GEAR!! [Abandoned]

  *Excerpt from an abandoned story concept

GEAR!!

“Finally…”

A gray pleated skirt fluttering in the slightly chilled air of autumn. A dark blazer over a white blouse, a pentagon symbol on each shoulder. It was the uniform of the Numbered Academies, specifically that of the Fifth Academy, judging by the gold number 5 stamped into each of the pentagons.

Her apricot bangs fell softly against her white skin as she positioned herself over the man’s head.

“General!”

“General!!”

“…I guess he’s dead. Hehe, what luck. Now..let’s see…I’m sure he won’t mind if I cut him up a little. The earthly body has little importance for ascended spirits! So, my dear General! I welcome your gift in full and reply with proper grace: THANKS FOR THE MEALContinue reading

 *I’m not sure why I wrote this, but I guess I did…very old piece.

“Could you look after my pet?”

It was a normal request. Simple, actually. It was something a friend would ask you when their father was suddenly struck by a heart attack.

Which had actually happened.

“Uh…what kind of pet is it?”

It was a normal question. Simple, actually. It was something a friend would ask you when they didn’t really want to take care of your pet.

“A hamster.”

“A hamster.”

“Yeah.”

“Uh…I don’t really know much about hamsters.” Continue reading
