    So because we expected Tarah's parents to come over that morning to pick her up, I decided I'd take Tarah to work with me. The library always needs volunteers, and they wouldn't expect her there. Their next stop would be Nick's house or some other place Tarah would run off. We...

    "Thank you so much for dinner, sweetheart," my mother gleams at Tarah. She takes hold of her hand and is so happy to see my father and I get along again. "No problem Mrs. Austin," Tarah returns. "Don't worry about the dishes either." "Oh no," she ar...

    I walk into the house and immediately search for Tarah. I only have a week to make her fall for me, and if I don't, there goes a month of my summer toward working two shifts at once. Now, in the back of my head, the bet was caveman-like, but since when did I spare Tangle's feelings? I noti...

    I push the cart of books to the fiction section and begin placing the books in their respective positions. So much was on my mind, and I didn’t even notice that I placed a book by Harper Lee in the section with Joaquin Dorfman. My co-worker, Stew, the one that was dared to hit on Tarah, noticed an...

    Some time ago, I made a decision that would ruin my life: I decided not to go to college. I'm currently employed at the local library, doing the most monotonous work anyone could ever do. My father resented me for not going to college, and we go through most of the day avoiding each other. I ne...

    Let me start off by saying that I’m a man’s man. I don’t go on the internet or talk on the phone everyday; I’d much rather go fishing or paintballing. I don’t share my problems or vent; I keep to myself most of the time. I don’t play dress up with my little sister, Nadine; I’m too old ...

    I don’t know how I managed to seem so calm and collected with Cedric last Saturday, especially when I pulled him down for a kiss. Right now, I’m having so many thoughts that just prove I’m a nervous wreck. He admitted he was drinking at the party, so maybe everything he said was just a lie. Fo...

    Cedric’s party started off as a reasonable birthday with balloons and cake but turned into an uncontrollable birthday bash of drinking and smoking. I could only see blurs and mirages of random scenes throughout the day replaying in my head. I struggled to escape the living room filled with whirls ...

    I was rummaging through the sofa, And I found something old, I held it close to my heart, It brought pain; the memories cold. I quickly scanned the bracelet, Engraved was the date we met and your name, Then I thought about you, What are you up to? Who have you become? Are you the same? I...

    Zachary tugged on his backpack strap and continued ramming his books into his pale blue locker. He ruffled his tousled locks and quietly looked at Lindsay, his locker neighbor to the right. Lindsay sheepishly smiled and gave him a thumbs up. She was elated to find out they’d be locker neighbor...

    As Robert snapped his backpack off and tossed it aside on the couch, I searched for a seat and made myself comfortable. Beads of perspiration slid down my face, and I wondered if I was sweating because of the heat or the fact that being in Leah’s house made me so nervous. “Are you okay, Kelv...

    She dragged her feet to the dining table and picked up all the dishes, not making any eye contact with me. I raised my head once to see if she would budge and just speak to me, but she doesn’t. I get the feeling she’s just frightened. I mean, I’d be scared if a stranger just showed up at my ap...

    A song will play on the radio, Each word would remind me of you, Your scent, your feel, The way you left—so smooth. You were my first friend here, Your heart was ultimately kind, But with most first loves, The world is seen blind. Wherever you were, I needed you like air; like food, ...

    They say cheaters never prosper, Yet your image is still there, Not cracked or broken, Games were never fair. They say cheaters never prosper, Yet, you had your cake and ate it too, Cheaters always win, Despite what’s a lie and what’s true. They say cheaters never prosper, Yet you w...

    The International Festival at Houston just sounds intriguing—am I right? This year, the organization spotlighted the Caribbean. Every year, they focused on a new and different culture from another part of the world. Many people from all over the state join together for this innovation celebration....

    I sat at the dinner table nervously awaiting the events to occur. I picked up a spoon and began tapping it against the table. The clicking of the spoon slammed against the wood in a rhythmic pattern, causing my nerves to calm down only a little. The waitress dropped by and asked in a polite voi...

    A game of Monopoly will go on forever, I've never seen an end to the game, Everyone passes the start point, But it seems the board just stays the same. My pieces will move six spaces up, But then I have to pick the top card, It sends me to jail and makes me lose a turn, Such a simple g...

    College is only months away, And then I'll be at home, By myself waiting for the call, Hearing the silence to know I'm alone. You taught me my letters, Taught me how to tie my shoe, So whenever I do these things, I'll always think of you. Even though we fight, The times y...

    I couldn’t wait to have her in my reach again. The school year strolled by so quickly, but I still longed for her every single day to the end. During the last month, she rarely called me, so then again—I was nervous. Did she move on? Or was she busy? Looking through the drips of May showers thro...

    Margaret Mead, an American anthropologist, once stated, “Never doubt that a small group of committed people can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.” I’m sure the Freedom Writers have definitely proved Margaret Mead’s theory correct. The Freedom Writers were very tro...

    The sun was beginning to set in the backdrop of my photo. The orange and pink sheen of natural light hit her face at an angle. With only a trace of makeup, she was beautiful. Heck, she was beautiful without the makeup, too. As the wind picked up, the brunette curls that once nested above the small o...
