The wooden board was dilapidated and weathered, with scratch marks from branches scraping across it. But the words were as clear as if they’d been painted yesterday. Oh god no. No. No. No. She couldn’t be here. There couldn’t be one here. She felt the blood run cold under her skin and her numb fingers clutched the phone tighter. Her eyes remained glued to the board, tracing the letters as if they would change. “Ma’am?” the word filtered down the phone with a touch of concern.

“The mystery you put in it is in perfect measure, between revealing so less to revealing enough hints. This one, you already knew, the poetic writing you used in the prompt sort of added the intensity of the tragedy.”
-Hypergalactic Atom Reaction [hypergalactic]

“You kept up the mystery well. It was very easy to get into the story. Your character flowed out well - it always does if I’m honest. The formatting sort of enhanced the story. I’m not sure how but it did. Good job!”
-Veronica Hawkins [veronica-h]

The Lost & The Fallen by Shenie Gul

A group of friends mysteriously wash up on an unknown island. However, they encounter something that changes everything. What will happen? Who and how will they survive?



Francis Trowel had everything he needed to be a private eye: the dingy office, the efficient if not pretty private secretary, a gun (neatly tucked in a drawer), and even a bottle of bourbon (filled with iced tea). The only thing he didn’t have were exciting cases. So when the elderly Mrs. Wentworth entered his office the only thing Francis wondered was what kind of pet she’d lost. But after a murder, multiple frame ups, and a cop who had it out for him, Francis realized the Wentworth case was anything but routine. There was only one problem, his first real case just might end up being his last.


The Hooded Man:

For Carmen and Jennifer, it just seemed like another ordinary day, until a mysterious man in a hood lead them into something they never expected…
