She waited by the side of the road. Umbrella in hand, water dripping all around her feet. The New York lights were blurred by the storm, almost like some sort of post-apocalyptic world. Maybe she could pretend that she was in Tokyo. A cab came by. Those yellow cars still running late into the Tuesday … Continue reading Short Story: Night Life
He hated doing all the grunt work. He slouched down onto the large wooden create, his heavy frame causing it to creak. This was boring. All he had to do was guard a stock exchange. Takumi glanced down at his arm. His full-body gear was covering all the tattoos. He was decorated like everyone else … Continue reading SHORT STORY EXCERPT: NIGHT WATCH
I was cleaning out my cupboard and found an about year old notebook in it. I flicked through it and found this piece of trash that I wrote for a writing task that we were given 15 minutes to do in class.

It slightly confuses me, I don’t know what genre or format of anything about what this is … Continue reading A HUMAN: WHAT… IS THIS?

It was fun. If there was … Continue reading SHORT STORY: A DIFFERENT TYPE OF SUFFERING
This is the first little story I’m sharing here! It’s terrible, but I’ll get better. Hopefully. She sneezes. Again. Cursing her allergies Mel fights on, duster at the ready. - “I thought we had a maid for this sort of shit,” she thinks, remembering her parents lecture earlier about her being more responsible - whatever … Continue reading SHORT STORY: DUST
