Six-Word Stories Vol.2

A while back, I wrote a blog of six-word stories. It seemed to be enjoyable to many people, so I thought I would try another one. If you’re not familiar with it, a six-word story is exactly as it sounds: It tells a complete story in only six words. This requires some very creative thinking.Continue reading “Six-Word Stories Vol.2”

The Contest

We were made for only one purpose: to be eaten.  But first, we will have to wait. We are put on display while we anticipate our death sentence. The ravenous beasts come by and gaze at us hungrily, almost lustfully. They are not allowed to eat us, however, until the bell is rung.  Just asContinue reading “The Contest”

Frozen

They were frozen in fear. They knew that as soon as they were taken from their home, the end would be near. There was some comfort in being one of many, but their numbers, unfortunately, did not garner strength.

She allowed Bryce to reach out and grab a few things as she pointed to them. She smiled as she recalled the first meal she made for EddieContinue reading “Fog”

Temperature Change

The temperature outside was chilly; one might even describe it as frigid. Inside, there was warmth, love. They looked at each other from across the room as Bryce played on the floor with his LEGOS and his mother Veronica sat kneeling on the worn area rug near him. “They’re young for such a short time,”Continue reading “Temperature Change”

Delivery

I am not in favor or against the government; I just work for them. Hell, let’s just put it bluntly—I am owned by them. It’s not all bad, though. It’s my job to deliver tax refunds, among other things, so many people are happy to see me. Of course, it’s also my job to deliverContinue reading “Delivery”
