WinterI sneezed, not bothering to cover it as I walked down the brightly lit streets of my home town.Winter5 days ago in Stories & Vignettes More Like This
Snow was pushed against the sidewalks, creating a white barrier between the walkway and road. Icicles hung from over hangs, dripping with water. I reached my tongue out, desperately trying to catch a snowflake falling from the sky.
My hands clutched onto a paper cup half full of hot cocoa, seeking warmth even though they were covered in black cotton gloves.
Thank Artur I wasn't still in my crutches or else I would've slipped by now. Lucky me I had a pair of fluffy snow boots to keep me warm.
I sighed, burrowing deeper into my scarf as I reached up and pressed the big, fake wolf head attached to my hat down. Warmth flooded my face as the thick faux fur further warmed me.
"I hate winter..." I mumbled, sipping from my cup. "But I love it."
I narrowed my eyes and looked at the sky. "We have a love-hate relationship, don't we?" I asked no one in particuliar and almost as if it agreed, the sky sen

In the Ponyville hospital, there was a part for the patients with mental problems. In one of the rooms, a stallion called Sharp Mind was looking at the door:"I shouldn't be here, I don't deserve to be here." His roommate, a mare called Demo Reel was lying on her bed, when she said:"That's what I said too, but the ponies in hospital put the opinion of the guy i tied up and trapped in a cave over mine. Can you believe that?"
"Ugh, like YOU would understand."
"That's because you never told me. No wonder they put you in here."
"I wasn't always like this, I used to be a repair-pony, and a pretty good one, I might add. But that joke of a repair-pony called Gear got all the attention that was supposed to go to me."
"That pony with a miscolored tail, a living object as a pet and a few inventions he made?"
"Do you HAVE to rub it in!? Anyway, I had no business for 2 months, so I had to do something big."

Where is the universe expanding? We as humans often like to define things in an effort to better our understanding of the universe. We are so fixated on the presence of objects that we forget that most of the universe is nothingness, but is that true. If the universe truly is expanding, which we do believe so, what is it expanding into? How can space that is nothingness be expanding into more nothingness, without that area already being called space? Space lies within the physical world so it can only be properly called the absence of matter but not nothingness. Nothingness would be the “place”, if you can call it that, outside of the universe only defined by its absence of absence and matter for it is neither. When I try to picture it I see the universe in the shape of a big black bubble with a few incased specs of light and color expanding outward into a white canvas much like words onto this piece of paper. The canvas is not a perfect simile for nothingness but represents the absWhere is the universe expanding?6 days ago in Stories & Vignettes More Like This

I'll start on my first experience. I was around four at the time. My dad used to have this Halloween mask that went to an old grim reaper costume so as you can guess, it was a skull.
One day, my mom was doing laundry in her room and I went into my room to do something when I looked into my closet to see something close to my dad's Halloween mask looking down at me from the high shelf up in my closet.
“Mom!” I screamed, running to my mom. I knew that the mask was with the Halloween decorations and it was not fall. I shouldn't have seen that mask.
“What is it?” my mom asked, slightly spooked.
“There's a skull in my closet!” I cried. My mom looked at me funny, but went t

“It’s nice, huh otaku?” Erik who was now lying next to me said. The way he said it was arrogant, but I let it go only responding with a simple “Yeah.” “They are really bright.” “Yeah.” “But of course, you shine brighter than any star.” “Yeah.. Wait, WHAT?!” I jumped up, and looked at Erik waiting for him to say “Gotcha,” or “I can’t believe you fell for that dumb otaku.” At the very least I expected him to laugh at my reaction, but nothing. I began glaring at him trying to get him to get him to stop joking. That’s when I noticed his eyes. They looked so seriou

Heat. It's what gives the Earth life as well as water and air. What can possibly go wrong with heat? Lots of things. Bushfires and heatwaves are just some of the many things caused by heat. Today, 22/08/2015 feels like Summer. It's August, the last month of Winter and sure, we're nearing Spring and it may start to get a bit hot but we were expecting cold temperatures today. I can tell you that it was really hot when I went outside this morning to go to tutoring. It was hot. When I went out again to piano lessons, it was even hotter. Even the wind was hot. Right here in Australia, we're expecting an El Nino to hit soon. I say, we're all going to have a hard time and especially with global warming on the rise, this El Nino will be deadly. Seriously deadly. The Summer temperatures are going to be higher than usual and it's not good.

FriendFirst, let me explain that this will be an extremely short story seeing as I was much younger, and I can't remember all the details. Sorry.Friend1 week ago in Stories & Vignettes More Like This
One especially hot April day in 2013, I was watching squirrels play in my grandmother's back yard. I had been grieving my Granny's death for three years now. I heard someone call my name, so I turned around. I saw nothing but a six foot tall shadow in the far right corner from where I was standing. At first I thought it was mine, until I realized that the sun was above me. Much less outside. Other than that, it looked like it could have been my shadow. Until it disappeared. I screamed and ran out of the room. The house grew quite chilly and I blacked out. I black out a lot. I can't remember much after that except for a year or so later when I went back into the room. Now, this I remember quite vividly. The room felt much different. Much colder, yet not eerie or dangerous. I pulled out my camcorder and my phone to use as an EVP recorder. I quickly b

Nathan smiled, “Oh was it busy. With Amelia going into labour, all of the Harpers ran out to wait at the hospital. Since it took a while for our family to get there, Amelia was accompanied by a few of her friends and there wasn’t any room for my mom or dad to go in. We just decided to wait until the baby was born.”
Elaine sat back, fumbling with a magazine, and said, “I can’t believe I’m going to be a grandmother. Oh, this is exciting.”
“You and me both, honey,” replied Luke.
Edward and Madison sat together and Edward sat up in his chair. He smiled and said, “Yeah, it will be nice to give Matrix a little buddy to play with.”
Madison lightly punched Edward’s shoulder, “Oh, you’re just excited to become an uncle.”
“Oh yes, I will be the cool uncle. I will take that little guy on hunting trips and I’ll teach him the ropes.”

Nathan allowed his eyes to well with tears after he had spoken about Amelia’s rape. He took a moment to wipe his eyes. Bobby was struggling not to cry. Nathan continued, “Amelia was really ashamed about what happened to her. She took 2 weeks off of work so she could try and emotionally recover. She was starting to become her old self until she noticed she was feeling sick in the mornings and was throwing up. Concerned, she bought a few pregnancy tests and tried them out. All of them came out positive. She was pregnant. Amelia decided it was best to tell Rick before she told the family.”
Rick entered the apartment door. There was a box of pizza on the kitchen table. “You know I love pizza,” Rick said. “Let’s eat.”
“Rick,” Amelia said, “before we eat, could I talk to you for a minute?”
“Sure, babe.” Rick sat down beside her. “What is it?”
Amelia took a deep breath. “How much do

Nathan spoke. “It was the year 1999. Amelia had been a physical therapist for a year by then. She had very happy clients and life seemed to go well for her. She was dating a man named Rick. She lived in Toronto in a small, but nice apartment. She and Rick didn’t live together at that time. They felt it was right to live separately for a year before moving in with each other. Amelia’s friend and roommate had moved out a few weeks before and had invited her over to watch a movie. She didn’t realize that that day would change her life forever.”
Amelia walked around her kitchen, the long cord on her phone slowly started spinning around her body. “So, movie tonight at six thirty… which theatre… the Revue Cinema? Gotcha… No, work today ends at six. I’ll just eat at a Burger King or somewhere… Don’t worry about me, Lucy. I’ll be there for the movie. ‘The Astronaut’s Wife’ sounds really go
A close encounter of the scary kindI froze in my tracks - on the telephone line a black alien creature had just come to a halt, having spotted me, about two-thirds of the way across the line. It looked vaguely like a black cat but I’d never seen a cat tightrope-walk on a telephone line before – I didn’t think it was possible, even for a cat! The only logical answer was that it was a rat, a rat as big as a cat! It was early evening and the light was poor so I couldn’t make out any other details. I was too scared to move any closer in the creature’s direction; in fact, I was terrified it would scramble down and chase me! It didn’t reverse direction, slink or cower as it should have done having spotted a human. It seemed intelligent. It knew I was there looking at it and it remained where it was, high up on the phone line, motionless, waiting…. The air was still and warm. After being rooted to the spot several minutes I finally made my move and it was to backtrack slowly, and leaveA close encounter of the scary kind1 week ago in Stories & Vignettes More Like This
Thoughts on a Trip Up NorthIt’s silent in the grey wasteland that stretches between this car and the airport terminal. Hazy cones of light latch onto the contorting mass of roads below, as they cross, twist and ensnare one another like a gigantic game of snakes and ladders. A lighthouse of sorts stands amidst the roads, sweeping and turning; white, blue, white, blue, white, blue… A constant slow pulse: the city is alive, but sleeping – auxiliary lights blinking on and off in time with the slow rhythm of its breathing. It heaves a sigh, throwing a jet to the inky sky in the distance.Thoughts on a Trip Up North1 week ago in Stories & Vignettes More Like This
I’m slightly beyond myself as I drag my bag through the terminal foyer. There’s something detached about an airport in the early hours; men and women in high-vis, in suits, in loose-fitting tracksuits, walk mechanically through the winding passage to the check-ins desk. Our groggy mindlessness separates us; each walking in our own absent bubble. The city’s endless morning procession: each to
Shadows and LightsEveryone has seen those shadows and lights in the corner of their eyes, right? Well, whether you're religious or not, you must read this and understand what I have to say. I've heard that whichever one you see most - shadows or lights - is the side you've given control of your life to. Whether you believe in angels and demons or the universe, be careful. If you see more shadows than light, your life is most likely consumed by negativity or demons. However, if you see lights, mainly bright blue or white and sometimes a bright orangish-yellow, then you are on the good side - putting it simply.Shadows and Lights1 week ago in Stories & Vignettes More Like This
If you see them both, whether shadows more than lights or vice versa, your life is being fought for. That's where I stand, at least I think I do.
I will not disclose my real name or any personal details, but I will tell you this: I have seen demons and angels fighting for control over me.
