Poor Thing

Black clouds rolled across the white washed skies.‭ ‬The wind picked up and the trees began to wave to the small band departing from their tiny forest home.‭ ‬The tree's blood red leaves followed them as they trekked forward,‭ ‬the wind whipping at their backs.‭ ‬There were two cloaked figures in front,‭ ‬and two in following.‭ ‬Together they carried a platform between them.‭ ‬The silky cloth flapped in the screaming breeze but miraculously did not fly away.‭ ‬Beneath this sheet lay what appeared to be a body,‭ ‬a human body.

Gem lay at rest,‭ ‬her icy pale hands folded over her stomach,‭ ‬her eyes closed.‭ ‬She rested in an eternal sleep.‭ ‬Or at least her body did.‭ ‬In fact the soul of the child hovered above her vessel.‭ ‬The spirit was still connected to the body,‭ ‬long ago cold.‭ ‬She could feel every bump that her carriers went over,‭ ‬every step that carried them farther and farther from her home.‭ ‬The old Tosoki's residence now lay silently hidden by the still bushes,‭ ‬and tall painted trees.

The ghost no longer knew what she would do.‭ ‬Her body was six feet under the cold ground.‭ ‬Her soul was left to wonder,‭ ‬but how far would that take her.‭ ‬She aimlessly floated for days seeking the truth behind her fate.‭ ‬All she found was a cat,‭ ‬a genie.‭ ‬Gem befriended the strange creature.‭ ‬She was drawn to it's power,‭ ‬it's sheer beauty that entranced her.‭ ‬But more than anything the fact that the genie acknowledged the lonely girl.‭

The genie offered her a gift,‭ ‬a chance for life,‭ ‬but of course it had it's restrictions.‭ ‬The ghost child agreed with the knowledge that she would be imprisoned,‭ ‬unable to travel the world as she had hoped,‭ ‬or to find love that her cold spirit longed for.‭ ‬She was bound to the remains of the old Tosoki's residence,‭ ‬aloud to walk though the lonely halls,‭ ‬to smell the flowers that slipped right though her hand.‭ ‬She could walk again,‭ ‬and appear almost solidly.‭ ‬She could feel the sun on her pale cheek.‭ ‬But the cat had made another promise.‭ ‬In this deal he would also stay with her,‭ ‬to keep her company.‭ ‬To always remind her on the irreversible choice she had made as he lives though all eternity.

Okay, so I went to a mall when I was on my vacation in Eugene, Oregon. We all, my mom, brother, and sister, went to the mall and had dinner. I ate a wonderful Arbey's melt sandwich (they added Arbey's sauce too T_T). So after dinner in the food court I went shopping and looking around the area. They had a good amount of stores, but I took interest in one specifically. I went into a Hot Topic. When I was in that store I was browsing, my eyes scanning over the walls of T-shirts. I made my way over to the little key chains. Looking at these key chains, quite cute with their little sayings, I was enjoying myself.

So this guy, a geeky looking kid with glasses, thin hair, maybe early twenties or a high schooler walks up to me. He had those ear hole things in his ears, they were in the shape of triangles with rounded edges (they grosses me out). But anyway, he walks up to me and casually says, "Hey! How are you doing this evening?"

I was use to this question, they usually ask how you are doing before asking if you want any help finding something. "Yes, I am thank you. How are you doing?" I replied.

He said, "Well I'm doing alright. I'll be a whole lot better when I get off at 9 though. What are you doing tonight?"

Well I was left in a sort of shock, it's been a few years since someone's even asked. It took me a second to answer but I told him, "Well I'm on vacation with my parents." But after that he started asking more casual questions about where I was from and certain things like that. Then he told me to look him up on this Hot Topic myspace sight thing. So ya. That is my story! It kind of alarmed me, but it's all good! It was kind of sweet now that I look back at it.

Oh so early

*rubs her eyes tiredly* Wow, I stay up till 11 just to talk to someone I have come to value in my life greatly. Then I chose to wake up at 6 to get some internet things done. *rubs eyes again* I know there are others out there with worse sleeping hours than myself but this is my journal! Let me rant and complain!

Rain fell from the sky drowning out the sounds of the nearby fight going on in the stone courtyard. Down the street from the fight, hunched by the weight of the rain falling on her sodden shoulders, walked the White Raven. She was dressed in her usual long cape made of the purest white fabric and embroidered with the raven family crest in a rich golden thread. A long hood cascaded down her back from its perch atop her head where it fell nearly obscuring her eyes. The woman walked with her head bowed, and her pale hands folded before her. Her slate gray eyes gazed, almost unseeing, at the ground beneath her. She looked up, one solitary, small, figure standing before a mass of men and women fighting to the death. All for power and for honor. "Stop!" She commanded in a strong voice that one would not suspect to come from a body so frail. The fight before her ceased as the black figures stopped their attack. The heir had spoken. "Come." She demanded in the same tone. The rain drizzled off every surrounding building and splattered to the stone ground loudly. Those dressed in black hurried, with a flurry of black robes, to surround the last Heir. Arms crossed over their hearts they all bowed as a single body before her. "No more fighting." She said sternly before turning to walk away. The mass of black nodded and moved as one. They all stood and the Ravens all followed their white leader with no more than a word of protest. There would be no more fighting today thanks to the word of The White Raven. The Ravens disappeared into the darkness and fog on the stormy evening, led by their star, before their swift enemy could attack.

This is something for a story, or role-play that I came up with one cool, rainy July day. I had family staying over and we got into some petty argument. I left because I didn't want them to see my tears. I walked around the loop that is our driveway. Walking though here I noticed how dark everything was. I also noticed how white my sweater was against all of it. Up in a tree somewhere to the right of me I heard the rough caw of a raven screaming at me. I felt one drop, then two drops of rain fall from the sky and splatter against my skin.

So do you want to hear more of the story?
