Chloe swung open the door to her aunt’s cafe for the last time. She was still in shock at her mother’s announcement that they were moving. Chloe’s mother wasn’t coping with the death of Chloe’s father very well, and felt the family needed a change of scenery. Chloe knew that her mother ...

Volcano Season

Volcano Season

Renee Milligan, Assistant Fluco Beat Editor

November 10, 2016

Dripping orange leaves overflow cracked clay pots fertilized by embers, planted in ash. Skies run with color. Thorns paint gashes in clouds whose white forms bleed, smearing red in hasty retreat past creeping vines of gray and black. Liquid light blooms. Red and yellow florets sparkle. Growing,...

Tossing and turning and it's 2:17 AM I can't sleep with sheets twisted around my limbs stretching and grasping in the dark at the dark and it's too hot this pillow under my head I turn it over 27 times in an effort to find the cold side but it's no good one foot hanging out over the edge of the...

Now, I'm sure we've all heard of the classic fairytale, “The Princess and the Pea,” right? Well, no one knows the true story, because no one cares enough to hear how I, the pea, felt about this whole ordeal. I remember the night like it was yesterday; it was after all, the most traumatic experience...

The trees swayed in the light breezes.  The grass was a beautiful, bright green color and there was not a cloud to be seen in the blue sky.  The flowers sprayed their aromas throughout the park.  Birds chirped their melodies and the squirrels scurried up to their homes, eager to munch on their acorn...

Because I Can

Because I Can

I hated her.  She was my arch nemesis.  I personally didn't know her, but I did know that she was evil! It was one day in Pre-K that I declared her evil.  Back then, I wasn't the cutest kid in the patch.  I had glasses two sizes too big on my face, bushy brows, and way-too-long eyelashes.  I...

"So what you're saying is that some man, just some man, did that to your mother?" the prosecutor slid a picture in front of me and jutted her long, talon-like finger at it, but I quickly pushed it away. "Don't make me look at that please," tears and makeup covered my cheeks but it seemed as thought...

He’d been lying here for hours, Willing his unwilling eyes to shut, To drown out the light that was Beginning to flood Through his thin curtains Like a tidal wave of agony. He dreaded the sun, Dreaded the moment that His alarm clock would inevitably ring And he would have to leave The sweet...

Forget-Me-Not

Forget-Me-Not

Hannah Jones, FCHS Collaborator

August 27, 2015

I am a forget-me-not among roses Delicate but thorny Flashy but frail They tower above me I am a forget-me-not among roses Small but strong Quiet but magnificent Thriving and spreading in my own way I am a forget-me-not among roses And I am quietly powerful
