People Watching, Toy Shopping“I need to transform someone.” Phoebe said in a bored tone, and her statement said in the same way she might say she needed new shoes. She had an aura of darkness around her that was completely fake. Long dark hair, a little too much dark makeup around her eyes, and rich black lipstick. Her clothes tended to show more colors, like todays purple dress and black tights. But Phoebe squeed at cute things and swooned over Legolas just as much as most girls.People Watching, Toy Shopping1 year ago in Short Stories More Like This
Donna coughed and almost spit out her latte when she heard her best friends’ comment. “Aren’t your witchy powers supposed to be a secret?”
Phoebe shrugged, “Eh.” She leaned back in her chair at the food court. A quiet hum of talking filled the concourse, which was only a quarter full this Wednesday night. Pedestrians and shoppers strolled through the walkway at their own paces, and salesmen and salesgirls looked bored at their kiosks.

"No thanks," he said, hurriedly, bringing a pout to her lips. She glared at him, hard enough to make him shift uncomfortably, her child like face pulled up in annoyance.
It burst into a giggle at the last moment at the last moment, her voice bursting into joviality as she informed him, "I was gonna talk to you about fighting, siiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiilly!"
He nodded, glancing to the door and wondering how far it would be to make a run for it, deciding it was worth the risk as she burst into a fresh discussion. She gripped his arm as he slipped past, her pout coming forth again. "If you're gonna go out, can you check on my sister? I left her out there 'cause she was getting on my nerves about something or another I dunno think she wanted to eat. As if that wouldn't ruin her future rigueur!"

A Replacement BallerinaJacob was a teenager being dragged by his parents to his little sister's ballet recital. His white sneakers kicked back and forth on the white linoleum floor of the hallway and his hands sunk deep into the pockets of his denim blue jeans as he leaned against the wall, waiting for the show to start and the PA to announe that the show was going to start. His dark green T-shirt clung to his chest due to gravity and his short brown hair stuck to the back of his head as his green eyes caught sight of his sister, pointing to him and making "follow me" motions with her right hand. He sight as he straightened himself and followed her, eventually finding himself backstage.A Replacement Ballerina1 year ago in Short Stories More Like This

"Vennesa isn't here yet!" Lisa responded with a trace of worry in her voice.

"I need you to replace her," Lisa replied frankly.
"What! How do you expect me to do that?" He whisper-yelled. Lisa suddenly cracked

Then, something caught his eye. Right where the old DQ resteraunt used to be, was a strange old store.
He walked in, and just as he did that, he felt like he got shorter. "must be my imagination." he thought to himself.
All over the place was dolls of every shape and size. Jackson rubbed his eyes. This couldnt be real.
He was just about to touch one, but his hands would move. "What the..." is all he managed to say before his mouth vanished.
He shrank down to about the size of the doll he was about to touch. He felt a part on his body dissapear, and 2 appear. His visibility faded for a moment. When the world came back into focus, dark red hair covered his view.
"My,my,my. Who do we have here?" Said an old, crackly voice. A boney finger brushed the red hair away, giving him a clear view of a huge, acheint face. The old lady must be 10 stories tall! thought jackson. But then he remembered he was only a few inchs tall.
The Felt Doll I woke up with my head pounding hard, and there were aches all over my body. "What happened..." I tried to say, but it only came out as a muffle. Then my eyes shot open in a panic and I began to struggle, realizing I was stuck in something. "Oh Ben, you'll make such a good dolly." I was laying down across me sister's lap, and she seemed to be sewing something onto me. As I put my head forward, I realized that my arms had been bound with an arm bounder behind me, and my legs were also bound to the sides of my body.The Felt Doll1 year ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
There was cloth completely covering me from my waist down, and my sister seemed to be busy stitching the cloth together, forming a body suit out of the cloth. As I continued to scream, she stitched all the way up to my chest, and over my bound arms. Then she put two very large bowls on my chest, and continued to stitch over them, making them stuck to my chest.
She stitched the cloth all the way up my neck and over my head, until my face was the only thing not cove

"I just don't understand where this is going."
"Where what is going?"
"Us! Where is this relationship headed? We just watch movies on Friday nights and text. Do you even love me anymore?"
"Of course I love you! Where is this coming from?"
I was getting nervous, I didn't know why she suddenly was in a temper tantrum, but I was afraid it was going to end with the end of our relationship, and I didn't want that.
"Its coming from the fact that we never have any fun! Why don't we have fun like we used to?"
"Well, we can have fun! What do you want to do?"
"I don't know, just something we could both enjoy together!"

When she walks through the halls, it's like she expects us to bow to her, which some people actually do out of being scared. You'd think that the little girl would be picked on quite a bit, being so young and rich, but of course she has two way buff body guards following her everywhere.
It all started when I was having the worst day of my life. I had completely bombed the test I had spent hours studying the night before, only to realize I had studied the wrong chapter. My lunch had spilled all over the ground, and I've been more tired then, than any other time of my life.
I caught a glimpse of the little girl heading towards the girl's bathroom. Before she got there, I quickly slipped into the bathroom myself. The little g

"What's the point of studying in another city if I don't get a few souvenirs?" Sarah had said to her, before her expedition to the shopping mall, to get something to bring home once she had finished her course at the college she was studying at. Now she wished she had listened to her, since in the hour or so she had spent there, she hadn't managed to find anything worth buying. Just more generic stores, something she had been to far more than enough.
She sighed as she headed down an alley, away from the more modern areas, where only a few small family-owned stores remained, most of them driven out of business by the attraction of the large mall. However, she stopped as she reached one particular store, hidden away far out of the sight of most the regular mall patrons but just close enough to make sure that it at least attracted some customers, and headed to

As she entered the airport, Carla was led to the room where she'd pose for a passport picture by a receptionist. "Huh, quiet here today huh?" Carla said as the airport seemed completely empty. "Oh, we're not technically open yet, you're allowed in cause of the special flight!" The receptionist replied. "AHHH!" Carla said, understanding better now.
She was led into a small room with a camera behind a glass wall. "Say cheese.' The receptionist said as they got behind the camera. "CHEESE!" Carla said cheerfully.
There was a loud "SLAM' as the back wall of the room smashed with the first as both moved toward her. When they moved away, Carla was standing flat and in the pose she too

Keegan held the two blank-faced plush dolls in his hands thoughtfully, as if contemplating their weight. He looked at the marker that came with the dolls. On one side was a black marker, the other was tipped with a white eraser. He thought for a moment and looked at the back. There was a tag, labelled "victim's name". He looked at the pen and grinned, writing names on the two dolls. With that, he went to Kelly's closet to dig out some of her old dolls, he needed their clothes.
When he came back, he sat down, grinning.
"A, or B?" he asked himself. After a moment, he flipped a coin. Checking the outcome, he smiled and pulled out a large (for a doll) yellow dress, much like one a Southern Belle would wear. He smirked, putting it on one of the dolls.

Tobias and Carla are two different people. Neither of them knows the other, nor will they. They are two unconnected individuals… connected only by one thing, one company, one situation. At AKEA…
Tobias sighed, wearing the standard AKEA uniform all employees wore. This was his third day on the job, and so far, he disliked every moment of it. He wasn't even sure how he got the job, but he knew it had something to do with his friend Keegan. He had been building a case against them for quite a while… no doubt they were either trying to get on his good side by having Tobias trying to convince him what a great place it was, or getting to him through Tobias. Or, it was all a coincidence and Tobias was lucky to have a job at the largest commercial chain in the world.
Carla walked into the store, looking around. She had heard about how big AKEA was, but had never really believed it, until now. She walked through the various departments, looking for the toy

She passed an old bookstore, an abandoned store, and was about to give up and go back to the more populated shopping area, when she spotted a small shop tucked away in a corner, just close enough to attract customers, but far away enough to guarantee that it would remain a small business.The doll shop3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
She walked up to the window, and curiously couldn't find any mention of a name, but what she could see, were rows of small, intricately detailed porcelain dolls. She bent down to examine them closely, and was amazed by how lifelike they were, the stitching on their elaborate dresses just as minutely detailed as the real thing. The store having piqued her curiosity, Sarah decided to go inside.
Sarah Young was a nineteen year old university student away from home studying her art degree, and had gone into the shopping centre to find a present for her sister back home, but hadn't found anything that satisfied her
A Doll for the Witch's KidGabrielle arrived at the job a little early. As she was wearing a baggy sweatshirt and pajama pants, it was hard to tell that the blonde haired woman was a local model. Though it might seem strange that Gabrielle would take a job modeling at a toy store, these were the jobs that the woman enjoyed. They were small and quirky, but also had a native charm that drew Gabrielle to them.A Doll for the Witch's Kid3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
The toy store had been granted prime real estate near to the mall's food court, on the first floor. It was as brightly lit as any toy store Gabby had ever been to, with blue carpeting and varieties of common toys. The model knocked on the still gated door and waited patiently for a young goateed man to come to the front. He was a thin man, and only just Gabby's shortish height.
"You the other model?"
Gabby nodded, and he pointed her to the back. With little more guidance, Gabby walked to the back room where a makeshift makeup table had been set up. There was another model there, already dressed in blue ballet

At least I didn't have to feed them lunch, it was right after lunchtime then. I walked downstairs to meet the three girls. One looked to be about four, one looked five, and the oldest looked six. "Hi guys, what do you want to do first?" I asked enthusiastically. "I want to play with dolls." The oldest one said, and the other two agreed.
"No way, I don't play with dolls." I said, not necessarily trying to be blunt. "But we want to play with dolls!" The girls whined, and I shook my head. The eyes of the oldest one narrowed. "Get him." I raised an eyebrow, just in time for the three girls to tackle me to the ground.

Zelda was already tired of Christmas and it wasn't even December yet. Black Friday had past thankfully. However, already throughout the mall everywhere was garland, lights, and worst of all Christmas Music through the intercoms. Zelda would not say she found the whole thing sickening because it's not that she was a Grinch or anything, but it just was the exploitation of it left her tired of Christmas before December even arrives. She also understood the wheels of capitalism and all that, yet it just felt wrong how more and more stores were having employees to work on Christmas Day.
Zelda today wore a blue stripped toboggan, red sweater, and finally insulated jeans and boots to combat the cold. Although, once she got inside she took off the sweater and hung it over her shoulder revealing her pink tank top. She picked it out today in a mood that protested the season.

"Because it's Barbie, she's been blonde since the fifties."
I glanced at the row of highlighter pink plastic boxes as we looked through the Girl's aisle at Wal-Mart. The fluorescent lights beat down on us and the neon glare had begun to hurt my eyes.
"She has blue eyes too, just like you."
"My eyes aren't blue, they're gray."
I promised my little sister that I would pick her up a toy from Wal-Mart when I came down from college for the holiday season. I had to admit, her method of inquiry was beginning to grate on my nerves. I loved her, but it had been non-stop sister-sister time and I was ready for a little space again. Thank God the term would be starting up soon.

It was all because of that stupid doll. All those hurtful comments sprouted from that one doll. Everyone called me names because of it. I hid in the shadows because of that doll. Why did it have to be me? That doll could have done this to anyone else. But no, it had to be me.
On my sixth birthday, I was extremely excited. My mom said that I was getting everything I wanted. One of those things was a Barbie doll. Her perfect blonde hair, her pretty blue eyes...she reminded me of myself. I searched through every present, looking for anything that was in the shape of the box that the Barbie doll was kept in. I found it.
I picked up the doll and tiptoed away from the crowd. I examined the gift carefully, then tore at the wrapping paper. I flung the bag behind me and saw a Barbie doll. The box was pink with black stripes with the word 'BARBIE' written in purple cursive letters across the side. On the back, the blonde doll was in a horrible cute pose: one hand on her hip, one hand on h
Dorm Room Dolls (inanimate tf)Jessie liked watching the world from her dorm window, drab as it was. She faced the dorm's inner courtyard. The concrete was broken with blades of grass poking through the cracks. The benches were worn and a little splintery. The courtyard was normally the hub of activity. It was empty now, as most of the students of the Wilson Grant Dorm had fled for warmer weather this spring break. Nonetheless, Jessie kept watching and doodling on her pad when she got inspiration. She had a project due at the end of spring break, and she had not yet come up with an idea of how to start it.
