Whispers

FREE WRITING

Whispers down the hall.
Talk to me. 
Silver tongue hissing,
Don't leave me. 
I crave your sweet, sticky words. They are easy to believe. Simple and slow. They skip around the answers I need in the most beautiful ways, twisting past the tendrils of fear I need to feel something. Anything. 
Wrap me around you.
Never touch.
Want me forever,
Never love.
Hold me close but at arms length. We need not touch if we have secrets. Smile with empty...

The streets were quiet and dark, every building was a different shade of grey, all the windows lit by varying hues of yellow from lamps. Some people occasionally crossed the rooms, casting oddly shaped shadows on the empty streets. Adrian walked with Evelyn in silence. He lead her through the city, down alleyways where he moved slightly closer to her, just in case someone was around the corner, and through the busier streets where they would pass a few people...

The television was up so loud that Evelyn didn't notice when Adrian turned up behind her. She had sat down on the couch after the lesson with Adrian. She found that Colm was much more relatable than Ilaria, and very quickly they both found out they liked the Simpsons. They started talking about which seasons were the best and how the new ones are trying too hard. Colm brought his box set of every episode out, and they started...

The warm scent of a small candle Ilaria had lit drifted down the hallway, following Adrian as he was lead towards Ilaria's room, her thin frame silhouetted in the dim evening light. She nudged the door open with a bony shoulder, then crossed the room, passing dusty guitars hanging from the dark walls, the thin, light rug and her writing desk where posters that had hung on the walls when Adrian last was in the room were rolled up, covering...

Twenty-one. That's the number I hate. The number of people who were meant to live. The ones that died while pleading for my mercy. While hoping I would let them leave. Not one of them got away.
They each got a bullet between their eyes and a widowed wife. Some had children. They all grew up knowing that I had made their mother miserable. I had been the one that made them all sit up during the night waiting for...

Brow creased and head bowed, Evelyn lent over the paper Adrian had given her, as he watched her from the opposite side of the table. Evelyn tapped her pen against the hard wood of the table, moving her foot in time with it. Adrian marveled at how she stayed focused, something her had never been able to do for more than ten minutes. Half an hour in to Evelyn's training, Adrian pulled out his phone and started playing flappy bird...

Evelyn woke to the sound of clattering in the kitchen. As she struggled to find the will to sit up, she heard Colm's deep voice boom through the house. The walls of what used to be Adrian's room were a pale cream color, but the room was large, and the brown carpet was soft. There was a small window on the wall farthest from the door, and above the head of the bed was a sketch of a woman with...

"When I left I went to live in the human world I cut all ties to elves. I kept only my communicator and I used that a couple of days ago. I had been living in New York for about a year, then one day I was visiting one of my human friends and I bumped Evelyn on the staircase in her apartment building. I-"
Evelyn interrupted. "What did you do to me that day? I've held off on asking...

Adrian turned they key in his apartment's lock with a satisfying click. He turned the handle, the cold metal of the door knob biting into his skin. He let the tension in his muscles leave him and he tried to walk in a normal way. How does he usually walk? He struggled to make his arms swing in a natural movement. Out of the corner of his eye he saw Evelyn staring at him with her head cocked and brow...

After a short bus trip out of New York, they travelled out the bus and down an alleyway, where there was a cellar door that lead to a small elevator. Evelyn stared in wonder, and could not find a reason why no-one had found it. Adrian pushed himself up against the wall of the elevator which was less than two feet wide. Evelyn squeezed in next to him and they were squashed in together. She felt his heartbeat through his...
