A Beautiful Lie

A Beautiful Lie

Amy Glowatch, FCHS Collaborator

March 1, 2018

A beautiful lie A beautiful deception A beautiful disaster   A beautiful lie Grown from the hurtful truth Made to protect, not harm you   A beautiful deception Plotted by the ones who care Made to save you from the cruel world   A beautiful disaste...

The Calm and the Storm

The Calm and the Storm

Aubreanna Gray, FCHS Journalist

February 23, 2018

She is everything the coursing water is--soft, yet sharp, strong and gentle, calm and rushing all at once. She closes her eyes to the song that plays and has faith in herself alone. You could call her the calm before the storm and the eye of the hurricane. She overwhelms you with the same m...

Heartache

Heartache

Olivia LaRosa, FCHS Collaborator

February 8, 2018

Holding on with every bit of strength I try to hold back the tears in my eyes Attempting to relieve the pain But the cracks in my heart somehow seep through Causing my walls to burst Causing my emotions to explode   In frantic worry Trying to shut everything down Like ...

This Cannot Be Happening

This Cannot Be Happening

Julie Cianfrani, FCHS Creative Writing Student

January 30, 2018

I awake to the door of my room screeching open like it does every morning. It’s my mother waking me up for school, but something is different. My room looks different. It’s bigger. Everything is so big, and I am not in my bed. Someone else is in my bed, and I’m…on the floor? How on earth did...

Survive

Survive

Grace Walton, FCHS Collaborator

January 16, 2018

I cling to the steel bars of the fire escape, my knuckles turning white from my tight, sweaty grip. As I stare down the five floors to the now fire-engulfed alley, I wonder, how did I get up here? The snarls of the feral, animalistic-humanoids below me snap me from my depressing thoughts. A startled gasp l...

December 12, 2017

Liam Patell had been watched his whole life. Now, however, as he lay alone in excruciating darkness, he realized no one would ever watch him again. He remembered his mother. She was one of those actresses that producers fought to have in their cast. Her name was painted across countless movies, s...

Marred Beauty

Edward Rackley, FCHS Creative Writing Student

November 13, 2017

It happened so fast. The school he had once known had become so distorted and alien within mere minutes. Granted, the walls and floors were the same as they had always been, yet with someone in the school, everything seemed to be on edge. Rogers looked around to see where he was going. Surely someon...

Face in the Crowd: Prologue

Face in the Crowd: Prologue

Gracie Walton, FCHS Journalist

October 19, 2017

That fight. That damn fight. I wish I could go back in time and just tell a teacher and not fight Randy and Josh in the cafeteria. Now, please understand, I’d still protect Sophie in a heartbeat. I just wish my parents hadn’t gotten in the car that day. Now, as I watch both of their closed caskets...

The Month of May

The Month of May

Syerra Milliman, Fluco Beat Editor

May 9, 2017

May had always been a hard month. School was almost over and the search for a fun summer vacation began. Of course, with the end of school came the stress of upcoming finals and planning out the following year’s classes. My friends and I would have study groups every weekend to prepare for our exam...
