Newborn~Tiny porcelain fingers
Keep perfectly shaped fingernails.
Of tiny ears.
All so perfect.
The tiny chisels of
Tiny lungs take in
Each breath of newborn air
As if it would be
As if you would go
Back to the world
Of liquid you left.
And your eyes
Shining like crystals
The purest cut gems.
They look to
The matching colour sky.
The world you came into
The life that
You will soon live.
Hell hath no fury...Hell hath no fury.
Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned.
There is nothing like it.
It drives her like a fire.
It cannot be contained.
You'd better hope.
You'd better hope you'd said your prayers.
You will regret it.
You'll regret what you did to her.
You will not be free until you do.
Follow your sensei~"Brodford, I am putting you in charge of the young members today."
I shuffle slightly, keeping my head down.
I don't like Chris very much...
I wish Master was training us.
Mster shows when he's mad, and we know when he's pleased.
Chris is too deceptive.
Master leaves, and we are left with Chris.
"Now, students, today, we will be learning the Death Dragon."
"Hai, sensei!" We all say, standing to attention.
"Now... I will need a volunteer." He says, eyes scanning the sea of raised hands.
I keep my hand down.
I just know this will hurt a lot.
They all think they're going to help demonstrate.
Thay are, but not in the way they think.
He spies me in the back.
"Perianth. Come out here."
He smiles cruelly and the other students snicker.
"Now, Stand ready."
I do as he says, bracing myself.
Artist's Frenzy~Time passes in a blur
Of days and nights.
Only hunger and fatigue
To mark off the hours.
Your hands are in a frenzy
Of creation and destruction.
The sculpture builds up before your eyes
And nothing else matters.
Just the artist
And your work.
RaphXReader: For the love of Engines~You pull up to the manhole on your new motorbike.
You have to show the guys this!
Though, you wouldn't say that for the world!
"Hey. What'ya got there?" A familiar voice sounds from behind you.
You whip round, heart hammering.
"Oh, Raph, it's only you!"
"Who else would it be? The boogeyman?"
You giggle uneasily. "Sorry..."
"Nah, s'ok." He says, circling the bike.
He wolf-whistles. "That is niiice!"
"Thanks! I got it for my birthday."
"Cool! Does she work well?"
"Like a dream." You answer.
Raph looks at it wistfully.
"Can I take it for a spin?"
You think for a moment.
"The bike is brand new, but he's careful with his machines. Should I?"
He looks at you with something close to puppy dog eyes.
You should know by now he won't go that far.
You give in.
"It's just too cute!"
"Ok, but get your helmet. And I'm comin' with you."
"Sure, whatever." He says, leaping into the sewer tunnels.
The things you'll do to win him over.
He comes back a few mom
MikeyXReader: Pizza and video games.You sit upside down on the sofa in the lair.
You normally come here with April, but she's not here today.
You decided you were too bored, though, so you came anyway.
"Mikey..." You mumble, poking him.
He's playing on his T-phone.
"You might as well stop now, you ain't gonna get a thing outta him." Raph says.
"Well, have you got any better ideas? I'm bored out of my mind!"
"Try waving pizza under 'is nose."
You grab a slice from beside you and look at it.
"Jelly beans?" You think. "Really?"
You wave the slice around just out of reach of his mouth.
"Ooo! Oh no! Must play game! But must eat pizza! But must play game! WHEN WILL IT END?!"
You shove the slice in his mouth and he chews.
"Thanks!" He grins at you.
"He is so adorable!" You think.
"What'ya playin'?" You ask, budging a little closer.
"Pacman!" He says, showing you the screen momentarily.
"I love that game!" You say, taking out your own ordinary phone.
"Can you do multiplayer?" Mikey asks excitedly.
