Rays of Hope

The sun fought to enter the room. The windows were shut but the curtains were drawn aside. Sunlight flooded the room, and I stared out of the window, still wrapped in bed. It was early morning after a sleepless night. It had been impossible for me to stop myself from recalling the night exactly ten years ago:I ran and ran, as fast as my little legs could take me. My bag swayed on my back, my ponytail dangled on my head and my eyes were fixed on the road that lay ahead. My heart was thumping in my chest, clearly...

sepositus

"So, are you gonna come or not Jay?" I snapped out of my daze and looked up at Molly. "Sorry, what were you saying?" I asked quietly. She rolled her eyes as though repeating what she said took so much effort.  "Look, I'm throwing a party Friday and your mom asked me to invite you since you're an anti-social disaster." She repeated every word slick with both pity and spite. I looked around sudden...

Something Else

With each passing person, their information blinks in the left corner of my vision. Their names, occupations, home addresses, height, weight, hair and eye color and other things deemed “useful” by Tyrex Industries. I am the last of the Vega-12 experimental program. I am the last Replica. I am an android living in a human's world. Replicas have been declared illegal on Earth. Well they’re illegal outside of Tyrex Industries at least. I escaped weeks ago, I wanted more out of my life. I wasn’t about to be someone’s pl...

Have You Seen Hira?

"So... this conspiracy board. It's really something."Having taken refuge from the torrential summer downpour in the city's only cat cafe, this was the last thing I'd expected to see. I'd just been making friends with a little gray fur ball when I noticed Have you seen Hira? scribbled above a bulletin board on the wall nearby. Toting my little friend along, I went to check it out. News clippings, photos, sticky notes, and even threads of red yarn tacked to different bits of information swallowed up the board. Mor...

Samanta's Birthday

Once upon a time, there was a beautiful woman named Samanta. Samanta was born on October 18, 2003, while now it is October 15, 2020, which means that Samanta will have a birthday in 3 days! 17th birthday! Samanta was very enthusiastic about it. She wanted a very big and luxurious birthday party like a queen. He wants to be celebrated in a 5-star hotel, wants to be driven by a Ferrari, and wants an artist to fill his birt...

The Extinction of Materiality

Today was yet another day filled with the monotony that is life. Awakening to the everlasting cawing of the crows outside his house, Wyatt arose from his elongated slumber to the stabbing light reflecting inwards from his window, immediately going over to shut the blinds, avoiding contact with the outside world at all costs, due to the distinct lack of anything it had given him throughout his depressing monologue of life...

The Town of Juliet

Nestled deep in the Appalachian Mountains lies the quaint, sleepy town of Juliet. Much like any lumber town established in the late 19th century, Juliet is proud to boast of a population of 1,106 (1,107 if you count Natalie Habrook’s new baby). The directions to Juliet are fairly simple, if you dare to brave little-known Highway 17 off I-77. Dozens of travelers unwittingly meet their end on these winding mountain passes ...

Debating my Future

“Please,” begged my mom. “Don't let your father down.” I really didn’t want to give in to him, but the love in my mother’s eyes was too strong to ignore. “Ok, I’ll think about it,” I told her, just to satisfy her. I was pretty sure I wasn’t going to give in, and I disregarded the thought for the remainder of the day. That night was when the nightmares started pouring in. I dreamed that I was put in a dark room and locke...

The King of the North

The sun beat down on his face as he felt the wind whipping through his long, black hair. The rhythmic beating of his horse’s hoofs on the hard ground matched with the pace of his heart as he sped through the countryside, his mind uncharacteristically on distant matters. Tears which pooled in his eyes were quickly dried by the gale, and his scarred hands gripped his steed’s reins with their full strength, turning his knuckles white. He knew the quest he had just undertaken had but one result, and he knew too that there was no other choice ...

Coincidence, I Think Not

The lights on the subway flicker a couple of times until they go off. Silence fills the car until the emergency lights flash on and every single person groans loudly. All showing varying levels of irritation as they shift to find an open seat or just plopping onto the floor disregarding the filth. “Why does this happen every time I decide to take the subway?” Stacy grumbles as she squeezes her eyes shut, rubs he...

The Legend of Marcus Huges

Evil breeds evil.Does the juvenile one have a choice?Marcus Huges, a legend in the city of Dorvan, was a monstrous lore which kept women at home and men less on streets. Yes, you would see little groups of children enacting him and playing around, but only till the adults were back home and the wolves howled.For Zerra it all was partially true. It would be horrible if one makes his or her father sound like a heathen on the street. But here it was, the bare truth, his father was a frightening monster and he ...

Escape from Paradise

Two doors. That’s the first thing I register as I enter the room slowly, and a familiar feeling of uncertainty starts to make it’s presence known in the pit of my stomach. The feeling will spread if I let it, creeping down into my legs to turn my muscles into useless jelly so that I can hardly stand. Then it will move upwards into my chest, constricting my lungs until I have to fight to draw a single breath. It will continue it’s journey upwards, pulling my shoulders and neck tight as though an invisible hand draws a needle and thread thr...

Double Jeopardy

Double Jeopardy Suzanne Marsh My grizzly little story begins with a simple ad in the newspaper: “Wanted head cook experience required.” That wouldn’t work I had no real practical experience; just what my Mother had taught me preferably; not to burn water. I was disparate I need a job NOW. The lease on my apartment was due, I had no income. I decided that I would apply for the job...

The Fatemaker

He is called. Called by the light of the full moon. Called by the trees carrying voices on its leaves. The cries of the hopeless who long for the glimmer of hope to shine upon them, even for a moment. The laughs at those less fortunate, spat out of the mouths of those corrupted and wicked. He is called by some force unknown even to him, and yet he obeys it blindly. He is called now.  Over the fields, ...

Window Epiphany

Sitting by the window side and looking out at The Paradice especially at night has being my only moment of solitude and peace. The Paradice is situated inside the hell of high walls where I stay. I always resonate between these two places. In the day, I am in hell, and at night, I come to my window side to enjoy what it means to be in paradise by gazing at The Paradise. Ten years ago, when I was eight, I was brought fr...

Our Town

The day she arrived the town had an unusual gloom ligenring within it’s horizon. The town was veiled with dark clouds; as if the weather was reflecting people’s emotions itself. We had not been able to grow much crops. The misfits huddled together along the small roads, the misfits moving ever so slowly along the roads as equally gloomy vendors sold goods. She wore a rather extravagant cavalier hat with black eagle feath...

A Chaotic Christmas
