An apology and A short story

Sorry guys. I have been busy, so the chapters won’t be posted today. They will appear next week definitely and if you guys visit from Tuesday to Friday, you might notice more updates that you guys might enjoy. For now here is a short story I wrote a long time ago. I hope you guys like it.

Forest Beat

Years past me like the wind and yet I never age. My father did something to my body that prevents me from aging. What my father did to me, I cannot explain, but I know that it happened over a thousand years ago. I am nothing but a monster in people’s eyes, so I remain in the forest where no one can ever see me. I never eat or sleep, so how am I still alive?

A storm is approaching. I remain under a tree as the rain beats down in my forest. I hear something in the distance. Someone is crying. I walk through the mud toward the voice. I see a man crying over a dead boy. The man saw me and begs me to help the boy. I can do nothing, except offer a flower. I leave hoping not to see him again.

I return three days later to where the dead boy should be. I see the same man placing flowers on the boy’s grave. He sees me and beckons me to come. I leave without a second thought.

I return two days later to where the grave should be. I see the man again with bread and water in his grasp. He offers me a piece of his bread. I leave once again.

I return after a day to where the smell of bread should be. I see the man just standing with a bottle of water. He offers me a drink. I leave again.

On a snowy day, I return to the place with spring water. I see the man in a thick coat with a blanket in his hand. He wraps me with the blanket and this time I remain. We talk and he laughs. I haven’t felt the warmth from a man for so long.

On a day when the sun was up, I return to the man. He gives me a flower and a kiss on my lips. I feel a warmness that I have never felt before. The man leaves and never comes back.

I wait next to the grave for fifty years with thoughts of the man hoping for his return.

Another fifty years and I am still waiting.

On a rainy day, I hear a cry near the grave. I walk through the mud toward the voice. I see a boy crying next to the grave. The boy sees me and begs me to protect him. I offer a flower and this time, I stayed.

The man broke my heart and yet he still left me with a gift in the form of a boy. My love in the forest is eternal.

The End

Ranking for cuteness

Manga Hunter here! I am still working on some needed chapters and on real life, but just for fun (and to prevent me from going insane) I created a ranking for cuteness from light novels, manga, and anime. These are based on my own opinions, so if you disagree or feel like I should have added someone else, then please comment (really…please comment).

Note: Pictures were not included, since I don’t want to take the chance of being sued.

P. S.

If you guys are wondering why  didn’t include Pokémon and Digimon in the list of cute animals, it is because the list would be too long, since I squeal in delight for almost every Pokémon and Digimon.

Friday stories updated

Manga Hunter here! I am actually quite busy, but I am still working hard on the stories, especially on the ones that are on hiatus for now. I am placing the chapters for today, so please enjoy them.

 

I’m the Villainous’ Little Sister who doesn’t even matter, so don’t give me a disaster flag too!

Precious Stone

Chapter 53: The Priestess’ Vision

 

Friday Story updates

Manga Hunter here with story updates for today. I hope you guys enjoy them, even though they are kind of short. To be honest, I wanted the Little Sister one to be longer, but I kind of fell in the middle of the stairs because of extreme cramps (need more potassium), so I was stuck on the stairs until the pain went away (with my cat comforting me) and thus cutting my writing time short. The main point is that I have something at least, so please enjoy.

Note: My legs are still in pain.

I’m the Villainous’ Little Sister who doesn’t even matter, so don’t give me a disaster flag too!

Chapter 66: This is My Dorm room…BULLIES!

Precious Stone

Chapter 51: Red Haired Mermaid

Random Babble: Fun Center Children Misunderstandings

Manga Hunter here! This isn’t a story update, since I am still writing the chapters when I have the time. Instead, I just thought I should write some randomness like when I told you guys about my thought process when it comes to escalator and elevators, so at least I have some new content for today.

This time it is a time when I was dealing with children in a Fun Center I used to work in. I won’t tell the name of the place, but just know that it is a Fun Center. In this Fun Center was a jungle gym that I supervised when I was scheduled to work. Lots of children came to this attraction and would talk to me once in a while. I didn’t know how to deal with children than, so I said some stuff I didn’t know they would not understand.

Take this one time with a small girl. She was playing in the jungle gym and then asked me if the water fountain near the bathroom had water.

Me: Oh yes, there is just good old H2O in there.

The little girl just nodded at me, but when her mother went to get a drink from the water fountain, she grabbed her mother’s arm with a panicked expression and exclaimed, “NO, NO, NO there is H2O in there!”

Her mother and I were laughing. That’s when I learned not to use chemical terms with a child. It sounds like a poison apparently.

Another child I dealt with asked when the jungle gym closed.

Me: The whole place will close when the lights are out.

When the sun began to go down, I tried to help the child to the second floor of the jungle gym, but then he tried to run back down as he exclaimed, “The stairs are going to close!” Imagine Indiana Jones running from the boulder here.

I guess my statement made the mistaken assumption that the stairs turns into a monster’s mouth that closes when the sun goes down. I guess I should have been more specific.

I deal a little better with children now after I left the Fun Center. The lesson here: Be careful what you say to children.

Chances are that you guys don’t read this, but please know that I am writing these stories to the best of my ability and hoping to update on time.

Years later, when Eiji sees her again, he is overcome with guilt and regret. To his surprise, a mysterious scantily-clad woman suddenly appears, claiming she can send him back in time to make everything right! He takes her up on the offer, but things are not as simple as they may have seemed back then.
