Hey. This thread idea was based off of "Zeruda's World" and I wanted to do something a lot like her's.
My first post will be a story entitled "The Ticket"
I stared through the window, at the TV screen hanging above the store’s checkout line, only occasionally dipping my eyes at the lottery ticket I had bought the day before. I had saved up money for a while now. At this point, the lottery was to be my hopeful savior from this life of squandering in the streets.
I saw another man standing inside, probably warmer than I was by the sight of it. He held a slip of paper, much like mine, his neck craned for the television and his dirty-blonde hair falling behind him.
The television flickered and flipped to a black-suited, black haired man. Lips moved. Both the man’s on the TV and the other lottery player’s. My new-found opponent crossed his fingers. I wondered, would me or him walk away victorious? Or would neither of us?
The screen switched to a clear plastic tube. One ball. Two balls. Three. Four. And finally, five. My opponent slammed his card on the ground. My eyes dropped back to my card.
This was a story I wrote in my english class for an assignment and I wanted to share it...
This was also one of the first times that I wrote a story in first-person, so I thought I did pretty well.
Ok, no comments so far...so I'll go ahead and post another original work.
The Black Being
Right now, I'm dominating it
Standing on top of it, looking down
He looks just like me
I step forward
Now it's behind me
Mocking me from my shoulder
The little voice in my head
"You'll never win"
I turn back
