  • Push Off

    I step up to the platform; a bored man motions me to sit. I look over my shoulder to get once last glance before I plummet down. Their faces are in a smiles, they’re jumpy and overly excited. I am scared out of my mind. I sit down reluctantly and...

  • Wedding of White

    “She says it was the happiest day of her life,” she thought to herself. Her glistening gown was bright enough to be made of clouds. The sheer veil draped over her, covering her bright eyes and pale face. She glanced at the fading cream-colored phot...

  • Fresh Squeezed Orange Juice

    I stopped at the top of the stairs uniform on, bags packed. The left wall was covered with pictures of a boy, young and innocent and how he grew to be who he is now. I marched down the stairs but paused at the bottom step to peek my head around the cor...

  • Once in a Lifetime

    “Let’s do it again!” James yelped as we made our way off of the ramp, leading down to the ground. I shook my head violently. “Not in this lifetime.” He laughed. I literally got down on my knees and kissed the pavement, wh...

  • In the Cemetery

    “You sure this is how we see the witch, Cal?” whispered JoAnn. “Yes, just leave a dead cat on the unmarked tombstone and she will come after it.” JoAnn shuddered. Cal took it to be a shiver and he put his arm around her shoulder...

  • Maybe

    Maybe sometimes you give me butterflies. Maybe sometimes you make me so, so happy and giddy I could smile on and on and on. Maybe you make me want to hug you, and never, ever let go. Maybe I really really want to tell you. Maybe I don’t know how....

  • Silence That is Not-So-Golden

    “See you tomorrow.” Nathaniel called as he got up. I watched him walk off the bus and up to his house. I sat there, staring out the window after him long after he was out of sight. My stop was next. It was slightly comforting knowing that I...

  • Explosions and Microbiology

    Cora’s frightened eyes were waiting at the end of the tunnel. Lately, our lives have been less about saving people and more about running from them. Train’s devilish grin appeared as he held up the button. Sometimes I doubt that he’s ...

  • Victim of Hurt

    I stared sadly at the decrepit remains that laid on the table of the neighbor’s cat. They’d probably come around soon to everyone’s homes, asking where Fluffy went. Little would they know that he was still around, just in the basement...

  • Ben and Jerry are the Best Friends

    Thankfully today was a day my mother worked… I spent the day in pjs I had put on after mom called me in and stayed in bed. I listened to my iPod all day. Depending on the song changed my mood. Some times I was balling my eyes out hysterically, an...

  • Mess of Emotions

    I held my breath to steady my breathing. After a few minutes the tears stopped pouring. “No one. It was just a dream, Nathaniel.” I said, much more calmly then she felt on the inside. “But… It seemed so real… And you start...

  • The Begining of the Decent

    I stared at our entwined fingers, working to keep my breathing normal. I hadn’t felt the comfort of holding someone’s hand in a while. It had never really held any meaning for me before now. Now I knew Nathaniel would always be there to kee...

  • Something To Get Through The Day

    I blocked my thoughts as I leaned against Nathaniel’s strong shoulders. I felt my body flood with relief. The school day was deffinately not what I wanted to deal with. Not with out something to look forward to. I took a deep breath and asked, &#...

  • Worrisome Girl

    I wasn’t as scared as I thought I’d be when Nathaniel pulled me into him. I pushed my mouth closer to his, desperate for the contact with another human being. I pulled away, breathing hard, when his stop came up. I stood up with him and tri...

  • A desperate plea.

    She never thought it’d come to this. She never thought he’d be lying there in his own blood. Would they believe it was self defense? She started to scratch his lifeless body, started ripping his hair out, started to give herself a black eye...

  • Smoke, Sanity, and Fireflies.

    I watched as the smoke rings drifted in front of my face, forming a veil like cover over my eyes. I reached my hand outward, seemingly thinking that if I reached long enough I would soon feel the cloth like cloak. After a few minutes, I gave up. It was...

  • Dread

    The tears coursed down my cheeks silently. I sniffed and brushed them away quickly. I put my head in my hands and prayed harder than I’d done in my life. “Lord please take this from me, I don’t know what to do, I’m so scared. Th...

  • Somewhere

    I silently sat up and slipped out of the back of the van where arms grabbed my arms again. The other man leant down and put his head by my neck. I squirmed, they held me tight. “You were right Mark” he said leering at me, “She is a be...

  • Words of Wisdom

    “I’m scared.” “Of what, dear?” Her deep, grandmotherly voice always soothes me. “…Losing. Losing myself? I don’t know. I don’t understand.” I bury my head in her sweater, confused and upset. S...

    “Gabriel father told us to stay on the trail.” – “Are you scared of a fairy tale that our father told us just so we wouldn’t stray away from his side?” said Gabriel. Andrew looked around in the forest, hoping to see ...

  • The Cold Sets In

    My breath hung in the air before my eyes. As I walked the fallen brown leaves crunched under my feet and the bare tree from which they feel stretched high over my head to hold up a sparkling canopy of stars. The moon over head shining down through the ...

  • Don't mess with The Dean

    Dean Jenkins coughed again, leaning against his cane in front of him. The two girls kept on talking oblivious. The Dean then took his cane and smacked it down on the counter loudly. The echo of the wood against wood cracked across the walls. The girls ...
