The Camping Trip

Categories: Short Stories, Writing

The Valentine

Categories: Short Stories, Writing

It was a cold day in the office when Joe arrived at work. The heat had been acting up again as he crossed several technicians working in the hallways trying to get things running before the rest of the office arrived. Normally he would have taken off his coat at the lobby and put it […]

The Carnival

Categories: Short Stories, Writing

The Gas Station

Joe drove home down the long and winding highway. The sun was setting behind the clouds in his rear view mirror, making the sky a vibrant mash of blue and pink against the onslaught of clouds he was driving towards.
