  • Un-easy Silence

    And then Charlotte was gone, leaving me to my thoughts. What could have happened to her? It had something to do with men, considering how harsh she acted to me, but what was it? Once she left I also finally realized how alone I am. My apartment was now...

    “Hey, we should probably talk about something.” I hadn’t realised how much I’d dreaded hearing those words until I did. I just nodded. “Can I come in?” She asked, and again I nodded, quashing the urge to correct her ...

  • End

    I open my eyes and up above me I see the sky, plain and black. Silence is all around me, and no one is rushing to my side to help. Maybe I am already dead. I attempt to move, and with little pain I sit up. I look around me, thinking I am in heaven, to ...

    She was watching him, waiting “You don’t know,” he started, “the silence, its killing me inside. I’m dying. The silence, isn’t it affecting you? Or am I the only one going insane?” The coffee was now resolved to a ring at the bottom of hi...
