A Twist on Alice- Clover

by Shea Sion
Katrina’s smile was so wide that my face hurt just staring at it. But what else was I supposed to stare at? Her eyes reminded me of a cat’s, with a longer pupil and a strange yellow-green color. She had beautiful hair I suppose, but it looked like freshly washed and brushed fur which made me want to pet it. I went with her smile.
“You’re the Cheshire Cat?” I asked. “Are you really a cat?”

Dahllia

by A.R. Vargas
The deafening screams were silenced. The only noise that I could hear was a slow, faint pounding. Although it didn’t stay faint. The faint pounding became louder and was soon accompanied by the shaking ground. I stood, sword ready, waiting for my adversary to appear; and appear it did.

The Legend of the Axe

by Zoe Phillips
What is a bacca? If that’s what you’re wondering, a bacca is a small furry brown animal that has short arms with paws and claws. They don’t have tails but they can stand on two legs if they please. Some of the baccas from other parts of the world have different colors of fur, but most baccas never let their thoughts stray far from the peace and quiet of their treetop homes.

Nemesis

Nemesis

by Samyuth
I sit in my Hotel Room waiting for a velvet package with a dragon symbol on it. I sit there and meditate, the only way to clear my mind of what I have done in the past 6 years — it is the calm that keeps me from shattering.

By Ermeen C.
