The earth below The earth above Don’t know where I’m going Or which way is up Do you ever feel lost? Like a ship on the sea No land in sight No reprieve  I’m hungry I’m thirsty Nothing satisfies I live each day not feeling alive How can it be this way A hollow feeling every day I know I […]

A Burdensome Beast

“If you try to escape this purse one more time, I will…I will…” What will I do? What do you do to a mythical beast that is three times your size? She couldn’t just show up at a shelter. Hey, have you heard of kitsunes? Well, there’s one in this purse you can totally have. She laughed. Then she sighed. […]

The Jar

My family and I had taken a trip to a state we had never been to before. We did plenty of tourist activities, ate at well-known restaurants, and did a ghost tour.

The Wing Thief – Chapter 2

A Fairy’s Tale

There once lived a little fairy named Alyssum. Alyssum was the tiniest of all the fairies in Elfhame. And as you may know, fairies were already quite small. When asked, Alyssum would tell you that she was 6 inches tall, even though she didn’t quite reach that height. She liked to round up. Most fairies were 7 or 8 inches […]
