Stories

  1. Maidens Of The Sands

    The sand was actually irritating Xafira. She couldn’t believe that she was actually annoyed at the sand of The Equator that had protected her for the past five years. But she was and that was that. It wasn’t the sand’s fault of course...

  2. The Aura: Sinking In

    “Excuse me? Doesn’t exist?” John slowly said in disbelief. “That’s correct. The hospital you were born in was made up. A sham. A fake. Conjured up. Understand?” “No.” John scowled. The Director sighed aga...

  3. Airships: Improvising

    “Shouldn’t we get word to Gladstone?” Elletra asked tentatively. Hawkeye kept his eye trained on the hatch down the hall where the remaining pirates down below were doing god knows what. “Jerem?” Jerem thought for a second...

  4. New Tortuga: Graduation

    Several years later……. “Hannah!” A familiar voice shouted from across the hall. Hannah grinned at her latest invention and looked up to see her two best friends coming towards her. “Hey. How did you do?” Hanna asked ...

  5. Hiatus

    My life doesn’t seem to be going anywhere Everything is crashing down on me I don’t seem to be making any progress And I don’t even feel like ME It seems the world is keeping me in a dark corner And I can’t seem to break free fr...

  6. The Guardian of the Ink Wells

    Oliver stumbled through the twisting, whispering hallways with a stack of paper in his stained hands and his pockets bulging with pens, quills, paintbrushes, and other tools. He heard some eerily chanting song floating to him, a woman singing in a dead...

  7. Airships: Speculations?

    Elletra felt eyes on her the whole way to the engines and she heard some snickering even. Probably never seen a woman on an airship before She bitterly glared at Hawkeye’s back at the sounds of whispered conversations. Finally, when they made it ...

  8. Airships: Something Strange

    Elletra made a note to thank Hawkeye later as she went across the gangway bridge between the two airships. The ship was in complete shambles and disarray and men were in all states of health. A scruffy-looking man with a pock-marked face sauntered over...

  9. The Aura: Looking in the Mirror

    John crossed his arms and said through gritted teeth, “Another Heart Hospital in Washington D. C. My eyes are brown.” The Director did something between a smile and a frown, “Hmmm…” “What?” John asked testily. ...

  10. Translation of Spanish Sayings

    If you don’t want to be looked at, stick your face in the butt of a mule

  11. Suits: First Change

    The perfect success, they had called her. She didn’t know exactly what they meant but their blathering always made sense among them & they hadn’t made any mistakes yet with the Suits. She tilted her head as she examined herself in the b...

  12. Airships: Volunteering

    Elletra looked up from securing all the life-lines to a sudden commotion. Gladstone, Jerem, Hawkeye, and a few others were on deck discussing something in a lively conversation. Gladstone stepped away and called out, “I need ten men for setting u...

  13. Dora The Explorer: Botched Job

    A steady stream of Spanish curses came out of the woman as she kicked a boulder with her steel-toed combat boot. Boots was a few hundred feet away, not wanting to step in the path of her wrath. “The Head of Security will have my head for this!...

  14. The Aura: Birth, Wristwatches, & Eyes

    Before John could respond, the doctor’s pocket began ringing. He pulled out a phone and put it to his ear. John noticed a silver wristwatch on the doctor’s wrist that seemed exactly like the one that Paula had been wearing. And now that he ...

  15. Mental: Confusion

    Finally the shadow said, “It’s Int. I just wanted to see how you were.” Wiki shook her head slowly, almost imperceptibly, “Too much. Too much.” “I know, kiddo. Happened to me the same way.” Wiki suddenly sprang for the lamp. She turne...

  16. Mental: Black Walls and Shadows

    Wiki left the food untouched and began walking to her room. She was sinking in her own thoughts, searching deeper and deeper to find any differences in her memory. Her pace quickened as she dug deeper. She broke into a run, pushing people out of the wa...

  17. Mental: Unveiled

    She walked up to a man whose age was somewhere in the 150’s and tapped him. He didn’t turn from his white food. She tapped him harder and he didn’t even notice. Wiki was amazed, had she been like that before last night? She went on up...

  18. Mental: White, White, White

    Wiki focused on a spot on her white slippers, “It was too hot in my room last night.” “OK then. We’ll get that fixed. Go get something to eat before bedtime and make sure to take your medication. We don’t want you getting any seizures...

  19. Airships: Plan B

    Hawkeye heard the Captain yelling out a reply, “Send a message to the Clear Air Turbulence! Ask what their condition is & how we can offer assistance. End Message. Be quick about it, please.” Hawkeye gazed out as the Perfect Circle stay...

  20. Mental: "Just Teasing"

    Wiki jumped when a hand rested on her shoulder. She looked up and saw the Counselor. He was dressed in a suit and a smile that looked like it was painted on instead of being real. Wiki silently got up and followed the Counselor to his office. He sat ac...

  21. Mental: The Wall That Is Reality

    Int stayed quiet, deep in his own thoughts glancing at his wristwatch every few seconds. He looked like an ancient detective. With his wrinkled, pale skin and his silver hair buzzed short and his frail hand rubbing his chin. He sighed, and stood up wit...

  22. Mental: Interpreting Dreams

    They waded around the crowd in the silent Mess Hall & went through the doors at the opposite side. They found an empty couch in the corner of the T.V room & watched the movie-theater sized T.V. “How did you sleep last night?” Int mumbled, b...

  23. Mental: Scheduled Appointments

    “Oh! I am so sorry. I’ll make sure to turn up the A/C in your room tonight before your bedtime. Maybe it was something you ate. I’ll check your diet and make any needed changes. You can go. I scheduled an appointment for you with the Coun...

  24. Mental: Lying to the Doctor

    She woke up again, with lights blazing all around her. Wiki was clenching her jaw to keep the screams from erupting out of her throat. She glanced around, disoriented, & found herself in the Doctor’s room strapped onto one of the uncomfortabl...

  25. Mental: Dreaming

    And it happened again. The dream. Images flashed in her mind. Numbers, 1,2,3,4,5,6,7. Numbers and numbers. And days upon days upon days blurring together into one huge day. There were buildings that flashed in her mind, and rockets, and planets, and vi...

  26. Mental: Cruise To The Moon

    Int smiled, checked his old wristwatch and left the paper on her bed. Then he shuffled out of the room saying, “People here don’t dream. You’re special. Goodnight.” Wiki sat there in the dark waiting for her breathing to go back to norm...

  27. Mental: Beginnings

    She woke up screaming and drenched with sweat. “It’s a lie! It’s all a lie!!” She wailed with hot tears springing from her dull-blue eyes. She was moaning and hyperventilating and did not hear her door open. Int shuffled in quietly, his...

  28. Airships: What Has to be Done

    Hawkeye stared out into the open sky and suddenly knew how bad things were. Distortions in the sky that resembled ripples on water were surrounding them. They were always harder to notice in the day. A big shimmer on the port side caught his eyes. R...

  29. The Aura: Interrupted

    Before John could utter a rude reply a man suddenly barged into the room. They all whirled to meet him and he looked up from his phone, stunned to see so many people in the room. An odd silence filled the room for a few seconds. John noticed that the m...

  30. The Duke's Backstage

    My mind was slow to comprehend the meaning while trying to fight off the thunderous music poisoning her. He is worse… than the Duke… My thoughts trudged through the command he had given. It began formulating thoughts that were not my own. S...
