Shadows on the Wall

Growing up, I was convinced I’d be abducted by aliens. I lived in constant, sleep-deprived fear as every strange shadow and every reflection of light on the wall signified the beginning of what I knew would be my end. Logic told me the shadows were just piles of dirty clothes or my coat rack; that the reflections were just from passing cars on the street below. But logic fails in the face of terror. If it weren’t for my older brother, Jason, with whom I shared the bedroom, there was a very real chance I would’ve lost my mind.

I remember my 13th birthday with the same detached sense of helpless violation as a victim of sexual assault. The day itself had been fine. Pleasant, even. My parents, who were always caring and supportive, did their best to make sure my birthday was enjoyable. They knew I was stressed. They knew I was anxious. I’d never told them why, though. Only Jason knew, and he promised to keep it a secret.

After the festivities, I went up to my room to play video games. I had two hours to play before lights-out. Jason sat on his immaculately-made bed, which was in stark contrast to my messy one, and watched, offering pointers as I died over and over.

Two hours went by quickly, and Dad came in to say it was time to go to sleep. He sat next to Jason on the bed and let me know he was proud of me; how I’d been brave despite having a hard time and that things would get better. He wished me a happy birthday and kissed me goodnight, switching off the light on his way out of the room.

Medicated (Blurb)

When you’re doing blurbs, can you do one where the girl gets her wisdom teeth out and is acting all crazy and Harry takes care of her? :)


“Harry, are you SURE Ellen isn’t here?”

Harry laughed as he carefully helped you from the car, supporting your weight with his own and making sure you didn’t topple to the ground.

“M’sure, my love. But I can call her, if you really want to see her.”

“She should be here,” you continued, earnestly, “I’d probably make a really good show right now.”

“Why, because you’re loopy?”

You nodded, stumbling a bit as you reached the stairs which caused Harry to tighten his grip.

“Easy there, love. Don’t want to be goin’ face first into the ground and need to go back to the dentist.”

He managed to finally get you inside and led you over to the couch so you could sit down. He went to work pulling your boots and coat off as you stared at him. He finally looked up and saw your expression.

“What’s wrong? Are you in pain?”

You paused, tilting your head to the side before reaching out slowly to run your fingers through his hair.

“You’re really pretty.”

Harry let out a snort and stood up, pressing a kiss to the top of your head.

“Thank you, baby. So are you.” He grabbed a blanket that was sitting on the back of the couch and draped it over you. “Alright, m’goin’ to get your medication ready and I’ll bring you some water, okay?”

You nodded, reaching your hand up to your face and poking your cheek.

“Hey, hey, no poking!” Harry said, grabbing your hand away and bringing it to his lips, “You don’t want to mess up the stitches or anything.”

“But I can’t feel my face!” you protested.

“Well then, you don’t need to touch it, do you?” he replied, giving you a smirk, “Trust me, you’ll be able to feel it in a few hours and then you’ll wish you couldn’t.”

You gave him a pout, which looked rather ridiculous with your bandaged mouth. Harry left to go to the kitchen and returned with a cup full of water and some pills. It took you a few seconds to figure out the best way to swallow everything without being able to feel your face but you managed to get everything down.

“Can I get you anythin’ else?” Harry asked, smoothing his hand through your hair.

“Can you stay?” you whined, reaching out your arms for him, “I want a snuggle.”

There was no way Harry could possibly resist, especially seeing how pouty and miserable you looked. He remember well what it felt like when he had gotten his wisdom teeth out and he had needed a lot of extra love that first day as well.

“Alright, scooch over,” he said, carefully crawling on to the couch beside you. He got himself situated so you could rest your head on his chest and wrapped an arm around your shoulder. “Comfy?”


“Good. Try and get some sleep, m’love.”

You peered up at him, giving him a soft look that nearly melted his heart.

“Thanks for taking care of me, Harry. I love you.”

Harry kissed your forehead and pulled you closer.

“I love you too, baby.”

You may have been loopy, but you meant every word.

(season 2 verse) Regina pulled her Benz up to the school and inhaled as if stealing herself to do something. The kids had let out but the staff were still there finishing up their day. She got out from the car and pulled two duffle bags from her trunk. She walked into Snow's otherwise empty classroom without knocking and placed them on the floor next to desk. "Clothes for Henry and some of his things from home." This was almost as painful as facing execution. --OFEQ

The sound of her heels against the floor announced Regina way before she entered the classroom. Her not knocking wasn’t a surprise, she had always entered every place Snow was in uninvited. What surprised Snow was however, that Regina wasn’t here driven by her hatred and that she hadn’t come to threaten her; she was here for Henry.

“Thank you, Regina. I’m sure Henry will appreciate not sleeping in Charming’s pajamas anymore.”

Snow took the bags and placed them behind her chair. She was hoping that was all, but Regina remained in her place and Snow was starting to feel the tension.
