“The Crane Machine” by Maggie Deese
Students file in one by one, each followed by their specifically chosen bus buddies. Their laughter echoes through the bus as they plop down with hefty backpacks full of useless things their parents insisted they not bring for a two-day field trip. The last student to file in quietly is Margret Greene, squeezing her own backpack so tightly that the zippers threaten to bust. She takes the only seat left in the very front of the bus, no specifically chosen friend to take the place beside her. She tucks a stray lock of hair behind her left e...
“Ruslan: Tortilla” by Rhondalise Mitza
Dear Mum, I’ve dyed my hair green and decided to go away for a while, to find my true calling. I may travel, I may hitchhike, I may go to college, but all I know is I won’t be here any longer. I have several tattoos now and I’m sorry I didn’t tell you but I didn’t see the point. I didn’t see the point because it would only make you mad, and you know, despite all the things I’ve said to you and dad, I never meant to make you mad. I meant to ma...
“Met at the Airport” by BRoOkE HAs A COwBoY HAt
“Plane 832 is leaving in thirty minutes, please go to the terminal. Plane 832”the loud speaker yelled. Brooke started walking quickly towards the terminal. That was her next plane. “Woah! Hey, watch where you’re going! You just ran into me,”Brooke cried. There was a girl who looked up from her phone at Brooke.“Sorry, I just really need to get to Terminal 15 for Plane 832, but I’m lost. Can you help me?”the girl asked.“Sure, I’m heading there, too,”Brooke replied,”Follow me.” There was silence at first, just the t...
“Under the Tree, by the Brook.” by Katy S.
A girl, too young to be called an adult, too old to be called a child, sat down under the tree by the brook. Distant echoes of laughter floated down to her from the picnic. She was not down here by some cruel, petty, exclusion. The other girls were kind, and one might come by, and gesture to her, to come and talk with them. She hoped one would not. It wasn't that she, by any means, disliked them. It wasn't that she didn't find pleasure in talking, necessarily. It was ...

“Hello!” by Holly Pierce

Ava liked Raine, and decided she would be a good friend. “Do you want to be best friends with me?” “Sure.” Raine smiled at Ava. Ava took Raine’s arm and pulled her over to the toy cars.

“Saving Stories” by 𝔸. 𝕋𝕣𝕚𝕟𝕘𝕒𝕝𝕖
It was one of those days when the sky dimmed and all you wanted to do was curl up with a book in a nook of your bedroom with your favorite brand of tea. One of those days when you looked out the window and saw nothing but the faint glow of promising sunshine behind a towering shield of grey clouds. One of those days where you just sat around all day listening to the serenity that was brought with the soft pitter patter of rain on your front door.That was the day that she met him.The forecast called for a short break in the s...
“"Not So Bad" ” by Cynthia Prokarym
The morning Dodie met Braden, she was secretly sulking inside. She sat in the porch swing, swaying a little as she tried to read The Key to Extraordinary to distract herself from her swirling emotions. The aroma of bacon and eggs slowly crept out of the house and found its way to her nose, letting her know what mom was cooking. Usually, breakfast was her favorite meal, but today she didn’t care as much.How could her mom just give up on her dad and then move forward with som...
“Tea or Coffee” by Natasha Arnold
“How would you like to start this?”Five minutes sober, Phineas sat with his head hanging low, his sloppy wet hair trickling from the rain. Earlier that morning, he had planned it perfectly: arrive at the meeting no later than 7:25 while refraining from the horrendous introductions. But finding the spotlight on him, it seemed that he had missed the mark.The quiet, cold church walls remained still as Phineas formed his words, carefully picking them. Anxiously, his hands rubbed together, his dilated pupils staring d...
“Every Silver Lining has a Cloud ” by Christina Steele
“Five, please.” “Absolutely,” he said, as he pushed the elevator button. And there we were, rising in our silver lining box. Damn, he was hot. That two-button navy business suit barely hid his muscles and broad shoulders as he leaned against the railing. And the goatee with a soul patch, sweet green eyes, and sinful grin... I averted my eyes as he shot a glance my way. The elevator buttons showed flo...
“Friendship Comes First” by Adrie Byman
I’d seen her around but never thought to say anything. Maybe it was a trip to the bathroom where we’d acknowledge each other with a slight nod. Or we’d end up sitting next to each other but find our conversations limited to what we were doing in class that particular day. But something about her threw me off. Maybe it was her positivity about each and every bad situation. And to be honest, I looked up to her. Admired her. God, Eden is one of the top cheerleaders in the squad. And really? She was beautiful, with her stunning green eyes an...

“The One” by Claire Taylor
People often talk about love at first sight. Sometimes they say that you'll know who The One is right when you meet them. I, for one, think that is a big, stinking pile of bull-crap. If you think you've fallen in love with someone just by seeing them, you probably need to go see... someone about that. You've got a problem. The reason I'm thinking about this so much is because the first seventh-grade dance is coming up. This year, people will take dates to the dances. These twelve- and thirteen-year-olds will foolishly say I lo...
