Chains: Chapter 1War was tearing through the world again. The Cloud and Leaf were at it. 'Why me?' Hinata thought staring out the window.
The sun was just beginning to rise sending pink rays dancing across the sky to land on one unhappy Hyuuga's face. Tears streamed down her porcelain skin, from her lidded lavender eyes. Her blue-black hair hung down to her waist in silky waves absorbing the salty wet drops as they cascaded unchecked down her cheeks.
I'm going to be married.
It was true. An arranged marriage between a Cloud Ninja and herself was to take place in a few weeks.
'Naruto-kun...I-I LOVE you and now you'll never know '
This marriage was supposed to be for the good of Konoha. An arranged marriage might help the increasing tension between the two villages. Fighting had already broken out, but there was still hope for it to end soon.
Slowly Hinata rose from her seat and turned to her room to begin another day.
A dark figure waited outside a busy bar. Swathed all in
Shino's Revenge"You know, there's always one guy like that!" Yumi exclaimed next to Sakura as they left a paitient's room in the hospital, "He just gives me the creeps, ne?" Sakura nodded absently to the intern at her side and glanced back at the object of Yumi's idle chatter. The young man trailing behind the two women seemed to pay no mind to them, but how could they tell? He always wore those stupid glasses.
Yumi continued her empty-headed prattling, much to Sakura's annoyance. Why did Tsunade-sama have to saddle her with the newest interns? Yumi had already fainted once today and as for Haru, he just was creepy. The black-haired young man barely uttered a word, and you couldn't see his eyes behind the weird glasses he wore. Sakura got the creepy feeling that he was thinking pervy thoughts in his head. She didn't trust the quiet ones.
"Here we are, room number 27." she said. She grabbed the chart by the door and rifled through it quickly, "A few broken ribs, twisted leg tendon, and bad burns. You
An Integral MomentIntegra entered the Hellsing manor in a very bad mood. She waved everyone off and went straight to her bedroom where she promptly slammed the door and flopped in to her favorite armchair. She glared at the flames dancing and crackling so merrily in the grate before her. God, how she wished those flames would consume those gobshites at the Vatican! She pulled angrily at her tie to loosen it and tore it violently off her neck and threw it to the floor. Damn!
She got up and went to the cabinet standing innocently in the shadows behind her bed. She didn't indulge in liquor often, but now...She smiled as she pulled a bottle from the shelf, now was the time to relax. She needed it. She pulled out a glass and poured the amber liquid in to the delicate crystal. She settled back in her chair and swirled the glass about thoughtfully before downing the whole thing in one swallow. She grimaced as it burned its way down her throat and in to her stomach. She grabbed the bottle from the table next to
Hatake Kakashi: UnmaskedThere are a few things most girls will kill over when they are interrupted doing said things. For Sakura Haruno one of those said things was sleep. And she was not happy with the loud knocking coming from her door. Whoever was there was sooo dead.
The unhappy kunoichi rolled out of bed and stalked to the door, ignoring her blond roommate's muffled question of, "WasssgooinonSakuuura?" and slammed her door open, scaring the living daylights out of the poor Genin on the other side. A wide eyed innocent little slip of a thing with purple hair and brown eyes who looked as if this job wasn't nearly going to be worth what she was paid for it.
"S-Sakura Haruno? I-It's an urgent m-message f-from-" she stuttered, holding out a message scroll, which was shaking slightly. Her happy-go-lucky expression from a moment before having been replace with a wide eyed terror stricken one. The sight that was a pissed off Sakura with too little sleep was not unlike what one might see in their nightmares. Said
AndromedaAmongst the darkened skies
Brightened by only starlight
Field & Sea.
Gravity is only an afterthought
Hilltops become ladders into the sky while
Inferior planets stare down upon the Earth
Jealous of such simplicity yet contemplating grandeur.
Keppler only thought of science
Linear, elliptical, movement…
Mythology had no such thoughts
Neptune & Nebulas both inhabit space
Orbiting across the lonely darkness
Probably never worried about mundane things
Questioning their existence
Right now or for all eternity such as us.
Shooting stars make us joyful while
Terminator is an otherworldly spectacle
Unknown to all those hidden in their houses
Various stars await us outside
Waiting to play like we did before
Xenagogue & inviting
Youthful but ancient curiosities.
Zenith induced euphoria continues until daylight…
dead dog julyI.
the summer heat lays limp in the city’s lap,
breathing long oppressive breaths.
it does not even lift its lolling head
to bark out hoarse indignancy
when a strange man brings the mail.
there might be heavy rain today,
brought by some swollen, murmuring cloud.
the world will whirl and howl,
then settle down,
to die a little more.
o, quickly, love,
press your back against the wall in fear
as the universe spreads her arms and
shuts her eyes
and starts to summon the end of all things.
come with me
to the place of windows full of speechless afternoon
hot windy whispers of half-formed solutions and resolutions,
sweltering sunlit meadows we’ll wander and then forget.
o quickly, love,
let’s to the season of forgetting
and unwind all of our harshest memories
and fill the universe’s mouth
with mute cotton.
i’ll whisper these words to you some evening
with all my exigency in the hand i rest on your arm—
