Chapter one: The beginning

Right now I am in a military base in Michigan but you don't think I was just there no. I had to walk 850 miles from Kearney Nebraska to get here and it was not easy being thirteen no less but let's go to the start of this story.It was a Sunday morning and I got up and said hi to the people awake in my house. Later I got my
computer and started watching videos for some time but then I got an alert on my computer to stay indoors and dont go outside. I was kind of scared about it and went to my mom to tell her about it and she said not to worry. If only that were true. Later my dad divorced my mom but I still see him every other weekend. He came over with supplies and of course guns, ...

You look at me through lidded eyes...
Your smile loud and very wide...
Your teeth are sharp and your mind is hazed...
Alcohol is all you've drank for days...

Your hands are cut and my face is bloody...
Your boots are steel and my hands are muddy...

Brooke and Mason have known eachother since forever. Mason was always there for her, and Brooke doesn't know what she would do without him.

Me and Mason had been
neighbors since I moved to delphos, our bedroom windows faced each other until my mom made me switch when I started middle school.

I didn't complain, this bedroom made it easier to sneak out using the roof. Mason used to always sneak me out with him at night, not so much anymore.

We still see each other, still do things together, but its not the...

The teacher was once again lecturing us, what for? I have no idea, but then again, I don't care either. I just continued to listen to my music. The bell finally rang, but before I could leave, the teacher asks for me and some pigtailed freshie to stay after class. After a few minutes, the room was empty. " I asked you two to stay because you were the only
ones to pass Monday's quiz." Shocker, I pass every quiz and test. "Okay so, I always pass" "Well, you see the quiz was on things that I haven't taught yet" "Is that all," I say, heading towards the door. "No actually, It's not" I stop and turn to face him. "I'm not sure if you two know but the school's academic team needs one more person to compete..." "Let me...

AURORA-
That night, shivered I with a frosted soul. Aggrieved by your dismay, buds and weeds, wheeched it all. Pricked, was all I felt. How could I reprehend thyself, how would I scourge myself? Sought I no shrine, besieged by thy gratuitous perforate. Felt I addled, with extirpating lenitive. The desert of treachery embraced me tight, where despondency was
the knight. Yet gladdened was I, for the desert's sun took my tears, and it rained finally after yesteryears; where arrived my aurora by.

QUILT-
In the quilt of roses, lied I, muffled in a teary envelop; with a sigh. The moist firmament halted its downpour; for it allowed me to fill mine. The greenish woods, quietened in obduracy; so that can whine I. W...

Lost in the wild forests, a perturbed Liza is trying to seek help by shouting at the top of her voice, but alas! It seems her friends left to a further distance. “Oh Good Lord”, murmured the girl. “What am I going to do, all alone, lost in the dense woods?” It started getting darker and darker, as nightfall grew closer. The skies enclosed upon
themselves, while the sun rays dimly faded through the way. Liza was all petrified by the sounds heard all over the woods. She even lost her phone, hence no way to contact whosoever. She started sobbing profusely when a voice quietly asked, “Are you okay?”. Liza turned fearfully, and saw a young lad, clad in casuals, anxiously looking at her. She felt as if sh...

Macey was probably tired on the night that it happened. It was so long ago anyway. She was at the dancing hall with her parents. Why her mother and father decided to bring an 8-year-old girl to a place where couples danced in old-fashioned clothes, she didn’t know. She was bored, very bored. She didn’t notice there was anything wrong until after everyone
was panicking.
Macey watched as a man picked up her grandmother’s hand, “Dead.” No one said anything. Not when her mother picked her up and brought her home. Not even when her parents tucked her in. You don’t talk to kids about things like that. Macey thought that she would never have to think about her grandmother’s death in that dancing hall a...

Yesterday

Yesterday

Author Natalia Zagrebina-Wirth
translated by Igor Step
Yesterday I turned 90 years old. I look back on the past – it’s like a lizard’s tail that sticks to me until the time comes, and then it will disappear as if it has never happened to me.
The children became adults long ago. They are not close, not even in this country. I remember the
youth. Now, where are the women who used to be envious of my and my husband’s state summer house? He was a general. Stalin himself gave me the ring with an eight-grainer. Not long ago I gave it to a jeweler so that he would polish it thoroughly.
Where are all those who have gone like the wind?
And where will I be in some four or eight years?
Our garden p...

Distrain

Author Natalia Zagrebina-Wirth
translated by Igor Step
What is it here?
Well...
Coats, five ones.
A turquoise slim-waisted one with flared bottom.
A gray one, a raspberry-red one with ruffles. A dark blue one...
Skirts. With a broad waistband and a bow. The one with a flowy bottom when walking.
Rings. Five gold ones and five silver ones. With
gemstones. False ones.
But they sparkle well. Especially now at sunset.
A photo...
What’s in it?
Half-turned. The hair is streaming in the breeze. Young. With her arms sideways.
And down there the grass is waving. The arms... are so much more precious than the rings. Live young arms. And blood is running and running in the veins.
What else?
A buffet, a com...

The First Breath

The First Breath

Author Natalia Zagrebina-Wirtz
translated by Igor Step
Two women and a girl checked in at 4 pm in a fashionable hotel in Nice called "Sea Meeting", the same one located on the old street Promenade des Anglais, built in 1856 by the French architect François Aune. The girl's name was Letizia. She turned fifteen last Friday and felt like she was quite an
adult. She was slight of figure, rather tall, with short, dark curly hair and plush lips. The women accompanying were her mother, Mariel, an always engaged in some tasks, fussy, forty-two-year-old woman. It seemed that she never did care about her appearance – she usually wore her hair in an inexpressive bun and dressed in long sweatshirts going back up to 10...

When the rival is silent

Author Natalia Zagrebina-Wirtz
translated by Igor Step
This was the second time that day, or rather, for the period from nine in the morning to two in the afternoon. Just think! Meeting in elevator with a beautiful stranger with her head arrogant raised. She did not even stir once and make a single sound during those 10 seconds while elevator went down!
For the first time, in the morning, Lauren only shot a glance at her. But right now, having entered the elevator during lunch time, she managed, in the corner of her eye, to get a good look at her and noted to herself that she was unusually handsome. The stranger had luxurious brown hair with a golden shine of tight curls hanging like heavy avalanche down her ...

Down to earth Sally Superhalk

Charity Wishmonger looked at the spotty teapot in her hands and felt jumpy.

She walked over to the window and reflected on her wild surroundings. She had always loved crowded Truro with its wandering, wasteful waters. It was a place that encouraged her tendency to feel jumpy.

Then she saw something in the distance, or rather someone. It was the figure
of Sally Superhalk. Sally was a down to earth dolphin with brunette arms and curvaceous feet.

Charity gulped. She glanced at her own reflection. She was a brave, giving, brandy drinker with wide arms and ruddy feet. Her friends saw her as a vast, vacant volcano. Once, she had even rescued a naughty blind person from a burning building.

But not even a b...
