The knocking sound had been coming and going in my engine, and I had a feeling that my Nissan Stanza was about to die. In the back of my mind was a tiny voice screaming that it was over sixty miles to the next town...

Curiosity is quite simply a bitch, but me being me, adventurous to the point I become stupid, let my curiosity roam free. I should probably give you some background first, so you understand what I'm about to tell you better. I live in a...

The two men, perched on a steep hillside, watched from a safe distance as an invading army destroyed the city below them. The towering stone wall that protected the city, once strong and unbreakable, couldn't hold back the onslaught. Even over the sounds of war,...

Mulder85: 1850; 10/10/2014 Okay, so long time lurker here, first time poster. I know that this whole forum is dedicated to UFOs and alien fandom in general, but I have to ask. Who here has ever actually seen a...

There is something wrong with me. I cannot hide it anymore. I fear my family suspects that something is not quite right with me. They reach out to me, but I pull away. If they came too close, they would know I am different and...

โ€œThere was a little man in my room last night, and he says heโ€™s going to take me with him.โ€ I glanced up from my cereal in surprise and fixed Mabel, the light of my life as well as my only daughter, with my best fatherly...

โ€œOn lonely street, on a dark lonely nightโ€ฆโ€ She sang softly to herself as she walked, hands clasped behind her back clutching her purse. โ€œA thousand glittering lights flicker brightโ€ฆโ€ ...

โ€œSo what time you gonna be here?โ€ Tyler asked me impatiently, his voice obviously frustrated. โ€œCause, like, the stormโ€™s gonna hit any second and I wanna get dinner cooked now in case the power goes out.โ€ I glanced up at the gray sky from underneath my...

I awoke on the day of my reconstruction. Grogginess left my body like a rusted machine. The room seemed to stretch for miles in my drowsiness, an eternal void that I lay in the center of. I reached my arm as far left as I...

Friday 13th November, 2015. At 3:42pm GMT, it happened. The world descended into a sudden, complete darkness. Chaos ensued. In our little office on the 10th floor, we huddled together in that ominous pitch black, awaiting the light. There was a television in our break room, and...

To Whom It May Concern I don't know your name and you do not know mine. That's just as well, because I have tried to speak with you these many times before as you leave for work, get your mail, bring your children home from school,...

โ€œAlright, kids,โ€ the counselor announced, a devilish grin stretching across her face. โ€œYou know what time it is!โ€ Jack nodded vigorously, bouncing up and down with excitement. He had been waiting for this moment all day. โ€œThatโ€™s right!โ€ she responded. โ€œItโ€™s time for our scary story competition!...

Juliet stood on the sidewalk, hands on her hips, and stared at the house. How depressing. Her Aunt Camilla had passed away just three short months ago. An aneurysm or stroke is what the doctors had said. Camilla had been in her nineties and a...

I always thought that I was pretty safe from most things since I was living on a military base. The past recent events have proved otherwise. My name is Seaman Murphy, U.S. Navy and Iโ€™m writing this to warn future sailors or anyone in the...

Nippy. Itโ€™s just a smidgen nippy outside. Perfect. I think to myself as I walk through the late autumn air. โ€œI estimate that itโ€™s in the low fifties or high forties.โ€ I say to no one in particular. No one at all actually. I, of...

The blazing gold sun wanes in the sky over the still lake, its light rays coming down, touching the water and the land stretching beyond it. As the wondrous ball of light sinks into the horizon, bushy-tailed deer frolic through the grassy plains, running across...
