Alice Becket sat in the corner of the Ram Street Deli, papers and coats sprawled across the red checkered table. She waited a good five minutes before James came back with two sandwiches in hand.
They were grotesque looking things, two moist breads slathered in some white sauce and stuffed with unidentifiable meats and vegetables. Still, when offered she took it.
She wondered what the co...
They they are different
But that doesn’t make them bad
They may not look like the average clone
They were made different a “mistake”
The leader is an experienced hunter trained to fight yet still is learning to be a father figure
The Tech may bore you with protocols and regulations but when the ship goes down
He fixes it

I secured the old bus we’ve decided to take shelter in for probably the fifth time tonight. It’s been hours since Cornella fainted. I was preparing another rag with cold water when Amie yelled for me.
“Big brother! Big brother! Sissy’s awake!”
I rushed to the back of the bus where I carried my sister. It seemed like the safest spot. Right next to the back door; our escape route. Sure enough, Corne...
Ones pain from another’s is what we tend too compare in a moment of weakness. We each as a person have felt this terrible overwhelming feeling of not being able too go on a time when we have felt weak wanting too hide away from the viscous cycle of life.

This was the worst pain I had, and will likely ever, experience in my entire existence. I had never been so close to giving up, and yet still managed to keep on fighting. My body was burned and bloodied, my shoulders were stiff, and any time I moved a blinding, white pain, like lightening shot through my body, paralyzing me in place. How did they do it? How did he keep going?
My thoughts flashe...
I wake up to the sound of cars and the smell of gasoline. Attempting to stand up, I bang my head. It only takes 5 seconds for me to realize what’s going on. I survived.
I slowly touch the wound on my head which has managed to stop bleeding excessively, but it still hurts.
I can’t believe I survived. I was sure that I would have died from blood loss but I haven’t. They must think that I’m dead a...
The whip cracks into my back for the fifth time, my teeth sinking into my lip, drawing blood. I hear a scream not my own, but Wyatt’s. He was crying at my pain. Then I realized that this was his witchy, old, mothers plan the whole time. Use me to get to him, I’m the only thing he cares about now, I’m her new weapon. I had never been so close to giving up, and yet still managed to keep on fighting....

All I’ve ever needed was to be seen. To be recognised as the person I am. To have my name used in sentences, my pronouns used to refer to me. I just wanted to exist like everyone else. No one tells you how difficult that can be. When I realised that some people just didn’t want me to exist I thought long and hard about just giving up and presenting as who they wanted me to be. I had never been so ...
