Playwriting major looking to keep her creative writing skills sharp
“Alana…” “Alana.” “Alana!” “Wake up!” Alana Aguero snapped back into consciousness. Dark blue engulfed her vision. Only the off-white of her shark tooth necklace stood out. As the haze started to clear out of her head, she noticed something peculiar about the tooth: it was glowing. The glow softly pulsed like a heartbeat. Not only did it pulse with light, it also floated with the tip of the tooth pointing skyward.
The Bloody Bakery
Minerva “Minnie” Tuller always prided herself on taking good care of her customers. At least she would, if her assistant showed up. Dominic, her assistant, was prone to flights of fancy and getting easily distracted. No matter. She single handedly ran the Bloody Bakery for years before she hired Dominic. She could run this business in her sleep.

Twelve year old Katherine Moore drew patterns in the dirt while she patiently waited for the first responders to do their job. The scenery outside the barn was serene in comparison to the commotion in the house. The chill of the summer night air wrapped around her like a blanket that they give to victims on those crime shows her Momma would sometimes watch.
