An Unexpected Holiday Encounter

Worried that John might get into an accident; I increased my speed and quickly followed. I saw him ski behind a large pine tree but to my surprise, he didn’t appear on the other side. Worried that he might have gotten into an accident, I quickly approached the tree on my ski but found absolutely nothing there but snow. John was nowhere to be seen. - @yuki-nee

The Dream World

Each time I go to my dream world, I spend more time, more time with my Jasmine, and it almost cost me my life. So one evening, I called Jessica and held over all my properties, money, and all I had to her because I am about to do the crazy thing no one has ever heard of. She warned me not to. But I refused to listen to her. I told her to always fill the pod with fresh water and walk me to my dream world just this once because I won't be coming back. -@ubani

It's Almost Christmas

Amara, looking tired even though it was early in the morning, glanced at her eight-year-old daughter. It was days like these that she wished she had some magic powers to give Laura anything she asked for. She was not sure how she would tell her daughter that their next meal was dependent on her father's arrival from his journey to the city. -@kemmyb

A Short Story


Image source: Pexels

Kemi took a deep breath and swallowed. She caught a glimpse of herself in the mirror. With a lovely face and voluptuous body, she was a cold-blooded, hungry red label drinker. Her peers regarded her as an enraged and arrogant architect. She had even rescued a slobbering blind person who had become stuck in a drain once. It had no effect on people's perceptions of her. -@dante31

The Spider Man

Charlie took a drag. He knew that a lot of people would be freaked out talking to a homeless guy, let alone having one just come up and sit down next to them at a park bench. But Charlie had spent some time on the streets – he always hung out on the street, somewhere, when he was smoking. He often ran into the homeless, and to him they were just people. -@cliffagreen

Love at the End

She took a long sip of the coffee and let out a breath," so this is really the end”, she finally said. Thomas raised his cup and said,''Cheers to the end of the world``.Esther laughed as she clinked her cup with his. “I really thought I had more time”, Thomas said. “There is so much I still want to do, there are so many things I still want to try”. Esther looked up at him and said,”There is no time like the present ''. -@sonofremi
