I stare down at myself. Am I dying? I’m just laying there, my eyes are closed, and I need to talk to Maisie. I need her.
I walk around the room, my heart racing in my chest. I can’t die! Not now.
The door creaks open slowly and the doctor steps in. “I’ll be back in a minute.” He says.
At first I think he’s talking to me, but then he leaves, uncovering another person.
I gasp. “Maisie!” I fe...
As I entered the bookstore, I felt safe. Safe from all of the judging and all of the people. This was my refuge, my home. It was late afternoon, when I entered, the sun was setting and the sweet smell of old books was in the air. I walked inside, absorbing my surroundings. The front tinted windows that illuminated the shelves and gave the store a yellow color. The wooden shelves were filled with b...
Bobby Edlin was just like any other teen boy. Smart, funny, handsome. There was only one thing about him that seemed to make others shy away from him. He had an unhealthy infatuation with the dead.
Tonight, he was finally going to do what he always dreamed about. Summon the Grim Reaper. He researched it for months and gathered the supplies he needed to accomplish the task. He laid the 20 candles...
Out of all days I picked today. Valentine’s Day. I’m so stupid. It was late, around 9:20pm. We had been hanging out all afternoon after school just relaxing and binging the Twilight series.
“I need to tell you something.” I spoke softly as I swallowed down the lump in my throat. I kept scrolling through movies looking for Breaking Dawn part 2. She sat next to me looking at me with those ligut bl...
Skin as white as snow
Lips are red as apples
Hair as dark as the night sky
Apple as poisoned as aresnic
Snow fell down a well
Of low self esteem
Romeo and Juliet
Without a prince charming
“Too pale, too much”
She doesnt look like Cinderella
Too many disappointing
Things to her
So she poisoned her apple
Like she did in her tale
The man stands at just below six foot, his posture correct and his expression serious as he patrols the small room from end to end.
His eyes are deep brown, his hair, a darker shade of said brown, is short amd combed across his head.
A maid walks past the door and he walks with measured strides towards it, clears his throat and calls with volume yet calmly. ‘Excuse me, when will Mr. Willis be ar...
My black dress brushes agasint my leg as I walk through the wet grass. I hold my breath, trying to stop my tears from pouring.
The last time I ever wore this dress was a year and three months ago. At Mom’s funeral. Honestly I was hoping I’d never have to wear it again.
I slow down as the big blue tent comes into my view. Everyone’s gathered around it, around . . . Him.
I clutch a piece of pa...
The old bookstore
Had alwayd been my escape
With tall mounds off books
Color coded based on genre
The fantasy section danced
With gremlins and
Romance is where
I found you
It pains me too
Give you away
But I have to
So someone else can pick you
And dance with you
All night long
The old bookstore was always
It was different
It was magical
The bell chimes above the door as Morana walks in. Her pointed tail flicks. The library's owner greets her eagerly.
"Morana! Always a nice face to see! What can I help you find today?"
Morana's tail flicks again, this time with impatience. "Same as yesterday. Please."
The lady nods and clicks a button on her desk. A secret door opens behind her. Morana walks towards it and then inside. This roo...
