A magical catastrophe​ at the pub

“Did you not read the sign?” The burly man at the bar asked, his hairy fist coming to punch at the worn wood. She shivered, jumping back from his anger. “What?” Cassy asked, looking around as the rest of the bar’s inhabitants stared at her. “No cloaks!” He yelled, pointing to a very plain piece…

Rotting just bellow

“I’d like something to cover up my imperfections,” Sammy asked the lady at the counter, eyeing up the expensive makeup with distaste. “Of course, do you know what shade you are?” The lady asked. Sammy looked at her skin, the pale white almost gleaming against the harsh shop lights. “The palest.” She replied. The shop…

A dance below a starless sky

A dance below a starless sky. Tiny feet plodding on the soft dirt Toes squelching in the cold, Little eyes watching the sky Mouths slightly ajar to scold. A dance below a starless sky. A black sheet covering the world They shudder in dismay, Picking up the pace they dance once more Praying for a…

A mischevious quill

The wizard smiled proudly, mocking the peasants who knew not what magic was, let alone wield it. “I can easily fix your leg,” he yelled. The crowd cooed at his words, eyes focused on his form as he took out his Quill. He asked the man before him, “what is your name?” “Why would you…

She cursed mornings, calling the sun a hateful creature as she dressed in her mage gear. Ignoring the growl from her belly, she left for her first lesson. “Little late, aren’t we Ash?” The…

A room of masks

A dark room stands before you. It smells sweet, sickly sweet as if someone had poured sugar in every crevice to disguise the hidden, rotten contents. Shelves line the walls, dim lights above them to flaunt their wares. You walk in. They call so sweetly to you. Slowly, you edge closer, a shelf singing to…

All will fear her sugar tantrum

The child leapt through the street, a smile spread across her cheeks, pearly whites flashing. Her tiny white boots echoed ominously, the pitter patter a weirdly terrifying noise. An alarm sounded, the faint noise coming from a golden bell situated at the centre of the village. Murmurs started to appear. “She is coming!” Screamed a…

A wizard’s lack of hospitality

She knocked on the door, silence. She knocked on the door again, screaming emerged from inside the house. Annoyed, she continuously banged on the door until – “WHAT!” The wizard screamed, flinging the door back with such vigour it smacked him right in the face. Wincing, she stepped inside. “You invited me for dinner… remember?” She…
