I stared at my reflection, my brown eyes scrutinizing every flaws on her face. Her black hair seemed to be getting duller and her lips, were always a bit small. Although her dimple managed to bring out some light to her feature, it was never enough to fill the void in her eyes. She wasn’t ug  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...

The New Bespectacled Hero
Published on 08-22-2017 10:43 PM
It was a bright sunny Monday morning. Tap tup. Tap tup. I tiptoed towards my midnight blue car and all that I could feel was eagerness instead of Monday blues. I unlocked my car and drove towards the nearest train station. Shah Alam station. Surprisingly, I was late to catch the train but as I sat a  Read More...

Endling
Published on 09-13-2017 02:49 AM
For as long as I can remember, I was raised in hiding. I know nothing of the light from the sun; living by the light of oil lamps, candles and the moon. We had moved in the darkness, behind whispers and cloaked in hoods, my parents never told me why we had to live this way; the nomadic lifestyle wit  Read More...

2200  "I need to do this." Jaylee sat on the edge of the roof of her quaint house, situated in the suburbs. She fiddled with her thumbs, staring at the ground below. "Are you sure, though?" Cassie asked, hovering in the air beside her. She scratched her head. "You might get into some serious tr  Read More...

Bringer of Bad Luck
Published on 09-13-2017 02:27 PM
I cried in front of him. I thought I could be someone that can live happily just like everyone else. I tried to find it but it was unreachable. Nothing can undo what’s had been done. I was a bad luck even before she gave birth to me just as my mother said. I thought after meeting you and wor  Read More...

Loveliest of The Most Lovely
Published on 09-03-2017 10:13 PM
I could hardly believe my eyes when I was in contact with it in person. My breathing had gone ragged, while my heart was beating so fast I was afraid that it might jump out and leave my body. My legs were trembling, while I just stood there, glued to the floor, unable to move, not even an inch, afra  Read More...

  I met him during the orientation for first year students. Back then, I didn’t know a single thing about him besides for one simple fact; I was instantly attracted towards him the moment my eyes first found him. He had an average height like the other boys, yet he had striking featu  Read More...

Diary from the Holocaust
Published on 09-05-2017 05:25 AM
8 Jan 1920 The benign sunlight showered through the myrtle green oak leaves and glazed upon us. Hayley and I were sitting under the leafy shed, and where I realized that she had been scribbling her notebook from the peak of the morning until then. Feeling the urge to peep on her contents, my eyes d  Read More...

Tag! Your Teddy Bear
Published on 08-30-2017 12:47 AM
It was pouring heavily that night. I particularly remembered that day because people were holding up their hands forming a temporary shed, scurrying to the nearest shelter they could find to stay out of the downpour. I was sitting in a corner of a convenience store, sucking, a strawberry flavored lo  Read More...

                I have been called a variety of names over the past few years. Most people call me a traitor or a sycophant, others a collaborator. A Roma woman I once arrested called me a murderer. Many also regard me as a backstabber. All these names would h  Read More...

Guilt isn't always a rational thing. Guilt is a weight that will crush you whether you deserve it or not. -Maureen Johnson- It didn't start with the sun shining brightly in the sky. It didn't start with loving words or gentle caresses like any mother would do. She was different – an unacc  Read More...
