“Unknown Rooms and Rosaries” by L.J Sunwing
“Truth or dare?” The boy slips down next to his girlfriend, pulling his knees close to him while mirroring her stance. He ruffles his blonde hair and tugs at it. She had asked him to play a game, something to engage with each other after several fights, the two had had tension for the past two weeks. Usually ending in a squabble, with one of them being upset with the other. This was supposed to be a reckoning, an olive branch. Would it work though?“Dare.” The girl rolls over, her large eyes peering into him. She smiles at him with ...
“When Opposites Contract” by Grace Ogren
Joe was a man of few words, but the ones he spoke were more valuable than anyone else’s. His speech was in bold, swaying in italics, in constant capitalization and always underlined. To me, at least. It was hard to even hear him sometimes. I was used to leaning in, getting closer to his dark, ever-changing hair and the juniper smell he stole from the woods. The extra effort was worth it time and time ...
“The Game” by Carol Carll
The Meeting. The belief that he would kill still sent spiders down my spine. I wrapped my fingers more tightly around my cup of coffee. 2 "No wonder my fingers are stiff and sore. I'm clutching everything tightly." We had played Truth or Dare with Jen and Joe, Colleen, and a John, we didn't know. We played it at Joe's, as usual . That night it was quite diff...
“Lovely Game” by Jahson Clarke
A.... soft, silent, sacred breeze traveled. Beer bottles clanked as footsteps shifted the dirt. The sweet aroma of bitternut hickory burning- seduced the midnight air. "Your Turn", she said. A rambunctious belch rang through the calm night. A middle-aged man with a beer gut and reeking breath of one too many beers, sat down in the chair. "Umm...I dare you to make out wit...
“A Chicken and a Liar” by Sara Shaffer
The girls around her were snickering. It was Jessica’s turn and now they all knew she had a crush on Brent, the dumbest boy in their class. It was embarrassing, but it was the right kind of embarrassment. Jessica blushed lightly but she looked beautiful in her blushing and the six girls all bent closer, now part of her secret. “Ew! Brent? Why? He’s, like, so dumb,” Amber said. The girls laughed and laughed and t...
“The last time we played” by Edward Savage
“Give me a drink”, Lisa giggled, waving her empty glass in the air. Daniel laughed and leaned forward with the bottle of vodka and tried to pour some into the glass that was weaving above the coffee table between them. “Hold still dammit!” complained Daniel trying to match the motions of the glass. The pair were well on their way to being rat-arsed. They weren’t the only ones mind you. M...
“Marnie's Truth or Dare” by Dale Josef
It was in Belinda's spacious kitchen, with its white-painted cupboards, its ten-foot ceilings and its chintz curtains that the idea was first hatched. The women were seated round the big old wooden table. They were all college-age, attractive and fairly brimming with new ideas and enthusiasm. "OK truth or dare?" said Belinda. She'd been more or less the leader of the group for the ...
