Shattered Hearts: Part X

Everything was black. He stood there, barely able to see even at arm's length. Not a single sound permeated the deafening silence; he wanted to speak, but somehow, he didn't want to interrupt that haunting solitude...he stayed rooted to the spot, half-waiting for something to happen, to jerk him out of this dark void...
"Take the sword, Alex."
The voice came out of the blue, breaking the reticence and echoing throughout the queer dark place. It was a very familiar voice, one he had always known for as long as he could remember...
"Hold it...like this..."
He blinked, and before him appeared a broadsword with a gilded, jeweled hilt. It was bright, glowing, and for a few moments Alex blinked the spots of light out of his eyes, rubbing them and letting them adjust till he could focus normally on the sword that had just appeared out of nowhere. Like the voice, the weapo
For Cara: That GirlShe saw them last night on the bay.
They had been walking together, fingers entwined, laughing, smiling, pointing up at the round ivory moon and its entourage of tiny twinkling stars. They were talking, but she had been too far off to hear them clearly, or for them to see her.
The blond, yellow Usul, clad in an off-white shirt, red vest and long, light brown breeches had been plodding along the beach in brown boots, hands in pockets. He had adjusted the red band he wore around his head as a cool sea breeze blew past and toyed with his long hair. But of course, he wasn't alone.
She had watched the yellow Cybunny more closely - she was also a blonde, but her hair was of a much darker shade. Her black tunic rivaled the black of the night sky, and was bordered with gold and silver threads that faintly glimmered from a distance. Underneath it she wore a long-sleeved, lacy white blouse. Her hair was a lot freer than her companion's, but she didn't mind the wind's attention at all. Instead, s

Hope you like your gift. Merry Christmas.
It had taken him an entire hour combing through all the decent jewelry stalls at the nearest marketplace beside Meri Acres Farm, and despite the mingling smells of strange perfumes, unripe, ripe or overripe fruit and vegetables, different aromas of food, and unmentionables, he had found the perfect gift for his friend, a beautiful Aisha dancer from The Dazzling, a traveling troupe of gypsies.
It was a gem amongst stones, a flower amongst dried grass...
And it was so hard to find something pretty for someone as pretty as Kakirusha Monroe.
After writing on the square, pale pink card, he glanced again at the message he wrote. It was concise - a little too concise, the white Eyrie admitted to himself with a sigh. But fancy, flowery language just wasn'
For Gav: You ThinkYeah, of course you do. You think, therefore you are. Haha. XD
Merry Christmas, and may Greenpeace recruit you for its marine mammal-saving force.
You think I hate your guts
And I love bossing you around
You think I'd like to see
Your face smashed into the ground
You think that in my spare time
I think of many ways to prank you
Well, I think you've gone crazy...
On second thought, sometimes I do.
You think I simply take pleasure
In seeing you suffer and whine
Or whenever you get in trouble
For putting a toe out of line.
But you want to know what I think?
I think that there's much more to that.
Maybe you'll just stare at me after this
And ask over and over, "What?"
Because I've been really blessed
With a great friend like you
This time, I'm not putting you on
I swear by my heart it's true.
When I feel really down and lost
Wading through my broken dreams
You shine the light onto my path
Making anything dark gleam.
Sometimes I just want to rant
And tear the world to shreds

Thaline sat up, gasping for air. She looked down and saw that she was in an infirmary tunic instead of her gown, which she found out was hung neatly on a nearby chair. She was neatly tucked into a bed at the infirmary, which was three-quarters full instead of lying on the floor after a faint.
The page had a horrible dream, where she met her father's old flame, found out that she was Chardis's adoptive mother, and could only watch as Chardis disappeared into the darkness, which ended up consuming Thaline. Unfortunately, it was quite close to what she had experienced last night.
Squinting out the window just beside her bed, she could see that it was morning - probably late morning, from the way it looked. She nearly jumped when a shadow was cast over her and blocked the sunlight.
"Ah, good, you're awake."
A red Techo with a lopsided golden winged circlet was beside her bed, and he looked as though he'd seen much bett

BladedBlueGen: I was supposed to be in my pyjamas, ready to blow out that stupid little candle and finally go to bed after everyone's favorite captain and my favorite little right-hand man gave me a good walloping in our last mock duel. In fact, I can still feel that sore spot on my back where he dumped me on the floor and made all the ladies-in-waiting sigh and swoon at how freaking macho and strong and awesome he is. Apparently my back's not the only sore spot now...even my ego's smartin' like heck.
But noooooo, you just HAD to invite me. And you know I can't turn down invites from my dearest lil' sis.

"He was mugged. By three heavily armed men. Around five minutes after eight in the evening."
"They took his cell phone, his wallet, and his schoolbag. They would've taken his life too if it weren't for the security guards hearing the brawl. He got everything back, too, and they're finally behind bars."
"What's his name again?"
"Oh, he goes to that state university down the road...Sandstone College...
"Adrian Northwood. Third year. B.S. Psychology course, isn't it? Bachelor of Science?"
"He was badly wounded...he broke his left arm, sprained his left ankle, and he was covered in bruises and cuts, including one particularly nasty stab wound in the right arm. Would've been killed instantly if it weren't for those security guards alerting the police on duty nearby."
"Who was with him?"
"Wait, it's Lily! She got my text message! Lily! Adrian - "

"Will he be all right?"

The Terraflare residence was unusually quiet that evening, probably because Rohane and Talinia had gone to the castle for the annual Discovery of Meridell party, and of course, Thaline was already in the castle for her knight training, and she was already allowed to participate. Now it was only eleven-year-old Alexandrion and nine-year-old Suzana who remained, lounging about in the living room under the watchful eye of their aunt, Arlene Darkfire.
"I'm booooooored," whined Suze, who was perched on the couch. Every now and then there was a flash of green light as the green Blumaroo transformed into whatever came into her mind. Alex nearly screamed in fright as he saw Jeran sitting beside him in a blue robe with turquoise-bordered sleeves and hem over a green dress and slippers in a violent shade of magenta, with pink diamonds dangling from his ears and a silver hoop on his tail.

SempiternalShe says that
love is like a rose bush,
once you're caught
in its embrace
there is no escaping
for if you try to escape,
the thorns will catch you and
only hurt you more.
She says she will never try to escape from their rose bush.
He makes his vows with another.
The cake is set, the moon is lit,
They found her in a rose bush,
blood flowing out like a river.
Drowned in his love, forevermore.
speechlessI swear, I don't think I've ever
met a person quite like you before.
You stir up an inconceivable amount of feelings
inside of me, and it seems that I can never
find the right words to say whenever I'm around you.
A MemoryI remember eating marshmallows
roasted by candle
Dancing in the light
of your cell phone with our voices
making a tune at midnight
Days spent jumping, laughing,
Our feelings seemed connect
As did our hands intertwined
when we'd crossed a mess.
When we'd made our palms bleed
From swinging off trees,
Or when we dug a hole
To hide from the world
We spent snowy days in our shorts and bare feet
Just to see who could stand the heat of the burning freeze
And when I got too cold
you'd pick me up and run us home,
Rainy days were spent laying in puddles listening to the drops, getting soaked
And the sunniest were spent in swimsuits spraying each other with a hose
But every story has an end
So I lost my best friend...
What felt like death
When you left
Because every leaf kicked up in the fall...fell
and every raindrop to be caught...missed
every snowflake to be felt... melt
every flame to jump over in the summer sky...burned out
All these memories fall on my head;
Talking on your
For you If the stars don't shine tonight
Will you still love me?
If our hearts stopped beating
Would you forgive me?
If the earth stopped spinning
Would you still hate me
Yes I know darling you still hate me, your hate for me burns like a raging inferno.
I understand no matter what I will always love you.
The truth is you could take everything I love, strip me down from everything, break me, even slit my throat and I would still love you.
You raised me from the hell I was drowning in, the black abyss I was trapped in for so long.
To this day I don't know why you would do that just to leave me!
I did everything you asked.
I stood up for you.
I fought for you
I would have even taken a bullet for you...
but still your pierced that knife through my back grinning the entire way
I would have done anything for you
Even if you died I would have died with you
Even if that meant taking my own life and losing my wings
Your StarlightYour Starlight:
Climbing up the steep slope
Completely enveloped in summer
Night's warm embrace
My goal silhouetted against the moon
The Withered old tree stood
Covered in the scars of forgotten promises
Placing a hand on the old bark
I remove a pocketknife into my hand
Staring at the blank spot
I recall memories from my life,
My first steps, my first Dance
My first Love, My first broken heart.
The tears come before I can stop them
Even now the scars still hurt
Clenching my fist I closes my eyes
Trying to contain the pain
Suddenly I feel a pair of arms
Wrap around my shoulders
Opening an eye I saw
Arms made of starlight
Turning 'round I saw him
My star, the only one who cared
I hadn't spoken to him since I was young
But that didn't matter to him
He smiled and hugged me again,
"Do not worry." He whispered into my ear
"Though you've grown, I'll still be here."
He held onto my shoulder and smiled at me
I said with more tears than ever
"How can you still care? I almost forgot you were ther
Ti AmoTi Amo, those are words that I
mutter under my breath. It's crazy
how much I love you; I thought about
you with each tick the clock's hand
With each stride I took everything
inn my life began to fall into
place,except for you; a stubborn piece
that you were not wanting to fit.
I didn't want to let you go because
you were the one person that I wanted
in my life.
Months go passing by right before my
eyes, I realize that I didn't want
you in my life anymore; the stress
for me to be this perfect person was
something I didn't want to deal with.
Ti Amo, how those two engrossing words
could mean I love you in a language
with such an elegance that could rip your
heart from the disappearance of that
sweetness not being said to you ever again
from that one person that meant everything.
I'll Know It's You When...Daddy told me that I’ll know
I found you when your fingers
can conduct an orchestra
in my heart and your lips will
taste like ocean water and autumn leaves,
he said I won’t bite my tongue anymore
and the ashes under my skin will be
replaced with things like New York snow
and even glitter. He said when I can
taste my laugh as it ripples out my throat,
when my socks are filled with love letters
and little scented candles, that’s when
I’ll know I found you. He said to picture
a circular object in the sky and if I look at it
and it becomes the sun instead of the moon
then, yeah, I’ve found you.
PetalsI pull off a petal
"He loves me."
His smile is the galaxy I live and breathe in.
I pull off a petal.
And when he can't make time for me, that's okay.
He makes up for it in his kisses.
I pull off a petal.
The other girls don't matter
Because he comes home to me.
It hurts a little but I deal with it
Because he is the sun and the stars.
I pull off a petal.
He may ignore me sometimes
But deep down I know he cares.
I pull off a petal.
I'm hurting, but I need him.
He's the only one in my head.
He's the air in my lungs.
I pull off a petal.
"He loves me not."
You Don't KnowYou Don't Know
You don't know why this girl smiles
When she catches your eye
You don't know why her heart beats
When you return the grin
You don't know why she trembles
When you draw close to her
You don't know why she giggles
Or knots her hands together
Like some nervous waif
When you're around
You don't know why that girl stutters
When she speaks to you
You don't know why she suddenly lights up
When she sees you around
You don't know why her heart leaps faster
When you stop for some conversation
You don't know why she is smiling
And always happy to find you, even
When you simply stand there
Like some superstar in her dreams
You don't know why.
You don't know.
I'm in love with you.
