Crossing ArielYour wedding;Crossing Ariel9 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
you spoke your way toward it
one prospect at a time;
having not been
the cripple or whore,
you settled for
singularity, no future or past,
just announcement and umbra, joy in shade,
soft smiting breath.
How though did you put your children away?
squinting toward dawn.
If your days had been counted
perhaps you would have gone off
fatter, sated as a rook scavenging
in the quiet
instead of blindly staring out bread crumbs
like a gassed canary.
The shine of your boy's hungry mouth
did not dissuade your long whim;
to any call of loneliness
the answer was a towel,
clean and wet

the frustration of reality
when the man who works the wine section
pauses in his tracks to make sure
you've found everything you "really need...are you sure?"
With a look that tells you
he finds you sort of beautiful
and you wonder how your life
might be different,
if any man other than this one
had ever looked at you like that.

"Oh dear... oh dear..." Jane said nervously. Jane and Ariel's faces were struck with fright, as they were surrouned by the huge horde of baboons. Ariel and Jane backed up slowly, "Jane?" "Yeah? Ariel gulped, "I think now would be a good time to-" GRRRRAWAAW! The baboons growled menacingly and lunged after the two princesses. "RUUUN!" Ariel and Jane shrieked, running for their lives, with the baboons racing after their heels. Both of them screaming, running, gasping for breath as they ran towards no end of the jungle. Hope was seen in front though: A huge vine! "JANE! THAT VINE CAN HOLD US BOTH!" Jane turned to Ariel, "OH... ALRIGHT, LET'S DO

"Of course he'd buy me something shiny to appease me," Ariel thought bitterly. She wept over the shoes she had treasured just mere hours earlier. "I should've realized it sooner. He always showers me with gifts when he feels guilty. Why does he think he can ease his conscience and buy my affection with a stupid pair of shoes? It's like he doesn't even know me."
Ariel had lost herself in daydreams of the ball for many weeks. She imagined the beautiful, shimmering dress she would wear; elegant and form fitting with a slit up the side. It would show the perfect amount of leg. Eric had always told her how beautiful and sexy her legs were.

Ariel and the Ticklen As you look out into the vast expanse of any ocean in the world, questions usually come to mind. Questions like: "What is the world like down there? What else is down there to discover? Is there a world down there that we haven't seen yet?" The truth of the matter is that there is indeed a lot worth exploring below the surface, and where there is a world to explore, there is usually a curious and adventurous mind eager to explore it.Ariel and the Ticklen3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

Ariel and Eric were about to have sex. Before her three days were up, Ariel needed to get that kiss. They still had not kissed, but Ariel sent enough messages to make Eric understand her intentions. She did not know that if she had sex within the three days, the spell would turn her into seawater. They both took off each other's clothes and got into bed. The second it started, Eric was surprised to be suddenly drenched in seawater while Ariel was nowhere in sight. He swallowed some of the water and coughed as his pores soaked up the rest. Eric moaned as his feet suddenly cracked and shrank down a few sizes. They arched slightly and became dai

Main Characters: Eliot and Eric
Setting: Several years before Little Merman
Eliot was tired as hell. Which was not an expression you would ever hear coming from his lips, but it fit his current situation perfectly. And yet, even when he was alone in the library, with his personal tutor gone to get another load of heavy leather books, Eliot didn't let his shoulders sag an inch.
He was, after all, the future King. Never mind that he was only twelve years old.
Perfection was expected from him, from the way he stood to the way he breathed, all perfectly controlled and measured. He had to know not only his own kingdom's r

Setting: Several years before Little Merman. Before 'Royal Babysitter'.
There was a tense noise, a faint wave that came from his door, and Ursule knew his father had left. The winding net of weeds and decaying flesh would have sealed the entrance. His father tended to do that more and more lately. Ursule had assumed it was to keep people from breaking in (Atlantica had a much larger community than Deep Abyss... or maybe it was that he could make them all out in the light?), but since just a few days ago, Ursule had to wonder if it wasn't meant to keep people
