Here's my own forum for stories I write. I love writing, but I get kinda lazy sometimes. Expect a slow trickle :P It'll be a mish-mash of short stories I write. Some will be parts of an overall story, similar to chapters, and some will not. I'll try and note what page each part of a story is on and stuff. Now, the first one, that I wrote back in eighth grade. Very random and kind of odd. I didn't write it to be accurate, but to be silly and have fun.  Xp Starts out seeming very morbid, but trust me. It's not actual stuff. Note: It's not my best writing, though. I've improved. *** The dragon destroyed the entire village. Fires burned everywhere. Dead bodies laid on the ground to rot and appease the hunger of animals. Only one person--I mean two--were still standing; Khedra and Sammich. Trembling, Sammich stared at the horrendous beast. Khedra, brushing sand out of her bronzed face, spun, looking for it. "Sammich, where is it?! Tell me now or I'll slap you!" she shouted. "O-over there," Sammich said, pointing. "Where is there?! I CAN'T SEE IT, YOU DERANGED DONKEY!" Khedra yelled. "Open your eyes, woman!" She opened her eyes. Seeing the dragon, she grabbed her curved blades from the sand at her feet. "Don't just stand there, Sammich, fight it!" Khedra exclaimed, right in his ear. "But I don't have a weapon!" Sammich replied. "Because you're not scary!" "You said I'm not scary?!" Sammich bellowed. His English accent made Khedra's cheeks puff up with suppressed laughter. "Don't you laugh at me!" he continued, stomping over to the dragon, who was staring him down as a father does a disobedient son. Sammich grabbed one of the dragon's legs and started yanking on it, without effect. He looked like a savage, screaming his head off in a long battle cry. The dragon snorted, lifted its leg, shook Sammich off, and flew away as Sammich landed with a miniature mushroom cloud of sand and a loud POOF! The dragon clearly believed the young man wasn't worth his time. Chuckling, Khedra sheathed her curved blades while striding to Sammich, lying, frustrated, in the sand. She stuck out a hand, offering help to her friend. Sammich, scowling, with an adorable pout, took her hand and allowed her to pull him up. "We got rid of the dragon, everyone! You can stop hiding, now!" Khedra announced. The villagers disguised as rotting and torn bodies picked themselves up. The mage nearby let the illusion of fire fade from the houses, and stepped out from one of the buildings. "Bye, peoples!" Sammich called, shaking sand out of his tousled, chestnut hair. Khedra and Sammich ran off into the desert, towards the Oasis. *** I'm working on another one, now, so I'll at least post the fragment I have done tomorrow. This one I'm posting tomorrow will be better XD

However, when you become pregnant, you know theres a CHANCE you COULD get pregnant, if you don't want to, use protection. People know the consequences with doing the "dirty", so if you think youre mature enough to do it, you can be mature enough to be a mom. And if you don't think you want to be a mom, theres adoption. Theres too many people who cant have babies for unknown reasons, I think that if you abort a baby, youre just throwing a smack in the face to those who cant have children.
