Stories

  1. I don't know _what_ you're thinking about...

    “Ooh yeah baby, just there – push it right in,” exclaimed her husband excitedly. She gasped as the creamy white liquid filled her mouth and trickled down her throat. Coughing and spluttering, she glanced across at him, giggling and sm...

  2. Tramp Dog

    The smell hit Jack as he stepped onto the bus – a combination of alcohol, urine and rotting vegetables. He made his way to the back and eyed with distaste the tramp who sat alone on the front seat. Under the tramp’s seat lay a small dog ...

  3. Drown Deep

    Jorin kicked out once more against the tide that was flowing swiftly through the marketplace, and swam out towards the girl – strong, swift strokes across the water’s surface. He flipped her over, then punched the water’s surface R...

  4. Gone to the dogs

    Aaron huddled down into the bunker he’d been calling home for the past 3 nights and shivered. The cold night air, damp with the mist that rolled in off the sea at this early hour had soaked through the scraps of rags from which he’d fashion...

  5. Passion, Rediscovered

    Henry watched the young couple aimlessly strolling hand-in-hand down the promenade, blissfully unaware of the rest of the world; the crashing waves, the families with screaming children, the seagulls squabbling over dropped ice-cream cones and half-eat...

  6. Moving Cities

    He stood at the bus stop, his body shuddering to the dull thud, thud, thud of the city beneath him. He glanced round at the other commuters, going about their lives, seemingly immune to the changes he was experiencing. The bus turned left, then right, ...

  7. Granny loves Fluffles!

    ‘Here Fluffles!’, she called, sculpting the finishing touches of the smoked salmon cake she had made for his birthday. After a few minutes, she called again, more urgently this time. It was unlike Fluffles to miss a meal – and it was ...

  8. Mother Earth

    Everything seems bright tonight, on this cold winter night. The small lights of the city hang like frozen fireflies in the mist, their stillness reflected in the absence of life across the waste ground. I glance up at my son, smiling down at me, his si...

  9. Drawing down the Mists

    As the day drew on the mists came – seeming to creep out of the sewers and up the side streets from the canal and the river, like a moist, wet blanket, smelling of distant days at the sea, dank rotting things, and deep, hidden places. As the nigh...

  10. Story Town

    He walked purposefuly down the centre of the main street – glancing occasionally from side to side, looking out for anything unexpected on his morning journey. It had been an uneventful night, without any of the usual nightmares, visions, words w...

  11. Could I Ever Really Love Cornflour?

    I gaze at the back of the box of cornflour sat on the table. Double the thickening qualities of flour. Perfect for thickening sauces and gravies it says, enthusiastically. I glance over the rest of the box, trying to ascertain its origin. Try Me! it pl...

  12. Drifting into Infinity

    He’d kicked out at first, working determinedly in what he thought was one direction, soon realising that he had no idea if he was travelling in straight lines or circles. The panic gripped him then, causing him to thrash out, flailing wildly. Try...

  13. The Beginning that Never Was

    In the beginning there was everything – not the nothingness, the endless void, but everything – all that was, is, could be – right there, coming together in infinite combinations, a riot of sounds, smells, colours, sensations, actions...

  14. Aculeata Subspecies

    Dear Alice, Long time no see! I hope your paper is coming along as planned. Dr Deacon and I are progressing well with our studies. The warm, wet weather has certainly done a lot to improve the mating durations of the Dryudella subspecies we’ve be...

  15. Samhuinn (Lament for the Death of Summer)

    Once again the seasons have changed their many coloured cloaks, and I am left thinking of the times past. You were so warm when we met long ago, yet now you are steeped in winter, resting – knowing that spring must come again. Here I stand, still...

  16. Back into the Vacuum

    The alarms rang out loudly – Hull Breach! flashed on all the panels on the walls of the craft. She ran her digits over the controls, blurring into oblivion as she slowly tried to bring each section back online. A futile task it seemed, the crack ...

  17. Downtown Jabberwocky

    Sam drove hastily through the midday traffic, gyring and gimbling round other cars as the midday sun shone brillig over the slithy toves. Another 10-18, a Jabberwocky in progress – 2 hostages, SWAT team in position. Sam patted his hip – the...

  18. Day 23 Under the Floor

    She woke with a start – the sound of harsh voices barked overhead, boots marching across the floorboards. The air had that same musty smell as always – a sour, rotten smell of sweat, decaying food and something worse. She began her morning ...

  19. Confused Adults/Confused Children

    Michael sat on the bench outside the principal’s office, worrying. It had been a complicated day. He’d never noticed Tracey – the quiet girl at the back of the class – not until she had become Simon that is. Something of the com...

  20. A Dislike of Trees

    David was excited – they’d never been to the Tree Museum before. They’d spent the morning playing at the park – swinging on the ropes and frames, the dust on their suits sparkling in the eerie sunlight filtering through the dark...

  21. After Dinner Mince (Mature)

  22. Murder in an Irish Style (Mature)

  23. Clock-Watching

    Tick, tick, tick He sits in the centre of the kitchen, staring at the formica clock above the door, the bright white light of the flourescent tube casting harsh shadows on the wall, turning his skin a pale grey-yellow, a pallor of death. Tick, tick, ti...

  24. Life, Washed Away

    He stood on the step of the ruined farm building, clad in his oilskin jacket and battered leather hat – watching the water swirl in pools in the mud of the farmyard path. The rain continued to fall out the sky, tiny whirling droplets like a swarm...

  25. Bad Weather

    He sat on the window seat, face pressed up against the glass. The window looked out across the road to the playground opposite. It was a hot, sunny day and gangs of children were playing there – running up and down the field, shrieking with delig...

  26. Spelin Errars

    Eye bought a parse at the door and went inn, de-sending the stares to the seller, and sat down in front of the rose of books. Eye was to tyred to think strait, but new aye had to finish the task within too daze. Eye grabbed a dictionary, and pored thre...

  27. Hidden Arrival

    Samuel had seen the asteroid come flying in overhead, heard the cattle lowing wildly as as it burned brightly through the night sky. He’d watched it seem to slow and drop into the desert scrub beyond. Saddling up his horse, he cantered out across...

  28. Sleep well, my love

    Her last breath left her lungs and her eyes shut tight, to gaze on this world no more. Tears ran down his face, as he felt the pain of her loss well up in his core – the life they’d had, the times, the tales, the joy they’d shared ...

  29. Tentacle Research

    The car that had picked him up from outside the physics lab at college had seemed unassuming, and he had remained skeptical until they had begun to enter the caverns deep in the mountains, passing through more and more stringent checkpoints. Walking in...

  30. Maude

    It was only 3 weeks ago there’d been the water fight – shrieking and laughing, throwing glasses of water over us all, hiding behind the counter and cackling to herself. She’d always been that way – dancing around the others, pla...
