with the face and the hand and the rings the rings


Uproarious cheers and applause echoed powerfully through the stadium upon bearing witness to the siblings’ victory. Alyx put on a smirk and waved off the audience while wiping off a few beads of sweat, while Oriel raised a flattered and somewhat sheepish smile as she raised her hand to the crowd in gratitude. Once they had their fill of the spotlight and praise, the two of them made their way out of the ring and towards the exit back into the main lobby ring.

“Whew… great job out there sis, you never let me down,” thanked the Gallade as he lightly shoulder-hugged his Gardevoir sister.

“Ah, n-neither do you, brother…” smiled Oriel, pushing a lock of hair out of her face before clearing her throat. “W-well, I suppose we should rendezvous with Lixue and Masou, they’ll be expecting us out here soon while the next battle is underway… I’m feeling sort of famished, admittedly…”

“Heh, I know what ya mean, I never saw those Pokemon before. They really kept us on our toes… no pun intended,” chuckled Alyx with a roll of his eyes. “C'mon, let’s go meet up with them and see if we can get a bite to eat.”

Monday 8:27am
I woke up with you on my mind.
You called me babe last night —
my heart is still pounding.

Tuesday 10:53pm
Today I realized we won’t work.
What we are is hurting her.
And I think she matters more to me than you do.

Wednesday 11:52pm
I broke things off with you today.
She barely said a word.
I’ve never regretted anything more than this.

Thursday 4:03pm
I shouldn’t have sent that message.
You shouldn’t have been so okay with receiving it.

Friday 9:57pm
I almost messaged you today.
I didn’t.

Saturday 8:49pm
I’m walking around town in search of alcohol.
They say that liquor numbs the pain of having a broken heart.
I want to put that to the test.

Sunday 2:32am
I heard you texted a girl you’ve never spoken to before.
I wonder if it’s because you’re trying to replace me.
I can’t help but wish you weren’t.
I thought I was irreplaceable.

—  a week with you on my mind, c.j.n.
Move on, leave, run away, escape this place… but don’t forget about me, about us, about this town. Always remember where you come from so you can appreciate how far you’ve come.

We throw around the word never likes its nothing but a small rose petal. The word never is a doubled edged sword. On one side it says ‘I will never leave you’ and on the other it says ‘I will never love you.’
—  The Word Never
You claim to love her, inside and out, but the only time you call her beautiful is when it’s 3 in the morning and I’ve already turned you down.
