Hi! I'm a human that can iMaGiNe things... sometimes. I want to have fun with my writing and I want to explore because there has to be more to the world than this little corner, right?

"Luck"

PROMPT: One-Liner

There's no such thing as luck, there's only the things that you do and the things you don't do.

PROMPT: Flash Fiction Competition 2019

Two shots, liquid draining away.

Drip, drip. A gun was cocked
Crack, crack. The puking stopped.
Gurgle, gurgle. A shaky gasp...
With my unmoving boyfriend and parents around us, my brother’s bullet went through me.
Another gunshot. Four bodies. More sounds.
Drip, drip. A gun was moved.
Crunch, crunch. Sirens echoed.
Giggle, giggle. My job was done.
I wasn’t blessed, as heaven would say.
Heaven would say I’m damned.
Me?
I’d say...

Who Would've Known?

PROMPT: Returning

I looked around, choking on the tears that threatened to run away. I couldn't tell if they were sad or happy, and if I cried then the people around me wouldn't understand either. They bustled around, starving. They were brokers, friends, backstabbers, liars, and kids. I think that, ultimately, they were the magic of the place. But this was the hall where blood -myblood- stained my socks. This was the locker I had in the seventh grade, the one...

Break and Enter

PROMPT: Flash Fiction Competition 2017

Shimmering emerald grasses with pearls strewn about their surface. The sun a pure white diamond in the sky, a sheet of azure sapphire, only broken by white-gold clouds. Flowers of ruby and other jewels. I go past it. I had a test to finish. Focus. I found the letters. The 6 blocks were filled with B-E-A-U-T-Y. But they fell. Sirens erupted. I sighed. Why, Einstein?
