Broken (a short story)

It was a chilly morning. I shivered. Maybe from the cold… or maybe just nervous at the thought of what was about to happen. I glimpsed at the clock, thinking if I could buy an extra time. Oh, bother. Might as well get it done and over with. I grabbed my keys and headed to […]

A Fairytale Rewritten (a short story)

Once there was a princess who lived in a kingdom far, far away. She was blessed with a loving mother the Queen and father the King, who showered her with utmost love and care. She lived in a majestic castle, on a land blessed with prosperity and serenity and greenery and beauty. She was the […]

The Chain Reaction (a short story)

Emilia, Farah, Baheera, Khadeeja; group discussion. Em: Kades, what are you so caught up with your phone with anyway?! Put that away! We’ve got a project to finish for God’s sake! Far: Yeah! And Lin’s not helping either – she’s not here! Is she coming? Kades: (…) Iera: She’s not? Oh, is she out saving […]

The Life of Heich (a short story)

Eif hauled Heich onto his feet. “Look, Heich, you gotta be strong now. Don’t weaken now. Don’t give up, c’mon, you can do this, old chap,” encouraging words started to spew out of Eif’s mouth. A grunt could be heard from the torn and worn out Heich, as he tried to stand on his wobbly […]

The struggle… the happiness

The words were struggling to escape her lips. She scrunched her face, a pair of tightly closed eyes beneath two dark eyebrows strewn together – a sign of clear exertion – as she articulated each word. Sometimes she’d close her eyes, sometimes she’d snap them open. But, always, the words continued to flow. Albeit slowly. […]

The Meeting (a short story)

Bismillah I screeched my car to almost a complete halt when a car suddenly signaled and entered my lane. Gosh, what’s wrong with people these days?!  I let out a disgruntled sound, as I changed gear – although deep down inside, I knew it was probably a normal thing on any typical day –people changing […]

Love Letter to Ramadhan

Bismillah Dear Ramadhan, Remember when you first arrived? You probably noticed what a nervous-wreck I was that whole week, prior to your arrival. It was for fear of not having a glimpse of you again this year. And when the Takbeer was made – marking the departure of our dear friend, Sya’ban – I was jumping and […]

In the eyes of a Dragon (a short story)

01 Oh, looksie! What do we have here? A skinny-ish creature being wrapped in an unbelievably large table cloth (it has to be, nothing of human wear can be that large by my calculation) halfway down its body. Talking about a sore thumb, this creature is definitely an odd one out – and that is […]

Lost (a short story)

Ali put his hands in his pockets and pulled his jacket for warmth as the cool June wind whisked him by. It’s the time of the year again: the non-stop drizzle, and chilly breezy air threatening to knock the wind out of him. He made a turn to the park when a piece of paper […]

The passing dark clouds (a short story)

(Sarah – present day) I open my eyes. And my head hurts. Everything hurts. I don’t know how many hours it has been – me, lying on my bed. I don’t even know what time it is. Everything looks pretty dark in the room from all the drawn curtains. I try to make out the […]
