• Antonia commented on the post, choose 6 years, 3 months ago

    “You want me to chose?” I asked.
    “Yes.”
    “No,” I said. How could I chose between the lives of my two best friends?
    “If you don’t all three of you shall be slaughtered,” the man said, his lips curling in a sneer as though he found the prospect of three dead teenagers appealing. I caught eyes with Blake and Jemma. Jemma looked terrified, but Blake…[Read more]

  • Antonia commented on the post, zone 6 years, 8 months ago

    I’m in the zone. Distract me and you will regret it. My fingers fly across the keyboard, tapping fast as a torrential rainfall after a long drought. They do not pause. My mind works faster than my fingers can, […]

    I dip my finger in the sauce. Not bad, but it needs a bit more salt. I add some, then taste it again- perfect!

  • Antonia commented on the post, separate 6 years, 11 months ago

    They were pulling me away from him.
    “No!” I cried, desperately reaching out for him. Our fingertips were inches away from each other, but he was caught too, and they were tearing us apart, separating us for […]

  • Antonia commented on the post, professional 7 years, 1 month ago

    I could do this. I was a professional. Well, as “proffesional” as you can get at chasing half-bird men with huge, feathery black wings and clawed hands who have captured your family. I raced after them on the […]

  • Antonia commented on the post, town 7 years, 1 month ago

    To be honest, it looked more like a pile of mud that had been rouchly sculpted into what he assumed where houses. Perhaps the architect had been blind? Even so, it was Ethan’s home, and so Stefan followed him down […]

    The womans hands flitted back and forth across the loom, creating a magnificent piece of cloth, as soft as a newborn’s skin. Her ancient, gnarled hands were more graceful than any swan and her eyes, though small […]

  • Antonia commented on the post, bellow 7 years, 3 months ago

    “GO!” bellowed Mr. Chase, pointing to the door with one thick finger. Teriffied, I scrambled to my feet and hurried to the door. “I- I’m sorry Sir,” I stammered, “when would you like me to-” “I SAID GO!” He bellowed again, louder than before. I jumped and flung open, sprang out of hte clasroom and […]

  • Antonia commented on the post, deserve 7 years, 4 months ago

    I didn’t deserve this fate. I had done nothing; nothing but rescue an innocent woman from a fire. And they accuse me of witchcraft. Witchcraft I say! Just because I mannaged to escape a burning house unharmed?! And now I shall be burned at the stake. I am sure though, that these flames shall burn […]

    In the center of the table stood a golden candelabra. Twelve candles stood within it. Eleven of them had been extinguished. Anna gasped- their time had almost run out. As she watched, the last candle flickered. “No!” she cried under her breath, taking a step towards the candle as though she would be able to […]

  • Antonia commented on the post, obey 7 years, 4 months ago

    “Six laps, go!” yelled the instructor. My legs ached- we’d already run five this morning! With a groan I started off around the track again. “Pick up the pace there Ms. Stevenson! I said RUN!” Glancing back over my shoulder I saw him bellowing at me, spitt flying from his mouth as his nostrils flared. […]

  • Antonia commented on the post, study 7 years, 5 months ago

    “I. Will. Never. Remember. This.” I groan as I hunch over the countless sheets of paper on my desk trying to memorize endless biological terms and their meanings. I’m litterally tearing my hear out as I sit in the semi-darkness at eleven o’clock, not going to bed because I know I have a test the […]

    The sweet sound of laughter fills the room as the children run in from the playground. Their beaming faces with rosy cheeks and bright eyes could light up an entire city. Why can’t we stay young forever…?
