tJfaJ: Chapter 24When I woke up, it was the middle of the night. Somehow, we had slept through the entire afternoon. I was still in Dimentio's room, the jester sleeping soundly beside me. I noticed one of his arms hung limply around my waist, and I couldn't help smiling at it.
I turned over and snuggled a little closer to Dimentio while he slept. I blinked in surprise, realizing he didn't smile when he was asleep. I'd seen him frown once or twice, but I was under the impression he couldn't help but smile. Still, he did look peaceful. He really must have been exhaustedI'd never seen him quite like this.
I felt sorry for him, so I let him continue sleeping while I looked around the room. Everything was darkit was the middle of the night, after allbut the objects themselves were very dark in color. He didn't seem to have strayed much from the room's original designall black with white trim. Every now and again, there would be a flash of color. Occasionally, an article of his clothi
tJfaJ: Chapter 23"I wonder why the sky's blue " I asked aloud to the empty hallway.
I heard the demon shift within my mind, giving a heavy groan of frustration at my intense boredom interrupting her nap once again. "The sky is not blue, you ignorant twit " she hissed irritably. "The sky is purple."
I sighed, folding my arms on the window I sat at, staring out in to the void that hung over and around Castle Bleck. " yeah but everywhere else, it's blue."
"Because some perfectly horrid higher being decided it was an appropriately atrocious color for the sky of an awful world." My demon seethed. "Let me rest, girl."
I gave a short, sharp breath. "I'm just talking to myself. You don't have to answer me."
She growled loudly. "It is incredibly difficult to obtain decent peace with you constantly prattling away your nonsensical wonderings in my ear."
"I'm bored." I stated plainly. Not in the whining tone I used on
tJfaJ: Mimi's Diary 4Dear Diary,
So, I guess things aren't as bad as they seemed. After the whole deal at Merlee's Mansion blew over (Count totally said not to worry about ithe's such a sweetie) things sort of settled down for me. I've been hanging around Castle Bleck being ten shades of BORED, for, like, ever now!
okay, not really Its only been, like, three days.
But, still, after all that excitement, its hard to just settle down and take a break all of a sudden! And to make things worse, nobody's here to keep my company. Dimentio watched me for the first day I was backCount Bleck wouldn't let me leave my room, so the jester sat at the end of my bed and told me stories and jokes and showed me magic tricks.
But, by day two, Count Bleck sent Dimentio off to take his shot at the heroes. I haven't seen or heard from him sincehe isn't somewhere where I can reach him through our computer.
So, I've been stuck alone, doomed to wander the blank, empty hallways with only the ranting
OF2: Chapter 3Ever true to his word, Luigi's predictions were correctafter a few more hours listening to tales Dimentio and Mr. L fed her and gulping down shroom after shroom, Livi's leg did eventually heal, and she was back to normal by the end of the Grand Prix. When Luigi came to fetch her, she didn't ask who had won or what had happenedshe couldn't care less.
But, life went on, and soon Livi bid Dimentio and Mr. L a fond farewell and joined the other heroes. The other racers had all been dismissed for the evening, the crowds had gone home, and only the residents of the castle and the Mario Brothers remained.
"I'm very sorry you couldn't participate in the rest of the races, Livi " Peach said gently, laying a hand on the fangirl's shoulder. "You were doing so well at first!"
Livi hmphed and swatted her hand away. "I know. I was kicking freakin' butt."
The Princess gave her a sympathetic smile. "Maybe next year."
Livi blew the bangs out of her face. "Whatever I
tJfaJ: Chapter 21I didn't know what was happening to me. I don't think anyone did.
My parents had brought me to another witch in some distant village. She claimed she could cure meif nothing else at all, she could discover what was wrong with me.
No one knew how it happened. I went out in the woods near our home village to play with my friends one day. When I got home that night I was different.
I was in pain nearly all the time. I did and said things I had no control over, and everyone could tell were clearly not my doing.
We sat in a small, dark room, and waited for the witch to come to us. My mother held me tight and stroked my hair and whispered lovingly to me, despite the scars and bruises she had from my attacking her. I never meant to hurt her. I would see her, blink, and she was on the ground.
I never wanted to hurt either of my parents. They loved me so much, and they only wanted to help me. And all I could do was hurt them.
So even though I was scared, when the witch cam
