When it All Stops
Malton was different. Everyone was here and it seemed they wanted to have a moment of the most true silence. Not a single word fell from their lips and not the slightest movement was stirred from the people’s slumber. One with a sharper eye... (more »)

Do Not Look Up

The Slide

Another kid had been swallowed. His inner tube, that was now drifting slowly in the pool, was the only sign of his existence. His parents waited at the end, but their son was long gone. He was just another victim of the kid-eating-waterslide.... (more »)

Lottery Ticket
By , Salem, MA
For a year, I’ve been staring at plain, concrete walls. The cracks, the rust, I could be blind and still see what these basement walls looked like. My lion’s tail tapped the wall of the corner I was sitting in. It was the only part... (more »)

Escape Plan

I will not be ruled by time. I will not conform to the ticking, tocking, wheeling, swirling mass of humans going round and round to the clack of a clock. I will break the perfect circle of time and run free, through the fields of emptiness,... (more »)

Sight-A human during the day can cast a horrific night scene.  During the day it is docile and calm; the creature longs for a compatible and compassionate companion.  Then the night comes and takes a new form.  The depth of a mind so... (more »)

“No! I’m telling you, I’m different. I can be beneficial to this new society! Please, please!” she screamed. Nobody reacted. The line moved forward one step. She was shocked at the calmness of the other people around her. Young and old... (more »)

High Stakes This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.
From his seat at the bar, Morse watched as the man in the dark suit moved from table to table, placing bets and shuffling decks and winning every game. Nobody else seemed to have noticed him. The man’s face was so bland it was almost entirely... (more »)

I never really got the point of school. Never have. You get up in the morning to go to a cruel place where you get educated, picked on, bullied, so on and so forth. I get good grades and all, 4.0, straight A student. I’m smart but not the... (more »)

My dad always said I was born with a gun in my hand. You see, my dad and I hunt everything just for fun. He taught me to use a gun when I was three! His only rule is that if I see an animal on four legs, I've got to shoot it, or as he puts it,... (more »)
