|All things with our wonderful little PK Boy from Onett~|
The PowerFalling, falling, he’s falling into the darkness and can’t see a thing while he clenches his eyes shut so tightly in fear. There’s no end to it and, as he falls, it feels like he’s floating without any control. Everything is dark, everything is strange, and all that exists is silence; deafening, frightening silence. It’s like he’s died and is falling to the pits of hell now – to the center of the Earth where all is darkness and where one is never seen again. It’s almost like in killing part of himself, the darkness in his heart and in his mind, that he’s killed himself outright.The Power by PK-Ness
Ness is afraid of that – afraid of what’s happened on Earth, what’s happened to his friends and what’s going to happen if he’s failed the mission to save the world. Will it be the end for them all? Was it all a mistake to begin with? No, he was sure it wasn’t – he was certain it was all meant to be, but nothing made
A Stab of Happiness“Man, this place is paradise, haha!”A Stab of Happiness by PK-Ness
The words left Ness’ mouth in an instant as they – he, Paula, Jeff and their newly made friend, Poo – all wound up at the beach in a new set of clothing that was perfect for the semi-tropical setting. T-shirts, shorts, and in Paula’s case, a one piece bathing suit that caught a few glances not only from the passing men, but from the boys in the group, themselves. It was to be expected – they were all a bunch of teens and Paula was a beautiful girl! Even as thoughts drifted into their heads about the blonde girl, they were just as quickly discharged with a slight blush crossing their cheeks. No need to think about that – they might be teens, but they were still only kids, too.
The sun was high in the cloudless sky, beaming down at them with such a perfect summer temperature; it was hardly a wonder why this place was so popular. The beaches were clean with perfect sand for building sand castles, o
SunriseThe daily rising of the sun…Sunrise by PK-Ness
It’s one of the most underestimated miracles of the Earth; something that we rarely pay attention to in the ways that we should. Its sight alone can energize us and give us strength to go on when nothing else seems to work. It casts aside the darkness of the night in favor of a new day, where new things and possibilities are available to each and every living being. There’s so much you can learn from the simplest, most fundamental parts of life. Stop, now, to take a moment and appreciate the sun for what it brings. All life on Earth stems from its power to shine every day.
I used to take the sun for granted, too. It was just a part of life that nobody praised, just like nobody praises the grass for growing or the leaves on trees for turning orange and yellow in the fall. It’s such a common theme, it never seemed like there was very much to look into or care for. It’s a perspective that changed with a fateful talk – one t
Gender Roles3 AM.Gender Roles by PK-Ness
I found myself looking over at the clock next to my bed, quietly and gently shifting to move out of bed, as to not wake Paula, who slept peacefully next to me with a face worthy of only an angel. It wasn’t the first time I’d woken up at 3 AM; my body had a habit of doing it and I had no real explanation for it. I’d been told when I was fifteen that 3 AM was the devil’s hour and psychics reacted especially badly to the energy that flowed through the Earth at that time, but it’s safe to say that’s just a myth. Paula would’ve woken, too, but she never woke up during the night like me.
Silently, I pulled myself out of bed and wandered through the house Paula and I had gone and started renting; small and cozy, but large enough for a frugal family – a life we’d well intended to live despite my now rich mother and father. I took a seat on the couch and sighed quietly to myself. Whenever I woke up at these times when the vampires stil
