Trigger MeBreathing. Intense, sharp, painful breathing. The air burned my lungs and throat as the air escaped. Then it returned over and over again. It was an involentary movement the body was use to, but it was the quickness that it came that threw everything off. In front of me a dark figure stood exuding dark clouds from the pores of its skin. I felt nothing but terrifyingly confusing emotions. I noticed the smile plastered on its face. It was clear at first but the longer I stared everything began to blur. Then there was nothing.Trigger Me4 days ago in Short Stories
"Mitch!" a light shaking woke me.
"Mitch are you alright?" My friend stood above me along with a crowd of unrecognizable people. I looked around for a moment realizing where I was then I looked back at the worried gaze of my friend.
"Henry? What happened?" He helped sit me up.
"You had a-a weird athsma attack or something and just completley passed out..."
I rubbed my head. I remebered the bell ringing and we started going to fourth period. I wanted to stop by

//solatium : the easing or alleviation of a person’s feelings of grief or distress.
The obscure form of the night loomed over the entirety of the city, illuminated by little bright torches which dotted the black profile of the sky in a mesmerizingly irregular order. All was silent and asleep in that location; the electric lights were turned off, in order for the brighter and most admired ones to shine freely in the width of the dark wings hovering over the inhabitants’ establishments.
It was three in the morning.
No human being was to be seen, if not for two high schoolers idly laying on the crispy and wet surface of the grass of a park residing in their houses’ whereabouts. Their fingers gently interlocked, their souls dancing

ZeroIn a life stuck in my own imagination being a child felt like I had lived a thousand years. Like any other kid my imagination was where I lived, where I thrived. But something that I did something I created, was different even dangerous. I assumed that I was normal, that nothing was wrong. But this was a mistake that everyone would regret, and everyone would fear.Zero4 days ago in Short Stories
"Stop it!" I screamed.
"Oh yeah, why should we?!" The girls yelled, kicking dirt into my face.
"Stop it or--or else Zero will come and get you!" I would yell, my eyes watering.
They just laughed, continuing to mock me. But then the air went silent. Nothing made a sound for several seconds, but I still refused to look up. I laid still on the dirt, covering my face until I heard the three girls yell and run away. Finally I heard a voice, a soft but sly voice.
"Hey, it's alright. You can get up now."
I rubbed my sleeve across my face, trying to wipe away the snot and tears. Looking up I saw what looked like a young woman, but so

As she’d expected when Phil was deep in a technical puzzle, Aggie didn’t see much of him unless she visited the lab. The main exception was when she arrived home from her university classes, he would always be there at the door, waiting for her and looking worried.
On Friday, the Phil that met her looked excited instead. The first thing he said after hugging her was, “I did it!”
Aggie danced a victory jig with him, laughing as she did. When they stopped, she asked, “You managed to get diamond-boosted entangles to go further?”
“Oh, yeah, that too,” said Phil dismissively. “Unfortunately, diminishing returns limits it to a little over half a mile.”
Aggie kicked the door closed behind them, then started toward the stairs to the lab, one arm still around Phil. “Then what did you do?”
Phil pulled two lockets out of his pocket. “I made these.”

Oikawa always ends up staring at your eyes. No matter how many times he tries to look away or tries to ignore your glimmering and shining [e/c] eyes, he always ends up looking at them in the end. It’s cheesy, he had to admit that – it’s very cheesy; somewhat like those old romantic cliche movies that you’d see every once in a while, but he loves your eyes and he loves staring at them; and a huge smile breaks in to his face when he stares at you. You would always respond to him by giving him a furrowed eyebrow, mouthing a quiet ‘What?’ as if you were questioning his actions, but he would merely let out a soft laugh before pulling you closer to himself and wrapping his strong arms around your waist, quietly murmuring mellow words of ‘I love you’ and ‘You mean so much to me.’
“I love you,” he would say, “I love each and every piece of you.”
He has always been so affectionate; he

after each late night you knocked on my door
through each smile you managed to crack
every time my gaze lingered
through the thick glass of those empty bottles
in the ashes of those cigarettes
But all I saw was you laugh it all off.
Though I didn’t know at the time.
I should have seen it
I looked at you enough
You always seemed to have things under control
I couldn’t see past the precise perfection of your one-man masquerade
Excuse me while I figure this out
How could I pay so much attention but miss the pain you felt?
Where was I?
Why didn’t I try hard enough to be by your side?
The pain tears me up inside
to think of the tears you always managed to hide
That nothing I could do would stop you
But then I think
If I was there, would I have been able to help?
To save you from that knot in your throat
To save you from having to forget
To usurp you from your glass bottle throne

Ayo's Nursery IncidentA sprig of ashy white hair crested the broken boards and cobbled-over windows of the storefront that had seemingly shown up overnight. Breaking curfew with a mind for adventure, a tiny boy, Ayo- meek in appearance but never in heart- crept up to the bent iron shutters and peeked into the darkness beyond. That which beckoned was a soft scent not unlike a kindergarten- like crayons and old coloring books. That was an odd odor to reach his nose in what looked to be a seemingly inconspicuous little hovel at the edge of town.Ayo's Nursery Incident3 days ago in Short Stories
Sneaking around to the side to avoid invisible sentries that existed only in his fantastical imagination, Ayo found that the alley was similarly barren. There were a few upturned aluminum trash bins and several dumpsters that seemed automated- and quite locked. He peered up over one of the dumpsters to find it stood near to a chute and a window. The window was completely smashed, no traces of glass remained in the largest of the panes. It was double his slim size, and

The sun appears like an explosion as we fly over the Mediterranean. More than at any other moment i wonder who this monster behind me really is. His flesh is like that of a bird, but his form is that of a human and i keep seeing the tips of his feather-full wings.
Huh, maybe earth, like heaven, has angels?
We've been flying for too long, time has changed me and healed my pain, though my doubts still remain. There's no longer words between us, nor movement. It's like we've become still life, only his wings move at the side of our shoulders.

The demonic beast looked down upon Godzilla as if the small monster were a mere speck of dust in comparison to his power. His pitch black eyes blasted into the soul of Godzilla, whose eyes were enlarged with fear over the sight of the giant foe. Red King lips slowly made a smirk when he fully examined his opponent; an opponent who only came up to his knee…barley.
“THIS is the foe who dares wake me, the Red King?” Red King’s smirk turned into a smile as he looked upon Godzilla once again “You HAVE GOT to be kidding me? This little lizard wake the all-powerful RED KING?! HA!” with one flick, Red King’s tail slammed into the side of the gorge with almighty force. Rocks flew from the point of impact, soaring through the sides of the ravine like bullets fired from a gun. Godzilla ducked as the larger stones piled up near him, Red King chuckling all the way through the boulder slide. The little monster screeched thro

The New Psychic [COMMISSION]The New Psychic [COMMISSION]2 days ago in Short Stories
Tyler ran a blog where he posted various reviews of up and coming businesses. From pizzerias to coffee shops he did them all. Excepting for one particular kind of business. He never went to anything dealing with superstition or future predicts. This ranged from psychics to palm readers. He personally believed it was just a giant scam. They would only tell you what you truly wanted to hear, or tell you what you didn't want to hear to make you pay more.
That would change today. A brand new medium shop opened up seemingly out of nowhere, which was peculiar all in it's own. Tyler allowed himself to say where he was from and currently living, so when the psychic opened up shop his inbox was getting flooded with requests to check it out. This always happened when just about anything popped up, but these kind of businesses were generally the worst as per Tyler's rule; everyone begging for him to make one special exception.
This time it was enough. Tyler gave into all the messages

Slowly her round eye narrowed slightly at me, at the world. “You believe I do not? Would that that were the case. Glow I could, then, as intense and hot as the egoistic sun. Never faltering. Never blinking. Never changing course.”
“Yet cold and withdrawn have I become, out of necessity, veiling myself, striving to contend with the tragedies played out below me since the dawn of time.” The eye with its cataract became a sliver. “Had I not, perpetually would the crystalline drops of my sorrow rain down until the oceans and seas engulfed their shores and deluged the earth, as once came to pass.”
My head dipped low.

Heather and the Human MermaidHeather and the Human Mermaid4 days ago in Short Stories
The ocean waters were eerily calm. Normally, you’d see all sorts of fish swim around during midday…but today was different. Today was rather slow, much to the annoyance of young water-lover Heather Divine.
“Mmmmmm…” Heather’s bored voice droned out of a noseful of bubbles. Not a single fish out today, she thought to herself. On days like this, Heather normally sat on top of her favorite rock formation and watched as the fishes passed by, but for some reason, the big blue was significantly less crowded today.
Heather pouted, letting a few more bubbles free and puffing her cheeks out a little moreso than usual. It feels like I’ve been down here for hours, she thought. She rolled up her sleeve and checked her watch…two minutes, thirty-nine seconds.
Welp, so much for this, she thought. I still have plenty of time, though…why not get something for Miss Joanna while I’m here? With that, she jumped off the

"Uhhhh...." Michael Cole groaned as he rolled onto his side, trying to drone out the sounds of the voice in his ear. It was too late for talk and he was too tired.
"Miiiiike. Mike! Wake up, Mike!"
Cole groaned again, and proceeded to yank the covers closer to him, now annoyed at the voice.
The owner of the voice, however, expected this. Luke Fisher chuckled slightly as his younger cousin shifted and groaned, attempting to get out of what the three boys had planned to do since they had first heard about this trip.
See, the Cole-Fisher family wasn't exactly at home right now. Hell, their home wasn't even in the same state at the moment. The entire family had taken a week long trip up to Lake Ouachita in Arkansas for a bit of relaxation next to the lake's crystal blue waters.
So, Luke and Cole, as well as Luke's younger brother Will, had planned to sneak off sometime and go cliff diving without adult supervision, si
