    June 31st 1943 Today is a beautiful day in Little Hangleton. Father planted the first of our flowers in the garden today, declaring that this year would be the best year yet. I am amused by his optimism, for he says this every year, and every year the garden fails to grow. I tease him about this ...

    Each person has a given name at birth chosen by someone else. Throughout life, new, more applicable names are given to a person. The latter names are called nicknames, or pet names in certain cultures. They can be descriptions of the person, silly mockeries, or random ideas. Other times, people are ...

    The sun proceeds over the tear-stained faces Never wondering or stopping to find the truth People in the streets look up at, thinking thoughtfully Wondering if they would do it… All the very best of us consider it once or twice It’s inevitable—the pain we feel can be overwhelming Cry, co...

    Tragedy is such a misunderstood concept. People only understand tragedy is when something terrible happens to the protagonist. No one really gets the significance of the idea. Some people do not even know how important the idea is. In Grecian times, tragedy was believed to teach observers the way to...

    “Look at that gorgeous man,” the old ladies crooned. They admired his dark face, honey-like voice, and chiseled man-features. Everything about him suggested he was a superstar, which he just happened to be. He seemed invincible—he thought he might be. His golden tan could not be penetrated by ...

    I wake up every morning, make coffee, and cook scrambled eggs for two. Then I wait for a half hour for Nick to come downstairs, until he doesn’t. I walk outside, and sit on the bench next to my favorite cherry tree. I read Nick’s favorite book for a couple hours. When I go back inside to make lu...

    Maeve wandered across the stage, every once in a while turning. Her ribbon dancer spun up, down, and through the air like a snake. It chased Maeve in a continuous dance of grace and beauty. It did not stop unless Maeve told it to stop. It spun in the air, all the colors of the ribbon mixing together...

    My favorite of the boys was the one that always wore the pink helmet. It’s not like he’d ever love a girl like me, but it was nice to know he would stay constant throughout my life. Whenever I returned home, I would see the pink helmet bobbing from across the thinly wired fence. The neighbors pu...

    School was an interesting concept for Miah Jones, but not a necessary one. She thought she was too smart to fall for the crap the magisters dealt out. She could read, write, subtract, multiply, add, divide, argue successfully, and steal. All that good stuff that helps a person survive. It was the ye...

    The room was empty. Rich maple wood poles reached toward the sky, held tightly together by nothing. Together, they kept out the outside world, creating the walls. The black floor sparkled strangely; giving the illusion you could fall straight through it. The ceiling was made of a deep auburn liquid ...
