I'm Here (From the Archives)

Fey pressed her hand up against the cold plastic of the ship’s window. Outside, the stars hung in the blackness of space, quietly glistening in the otherwise lifeless vacuum. "Do you think it’s out there? Earth?” Fey asked her husband, Kegro. “I hope so,” Kegro said, as he wrapped his arms around Fey, his hands… Continue reading I'm Here (From the Archives)

Burning Red (From the Archives)

Suzza sat on her bed, surrounded by the ripped pieces of her letters. Each one had contained the years of heartache and love that she had poured into her relationship with Netr. Before she had joined the Tombhunters, before when he had promised that she was his only and that she had his heart. And… Continue reading Burning Red (From the Archives)

Bluff (From the Archives)

"Don't do it," the Captain warned.  Kenl smirked. What did the Captain know about how to use these jewels? Nothing. He thought they were just treasure to be plundered like anything else.  But Kenl knew. She knew the truth.  "Wat?" she spat back, purposefully dropping her home accent into her voice. She could see the… Continue reading Bluff (From the Archives)

Clues (From the Archives)

“Why,” Cassie groaned as she put her head on her desk. The system had logged her out again and she needed to get to the fingerprint database to cross reference the results from forensics. “What?” Terry poked his head above his cubicle, his glasses sitting askew on his nose. No one would even guess he… Continue reading Clues (From the Archives)

Confrontation (From the Archives)

“FIGHT ME!” Tranegath roared at Hulun. Hulun struggled, his head still ringing from the previous blow. It would not be long before the guards came to separate them, but this was his chance to do some real damage to the bully of the prison. Hulun coughed, trying to distract Tranegath as he reached down to… Continue reading Confrontation (From the Archives)

Awake (100 Words)

“Wake up,” Christie whispered in Garet’s ear. He groaned, rolling over. In his half asleep state, he didn’t register the urgency in Christie’s voice. “Wake, up,” Christie said, punching Garet’s arm, “it’s the Alarm.” Garet woke up fully. The Alarm shouldn’t be going off. The Alarm wouldn’t sound unless there was something very, very wrong.… Continue reading Awake (100 Words)

Kind – (From the Archives)

Sometimes it's easier to be harsh than it is kind.  Kindness takes self reflection. A pause before you respond. It takes selflessness to be kind. To choose a better path even if your feels demand another.  But even though it harder, the world deserves more kindness in it.  So try to be kind. First posted… Continue reading Kind – (From the Archives)

Volume – (From the Archives)

Loudness deafens even the most difficult of emotions. You drown it. You hold it down underneath the waves of noise and you hold it whilst it struggles for air. Whilst it fights to be heard. You turn the music up louder. You hold it down harder. Then the emotion dies, it gives up. You turn… Continue reading Volume – (From the Archives)

Idealism – (From the Archives)

It’s not what happened, or who they were, or what they did. You remember the best bits because you want to. You want to get to the good bits, you ignore the bad, you ignore the times when you felt rubbish. You almost wonder, why did I cut them out of my life? You know… Continue reading Idealism – (From the Archives)

Composure – (From the Archives)

Tegan tried to hold the tears in as she tapped away on her screen. She could feel her cheeks flush and the humiliation rising. “Hey, Tegan,” Jasmine asked, “how’s that project going?” “Fine,” Tegan croaked. She had to hold her composure. She couldn’t show it was too much. She couldn’t. First posted in 2019. || Image Credit:… Continue reading Composure – (From the Archives)
