Ephemeral colors…

  Following a fresh deer trail, Vohne suddenly noticed a subtle shivering spreading through the canopy. Running his hand along a tall maple tree’s trunk, he felt a goosebumpy texture on the bark. The yearly ceremony had started. Back home, Cibelle had prepared her setup carefully. Pots and jars filled with warm-colored sparkling powders, and…… Continue reading Ephemeral colors…

Do you have a minute?

  Or probably more like five or ten minutes… But you know, not that long, I promise! I wrote my story for The NYC Midnight 250 Word Microfiction Challenge, and I know my English is far from perfect. I tried to run it into an online corrector, but the fact is that I don’t trust The…… Continue reading Do you have a minute?

Next!

  Putting on her best smile, she adressed the reflection in the mirror. Ok my dear… What are we going for, today? The blonde knew what she wanted, which was refreshing. She hated having to go through every album and fashion catalogue, trying to find the look. Look that pretty much never fitted either the client’s…… Continue reading Next!

Until death…

  She held her breath as she walked under the white roses covered arch. She felt like a princess.

Uh oh…

    He couldn’t believe his luck, for finding this crack in the rock, just barely wide enough to squeeze himself to safety. For the moment, at least. His whole body shook uncontrollably. It seemed like fear was nibbling on every one of his nerves. He wished he would pass out. But he needed to…… Continue reading Uh oh…

Not THAT rich…

    When he pulled in the drive in, her jaw dropped on her lap. They had been dating for a couple of weeks, but always on neutral ground. She couldn’t tell why, but they both enjoyed keeping things a bit on the mystery side. And that afternoon, when he had suggested to end their…… Continue reading Not THAT rich…

Bad news…

  The kids were playing loudly in the next room.  He wondered if anybody on the planet dreamt about being Winny the Pooh. Probably, at least one weird person, maybe more. These obviously didn’t know how damn hot it was, in these mascot costumes. And the smell… The sweat stench that made him regret having…… Continue reading Bad news…

Closet drama…

Watching the piles of clothes around her, she suddenly realized there were better ways to spend a day off.  She could have booked an afternoon at the spa, or crashed her best friend’s place with a bottle of wine to binge watch a random series on Netflix… But no, for some reason, she had decided…… Continue reading Closet drama…

Dumpster diving…

  It was Tom’s first night out, dumpster diving. Victoria had strongly objected, when he had first brought up the idea… ”Who wants to eat trash??” She argued. But them both being out of work gave his plan the advantage. Tom had studied the subject, he sure wasn’t the first one to decide to benefit…… Continue reading Dumpster diving…
