I sit on the edge of my bed, gazing out the open window. It’s still dark outside, but soon the sun will rise from the depths, and with it, my journey will begin. I look around the room, this treasure trove of memories. Should I feel sad about leaving it all behind? Maybe, but I … Continue reading Call To Adventure

Once upon a time, there was a forest, oh so green. Sparkling, yes, almost glowing with life. But one awful day, a shadow loomed the woods, painting the forest in hues of death. Shh, here he comes. See how he slumps his back, notice how beads of ice trail his white cheeks. That’s the face … Continue reading The Miserable King of Ice

And following that grinding sound comes a loud yawn from the bed. “Where are you going?” asks the love of my life, in a worried, almost desperate tone. At hearing the sadness in her voice, I wince. Oh, how I want … Continue reading For Love’s Sake
The man without a name stands tall amidst pillars of stone, pondering times long forgotten. Reminiscing times when he was more than an empty husk. Looking back at what was, he sees the faint silhouettes of people in his past, moving ‘neath his eyelids. He calls out to them, over and over again in a … Continue reading The Man Without a Name

Creak, says the door, despite my attempt to open it smoothly. Sweat floods my cheeks and a sense of heaviness forms in my gut, but I do my best to press it down, for I cannot afford to let the fear win. I would pay the ultimate price for such a mistake.
