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 Unspoken Words
Published on 09-12-2017 11:42 PM
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...

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...

Standing in the kitchen, my hand shook as I scribbled words onto a piece of paper as fast as I could. My usually neat handwriting was a scrawled mess of alphabets tumbling over each other. My vision blurred from the tears, obscuring my sight altogether. I took a shaky breath as I folded the paper an  Read More...
