Something Doesn't Want Me To Eat My Skittles by Cole_Harris

A background for my experiences: The house was built in 1902. It was constructed by the same man who built the house next door. The house next door was the man's personal home.

Forgotten Train Station by Dreyk

The village of Zelenoye is just another one of the thousands of nondescript, tiny villages which can be found hidden away here or there in the dense evergreen forests of Siberia.

Antique Piano Finds A Forever Home by MrsRamsay

This story started as a reply to Phillip Kafka's recent post about "50 King Street." I realized it just got too lengthy for a reply, so decided to make it a story.

The Non Believer by Crazy4Tulips

My brother-in-law came home from work last night and described that he saw something strange moving quickly across the road up ahead but when he got there, there wasn't anything there.

Demonic Voice? by wrh1969

I Saw It Too by Suneel-Gee

It was during the mid 90s, Kathmandu was a lot cleaner and less chaotic or you may say it really justified the quote"City of dreams".
