    I stood and hacked at her withering mane with a brush. Then, I brushed the rest of her body in smooth, wide circles. It was calming.

  • squeakable commented on the post, flood 7 years, 3 months ago

    I ran through the trees, my chest heaving from sprinting and hyperventilating, my eyes decreasing to slits and tears streaming over my cheekbones, creating a flood that streamed vertically, clinging to my skin. The rain started to hit the canopy above, and after a few seconds, the clouds formed one solid block of gray and […]

    I ran through the trees, my chest heaving from sprinting and hyperventilating, my eyes decreasing to slits and tears streaming over my cheekbones. The rain started to hit the canopy above, and after a few seconds, the clouds formed one solid block of gray and poured with all of their might. The branches scratched my […]

    I fingered the gown in my hands, the silky hem that was interwoven and crafted to perfection. I wanted to pluck a thread and pull my way out, break open from my identity and become someone much different than I. I knew it would never work, even temporarily being someone else was a stretch, but […]

    The hit numbers are moving up so fast that they are blurred. How could this be happening? The whole screen goes black. Some tiny dots blink on the screen and position themselves into words, words that I don’t want to read. Not only do I have a virus, I am being blackmailed. It is definitely, […]

    She tossed her platinum hair, a curtain of poison sheathed in a long ponytail. My scowl unfurled like a carpet, a curving shape like the spine of a cat. We almost made a castle together, her tower of tallness and me, the drawbridge, knocked down and trampled upon. I hated her, she hated me. What […]

  • squeakable commented on the post, obey 7 years, 3 months ago

    I thrash in the depths of the water and my breath bubbles out of my mouth, my hair, a cocoon, a nest, a net with me tangled in it. I try not to breathe, not to obey the crushing force that comes at a depth this deep, I try to keep my air in, it […]

    I leaned on the table as I shoveled food into my mouth, and it inched farther back as the legs jiggled. The massive oak table creaked as it hit its interlocking joints, and I put my feet up onto the bar and leaned back against the chair as soon as my stomach had caught up […]

    I slouched on the couch that sank and pulled me into its expensive depths. “I’m so tired, though. Can’t we just stay for ONE night?” Hea sighed. “Well, it is comfortable. I’m sure one night couldn’t do that much harm…”

  • squeakable commented on the post, president 7 years, 3 months ago

    The president walks into the room before I leave, and I restrain myself from rolling my eyes. I don’t need some good luck speech. And I won’t win this for my country, or me. I’ll win it for Faye, and Seam. I don’t care about anyone else. I don’t see why I was picked for […]

  • squeakable commented on the post, horses 7 years, 3 months ago

    The hooves clattered against the pavement in time with my racing heart. I feinted to the right and ducked behind a cart with watermelons. But I knew they would find me. There were too many. I apologized to the owner and tipped it over, the fruits rolling everywhere. I darted away as fast as I […]
