    The chase ensued, winding through alleyways and streets. The nimble child dodged and evaded the grabbing hands of adults as he ran with his snatched fruit. Tonight, they would eat.

  • Brittany commented on the post, cliffs 6 years, 6 months ago

    Perched at the edge, looking onto the distant valley that I had loved. The cliffs that surrounded me were not high enough to view every piece. Instead, they only offered a sad glance of what once was.

  • Brittany commented on the post, creature 6 years, 6 months ago

    We are creatures of habit. We can’t afford to love. That’s what he told me as a single tear rolled down my cheek and I stepped back into the shadows, where our kind belonged. His light was too bring for my darkness.

    A cloud of flour exploded from the mixer he turned it on. I watched from the door amused, as he quickly attempted to turn it off, only succeeding in speeding it up.

    The bagel had only made it halfway to his mouth, which was now hanging open in an almost comical shape. The entire picture would have been completely hilarious if I hadn’t just told him I was pregnant.

  • Brittany commented on the post, smudge 6 years, 6 months ago

    the smudge on his nose was the most irksome thing about him. He seemed to completely ignore it, almost as if it wasn’t there. Which it was of course. And that was the one part he refused to fix.

  • Brittany commented on the post, tornado 6 years, 6 months ago

    A tornado of papers and school supplies seemed to form as you threw everything off of my desk in a fit of anger. All you could see was the color red and I was scared. Scared that you would turn your anger on something else.

    destiny is such a tricky thing to predict. It changes and shifts around with the actions of the present. Your destiny can be anything. And you can be destined for anything.

  • Brittany commented on the post, listening 6 years, 6 months ago

    Listening to music, but only following the words that run in circles through my head over and over. I’m glad for the time that we get, he said. What exactly does that mean for us, here and now? I’m so lost.

    Beware the liars with their smiles of gold. Beware those who use you and leave you behind to cry. Beware those who tell you they love you. Because caution can save your heart and soul.

  • Brittany commented on the post, pained 6 years, 7 months ago

    The pained expression on her face as he told her the truth was enough to rip his heart out. That is, if he had actually had one. As it was, he felt something akin to remorse, but less. Almost how one might picture remorse having never felt it.

  • Brittany commented on the post, truth 6 years, 7 months ago

    The truth is fluid. it shifts and melts and refolds itself around the situations and the memories. No one knows what the truth really is. And no one ever will. The truth is a lie. and all lies have some truth within them.
