Hello everyone! I'm Alliyah. Writing is my passion. I'm a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Days Saints. I also love nature, reading, making people laugh, playing sports, photography and art.

Writing is my passion--fiction is my specialty. And my goal is to improve on both.
All my writing is clean--that means no swearing, etc.
Also, if you are interested, I post on Wattpad (@alliyahwriting) and Prose (Alliyah). If you like what you see here--feel free to check those out too!
Thanks for all the support and reviews! -Alliyah

But sitting there, in a doctor’s office that smelled like too-strong sanitizer and Old Spice, I felt numb. 
Numb and alone and empty. 
I don’t know about you, but in my opinion, empty is the worst thing to feel. Empty means there is nothing inside, nothing good, nothing bad. Nothing at all. 
Empty means there is no one standing beside you. It means that there...

“It’s not a big deal, Mama!” I smiled at her in an attempt to soften the anxious crease between Christina Jackson’s eyes. I put my hands on either of her shoulders, close to the base of her neck and used my thumbs to massage the muscles there. 
“It’s gonna be fine!” I stood on my tiptoes and leaned my head over so that I could see her face from where I stood behind her. 
Mama rolled her eyes, trying to...

Smoke

PROMPT: Earth Day Writing Competition 2019

Summer last year wasn't spent outside. 
The smoke was outside. 
My little sister and I stayed inside, pressing our noses against the glass of windows and imagining the sky was blue. We thought that maybe, if we wished hard enough, the outdoor activities we once had enjoyed could be possible again.
