PROMPT: Friendship Narrative

“So why did I have to punch that guy?”
“Not... The.. Time!” I panted to Mina. “Keep... Running!”
Minas spindley but powerful legs pulled her forward, whilst I lagged behind.
Not helpful, since they were after me.
 
Overnight, I had become the most valuable person in the world. Even my own family was after my head. I don’t think Mina had heard the news yet, though. Even a best friend would dissolve to a hunter when it came to...

Friendship is what keeps us connected

PROMPT: Friendship Narrative

    This story is about my best friend Nathan Haugen, and how we met.
It starts off in around 1st grade. We were sitting next to each other in our classroom and we started talking about after school things.
I asked him, “Hey Nathan, do you like to play video games?”
He said to me, “Yeah, I play them all the time.” For a bit I wondered, “maybe he can come over and we can play games together.” So then...

Battle Cry

PROMPT: 0-9

One little feeling grew into some hope, which shined brightly in the boy's two beautiful brown eyes.
Were it continued to grow into three quiet words, those quiet words grew louder and louder until it was a battle cry.
The battle cry that was meant for four people: his mind, his body, his soul, and his heart.
That battle cry changed more and more as the years went by until one day as he cupped the hands of the girl...

The Price of Friendship

PROMPT: Friendship Narrative

You don’t know what it’s like. I’ve been compared to you and your skills all my life.

“You should be more like her,” they say.
“Your grade was good, but hers was great.”
“If you were more like her we’d be prouder,” they mean. I know that, but I wish it wasn't so.

I’m stuck, I can’t seem to get out of your shadow. A constant show I'm supposed to fill. A silhouette that I'm supposed to fit right into....

The Faces of Friendship

PROMPT: Friendship Narrative

All in all, defining Friendship isn't really that hard for some, especially for those who have friends, obviously. However, some people out there don't have friends, for example...the shy kids, the silent walker, the big bully, the study nerd, and so on. These children, or even adults, have no experience whatsoever in Friendship. Thus, I pity them. Friendship is defined as "A relationship of mutual affection between two or more people." which apparently, signifies a close; sometimes inseparable bond between beings....

When Kings Fall

PROMPT: Friendship Narrative


            In the year 2075, 37 years after the human races’ first contact with extra terrestrial life, the Human race has been enslaved, the planet Earth turned into a resource site, and a mining planet. Present day United States, now known as “Region 16” used for its agricultural advantages, to grow crops and produce for the race that has enslaved us. Their names are long and hard for humans to pronounce, so we just deemed them as “Titans”, Earth’s new...

Far From Home

PROMPT: Setting as Mood

The autumn winds lazily tickled the leaves of the tree I sat in trying to escape the world which was crumbling down around me. A calming scent washed over me, pine needles and rain, heather gray clouds rolled across the vast sky above me with the threat of rain. I stayed up in the fragrant pine for hours staring out over the sublime scenery in the distance. The sharply peaked and snow capped mountains almost as though I had come...
