Love and Loss'You can't protect two things at the same time. You have to make a choice, or you'll lose them both'
Oh how I despise words like that. I hate them, yet I know their meaning better than one on this planet or the next. It wasn't always like this though. It used to be different. I used to be ignorant, I used to not understand the true meaning of pain, loss... loneliness.
I was walking down the main street of a new village. I was a visitor and I was looking around trying to find where the leaders were based. I was extremely young for the ranking that I held. I was a master, at the age of 17. It was unheard of, so I rarely told anyone and lied about my true rank. I had a hidden power that only my master and old team mates knew off. The power to predict someone's attacks didn't matter if I couldn't see them. I knew, and it had never failed me. Not once.
I looked around to realise that somewhere along the way I had taken a wrong turn and now I was completely lost. I looked aroun
rose, thorns, dirtLife can give you roses, it can give you thorns or it can give you the earth that you need to grow in.
I think I would prefer the dirt. I mean you can't really abuse it and it can't abuse you. I mean its dirt!
But then there is also the mess that can come with dirt, but that mess is only created when you stuff up, mess around in something you should be messing with. I guess that's why I would want to be the dirt; you can only blame yourself and no one else.
But then with the rose, you can get whatever you want, live the life that you always dreamed for. But then what if what you really wanted was the dirt? You wouldn't want to give up the rose because all of the other roses would question your sanity! Although there is the other option of when you're alone, you be the dirt. So you have control, you don't have to be someone you don't want to be, someone you have to be. Wouldn't that be better?
But what about the thorns? But what could you call the thorns? Where would they start? Where w
VampireI am an ancient that is all I remember about myself. I don't know how old I am, I don't know how long I have been what I am. All I know is that I am extremely old. I can walk in the early hours of the morning but it is painful, it burns my eyes and leaves blisters on my skin. I have powers that I have to control and I have to sleep during the day. But when the moon is high, I am alive. I have to drink blood to survive. So I guess reading a few novels that I found lying around. I am a vampire. An old and powerful vampire.
Who are you?
Said the timid voice from behind me, I turned to see a little girl. I could see all of the veins running through her small little body and hear her heart beat pound like a drum. It was an intriguing sound, but I didn't let it show on my face.
I am Elizabeth dear child, who are you?
I replied in a kind voice so that I wouldn't scare the child. I didn't like scaring people that I knew. I had always avoided them, but tonight this little girl
English task My Assassin GuardMY ASSASSIN GUARDIAN
My day went from okay to horrible when the new kid stated that he was an assassin and was here to be normal. It got worse when he started following me, every class he was there. I just couldn't escape him, and then it got worse when all of the girls started glaring daggers at me. Now it's the end of the day. Finally I thought, I can escape this place and get home, I smiled as I opened my locker.
'Hello there, so this is where your locker lies' said the voice that followed me all day.
'Yes this is my locker what of it?' I asked rudely turning around to face Chris, who was standing way to close.
'Nothing, nothing at all, I just came to tell you the main reason I'm here. I thought now would be the time.' He glanced over his shoulder before he turned back to me, 'Someone is after your life. I have been hired to protect you at all costs.'
My jaw dropped, I had never angered anyone that much had I? Maybe I had a dark history I didn't know about. Either way, my life
My own Angel
Walking down the hall. I saw nothing. It was dark. No light could be seen, unless you lifted your head slightly to see the uncovered light bulbs that followed you down the hall. I looked up at them glumly as I moved down them to my destiny. I had hidden myself away in my mind for so long I had forgotten what the outside world looked like. But there was one thing I was looking forward to. A face, one single face was going to make everything fine and clear again. It was my guardian angel.... the one that had saved me, the one that was now pulling me back to where everything changed. Where normal life continued on. Where I wasn't locked to my past trying to figure out all of the different stories that were placed before me. Then a thought crossed my mind
What if he's not waiting? What if he has moved on? Found someone else to protect, to adore, to love?
I stopped and looked behind me. My protective door was still visible. It wouldn't take me too long to walk to distance back into my safe
Four Pairs... One Problem 11--- Zoe's POV---
Kelly had gone into the bathroom and I was now sitting on Atem's lap. I felt him put his arms around me to make sure I didn't fall among other things ^////^
'So I wonder what we're going to do today.' I wondered as I sat happily on Atem's lap
'Well you would most likely start your training' Yugi answered
'But what about you guys?' I asked as I heard the shower being turned on
'Well we don't have any powers' Atem answered this time
I looked at him confused
'But I can sense power coming off all of you even Kelly' I said confused 'Sure I don't really know how to use my powers but I can still tell' I added as I got confused looks in return
'But how is that possible?' Yugi asked as he started to think
We were quiet while we all thought. But soon an answer came to me
'Well it must be because you have spent so much time around it.' I said happily
'But that doesn't explain Kelly' Atem pointed out
I just blinked as I whispered
'My bad I forgot about Kelly'
Four Pairs... One Problem 10--- Zoe's POV---
I woke up to see that I was still in my dress and also in Atem's warm embrace. I looked up to see the sleeping Pharaoh also still in his costume from the night before. I heard movement and assumed it was Yugi. I tried to sit up and get out of Atem's grip but it seemed like he had a death grip on me and wasn't letting me go, so I went with a different approach. Sure I didn't really want to wake Atem up, but I kinda had to pee and I really didn't think that it would be a good idea to pee in the bed so yeah
'Atem Atem you have to let Zoe go' I said lightly shaking Atem
He only rolled over with me in his grip, which meant that when he stopped I was laying on top of him with my head placed on his chest. Better yet Atem now had a better grip on me, which made it impossible for me to move, so I gave up and closed my eyes again. I had only one thought pass through me
"Can't beat them. Join them"
--- Atem's POV---
I woke up to feel something warm on my chest and in my arm
