Deeply regret to advise you Titanic sank this morning, the fifteenth, after a collision with an iceberg resulting in serious loss of life. Further particulars later.
At 2:20 AM Atlantic Standard Time on the morning of April 15, 1912, the largest and most luxurious man-made object that had ever been moved, the Royal Mail Steamer (RMS) Titanic, disappeared beneath the calm waters of the North Atlantic about 370 miles or 600 kilometers south-southeast of the coast of Newfoundland, leaving behind her the majority of 2,208 living, breathing human beings— people with families, dreams, hopes, ambitions, and plans— struggling to stay afloat in the frigid ocean water. Among them were the world's richest and most famous and influential individ
The Search of the HummingbirdOnce there lived a hummingbird who loved to gaze at stars.The Search of the Hummingbird3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
She breezed through days, awaiting the rolling summer nights, which unfurled like fresh-paved highways.
"Hello, star," said the hummingbird one evening. "You are the loveliest sight in the world."
"I am not a star," replied the tiny light. "The stars are what you see hanging there above you, far overhead. The stars are not real. They are the past, the once-was, the no-longer. I am a firefly. We are the now."
"I never knew," marveled the hummingbird. "Tell me more."
And so the hummingbird and the firefly conversed until the dawn. The next night the hummingbird returned, and the night after, and after again. They talked of air and earth and all between, of stalks of wheat and distant thunder.
"How do you know so very much?" asked the hummingbird.
"It is not I, but the light within me, that knows," said the firefly. "Light knows. Darkness also knows. It is the spaces in between which do not know."
"I, too, wish to know," said the

Last night, I dreamt of us.
We were together on a mountaintop,
I was sitting on the edge,
With my legs dangling above the bottomless pit,
With a lone, white chrysanthemum in my hand as I pull the petals from the stem.
While you were standing above me, looking on, languidly,
None of us wanting to say anything,
My own mental battle sewing my lips to one another,
Unable to speak,
While you were probably trapped within your own mental depths;
In my mind, I was debating between venting and jumping,
Simply over the fact I didn’t know what that look was in your eyes,
But I think that’s probably the point, that we’re no longer of the same kind,
Maybe I changed into something I’m unaware of, maybe you were the one to transform,
But I don’t get the same feel of what used to be,
This is foreign to me,
An unapologetic feeling of extreme apathy,
And that is the unfortunate reality of this situation,
No matter how long

I used to pace from the cabinet

I hid behind our yellow shed and guzzled

Sophia coughed fragilely into her hands with a powerful urge telling her to lie down, but she just kept on with her trek through the dark, root-infested forest. She tripped over fallen branches and her heart hammered during her run away; the world was freezing cold and the only source of lighting were but the moon gems stuck within the curly, thick trees dull, lifeless, barely helping the poor sick one out during such a dilemma. She felt something in her head pounding with her hand remained clutched around her dead flashlight, her memories of that nightmare haunting her in the frightening darkness. Tears fell down her face whilst she hopped over roots and tripped through black bushes of frost and leaves, fear overpowering her senses with bitterness. The woods were silent, their tree canopies so high and so covered that not a speck of snow from the storm above managed to

Campara was adjusting her eye shades (that a certain someone with a metal tongue gave her) in the plaza of the carnival when she heard a familiar, anxious voice call out a few feet behind her. She made a deep sigh of both annoyance and wonder when she turned around to see Tin squeeze and slip through masses of freaks, great anxiety plastered all over his face. He slid on the cobblestone ground to where the mistress stood and he put his hand on her shoulder to support himself while he panted harshly out of exhaustion. "W-w-wait for me, will you please!?" She put on an irritated frown and crossed her arms when he crouched down to put his hands on his knees, still breathing strongly. For about forty minutes he has been chasing and falling behind her as she went off to check new things like an excited tourist. "G-goodness gracious, don't be so quick to lose me!"

Pendulum Tin took a gaze at her as he sat in the snow; Zero was right. She actually was quite attractive if you took a good look at her. Besides the uneven fangs and exaggerated eyelashes, her clean skin and wispy, shiny black hair got his attention. They sat side by side in the snow, sitting far away from the ledge of the high oasis they made it to, relieved that they can enjoy the calm snowy night and the big, white moon right in front of them.

So close yet so far. Esther sat on her bed, looking into the beady black eyes of the blue horse plush. The tall man, he always seemed to disappear when she wasn’t looking. She just needed an opportunity to speak to him, to see if he remembers that day. But he didn’t even seem to notice her when it happened. He might not even know what he’s done for her.
Esther sighed, she wanted to go look for him some more; but first thing’s first, she needed a job.

Fortunately, Esther managed to find a job after quite a bit of searching. She was hired to work as a waitress at a local bar. It was a decent job, not too difficult or extreme; although it was a bother to have to work around drunken men.
One night when working at the bar, there was someone new among the usual rabble of alcoholics. He was sipping a beer while looking through some files. He had brown hair and a dark brown jacket on. As she passed by, Esther kept attempting to look at the files and read a sentenc

Then she decided to go deeper, Esther found the little dirt path that he was walking the other night. She followed it into the woods to look around. She didn’t want to get lost, so she stayed on the trail. Esther searched the trees and looked for a sign of him, but she found none.

Sophia could only stare with wide, dazzling eyes at the beauty that stood before her, shimmering in snow and clean blue lights. With the carriage ceiling down and mechanical umbrellas high above their heads to shield them from the rain, the girl and the Meowsician looked from their self-driven vehicle at the magnificence that was called the Theater District, miles away from Kallavient Carnival and even farther from the Emptylands, now settling back in another part of Downtown Decembersville. As the carriage rolled forward, meeting itself with the icy tiled floors of the outside lanes, Sophia gazed at the differences in architectural design from the Neighborhood and other parts of the freakish city. All around her were tall and eccentrically-shaped buildings, yes, but even taller staircases and balloon lanterns as well. The residents chatt
