Paint Fumes

“Wow, it really is strong in here,” I commented as my lungs filled with the acrid stench of wet paint; I’d only been in the room for a handful of minutes and already there was a catch in my throat. I admired the painting Evie had been working on last time I visited and attempted […]

Simple Selfishness

“Okay, look, you all keep telling me that every single action he took was purely selfish. But he wasn’t, isn’t a selfish person,” I declared emphatically, ripping open the buttons on my jacket. Sucking in a breath that burned in my raw throat, I added, “Maybe the whole obsession with life-extending medicine was born because […]

23/08/21

I’d been sneaking around a large compound of buildings with lights glowing through cloth and wood barricades for nearly an hour when I heard a sound. It was like breaking bones; a twig shattered underfoot. It was a dissimilar sound to that of glass crunching as I shifted my weight to my front foot. Breathing […]

It, Itself and I – Part 1

Sleeping in the back of her father’s truck in the college parking lot was not how she expected things to go. Let alone with classes failing and impossible expectations thrusted upon her shoulders. A few moments of shut eye in a parking lot is perhaps not the biggest loss.  The ratty carpet of the folded […]

Camp Nano – Short Story #5

Love *For Camp Nanowrimo this April, I plan on writing 10 short stories that fall into different genres & elicit different emotions.

Camp Nano – Short Story #4

Lost *For Camp Nanowrimo this April, I plan on writing 10 short stories that fall into different genres & elicit different emotions.

Camp Nano – Short Story #3

Joy *For Camp Nanowrimo this April, I plan on writing 10 short stories that fall into different genres & elicit different emotions.

Insane World – Part 1

            “I don’t know what you mean but-” I shouted at Benjamin as the world went momentarily black and I found myself somewhere that definitely wasn’t a busy street in eastern Vancouver. Glancing around at an enormous industrial warehouse, I gasped, “Where the hell am I?” I was hanging on to the edge of a […]

Invisibility

            The dorm was quiet when I woke up; not a soul seemed to be awake, which was bullshit because there were always people up at every time of the night. Sitting up, I checked the clock and groaned when three-am shone through my eyeballs. With a yawn, I leaned back and stared up at […]

Best Piece of Advice

            The best piece of advice I can, personally, give anyone is this: when the apocalypse comes, find people who know how to meet their basic needs and side with them.             Three weeks after the fall of the human civilization, I was doing alright. I’d joined a group of hunters and farmers, which seemed […]

It, Itself and I – Prologue

She walked this path many times before to not get lost. So when the pathway swerved to a trail not yet crossed before she had nearly frozen in place. Her breath baited on her lips against the frosted February air. Fangs of cold and snap against her throat as she shivered against it’s touch. The […]

Angela Carmine

            “Today, we celebrate the life of Angela Carmine,” stated the priest at the pulpit, reading my name from a paper. I sat, or hovered or whatever you want to call it, in the back row as half a dozen people sniffed and cleared their throats near the front of the church. Glancing down at […]

Dinner With the Duchess

            “You think you’re so cool,” I muttered as the man sat down at the head of the table, his sunglasses hanging from his open collar. When we’d met outside, on a perfectly cloudy day, he’d been wearing them to look cool.             Chuckling, he winked and retorted, “Actually, I am so cool.” He put […]
