Stories

  1. Three Bedrooms, Two and a Half Baths

    Our homes shelter our bodies and our hearts. The track house my parents raised me in lived on in certain places even after we bought the Victorian last spring. Little trinkets and the better preserved pieces that had survived our three young children c...

  2. Don't Agree to Fairy Trades

    It was a vision. Avalon stood like a painted moon; her silver shadows cusping bright blues, purples and greens with the cool vibrancy of a masters palette. Boats spun in delicate sugar white glass cut the water and moved with white robbed, lithe limbed...

  3. Show Me on the Doll

    An hour ago she was eight. Twenty years passed in an hour. - Lovely challenge. I just wish ficly would let me post less than sixty characters.

  4. An Old Argument

    “Mom! Eara won’t let me out!” The haggard mother of four set down her wash basket. It settled on the dryer with a curious metallic clunk. She craned her neck out from the laundry room and frowned. Her eldest daughter, Earrach, stood a...

  5. Desk #4: Ingrid Burundukov

    School was easy when you weren’t hungry. She finished the week’s homework last night with moma Decker. It was alright to keep her family name for now, the Decker’s didn’t want to take away her identity. She was Ingrid, but she w...

  6. Patterns and Promise

    “What do you do when the thing you love wounds?” I felt horrible for calling her up in the middle of the night. She was hundreds of miles away in a cold city and a harsh school; I should have found some self control and rang her in the morn...

  7. Discordia Concord

    “I drink to the fallen. I drink to the liminal dark. I drink to the war within.” One chord without mate and meter played on through the air. An assembly of black waist coats and pink chiffon all stared, struck dumb by the resonating tone fr...

  8. Re-Runs

    “This is goram eerie,” Cherish whispered in the blue glow. She stood behind her mechanic Stephen, he was wearing that fuchsia and orchid nightmare of a shirt again. Piping through the cortex was a twenty-first century rendition of a Firefly...

  9. Web

    Ten minutes in companionable silence passed as I watched my sister with her delicate thread and complex geometric shapes. Her skill with patterns and numbers turned to lace before my eyes and I’d never stop wondering at her. “You have homew...

  10. Laying Down

    “’Thou hast nor youth nor age but as it were an after dinner sleep- dreaming on both” Have I died? It must be a queer kind of death- like laying under water with the promise of air and light. A kind of envy for the green and scaly thi...

  11. Laying Down

    “’Thou hast nor youth nor age but as it were an after dinner sleep- dreaming on both” Have I died? It must be a queer kind of death- like laying under water with the promise of air and light. A kind of envy for the green and scaly thi...

  12. Hack and Slash (Mature)

  13. State of Rest

    I try to give them as much dignity as the process affords but it’s always jarring to look down on an old body unmoving and cold. Especially when candles burn at the crown of the head and blood marks a long dead language on chest and hands. “...

  14. Specter

    “Most people call the police, don’t you think your over acting lady?” She walked into his office and already owned the place. Her dark hair, her long legs, she could have been in a magazine or a movie. “Half now, half from my la...

  15. Drought Donuts

    It was raining and Teddy was having a devil of a time lighting his cigarette. The lip of his fedora and his cupped hand helped but the rain came with wind. It turned to a fine spray that wove past his cheeks and killed the struggling cherry or his whip...

  16. Hibernation

    “Are you smoking again?” Puffs of warm air curled over the cell phone; she did in fact wish it was tobacco. “No, it’s just too loud inside is’all.” Light from the party flooded her feet and gallantly lit the porch be...
