#226 – The Tale of Carter-James and the Monster Truck

Carter-James Filiga pulled on his brown, leather driving gloves. Staying focused on the job at hand was difficult with 30,000 fans screaming your name, taking photos and gesturing for you to give them a show that they’ll never forget. The pressure of being the number one monster truck driver in the world wasn’t something that... Continue Reading →

#225 – The Tale of the Making of a Butterfly

Aiden was grateful that he and his family had left his pillows, quilt and quilt cover back at the holiday cabin a fortnight ago.

When asked later why he had walked away from the campsite, Noah would sometimes say that it was because the smoke from the campfire seemed to be more attracted to him than anybody else, while at other times, he would reply that it was because the mosquitoes were getting rather bad. He would forever keep... Continue Reading →

#215 – The Tale of Jonathan’s Monster

There was no better way to describe the relationship Jonathan had with Yoki other than that of owner and pet. Obviously,​ there were differences (unlike a pet, Jonathan wouldn’t have been too upset if Yoki suddenly vanished), but the similarities were great enough that Jonathan thought of himself as a particularly smart seven-year-old boy for...
