• Rosheen commented on the post, transform 3 years, 5 months ago

    Love blossoms given time. It transforms from a tiny seed into a large oak tree, intertwined with its beloved that sit next to it. Their branches entwining with one another, creating a larger, stronger tree with their two forms. The branches reach toward one goal, the sky.

    The skull seemed to glare at her even through empty, dark sockets. Scarlet shied away from the staring centerpiece, surrounded by black feathers and black lace. She turned on her heel only to find herself face to face with the owner of the mansion: her deceased grandfather. His transparent form glistened and gleamed in the waning moonlight…[Read more]

    “Ahhh!”

    “Watch out for those spikes, Annie!”

    Annie jumped and dodged and weaved, screaming at the top of her lungs. Professor Sanchez could hear the high-pitched sound bounce off the walls of the old Egyptian tomb. He grabbed her as she jumped on the edge, happy to see her safe.

  • Rosheen commented on the post, impressed 5 years, 1 month ago

    The class clapped after their principal gave his speech, but among those clapping the audience, a few in the back barely made a sound as their hands made contact. The impressed ones were clearly in the front row, clapping the loudest before the principal turned to step off the stage in the auditorium. I sat in the back, clearly unimpressed.

  • Rosheen commented on the post, terrain 5 years, 1 month ago

    The whistle of the train blew loudly, echoing over the flat terrain. A tear trickled down Sheron’s cheek as she remembered the flames that tore through the small village in the valley she left behind. The image of her mother bursting into flames occupied her too much to see the beauty of the desert that lay beyond her train window.

    “I honestly don’t know what to do, Mike, I mean, she was pleading for her life for God’s sake.”
    “Calm, down Josie. Start from the beginning.”
    “I went into work like normal.”
    “Okay.”
    “And then I stumbled across this woman sitting out front, an officer confronting her about sitting there because she was homeless.”
    “So what was so bad about…[Read more]

  • Rosheen commented on the post, bellboy 5 years, 4 months ago

    The bellboy rushed to the scene from the elevator that stood around the corner in the grand hotel. A gorgeous moviestar was sitting on the floor, rubbing her ankle.

    “I always believed in true love at first sight, but this is out of my league.” He thought as he stooped down, asking out loud, “Ma’am, can I get you water? Anything?”

    It was too…[Read more]

  • Rosheen commented on the post, watchtower 5 years, 4 months ago

    Her golden hair lifted in the breeze coming through the cobblestone-framed window. The view it offered was glorious: the mountains of Azure framing the blue sky in the far-off distance, the forest of Wanderers nestled at the stony feet, and then the open field stretching to the castle gates.

    “It’s beautiful, Stefan.” She spoke to the boy beside her.

    Footsteps echoed down the hall, filled with magnificent artwork that decorated the grand halls. But the sound of a single pair of feet was the only other sound.

    The old man sat at his desk, having reached his destination. With a quill in hand, he began scribbling on a clean piece of paper, a contract for the next artist.

  • Rosheen commented on the post, coil 5 years, 5 months ago

    The snake coiled underneath the log, awaiting for its prey with beady little eyes. Its tongue licked the air, picking up a small field mouse’s incoming scent. Its warm body boiled red in its sights.

    If Christie had lips, it would curl in a devilish grin before she struck.

    “Oh, my word, look at the framework! What a beauty.”

    “Ellie, your words are echoing around The Louvre. Don’t you think you should keep it down?”

    “No! The framework is too beautiful to be observed in silence. I mean, look at the carving! Truly magnificent!”

    Essie proceeded to take a ruler out of her backpack despite her brother’s advice…[Read more]

  • Rosheen commented on the post, latitude 5 years, 5 months ago

    “Altitude, latitude? Where are we on this map?”

    I continued turning the map of squiggly lines and gibberish around in my hands, getting frustrated by the moment. My partner in crime merely shrugged, not knowing the Elvish tongue as well as I. You’d think Dwarves, AKA mountain dwellers, would eventually crawl out of their caves to learn of their…[Read more]

  • Rosheen commented on the post, backtrack 5 years, 5 months ago

    She ran up the stairs, trying to backtrack her memory of where her precious bracelet had been left. Her mother’s jade rabbit bracelet that her aunt had given her years ago was something Charlotte had promised her mother she would never lose.

    Charlotte burst through the bathroom door, knowing she would have habitually taken it off before washing…[Read more]

    She bowed her head in reverence as her father blessed her and sprinkled her with holy water.

    Jump jump jump, kick.

    Alex moved to the loud music on the pier, the seagull being the best audience and only yapping and hollering at the standing crowd, watching the wonderful artist at his best.

    Jump jump jump kick kick jump

    Alex almost sang the words aloud, but his mind concentrated on each step before the dance could wither away into…[Read more]

  • Rosheen commented on the post, level 5 years, 6 months ago

    As the elevator climbed up the 100 stories of greatness, my heart dropped back to level 1. My arms were shaking, but they still managed to keep my 100-page transcript from falling to my shoes. I was about to meet Mr. Wayne of Wayne Industries. My heart continued to beat faster, trying to pump my frozen blood. I tried to tell myself that dropping a…[Read more]

    Bang
    Bang

    The stake was driven into the railroad steel bar, digging into the prepared soil and gravel. The worker responsible for the work wiped his sweaty forehead. He looked up at the horizon, workers silhouetted against the sun’s fading rays of light, wondering if the rail line would ever be complete. His doubts would soon be abolished in…[Read more]

    “Objection, irrelevant.”

    “What? I’m just asking what church he goes to.” She pointed out, trying to ease the other attorney sitting across from her. His stern glare and arms crossed over his chest was enough body language to tell her that it was going to be a long, long day. The court reporter sitting at the head of the table sighed inwardly,…[Read more]

  • Rosheen commented on the post, personality 5 years, 7 months ago

    She wheeled around on her heelies, smoothly riding the tile flooring of the empty school’s hallways. Her upbeat music blasted through her headphones, trying to help her push out the depression that clouded her insides. She hoped her personality would shine through, riding it all the way to cloud 9, away from the visages of her next door neighbors…[Read more]

  • Rosheen commented on the post, nonsense 5 years, 7 months ago

    “This is nonsense!” She cried as the bell rang. She was furious her teacher hadn’t answered her question. It was being blown off, no worse. Mrs. Torrence had ignored her since the first day of school and here they were a week later and she just happened to ask a question before the bell, so what?
    Billy gave her a confused look, “What?”

    “She…[Read more]
