“Solid Support” by Charles Stucker
Author's note- this is a variation on the opening of a novel about Red Ronin. I have posted five, one for each prompt, as an ambitious attempt to support the big anniversary of Reedsy. They all follow separate characters, but I recommend reading "Devil Take the Hindmost" last because it has the largest cast, several of whom are introduced earlier. Solid Support The call is the sort I alwa...
“"GOT THE SUPERPOWER LOVE I ALWAYS WANTED"” by Swati Sharma
The Secret changed my life and I am abundantly grateful for the life I am living now. Several years ago, I had been married to an emotionally abusive man. I had a job that required me to have a partner, and I had one permanently assigned to me. Once we got to know each other, I realized that my work partner would have been my perfect partner in life, the ...
“All Moms with Superpowers ❤️” by POOJA SARMALKAR
Superman received powers from the sun, and Batman bought his powers with family money. I never would have expected to know these facts in my single days, but now I have two boys—one who is almost four and obsessed with anything “super.” It’s strange to think that to him I am hugely powerful. I ’m the person that solves mysteries, fights his battles and heals his wounds with a kiss. Insti...
“Gravity in the Mist” by Katrina Lee
The pain of thought tortured many. He flung himself down in a rickety chair in his dusty apartment, feeling the ghost of thoughts come on like tidal waves—relentless pursuit with a water baton raised until he succumbed and prepared himself for the unceremonious thump of impact, the blow that’d knock him out cold; that was what recalling one’s hurtful memory felt like. He was trying to recall what it had felt like. His exhalation caught in the thorax, never arriving in...
“An Unexpected Powerful Treasure.” by P. Jean
(Write about someone or something that has a superpower.) The boy sat on the flat rock by the stream, the words on the page fading as the light faded. It was the very best part of the day, the back breaking work of the day done, a meager but tasty meal over and then his personal few hours with the books. ~~~~~ Passing by that day, on his way to nowhere...
“Tears of a titan” by Connor H
I eat, work, save, sleep repeat. Eat, work, save, sleep and repeat. The same process 365 days, 52 weeks. I get no breaks, no life and no enjoyment. As a child I thought having superpowers would be cool. I could be anyone I wanted, and I choose to be a superhero. I would be able to fly wherever I want, save people and everyone would love me, and I would ride a wave of euphoric emotions all day long. <...
“THE PUDDLE DIPPERS ” by Barbara Burgess
"Hi Dad, can you look after Arianne today for me? Work phoned. They want me to attend a conference as the boss has called in sick." "Yes, no problem Vikki." "Great Dad. I'll be there in about thirty minutes? See you shortly." Vikki put the phone down, stood at the mirror, tidied her hair and checked her makeup. "Are you ready, Arianne? Take your hiking boot...
“Blair Kimora” by Arushi Ramayanam
Chapter One Midnight The cold harsh midnight breeze seemed to have slapped my face. As if were saying: “You shouldn’t be out here at dark!!”. But of course, I didn’t listen. Then my ears heard a booming voice coming from the cavern. It sounds as two men were bargaining. “Look here oldtimer! 50 gold pieces for the labors. You’ll never get a better offer than this!” I walked ...
“Angel Heart” by Jane Andrews
It was gone six when Marie finally finished her shift at the homeless centre. Wrapping her scarf around her neck for protection against the chill November air, she left the building, longing for the warmth of her tiny flat and the companionship of her cat. She loved what she did at the centre, but it wore her down sometimes. It was good to know she was providing a service for people who needed i...
“Souperpower” by Rayhan Hidayat
Ava pants her lungs dry at the top of the hill. Finally. A little cottage with a mint-green roof is ahead, just like the bartender had said before he’d kicked her out for being a “minor,” whatever that means.“Come back in six years,” he’d said with a warm twinkle in his eyes, “and your first Scotch will be on the house, I promise.”Ava reckons that six years is an awful long time to wait for a free drink, so she’d pulled out her notepad and sc...
“Magical Heist” by Senthil Matheswaran
It is a universally known truth that if you do something criminal, you must be punished by being sent to prison. Well, Matthew Holmes didn’t exactly do anything criminal but was involved in a robbery. Matthew and his friend were both involved in the crime. Last night Matthew was arrested and kept in custody all night. But something strange was happening in the priso...
“THE DREAMWALL” by Devanshi Garg

Unlike other kids, Julius never missed his parents; his grandmother ha...
“Nothing More” by Tiffy H
All Zia wanted was to disappear. Nothing made her happy. Nothing made her smile. She felt pain deep down in her heart, and she just wanted it all to go away, to stop. Zia looked at herself in the bathroom mirror. All she could see was a broken heart girl that just wanted life to stop. How did she get to this point? Of all people, Zia never thought she would be a depressed person. She never thought that she, of al...

“Karmic Energy” by Samantha Salomon
Trigger warning: domestic abuse “I threw my hands forward and I pushed all of the negative energy towards him. I felt this big 'whoosh' of forces, and when I was done, I knew I had done something I wasn’t supposed to do. I’m no saint, however. You know how sometimes you just can’t help it? The next morning he woke up with a broken tooth. It was hilarious. He came into the kitchen and his tooth was split in half, right up the center! It happened while he was asleep. Serves him right!” ...
