invading the lungs of those passing by.
The hot afternoon sun bakes the stone roads black,
the light tinged orange.
The man with the gaping eye,
his empty socket a crinkled web of scars.
A blank face looks upon me,
His once strong jaw,
now loose and misshapen from days he wishes he could forget.
He still knows their names,
they have long forgotten his.
His leathery fingers,
gnarled and twisted,
appear like the roots of an ancient oak tree.
Knuckles many times larger than they should be,
are cracked and worn,
weathered by both sun and time.
His calloused feet,
tucked and curled beneath him,
bear the scars and broken bones of times when he forgot,
crushed under foot and hoof.
He has long lost count,
it now hurts too much for him to walk.
His only eye,
it tells the story of his past,
whispering tales about the years of joy he used to have,
days so long gone they became legends to him,
legends he no longer believes in.

-/*\-Ah, forget this N1GH15LASH nonsense!! We were on vacation when it happened! So for now, it’s Jason, or what everyone that annoys me calls me, N1GH15LASH. It started at West Hill high. Our school. Lunch had just started, I sat down at my table when, “Emily Cooper to the office, please.” screeched the woman on the intercom. “Whats that about Jason?” Gryf questioned. “ I have no idea, but I'd better catch up with Emily cause this wasn't supposed to happen.” I replied as I started to run down the hall, “Emily wait!” I scream, but I was to late. Some random jags broke through the huge glass window! “Holy Crow!”Gryf screams. McKenzie front-flips over a table, powers on her armor, and drills a guy in the throat with a kunai. I sprinted as fast as I could, but I wasn't fast enoug
