The King of the Painted Hills: In Exile

Jake Alden February 20, 2013

He fled from everything. He fled from who he was, who he'd been, who he'd known. And who, he feared, he might soon meet. Most of all, he fled from the true King of the Painted Hills, whose throne and...

Flashy Magic, Part Seven

Kira Lubahn April 10, 2012

With Jason on the couch munching on some cavity-inducing cereal, and a bowl of leftover macaroni and cheese in front of him as well, I let myself rest for a second. I think about how Theo waited for us...

We pull into the apartment complex parking lot, and I can’t help but notice that he frowns a little as he looks out the window. I know Sunny Hills Apartments doesn’t live up to its name, but it’s...

Flashy Magic, Part Two

Kira Lubahn February 3, 2012

If you haven't read part one, read it here. As I pack up my things, the mother comes up to me. If the smile on her face is any indication, I think I’m going to get a groovy tip. “All the children...

Flashy Magic, Part One

Kira Lubahn January 19, 2012

When I was four, I could create sparks of magic to play with. When my brother was four, he levitated the babysitter up and out of the house. When I was nine, I pulled my first rabbit out of a baseball...
