She sat in class pulling out her hairs one by one. NODEEEEEEEEEEEE she said.
"What?" said the boy beside her with the dashing smile.
I ... CANT... DO .... IT.. she managed to blurt out, while squeezing the mouse with impressive force.
"Can I help in any way?" He replied pulling his chair closer to hers.
She blushed a little, and prayed he didn't notice
"It's this project, I just don't get it" She pointed at the screen trying to draw attention away from her face.
"Well, maybe you just need to take a break" he said. He pulled out a notebook and started sketching something. "What are you drawing there?" she asked, her attention now completely off the work she was attempting to do. "Im drawing you." He replies, with a sly smirk on his face.
"MEE?" she said her face feeling very hot now "Can I see? " she said and tried to reach for the book he was drawing in.
He quickly pulled it away from her "Not till it's done"
She fidgeted with her phone feeling a strange combination of gitty, and shy and unsure of what to do with herself.
After what felt like hours he finally turned the… Read More

this is a third test
This is a fourth test.
It all began with a test but young James knew that. It seemed like getting to the test was almost impossible. In his head he kept saying the words "this is a test", "this is a second test","this is a third test" and the numbers kept getting higher without anything being said.
As he navigated the maze of hallways that lead to the Test Room, the numbers grew higher and higher, faster and faster, inside his head. There were so many corridors and stairways... was there usually this many stairs? He was just beginning to think he was thoroughly lost, when he saw the big red sign that read "TEST ROOM" above a shiny steel door.
He paused for a moment unsure whether or not to enter, behind this door could await the key to his dreams and success, but equally possible could be his imminent death.
Slowly he creaked the door open and within he discovered a pitch black room he stepped inside and the door quickly snapped shut behind him. Startled he tried the door, it was locked.
"Come down dear, there is nothing to be afraid… Read More

A sister and brother wake up in a forest and dont realize 100 years have passed since they have been gone.
"Hey, you awake?"
Mitch says, as he nudges Caras shoulder, attempting to wake her.
Cara mumbles, still half asleep on the dew covered grass of the forest.
"We should start heading home, I have no idea how long we've been out here, and Mother will be worried if we aren't home by dusk."
Mitch helps his sister to her feet, and they start off walking through the dense evergreens.
About an hour passes, and the sun has nearly set when Mitch stops, running his fingers through his hair exasperatedly.
"What is it?" Cara asks.
"I know these woods like the back of my hand," Mitch says, "but everything seems different. It just doesn't make sense..."
"Are we lost?" Cara asks nervously.
"Don't worry, I'll get us home," Mitch replies, avoiding a straight answer, and he sets off again, but the confidence in his voice is not matched in his face.
As the continue through the trees, the sun goes down, and the path they're following gets quickly more and more difficult to see.
"We're definitely lost now." Cara stops, her hands on her hips. Mitch sighs, forced to admit he doesn't know the woods as well as he thought, but as he turns to face his… Read More
Added by JeffA designer and his trust companion go on an adventure to find a missing script.
It was a gloomy October Morning, the sun had yet to come out and Jeff, and his friend Ben felt the weight of monotony hang over them as they plugged through there various tasks for the day. A few hours past when Jeff finally stuck his head up and inquired to his partner Ben. "Ben, Where did the script for this project go?" Ben looked at him confused. Being a designer he rarely ventured into the land of scripting and would certainly never take or delete one.
"I most certainly have no idea where the script could have gone!" Ben replied, "I suggest we ask Batman, he should be able to help us find it."
"That's not a bad idea!" Jeff replied "But I have no idea where he might be.. Where would such information be kept?"
"Well, I have Robin's cell number somewhere." said Ben, "let's give him a call."
Ben pulled out his cell phone and began dialing the number. Meanwhile Jeff looked at him skeptically. "YOU HAVE A CELL PHONE?" to which Ben replied, "I have the number of a super hero, and you're first concern is that I now own a cell.." He replied snidely "While… Read More
There was once a man who didn't have a name.
Though he had been born to loving parents, these parents were not whom he was raised by now. He had been born to a dark time in a country so over-populated they had taken to killing those who had more then 1 child. His parents were mortified by such a concept and so one night they took him to a nearby port and hid him upon a cargo ship. Though he chances were slim they knew it was the only way they would be able to save him.
Until one day some noisy drunk came along and asked "What are you doing on this ship?" "You are far to skinny to work and seem very scared." The kid then replied " my parents sent me on this stupid ship because I have a thirst for human blood and flesh."
"A taste for human blood you say? Well how is it you get human blood if you're much to tiny to kill a man? Do you scavenge the bodies of the dead?"
"No I just hunt and pray my victims until the perfect moment." The boy replied. He had… Read More

What if you pulled an onion out of the ground, and it had eyes!?
It would pull you down to the underworld of onions, where all the onion people live in a vast network or torch-lit caverns, of course.
Follow young Julie on just such an adventure, and explore the endless mysteries beneath an ordinary farm.
Julie didn't like onions.
Her parents were onion farmers, and were famous for their legendary fat, sweet, juicy onions. (Some as big as your head!) Every Saturday they would take a cart piled high with onions to the market, and sell every single one, then they would go home and eat onions for dinner, and after 15 years of this routine, Julie was definitely sick of onions. She would be quite content to never see another one for the rest of her life.
This was unlikely to happen though, since it was Friday morning, and her mother was rapping on her bedroom door singing the onion picking song. "Coming mom!" she groaned and dragged herself out of bed, dressed, and ambled downstairs. Her mom had already served her a plate of fried eggs (and onions) which she munched down.
"Dad is out getting Jack ready, meet us in the east field when you're ready, ok?"
"Mmkay" she replied, her mouth still full.
A few minutes later, Julie had her boots on, and was walking out to the east field. She could see Jack the donkey, with the onion cart behind him, and her parents, both hard at work picking the ripest, fattest and juiciest… Read More
