I'm currently working on 2, too-long stories.
Love: cats, piano, badminton, history, swimming, chess, and (for some reason) the ocean.

Reach out if you want a review :D

Message from Writer

Joy is something you can seek for and get, when it comes, embrace it. ~Me

Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing at all. ~Hellen Keller

Daydreaming may not be too bad if it's controlled :)

Isn't the ocean gorgeously elegant and beautiful?

And once again, if you want a review, feel free to tell me!

She will Suffer a Death that Is Wrongly, Her's

June 30, 2022

FREE WRITING

Her gentle eyes dart far out, wide, 
down to the sunset, and down to the muddy quarry, 
on the edge, she stands, waiting to be drowned, 
glancing only to her right side, at the horizon,
her left arm is sticky meat, and stands raw scars, 
her mouth murmurs a ginger prayer
while the priest, besides, reads loudly from a leather bible
to cast her soul to rest as the devil's follower. 
Her tightly bound wrists is stopping the flow of her blood,
it does not matter, though, 
she lets her wind flow her hair away, 
washing the pain from her tortured body,
into the next field of peaceful plain, 
she smiles hopelessly at the orange, and yellow light, 
before shrugging. 
A witch, she will be known for on Earth, 
but what matters is that God will know she is not, 
He will know she was His follower, 
not the devil's—never had been the devil's. 

Her head is shoved down into the brown water, 
and only bubbles arise back into the world. 
I hope this depicts, the Salem trials—it is an unfair, superstitious event that killed many females.

    re: Haha yeah :)
    That makes sense! That's definitely how I felt in Mexico (and most places we travel, honestly)

    re: Yes, that's why :)
    Yeah, California is definitely very different from Japan. I can imagine it's quite stressful and also pretty interesting.
    I'm actually going to two camps, a horseback camping trip and farm camp. So I'll be gone for three weeks :)

    re: hmm, not sure. i'm probably going to aim for around 500-700 words? but i think they'll be okay with anything as long as it answers the prompt

    re: thank you! i don't think i'll be publishing the whole story on here, mostly because it still needs a lot of editing work. i also thought the prompt seemed really cool! i'm going to start working on it today :)
