You accidentally stumbled through a wormhole that led you to another dimension... but you didn't even realise until things started getting very strange.
Begin this sci-fi story in a world that seems familiar, but gradually becomes less and less normal.
June squinted her eyes against the harsh sunlight cutting to her skull like tiny daggers. It had been at least an hour since she’d entered the abandoned house in the side of the hill. She’s been out exploring in the mountains near her home of western Virginia while her mother was out for lunch with a friend.
June lowered her blue eyes and notice a red beetle scurrying away from her bare feet. Sh...
Lately, time feels like it's fleeting. It’s always two steps ahead of you, gaining speed whenever you're close to riding its coattails. You move like a cat through the alleyways, taking a shortcut. You didn’t usually take shortcuts or walk in alleyways like a protagonist waiting to be robbed or murdered, but you were desperate and late. Already, you received two texts from your friend Susan, who w...

It was the little things. The way her face shape just didn’t look quite right in the mirror. or how she found herself feeling quite blank most days. she wasn’t depressed, she just felt like she physically couldn’t generate any personal thoughts or opinions, and the ones she could didn’t feel like her own. there was something about her mother’s face. it looked like her, but there was something very...
My alarm blares into my ears and I jolt upright. I check the time—7:30! School starts at 8:00! I was going to be late. I jumped out of bed. I opened my closet door and pulled out a shirt I don’t remember owning, not being able to wear my usual clothes since I hadn’t bothered to do the laundry since I hit my head after falling into that hole in the ground. I had too much of a headache to be respons...
It was the movement of the clouds that gave the game away. The large open sky was covered in dark, grey, extremely slow moving clouds. In fact it would take several minutes close study for any observer to state with any certainty that they were moving at all. However in on sector of the sky, about 30 meters wide, the clouds moved from there steady crawl and started to zip across the gap at rapid s...
(Another rushed story, sorry!)
It was a regular day
Until the sinkhole struck
Who would’ve known
That I’ve been out of luck
The sinkhole grew larger and larger
Engulfing buildings in its mighty depth
This hole was deep enough
For some to fall to a grisly death
I was unfortunate enough
To fall inside
Due to tripping
And landing on my side
The sinkhole then opened
And when I fell...
Stop chasing me! Huff. Hufff

“Babe…you felt that right?,” yelled Joseph from the hallway as he approached his bedroom.
“The little shaking? Yeah I did but I thought I stood up to fast, what was it.” His girlfriend replied.
“I’m not sure exactly what but you know how there’s that government facility a couple miles away, by that gated off road? I’m guessing it was from there. It happens a lot but I was just asking in case you ...
“We’re so sorry for your loss.”
“She was so young. She had her whole life ahead of her.”
“If there is anything we can do…”
Morris heard the platitudes too many times. He sensed what people were going to say before they opened their mouths. It’s not that he didn’t appreciate the sentiment, he desired time alone. Time to grieve in his own way. Alone with his thoughts, alone with his misery.
