Reward

Dread and unwillingness. Suffering will come. Anticipation of the reward. Start. Blood pumps around. Face heats up. Breath quickens. Legs protest. Beep. That was slow. Sweat drips. Cars rush by. Heart beats in ears. Beep. Quicker. Good. Find the rhythm. Enter the bush. Senses alive. Stop and marvel. Calming surrounds of nature. Breathe. Resume withContinue reading “Reward”

Red hand

The red glow in his palm flickered whenever he made a fist. Thoughts of her invaded his mind again. He shook his head, unsure how long he’d been standing there, staring at his hand. Lost in dreams of an unattainable love. Only inanimate objects have been the subject of his testing so far. He hadn’tContinue reading “Red hand”

Scorching days

The heat rose up from the bitumen in shimmering waves of translucent nothingness. Nothingness she couldn’t touch, but feel in every pore and surface of her body. Even below the surface it seeped, strengthening the feeling of melting. Still she kept walking. She’d tried to cover her whole body in light linen clothes. It wasn’tContinue reading “Scorching days”

The Magic Wand

Bronson had started work five minutes ago and already regretted his life’s decisions. When you have the choice between going to the beach—baking yourself on the sand—or working a 10-hour shift in front of a grill—baking the burger patties and yourself—you have to be a real idiot to choose the latter. Hello, my name isContinue reading “The Magic Wand”

Wanting

Nausea assaulted his senses. His head went down automatically, close to the ground until the feeling subsided. Teleporting still did that to him. It felt like the way driving in a car made his stomach twist. With a little grunt he shook his head. No time for that now. Where is it? There! So closeContinue reading “Wanting”

Child of Destruction

With a few shrugs and shakes, the fresh skin settled around her muscles. It felt unfamiliar. That’s not uncommon, yet this time the sensation was more awkward. She looked down and saw that her breasts were gone. Instead, two small nipples buried in a mass of curly black hair stared back at her. She stampedContinue reading “Child of Destruction”
