Immediate Danger

Isabella listened to the ghoul's breathing. Its back was turned towards her and Mychal, but it would only be a matter of time until it would spot them. It only needed to turn back, walk a few steps forward and turn right. Mychal prayed silently to the powers that be that the ghoul would leave the room. Isabella clenched her training sword and wished that the ghoul would indeed leave and give her an opening to strike. Her sword would not do much if she did not hit the gaps in its armor, but the element of surprise might just give her enough time to slice its head off. By sheer luck, divine intervention or a trap being placed in front of them, the ghoul left the room. Isabella peeked from behind the desk to ensure that the door was closed. She let out the breath she had held, relieved; she could not leave the room yet, but at least now they were not in the most immediate danger. That did not change the fact that they were still in immediate danger as the ghoul was behind the door

A Delicious Dish

Shade looked at the dish in front of her. It was the most lavish one she had seen in ages; most of her employers did not invite her for dinner, let alone show off their wealth with it when they did. It was clear that this fidgety man was doing his best to show that he was capable of paying the vast sum of money that this hire would cost him. It was pathetic. Shade knew that no one who could not afford her could reach her; she knew who had the money to pay a hitman, and she knew exactly who had the money to pay a hitman of her level. However, she did not complain. Instead, she dug in and tasted the fish. Lavish or not, it was surprisingly delicious for what the rich buffoons considered gourmet. Usually, even after years of eating food that prioritized her health above her taste and thus tasted of flour, nothing or cardboard, the expensive gourmet she was served tasted like garbage. The delicious food did not make the man fidget any less, though. It was clear that he had

Banishment Day 155

Banishment Day 155

My first months stuck in Otherland had been tough on me, even after winter had turned to spring and all the remaining snow ran down the mountain on the other side of the cold river. Perhaps once summer would hit the valley I had been tossed down to, the water would be warm enough to drink without a long time spent heating it up. However, the absolute worst of my banishment from Dreamland was my insomnia. I have not slept in literal months, all nonstop. Luckily, it did not hinder me at all, but the amount of time I spent awake felt inhuman. I had no respite, not even a nap, in the form of sleep anymore. All because of what I had done out of greed. The moments leading to that point were already blurry in my memories. What had I been thinking? I had little idea anymore. What I had done was just... unfathomable at this point. Just unfathomable. What was I thinking? What was I thinking I would achieve with stealing our most powerful gemstone? Why had I thought that hurting Laytaha and

Holographic Stalker

It was watching me again. I knew it was the same hologram. It kept watching me, following me, being in the same places as I was no matter where I went and when. It was as if it had digested the data of my whereabouts and had the algorithm (frighteningly accurately) determine where I was most likely to be at this hour. It always kept its distance, but it was clear that it was following me everywhere I went. That hologram... was stalking me. As insane as it sounded, a hologram was stalking me. A hologram was stalking me. I knew no one would believe me, though. They'd just laugh in my face, call me paranoid and say that it couldn't possibly be the same hologram, that holograms weren't capable of such a thing, that their AIs were programmed only to imitate their real-life counterparts, nothing more, nothing less. However, I am certain of what I'm seeing. It is the same hologram and it's following me everywhere on this ship. And I don't know what to do about it.

FFM 2020: Grow

“Papa, don’t forget to do your injection.” Cara calls from the other room, and tilts her head around the corner of the door, just to check. Her father sees her, and rolls his eyes, his face creasing with old laugh lines. “I won’t forget.” Which is what he always says, but she knows better, and leaves the living room lights on because otherwise he’ll just fall asleep in his chair. “You’re meant to take it on a schedule.” Always the same exchange, every night. But she’s glad for it, because it means he’s still here. He grumbles, but to her surprise he gets up, grimacing with pain as his legs creak beneath him like old wood. Every day, the disease reaches a little further, takes over a little more of him. The medicine helps, but he has to take it regularly or it won’t work. Sometimes Cara wonders if it’s some subconscious thing. Maybe he wants to die. Maybe he’s tired. Maybe, it’s all of those things. She knows plenty of people live for years with the treatment, and manage to have

FFM20, 28: The Knight

We arrived at the borderlands at sunrise, and The Knight awaited us. The spikes on his helmet gleamed in the golden morning light. On his side of the border, reality rippled with the instability of a dreamscape. “You’ll leave my village alone?” I called. “I have your word?” “You have the offering?” I paused… and nodded. I returned home with a promise of peace, and the Knight returned to his lands with my son. The next time any of us saw my boy, he patrolled the borderlands, wearing the scowl of a stranger and the black-spiked helmet of The Knight.

Sacrifice to the River

Sacrifice to the River

The river burbled, appearing calm enough but for those that lived near, they knew it was just a facade. The current underneath could drag a grown man down in a matter of seconds. Liam stood at the edge still weighing the village’s options. The rains were too heavy this year. They flooded the fields, destroyed farms, and splashed close to the edge of the village, threatening to wash it away in the next downpour. The gods were angry. What angered them wasn’t known by anyone, but the solution was. A sacrifice was required. The knife in Liam’s hand was sharp and cold. It was the same knife used to slaughter a bull and offer its body to the river. The ovates had read the bull’s entrails to discern the future and what they predicted wasn’t promising. A higher sacrifice was required. It wasn’t often that a human sacrifice was made. It was taboo. Still, from time to time, it was required, but only in the most extreme circumstances. This was one of those circumstances. Only a willing

Keep an Eye on Your Baggage at All Times

Jenna leans into the seat, head propped up against a folded jacket, arms tight around her carry-on. Departing planes roar and whine and rumble, intermingling with the monotone of overhead announcements and with people talking, people walking, children racing along moving walkways, babies crying from thirst and heat and hunger and lack of sleep. Restful. At least, bereft of anything to do but rest. The departure screen shows a time two hours away. DELAYED. Jenna sighs and shifts her hands; the pad of an index finger brushes a ring, smooth and hard and sharp as it presses into her flesh. Lisa. She shifts again, stretching, rearranging her hands. Evens out her breathing. Waits. A sweet lullaby, that scream of engines through the glass. “Going or leaving?” Jenna blinks open a bleary eye. A man in a large hat stands smoking a pipe, in flagrant violation of the numerous NO SMOKING signs posted all around the terminal. He blows a blue-violet cloud into her face. Not tobacco: the scent

She stood at the shore and undid her braids, shivering as she began sensing more around her in the wind. Her sealskin cloak, once disguised as lambskin before being awakened and bound to her, billowed and fought to cling, flippers firmly gripped around her shoulders. The waves fell back before here where she stood overlooking the sea and revealed to her the seabed as she knew it would be. Rocks, twists, turns, caves, flopping fish and sharks, seaweeds and sea stars, along with innumerable other details beckoned her. The earth smelled wrong, felt wrong. Behind and below her the water from the underground streams and springs trembled. The Lady’s wails rose from beneath her hill and sacred well. The docks weren’t going to survive this. They’d have to rebuild. Kirsty held her ground and stared down the storm that roiled far out at sea. Somewhere out there below the water deities strove and fought. Plates shifted sooner and more violently than they would have. It was a shame that the

After Class

The non-fiction section of the library was in terrible shape. The books had been filed by author, not topic, and the little stickers on the sides were so faded, I couldn’t even read every other one. It took me nearly an hour to hunt down a stack of civil war books for my history project. As I made my way to go check them out, I suddenly noticed how quiet the library was. I walked up to the front desk and leaned over the counter. “Is anyone there?” I whispered. There was no response. I glanced around. The computers were all shut down and there was not a librarian in sight. “You’ve got to be kidding me.” I said. Then I heard a rattling noise and low groan. “Uh, excuse me?” I said. The sounds abruptly stopped. I got a funny feeling in my gut. I took a step toward where the sounds had come from, then the library doors swung open. In came the janitor. “What are you doing here, kid?” “I guess they missed me when they locked up for the night.” I said awkwardly. “Well, you had better get out

Something worth checking out: Figurosity and figurosity

Hi everyone! I'm a writer, specializing on science fiction fanfictions (I do write original sci-fi and fantasy and other stories as well, though). Since I plan to become an author in the future, I write fanfics and other stuff to improve my skills. I'm also one of those people who join Flash Fiction Month yearly; you can see my FFM stories in my gallery. I'm plnning to release my yearly flash fictions as collections at some point, although no idea when I manage to get it done. I appreciate constructive critiques, so they're very welcome!

I also sometimes do some digital fanart, rarely traditional art, mostly Sketches in the Sketchbook. I'm not that good at drawing, although I'm improving and learning. I do my best to make pictures realistic but they can come out as cartoon-like for now. Well, you have to start somewhere before you improve.

"We can stop hurting each other, because we believe in something different than the person standing next to us. The one thing that can't be defeated is love, right? You can conquer hate by ignoring it. You can destroy it by loving the person next to you."

-Chester Bennington, July 6th, Birmingham, England (last live show)

"Peace over anger.

Honor over hate.

Strength over fear."
