It's Too Weird
"Why am I even here?"
Laney sighed, looking up at the ceiling of the gymnasium. The mid-spring dance was a buzz, but Laney was sitting at table by herself. She was all dressed up in her outfit that she wore in the Queen Bee contest, hoping to have at least one dance with the guy of her dreams. The dimly lit room made the atmosphere soft and night-like, as the theme was 'Midnight in Paris'. Kin and Kon cackled on how cliche and dorky it was, but Laney herself thought it was the perfect theme for her and Corey. But Corey obviously had a different plan. A crazy plan that just might work.
And it did.
When Corey announced that he signed the band up to play for the dance, it was safe to say he got mixed reactions. While Kin and Kon cheered, Laney scolded him yet again for not thinking it through.
"Core! We don't have lyrics to play at the dance!"
"That's not a problem, Lanes! The principal said she'd give us a list of songs to play, so lyrics aren't a problem for this one!"
Poetic PsychosisIn thirty seconds, the next shell would fall. Every night was the same, but every night Lorenzo experienced it as if it were the first time. His throat felt swollen; breathing was hard. He glanced around at the others; young men like him who had been shipped out in the name of honour and freedom. There was no honour in this, no freedom. Only death behind your eyelids, and a fear so gutting, that it carved out your innards and left you a hollow husk. Lorenzo tried to breathe, tried to assure himself that he was still whole, still made of flesh. They had lied when they told him he was ready.
Matteo ran towards him, arms out, rifle swinging uselessly at his side. He shouted for him to run, but Lorenzo remained motionless, unable to move as his friend’s warning was lost in the constant blare of gunfire. None of them were ready.
“The cycle is repeating. It is not safe.” The voice was soft and weak, yet it carried over the gunfire and battle cries without impediment.
