ASAS: Survival of the Fittest–Chapter Five

Ryan held his breath. The sound of shuffling feet and the occasional throaty growl could still be heard. At least they weren’t hammering on the side of the shack anymore. He looked across the room towards the shivering Kas whose breathing was becoming increasingly laboured. That was all he needed, to soon be sharing the … Continue reading ASAS: Survival of the Fittest–Chapter Five

Another Apparition (Poem)

Once again, I was fooled, By the bringer of the light; They held a torch aloft, To brighten up my night. They assured me they were genuine, As they held me in embrace; I allowed the glow to fill my soul; To set smiles upon my face. Little did I realise, They were just like … Continue reading Another Apparition (Poem)

New Year, New Me, Same Old Lies… (Poem)

His form adorns the mirror glass; Unhappy. Within himself; At himself. It’s November. Too late to change. “Leave it ‘til New Year,” He says. “No point in doing it now.” He continues; The same burden of dissatisfaction, Continually weighing him down. December comes. Christmas. New Years Eve. All pass in a flash. January 1st. The … Continue reading New Year, New Me, Same Old Lies… (Poem)

ASAS: Survival of the Fittest–Chapter Two

A quick sweep got rid of all lurchers remaining in the office building, though nobody was especially happy about staying there. There were two sofas in the lobby and that was about as luxuriant as it got. Uncomfortable computer chairs were the only other seats available. More to the point, there was no food aside … Continue reading ASAS: Survival of the Fittest–Chapter Two

ASAS: Survival of the Fittest–Chapter One

The truck rumbled into another town midmorning the next day. It was just as well because they were practically running on fumes. The town was big enough to assume there’d be a petrol station and places in which to find food. The only problem was that there were lurchers—a lot of them! Kas had run … Continue reading ASAS: Survival of the Fittest–Chapter One

ASAS: Survival of the Fittest–Prologue

Not one person sat in the truck could quite get a handle on how the situation at New Haven, a situation that had seemed so perfect, had gone awry so quickly. Less than a week ago it had been the ideal safe zone, a properly run and maintained community. Now it was about to fall, … Continue reading ASAS: Survival of the Fittest–Prologue

Balance (Flash Fiction)

She thought she had it all worked out. The good, hard-working, well-off man was the perfect meal ticket. The fact that the innocent seed growing within her had been planted by another less desirable sort was of no consequence to her, nor him for that matter. They had carried on regardless, both reaping the benefits … Continue reading Balance (Flash Fiction)

He’d clung onto a vain hope that she might change her mind after a little time to think. It became apparent rather soon that she definitely wasn’t … Continue reading Find Me a Find–Chapter Twenty-Six

Catch up with previous chapters by clicking this link. He was just trying to be funny. At least that was what he told himself. His pride refused to allow him to admit that what he’d said was fuelled by pure envy; that there had been nothing funny or jokey about it. Why wouldn’t she just … Continue reading Find Me a Find–Chapter Twenty-Five

Afresh (Flash Fiction)

I turn the key, open the door and enter the flat that I don’t yet recognise: my new home. The light within is dull, even though it’s daytime and the curtains are open. Or perhaps that’s just the way I’m seeing everything right now. Doom and gloom abound. Over the last few months, I’ve managed … Continue reading Afresh (Flash Fiction)
