THE COST OF FREEDOM

#S50WS

By Abrahamesang  

“I agree,” he whispered.
“Great,” said the General, “from now you are reprieved.”
“Executions start at daybreak, your work is to fit the nooses and push the censured off the platform edge.”

FAME

#S50WS

By vilight 

Fame at last! The sights. The sounds. The lights. The forced laughter. The rude stirring from deep within whenever your name is mentioned – which seems to be always. You sigh. All these at what price? Slowly, you tighten your grip on the pillow next to you, pretending it was Jane.

#S50WS

By Jade

You complain of the bruises and pains he inflicts on you, it’s been like that for as long as you can remember, but you don’t want to leave him.

You’re in love.

So why complain? looking for sympathy. Clearly, you’re not a victim but an enabler, you condone his evils.

“Group D,” I replied.
