    Forever is the Future at Eternity, Inc.

    Annie sat on the cool, wet tiles of the shower floor. She let the water hit her long, brown hair and pour in warm waves down her bare back and legs, until it plunged into the drain, bringing any viral microbes with it. She tilted her head to the side and let the water fall slowly down her cheek like the salty tears that had emptied from her eyes only moments before. They had landed on the moss carpet, which swayed rhythmically outside of the glass shower doors. The living organism had absorbed her tears and made a slight hum of glee at the added nourishment….

    Musings En Route to Roosevelt Elementary

    The woman was in a rush. She was running late again and her boss told her if she was late one more time, she would no longer have a job. That was why she didn’t notice when one of the white gloves that she squeezed between her hands slowly slipped through her fingers and fell to the ground. She would only notice it was missing later when she left work and her hands started to get cold. It was a windy November day, and when the glove fell, it was carried by the wind to the feet of a little girl on her way to school….

    In A World of Memory

    David’s first memory was of the sky. It was a perfect sky given that David had never seen one before; he had nothing to compare to its fresh blue color and swollen white clouds. David had a hard time remembering his childhood. He would recall bits and pieces now and then: a coiled blonde strand of his mother’s hair, a frayed edge of the red carpet that used to occupy his small room. However, those memories were not important to David; they were fading stars in a galaxy of vast proportions.

    Missing from the Laboratory (Part 2)

    Sophia woke up the next morning anxious to get to the lab and check on her experiment. They had been working on it for 18 months and she didn’t know what she would do if all of the work was gone. She had never gotten ready more quickly.

    Tales From Abroad: China

    Fog rolls across the path as I dash down the stairs, my new camera bumping against my chest with every step. I try to hurry around other onlookers, realizing that once again my penchant for pictures has made me miss the rest of my group moving on. Trying to look through them as I run, deleting those that are not worth keeping, and growing concerned at only bringing one extra memory card with me, I also try to take in all of the beauty that is this place—it seems impossible to capture….

    The Cereal of Life

    If my life revolved around one food, it would be cereal. The thing I love most about cereal is that I can always find a type that pertains to my mood. As my mood changes throughout the day, my cereal cravings shift as well.

    Missing from the Laboratory (Part 1)

    Sophia was annoyed. It was the third time this week she had been called back to the lab. What was the point of hiring interns if her hours increased because of their mistakes? She was going to give her supervisor a piece of her mind; they definitely needed a more rigorous screening process. The last time she was called back, one of the interns had broken down crying because she spilled solution on the floor. How spilt solution reminded the intern of her boyfriend breaking up with her, Sophia would never know.

    A Sane Insanity

    by Ellen Bisson You’re just a photograph. I’m just a photographer, picking and choosing where the focus of the shot will rest. You’re just an image. I’m just a painter, changing with each stroke reality to suit my own needs.…
