  • The Ocean

    I had never wanted to go to the ocean, but here I was. Sitting in the sun, staring at the waves, wondering what I was going to do next. Andrew was behind me, staring at the same ocean, but I knew he wasn’t thinking about the same thing I was. He was happy to be…

  • The Stranger

    When the man first appeared outside my house, I had an inkling I knew him.  Or had least seen him before.  But I couldn’t pin down where I knew him from.  He looked like any other blue-collar worker I saw around town, but the fact he was standing on the sidewalk and staring at my…

  • Court Appearance

    “I always wondered what it would be like to have a court appearance.  And now I’ll get to see everything from the front row!”  I stared at Tonya, my neighbor, and I knew everything I thought about her was real.  I knew she was an attention seeker.  I knew she was nosy.  But I had…

  • The Bridge

    As soon as I saw the man on the bridge, I knew I wasn’t dreaming.  He was dripping wet, yet his hair was standing on end.  I wasn’t sure how he had gotten to where he was without leaving behind any footprints, but I blinked a few times to make sure I wasn’t hallucinating.  I…

  • The Campground

    PHOTO PROMPT © Bill Reynolds  I had finally done it. I had successfully built myself a home where no one could bother me. My camper was exactly what I needed in this stage of my life. I had spent the last weeks perfecting what clothes and items would fit and where they should live. The next step would…

  • The Wrong Lips

    “The lips seem wrong,” I heard Jerome mutter to himself. I sighed internally because I knew he was going to start all over again. We had a show in less than two weeks and he was obsessing over the lips on his third painting. He needed to have no less than ten paintings and he…

  • Silence

    When the song came on, Bill immediately started to cry. I had a strong suspicion it had something to do with Melinda, but I wasn’t sure I could ask. Mainly because I didn’t think he would answer truthfully. Ever since Melinda’s disappearance, Bill had been acting oddly, but wouldn’t give any clues away. As was…

  • The Darkness

    PHOTO PROMPT © Rochelle Wisoff-Fields  As soon as the lights went out I knew it was not an accident. And even though I had been preparing for this very moment, I wasn’t prepared at all. I was half hoping my suspicions about Oliver were wrong and nothing would happen. That my Sunday would proceed as…

  • The Raging Storm

    The storm was coming and I knew there was no way to avoid it.  I knew I should have left, but I couldn’t convince myself to leave my house.  If it was destroyed, I would accompany it.  All my worldly memories and possessions were tied up in this three bedroom house and I knew I…

  • Hunted

    “I didn’t mean to kill her.  I didn’t mean to kill her.  I didn’t mean to kill her,” I kept repeating the line to myself as I drove home.  I made sure not to speed as I didn’t want to get pulled over.  I knew if I got pulled over, I would tell all of…
