Dreams of You

Dreams of You

In my nightmare, I see my grandma standing there. I’m always in utter confusion because she never speaks, moves, or even blinks.  When I was younger, she was the most talkative and beautiful woman...

Hope

Hope

Olivia Nunez , Special Contributor November 24, 2022

As I continued to walk, tears started rolling down my face. The ground was black, burnt up, and crisp crunched like a fallen leaf in Fall.  This was once a lush meadow covered in a thin blanket of gorgeous...

Rotten Love

Rotten Love

Vee Forshay , Special Contributor November 9, 2022

My husband has been acting strange lately.  He’s been staying out way longer than he should; he comes home smelling like fresh cologne, and he refuses to kiss me, or give me any affection for that...

There was something moving. Another spider.

Teresa went to the bathroom to fetch some toilet paper and crushed the second spider. She then wondered if there were more lurking around. Teresa wasn’t fond of dealing with the spiders, but it gave her something to do.

“People think you need to have nice things and a fancy job to be happy in life. Well, guess what? They’re wrong. I live my life doing what I want and seeing things that not everyone else gets to see, and I do it by doing what I love. That’s freedom.”

Road to Success

Sophie South-Miner, Special Contributor March 9, 2022

Zach watched the clock tick with a hand on his face and an elbow on his desk as he waited for the bell to ring. It was a conundrum, he was absolutely bored in his classes, but he hoped they would stretch...

We shuffled into a little room, where others already sat. A girl maybe 15, my brother’s age. A boy my age, eyes suspicious. A weary mother cradling a baby. All of us were uneasy, and the tension was as thick and heavy. Like the mud around us.

Cold Feet

Cold Feet

Madeline Kovanda April 29, 2021

The wind howled as early morning began. The winter season had no thoughts of mercy and the snow continued to fall without stop for the second day in a row. “It’s about time you showed up!” Howard...

La Motivación

Madeline Kovanda March 23, 2021

The night was cool and empty. I sat in the parking lot, sitting with my CD player blaring music. The stale air that stayed locked in the car was freed into the cool air of the night. I watched the gas...

How Can She Still Get Under My Skin?

Maddie Chambers March 18, 2021

The bell rings overhead, signaling the end of our class period. I gather my things and walk out from the English classroom towards the lunch room, where I’m supposed to be meeting Jayden, my boyfriend....

“It’s about time you showed up.” Sydney closed the apartment door behind her to find her roommate Faith standing in the kitchen leaning against the counter, arms crossed and tapping a foot on the...

All Because of a Firefly

All Because of a Firefly

Joelle Richard February 11, 2021

“Come on, come on.” I whisper to myself anxiously. “Where are you at?” A minute passes and then a flicker of light appears rising out of the grass. It was like a drop of the sun had risen up with...

You Showed Me How to Love

Mollie Hervey January 15, 2021

The rain pummels down on the roof. I am sitting alone on the porch listening to the cars splash across the slick road in the distance. The refreshing smell of the rainclouds relaxes me coupled with the...
