“The Adventurous Tragedy” by Keerththan 😀
Sitting on the soft sands of the beach, I was watching the stunning sunset.It was finally time to go to work!Wearing my favourite swimsuit, I leaped into the vast water of the sea. I was an underwater explorer and I loved diving.A new species of fish was expected to be found in the ocean and I wanted to see it lively. The first person to find out the species to see it live had the opportunity to name the species. Thus, I wanted to be the first one.I put on my oxygen mask and swa...
“The Choosings—Part 2” by ᗩᗴᖇIᑎ ᖇᗴᗷᗴᑕᑕᗩ ✨🌈
I take deep breaths in a futile effort to calm myself. You’re here—you’ve succeeded. Why are you scared, Juniper? The moon spirits won’t hurt you. You’re their slave. Calm down.I rechannel my deep breath into a drawn-out sigh as I glance around for the millionth time. I’m shut in a box—or at least, it feels that way compared to my airy bedroom. This place is a small room made of all metal. I’m shackled to a chair in the eerily quiet space. When I volunteered as a tribute, my dad protested. He’s the king, but he...
“The Simple Meet” by Corey Melin
It was another beautiful day for Stewie as he crawled out of his cardboard box to face the shiny, round orb in the sky. “Another great day to show everyone my talents,” he said with a beaming smile. He crawled back into his box and grabbed his last bag of Doritos someone was kind enough to give to him. He opened the bag and st...
“Maybe It Won't Be So Bad” by BRoOkE HAs A COwBoY HAt
"Mom! Come on! I don't want to spend weeks with her! She's probably a total grunge!" Michael stared at his mom, Caroline, who was packing his bag."No. I am taking this trip to Hawaii because I need a break. And staying with Laura and her parents were our only option. You need to stop whining and grow up!" Caroline turned to Michael, and he was about to protest again. But then he saw the tears that were threatening to fall out of Caroline's eyes. Without another word, he walked out of the room and into the living room. Michael flopp...
“Legend Of Evie ~part 1~” by B. W.
its been a while since i've last watched avatar the last air bender so if i forget anything or do something wrong then tell me in the comments. Water. Earth. Fire. Air. The avatar was the only one that could master all four elements. They were able to keep peace, even stopping a few wars (mostly caused by the fire nation.) before they ever fully began. Though 16 years ago the avatar ...
“All the Colors of the Sky” by Amiable Sorceress
There are reasons we are living.Reasons why the sky turns orange and pink and yellow at the same time,Reasons why we have pets to make us happy,Reasons why we travel, Reasons why we have family and friends,Reasons why we have to see all the colors in the sky. The sky turns a bright purplish orange from my perch on the roof, a bruise staining the perfectly blue evening. My uncle’s footsteps echo all the way upstairs until he’s standing above me, covering the purple orange blob ...
“Always Human” by Christina Li
I met her at the edge of the world. She sat with her feet dangling over the Edge, the place where the stars touched the earth. I’d almost tripped when I saw her. From the distance, she looked like a marble statue, the ivory glow of the moon softening the edges of her silhouette, turning her hair into the colour of winter snow. No, not a statue, I thought as I approached, squinting into the darkness. A ghost. Perhaps foolishly, I thought of my father.<...
“My Best Friend Wants to Die” by Thom Brodkin
My best friend wants to die. It is very important as I tell you my story that you know two things: the first is the story is absolutely true and the second is I have no idea what to do. I guess it’s also important you know there are so many things that could have happened differently and if they had I would not be able to tell this story.Young men, oftentimes, make big decisions for insignificant reasons. One such instance happened when I decided to join the military in 1988. I joined the Army but I could just have ...
“Devil In Disguise ” by Jorja Orne
Braddock, Pennsylvania. Marla and her father’s daily routine was always the same, ordinary, people would say. Wake up, work, go home. Marla happened to love this routine. She also had friends in the mix of her schedule. She generally loved her life, but not as much as she loved her Dad. “One caramel frappuccino for you!” Marla exclaimed as she handed the frappuccino to the customer.

“A Deathly Friendship” by B Easton
There are many thoughts one experiences as she’s hit by a car. The first is pain as her body collides with the ground. The second is confusion as the agony makes her forget what she’s doing. The third is anger because she realized the car had run a red light, and the forth is annoyance as a in the midst of all this, one of the pedestrians apparently thought the best course of action was to nonchalantly stroll over and slap her back and forth across the face.“Up and at em, Sweetheart.” His voice was young but weathered, and every wo...
“Friends From High Places” by Mollie Rodgers
August 14th, 1959 was a momentous day for seven-year-old Dickie Mulroney; that morning he lost his first ever tooth and later, a man fell from the sky.Dickie sighed as he slapped the sponge on the truck’s side. His shoulders ached from scrubbing the buildup of dust and squashed flies. He wished he were with his cousins right now, tossing burned out light bulbs into the old quarry, but his father had instructed him to wash the truck until it gleamed. “You’re not a boy anymore, Dickie,” his father told him after his baby t...
“All in a Day's Work ” by Lyn M
I struggled against the bonds in the dark, but made little headway before the thick, wooden door flung open. Of course, I could only assume this was what had occurred because of the change in colour of the light filtering through the t-shirt tied around my eyes. I stopped moving, knowing my stillness would be a much more effective way to communicate just how much trouble the children were going to be in. “Oh my...

“Duel in the Lumber Yard” by I. F.
“What’s taking so long?” Shelly yells through the closed window.“Patience is the greatest virtue, Shelly,” Howard answers.“There are cars here, you could have stopped at a gas station, this is public indecency.”“And risk driving with a full bladder?”“Shut up, Howard.”Howard obliges. Silently, he finishes his business, zips up his fly, climbs back into the car, and hits the gas. The road is wide and nearly empty, a highway somewhere off in the country. The couple is seate...
