Strange Bird
Custom User Avatar
All I remember is that some force hit me. It wasn’t some spectacular whack but a powerful something that threw off my gravitational pull. People tend to tell you to live in the now; to live in the moment because you never know when your time... (more »)

The Rose
Custom User Avatar
I held the wilting red rose tightly in my hands and listened as the preacher continued on with his speech. I wondered if he said the same thing at all the other funerals. I let my head hang as he continued and I tried not to notice all the eyes... (more »)

Megara
Custom User Avatar
I walked into the guild, exhausted and limping just a little. Still, the usual whispers followed me. “Is that Megara? Yeah! Megara? Really? She’s like the best demon hunter the guild has ever seen! She’s almost never here though. Why does... (more »)

I Am a Slave
Custom User Avatar
Today I am a slave. But I imagine that tomorrow I will be free. The Giedra's house slaves never go beyond the city walls. To do so would be an offence punishable by branding. The Giedra's slaves are for life. No slave leaves the... (more »)

Archie Smith, Boy Wonder
Custom User Avatar
Archie felt guilty; if it wasn’t for him Annette wouldn’t be in trouble. It was his talking that Mrs. Hornswoggle overheard. Annette had her iPod in her desk and that was strictly against the rules, Archie had known she kept it there and had... (more »)

The Pool of Giants
Custom User Avatar
Approaching the mountain edge, she could now see that what legend had called a sea was really more of a bowl. A basin. A white-rimmed chalice of murky salt water, whose brim's far edge stretched away into the misty North, imperceptible. There... (more »)

School For the Exceptional
Custom User Avatar
I stare up at the high school with new eyes. I mean, yeah, I’d passed it on my way to the middle school for the past three or four years, but now that I’m a freshman it seems different. My best friend, Taylor, links arms with me and she pulls... (more »)

Opulence: Another Peek
Custom User Avatar
I drive up to the gate, leading to the huge group home. It’s brick, old, and three stories. This is the local area for trainers and apprentices to stay. I moved out a while ago, when my basic training officially ended and I turned eighteen.... (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 »)

Shrinkin Reality
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 »)

City Symphony
Custom User Avatar
I am set on his tattered blue jean knee, my strap placed on his back. I see vendors and people along the street. A hum hangs in the air as pedestrians meander along the sidewalk. I feel a sense of excitement with all the city-walkers and cars... (more »)

This Curse
Custom User Avatar
The eerie light of the candles in the candelabra spread across the large oak table, which was laden with food. Steam rose from the many plates that had been set out. Everything had to be perfect for the night ahead. There were only three places... (more »)

She hid behind the old tree stump. Surely he would never know she had survived with her siblings all these years. Perhaps he had forgotten about her and gone about his business, but he was too powerful to forget, especially after what she had done... (more »)

Acorn Eyes

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 »)

Vignette of a Cloud
Hi, I’m Betty. The cloud who holds up the castle. You know what though? I can’t stand it, I have to hold up a couple of Giants and a huge castle. My work is way too demanding! Okay, so I’m supposed to be a foggy, moist, lightweight cloud.... (more »)

Destructions Final goodbye and the Jesters...
Destruction walks down along a narrow path way that leads to a large lake. A red petaled tree stood next to the path swaying gently in the soft cold breeze. Stopping next to the tree he reaches up to touch the petals softly, his bone chilling icy... (more »)
