  • Arguing in the Dark

    Janine looked at him seriously. “You can still go back, you know.” Up until that moment, going back had always been in Alex’s thoughts. He had been well aware that every step he took toward the school was another one he’d have t...

  • Higher

    On and on we walk in file through the bitter cold of the night. Desperately trying to force some of the thin air into our lungs as the loose scree slips under our feet. I watch the feet of the person in front of me. Copy how they walk. It’s easy...

  • Escaping from myself...

    There are so many people around me and I can feel the change beginning. “Already?” mouths Izar from across the room. I nod once. It’s all I can manage. I don’t want to talk because I can feel my incisers lengthening. He grabs m...

  • A Monster: well...me!

    I still feel anger towards him and I breathe deeply. Then he watches me and the softness of his grey eyes calm me. He follows my gaze to a crowd of laughing men stumbling across the courtyard – bounty hunters. “Not tonight, Glade,” h...

  • Memories of a Werewolf

    Izar looks back. The plains are clear. We are free. He releases me. His hand would not have restrained me but I would never throw him aside. “Be careful, Glade.” he whispers, “Come to no harm.” I look up at him and search his g...

  • Mistakes

    My howl lasts as long as any. It echoes through the valleys and bounces off hills until it reaches the moon. Izar chuckles and a thin line of blood trickles from between his lips. I lay my head on his lacerated chest and I will not move. No mortal hand...

  • Don't look back

    I cried that night. As I had never cried before. I could not think of the cold, or my hunger, or my nakedness in the dark. I could only think of Izar. Hence, I could only cry. Eventually, I suppose, I slept. For when I woke, it was daytime and my head ...

  • Running Away

    I am still close to the town. The villagers must have heard my howl last night. I knew it was foolish at the time, but everyone does stupid things in grief. Soon, bounty hunters will come for me. So I do not sit for long. I know I am the killer but I m...

  • GC

    It is Thursday night again, time for the hunt to begin anew. The crisp December air will not deter my search, although I whisper a silent praise to the heavens, thanking them from withholding the expected deluge which would have surely ruined my quest....

  • Wolf's Night

    In the shinning full moon light, I race down the path. I’m pumping my four strong powerful legs. I reach a clearing in the dark woods. The woods open up into a small meadow. I run to the large rock in the middle. The smell of all the flowers here...

  • Starry night

    I hate the stars, they lied to me. I used to listen to their whispers, make them surrender their secrets, sit in the dark until my feet went numb and my eyes could focus enough to see their colors, their true colors. I used to call them by name, T̵...

  • In the company of bats

    Above my cave. I mean, ours, as I share it with bats, I have painted by memory the old map of the constellations. I have frozen in time that dreaded day, when the children of Tzweilphathoggua, the being that shall not be, will come forth and descend up...

  • Parallel

    He still had memories of what could be called his youth, when his people owned the night. He remembers their birth, emerging from the minds of humans, their fears and ignorance giving his people their power over what dwells in darkness. This time was o...

  • Black Gloves

    We stood on the shore and gazed at the oil platforms in the distance; wondering if there were any poor souls trapped on them, pulling double overtime to feed their families. We talked geopolitics, surfing techniques, alcoholic beverage preferences, any...

  • Into The Wood

    “I don’t think this is a good idea,” Joylyn moaned. “Nania says the shadowtrees eat children when both the moon and sun are sleeping.” The sky was inky black, a dark blanket enveloping the world. Ahead, Zin’s torch s...

  • It's There...

    I could feel it. Something was watching me. I held me breath, and didn’t move. Then I heard a light scraching sound. My blood turned cold. I quickly sat up and turned on the light. I was alone in my room. I glanced at the clock. Midnight. I tried...

  • The Night Walker

    Halfway in between sleep and dream, I lay on hard ground made only slightly softer by a layer of pine needles. A gust of wind ruffles the tent. A seeping of cold air wafts into the sleeping bag, sending shivers along my spine. I stir, then settle back ...

  • Rose: To Holly's House (Mature)

    I hit the ground with a thud. I supressed a scream of pain. I stepped forward to make sure I didn’t break my foot. Nope, foot was still together. I sighed and started to walk. To bad mom took my fucking car keys I thought. I walked fast because H...

  • What I Wish Would Happen (Part I)

    As I sit at the computer, typing away on the smooth black buttons on the keyboard, I hear a slight tapping on the door. It creaks open a little. I stop typing. “…Yes?” I have no idea who it is. “Rose?” My sister sometimes ...

  • The other summer night

    The memories of that terrible night are still murky. Slumped over on a dirty lawn chair, as her dogs circled with the playful curiosity of a child, Beth contemplated her last night on Earth. It was summer, but there was no sun. The cool damp night gave...

  • Drawing down the Mists

    As the day drew on the mists came – seeming to creep out of the sewers and up the side streets from the canal and the river, like a moist, wet blanket, smelling of distant days at the sea, dank rotting things, and deep, hidden places. As the nigh...

    As the wind howls in the night, My mind and I have a fight, Of what to do, what to say Because tomorrow will be the day When everything is about to change.

  • The Eyes of the Beholder

    Her tiny eyelids gently fluttered a single swiss-army-triplet, as her wide, blue eyes stared out into the night. The curiosity was boiling inside her. There it was again! Her disbelief melted away, revealing a rich golden excitement deep inside the lit...

  • Page 232

    232 I stood on the podium and faced the mirrors. That was when a smile crossed my lips and I thought yes, this was the dress. In my favorite shade of blue, this dress fit me in all the right places. The dress was strapless and flowed to the bottom. For...

  • In The Heat of The Moment

    The lights filled the nights skies, filling the dark void with vibrant heart beat in the heat of the night. Detective Garret sat in the parking lot off of the highway, drinking his morning coffee when the call went threw to his receiver. “Women i...
