The earth is gone, they say... there is nothing left. The scientists said this would happen. We kept things the same, we refused to change. In history class, we learn about animals and glaciers. We wear masks that teach us to breathe CO2. Dinosaurs never existed; there is no proof. Beaches are prohib...

“Dianne.” His voice sent a sharp prick up my spine, but somehow it felt right. “Father.” Hearing his voice lit my heart on fire, like the revival of a flame that had been smoldering for years. We stood there for a few moments, the door slowly creaking back and forth on its hinges...

“Oh my goodness Jade!” said Tooki. “You are a genius! This is the most amazing thing I have ever seen!” I blushed in pride and embarrassment. I looked at my creation and I did feel like this was a piece that deserved to be called amazing. But me being a genius well... I d...

The full moon lights the walkway to my home as I quietly but quickly make my way to the front door. All the lights are off, which is normal enough in my house at midnight, but something doesn’t quite feel right. Or maybe it’s just the full moon in the sky? I’m a rather superstitious person. I open the door, and step inside. The moonlight does not seep through the thick curtains, and in the pitch blackness, I see nothing. I flip the switch and pull off my shoes, giving my tired feet a break. Then I notice the person standing in the doorway between the living room and the dining room. I jump and frown. How did he get there? Who let him in?

“Why do you fear the stars?” my best friend asked with an interested smile. We sat on my favorite hill looking at the night sky. It was a little cold. I looked her in the face and asked, “Why do you ask?” She responded, “I see you come to this hill often and look in the sky with fear in your...

I get this warm and fuzzy feeling when he looks at me. It's almost like he can read my mind and his eyes are responding to that constant question in the back of my head. Anytime he says my name my stomach seems to disappear, overcome by my heart taking up every inch inside of me. I love shadows aro...

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...

Always Watching Me

Always Watching Me

Alona C. Hojnacke, Guest Writer

November 21, 2017

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...
