Robert De Niro bought a quilt of a fox at the very big zoo, wow he just knows how he can play the game to win.
Branches slapped my face as I stumbled through the moonlit forest. I looked back in a panic to find that he was gaining on me. Kuro. The god of death and shadows. I hadn't had a true moment of rest in days. Kuro's shadow soldiers were always lurking. Waiting for me to make the wrong move. As I ran forward into the ever darkening night my foot caught on an exposed root. I was going to die.
Before I could even stand up he was leering over me. He seemed to almost fade into the night. A true god of death.
"Little thief," Kuro called, his voice sharp and cold like he hadn't been running at all. "Return what you have stolen now and I will leave you unharmed, but if you do not. I will have no choice, but to bring you with me to Nahana."
"I have not stolen anything from you, oh great and mighty Kuro. Do you think me a fool? Steal from a god? You speak of suicide." I replied my voice scratchy and tired, but still strong.
"But you did. I can feel it. Like blood calling to blood. Your shadow speaks. It tell the story of your deceit. Tell me where it is! What has Rin given you? What is you have that'll will save me?!" Kuro no longer sounded like a murderous god, but like a child crying for a toy. He looked so young, maybe he was, not much older then me or maybe it was the gods clever glamours meant to keep me from seeing his true form. Perhaps for a god he was young.
"I promise you, Rin has given me no such thing at least not to my knowledge. I'm sorry."
I became a survival expert because of my fears. Spiders. With there fury legs and billion eyes. I am a master of all things survival, but I've never came across a challenge quite like this. The spiders comes closer hissing at me as it does. It's huge. Biggest spider in all of NYC I bet, but I'm a survivor. I should be able to kill it.
"Just kill it all ready." Kari, my sister calls. She's five and is the most fearless child I've ever met. Once she picked up a spider like it was a bunny. Gave it a name and everything. I swear she's the devils spawn, the way that spider didn't instantly kill her. She thinks I need to get over my fear so sometimes she sets spiders on me to see if I can kill it or not. I know that's strange but like I said she's the devils spawn.
"I'm trying!" I yell back. I almost forgot about the spider, damn Kari. It's closer know. I've seen scorpions less scary then this bastard.
"You are such a wimp! I thought you were a survival expert, you know, like bear grills or whatever his name is." I hate Bear Grills. Cocky bastard with his stupid tv show. I am way better then him.
"Shut up, Kari! You are ruining my focus!" I holler.
"You know what I'm done with this game. It's boring now." Kari steps out from behind me and grabs the spider squashing it between her fingers. Devils spawn. I swear.
Mahlik opened the gym door. He sat down on the floor and tied his shoes. He started to run on the court, but stopped when he felt a pull in his hamstring. Until he was sure it was gone, he kept stretching. Suddenly aware everyone else was shooting for teams at the foul line, into the group he jumped. He made his first shot--swishing it nothing but net and shouting gleefully--so he was able to play in the first game. Playing for all he was worth, jumping like a rabbit, Mahlik dunked the game winning basket and fell over crying.
"I can't see," Tom said blindly.
"That is mine," Tom had claimed.
"I can't breathe," Tom breathed.
"There are too many insects out here!" Tom bugged.
"I'm not underlining or italicizing my words," Tom said boldly.
"Will these birds ever shut up!" Tom chirped.
The grass is always greener when you water it.
If life gives you lemons, sell them and get free money.
People who live in glass houses have no privacy.
If it ain't broke, break it.
If you can't beat ‘em, kill ‘em.
If you want something done right, don't do it.
When the going gets tough, stop going.
