• Brandi commented on the post, aura 6 years ago

    “You have a beautiful aura,” Roshi had said. “I can see it–it’s so beautiful.”

    But that was only what he said–he who was a liar, a thief, a corrupt man of the night. Things that came from his mouth could not wisely be trusted, and the things that he did could not be repeated. Joey wouldn’t allow himself to be fooled by the others’ deceptions;…[Read more]

  • Brandi commented on the post, intrigue 6 years ago

    There was a certain amount of a strange air that coated his being that made him different from the other men that she had seen before. He was fascinating; he was sophisticated. He was responsible and handsome and intriguing. She would love to spend the rest of her life with someone like that.

  • Brandi commented on the post, historic 6 years ago

    “A historic masterpiece.”

    “A divine piece that will surely have its place in these walls.”

    “To whoever made this work–well done!”

    He sat behind the curtains, hidden from the spectator’s view. A coward he was, a coward he was not–he wasn’t sure, and neither was his uncle because his uncle claimed that he was a scaredy-cat and a…[Read more]

  • Brandi commented on the post, welt 6 years ago

    A welt resided on his arm. Miss. Kelburg could see it as plain as day underneath his damp shirt. How difficult.

    Miss. Kelburg hoped Steven’s home life wasn’t as bad as her’s had been. Neither her father nor her mother ever raised a hand against her; it was always her brother with Mr. and Mrs. Kelburg. She had witnessed first-hand what people…[Read more]

  • Brandi commented on the post, wilting 6 years ago

    “She’s wilting,” Joey whispered to me one humid summer afternoon. “Ole Willow’s wilting.”

    Of course, Ole Willow wasn’t really wilting. She wasn’t wilting as a daisy wilts after its gardener forgets to water it after a few days, nor was she wilting as someone of a broken heart does. But I knew what Joey meant. He meant that an ending–an ending…[Read more]

  • Brandi commented on the post, national 6 years, 1 month ago

    The news went national soon enough. At first Jeremy thought that no one would listen to Lisa Marie, but he was quickly proven wrong. The “crazy girl next girl” new how to tell a lie.

    He was scared. He was scared for himself, and scared for Jonathan. They had done nothing that was wrong in any way(or that’s what he kept telling himself) and…[Read more]

    “All things in nature are worthwhile,” she whispered to me as we sat underneath the tree. “The only difference between something that looks as though it’s significant and something that looks as if though my Uncle Rowy painted it while drunk off of rum is what we make it.

  • Brandi commented on the post, wealthy 6 years, 1 month ago

    The wealth was enough to get to anyone’s head, she supposed, but she knew in her heart that her father wouldn’t have done anything differently if he had been in her position. Or she told herself that. If she stopped thinking that he would have supported her no matter what then she would lose face and would become “another servant girl under King…[Read more]

  • Brandi commented on the post, wrapped 6 years, 2 months ago

    The turkey was wrapped tightly in the ham and cheese in preparation of Father’s homecoming. It was, according to Mother, his favorite snack and something that he had personally requested her to make when he returned. She told me this in such a way that I knew there was something that I wasn’t getting–that I couldn’t get without further…[Read more]

  • Brandi commented on the post, wrath 6 years, 3 months ago

    If you are not so very careful the he would show you his wrath. The wrath of the gods, some said; but only some. The king’s wrath to the rebels was like a backstroke to the face: swift and quick, meaning that it would never totally bring them down. If King Charles the Whateverith wanted to send his troops into the Dark Forest where they would…[Read more]

  • Brandi commented on the post, sail 6 years, 11 months ago

    She was sailing, sailing, sailing, oh so far away.

    He would never catch up with her. He, Tommy Willsmith, the little boy down the street, the apprentice of the cobbler, would never catch up with high-society heiress Lela Freeman. Ever. The night before–with their huge fight over whether she should return to her sick mother or not–had been the…[Read more]

  • Brandi commented on the post, shown 6 years, 11 months ago

    Some things, he decided, were shown from the Above Ones, and other things were not.

    It truly was the most interesting thing to try and discover the things that were not shown, to try and out-smart the Above […]

    She was raised in high society and acted like it. Kelly knew that if she was to ever go against her family’s wishes, then things would not be pretty for her. She had witnessed first-hand the physical and […]

  • Brandi commented on the post, dominant 6 years, 11 months ago

    It was common knowledge that in the year of the sun, democrats were dominant on the countryside. Their generally liberal points of views were the only thing that mattered; what the republicans had to say did not. […]

  • Brandi commented on the post, scene 6 years, 11 months ago

    The scene was horrific, there was no doubt.

    But of course, no one would mention anything about it. No one ever did. They were all too afraid to speak to the authorities, the pathetic little creatures. As far as […]

    The walls are closing in, John thought to himself.

    “Was this not what had happened to her father?” he asked the doctor.

    Some said that there were signs in the stars. Not constellations–because Joey knew that was true, as he seen them every time he stepped outside on his porch in the middle of night–but real signs, signs that […]

    They all want help, but Selly was afraid that she wouldn’t be able to give them any. She had a very limited amount of oil and ointment, and there were one thousand people in desperate need of help. There would be […]
