    Stuck in Between

    Stuck in Between

    They say everyone prays before they die. Although, I never got the chance to, my last breath was taken from me before I knew what was even happening. I had been sick for the first weeks of snowfall. Days would go by and I wouldn’t wake up. All the days seemed to collide together during these dark times. I was getting thin, too thin to be healthy anymore. I could see my rib cage bones; they were sticking out farther than they usually would or even should. A week had gone by and my family had only seen me awake, maybe three times.

    Behind You

    Behind You

    Tag stares at his empty hand as the frantic, bumbling Christmas shoppers make careless circuits around him. He doesn’t move, as if freezing the moment will somehow let him roll it back and undo it. His breath hangs in his throat. His right hand remains poised in mid-air, ready to type out a forgotten message to Sonia.

    The Descent

    The Descent

    I awake. I feel myself drawn back into the world of reality. Not quite ready, I permit my eyes to rest a few more seconds, minutes maybe. The image in my mind, the trace of a lost dream, is too beautiful to let go.

    Slayer Savvy

    Slayer Savvy

    Name's Sascha. I'm not as well-known as the male resistors. Yes, we're all made and resist the strain itself. We rebirth into our next lives with no memory of being made, but a strong sense of duty to our last left purpose as we died. We can't remember that unless we Awaken, which is the process of remembering all our lives. I'm reborn from Ileana, not Illona, Jusztina Szilagyi Tepes.
