It was my house. My home. My safe place.  Beep Beep Beep Beep. I rolled over to check my alarm only to find the inevitable. The clock face read 6:30 AM, also known as my least favorite time of the day. I dragged my drained body out of my bed and witnessed my insufferable appearance in the ba...

I met her in the field. She looks me up and down and opens her mouth. Her words sound like screeching bats flying out of a cave. Don’t wear boots. Don’t. You need to run, run, run, run, go, get out of there, running shoes. “Why am I running? What am I running from?”  She stares at me, her eyes cloudy lik...
