Long Time, No Short Story

Hey everyone,

It seems that I have not posted a story on here for almost two months now, and for that I deeply apologise.

My summer has been hectic with travelling, exploring, working and trying to figure out my life and what to do with it.

Ya know, all the cliché things that come along with being a late teenager.

I hope some of you are still here! If you are, thank you.

Posts will resume this September (I promise). 

Until then, enjoy the rest of August.

A little break.

Hi all,

Just a small and quick post to all let you all on know that I’m going to be on a break until the 15th June, as I’m currently preparing for my final exams. 

Thank you, and I hope you stick with me until then!

I indulged in his sadness

I indulged in his sadness. 

His salty tears and his red eyes – I couldn’t get enough of it. 

His face replicated mine ten years ago, when he was indulging in my sadness. 

Now it was my turn.

“Why are you doing this to me, Violet?” he looked up at me, a dripping bloodied nose and a bleeding mouth.

“Because,” I replied calmly. “All you ever did to me was hurt me with your words. So I’m hurting you with my fists.”

I kicked him in his stomach and he groaned and rolled onto the rocky ground.

“Violet, I’m sorry. I’m sorry about what I did to you, okay? I was stupid and I-“

“No you weren’t. You knew what you were doing.” I bent down and looked him in the eyes.

“You indulged in my sadness.” I lit a cigarette and blew the smoke in his face, making him cough.

“I- what?! Violet, you are insane! I never was happy to see you sa-” 

I kicked his stomach again.

“You indulged in my sadness. Now let me indulge in yours.”

An Update: ‘twtellstales’ Posting Weekly?!

Hello fellow writers and readers,

Since October of 2013 I have been uploading short stories on a biweekly basis for all of my readers (not that I have many), but starting in May, I will be uploading every Sunday!

The main reason I originally started this blog started as part of my academic program, but I’ve come to enjoy it so much that I have decided to continue twtellstales.

To those who follow my blog, I give you a huuuuuge thank you and and a virtual hug. A like or a follow means more than I can say.

I hope you stick around to see where twtellstales will go.

Thank you.
