Outpost-347 (A Teacup Story)

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. The newbies to Outpost-347 were cowering in their bunks. Some were crying, Gwen could hear them. A few had even clustered around the escape pods, desperate to… Continue reading Outpost-347 (A Teacup Story)

Leave me Be (From the Archives)

Vekna wiped her blade clean with a bloodied rag.  The blood sluced off the end of the blade, dripping onto the muddy stone floor. The body of the Corps agent lay at her feet, limbs splayed in an unnatural way. “Oops,” Vekna said, sheathing her sword. The Corps were so inefficient with the people they… Continue reading Leave me Be (From the Archives)

The fortune teller looked down at the coin, the bells laced into his hair tinkling together as he did so. “What brings the Daughter of… Continue reading Flash Fiction – Hidden Future (From the Archives)

Flash Fiction – Ignorance (A Teacup Story)

“What’s the reading again?” Frena asked, peering at her graph. She could barely make out the readings in the light from her headtorch. “445,” Grenac replied, peering through the telescope, “that’s another 445 for the list.” Frena peered at the graph, marking a small x where the 445 line was. The current trend was for… Continue reading Flash Fiction – Ignorance (A Teacup Story)

“Did you really have to kill everyone?” Hainne asked, exasperated. She sat down with a heavy thump next to her twin, who was currently fiddling with the end of her dagger.

Flash Fiction – Shot to the Head (From the Archives)

“Don’t mind if I do,” Phevra said as she stepped over the decimated corpse of the bar owner. Her boots were heavy against the wood floor, echoing through the empty bar and probably to the enhanced ears of the few Afterlifes that were wandering around the town. She pulled a shot glass from under the… Continue reading Flash Fiction – Shot to the Head (From the Archives)

Most people did after spending years in the Elites, it was the only way of coping. “Thanks for pointing that out,” Niin said, kicking an arm out of the way and sitting down… Continue reading Flash Fiction – Aftermath (From the Archives)
