Cellar Doors

Cellar Doors The doors that led underground to me shut with a loud bang. He was finally gone. For now, at least. I thought his torture would go on for a few more minutes. I was in some kind of cellar deep in the woods. Chains bounded my wrists... (more »)

The gun stares into my eyes. I think I can see a smirk on the cold metal silencer, but I’m not sure. Not in this place, this cold, dark place. I take two steps back and try to take more but my back is up against a wall. I become aware of... (more »)

I pulled. Nothing. I pulled again, still nothing. Where was the sound? Why was there no sound?! I could feel my heart pick up. Was this tunnel vision? No. I had been trained and groomed for this, no way was I getting tunnel vision. Focus.... (more »)

JORDAN I always wanted to go to the Bermuda Triangle. It seemed so dangerous and supernatural, but as a kid having no dad and a barley seen mom I could pass as an orphan on the streets. Then I found Jack, and we were like brother and sister.... (more »)

Custom User Avatar
I’m a prisoner. In more than one sense of the word. I’m a slave to those who use my skill set for money. I’m in bondage to my mind, constantly waging war with it over what I should do and what I’m going to do. Also... (more »)

Misty

     It was dark and cold in that room. A distant memory of last week’s brutal ending of homeschool. Just a reminder that I would be here for the rest of my life. No escaping of this terrible place I used to call home. I... (more »)
Whispers In The Dark

We sit around the fire, enjoying ourselves thoroughly. We have been camping for a week now, and we have two more weeks to go. “And then I was like, ‘excuse me, ma’am, but do you sell these?’ and I held up a picture. Then the girl goes,... (more »)
All That Red
Custom User Avatar
After she had met me, her ledger dripped with red. Then again, it had been dripping before we'd met- that's what I had noticed about her first. There was no metaphorical journal that held the contents of her past crimes. Naturally there are... (more »)
The End But Also Not

Swift was always calm. Always. So, it was extremely unsettling to see him crying now. I just watched as tear after tear slipped out of his eyes as I tried to think of what could possibly have made him sad. We were at his skatepark, the only... (more »)
The Scar
Custom User Avatar
I was five when I got the scar. My best friend Ansel and I were playing in the woods outside of our village while our mothers washed clothes in the stream. We were told not to wander too far away, but we didn’t listen. Determined to find the... (more »)
