25 Story Challenge 14: Smile"Hey Mikey, you ready?" Peri says.
"Yeah! This is gonna be so cool!" I jump up and down.
"What is?" Raph says.
"Peri's taking me on a date!" I say, grinning.
"I promised." Peri says, putting an arm round me.
"Yup! It's gonna be EPIC!"
"...Fine. But if I find one scratch, scrape, even the tiniest pockmark on her, you're shell is gonna be in New Jersey."
"Pssshh, you always underestimate me. Ooo, gum!" I dive for it.
Raph bats it out of my hand.
"Don't eat that!"
I hang my head. "'Kay."
"Good luck." Raph says, going back to Spike.
"C'mon, you." Peri says, giving me a noogie. "We're taking Shell Raiser!"
"Woooh!" I shout, punching the air.
"Where are we goin', Peri? Huh? Huh?" I say excitedly, jumping in my seat.
"Well, Mikey, RJ's friend Toby has bought pizza, and I've picked a great roof. We'll go skateboarding aft
25 Story Challenge 13: RoseI sit at my desk, writing.
After a few moments, there's a knock at the door.
"Hey, RJ. Sensei wants to speak with you." Peri says.
I nod and get up, going down to the dojo.
"Ah, I wanted to go over a few training steps with you." Sensei says.
I bow and face him.
"Now, you will need to..."
I sigh and rub my sore joints.
"You did very well, you are very close to my son's levels now, and it has only been a few months."
I bow. "Thank you, sensei."
"Now, go and rest."
I turn and go.
That was hard.
But I'm glad I'm getting better.
I go into my room and walk to my desk.
A red rose sits on the papers.
A question mark is written on a peice of paper tied to the stalk.
I put the rose in a vase and fill it with water from the kitchen.
"That is beautiful, Rhiannon, where did it come from?" Sensei says, coming through.
"It appeared on my desk, sensei."
He says nothing, but I see the startings of a smile.
"You know who put it there, don't you, sensei?"
"I do not
Stolen MomentI sit next to her, watching.
I fight alien robots and weed monsters.
But I can't even get the guts to do something this simple.
If I walk back into the workshop now, the guys will never,
let me live it down.
I can hear them all.
I'll pound them into the ground.
But it'll still be the same.
"Hey, Raph." She says, finally looking up. "What's wrong?"
"Oh, nothing much, I'm just watching..."
Raph, you idiot!
You could have done it just then.
I take a deep breath and she puts down her pad.
I lean over.
I keep my eyes tight shut.
But I've definitly done it.
I pull away and get up quickly, leaving the room.
"Dude! You cannot just hit and run like that!" Donnie says.
Are you sure?!
-------------------------------------------------11 years from now----------------------------------------------------------------
"Aunty RJ! Aunty RJ!"
I poke my head out from under the Shell Raiser to find a five year old Toby wearing Donnie's goggles.
"Heh. You look cute, Tobes. Having fun?"
He nods, the looks at me properly, his eyes turning purple.
"Why are you pink? Where is your tail?"
I laugh and turn back into myself.
"There!" I say. "Is that better?"
He nods again, giving me a hug round my knees.
"Hey, RJ." Peri says, looking tired.
"Aunty RJ!" Lilly shouts, trying to get at me.
"Go get her." Peri says, putting her down.
I catch her quickly, picking her up and tossing her in the air.
"You ok, Peri?" I ask, hugging her hello.
"Yeah, but this terror here won't sleep. At all. I would ask sensei, but I'm scared he'll think I'm not capable."
"Nonesense! Sensei thinks you're a great mum. Go and ask him, and I'll see to these two."
"Yeah, ok." She turns to leave, then
Dreams of realityA pair of eyes;
Open and stare through the lights,
Into the darkness of doom.
And yet they smile,
Yet they smile.
A drop of tear;
Seeps through the garden of death;
Falls to the mortal soil.
Dreams and desires will blend again,
To render the roses alive.
I am floating through a vision.
Like ripples, floating through the pond of life.
Can reality be so real?
Let me drown again,
Into the silence of familiar noise.
As I wander through the lanes of reason and passion.
The flame of hope burns bright,
Drenched in the colors of freedom.
So let my dreams unravel my soul,
As darkness fades away;
And let mortality draw me closer to destiny.
As these pair of eyes,
Open to stare through the lights again.
Is this reality?
Can reality be so real?
Time passes by, as the eyes keep staring;
Staring at the distant lights;
Staring beyond the distant skies.
What do they see?
What do they long?
What do they desire?
Then the skies will break down;
White lightning striking the dreamy clouds.
Moments will tur
