Short and Sweet

Have you got a game, book or movie you'd like to make a story out of? Want to expand on a story or plot that stopped? Have an original idea for a story that you want to post somewhere? Here's where to do it. Basically an RPG where one player controls ALL characters in the story.

((I wrote this just for fun. Please tell me if I some grammer should be fixed or spelling. Depending on if people like this at all I might elaborate on it. But if I do that I'll have to change the name. hehe.))

Short and Sweet

I'm always early so I wait outside. The wind was chilly and I swear it bit my skin through the three layers of thick clothes. Finally my sensei showed up and let me and one other kid into the class. The minute I walked through the door, I found myself in the usual bright room and found it really warm, it only took a minute to realize I was nearly sweating. It was just me and one other kid.

I got out my binder from my backpack. The papers where falling out in every section and I almost couldn't find my pencil pouch. I got out my colored pens and a pencil. I tried to sketch a rose with the pencil but I couldn't seem to get the petals right. I kept erasing them and trying again.

Suddenly the bell rang loudly. At the sound of the bell I jumped and skrewed up the entire page. I sighed and put the paper in the trash. As I was doing this the other students began to pile into the classroom. I took my place again. The kids sat around me. Two seats away, was the guy I'd been crushing on since I walked into this class. Everytime I saw him, my heart leapt for joy because I could see him and be near him.

I pulled my gaze away from him so he wouldn't see me looking at him. Turning to the window I saw the wind picking up leaves and tossing them this way and that. The leaves reminded me of the rose petals I tried to draw. They where dead because of present Autumn and coming Winter. My rose petals seemed to have no life. There was no real reason I was drawing a rose.

Suddenly, and idea came to me. I pulled out my pen again and my pencil. I also took out two pieces of paper. one was for my class notes and the other was so I could draw. I also took out last night's homework. My teacher took a stamp of a pink dragonfly around to everyone who did their homework. I showed her my homework and then set to work on my drawing.

I placed my pencil on the paper in careful and love-filled strokes. I drew a shell and four stumpy legs. I added a small tail and a long neck with a cute sorta cartoon-like head and big round eyes. It was a turtle. I had heard that the guy I liked loved turtles. This was for him.

At the end of class I placed it on his desk when he wasn't looking. I quickly retreated beack to my desk before anyone noticed I had put something on his desk. He looked down to his desk a second later and noticed it. As I watched him pick up the picture, I sat in my seat waiting for something to happen. He slowly and carefully folded it and put it in a pouch in his backpack.

My heart silently rejoiced. The bell rang again signaling that we could leave. My tounge messed with the rubberband in my braces, like I always do when I'm happy. I swear the piece of rubber nearly snapped because I was messing with it so much.

We all exited the class, him just before me. I was hungry so I pulled out the apple slices from my lunch. I placed a slice in my mouth and continued to walk. The wind was still blowing and my heart was still racing. I walked behind him for a while. I placed another apple slice in my mouth. Something on his backpack caught my eye. I looked down a little more and saw a tiny hot pink turtle keychain. I chuckled to myself.

Well this was a delayed comment, but here goes;

I liked it. Your good at describeing feelings and emotions.
(unfortunately I have to put up with stuff like this from a freind of mine each week. It seems she ALWAYS has a crush on someone and you can never tell how long its going to last :/ So I found it kindve funny in that regard. )
