A Spark in The Barren Lands.
Published on 09-12-2017 10:49 PM
Three men hiked through the arid landscape, searching for any possible shelter. The terrain was barren with no signs of vegetation which seemed to stretch outwards for miles before ending at some dark mountains, jagged like spikes. Dark, grey clouds filled the sky, casting a shadow over the desolate  Read More...

It's not my choice
Published on 09-12-2017 10:39 PM
“Jack, wake up. I want to see your eyes”, the familiar voice whispers. My eyelids pry open slowly, revealing to the world my ocean blues. The grey dull ceiling catches my stare as the beeping noises from the hospital machines beat in my eardrums. I feel my chest rising and falling with e  Read More...

Okay.

The first time she marked herself was when she was putting lotion on herself and the sharp edge at the back just intrigued her, run it across her skin, and then a slash. Just out of curiosity.It didn't bleed, blood was yucky, but it stayed for a day and a day to short. So the second time, putti  Read More...

      19 years, 11 months, 14 days, 21 hours and 17 minutes. I knew that when I boarded this spacecraft, I would be in space for a long time. A really long time. And I was willing to take that risk. They told me that it would take 7 years to Saturn, and 7 years back. They're 12 years   Read More...

A Pair Of New Eyes
Published on 09-12-2017 10:24 PM
I met her on a warm summer day at the park. I brought my dog along for a walk, and she could not handle her excitement at meeting Felix. "Ohmygosh!!!" she squealed, bouncing on her heels. "He's so cute!! Can I pet him?" "Yeah, sure," I replied, smiling. She knelt to the floor and ruffled his fur. Fe  Read More...

‘Do humans understand each other? Write me an intriguing essay of at least a thousand words, and light-mail it to me by twelve midnight next Tuesday. It contributes to fifty percent of this semester. Late light-mails will not be taken into account. Good luck.’ A whoosh followed as the ho  Read More...

 “Come out of your stinking lair, coward!” Sigh. Another has come for him. Bara stroked the horns protruding from his forehead and glanced at the screen of the smart phone on his lap, trying to ignore whoever was outside. He had matters to attend to. His fingers danced on the touc  Read More...

The Message
Published on 09-12-2017 10:13 PM
The heat from the early morning sun was already almost unbearable. I huffed and puffed, changing my bag’s position a few times in an effort to cool myself up. My companion on the other hand, was unhindered by such temperature. He walked around like it was the first day of spring. I envied hi  Read More...

Cry
Published on 09-12-2017 10:03 PM
I cry easily these days. I shed tears while I watched a cat nursing its young, dabbing the tears away as they fall more when she licked her kitten with tender care. I cried seeing an old couple walk with their hands linked, holding each other for support.  Tears flowed freely down my cheeks w  Read More...

The door creaked open as I pushed it slightly, the sound of the door opening echoed throughout the labyrinth. All of a sudden, the door closed and locked itself, leaving me stuck in here.  I could hardly remember how I had gotten into this situation set aside the fact that I entered the mu  Read More...

Sky stormed through the Enchanted Forest of Doors. She was very determined now, no vines, snakes, or scorpions could stop her way from finding “The Door” out of all the doors. Confusing? Of course. That was the ultimate test for those who agreed on entering this forest. Before they enter  Read More...
