This Is All About Desire And Selfishness – Story 2

Book of Desire

Haven’t I done enough? I asked myself. I’ve worked with this this bloody company for more than twenty years now. They haven’t consider to promote me? A better position? I am much more experienced and understand the company better! This company is my whole life? Can’t they see?

I must get my answer today! I don’t care anymore. I must confront them and made them understand how important I am. I have been a senior assistant for a while now. Ten years if I remember correctly. It was freaking ten years! I should be a manager by now. I should manage this branch! Not some snotty kid that has no real experience. Recently graduated from a top school? Top university? Are you joking? A snobbish kid instead of me whose bone and blood molded with the company?

I did all my best for the company. I came here since I was young. I have no chance on landing job at other places. They took me. The late boss liked me and trusted me. He take good care of me and treat me like his son. But ever since the boss passed away, his daughter just ruined everything! Young people. Young people but no skills!

Barging to the company without consulting me. Without taking my advice. Without trusting me. I was her father’s trusted person. She should treat me better! She should give me the respect that I deserved! Instead… Instead, she forced us more in production. Torturing us mentally with her mind games.

I must do something! It has to be now. I can no longer stand it. This need to stop. I will show her how to run the things here. This is my chance. This is the thing that I should have done long time ago. I need to fix this place. Fix it and take it as mine! By force. By this simple tool in my hand. A gun.

This Is All About Desire And Selfishness – Story 1

Book of Desire.png

I couldn’t rest myself. My mind keep wondering about her. My curiosity feels like an endless hunger that can’t be satisfied easily. The phrase ‘I want to know’ repeats over and over again inside my head. I can’t suppress it because the urge is stronger than my will to fight it. It came uninvited and I just let it in.

I decided to just stalk her. First in Facebook, scrolling through her news feed one by one. I feel shocked as I saw a post with picture of her with someone else. A guy. Who is he? Her boyfriend? No, that is not impossible, she is single. A friend? Why you guys are too close? More than friend perhaps? I couldn’t control my mind that keeps spouting vicious assumptions.

Then I read the comments. It feels like thousand of arrows pierced my body endlessly. It hurts so much that it numb. It hurts so much that I can’t feel the pain except this aching heart. Why? Why? Why? You are supposed to be mine? You should be mine! No! You are mine!

Is it because you are just a friend? Is it because I don’t confess? Am I not good enough? You don’t see me as a company? You don’t see me as someone close? Are you blind? Calm down. Calm down. I need to calm down so I can think what should I do next. The more comments I read, it just burn my fury more. Calm down, I told myself.

I know what I should do for now. Ignore this type of post. Let me stalk something else of you. Oh lovely. Her picture, alone with no one else. You look so lovely and sweet, especially with that wonderful smile. I can’t stop falling in love. I am so attracted to you now. You are the only one I need.

I want you. I want you! I want you so much! I just want to spend myself with you all day, forever and ever! The thoughts filled my head and driving me insane. It showed me happiness. True happiness!

 

MR. LIFELESS PT. 9

Processed with MOLDIV
Processed with MOLDIV

Another ordinary day and our somewhat infamous Mr Lifeless walks slowly to a class. It was early in the morning and his eyes is not yet adapting to the energetic brightness of the morning sun.

There are other students walking to the same faculty and the sound of chatters can be heard overpowering the natural chirping of birds that flew around the area.

“You guys are annoyingly loud…” Her murmured to himself.

It gets louder as he entered the classroom and there are perhaps more than fifty students in the room. He scan the room for his friends and they were sitting on the other side of the room.

“What the heck. That is far… And there are a lot of girls on the front row.” As his thoughts trying to say that it is a nuissance to walk in front of many people because he feel uncomfortable with the eyes that would follow him.

He walks as fast as he can but in a controlled manner so he doesn’t look to obvious.

While he was passing a group of girls, one of them caught his attention. He doesn’t know her or which class she came from. She is somewhat standing out compared to the rest.

Mr. Lifeless went for his seat and greet his friends. He put put down his bag and take out his notes. After everything is on his table, his eyes searched for the gir that caught his attention earlier.

There she was, a girl with the shining black long hair wearing a green baju kurung suits her yellowish fair skin. What a beauty, he thought.

He nudged one of his friend, Mike.

“Dude, do you know that girl?” pointing at her in a group of girls on the front row.

“Which one? There are many girls there,” Mike looking around for the mentioned girl.

“There. The one with the green kurung.”

“Oh. Hurm… Let me check it with the other guys first.”

Mr. Lifeless could not avert his eyes away from the girl. He didn’t even notice the lecturer has entered the room and getting prepared for her class session.

“She is from Mass Comm and her name is Teressa Ling.”

Teressa Ling’s name filled his head and he lose focus throughout the class and could not avert his eyes from staring her. There are times when she noticed and politely smiled back. Mr. Lifeless could not helped to be jumpy and fueled his hopes high.

After the class is over, Mr. Lifeless walk straight to her. Her friends noticed him walking towards their group and back slowly to give her the space.

“Umm… Hi!” Mr. Lifeless opening up first.

“Hi. Yes?” She looks shy and wonder what it is all about.

“I could not help to stare you for the entire class… So, can I be your friend?” He said it shamelessly and being confident about it.

“My friend? I have no problem with that.” Smiling to Mr. Lifeless as if that is the most loveliest smile Mr. Lifeless ever received from someone.

“Great… Great… Can I have your number?” He made the bold move.

“My number? You can have my Facebook instead. That would be pretty cool.”

“Oh really? Sure! So, whats your Facebook name?” Mr. Lifeless pulled out his phone and tapped on the Facebook app from on the screen.

“You can find Teressa Ling. Okay, I gotta go. My friends can’t wait anymore. See ya again.”

“Oh see ya. Take care.” As Mr Lifeless eyed her until she fades away from his sight.

“Alright! Teressa Ling… Teressa Ling… Wait… There are freaking hundreds of Teressa Ling! Damnnnnnnn!”

That moment, Mr. Lifeless felt down on his knees and weep for his misery.

Ally’s Novella And Where To Read Them

mull.png

Hi everyone!

March 2017 is leaving and we will be welcoming April 2017 soon. In my case, less than two hours from the time this post has been published.

A quick recap about this month. It’s actually not the main point about this post, but I feel the need to share it with you all.

I’m proud to share my top post of the month!

Do check them out if you missed them earlier. That’s done for the recap.

Now the main announcement I wanted to share with you guys.

I’ve been keeping a secret from all of you. Well, some of you actually because they are my early readers and I really appreciate the feedback! You know who you are!

So what is the secret? From the title it is obviously a dead giveaway. I wrote a novella. I wrote it last year and managed to complete it by the end of 2016. After that, I’ve been doing some editing and getting feedback from my fantastic readers! I really appreciate it!

After some crazy mentally and physically exhausting editing, I’m ready to show it to the rest of the world! And of course, to my fellow readers and friends! Even so, I have not uploaded all the chapters but don’t panic because I will upload them all next month. Hopefully, it does not take a long time.

The only problem would be, I’m procrastinating or I have internet problem. I can’t give ‘not enough time’ as a reason because I’m practically have all the time I need. Even so, I tend to keep my promises.

So where to read them?

Basically, I’m using Inkitt as my platform instead of other available platform such as Wattpad. Why? Simply because, I am exposed to Inkitt first rather than Wattpad and I’m somehow grow fond of Inkitt.

You can find the link to my story here.

My Unsent Love Letters – Ally L Mare

Inkitt is also available to download in the App Store and Google Play. Just in case you don’t want to read my story, you can read stories by others. Some advice, they are very good and some of them has been published by Inkitt and last year it was listed in Top 100 in Amazon.

Well, that is all for now. I wish you guys have a great month of April! And trust me, this is not a prank.

 

 

Prompt: It was not fair. Why did her sister get to have a horse when she was not allowed to have a dog?

February 25

Use the following sentences as the opening lines of a short story:

It was not fair. Why did her sister get to have a horse when she was not allowed to have a dog?


It was not fair. Why did her sister get to have a horse when she was not allowed to have a dog? Erica could not understand the reason behind her parent’s decision. She is determined, she needs to deal with this matter herself.

Later that night, while everyone has fallen asleep. Erica has been pretending sleeping but now she is awake and slowly living her room. She then heads to the storeroom to grab a machete. Her father usually takes the machete when he travels into the wilds but when he is not, he will usually store it.

After she took the machete, now she heads to the barn. The sky was clear and stars glitter far away. Erica believes that the god is with her. This is the only way to show her parents that they are being unfair to her. An action that will definitely send the message clear. A message that her parents need to understand and stop favoring her sister.

She opened the door to the barn slowly. Not even a creaking sound heard. As soon she entered, she closed the door back. There, she finds her sister’s horse. The horse was kneeling and sleeping.

Erica has plenty of thoughts in her mind but she focused on one right now. To kill the horse with the machete in her hand. She grabbed the machete tighter and move closely to the horse. The horse opened her eyes and started to stand. As Erica noticed the movement from the horse, she raised the machete high and struck the horse as quickly as she can.

The first strike hits the horse’s forehead. The horse neighs and started to jump around and ready to stamp on her. Erica managed to dodge and strike the side of the horse. Blood bursts out and sprayed her. The horse then tries to run ahead but Erica lay down another strike and hit the horse’s leg. The wound was shallow but enough to lead the horse stumble.

The horse falls down and without waiting long, Erica thrust the machete straight to the horse. The machete pierced into the horse’s stomach and blood flows around the machete. Erica feels satisfied and relieved about it.

She finally did it. The clear message that her parent needs to understand. A few moments later the door was opened and her parent was standing and shocked to find their daughter covered in blood and the horse was lying on the ground.

Her mother screamed while her father rushes to her and take her outside. Then, her father asked Erica what happened. Erica just laughs and laugh. Suddenly, a thunder strikes and blinded everyone.

The horse woke up frightened and panic. She realized that it was only a dream. A dream that feels so real that she still remember the machete slashing and piercing her body. She tried to close her eyes when suddenly, the barn door was opened and she saw Erica holding a machete.

Prompt: A construction traffic jam, 8:45 AM

February 21

Using the following setting, write a short story or poem:

A construction traffic jam, 8:45 AM


2012-05-31-db-traffic2jpg-9b6c1f6a61112961
Image from: Syracuse.com

A two lane road. It was jammed because there is a road construction work ahead. He looked at the clock on the dashboard of his car. 8:45 AM. He is late. Way too late because he would already arrived in the office by now. No thanks to this stupid construction they decided to have in a rushing morning hour.

He keeps tapping the steering wheel while listening to the beat from the radio. He have no other choice. He looked through the back mirror and he saw the driver behind his car. The guy looks definitely unsettling and furious.

“Maybe, he is way too late now. Better text your manager now, sir.”

He then turn his head to the right. Another car with silver in color. A female young driver. He guessed that, she was in her twenties. He was staring until she caught him. He smiled shyly. She smiled back.

Then, he heard someone honking him from the back. He looks ahead and the traffic was clearing. He looked to the right one more time and the girl was laughing. He smiles and drive ahead.

Questions popping inside his head. The loudest one would be.

“Will I see her again?”

The Ferry Home

The Daily Prompt by J. C. Cauthon

Image from: TripAdvisor

Using the following setting, write a short story or poem:
the ferry line to your home on the island, 5:00 PM

“You’ll find the ferry to the island will be arriving shortly. At five, which will be here in ten minutes.” Said the man who sells the ticket.

It has been years since he was here. Ten years to be exact. Richard has been away for ten years in order to serve the country. He was stationed very far north by having winter every single day. When the real season arrived, it really kills him to the spine as he was never fond of the cold.

The ticket man was right, the ferry was in time. Without wasting his time, Richard board the ferry and on his way to the place he grew up, together with his family and friends.

“Are you going for a trip here?” Said a man to Richard.

Richard assumed the man was in his forties and a tourist with his family on board.

“No, sir. I’m here to return home. I lived in that island until I was enlisted to the army ten years ago.” Replied Richard.

“Oh, the war was ended years ago was it? We are proud of you and on behalf of the others, we thanked you for your duty, young man. Even so, it must be hard for you.” The man somehow was overjoyed after learning that Richard was in the army, protecting the country from invasion of the North. The war was an ugly one with hundred thousands of deaths.

“Thank you, sir. I’m just doing my best for my country.”

Richard then left the man and sit in a spot where the air is most open. He still remember them clearly, their faces, their voices and the memories they had. His home. His beloved home that none can compare. The warmth and cozy bed. The peaceful nature that surrounded him.

How he missed it all. The past years was harsh and rough. The sound of shots and bombs. The tough terrains. The hard walks. The smells of blood and flesh. The wounds and blisters. Not even close on what he had at home.

If only he can share it with others. How fortunate they are to enjoy long lasting peace. How fortunate they are to sleep on their comfy bed. Waking up having breakfast, lunch and dinner. Fully stocked food in the fridge. How not to be grateful with all the blessings that they cannot even count.

At least now, once he reached home. He will finally feel the peace. Once more.
