Keep focused. Watch your hands, don’t tilt them too much. Ah, there’s the shake. Stop it. Just take a deep breath, relax, and regain your focus. This isn’t brain surgery, you’re doing fine.

What was that, that bump from behind? No, don’t turn around, just make sure you haven’t dropped anything. My guess is that bump came from the same child as is making that evil laugh.

A flash of colour, a blast of light. It seems like years since I have been outside. But finally, it’s Spring. Gone are the bleary days of winter, here is the rainbow of greens and browns. Canadian Springs are soggy and damp, but soon the flowers will be in bloom.
I was blinded. Something covered my eyes, made me oblivious to the outside world. I could hear a slow, muffled buzz, methodically turning on and off. I heard crying to my left, or was it my right? Something was very wrong; I just had to figure out how to make it normal.
Hello, my name is Dresii. I enjoy writing in my spare time but I have the attention span of a gnat so I hope to unite a collection of short stories into one book some day.
The majority of my stories can seem to have a dystopian theme. I’m not depressed, I swear.
