Mack hovered around the bars, snagging drinks not meant for them and walking away. They slinked past married couples, the ones in straight relationships questioning the love for their spouse. They teased and danced with the single people (back on the way to the bar, of course), flirted with the old people to make them … Continue reading The Dance
"Red wire... Blue... No, green wire..." The rain padded against the heavy glass in hard sheets, lightning cracking against the sky, the dark room lighting up, the figure illuminated for a split second. The guard walking past didn't notice, too busy talking into his earpiece, the rain trying to soak through their heavy coat. The … Continue reading The Klutz
The Atonement, the ARK ship, slowly pulled up the Pagoda's side hours later. While the ARK ship was fully stocked for another couple hundred years, the citizens had made it a habit to venture out of their way by a few hundred klicks to other ships drifting in space. The community had gotten into scrimmages with space … Continue reading II.
Thousands of feet pounded against the steel grate floor as everyone rushed towards the escape pods. The Pagoda, an interstellar cruise ship, was going down. The ship had already been going through enough hardship; the cruise ship got "lost" on the way home. The 6 month long trip had been been lost in space for 3 … Continue reading I.
It was the dead of night, the only things alive and moving were the owls and small rodents, playing their games. The sand resettled after the wind storm of the day kicked up old footprints and trails, placing the roads elsewhere.

The tiny cargo ship made for one drifted through space. For 5 years, it floated through the stars and through dust.

The funeral was at the launch pad, the sun shining through heavy … Continue reading The Funeral
The metal bat connected with his arm once more, his limp body falling against the wall. "Listen..." he gasped, looking up at the 4 ski masked covered figures. The bat swung at his stomach, bile and spit exited his mouth. There was a knock on the door, three of the figures looked over, the one … Continue reading Gang Shit
In the middle of the third floor, an explosion went off. Once the smoke cleared, 4 bodies covered from head to toe in black moved into the room from the entrance made by the explosion. Quickly, they opened up their duffel bags, shoved stacks and stacks of cash in them, as well as rare jewelry. … Continue reading Before and After
"It's a shame that this subject didn't last..." "No, but it certainly lasted longer than the others. Maybe our next subject can do better now that we have a good chunk of research under our belts." The sound of metal being dumped into the hole never made the low-level employee who ran the "trash bin" … Continue reading Untitled
Sloane's legs didn't stop, not even the sun started to show through the canopy. Their eyes kept straight ahead, swollen from the hours of crying. They were never told about this feeling, whatever it was. How do you feel nervous from seeing another person you aren't trying to kill? How do you feel tongue-tied when you … Continue reading Shy Hearts, Raging Fires
