Stories

  1. Atalanta

    The bushes rustled. Something was coming. She heard her heart start to pound in her ears. Men, close to a dozen of them. Adrenaline coursed through her veins. They’ve come to stop me. I won’t make it out of here alive. Her thoughts started ...

  2. Daybreak

    Ree! Ree! Ree! Kimmy stretched and fumbled her wristwatch alarm off. It was a bit before daybreak. The rain had stopped during the night. She took a few moments to rouse herself and remember what she was doing, as her adoptive father had taught her. Sh...

  3. Begin!

    The stars were clear in the sky. Kimmy could hear the crickets, the sound of the creek a few dozen feet away. Her breath coming slowly in and out. It had been a long, hard climb to the plateau. The grime had stained her fingernails black. She could fee...

  4. Cornelius Needs A Break

    Cornelius blinked and groaned. He was in an alley and bleeding. Apparently, the pickup didn’t work well. Cornelius blinked away tears and grimaced. He took a quick inventory of his body. He was bleeding profusely from his shoulder, but his assail...

  5. Quashed Expectations

    Arielle didn’t know the sun was setting. Arielle didn’t even know the weather outside. Friday nights at Phil’s Fun-taste-ic Eatery (kids eat 4 free on Fridayz!) were harrowing on the wait staff, and she was the head waitress. Tomorrow...

  6. Lessons Learned, Lessons Burned

    Train yourself to feel shame only at what is truly shameful. George slept fitfully. The words of Antonius haunting his dreams in a chiding tone. Do not chase the praises of others. It enough to know that you have done right. “They know that I did...

  7. Greeting Fate Warmly

    The air was cold and George shivered, absently readjusting his long gray jacket around himself. The jacket was the most expensive piece of clothing he owned. If it was clean and new, it might fetch a price of $45, as it was, dirty, thread worn and stai...

  8. You cannot change the past

    Why have you come to me today? He gulped and fidgeted. “I guess I need your help again. It’s not working like it did before. I keep on making the same mistakes.” The same mistakes? “Yes. I don’t know how to fix it.” ...

  9. New Beginning

    Everything was it should be. Gil was alive, and Jonathan, the world was still whole. Maybe, maybe this time it would be different. Marcus grinned so hard he squeaked his teeth. This time, this time it would be different. He shivered with giddiness. His...

  10. The Hunt Begins

    Whistles came up from the vast army. The scouts had found her again, scampering across the human lands. The general roared a command. The hunt would begin in earnest now. The general spoke in slow syllables to the huge creatures in the army. The humans...

  11. Dusk

    Connor returned home at dusk. As he approached his house, he could here shouting and saw the shadowy forms of his parents in the dining room window. This in itself wasn’t anything interesting. Connor’s parents often fought after dinner. Wha...

  12. the weights and shackles of dreams

    I had that dream again. That dream where I’m protecting the girl, but I’m taller, stronger. He comforts the girl, not me, but I’m the one doing the fighting. I’m the one that loves her and protects her. But she doesn’t see...

  13. Transition

    He was young, even by the standard of the enlisted troops. He drank too much and became bawdy. The officers didn’t reprimand him, know that he may survive the morning if he was late, or early. Others watched the campfires, sullen. They knew the f...

  14. Breakfast with Martin

    Theodore awoke on top of his bed. He glanced at the clock, 11:11 AM. He rubbed the crusts from his eyes and stared at the window frame. Time to feed Martin. Theodore stalked to the aquarium and opened the container of fish food with his clumsy hands. &...

  15. Another night for Theodore

    He was groggy. It was late, or reaaally early, depending on how you looked at it. His clothes were covered with stains of food. He stared at the television, not paying attention to the messages: Act now! Offer ends soon! Call now and also get a free po...

  16. Smell

    The acrid dust of ancient times blew against my nose Remember times long past Books upon books, standing in repose A darkness from shadows cast Sunlight from the window Dripping water from below It cannot be replaced The love I felt

  17. Break Fast

    Mari lumbered, zombie-like into the kitchen. She was dressed, her hair combed, but she still appeared sleep deprived and dour. She looked down at her breakfast, pursed her lips and attacked it. “Do you like your pancakes? I used that buttermilk r...

  18. 4 o'clock in the morning

    Connor was making breakfast, as he always did during the week. He was a morning person, in that respect as well as many others, the exact opposite of his sister Mari. Mari grumbled and moaned after Connor came in her room and tried to shake her awake. ...

  19. Chased

    Despair! The thought crossed her mind wordlessly. The monsters were chasing her again. Run away! Hide! She reached with her senses, trying to find someplace to hide. Deep deep, find the deep! Always chasing, they followed her, smelling of blood. Despai...

  20. Baking

    The scent of her baking a stirring in the making a whiff from her lips sets my heart a stir oh where is my woman? My wife, my soul

  21. Courage again

    Heart pounding, breathe sounding Anticipation, resuscitation Courage comes again To touch the hair of the princess, oh fairest of all What will I need to do, to get past that garden wall?

  22. Toad

    The toad stared at Anthony disinterestedly. Its eyes a hazy glaze, slowly blinking them into its head.

  23. Refuge In Audacity

    My refuge is audacity, my sword is generosity. The center of my mind is the whole of nature. I consider myself a warrior, a soldier, a knight. The law I follow is written on my own heart. If you look at me, what do you see? My armor is invisible, my he...

  24. whirling darkness

    Darkness. Silence. I was alone with my thoughts. I could no longer feel the pressure of my armor against my skin. The pulse of the life support system was also gone. I tried to speak, but the only words I heard were in my own mind. “Hey…...

  25. Silhouttes and Whispers

    Silhouettes on a wall and whispers through the air . Open secrets, hidden expressions. Romanticism and the mundane. Longing and routine. These are the things I see, sitting here, watching. But no-one notices me. Do I observe things differently than tho...

  26. Responsibility

    A low growl emanated from the …creature? It seemed to be alive. Serafina jumped into the air, 3 feet, 6 feet, 9 feet, what is that girl? connecting with the creatures face with a thundering crack. She landed with a skid onto the asphalt of the st...

  27. Aggregation

    Eliza took a deep breath. Don’t panic. She felt her hands shaking, suddenly her skin felt clammy. She tried to swallow, but her mouth was dry. I said don’t panic! She felt dizzy, she needed to find some place to sit down. Eliza lurched to t...

  28. Protection

    Just as Ethan was about to topple over, the creepy girl grabbed his shirt with inhuman speed and strength. She also stopped on a dime, Ethan only had a moment to realize this before he heard a squeal and a large explosion. An instant later and Serafina...

  29. Assignment

    trudge trudge Ethan huffed as he returned home from school. Another horrible day in a horrible week. He was having the worst luck, first making an ass out of himself in front of his entire home room, then a D on his English assignment, his life just go...

  30. Once upon a danger

    Deeply sleeping, never waking before the dawn, he looked up and saw the faun. Sunlight poked through the clouds, groggily he heard the baying of the hounds. Yawning awake, a shook was all it would take, to shed the sleep like so much dust. On his feet ...
