“Pumpkin Spice Latte” by <inactive> .
Author’s note- this was inspired from Hololive’s newest English members. Their interactions are adorable and I used the same concept of phoenix and dark angel/grim reaper apprentice. Please go check them out ^-^ Also, this is one of my longest stories ever. I’m honestly kind of proud that I hit the 1,500 mark~ Some information you’d need- this story is set in a fictional world where everyone has spiri...
“Curled Leaves” by The-Burrowing-Owl- Author
Leaflitter wasn’t supposed to taste like this. Michael took another tentative sip of the warm drink. Even the smell seemed spot on, it was earthy and rich, with undertones of drying plant life. It was smooth and firm, and the taste on his tongue curled like piles of crisp autumn leaves. Leaflitter wasn’t supposed to taste like this. It wasn’t supposed to taste good. It should probably be muddy, not clean and calming.The young man looked up to match the obviously pleased face of his employer. “It’s good?” He smi...
“All the Things That Cannot Fly” by Scout Tahoe
The morning is swimming with threads of pregnant silver clouds by the time I thrust the key into the lock. I twist it around until the doors click open and shadows peck me on the cheeks. Shreds of dust whisper while I think about Kitty and her problems. I still don’t know why she asked me to open the shop’s doors today. Busy, dealing with daydreams, is what I wanted to tell her as my excuse. Instead I asked for...
“Kopi Kawa : The Leaves Coffee” by Amy Utami
The autumn has come, lead with it the breeze of winter, forced the leaves to give up on its green. The pavement had been buried by yellow, green, and red. The rain has changed its form, no longer a liquid refreshing element, but solid grassy leaves falls upon the change. The weather pushed me to wear more appropriate clothes, as short no longer protect me from what I needed. Only months left befo...
“Adorned in Blue” by Molly Leasure
Temperance Blue of Blue to Blue was a blue woman. Not literally blue, no, just grim. Her cropped bob was rigid, holding still even in the most torrential storm. A stark contrast to her skeletal frame, which held similar strength against winds that, say, an umbrella might--one donning a floor-length evening gown.Our Gothic temptress had eyes that reveled in voyeurism. Her fixated gaze could devour a full room, giving her an edge in people-watching. And in business. The business she adored, the business her patrons held abov...
“Warm Cups, Warm Hearts” by A J
From deepest ebony to melodic umber hues, from cream softened oranges to the greens that mature into a sea-spun sage - the fall had arrived and is as welcome as a long remembered song.The autumn had dressed for the coming season, donning her most vibrant hues. She had swept into our streets and woodlands with a humble boldness that invited the eye to see more than they otherwise might. We were are all so blessed to witness such beauty. There were the browns that come as some quilt to the earth, yet the rest are the hues of volcanoe...
“Once Upon An Autumn Evening” by Kylie Rudolf
Tracy Sullivan had been waiting in line for her usual, a cranberry scone and the newest autumn drink. This year was a salted caramel latte. Tracy thought about her young daughter at home and threw in chocolate milk and a large, buttery chocolate chip cookie. Just then, her phone started to buzz in her trench coat pocket. She picked it up and looked at the caller's identity, she did recognize the number. Tracy held the phone up hesitantly, a quiet raspy voice came through, a voice that would she thought she would never hear aga...
“The Drinks Of The Fall” by Bareera Samra
The door slid open and a gust of wind blew in. Almost immediately, I looked up from the counter to see a middle-aged man entering the café, his eyes trying hard to adjust in this environment. I was surprised. Our café was the most suitable and perfect for having morning tea or evening coffee. Our lights were the most appropriate according to the time of the day, bright yellow in the morning, light blue in the evening. Ri...
“Imposter” by L M
The mysterious young woman ambled into the quaint coffee shop, shades and a wavy balayage bob framed her face. Something about her commanded attention, yet she also blended in with the crowd of others nearby. The woman wore a beige trench coat dress and black leggings underneath, high heeled boots, and a watch. This was clearly a woman of business. Patiently, she waited in the line to order and finally relax in the coffee shop. An array of book shelves, tables and chairs, autumn decorations, the view of sunset colored leaves outside the w...

“Maple Corner” by Aubrey Maria ✌

“In the Process of Dying” by Julie Frederick
“I couldn’t possibly die on a Tuesday,” Ruth announced, with the flourish of a seasoned stage actress. She raised her cannulated hand to her forehead in a mock swoon. With her other hand she clutched the Pumpkin Spice Latte that I’d bought for her, strictly against doctor’s orders.“It had better be a Friday,” she continued. “That way you can drop by the morgue after work if you need to identify the body, then go out and get drunk to celebrate. And still have the weekend to recuperate.” She released her hold on the still ...

“Rise of the Fall Menu” by Kal Zone
Grim dawn had broken over the Java Jar Coffee Bar. It was never a kind day to be a cynic, Lenny the Latte thought, yet what choice did he have? The day had arrived, and they were coming. They were coming for his customers. They were coming for his caffeine. They were coming for his soul. But they weren’t coming for him. Lenny gazed out the Drive-Thru window, fixed wordlessly upon the autumn expanse. Chill winds blew through the trees, whose ardent verdure was seared with ochre. Soon the leaves would be engulfed, and in cinders fa...
