That's what happens when you leave a trail in the world. Someone eventually picks up on it, and runs with it. The action of keeping a secret is tiring, so it's not surprising that he leaves breadcrumbs everywhere. The "secret" isn't anything out of the ordinary, but I guess in these times secrets always have a valid reason for being kept. Who am I to quest...
I couldn’t help myself. Riley never told me any secrets. We’ve been best friends for years, yet she remains so secretive. I had to get a better glimpse into her life.
She would be home from work in 10 minutes. I knew her schedule, memorized it after a week. She arrived at her house at 3:40 every day. I would have to be fast.
I searched for the diary. I found it once when I stayed the night at ...

I whisper sweet nothings
You nod as if you understand
This foreign language
I speak through my soul
You hear with your heart
Your smile never fades
As I give you everything
I realize now
I was vulnerable
If you had turned away
I would have broken
My true self was in the open
And you lean in and whisper back sweet nothings
Our foreign language

He’s smiling, like it’s supposed to be funny, but as usual, I don’t understand the joke.
Maybe that’s my problem. I’ve never been good at connecting w...
Lights were flashing throughout the campus which could only mean one thing, this day was gonna be rough. I followed the line of people that were headed for the on campus bomb shelter when I saw her, the girl that had been ghosting me all semester.
“Hey June, looks we are going to the same shelter. Pretty cool, right?”
She was already not impressed.
“Bug off Mike.”
With a roll of her eyes and...
Perched on the thin edge of the staircase, Jay slid open the filthy window to get a better look inside. It took a long minute for his eyes to adjust to the dark. The apartment was small, one end turning around a corner he couldn’t see into. But what he could see did little to put him at ease.
The wall opposite him was lined with crates, ammunition spilling out of them. Thousands of bullets, more...
