Down By The River

(Will Pacheco)

"Down By The River" is a dark, short story about two people so incredibly in love living in a small town. It represents a die hard love, literally. The story starts when two young people meet, and this boy is so incredibly infatuated with this girl that he would do anything for her, so when she asks him to help her commit a crime, he does so. Once caught they began to run away from their town down to the river that separated once town from another. Little did he know, this entire time she had been plotting to kill him.

Hate will not spawn our fate

By Jessie Doyle


There was a time I think when the world ran much more peacefully and there weren't wars or violence and material things didn't matter and everything wasn't a competition to see who was better than one another, a time where people helped one another without asking for it that's just what they did because they genuinely felt love and compassion and unity amongst each other, but then something happened along the way that poisoned our hearts and our souls and what was once love, mutated into hate and angst and the urge to destroy one another just to satisfy thier own needs and somehow maybe one day through a miracle we can get back to getting along and living peacefully and happily with each other.
