The Miner

  I gazed out the window of the spaceship, watching the endless expanse of stars stretching out into infinity. What a wondrous sight to see.   Out here in open space, I felt almost… free, even my freedom was but a mere illusion; a fantasy that will never be. At least that’s wh  Read More...

“Okay, so are we really going to do this?” Maisaa muttered under her breath, being careful not to step on the sticks scattered on the grass. She glanced behind her back to see Dinie almost tripping on the huge stone sticking out on the ground. She spontaneously grabbed her friend’s  Read More...

Whenever we fight, we may not talk to each other for months. I think the longest we’ve ever made was 2 months. It was horrible.

Broken Hate. Such a strong word. But I feel like it’s the prefect word to describe my life.
