• Chrystal commented on the post, knock 6 years ago

    There was a knock on the door. When I heard it I jolted up from my position on the couch. How long had I been asleep for? It could not be 7:00. There was no way it was time for him to be there. The knock sounded again; panicked I scrambled off to open the door. To my relief it was not Bradley.

    You liar. I can’t believe I fell straight into your trap.
    Why didn’t I see this coming?
    That grin, the devilish look in your eye.
    It should have been so obvious.
    I should have avoided you but no,
    I fell fast […]

  • Chrystal commented on the post, minute 6 years, 9 months ago

    Only a minute left on the clock. Her blood was racing through her veins and her breath was coming out in shallow gasps as she pushed herself to continue running. She couldn’t stop. She had to make it to the gate. […]

    Compassion is perhaps the most difficult kind of passion to have towards one another, especially when we have done one another wrong.

  • Chrystal commented on the post, setting 7 years, 5 months ago

    The setting that afternoon was bleak and cold. A stark contrast to the girl standing against it, with her red hair and bright green eyes. She was full of life and excited to be graduating! It was odd that someone so merry would request to have her picture taken on such a gloomy day.

  • Chrystal commented on the post, warned 7 years, 5 months ago

    I was warned this would happen. Love. Bah! I told them, “Not to me! I’ve got no interest fooling around in that business!” They all laughed and I couldn’t understand why. Now I do. I should’ve listened to them. They were right. Love doesn’t like being scorned for so long. When it is, it’ll come […]

    The morality of this fellow had sunken low after a number of encounters with the usual crooks; bandits, thieves, whores, drunks, liars- you name it he had known them all personally. And when one associates themselves with such a crowd, the good in them takes a heavy beating until one day, they will find the […]

  • Chrystal commented on the post, suppose 7 years, 5 months ago

    Suppose I was to just sit here, sipping my coffee and typing these words. Suppose I had only sixty seconds to write to you everything I could possibly want to say. What would I tell you? I don’t really know but I suppose it would be something rather simple, seeing as I likely don’t know […]

    There’s always this edge I find myself standing on at work. Customers that come through for their coffee, they determine whether or not I’m shoved off that edge or pulled to the safety of sanity.

  • Chrystal commented on the post, braid 7 years, 5 months ago

    The golden twists and turns in her hair lit up in sun on that crisp, fall day as she ran out to play with her friends in the street. She turned around and waved a gloved hand back at me, her blue scarf covering her grinning mouth. Braiding her hair own hair for the first […]

    The sun sets as your eyes fill to the brim with sweet tears. You’ve been waiting for this lovely day all your life. You’ve finally found each other after many wrong turns and heartbreaks. The moment is now. Happily ever after. You smile back at him as you say, “I do.”
