One Day (3rd Prize, Category 3)

April, 2014
No comments 2036 views

There seems to exist this prevalent belief that every writer and author is somehow obliged to furnish every story, poem and book with some climax or stunning plot twist as a means of piquing a reader’s interest and spurring them further into the words. This will be something of a different breed. I urge that [...]

Knock, knock, knock, knock.
Mommy, please answer me.
Knock, knock, knock.
Mommy, please answer.
Knock, knock.
Mommy, please.
Knock.
Mommy.
I go to her door every morning of every day. She never answers, not anymore. Not if I’m hungry, not if I’m screaming, not even if the house was on fire. I don’t think she [...]

A man lay spread eagled on the pavement with fragments of glass surrounding his corpse. Up above, the window on the thirty ninth floor was broken. The police cleared a perimeter, as journalists and reporters gathered around the body like a group of vultures ready to feast upon the dead. Snow started falling, and a [...]

Two hours, twenty-nine minutes, fifty-eight seconds.
Two hours, twenty-nine minutes, fifty-nine seconds.
Two hours, thirty minutes.
Someone is very late. They were meant to be here a long time ago. Who was it again? You can’t remember.
You take a furtive look around the waiting room. It’s small, with two oak doors leading off it; one directly in [...]

The Deck (3rd Prize, Category 4)

The dawn broke. The sun warmed my back, my fingers ached, my arm twitched with effort, the soles of my feet ground against the pavement. I stood as the sun rose. I held my head level and my eyes blank void of emotion. There was only one reason why I wouldn’t go. Pride. What a [...]

It was an ordinary Wednesday morning.
Seconds before the alarm went off, I was shaken awake by the white glow of morning fog pouring into my room. I blinked away the brightness as I checked the time through my swollen eyelids. 7:29 a.m.
With my eyes half-shut and my mind half-conscious, I watched the minute [...]

“How much further do we have to go?” Noah asked as they reached the top of the mountain.
“We’re almost there,” his brother coaxed.
It was a foggy day in October. There was a whiff of gunpowder in the suffocating air, and the brothers gave a small shiver under the sun, that nearly invisible blob of feeble [...]

The Peony’s Promise (2nd Prize, Category 4)

April, 2014
No comments 2548 views

Something serious must have happened for my father to take me out of boarding school and to come do it personally. Otherwise, he would have sent a servant. 
All through the carriage ride home, questions burn on my tongue, but I don’t say a word; I know that Father will tell me when he feels that [...]

The old letters were a blast from the past. She laid them out, in their crinkled glory, before picking up the first one.
Her hands shook.

Dear Mary,
Well, basic training has just gone on for a few days, and I can tell you that I can feel it [...]

One day, man has done it. He has finally found a way to make time palpable. Now, time is a physical dimension, a tangible collection that is kept locked up in the great Time Vault. Time is fickle, constantly shifting and changing color, but no matter how it changes, each piece of time always represents [...]
