Posted by: Rapierman Sep 17 2005, 09:21 PM

A drabble is a prose of 50 (half), 100 (regular) or 200 (double) words reflecting the thoughts and feelings of a fictional character.


"To be...or not to be. That is the question."

Shakespeare said that, didn't he?

I walk a crowded street, occupied by onlookers, monsters, large beings, be they hero or villain...

...and yet I walk alone. Alone in my thoughts. Alone in my pain.

Nothing matters now. Just the walk. No destination needed.

Who is this that interrupts my solitude? Oh, it's the girl who said she could get money from old men. Bah! What is that to me? I am no one's teacher anyway. Let her go back to her game. I care not one jot or tittle for what happens to the world. None shall cry at my funeral anyway.

"To be...or not to be. That is the question."

That really is the question, isn't it? Whether to suffer the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune...or, with each step, walk away from it all.

And why not? It's not like anyone appreciates anything I do anyway. Not Erika. Not Piro. Not those students at the school.


They're all fools. I should just leave them to rot where they stand. I'll be okay on my own. I have before, yes? What are they compared to this?

Next time huh? He wishes…
This wasn’t worth it,
My god that isn’t?
He is a teacher.
What if what if he, tells mom?
If she knew…
She would…
Why do you keep walking?
Don’t tell my parents Sensei.
You are my teacher aren’t you?

Gah, mine's crap. yours is very good....

Was I really that important, anyway? maybe I never was myself, anyway. But how could I be myself now?

There are ways to die that leave you with a beating heart and warm blood... where did I hear that before? I can't remember.

Why is she shouting? must they all feed on the livig courpse... of me? Who did I describe as a living dead before.. I can't remember.

That word, teacher, what a strage tinge it has to it, the tinge of a lie. I never was their teacher anyway. I used them, I ranted in their ears, but their english was left untouched. I am no one's teacher.

There are ways to die... oh, now I remember.

Great drabble but I don't think Largo doesn't give a damn about Piro. He helped him fix the PC before he went for his walk didn't he.

hmmm... wonder where he is going (might be Miho, but it doesn't seem too likely)

This really isn't a discussion thread.
