A Present from the Future
Published on 09-06-2017 10:49 PM
When I was twelve, I found myself in the middle of the street I had never seen in my life. The sky was clouded over with grey clouds, but still light enough to pass for daytime. A slight breeze was ruffling my hair, blissfully cool for a summer afternoon. Faded pavements bordered the gravelly road w  Read More...

I rubbed my temples as they started throbbing painfully. I downed some painkillers out of habit. Ears ringing, perhaps a sign of pending tinnitus. Alas for me, that was not the case. Her piercing scream and bloodied hands haunted my dreams. But I failed to see her face. “Damned woman. I don&r  Read More...

   I've seen it in my dreams, far too many times than I could count; it is all too familiar to me now.      Running through a dark alley way, turning left corners and rights. I was chasing after someone...something. Then I stopped to the sudden bang of a gunshot, f  Read More...

The Pinnacle
Published on 08-22-2017 10:16 PM
BOOM! There was an enormous explosion. It was as though a fist of white flame had decided to punch its way out of the 17th floor. Windows shattered, smoke rushed out. Thousands of pieces of glass and steel, a deadly rainfall, showered down. A huge bite had been taken out of the side and the roof of   Read More...

Doctor Reality
Published on 09-12-2017 07:38 PM
"It's crazy how reality can push someone so far into themselves," I remembered thinking as I walked up the stairs towards the room at the far corner of the mansion, my brown suitcase bouncing occasionally on my leg. Dolly was in front of me, leading the way as usual. I walked steadily, going through  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...

Ferryman in White
Published on 09-12-2017 06:56 PM
The girl had died in operation, and as the gentle bead that tipped the scale, he had found himself perfunctorily peeling off the gloves, washing his hands, and numbly retreating to his office just outside. It was the last operation of the day after all, so he could afford some reprieve. Quietly, he   Read More...

They never believed me. Not even after so many years. They always say it all happened in my imagination. But I know. I know all these to be real. Just like the dews that you see in the morning, turning to mists under a hot sun. They existed and then they never were. Just like ghosts. It happened may  Read More...
