I have no idea.

Seriously, I have no idea.

Stories

  1. Jacob's Father

    Jacob’s father hit the ground with such force, he bounded back to his feet almost kinetically. Grabbing the hammer’s handle, he screamed and tore it out of his forehead. “Did you just try to kill me!?” His father shouted with su...

  2. Anger (Mature)

  3. The Answer

    He looked at the girl, her eyes were glazed over like she was just about to cry. She might be crying now, were she still alive. Now he knew what he was wondering all along. Long nights went by, sleepless nights, tossing and turning with questions in hi...

  4. The Final Act

    “Let’s get in there and knock ‘em dead. You have to make it sound like the weight of the world has been square on your head for your entire life, with no one to help you. Try to look beaten down, also. That will help you gain sympathy...

  5. Jacob's Hammer

    Jacob swung his hammer with everything he had. It felt as though his muscles and tendons were going to separate from his bones. He didn’t mean to lash out so violently, but it was too late now. The hammer flew so quietly as it left his hand that ...

  6. Up in the Air

    I can fly. Holy shit, I can fly. I’m really up here, above the city, looking down what must be 20 or 30 stories to the streets below. No one can see me against the night sky, as I’m zooming between buildings and around corners, barely able ...

  7. Hurt

    “It was a long time ago, and I was a different person back then!” She sobbed to me. “You don’t get to decide when things are better between us.” I held firm on my ground. For so long, I had no idea what was going on aroun...

  8. Fascination

    I am completely enthralled. I have never been so into something, or someone, like this. Every waking moment seems to be dedicated to suffering through the day for the 15 minutes of precious time that no one else seems to notice. There isn’t even ...

  9. Death in Dreams

    I don’t know if it’s been 3 days or 4 yet, but I haven’t been to bed in a while. I can’t sleep. It’s that I won’t go to sleep, I simply can’t. I know that bad things happen when I sleep, and I stay awake to pre...

  10. Stranger than strangers

    I see her all the time. I have no idea what her name is, where she lives, if she has a cat, a dog, a fish, or any of those small details. She just keeps popping up in my life. Monday at the corner store, Wednesday at the gas station, Saturday at the mo...

  11. Aisle 4

    “Wow, check out that one!” Marcia pointed to the monitor, displaying aisle 4. He was dressed in a brightly colored, sequin-covered jumpsuit with ruffles at the collar and sleeves. His makeup was dried and cracking, the colors barely recogni...

  12. A Dead Man's Best Friend

    I woke up to a howling. It sounded like my dog, locked out in the back yard. It was my day off, so I did what I usually do. “SHUT UP, YOU PIECE OF CRAP!” I shouted out my window, using my human authority of loud speech to quiet the beast. I...

  13. The Shovel

    The way the shovel resonated as it hit Tom’s jaw, it sounded so beautiful, like a church bell on Sunday morning. Tom’s feet left the ground as he sailed back, motionless through the air. He hit the ground exactly three feet from where he ha...

  14. One of Many

    At the toy store, our “Mom” tells us we have 15 minutes to meet back up with our selection. We each get one toy, and if we haven’t made our decision by then, we get nothing. The only bad thing about today is that everyone gets to go. ...

  15. I hope he doesn't notice the dust...

    He’s finally asleep. Moving under the cover of night, we make our journey up the side of the bed. We climb up his hideously patterned pajamas, and onto his chest. It heaves up and down as he breathes, and the wind from his mouth almost blows us o...

  16. Number 12

    In a diner, not far from Chicago, I sit. I’ve just finished the most amazing pancakes I have ever eaten, period. They were so light and fluffy, and the syrup was as sweet as the sun. My stomach full and my spirits high, it’s time to go to w...

  17. What did you sign me up for?

    I tightly close my eyes and grip my suitcase, as if it were the most important thing in the world. What contained my clothes, my toiletries, my teddy bear, seemed to be greater than anything else in the world. I had no idea it was going to be like this...

  18. The Journey

    We head out. Our group could always use more and better weaponry, and maybe we can find something nourishing, or at least edible. Every dozen or so feet, we stop and listen. The noise we hear is neither near nor far, but it’s too close for my lik...

  19. Speeding

    Jim raced down the expressway, as he often did after a draining day at the grind. He mentally gave the finger to his workplace, his daily prison, as he glared at it in his rearview mirror. No more paper to push, no more lines to color in, just him and ...
