The Green Girl

The faint sound of sweet music floated through the musty air like the dotted trail of a bee. The shafts of afternoon light falling through the library’s nearly ceiling-high windows drew attention to shelf L1.  I soaked in the sunlight as I browsed through Langford’s works. The music faded away, but then I heard it... Continue Reading →


He was engulfed by the darkness. He could not see or move or think. His eyes burned, as did his insides. He was confused, but it was more than the usual daze – he felt, for the first time in a long time, fear. He could still hear the sound of the gas escaping from... Continue Reading →

Two Knives

It is only in movies that the weather mimics the mood of the protagonist, and the ongoing plot, but today it seemed to share the agony of the people of the city. It fell down in sheets, as if of metal, landing hard and with loud ‘pats’ on the ground. It showed no less force... Continue Reading →

The Whisper

The hollow metal tube did not have any ventilation, yet she felt a cool breeze against her skin. She could feel the cold, hard metal of the table beneath her, and the thin white sheet covering her.
