  Spring Finally Came by: K.Z. Morano   Spring finally came… I toiled in acres of buried bodies and the breeze babbled with our parents’ timorous voices. Like everyone else, I murdered mine. Mother’s eyes reflected the hunger that I felt… So I shattered the mirror that was her face. Her screams were like breaking glass– fragmented, crystalline. The village was cursed with cold barrenness but because of our sacrifices, the earth became fertile once again. It bore new a new [...]

Hitchhiker by K.Z. Morano   “Ran away?” the driver asked. I wanted to tell him to fuck off but he was kind enough to give me a ride. I nodded. “Have you found salvation?” he asked. The speedometer quivered to ninety-five. “What the fuck…” I reached for the door but his heavy fist collided with my jaw. “It’s alright, son.” His eyes were vulturine, burning with zeal as he blabbered something about the Lord and lost sheep. “I’ve come to take you home…” Then I noticed the rosary made of fine hair and deciduous teeth and a shiny plastic crucifix dangling from the rearview mirror.   Find similar tales in 100 [...]

the owl came

Countless years ago, measured in thousands, the Gods came first. Monstrous creations were born of their frivolity. Like the Gods, some of the creations were peaceful, others not. Their duty to preserve the earth completed once more, however, the day came that the Gods had to leave earth. Unleashed and with loose regulation, the abominable creations left behind multiplied. In their midst, another conception came to be, and his kind would exist absolutely outside of the God’s purview.

A Secret in Ash Brooke (01a)

Time: Seventh Grade Just before we moved to the suburbs, my parents took us out to what was going to be our new neighborhood to take a look around. We went up to a park called the Grange to meet some of the kids from our block. Standing by the sandbox was a really cute dark-haired girl with bangs and crutches. She had a cast on her leg and her arm and wasn’t managing very well. My mom took me up to her and introduced her as Dina Green. I asked her how she got hurt and she told me that [...]

Future Past - Essay 5 - Dina Green

After about twenty minutes of walking, the corridor took a sharp ninety-degree turn. The wall to the left of them ended a few yards into the new section, replaced by a system of carved marble columns which reached from floor to ceiling and were connected to each other by an elegant marble railing approximately three feet high. Up ahead, Wolfsbane could clearly see the staircase to the chamber below, and past the barrier to his left lay the fourth checkpoint. That chamber was enormous, with walls of reddish-brown stone and a ceiling which looked to be maybe forty feet high. The [...]

Wolfie Star-Runner Plays with Hellfire (The Star-Runner Chronicles, Book 2)

Junium 15, 1043   Wolfsbane never went back into town to get his belongings. As far as he was concerned, those things belonged to an entirely different person.

It had already been two days since he had been cursed. His wounds had healed at a truly inhuman pace and the instincts of a wild animal had begun to awaken within him. His sense of smell had enhanced [...]

The Rebirth and Awakening of Wolfie Star-Runner (The Star-Runner Chronicles, Book 1)

The Price of Youth by K.Z. Morano I was a rotting fruit… fattening flies… waiting to be harvested by death. I stared at the mirror as the maggots of old age consumed me. Skin, sinew, skeleton, soul… Then the peddler came, with his potion and persuasive tongue. It seemed like a fair price at the time. After all, what need have I for toes… Or posterior teeth… Or ovaries… They’re easily concealed. Three wealthy husbands later, he returned. “Fear not, Madame,” he chitchatted as he severed my leg. “Long skirts are fashionable these days.” I opened my mouth to scream… and silence exploded within the tongueless cavity.   Find similar tales in 100 Nightmares [...]
