Water splashed up everywhere as four pairs of feet hit the sea almost simultaneously. A breeze stirred the leaves on the trees, and whipped the girls' hair softly. The water was shockingly clear and the sun was shining brightly in the sky, resulting in a perfect beach day. The four of them: Jade, L  Read More...

Smile, Emilé “ Emilé…” Her father rasped as he choked on his own blood, his hand clutching an obscenely gaping lesion in his chest; the heart almost visible as it sputtered in its last vestiges of life. “You can meet me in Hell, “ He struggled as he spa  Read More...

            The lights were still red. I glanced at my watch. 7.05 p.m. I’m late, I thought. I hope Mom doesn’t mind me being 30 minutes late. I placed my sling bag on the ground as I stood on the pavement, waiting for the lights to turn green.   &  Read More...

My name is Alisa, an ordinary 15-year-old girl. I am just an average girl. My height is average; not too tall and not too small. I am not clever nor am I stupid. My grades are just nice enough not to feel humiliated. I am no beautiful, just not ugly. My skin is in the middle of white and black. Brow  Read More...

Broken Hate. Such a strong word. But I feel like it’s the prefect word to describe my life. It is not a word that is used to describe things but I’ve heard it so many times that I have become so familiar with it. Everyone around me was always talking but every time the word that stood   Read More...

The cursed Violinist
Published on 09-03-2017 11:03 PM
The stage, the place of nightmares and fleeting hope. This battlefield could once be called my playground. Making names and creating records was all but child’s play. Then again, I was a child. My mother, a widow, was a professional artist in the music world. After witnessing my prowess of the  Read More...

Loveliest of The Most Lovely
Published on 09-03-2017 10:13 PM
I could hardly believe my eyes when I was in contact with it in person. My breathing had gone ragged, while my heart was beating so fast I was afraid that it might jump out and leave my body. My legs were trembling, while I just stood there, glued to the floor, unable to move, not even an inch, afra  Read More...

Hayden had gotten the doll in the mail. She didn’t know who it was from, seeing as there was no name on the box and no return address. The doll was beautiful. It stood three feet tall and had long dark brown hair. Its blue eyes looked far too real in her porcelain face. The doll's feature  Read More...
