The Spring storms hammered the side of the house. Gwen could hear them repeatedly slamming into the habi-house’s side, making the whole construction shake as it did so.

Fear (100 Words)

The feeling was not of anger or of hatred. It was the bone sinking, gut wrenching quiet whisper of doubt.  It was the thoughts Felicity didn't even know where there until Gerrard had pointed them out. Her snappiness.

Before (A Teacup Story)

“It was all so good,” Tristan sighed, into his drink “before you lot got involved.” The bodies didn’t talk back.

The Otherworlds (A Teacup Story)

Fyerik groaned, holding her head in her hands as she threw up into the bucket again. “Do I really have to try again?” she groaned, sipping the fruit tea that Hyacken had put next to her bedside table.

Slide (100 Words)

It’s not a breaking of a bond, but more a loosening. You see it, at first. The distance that has grown between you. Not from hatred, or any passionate emotion if you where honest.
