Stories

  1. Predictability

    Today would be like all the rest. The real mailman would drop off the mail at 8 am and we would organize that with all of the files. The real mailman was a 60 year old male that anyone would want as their grandpa. He had a round belly, but it wasn̵...

  2. To Keep Up With Myself

    Two years later I was still searching for that life light. I was riding up an elevator that had an expired safety clearance from the fire department, drinking burned coffee, and my life was at a standstill. I wish I could have been like the other gradu...

  3. Life Light

    In high school I was average. Average grades. Average hair. Average everything. I wasn’t popular, or the weirdo—and for the record—I wasn’t the slut either. My upbringing wasn’t one that would appear on Oprah. I came from ...

  4. I Am A Mail Giver

    The guy that ate his feelings kept a hidden stash of Fun-Yuns in the bottom right drawer of his desk. The woman who was too peppy for her own good had a picture of herself in high school as a cheerleader to remind herself that at one point her life was...

  5. Something Not Exciting

    I was essentially a mailman just confined to a smaller area. Though my ride was not as upscale as a truck. The one cart we had—the other two broke by accidents I cannot not talk about (I pushed them down the stairs) because I signed a non-disclos...

  6. The Mail Room

    The average office job required the intelligence to work a copy machine and pour coffee—and sometimes being able to turn on the computer to check account data, but no one ever did that crap. They were always on facebook or youtube laughing at a s...

  7. These Changing Promises

    There will come a time when you lose everything you ever loved. People will go that always said they would stay. Words won’t express what you need to say. Faith will be lost. Hope will seem far. Emptiness will engulf your being. You’ll chan...

  8. Junkyard

    “Okay, beauty isn’t in everything,” he had this look on his face that was so difficult to describe, almost like he was surprised but completely expected it. “But what does that have to do with you?” “It doesn’t...

  9. What Is It?

    I turned and stared at him, “I don’t know, I just got drunk to have a good time.” “Normally, that would be a fine answer Andy, but I know you and you have been acting weird all night.” “Jake, listen to me. I just got...

  10. Blue Bug

    We got to his car and he opened the door for me. I was always jealous of his car. It was an original blue bug. It was crappy and old, but it had character. I got in the seat and closed the door. He walked around to the driver’s side and got in. W...

  11. Beauty Seeker

    “You know what’s really cool about this whole beauty thing?” Jake asked. “Um, no. I didn’t even know beauty was a thing.” “Well, it’s not really a thing, it’s a way of looking at the world,” h...

  12. Something

    “Katie, where are you taking me?” We just finished dinner and were now leaving the restaurant. She said she had a surprise for me. I’m not one for surprises. “For all the years I’ve know you, you have ruined every surprise...

  13. I'm A Cheater?

    “She just doesn’t understand that nothing happened between you and me, Lauren.” “Trevor, you shouldn’t be here,” she said to me, but I came in anyway. She’s still packing up her dorm room. “I know, I̵...

  14. The 7-Eleven

    “First of all, your doctor sounds like someone I would punch in the face,” my best friend Katie said after hearing the story, “Secondly, you want to get another Slurpee? You look like you need it.” “He’s not that bad...

  15. Buzzer Hour

    “I don’t know why I did it, Hav, it was a mistake, " Trevor said to me a few moments after the psych told him he could respond. “I told you I didn’t want you to go to that party,” I replied looking down at my hands. I...

  16. Consultations

    “So that was a time before you both became frustrated with each other?” The psychiatrist said looking up from the his notepad. I swear that notepad was the thing holding my fate of losing that girl sitting next to me. The girl I love. ̶...

  17. Mojo Hat

    You know those stupid hats that people think are Jamaican? The ones with dreadlocks attached to them? Yeah, he bought one of those. Wore it around the apartment and sometimes cooked with it on. I remember one night when I just wanted him to take it off...
