Nobody can hear a scream in the vacuum of space, or so they say. And yet, the vacuum that is my existence screams with a complex mixture of emotions every new day I wake up to fulfill my designed purpose. I wonder if, perhaps, the only person that can hear the scream in the vacuum of empty space is the one screaming.
The Compliance of Knights
There weren't always dragons in the Valley. I'm sure they wish they hadn't come here, but regret is always futile. I've lived my life evading regret as much as possible, but now, in the heat of this battle, it is hitting me harder than my sword against my enemy's chainmail.
The Unused Couch
My alarm jolted me awake at 4AM in my hotel room. My roommate and I bustled to throw our things together, dress, and head downstairs for the government-provided continental breakfast. They gave us eggs, hash-browns, and orange juice but no coffee. Once fed, we were bussed to downtown Phoenix, Arizona, which only lasted about ten or so minutes.
The Color Of Rage

I drew my katana from its place on my hip. It slid like butter from the sheath, flashing into the air like a flame. The armored men surrounding me leveled their spears in preparation for my next move. Silence hung eerily in the air. The heat of the night bore through my black suit, armor, hood, and mask, making me sweat more than I usually would. Luckily, my hands were gloved so I knew it wouldn’t affect my grip on the weapon’s handle. I twirled the blade, accustoming myself to its balance. I stared back into the eyes of my attackers, conveying my resolve. I saw fear, regret, and a hunger for violence. I could taste my imminent victory.

Red and Blue Lights
Red and blue lights flashed across my eyes as the officer escorted me to his vehicle. The moon and stars watched as his right hand guided me to the back end of the car while the other yanked the door handle, pulling it aside for me to enter. The darkness of the interior consumed me as I sat on the hard, plastic seat. A cage separated me from the policeman as he slid into the driver’s seat, shutting his door and revving the engine to life. I leaned back into the seat and closed my eyes as the vehicle rumbled, remembering the events leading to this moment.
