Flying

The wind played with her hair as she leaned back and closed her eyes, determined to remember this moment forever. She could feel the smile creeping across her face. She flung her arms out like wings on each side of her. The euphoria she was feeling was like nothing she’d ever felt before. Opening her…

Dropped In

The sound of a stream caught Sam’s attention as he slowly awoke from his deep sleep, he reached around to find his snooze button. His hand was met with a finger full of damp dirt. He popped up on his elbows and looked around. He was not in his bedroom. He wasn’t even sure he…

Little One

Clara wanted the same thing any other 8 year old would want. She wanted her own kingdom. She knew it was her right. She knew it was her inheritance. She knew one day it would be hers. As she sat in her carriage admiring the new blooms on the apple trees, she couldn’t help but…

Hacked

The only light in the room was coming off of a computer screen in the back of the lab. There were two girls lost in its contents. The only noise for a long time was the clicking of keys and the mouse. “This is taking forever.” The younger of the two girls standing behind the…

Royalty

As the grand doors swung heavily to allow the late arrival to enter, it revealed a beauty that had not been seen in the kingdom before. The girl that entered looked eerily familiar to the crowd assembled, but she was like no one they had ever seen before. The dress she wore shimmered as she glided…

Awkward

“Sorry I’m late. There was a train.” Sasha tugged on her sleeve until the light blue jacket came loose. “Well you aren’t missing anything yet. Luke beat you here.” Steve took her coat while she started pulling off her scarf. “Oh.” Sasha paused for a second absorbing this new information. “How’d that happen? I didn’t…

Hideaway

The world is a large and dangerous place. Anyone who tells you otherwise is lying. I could feel the cold of the concrete force its way through my blanket. I leaned against the wall behind me as I sat contemplating my next move. The bells in the distance reminding me that my fairy tale was…

Panoramic

The light surrounding her was brilliant. She raised one hand to covered her eyes to keep herself from being blinded while keeping a firm grip with her other hand to anything solid so she wouldn’t lose her balance. The gentle rocking was nice at first, but soon became loathsome. Karra always dreamed of a life at…

Skydive

Pira was shaking and unable to move as she stayed frozen on her hands and knees. “Come on Pira. Calm down.” Jem sighed as she pushed a stray hair out of her face.”I saved your life.” “You pushed me off of a building!” Pira craned her neck to look Jem in the eyes. “How is…

Droplets

She tilted her head up towards the clouds and closed her eyes feeling the small damp droplets hit her face. She took in the moist air and could smell the earth around her. It smelt like her childhood. Like times long gone. Standing on the patch of green, she felt safe and secure. Feelings of…

Earth

The forest was humming with life. Birds swooped down overhead picking off their unsuspecting breakfast from mid air. The breeze sang as it strolled through the leaves and branches of the trees. The moss on the bark of the trees was a happy green. The morning sun broke through the canopy above in golden rays…

The Wall

Rumors about a hidden city had been spreading for centuries. A secret Utopia, if you will; but rumors were all they ever were. No one actually believed that such a city existed. It was just a message of hope passed down from one generation to the next. Hope of a better future. Of better times…
