Dear Diary

Dear Diary

He noticed me...

I felt my heart jump all over the place when his eyes landed on me; when the half smile played on his lips and that sparkle covered his eyes, like he knew something, like he could actually feel my excitement. His gorgeous blue eyes then looked around to see if someone else was there to hear what he was about to say. 

One of his hands landed on my head, his fingers softly played with my hair all the way down to my shoulders where I recently cut it. Everybody thought it looked good on me; I was hoping it would make me look older, wiser...

He opened his mouth and I knew he was about to say something, I lived to hear everything he had to say, he was so smart and it seemed like he always had the right thing to say, maybe not the right thing in general but the right thing to make you feel better. That was the third thing I loved about him.

Even when I knew he was about to speak I wasn't ready for the impact his raspy yet very clear voice was going to have on me. His voice was like a calling, the one perfect thing he had, so deep and powerful and perfectly made for him. That voice on anybody else would sound ridiculous but on him it sounded like the perfect song. That was the fourth thing I loved about him.

"You cut your hair" He said. It wasn't a question, because he never made stupid questions, it was pretty obvious my hair was shorter. "You look beautiful" 

"Thank you" I said with a smile, what I really wanted to do was to wrap my arms around his neck and let him know I did it for him, to let him know how hard I worked just to get him to notice a small detail like my hair. His head leaned to the side and he stared at me like he actually knew what I was thinking, like he could feel my soul slowly leaving my body just to reach his.

"Want to go eat some ice cream?" He then asked. My whole body died in that moment. I quickly looked back to my dad's studio; he was still working on some important case. He noticed. "Don't mind him, he's busy" With that being said he grabbed my hand and pulled me in direction to the front door. "It's going to be just you and me" 

My soul never felt so happy.

263Adder: Okay so I adore this story. I only knocked one star off plot for historical inaccuracies because I'm a bit of a stickler for that. The ending broke my heart though, considering you already changed history couldn't you (SPOILER) change it a bit more and have them together!!!! I want an alternative...

Fashakin Michael: I have looked for the right word to describe this piece of Art but I concluded with "Wow!" Every chapter held me glue till the last and the book is just the reflection of our environment with its reaction. Though the writeup is not far from what happens in home but the writer was able to hold me ...

LouiseJ2: I enjoyed the detail you went into with regards to the case. It made the UNSUB appear believable. The crisis in the middle of the story was my favorite part, very dramatic but not over the top. I feel like sometimes pairings can be overdone but I liked that some of the relationships were a little...

MavisMcQueen: "To Live Again" is a well crafted, highly engaging, heart vibrating tale surrounding our favorite Elven King. The author will keep you engrossed until the very end and by that time you will feel so strongly for Clara and the other characters that you will never want it to ever. Thrandu...

Toria Danielle: I must congratulate Erin Swan on completing such a beautiful work. The Rising Sun is well rounded and leaves nothing to be wanted. ALL of the characters and their development are beautifully written. The plot is extremely well thought out. Creating a whole different type of universe is difficult ...

Alex Rushmer: This was not what I expected, but I enjoyed it a lot Malfoy was always one of the characters that I liked a lot, so I like that a lot of this happens between him and Colette. I read the first couple chapters, and I enjoyed your writing style and am excited to see where you take this story. My com...

FateFellShort: I have read this story and have followed the writers on tumblr from the beginning. Its a wonderful story. Beautifully written with a really nice pace, that makes it enjoyable to read more than once. For me, fairy tail has very good characters but what the writers have done is give them more depth...

Alex Reltin: This is a great story! I love how well you go into detail and emotions of Capri, and Mel. You have amazing dialogue and overall it's just a thrill to read!The only critique I could find is that some of the paragraphs should be separated. For example:-"If Nia would have just let me take the car an...
