Enter the world of The Gatekeepers: their star is on the rise, so hop on board for the ride.

Preface Lucy "Ms. Combs, I realize the school year is coming to an end, but that does not give you an excuse to not pay attention," Mr. Peters said, snapping me out of my daze and bringing me back down to earth. "Sorry," I replied quietly, wishing I could sink into my sweatshirt. I felt my face turn a deep red. He motioned for me to take out my earbud and I reluctantly did so....Read On

Hidden Cart

I dare say, that appears to be a duck.  I am perplexed as to how to proceed in our current, uh, 'situation'. Indeed, it troubles me also. In conclusion, bananas make excellent tissues  when you run out of elephants. I think this makes us more than simply gnu....Read On

Are We Friends?

"I'm confused." "How's that?" "I have a friend. She's young, but mature for her age." "Yes?" "I thought we were friends. I wonder." "You have to be a little clearer here." "Okay, so the thing is, she's a writer..." "Yeah, and so are you." "Let me finish. I always loved her work." "Did you tell her?" "Of course. We were friends. I always praise my friends."

An Old Toy Koala

Childhood confidant....

As I unpack some boxes, I come across an old teddy. Actually it is a koala, well worn and missing an eye. I can remember how it was  when I first got it brand new. It was soft fluffy and grey, carrying a small boomerang. Staring at this toy, I can remember how I loved it and took it with me everywhere  as it was my childhood confidant. As I hold my toy  it reminds me of a...Read On

Kaitei Niou 2-3

Chapter 2 Kasei just went to the study down the hall and picked up a book on oceanography to research. He pulled out the mirror and looked through the book for references about merfolk. He’d been looking for a while and found nothing that seemed plausible. Giving up after a few hours, he looked into the mirror. Like mist clearing, the mirror showed a young man with sleek features,...Read On

The Warrior

It's the worst feeling...

It's the worst feeling in the world, to have to sit idly by while someone you admire, care about, and respect goes through hell. Constant pain, you can't take for yourself. Heartbreak, you can't sew together. Loss, you can't fill. Mental torment, you can't stop. Constant emotional battering, they feel they deserve. Yet to the bottom of your soul you know they are the least...Read On

Living With Me

This poem only available on Stories Space. If you are reading it elsewhere, it has been stolen. Sing silence a song of a void in the night Where the stars sink in oil And vain they scream out As the phantasms suck all their Bright shine away And the glow of the moon Spins away to the deep of the Aching abyss That is this tortured Soul. Cut my wrists, Slit my throat, Spill my blood on the...Read On

The Claiming of Man: A Fable

The beasts meet to determine what man is.

 When mankind was young, the beasts of the sky, of the land and of the deep blue sea took no notice of him. He was just another animal, perhaps a bit uglier than most and a bit crazier, but nothing unusual. But then, a most remarkable thing happened. In a few thousand years, a mere blink of an eye so far as most species are concerned, man began to build cities, to farm, to write, to speak,...Read On

Nearly There Nicely 4

Ch4 of the story.

While Will continued setting up, a little boy dressed in a nice khaki colored pair of shorts and a white blouse with a blue big ribbon tied around the collar, came over and grabbed onto Will's shirt-tail. Will looked down and smiled at him. The little boy had sky blue eyes and light blond hair with pink tips, hiding one of his eyes. “Hi, Alexander. Have you finished getting cleaned up for...Read On

A Mother's Tongue

Like a mother's love, a mother's words are power, strength and hope.

"We won't let them call it a break down this time,"  She says,  Wiping imagined stray hairs from my brow.  I want to laugh.  I want to cry.  I want to scream.  Medication is bliss.  I wonder their names.  I cannot control my lips,  Let alone form words.  So, mother you have won. What am I without my words?  My life's time consists of responses,  Under breath and at the top of...Read On

The Moment He Saved Me Again- Chapter 4

Once Mason helped me up and we were rushed outside with the rest of the school, the doctors outside who were checking everyone that exited the building...Read On

Introvert

See-- Here’s what you don’t know. Every word or phrase, essay or poem, story or musing that I write is a stab with a double-edged sword to defeat an indelible recording of the recurring command I received while growing up. The message was a simple ‘shut-up’. They say I’m quiet, and that I don’t have much to say. Well, let me tell you about the Diary of a Potential Chatterbox:...Read On

A young man who gave up swimming has met a merman.

~Ten Years Ago~ A young boy and his family were taking a break at the beach during their summer holiday. Even though it was the morning, the sun made the sand very hot, so its grit would burn your feet. The kind mother, with her long brown hair, was watching the two little girls as they played in the shallows. Farther off at the rocks was the tall father, his black hair wet...Read On

The Moment He Saved Me Again- Chapter 3

It's like every muscle in my body tensed up and I stopped breathing right when the lights came on. I couldn't talk. My throat felt like someone had punched it. I squeeze my eyes shut but Mason's hand on mine made me open them again. His blue eyes had a mixture of fear and something else I couldn't quite describe. Footsteps. I hear footsteps. I look at him and shake my head. I shake...Read On

forgiven

forgive

On my way to you, I think of all the things I should be doing today. Forgive me, you are never a bother. I walk in and see you so still. I climb in beside you and hold your hand. When you finally wake up and smile, we hug so tight. Time stand still. We each make the sounds we so often make. I can not let go to talk with my hands. What do I say or do that I didn't before? No words came, just...Read On

A Prophecy of Coconuts

Don’t you want to discover the mystery of the coconut?

Prophecies. What a ridiculous concept. I didn’t believe in them. Whenever they came up in stories I rolled my eyes and put the book aside. If you have a prophecy at the beginning of a story it always comes true. So what suspension is left to keep you reading? Of course, one never knows unless one finishes the story. Though oftentimes it’s for naught, ever so often you do stumble across...Read On

Will I Ever

Him again

Will I ever feel your arms around me again? Feel your lips on mine. Stare into your beautiful blue eyes and laugh at your silly jokes. I miss the way you held me. So close I couldn't breath. The way your eyes smile when you are happy. Will I ever feel you touch my skin in such a way that you make me melt again?: Just to sit next to you and cuddle close would be a dream...Read On

Rebel world

A world I use to live in

I was turning ten, Not even a celebration, Sitting quiet in my room, Stayed silent for a while. An hour before midnight, Street lights are on, Shadows moving through the street, Downtown at the parties. Sound of loud music, Strong smell of weed in the air, Bitter taste of liquor everywhere. Sneaky nights, Rebel world, Lasted almost 6 1/2 years. But I am here. And I am...Read On

The End of a Chapter

Your kindness will never be forgotten...

Sitting outside on the veranda looking out at the mountains on the horizon. As the smell of a roasting barbecue chicken fills the air. Recalling our last conversation,  the hurtful cruel words,  which left many unanswered questions as to why, when you walked out the door. Now as the tears run down my cheek  the severity of this finally sinks in. A cherished friendship of many years is...Read On
