  1. Waiting Room pt. 2

    Panic gripped Harry. His brain struggled frantically to understand the situation. All the while Raiffe stood there with a knowing smirk on his face. As if he knew exactly what was going on in Harry’s mind and found it amusing. Harry was seized by...

  2. Everyone's a Critic

    It was a dark and stormy night… -You’re kidding right? -No, it really was. -That wasn’t my point. I mean, don’t you think that line is a little cliché? -Look, I’m just trying to paint an accurate picture here. That’...
