• archway with storm

    Hana didn’t notice when the blue sky turned gray and light raindrops pattered against the glass walls. She wandered the corridors for a few minutes, and her mind raced. How was she supposed to preserve an entire world? Where would she travel to first? Hana hadn’t mastered any aspect of her new abilities. She wished ...
  • Flying Eagle

    I want to fly like a bird above the clouds, behind the rising fog and not be seen. Had I known what being seen entails, Had I known what being heard truly means, I would never have bargained to be in the open space. Life would have continued flowing, Floating, Driving me. To places, Without ...
  • moon with trees in front

    A swelling, growing mass of indigo and violet swirled up toward the ceiling. Thick waves of mist slithered across the slick floors, and as they curled around Hana’s legs, the damp clouds kissed her skin. Deep blue settled over the hall until everyone at the table disappeared.

    The leaves crunched loudly as Kayla ran through the trees. She knew this was her only chance to escape. The blue glow was ahead of her and beckoned her to step into it. She turned her head to look back and see if the orb still chased her. Something grabbed her as she stepped into ...
  • sand dunes

    As Hana bolted to her feet, she gasped in the heavy, sticky air. The burning sand covered her arms and legs. She shaded her eyes, blinking the sweat away, and scanned the horizon under the golden sun beating down on her. The sky was a deep teal blue, almost as dark as night against the ...
