Chained Parapet #4

Twice the shock, it was no small deal for a boy at post-toddler age. I picked myself up, tiny strides and the sweltering weather, for a few hours, I made it to the nearest house. “John! You poor thing…” Aunt Suzanne ran to me, and I blacked out as I knew I was in safe […]

Chained Parapet #3

There was a wooden sign standing at the end of the bridge, DANGER! KEEP OUT!, clarifying the propensity of getting ourselves in deep soot. We moved from the wooden bridge to mired grounds, our feet started to sink, we ran across, Dave pulled me through as if he knew where the spots that would not drown us in […]

Consumed

I must… take… him… out…! Mustering all the strength in my physique, learning that my enemy was just inches from death. He was partially dead, laying helplessly in front of me. I grabbed the ground for support in order to pull myself to him, an arm after an arm, pulling myself closer for vengeance that consumed […]

Chained Parapet #2

I was young, of toddler age, but could sprint as fast as a young lad would. My brother was hiding in the bushes behind the yard, we were playing hide-and-seek, I was the seeker, and he was to hide.

A.I.

The staleness of the air, the intensity of the atmosphere, everything in here was draining the very soul out of me. “Do you realise you’re one step closer to hell?” a sinister drone by the artificial intelligence. “Look around you. Your comrade is well dead, and you want to take me out single-handedly?” I was […]

Unbarred

Cring… Crank… Cring… Stumbling from the chains that restricted my limbs’ movement. “Move.” The guard nudged me with the butt of his rifle, his deep imperious tone exasperated my feelings. Do I have anymore feelings? “Haha…” I chuckled at the reality, the veracity of my thoughts, “HAhahahhaha” and burst into laughter, bending myself into the cold […]

Scoured

The soothing water cascaded into my shoulders, leaving me with a numb sensation. I sat cross-legged, under the waterfalls of the Amazon, a majestic place where my escape plan was made true, but a mishap happened, my soul was not utterly released from the treachery. I took a deep breath, relishing, cherishing every single ounce […]

Crimson Red

The decrepit colosseum was a grandiose blood show for entertainment in the annals of Rome. I stood singularly in front of this grand design, the architectural, the materials, all were somehow natural, it did not look that of a building, as if it was given birth by the Earth. Dark sombre clouds wreathed the sky as […]
