Wake me up when september endsWake me when September ends The sun's final light fades behind me as I lie on our couch and watch the curtains darken. The chill in the air reminds us that winter wasn't long ago. I think of you out working in the cold and dark but the empathy takes a moment to hit. Am I too cold? I think our summer's past and I don't know if I can make it through our next fifty years together.I remember my father standing strong beside my mum. How many years have passed since he left I wonder? More than I care to count or remember. How am I meant to emulate the one man I've learnt to despise? What will come of us if I stay? Can I risk the world, my world, to try and fail? No. I think it's better to wait, wait and wait. Wake me up when it's over.The rain begins, you'll be walking through it later, and the pattering on our roof relaxes me. I recall our early years. So many years. Living, breathing, loving. But time's passed, it's had to, and I don't know if we work the same. When the time come
Momiji's AffirmationsChapter 1I walk over from the doorway and sit down beside her bed where she is sleeping soundly. For a time I just look at her, her soft brown hair and peaceful expression sweetly complimented by the soft breeze entering from the hospital room's open window which gently plays with her hair."Ahh, I guess your sleeping, right Tohru? Well I guess that's a good thing, you need your sleep to get all better and go back to being your cheerful, kind self" I smiled softly, "things are to quite without you".It had been a week since Tohru had been admitted to the hospital, after falling from the edge of a cliff while in Akito's company. Momiji was one of her most frequent visitors, with the exceptions of Saki, Arisa and Yuki. Between themselves they managed to keep her company for most of the time she was hospitalized.I lie back in the cushioned chair, and let my mind wander while Tohru slept on. Kyo had been banned from visiting Tohru by her bodyguards Saki and Arisa. I did my best to
Two strong legsWARNING POST FULL METAL ALCHEMIST MANGA CHAPTER 102 SPOILER!!!!! You have now been warned.....**************As I sit in my hospital bed I hear the soft footsteps entering the room, the door closing with the latch catching with a quite metallic click. I didn't need to open my eyes to know who had come. Not that she hadn't been beside me almost every minuet regardless. Even when I'd told her not to."Open your eyes Colonel"I choose to look towards the window in the opposite direction instead. At least with my eyes closed I can pretend to have control over what I can't see.I hear her shoes scuffing the linoleum and then feel her weight beside me shift the hospital bed. I don't move away. But I don't look back at her either. And some people think I'm stubborn?"Roy"The edge to her voice surprised me. She hardly ever called me Roy

The first morning of the earthI stand with my 6 foot short-board jutting up out of the sand beside me and the cool shallows of the ocean shore lapping at my feet. Inviting me. Enticing me.I watch the sun peek over the crystalline horizon. Lighting the clouds and colouring the sky in vibrant hues of purple, red, pink and gold. Sending wild sapphire glints across the ocean's deep blues.I watch the sea's curves and pulls along the beach and close my eyes embrace it. Somewhere between it being an extension, a part, of my own being and something far greater and distinctly holy.I stretch my arms and feel my wetty stretch with me, I pick up my board, walk into the water and begin my morning tribute to life and the forever first morning of the Earth.
