They are around us , they look at us from above, they see us and they want to help. When you look up you see the past , you see beyond , you see the stars and you see ......Written in the stars are our answer and our past, written right in front of us are what we can remember. That was what Maddie always use to tell us when we were little or so we remember. We are only ants in a working environment ...
“Singing and Powers” by BRoOkE HAs A COwBoY HAt
“And all along I believed, I would find you. Time has brought your heart to me, I have loved you for a thousand years. I’ll love you for a thousand more!” I finished the song and smiled at all of the people looking at me. “Bravo! Bravo! More, more!” I heard everyone echo this, but I shook my head while laughing.“All of’ y’all know I can’t do another-on the piano. Who says we do a little line dancing? Cotton Eye Joe Time!” I had to raise my voice to make everyone hear over their loud shouts. I grabbed my guitar ...

“Laxmi got the power !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!” by Alkaa Sharma
Laxmi got the power !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! “Laxmi” ! “Why are you banging the plates? Wash them properly”…….shouted the landlord pointing towards the lean , weak girl sitting in the corner of the kitchen washing the huge number of utensils. As she was merely 10 yrs old , she wasn’t able to grip the plates too w...
“Squash That Spider!” by 🐬ᴬᴬᴹᴱᴺᴬ ᴷᴴᴬᴷᴵ🐬
MARKI sneak around, though she's wondering why. I have powers, and she desperately wants me to use them.Not about to give in, I ask, "Hey, you ok?""Come on, Mark, you know I'm not, just use them already!" she hisses."I'll only use them if you use yours, and you'll only use yours in case of an emergency," I tell her, like I do every week.This time, I was too loud, and someone in the distance said, "Someone's there!"They run across the floor, their feet pounding on the ha...
“Perfectly adequate Agnes” by Marte Van Der Linden
Agnes Wolfe was born at the stroke of midnight during the first thunderstorm of the year.(Of course she was. Wouldn’t be much of a story if she was born at a quarter past eight on a Thursday morning, would it, or if it was partly cloudy with a 40% chance of rain in the afternoon?)As she drew her first breath, lightning struck the pine tree outside the window. It went up in a crackle of flames.“That’s a lucky omen!” said the midwife, placing little Agnes in her mother’s arms. “She’ll grow up to be...
“More Than Enough of Me” by Jordan De La Garza
After what had to be one of the longest bus rides in my conscious memory, I finally arrive at my stop: Rambutan Avenue. Fortunately, it’s only a quick four blocks to my street, but since the sun has already set, it seems much longer. I begin the walk at a brisk pace, making sure not to look drivers in the eyes as I go while checking behind me frequently to spot any followers. I stay close to the streetlights and away from dark areas. Even though I clutch both my keys between my knuckles and my heavy bag in my other hand, I know that I am ...
“A Choice ” by Katy S.
A sunny day, some eons ago.A young boy was sitting on some small rocks outside a rundown little cottage. He was grinding some indistinguishable, smushed plants, in a small mortar, with a crude looking pestle. Perhaps he was up to some mischief, and his quiet demeanor was due to guilt, or he was kept busy with some task, and it was due to patience.Either way, he was so attentive to his task, that he didn't notice an old, ragged, stooped woman who limped down the mossy cobble stoned path till she reached him, ...
“A Long Shot” by Charles Stucker
John sat in the back of the bar, watching the news. Everyone stared in horror at the unfolding events. A news anchor spoke tersely, "Reports from around the globe indicate this is not confined to the USA. Major cities in every continent report millions hospitalized and uncounted numbers dead. This plague, which came out of nowhere, appears to be the work of some previously unknown villainous mastermind." A man tap...
“The Phoenix” by A O
*Author note* I wrote this some time back for a contest where one had to fill in their own story between the first and last lines of Fahrenheit 451, by Ray Bradbury. *** It was a pleasure to burn. That isn’t the issue. It’s just plain unfortunate for you that you brought me up here to “[your] farm” to douse me and light me up. ...
“Monster” by Raquel Rodriguez
You are nine years old, a scrawny, introverted boy with one friend, the daughter of the Greene's - the family who's lived in Greene Haven for the largest amount of time. That's why the town was named after them. Ever since you were born, all you've ever heard are stories about 'the Chosen One' and their special abilities. All the stories that have ever been read to you are about the Chosen One, and you have many things memorized about them, including the fact that a new one is chosen every year. Although you admire the 'Chosen One,' every...
“Fire” by Catherine MacKenzie
The flames climbed higher along his body, his screams dying as he chokes on the smoke before he collapses in a heap of dead, charred flesh, still smoking even after the flames die. The flames seemed to cease with his heartbeat, snuffing out as abruptly as they began. The remaining screams of his young lover and newlywed wife, echoed in the air, carried on with the wind. Birds flew overhead. The crowd that had gathered a...
“ The Birthday” by Deepti Kumari
It was midnight. The clock was approaching to "12:00". She was sitting on her bed and waiting for the call from her mother to wish her "Happy Birthday". This is the first time she was so excited to celebrate her birthday even though her mother was not with her. Since childhood she didn't have a great experience on her birthday. She doesn't have that much friends because of her unique behaviour. Children usually abandon h...
“Mind-Reading...Seahorse?” by Aqsa Malik
“-as FUCK,” she enunciated those last words, presumably to either piss me off, encourage me to end the session, or both. Of course, I knew that she was in fact trying to do all this, with an added desire of getting me to probe. Like the mind reading counsellor that I am, I do exactly that. “And why do you think that seahorses are…” I pause to squint my eyes, treading carefully, “magical as fuck?”Her own brown almond eyes widen slightly. She’s surprised that I would mirror the casual profan...
“A Blizzard's Blizzard” by Leya Newi
Cara was staring at the broken finish line. Her heart thumped and she breathed heavily. Her hair was dripping, hanging limply over her shoulder. She smiled, then hurried off to change, dragging her eyes away from the broken finish line. Katie and Angelica, twins with identical dark hair and eyes, ambushed Cara as she came out of the locker room, clutching her wet towel and swimsuit. &n...
