These Uncertain Times: Part 1 of 6

It was as if the suburb in which they lived had a special forcefield around it, a bubble of energy that emanated from a central point. Layers of invisible barriers grew outward from the centre, gradually growing weaker as they drifted further away from the source. Cara drove inward, body exhausted by work. Tiredness rolled… Continue reading These Uncertain Times: Part 1 of 6

Introduction to: ‘These Uncertain Times’

This is bigger than you and me. That doesn't mean we stop being us. A global emergency in our own backyard. When a super-fungus takes over the world, Cara and Oscar, and the entire country’s population, hide away in isolation. Widespread fear fuels a dystopian lifestyle almost overnight. Cara, who thrives on human connection, feels… Continue reading Introduction to: ‘These Uncertain Times’

A Truck Dreams

Orange streaks across the sky. I’m falling and the dream I always have plays behind my mind. A world on fire. I fall and fall until I stop. The soil here is soft and I pass through it quickly, my impact blasting a crater a hundred metres outward. My systems are offline for approximately half… Continue reading A Truck Dreams

The sound of her shoes against the floorboards echoed through the room. The house was quiet, empty and waiting. After checking… Continue reading Sacrifice.

The Elephant In The Room

The tiny man that lives in my chest is breathing louder. Longer. His lungs swell and ribcage expands and with each breath instead of retreating his body continues to grow. He sits curled, his spine arched and face unseen and with every inhale I feel my bones creak. You stand above me, watching me from… Continue reading The Elephant In The Room

Peter/Susan

Into the mirror of his mother’s downstairs bathroom Peter stared. Susan stared right back. Peter on one side of aluminium, glass and paint, and Susan reflected perfectly back on the other. They stared, at the pimple pulsing in the centre of Peter’s forehead. Peter raised two hands, shaking as he placed a finger on either side… Continue reading Peter/Susan

Mint Cornetto

Music plays out of the car speakers, crackly and sweet. I like this song. Dad ripped this to a CD for me when I asked him to. Mum opens the driver’s door and sits back down in the car, switching off the radio. She hands me a Cornetto and I curl my lip. “This is… Continue reading Mint Cornetto
