The Star Chronicles Section III

| Fallen Stars | A taffy-colored skirt swished as slender fingers rushed to whisk the steaming pot off the stove and onto the rugged table.

It’s Just A Radio

I’m just a kid. Adults don’t care much about what I think. But I do think. And I listen. I go up the tiny stairs to the attic and wipe the strands of cobwebs off the broken radio that my parents had dumped. And I grab the big knob in both hands and turn it […]

Running his fingers down the handle of the payphone, he hesitated for the slightest moment before the number was dialed. Waiting apprehensively for the persistent ringing to be replaced by the voice he knew so well, sweat began to bead on his forehead even though a cool fall rain fell outside. “Quinn.” The voice answered […]

Heroes – The Burning Pen

“I fall asleep in hospital parking lots [1]” Amaris made a wacky face at herself in the mirror as she scooped her hair into a ponytail. “You should probably be more careful about where you fall asleep.” Her digital clock advised.

Destroying Castles

“Ooh, isn’t he dreamy?” Madison squealed, twirling her long blond hair around her index finger. “Well, to tell the truth, I don’t know how you find him so attractive.” Brenda said dryly, scrutinizing the photo of her best friend’s crush from church. “Brown hair, brown eyes, he looks pretty normal to me.” Madison snorted and […]

We Have This Hope…

A seagull shrieked and soared in the air above the London docks. In the docks a privateer’s ship bustled with activity as sailors shouted orders and hauled crates up the gangplank.
