As he led me into the back of the store, the light from the outside world fading into a tangled forest of knick-knacks and curios I began to think that perhaps, finally, I had found the place and that this, after all my searching, could be something special. I had been scouring the junk shops, antique dealers, and curio shops of this particular city for over a month, sifting through the myriad and manifold collections of disparate delights looking for that one treasure that would be the centerpiece of my exhibit. I had, it is true, discovered several interesting artifacts amongst the cornucopia of dross and useless things, but nothing that stood out to me as a genuine one of a kind object of curiosity, such as would make visitors to the exhibit gasp or force the tiny hairs on the backs of their necks to stand on end. Now, finally, I hoped, I may have found such an item.The exhibition, 'Creatures, Collections, and Curios' had been booked for months. The idea was to arrange one room of the gallery into the appearance of an old curiosity shop, overlaying and storing a vast array of 'things' from around the world and showing through these tangible, solid objects, the power of narrative. My idea was for the visitor to be able to...
The first time I took revenge on Malcolm Peters I have to admit, I regretted it. Not that he didn't deserve it you understand. There was definitely justification for what I did, but somehow, it felt awkward staining, and wrong. It wasn't even really about him or any concern for how my actions would have affected him. Rather, it was more about me, the way that taking those actions made me feel. That first time, the pleasure in revenge was momentary and pretty soon I began to feel regret at having debased myself, allowing myself to be dragged down to that level. There had been enough of that sort of thing in our family already. The second time, the final time, I felt no remorse. What happened, happened. Nothing can be done about it now and of course, there is no way to prove that I or Ciaco had anything to do with it. I first met Peters in the summer and under the most in-glamorous of circumstances. Taking the job at the burger joint hadn't really been a choice but a necessity. It’s funny, but even now I remember as a kid, visiting the place and watching the staff. Teenagers sprinting from one task to another whilst disgruntled customers on the other side of the counter screamed at them. I remember thinking that I would hate to do that... GET YOUR COPY TODAY!
Like most bad ideas, the whole thing had actually started as a joke. A flippant remark that should really have been swatted away like a persistent fly or left to dissolve into memory like an indistinct blur of the day's other conversations. I should have been, but it wasn't. Instead, the joke became an idea, an idea that grew into a suggestion, and before I knew it, was gathering mass like a snowball rolling downhill, picking up both speed and size the further it was pushed. Within minutes, the joke had grown and mutated into a full-blown plan of action, for which arrangements were already being made. Once the ball gets rolling like that it’s always hard to stop. Bad ideas have a momentum of their own. Morefield was a quiet town, filled, unfortunately, with not so quiet people. The primary forms of entertainment in this tiny rural backwater being either to gossip about other people's intrigues and indiscretions or actively participate in them yourself for the future discussion of others. As a trio, Adrien, Dion, and I had long ago decided to opt-out of...

Tyler Street looked as though it hadn't changed a bit since the last time Byron had been there. Same sidewalk cafe. Same trendy woman's clothing store across the street. Same classy jazz club next door to that. It had been a year since he'd been there, and everything was perfectly in place. Stepping past the jazz club and clothing store, he heard a high-pitched whimper in the background, rising above the traffic's din. It sounded wounded, almost angry. Like a dying goose.Checking the faces of other pedestrians, he wonders why nobody else seemed to notice the sound. They all kept walking, faces casual. Nobody was curious about that tortured wail. Byron shrugged it off, figuring he was just imagining it. Maybe he was distracted by the grim mission that lay ahead of him. He took a seat at the sidewalk cafe, checking the time and rehearsing words in his head he'd already repeated more times than he cared to recall. It's not you. It's me. I just don't think I'm...

This collection includes 5 Stories: "The only plan on the to-do list is to go on a vacation and this plan goes well until...it doesn't. X has a few items ready to keep her company on a solo vacation that ends up being the biggest adventure of her life. It's not what you think. She stays on track but the track ends up somewhere beyond the map. Somewhere out of the entire map. Jerry, on the other hand, finally gets himself to achieve one of the goals he set for himself this year. Just when he thinks it's over, a new chapter opens and he finds out that he probably isn't who he thinks he is. This strange chapter does not reveal much to him but it leads him to someone who will - Jerry. Yes, another Jerry. And so his trip to salvation (or maybe damnation) begins. It is only a matter of days before all roads lead to one point - a place beyond the map. X's pandemonium worsens when Siri, everyone's favourite voice assistant comes to life. Somehow, she has positioned herself in every vital part of X's journey and X is forced to do as she says - because of her dark secret.

"What's the capital of Colombia?" asked Travis, enjoying his turn as the quizmaster for their weekly quiz night. They'd all been friends since childhood, and university wasn't going to change that, even if they were at different ones. Travis had moved to New York while Stefan and Ryan had stayed in their hometown of Mansfield, MA but travelled into Boston for their studies. Sean had moved on campus at Brown University so was only about 30 minutes from Stefan and Ryan. They still tried to see each other often but it was hard for them all to be in the same room at the same time. The weekly zoom quiz was something they all looked forward to.They all grew up together in the town and their parents were all friends, meaning countless sleepovers and games while they grew up. Others had come and gone but their friendship was the only constant. Solid, unchangeable. "Bogota," exclaimed Ryan. "Correct," confirmed Travis. "Another point to Ryan." Ryan was usually the winner of these quizzes as he has an incredible depth of

They entered the old prison. Summer had just started. It was an abandoned prison, just the two of them. Kylie and Destiny. "I don't know why we have to do this." Destiny grumbled. It wasn't the highlight of her day. "I want to see what it looks like on the inside." Kylie whined at her. Kylie was for adventure and Destiny was not. They went through the gate. There was no turning back now. The rusted metal sign "Keep out." Didn't keep them out. Walking up and down the cell blocks it didn't take Destiny long to see that she wanted to get out of there. "Look!" She cried out, her voice echoing off the walls. There were human remains in one of the cells and the more they passed they saw remains of some even clinging to the bars. "You'd think that someone would clean these out." Destiny was shaking. She'd never seen human bones before. They went to the office where the warden would be if it wasn't abandoned. Going through the drawers Kylie found papers that stated the deaths. The pictures were gruesome. There were pictures with the warden smiling next to the dead inmates. "No one had called these in." Kylie gasped, her eyes growing wide. "Cold-blooded murder." Destiny winced. There was a loud banging sound. Like a metal cup running up and down the bars. Someone was singing. "Who could it be?" Destiny asked, whimpering. She was scared...
