FOWC- Rendition

Adrenaline courses through my veins as I belt out the lyrics and I ride that high strutting around the stage, letting the lights illuminate the star inside me. Applause thunders through the stadium as the last note drifts off into the night.  I grin. I bow. I wallow in my pride and gratitude.  Until I... Continue Reading →

FWOC- Jittery

“Tweeker in room 4.” “Already? It’s 7:30 on a Tuesday morning!” “Crack can’t tell time Moira.” Dr Moira Newell sighed and finished her coffee in 3 large gulps, savouring her last of peace she faced her shift head-on.  “Knock knock, doctor in the house,” she joked peaking through the privacy curtain. The patient couldn’t have... Continue Reading →

FWOC- Devoid

“The distress call came from these coordinates,” the tinny words resounded through the vast emptiness around them.  “I don’t see anything,” George replied through the speaker in his helmet, his apprehension creeping through the pretence of professionalism. “I don’t hear anything either, are we in the right place?” Raj pushed the button on his unbuilt...

FOWC- Fluke

“No way, no freaking way did that just happen.” “What can I say? I’m just pure skill…” “No way, that must have been the luckiest shot in the world.” “It’s all in the angles, here you try,” The two boys turned away from the 7 car pile-up they had caused on the road beneath them,...

FOWC- Subside

Sweaty bodies clashed together in an explosion of lust and too many vodkas. Amanda and Noel had only just met a few hours earlier but the stars had aligned and they each needed to seek comfort in another; So here they were, panting with need and nearing their crescendo.  *** As her level of intoxication...

FOWC- Options

Nathan had always been a man who liked options. From the moment he could remember, he was never satisfied with getting just one of anything. He didn’t have just one favourite teddy, he had 5 he rotated, he didn’t have one nightlight he had three, all in different locations, he never just got one ice-... Continue Reading →

FOWC- Skulduggery

Photo by Maria Kharitonova on Creeping footsteps soundlessly slipped down a darkened stairway, a target sighted, a mouth watered. Billy couldn’t wait to get his hands on his prize, he had been thinking about it all day.  He cursed quietly as the kitchen door creaked slowly open but no one in the slumbering house...

FWOC- Defunct

Holden looked sadly at the screen. “268 due to depart in 7 minutes.” It was the last that would ever leave this station.  Ever since they had built the new bus garage closer to town, they had been rerouting all the old lines through that one instead and little by little, his position in life...

FOWC- Impediment

“Darling, no, sit down, I’ll get that for you.”  Ella smiled thinly, sinking back into her wheelchair. “Thanks, mum,” It’s not that she couldn’t walk, she could technically get up and walk just fine, it’s just that she shouldn’t… What if she had a funny turn? Or A migraine attack? What if she fell and... Continue Reading →

FWOC- Tepid

Photo by Markus Spiske on It slipped into the tepid water, barely making a splash. Ripples echoed throughout the lake, silently announcing its arrival. No one noticed. With webbed appendages it glided through the water. Short, sharp teeth glinted in the moonlight. No one saw. Up ahead a couple lounged, tangled together in a... Continue Reading →
