Stories

  1. The Sound of The Machine

    Chills ran up my arms. Shaking, I asked “Roy, what did you just say?” “I said; ’I’m thirsty, Grandpa. Where is the Grape Juice that Grandma made?” Roy answered back. “Oh. It’s on the middle shelf in the f...

  2. Without Mercy

    Head Judge Durus looked down over the city of Ravenwood. His city. Snow fell hard upon the buildings under The Tower of Judgement. A voice piped up behind him. “Lord Durus? We are ready for you.” Durus turned around. Four men were bowed bef...

  3. Just Another "Normal" Night in Ravenwood

    Just another normal night in Ravenwood, thought the Night Watchman, whistling while he walked down the cobblestone road. Fog rolled through the empty streets; People were sealed up safe in their homes; The gates that led into the town were locked up ti...

  4. The 2nd Verse

  8. No Purple in Camp - Chapter 1: The Sting

    “Come on, Spence!” yelled Nate, as he ran into the grassy field. “O-Ok. I-I’m c-coming,” replied Spencer, uncertainly. He ran out of the motor home after his (slightly) older twin brother. “Come on slow-poke! I got t...

  9. Play the price

    I did it for her. She doesn’t know what I did, and I’m no longer there to tell her. I miss being with her, and her loving embrace. I had to do it though, how could I not? Death had stolen her from my arms, and that was not acceptable. My lo...
