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.

Message from Writer

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

    “So,” Kaila leans forward, her chin in her hands and looking up at me like I have some sort of secret to spill. A smile quirks her lips.
    I shift slightly, feeling an odd, sharp piece of the chair bite into my back. “Right,” I exhale with a flash of a smile, trying to quell the sick feeling building up in my stomach. 
    Kaila laughs at that, shaking her head at me. “You look so nervous. Breathe,...

Graveyard & Flowers

PROMPT: Flash Fiction Competition 2020

    By the time I reach the graveyard, the roses are drooping and the baby’s breaths have all but shriveled and given up the ghost. 
    The stone I’m looking for isn’t like the others. It’s not adorned with flags, or intricate designs or special symbols. 
    The stone I’m looking for is plain. Plain and brand new. 
    It’s not hard to find. 
    Heart fluttering in my chest, I step up to the gravestone. I crouch down. Dead leaves...

PROMPT: Novel Writing Competition 2019

    Summer has a distinct smell.
    It’s the track and field smell—only stronger. That was part of the reason why I loved summer so much. 
    Summer smelt like warm grass and black-top tracks baking in the sun. It smelled faintly like chlorine and fried food; like overcooked flowers and sunscreen and new shoes. 
    The smell of summer was all around us as we pounded down the track. The smell of sweat lingered faintly in the air as well,...

“I’m gonna need the lowdown.”
I stared down at my ice cream cone and shrugged. 
“Hey?” Aaron waited until I dragged my gaze up to his to continue. “It’s okay, TJ. You know that, right?” 
“What?” I asked, only half-interested. 
Aaron raised his eyebrows. “Sass-o-meter: level red,” 
I rolled my eyes and deadpanned. 
Aaron’s eyes were smiling. “Alert! Alert! May implode from  toxic levels of sass--” 
“People are staring,” I hissed, glancing sideways at the other people around us.

It was a big deal. 
Honestly, I thought I’d feel anything. Anything but numb--that is. 
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...
