Hi there! Just a teen who wants to write more for her last few years of high school :)
and who also can't usually write super-extended pieces of writing because of writer's block so short stories will be all I ever write :P

The Stars Above

FREE WRITING

Even the stars held their breath as she balanced on the edge of the high-reaching platform.

Teetering, dancing swirls of violet and azure and magenta light stood to attention as the crowd below hushed in a dazzling expectancy. Through the careful openings of the big top, the glittering diamonds hung in the night sky, silently encouraging her as she took a deep breath, the room whirling and burning around her as her caged heart beat ferociously against her chest.

Amidst the Masquerade

FREE WRITING

She shouldn’t be here - a lower-class delinquent wrapped in a scarlet dream, born the rarest rose amongst the city of thorns that was her home. But tonight she was someone else, elsewhere. Yet even on a night such as this, she stood out with an icy beauty as she wandered amidst the pastel facade of faces, masks and dreams that glimmered in the dark light.

He shouldn’t be here - a middle-class commoner wearing a white fantasy, born the...

Cloudier Days

FREE WRITING

It began as a white wisp among a blanket of blue. Back then, I never thought much of it.

It followed me wherever I went; it murmured grey whispers that tangled in my hair and slowly stained my skin.

I got used to its voice. I didn’t realise how much bigger it had gotten - a white wisp to a grey, floating shrub. I didn’t have time for it though - I had other more important things to worry about.

Only Child

FREE WRITING

It never mattered how hard I tried. Never mattered how I would struggle to push myself over my limits, only to find myself nowhere near the bar. 

I was never enough for them.

Mum wanted an artist. But the acrylic tears leaking from the canvases I painted for her were never acceptable.

Dad wanted an athlete. But I’d grind myself to the bone trying to fit the perfects moulds of the perfect people on TV and still be too slow,...

The Forest’s Green Eyes

FREE WRITING

“Tyler!! Shut up!”

Rosy’s little red ball narrowly missed the snobby-nosed chubby-faced boy, who was whistling a merry little out-of-tune tune, and bounced off beneath the shrubbery. Penelope, the red-faced thrower of said ball, stuck out her pouting pink lips, exasperated after having told Tyler, what felt to her to be the millionth time, to be quiet and to stop annoying her. She, of course, had always been the irritable one, Tyler, the irritating one, and the third...
