The Apocalypse

A SHORT STORY I was on the bus when the apocalypse started. I used one of those little red hammers to break the glass- I bet when the bus tipped, half of the people panicked but the other half, myself included, were excited for the chance to finally rip one off the wall.

The Mild Insomniac

A story I promised a girl a long time ago.   “You know, staring at a screen for too long will stop you going to sleep,” Mum said. I laughed and rolled my eyes. We both knew that wouldn’t make a difference.   Slowly, one by one, the lights went out throughout the house and... Continue Reading →
