Ride

I ruffle my little sister Alex’s hair as I head into the main part of the kitchen, grabbing a piece of toast my mom already made before slicing an avocado and placing it on top with salt and pepper. I sit down at the table with my siblings, my brothers face immediately contorting with disgust.…

Coat

I walk beside her, our gloved hands intertwined as we brace the cold. I feel her begin to shiver, immediately jumping into classic boyfriend mode as I slip off one of my jackets. “Here…” I say softly, stopping her and wrapping the coat around her shoulders. “Don’t want you getting sick.” She laughs softly, leaning…

Dark

My soup is the darkness that consumes the world. It is mysterious in its nature. Scary in it’s contents.  People think it is just regular. That the meat is just pork or steak. But little do they know. Whenever our crew kills of someone I take care of the body. They think I just burn…

I continued to dig into the earth’s crust, shovel bent from the force as I bang into chunks of rock. As the sun began to set so did my hopes, thinking in the back of my mind that I might have followed the map incorrectly. But alas! I hit something that isn’t rock but wood,…

Tread lightly dear traveller You might not like what you find Becoming a batteler  In order to survive The roads will be rough And full of tall tasks But you can be tough For the treasures you will bask Once you have succeeded  You can finally rest Nothing shall be repeated Because you have become…

Sling

“Attack!” I look up right as mud hits me square in the face, the chunks falling onto my shirt. I let out a gasp, quickly swiping it out of my eyes as my friend winds up for another shot. “Not fair! We were supposed to do a countdown!” I yell, ducking behind my fort. “That’s…
