Adversity hit me at an early age. At three years old, my mother became ill, she decided to peregrinate to those deep antique Turkish baths on the outskirt of the mansion to revive herself in sultry steamy natural water, so she can feel good and salubrious again. To my hurt, those places are not built for minor kids. At the request of my father, my mother took me with her. This huge architectural structure gave me the creeps. In addition to that I found myself left in the alcove of this mural square with deep natural rectangular shape space. In the center of this place, merges sultry a steamy source of natural dihydrogen monoxide that holds a myth for years as a miracle remedy for the body and heart. It was plenary of women relishing the relaxing
He walked down the bleak hallway every morning, with his face staring at the ground. He heard whispers as he walked through the narrow pathway. He kept asking himself why he was different from the others. This was the life of Eddie Huang, and in many ways we led the same life. Most of us have come across a time in our lives when we did not feel like we belonged in a certain group. My parents moved to America when i was twelve. I barely understood the language and had a tough time fitting in. A character that I share similar experiences with is Eddie from the T.V. show Fresh Off The Boat. Eddie and his family also moved to an area where the community was not very diverse. Eddie and I have experienced similar situations as we both grew up in neighbourhoods where we were outsiders.
“Wuff Wuff...I’m no trick!” barked Curly frantically as the rainbow slowly opened up and out stepped Curly, jumping up and down and all over Blacky and Tru.
One sunny fall morning with no wind and the sound of the birds chirping and the blaring of the news my mom’s water broke. “Jade and Jake let's go.” Vroom” off we go to the hospital. I wonder will today be a good day or a bad day?
Are you looking for that beastly house that just jumps right out at you? If so prowl on down here to the corner of 13th Street and Devil Road. Just the exterior of the house will be sure to rattle your bones. The rows of the shambles of barren trees on either side of the road, that lead up to your impending doom that lurks within the caverns of the fractured house that will surely collapse at any given moment. The mangled arms of the barren trees you grab you by the neck, they will doubtlessly leave you hanging. If that isn't enough to put you in a gruesome mood just take a look at the dismantled remains of the old rose bushes. They line the morbid fence, which surrounds the house keeping those naive children, that had no soul, away from

Cara walked into the wind and felt it gently push back. A few more steps and she would be at the edge of the cliff. Her focus was on the thistle, the prickly dark green plants that crunched beneath her feet. What would happen to these plants during the Bleak? Would they wither and die, or would they simply lie dormant, waiting for the first slithers of sunlight to peek up from the horizon? She had asked those who had been through this before but no one would discuss it. No one talked about the Bleak even though it was almost upon them. Cara took a deep breath of the cold sea air. When the sun vanished it would get even colder. Everything would freeze- at least that’s what people said at school. In any case, by the time that happened
In a bright blue house on a quiet street lived Jim and Lily. They were brother and sister and very close in age. They were rivals and didn’t get along, because Jim felt his parents gave more attention to Lily.
Crash. One, two, no, three plates hit the floor. I could for all intents and purposes feel my spirit drain from my body as that sound rung throughout the restaurant. I paused for a moment to recollect my thoughts, looking up to see a collection of dirty plates, bowls, and pans stacked nearly a foot high on the shelf and beginning to collect around my feet as there was nowhere else to put them. With a stack of plates so tall, the grease had allowed a plate to slip and take several others with it to crash onto the stone floor. Ah yes, this was dinner hour, the busiest hour of the night, on Friday, the busiest day of the week in general, and it was my first week on the job. Straightaway came the manager, Rachel, as well as a few of my coworkers. She looked to see glass scattered
People we love leave us too soon. It is even harder when the death is unexpected. Most of us feel shock and disbelief when we are informed about the death of a loved one. People assume that their family and friends will reach old age, however, it is not uncommon for death to come sooner whether it is through accident or illness. In March, my uncle passed away due to a tragic accident at his workplace. It has been five months since his passing and I am still having a difficult time coping with his death. These past five months have been accompanied by sleepless nights and numerous depressing thoughts and feelings.
I'm driving a blue sport convertible, with the top down, up the side of a mountain. I look to my right and notice how high up I am. I suddenly get this rare sense of acrophobia, so I let off the gas and press the brakes. As I press the breaks, I abruptly speed up instead of slowing down. I try pressing the gas and letting off the breaks to see if it will reverse the effects but nothing happens. As I look up ahead, I notice a dangerous cliff sign...and I'm racing straight towards it. My heart is in my throat as I try to turn the steering wheel but it won't budge.
