Cupcake Dan I

When Rosa entered the hotel bar, not a single head turned to see her wearing the fur coat over her skimpy dress, tight enough to expose the unflattering sagging of her skin, and the lights dim enough to expose the crease marks from her underbelly all the way to the scars in her cheeks. Outside, it was the five o’clock blueness of a winter evening casted out across cold steel skyscraper windows, into porcelain bedrooms and marble countertops, heated tile bathrooms and stainless steel light fixtures glowing and radiant lik...

the prom king is someone's queen for the night

I hate the view from up here.  I live in an eight-story apartment that seems to be rotting from the inside out. Thin white walls stand left unpainted. They’re so thin that I always hear the neighboring rooms’ businesses, namely loud music and rough sex. The smell of leftover take-outs from the Chinese fast food across the street fills in this haunted space. I d...

Search and You'll Find

“Lec, you can’t keep doing this.”Alec digs his fingertips into his brow, barely managing to keep his breathing regular. “Dad, I’m not crazy. I’m not. I actually found something this time, okay? If you would just listen, for once—”“I’ve been listening for years, Alec,” his father hisses under his breath like he does when he doesn’t want anyone in his office to know who he’s talking to. Alec presses the phone closer to his ear and grits his teeth. “Every single time you call...

Sally Shines at the Holidays

It was the 4th of July, and the Jones family was all gathered together to enjoy the fireworks celebrations. Aunt Clara suggested that they all plan a Jones family Christmas potluck at her house this year. It seemed that this year was going to be a little less special than it had in the past. This year will be a year since Grandma Jones had passed away. She was the glue that kept the family together. The one whose house t...

The Dinner Date

Teresa Persefoni seemed too good to be true and Daniel Bianchi couldn’t believe she’d agreed to go on a blind date with him. He’d tried all the major dating websites over the last few years and he’d never met anyone worthwhile, until now. Daniel had overheard his co-workers in the lunchroom discussing the new dating app that focused solely on personality compatibility and didn’t allow any pictures or physical descriptions. He even loved its name - SimpaticoSynchronicity.com.Sure it seemed like a th...

At Door’s Stand

I was standing in front of two doors. I had to make a decision. My husband was behind me purposefully sipping coffee, no sugar, with the pose of an exasperated soccer coach. He made slurping sounds between mild mumbles. He finally announced, to me and to the other customers and idlers of the do-it-yourself store, that he was givin...

A Champion for our Youth

By the time I stepped outside, the leaves were on fire.I had smelled the smoke through my open first floor window, but since my classroom was only two doors away from the exit, I was certain I’d have time to disperse the offending pile and stomp out the embers, but the dancing orange flame and the thirty-odd sixth graders frozen in awe (not including the three running away screaming) provided a startling tableau to my overconfidence. Had I been a younger man, more full of wind and vigor, the chaotic half hour-long invest...

Blooming

He sat at his desk, nerves afire. He was itching to get back into his work. It’d been so long. He wasn’t even sure if he could still do it. Would the words come to him as easily as they had in the past? Would they be fleeting, or would they paint themselves on the paper effortlessly, blooming like colors on a canvas? He wasn’t sure.It’d been years. Nearly a decade, he realized. The loss of his writing had been a slow process. He used to spend hours at a time writing, getting lost in the feeling, becoming absorbed in...

A Party Plan

“Are you sure that this is a good idea?” I said.  “Why wouldn’t it be? A party with no adults! It’s going to be amazing!” he exclaimed happily.  “What if something went wrong with your parents and they came home?”  “They won’t. I’ve thought of everything that could go wrong and addressed and fixed each one. We won’t get caught.” He seemed so sure of himself that I wanted to...

Finding yourself

AA breezy music with two good looking chic very close to each other and serving as a metaphor for the already beautiful set design that they will be ,of course, remain very together .... Forever . Yep it's a musical a very predictable one. But for juju a 11th graded student, it is nothing short of documentary. Matter for torturing urself with a boring musical? Love in the air friends. From asking him doubts even when t...

TheParty

Miguel had not been to a party in a very long time, not since the death of his wife. On that day life had ended for him. His heart was broken as the love of his life was tragically taken from him. They had been married for only seven years and had two daughters, ages five and three. That sad day was twelve years ago and in that time Miguel had devoted himself to raising his daughters. There was no social life, no other w...

Sapeulan Sap

They told me grand stories of this city. They said this city iseverything you could dream of and more. I never doubted a single story that came from here. I was always sure that they were true. Why would anyone lie about the Spire? Why would people fabricate stories of what goes on in the streets? No one ever talked about the slums of course, no one would go there. If anyone mentioned it they'd play it down. I remember o...

A Different Point of Shoe

No doubt, you all know of the Evil Queen’s magic mirror. I expect you’ve heard all about the Beast’s enchanted rose. And how could you not be painfully aware of the goose that laid the golden eggs? Magic mirrors, enchanted roses and golden eggs. Poison apples, spinning wheels and magic beans. All of these things are familiar features in the stories that you know, every magical item had it...

Upon the Derby

'It's real,'he wished he could inform the whole world that COVID-19 virus is real,it has recently dawned on him that he was here in a quarantine facility because he didn't believe in the virus hence he didn't adhere to the restriction and now he's paying the price. He was sentenced to be here for the remainder of 14 days , 6 full days away from his pride, his taxi business. His mind worried of ...

NOT a Philanthropist: Part One

I am no philanthropist. Sure, I have millions of dollars to spare, but I’d rather spend it on my antique car collection. Does that make me sound self-centered? Greedy? Why, yes. Yes, it does.  Do I care? Why, no. No, I don’t.  According to my father, you shouldn’t trust anyone. The second you do, they’ll stab you in the back and leave you for dead, taking everything you love. So, yeah, my dad was ...

Happy Pills

It was nighttime. The group of friends were still dancing as they walked along the sidewalk, having just left the discotech. They were all impeccably dressed in the latest fashion, having all shopped together that day. It’s what they did every Saturday - brunch, shopping, dinner and dancing. It was permanently on their schedules. A schedule that was made for them.  In stark contrast to their easy, caref...

She was tall and slender. Her black hair was long and ...

Geneva, City of Yellow Peonies and Dying Mothers

I’ve always loved flowers. However, flowers, like people, die.__I remember, it was a while ago now. The middle of winter, bitterly cold and far too much snow to be safe. Yet there I was, walking down a street in Geneva, bundled up, hair getting frozen by the precipitation and humidity in the air (my mother had insisted I get out of her apartment for a little. Claiming, “I’m not going to die in the hour you’re gone!” She’s stranged like that.)I passed multiple establishments, all either closed due...

The Blue Knight

He paused for a moment and gazed heavenward. There was barely a sliver of moon this night, but the stars… it was as though the gods had tossed all the world’s diamonds across the sky rather than encase them deep in the earth. The sight dazzled him for a moment. He blinked a few times, and then returned his gaze to the road. Nearly there. He could barely see the weak lights of the small city ahead. The gates were barred t...

The Fourth of July

"The ABUs were discontinued in 2021." I don't know why or how that was the first thing that came to mind. I think I was just so surprised to see him there, in the flesh, standing outside of my apartment building. Originally, when I'd come out to take a smoke, noise-cancelling headphones still pressed tightly over my ears, I'd intended to watch the fireworks with bitterness and contempt. Three years since separating from...
