A man was in the rain in front of my house.
I never saw him in my neighborhood, so I called out to him.
“How can I help you, sir?”
He looked up at me, and I saw his face.
It had been covered with a cloth from the mouth down, and his head was irregularly shaped.
His eyes were dull, shaped similarly to a moon.
Except, of course, the moon had no light on it, and was significantly darker.
I felt a...
It’s for the family, he says.
All the lying about previous jobs.
All the cover ups about references.
It’s just a lie, he says.
Who gets hurt by this?
I’ll provide for my family.
I’ll do the job.
I’ll keep everything a secret.
I am told to say nothing of what I saw here today,
the atrocities committed at work.
All the enslaved members of the rusty cogs of employment,
treated like animal feces...
A man becomes a monster once he’s stopped recognizing his faults.
A man becomes a monster when he wishes others harm.
A man becomes a monster when he can’t face his reflection.
A man becomes a monster when he stops feeling anything at all.
I have felt much,

So I ask, one final time,
When does a man become a monst...
All I could think of was the suffocating feeling of my soaking wet hair wrapped around my own neck. Nevermind that each drop of salt water flung into my face felt like a frigid bullet, blurring my vision and numbing my cheeks. And nevermind that not only were we sailing through a storm so violent the noon sky went black, but we were also in the midst of a titan: the Kraken.
The screams of men ar...
Jaspers body trembled as he eyed his surrondings trying to act as non suspicious as possible, he could feel the burning glare and sadastic smile of his captor; which just happen to be a full on psycho that was minutes away from ending his life. Which isn’t that big of a deal, was it? Jasper thought to himself.
Grey stormy eyes searched the full dirty basment once more when a chilling realizati...
“Oh, no, no, no, no,” the girl crooned, rocking violently as she ran her hands through her scraggly hair. She was curled in the corner of the dark room, as filthy as the dirt floor. They had unchained her over twenty-four hours ago, but she didn’t move outside of the five foot radius she had become accustomed to. She continued to mumble and was restless in her fidgeting.
“Why, Aiden, why did you ...
They say don’t make your work your life, but Erin had always existed to write. From the morning to night, they would sit at their computer and type away. First, creative stories. Then, non-fiction, documentary-type stuff. Now, they had made a career for themselves in journalism. Nowadays, the hot topics were always about exposing corrupt people, politicians, usually, and when they wrote about Nash...
Carl drove along the brightly lit streets, and saw a girl, standinng alone in a dark alleyway. No, it wasn’t a girl. It was a monster. The monster that haunted Carl’s dreams ever since he had seen it 10 years ago, right after his mother died.
Now the monster just stared at him. And suddenly, it was no longer a monster, but again a little girl. A tall woman walked over to the monster girl and took...
I stare at the hooded figure in front of me. Surprisingly, I am not scared. In fact, I kind of want to laugh. How stupid is this? I mean do people really go out of their way to kill people.
It was Halloween and I’d snuck out of my home in a Joker costume to spend the night with my friends, only to get stuck in a corn maze and now held hostage by some rando who thought it would be amusing to take...
