My Father's Legacy
Published on 09-02-2017 12:26 PM
“Dad, I’ve made it!” I exclaimed excitedly. There was no reply. How I wish he was there at my convocation for my master’s degree. How I wanted to cry and how much I’ve cried.  “Dad, I know you can see me from heaven. I know you’ll be proud of me.”  Read More...

She folded the newspaper. Supporting her heavily pregnant stomach, she got up to get her mobile phone and sat back on the couch. Her fingers trembled as she keyed in a message.  RAY IS DEAD. DO YOU KNOW THAT? The message was replied almost instantly.  NO. WHAT HAPPENED? Tears started to fl  Read More...

A Sister, A Birthday, and A Requiem
Published on 08-31-2017 01:35 AM
            The silence is deafening.  As though stopped by time, there was barely any motion in sight; like a hyper realistic painting separated from its moment except for the slight, periodic movement of the second hand, its distinct, constant ticking piercing th  Read More...

Heart's Confession
Published on 09-13-2017 05:45 PM
Like it or not things change, either before a person falls in love or after but when it does, it has been always for the betterment. No true love brings the worst out of people. Lack of love does that. Coming back to my point, similarly how falling in love and being in love can be magical, confessin  Read More...

Faster and faster Victor ran, but in the vacuum of darkness there seemed to be no end. Victor Lee began to panic. In the black nothingness, there was no direction, no guidance. For what felt like forever, he was groping in the darkness, not knowing where he was. He was even beginning to doubt who he  Read More...

The Child Who Came from The Stars
Published on 08-31-2017 09:49 PM
My heart crumpled when I heard my brother’s weak yelp. My brother, Eric, with his 180cm height, was all cornered up against the wall, squirming with fear. I was in no position of helping. However painful a sight it was, I must bear with it. Dad, holding a long cane in his right, and grabbing E  Read More...

The Fallen One
Published on 09-13-2017 10:52 PM
My mother once told me that I had something important to do. But the problem is I just do not remember what it is. In fact I can't even remember who I am. All I know is that I am not from Earth.  I remember opening my eye to a strange world. Somewhere familiar but yet I can't remember how I got  Read More...

Merlin's Beard!
Published on 09-06-2017 09:17 PM
Darkness crept over the grandeur that was Camelot and all the land around it as far as the eyes could see. The sun was high in the sky but blackened by a cannonball that had been strategically placed in the sky. On that fateful day, birds in the sky fell, crickets chirped, and wolves howled as the s  Read More...

Love Her Not

Screwed “Run! Sweetie, run!” Amid the woods, a shadow of a petite and vivacious teenage girl ran like it was a matter of dead or alive. She might be running away from monstrous beast. Who knows? Could it be the one and only Shere Khan? Or maybe the Scar from Lion King? She raced   Read More...
