Cat Magic

Millie waited by the door, her silky black pelt fluffed with anticipation. She could hear the patering of little footsteps and ringing laughter floating down the hallway. She whisked her tail impatiently. This was her favorite night of the year, Halloween was her human's word for it, for this was the night that she would... Continue Reading →

Passing Through

Richard Reese and Delilah Sutton could not have been more optimistic about purchasing the storage unit. It hadn’t been touched in fifteen years and happened to be the cheapest on the lot.

Faces Behind Masks

Don't move. Don't speak. Don't breathe. They are here. They are watching. They want me. They want you. They are hungry. Who? Who are they? Who am I? Who are you?

No Such Thing As Gennies

The Devil In A Box

Thump….inhale….thump….exhale…..thump...inhale….thump….exhale… I am alone in this room. My breath and my heartbeat my only companions. The walls are barren, The floor smooth and dull, The door a solid slab of concrete. Whoever designed this place must be a real fun person, I bet this person is named something like John and his face is etched... Continue Reading →

He Has No Eyes

The child watched the ice cream truck As it pulled to a stop on his block. High and jovial music rang from it's speakers on top. No other children came running. It was him alone.
