Kite Flying

I wander through the field stepping over bumpy ground. Sam who has a 13 year old body but a 4 year old heart holds on to one of the sleeves of the jacket tied around my waist. Sam is bigger and older than me but I’m the big sister all the same. “Elsa, can I[…]

Well of Secrets

“Secrets can kill.” I said as we stare down into the dark pit below us. I feel my skin crawl. It doesn’t want to go down there. I should listen to my body and it’s warnings but I know that there is nowhere safe left to go. I try to tell myself that Descending into[…]

Bitter Tasting

She licked her lips not able to release the bitter taste from her tongue. That boy did not taste good. He was too nervous and it tainted his flavor. She told him she wanted to walk home alone. She listened to the click, click of her heels on the cement as she hurried to the[…]

A Useful Brain

“Good morning!” The lady in the dark pantsuit said. She looked around the room as if they were being loud disruptive children, when the opposite was actually true. Desi looked around him and noticed that everyone was just as quiet and nervous as he was. All eyes were focused in the general direction of the[…]

Alone in a New World

The fire hadn’t gone down much since she got it going. Shelby poked and prodded it with a long stick hoping the stick wouldn’t catch on fire too. She needed coals to cook with and wasn’t seeing any. She had to cook today. There was nothing ready made.  She hoped that she’d end up with something[…]

My Face in the Mirror

  It’s been a long time since I’ve looked at myself in the mirror. So when I stumble upon one in the corner of an abandoned building, I duck my head to avoid it. My heart races at the near glimpse of what I’ve become. I’m alone. No one is on this side of the[…]

Devil Be Gone Juice

My alarm clock goes off. My heart matches it beat for beat in my ears. Good grief! I hadn’t realized that this alarm was set for heart attack! I almost fall on my face as I untangle myself from my blankets. I can’t find my alarm clock and my body is in panic mode. Whose[…]
