    “How do you know what should be done? You cannot even see what you are fighting against!” “No, but I do know how often they kill.” “What are you talking about?” “The Drygioni kill exactly three human beings every full moon night. Their number never deviates from this.” ...

    “Sassie!” my mother yelled, trying to make sure I could hear her over Owl City. “There’s a boy here to see you!” I turned off my stereo and ran down the steps, hoping to see Jake standing at the bottom, waiting for me. He’d been in Iraq for nine months and it was about time for him to...

    The sun shines down brightly. Children play outside, laughing. A storm is on the horizon. ‘Oh,’ the sun says, ‘nowhere near here.’ The children are laughing still. Moms put sunscreen on their little darlings and send them off. A stray storm cloud rolls in from ‘nowhere near here’ and ...

    Deep in the willow, There lives a friendly troll. With your head on the pillow See all the hills that roll. The troll says ‘Hello! Let me lead you away.’ And the animals watch As the bed sways, sways, sways. You wake up in a willow, He’s nowhere to be found. Take your head off th...

    Sandy walked into her house. It was brown and ordinary on the outside and white and ordinary on the inside. The first thing she noticed was the bottle, clear with blue writing on it. She didn’t want to see what the writing said; she already knew. There was a line of frost on the outside of it from...

    I see you... Lookin' at me... I feel you... I wonder if you see... The smile playing on my lips, The mindless swaying of my hips. Baby I feel you... Baby I need you... I wanna steal you, And carry you away from here, To be with me forever dear. You are my life! You are my hero. ...

    The hills were rolling; No matter how hard we tried We couldn't seem to take our eyes Away. From the green grass, Which smelled like dew, The water cascading down the cliff, That sounded like the ocean, Or the hills, Those rolling hills. The grass was singing; No matter how hard ...

    In your arms I am safe, Safe from a world that would do me harm. You cover me in a soft embrace, And brush my skin with your arm. In your eyes I am moved, To laugh or to cry. They shine like the moon, Hanging in a dark blue sky. In your touch I am free, Free from my restraints. I do no...

    Hands. Have you ever thought what hands give us? They give us a mother’s comfort, A father’s discipline, A grandmother’s sorrow, A grandfather’s wisdom, A lover’s touch. Eyes. Have you ever thought what eyes give us? They give us a mother’s protection, A father’s expression...

    My hands shook like a small dog. My eyes darted back and forth from my mom to the truck. My lips quivered with a scream that wouldn’t come out. The moment I looked up was the moment that my mother left me forever. “Hailey, did you do your homework?” my mother called to me at the foot of the...

    Where there is life, there is death. It is something that is inevitable. We can’t avoid death, no matter how hard we try. We may try ‘till we are worn out enough to collapse into the eternal sleep. Well, where would our scientific experiment be then? We’d be dead and we’d have failed. When o...

    Do they know yelling doesn’t help? Do they know encouragement is good? Do they disobey because they want to, or have to? Do they know what we think, feel, and talk about? Do they know positive comments help? What do they know? Do they know anything? No, they don’t know yelling doesn’t help; w...

    I KNOW YOU DON’T LIKE THIS, BUT THIS IS WHAT WE HAVE TO DO. We? Since when did there become a “we”? SINCE OUR MOTHER WENT AWAY AND DIDN’T COME BACK. I CANT DO THIS ANYMORE. I HAVE TO GET OUT OF OUR HEAD. Please, no. This can’t be happening, I have to be dreaming. YOU’RE NOT DREAMING....

    Pen to paper. Hand to pen. Write, write, write. The need burns deep. Soon I will come to an end, hopefully. But for now, I write. I continue my literal journey, never moving my pen from the paper. The process is called free writing, and it frees my mind from any obscurities, moving any road blocking...

    We were sitting in an office building, both staring at the white walls in front of us, not saying a word. It was almost midnight on December 31, and we were spending our New Year’s here, in these red uncomfortable chairs, waiting for the man that would diagnose us with a change in the rest of our ...

    And just like that, I was on my way to a “cozy little cell”, awaiting Jiggleweed. I was in my cell, sitting in a dark and dismal corner away from the bars that felt like it hadn’t been dusted in forever, when Sidle came padding over. At that moment, I had tears streaking my face, rolling do...

    There was Jiggleweed, sitting on a high throne, looking as evil as they come. Seeing him in this state-his face set in a hard, cold expression; his eyes fixed on a spot in front of him-made a cold shiver run down my spine. Sidle must have felt it, for she nudged me with one massive paw and when I...

    The way the sky looks after it rains, Sings to me in such a way that makes my heart leap. The dark gray slightly fades, And as it passes, animals weep. Brown hair and almond eyes, Pulled into a heap. For when I die, the whole world cries, And the ocean withers deep. My name, Mina, The w...

    I nodded my head to show him that I understood, sat down on his back again, and we started to walk off towards the east side of Henningtom. We were almost to the end of the small pathway we were walking on when Jiggleweed set me down on the ground and walked away. I looked around, puzzled, wonder...

    “I’m helping you,” Sidle said. “What are you talking about?” “Shh! What did I just say? These animals will kill you if you so much as lift a finger right now,” Sidle told me. “Okay, please explain what this is all about. Now. Everything in this world is creeping me out and I...

    “Back?” I asked. “You mean… Jiggleweed is your master?” One “wox” exchanged a glance with the other and they both stopped talking about it. “Come on now,” the male said, picking me up by my shirt collar with his teeth and placing me on his back. “Unless you wanna fall off t...

    “Okay,” I responded. Then, without any warning whatsoever, I started to fall asleep. I was vaguely aware of floating somewhere in the sky. It was like I was on a cloud or laying on my back in a pool, moving idly away. I heard this sound coming from below me, but I was too preoccupied to respo...

    “Right then,” he said. “Off to see Yoka.” I coughed once more as we headed off. For the next couple of minutes, Jiggleweed sang to me. How many people can say that? “I’ve just met a bright green deer with red antlers, one that lives in another world and can sing!” Not many people, I...

    “They’re poisonous,” Jiggleweed responded coldly. I spit out what little I hadn’t swallowed and asked Jiggleweed a deadly question: “Can they kill?” He looked down at the ground, silent. No, I thought, this can’t be the end of my journey here. I’ve only just begun! What about t...

    “Well, now we have other matters to attend to; we need to get you to the Queen.” “Who is she anyway?” I asked him as we started to walk off in the direction we’d been headed before. “Who?” Jiggleweed asked, apparently oblivious to what we had just been discussing. “The queen...
