Secrets

Janiss’ phone buzzed and she swatted at it with a growl. “No,” she told it as she stirred in her bed where she’d flopped only moments ago. “Go. Away.” Her phone buzzed again and she slapped her hand onto it, turning it on only to finally silence it. 3 new messages and 1 phone call. All from new numbers. “Hello! It’s nice to meet you!” the first one said. She swiped away the notifications. The others wou...

No Light without Dark

“What can I get you, dear?” I asked the young man who had just sat at a booth alone. “Um.. I’m actually waiting for someone.” he said, glancing out the window. “Cup of coffee, to settle the nerves?” I asked him and the man smiled at me. After settling the man with a cup of coffee, I returned to the counter and began wiping it down. It had been a slow night, just a couple tr...

The New Home

In 2079, living on Earth is no longer easy. This world has seen a lot of catastrophes and chaos that raged a battle between the man and nature. I live in the underground, just like other fellow human beings. It leaves only a few thousand humans alive. It's a prerogative to be alive. I'm just a short, plump waitress with a bob cut that serves food and drinks to the higher officials who stop by, occasionally. Every day, I hear excited jabber on how humans are sent to the Moon as part of the project: The New Home and the curious lifestyle in...

Trust Me

Trust Me Standing on the ledge of the tallest building in the city, Shannon looked out towards the skyline. The orange setting sun was slowly dropping on the horizon as the bright sky slowly dimmed. The cool crisp air grabbed at her from all directions as she stood there rigidly looking straight ahead.  I hate heights, she thought to herself as the sounds of ...

The Man and His Conversation about Death with a Colorful Cat

“I’m confused…” said the man with jet black hair and frown lines around his mouth. “What’s there to be confused about?” asked the cat with fire for eyes and stars for teeth. “Am I dead? Is this…heaven? Or am I somewhere…else?” “Where do you think you are?” mused the cat, licking its paw. With each stroke of its tongue, the fur underneath changed colors, shimmering between shades of black and blue and purple and pink and all other colors the man had seen. “What happened to me?” He was getting...

The Deceit Of Sin

The skyline was unlike any she had ever seen. The sun blazed a brilliant pink and orange-red that seemed to span the length of the universe. Standing at the edge of a long-paved walkway bordered by apple trees, red and pink peonies littered the landscape. The grass was the most captivating shade of green, grown an inch and a half high it swayed like feathers. Walking in disbelief at the beauty of the scene before her. He...

Giant Love

The sands of time ran through the great hourglass and creatures everywhere waited with the static of anticipation charging their souls. In the time betwixt day and night, that magical time known to some as the gloaming, a festival was beginning. Twilight descended and the first star heralded the start of the celebration. It had been a long time in the making and was eagerly awaited by the good and the bad, the ugly and the beautiful, the small and the large of the fairytale kingdom....

Her Rose

Her Rose'The rose withered.Of course it did. I walked over to it to throw the dead thing in the bin. It was.. horrible in a way. It's life, but the fact that you forget about something when it loses its purpose is greedy. It's logical in a way, but maybe something I'll never accept, and follow my own belief of sentiment. I'll throw it away, but won't replace it, maybe then I could forgive myself.I walked over to the bed to fix it. Blankets, pillows, done. Sheets.. I'll wash it anyways ...

But life really knows when to kick you in between the knees doesn’t it?Eddie was on his way to his studio apartment when he noticed the silhouette of a man standing under a tree from the corner of his eye. He heard soft sobbing from his direction. Eddie watched, horror growing, as he threw a rope around its highest branch and tied a loop at the other end. Eddie dashed for his direction and snagged his arm just as he was getting ...

An Unexpected Long-lasting Love

Nights like these are what I live for now. Ever since I got out of the mercenary business I have been seeking reprieve. Here I found it, in the sounds of the sea. The smell of the saltwater is a dream and the sound of the ocean winds are a calming blanket to my tired ears. I sit here on occasion to escape the thoughts of yesterday. "Whoa, what is that?" I exclaim to myself. I'm usually here alone at this time of night. My vision was blurred and foggy, the moon the only light upon the horizon. I had to walk closer to the figure I saw...

Emotional Support Monster

"Why did you give Gertrude the Baker a bat as a familiar?" Esmeralda asked, placing her pointed hat on her desk and leaning back in her chair. Her silvery curls spilled out, framing her sharply featured face. I shrugged and gave her my winning smile. "It was her arms," I said. "They were the flabbiest I'd ever seen and she wouldn't stop waving them around and shrieking in excitement. Boom. Bat familiar, perfect match." A column of swirling smoke rose from her pipe as she held it between her teeth. "It seems you didn't think...

Damn! What a lovely holiday.

December in Motton was a chilly, shivering month. Slough of cold, snow-draped wind gusted dangerously, leaving a blurry, misty ambiance. The road was sheathed with a three-inch high snow floor, deserted, suffused with blobs of faint streetlights that tried to accentuate the obscured beauty of the town. The time was edging past seven-thirty in the evening when Richard Wayne dawdled through the snow-filled road, puffing out a white-blanketed air of disgruntlement. He was clad in a heavy, dark hoodie, and his face was barely perceivab...

New York, Unreal, Surreal and Real

New York, Unreal, Surreal and Real Janet Gilmore [email protected] I think now that because I had a happy childhood, I didn’t recognize betrayal when it happened to me.  Not all  back seat car adventures are fun.  I was in the back seat of a comfortable yellow Chevy Vega. It was my car but I wasn’t driving. He was driving. That is, he was driving me and another woman ba...

Writer's Rage

I just finished the first draft of my novel. Now I have to edit the damn thing. I swear I must have been thinking of five very different plots when I wrote it. I don’t think I can tie them all together this quickly. Honestly. I need a professional editor for this shit. The problem is, I can’t afford one because I haven’t sold any of my writing yet and I’m still living with my parents because I can’t pay for fucking rent.This is extremely frustrating. The character’s name is Sarah in chapters 1-3, but then, for some reaso...

The Christmas Legacy

It was a cold lonely night in the Oakland household. Marian Oakland sat on her living room couch waiting very impatiently on her parents, Abel and Molly Oakland. Ever since December drew nearer her parents have been getting more anxious then ever. Sometimes Marian can even hear her parents say to themselves: "Has it already been 20 years?" And when ever she'd ask her parents what they meant would dismiss it. Until this December 23rd. Two days before Christmas. Marian looked at her parents as they walked into the living room. "Marian," Abe...

Three Way Split

“Why can’t you just leave him?” he asked quickly getting dressed, falling over as he tried to pull his shoes on and his jacket at the same time. “You said he doesn’t care. He’s away a lot of the time with work and leaves you on your own. And in your words ‘the spark is well and truly gone’. She lay back down on the bed and said “I know, and it is”. She lay back on the bed, smoke swirling into the air and bl...

Broken Promises

"Ren! Hey, why didn't you ask me to walk to school today? Woke up late?" I giggled. "Oh, uh, I walked to school with Esther." He pointed to the dark-haired girl sitting next to him. "Oh. That's alright! Are we walking to school tomorrow? Together?" I asked eagerly.Ren looked away and shrugged, then turned away. I gulped and left without saying another word.Ren had been my best friend since 6 years old. He was kind and helped me when nobody else was there for me. He became my first friend in school. We u...

In Plain Sight

She said yes! This is the best day ever! My heart has grown a size and a half since I met Yanah, the love of my life. She came from an abusive relationship with a slime ball named Jake Letterman, alias -- Jake the snake. Tommy is her three-year old son. I’ve accepted him as my own. There’s nothing in the world that I wouldn’t do for either of them. I scooped her up in my arms and spun her around giving her a passionate kiss on the lips. “I love you, Deon!” She hugged me tightly as if...

Just Another Typical Love Story

June 23, 2017 “Hey, Harper?” “Yeah?” “I really, really love you.” Harper turns from where he’s watching the sky and smiles at me. God, he’s gorgeous. He just sits there, grinning, for a few moments before leaning into me and saying, “You too, Therly.” I look back out at the ocean. Waves lap lightly at the peaceful shore. Sunrise is just beginning, staining the horizon ...

Angel Heart

It was gone six when Marie finally finished her shift at the homeless centre. Wrapping her scarf around her neck for protection against the chill November air, she left the building, longing for the warmth of her tiny flat and the companionship of her cat. She loved what she did at the centre, but it wore her down sometimes. It was good to know she was providing a service for people who needed i...
