God once gave just one man one wish. This man wished for someone that would be forever beautiful; to be in love eternally- that was his one wish. God granted this wish and the man lived madly and deeply in love for many lifetimes. He sat with his lover in orbit  and watched Redwood trees grow from saplings, existing sturdy for 2,000 years, never needing to budge because trees get it right the first time, but even a tree grows weary after two decades. The man and his lover watched …

The fair happens during the hottest time of the year—early August—when air conditioners run non-stop and a sedative quiet emanates from deserted streets. It’s during this time when activity begins to stir at …

After purchasing the item she began to peruse the other stores in case something else might catch her fancy.  As she walked slowly from one store to the next browsing, …

Darkness,silent,ebony,velveteen,soft as a lover’s kiss.I awake slowly,cast my gaze upon this silken nothingness,finding some relief within,aware of little else other than the absence of sound around me.I feel soft folds of cloth at my fingers,the soft caress of my hair against my cheek;perhaps this darkness has sharpened my awareness more than normal. The clock’s red dial informs me it is twelve past noon,although the room beyond the velveteen curtain is nearly as dark as night itself.I don’t like daylight,I never have,it seems so unnaturally bright,so..bare and open,if you will.There is …

It was strange to her, all the new smells and colures. Ever since the accident, all around her had been transformed from cool blues and placid whites to deep reds, yellows and earthy browns.

Even the sounds had changed, for example rite now he was playing vitamin C by Can, a song she had never thought of listening too before now. Never the …

The snow fell softly against the windowpane,swirling and whispering against the glass as it settled to the street below,a soft white carpet of silent,glittering whiteness.Nothing moved beyond the glass,and only a few lights were visible here and there among the other buildings across the street.The lone figure behind the glass withdrew with a small sigh,wiping delicate hands on a towel the color of the snow before pulling a soft blue curtain across the empty view. The weather forecast the night before,of course,had made no mention of snow,or even of overly …

Thousands years ago, the ancient prehistoric nomads arrived on the continent, that in the future was given the name of America.

There were born eleven children, these eleven children grew up and married each other, and from them …
