Nezushi: The Vow It was still dark and the cold wind pierced his skin as he walked, causing him to grip his super fibre cloth tighter to his body. It was hard to believe that spring was closing in soon with this kind of weather, but this place was definitely known for its harsh winters.Nezushi: The Vow2 months ago in Short Stories More Like This
"Probably one of the worst yet.” He remembered Inukashi babbling the night before. “If it wasn’t for Shion and his restoration whatever group, a lot more people would have probably froze to death. But even then, the ones who died were the poor bastards too damn stubborn to accept any help.”
It looked like Shion had undoubtedly made a differe
No. 6 FF - As Time Goes On - 1The flood of people streaming towards the boundary of the city was mesmerizing. People clad in suits, dressed for the part of a proper city, collided with men draped in tattered hand-me-downs and shawls. They paused at the brink of the shattered remains of the wall that had separated them for so long. A brief moment of hesitation persisted, leaving the two once separated societies to look upon one another with shy interest. But just as the wall had, the tension broke away and dissipated.No. 6 FF - As Time Goes On - 12 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

I stared up at the ceiling and let out a huge sigh as my mind tried to go into unconsciousness. Unfortunatly, I couldn't. How could anyone fall asleep when right beside you was this adorable face that you wanted to take in your hands and kiss it senseless. I turned to my side and gazed at that face, Shion's beautiful face. He looked so peaceful and happy when he slept, a little smile on his face.
I reached out and touched that soft snowy white hair I loved so much. I saw him move his head into my palm and sigh happily with a bigger smile on his face. My heartbeat sped up and I smiled as well.
A whisper escaped his pink lips a
You and I Shion couldn't find his friend. Again. Nezumi was pretty good at that- disappearing and not turning up for awhile, even if you were looking for him. He rarely showed himself unless he intended himself to, like some sort of phantom. Shion, on the other hand, stuck out like a sore thumb wherever he went and no matter how badly he wished to not be noticed. Back in No. 6, it was possible, but now that his appearance had changed so drastically with bright white hair , he stood in sharp contrast to the general dirt of West District.You and I2 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

"He misses me " Shion murmured under his breath. "Nezumi "
Shion floundered for a moment with his legs, stepping forward shakily to stand before the table. He tried to get closer to Nezumi's image imprinted upon the wall, but found that his own shadow stole away the picture, blocking out Nezumi's face. Edging along the wall slowly, Shion stood as close to the picture's subject as he could without blocking it. He didn't kno
No. 6 FF - As Time Goes On - 7With very little warning, a couple of months swept past. Every day seemed to drag on achingly, as though every single minute was spent staring at an analog clock that never seemed to change. Yet, throwing all of the days together as one, they blurred into weeks, and then swept full into months with little accord. Looking back, Shion remembered each painfully slow day individually, but felt as if no time at all had occurred total.No. 6 FF - As Time Goes On - 71 year ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

No. 6 FF - As Time Goes On - 2The days seemed to whip by in a blur that made little sense. They were filled with watching idly as the city was virtually remade. Construction seemed to be a top priority, as many buildings had been damaged during the Holy Day, and new houses were being built from the ground up for any Western District people that chose to say. Many people had died during the event, Shion quickly learned. Those that had passed would leave their empty job positions open to new residents that fit the bill.No. 6 FF - As Time Goes On - 22 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

Back and forth, both at separate speeds; they had to look in the opposite direction to catch the other's eyes. Nezumi slowed to a stop after several minutes, leaning on the thick chain of his seat while he watched Shion zip higher into the air. The white-haired boy was laughing, jubilation spread from ear to ear. A blush adorned his cheeks, and warm breath rose from his lips.No. 6 FF - As Time Goes On - 91 year ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

Words absolutely failed the white-haired boy. He was normally rather good at filling in awkward silences with nervous stutters and many questions, yet now his voice was stolen away by the cold, forced to remain hidden and silent under a thick layer of shock. How long had he stood there now? How long had this silence persisted? He could not

Dogkeeper's words rang in Shion's ears over and over again like the buzzing of cicadas. He could not help but consider what the woman had stated. What if Nezumi really did not want to be found? What if Shion did perhaps try to search for the man, only to find that once he managed to succeed, Nezumi would simply shut him down? He kicked at the dirt below in a

But Dogkeeper didn't seem so pleased to see him. Her nose wrinkled up into a snarl, and a very real growl escaped her lips as she narrowed her eyes at him. "You idiot!" she exclaimed, angrily lashing the air with her arm. "What are you doing out here alone? Are you trying to get yourself killed?"

Honestly, he didn't understand why Nezumi sounded so tense over the situation. It was just a baby, after all. The white-haired boy could think of no reason for that to cause any sort of concern. And yet, Nezumi was on edge, his knuckles clenching the edge of the couch while he stared at Shion with a hostile expression. He almost seemed jealous. But jealous of what exactly? A baby?

Just the very thought made him skip from a rosy tone, to one that rivaled the very colour of his irises. In fact, just the thought of blushing over the matter was enough to make him flush even more.
