Sammy Snippet was a strange kid. He always smiled no matter what and always talked to himself. Lance, Eddie, Frankie, Joey and Billy and Thomas always picked on on him. He had no friends and always ate lunch alone and preferred to sit by himself.
Lance and his group of bullies always picked him for having “imaginary friends”. One day in the winter when Sammy was walking home from school Lance went a little too far. As he got out of sight from the high school away from teachers and staff Billy and Thomas shoved him into a snowbank. Eddie and Frankie bombarded him with snowballs then Lance and Frankie held him well the others piled snow on top of him turning him into a human snowman. Read more “The Snowman’s Revenge”

I’m only fourteen years old, but I’m very tech-savvy. I enjoy hacking computers and even building them from time to time. One of my more recent and morbid hobbies has been exploring the deep web. Before you get the wrong idea, I don’t go there for the dark stuff. Well, I do, but not the kind of stuff you’re thinking about.
I explore the deep web for the joy of finding new websites. Brand new, off-kilter, bizarre ones. I find them and catalog them for my own personal enjoyment. It feels like I’m actively discovering new parts of an ever-growing planet. Or at least the dark side of one. Read more “I Bought my Dad on Ebay”
I can remember something good, me and my two brothers with our children and our wives having a barbecue in my back garden and the sun was shining. Finally things were starting to become good for all of us and we all had good jobs and everything was fine. I remember seeing our children playing together and getting along, the smell of the barbecue was covering the air and life was good it was all good. I have a 16 year old daughter and my oldest brother has an 18 year old son and our younger brother has a 15 year old son, all of our wives were getting along and they were chatting away so happily.
I remember observing this and just thinking to myself how we all had made it to here and through all of the difficulties and pressure that we came through. I was so surprised that life was actually peaceful and calm; it was just yesterday we were constantly having one trouble after another and to overcome it is the best feeling in the world.

It was a brilliant club to be part of and we were a bunch of 60+ year olds enjoying ourselves, we have our own club or space in a library and the times are from 8-10 Sunday to Tuesday. Mind you, there are only ten of us in this club, but we are a brilliant lot and 5 of the members are retired. It is more of a club for the old and the retired, who have worked all of their lives and we do creative things, from reading scripts, novels to even put on a little show as we have our own stage. We also do painting and drawing and for people of our age this is just perfect and it is something we all enjoy doing.
I guess this place is our little space to get away from the outside world, as you get to our age, you just feel like escaping from things and there are not many places for people of our age unless you are rich. You can say I was the leader of the group and I made sure the register was being signed and I had to plan what to do next for the next session. There were 6 men and 4 women and we all got along so well and it was amazing, to find such good people at our age. I do try and advertise our little club to other people our age, but life for some is extremely touchy and also you have to consider some people our age don’t have the best health.

There are a thousand ways to die in the Colombian rainforest.
I first gained this appreciation as a boy when, in a questionable bit of parental inspiration, father allowed me to accompany him to inspect our family’s South American holdings, in particular a coffee plantation located on the eastern slopes of the Andes. The expedition was considered almost routine, the chosen path well known to our guards and guides, yet even so we encountered no small number of difficulties in our travels. Read more “Tunda”
It was a dark and foggy day in Harborview Maine, almost too foggy for one to see. Two young teenage boys Rick and Zack(both 14) were walking about on the town docks waiting for their friend Gillan to come over on his boat. He arrived about five minutes later, he tied his boat up and hopped out. They walked up to a small local shop called C&E , they walked in and got some drinks and sandwiches. They paid for them and walked up to Zacks’ house, they watched a movie and played basketball on his hoop outside.
Soon it was time for Gillan to drive his boat back to his house on brooks island. They got down to the dock where they said their goodbyes and Gillan hopped into his boat. Rick and Zack by the shore watching their friend drive off. They walked close to the shoreline where they were suddenly whipped into the water. They were underwater when they realized that seaweed was tied around their ankles tugging them down, down they went. Read more “Foggy Waters”

It was a bright, sunny morning when Eve and her mother carted the last of the moving boxes into their new home. It was a lovely, quaint little two-bedroom with a minute kitchen and spacious backyard, plenty of space for Eve to play. When the excited little girl clamored into her new room, she gazed around in awestruck wonder at the size.
It was the bigger of the two bedrooms, with a polished hardwood floor and textured plaster mocha walls. For a 7 year old whom had previously been living in an old nursery, this was a big step up, and her mind filled with ideas of where to put everything she had…and even some things she didn’t have.

This story I am about to tell you is a story I will never forget. Before you go buying stuff on Craigslist, you had better meet at a public place like a coffee shop, or a convenient store, because as soon as a stranger invites you into their home, that’s the time to make a change of plans, this world is ugly, it just may happen to you.
This all starts out when I am looking for a Netbook online. My other one had broke, and I had needed a new one for school work. Being in college wasn’t easy, the assignments felt like Rocket Science, so I needed just a simple Netbook for surfing the web, and I didn’t want have to go to the library back and forth, and the wait time was forever just to get on a computer in the library. But luckily I had found a one-hundred dollar bill that I had kept away for a while. Read more “Don’t Buy Stuff on Craigslist Unless You Meet at a Public Place”

You better watch your every step
when the Night knows your name
And the things with amethyst eyes
Whisper madness at your door
No light shows in that darkness
nor star dare shine the way
But the midnight wind
Whistles and sings
Of raging mindless things
That rip and tear and scream
And you better watch your every step
When the Night knows your name

Who takes evening walks
And only stares to our feet
He has an evil and sad tone
For the time he lived in his old shabby home Read more “Mr. Green”
