The One from His Kind
Published on 08-25-2017 01:32 PM
The hot air of the beach hit straight to my face, while my body is dehydrated by the sea’s salt. The full moon is light’s supply and I try to bear with the white sand. Probably two or three hours before something happened to me. A candle light dinner is probably the simplest idea you wou  Read More...

“So, is the teapot still chasing you?” I swished around my coffee drink inside my mouth before swallowing. “What’s that?” Gregory shrugged. “You know, the teapot. The one you said wouldn’t leave you alone.” I stared at him long and hard over the rim   Read More...

Icelus
Published on 09-02-2017 09:52 PM
The clock struck twelve and a piercing scream shattered the night. Meilin sat up in bed, her eyes wide, breathing shallow, a look of utter terror upon her face, as the rest of her housemates rushed in.   "Lin, what's wrong?" "Are you alright?" "It's ok, it's ok."   "I'm alright, just..."   Read More...

The air in the house was gloomy as every tenants of the house were all present upon a single old stature, as if she was giving her last word before she entered her eternal sleep. Everyone seemed restless. The maids, her two daughters and her son, everyone was waiting for the voice of the old woman,   Read More...

The Shed
Published on 09-10-2017 07:32 PM
When I was young and innocent, the shed provided shelter for my friends and I, whenever rains interrupted our outdoor games. It was neither too warm nor too comfortable, with scattered fodder covering the floor and inappropriately arranged rusted tools, but it was sufficient. The sound of rain trick  Read More...

Notions of a dream
Published on 09-08-2017 10:17 PM
Mangled.  That was the only word for it.  Aina couldn't understand how it happened. One moment she had been on the bed reading, and the next she was standing next to the highway, looking at a crashed car that was mangled beyond belief. The front was crumpled in, the sides looked like the  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...

The Unspoken Words

It was dark. A silhouette of a girl can be seen in the dimness of the light. She was sitting there, alone, at the edge of the room looking into the dark resembling the image she often saw in so many bad dreams. The same room. The same silence and odour. The same strangeness and unexplained eeriness.  Read More...

"Give it to me," one of the girls cries out. "No, it's mine," the other one says. "You lost yours. This is mine," comes the retort. "No, the one that's lost is yours. Let go of my Princess," her sister screams. I watch from the bottom of the cupboard as they start to pull at the doll. I have a  Read More...

THE HOMELESS GIRL By Sahira Basirudin   I remember the first time I met her. She was sitting alone on the park bench, beneath the cherry tree.

Forgive Me?

I wish he would give me a second chance. A second chance that’s all. A second chance to take back what I have done towards him. To repay and reflect upon my actions. Now all I can think of is if only I never lash out at him. If only I never did those horrible things. If only I had listen to h  Read More...
