Indistinguishable

He was only a young calf when he first saw them. Tall, glorious and majestic. His mother had left, and he was alone. He was entranced. He knew of them; no one didn’t. It was a man, with graying hair and a twinkle in his wizened eyes. Next to him was a girl with the

Heartworm

They were there. They may had faded away long ago, but they were always watching. The winter chill seeped through my bones despite the thick layers I wore, and my surroundings were desolate. Silent, serene. The files were nestled within my coat, and the sound of the judge’s hammer rang in my ears. “Death penalty.”

Truly Alone

It’s so beautiful. The waves lap gently on the sandy shore. My toes curl. Wet sand squelches through the gaps between my toes. I frown. It’s uncomfortable. A wave glides gently over my feet washing away the sand. The furrow in my brow softens, but it is not completely lifted. Why am I like this?

Cliff Girl

There once lived a girl named Monica. She loved to stand on the edge of the cliff to keep calm or she would turn into an evil beast. No one could calm her down but her.  One day she was minding her own beeswax when somebody pushed her off of the cliff, but she had

Solitary

Pounding droplets beat on the car’s roof, ringing in the silence. Her almond brown eyes traced rain streaking on the glass. In the backseat, she was almost comfortable, though a bit too tall to fit. So, she lay sideways, humming faintly. She loved humming- as if to fill a void where people should’ve been. The girl

Monster

I am the last. I, Emlyn Parks, am the last person here. I was never meant to be; I was meant to leave, with the others. This part of me – the heart of my pain and loss – was meant to die. It should never have survived. I will not live long anyway. It

The Sunshine

The First Fleet, 16 May 1787 My dear mother, I will never forget the day Lilly and I left your body on the bed and set sail for Australia. I felt as if I was betraying you, trading you for a better life, fleeing from the home we had before the Russians invaded – even

A Walk in the Woods

Usually, a walk in the woods takes about half an hour at most. But today, the thirty minutes turn into an hour. Then two hours. Then two and a half. And then, you’re walking among an unfamiliar batch of trees. But you’re not worried, even though most people would be. You’ve made friends with the

Free

The girl lifted her head to look at the mountain towering before her, the light drizzle caressing her face as she inhaled the crisp cool air. Soon, she would be free. Free and flying like a bird, and there was no turning back. Nobody could stop her now. *** Everyday, the girl would return to

The Edge

I tread carefully over the gravel and debris that covers the cliff top. As I reach the edge I can feel my backpack becoming heavier and heavier. Like my thoughts it’s weighing me down. I let it go. The fluorescent thing falls to the ground and my toes curl in my heavy boots. I clench

Home

Standing on a flat cliff in the middle of the night in the fog sounded scary, but it was more…magical. I could see the water below and the moon seemed to cast shadows, pictures of people dancing, and animals bounding towards an unseen bone. The trees stood still, no wind to make them move. The

The Mysterious Boat

I love living by the shores, for I can go to the beach anytime I want. Every time I visit the shorelines my mind magically transports to a state of quietude. It was a tiring day at school. I finished my lunch quickly and headed to the beach. “Come back soon, we are going out

Big blue whale in an ocean too small

My childhood was spent with my parents and siblings in this tiny dot on our world map called Sitka, Alaska. I will have to admit that I painfully miss the freezing temperatures, the snowy landscapes, our small but warm red brick house and our chubby ginger cat named Honey. I never felt so attached to

The Tree Tale

Hi, I am a Chestnut tree. For many decades, I have been standing here. I have witnessed many changes around me, but what has not changed is the way we have been caring about others. I still remember the words of the biology teacher at the school, “Children! You just cannot imagine how much potential

Grandma and Her Secrets

Silence. I tapped my fingers on the countr. It was a very old make: barely floating above the ground. Shifting on my seat, I cleared my throat, breaking my Grandma from her stare. Why was she so entranced by this one? “Sorry Pips, I didn’t mean to stare that long,” she said. But she still

Orca’s Adventure

My parents said I first saw daylight (more like ocean light) in an ocean near the Arctic. Excuse me as I’m not very familiar with the ocean names, you, humans call it. That’s all I ever heard them say but since then it has been quite an adventure. I am an Orca but I wouldn’t
