    Your teacher says that you will be an expert in mass graves by the end of her class. She is right, of course, she is right about many things. Mostly she is right about how we will feel. She does not tell you that you are standing on a grave until you are standing on one. You never forget that. After that you are careful. You look for signs: the earth dipping like waves, like bowls. There are bones everywhere,...

"Dinner's ready!" Neryssa smiled to herself as she stirred a final sprinkling of chicken flavor booster into her homemade algae pasta. Their quarters looked especially cheery tonight, with the vibrant post-storm sunset lending a rosy blush to the translucent walls. The table was set with the same old dishes, but everything seemed fancier with the festive flickering of the holiday candle in the centre.  Shale walked in and hung his jacket by the door, slipping a small package out of...

A small box tumbled past him by the harsh gale of the storm in the cold and unforgiving winter; a light in the darkness; a dark shadow watched him from the alley. The box contained some fabrics and threads. With his numb fingers, he stitched, cut and sewed a creation - a doll, and cut a small excerpt from his book to give to a small girl...

First, you will be unmade, and so it was.
We were two broken, incomplete people.
But we were one.
Incapable of loving ourselves.
But thirsty for love.

A hunter sat by a river with his trusty canoe by his side. He had a long day and was trying to get some rest after a bear hurt his arm. He took his left sock off and wrapped it around the wound. He had been trying to hunt deer when the bear suddenly attacked him. He managed to fight it off but the bear still wounded him. He had to deal with this kind of stuff everyday. He had...

Ryan in Arabia

    He was flying. It was amazing, but he knew it would end all too soon. Ryan had made it past the evil king Zughti, stolen the blueprints, gotten out of the impenetrable fortress, and now he was hangliding over the Arabian peninsula. He was losing speed and wind. He was almost to the checkpoint, though. He would meet Aaron at the crossroads, then they would drive to the small, private airport, 40 miles away.

    My family and I were driving to my cousin’s 1st birthday party. My dad had been acting very strange the entire day, especially after he came home from the Kroger near our house. I wondered what had happened to him. He was acting like his soul had been vacuumed out of his body.  His skin was slightly tinted blue, he looked very ill, but no one was paying much attention to that. He had only murmured a couple of sentences...

Serenity exclaimed in disgust as we made our way down the rows of kennels, her high-heeled knee boots click-clacking along the tiled kennel row. The dogs barked and yapped over each other, each vying for our attention. The tiny ones jumped high, almost to our eye-level, their tiny tails whipping back and forth so hard I thought they were going to snap off. There was a huge variety of dogs, ranging from bold chihuahuas to massive Saint Bernards, huge tongues...
