  1. Brother's lament

    My brother and I have an interesting relationship. We are tight as siblings, but ever since we sort of became our own persons, our interests separated dramatically. It’s to be expected I suppose, but I always wished I could’ve had a closer ...

  2. Instant Message

    Tapping away at the keyboard, Frankie tried to pretend she was working while she eavesdropped on an IM conversation coming from the next cubicle. It wasn’t because she wanted to eavesdrop but when she saw the keywords “bank fraud” ala...

  3. The Hole

    “You hitting up Gecko’s after work?” David said over the headset as Peter was hauling his second to last barge of garbage to be put into the space station’s black hole core. The station ran on the gravity from the black hole spi...

  4. Last night at home

    I open the door to my family home’s basement and I see all my stuff either in bags or neatly packed in boxes. Hard to believe that everything you own in the world can be put in a corner somewhere in a basement. “It doesn’t look like a...

  5. An old friend

    I’m going to meet up with an old friend that I’ve had for a long time. She is the only one I can tell anything to, and I think I’m going to tell her how I feel about her. We met at work. At first the only thing we had in common was sh...

  6. Grown some balls

    David couldn’t believe his ears. He was not told of this beforehand, now he’s standing in a room with God and Death and God is asking him to kill His only Son? “This doesn’t make any sense?” David thought. “Again?...

  7. Grown some balls

    David couldn’t believe his ears. He was not told of this beforehand, now he’s standing in a room with God and Death and God is asking him to kill His only Son? “This doesn’t make any sense?” David thought. “Again?...

  8. Stand off

    Death stared down God. The only creature as old as him was asking for his services. God stared back. This was not a good reunion. “Yes, I did want to see you,” God replied. “I only wish it was under better circumstances.” “...

  9. You came at a bad time

    “What the hell?” Tucker was angry, he felt like this “thing” was violating his wife by appearing just like her. “We do apologize Tucker, we thought being in this form would be easier for you,” Fake Brenda said. ̶...

  10. You threatening me?

    Death laughed then hacked then took a swig of beer to settle his throat. David shifted in his shoes. “You mean to tell me after thousands of years, He only now requires my services? Tell Him I’m way passed pension on this one.” Death ...

  11. Here's lookin' at you kid

    Tucker rubbed his eyes as he laid there on his kitchen floor, he couldn’t believe what he was seeing. The world was still there, his kitchen, his family in the next room, his farm, but it all looked different. It was as if someone or something tu...

  12. We need to talk

    Brenda screamed as a large gust of wind blew in past the glow into the kitchen. “Get the kids outta here!” Tucker yelled as Brenda ducked, grabbed the kids and ran out of the kitchen into the living room. Tucker grabbed a steak knife and he...

  13. Guess who's coming to dinner?

    Tucker took off his boots outside then entered the kitchen door. Brenda was setting a small basket of biscuits on the table. “What was all that about?” “I don’t know,” Tucker said walking to the sink to wash his hands. ...

  14. Quick little sucker

    Tucker started to follow the strange glow through his crops. He could barely see as it was getting too dark, but he could keep up with whatever it was that was glowing in his fields. Tucker was starting to get pissed off as each time he would get close...

  15. Not a firefly

    Tucker stood in his fields as the sun was about to disappear on the horizon. After a long day of harvesting, he was tired but felt great. His corn crop once sold would bring in a lot of money this year. Tucker couldn’t ask for a better harvest. H...

  16. Time of Your Life

    Another turning point; a fork stuck in the road. Time grabs you by the wrist; directs you where to go. The world turns upside down when you are faced head on with it. It’s scary walking into school on your last day ever and all you have left are ...

  17. Silence

    “Wait ’til they get a load of me,” Darren said as he lit his cigarette and walked out on stage. He didn’t wave at the large crowd as he sat down on his wooden stool. The mic set up perfectly for his height, but as soon as Darren...

  18. Quick as a flash

    As soon as I turned my head around, there they were, 23 ninjas chasing me in the parking lot of the mall. I kept focused on my mission, I needed to get a camera. All my life we have had no evidence of ninjas existence but in folk tales. This time we ca...

  19. Lineage - Part 2

  20. Lineage - Part 1

    “Bring out the prisoner!” His Royal Highness sat on his regal throne gripping the golden arm rests. He hated this part of his royal duties. Sending a man to his execution is something that only God can command, and yet God laid that burden ...

  21. Sleeping with the fishes

    “You trouble me Harry, you are bad news,” Li’l Joey said with a toothpick in his mouth. He stared at Harry who was now tied to a block of cement on the edge of the pier. “I didn’ do nuthin Joey, I didn’ do nuthin!...

  22. Act naturally

    Would you believe I played a Rooster in a musical when I was 13 in front of 2000 people? I know it sounds like the beginning of a bad joke right? But it’s true. As a kid I loved to act. It felt natural for me to get up on stage. But nothing stand...

  23. Elenore

    Elenore sat in the diner booth letting her cup of coffee go cold. The colour in her cheeks have all been flushed out. All she did was just stare out at the window as passersby rushed with umbrellas drawn. The droplets of rain resting comfortably on the...

  24. Sound

    The waves crashed on the rocky atlantic coast below as on the cliff above Duncan stood. The sun over head, the sky the softest blue without a puffy cloud in the sky. The grass blew wistfully left to right and back again as the soft wind caressed itR...

  25. Nannie

    About a few years ago on Father’s Day our extended family got together for a big pool swim and BBQ. It had been a few years since Poppie passed and Nannie was moving out of the same house she had lived in since my mom, my aunts and uncle were tee...

  26. Partners

    “You sure you want to do this?” Dennis sat quietly in the car. “Yeah, I’m sure,” Dennis finally said. Dennis did not want to get out of the car, he knew if he did he would betray his old partner from the 53rd. “Let&#...

  27. The First Pitch

    Joey was the youngest kid, at the age of 7, to win the chance to throw the opening pitch at a Toronto Blue Jays Home Game. Joey was giddy and nervous as he talked to reporters. It was the beginning of the baseball season in 1993. The Skydome was packed...

    The night shift at the radio station was quiet. The “Night Owls”, as they were called, settled in for a night of easy tempo Rock. Davis, or First Frank his aka, sat preparing his records for the long 5 hour shift from midnight to five. Davi...

  29. Hope

    The sound of the waves silently woke Garret from a terrible nights sleep. His pillow a rock, his blanket a bunch of palm leaves. Today was day 46. Forty-six days since Garret’s one seater plane went down 10 miles off the coast of what is now Garr...

    “Woah! Slow down you move too fast!” Bobby called out to Robin who was dancing and running across the bridge. “Come on slowpoke!” Robin called back as she finally stopped at what at a lamp post. When Bobby got closer Robin start...
