Post your short stories here, they can be any subject but the key is SHORT stories, no writing entire novels on one post.

You can post stories you made up or ones you ripped of the intarweb.

Me and anyone else who wants to will rate your story. [8D]

Have fun!

Please do this or I will look like an idiot for posting it.  [:-[]

Once upon a time a security site supervisor eventually woke up to the sound of his many alarm clocks. He rose and went downstairs, had a coffee and a smoke before getting washed and dressed for work.
It was a beautiful day as he walked to work.
He is in work now, and will be til tomorrow morning, he will be drinking lots and lots of coffee.
The happy guard is not so happy with the idea of having to go into work again tomorrow, but the thought of money keeps him going.........

I found this in some blog..written by a 15 year old.



Once upon a time there was a little drop of water. Now this drop shared his
home with millions upon millions of other drops of water in fact put together
all the drops made a lake. A big beautiful lake surrounded by hills and valleys
and trees. This was in a place far away from everywhere a very very long time
ago. Now this little drop of water was very unhappy.
"I want to be a rain drop" he said to all his friends, but they just laughed for
they knew that to become a rain drop you had to go to the centre of the lake
not stuck on the edge like they were.
"But why can't I go to the middle of the lake ?" he asked
"Because the current is too strong and we're much too weak and small to
venture to the middle"
The little drop sighed and turned away and crept under a stone and began to
cry, and ladies and gentlemen boys and girls the most saddest and most
beautiful thing you could hope to see would be the sight of that little drop of
water crying tiny tears of pure silver. The little drop had hoped so much that
one day he may become a rain drop and when the day came that he tried he
found himself being the clown and an object of ridicule, everybody laughed at
him.

"Why are you crying ?" The little drop of water turned around and faced an
old Carp who had survived the strong currents and hard rocks for many
years.
"I'm just too weak to be a rain drop" he bellowed
"Who says you're too weak ?" said the wise old Carp in a friendly but
demanding tone
"All the other drops say so, they say to get to the middle of the lake you have
to be strong to battle against the waves and currents"
"Well yes that is true, but you can still get to the middle" The little drop
looked up straight into the Carps' one eye
"You mean there is a way ?"
"There is always a way" The Carp could see how sad the little drop was "I'll
take you". The drop smiled and came away from under the stone which had
sheltered him "Do you mean it ?  do you really really mean it ?"
"Yes, Yes I shall take you to the middle of the lake"
The little drop floated  towards the old Carp and kissed him. The Carp
blushed.
"Now you hold onto my fin as tightly as you can and in only a few minutes
we'll be there"
The little drop took hold of the fin. The Carp began to wag his tail and slowly
they began to move and gather speed. The little drop could feel how strong
the currents were and knew that he would not have been able to do it all by
himself.
"We're here"
"Already ?"
"Yes that's it". The little drop slid off . He could feel the cold.
"How can I ever thank you ?"
"You don't have to thank me, except maybe one more kiss" The little drop
kissed the Carp again and hugged him as much as a little drop could. The Carp
turned and shot away. The little drop felt a tear run down his silver cheek. No
one had ever been nice to him before.

Up above the lake the Sun was shining hard and many drops were being lifted
by the strong heat. the little drop made his way up to the top of the lake. He
blinked as the rays of sunlight penetrated through the his fragile transparent
body.
 "WHOOOAAAA  wha what's happening ?" came the cry from the little drop.
"Open your eyes and see" was the reply from another drop. He opened his
eyes. The lake was under him getting smaller and smaller and the clouds were
getting nearer and becoming larger. His dream was becoming true. Up and up
he floated passing other drops on the way. Directly above him was a cloud.
"That one is ours" said a voice. It was a big white cloud, but it was quickly
turning grey. The little drop slowed down and eventually came to a halt. In the
cloud were thousands and thousands of other drops just like him
"Where do you come from ?" he asked a neighbour
"From the river, and you ?"
"I come from the lake"
"Oh the lake. That's a nice place"
"Yes I thought so too until I came here".
Suddenly there was an almighty bang in the sky. "Is that us ?" asked the
little drop
"No not yet, but very soon, the cloud is almost full and very grey"
lightening sped from all directions and from all angles. then it came the
biggest loudest longest thunder bolt the little drop had ever heard.
"That's us" said the friend and in less than no time there was a great
upheaval of wind and the little drop found himself falling, falling and falling.
The air brushed across his body and the little drop smiled and smiled. He
smiled for  he was the happiest drop of water.
 He turned into a hailstone. A beautiful hailstone which twinkled like  the very
stars which shine so delicately at night.
 Some people say that when a raindrop dies it dies happily......for it turns into
a hailstone.

Me likey it...

STOP RACISM!

A BLACK MAN WALKS INTO A CAFE EARLY ONE MORNING AND NOTICES HE"S THE ONLY BLACK ONE THERE

AS HE SAT DOWN HE NOTICED A WHITE MAN SAT BEHIND HIM, THE WHITE MAN SAID "COLOURED PEOPLE ARN"T ALLOWED IN HERE" .

THE BLACK MAN REPLIED...

"WHEN I WAS BORN I WAS BLACK

WHEN I GREW UP I WAS BLACK

WHEN I"M SICK I"M BLACK

WHEN I GO IN THE SUN I"M BLACK

WHEN I"M COLD I"M BLACK

AND WHEN I DIE I"M BLACK.

BUT YOU SIR...

WHEN YOU WERE BORN YOU WERE PINK

WHEN YOUR"E SICK YOUR"E GREEN

WHEN YOU STAY IN THE SUN YOUR"E RED

WHEN YOUR"E COLD YOU TURN BLUE

AND WHEN YOU DIE YOU TURN "PURPLE."

"AND YET YOU HAVE THE NERVE TO CALL ME COLOURED"

THE BLACK MAN TURNED BACK AROUND AND THE WHITE MAN WALKED AWAY


I found this story so sad.. But such a good way he explained how he felt [;)]
They say that when you die, your life flashes in front of you. Make it worth watching!

Awwwww Neil, that is a beautiful story  [:)]
I felt sad that the little drop of water died, but that was overcome by the warm feeling that he was able to become what he truly wanted. It didn't matter that he was a rain drop for a short time, all that mattered was fulfilling his dream  [:)]

And Seany, that's a great story. It often makes me feel sad when thinking how cruel people could be when it comes to the colour of skin. The worst thing is how it is still going on, granted not so much in your face unlike back in the day where hatred for skin colour was at it's greatest. But hearing stories still of racial hatred, it's madness

Thanks Dan...I liked it so much that I kept it ages ago. ..I'm really amazed you read it...didn't think any one would be bothered !!.. I just thought it was relatively well written too for a 15 year old.

Well when you have 16 hours to kill it's a blessing  [;)]
But it truly is a beautiful story, and I am amazed that a 15 year old could write something that is in my opinion a piece of art.
The imagery from the story is overwhelming  [:)]
The meaning behind it all is also so very beautiful  [:)]

I'm not surprised that you kept it, it's a great pick me up type of story  [:)]

Thanks I will work on it for the kids..LOL.. I would like to make some cool pictures to go with it. It is a great story and will be sure to hold their attention..I think they will love the story!

 My little friend who loves science will love this story..

Yesterday it rained Like crazy and I was feeling iccky so I opted to take the kids outside, as we were short staffed and the kids were feeling cagey. We swept the walks off, of the water. The sun had come out and the hail had melted. We have this wonderful dark green mat the kids climbing structure sits upon, so we went out to play on it there as the sun had just come out after the rain. As we were standing on the mat I thought.. Oh lordy I am never going to make it today!! I am so Tired! LOL..But an amazing thing started happening on the lovely green mat... The sun began to heat the wet green mat and low and behold the vapor of evaporating water began rising from the mat all around the childrens feet... They started yelling ..Teacher, "why is the mat smoking?" "Is it on fire...?" LOL. I said "no...hey come here!" and I explained again, how water evaporates and how the heat from the sun was speeding up the process and also inabling us to see the evaporation happening in the form of whispy fast rising steamy clouds that were lifting from the mat. I explained they would evaporate and return to cloud form until the cloud became so heavy with this water from the evaporation that the cloud would rain down on us again! This starting the cycle over again.. I told them about oceans rivers ponds streams that all evaporate and form our lovely grey storm clouds.. They were extremely happy and excited and spent 1 and 1/2 hours diving into the mist that kept rising from the mat and shouting teacher we are in the clouds .. Teacher we can touch the clouds.. LOL They were trying to get it.. so cute Then a couple started chasing them as if they were bubbles they could grasp and then they were amazed that their hands would slice through the heavy white whispy wonder of it all. My afternoon was way calmer then I had anticipated.. we only had 25 kids, but it was great!! They loved it.. and couldn't quit chattering and diving into the mist! LOL It was wonderful!!! LOL

IT is an excellent story.. The kids listened today outside on the green mat where they saw the evaporation taking place.. They loved it.. They want to put it in a large book and make pictures for the story..I loved it to it is a brilliant piece to teach children about the wonders of nature and not bore them.. YAYYYYYYYYYYYY!!! They are going to illustrate their own big book and I am going to make an attemt to do some pictures for also but in a more reasonable size book,decent size for a child... then we can read it all the time and especially when we do this area of science!! I likey it too Neily It was wonderful!

Apparently. Let me try...

There was one a snail. Who could never manage to reach the top of the roof of a house. This was it's only dream. He tried and tried and tried. But it always seem to end at the house wall, and could not go directly up. He tried again, all the time with failure and tears. All the other snails teased him, but with incredible persistence, the little snail tried three times a day, every week. Unfortunately, it never worked.
One fine day, a little seagull came along and realised that this snail was very upset! He asked why, and the snail said that he wanted to go to the top of the house roof, but he couldn't. The seagull said, oh thats easy!! Then the snail went, really? Then the seagull said, Yes sure! I will take you up there! Hold onto me.
Therefore, the snail held onto the seagull until they reached high to the sky! And then they sky rocketted back down, towards the roof. Unforunately, the snail lost its grip, and fell. CRACK, the snail died.

[:o] Heehee [;D]
