More and more werewolves jumped from the forest whilst the convoy slowed, but the men in Mountbatten's vehicle had their own trouble to worry about. The two on the roof were trying to pry their way in. The armour held against multiple blows, though it bow…Posted 38 hours ago
"Not who you were expecting?"
The snake dropped from the branch, out of view before emerging mere heartbeats later - as a wolf. Its cold yellow eyes weighed heavily on Rahmi's neck.
"I doubt there are any other shape-shifters here, so I'd wager you are e…Posted 1 month ago
One night, when I was nine years old, my parents and I were working on packing things into our cart. Then we heard screaming, and saw fire, and smoke.
"Noleka, get down!" my mom hissed, shoving me under the cart.
I couldn't do anything but watch as three …Posted 10 days ago
My name with foul insinuation's tarred
By people who seek easy victims meek
To charge with crimes in public. Life is marred
And razed for me. Now, everywhere I seek,
I picture enemies in friends I knew
Before this whole fiasco. Do they now
Believe tho…Posted 17 days ago
My life, in recent months, has been o'erfull.
There's too much going on, inside my heart
And head, to parse, to handle. As for art,
I've had no spoons to work. I'm gath'ring wool,
Bereft of words, o'ercome. I've been a fool
Both in and out of love. How ca…Posted 11 days ago
I don't think I answered her, but she figured out all the same. Both dead. She held me tightly, trying her best to comfort me. I remember her meeting up with the others, faintly. Those who escaped the attack. I can't say I remember the rest very well, but…Posted 10 days ago
The thing that spoke to me had the face of a dead god but used the voice of my father. I had known to expect this. It was a by-product of the bonding ritual that gave a semblance of life back to this former deity. Not that any of the gods ever truly died,…Posted 2 years ago
"Stop running, dummy!"
"You're trying to kill me, and I kind of don't want to die!" The cyan girl leapt up onto a building, shooting bright blue balls of energy at her attacker.
"Oh, don't worry so much! It's nothing personal. I hate all your kind!" the…Posted 1 month ago
A beam of blinding white light shot down from a sky thick with clouds, centering on Kym and bathing her in a gentle warmth. Under the intense brightness of the light her sweatpants and rumpled hoodie seemed to lose their color before fragmenting into piec…Posted 28 days ago
I saw God today.
At lunch time.
Surfing on the back of a lorry.
I was crossing the footbridge over the main road between the office and the supermarket when a figure caught my eye. He was laughing, his long hair streaming behind him in the slipstream,…Posted 3 years ago
"How many died?" The lighter one asked the other.
"Too many, nearly all. How many escaped?" She replied.
One summoned her vine-entwined rod, the other her scythe.
"We should take care of them, shouldn't we?" The lighter one asked.
"They'l…Posted 1 month ago
There is no Christmas morning planned this year.
We might not even see a Halloween.
The doom-predictions' date will soon be here,
And our defenseless bones will be picked clean.
We can see the waters rising, see the waves;.
They claw and grope and maul …Posted 1 year ago
I wish I could tell them how beautiful the funeral was. The things everyone said were so touching. Even Aunt Agnes, though I know she was full of shit, talked sweetly about her "beloved nephew" (that she hadn't spoken to since I was 5).
I wish I could te…Posted 2 years ago
It had only been a few months since the invasion. Aliens had killed a lot of humans, others were just missing.
Or, with any luck, if such a word was appropriate, they were still alive, but being used for research. No one dared try to imag…Posted 2 months ago
He trudged through the sand, up and over great dunes of the stuff, while the wind blasted him with even more of the fine grains. Visibility was shit, and he walked more by instinct than anything. He'd long ago lost his way. The gale-force storm did nothin…Posted 1 year ago
How I scream
Louder I scream
When did I become this person
I tear myself apart
And lose the pieces along the way
There's no going back from here
But that's okay
How I don't know
But forward is the only way to go
The tears prickle, always ready
Brimming fu…Posted 4 years ago
