Stories

  1. The Call

    The haze of dawn crept through the forest, infusing the ferns and jagged rocks with its golden mist. By the chirping of bluebirds and magpies, Jane knew the hour had come. She kept perfectly still, balancing on the sturdiest branch of a bloodwood at le...

  2. Expiry Date

    Passing a porthole on his way to the lab, Lev noticed that the sea outside their vessel was streaked with tar-like scars. Dark stripes, bleeding wisps of oil into the vast sapphire waters. Cursing under his breath, he dashed down the corridor to find M...

  3. Body and Soul

    Rainy afternoons brought the sound of jazz with them. Samson would watch as droplets trickled against the window, tear-staining the glass. Strangely, the watery substance felt to him like an ignition spark, triggering a sax quartet so unbelievably smoo...

  4. Deep-Rooted Grudges

    Just a rustic shack on the crest of a small hill. The adjacent property looked hardly any different, excepting a new paint job that caught a glint of sunlight at precisely 2 o’clock in the afternoon. But the shack was different. Because he lived ...

  5. Death by Water

    “Will this wailing ever stop?” I tried to scream over the noise. Lester just looked blankly at me, both hands firmly wedged against his ears. It was no good of course; the ultrasonic squeals could penetrate flesh as easily as metal or plast...

  6. Petty Theft (Mature)

  7. Looking for Thrills

    “Excuse me, mister, do you need some help? You look a little lost.” Mila delivered the line sweetly and innocently, with charm that comes only with youth and practice. Yet Janet remarked that her body language left something to be desired. ...

  8. Drawn to the Darkness

    Never had a pearl moon in a purple sky looked so dull, so devoid of magic, than above the startlingly bright city of Tokyo. Traffic lights flashed as cars dashed and crashed through bustling streets, blurring into spasmodic rainbows. Neon signs blazed ...

  9. I am; I do not follow

    I do not follow The demon Candidly cruel I am The fire Stormy Alive I follow not The knight In shining armour I am The swallow Feeble Yet free

  10. Desperate Times Call For...

    It was time to go. Garth’s suspicions were definitely raised, and in another month he’d know everything. How did I let it go this far? Well, anonymity was always easier before the digital age, before electro-footprints and physio-population...

  11. Public Nuisance

    A loud, maniacal cry punctured the library’s air of calm and quiet, splintering silence into a myriad of broken pieces. Oh dear, Ms Davis thought to herself, he’s back again. “What’s going on?” “Who was that?” ...

  12. Dressed to Die

    It was the time of year when leaves turn gold and scarlet, almost but not quite ready to free fall into oblivion. I love that dress! No offence but I never thought you’d pull off burnt orange especially when Have we met? Your eyes I hadn’t ...

  13. New Beginnings

    By the time she’d reached Frankie’s (the only bar in Totaris so dingy the police leave it to itself), Camile’s combat state had almost warn off, and fear was well and truly circulating amidst the adrenaline in her veins. These days it...
