Short Stories & Scenes
Kate, a young adult short story
They’ve been stowed in an empty hallway lined with folding chairs on either side. It’s quiet, even for a Saturday. The cracks in the plaster walls betray the wing’s age, the large filing cabinets covered in old stickers and perma-marker scribbles. Every now and again there’s the lull of voices rising from the classroom at the end of the hall . . .
Steam Seen Through Fog
Any moment she can spare, Ava ducks out of the offices and into the halls, spending her time breathing in the constructed serenity the museum offers. No eyes on her except the security cameras. She pretends to write things down, never staying in place for long, filling page after page in her handheld notebook with illegible scribbles. . .
Rebels’ Plight, a sample of an original scene.
Just like that, Vid’s all alone with Marc.
The scene’s focus is on introducing different characters and setting up a strong hook for the rest of the story.
