A Fresh Start - Chapter 6
"Jared, so you're telling us that Joey pushed you into your home, held you hostage, and cut you whenever you screamed? Then tried to sexually assault you and Pierce saved you?" Copper asks.
"Yes, Mr. Copper."
"Joey this is unlike you. We'll be keeping you longer. Jared, Pierce, you're free to go." Booker says, opening the door.
"I'm sorry for this, Pierce." I say, as we walk out of the Police Station.
"It's alright " he says lowly. We walk back to his house.
"I'm just going to go." I say, nodding. I turn away, and my nose starts pinching, like I'm about to cry. A few minutes later, I bump into Serane.
"Oh, hello. Your name's Jared?" she asks.
"Yep." I respond.
"You look down "
"Come with me, Jared." She says, grabbing my hand. She drags me to her house. As we walk in, I see Rosie, sitting on a bed with a tea set next to her. Serane nudges me to sit next to Rosie, who hands me a warm cup of tea.
"We thought that everything you went through you'd want som
A Knight Thing - Chapter 3"Wake up, sleepy head "Eagus muffles, seeing Link still asleep on his bicep. Link sits up and looks at the man.
"What time is it ?"
"It's about 6am." Eagus says, as he gets up from the bed. Link does the same. Link gets on his waistcloth and his belt, and Eagus puts on his tunic and shawl.
"I wanted you to know, I'm going to be eighteen in few months."
"I already knew that. How could I forget?" Eagus chuckles.
"I know, but you're 28. If someone finds out about what we're doing in the months I'm still seventeen, things could get ugly." Link says, fixing his hair in a mirror in the bathroom. After putting on his cap, Eagus walks over.
"No one's going to find out anything. I promise." Eagus says, putting a hand on Link's shoulder. After seeing him in the mirror, Link turns around.
"I never actually said it but I like you a lot." Link admits.
"I feel the exact same." Eagus says, putting his hand behind Link's neck. He pulls him in for a quick kiss. Afte
A Knight Thing - Chapter 2
"I wonder if Groose has something to do with this " Eagus wonders, as they fly around Skyloft.
"Maybe we should check Groose's hideout, Link." Link nods, and Eagus flies Navy over there promptly. Link holds on tightly as he flies swiftly.
"I see Red! I mean red feathers!" Link shouts, pointing to the bird locked in a prison. Eagus pulls out a small sword, and cuts the ropes.
"Red!" Link steps over, petting his Loftwing. Red bumps Link's head playfully.
"Red looks like he really loves you, Link " Eagus trails.
"Sure does. Ready to fly?" Link says, sitting atop Red.
"You know it!" Eagus says, jumping onto Navy.
They quickly fly into the sky, almost as if nothing was wrong with the world they live in.
"Catch me if you can, ya big lug!" Link shouts to Eagus.
"Oho, I will, pretty boy!"
"Pretty boy?" Link wonders, as his heart starts racing. He looks over to Eagus, who's taking off his cap. He rubs his hair, and put it back on without hesitation. Many hours pass, with
A Knight Thing - Chapter 1
"Time for class, everyone!" Horwell tells to the class. Link quickly lifts his head up from the table.
"Link, are you feeling okay?" Pipit asks, looking at him funny.
"Yeah, I just tend to get an upset stomach if I don't get any sleep." Link whispers, looking at the instructor as he babbles, looking toward the chalkboard.
"Why didn't you sleep?"
"Gooooood morning, everyone!!!" Zelda comes in through the door, with her arms raised.
"Zelda! You mustn't do this. Sit in your seat." Horwell scolds lightly. She quickly scuttles to her seat.
"Hi Link." Zelda whispers, brushing her fingers through the back of his hair.
"Morning, Zelda." Link turns to her.
"Link you're green!" Zelda flabbergasts.
"Instructor Horwell! Link's sick!!" Zelda shouts. He turns around to see Link green in the face.
"Hm, yes. I'll write you a pass to the infirmary." He says, taking a pencil and a small piece of paper.
"Wimp." Groose says, chuckling with Strich and Cawlin. Link walks up and takes the p
A Knight Thing- Prologue
"Nice job, Link!" Eagus chuckles, getting up from the floor.
"Really? Thanks!" He says, putting his hands on his hips. Putting his Practice Sword in his sheath, he waits for the other to walk over.
"Nice game today, boy." Eagus nods, putting his oversized sword onto the floor. He walks into the back room, and comes back out with two bottles filled with pumpkin soup. Tossing one of the bottles to Link, he holds it to the air, after taking the cork out. Link does the same.
"Cheers." Link says. Eagus reciprocates, and they quickly chug it down. He quickly takes the bottles back to the storage room.
"Aw, damnit." Eagus snaps.
"What's wrong?" Link asks.
"All out of pumpkin soup!"
"Oh, I'm sorry " Link trails.
"Don't worry about it buddy. Let me walk you out." Eagus says, putting a hand on Link's shoulder.
"I'll see you tomorrow evening!" Link says, running off. Eagus nods, and quickly locks up the Sparring Hall.
"Oh, hey Link. A bit late, huh?" Pipit says as he sees Link running ba
ViolinI remember the day
you told me violins
were strung with cat gut
and that is why
you hated music
(who says that to a child?)
I followed you
all that summer.
I watched you
grow away from mother -
your whiskey held better conversations
and all she did was cry.
We'd sit cross-legged on the porch
and count the horseflies
settling on our lunch.
You would drown tadpoles
in a bucket
surprised they could not swim
and I would dream
of cherry popsicles.
And when night would gather
on the sidewalk
I'd hold my breath
until a star appeared.
Don't bother making wishes
you'd tell me -
stars are dead weight in heaven
and God has cloth ears.
Keep in Touch!
