Rosalyn had just gotten ready for bed when she received a text from her parents telling her they were going to be out of town on a business trip for ten days. This wasn’t unusual, considering her parents were constantly on business trips, traveling the world, and were only ever home to pack more nec...

Running Across the kitchen and into the dining room. Jumping From one couch cushion to the next. Hugging Your parents after they got you the toy you wanted at Christmas. Crying When the rerun of your favorite childhood show doesn’t play. Screaming When your dad tickles you until you can...

We ran the unmarked path, winding through the dancing evergreens in the heat of summer. The fallen needles rising around us celebrating our passing. The old pines raised their roots and clapped, and the birds sang with the morning sun. The streaks of light passed overhead as we ran faster and faster, ch...

Heaven was meant to reward those that had lived right by the Lord. Once you passed, you would be taken to the golden gate and wait to be escorted into paradise.

The imbecile chattered on and on with a corpse down in the courtyard below my tower. My captor, a fearsome necromancer known as Torial. That's what the world believed, I was sure of it. I had been absolutely flawless in my planning. I left no one alive who knew, not a single one had escaped my curse...

“Bye kids! Have fun and behave for Beth,” Mr. Overton told his children as he exited the house with his wife.

The sky is completely devoid of light, Then a force of nature parts the night. The dark quickly retreats and recedes, With astonishing ferocity and speed. It divides the sky with such eloquence, And strikes the Earth without penitence. The jagged luminous veins pierce and break the sky, Lett...

The resounding roars of war rage through thunder and rain on the fields of Germany, and the clashes of swords and the defeated yelps of the Germanic knights constantly ring out. There are some 500 men on the field, about half with their armor adorned with the black symbol of their cult, and the other ha...
