I stood on the balcony connected to my room, waiting for the first star. Even if it was winter, I still went out every night wishing on the first star, hoping to gain love with the guy that I had wanted that night.At the same time every night I would look up and pray, "Please let me be with Tadase-kun." And everyday I would go to school hoping my wish would be granted. And everyday nothing happened, so I'd wait till night fall and try again.Except, tonight was different. Tonight my thoughts were filled with someone else.Tonight all I would wish for was for Ikuto to come home.

I smiled to my self and said "Dear God, If you are really out there

Literature Deviation TutorialdA Literature Tutorial: reading and submittingReading Literature on DeviantARTEach literature deviation is displayed within a box (there may also be a preview image displayed above it). The first line in this box is always the deviation title, as a first-level heading. The second line has the word "by" followed by the author's username (as a link). The rest of the deviation has been written by the author.At the top, right-hand corner of a literature deviation, you may see five buttons, depending on the category. These buttons will be my main focus for this part of the tutorial.(at the moment, I think the categories are a bit buggy - as of December 9, 2012, or possibly earlier, this seems to have been fixed.

Lifes Twists and Turns Amy walked briskly toward the sidewalk. She leaned around one of the cars blocking her sight of the street. Quickly shifting the basket she held to her shoulder she crossed the street and continued on to the park. A gust of wind blew her quills into her face and cooled her down from the hot summer day. She could smell fire coming from backyards while children had fun cooking things in it. The Summer breeze complemented it nicely making the air smell crisp. Amy spotted Cream right away as she entered through the park gate. "Hey," Cream shouted, "over here Amy!" she waved happily to Amy who ran toward her friend. "Hey Cream." Amy said setting down the basket and wrapped her arms around Cream.
Shadamy Two of a Kind FinalChpThe next morning Amy called in sick to her training. She took a bath and sat in her window-seat, looking down on the street. Not knowing what to do with herself, she got out a sketch pad. Amy wasnt that much of an artist, but she did alright. She began to sketch different people on the street, then found herself drawing Shadow. She frowned, and began to rub it out.Amy stopped. Shadow. Sonic. Sonic loved Sally, not her. She could accept that now. She got up to the phone and held the phone in her hand. Her heart trembled, and the phone shook slightly in her hands. She jabbed the buttons, and put the phone to her ear. Amy shook all over, her stomach being enveloped by nothingness. Why was she so nervous? Her heart nearly stopped when she heard the phone ring.What felt like an eternity later, an answer came.Hello?Amys heart stopped and she gasped for breath. Hello? Is this your idea of a joke Sonic? Its not funny you ass.Amy gasped. No,

Fighting for you shadamyProlouge:Little Shadow sat upon the temple porch admiring the peach trees from afar while sipping his tea. It was forbidden for a Tengu* to take a step out from the temples gates. It must cause havoc and danger for humans (normal animals?)."This is so boring." he muttered to himself as he took another sip of his chai tea.He sat up and stretched "Well, I'm going inside." he said to himself as he gathered up his mangas and drank the remaining tea from his cup, but then, a ball rolled in."What the?" he picked the round polka-dotted thing "What is this thing? Some sort of week demon?" he admired. Stupid Shadow.He heard cries from the temple gates. Cries of children laughing and yelling and ... crying."Who left the temple gates open?" he asked himself and saw three boys and one girl picking on something, or someone."Your a liar Amy!" one of the boys called."Yeah! Theres no such thing as demons!" the girl mocked. She pointed at the little hedgehog in shame of her.The little hedgehog

A Locket Full Of LoveSonic POVI ran cutting through the warm summer air. Amy Rose was after me again. Sonic! Please stop. I heard her pant, probably stopped to catch her breath. I actually stopped this time, for a reason unknown. I turned and watched her approach me with a hand over her heart as she breathed hard. Thank you. She sighed as she approached me.Amy I dont want to have to run away from you anymore. I just want to be friends and stay friends. I said quietly. A tiny bit of shock formed on her face. Luckily she didnt seem sad. It would kill me if I made her cry.I actually wasnt going to talk about that, but I...understand. I just wanted to give you, She reached into a pocket of her jeans and pulled out an object, this. she gently grasped my hand and curled my fingers around the object.
