“Butterflies in Guanajuato” by Eric D.
Me and Kylie were best friends, a mutual attachment bonded through empathy for each other's anxieties. I remembered the first day we met early in the school year in math class. I noticed her sitting in the back of the classroom trying to avoid the teacher's gaze by burying her face in her text book. She looked so uncomfortable and shocked when she was called out once to answer a question in front of class. I could see a...
“Better Things to Come” by Maddie Heritage
My mothers best friend would visit us every week. Clairette. I loved her name, so much more than my own. "But Dawn, your name is beautiful!" she said. "Your name is a reminder that better things will come." She always talked of our kingdom as a dark place, that was about to get better soon. I didn't know what was wrong with the place back then, but I do now. Our q...
“HEY HUMAN” by Priti Zha
SO, how does the story of humans began. GOD created humans, gave them feeling, emotions , speech of language to speak and express themselves. But human psychology created "INTROVERT AND EXTROVERT" by the way it is true or not I'm not aware but as far as I have read. Extroverts are banana and Introverts are like pomegranate, how much is true I don't know but let's begin with the story. Nia was a girl who was very...
“All the 'Hey Mels'” by Nivana Oliver
"Don't worry, Mel can do it. She's great with people""Mel? Oh, Mel's really fun, she'll do great""God! What are you so worried about Mel? you'll probably do the best out of all of us"Yeah, you're right. All of you are. I'll probably do fine. I'll probably make it. I'll probably be the best out of you all.Probably.For as long as I can remember, in my head, there are two mes'. The me I want to be. And the me I am. The me I want to be is bright, she adores people and the things they bring with them. She's l...
“Kerplunks written in the month of Luglio” by J. Storbakken
With closed eyes I hear the sound of a kerplunk coming from somewhere in the lake, the classic sound of kerplunk and splash, and hearing this sound brings a few scattered thoughts to the surface of my mind. I think of the interview, which I’ve watched at least ten times on Youtube, between Neal Cassidy and Allen Ginsberg. Both, well into their years by the time of the recording, are not so keen on each other, or so it seems. The reasons are given, somewhat sporadically, by Neal. He responds to Allen’s...
“My story is entitled Robert Jackson the young writer and an Actor is known as an extrovert by everyone but in reality he is an introvert.” by Prince Brempong
My story is entitled Robert Jackson the young writer and an Actor is known as an extrovert by everyone but in reality he is an introvert.An Introvert is a personality type characterized by traits such as reserve, passivity, thoughtfulness and a preference to keep emotional states private. Introverts most comfortably interact in small groups with one-on-one relationships and are always energized by spending time alone. Other people observe Robert Jackson as an extrovert because he has a personality type that can be charac...
“Fire Station Red” by Caroline Greaser
He fiddled with the string of his hoodie while I uncapped the fire station red. On the picture of the color at the nail station in Target it was a vibrant red, gleaming and smooth for an effortless polish. In person it was slightly rusty looking, missing the last bit of sheen. I gave it a good shake, but I’d had the color for three years, maybe more, and there was no achieving the equivalent of the brand-new glamour. Maybe it was better that way, closer to an actual fire station years in the running, with little bits of dust and rain and ...
“Social cage ” by Amanda Trueman
TW: suggestion of abuse, profanity People love making false assumptions, judging people based on nothing. They think they’re intuitive when really they’re too lazy to actually figure someone out. Trust me I’ve experienced this exact notion for most of my life. I’m basically the founder of the “ ignorant asshole theory.” As of right now, I’m experiencing this exact thing. My friend invited me out to a club, s...
“Utterly Spent for Others” by Sarah Martyn
I'm good at portraying what I want on the outside but honestly, my true self is utterly spent for the sake of others. ------ At my job, I'm interpersonal and for the most part, clients always enjoy my service. Those I serve and even those I work with might guess I'm the "social butterfly" and am an extrovert, but that's because they think introverts can't interact well socially... Or maybe they th...
“Preserverence of my soul ” by M. M.
My shift is almost over, as I pack away the leftover shoes into their boxes, after customer's try them on, wanting another pair. This one is too tight, no, I don't like the color. I prefer less of a heel... but I love the style,..so on and so on. Often at the end of a day, I feel exhausted, drained, like people suck the life out of me literally. Other days....I just want to be home, alone. Feeling the utter quietness of my apartment as I close the door behind me gives me the sense of security, but on the exterior my persona, well, everyo...
“The Perks of Reality” by Annalisa D.
On a balmy August day, I sat on a park bench under a maple tree with a book in my hands and fell madly in like with Joaquin. I won’t go as far as to say love, I didn’t know him and I’m not that crazy. Or so I hope. Anyway, the book was about aliens, I think. Usually, they were. After reading only one sentence, I looked up from the pages to the sound of his wheels rolling across the concrete in front of me. The way his gray t-shirt billowed around him from the speed at which he rode cause a butterfly flu...
“Finding yourself ” by Shreyan Gaurab
AA breezy music with two good looking chic very close to each other and serving as a metaphor for the already beautiful set design that they will be ,of course, remain very together .... Forever . Yep it's a musical a very predictable one. But for juju a 11th graded student, it is nothing short of documentary. Matter for torturing urself with a boring musical? Love in the air friends. From asking him doubts even when t...
“Wacky Wild Bewildering Linda” by Noelle C. Lee
Wacky Wild Bewildering Linda My best friend. Yes, maybe an unpopular choice for such but she wormed her way into my heart. At first, Linda just pissed me off causing lots of eye rolling. Her sense of crazy was off-beat and bold. With no shame she would sneak up behind elderly men whose only support to stand upright was a walker, and approach while licking her lips slowly moving her tongue around her mouth as she t...
“I'm Home” by Zainab R
“Good evening, Mr. Wilson. Very happy to see that you made it!”, I exclaimed in a chirpy voice as I welcomed one of my guests. I was standing on the side of the large woody front door of the hall I had booked for today’s event, as I welcomed more guests with my warm and welcoming smile. “You look beautiful, Miss Davis", said one of my elder employees I knew well, as she entered the hall.I was wearing a simple yet elegant black sleeveless mermaid dress, which was ac...
“Just James Freed ” by Hope Savali
Just James Freed I knew James Freed from our Kindergarten days as the kid who loved clowning around with the boys in our class. He was a happy sort of kid who always had a goofy smile on his brown face, and I thought he was too childish. Can you imagine a five-year old saying something like that about another five-year old?I used to watch him playing catch outside and wondered how vibrant his life was with how he always seemed to be sporting that same grin every time I saw him. Lily, who was my b...
