“The Bikini Barista” by Russell Mickler
“Hey, Simone,” I said. “Sorry I’m late.” I blew my nose in the tissue and sat in the chair. “Hi, Reed. It’s good to see you again! Looks as if you’re under the weather?” I stuffed the used tissue into my jean pocket. “Yeah, can’t shake this head cold. Isn’t COVID or RSV; I got my test results back this morning. It’s just the damn flu.” Simone smiled empathetically. “Still feel up for it today? We could always reschedule?” “Nah, nah,” I said, waving her off. “I’m good. Let’s get going.”...
“Everything is changing” by Beverly Romige
‘Do you know what this means? Everything is changing and you are going to have to grow up fast.’ Mom irately states. ‘And this is just the beginning. You are only 21 , haven’t finished school, unmarried, and now pregnant with a biracial baby by that asshole! Seriously? Have you told your father? What am I suppose to say to your grandparents! They will NEVER accept this. God I don’t even want to hear my dads response.’ She groaned as she threw her hands in the air in frustration. ‘And an a...
“Elf #1 Reporting ” by Kimberly Walker
Elf #1 ReportingEverything has changed since the Abacus, the first calculation instrument we used in this workshop. I realized how slow and unreliable it was. It evolved into the hand-held calculator and the modern-day computer. I know many think IBM built the first computer but here is how it happened; please keep this quiet.We elves invented the device that you all call the BlackBerry in 1790. It made it much easier to record...
“A Monster at Midnight” by Julie Squires
Twelve-year-old Caleb Prescott was afraid to go home.All he could think about was what his foster father was going to do to him when he got there.He stood motionless for a long time. Until the neon sign of the pizza joint across the street turned off, signifying the late hour.And Caleb knew it was now or never.Snapping out of his hypnotic trance, he looked down and was surprised to see the aluminum bar of his mountain bike between his knees; he’d been straddling ...
“Everything is Changing” by Sherri Stites
Juniper opened the door just enough to see who had knocked. She didn't have a peephole but wished she did. It would come in handy on days like today. The last thing she wanted was visitors. She was in no mood for chit-chat. All she wished was to be left alone. To wallow in self-pity. That's one reason she moved so far away from town. She wanted to be left alone. "Hello, I'm sorry to bother you, but, uh…you see, I ran out of gas, at least, I think that's the problem. Anyway, I wondered if I c...
“Amy's Gift” by Cassie Gibson
Amy turned slowly, gracefully in her white dress - her blonde hair cascaded over her shoulders and her eyes sparkled with malice. ‘Isn’t this perfect?!’ She squealed, ‘I think this is it, it’s ‘the one’’ she described the air quotes with her manicured nails. Alicia smiled gamely and tucked a strand of hair behind an ear ‘looks great on you,’ she bit back ‘…everything does’. Amy stared adoringly int...
“Crocs and Bunny Slippers” by Race McKee
Crocs and Bunny SlippersA Foray into Online DatingbyRace McKee Recently divorced, and feeling the need to put a few evil memories behind me, I took a job on the other side of the country. A headhunter reached out at the right time and convinced me it was time to go get my high-tech ticket punched so I b...
“The Natural Machine” by John Merino
The foul breath of technology choked everything. Sunlight was the color of urine from bad kidneys, and every day was lived underneath the churn of the new engine. Fumes spilled from East to West, oozing over California and then reaching down through the length of the Pacific in a striated arch, until the winds of the southern hemisphere caught them up again in a sharpened line of clouds that skewered the whole of South America like a rusted fishing hook, pushing into the continent at Chile and poking out at the border between Uruguay and ...
“Breathe In” by Susan Williams
“Breathe in…pull in from your core, another breath. Deeper now. Release it slowly…exhale through the mouth. Let all your negativity, self-doubt, and stress go, set it free. You are strong and you are amazing. And another breath in, this is a cleansing breath, hold it, four more seconds, and slowly let it escape, relax as you exhale, lowering the shoulders, good. Rotate your head and neck, slowly, stretching side to side. And reverse directions…one more time, then into position for Sun Salutation,” Jason’...
“Beauty Queen Brushoff ” by April GIBSON
“I’m worried about Annabelle.” The matter-of-fact statement was discharged into an otherwise silent room. Its recipient, a salt-n-pepper-haired gentleman in his early forties, was intently glued to the computer screen before him. “Yeah…” came his slow reply. “Yeah. She’s had to leave all of her friends. She knows no one here. She has very little interest in getting to know anyone. She has very littl...
“Correction” by Laurel Hanson
Correction“Are you sure you want this item?”Christine stared at the question blinking on the white screen. She’d never had this particular page pop up before, and come to think of it, she wasn’t at all sure she wanted to buy her son a pair of pizza socks. Sure, they were funny, but were they comfortable? Upon further reflection, it struck her that footwear decorated with cheese and pepperoni wasn’t that clever after all.“Thank-you, Amazon.” She clicked on the blin...
“This City Will Burn” by Abigail Cooper
“Everything,” Eden began, heart pounding in her chest. “Everything is changing.”She took a tentative step backward, dangerously close to the ledge. Piercing peaks rested underneath, whispering for her to just jump. It would be easier if she were to end it all now, instead of trying to talk some sense into this lunatic.He stood right across from her, an annoyed scoff escaping him.“Right, yes, and you expect me to believe that?”His voice was deep and crass; venom dripped from his words like a maddened sn...

“The University Student” by Alexander Hanna
The University Student“I don’t understand this world,” the university student agonized to himself. “What is this madness I’ve been thrust into?” Nighttime was never a good time for the university student. Exhaustion from reading through the many pages of human life and society throughout the species existence, combined with his anxiety and depression from thinking too much about the darker side of humanity, created a sharp strain on the crown of his skull. He rubbed the hair cove...
