  1. The Baker Homes Apartment Complex

    I live in an apartment complex of rules. I moved here two months ago. Apartment number 29. A quiet, quaint complex. A new home, one much needed. I was fresh out of college, and needed a closer place by my job. This complex was ideal. The whole process ...

  3. Everything I Am

    If you’re reading this, I am hopefully long gone. Everything I am is written in following words, please, never lose this paper. Take care of it.

  4. Fog.

    The fog rolled in at 3 PM. The thing appeared at 3:34. Evan went outside to check, all I hear now are screams. The figure is coming out of the fog. Oh god, what does it want? Evan is still out there somewhere. the fog is so thick. we are a little outsi...

  5. You Will Not Find Me

    My life was empty until I saw your warm, sleek body walk past me. At first, I didn’t think twice, but as I shot that second glance back, I knew I found the one. I watched you, I followed you, I examined you for weeks. Most of the time, you didn&#...

  6. Unspoken

    I did not look, But still did see What was not true And could not be I dared not listen, And yet still did hear Unspoken words That found no ear I could not touch, Yet still I feel Where no wound was It would not heal I spoke no words That could not t...

  7. Don't We All?

    I noticed the gathering had stopped, and turned to face me, my grandfather was the last to turn and like the others, had a solemn expression. His arm flickered from stationary to outstretched, pointing towards the front door. My sanity in question, I w...

  8. Null

    Null. Mistakes were made, and corrects have followed…………

  9. The Age of Anything

    It was around 3am at this point and admittedly I was slightly drunk. I knew in the back of my mind I would have to walk past number 48, and I also “knew” that what I’d experienced was easily explained as some sort of perceptual fuck up. I was get...

  10. Burnt Out

    “The one on the end of the road that looks like a retirement home” “No I don’t. What did you want again?” She motions towards the cigarettes. Trying hard not to look embarrassed, I bought my usual cigs and left towards the house. Inside, ever...

  11. Confusion

    For the two years I have lived nearby, the house has always had, “please allow for a short while for someone to answer the door” stuck to the front door, stapled neatly on an untarnished piece of white card. A year had past since I first st...

  12. House 48

    I have this odd habit of always looking through peoples windows if the curtains are fully drawn. Most people think its impolite or just plain weird. Sometimes I catch the eye of the people inside, and see them pull facial expressions that border on the...

  13. Together, We Wait 'Till Dawn

    The veil of night darkens the atmosphere, as if it itself is a living being. The creature engulfs the coast, tip to tip. He begins from the heavens, crashes the grass. Ground zero hath became the coast. Only sign of the sun, a flower patiently awaiting...

  14. Existence

    The nights are worse. Instead of average people ignoring me, I have crazed crackheads watching me. Analyzing as if I am some sort of test subject. I don’t know what they want, but they refuse to go away. Then the sounds of the nightlife came into...

  15. Of

    One could call me a glitch. A mistake. A fragment of data. But I’m none of those. I don’t know why I am here, but I assure you, I am human. My home is exactly like here, but entirely different. The last thing I remember in my real home was ...

  16. Planes

    I have to share my story. Not to scare, not to show what kind of tale I can spin, but because it happened to me, and people need to know. Only that way can they save themselves. I guess I can start by telling you my name. I am Chris Savannah. I donR...

  17. Facility and Intentions

    From: (CENSORED) To: (CENSORED) Subject: Facility and Intentions We have it all secured, minus our hideout, obviously. (More on that later) The nanobots have been programmed. I guess I’ll give you a little insight. They will be programmed to dupl...

  18. RE: Facility and Intentions

    To: (CENSORED) From: (CENSORED) Subject: RE: Facility and Intentions Well that’s…a certainly interesting block of into there. You sure all this nanobot jazz will go over smoothly? But hey, I mean, if you can pull it off then so be it. But a...

  19. RE: RE: Facility and Intentions

    From: (CENSORED) To: (CENSORED) Subject: RE: RE: Facility and Intentions Obviously, my plans are to silently and efficiently make the man that owns that house go “missing”. Respectively, we could use him as a vessel, or a chamber, if you wi...

  20. RE: RE: RE: Facility and Intentions

    To: (CENSORED) From: (CENSORED) Subject: RE: RE: RE: Facility and Intentions Okay. Good. So I guess I’ll be living it easy till then? It looks like everything is set up, and once (provided they don’t find you, moron) you come out of hiding,...

  21. Mission Breach

    To: (CENSORED) From: (CENSORED) Subject: Mission Breach Listen to me, and listen to me now. They know what’s going on. We need to do this NOW, or risk the failing of our entire mission. And possibly the end of our (free) lives. Fuck final prepara...

  22. Finalized Report

    From: (CENSORED) To: (CENSORED) Subject: Finalized Report No. Scotty is staying home, either that or I’ll just have him put down. Don’t want him living in the world fast approaching. Well, I checked everything in the vault, and its all clea...

  23. RE: RE: RE: Call

    To: (CENSORED) From: (CENSORED) Subject: RE: RE: RE: Call No. I haven’t told them, nor do I plan to. I am leaving as soon as you’re ready to take me in. I don’t want to have to look them in the eye, and I’m sure you can relate. ...

  24. RE: RE: Call

    From: (CENSORED) To: (CENSORED) Subject: Re: Re: Call The facility is under control, and you know all the information to access it. 24 hours till the gates open. I’ll be heading over in a few hours to make sure we have supplies to last. Have you ...

  27. A Plea of the Mind

    You need to trust me, that is all I ask. I just want you to do one thing, and then you can go on your way. You must stop reading this and go straight to the last paragraph. Please. Do so without reading any other paragraph…just trust me. You had ...

  28. Pandapocalypse

    The panda walks. Step by step, through this post-apocalyptic world. He is searching for the food that was once given to him hourly, for the the water that was available daily, and the comfort that was there all around the clock. He wont find it. And he...

  29. Eye Sockets

    It is up to my waist now, I have no hope of escaping. Only thing left to do was throw as many insults to that fucker as possible. But when I opened my mouth, nothing came out. Just the sound black mess tightening around my legs. Just the sound of ropes...

  30. Gliding Over the Earth

    The first figure steps from behind the tree. And then another. And another, and another, and another. Soon they were surrounding me. Easily 20 of them. But I knew there were billions more. They didn’t move at first, the black, gaping holes where ...
