Short Story

Joshua Middleton sat crouched in an alley. It was midnight. Where is Keri – Josh questioned himself. Keri, Josh’s newest case, was a ghost girl. She was supposed to meet Josh in the alley, at midnight. Together, they only had one minute to make it to the Middle Grounds, protected by the only time of night that death took a breather. So where was Keri? Josh checked his watch. She should be here! Suddenly, Josh heard a noise, it was Keri floating above the roof. Josh didn’t have time to talk, so he blurted out – “Let’s go!” The Middle Grounds were only a mile away, and midnight was the only time Keri could escape to the middle grounds without being carried into the after-life. Keri and Josh took off running, running as quickly as he could manage, they still would never make it. Running at twelve miles an hour, the clock moved to 12:01. Death roared through the city, making Keri and Josh speed up. The grounds were in sight, Keri lept over the border and fell, crying, with joy.

Who Is Thomas Lynn?

Many want to know who I am… The real me… But only few actually know… My life is your typical everyday story.   Full of Twists. Like when I moved 1000 miles away from everything I knew to a dreadful place near the water. Turns out the move wasn’t that bad. The ocean is a strange undiscovered place. Its mystery drives me. (I swear I was born a fish.) Alas, I am just a typical character. I’ve been called a giant among humans for I am 6’0 ft tall. A bit chubby if I do say so myself. I enjoy partaking in sports such as basketball, volleyball. Writing has always been a dream of mine… Especially because I actually take many of my ideas from my dreams. Now if I numbered my years they would add up to 16 and a quarter. There is much more to learn but it can only be found in the stories I am about to tell to you. All you have to do is read them. I hope to see you soon my friend. Until then I wish thee farewell and safe travels for the night has come upon the lands.

Well-wishes- Thomas Miles Lynn
