ClippedThey've clipped my wings
to keep me grounded
And grounded I have been
since they clipped my wings.
Once I flew
but I fly no more;
They've clipped my wings.
Dead Space Fanfiction[Raevyn: (Whispered, staring into nothingness) "I believe I can see the future..." Isaac: (looks at Raevyn, shifts forward) "Raevyn?" Raevyn: "'cause I repeat the same routine, I think I used to have a purpose... But then again, (looks questioningly into nothingness, as if trying to recall) that might have been a dream." Isaac: "Raevyn, are you okay?" Ellie: "What is she saying?" Raevyn: "(clutches throat) I think I used to have a voice, (hand comes up to make a shush gesture)now I never make a sound... (hand falls onto her lap) I just do what I've been told, I really don't want Them to come around, (shakes head) oh no..." (Ellie and Isaac become tense, eyes fixed on Raevyn) Ellie: "Them? Who are they?" (Raevyn, still lost in her own world, continues) "I can feel their eyes are watching (looks around, eyes shifty).... In case I lose myself again (bows head further). (looks up, tilted) Sometimes I think I'm happy here... Sometimes, yeah, (smiles to herself) I still pretend. (looks frust
Generation Z-Genocide Y["I'm so sorry sweetie..." My Grandmothers piercing blue eyes looked at me, an unbearable sadness behind them. "For what? What's going on Grandma?" "That is a long story my dear." Confused I tried to press my Grandmother further, upset to see her so sad. Something in her eyes scared me. "Grandma, please tell me, you can tell me anything." The steady beeping of the heart monitor filled her silence as she looked down at her hands, as if ashamed. She sighed and shook her head. Her tight white curls bounced on top of her head. "I'm afraid this is something I cannot share..." She sighed again but this time she gave me a regretful half smile. "I....I want you to promise me something Dawn." She reached out with her trembling old hands and took in mine. I looked down, unable to meet her gaze, but she grabbed my face and turned my head toward her steady fierce eyes, which were filled with what appeared to be angry tears. Suddenly I couldn't speak, but seeming to understand my silence
The Storm[A storm is raging outside, but inside a large farmhouse, a girl is getting ready for bed. Toweling off her wet face and pulling back the sheets of her white cotton bedding. She throws the towel into her hamper and lies down. After reading for a while, she puts the book down and tries to get some sleep. She lies awake for a little longer listening to the storm, the storm that hides the sounds of her intruders. A little later we can see the girl sleeping soundly when lightning flashes and thunder booms. We can see somethings eyes glow in her open closet during that quick flash, lurking. The thunder wakes her with a start, she calls out for a parent, but nobody is home yet. She turns to go back to sleep, and a shadow creeps out of her closet and to her bedside. More shadows from around her bedroom slither to surround the bed. The beds canopy curtains sway as the creatures breathe on each of them. Lightning booms again and we can see the four creatures hovering inches above the floor in b
The Wolf[Snow is falling on the already coated ground. A blizzard is starting. Car lights flash in the distance and steadily grow larger, getting closer. Something blocks the lights from left to right. You see the car lights turn and soon after see the taillights, indicating the car has spun out due to whatever passed by. The car slams into a snow embankment. Slowly we pan up to the vehicle, being sure to see movement inside the car and outside in the woods. We should be able to see a light in the car like a cell phone being used. Slight mumbling should be emitted. We pan up to the window and see the driver. It's a man in his late twenties. Since the car nor him are injured he decides to get out and look for the animal he clipped with his car. Stumbling to get out of his car, he doesn't notice the animals eyes in the woods to the right of him. He hears a low sound and turns his attention to the woods. A wolf steps out of the treeline and bares his teeth to the man. Scared the man scrambles to
The Following[A woman is walking quickly though her home, checking to make sure the stove is off, lights are off, etc. She picks up her car keys, purse and jacket. She takes another look around her living room just before reaching the door. She gives the foyer one last longing glance, shuts the door and walks to her car, which is packed full of boxes and suitcases. She gets behind the wheel of her car, starts it up and peels out. She drives as fast as she dares down the winding highway and down the coast. A little down the coast we pan to a view of her driving with trees behind and to the right of her. A huge explosion booms from behind her in the distance and we see a mushroom cloud rise up from behind the trees. She looks terrified and presses her accelerator down further. Hours later, we can tell by the sunset, she pulls over along the side of an abandoned looking road near an old gas station. She cautiously gets out of her car and goes into the store. Among the canned food isle, a shadow passes
