TnB: Bunny of the Sea 4Chapter 4
As it turned out the merman, or Bunny as Kotetsu had taken to calling him, despite the disapproval of Karina, liked all sorts of fish. It was the dead, frozen presentation of it that had Bunny turning up his nose at it. They discovered this when Kotetsu thought it would be nice to put a goldfish into the tank to keep Bunny company and Bunny all but immediately ate it.
The fish they had been storing went to the other animals of the zoo and much of the refrigerators were replaced by smaller tanks of live fish for Bunny's meals. Typically they would put in two fish at a time and Bunny would eat one, saving the other to hunt down later. And soon enough they learned if Bunny didn't eat any of the fish at breakfast or lunch that he was silently demanding sushi.
Kotetsu got sushi making tips from Anju and though his rolls were never as well put together as his mother's it didn't seem to stop Barnaby from enjoying them. So far salmon still seemed to be his favorite but he also ate th
TnB: Bunny of the Sea 3Chapter 3
Kotetsu's daughter, Kaede, was not happy with him about his new job. Or rather about the living situation that came with his job. He tried to reason and explain it to her without telling her about the merman, he had signed a contract saying he couldn't tell anyone, but she only yelled at him and then turned to an even worse tactic; ignoring him.
Though his mother, Anju, said she understood Kotetsu didn't believe her. She kept talking about other jobs that he'd already been rejected for that he could make another attempt at. He suspected she was also the one unpacking his things when he wasn't looking since Kaede had taken to her room besides for meals.
The night before he would move over to his room next to the merman's tank Kotetsu sat outside Kaede's room and apologized, talking to her late into the night even though she never responded. In the morning, despite the fact that she tripped over him after he had fallen asleep there, she still hugged him goodbye when he left wit
TnB: Bunny of the Sea 2Chapter 2
"A merman actually," Lloyds corrected, tugging on the back of Kotetsu's vest to pull him away from the glass.
"But," Kotetsu wanted to stare Lloyds down for answers but he couldn't tare his eyes away from the creature that should not exist but clearly did. His brain was being uncooperative and could only form one question; "How?"
"A fishing vessel found him in their nets after they got to port, the poor thing was only half in water the whole time and was seriously dehydrated," Lloyds didn't sound that concerned. "They don't know where they picked him up from and he doesn't seem to speak any human languages. There was, of course, a bidding war but our owner, Mr. Maverick, won in the end and brought him here."
Though he was listening Kotetsu was still staring at the merman. He owned a fish when he was a kid and remembered its scales being shiny. This merman's tail looked dull and though Kotetsy didn't know the norms for a merman this merman's human torso looked underweight, ski
TnB: Bunny of the Sea 1Chapter 1
Kotetsu looked at the address in his hand and turned in circles several times until he spotted the statue of the roaring winged lion and headed for it. This would be Kotetsu's third job interview this morning and hopefully it would be the one to go right; his former coworker and friend Ben had even recommended him for this one so that had to mean something.
Finally finding the entrance it took Kotetsu by surprise when he found Apollon Park was actually a zoo. Why would a zoo need a live in security guard?
Still a job was a job at that point and he should learn the details of it before he dismissed it. He went in and had to sign several papers before they would even interview him. The confidentiality agreement was particularly puzzling but he would find out soon enough.
It was a man with gray high, slightly lighter on top then it was the sides, in a suit that looked more like an executive then the manager of a zoo that came out to interview him. Right off the bat the interview
Rumbelle WeekDay 1: Magic
She had wanted to let in sunlight.
Rumpelstiltskin had allowed the silly notion, if only to keep her from falling off the ladder again. But as the days went by he started to reconsider, his house, hardly a home, was far too warm now and especially too bright. There was a reason he covered the windows to begin with you know.
Then Belle came in carrying the tray of afternoon tea. There was nothing special about this and yet there was.
Each time Belle walked in front of one of the windows she simply shimmered, more beautifully then the day he took her from her home as she wore her golden dress. Her hair shined far more radiant then the thread of gold between his fingers. As if these things weren't enough her smile, directed at him of all things, along with her eyes, so warm and open with her feelings, sparkled as she announced it was time for him to take a break and join her for tea.
Darkness had surrounded Rumpelstiltskin for so long he had forgotten the magic of sunl
TnB: Good Night KissesAfter the fight with Jake something changed, or rather Barnaby changed. He felt calmer, the world seemed brighter and Kotetsu wasn't nearly as annoying as he used to be.
It was foreign, yet exhilarating to call his partner by name. The new found information was especially fun at the beginning when Kotetsu was still getting used to Barnaby using his name. At first the old man would need a moment to realize that Barnaby was actually talking to him, then he would blush and grin before responding to whatever Barnaby had just said, sometimes needing Barnaby to repeat himself since he stopped listening at the mention of his name. No matter how many times it happened Barnaby couldn't find it in himself to be annoyed, instead he found himself finding it endearing of all things.
Soon Barnaby found himself actually enjoying spending time with his partner. He would actually welcome opportunities to spend time with him outside their forced partnership that didn't feel so forced anymore. Some night
Dreams of realityA pair of eyes;
Open and stare through the lights,
Into the darkness of doom.
And yet they smile,
Yet they smile.
A drop of tear;
Seeps through the garden of death;
Falls to the mortal soil.
Dreams and desires will blend again,
To render the roses alive.
I am floating through a vision.
Like ripples, floating through the pond of life.
Can reality be so real?
Let me drown again,
Into the silence of familiar noise.
As I wander through the lanes of reason and passion.
The flame of hope burns bright,
Drenched in the colors of freedom.
So let my dreams unravel my soul,
As darkness fades away;
And let mortality draw me closer to destiny.
As these pair of eyes,
Open to stare through the lights again.
Is this reality?
Can reality be so real?
Time passes by, as the eyes keep staring;
Staring at the distant lights;
Staring beyond the distant skies.
What do they see?
What do they long?
What do they desire?
Then the skies will break down;
White lightning striking the dreamy clouds.
Moments will tur
PetalsThe grass tickled between her toes as her father toiled away with the roses by the letterbox. She watched his fingers weave between the thorns to pat the soil around each bush, humming to some John Lennon song she couldn't put a name to. Despite the sun just tipping the horizon, she saw sweat prickling his brow and his eyes squinting against the light. The fine lines on his face were suddenly accentuated by shadow, and for a moment, she swelled with wonder.
'Maria, come here,' he said, waving her over. 'You're not going to learn anything sitting all the way over there.'
Excitement sparked her limbs into motion, and she crawled over to sit next to him, careful to tuck her skirt beneath her thighs to avoid the dirt.
He picked up a pair of clippers from beside him. 'Now, you need to snipe back these diseased parts here and there from the base of the plant. It helps it grow better.'
Snipping off two pieces of wood with ease, he deposited them in Maria's outstretched hand. Their rough textu
