FFFC- You’ve Got Mail

Marrisa flicked through her email inbox, deleting spam and marking those that needed responding to when she came across something that was so disturbing, she couldn’t believe her eyes. “Guys, come look at this please, tell me I’m not crazy.” She maximised the attachment to the email and sat back letting her colleagues see.  “Is...

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...

#Write Photo- Uncovered

The creaking noise above me was the first sensation I experienced in a thousand years. A creak then a squeak, repetitive, meditative.  It was fascinating, captivating; what could it be?

My eyes slowly open to see a group of teenagers staring down at me. “What happened?” I ask, still in shock. My voice is croaky, alien, since when did I sound like this? “I don’t know, you just fell and your eyes rolled back and you started mumbling…” “Jem, sshh, give him some air,” another...

WDYS- Eternity

Eternity is just a word, is it? I agree that It has become so trivial it’s just thrown around in casual conversations; “God, this queue keeps going for eternity!”  “I am, eternally grateful.” “I will love you for eternity.” You pathetic humans, you have no idea the beast you invoke when you say that word....

FOWC- Pact

“Please, don’t do this,” Margot whispered, unshed tears glistening in her eyes. “If you love me, if you truly ever loved me, you wouldn’t do this, you promised you’d never hurt me.” Her voice cracked as the tears started to overflow and trickle down her flushed cheeks. “I also promised til death do us part, that...

FOWC- Picturesque

“God, she’s the most beautiful thing I have ever seen in my life” Jeb chokes out, his eyes watery. “To think, this perfect, fragile creature came from nothing…” He looks up from the newborn baby in his arms to the tired mother on the bed, she smiles weakly and nods.  Looking at them from the...

FSS- The Break-in

When I walk into the kitchen, I notice that there is broken glass all over the floor... Cold air drifts in through a broken window, bringing up goosebumps on my bare skin. I pull the towel tighter around me and tiptoe through the mess to peak through the smashed window pane, my heart stutters as... Continue Reading →
