Semni fled, the smoke and screams to her back. Then, she heard a yell in Geothoi, from one plunderer to another. The two words spoken that she understood meant girl and away. She broke into a sprint. The two men, on horseback, moved swiftly in her pursuit. She was soon to be overtaken. Through gasping b...

The frigid November air dissipated as I stepped into my makeshift cottage. I took off my cloak. It was the only spot of color in the bare, bleak room. Looking around, I sighed. Everything that had happened in the past few years had finally caught up with me. Throughout history, it has always been the same....

The boy sat cross-legged on an ornate pillow, surrounded in glass ornaments. To his left was an empty pillow. His mother was not able to attend. She was absent on illness, as she always was. The second pillow over sat the boy's eyeless father, Keiphi, a king. He was silent, listening with his most perfect...

People are always watching me. It seems like they never stop. I am always forced to sit there and do nothing as they stare. Sometimes they laugh, sometimes they cry. They even get upset and yell or even scream. I wait for them to all leave, and then I am finally able to go to sleep. But, they just come...

An eager audience applauds my entrance. I sit down on the old creaky bench directly in front of her. The crowd expects to hear a piece that I have rehearsed over and over (which I have), but what they don’t know, is that they will simply be watching me have a conversation with...

The alarm blared and plucked me out of dreamland. It’s mid-winter, still dark, and my feet are twin blocks of ice, hanging off my bed in the chilly apartment. I pick up my device and silence the alarm. The screen flashes a wash of electric color; I blink and roll onto my side, tucking my feet under...

“Haldibairn!!” he yells at me. That stupid, racist fool. He is the reason we were in this mess, and now, at the first sign of death, he had abandoned all hope. Not only that; he wanted me to come with him. Where to, I’ve no idea, only away. Away from this dark ugly place, where friends turn...

They will never love you again. They never loved you in the first place. Icy hands turned sweaty and slippery lace themselves around my neck, constricting my breathing. They don’t want you. Who would ever want you? I close my eyes - shutting out the voices. Every fiber within me wanting escape. I...

The sun streamed brightly through the large window; the weather obviously belying the true horror of the situation. Someone had commited a crime, and they were going to pay. For over six months now, I had saved every nickel and dime, until I finally had enough to buy The Car. A red 458 Italia Ferrari,...

My eyes are drawn to the lights from a distance, as if I were walking through a pitch-black forest and directed by a full moon. The brightness draws rows and rows of cars toward it, all of us anticipating something exciting and unexpected. I roll down my window. There is a biting chill in the air....

I’m a time traveler. But not in the normal way you think of time travelers; no. My time travelling has limits. I only have a few hours to spend in the other time period I enter. I can hardly ever return back to previous adventures. And I don’t choose where I go. Mostly I don’t remember where...
