The Pizza Boy

We have a special post this week from The Guest. “Another pizza delivery boy has gone missing last night. Jonathan Harting’s car was found abandoned in a ditch off Carter avenue around 2 a.m. after he departed from his work to deliver to a nearby neighborhood. When he didn’t return for over an hour and wouldn’t answer his boss’ call, […]

Blood Moon

Trees whizzed past in a blur. The sodden soil sunk beneath her weight, as dirt chunks flew up with each clawed paw that effortlessly navigated the forest. The moon was high, and its fullness glimmered above through the tree line. All that could be heard was the rhythmic thumping of paws, and the wind whipping.  Her ears twitched, and light […]

The Cradle

After reading the draft of WTF’s latest story, Red Eyes, I called to tell her a tale of my own. This is that story: I awoke in the dead of night with my sister sleeping peacefully beside me. I glanced around my bedroom and listened to the typical stillness of an Ohio night, permeated with the chirping of insects. Unsure […]

Red Eyes

I was maybe seven or eight, we lived on base because my father was in the military, so we had a small house. My two brother’s had their room while I shared a room with my older sister, and one night I had never been more thankful she was there.  I slept with a teddy bear and my sister said […]

This Is Why I Don’t Like Halloween

Ellie stumbled out of her bed, flinging her covers off “Fuck” she mumbled “I slept in late AGAIN” She did this every morning, staying up too late at night, snoozing her alarm about ten times before she actually got out of bed. She quickly pulled on her favorite, but very worn, pair of jeans, and a pulled a hoodie over […]

The Hex Signs

He just gave me a lopsided smile, the kind when someone knows something you don’t, and I decided right then that […]


Have you ever thought that one moment, one action could send you spiraling out of control? Like a fragile mask slipping off and shattering, slipping into insanity, your true form exposed. I’ve had for a long time this feeling bubbling up inside, feeling at times it would burst through to the surface. I always struggled to keep maintained, push it […]

Dark Thoughts

The creek behind Olivia’s house loomed from the tree line, seemingly growing larger as the sound of cicadas grew increasingly louder. With effort Olivia finally wrenched her eyes away, shaking her head as if to clear it. She slammed the blinds down and shakily walked to her bed.  Olivia plopped down onto her bed, pulling her laptop into her lap. […]


Lucy took a long drag of her clove cigarette “I’m disgusting…” she thought to herself as she yanked her hood over her hair. She was looking at her feet as she trudged along the pavement, beat up black boots slapping the wet ground, not noticing the man she was about to run into. “Ooooof… shit sorry” she mumbled as she […]
