“Goes Around” by Brenda Butler
Sky was notorious for the tea. It wasn’t bad enough that half of her clientele came to only get the tea. Her salon was the place to go and sit and pour it up. And most of the time, it was hot! It wasn’t a week that went by that Sky didn’t have the tea to serve. It was weekly but the day was always uncertain. It could me on a Tuesday or a Thursday and maybe even a Friday. She didn’t work on Sundays and Monday...
“tattle tale ” by Chika Cassandra
With its tapered top, the sun on its tip crowned it glorious. Chansardin temple. It stood tall one look and you’d know this was no ordinary place. This one temple, where the lost made home and unwanted are brought to. The priest taught these lives the ways of life, the art of life. And how to channel their energy. Evil hatches here and threatens to destroy the world, goodness nurtured within it blessing the world. But n...
“Tea Stains” by Rachel Aubertin
(Contains reference to infidelity.) The sky was raining tea that day. It was spilling over the rooftops. Pooling in the gutters. Dumping out the downspouts and washing through the sewer grates when Lavender ran up to Matcha’s bench under the awning. Her hoodie was dotted with droplets. She was half an hour late for her appointment “Sorry I’m late, but you will not bel-eeeve...

“Tea teaser” by Leila Shahtahmasebi
To tea or not to tea. That is the question. Or rather, to spill the latest gossip I had learnt over a cup of tea, knowing full well I had been explicitly warned not to do so. But it was such a juicy bit of news.. I had always been terrible at keeping a secret. You would have thought my friends would have caught on by now but I was adept at playing the innocent so I had always managed to get away with spilling the ...
“To See Hawaii” by Sarah O'Donovan
-Donna’s POV- I walked through the random assortment of tress with the sun beating down on my skin in intermittent bursts through the leaves. I turned to see Colm admiring, what most people would consider just an ordinary crack in the ground. I sauntered on over to just outside arms reach of Colm when he urged me to wait. “Look at them all,” He gestured with his index finger outstretched to just in front of my sh...
“Bleeding Seconds” by Joseph Lancaster
“I never really thought of myself as a vindictive person." - Liam MountebankLiam sunk his shovel in the grave, leveraging his weight against the frozen soil. Even though he took a measure of pride in his conditioning, the work was still tasking. Perspiration would coat his forehead, and then be whisked away by the chill, prevailing winds. He soundlessly tossed another heap of dirt to the growing pile beside him. The ground felt almost like stone, so much so that Liam still wondere...
