I rode with Noah in front of me, trying not to jostle him that much. Washington didn’t say much after we climbed on our horses, neither did Lafayette. I looked at my friends, trying to still my own heart. Eliza must leave today. Eliza must escape with her family. I couldn’t bear if anything happened to her. Nothing must happen to her. I wanted to turn my horse right then and there and ride off to protect her,...

    To some people these eight words may seem a strange way to describe December, but each one holds a special meaning for me.
​    Delight, this word is pretty simple. I find delight it almost every part of December. I love the feel of December, you can almost see hope in the air.
    Everyone, this is also easy to explain. To me December is a time that...

PROMPT: My December Competition

  Revelations always seem to come to me at the oddest of times, where my heart is quietest; they arrive silent, and they crawl subtle. And before I know it, they hit me with a bite––sharp, stinging, and the startling truth reveals in such a stark manner it must be what makes revelations so shocking.
   My heart still hurts when I think about that day, a year ago: We were sharing a bed and a blanket, the room was cold and...

2017

PROMPT: My December Competition

December ends my 2017 year. And man was it amazing.
I discovered so many things. I met so many new people.

   In January, my mom and my dad had gone on a hunt for some new wedding rings, because a few year school ago we had been robbed, and they stole everything. Even my piggy bank, which had always been empty. Suckers. But my parents quickly realized that they didn't have enough money for rings in the bank, so...

Another Planet

FREE WRITING

I sat on the bench and felt the winds of time toy with my hair.

The wooden structure I sat upon was comfortable but worn. Knots swirled like whirlpools on its surface, splinters growing lushly by their sides. The color of the bench had faded with time and the soft rain that often came to this place. My hand rested on the seat, and I could feel the history of every notch and knoll breathing under the surface.

Just Worried

FREE WRITING

Some nights I cry myself to sleep, not because I'm sad but because I'm worried out of my mind. I worry about everything, usually family, that there's gonna be a freak car crash and someone's gonna die. Other nights I fall asleep really quickly and have a dream. I love having dreams, and reading. They take me to another world, no humans to destroy everything, or to think their helping but are actually making things worse.

A Perfect Christmas

PROMPT: My December Competition

    I wake up on Christmas morning, bubbling with joy. It is only 5am. I am too excited to sit still, but my parents said not to wake them up until 6am. I jump out of bed and dash to the living room. I see presents, one large and one small. My beautiful stocking my grandmother made is hanging above the fireplace, overflowing with goodies. I think I can see a candy cane. I smell cinnamon and nutmeg, remnants...

A Latonic Love

PROMPT: Fernweh

Latonic- la-tone-ick- a platonic love in which you would give your all to someone.

It was a latonic love. She would give her all to her and she would do the same. Neither ever crossing a line so thin, and delicatley loving oneanother in a way no one could describe.

Why Do You Write?

PROMPT: Why I Write

A lanky looking boy is standing in front of me, his dusty brownish blondish hair swooped to the side as always. He towers over my short height and looks as though he plays every sport on the roster. I stand beneath him, my purple hair sticking out and making me look funny, looking as though I don't know the definition of 'sport'.
He raises an eyebrow "well?" he asks after a moment "sorry-what?" I say, he must've said something while...
