    She held the dress up against her body, meeting his eye in the mirror. “Well? What do you think?” she prompted.

    He grimaced slightly; her smile faltered.

    “You don’t like it,” she muttered. It wasn’t a question.

    “It’s beautiful,” he corrected her quickly. “I just don’t think it’s the one. It’s not hers. It’s not what we’re looking for.”

  • “You know that what you’re doing is completely stupid, right?”

    “Yeah…but it’s fun.”

    “Okay, but it’s not going to be so fun when you accidentally kill yourself.”

    “Sure, fair enough — but I won’t know, because I’ll be dead.”

    “…you are truly insufferable.”

    “Thanks. So are we doing this, or what?”

    “Unfortunately. Let’s go then.”

  • “You started this whole thing. You know that, right?”

    The words seemed to offend him, even though they were true. He swallowed thickly and turned to face me.

    “You don’t think I was alone in instigating this, do you?” His response took me by surprise. “There were several of us — eight, to be exact. We know exactly what we’re doing…and why…[Read more]

  • She didn’t know what she was looking for, just that she would die if she failed to find it. Elisavet had warned her of the repercussions of a failed mission, and she replayed her ominous words over and over in her mind: “If you don’t find it, they will find you.”

    They could have offered her a bit more guidance. Now she was stuck, fighting for…[Read more]

  • Just keep dreaming. It’ll push you along. You’ll find your way if you don’t let reality have a grasp on your future. Just keep floating onward, you know you’ll end up where you belong if you just close your eyes and live as if you were really free.

  • Higher is when you’re already intoxicated but you decide to push yourself further and do more because even though you probably can’t even remember your name right now you want to get even sillier that’s what dummies do and you shouldn’t do drugs kid okay it will ruin your life eat spaghetti instead

    It didn’t happen. After all that planning, all that fretting and worrying and lack of sleep, it never even happened.

    Words could not describe the anger that ravaged her.

    She glared up at him, not even daring to address her future step-mom. She just glared right up at him, spat, “If you can’t just have us both, I had hoped you’d at least…[Read more]

  • I accidentally found her. By complete mistake. I never intended for this to happen, but it did. I found her, and then I lost her, and now I have me, myself, I, but no one else. Myself, but not her. And she was all I wanted, and I didn’t know it until I lost her on purpose.

    It was the last thing she expected to see upon waking in the morning, but there it was anyway, glaring and gruesome: the ring that she’d rejected, left to lie upon her table for God knows how long. He must have sent a servant here sometime during the night. She detested him now more than ever; she defied him, and he responded in such a way?

    I will change anything for you. I will change myself. I will change my life. I will change my mind. That’s dangerous. Love is a poison. But I will change. Anything. Everything. Anyone. Everyone. Just to feel your […]

    She stands at the back of the empty church, burning under the glares of all the idols – Mary, Joseph, Baby Jesus, all in a pretty little row – and as she’s tapping the pew beside her she remembers when she […]

  • Chelsea Leigh commented on the post, collar 7 years, 8 months ago

    I’ve never liked shirt collars. I get this irrational sensation that whenever I wear a collar, it’s climbing up my neck and closing itself around my throat and trying to choke me. And I really do gag. It’s quite unexplainable. I mean, it’s not like I have a fear of collars. I just have a […]

  • Chelsea Leigh commented on the post, repeat 8 years, 2 months ago

    Repeat is when someone says or does something over and over again. Repeat is also a setting on your iPod. But I can never put my songs on repeat, because it annoys me, and whenever I get past the good part of a song, I just click the “next” button because I don’t want to […]

  • Chelsea Leigh commented on the post, thread 8 years, 2 months ago

    “You take one end, and I’ll take the other.” “What’s the point of this again?” “I just wanna see how long it is, okay?” She huffed, but obliged, holding one end of the thread between her thumb and forefinger. As he backed away slowly, the thread elongated, stretching to its true length. And she didn’t […]

  • Darkness. Only darkness. It had been days since she’d seen the light. She was still bleeding, she knew – the rusty smell of her blood took up the entire cell. She tried crying. She tried calling for help. But the only thing she could manage were heartbroken, dry sobs – painfully inaudible.

    It was disheartening, really, to look down at the map spread across the table, and then realize that he was so far away from where he needed to be. He still had half an ocean to travel, and it had already been months. At this rate, she was probably already betrothed to some other fellow, […]

  • “She’s dead.”
    Anne froze, turning slowly to face the messenger. It was her brother George, who stood in the doorway, smiling brightly.
    “She’s…dead?” Anne repeated in awe.
    “She’s dead. And now, sister, you are truly Queen of England; Anna Bolina.”
