Biggest Fan, pt.8 by Heather Taylor

“What are you up to for New Year’s?” Ceri asked Tasmin. The year was coming to an end and almost everyone was locked up in their houses without a will for much else, munching their way through mountains of leftover roast turkey and wallowing in wintery confusion. All offices and small companies were closed until… Continue reading Biggest Fan, pt.8 by Heather Taylor

Biggest Fan, pt. 7 by Heather Taylor

A couple walked hand in hand, shoulder to shoulder, through the miserable British weather. Typical. August was the month of sun, beach trips and burnt skin – not drizzling rain and grey clouds, which were crowding overhead. Yuni held a decorative umbrella above them both, absent-mindedly twisting the pink shaft in her free hand. The… Continue reading Biggest Fan, pt. 7 by Heather Taylor

Past Striked The Present by Nermeen Naveed

After listening to his words, I felt the ground slipping away from under my feet. It felt like history was repeating itself by playing its sick games with me, again. I knew that he was waiting for my reaction while the others waited for my reply but I was so consumed by the sense of… Continue reading Past Striked The Present by Nermeen Naveed

Biggest Fan, pt. 6 by Heather Taylor

“Oof!” Neither of them truly knew who had grunted – him, her or his guitar? “I am so sorry!” The young man exclaimed, eyes widening as he saw the damage he and his guitar had just caused. Ceri had been smacked flush against the wall by the neck of his black electric guitar. Her ticket,… Continue reading Biggest Fan, pt. 6 by Heather Taylor

Biggest Fan, pt. 5 by Heather Taylor

“Five minutes remaining, everyone. Fi-i-i-i-i-i-i-i-ive…minutes.” Half of the students in the sports hall frantically flicked through their physics paper while the other half, those who had already given up within the first thirty minutes of the exam, mentally groaned with the great effort of staying awake even longer. Bella was among the second half. She… Continue reading Biggest Fan, pt. 5 by Heather Taylor

Biggest Fan, pt.4 by Heather Taylor

Ceri's shoulders tensed and she sucked in a sudden breath as a harsh pitter-patter of hot rain hammered down on her back. There was no time to wait for the water to steady and reach an acceptable temperature, the school bus was to arrive in less than half an hour and Ceri had procrastinated through… Continue reading Biggest Fan, pt.4 by Heather Taylor

Fevers of the Sleepless by Afrah Bari

Twisting and turning is all I seem to be doing lately.  Grabbing at the sheets, so they replace the warmth that you stole. Drifting into an uneasy dream, constantly brushing off the sweat on my brow. Waking up to a silent house isn't as relaxing as people make it out to be. I was told… Continue reading Fevers of the Sleepless by Afrah Bari

Todd the Toad, pt.2 by George Butcher

They were walking towards Squirrel Fishnets’ house. Todd hadn’t really said 'come with me', and Mrs Tiddles hadn’t just disappeared inside for her thick walking shawl for going out just like that either; in fact they exchanged a rather unaesthetic dialogue for some time. This may have included Todd going totally against the theme of… Continue reading Todd the Toad, pt.2 by George Butcher

Biggest Fan, pt.3 by Heather Taylor

Yet again, the seating plan had changed, although this time it was for the better. Ceri was no longer paired with Anna - an annoying girl who had a terrible habit of launching glue sticks across the classroom to destroy artistic displays. Instead, she was thrilled to have Cherry as her partner for the short… Continue reading Biggest Fan, pt.3 by Heather Taylor
