Chapter 1: Today
I looked at the clock near the wall impatiently. The book in my hand felt pretty irrelevant; I’d read the same page over and over since I’ve sat down. I slam the book shut and began to pace. Where is ...
My Fighter
I didn't want to, but I had to do it. I got a roommate. I love living alone and the idea of my apartment being my hideout from the whole world. But because I want to work part-time so I can focus on s...

Why?
I gazed up at the twilight sky above, and the winds began to wisp the leaves up towards the sky from under my feet. The branches from the trees around me began to whistle and started to crumble to the...

Coffee
It was strange to sit up in a bed, the smell the coffee coming from the kitchen, and I realize I wasn’t the first person up. I liked the idea of a hot cup of coffee waiting for me downstairs, but for ...

Unbidden Truth
"What?" The words didn't seem to sink in, they seemed to pass over her and never really settle. She refused to believe it, maybe that was why. Jennifer flashed a smile, mischief and gloating glinting ...
Rain Skies and Blue Bows (Ch. 4)
"Kiss me and then run away. I'll be right behind you," Jeon sang as he strummed away on Wild Flower. It was my turn to come up with lyrics. "When you catch me, baby, fly away. Spread your wings, take ...

Grief
Cheap whiskey splashed into a slightly less than sparkling tumbler. The glass met the table with uncertainty and a wobble. Then it came back up again to meet the slurring lips of a woman whose eyes we...

Pen and Scott
Her name is Pen. She's a quiet one, Pen. Doesn't like confrontation—with any gender. She's like one of those girls in the movies who have faded knee-length skirts, white socks, black loafers and a pin...
Lost Stars in Acoustic Skies (Ch. 3)
"You always change keys at that part!" Jeon laughed, frustrated at my consistent failure to stay on key. He clutched his acoustic tightly as we sat knee to knee on the park bench. He would never call ...
A Month
Her soul ached. Everything reminded her of him. It had been a month and day since he’d ended things, and only a couple days since she’d last talked to him. It hit her hard the day before. One month. I...
