Lilith

Jessie Masoner

The sky was darkening, everyone knew that we may not make it through this one, but still everyone kept their hopes up, for the ones who were unable to fight back. Nothing could prepare us for the horror that we witnessed, the shadowy figures who were unphased by the artillery that we rained down upon them. The reports that came in were scattered, hopeful at first some men stated that they could be taken down with some sort of melee weapon. Ot...

The Leprechaun

In honor of St. Patrick's Day, here is an old one from the archive.....

 

O'Leary the Leprechaun needed a drink. He was the only Leprechaun in town who didn't have a pot full of gold, and he was sick and tired of being ridiculed for it.  So he combed his neat red beard, put on his green top hat, and sauntered down the road to his favorite watering hole, The Olde S...

Lilith Author: Jessie Masoner Authors note: This is a prelude and a rough draft, very rough.

---------------------

At first nobody knew what was going on, all we knew was, something bad was going to happen. Something bad, what an understatement first the sky darkened, such darkness it wasn't normal we could all feel it around us, the darkness was literally alive around us forming its own presence. We were unable to see each other, our faces were blurred from th...

Supernova Armageddon

Quick author's ramble - sorry I've not been about much, I will read what I can as soon as I can. Anyway, I've been applying Project 52 to my writing and I have 60,000 or so words. I know its cheating not to post before I've finished but my ego wants to know the damn thing holds together before I take the risk.

Anyway, here's a related piece to my P-52 tale that may well end up in the final edit, albeit in a slightly different form.

A Visiting Spirit

Posted on December 15, 2010 at 9:10 PM Comments comments (0)

After I lost my folks in a deadly accident at the age of eight, I started getting visited by spirits, not of my folks, but total strangers. It made no sense to me, and it scared me very much. And as this was all happening in my life I was taken in by my Aunt Lovena, she had a nice home and she was closest to my mother, her sister. She told me that they were best friends, and that her big sister would want her to raise me.

The spirits followed me into Aunt Lovena’s home and kept on...

My story begins with me as an eight-year-old living adjacent to Sheppard Air Force Base in Wichita Falls, Texas where my Father was an Airman, and my Mother worked at the City Mental Hospital. My next-door neighbor was a kid named Jordan and he was my best friend and to be very honest my only real friend in the Air Force Neighborhood which was mostly Caucasian families. I heard my Mother say to my Father that she thought it was funny we ended up right next to the only oth...

The Slave

Posted on August 31, 2010 at 1:39 AM Comments comments (6)

My name is Riley, and I am a slave.

 

I live in a small domicile with my owners: a male and female. I do not know their names, as I am unable to communicate with them except in the most rudimentary ways. They belong to a species far more advanced than my own. Through gestures and a few monosyllabic commands, they control every facet of my life. When I ...

The Perils of Multitasking

Posted on August 12, 2010 at 5:56 PM Comments comments (12)

Smoke billowed from the vent eaves—wavy, boneless, grey arms, reaching for the sky and signaling for help.  Discombobulated by the sight, Harry eased his car into the driveway, anyway.  In a matter of seconds flames burst through the roof and a section of lumber, shingles and insulation plunged into the living room.  The fire inhaled and then roared back out.  Tiny bits of his house, charred red and still hot, pelted down and rolled off the hood of his sedan.  H...
