It hurt even to breathe.
She was clutching her chest as she sat at her seat, her eyes darting around her room, wondering what was wrong with her. Everyone else seemed to be fine but she didn’t understand why. Her chest hurt and she felt dizzy.
What was this feeling? She hated it. She hated the fact that her heart was racing hand her breathing was ragged as if she’d just run the mile. Her hands were shaking and the phone tumbled from her fingers.
No one seemed to notice, nor care as the phone fell to the ground and bounced slightly on the dirty old carpet.
Was this how it felt… to be heartbroken?
She hated the feeling. She wanted it gone. But how? How did one get rid of this feeling? Her mentor had once told her to ground herself. To push out all of the pain and replace it with energy. But that didn’t seem to work at all this time. She struggled to push it out and it only brought tears.
The other girl grabbed her bag, not even acknowledging the girl she had just brought to tears as she joined the boys as they left the room.
She looked to her feet, scooping up her phone numbly as well as her bag before shuffling out.
If love hurt this much, she didn’t want to love.
I don't want it
I'm sorry... I just broke up with my girlfriend and I've been in such a writing funk so I put up this (which isn't even about her...) I wanted to let you guys know that I'm not completely dead and if you guys want me to further anything or write anything specific lemme know because I would love some inspiration. 

Anyways, sorry for bothering you all with this.
Richard always liked Jessica's office.

It was always so cluttered. She had several bookshelves lining each of the back two walls of the brightly lit back room that Jessica had dubbed her office. The bookshelves held numerous hard backed fantasy novels, as well as table top and live action roleplay rule books. In front of the dusty books, were figures of dragons, bottles of coloured liquid, and even some daggers, that Jessica had acquired over the years.

Behind one bookshelf, was a large tapestry of a unicorn that Jessica had gotten when she was vacationing in Wales the previous summer.

On the wall next to the door, was a mural of a window. It seemed to lead into another world, with the realistic lighting that had been painted in. Through the mural's window, one could see a castle that rose high into the fluffy painted clouds. There was ivy climbing one side of the gray-brown stone and a wall surrounded the entire castle. Some trees peaked over the top of it, showing that there was a courtyard beyond the wall.

It was a gorgeous painting, but Jessica would never tell Richard who she had paint it.

Her desk was pushed back into one corner, making it look like it was the least important thing in the room, contrary to most offices.

In the middle of the room. there was as large, green velvet covered table. There were five chairs around it, the one at the head was a dark mahogany wood and had designs carved deep into the arm rests.

The table was usually used for the tabletop roleplay sessions hat Jessica sometimes held. However, today the table was scattered with papers, the whiteness of which were almost blinding to the eye.

Richard sat in the gilded chair, rummaging through the papers in hope of finding something on where Jessica had gone. Sebastian, Jessica's second-in-command, had reported her missing the day before, and along with the police, Richard had offered to help his friend look for her.

Richard knew that Sebastian was panicking, even if he didn't show it. The taller male ran the shop calmly, working six days a week, in order to keep the shop open and income coming in during Jessica's mysterious absence.  

Richard ran his fingers through the raven black hair that fell in his eyes as he looked down at the papers. She couldn't have just disappeared, she was Jessica Portman, owner of Eriad Coffee; the small nerd hangout at the very end of main street. She lived a normal life, LARPing with Richard and Sebastian on the weekends, and playing table top with them every Wednesday night.

The black haired boy was so caught up in his disbelief, he didn't notice the heavy wooden door to the office slowly open. The noise from the outside store could now be heard; people ordering coffee, children marveling over some of Jessica's imported models, and Sebastian and the few other employees rushing around to assist the customers.

The door slammed shut, abruptly silencing the small room once again.

Richard looked up then, his dark brown eyes scanning the office, before landing on the dark figure that had just entered the room. It was clothed in black from head to foot, even a black bandanna covering its mouth. It's eyes were dark, almost pure black, and Richard shivered at the fact that he could see no whites.

In one hand, the humanoid clutched a long katana, the blade was made of a black metal that Richard had never seen before. The humanoid made an odd whistling sound, like a bird, and moved towards the awestruck male.

Richard pushed the papers aside, staring straight at the humanoid, who was now casually swinging the katana in one hand. The olive skinned boy stood up slowly, his mind calculating how fast he could grab a knife of the book shelf to defend himself should the humanoid attack. He mentally thanked Sebastian for teaching him the correct techniques during their LARP sessions, no matter how much he complained to the older male, this would definitely be more helpful than he had originally thought.

Richard lunged for the nearest knife, his hand wrapping around the handle just as the humanoid swung at him, both hands on the handle of the katana. He parried, but had misjudged the strength of the humanoid and he groaned as he felt his arm crack.

It growled at him and pressed Richard back towards the wall. Richard pushed back weakly, his heart threatening to pound right out of his chest. The black clad person gripped their katana tighter, both hands covered in black gloves.

Richard breathed hard and pressed against the humanoid, finally finding the strength to slam the other into the opposite wall, making some of the books clatter against their shelves.

"Sebastian!" Richard yelled desperately, hoping that his friend could hear him through the door. "Sebastian!"

The creature seemed to laugh at that, catching Richard off guard. It pushed him off and sliced sideways at the tall boy. Richard gasped and stumbled back, his shirt sliced open. The black clad figure laughed again. It was a cold, in human sound that sent shivers up Richard's spine.

The thing kicked him back and Richard braced himself for the impact of the other wall.

It never came...
Heroes of Eriad
Hi... sorta alive (Not really) But this is based off of my other story (The NaNoWriMo one) because I think I'm gonna scrap that one and go for something a bit more fantastical. This will have the same cast but better storyline.. and I hope to post more LARP stories in the future! (Next camp is October 4th! sooooo excited!) 

Please enjoy!
C.C. rubbed her face, staring at the camp before her. It looked different than usual… not how she remembered it. The restrooms were a small shack, divided down the middle so that females were on the left and males were on the right. C.C. massaged her temples.
Had those been there before?
They must have been.
There was also a large center area that C.C. didn’t recognize from before. It was covered with a high arching tent that had no walls. Under it was a wood burning stove made of stone, a few preparation tables, and three picnic tables.
C.C. was almost positive that the structure wasn’t there when she had left for the orb. She spun around to see a large, sandstone wall. A standard -/their/standard- flew high on the top of the wall. But something was wrong with it. It was two dark of a red to be the standard that C.C. knew… and there was something dripping off of it. She shivered slightly, turning back to her friends. Something seemed off with them as well. They were staring at her odd and C.C. tilted her head. She raised her weapon at them in salute to her captain and they all rushed backwards.
Only their leader; Nina, and her boyfriend; Raph remained. Raph stepped towards her, his katana pointed at his feet. “C.C.,” He started calmly. “C.C. let’s talk,”
C.C. stepped back nervously, she didn’t like his tone. She gripped her staff tightly in both hands, but kept it low so as not to alarm the other heroes. C.C. wasn’t in the mood to get slaughtered.
“C.C.?” Raph asked, looking her dead in the eye, his eyebrows furrowing. “Can you put your staff down please?”
Her eyes went wide and she hugged it close. “I’ll lose it.” She murmured, looking down at it and running her fingers over the ebony body. “I don’t want to lose it.”
Raph looked back to Nina, who hesitated before motioning him to him and stepping forward slowly, both of her swords sheathed at her sides. She held out her hand, probably for the staff. “I’ll hold it for you.” She told C.C. softly/
C.C. took another step back, feeling trapped with the walls behind her and Raph and Nina seemingly closing in on her from the front. Raph took another step forward, holding his hand out expectantly for the staff. C.C. had the strong urge to hit him, to strike him down where he stood. It would only take three, easy blows to his chest. He would never suspect it, and then he’d be out for the count.
Raph noted the look in her eyes and slowly stepped back. C.C. launched herself at the tall boy in a moment of adrenaline. Raph yelled to Nina as C.C. slammed the side of her staff into his side, her eyes wild.
Nina yelled to the others, running forward and grabbing the middle of C.C.’s staff and trying to wrench it out of her hands. C.C. struggled, trying to pull away from the strong grip of her leader when she felt a sharp pain in her back. She gasped and dropped her staff, which fell neatly into Nina’s hands as the petite girl stumbled away. Raph sat down, holding a wound on his chest.
C.C. breathed hard and felt someone grab her hands, wrapping something around them and tying it off. She struggled quietly and tested the bonds as she turned to look at them.
“Get healers on both of them.” Nina commanded, going over to Raph and starting the process. Someone touched C.C.’s shoulder and she jumped as they started to lead her towards the picnic table. She growled lowly and tried to pull in the other direction.
The hand belonged to Nick, who immediately tightened his grip and pushed her down to sit on the bench. He called over four other heroes and started the healing process. He closed his eyes, focusing on her and slowly started to hum.
“What are you trying to accomplish by this?” She asked curiously. In the back of her mind, C.C. knew this was the healing process. However, the idea didn’t seem to compute in her brain as they continued to hum, focusing on her head. When no one answered her question, C.C. relaxed against the table and kicked her feet softly, wondering how much it would hurt him if she kicked Nick in the groin right now. She hummed along quietly, mockingly, and watched the rest of the heroes around her.
She began to feel drowsy as she listened to the soft, melodious sound of their humming.
Soon, she had passed out.
The Touch of a Shade
A friend ask for some more LARP based stories. So this one is the touch of a Shade. 

Shades are creatures that work for the shadow and are sometimes known to take possession of a human body. The only way you can tell if someone is touched by a shade by the ashy mark on their cheek. This possession is very painful for the victim and can even cause death. I have seen three cases of the touch of a shade, all three relatively terrifying. 

I really hope you all enjoy this!

FIRST OF ALL! JUST 'CAUSE I DON'T THANK PEOPLE FOR FAVES DOESN'T MEAN I DON'T APPRECIATE THEM! I REALLY DO! I just don't have the time (and energy) to go around thanking every person for faving my work.

I will group write for recognition!!!!
Truely, there's not much that I can tell you about myself that's not already obvious... well, I took archery and I have a recurve bow that is approx. 5 ft. 6 in. and I took fencing lessons through the summer up to winter break. I hate the snow (bummer for where I live) except when I'm skiing. I also hate indian food (another bummer considering my dad cooks it every other night)
