My name is Hailey, and I'm messy in love with everyone.

Message from Writer

I'm glad that we can all be here together in one place in the universe. There is something tragically beautiful about the lot of us, and something cosmic about the gathering of our combined minds. I hope I write something that makes you question yourself, and hope that I may glean the same understanding from you. Godspeed.

     They hid under desks and windowsills. Someone turned the lights off. It was natural, a routine they'd done hundreds of times, imagining a moment just like this. They had all come to expect that they would one day be next.

Hold Me Like A Bird

PROMPT: Year by Year

Year One: I am standing with my mother by the water in Washington. I laugh as a duck takes off. 
Year Two: I kick my sister off the bed when my mother turns her back. Her nose bleeds and I go to bed early. 
Year Three: We lay in the bed. My father throws a green ball towards the ceiling of our trailer and makes promises I am still young enough to believe in.
