Ghost Dance HallThe music blared loudly as Ivy crossed the dance hall looking for her friend, Lazuli. It was getting late, and even though neither of them had school the next day, the fifteen-year-old girls were not allowed out for very long without an adult. Ivy sighed and sat down in the closest chair that was placed along the walls. She looked around for a second, examining closely each character there, to see if she could spot her friend, even though she knew that it would be pointless. The room reminded her of the frog eggs she found in her pond one day, the eggs held life within them and showed it by each one
What is This?What is this?The noises I hear all around me.Where are they coming from?Who is making them?What is this?I feel the warmth of hands supporting me.Who's are they?Why are they there?What is this?The darkness of my closed eyes.Too blind to open them.Too ashamed of what they will behold.I'll open them.Just for a moment.To see who is making the noises,And the hands on me.What is this?There's no one here.No hands.Silence.This world isn't for me.I thought it would be better.There's a loneliness that I'm not ready for,Yet I'm already used to it.I'll close my eyes again,To hear the voices of the people
The MaggotA wriggling little bodyDestined to the rotting flesh of the dead.Alone among a thousand others.Trapped by monotony,Like a lively mortal is to life,All maggots chew the flesh growing fat,Heavy, gravity too great to lift them.The smallest one gets nothingDrowning in a sea of its own kind,Unable to free itself.The dawn arrives slowly three timesAs the maggots chew the flash restlessly.The warm spring air calls the smallest one,Like a command that cannot be ignored,To the blue sky it wants to free itself in.The wriggling little body stiffensWhile the thousand others still squirm.Death, it seems, is the bestWhen
Game and DanceHot breath hits my lipsHis eyes stare deeply into mineLove is no strangerBut the feeling is brand newAs he holds my handSo I don't lose stepIn this dance of loveI was lostLosing a game I was playing aloneThat could not be played that wayNeeded more pawnsToo afraid to get the playersToo afraid to make others play my gameAnd I backed away until he joinedHe keeps me close nowWhispers words of the daredDoes not keep anything backWe play this game togetherDance in love togetherAnd he holds my handUntil our dance is over and our game is won

Beyond the Stars chptr1The year? 30XX. The time? Sometime around the middle of spring. Am I still wandering through time and space? Not exactly. More like Im wandering around on a planet more than a million light years away from my birthplace. Am I still running from my planets guardians? Oh yeah.I came from a galaxy in which the youngest born female is not allowed to live. Fortunately, for my twin that is, she was born first. And my parents had two sons after me within the next two years. How did that happen, youre asking?
Again I Lied Bell rings. An unwelcome gesture telling us to stop what the fuck we're doing and move on to our next class. School can really suck, and it can hurt if it feels like it's going on forever and ever. Gathering a pile of books (two binders, three separate books, a journal, a sketch book, and a notebook), I stood up from my desk to walk down the hallway away from my last class. Standing at my locker, struggling with the combination as students conversed and journeyed to their next class, a body leaned against the locker next to mine and grabbed the books from my arm.
Melted Ice CreamI sat on a new headstone, watching crows pick through the grass around the other tombstones. I wondered if they thought bugs and worms tasted good. Me? I'd rather sit here on my grave maker and lick the chocolate ice cream as I watched the sun set on, yet another, uneventful and lonely day. Not that any of my days are eventful since my "death". I remember that day. It all happened three years ago, and it's hard to forget.I was walking home one day; it was getting late and the streetlights had already come on. I wasn't allowed out after dark, and I knew something bad was going to happen, I could feel it. I just never listened to my h
Thinking of the StarsI stopped walking, sat on the cool night grass, and looked up to the sky over my head and thought about how far away they are. Up above our heads twinkling like they're celebrating a party on their own free will. Talking to friends, dancing with partners, and singing soundless songs.I looked to the west and saw a horse herd running in a motionless wave. I smiled and looked around. There was an alligator sunbathing in a sunless sky. Birds flew flightlessly through the stars above the tree tops.There were buildings; the tallest anyone has ever seen! People rushed motionlessly down busy streets of frozen in place cars. A city of every
The School Grounds pt1"Rena! I have to go now, come down to the couch!" I somewhat heard my mom call up the stairs. I had my head buried under a stuffed animal and my body under three covers."I'm coming!" I called when I sat up. My second floor room was freezing compared to how warm my bed was. I laid back down and looked outside. Though I had no idea what I was going to see considering it was pitch black outside and I'm blind without my glasses.I closed my eyes for a quick second, and I saw a horrible picture of the entire student and teacher body laying dead in the parking lot. There was a lou
The School Grounds pt2I felt sick. Sick right down to my stomach. No, much farther than that. The impending doom that was to engulf the school. No. It had to have been a dream. A horrible dream from the lack of sleep due to school starting. Though it didn't explain how I saw such vivid images or heard such clear sound. Was it to happen at all? If it was going to happen, when would it happen?I walked to my bus stop, not really paying attention to how fast I was walking. The sun was just coming up over the horizon casting a warm blue from the sky over the street I was walking up. Though the blue normally calmed my worried mind, it just made me wonder mo
The School Grounds pt3Kya must have seen Erika running down the hallway, because she stopped laughing, also."Whoa, Erika, what's wrong? You looked like..." Kya looked down to me. "Well, you look like Rena.""Morning, Fluffy-chan." I said to Erika as she stopped in front of Kya and me. She leaned on her knees, panting from running."Rena, can I talk to you?" Erika said grabbing my hand and running off, dragging me behind her, towards the closest restroom down the hallway."I'll wait here! ... I guess..." I heard Kya say as we left her behind by my locker.Erika's hands were damp with sweat, but they were also freezing cold. I didn't really pay attention,
The School Grounds pt4There was an awkward silence through the room. I heard Erika whimper softly, but only once. There was definitely some kind of aura going on through the room, but I couldn't name it. Bear was watching the sink as though it would spontaneously combust. Erika was staring at the floor trying as hard as I was to hold back tears. I was watching over the two of them, also forcing down the tears that were threatening to overwhelm me.I don't know what happened next, but something painfully shoved me to the floor with icy hands that sent waves of dread, pain, and anger through my body.You will lead!There was a whispery voice in my ears. I k
Panic in a Small Town pt22I coughed through my lunch, trying not laugh at the same time. I heard the band shift and move to try and see what was happening."Rena, what's wrong? Don't kill yourself." Erika said patting my back. I swallowed and laughed out loud."I don't get it. What's so funny?" Ryan asked leaning back and forth to try and see Erika and me since he was farthest away."Vampires!" I shouted louder than I wanted to. I set my salade to my right and leaned forward while wrapping my arms around my stomach."Rena, people are staring..." Erika whispered to me. Over my laughing, I heard the band start to laugh, too."What?!" Erika shrieked when the f
Panic in a Small Town pt1I leaned onto my left hand, bored, as I searched the web for random song lyrics. I had my earphones on and plugged into the computer listening to songs from my iTunes playlist. I clicked a very reliable lyrics site to a song by Panic! At the Disco, only to get a loud POP noise followed by someone saying (only it was more like shouting since my earphones turn any volume up very loud), "Would you like to help Panic! At the Disco? Click here to find out how!"Holding the earphones away from my head and dangling in my hand, I stared at them able to hear the entire announcement though they were several inches away. Though I did like the idea
Panic in a Small Town pt2"Wow, that was pathetic." I said when the rest of the page was just a bunch of pleas from the band; though I did look at the phone number they gave for anyone to call. I wrote down the number and grinned evilly at it.I had the power to help! And I also knew of a place for a small gig if they were willing. Would they like the idea? Would it help them get back out in the world? Would anyone come?But there was one question that I needed help answering, a question I needed help to go ask.Would the place I have in mind agree to the band coming?Realizing the issue, I calmly hit pause on my iTunes playlist, gently took my earphones out,
Panic in a Small Town pt3As Erika and I, nearly running back to my house, we talked about the when and who. How many, and what the cost was. I looked at the little notebook paper in my left hand."It says it can hold up to two hundred people with seating, but can hold about fifty more since their taking out the seats. Well, let's hope they do." I said slowing my pace so I wouldn't trip. Erika stopped a few feet in front of me and I nearly walked into her."That'll be good. It can be a purely fan thing. This way, only fans can come. But wait, when should we hold this?" Erika asked grabbing the paper. She stared at it hard."Well, since it is only Monday, I
Unexpected-- Chaud+Lan yaoiChaud Blaze sat in front of a computer typing up an essay he forgot for school. This was a first for him. Chaud always had his homework done early, and turned in on time. Why was he working on an essay at last minute? Not even Chaud could tell you, for he couldn't even remember what had happened the entire day.He remembered waking up, asking his NetNavi, ProtoMan, what time it was, and getting dressed, but after that was a complete blank. Not if he had breakfast, or lunch, even dinner, for that matter. He couldn't remember if he trained with ProtoMan, or if he went Battle Chip shopping. He couldn't remember anything that happened tha
Rivals?-- MegaMan+Bass yaoiBass sat atop of tall building watching a small, blue NetNavi talk with his friends. This blue Navi and his friends were having fun, laughing and talking, playing games and battling the occasional virus.Bass growled softly as he noticed an odd feeling grow in his chest. Since he had only felt anger in his past, he thought the feeling was just an anger towards his rival, but really, it was something completely different."Hey, MegaMan, Maylu has a piano lesson now, we have to go." A pink NetNavi, Roll, warned MegaMan, the blue Navi. The Navis and NetOps agreed and Jacked off the CyberWorld.MegaMan was the
What Would Happen...Mrs. Marrah: Hello class!class: Hello, Mrs. Marrah.Mrs. Marrah: Okay, class, today we will be writing in our journals. And since this is creative writing, just write down whatever comes to mind. You will have fifteen minutes. Begin now!Rena: *thinking to self* Write down anything that comes to mind? Okay, gotta think, gotta think. What should I write about? C'mon, Rena, use that overactive, totally whacked out fangirl brain you got!Rena: *puts on extremely hard-thinking looking face*Mrs. Marrah: Rena, are you okay? Do you need to visit the nurse?Rena: No,
Looking Only to FindMegaMan walked down the CyberRoad looking for his rival, Bass. Little did he know, that Bass was looking for him, too, only they had two different thoughts on their minds..."Man, where are you, Bass?" MegaMan muttered to himself as he looked around the Net. There was no sign of Bass. Or anyone, for that matter.Of course there wouldn't be any NetNavis in this part of the Net, it was the Undernet. Only the strong dared to train in the Undernet, and still, they feared for their lives and never got very far.At this point, MegaMan had gone farther into the Undernet than what has even been recorded.
Forte's Mystery Dungeon pt1"Where am I? Why can't I remember anything? Think. Gotta think. I remember I was in battle with someone. Someone who wore much blue. What was his name? Wait... Was it a boy? Was it a girl? I can't remember. Man, I'm too pathetic." I asked all these questions, but I think I was dreaming."Hey! Wake up, please? Oh, you are alive, right? Oh no?! What if you're dead!? Oh God, please wake up!!!" Someone beside me said. They started freaking out."Will you shut up?! I'm fine!" I shouted opening my eyes only to be face-to-face with a fish-like creature with orange spikes on its cheeks, a mouth that spread from one orange spike to
Forte's Mystery Dungeon pt2I landed on my feet, which surprised me. Normally landing on my feet hurt, this didn't, almost like I was teleported into the dungeon. I looked around too see that the dungeon was light very well. I saw moss growing on the walls. Little bugs crawled across the moss, and a bird was sleeping near the only exit out of the room Sora and I were in."Wow! So this is a dungeon?! It's so big!" Sora said loudly. It was more like she shouted. I jumped on her and held her mouth shut with my paws."Be quiet! You don't wonna wake that bird up!" I whispered. Sora laughed under my paw, then licked it. I jumped off of her and back away, my fur s
Forte's Mystery Dungeon pt3As Sora and I walked down the stairs to the next level, I noticed that the next level was just a medium-sized room with a small green caterpillar pacing around."Caterpie!" Sora called out running to the caterpillar."Huh? A Mudkip? Uhh, please, help me! I'm scared!" Caterpie said running -- I think it was running, more like crawling -- into Sora's arms."It's all okay now, Caterpie. Your mom sent us here for you. You're gonna be all right now." Sora said to comfort the now crying Caterpie.I stood back and watched Sora cuddle Caterpie. Sora was so mother-like. She even looked like a mother the way she hugged Caterpie the way she w
Forte's Mystery Dungeon pt4As I walked through the woods, I noticed other Pokemon, though they were either busy with whatever they were doing, taking care of their young, or watching me with no interest.I soon found myself in front of a large wooden house, which reminded me a lot of an acorn with leaves on the top of the house. There was a mailbox near the bush that surrounded the house. I liked the house, though it would've never been my first choice for a house. Maybe it was just being a Pokemon that made me like the house.I decided that I liked the house enough to walk up to it. A spider had made a web in the open doorway and watched me walk into the house.
GC: Wish Me Luck5/1/11 リン雨 "But that's suicide!" his voice shot through my ears, striking my heart harder and faster than lightning itself. I kept my eyes closed, the only thing that was keeping the tears inside of me. "But you know that I'll come back at some point," I told him. The words seemed false as they passed over my trembling lips. The air around us felt cold against my skin. The late August air that pierced through my jacket reflected the icy tenseness that hung thick in the atmosphere of the large tent. Two gentle hands slipped onto my shoulders, Noah's lips pressing to my forehead through my bangs. My eye
