his eyes that usually possessed him.
“Back off Ash, he’s obviously troubled by Regina

“Hey Regina! Boss man told me that you were moved over here!” Frisha’s voice wafted through the door, chirpy and sweet. It left a bad taste in Regina’s mouth.
“Yeah, he did,” It’s not like I had a choice. Those words hung in the air but she refused to speak them. It wasn’t just her that had been forced to go through this; loads of people had been transferred here. They called it the ‘Asylum’ back at the man part of Pamila. She didn’t want to know why they named it that, hell; she didn’t even want to know they called it that.
Frisha pursed her lips into a pout, taking Regina’s shoulders to turn her around to face her.

ThoughtsYour touch is so soft and sweet and like an angel's skin it pulls me in.Thoughts by ~blind-runaway
Laying there, my body against your chest, as I listen to your heart beat; God, I feel so blessed.
Dear Lord, you put on this earth a boy that no one can afford, I never knew it could get so good, that someone this great could ever be real, but that's the way I feel.
He puts me up with you, up in that place where he fixed my heart that I thought was beyond repair.
Hold me tight and never let me depart for I gave you my whole heart; and when I'm in your arms it sets me free, when you pull me closer, and in so deep.
For the times you run your fingers through my hair, you say I'm your little angel flying in the sky, little do you know I want to be with you until the day I die.
After all, love isn't a plan. It doesn't have a beginning and certainly has no end; love happens and it is incredibly messy.
People around me can't understand the things I do or say; fighting so hard for something that could cause so much pain.

I screamed as I fell towards the water. It was like a nightmare, it felt like I was moving in slow motion. Even with my super speed I wouldn't be able to escape the water now.
A bunch of ideas that were impossible flashed through my head. I could freeze the water but humans would see. I could part the water but humans would see. I could simply fall and turn into a mermaid but humans would see!
There was nothing I could do now except accept my fate. They'll expose me and I'll never be able to go back home because I'll get arrested. But if I stay here I'll be a science experiment. I couldn't possibly wipe every student and teachers memories. I'm doomed.
This all flashed through my head in a second as I fell. Then I hit the water with a splash. The water engulfed me and bubbles tickled around me as they rose back to the surface. I floated there hovering over the bottom, not wanting to surface.
I'd never thought it'd end like this. I've put my entire

Natalie told me the class we had next was English. I didn't understand why they would need to teach us a language we already knew but I went anyway. As we took our seats a boy in front of us turned around to greet us.
"Hey I'm Collin. You're new here right?" he said addressing me.
"Yeah it's just temporary though, she's usually home-schooled and is seeing what school is like," Natalie added quickly thinking up a reason for my sudden disappearance tomorrow. I once again admired her quick wit. She would be a great lawyer.
"Yes that's right. I'm Marissa by the way," I answered.
"Nice one standing up to Stacy like that. It's about time someone told her off. I'm surprised she gave up so easily though," he added.
"Let's just say, I'm very persuasive," I said smirking at my inside joke.
"Alright class quiet now, the lessons starting," the teacher called out as he walked through the door.
The teacher began to hand out a bunch of rectangular blocks of paper.

As we made our way to the cafeteria I glanced around curiously at everything along the way. The school was a set of two rectangular building separated by a small courtyard in the middle. The building we were just in had 3 levels and housed all the classrooms.
The courtyard was filled with a bunch of decorated gardens with colourful flowers and the grass was a bright green. There were multiple tables placed strategically around and a few kids already sat in them with their lunches.
We headed toward the smaller building ahead and I began to smell food and hear noise as we got closer. Then I was hit by a huge wave of scents and noise as Natalie held open the door for Grace and I. I soon realised the building was actually one big room.
On one side of the room there was a large line of students. They all had trays and were filling their trays with different types of human food available from platters. There was a few adult humans behind the counter working a register

Three hours West of Skandor, the forest looked even more menacing. The grey trees were taller and thicker, the vines grew thorns and barbs, some of which looked poisonous, and the rivers and streams became rarer and rarer as they advanced. In addition, the forest was filled with SOUND. The chirping and chattering of birds and insects, the wind rustling through the dark leaves, the creaking of branches, and the occasional howl or roar of a distant beast.
Ruan guided the small group through the forest, followed closely by Taryn, who was holding a map and occasionally pointing things out. Ammil was next, followed by Maldor, who seemed ready for a fight at any given moment. Lienne brought up the rear, scanning the forest for signs of movement. At first, the five of them had talked about trivial things- the weather, the changes in their surroundings, the strange trees and animals they encountered. But it wasn't long before t

City hall and the area around it were buzzing with activity. There were Hunters all around- talking to each other, showing off their weapons, eating, buying from the stands that had sprung up overnight... The place was the busiest that Lienne had ever seen it.
Taryn had refused to tell her why it was so important they go. Ever since the disaster that had happened with Ashpelt, neither of them had been particularly excited about Hunting, not even Lienne. So when Taryn woke her and told her in an excited voice that it was important that they go to city hall, Lienne was naturally curious about what had broken his depression.
The focus of the attention seemed to be a notice almost as large as the notice board itself. The paper it was printed on was tinged a light blue, as opposed to the usual whites and yellows that appeared. The crowd gathered around it made it impossible for her to get close enough and see wh

Taryn woke up just before sunrise. It was a habit he had developed over that past few years- he found it easier to Hunt during the twilight hours- sunrise and sunset.
Lienne was still fast asleep. She lay on her side, twitching occasionally in her sleep. Probably dreaming. Taryn didn't know about what, and he wasn't going to ask.
"Lienne." He said softly, then raised his voice, "Lienne!"
"Mmmm..." She mumbled, still half asleep.
"Lienne! Wake up!"
"Do I have to?"
"Yes. we have a werewolf to kill."
Immediately, she jumped up from the bed, looked at him, and stared wide-eyed.
"Your eyes!" She exclaimed, "They're... Normal?"
"It happens. During sunrise and sunset." Although he couldn't see his own eyes, he knew that due to the light conditions his pupils were the size of a normal human's pupil

Now her question was about their homes strange origin. Myvin's facial expression changed a bit. He knew about the castle and its grim history. Fayne just stared at Myvin for a few more seconds in confusion. Was he going to say anything or just ignore her like he usually did? Silver eyes looked to the ground; Myvin took a deep breath and smiled at Fayne. "It's nothing you need to worry about. Don't listen to him, nothing happened here." He explained, his smile unwavering. Fayne poked out her lips and looked to the sky and turned around to look at the castle they called home. With sigh she turned back to the group with a smile.
Konnor tilted his head at Myvin's sudden change of face. A quick glare in Konnor's direction silenced any words that were to spill out of his mouth. He only shoved his hands into his jeans and hunched over a bit so a lock of white hair covered his left eye. Aiden just shook his head. "Guess we won't say anythin',

Chapter 1: Visitors
Dark town, dark castle, not-so-clichéd children.
The said children I'm talking are upstairs in the bathroom. The castle was located in the forest which was also located in a small town called Oryellies. Just because it was a huge and some-what royal-looking castle doesn't mean the family inside was of royal blood. In fact they weren't. The mother's name is not important and neither is the father's name so from here on out you, the reader, will know them as just mother and father or Mr. and Mrs. Pryna, for now. The castle itself was sold by some random Realtor who was trying his hardest to sell that house before it was torn down for the land it was built on. The place was just so beautiful and shouldn't be torn down for something as trivial as land. To describe this place would be to picture one of those old and somewhat sinister castles with the moss growing on the side of the place and the big pointy tops of the two towers that
Nothing Lasts Forever Chpt 14“What do you mean you’re an alien?” Ace asked his sister, his eyes wide with disbelief. Damien had adapted to the situation a lot quicker than Alexis would’ve thought. Then again, he did once room with Robin so she shouldn’t have been that surprised.Nothing Lasts Forever Chpt 14 by ~VerySecretAccount
A flare of jealousy enveloped her as she thought of Robin and Damien living with each other. She flushed and shook her head.
“I mean, Sammy, from before, told me all this shit about how I’m from a different galaxy thing and Robin is somehow connected to this. She told me that something was going to happen to us.” Alexis condensed it for all three of them; even she had some trouble understanding it.
“She did say that some people were going to try and come to ‘collect’ me.” She decided to refrain from going into any more detail due to the way the topic was heading, the last thing she wanted was Ace going ape shit in front of Damien.
Nothing Lasts Forever Chpt 13“Why do you think I honestly need someone with me while I do this?” Robin sighed, rolling her eyes. In one hand was a jagged knife and the other held her hair high in a bobble. Nero stared at her with concern whilst Kai chuckled somewhere in the background.Nothing Lasts Forever Chpt 13 by ~VerySecretAccount
“Don't girls get emotional about this type of stuff?” He asked, confused for once. He had offered to take over but Robin wouldn’t let him. She was too worried about him getting all emotional about it.
“Most girls yes but I have the time so I can grow it all back again.” She replied, pointing towards the door of her former apartment. She came back to do this and explain to Damien why she will be leaving.
“But still, isn’t it a primary code in your brains to get emotional about hair?” Nero cried, trying to get her to see the point he was trying to make.
“You’re just dragging this on Nero, just let me cut and you can cry over it later.” With a ragged movement
Nothing Lasts Forever Chpt 12“What do I have to do first mother?” Robin asked her mother.Nothing Lasts Forever Chpt 12 by ~VerySecretAccount
“First, you have to get people on your side. You need to get people you can trust and rely on. Only bring up three people at the maximum. Too many people will attract unwanted attention from your enemies, even your best friend.” Her mother complied.
Robin sighed unhappily, knowing what was going to come next. She was going to have to signal Him. Fucks sake this was going bad. She knew that she could trust Him but he could just take things too bloody well far.
Despite the upcoming events, she still kept her identity carefully concealed beneath the façade that she had acquired over the many years of her existence. Robin knew that she wouldn’t be exhausted by the prospect of keeping up the mirage but it could help her if she let it go once in a while.
She was walking along the snowy paths when she finally noticed something. A crackling TV was spitting out the news in the pub to her left.
Nothing Lasts Forever Chpt 11Damien sat across the table from Alexis, watching the steam rise from the cup of tea in her hands. Her blue eyes were emotionless, lacking that spark he had seen the first time they met. He watched as the wind played with her silver hair and her long, wolf ears twitched at every sound that was made outside the hotel room.Nothing Lasts Forever Chpt 11 by ~VerySecretAccount
Alexis, on the other hand, had her mind going at full speed. What the hell was he doing here? Not that she was complaining at all.
They had sat like this for a while now; the only movement was Alexis tacking quick sips from her mug. The air that settled around them was fragile; as if any sudden movement was made it would shatter like brittle glass. For a while, Damien had just taken this time to observe her, it was the first time he had been able to sit comfortable like this with someone. When he was with Robin, he could feel the tension in her muscles, ready to pounce at any given moment.
"What's your name?" Alexis whispered; her eyes trained on the cup, r

She put her lips on the fountain when we were kids.
I've kissed too many people to still be mad about it.
The first time she slept in my bed I had visions
of my grandfather decaying in his coffin.
(The scuttle of tiny legs and a far away buzzing)
I woke up to a thousand pairs of eyes staring at me.
Hers were closed, but her mouth started moving.
“People who dream about the dead often attract flies.
I’ll tell you my nightmares if you tell me yours.”
It was winter and the windows were closed.
There are flowers that bloom once in a life time.
The things I see during the day prepare me for the night.
A family moved into her old house.
They don’t leave beer cans on the front porch.
For some reason that makes me sick.
The only picture I didn't burn is of her
looking past the lens and straight into my eyes.
Everything else about that life is gone.
Sometimes even me.
This is the worst day to tell me I’m blind
The Evanescent ManHe’s sitting at the dinner table, waiting for me when I open the door. His wrinkled hands are clasped around each other, spindly fingers locked tight like manacles, so still he could be made of stone. He doesn’t look up, he doesn’t need to, he knows me well like an old friend. And it wells up within my chest, a swelling, building ache that’s growing hard and heavy. I drop the groceries, drop my keys, clink as they hit the floor, kick off my shoes andThe Evanescent Man by ~blubbityblub
The fingers come unlaced. He smoothes a crease in his threadbare black suit; the suit that's full of darkness, swallowing any light that hits it. It’s the same thing he did the last time he came, and I realize that I’ve forgotten him; I’ve forgotten what he meant, what he did, what he took from me. He takes a breath, and I am a boy again, I think, everything is too bright and sharp, the colors saturated and vibrant. My legs don’t ache anymore, my head is full of hair, I

Helen slowly woke up and found herself in a king-size bed with thick warm silver blankets and pillows and wearing a blue sleep gown. The bedroom had glass walls, build-in light domes, a stain glass window behind her bed, and a fluffy floor. Her mind kept racing as she looked around feeling confused not knowing where she was, who brought her here, and why.
She remembered the mysterious man that saved her from killing herself and killed her ruthless slave masters. The last thing she remembered was the man putting her to sleep and he carried her into his ship.
“Is this home his?” Helen thought. “Where is he? Why did he save me?”
Then her bedroom door opened and she lay back down to pretend to sleep. As she carefully lifted her head up and saw a hovering metal box with a blue glowing screen and arms at its side. Her eyes wiped and her body froze as she never had seen an
