Crimson On WhiteCrimson on whiteAnd I am the causeMoonlight reflects off the steel in his handA stillness of timeI hear his breath pauseA whisper slips past his pale lips like dry sandMy lips touch hisWe share a last kissHis blood stains my hands as I cradle his headTears stain my faceHis eyes look to mineA thousand words shared but they never were said.
School Dance _Part 1_I leaned my body against the wall in the school auditorium, waiting for my friends to show their faces and talk to me so that I wouldn't look like a loner as much as I felt like one. I had never really been a big fan of school dances.Multicolored lights danced around the walls and floor, just missing my hiding spot by a few feet with each revolution, so I was hidden from view by an even darker shadow in the already-dark room. I was actually enjoying watching other girls and boys dance, because I had always felt that if I ever tried to dance, it looked awful. Even though the dancing that everybody else was doing wasn't really dancing at all,
Fear _Part 2_He stumbled back into another dancing couple, looking like he had just witnessed an axe murder. I didn't think that that was his reaction from the kiss."Oh man! What is that? Your face!" What about my face? I brought my hands to my face and felt my nose growing outward at high speed. In fact, my whole skull was rapidly changing shape. "Oh no." I became really confused and embarrassed and scared all at once. Though I was shifting, I wasn't experiencing pain. And I hadn't even meant to change my form. Plus, Blank would have definitely had something to say about it if I had suddenly willed myself to change my shap
Nightmare _Part 3_I was dancing with Jake, and he leaned forward - eyes closed - to kiss me. But when his lips were an inch from mine, he opened his eyes, revealing two bright yellow eyes. His face instantly became a wolf's face, teeth bared in an evil grin. But I laughed and acted like nothing unusual was happening. I blinked, and suddenly I was standing under a weak light fixed just above my head at one end of a dark corridor. I felt a strong hand close around my wrist. It didn't pull, it just remained around my wrist. The hand was sort of comforting - even friendly in a way. I wanted to step forward. I thought that I would be safe in the darkness as long
Explanation _Part 4_About what? "You know exactly what I'm talking about!"If you're talking about before, I had nothing to do with that. "Blank, I trust you! Or at least I trusted you! What did you do?"Nothing. Blank insisted irritably.I was about to get really angry, but thought better of it. If Blank had been lying to me, I would have felt his guilt. All I felt was his anger at my accusation.I sighed and rolled over on my back to stare at the ceiling. "I'm sorry, Blank. I was just so scared back there. If you said that you had nothing to do with it, then you had nothing to do with it. I'm sorry for getting angry. I
Split Insight - Pkmn _Part 4After the drama had ended, my grandma and I sat and waited for about another hour before a middle-aged man with salt-and-pepper hair stepped out of the operating room and cleared his throat to gain our attention. My grandma looked up at him hopefully. I looked at him cynically. "Well, I have good news for you; Though his fur is a little shorter than before, we were able to get all of the tape off of your Eevee without hurting him." He went back into the room, and in a few moments he reappeared in the doorway with Eon in his arms. The Eevee looked exhausted, but relieved to be free of his sticky predicament. The doc approached me
Split Insight - Pkmn _Part 3"Riley?"I snapped out of my flashback to find Raj's head on my lap. I grimaced and pushed him off. He meowed in surprise and looked at me. "Beat it!"Raj grouchily moved back to his kitty bed."Could you get that for me?" My grandma pointed toward the kitchen door with her stirring spoon. I guess that I had been so out of it that I hadn't heard the pounding on the front door. I opened it and was immediately glad that my grandma hadn't been the one to answer the door. There on the doorstep, covered from neck to tail in strips of duct tape, was Eon. Patches of his long, reddish-brown fur poked up between the strips that didn't cover a
Split Insight - Pkmn _Part 2."Riley? Is that you?" My grandma, Rosaline, peeked around the kitchen door and smiled warmly at me. "Have fun out on the town today?" I wanted to roll my eyes so badly, but instead I replied, "Same old, same old." Grandma looked a little disappointed. A Persian sidled up next to her, pushing her hand with his nose until she got the hint and began rubbing him behind the ears. His eyes closed halfway in satisfaction as a purr rumbled softly in his throat. I scowled at it and backed up half a step. Grandma laughed as she shooed the Persian away and turned back into the kitchen. I followed her to see if there was anything that she had coo
