mayor

I wonder what someone’s thinking when he decides he wants to be a mayor. It’s a big responsibility, but doesn’t come close to something major, like being a president. And do mayors in real life even *wear* those sashes?

cathedral

Walking up the stairs into the cathedral, I felt a quick chill in the back of my neck. It was strangely beautiful, in the semi-darkness, with candlelight painting the walls softly below.

racket

“What the hell is that racket?” Mrs. Donald yelled from her room.
I cringed. We’d woken her up. And we weren’t even being that loud. That cranky bitch was always looking for reasons to scream at us.

necessity

“This is a necessity,” the store associate said, picking up an unusual plastic object. He held it out to me. “Do you have one of these?”
I shrugged. “Um, what is it?”

quest

“I’m on a quest,” she said. She grabbed her coat, hurrying, not even looking at her confused roommate. She grabbed her backpack and began to throw in the essentials: wallet, keys, water, and then some other objects that one could argue should never be considered important.

calling

Someone was calling my name in the distance. That’s what it sounded like; but it didn’t make any sense. Who else was out here? Even if I wasn’t alone, how would anyone here know my name?

backspace

Backspace, an odd word that almost doesn’t connect to what it means: delete. A “back-space” would almost suggest a space in the other direction.

lift

The lift at Porter was out of order, as it had been for the last two months. Janie would need to get off at the next station where the lift was functioning, then take a shuttle back to Porter.

loss

“I’m so sorry for your loss.” It’s strange how words that are meant to bring comfort seem so empty and meaningless. Everyone says the same thing when they don’t know what to say; they might as well say nothing.

chief

The Chief of Police was not happy. Things had been getting sloppy, and he was not at the point in his life where he could deal with such things. He just didn’t have the energy to make things better.

epic

It’s ironic that the word “epic” has become such an unexciting word. It’s used to often, and it’s really popular; I can understand people being attracted to epic situations, but referring to something as “epic” doesn’t make it epic.

hoop

There was a pink hoop on the ground. Some kids had been out here earlier, playing wiffleball or something and using hula-hoops as bases. This one didn’t make it inside, so there it was in the grass.

collar

In the beginning, I was indifferent to the fact that he wore a collar. But as I grew closer to him, I begin to like it. I was starting to really like the attributes that I had found strange.

return

I had to return to this place one day. That was the strongest thought on my mind as I climbed down through jagged darkness. I worried, though. I worried that the next time would be too challenging, and that I would fail to make it back up.

icicle

The icicle fell to the ground and shattered; it scared the shit out of me, and I turned around to see only smashed ice.

positively

There was “absolutely, positively no way an appointment could be scheduled.” That’s what the hairdresser told me over the phone. But I need to get my hair done for the show at 7.

pepper

The shaker of red pepper on the table was missing. I leaned over to another table to grab one, grabbed it, and sat back down. I wasn’t really hungry…

salt

The salty water got in my mouth. I spat it out, though it probably didn’t matter now, seeing as I had accidentally swallowed a lot after doing a cannonball of the dock. It was getting late.

avenue

Atlantic Avenue. It was all I needed to obtain another Monopoly, if I could just land there. But it seemed impossible, as if the dice were rigged or something. I already had Park Place and Boardwalk.

offer

I didn’t have much to offer. So I just became my honest self and pleaded. I’m not a fan of begging, and I knew she wasn’t either, but this was from my heart.

mist

Through the mist of the falls I thought I saw something. Maybe I was just seeing things, but I could have sworn I saw something that… wasn’t quite from this world. Something that completely changed how I saw everything after.

chance

I wasn’t sure if I wanted to take the chance. My heart was getting all fluttery just thinking about it. There was a lot to lose if things went badly. But there was so much about the situation that made me so happy.

force

It all hit me so suddenly, and the force of the blow was almost painful. I was in shock. I thought I had hit rock bottom, but now the ground had been shaken up under my feet.

silk

The silk curtains hanging down. They were red, I remember that they were red. The walls were sort of a peach color, and there was only one window; one window peering out onto the green of the courtyard. It was beautiful, but most of my memories are silent.

deer

Someone told me once that I look reminded them of a deer. I’d like to think they were talking about my big brown eyes. But who knows, maybe they thought I liked leaping out into the road.
