I had to know the whole story despite how terrible the truth seemed to be. I remember how strange of a day that it had been previously, all of it started with that morning. I have always loved to explore, adventure, and sneak around. Late at night I would often slide out of bed and sneak around the…

The area I was in was no different compared to the first time I had traversed through here. The grounds were still…

His eyes closed "I liked eden, but there's no point in thinking about it....father he...traps me here..." He brushed his hands through his hair, he'd never spoken of his father...he didn't like to think about it. Though, he distracted himself from the troubling thoughts by groping the younger. His hands tailed over the pale skin, indulging himself in it hungrily.…

Just because of one mistake. The barbed wire goes through my hand, I can feel it hitting my bone but that's it. I can't feel anything. It's almost like my body has given up.

    My pet ran away and I know she isn 't coming back this time. As I lay on the couch, I start to worry. She left a few hours ago and I can 't help but think about the events that occurred before she ran away.

    The best word to describe who I am as a person is kind of impossible for me to decide. So I 'll pick two words: son and brother. The reason for it being impossible, is because half of who I am is brought about from me being a son, and the other half from being a brother. So to have me choose between the two wouldn 't do me any justice. Nor would it accurately describe me as a person, the morals I follow, and why I follow those morals. By being a brother and son, it brought out certain…
