    The door bell rang. Warped sound fought back the silence that permeated my house. For a moment I thought it would be her. It was impossible but I that didn’t keep me from thinking that everytime someone came to the door or called me on the phone....

  • Happy Holidays to the Mortimers! (B) (Mature)

    Dear Emily, Has it already been a year? I don’t know anymore. The sun rarely shines here and when it does I can’t see it. This year has been utterly exhausting. Victor has pressured me into having another baby. Thankfully, he’s not ho...

  • (Day 57) Humanity for Humans Lost

  • Payback

    The Sun had set and it was hard enough to see my own feet, let alone keep searching for Kelly. Why would she run off like this? As much as I hate to admit it, I was actually feeling a bit scared. I had been to the lake before, but never this far out, a...

  • In My Arms (Mature)
