“Discovery” by Lisa Massimilla
David ran a hand through his hair and shifted in his chair. Taking a deep breath, he focused on the computer screen before him and read “The government is now considering a bill to limit drone use-”The sound of the apartment door opening followed by Jason declaring, rather loudly, how much he hated college, shattered what little concentration he had left. Leaning back in his chair, David turned to see his disgruntled roommate enter the living room.“Bad day?”“The worst,” he paused, look...
“Best Friends” by Jo Mulraney
Layla sat at the back screen door looking in. We'd been through the ritual of sliding the door open, closed, and open again, all the while her green eyes on me - a silent exchange. "Come sit outside," those eyes said, "Let's sit on the grass together. You can pat me and call me pretty girl.""I'm sitting inside," I say, "Are you in or out?"She settles on the mat and I slide the door closed once again. Her wide eyes stay on me, then narrow with consent as I sit back down at the table not more than six feet from her and in plai...
“At the Edge of Friendship” by Andrew Marble
We were kings of our own domain, ruling those endless summers together. Those summers where time was irrelevant and everything we did was full of meaning, full of adventure, full of a vigor we may never again know. Had we the choice, we would have spent every waking moment together. We fed off each other's spontaneity, zipping from one activity to the next, never worrying about the inevitable future that this one day will end. It d...
“The Blue Flame” by Paul Carney
The Blue Flame By: Paul Carney Soon after Grim and The Reaper started to take over the Earth, reports started filtering in about how ruthless they actually were. It was said that the conquest of these two super powered aliens with weird “V” shaped scars on their chests ...

Everyone stared at us when we walked in, after all, Avri was top of the class! Best grades in the grade!
“Lost Love ” by Erynne Eoff
It was two years ago that I lost my best friend, my lover, my soulmate. I’m ready to talk about it; I think. It started my freshman year when I was fifteen. I wasn’t very outgoing, which made it hard to make friends so I went online. A lot of them turned out to be fakes or just plain creepers; but out of them I met Joshua. He was sixteen and an introvert like me we just clicked. It sounds like some dumb teen movie but that’s what happened we instantly understood each other...
“Lemonade Stand” by Lauren Jones
I woke up to the sun streaming through my bright blue butterfly curtains. After I remembered what day it was, I jumped out of bed so fast I was lightheaded. Today was a very important day, it was the first day of summer! Fifth graded was officially over and I was free for three amazing months. I quickly threw on my official summer clothes, purple shorts, and my watermelon shirt. I also tied my ty-dye bandana around my forehead. I grabbed an apple from the counter as I was ...
“Letting Go” by Inna Douglass
In an old brick remodeled house that was once a gunshop at one time lived two best friends by the names of Doug and Inna. Doug and Inna met ten years prior and decided to live together and split the bills. They of course had their ups and downs like all best friends did but for the most part they enjoyed each others company. They worked hard all day and would come home and eat supper together and talk about their day and watch some television or maybe play a couple gsmes of scrabble then go to bed to get up to the same routine the ...
“Silence” by Daisy Collins
I open my crusted eyes and peer begrudgingly at my surroundings. The sprawling mess of clothes curled around my legs like the extremities of a tired beast. The semicircle of scattered notebooks spilling from the mouth of my open backpack. The mugs with lipstick stains adorning the rip with the pattern of an old-fashioned doily. The congealing takeaway container of… something? I squeeze my lids shut again – I’d seen enough. From my po...
“And So, We Feel Alive” by Noni Kuhner
I knocked gently on the huge wooden door. It didn’t matter; the air still shook with loud booms every time my knuckles tapped against it, as if I had pounded upon it with giant fists, but I was used to it now.No answer.I tried again, and again three deep, loud sounds echoed from within, but still there were no coming footsteps, and the door didn’t open.“Dee?” I called, “Are you home?” I tried the handle and found it opened easily. Out, but expecting me, then. That would do.<...
“In Eva's World” by Zosia Appleton
Pink hair, white shirt, gold buttons, brown skirt. Pink cheeks, white teeth, gold face paint, brown eyes. Eva holds the World in her hands. She’s still elated from the end of summer fair and her hair is knotted at the back of her head where she can’t see it, tangled from one too many rides. She stands in front of the mirror and pretends it is a c...

We knew we would become each other's biggest rival. In short: our relationship as friends was one of love and hate.“Aren’t all relationships?” he once asked me.I know there are ...
“(Ex) Best Friends” by Sophia Nelson
My best friend and I have known each other since kindergarten. We instantly clicked, forming an unbreakable bond. We had amazing sleepovers, went to each other's parties, joined clubs and sports together, hung out in all of our shared classes during school. We're in fourth grade now.
