𝓛𝓪𝓭𝔂 𝓞𝓯 𝓛𝓲𝓰𝓱𝓽

It has been 10 days since I had been thrown down here and forgotten about. I know because I kept a tally with a mark for each day, five days at a time. I can see a sliver of light out of the far, upper corner when the sun is out, but I don't dare venture there. I can see his hand sticking out of the shadows. There's also an awful stench of decay. It is hotter than hell in here, plus I'm surprised I'm still sane. The noises I hear from above have me wanting to just give up. But I can't. That is not a possibility. The...

Light within

TW: attempted suicide It was summer 2001, we found out, despite the cheerful nature I had, and the sunscreen in my pocket I couldn’t contain the sunlight, you see the irony?, cheerful people are supposed to love the sun, people who carry sunscreen are supposed to have a little hope when it comes to sunbathing, but I had all those things and yet I was burned, it was like each time I decide to step out in the sun, there would be hives on my skin, like my pores open drastically, I don’t know what happens, but when I step ...

The Dawn of Justice

Chapter 1 Before the back becomes so tired, nature never ceases to surprise the one carrying the load by easing it with a lighter one. No matter the difficulty in realizing that what is black is black; honey is honey not sugar, waiting for the day when the ears will only hear, the tongue to say only the exact of what it tasted, the nose to proclaim...

The Joy Mission

THE JOY MISSION Lauryn stood at her kitchen sink, looking out the window, filling the coffee pot with water.  This was the first pot of coffee she and her husband would share in their new home.  Jeff was upstairs getting ready for his first day of work since being transferred for his job at an architecture firm. He would have a long drive into the city so they were both up early.   The sun was just peekin...

Posthumous Memoirs of a Man at the Window

JacobFirst, let me introduce myself. My name is Jacob. It was my first company's party. We rented a house further away from the city to celebrate. At the beginning of the party, I was very nervous because it was on that day that I would tell a girl that I was in love with her. I drank a lot to build up courage, but the only thing that made me want was to go to the bathroom every ten minutes.It was on one of those trips to the bathroom...

The Marrows

“Ready?” Nathan asked his wife. Dawn nodded with a smile and the two walked to the car. Her small baby bump showed even in her thick winter coat. A light snow began to fall from the dark sky as he entered the car.  “I’m excited to meet your family,” Dawn said, putting on her seatbelt. “Oh really?” Nathan began to back out of the driveway and the reality of going back home hit him. “Yeah, really. ...

M.L.5

This is based on the poem ‘Come on, come back’ by Stevie Smith. It was actually a piece of work I did for school, I just extended it. The poem itself is more from the perspective of the girl so this is from the point of view of the enemy sentinel. I recommend reading the poem before reading this. I’ll post it in a comment below in case you don’t want to try find it but it is pretty easy to find. Also, I know it doesn't...

Pinot Noir and a Lonely Boudoir

A few words! Hi there and welcome back to my channel! Just kidding. But honestly, I'm so glad you're here, reading this story. A word of caution: this story is mildly sexual in nature. If you read my last piece, well...this one is absolutely nothing like it, which is what I enjoy so far about Reedsy Prompts. I'm able to tell all of these different, unique stories. It's pretty rad. ...

But today , today is different , today is launch day , a few years back Nasa launched a program to get people into Mars's orbit and well being a trained airforce pilot and an engineer I was among the crew chosen to go to Mars , that's why today...

A New Beginning

Trigger warning: rape   The silence beneath the glaring yet pleasant Sun reminded him of a time long, long ago. It was a time riddled with nothing but the scent of blood; sometimes sweet, sometimes bitter. It was in that time he made his first kill. The man was a soldier, simply performing his duty. He must have had mouths to feed. So was it right? “Yes.” Caesar unconsciously whispered to himself. Those who inflict pain without cause lose the right to live. This tender quie...

A Two Day Snow

Michael watched as Scott walked up through the thickening snowstorm. Already the snow was starting to pile up on the old stone walls surrounding the Arboretum and was giving the grass a serious dusting. Michael hoped everything had gone well with Scott's trip down to South Campus.            "Take your shoes off out in the hall Scotty-Boy!" Michael yelled as the door opened.             "Yes, sir!"...

A journey of no return

Your palms are sweaty. A nervous tic is pulsating in your temple, and you can almost see it in in the corner of your right eye. “God! Oh, dear God! Why me!?” But no one can here you. “Hurry up! They are coming! - Are you coming?! Hurry!!” It’s hot, it’s humid. “Don’t switch on the lights!” You are crawling around the room, seeing with your hands, with your fingers. Your trembling fingers are pull...

Demons or Politicians?

Sometimes, I feel like the Universe just wants to toy with me. Every single night that electricity goes out, I always wake up a few seconds before the lights cut off. It's not like you can say that the fan stopped and I got up cause I was feeling hot. NO, I wake up before the fan cuts off and things go black. It's so annoying. I always imagine a scenario where like some random serial k...

Uncultured

Spoons and forks were hanging Midair, Sara, observant enough, joined the rail and halted her salad fork a little away from her mouth. Abhinav’s grandmother was glaring at Mrs. Rai, with her wide aged eyes while narrowing the corner of her wrinkled lips. Seema was sighing in despair. Abhinav, sitting beside Sara, was clenching his fingers around the desert spoon, staring sternly at the vanilla pastries. But Mrs. Rai, unaffected by frowning brows and clenching jaws, focused on her Italian palate. There remained a grave silence on the dinner...

Mistakes made by teenage girls...

What are the ten mistakes which I have made? Have I even made any? Who knows, maybe I could think about them! Besides, if you want to expose me then I guess I have no option Firstly, what everyone should know not to do is make weird combos of food. Like that one time I tried eating pizza and yogurt. I could taste something so salty that it felt like I would have to spit it out. At the same time I had something so...
