Silk Ribbons Unraveling (A short story)

I killed you in your sleep. I thought it was only fitting, what with “knocked out” being your default state whenever I was around. You used to tell me it was because you found my presence so comfortable. Personally, I think I just bored you to the point where being unconscious was literally more appealing.… Continue reading Silk Ribbons Unraveling (A short story)

Afordzi (A Short Story)

About My Not-Quite-Ex (A LONG short story)

Yo. So. The last story I wrote was Institutionalized Addicts, back in March 2016. That's right; it's been almost a whole YEAR.
