“FAKE” by Angelina Tran
KNOCK, KNOCK!Summoning the courage, Julia frantically knocked on the door of Mark’s house, fidgeting nervously as she waited for the door to open.Creaking, it opened, and Julia took a deep breath. Mark stood in front of her wearing sweat pants and a plain white t-shirt. Crossing his arms, he raised an expectant eyebrow eyebrow.“Let’s do it.” She looked up at Mark’s tall figure.He nodded, having expected this. She sighed, exasperated with his...
“Don't Take The Money” by Lina Oz
She saunters stiffly beside him, her hands clenched into small fists at her sides. She looks directly ahead. Her counterfeit smile does not reach her cold blue eyes. Her long, satin magenta gown swishes around her feet with each step, a cascade of sparkles flashing before every photographer’s eyes.His pursed lips morph into a grin as he follows her into the light of the stage and looks out at the crowd, displaying perfectly white teeth. He pumps his fists in the air––to which the crowd hollers in glee––and flaunts his magenta bow t...
“Seeing You In a Different Light” by Amany Sayed
“Jack!” I whisper-shout at him. He pulls me into a random room and we plop down on the chairs inside. We take one look at each other and begin giggling. I cover my face with my hands in an attempt to silence them, but it does nothing to help.“We-ohhh my god.” I let out one last laugh before looking at Jack, who’s smiling, face flushed from our running before.“What now? Where are we anyhow?” There’s a small pamphlet on the table, and we reach out to grab it at the same time. Of course, him being him with his impossibly long a...

“My human love” by Radhika Diksha
They made me for the betterment of society, but right now all of my artificial intelligence is being used for cleaning laundry and washing dishes. I stare in the mirror. Dev made me with so much efficiency and hard work. I touch my cheeks, I can't feel my skin but I can see the beauty of my body, and it's mesmerizing.Beep! Beep! Beep! And a hologram lashes out from my iris, its Dev.“Hey Rox, how are you?”“I'm fine but you are not allowed here?”“Yeah, I know it. See Rox your chemistry is lackin...
“Piano Room” by Claire Elizabeth
The music slowly faded out as we sang the last note of the song in unison. Noah and I locked eyes as I slowly leaned closer to him. His arm was already around my back, a calculated gesture he made in the third verse. As the music came to an end, he leaned down and connected our lips. I rushed the microphone to the side of my face to give us the smallest bit of privacy from the cameras and crowd. Just ...

“Masquerade” by Philip Clayberg
“We are divorced, like everyone else in Moscow.” –Katya Orlova (The Russia House by John le Carré)----------I tried not to stare at her. “You've got to be kidding, Sasha.”Her dark eyes were serious. “I'm afraid not, Dmitri.”“What could possibly have put that sort of idea into your head?” I asked.“Because we're both poor,” she said. “Something I don't enjoy being.”“Nor do I,” I said. “I'm not sure we can convince th...
“Fake-Dating The Enemy” by Akshaya Rajan Babu
Clara looked at her watch, for the umpteenth time. Yes, it's twenty minutes past 10am and no, her date still hasn't shown up! Aaargh! She knew agreeing to that blind date had been a mistake. When her best friend Alexa pleaded her to go on a date with her brother's teammate's roommate’s cousin (don’t even ask me how they managed to find such a random single guy), she knew she should have said no, lik...

“Dorothy in the Big City ” by Olivia June
The ancient bus grumbled and coughed to life as we passed the rusty metal sign signifying the end of our small town. Squinting through the dusty window I could see my little sister peering wistfully back at me. Seeing my concern, she smiled crookedly and swung her hand wildly through the muggy September morning air. I pressed my hand to the window and took a deep breath, fogging up the glass. Our parents had died tragical...
