The moon was high in the middle of the sky and Brigid was grumbling breathlessly about the blisters on her feet. "That's what you get for wearing those stupid standard issue things on your feet," Levi murmured. Brigid huffed as they made their way back to the sleeping quarters. She looked as if she were about to fall out.

        "H-how are your feet not bleeding? You're not even wearing shoes!" she cried.

        "Stop speaking so loudly," he said in reply, unconsciously looking down at his bare feet. They were a bit pink but it was quickly fading.

        "You ran more laps than Gideon and me combined across a stone courtyard. Your feet should be bloody stubs by now!" she continued just as loudly as she had been before. Levi whipped around just as they were about to enter the barracks and he grabbed her small face between his right thumb and first finger.

        "Be quiet," he hissed, his livid green eyes glinting in the moonlight and stabbing straight into Brigid's bright blue ones. She looked afraid and it sent chills up his spine.

        "Levi," Gideon warned, his voice sounding weary. Levi wrenched away from Brigid and spun around the back of his hand slamming into Gideon's face and knocking him to the ground.

        "Don't call me that!" he snarled but Gideon seemed to be unconscious and therefore not listening. Brigid stared at Gideon and then her gaze went back to Levi.

        "You knocked him out," she said.

        "You're very observant," he retorted sarcastically before walking into the barracks, nearly stepping on Gideon's face in the process. Brigid stooped by Gideon and tapped her fingers against his cheek. He barely stirred. "Leave him," Levi said over his shoulder. She looked up at him and whispered, "We can't just leave him! He'll get in trouble." Levi turned to look at her with a sigh and he said, "He's already in trouble. Perhaps if Lady Morrigan finds him collapsed in the doorway, she'll drop him from the Elites altogether and bugger all this fasting shite." Brigid stared at him and he thought he saw the slightest flicker of anger behind her normally gentle eyes.

        "But he didn't collapse, you dropped him," she said as if it were such a heinous crime. Levi sighed and rubbed his forehead along the tops of his eyebrows.

        "Yeah, well no one will know that unless you tell," he said a silent threat seeming to perforate his words.

        "You mean lie?" Brigid asked like the very thought was poisoning her. Levi turned away from her and muttered, "Wow, you are observant." He left her kneeling beside Gideon and he found his way to the 11-12 sleeping quarters.

        There was row after row of cots resting on the creaking wooden floor. One body rested in each, either an eleven or a twelve year old boy, each fast asleep with a lumpy pillow under their head and a thread bare blanket covering their bodies. Some shivered in their sleep or spoke or cried; most sported cuts or bruises or lash marks, but each was too tired to let the pain keep them awake. The sleeping quarters were first divided by age; co-ed until you passed age ten and then, once you turned eleven you were divided both by age and gender.

        Levi didn't bother going to the bath house for he didn't really...stink as much as the other students. That was truthfully the best reason for why he didn't bathe as often as the other students seemed to. All the children smelled awful to Levi even after they were scrubbed with lavender and lye. Levi found his cot, eleventh row back from the door and the fourth column from the far left side of the room, and he sat down on top of the blanket.

        His feet were flat on the wooden floor, his knees bent at right angles, his elbows digging into the tops of his thighs and his chin resting in his hands. He had to be up at sunset to tend to the garden, but he was restless. He shouldn't be, he should be tired...he had run at least thirty kilometers, perhaps more, he had lost count after the first two hours. He found that he often had to work three times a hard and do three times as much as the others to even start to feel the weariness in his muscles. He laid back on top of the blanketed cot and stared up at the ceiling. Sleep, he told himself but his body wouldn't listen. He could hear every person in the room, their breathing sounded unbearably loud in his ears and he wanted them to stop. The heat of nearly forty children was suffocating him. He squeezed his eyes shut and gripped the wooden frame of the cot. He wished everyone would just be quiet; he could hear their breath, their quiet moaning and snoring, their hearts beating, their nightmares raging...

They nodded and accepted the carefully painted lies
They never even knew the terror in her eyes
They told her to ignore the monster underneath her bed
They never even knew the horror in her head.

They never even knew what the bowl of tacks were for
or why she put the lock on the outside of her door.
They never even knew the demons that she hid
it was just a phase, she was just a kid.

How could anybody blame them for what they never knew?
They listened and the cried and they screamed and hugged her too.
The forever never knowing and they don't understand
why their dear dumb daughter is stuck in wonderland.
All the people in this class think that this task is really hard because you have to think; thinking in school? My, what a shock!
Beautiful thing, thinking; I wrote a monologue Freshman year about how thinking was my passion and there were thoughts constantly buzzing in my head.
Calamitous most of those thoughts were, colliding in waves of intensity that were almost palpable in the air.
Daring was it to get up on stage after weeks of writing and discarding monologue after pointless monologue finally coming to rest on one when I only had a week to memorize it and moments to think of blocking on the spot.
Effortless is how I made it seem; I've always been better at coming up with things on the spot than carefully planning out each move.
Frivolous and superfluous my motions were; the character I made for myself in that performance was twitchy and constantly pacing like she was paranoid and sleep deprived.
Going on and on about how people would ask her what she was doing or what was wrong when they found her staring idly into space.
Hello! I'm busy! Can't you see I'm thinking?
Ignorant were those who thought she was a few plums short of a fruit pie.
Just thinking; no, nothing is wrong, go away, I'm busy.
Killing time thinking about so many things that most people don't consider
meriting thought.
Lost in her head so deep she can just barely make it to the surface before her lungs burst.
Many don't consider thinking a past time, but it most certainly is.
None do it so well as she, that character I used once and then shut away in a drawer in the back of my mind for safe keeping.
Only I could come up with something so different; while others said their passion was music or writing or acting, I said thinking.
Priceless were the looks on their faces staring up at this flustering yet eloquent creature.
Quietly she ascends the stairs to center stage and then looks out at the small audience.
Racing was her heart and trembling her legs, she was fighting to keep her knees from knocking together.
She paced to mask her nervousness and the teacher said it worked for the character.
Totally out of place up on stage; she was an observer not an entertainer.
Usually she hides in the corner and watches everyone else's life play out and then silently comments in her head without saying a word.
Vexed and annoyed by the interruptions she wished everyone would just leave her be.
Wishing gets you nowhere though so why bother?
Xena: Warrior Princess says action is the only solution to a problem.
You have to take charge and make things happen in addition to your wishing.
Zeal and enthusiasm are not enough to get the job done!
The Alphabet Task
So in the tenth grade, in my English class, we had to write an essay of sort starting each sentence with the next letter of the alphabet and this is what I came up with. Feel free to do this, yourself, it is quite fun.
