A Rain Of Sundrops

I did not have the best of days, so getting into a hot bath in the evening, was quite a peak. I closed my eyes for just for a few seconds, but when I opened them again, a goddess was sitting on the edge of the bathtub, asking: “This is all you have for a…

A Secret Dream

“Happy 5.000 words!” I flinched in shock. It was early in the morning and I hadn’t suspected that there would be a person in my cabinet, as I was opening it. It was my beautiful muse standing there in a world that didn’t look like my usual cabinet at all. There was a narrow path…

A Path Of Golden Light

It was the eve of Halloween, I was just about to come home, ready to take down my masquerade, because the kids were filled up with sweets and I was tired from a day full of pumpkin carving. A red flash with a skull face out of nowhere scared the wit out of me. The…
