Stories

  1. Force Fields and Baby Names

    My best friend walked in just as I had laid my head on the metal table. He was carrying his usual machine gun and his goofy grin. “Hey darling. Working on a name for the baby?” I groaned and shifted my feet uncomfortably since they were sha...

  2. Avis E. Webb's Academy: P.E.

    It was cold, windy, and Mrs. Hyem was being absolutely insufferable. The wind was throwing my bolts off as they sailed to their targets, which made Mrs. Hyem scream all sorts of abuses. I hurried over to my target, which was a four-inch wide wood beam,...

  3. Airships: A Blood-Red Cloak

    The man scanned the streets expertly with his arms crossed and his face blank. He was in charge of making sure only the right type of people made it past him. He watched the nocturnal people begin filling the streets as the sun descended. A flurry of r...

  4. Children of The Forest

    The forest was abandoned by the usual fauna that inhabited its realms. The storm that raged in the midst of the hundreds miles of forest poured an ocean of freezing rain. The thunder boomed and shook the soggy ground, rattling the weeping willows that ...

  5. My View of The Funeral

    This was probably the smallest funeral I’ve been to. We crossed the pool deck and I waited for Jojo to pull our her mockingly bright rainbow umbrella out of the house in order for us to not get completely soaked. We made our way outside, and I co...

  6. My Babysitter

    The girl sat tapping her pencil in between her teeth as she decided what to say in her letter to the President of the United States. She needed to explain her dire situation before the babysitter woke up from her nap on the couch downstairs. Finally, s...

  7. Creative Juices

    I was daydreaming, with my head high in the stormclouds of today. Discussing the best time to have creative juices flowing, especially when you don’t have a towel to clean up the puddle you are about to be swimming in. And then this ficly hit me ...

  8. May We Go, Father?

    Pat and Wendy were invited to go to the beach. The day was perfect and there was no school tomorrow so their father wouldn’t be able to argue there. They had done all the laundry for the whole family so no argument there. Dinner was ready for him...

  9. The Banks of The River

    There was a river in the middle of the Amazon jungle that is the stuff of legend. It has been said to be sacred, cursed, alien, sentient, and many other things. The agencies of the world have deemed it off-limits until their scientists can study it. Th...

  10. Mistakes on Duty

    Agent Deveroll heard his phone buzz. His work phone. “Deveroll here.” He spoke into the black device. “Is the assignment complete?” A female voice purred into his ear. “Yes. Subject terminated.” He replied as he shru...

  11. Job Offer

    “May I sit here?” Durellia jumped at the voice as her eyes glanced up from her book about conspiracies, false history, and masons. A man looked at her, waiting, with an amused look hiding in his milk chocolate irises. Durellia stared at him...

  13. Here Be Words

    “Sorry, mum, I can’t talk right now. I’m on vacation with some buddies of mine from the Third Moon of Delerapidieousath. No, not the ones in the band. These are writers. We just found a shop we were looking for. I gotta go. Love you t...

  14. Chemist of the Galactic Order

    Steam, smoke, and vapors billowed out of the hundreds of pots, bowls, and cauldrons that were suspended over a stream of bubbling lava that led from one dark hole in one wall to the other side of the room where the stream disappeared through another ho...

  15. Running From A Friend

    She was running with all her might, away from the worst person who she had ever met. She could hear his light footfalls and soft laughter as she pounded through the empty road. She didn’t care if the gang members saw her or if she got mugged or i...

    Claws and fangs and poison dripping from their lips without any of them realizing although they rip and bite and infect They expect you to be blind Just like them, until someone makes them turn over And you see the bitter truth of the covered side You ...

  18. Paper Towels

    The dust & smoke slowly vanished from the asteroid’s surface & he crawled out from the cave he had been hiding in with all the kids in tow: The Martian twins, a human teenager who was not a sculptor, three shell-shocked wolf-human toddler...

  19. The Ring

    I’m raking my yard, trying to keep from freezing from the October chill in the wind. I’m humming a tune I’ve had stuck in my head for a week and I barely notice the glint of silver in the midst of browns, reds, and yellows. I brush aw...

  20. Awake In His Arms

    Yes, I was part of the Rebellion. Yes, I had a job to do. Yes, the information I had was extremely sensitive and can’t get into anyone else’s hands. But here I was, caught in the heart of enemy territory, held hostage, and lying wide awake....

  21. Ideas

    You would think it would be easy to run out of ideas. But it’s not. Because ideas can be anything. Business men in space. Underwater labs. A deadly ring is found. Traveling into the jungle. A duck held hostage by a tiger. Aliens in your head. Tim...

  22. Tough As Nails

    Boss hollered for more fuel in the nitrogen tank and an extra dozen flash-bolts for the ship’s automatic laser crossbow. After a few minutes, her orders were obeyed and a group of burly Venusites came out of the waiting room to inspect Boss’...

  23. The Doorbell?

    A guest stumbled through the portal into the courtyard and worked her way to the giant, ominous blue doors that seemed to lead to nowhere since she couldn’t see any of the outside walls of the House that her friend Jenny Everywhere had told her a...

  24. Professional Extractor

    Delicious adrenaline rushed through her veins as she chased after her target up the grand staircase. The candles went out with an angry hiss as they flew past them and up they went, the shadows following closely on their tales as the lights went up in ...

  25. Facedown

    Tasha had been walking along the beach, dancing to the music ppouring out of her earbuds when she saw a limp form at the edge of the water, the harsh waves crashing over it and then receding in an unmistakeable red hue. She hot footed it towards the fi...

  26. The Stage

    The stage. Many have lived their whole lives on one. But not this stage, for this is the stage of the House. It is one that only the bravest of entertainers go on. Story-tellers with many great (and most likely illegal) adventures under their belt, sin...

  27. Dreams Are Necessary

    “What are you doing to me now?” “Observing and calculating your dreams.” That made her feel violated on a whole new level. They had already examined her anatomy, her brain, her artwork, her secrets, her regrets, things that made...

  28. War Escapees

    “You have to squash the babies. Before they grow wings!” The towering soldier yelled at the steely-eyed girl. “What did these babies ever do to you?” The 12 year old girl demanded as she cradled a six-legged, blue orphan. “...

  29. lIFe

    People are always complaining about the ifs and uncertainties of life. They like everything in concrete and if anything goes unplanned, they go insane, screaming obscenities from the rooftops. They hate random, they detest the unpredictable, and they h...

  30. (What Actually Happened) The Lady Or The Tiger?

    The semi-barbaric princess was agonized, torn between telling her lover, who was to serve the justice of the arena, to go to the left door or to the right door. Whether to let him live but marry a maiden that she loathed, or to keep him for herself but...
