A crinkled-skinned man looked around with glistening dark eyes, and drool slowly dripped from his lips. “Yes-yes all according to plan!” His face stretched into a too-long smile, cracks in his lips opening further a path for blood.  The sky was dark above, a dense fog stretching past all sight. Contorting shadows littered every inch of the ground, their moans […]

Magic of Music

When Lyna plays for her fans the music comes to life. You can see it in their faces, as her voice flows through the audience, their eyes alight with awe as if they were shining stars, their hair practically floating, and a soft golden aura surrounding them in the warmth of her music.  Lyna loved playing music and adored her […]

The House Across The Street

My family and I moved into a new home about a month ago. It’s a nice neighborhood, quiet in a small town. My room is the only upstairs room; the window faces the street and it’s directly across from a house that looks similar to ours. The same sized window of our neighbors across the street faces mine.  “Many houses […]

The Culling – Part 2

This is the conclusion to Clever’s short story, The Culling. If you haven’t read Part 1, you can find it here. … I have my theory, but I know the other villagers will need more before they agree to fight back against the monsters. I need more information to come up with a sound plan. The creatures caught me off […]

The Culling

“I’ve been marked!”  I jolt awake at the sound of the cry. My sleep-addled brain trying to decipher if this was real. “I’ve been marked!” the voice shouts, from farther away this time as he makes his way through the village. No, no, no, no. This can’t be happening.  I pull on clothes and rush from my room. My little […]

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 […]
