  • The Heavy Breath of the Dark

    I awake into the deepest, darkest black imaginable. I can see nothing but the heavy breath of the dark. It clings to my body like a tangible force, but it’s all psychological—it’s just my eyes not registering the fact that there is no...

  • Ditching

    I slide to the edge of the hill, letting the majority of my skis hang over. Scanning the mountain, I see only a couple of ramps, and they’re fairly easy to get around. That’s the only reason this is rated a double black; the rest is hardly even con...

  • Judgement

    I see people in shades. I can’t help it, its just the way I am. I’ve come to realize the shades represent how the people are. The lighter the color, the better they are. I’ve seen a darker shade kick a cat. And now, I see a man boardi...

  • A Lovely Greeting

    Each tap of my knuckles against the flimsy wooden door sent a sharp pain through my ears and into my head. At last, the door creaked open. I could see my mother’s, now old and wrinkled, face looking me up and down for a moment. She then opened th...

  • Rescued by turquoise eyes

    the door slams open, her eyes bloodshot with crystals that keep making rivers across her face. She cant hear the sounds.. she doesnt want to, maybe feeling pain is better than feeling nothing at all… He barges throught the door, she doesnt even l...

  • The Book

    The first time she had seen it, it was a wet, bedraggled thing, and she had wanted little to do with it. She hadn’t picked it up – Rowan had. “Saya,” he had said, brown eyes bright, “look at the patterns on the front. This...

  • Journey to The Center of Your Soul

    Your parents call you out of bed To tell you of a morbid dread. Cooling blacks and Soothing blues to help numb up and block the news. You tremble from your toes to head and try to sort out what they’ve said: You try to cry with heart of lead, And...

  • Love Stories Do That (tears challenge)

    She hated shopping, stores full of people, self-absorbed, vain, spending money they didn’t have on things that really had no value. She preferred second hand, vintage treasures that she recycled into her style. Elevator music that grated on her n...

  • Sister no more

    Zeetha stabbed the spearblade into the course brown earth working the blade back and forth, scouring the blood off before it darkened. The whole village stood breathing softly, the challenge over. Blade cleaned, she finished the ritual, stepping boldly...

  • Continued...

    The building returns to its silent state and I am alone. I take a deep breathe and turn to my right where, only four feet away, sits a seemingly endless flight of stairs, its end shadowed by the darkness. It takes me about three steps to reach the sta...

  • Black hand in white hand

    Two children run, hand in hand. Black hand in white hand. Green grass waves. Blue waves stream, Silver stream laughs. Two children laugh, hand in hand. White hand in black hand. Two children smile, hand in hand. Black hand in white hand. Grey rain fa...

  • Black Out

    At that point I must have blacked out. I only know this because that’s the last thing I remember before Mark is prodding me to get me up. He hands me a purple tank top and a pair of black skinny’s along witha red lacy bra and matching pants...

  • Amsterdam

    We got on the plane without any problems unfortunately. I looked at the info at the gate. I was heading to Amsterdam. I should have known. I’d lived there a couple of years when I was younger and managed to avoid the bad parts but it looked like ...

  • Mr. Black (Mature)

    “She’ll do?” spluttered Eddie in disbelief. Mr. Black leaned back, elbow resting on his armrest. “You girl, what’s your name” he asked me. “Becky” I said eyes cast down. “He meant your new name idio...

  • Bid for my Virginity (Mature)

    I ran to the shower, which was mercifully empty, an briskly scrubbed off the guilt and shame of the previous day. My hair would have to wait, I thought and dried myself roughly before throwing on the sparse clothes I’d been given. I brushed my ha...

  • Bid For My Virginity (II) (Mature)

    I could only guess what this would entail. Obviously they were all men looking to have sex with a virgin. I sat where I’d been positioned, waiting for my ordeal to begin so it would end as fast as possible. After a couple of minutes that felt lik...

  • Bid for my Virginity (III) (Mature)

    I’d never thought they’d start so high. I looked around hoping that they’d think it too expensive but unfortunately the man who asked the question raised a hand, bidding. After that, the bids flowed in, all bidding at least once. Obvi...

  • Hallucination?

    Instead of dragging my time out as long as possible in the hopes of making more money, I hurried through and rushed off the stage with less than half of my usual takings on my person. I pushed my way to the one available bathroom backstage and stood ov...

  • SuperHero Black Hole: Part III

    You have to understand that my ability, as freaky as it sounds, is as weird to me as it is to you. The time I first realised I had this ability was on Monday, September 28th, 2009. It was 6:05pm. I had finished watching a repeat of the last ever episod...

  • SuperHero Black Hole: Part IV

    Seeing my dad this way, MINUS the ugly scar that had cut a vicious curved line into his face for nearly two months after the anti-climactic aftermath of the car accident that had left him with that gaping, bloody gash in his face, was…well, if yo...

  • SuperHero Black Hole: Part V

    Now, before my story goes any further, there is one last facet of my power you must know about. And it’s the most critical part of my power. Using me as an example, and pretending that someone else might have the same power as me, I’ll desc...

  • BLACK SHADOW - The Four Horsemen: Part II

    I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: Damn the rain. It’s back once again, with extra bells and whistles, i.e. thunder and lightning. It’s a great night for sitting under a tree, I can tell you that. As the droplets slide d...

  • You're My Color

    Looking back, everything used to be so meaningless. So colorless. So bland and unseasoned (just to throw in some food adjectives). It was like a black and white movie: things were happening, but they were not making any sense. Life was without life. Th...

  • Knots

    It looks innocent enough, nothing hostile about tying little knots in string. They don’t mean anything. “What nice colors,” they say as they pass. They only pay the knots mind, they always look away from the tie-er. The colors mean di...
