Cost of Freedom (10/??)

Summary: In which Hakuba visits. Prison ! AU

[Beginning]     [Previous Chapter]     [Next Chapter]

The days seem to blend into one another until Kaito is woken up early on a saturday morning by other prisoners yelling that they’re getting visitors today.

It’s louder than it usually is, more rowdy, and when Kaito sits up, yawning, he wonders why there are more people excited today.

“Apparently,” Shinichi says, having heard him shift from below, “they’re opening the second visiting room today, and double the prisoners are getting guests.”

Which explains the sheer noise of it all. It’s like words a bouncing off of the walls, getting louder and louder as they echo into the various hallways of C-block. Kaito almost wants to shout at them to be quiet, and to let him think, but he doesn’t exactly want to think at the moment.

He wonders how the day will go - Hakuba had said over the phone that he would be there on the next visiting day, would get his father to sort out the details, since it’s a police issue and he’s going to be the leading consultant on it. Kaito doesn’t care how the detective figures it out, as long as he shows up.

I can't deny it anymore...

At first I tried to be reasonable, tried to be neutral… I even denied what my instincts were telling me all those months ago but no, I won’t anymore…

To hell with caution…

So I wish to announce here and now because I no longer wish to hide…that…

…I am…

… a REYLO…


So unfollow me if you want to… It will be like water off a duck’s back…

…I don’t care…you’re free…

I’m now free too…

No more self denial. No more ignoring what my instincts were saying after TFA… That Kylo is going to fall in love with Rey and that Rey …just may…may return those feelings to a redeemed Ben…



I look forward to reading more Reylo blogs, so far I’ve just been dipping my tippy toes in the fandom…my blog will remain pretty much the same I’ll just be more vocal about my Reylo …Peace out.

anonymous asked:

I need your help. (If that's okay of course) an ex just came back into my life. He left for college while I finished my last year now he's back for the summer and wants to work on things. I'm scared to because he cheated and got angry/aggressive. I've been ignoring and avoiding him since he got back but it's getting harder to because his family and my family are close and I can't continue to hide in my room.

all I had to read was “cheated and got angry/aggressive” to tell you to NOT GET BACK WITH HIM. You ARE more and you DESERVE more than that. Aggressive behavior can lead to abuse. It sucks your families are close so here is my advice. It’s going to be impossible to completely avoid him unless you want to miss out on other fun things, so face him. But don’t fall for his tricks and games, he’s not worthy. It’s okay to chat with him if necessary, but make sure it’s clear you’re not interested in starting a relationship again. BE BRAVE, i love you

Preference #77: He sees your scars
  • A/N: I was listening to Good Enough by Little Mix while writing this and it made me kind of cry ah okay enjoy.
  • Michael: The second he sees them he looks into your eyes and gently takes your arm in his hands as he stars at the scars on your wrists. His eyes flicker up to yours and you can see tears starting to form in them. He reaches out for your face and shakes his head. "Please don't do this. You're so beautiful, (Y/N). I know things can get hard, but it hurts me knowing you're hurt..." He gently grabbed your face and kisses you, his lips lingering on yours for a few moments before he pulled away and looked at you straight in the eyes. "I'm not going to ask you to stop, but at least try... I get it how hard it can get sometimes, but I'm here to help you get through this, okay?" You nodded your head and cuddled with him the rest of the night, thanking that you had him around.
  • Ashton: He stood in front of you with a horrified look on his face when he saw the scars on your thighs. He now understood why you always told him you hated wearing shorts or even a bathing suit. He took a step towards you and grabbed onto your hands, rubbing the back of them with his thumb. "This scares me a lot because I used to be in your position and I really just want you to know that I am here to help you get through the struggles in your life. I love you, okay? Every little part of you, even those scars." You stared up into his eyes and wrapped your arms around his neck, tearing up.
  • Calum: His hands wandered around your body and landed on your stomach. He lifted up your shirt slightly and his fingers landed on your scars on your stomach. He stopped and looked up at you, you froze choking back tears. You were afraid he was going to freak out, but instead he surprised you by lifting your shirt up a little more and kissing each one of the scars which made you break down and cry. He didn't even have to say anything to you because his gesture meant the world to you. "You are beautiful." He whispered in your ear before kissing you on the cheek and holding you in his arms, making you feel loved.
  • Luke: His eyes shifted and locked on your arms, noticing the old and fresh cuts on your arm. He stopped what he was doing and dropped his phone, rushing over to you and engulfing you in his arms. "I'm sorry." You pushed him back slightly and looked at him with a confused look. "For what?" "I feel like I've failed you... I just want you to know that you are loved and such an amazing girl. I wish I could have been there to help you when you were having those thoughts and doing this to yourself... Promise me that whenever you are thinking of doing it draw a line with a marker and come see me or call or whatever I will always reply and be there for you. You've helped me with so much now it's my time to help you when you need me the most." You ignored the lump that was in the back of your throat and hugged him tight, smiling into his chest.
  • A/N: So, I thought to write this because, well, I know a lot of people go through things like this. I can't exactly relate to what some people go through or what goes through their minds, but I honestly want you all to know if you EVER are feeling down you can send me an ask, we can talk there or if you have imessage we can talk there. I just want you guys to know that I am here for you for anything you need to talk about because this topic is a very sensitive thing for me knowing that people I care about - even people I barely know - hurt themselves. You're honestly all beautiful and please never listen to when others disagree. Words do hurt, I know just how much they can, but when you feel the need try to draw a line with a marker on wherever you were planning on hurting yourself, or even come talk to me. I can't promise you I will always make everythin better, but I will try my hardest to make you at least smile. I don't know I'm basically rambling now but I just get sad when I hear about this topic. And remember the boys love you all so much and appreciate everything we do for them and yep okay I guess I'm done with this. I love you all okay?

Ok, so let me break your ass down real quick, because I wasn’t going to answer your ignorance, but then I found out that you had sent some corresponding bullshit to my best friend, and now I’m about to use your raggedy ass like a dust mop.

First the fuck of all, you want to come into my ask box slinging racist, white supremacist bullshit, then I require you to take an English course before I even entertain the idea of taking you seriously. I mean, I can actually hear the fucking backwoods accent in the atrocious excuse for English in your message.

Second, I know full well that @just-call-me-mrs-captain is nice and witty and funny and kind. That’s why she’s my best fucking friend. You don’t like it? Tough shit. Who in the ever loving fuck do you think you are to walk your tacky ass through my ask boxes and presume to tell me who I can and cannot be friends with? The last time I checked I was an adult with bills, children, and a functioning mind, and I don’t needs some racist, ignorant, uneducated, dumbass to worry about what the fuck I do. Worry about yourself, as you clearly have a plethora of problems you need to work on before you start passing out fucking advice.

As far as me being dirty? Bitch I shower daily, which from the tone of your message is probably more than you can say. You can’t be friends with her because she’s friends with me? Fucking good, I’m 100% sure she wants nothing to do with a dickwad the likes of you, you sick, stupid, disgusting excuse for a reason to breathe oxygen. You should go find your nearest tree and apologize to it for ceaselessly providing you with air you do not deserve. Also, if I’m so dirty and you’re so clean, what the fuck are you doing in my askbox? Why the fuck are you talking to me? Why the fuck are you stalking our pages (Which you had to have done to know about how close we are). This sounds so much more like an obsession, and so much less like superiority, and in that case, I am so fucking flattered that you, such a clean and pure white person such as yourself saw fit to be obsessed with lil ol’ me.

So, no. I will not be “backing off” and honestly I’m more disgusted that you though you could speak for her on the subject of our friendship than your blatantly obvious ploy for attention by way of racism.

Welp, I’m done here. But you know what they say, all’s well that ends ok. so I’ll end this rant with a fuck you, but also, have a nice day. :)

Swan Queen - One shot.

It was the howling wind that finally made her get out of bed. As she approached the closed window, a frown appeared on her face.


Her eyes closed as she focused. Focused on the voice that whispered her name so softly it was barely audible.


Taking a deep breath, she channeled all her magic on the person who was calling out for her. She could feel the magic travel through her body; the hairs on her back that seemed to respond to the chill of the wind, the goosebumps on her arms that almost displayed a map to where she needed to be, the heartbeat that started to beat faster underneath the skin that felt warm to the touch, and finally the image came to her.


She slowly raised her arms, as if they could wipe away the blur of the image behind her eyes. Her brows furrowed as she concentrated on the picture. Darkness surrounded her. She shuddered as a chill ran down her spine, the howling wind now in direct contact with her.

Help me.

Taking slow and steady breaths, she guided all her magic as it took her away from her bedroom, not knowing where she would end up. When her feet touched the cold ground, she knew in an instant.


Her eyes opened and she stumbled back at the vision that unfolded before her eyes. As her eyes adjusted to the darkness, she looked at the pale woman on the ground before her. Blond hair now nearly red as blood trickled from a head wound, hands that tried to reach out for her, and her name being called over and over, yet Emma’s lips didn’t move.

She crouched down to her knees, placed a hand on Emma’s head and started whispering the words Maleficent had once taught her. It took everything she had, every last ounce of energy went into healing the woman in front of her: her enemy, her son’s other mother, the woman who had brought to life feelings Regina had sworn never to feel again.

One hand moved underneath Emma’s head, an arm under her legs, softly shushing the soft moans of pain that fell from Emma’s lips. Her eyes closed once more. She had no strength left to bring Emma home so she whispered a name. The one person who could help her, the one person who wouldn’t judge.


Her lips curled up in the smallest of smiles as she felt Maleficent’s magic reaching out for her and when her eyes opened, she stood in Maleficent’s house, Emma still in her arms. With a flick of her wrist, Maleficent had taken Emma from her and laid her down on the couch.

“What happened?”

“I don’t know. I heard her call out for me, but she’s unconscious.”

She averted her eyes when Maleficent stepped closer to her. A finger gently lifted up her chin as their eyes met.

“How long?”

There was no judgment in Maleficent’s voice, how could there have been? Regina shook her head. “I can’t…she can never know.”

Maleficent nodded. “I will heal her. You did good, Regina. I will make sure she makes it home safely.”

“You can't–”

“I won’t,” Maleficent reassured. “Go home, Regina. She’s safe now.”

Regina nodded and raised her arms once more. As she crawled back into bed, a tear fell from her eyes. She quickly wiped it away. Not wanting to think about why she could hear Emma’s thoughts, she curled up in bed and pulled the covers tighter around her. As sleep claimed her, four words branded themselves into her skin, words that no longer could be erased, ignored or forgotten. No amount of bickering, fighting and annoyance could replace the feelings that she had tried so hard to fight.

I love you Emma.

Had she not been asleep, dreaming of a world where they could be together, she would have heard four words whispered back to her. 

“I love you too.”
