Breath In

She sat with her belongings stuffed in a bag beside her, swaying gently from side to side with the movement of the train, staring out the window.   The train stops, doors open. The great exchange of people.   Conversations buzz.   Doors close.   Jackline looks out over the city as the train zips along.  A million speckled lights multiplied by the rain droplets building up on th...

The Girl In a Cabin

Hey, my name is Lula Miller. I live in a cabin not far from the castle that Prince Kace and his parents I've never met them but I've seen them around here once or twice. Anyway I never thought I would end up being Kace’s wife but let me tell you how it all started. One normal morning I went on a walk by the castle and I'm guessing Prince Kace was in a rush he came flying out of the gates, Then all of a sudden im on the g...

Death’s Final Meal

TW: Suicide. The day was bright, and slivers of the rising sun peeked through the dirty glass window. The clouds parted, filling the room with gorgeous dawn. Shadows slowly crept back, easing over her meager breakfast. She stared at the food remorsefully, not hungry enough to eat. Ironically, the light stopped at the edge of the table, just before reaching Brie. If it hadn’t hurt so much, she might have laughed at the irony. She was truly a cursed woman, a woman of shadows. The cancer had spread quickly, ensnaring her in its deadly...

The Entertaining Society: Grand Plan

"Josh, you better get off that TV!" Mom yelled, in her usual forced British accent.She was giving this new job thing her all.She had been freshly shipped to Britain by the company she worked for. For my mom, this was all too exciting. I, on the other hand, was trying to fit in. It wasn't easy, being the only African kid. So I began spending my afternoons, in front of a screen. "Okay, bye Oscar," she chirped, exiting. My mom was a beautiful young lady, with kinky long black hair often tied in a bun. Sh...

Empathically Yours

They say your eyes are the windows to your soul. To some extent, I think they are right, whoever “they” are. Allow me to explain.My name is Gadura, and I am what some people call an empath. But I'm not the kind who can feel your feelings when you feel them. I am the kind who can look into your eyes and see everything you have ever done in your life and know how you felt at the time. Believe me, this is a much scarier gift. My job, here in Worthwillow, is to solve mysteries for the local law enforcement. And, as expected,...

Clowns

"Hey John, want to come to my party tonight?" I spun around and saw the popular girl, Stacy waving her hand like a maniac. I give her a unpleasant smile. "I'm good, why dont you invite her?" I pointed at a nerdy girl. You know the stereotype, turtle neck, glasses, freckles, and a bunch of books with her at all times. Stacy gave me a disgusted look. "Yea right, like I'm going to invite that weirdo." I sneered. "Fine, Ill...

A Moment in Time

“Hope you haven’t forgotten about the party?” Taylor asked.“What party?” Rachel asked in return.“Don't tell me you’ve forgotten so soon?”“l can't remember. Please could you remind me?”“The one I told you about holding at Lé Chanteur hotel.”“Oh! Oh! Now I remember. That hotel with palm trees.”“Yeah! It’s coming up In a fortnight time.”“Can I go some other time? I have a project I’m working on. It’s going to take that length of time.”“Come on! It’s taking place on a weekend. Saturday p...

Rules Are There For A Reason

Our examination of the 6 worlds was supposed to be incognito. Our space wheel had reflective technology which cloaked our little home away from home so that we could watch. We were there to secretly monitor the election of the Grand Leader of the Six Worlds, an election that is supposed to occur every 7 years.I was the Commander of that mission: My name is Tom Durfee. With me were my Communications officer Sam Oliver, Staff Lieutenants Martha Bachman and Sally Carty and our morale officer, Satchewon Pillingly.The event that ...

...Somewhere Among The Stars

“If I would’ve known what was coming down the pike, I suppose I wouldn’t have wasted all those days worrying about what was out of my control. Then again, if I had known what was coming, I might have wasted those days more worried than ever. It’s this dichotomy that keeps life rich and interesting. At least for me, anyway. For the rest of humanity, I don’t know what motivates them to keep breathing, keep existing…” ***“That’s enough for today,” I thought to myself as I placed my overly wo...

Wither

‘’The flowers my lord, they have seemed to droop even more so than yesterday.’’‘’Nonsense Vinsel, they seem perkier than ever.’’‘’My lord please, action must be taken, your denial of the flowers Is causing more pain.’’‘’Vinsel please, what else will I do if I don’t deny it.’’‘’Seek help my lord!’’‘’Enough nonsense Vinsel you know nothing can change this, now leave me and the flowers.’’‘’As you wish my lord.’’The slow step...

All for a Lock of Hair

Day 1Noldil blinked his blurry eyes. His head felt like a dragon was chewing on it, pounding with every bite. His eyes finally cleared. He was looking across a cobblestone floor to a cobblestone wall. He pushed himself up to sitting and adjusted his loose, brown robe so he was comfortable. He played with the brown cord at his waist while he looked around.He was in a small, square room. It was lit, so he could see around, but there were no candles, lamps, or any source of light. The room was a perfect cube with no ...

Just Letting Off Some Steam

Let me introduce myself briefly before I begin my story and then I’ll step aside and get out of the way so you can foist all your attention on the two stars of this account. My name is Thoth, and since I have been appointed Lord of Divine Words from the beginning of time by the Creator, any time there is a conflict or argument between the gods, I am beholden to record the battle and bear witness for all to hear. With that out of the way, I shall proceed with a traditional segue, “Once Upon a Time…”The year is 79 A.D., as...

Broad Channel

I have to get out of here.The lights are out. I’m not sure if the subway door will open if I pull on it.Panic. Calm the hell down. That’s panic. I should wait for help.I don’t need to panic because panic doesn’t help anything.No one ever uses Broad Channel station. The most underused station in New York. That's why it's so empty. That's why it's taking awhile.If you panic you won’t make good decisions at all. Be smart.The car just stopped and the lights went out al...

For the Glory of Google

A momentary lapse in attention was all that was needed. Henry took his eyes off the road, to change the song on his stereo, and did not notice that a goat had jumped in front of his car. There was a loud crack as the front bumper shattered on impact and the whole car jumped, as the poor animal got run over by the dark green Subaru Forester.“Shit!” Henry cursed and slammed on the brakes, too late.The car screeched to a stop, the safety belt pressing tight on Henry’s chest and neck.“Shit,” he cursed again, afraid that h...

Vir Rabido

“Man would I kill for some steak right now.” Brutus said as he stretched his arms while exiting his tent. “Would human steak be satisfactory for you?” Canelly shot while cleaning her knife. “If it’s yours then that would be very… very… satisfactory.” Brutus answered pervertedly. “I’m sorry but the only one that’s readily available right now is the Brutus Special.” She said as she threateningly stood up walking towards Brutus. “Alright that’s enough from the two of...

To the Grave

It’s a hot day in May. Flora and me are crammed in my stuffy little bedroom and both precariously perched on the bed. I haven’t unpacked everything yet even though I moved here with Mum over a month ago. I’m rooting around in a box full of stuff I’d forgotten I even had when I hear Flora mumble something under her breath. I’m not even really sure why I invited her over to be honest, I was just grateful she said yes so Mu...

Heaven's Banquet

Warning: This one is rather graphic, and more than a bit gruesome. I’d never realized just how beautiful a soft summer rain can be, despite having seen it hundreds of times in my life. That was the thought that went through my head on a Thursday afternoon, as I lay dying upon the sidewalk after being struck by a car that had skidded out of control. Time seemed to be moving so slowly, and everyth...

Terrible Talent Show

HenryThe party had balloons that’s for sure. They were scattered everywhere across the ballroom and clinged onto the wooden ceiling. They would not let go. Cake was on the table and cake forks were next to them, waiting for a person to pick them up. The toffee cookies were close to it with vanilla icecream and chocolate pudding. I licked my lips when I saw the strawberry tart at the end of the room. I wish I could bite into it, My mouth full of whipped cream and jam… But I know it will be a tough match to get it....

The Fourth Wall Between Us

“Rhys?” There’s a therapist on one side of a quaint, welcoming room strategically designed to illicit feelings of warmth and safety and a young man opposite to her. “I would appreciate if you’d at least try and participate in this exercise with me. I know you don’t want to be here but I say we at least try and make an attempt at progressing the dialogue between us.” She speaks in a motherly tone. Legs crossed, notepad in her lap; glasses resting comfortably on her face. The man’s arms are crossed and he sits slouched on the left ...
