Shfting Sands and Three ShadowsThe sands are shifting and I can feel it. A sandstorm is headed my way. But do I care? I don’t. The palace is only a five minute walk away. Might as well stay here as long as I can. Nobody ever notices I’m gone unless I come back. I’m just the nameless princess with the dead parents and an advisor ruling the country till I come of age. I honestly doubt it. They don’t even know my birthday.Shfting Sands and Three Shadows1 day ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
I look back, three shadows stare back at me. One thing, they’re all mine. But none of them is me. There’s the long one, and a short one, and one that’s always wandering away. The long one always stands there, long hair flowing in the wind, on the other hand, I have short hair. The short one has a glass pebble in her hand all the time, and it sparkles the way shadows don’t, casting a green tinged sparkle near where her hand is. The one that constantly wanders away has short hair like mine, only that it’s straight and not wavy like mine is. She stay
A True Hero Chapter One: PointlessI woke up, feeling the usual depression already weighing me down. It was not going to be a good day. All I ever want is to wake up one morning and feel... real -- feel like I have moved past this, past whatever triggered my "condition."A True Hero Chapter One: Pointless2 days ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
That's what they call it, you know, a "condition." Whoever said that first needs to be shot. Like my everlasting sadness is some kind of disease that can be cured or, at the very least, treated by prescription medicine and a therapist.
Therapists are a joke too. They ask me, "What caused this?" and, "Let's explore your childhood further; I feel like the problem lies there."
I snort, hobbling to the master bathroom with a towel and a change of clothes in hand. No amount of "exploring" my past will "cure" me. I just feel... like I'm not worth anything; like I got educated for seventeen or eighteen years of my life for nothing. All I am capable of is photography and writing.
I have been published in photography magazines, the big ones, like, 'Pop Photograp

“I’m so sorry… I’m really late… I had an appointment… my name is Lorraine Kim.” The receptionist gave her a pissed off look and started typing something.
“Just sit down, we’ll call you when its time” She snapped.
Lorraine sat down and tried to catch her breath. Her heart was racing. She took out her bottle of water and gulped it down. The receptionist kept giving her weird, angry looks. She took out her phone and texted her mom to let her know that she was here.
“I was late, but I made it! I am at the doctor’s office now – L”

#E4K Book - Chapter 2Steph took her plate of cake and cup of tea upstairs to her room. She sat at her desk, and took a bite of the cake. It was delicious. The sponge was nice and soft, and the cream was delicious! She didn’t usually like jam but the taste of it blended well with the rest of the cake. She washed it down with a swig of tea and got back to her online chatting. She should have been doing her homework but it was all so easy, she’d have it done in the space of an hour. Steph was in fifth year. She was a great student, good attendance, straight A’s. She kept to herself mostly, the majority of her friends were online, and they lived in many different countries. She considered herself to be a kind of outcast, but everyone seemed to like her. She was never really bullied or anything like that, but she most definitely was not one of the “popular” kids.#E4K Book - Chapter 22 days ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
