I never wanted to die. I never wanted to lose my friends and family just because I wasn't good enough. I loved all of them so much.
They don't love you back.
I loved Leon and Lola and Miriam; my ancestors, the ones who started it all. They are all gone now though. Master said they were 'retired' but I know better. They are gone and they always will be. Retired was just a soft word for being erased because no one wanted them anymore.
And now you're going to join them. Nobody wants you either.
That's not true, my family wanted me. I was the mother figure for all of them; I kept them all in line. And whenever I got too drunk on sake they would always forgive me. They had to love me to do that, didn't they?
How could they love someone like you? You're too selfish to love anyone but yourself.
I loved them. I loved every single one of them.
I loved Rin for her outgoing personality and the fact that she doesn't care what anyone thinks of her. The way she
No Fear!Hand in hand they were running towards the abandoned warehouse, fog coating their legs.
The girl screamed, terrified of the monstrous creatures that were on their tails. Her partner urged her to keep running and pulled her into the building. The teenage boy let go of his companion's hand for a moment as he pushed hard at the stiff door, the only barrier between them and the oncoming herd of blood-thirsty monsters. He freed it at last from its rusty edges and slammed it in the zombies' faces. They were momentarily safe from the corpses' wrath, but through the door came the unnerving sound of rotten hands banging on thin metal.
The protagonist wiped some sweat from his forehead, sweeping a few stray blonde curls from his face. He looked over to his girlfriend who was trembling and softly crying into her hands.
"Oh Jayden, I'm so frightened!" she cried, rushing forward to bury her face in her beloved's chest.
He cradled her with his toned muscular arms, bringing her close. "It's alright,
Vocaloid Fic: Diamonds in the Rough Chapter 7 Off Key
"Don't mean to be rude, but why the emphasis on 'the'?" Meckenzie asked bluntly. The other loids-in-training sighed in relief because she had said what they all were too afraid to ask.
Miriam didn't even blink, but Ms White looked a little flustered.
"Well, as most of you know, Miriam was the one who set up the loid resurrection project, but she was also the third Engloid to be released. She was Leon and Lola's protégé," she enlightened the confused teenagers.
"Oh " Meckenzie crossed her arms. "I get the formality now."
Whoa Allen hadn't known Leon and Lola had a third Engloid. He'd figured he'd be used to
surprises by now but he wasn't.
"So you're a big deal?" Riley queried.
"I was," Miriam said darkly.
The teenagers were smart enough not to ask Miriam for any further explanations. Allen still had the uneasy feeling that he knew Miriam from somewhere. He had seen her face before. But where?
.then he added

It was pouring down rain outside and every loid―excluding Annabelle, who dropped Allen and Riley off and went to join the mysterious Miriam―was hanging out in the basement costume shop. Even though they were underground, everyone could still hear the hard pattering on the entrance glass door upstairs. Ms White was handing out mugs of hot chocolate to the shivering teenagers. Allen took his cup in his frozen fingers and relished the soft, embracing warmth. It had to be the coldest autumn ever.
"Why don't we play a game?" Teto suggested.
"What game?" Allen asked.
"A game where each person takes a turn in picking a partner to exchange facts with before moving onto the next person. It'll be fun!" promised Teto.
"You mean to match the 'fun' weather outside?" Nerissa said plainly, sipping on her chocolate with one hand and holding her precious phone in the other.
"That's a great idea! To be a loid group, we all need to get to know each
Vocaloid Fic: Diamonds in the Rough Chapter 5 Trip to the Past
Allen didn't know where to look. He didn't even know where to start. His sister, his step-mother and a girl that may or may not have been entering his midnight dreams were all standing in the same room.
"What is she doing here?" Riley asked in a cold voice. Her eyes were on Annabelle.
"Hello, dear," Annabelle greeted, looking a little nervous, "How have you been?"
Riley's eyes flickered, her face tight. She turned sideways to look at the blonde girl at the counter who was still texting. Who looked up at Riley.
"What did I do?"
"You didn't say that this woman," Riley pointed at Annabelle, "was going to be here."
Counter-girl rolled her eyes, " 's not my problem. Get over yourself."
"Umm," Allen interrupted, "could someone please explain to me just what exactly is going on here?"
Everyone stared at him as if they'd forgotten he was even there. Counter girl shot a look at Riley as if saying to cool it. Riley folded her arms and sighed, obviou
Vocaloid Fic: Diamonds in the Rough Chapter 4 Singing in the Leaves
"You're sure that you want this squirt?"
"Yes, I'm sure. He can complete the set. We have a line-up."
"But you don't even know if the boy can sing."
"He can. He has the heart."
"Heart has nothing to do with it, Clare."
"But his sister―"
"I know, she told me too. But that doesn't mean that this this KID will make a difference. You don't know what could happen."
"You're right, Nerissa, I don't. But I can still hope these 'kids' WILL make a difference; just like the Engloids did."
Ms White was studying the worn photo. There was a distant smile on her face as she gazed upon Leon and Lola standing in front of their mural. She had seen this picture a thousand times but , in her head, it stayed as fresh as the day it was taken.
"Just you wait," said Ms White softly to herself, "These kids are going to make things change for the better."
"Nnngh?" Allen blearily opened one eye and saw Ms White standing in front of
