Will You Be Back?
Follow the flawless flow, remember?
“Will you be back?” “I don’t think so.” “Ah, I see.” “You know I have to choose.” “Yeah and I respect that. You can come back if things don’t work out.” “I don’t know. If that’s the case, maybe I’ll come back. Maybe not.” “Then I hope things work out for you.” “You don’t want […]
I have the Purple Park for myself and it's all thanks to Miss Alta.
I have the Purple Park for myself and it’s all thanks to Miss Alta. The grass here is purple, hence the name, and it’s as comfy to lie on as a Monday morning bed; like there is an extra incentive for you not to get up, stay for the whole day. The grass doesn’t give […]
No One Comes Here to Browse
The Night Curator is too lovestruck to elaborate.
His engraved name pin on his white coat says “R. Dowell”. People he works with called him Slim Roy or Slim. It’s an apt nickname. He doesn’t mind the nickname albeit Roy rather considers himself as the Night Curator of the gallery he’s working at. As his self-proclaimed status suggests, Roy works and lives his […]

The Math Teacher
“I’ll tell him when it’s time.”
“His math is getting better,” Finn pointed out, “you taught him well.” Vinka pours more wine into her glass, “Least I can do.” “Pfft, yeah right.” “C’mon, Finn. We’re not talking about this again.” “I wasn’t going to, I was just telling you I noticed his math is getting better. But you’re drinking my hard-earned […]
We’re Both Liars
“Oh, I’m a good liar — and so are you.”
Tonight is Bonita and Gema’s third date. Their second was two weeks ago. She’s busy with her study and he’s busy with his work, but both managed to carve up some time from their tight schedule today. Both left early from their appointments and made a conscious decision to go somewhere near Bonita’s dorm. That […]
Sisy, For Lack of A Better Word
“I am asking you not to misuse your eternity.”
“Finally,” said he; his eyes set upon a vast landscape so immensely captivating that a wild thought slipped and emerges in him, trying to convince himself that even though he may not find what he’s searching for, this landscape might as well be worth his journey. In an instant, he rejects such idea that he […]
Kathryn thinks it’s fine if Dante knows too much. It’s not like he can tell on me.
“Cat, any plan this Saturday?” Annie asked me. They called me Cat in the office, a typical and ordinary nickname if your name is Kathryn. Or Catelyn. Or Catherine. Or…you get what I’m trying to say. I don’t hate that nickname – sick of it, probably, but it’s not a big deal. The irony, though. […]
Goddamn Runyx and their portals.
Aisy waited for a fortnight to have her fifteen minutes midnight lunch break with Dr. Karlsson. When their shift aligned and it finally happened, it didn’t even last for ten. Dr. Karlsson didn’t even get the chance to taste her homemade signature chocolate pudding with heavenly vla because a woman carrying a man in her […]
A Happy Ending, If Not A Happy Sequel
It’s sixteen minutes to noon but time doesn’t really matter anymore at this point.
It’s sixteen minutes to noon and Gus’s typing on his laptop like the email company won’t send his replies once the clock strikes lunch hour. The clacking of his keyboard fills his room of glass wall, pushing him to go faster. The faster he types, the faster the replies are sent and he can get […]
