Strange Young Us

A typical conversation between me and a friend.

"You got what for my mother?" Nick nodded. He turned to his window. I pulled softly at a clump of his brown hair. "Why?" He turned back and sighed with a small grin.

Unwanted Gift

My holiday drabble.

The Christmas present ticked me off! After twenty years of friendship, he knew how I felt about presents and Christmas.

It’s happening so fast and your head’s in a spin, And you thought you’d never feel this way again, Hold my hand now and I’ll fall for you, A feeling from the start as...Read On

Her ears rang with his constant shouting. Drained and exhausted. Her body betraying all natural instinct. She doesn’t know how much longer she can hold on. His voice sent shudders throughout her.

Not the way to treat a loyal friend.

Spinning Round and Round

Won't somebody make me feel alive and shatter me~ Lindsey Stirling

It was dark now. I was but a forgotten memory, stuck playing a lullaby and spinning around in circles. I gazed at the moon and the stars, the cracks in the shattered mirror distorted the image and made it seem less real. Once I stood tall and proud on the shelf. The music chimed brightly and I danced my heart out. The song was as light as my feet, as I delicately spun. My heart soared,...Read On
