Page-A-Day 365 Challenge: Day 43 I normally read on the train ride to school every morning, but there is one point that I always look up form my book. It's the few seconds between the last few buildings and before we enter the tunnel. It's there that I get the best view of the wall of clouds that surrounds our city. I can see their movement as a result of the high winds that are inside. The constant flashed of lightning that illuminate the dark grey mass. It's certainly a sight to see, one that always seems to be over too soon.Page-A-Day 365 Challenge: Day 433 hours ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
No one knows where the clouds came from. What their purpose is. Whether or not they're even the result of the weather. They're a mystery to us. There have been a few groups that have tried to go out and study them, but they were never heard from again. Electronic devices like probes last only a few seconds before contact is lost with them. We're locked away in here, with no idea of what our situation is. The outside world has become a mystery to us. Really, I don't e
Chloe 2.1By now, she'd become used to the names, the jibes and the general abuse; by and large, Nancy provided shelter from it all, but every now and again she'd be left to fend for herself and in those cases, going out for lunch break changed from being a welcome break, to facing a jungle full of predators.Chloe 2.112 hours ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
This was one of those times.
Nancy had needed to hang back for a bit in the art studio to work on her sculpture, and she could hardly begrudge her for it - Nancy's true calling in life, if she had any at all, would be to make art that stunned even the most stuffy of critics, but that left her alone in the world for about an hour.
She stood at the window for a moment and looked down at the other kids milling around, keeping an eye out for the more troublesome ones.
From here, she could see a couple of them hanging around at the far end of the courtyard, but if they noticed her at all, she'd have got herself into the canteen by then, and once inside, even Tabitha couldn't touch her if s

(Leer descripción, no importa si la leen antes o después, pero por faaa léanla)
Miro al cielo desde el solitario campanario; El olor a tierra húmeda se hace presente, pues aquella noche el cielo dejó caer su melancolía sobre la ciudad, mojando con celestiales lágrimas el orco enfermo al que los humanos llaman hogar. En pocas palabras, había llovido.
Esa noche, como es habitual, desperté de mi letargo. La dura, fría, y tiesa piedra me dio libertad de movimiento; dejando que el cuerpo inerte y carente de conciencia se disolviera mientras más pasaban los segundos, volviéndose a convertir en aquel mundano parásito, desterrado de la misericordia de Dios. Condenado a no ver más la luz del amanecer, condenado a no ver más la luz del sol; pues apenas el día asoma sus primeros rayos dorados, mi cuerpo se vuelve pesada e inmóvil roca. De noche al caer la penumbra y cuando el cielo se ti

Ren Magura turned toward the uncomfortable Josh Levingston sitting and holding onto the hull of the ship. Magura himself was quite comfortable zooming around the universe at light speeds.
“Levingston!” he shouted frightening the man even more. Then he picked up a bag labeled communicators and opened it up.
“What are you doing?” asked Levingston as he sat promptly.
Magura put a finger to his mouth. “You need to keep your mind off of things” he said as he pulled out two metallic wrist bands with circular devises attached to them. He chucked one over to Levingston. “Here were going to practice!”
Levingston caught the wrist band and put it on. In response to his thoughts the wrist band circular devise lit up and projected a holographic image of a space ship “quite like theirs” blowing up via an asteroid in the belly.
Magura shook his head. His band projected a roller coaster with him and Levingston riding it. The roller coaster se
