What I See

Located at the edge of the suburban areas of the hustle and bustle, I hopped out of the train, prepared to take on my new part-time job in the dead of the night. The stars were clouded by the smoke billowed from the heart of the city, the air was filled with the acrylic scent […]

Solitary Loop (Finale)

The alarms blared in the control room, one of the lab men shouted, “This American is trying to overload our systems.” A coffee drop was formed from the last filtration process.

Treachery

Chains shackled against the cold hard concrete, I was bounded yet again as a war crime. Stripped naked, I was blast with the spotlights hanging all around me. PANG! PANG! PANG! The irregular clangs of metal bars were violent, rambling across my ear drum, conjuring the searing pain across my head. Just stop. I had to choose to […]

Vanity

As I applied the glossy red polish on my nails, stroke by stroke, making sure that my fingers were illuminating in polished glow. I walked through my room to my kitchen to pick up my eyeliner, applying lip gloss at the same time by looking through my miniature foldable mirror. Brushing the gloss side to […]
