    In the fall of 1967, the smoke had just cleared and dust settled of the Hough riots a year earlier. As a kid of 10, I watched a small swarm of well dressed dignitaries and media descend on what is now Garrett Square at Lakeview and Superior.

    Unbeknownst to those of us there, we were within a couple blocks from the flash point of the Glenville riots that would breakout the following year. In-between Cleveland's deadly bookends of civil unrest were the hopes and dreams of city blacks riding on the shoulders of Carl B. Stokes.

    It just so happened that a pack of my grade school classmates and I from St. Agatha's (now the Martin de Porres Center) crossed the street during lunchtime to go to a little hole in the wall known as the Chicken Wing Shack. It was there where the Stokes entourage convened.

    The up incoming mayoral candidate spoke of broad visions of development of the area. His focus was the nearby vast acreage of old abandoned CTS bus barn buildings. Amidst the commotion and wolfing down drenched in BBQ sauce 15 cent wings was the low murmur of the Shack might be closing and torn down as well.

    I barely managed to wipe off my hands before Stokes worked his way over to me. His winning smile led a multitude of handshakes during the photo op with neighborhood folk.

    Later that day I told my parents I shook hands with him. They proceeded to go on and on how things for "Negroes" were looking up. Carl Stokes running for mayor of Cleveland was of ongoing grand equation. They reiterated how much change for black people has happened since their relocation from the south during the 1950s.

    Me, in time I got over the eventual loss the shack and those tasty wings. The nuns of my school stopped fussing over us leaving bones all over the playground. But those very same nuns of the Dominican Order gave us insight of social change we inner city kids could be part of. We were in encouraged to read the papers and watch the news on Carl Stokes and the other candidates. This led to further discussion and expressed opinion among ourselves about the power of the ballot box.

    My being able to vote wouldn't occur until the mid 70s. With Stokes on the rise, we were all witnesses to the dynamic change of Cleveland's political landscape. Stokes brought my first taste of how much we kids may end up shaping the future.

    I was a junior at St. Stephen High School in 1967 when Carl Stokes was elected mayor of the city of Cleveland. What an exciting and memorable time in the history of this city and in my life. Yes, I was there and yes I worked on his campaign.

    I remembered the small storefront at the corner of Fulton and Bridge Avenues that was used as the Stokes campaign office in the Hispanic community. I spent hours there on the phones and sealing envelopes for all the mailings sent in Spanish to the Latino voters. All of us who worked on his campaign were so very proud to be a part of the history in the making: Moises Maldonado, now deceased, Andres Castro, Aurea Rivera and so many others.

    There was so much positive chatter in the Latino community for this man, who captured all of our hearts. He looked just like one of us and we gave his campaign our all. No other candidate has come close to what we in the Hispanic community did to help elect Carl Stokes as the first black mayor of a major city. We were and are very proud to have been there and done what we did.

    My life was completely changed because of that election. I learned then that if I worked diligently for something that I truly believed in, it would come to fruition. It did then, and it continues to happen today! I stand tall and proud because of Carl Stokes and I thank God for giving me the experience and the honor to have worked on the Stokes campaign for Mayor.

    As the campaign manager for Seth Taft in 1967, I remember many things about Carl Stokes. First of all, he wasn't the candidate we thought we were going to have to run against! Before the primary, I remember Seth hoping that he would receive Carl's endorsement afterwards. Obviously, that did not go the way we thought it would, and he went on to win the general election by 1200 votes.

    He was a politician who had style and class. I can remember he and Seth going back and forth with each other, but it never was personal and the two grew very close, and continued to work together to better the city of Cleveland.

    While his election was a historic victory for the African American community, the contest wasn't about race. While it could have easily devolved into a highly negative contest. He broke down the barriers and paved the way for the future. He genuinely cared about our city and always tried to do what was best.

    In a business where it can be hard for the nice guys to succeed, it was nice to see Carl and Seth succeed.

    It was the year that Martin Luther King and Robert Kennedy were assassinated. In the auditorium of John Carroll University, a group of participants and their host families of the Cleveland International Program had gathered for a farewell program and party.

    The social worker participants were returning to their home countries after working in agencies for four months. At the podium, Mayor Carl Stokes was expressing his good wishes and appreciation of their efforts in the city's agencies.

    A loud "bang" rang out. The dead silence, an atmosphere of apprehension, and fear was broken when the Mayor smiled his dimpled grin and commented, "That was a balloon breaking. For a moment, I thought they were down to mayors."

    Sighs of relief followed, and our foreign visitors (and we) were impressed by Carl Stokes graciousness and humor.

    George W. Demarest Jr.

    It was the mid sixties.

    I was a white guy from New York City, a Navy vet.

    I met and married a Cleveland girl. We lived in Parma.

    I was in the convention business. Lucky for me, Carl Stokes appointed me Deputy General Manager at the Convention Center. I was apolitical, but had the backing of labor, business, and the client base for the job. Those were the days when Cleveland was alive downtown and we were in the top ten for convention business.

    Those were great years. Cleveland was coming together and downtown was alive. When Council President Jim Stanton and the Press and the Plain Dealer joined together in supporting Carl Stokes, the city was on its way. People from both sides of the city bonded together. We survived riots and we united.

    What happened? We need leaders like Carl Stokes today.

    I'm glad to have known Carl Stokes and to have worked for him.

    Cleveland was never better!

    This Plain Dealer file photo of Mayor Carl Stokes meeting the cast of Up With People ran in the paper recently along with a note requesting reader memories.
    When I turned to the Forum section in Tuesday morning's paper, I literally gasped! To the question "Were you there?" I replied out loud: YOU BET I WAS!!!!!!!!!!

    I was a member of that Up With People! cast that met with Mayor Stokes that day - and the only Clevelander in the group, I might add! Gosh, it brought back wonderful memories!!!!!!

    How i WISH that I had something interesting, or worthwhile to say about the event, but the one thing that I CAN say is that I distinctly remember how very proud I was to be a Clevelander that day!

    I also remember the "Cleveland Now" button that the mayor has on his lapel (right under the Up With People! button) and, if my memory serves me right, we all received one.

    Cleveland was the first big city on what turned out to be an 18 month stint with Up With People! for me. We were here for about eight days and performed at a lot of parks around the city, and also performed at the Edgewater Park Festival of Freedom on July 4th! WOW! Now THAT was a BLAST!! It was an unbelievable gift to be able to perform in MY HOME TOWN, for all of my family and friends, while getting to meet so many other terrific Clevelanders!

    The whole cast had a great time, too! We always stayed in the homes of folks in the different cities where we performed, and Cleveland was no exception! The reception that we got from Clevelanders was warm and very supportive!

    I (of COURSE) just have to end this email the way we began and ended EVERY performance:

    Up, up with people!
    You meet them wherever you go.
    Up, up with people!
    They're the best kind of folks to know!
    If more people were for people -
    All people everywhere,
    There'd be a lot less people to worry about
    And a lot more people who care........
    There'd be a LOT LESS people to worry about
    And a LOT MORE people who CARE!!!!!!!!!!

    Thanks so much for this trip down memory lane!!!!!!!!

    When Carl Stokes was Mayor of Cleveland, I was Vice President for Development at John Carroll University and my work frequently involved me with the civic community, where Stokes was an important presence.

    I admired him from afar for the leadership he was giving his city and the courage he displayed during the Hough riots in the Sixties. I got an up-close and very personal look at his effective style at a meeting sponsored by local colleges to motivate black high school students to pursue higher education.

    From the moment he began speaking, Carl's young audience a treated him like a rock star, hanging on every word. What they received was a message of opportunity and hope, rather than a recounting of grievances. While acknowledging the barriers to meaningful employment blacks had suffered over the years, he said his election was a sign that new thinking was on the way and if they would work hard and get an education they would be able to take advantage of a better world that was in the making.

    Carl illustrated his point with a story told with a wry sense of humor. He described the work of a group he sponsored to elevate black employment from the ranks of janitors and kitchen workers to salaried positions in Cleveland firms and corporations. He participated at a meeting with one of the largest local banks to pressure them into putting a black into a management level job.

    "They thought it was a good idea," Carl said. "They told us there was an accounting job open and as soon as we got someone in there they would hire him. We thanked them and promised to follow through fast. The problem was that the only one we could find who met the banks' requirements already had a job he had to quit to take the bank position."

    The young people got the point. The mayor and his colleagues would work to open up employment opportunities for them, but they had to do their part by getting a good education so they would qualify for them.

    After answering questions from the students, Carl moved among the young people, shaking hands and asking questions about their families and school life. They had found the leader they were looking for.

    Carl Stokes was one of the most charismatic persons I have ever known. His smile and charm lit up the room.

    During his first term, I was his chairman of the Mayor's Council on Youth Opportunity, with one of its responsibilities being to allocate a million dollars in Cleveland Now money to the neighborhoods.

    It was an exciting and challenging time for his administration.

    On a personal basis, both Carl and I paid particular attention to men's clothing styles. We always checked out what each of us was wearing. He was tough competition.

    Carl was an original. He had much more to "give" than we got. No successor has been his equal in style and elegance.

    I was a young teenager when Carl Stokes was running for mayor. I did not understand, at that time, what being a mayor meant. I knew the person elected would take care of the city. I did, however, understand how important it was to my friends and family that the man being
    considered for this job was a black man.

    We were in the midst of many civil right issues, causes and movements. While not directly impacted by many of the issues I knew enough to know races were not treated equally. I questioned why no people of color were ever on television or in commercials. I wondered if people thought we didn't shampoo, take baths, wear makeup, eat, play, all the things white people did in commercials. Why people of color were not teachers in my school but only janitors and cafeteria aids. Why so many friends and family members complained of unfair treatment due to the color of their skin.

    It was obvious that we were not considered equal and not worthy. That kind of treatment will break a person, ruin a community and take away any sense of pride.

    I can remember the excitement on our street when it was reported that Carl Stokes was running. The realization that we, as a race, were finally being recognized, that someone was going to represent us, made us all feel a sense of pride. I don't think we knew we were
    experiencing a sense of pride, we knew it felt good. Carl proved to many people that there were African Americans who were capable, educated, well spoken and able to do the work previously performed only by a white man.

    My father met him while he was campaigning. He was impressed with his sincerity, his vision, his sense of being part of the community and his ability to understand and accept what being mayor meant to us all.

    Carl " The Charmer"

    I operated the Terminal Tower at the time Carl left office and he leased space at a very nominal rental, but of course he had no furniture. He saw this wonderful antique desk that we had in our operation room and charmed us into loaning it to him until he got his own furniture. It was an heirloom.

    The last time I saw it, by accident, is when it was displayed on his front lawn on Larchmere at his house. But I feel great when I remember his beguiling personality, sensational smile, and great laugh.

    While Carl was running for mayor, he had his campaign office in the Rockefeller Building, and at the time I was one of the owners and had my office in the building.

    Carl and I were friends. One day he holds a press conference to say he heard that there is a rumor going around that he is black and he wanted to set the record straight that he has always been black, is still black and intends to remain black.

    When I heard it I sent him a telegram saying, "Carl I was shocked to learn that have been, you still are and intend to remain black, henceforth, please use the rear entrance to the building. When he called me he was laughing so hard he could hardly talk. Great guy.

    Anne Hydock

    At the age of 10, I remember hoping that Carl Stokes would become mayor of Cleveland and, more importantly, the first African American mayor of our city.

    I made a few banners and my sister, Kathy (age 8 at the time) and I marched around the predominantly Caucasian neighborhood of West Park/Kamm's Corners cheering for Carl Stokes!

    We were definitely making a statement. And Mayor Stokes was a catalyst for change.

    The reason this impacted me was because of a family trip to Florida the year before in 1966. At the age of 9, little did I know about the Civil Rights Movement or racism.

    In Georgia, I saw signs on water fountains and gas station restrooms that said, "Whites Only". I didn't understand what that meant and when my parents explained it, I thought it was cruel that the Blacks were treated differently from Whites.

    A few years ago, I had the occasion to meet Congressman Louis Stokes and told him my activist cheerleading story. He chuckled and thanked me for supporting his brother.

    Mom & Dad: Thank you for teaching us that there is good in everyone.

    My recollection of Mayor Stokes is about 40 years old. As a young, idealistic new educator in the Cleveland Public Schools, the belief was held that a major personal impact could be made on society's ills, especially prejudice and injustice.

    My first teaching job was at East High. I got my baptism of fire by way of the Hough riots. One faculty member turned out to have strong Black Nationalist philosophies. She was able to help in forcing a school assembly where a great deal of incendiary rhetoric filled the air. The student body and faculty were in turmoil.

    Still, with rose-colored glasses firmly affixed, I recall sitting on the front steps of the school and talking to a gentleman named Sababa Bile. I hope time excuses me for any incorrect spelling of his name. No doubt, this man was both a Black Nationalist and a passionate activist. He was also a 'gentleman' because we sat for an hour, like old friends, and discussed solutions. His was very forthright: implement a Black History class in the curriculum. He didn't ask for more Afro-American faculty or a free lunch program. He asked for one thing, that in hindsight, should have already been in place for the students.

    Our conversation didn't alter the outcome. The Hough riots came and went and people were hurt and killed and properties were damaged and destroyed.

    After things quieted down, classes started again, but the building was tense and filled with fear and anxiety. As my English class was settling in to its assignment, the classroom door suddenly opened and I was blinded by bright light. Until the men stepped in to the room, I did not realize that these were camera lights from one of the local TV stations.

    The biggest surprise came when I recognized Mayor Carl Stokes in the group. With a broad smile on his face, he approached me to say hello and have a momentary chat. Then he turned his attention to the wide-eyed faces of the young people who needed to hear from him the most. He reassured them that he would work hard to allow them to get their education in an appropriate setting, with no fear, with no anxiety----"just take care of business and things will be OK," he said.

    In just a brief stop he touched the pulse of the school. We felt like we didn't have to keep holding our collective breath. His presence, his charisma and his words will always stay with me.

    Somehow, both teacher and students realized we were in the presence of a good man.

    Sandra M. Johnson

    Sandra M. Johnson lives in Westlake

    Growing up in Jacksonville, Florida I can recall vividly sitting in my Mother's Beauty Shop after school reading current issues of both Ebony and Jet Magazines while she worked. In fact, I can still hear her telling me, "Do not grow up to be shiftless, irresponsible and lazy" Rather, "Always be on time; look people straight in the eye when addressing them; and remember to stand up for your rights."

    Simultaneously, my Dad took a more global perspective as a Pullman Porter who traveled extensively. However, the same basic principles were ingrained in both his thoughts and teachings as well. Simply put, his posture was, "You can be anything you want to be -- just get a good education."

    Today, those guiding principles have remained with me throughout my formal education and professional career spanning many years in multiple states.

    Clearly, that entire 1960's era during my formative years revolved around The Civil Rights Movement, The Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and all that entailed, including lifting one's self up by your own bootstraps mentality. Further, the "We Shall Overcome Mantra" prevailed and ultimately permeated our lives -- day by day.

    Therefore, when Carl Burton Stokes was elected Mayor of Cleveland in 1967, this was genuine evidence that if you persevered, worked diligently and educated yourself -- success could be yours. His election was a historic groundswell, no doubt. Yet, in the black community it was much more, a very momentous occasion. Just think, elected as the First African American Mayor of a Major Metropolitan City in the United States of America. By this time, I was living in Detroit, Mich. Although my parents and I talked about this great accomplishment with pride and what it meant in terms of unlimited opportunities for all blacks.

    Years later after settling in Cleveland, I had a rare opportunity to meet and chat informally with Carl Stokes. It was on one of his trips from anchoring in New York City to attend a Desegregation Program at The Greater Cleveland Interchurch Council hosted by The Rev. Dr. Donald Jacobs and the Rev. Joan Campbell.

    A brief encounter perhaps, yet the memory will always be indelible. In fact, I can still remember Carl's easy smile; a twinkle in his eyes as if he knew something no one else was privy to -- and all the charm and charisma to fill the entire room. What a personable man!

    Fast forward three decades later, I have grown to know Congressman Louis Stokes far better via The Phillis Wheatley Association; The Black Congressional Caucus; Case Western Reserve University; Leadership Cleveland ; The Cuyahoga Metropolitan Housing Authority and a cadre of civic, cultural, educational and social service organizations. Of course, Congressman Stokes possesses the same disarming demeanor as Carl. Stated differently, making one feel as if you were the most important person in the room.

    While the Stokes Brothers' political histories and close camaraderie as siblings will forever be intertwined, I strongly suspect their Mother, Mrs. Louise Stokes instilled many of the same mores my Mother shared so many years ago. And so, it comes to past from those days in Lucye's Beauty Kit to as recently as Sept. 13, 2007, at the dedication of The Louis Stokes Museum, I have truly met two American Living Legends -- Carl Burton Stokes and Louis Stokes.

    When I was about 10 years old my friend Sharon and I went to see Aretha Franklin downtown. We hopped onstage and went backstage to meet her after the show was over.

    Security stopped us when we got backstage and asked us to leave. Quick witted, I told them that Carl Stokes was my father. Just as we were headed to Aretha's dressing room the mayor came downstairs and he played along with me like he was our father and lead us to her dressing room.

    Aretha came out and gave Sharon and I a rose. Boy did we feel special that day.

    Remembering Stokes, the 1st black mayor of Cleveland brings many fond memories of black pride when I was a little girl growing up in the Lee-Harvard neighborhood.

    Forty years later, his election still sends chills up my spine. Not only was it a historic ground breaking for the leadership in our city but our country. The Stokes family was very instrumental in me becoming a registered voter and my interest in government and politics.

    It was a time when black and white residents took pride in doing things like mowing their lawn and picking up the trash. When couples walked hand in hand, got dressed up and went out on the town to support the arts and cultural events.

    Blacks were unified and a strong ethnic group of people. They patronized black businesses in their neighborhoods. When neighbors were neighbors and cared and looked out for our youth.

    In the Stokes days, parents brought up children who were respectful to each other, their parents and elders. They treated property as their own. It was a time when parents insisted that their children attend church, got a good education and demanded a positive change. There was a strong political base in the community. There was more social consciousness among our youth.

    Growing up, several politicians like Arnold Pinkney and Stokes invested in Cleveland, the city in which they lived. They helped improve residential streets like the Lee-Harvard neighborhood.

    Youngsters went to the library and participated in summer reading programs. Families sat down and ate dinner together. Mothers incorporated fruits, salads and vegetables in their children's meals. Fast food was a delicacy not a staple. There were two-parent households.

    Downtown Cleveland offered entertainment, many restaurants and stores to shop for people of all walks of life. The city of Cleveland was a clean safe city that had many jobs and opportunities. Because of Stokes leadership, the city of Cleveland became a progressive city and a proud city to live!

    I moved to Cleveland from New Orleans in early 1967. I was 23 years old. Growing up in New Orleans and experiencing racial inequality there and attending the very liberal University of Wisconsin for three years, I was ready to help change the world and saw politics as the means to that end.

    When I got here, Carl Stokes was running for mayor. What an incredible opportunity! To be involved in the mayoral election of the first black mayor of a major U.S. city. WOW!

    My friends and I worked on the campaign from the grass roots level. I campaigned for him door to door, handing out literature and information. I worked at his campaign office, calling people to get out the vote and solicit funds, sending out mailings and answering questions for people who came to the headquarters.

    A close (female) friend of mine and I gave a party for him in Cleveland Heights at the height of his campaign. I will never forget Carl. If you look up charismatic in the dictionary, there should be a big picture of Carl Stokes. He was the most charming, handsome, debonair man I ever met.

    He made everyone feel they were the only person in the room and that they alone were the reason for his success.

    We were all crazy about him and Carl relished every moment of it. He arrived at our party late with his entourage and there was a feeling of wonderment that overcame everyone in his presence. I consider myself very lucky for having been there for this piece of history.

    David McCann lives in Akron

    My heart has always been with the Cleveland area having grown up in Warrensville Heights in the late 50's. In 1959, when our family moved south to what was real country - Bath Township - our family's focus was still on Cleveland.

    Dad worked for D&B Products on Denison Avenue in the Flats.

    I fondly remember as a kid reading about Carl Stokes victory over Ralph Locher - as I saw Stokes as the man with the smile and his opponent as a rather dour man.

    In the winter of 1970 - as concerns about the environment were gaining attention among the politicians- as a freshman in high school, our biology class was required to complete a research paper about the efforts of government and industry to improve environmental conditions.

    Let the letter writing begin - Jones and Laughlin Steel, Republic Steel, and the mayor of Cleveland were on my list.

    As fate would have it, my folks were having dinner at the Kon Tiki restaurant at Public Square, and there was Mayor Stokes. My father, never to let a moment go by where he can introduce himself to dignitaries, walked over and introduced himself to the mayor, and, bless his heart, asked the mayor whether he had gotten a letter from me, his 14 year old son.

    "Yes!" said the mayor quite enthusiastically. Pulling out a business card, he addressed a brief comment to me that a full letter about his administration's environmental policies would be forthcoming.

    The letter arrived. I was delighted as it completed the report.

    I got an "A" on that report.

    Fred McGunagle

    Fred McGunagle is a former Cleveland Press reporter.

    There I was, my forearms on the shoulder blades of the mayor of Cleveland, desperately pushing because if I left any space between us I would be knocked aside by the swaying, celebrating crowd

    Ralph Locher, in turn, pushed his detective bodyguard, who plunged ahead like a blocking back clearing the way through tacklers so that Locher could congratulate the winner of the 1967 Democratic primary for mayor - Carl Stokes.

    As city hall reporter for the Cleveland Press, I had just watched Locher concede the election in front of his dejected supporters at the Pick-Carter Hotel. Now, with Locher's wife Eleanor, we piled into the mayor's car and headed for the Rockefeller Building. We knew it was going to be bedlam when we saw that a noisy celebration had already spilled over into Superior Avenue and West Ninth Street.

    Inside, we eventually we eventually worked our way close enough to the platform so that somebody saw Locher and signaled to let him through. It took several minutes to quiet the crowd so he could speak.

    I've covered mayoral campaigns from Anthony Celebrezze to Mike White, but I have never seen voters electrified like Cleveland blacks in Stokes' 1967 campaign. When he spoke in black churches they rose to their feet shouting "Amen!" and "Right on, brother!" Waves of applause rocked the building.

    Gradually, they came to see in Stokes not just a political victory but a new emancipation. Somehow prejudice would crumble, discrimination in employment and housing would vanish and they would finally be free of their invisible chains.

    No one - Stokes or anyone else - could hope to live up to that dream. It would founder on reality, on Ahmed Evans and on racism fanned on radio by Gary Dee and George Forbes and on Stokes' own missteps

    But for Cleveland's black citizens on one delirious night in 1967, deliverance had arrived.

    They had overcome.

    In the 1960s, I was a high school student in a small town in northeastern Ohio. My dad was a blue-collar factory worker, who spent a lot of time around people who used derogatory racial language and practiced racial discrimination on many levels.

    During the Carl Stokes election campaign, I remember my father supporting his efforts, and together we watched the Cleveland election returns with great excitement. Before that, I don't remember my dad ever offering a comment about other politicians or political issues.

    As a teenager beginning to form my own ideas about such things, I remember being
    impressed that my father was open-minded enough to support a black man for the Cleveland mayor's race.

    We didn't live in Cleveland so couldn't vote there, but even at the time, I remember feeling that it was an important event, and I had a new appreciation for my dad as well.

    In 1968, I was in elementary school at St. Luke's in Lakewood. Our teacher asked each student to write a letter to someone well-known, in the hopes of eliciting a response.

    Martin Luther King had just been assassinated that summer. I wrote my letter to then-Mayor Carl Stokes, expressing my sympathy over the loss of Dr. King.

    Mayor Stokes did, indeed, write me back. I have kept the letter to this day (somewhere in a box of memorabilia). While I haven't looked at the letter in 30 years, I still remember, in part, what he wrote: "It was very kind of you to write such wonderful words, and I hope to someday have the privilege of meeting you." I never had the privilege of meeting Mayor Stokes, but I will always have the memory (and the letter!)

    Timothy H. Smith

    Timothy H. Smith lives in Kent

    As a 20-year-old college kid working at the then number one radio station in Cleveland, WIXY 1260, I was either very impressed or very cynical about the noteworthy people who came through our news room to do live interviews and take listeners calls on our morning show. We had Monday Morning quarterbacking sessions with the Browns Dick Schafrath, call-ins with ABC's Howard Cossell, music stars and many politicians, among which was Carl Stokes.

    Carl was not only a ground-breaking mayor, he was a true leader. Something NEO's biggest city has not seen in some time. He was, indeed, the right man for the time and it's difficult to imagine how the city would have fared under anyone else. The void in leadership across the country seems to grow annually as politicians are influenced by polls and power and do most things to be popular and win elections. A man like Carl Stokes would be welcomed today at any level of government.

    Carl Stokes was also a very warm guy who treated me, the hippy kid in the news room, like someone who was important. I remember the first time I met Carl, as well as Howard Metzenbaum - both humble, soft-spoken, genuine people who cared about doing the right thing, nothing more. Every time Carl came to the studio he brought a box of donuts from a shop on Shaker Square and the first one was offered to me, the kid in the news room who couldn't even vote for him.

    Were he alive today, he most likely would be aghast at the political landscape as are most of us who experienced politicians like Carl Stokes - a man who really made a difference and who really cared.

    Bill Webster

    Bill Webster is a retired clergyman in Mentor

    When mayoral candidate Carl Stokes invited me to accompany him to a print shop where he could order some campaign materials, I jumped into the car with him, and we exchanged introductions along the way.

    All he knew about me was that I was a minister with students from Indiana University - Bloomington. We had come to Cleveland to volunteer for a couple of days. As it turned out, his reason for inviting me to accompany him on this errand was to find out what the agenda was for
    these university students from a neighboring state. And why was this campus minister getting involved in politics, anyway? Before we arrived at the print shop Mr. Stokes had heard the following thumbnail sketch.

    As a campus minister interested in peace and justice issues, I was giving high priority to students who longed for social justice and wondered if the "system" could be trusted to deliver. Both black and white students were involved in my ecumenical study group, sharing
    reflections about their personal experiences in the South and Midwest.

    They read books, heard lectures, visited cities in the South, interviewed political and religious leaders. At their behest, the Bloomington rabbi and two of us Christian ministers had participated in the voter registration drive in Selma, Alabama. So when these students heard that Carl Stokes was being backed by progressive forces to become the first black mayor of Cleveland, they asked if they could volunteer their weekend in Cleveland. "And here we are," I concluded as Mr. Stokes pulled up to the print shop.

    After his order was placed and we were heading back to his campaign headquarters, Mr. Stokes picked up where we had left off. "So your students are wondering if the "system" can deliver peace and justice in these troubled times. So am I! You may have noticed that I chose
    green and white for colors in my handouts. Those are the same colors for the new Interstate Highway signs, pointing to places where people need to go. And that is what my campaign for mayor in Cleveland is about. We want to help people find their way to peace and justice."

    Forty years later, how I would like to meet with those students again, and with Mayor Carl Stokes, too!

  • KHR Request Drabbles~ :D
  • Title: ‘Lover Boy’
    Rating: G
    Pairing: Hints of Lal/Colonello.
    Warnings: Colonello’s singing voice, abuse of the word 'kora'.
    Summary: [Request and prompt for [info]parametric.] In which Colonello learns that serenades are not the best way to make a first impression. [Pre-Series.]

    The radio hissed with static for a moment, before discernable sound began to waken in the old veins of its wires. The song was fuzzy, but coming in clear enough to make out a few stable lines of melody…

    ’I can serenade and gently play on your heart strings, be your valentino just for you…’


    In English, but still Classic, and there was something romantic and nostalgic about a song like this on a radio like that in a place like here. Sand and sunshine and dry heat and a bad antenna rattling off a good song. Ooh, ooh…

    “Ooh, ooh can you feel my love heat? Come on and sit on my hot-seat of love, kora!”

    Those were the first choice words the greenhorn spoke, inadvertently, to his Athena. War Goddess that fit and stung every cliché, Lal Mirch, battlefield whisperer, the brutal woman he’d daydreamed about in his best and barest fantasies about packing heat, the kind of heat that rolled off a pistol when it was hot at the tip from gunpowder sparks, kora, and that got him pretty excited, got his blood rushing, riled, and hey, he was a hot-shot when it came to a rifle. Now, he just needed the girl.

    Lal Mirch stared with disinterest and barely-muted displeasure at the abomination moonwalking across the floorboards of her quarters. His hair hadn’t seen a brush in weeks, zig-zagging blond bopping in time with his head movements, his voice lacking the tune that might have made his performance bearable.

    “I don’t take singing telegrams.”

    If he nearly tripped over the coffee table in his alarm, he made up for it by flashing a smile that wrinkled his nose and stretched his cheeks. “Lal Mirch, kora? I’m—“


    “—Lookin’ to be your next apprentice.”

    “I don’t take students, either.”

    “Do you take mechanics, kora? I fixed your radio.”

    “Not well. It still has static.”

    “Kora, you’re younger than I imagined.”

    “Is your gun compensating for your lack of charm, or something more personal?”

    “My lack of experience, ko—“

    “Stop that.”




    “The only students I take are those I feel won’t get themselves killed on their very first missions. They are stable, serious, courageous, clever, and they do not make fools of themselves within the first minute of meeting me. The door is over here, Colonello. You pull, don’t push.”

    But Colonello was better at pushing, by far.

    “Was that long speech compensating for your lack of charm, or something more personal, kora?”

    ’Ooh love, there he goes again just like a good old-fashioned lover boy,
    Ooh loverboy~…’

    A stalemate of stares, and the radio buzzed a chipper tune, and the disheveled daydreamer grinned something sincere, and it was nostalgic and romantic and classic. A photograph you’ve never seen, but remember deeply. Déjà vu that had yet to occur, tucked into the future safely, where it might one day make you stop and stare. And in that future, you’d want those blue-eyes staring back, just again like now, skylines and marbles and blueberry bubblegum that melted in your mouth.

    It was a problem. This arrogant brat was a charmer. But she hadn’t adopted that problem just yet.

    “I’ll take you on under one condition.”


    “The song on just now… I want you to go into the mess hall and serenade the troops with it at mealtime, 0:800 hours.”

    Colonello shifted his gun strap, headband hanging a little too low over his brow. “Can I call you Lal?”


    “Lal, you said courageous, but clever. I’m not wet enough behind the ears not to know a sure way of getting the snot beat out of me when I hear one, kora.”

    “Are you refusing an order?”

    Sheepish shrug. “Kora.”

    A trite smile. “You pass. Training begins tomorrow.”

    ’Everything's all right, Just hold on tight’…

    Pleased pressure in his temples exploding, a thousand days of gunslinging to come and pass in good company, he hummed the last line to himself, pinning hands behind his head and tapping his foot in time…

    “That's because I'm a good old-fashioned fashioned lover boy…”

    “Stop singing.”

    Warnings: TYL slight spoilers.
    Summary: [Request and prompt for [info]kiku] I continue to be horrible with summaries, so let’s just say… Yamamoto isn’t great at math. [Small Note: In the third part of this, it jumps TYL. Just to avoid confusion, if that isn’t as clear as I tried to make it. &hearts ]

    It might not be the right time
    I might not be the right one
    But there's something about us I want to say
    Cause there's something between us anyway

    Hands drift together in a shy tango, saunter two steps close, and spin one back, testing the air in between, making sure it was mutual before the connect came, the tiniest thing in the world, two palms tickling against one another, fingers romancing. So why did Tsuna feel his stomach drop right out of his physical body, his throat clamped tight and refusing breath?

    “Hey, Tsuna?”
    “U-uh…” Right. Speaking. Even dame-Tsuna could do that. He’d done it many times before, and besides, out of everyone, Yamamoto had always been the easiest to speak to. He gave the impression of listening more wisely than he let on, and even exposed to the roughest weather of words or the silliest strand of confessional fears, his smile was infectious and constant. “Yes?”

    Urrrk. That was the most overcooked ‘yes’ he’d ever given in his whole short-life. Shortening-life, as stress was going to be his end, and the meter was lit by rocket fuel, getting hotter and higher by the minute. Tsuna’s nerves were pinched, as he was sure that, at any moment, a sadistic baby in a fedora was going to pop out of a bush dressed like corn on the cob, or a bento box, or an akuma, and suddenly, his head would be ablaze, and he’d be BURNING to tell Yamamoto, with his dying will, that—

    “This isn’t bad, right?”

    That easy look on his face, like all the world was a simple matter, and Yamamoto didn’t need any proof to know he was right. There was bad and good, and this wasn’t bad, so it must be… good.

    Tsuna relaxed, attention drifting to their touching hands.

    “Ah—no, Yamamoto, I don’t mind.”

    “Haha, all right. So—“

    And he began to chatter, in just the same voice as always. Carefree, as if this were the most natural thing in the world. And in many ways, it was.

    Walking home from school together, Tsuna’s home, where everyone’s Maman would have an early dinner prepared, and that sounded nice, just as nice as it was to hold hands like this, and listen.

    I might not be the right one
    It might not be the right time
    But there's something about us I've got to do
    Some kind of secret I will share with you



    “I need my hand back to use the chopsticks.”

    “Haha, oh, that’s right. You do.”

    Tsuna gave a weak, apologetic smile that hadn’t been pre-meditated. There it was, on his face, nothing he could do about it now.



    “My hand—“

    “Oh, just give me a second. I’m thinking about something.”

    If Gokudera-kun were there, he probably would have scoffed and said that a second was about Yamamoto’s limit, when it came to thinking. Tsuna, however, was a little more worried that a second really meant a minute, or two, or five, or more when it came to Yamamoto, and his stomach was really starting to lurch, and if he didn’t get to his meal before Lambo’s nose played hide-and-seek with it, and won—

    “Hey, I’m not great at math…“ Begun, and if there were something nervous in his tone, it drowned easily when Tsuna fidgeted, drawn out of the panicked monologue of his own mind. Yamamoto regained his cheer, concluding with gusto, “But between the both of us, we have two free hands.”

    Tsuna wasn’t that great at math either, but even he could count that high. Had it really taken Yamamoto that long to--?

    “And you only need two hands to use chopsticks.”

    It was the first time he’d ever correctly solved a logic problem on his first try.

    Unfortunately, Takeshi’s solution didn’t seem quite as logical a few moments later, when, each armed with a single chopstick and a needy mouth, they led an attack on Maman’s dinner, one hand each, which equaled two together.

    …And were basically massacred…

    ’How many hands does it take to just pick up your food, again?’

    ‘Haha, only one.’

    I need you more than anything in my life
    I want you more than anything in my life
    I'll miss you more than anyone in my life
    I love you more than anyone in my life

    Yamamoto absently rubbed the scar on his chin with a calloused finger.

    “Hey, Tsuna?”

    The grass was moist, but it didn’t bother his skin as it leeched into the fabric of his shirt, loosening the starch.

    “I was thinking.”

    If Gokudera were there, he probably would have snorted, said it was a miracle, Yamamoto thinking, because that’s what he still did these days, grasping at insults that had matured into comfort. Something as normal and easy as Yamamoto’s smiling, Gokudera’s profanity, and they were both trying to keep things normal and easy.

    Gokudera, who had always insisted, dogmatically, that he was Tsuna’s right-hand. And that had been fine by Takeshi, who always used to hold Tsuna’s left.

    “I was thinking that I screwed up that math problem.”

    Tsuna hadn’t needed any hands at all. Tsuna would have been Tsuna without any hands, or with four-hundred. The reason Tsuna was Tsuna was because he accepted hands, shyly, and couldn’t let go, even when it made sense to.

    Closing his eyes, he shifted over the patch of loose earth. A nap didn’t sound bad. Even here, where sleep should be impossible.

    But that was logic, and Takeshi was never very good, when it came to math.

    “Shit, you mind not zoning out in the middle of—“
    “WHAT’S so funny, all of a sudden?!”
    “You called me ‘Takeshi’. I think that’s a first, Gokudera.”
    “Go have a friggin’ party about it later then. You can wear a funny little hat and everything.”
    “You really think so? That might be excessive.”
    “Were you born this dumb, or were you dropped on your head?”
    “Hahaha. ’Hayato’.”
    “…You’re such a fucking retard.
    “Hey, hey! Put the lighter away, I’m sorry. We should get going, right?”
    “We’ve only been here five minutes…”
    “It feels like longer when I’m stuck with YOU. What were they thinking, pairing us up?!”
    “Don’t you DARE.”
    “-Gokudera. We’re usually paired up, aren’t we?”
    “Okay, nevermind. I just meant that maybe Tsuna thinks we make a good team?”
    “He’s right, you know.”
    “Do you think I need you to tell me whether or not the Tenth is right about something?”
    “Then you agree?”
    “…I guess.”
    “Well, stop just staring at me!”
    “Ah--! It’s just that, your cheeks—“
    “What’s wrong with them? And that wasn’t a cue to start grinning!”
    “They’re just a little red, is all.”
    “Well it’s COLD.”
    “It shouldn’t be, with that much blood rushing to them.”
    “Your face usually feels warm when you blush, right?”
    “Don’t flatter yourself!”
    “Oh, it’s getting worse now.”
    “Hahaha. Don’t fall behind, Gokudera!”

    And Yamamoto was off, hand to the hilt of his katana, the sputtering time-bomb of his red-faced partner following in his footstep’s near-wake.

    The target wouldn’t be far now. It had been their job to infiltrate and apprehend—

    “H-hibari?” Yamamoto’s skidding footsteps, halting, Gokudera smashing into his back a few seconds later, and the overall atmosphere of bumbling confusion on their parts did not have Hibari smiling.

    Then again, few things did.

    “Late. The target has been taken care of.”

    “BY YOU? But that was our job—“

    Hibari tapped the headset on his ears, and gave them the cold shoulder, more interested in his tonfas than in their outrage.


    Gokudera stiffened a little, and Yamamoto actually looked more surprised than he had a moment ago when Gokudera’s forehead had gotten too personal with his solar plexus.

    “Ah, we forgot again. The headsets were on…”

    Tsuna’s voice crackled over the intercom a moment later, sheepish, laced with something that might have been old, concealed laughter. “Sorry, Yamamoto, Gokudera. When we heard you two were arguing again, we thought it might be best to just appeal to Hibari-san to finish the job…”

    “…This is all your fault, Takeshi.”
    “Baseball idiot…?”
    Ahahaha! They keep pairing us up for the comic relief, Gokudera!”

    Title: It’s A Small World
    Rating: PG
    Pairing: X+S, Belphagor – Lucky Chrams, LussuriaxMop, MarmonxSqualo’s Cash
    Warnings: Violence against breakfast cereal
    Summary: [Prompt and Request by [info]hehe_05]. Varia in Disney World. Enough said.

    Belphagor had been furious. His unique, off-kilter brand of rage had been put on display, parading around Squalo’s life demandingly, pay attention to me, the Prince is displeased~, sulking and biting and whining, and generally being a ROYAL pain in the ass. His brooding was evident from the first moment of every morning, and nagged at him until evening.

    One of the more unique examples of this altered behaviour was the new manner in which Bel had taken to stirring his breakfast cereal, somehow appeased by moving the spoon in such a way that it gutted the bowl, violent churning while he made quiet, hissing noises, lucky charms spilling over the sides in a messy milk-splatter. More ended up on the table than down his throat, and Lussuria would sigh and make bedroom eyes at the mop wistfully until the Prince was finished with his brutal morning meal. Metaphorically speaking, that had the potential to be not good in the very near future, but Squalo curbed his concern with satisfying daydreams of shoving that cereal box right up Belphagor’s--…

    Perhaps Squalo would have pitied the Ripper Prince’s next victim, be it a mafia brat, or Levi’s Cinnamon Toast Crunch, if he wasn’t too preoccupied with self-pity. His lack of sympathy for Bel wasn’t quite a leap of the imagination, considering what exactly the spoiled little monster had decided to throw his epic temper tantrum over. Of all the STUPID REAAASONS…

    Enough was enough.

    When Squalo had found his bed pillows torn down the middle, stuffing seeping out in a strange parody of horror, knife wounds on cotton, he’d had just about had it.

    “UOOOOI! It’s not a real Magic Kingdom, brat!”

    Belphagor poked his head in, quirked it slightly. “Oh?” Seemed to mull that over for a moment, before his lips twitched into a pointy grin. “But Squalo~ the pamphlet said—“


    Once again, Belphagor considered this. And then, apparently, deigned to give royal pardon, fake castles and phony Magic Kingdoms not being nearly as interesting as they had been five minutes ago, when they were real. “Ushishi~ sorry about the pillows~”

    It was the least sincere apology Squalo had ever heard.

    And it was of no comfort.

    It did not bring back his Venetian embroidered pillows, that he’d consequently had to pay Marmon up the whazoo for, and it didn’t make this mission any less reeeeeetarded.

    DISNEY WORLD? Boss must be LOSING IT.

    But not a week later, Boss was there with him, very serious and half-sane, which was just the quota requirement for the Varia. His Boss’ relative mental health also wasn’t much of a comfort to Squalo, who clutched a falafel in whitening knuckles, a camera slung awkwardly around his neck, and a pair of god damn mouse ears sitting proud atop his head.

    Xanxus smiled, just the very shadow of one, easy to miss. “Trash…”

    “WHAT?” Shot his subordinate, snappy, grump just molting from his voice.

    Xanxus lifted a brow, short burst of amusement, before he corrected, “I wasn’t addressing you. Over there—the trash, if you don’t plan on finishing that.” However unholy-mighty Squalo’s skill with a blade, it would be more difficult for him to wield it with sticky, occupied fingers…

    As Squalo stomped off, a great, huffy leather-clad freak in the irritatingly cheerful Florida sunshine, Xanxus curbed his delight in Squalo’s displeasure, and scanned the crowd, focusing on the task ahead.

    It was nearly time for the parade. Small children clung like leeches to their mothers, or sat atop their father’s shoulders, all bearing wide, cotton candy smiles. …Hn. America, a breeding ground for Garbage, and Walt Disney World, the capital dumpster that all of its pitiful flies were attracted to. (Xanxus wasn’t much for theme parks. Nor was he much of a people person. He also disliked parades. And children. And music. Especially music. In theme parks, with kids watching parades. But their victory would make the entire ordeal worth the trip—as would the hotel room later, where he had a fine stock of crystal glasses just preening to be lobbed at Squalo’s frontal lobe. Always his favourite form of stress relief, playing catch with heads.)

    The music drummed up then, band coming around the bend, signaling the beginning of the assignment. The Varia’s reason for being here. Which was well enough, because as Squalo made his way back, with a clear expression of ‘Remind-me-why-we’re-here-oh-wait-you-didn’t-tell-me-to-begin-with’, Xanxus was able to lift a lazy hand, pointing.

    Oh, but there was venom in his eyes now, as Squalo followed the direction of his pointer finger, eagerly, all the way over to… “Heey. It’s Snow White.”

    “Kill her.”

    “…What the hell? Boss?”

    “Do I need to repeat my orders?”

    No, he didn’t. Squalo peeked again, a lady in costume, a wide yellow skirt, and one prissy, gelatinous hair-do. That was their target?

    “Heeey, what the fuck, she doesn’t look that dangerous to me…” Best to know ahead of time if there was something he should be watching out for, though he was convinced whatever Snow White had up her sleeve wouldn’t phase him. Even if the bitch had grenades, he wasn’t worried about getting the job done… just, best to know, that’s all. There was a reason Xanxus had chosen his best man for the task, and that reason was--

    “I dislike that movie.”

    A blink. A pause. Wait…



    “You heard me, Squalo. Eliminate her. I –dislike- Snow White.”

    Another pause. Xanxus’ gaze shifted, and solemn eyes dared Squalo to question him again.

    The swordsman shifted, snorted, and then turned his back. Fucking fine. So they were at Disney World to kill some chick in a costume because Xanxus had childhood issues… tch, this was Belphagor’s kind of thing, why hadn’t he been the one invited along, after all?

    As if a mind reader, Xanxus’ shadowy voice replied, low, “It would be a waste for Belphagor to get rid of Aurora as well. You know his penchant for tiara-envy. It would have been too messy.”

    Tch. Like this wasn’t messy already?

    “Oooi, I bet you just liked Sleeping Beauty.” Muttered, under his breath, before footfalls took him fast away from Xanxus, heading for the thrill of the parade, to assassinate Snow White, and maybe take out a few dwarfs, if they got in the way.

    Xanxus, meanwhile, boomed with laughter.

    Squalo still had the mouse ears on, after all.

    Summary: [For [info]islanderfan2] Part I in a series of ‘childhood vignettes’. Features short, connective situations with characters as children. You can feel free to guess at their ages! :D The characters included are – Hibari, Tsuna, Gokudera, Belphagor, Yamamoto, Lussuria, in that order.

    Bambino Anziano

    Maybe a child with old eyes is no child at all.

    But then, Hibari Kyoya had never been very interested in being a child. It was a noisy, wicked affair, and he cringed away from it, putting himself outside the laws of age and their inferior concepts of time. He might be ten, or six, or fifty-two, and it hardly mattered.

    He’d never stuck a crayon up his nose, or glued macaroni to a paper pate, or wondered what he’d be in the future, because he wasn’t a child. He was Hibari, and in the future, he’d be the same Hibari he was now.

    To other people, he looked like a child. Undersized, scraggly boy that had been forced into a sweater vest by a loving relative, his hair neatly combed, and his hands free of the tell-tale signs of sandbox tomfoolery. Schoolboy, wearing a chubby frown that seemed a pout, with his narrowed eyes and his harmless fists, very much like he was ten, and not fifty-two.

    That was their mistake.

    Delinquents were ageless too, he’d learned. The simpletons in his classes that put gum under the seats were the same people who robbed stores when they grew big, and since there was no such thing as age-and-time, Delinquents were just Delinquents, all the same, and Hibari was fifty-two. Hibari was fifty-two-and-ten, and he was a carnivore. So he wouldn’t stand behind the shield of age and wait to get older before gnashing his teeth (a few of which had come suspiciously loose, recently.)

    They’d laughed when he told them, very clearly, that crowds were bothersome, stepping up in front of the wounded bird, a motley little creature with a broken wing, who probably didn’t appreciate the pebbles being tossed at it.

    The group of older-boys (but Hibari didn’t really take in that they were older; just nosier) had chuckled at him (which he registered as becoming louder; boo… how annoying…) and mentioned that playground heroes were stupid, and that he didn’t have any weapons, anyway. Not even his hands looked like weapons, too small.

    Oh well. …Then I’ll just bite you to death.

    It had taken about five minutes. Five minutes of biting into the loudest boy’s arm, which might have also been the biggest boy (who knew, who cared?) before they’d retreated, bunch of herbivoves, one blubbering over a little bit of blood.

    Hibari’s mouth had a metallic tang to it as he knelt, staring at the bird curiously, moving his tongue to wiggle at his now-looser tooth. It was uncomfortable, but he wasn’t quite paying attention.

    The bird, freed of its bullying, stared back.

    And then, deep in its throat, it made a furrowing sound. Wao.

    Hibari blinked. “Wao…?” Hm. Taking a breath, he repeated, more clearly, “Wao.”


    He could grow up later. For now, this was more interesting.

    Nessun Buon Figlio

    For now, this was more interesting. Way more interesting than the picnic spread, or the butterflies, or the bark of a nearby dog.

    The child gurgled, plump fingers gripping at the chain with curious gusto.

    Voices flew over his head, but their unimportant, friendly words went ignored. Nothing was as alluring to Tsuna right now as the manner in which the toy glinted prettily, cold silver seeming to emanate sunshine itself, tickling his skin with heat.

    Not even when mother shooed him kindly did he loosen his grip, wide, tawny eyes like-his-father’s drawn to the glow of his new playmate.

    “Tsu-kun seems to like it.”

    And be it because he’d just learned he could slip a finger, two even, through the sweet little ring, or rather because he recognized his name, ‘Tsu-kun’, the boy gave a proud, bashful giggle, smiling a gummy smile.

    “Ah, and look. It fits his hand.” The old man shifted, and Tsu-kun bristled, seeming to have forgotten that the comfortable seat of his lap was so mobile. A soft blink from the infant cued the old man to lean down, asking the boy intimately, words just as warm as the ring Tsuna had waggled his clutching fingers through, “How about it, boy…?”

    “…Do you want to be the next owner of that ring, Tsuna?”

    To the sound of a good-natured laugh, Tsu-kun began to wail.

    Vongola the Ninth’s mustache tickled his baby’s skin too close to his ear, prickling awkwardly as he spoke. The needling sensation had the boy’s attention jerking away from his shiny plaything, and onto his new discomfort.

    Chain falling away from fidgeting hands, Tsuna pulling too hard to try to escape the ring, his fingers stuck, and that was painful too, so his free hand went to claw the air for Maman. To the scent of sunshine and picnics and Italian cologne, his nose sniffled, wet, whimpering sounds blubbering forth from his throat.

    “It seems that the answer is no.”

    It would be a long time before he slipped his finger through the shiny again, though perhaps in the future, he’d handle it even less maturely. For now…

    Maman clucked her tongue and tried to rock him.

    “Oh, Tsu-kun, it’s a good thing we brought along the butter, or else your hand would be stuck like that.”

    Tears streaked his face.

    Il Ragazzo Di Musica

    Tears streaked his face.

    Knees drawn to his chest, tie long since loosened and disgruntled across his collar, light hair tickling his knees in a gesture of small comfort. He’d been sitting diligently on the long, lacquered black bench for hours now, backside having gone numb, nails leaving half-moons in his calves from clutching.

    The room was distressingly silent. It was only his sniffling, and that was a shameful music, or so Madre had told him. ‘Big boys should not cry’, she’d scolded.

    But Hayato was not a big boy yet, and Madre was not his Kaa-san.

    Not a big boy, but he’d become bigger today. Happy birthday, but no one came. No brightly coloured box. Sometimes, he remembered the pretty boxes more clearly than he did her face. Blue paper and pink ribbon. But no box this year, never-ever again. Why not?

    He could remember sitting in her lap, remember the dresses she wore. They were starchy, and they billowed, flowing with ruffles, like her hair fell too, both curling delicately. Like a doll, as he’d seen Bianchi-sorella’s dolls, all in lovely dresses, and Madre was just like that…

    Only but, he was warned not to call her Madre anymore. She told him that lightly, while she placed his hands on the keys and pressed down, making a sweet sound, almost as clear and soothing as her voice. ‘You mustn’t say that anymore. You’ll upset the lady of the house, Hayato.’ ‘But Madre--’ ‘Kaa-san. It means just the same as Madre. It’s Japanese, sweet one.’

    And it will be our secret.

    He’d practiced pronouncing it.

    Kaa-san… Kaa-san… Kaa-san…

    She smiled when he played, laughed at his own excitement over his natural skill, was proud herself as she brushed back his pesky hair and clipped it away, promising—‘If you play very often Hayato, I will be playing too, and it will be as if we were playing together, just like right now.’

    That had enticed him most of all, and if he played the music very well, his memory might become sharper, for a song. He’d practiced, playing and pronouncing, and trying to recall.

    Maybe she’d had a hard time remembering his face, too?

    Had she forgotten? Kaa-san, you forgot…?

    She’d promised they’d be together, every time he grew bigger.

    She’d promised to buy him a present.

    I Due Principi

    She’d promised to buy him a present.

    Best present in the entire whole wide world, best-best, because he was the best, he was Prince, and nothing was better than Princes, who deserved the very best.

    Little Prince, he’d read in storybooks all about his breed. Regal-regal, Petty-Pretty-Princes, frogs and warriors and sons-of-heaven with hands-of-hell. Of Princes in fairy tales and history and his own head, aren’ttheyallthesamething, ushishi~?, Princes write history, because facts don’t matter when you’re royal, we can make our own, and you have-to have-to believe us, or we’ll claw into your villages with the power of earth and God and our blood. Princes, who wielded gross amounts of power, who invaded borders because silly lines on a map don’t matter toaPrince, whose displeasure made heads roll, who kidnapped pretty girls on horseback, and who demanded tribute to curb their violence.

    He and his brother were given tribute, same as any Prince. Expensive things that they challenged one another to break, sitting behind the hedges, covered in mud, beating tiny fists into the faces of dolls, scratching tattered nails against leathery playing-balls, gnashing their teeth against the fabrics of new shirts. Ushishi~ tastes like silk and feels like dirt, and shines on, because Princesalwaysshine.

    When they spoke to one another about how they’d stuck a needle in the maid’s cushion, they imagined her dyingdyingdead, because their porridge had been cold yesterday, and they didn’t like their porridge anyway, but serving something notgoodenough for a Prince was a bad-bad crime, and in their minds, they tossed her body into the murky-lake and she was never heard from again. The porridge was cold, you should be punished~

    Drowning in one-hundred thousand ideas, so she drowned there, many people drowningdead in their minds, because I am a Prince, and I demand tribute and battle, and I will make all of my subjects unhappy, ushishi fun game, taxes and scandal and no one wins but us. Everyone gets to play my subject, our subjects, less-than-Princes, make them sweat and bow, because Princes are negligent with their dolls, and greedy with them, and I want it it’s MINE, come amuse me, off with her head if not. A Prince’s favourite game is when they drowned, or paid tribute.

    She’d promised him the best-best present in the whole-wide-world, and it was a present fit for a Prince.

    He’d heard whispers though, because everyone whispered in this little boy’s mind, no-one mattered enough for volume, so they whispered in their doll voices that his brother had received a gift fit-for-a-King.

    Older bother, one-day King, fake-Prince. Echo of Princes, fake-fake-fake, not a real Prince. A to-be-King, which wasn’t a Prince, and wasn’t a King, and wasn’t anything at all.


    His eyes stayed rooted to the curve of the jeweled dagger in its bed of tissue paper, his fit-for-a-Prince gift, and he thought that he would be very-very kind to his brother, because he was a good and fair and just Prince sometimes, so he would lodge it very-very deep into his heart one day, fit-for-a-Prince, deep down in brother future-King’s heart, and he could be a Prince forever, a fairy tale, a fact that could change as he pleased, based on whatever game they were playing.

    Just like the violence in his head. Bury him in the river. Bury him in a book. Bury him in history, as a Prince, before he buries you, as a King~


    Playing Princes forever.

    What a fun game.

    Il Buon Figlio

    What a fun game!

    Takeshi’s legs dangled from the chair, rocking energetically against the air. The tips of his toes almost reached the floor now, long-legs for a young-boy, and they were great for basketball, but just as good for running. Just as good for becoming baseball-legs.

    Dirt spots and juicy smears of green-grass stained the whites of his uniform pants, and he quietly lamented that he would have to enter the tub soon. He liked smelling like this, the scent of sweat and glove leather and the outdoors.

    Because it was such a good game today, because he’d hit the winning home run (CRACK, the sound of the bat against the ball, and it just flew on, into forever, and he ran in time with its flight, and it felt just like flying too, haha), Dad had said he could eat before his bath, much to the delight of his gurgling stomach. His favourites, too, sweet egg rolled up in sticky rice and strawberry milk, and it was a good day, and baseball was a good game.

    Takeshi didn’t think he was a very creative kid. He liked running, and he liked Dad’s sushi, and he liked smelling bad, ha-ha-ha, liked laughing too, and that was all pretty normal, wasn’t it?

    But he liked most of all when Dad smiled like he was smiling right now, when he pressed a plate in front of him an told him to eat up. Takeshi’s old man-- who didn’t have a single gray hair on his head, but he seemed very… tall, and they called it ‘growing up’, so old people must be tall, right? (Haha, maybe he wasn’t a very bright kid, either.) Anyway, Takeshi’s old man, who’d put his hands over his son’s, and showed him how to swing a bat, how to go through the motion, how to hit the ball, Takeshi’s old man when he smiled like that.

    Takeshi was a pretty normal, good, lively kid. He followed rules and grinned a lot, was popular with the kids his age because he hit balls and dived into mud better than anyone, was popular with adults because he held doors and carried tea trays, was popular in general, because he was always smiling, and people smiled back.

    But he knew, when his dad smiled at him like that, that the old man was smiling not because Takeshi was a good kid, but because Takeshi was just his kid. His uncreative, not-so-bright kid, who reeked and grinned about nothing.

    When he hit that home run, everyone was happy, because they liked baseball, and victory.

    It would be the best though, he thought, if one day he found people who hated baseball, and who smiled when he hit a home run anyway, because they liked Takeshi.


    Maybe he really was just unintelligent, but…

    Finding someone out there who didn’t like baseball?

    Haha. Impossible!

    It was the best.

    Uomo Dispari

    It was the best.

    The absolute best shade he’d ever seen. The bottle called the colour ‘Harlequin’. Somewhere between Yellow and Hunter, and that sent a thrill down his spine, shivering over his body, made his eyes widen, and gave him nerve. Ohh~ A little sunshine for the morning, and a little executioner before lights out, and put them together in a bottle, and you got Harlequin Green, which was the hair colour he was absolutely born for, if not with.

    Once he had his new hair, the dye having left the strands brittle and smelling of peroxide, he had other plans, other fantasies to fulfill, so he could embrace a colour so diverse and bright. Harlequin, Harlequin…

    Daydreams of breaking into Mother’s makeup drawer would soon be a satisfying reality. Smearing the liquids and sticks of colour across his face, to complement and accentuate the greatness of his new head. He’d play in the playground that had always been off limits, dipping his fingers in and cracking open tops. He’d blend the reds across his cheeks, and use glitter on his eyelids, and he wouldn’t regret a single thing, since Mother didn’t ever use her makeup to its full potential, the potential he saw in those glossy cases.

    If that woman had green hair, hers would be Myrtle. Between Mould-green and Office-green, age marks and slog.

    But Lussuria was undoubtedly fabulous, even if his roots were buried in dirt. Light-blond dirt, if he were talking about hair roots. He just had to take the final step. Intimidating… thrilling final step. Curiosity burned his bones, and lashed at panic. Do it.

    Hands twitched, sweaty palms, gripping at the slim bottle of dye. A stolen five dollars to purchase it, and it rested with the weight of the future against his skin. Sighingly. He felt sick with nerves. But, couldn’t turn back now…

    He popped the cap, and reassured himself, staring back at a reflection of a thin face and wavy blond hair, a little-boy-face even if he thought he’d always had much more maturity to him, barely making it over the sink, his age hardly greater than his number of fingertips, at least, he assured himself, tonight, when he sat down in the livingroom floor with his nose close to the glass of the television, watching the news play over the fuzzy grains of bad reception, with Harlequin hair and make-up to match…

    At least for one night of his life, Father would have something better to wonder about than why his face took on an alien, crawling smile as he watched the body bags inch across the screen, imagining, imagining and hoping to catch a glimpse.

    Death was such a grand concept, so much bigger than him and everyone. Death must be the most wonderful make-up of all. He was sure he’d have a crush on something so beautiful and delicate as a body perfectly preserved in the troughs of death.

    So he wanted to look his best tonight, for those body bags, his puppy crush.

    Biting his lip, he squeezed.

    Haha, I hope this isn’t too much writing spam for everyone, and that someone got enjoyment out of it. &hearts :D

  • Tips To Remove Unwanted Hair
  • For do-it-yourselfers, a variety of home-use hair removal products are available over the counter. These include shaving creams, foams, and gels; waxes; chemical depilatories; and electrolysis devices. Professionals at beauty and skin care salons and in dermatologists' offices provide waxing, electrolysis, and, most recently, laser treatments to remove hair. The cost, safety, effectiveness, and ease of use of the various methods, as well as the area and amount of hair growth to be treated, are some factors to weigh in choosing a method and deciding whether to go to a professional. Often, different methods are better suited for different areas. Upper lip ??“ Waxing your upper lip can sometimes cause sore, red blotchy mustache. Try using mild bleach instead of waxing. They are available at drug stores but make sure you test them on your skin before putting it on your face. It may cause irritation. Legs ??“ There are many ways to remove hair from your legs. You can wax them or apply ready hair remover cream. Another way is shaving your hair. But make sure to put a thick layer of either soap or shaving cream. Then moisturize it well after shaving. WAXING History records ancient Egyptian and Arab civilizations using sugar, honey and lime syrup to strip off body hair and even parlours today, practice this ubiquitous technique of hair removal. Advantages It's economical, so I still recommend this method. Secondly, it pulls out hair from the roots, so the regrowth time is reasonably long (4 weeks or more). SHAVING Marketing terms and tactics: A shaving system is a non-disposable handle that uses replaceable blade cartridges. A disposable razor, as the name suggests, is an inexpensive razor designed to be thrown out when the blade gets dull. A saftey razor is a double-blade razor designed to reduce the likelihood of nicks or cuts. Hair Removal Creams: These creams are manufactured in such a way that they dissolve the hair. These creams have an ingredient called keratolytic that will damage the skin if it is left on for a long time. Use a patch test the first time you are using a cream. But there is no doubt that they make the skin hair free, smooth and soft. Sugaring: This technique is similar to waxing. Here the removal solution is warmed and then applied on the area required with the help of a palette knife. The solution is applied in the direction of the hair growth. Then a cotton strip is used to cover the solution and torn away in the opposite direction and thus the hair is removed. Hair re-growth takes about six to eight weeks and it is fine. Electrolysis is a method where is only used most effectively by professionals ??“ even though you can buy the Electrolysis devices to use at home. Laser also is a much easier method for permanent hair removal of any body or facial hair, and is becomign more and more common. The process of electrolysis is made by removing hairs one by one by sending the electrical currents to the follicule of hair. It is the new method todestroy groups of follicules of hair in a sending of the electricalcurrent. The laser destroys hair only when it takes place the phase ofanagen or the phase of growth. The hard phase of anagen during a certainnumber of years and roughly 80 percent of hair of bodies take place in this phase.
