Whoosh, Whoosh

Whoosh, whoosh...whoosh, whoosh...whoosh, whoosh. Quiet. So very still, all around me. Nothing stirring. Dark. So dense, the atmosphere. Hard to breathe. Nothing to see. Can't see. Can't hear anything. Whoosh, whoosh...whoosh, whoosh... Blood, rushing through my veins. In my head. In my ears. Hearing it. Stirring. Not stirring. No feeling. None. Arms and legs dead. Dead weight. ...Read On

Packing

It's that time again

“Have we got everything?” “Yes.” “Are you sure?” I roll my eyes. I’m the Queen of packing. Of course we’ve got everything. Huffing, I recite the list - “Clothes, swimming kits, first-aid kit, towels, games, phone chargers, food, toilet roll, wellingtons, waterproofs and wine. Oh, and jumpers. Lots of jumpers.” “Do we need them in August?” “We’re staying in a caravan...Read On

King Abaron: Chapter 2 Abaron and Bethany returned to the council room where all were quiet and waited for them. "Has anyone gotten any fresh ideas?" Abaron asked as he took his seat. "No sire, I'm afraid we were more concerned with the surprising action of your seventh son and what we should do about it?" Charles, the head war adviser, asked. "We shall take no action as where he is going...Read On

Chapter 8 PENBIRTH MARKET The jewellery shop was where Mr Valery had said it was, although if Lowenna hadn't been told it was a jewellery shop she would never have guessed by the outside sign or the window display.

Dave's Place Chapter 8 - Victor

I could tell Susan was tiring of the serious conversation and I wasn't the only one. Andy caught my eye, ordered another Guiness, and said, "Tell her about Victor." I got a big grin on my face and said, "That is the best idea I've heard all evening." Susan smiled anticipating the story. I pulled Andy his beer and began. "Victor is a big, big Puerto Rican guy with more charisma than...Read On

Dancing Into Old Age

She gave me a spontaneous hug. Then went on pointe. We were warming up for rehearsal for our all-dance show. I was surrounded by girls. And a few young ladies. She was a young lady. She'd trained enough to be in pointe shoes. That took time and training and dedication. Silly child. I was still taller, when I went up on tiptoes in jazz shoes. I can't go on pointe. Most men don't,...Read On

Glue

Christmas ornaments always come with memories attached to them.

The Christmas tree was up by the first weekend in December and fully decorated by Sunday night, just before prime-time TV, but all feelings of accomplishment faded when Renfield the cat jumped headlong from the entertainment center onto the top of the tree and rode it down like Slim Pickens riding the A-bomb in Dr. Strangelove, a movie Bob loved enough to have viewed multiple times (Karen...Read On

LousyNick's Guide To Dancing Badly - Or Your Money Back

Get up offa that thing...and dance till you feel better. Alright, stop - hammertime!

Dancing. The very word fills many of us with terror, as we contemplate embarrassing ourselves in front of friends, acquaintances, enemies and total strangers by flailing around like drunken monkeys on Ritalin (although, to be fair, even drunken monkeys can be pretty agile, not to mention adorable - the same can't always be said of us tail-less primates). Sadly, no matter how much we may...Read On

Ms. Barbie Doll

Please note this is just a story nothing more.

A woman at the end of the bar finished putting on her lipstick and slowly looked around the room for a man. Her eyes landed on a man in a nice black suit and red tie. His eyes glanced in her direction and a warm smile slowly went across his face.She took out her mirror, fixed herself for the last time and walked his way seductively. "Hey there hot stuff, my name is Maggie.What is yours?"...Read On

Peach

I was almost there.After defying gravity, monsters, and even Death, only a few more steps remain in what has seemed like an endless search. A perpetual cycle blind to Time. I get closer. My heart is thunder booming in hollow tunnels, every moment constricted. You've been every dream and nightmare. Beautiful and loving. Frighteningly cold and distant. Almost a myth, even though I've held...Read On

A God's Narration

I'm a god, I'm nuts, y'all're crazy!

Behind the door is another door and behind that door is a demon, but you already knew that. Behind the demon, there’s nothing. The demon is you, didn’t you know? You should do. Something tells me you’re not as self-aware as you think you are. Me? Oh, I don’t need to be self-aware, especially when I’m aware of you. That’s my curse, you see. Also my gift, if you want to look at it that...Read On

D.T - Volga the Apprentice: Chapter 1

Amber 35

Spring break finally ended and Ally returned to college.

It was similar to the same routine she used and gave her great results. With the end of the break Bruce now devoted the bulk of his free time between work and studying for his finals, so he...Read On

Before and After

Within the first week after I took delivery of my new car, I stepped in gum. It got on the carpet. Not on the mat, but on the carpet just beneath the door. I was upset. I got most of it off, but there was still a mark on the light tan carpet. It was a pretty car: diamond white, with a light tan interior. My favorite is white, with a light grey interior, but the last two cars I ended up...Read On

Don't Call Me Sweetheart

Don’t Call Me Sweetheart Don’t you ever use that word in my presence or in reference to me, right? That’s what he always called me, right before he started in on me with his fists and his feet: “Where’s my fucking dinner, sweetheart?” “Where the fuck have you been, sweetheart?” “Sweetheart, I’ve told you before, haven’t I?” Oh, yeah, he used that endearment all...Read On

Chance

A quick snap followed by “here you're first.” An object of power in his hand. Raise. CLICK! He sat the object whirling in the center of the table. At her direction. Halt. Raise. CLICK! Back in the center and I gave it a spin. Halt. Raise. CLICK! Both of us were sweating buckets and again it whirled round and round. Halt. Raise. CLICK! It warbled off balance like a merry-go-round. Halt....Read On

Ancestor Chapter 5: Selection

Xaine stood in the large room, tired from his second day of trials. It was uncommon for someone to have to go through multiple days of trials. The trials would last multiple days, but different candidates were usually tested each day. Xaine had almost lost hope as the only reason for someone to be tried in more areas was if they were not suited for the one they had already been tried in. Yet...Read On

Anniversary Reflections

How times have changed

I recently ‘celebrated’ the 45th anniversary of my first day at work. After completing my journalism studies at the local college, I arrived at the Head Office of my employer, a major UK regional newspaper and magazine publisher, that July day in 1970, armed with a typing speed of eighty words per minute and a certificate to say that I could write Pitman’s shorthand at 100 words per minute! ...Read On

When the time finally came for him to get that which he desired the most, he would not have it snatched by that nasty thing called the plague. The moment he saw the signs, he wasted no time fetching his 7-month pregnant wife to the village shaman, a man well known for his...Read On

Chasing Ossie

Ossie makes his bid for freedom

‘There it is!’ ‘Where? I can’t see it.’ ‘Over there, behind that bush.’ ‘There’s nothing there I tell you. Proper wild goose chase this is!’ ‘Well . . . to be strictly accurate . . . ’ ‘OK, a wild flipping OSTRICH chase then!’ Neville was totally peed off. His new mac that he’d been given for Christmas by his wife was totally trashed. The light fawn Gannex was covered in green slime, from...Read On

Three figures she had never seen before stood against...Read On

Planet Eos

This is it. After the years of training, it’s all going pay off. At least that’s what they tell me. “Do you think you’re ready?” I ask Stephanie in a hushed voice, trying not to break the silence. Everyone else is waiting in nervous anticipation. “I hope so,” she replies, turning around, “If not, well, there isn’t much I can do about that now.” Chuckling, I say “You’re right, I...Read On

Dave's Place Chapter 7 - Kay

I texted Susan a few times, but I didn't want to scare her away so I kept it to pleasantries. She hadn't offered much of herself in the weeks she had been coming in, and I knew pushing would be a bad idea. Still, it made me smile every time I got a reply. I got really excited the next time she came through the big front door late one evening. It was a weeknight, and only a few customers...Read On
