Diamonds

She prepares herself in the only way she knows to prepare. It is just another performance. Not on a stage but in front of a court of law. Does it really matter ? a public appearance is a public appearance. Time took his toll on her. She never thought she was pretty, but now she feels old too. She wraps the towel around her head like a scarf and looks at the mirror. For a second she feels like her grandmother is looking at her from behind the looking glass. She never met her. She only knows what she looked like from some old pictures, kept in a box in the attic of her family's house in Johannesburg. Her father arrived to South Africa at a young age with nothing but the belief that his skills will serve him better there, than in the small town in Lithuania that he came from. He was right, of course. He had to work hard and take enormous risks for almost every day of his life, but that was exactly what he wanted. Her mother died when she was little, and so her father was the dominant figure in her life. Back in 1966, when Bat Sheva asked her what does she think they should do about the deteriorating relationships inside the dance company, if she really knew what had to be done, it was less due to her experience as a dancer and more from being the daughter of a miner. That was the moment that their special friendship and partnership was born. A partnership of two women who wanted to create something new. To dare taking the risks involved, but in a responsible and methodical manner. They were going to mine for talent and creativity, just like diamonds are mined, and then they were going to polish everything to perfection. This was what she dreamed of doing for many years, and that was her big chance. She puts her makeup on. Everything must be in perfect order like always. Now Bat Sheva is gone, and it is only her, struggling to save what they both wanted so strongly. The question if it worth the effort, does not even cross her mind.

@timeturnerjones I was going to make a similar comment: I'm able to move from the makeup, to the mirror, to the history, back to the present pretty seamlessly.
I like the way you build the background here, interwoven with her getting ready to go to her next public appearance. It felt really smooth in all the different transitions.

Jungkook No Longer Baby Boy (+19)
Que tal peeps! WE ARE STILL COUNTING DOWN TO JUNGKOOK'S BIRTHDAY IN THE AMS COMMUNITY. THIS IS A QUICK FANFICTION THAT CONTAINS MATURE CONTENT! Jungkook has always been like a little brother to you and you always looked after him, especially when the guys picked in him. You were planning a special birthday surprise for him with the guys. "He should be happy he gets a cake." Yoongi scuffed. "Well well now lets not be too mean Yoongi...he is the youngest." I said while writing down ideas. You and the guys came up with a plan. You and Jin would bake a cake and cook food. Hobi and Tae would clean up while Namjoon and Yoongi decorated. "Namjoon please don't break anything." Hobi laughed. Namjoon rolled his eyes and laughed. The next day it was super hot in the office and all you wanted to fo was take a shower. You rushed home and jumped into the shower. Jin would be shopping for food with Namjoon while the others bought decorations. Jungkook would be at the library volunteering so everything should be finished then. The water felt so good as you allowed it to hit your skin. You had your relaxing body wash. You inhaled the lavender scent and lathered up your body sponge. You began cleaning and singing when you seen a pair of eyes looking in the small crack of the door. You paused thinking you seen something else. You didn't know if your mind was playing tricks on you. Then you looked back and no one was there. You finisjef showering and walked down to your room. You noticed Jungkook's door was cracked. This was strange cuz he always locks his door. You pay no mind and get dressed. The crew arrived and you all get to preparing the surprise birthday for Jungkook. You were pleased how everything played out. Namjoon only broke 3 things which is good. You walked to your room to get an extra present you brought for Jungkook when you noticed your pantry drawer was opened. Your neatly arranged panties were all a mess. You picked up the present wrapped in shiny red wrapper and seen that Jungkook's door was cracked wider. You walked down the hall and heard odd noises. "Yass gosh noona..." You peeped your head in without makjng a sound and saw Jungkook with your panties in his hand. He was licking a pink pair with a red pair wrapped around his man hood. Jungkook was stroking himself. You found yourself shook for a moment. But then you began watching out of enjoyment. Your breathing goth heavier. Jungkook slowly his hand motion and grinned. "I know you are watching me noona." You covered ur mouth. But a gasp escaped ur wet lips. "Jungkook why do you have my panties? "Noona you know I want you. I made that clear last week when I spanked the hell out of you. Remember you made me promise not to tell." You walked into his room and closed the door. "Shh boy that was a mistake." "A mistake?" Jungkook said while raising his eyebrow. He smiled while looking at the gift I had. "Nice wrapping but do you know what I really want noona?" Jungkook smirked. Jungkook walked closer to be still hard as a brick and stood behind me allowing his hard on to rub between by cheeks. He let out a groan. "I know you been with all the guys nonna, they brag about it. I want you now." Jungkook said. "Jungkook...look those days are behind me. I'm no longer group banging trash." "Okay I will just spread the word at work." Jungkook laughed. "Fine Jungkook." I hissed. Jungkook pushed me on my stomach while sliding my shorts to the side. He was happy to see I had in no panties. He stuffed a pair or my panties he had in my mouth and plunged deep inside me without mercy. The pink wet panties muffled my scream of pleasure. Jungkook pounded me hard and fast. "Noona you were all wet from watching me?" Jungkook smacked my butt hard. "ANSWER me. You like watching me wack off?" I nodded as he pulled me hard into him. He switched so we were facing the mirror and began pounding me hard hitting all my spots. "Look at that little face. You love it noona. Yoongi said you like it rough." I surprised Jungkook and pusjed him back on his butt. I climbed on top of him. "You gotta do more to get me off little baby boy." I said while grinning. I began riding him hard and fast while pulling his hair. He began sucking my right breast as I rode him. "Yass that's a good baby boy." I moaned. I could see he was coming to the edge and so was I. The room echoed of slapping skin. "Noona yasss! Oh shit!" Jungkook moaned while exploded in me. The explosion made me go over the edge. My vision was so blurry. Suddenly the crew busted in "Happy Birthday Jungkook!" "Shit looks like we got to the party late." Yoongi blurted.

Best K-pop Dancers (Personal Opinion)
There is different types of dancers out there that would catch your attention by a blink. We all know that dancing is a universal thing so why not talk about some great dancers out there. I got inspired to make this card by @kpopandkimchi because ever since I can remember I've always loved to dance. I guess it runs in the family because my parents actually met at a dance! Haha Anyways... I'm getting off topic! So, I decided to show you a few of my favorite Kpop dancers followed with a short video of their dancing skills. P.S. I think T.O.P in reality is a great dancer! He just likes to tease! Silly Boy! Enjoy! λ‚˜ν•˜μ€ (Na Haeun) At such a young age and so talented! Na Haeun did her first appearance in public at the age of four in a show called 'Star King'. 2 years later at the age of six she made a shocking appearance to the judges with her cute and fierce performance in 'K-Pop Star 4' where she sang "Do You Want to Build a Snowman" & finished her performance with a hip-hop choreography. Shownu Monsta X's leader wow's me with his dancing skills and he got inspired to persuade his dream by no one other than Rain. Rain Known for his dancing and sexy body! haha but guys we have to keep it PG! Kihyun This one's the one that really got me off surprise! After watching this video and some other videos of Kihyun. I honestly did not know he had this in him! His dance style is very charming. I love it!!! Why can't I do the robot! Oh yeah btw where is my manners I forgot to introduce him! This is the cute and charming vocalist from Monsta X Kihyun!! Watch his amazing robot skills guys! Jay Park If you have not or do not know about Jay Park's awesome dancing skills then you are missing out!! Minzy Minzy is one of the few kpop female dancers that I really admire for her dancing skills! If you don't know who Minzy is she is the main dancer in 2NE1. She actually was discovered by YG from her dancing skills on her YouTube channel. Young Bae (Taeyang) Taeyang from Big Bang is a great dancer! It will have all the girls breathless and all the boys fanboying over his dancing skills! THE ARK They are a K-Pop group that have done many dance covers. They caught my attention when they released their first song 'The Light' but then I started realizing they were really good dancers especially in this dance cover shown above. Most of you ARMYs might have seen BTS react to this dance cover before. They are totally amazing especially to be rookies. Jimin & J-Hope One of my ultimate favorite dancers believe it or not! I think more because of their dorkiness but they are also great dancers. Hands down BTS has a great dancing group! JB This Got7's B-Boy skills are just great! Kai Last but not least... I got to admit even though Kai is not my EXO bias he is totally amazing when it comes to dancing! His performance is just so on point that if I get too close it might poke me in the eye! With a great performance technique you can never go wrong in dancing!! It just makes it look so real! Ok! So now a question! Q: In a dance battle who do you think would win out of all these I stated above? Please leave your answers down below! I'm curious to see how many votes each idol gets!! :D @CreeTheOtaku @KeziahWright @TesneemElAlami @KpopGaby @ChavaBerry @MyaIsNotSexy @Ercurrent @ARMYStarlight @4dalientae @monicacerroblan @JustinaNguyen @LiNaHyun @panouvang123 @LateashaChantae @Tigerlily84 @DaisySalazar @emilyanpham14 @momo143kao @StefaniTre @biancadanica98 @WiviDemol @NSSagasshi @AriannaLopez072 @AimeeH @JBrez @CristelaLoz @baileykayleen @Apink8 @Meeshell @thePinkPrincess @MorganElisabeth @VixenViVi
