Crossroad - Chapter 1Some little voice in the back of his head was urging him to get up, even before the onslaught of cold in his bones or the forlorn howling of wind between the cliffs met his senses. A groan escaped the lips of the young man as he stirred, internally wincing as the metal port on his leg viciously stung his nerves.Crossroad - Chapter 1 by BambooFoxFire
When he first tried to get up, his body didn’t want to move, but with enough stubborn effort he managed to push himself up from beneath a pile of snow, a torrent of wind battering his skin and making him squint golden eyes with a disgruntled scowl.
Everything was a mix of offending white flakes blazing over dark sky, obviously nightfall. Ice-caked cliffs towered high above, and a tree bent under the weight of snow creaked with strain nearby.
A draft through the folds of his hooded coat made the teen shiver involuntarily and clutch the fabric closer around himself. Just where the Hell was he? He certainly knew he wouldn’t have been dumb enough to take a nap in the sn

“Hey, don’t look so down in the dumps, they’re no worse than I am you know,” he assured. “I’ve been working a lot of days without even going home. I need a break, that’s all.”
Faulklin didn’t reply, single hue averted.
Mamoru sighed slightly through his nose, giving the kid a look of sympathy and kneeling in front of him.
“I promise you’ll be perfectly safe here, Faulklin. Have I yet lied to you?”
“That’s the thing about lies,” Faulklin murmured despondently, looking elsewhere. “You don’t always know they’re there.”
"Most writers fall at least somewhat short of certifiably insane when not writing."
"Over the years I've learned to value people for their knowledge and experience, rather than their looks. Because looks come by their selves. You either are lucky enough to inherit a good looking pair of genes, or you are not. Experience, on the other hand, is something people work their asses off for. Something that takes effort, and deserves respect."
"Funny thing is, we cynics behind our thick crusts of distrust, sarcasm, and all around pessimism are probably some of the happiest people around. All the idealist, attention whores, extroverts, et cetera... They all live thinking they're hot shit and everything is all well and nice, but then when shit happens they slip into depression not wanting to believe how people are so scornful and hateful, yet at the same time trying to convince themselves there's some good, but not us. No, from the beginning we know people are generally shit, and we spend years knowing that, and in the end we could not give two fucks about it and therefore manage to avoid the realization depression all these once-happy pricks inevitably realize.

"I had a thought, but it got lonely and went away."
"Sorry, my trains of thought derailed. There were no survivors."
"Forgive those who have hurt you. – I forgive people, but that doesn’t mean I trust them. I just don’t have time to hate people who hurt me, because I’m too busy loving people who love me. The first to apologize is the bravest. The first to forgive is the strongest. The first to move forward is the happiest. Be brave. Be strong. Be happy. Be free."
"Be who you really are. – If you’re lucky enough to have something that makes you different from everybody else, don’t change. Uniqueness is priceless. In this crazy world that’s trying to make you like everyone else, find the courage to keep being your awesome self. And when they laugh at you for being different, laugh back at them for being the same. It takes a lot of courage to stand alone, but it’s worth it. Being YOU is worth it!"
"Recognize those who love you. – The most memorable people in your life will be the ones who loved you when you weren’t very loveable. Pay attention to who these people are in your life, and love them back, even when they aren’t acting loveable."
"Be thankful for all the troubles you don’t have. – There are two ways of being rich: One is to have all you want, the other is to be satisfied with what you have. Accept and appreciate things now, and you’ll find more happiness in every moment you live. Happiness comes when we stop complaining about the troubles we have and offer thanks for all the troubles we don’t have. And remember, you have to fight through some bad days to earn the best days of your life."
"Enjoy the little things in life. – The best things in life are free. There is absolute joy and wonder to be had in the simplest of moments. Watching the sunset over the horizon or spending time with a family member. Enjoy the little things, because one day you may look back and discover they were the big things."
