The story so farThe stellar pixie Harriet Olson, and her elf friend Takeshi Trescothik, are running from the troll king and his army. After badly hurting her ankle Harriet ran away with Takeshi into the dark wood in search of a cave in which they can hideout. Chapter 3Harriet awoke the next morning; the sun was shining brightly above her. She was still wrapped in Takeshi’s arms, everything was perfectly fine, except for the fact that she was...
“A Dead Giveaway” by Mark Jackson
The real trouble started as soon as I opened the front door. There, under my porch, stood the six-six monster who had been stalking my girlfriend for over a year. The individual hairs of his buzz cut stood on end while fat droplets of rain oozed along the blade of his nose. His jacket collar was turned up and I knew by the expression on his face that opening the door had been my mistake.I tried to formulate some sort of defence, something I could say to warn him off, but nothing came to mind. He was the first to speak.
“Dinner at Susan's” by Rhondalise Mitza
The doorbell rang twice, and each time a different person was let into the house. The first time it was the plumber. He was a man by the name of Gabbani, and he had only just started plumbing, but he was grateful for the things he had and was never one to complain a lot. The second time the doorbell rang, there was the pizza man, standing like a delivery angel complete with a steaming box of pepperoni pie and a bottle of root beer. He had also just started working as a pizza man. It was his first job, seei...
“The Purple Pill” by Lilly Blossom
“Take the purple pill,” he said. It will make you feel higher than a kite at the top of Mt. Everest. Bennett was cute and he had also been my closest friend for the last two years. I trusted him, and I wanted him secretly, so I listened. My mistake. It was my 21st birthday and I was ready to come alive and introduce myself to the world, or at least Bennett. He was the funniest guy in the room and that sandy blonde hair did wonders for my imagination. His eyes were as light as the sky and his toned body was begging me to hold...
“The Misadventures of Three Musketeers :)” by Kelechi Nwokoma
Day 1My name is Denver Hooksworth. My friends- Raphael Clearwood and Dr. Clover Longbottom- and I have been washed up on an island. Our ship, The Great Sully, which was on its journey from Southerntown to Notherntown capsized and sank. Many of our comrades died and all of our possessions are lost, save the ones we had on us during the shipwreck. We are the only survivors.I was the first out of my comrades to awaken. At first, I thought Dr. Clover was dead because he was so pale and that Raphael had a co...
“The Door to Fiction” by Dalyane Deblois
Today is the first day that I, George, get to work with my best friend; we got a new job at the same place, the FCF. People know it is a Federal office, but its true purpose is known to only a few. FCF actually stands for the Federal Center of Fiction. Authors of fiction are all registered in files, but me and my friend have a bigger purpose than to classify files and papers. We are going to guard a door in the basement of the FCF building. We’re not supposed to say what it contains; everyone who went through that door never came back. B...
“Dead End” by Lata B
I fold my hands into fists, and I feel a rush of blood going through my body. “I'm not joking!” I shout as I try to calm myself down, but I already feel everyone's eyes finding there towards me. “Joie I believe you!” beck says “but not everyone else will. They’ll think you're crazy”. Before I can reply the bell rings and it's time to go to class. We head out of the cafeteria trying not to get smashed by kids swarming by. Before we go to our separate classes Beck looks around the hallway ...
“To Tame Our Biggest Fears” by Ariel I
Aaron finally emerged from his home, standing proudly on his front porch with a massive backpack on his back. Slipping from his hands was a densely packed duffel bag that contained a four-person tent. It seemed as though he was equipped to inhabit the Amazon rainforest for a week, rather than to go camping for one night on the outskirts of the neighborhood. Peter, Jill, and Cora were standing by the side of the road, laughing at Aaron’s failed attempts to thoughtfully carry himself down the steps. His three friends were each holding a sle...

“Beware the strange moon.” by Catherine Stevens
“Hey Carol, we’re going to the store for some munchies want to come along?” Brenda asked her friend. “I don’t think you and Sarah should leave the apartment tonight, did you see the moon?” Carol absently said as she gazed out the front room window. “Why should we stay home?” Sarah wanted to know, just catching the tail end of the conversation.&n...
“What's a friend?” by ℤ ℍ☮️
Kate wandered longingly down the path. Her big eyes hovering over anything that looked interesting enough. Little half-moons of green green clovers and little melodic bluebirds hopping along the branches.She had left her glossy green-apple sided house.In search of a delicacy, she hadn't ever tasted.She needed information on this important subject, desperately.Her first stop was Aunt Marie's home.It was a fiery redbrick house with a glossy br...
“Abbey Ruins” by Karen McDermott
Jasper is always on these neverending world tours with Hoffman’s Circus now, but back when I knew him he was just a klutz. Always showing off in front of girls, performing magic tricks that always seemed to involve him briefly holding their hands, doing tricks on his skateboard, playing with hacky sack or poi. Even with only me as his audience on our cycle rides around the outskirts of town looking for stuff for him to photograph, he was always jumping about. It’s surprising any of his photos actually came out in focus, really....
“Picnic escalation” by Deepti Venugopal
Every school kid has its own stereotypical tag. It is basically an unwritten rule of our school life. I believe a first impression should not be the bedrock for creating an image of a person. I have been a continuous target of this absurdity. I got the label of the quintessential shy nerd. Well, when people can’t distinguish between quiet and shy, this happens. I don’t see myself confined within the label of an introvert or an extrovert. We cannot divide the world into black and white. Our lives occasionally need a silver lining. Ev...
“Critical Fail” by Tim Law
Travis McBattle-axe tapped the bar with a scroll case while he smoothed his luscious blond beard.“This is it lads,” he rumbled. “Oh and lady of course!” he added swiftly, remembering the sorceress just before she zapped him.“What have you got this time?” moaned Dwayne the Shadow, unconvinced that anything the dwarf found exciting would be of interest to him.Sarah smiled, giving the feisty warrior a boost in confidence. He thought she looked great in her crimson gown.Popping the top Travis thumped the bottom of ...
