    My knees were trembling, my palms were clammy. I looked like a fish with my mouth in a tiny “o”. I stared at the audience. They looked like an intimidating dark ocean. I couldn’t speak. I felt my throat closing up. My mouth was dry and I wanted to run away and hide. I couldn’t say a word, I couldn’t speak.

    She wiped her palms on her apron, now spotted with colourful frosting, then stepped back to admire the flowers she finished on a birthday cake. She lifted the apron off her, balled it up, and went to the restroom to wash her hands.

    I thrashed on my bed, flinging my blanket off. My blanket tangled between my legs, and I lay there trying to control my breathing. It’s three in the morning, and I still can’t sleep.

    The little girl pouted her small, rosy lips as she rubbed her sore knees. “what did you do that for?” she yelled at the boy with shining blonde hair standing before her. “Because I can and I think you’re ugly!” he smirked, amusement shown in his eyes. “That’s not very nice, you can’t just push […]

    Everyone, well most people in my school thinks the band sucks. They didn’t want the band to go to the 8th graduation because they thought they don’t play well. Whenever we head back to the girls’ locker rooms from gym, we always pass by the band’s classroom – and we would only hear off-keys and […]

    He leaned close to her bed clutching her dry hands in his. His older sister has been ill for months now, and the doctors said that she only had a few weeks to live. He squeezed his eyes shut. “I’m fine,” she said. “it won’t be so bad, you know?”

    The train’s engine turned on as I felt the vibrations underneath my feet. “Don’t lose your ticket, lady,” the thin man punching the tickets said. I rolled my eyes and looked away, loosely gripping my ticket in my right hand. I felt the wind hit my face from the open window next to me, not […]

    It was the smell of earth that calmed her. The rain stopped and the violas shook from the wind. Their bright, violet colour standing out from the trees.
