There Was a Boy

There was a boy, he sat alone at an empty table at a café.

There was a boy, his eyes seemed to lack a certain twinkle.

There was a boy, he always kept his head lowered, eyes on the bank pages in front of him.

There was a boy, his lips never curved up into a smile.

There was a boy, he had blue eyes that only held sadness.

There was a boy, his heart was split into a million pieces.

There was a boy, he heard nothing but silence.

There was a boy, his tears flowed down his cheeks everyday.

There was a boy, he always felt helpless.   Continue reading

The Rain

By: Shanzida Khandaker

“I’m telling you Jase, the rain has vowed to pour until the world is flooded,” Aron moaned into the phone as he lightly banged his head on the on the headboard of his bed. It had been raining nonstop for the past two days but to Aron it felt more like years.

“Air, you’re over reacting mate,” Jase answered, and though Aron couldn’t see, he knew that his best friend was rolling his eyes.

“Don’t roll your eyes at me Jase – no, don’t even try to say you weren’t rolling your eyes Mr.- but seriously, this rain is so- so- I don’t know, so not rad,”

“Okay, first, don’t ever say ‘rad’ again, you sound stupid,”

“Duly noted,” Continue reading

The Story of The King, Nazmus, and the Computer

I found a story that I don’t remember writing. It’s cute and short and it was funny, so here it is! 🙂

Once upon a time there was a boy named Nazmus. Nazmus was a very smart person that loved computers. One day, the king called him into the castle to ask for help on the kings’ computer named boo. Nazmus thought that the king was stupid and knew exactly how to fix the computer. He told the king “Your highness, have you tried turning it off and back on?” The king looked at him with an evil eye. “You think I’m a fool! You shall be beheaded.” So Nazmus was beheaded. That night, the king sat in his layer and thought about what Nazmus had said. He went up to his computer and turned it off and back on. To his surprise, it started working. “Oh, so Nazmus was right, my bad.”

Ditch the Whole Scene

By Roe Gibson

Eponine thunks her head against the window of Cosette’s car. How did she end up here, in this too-clean, too-new, “papa-insisted-on-paying-for-all-of-it”, cutie-mobile? Rain pitter-patters against the car, and the blonde hops into driver’s seat next to Eponine with a bright smile.

“Sorry about that!” she chirps, still grinning. She’s referring to how long it took her to shake off her dad’s overprotective checklists and reminders. “I’m so glad you agreed to come with me- he’d never let me go otherwise.” Eponine leans to look out the window at Cosette’s classy apartment building. Sure enough, her father is standing outside as the doorman holds the door open for him with a sort of grimace. He waves eagerly, and Eponine returns the gesture awkwardly. Continue reading
