Office Vantage Point

Vai took a laser tag vest with blue lights, preparing for the battle ahead. Maphira looked her over, admitting that her former partner looked good in it. She held her laser blaster ready, then nodded that she was set to go. Maphira and Vai walked together, heading through the doors, into a dark office space… Continue reading Office Vantage Point

Standing By The Rods

I’m sailing up to Airlie beach this week with my wife. We’ve loved sailing since we were little. We met through sailing when we were very young and grew up sailing together every summer throughout our childhood. As a child I enjoyed every minute on the water with my now-wife. At the time she was… Continue reading Standing By The Rods

Installing New NBN

I’m filled with excitement. Not only is it almost the weekend but it’s almost HOLIDAYS! I’m about to have almost two weeks off work and I am over the moon about it. It’s been a long time since I’ve been on a plane, or gone on a holiday for that matter and to say I’m… Continue reading Installing New NBN

Mechanic Reluctance

‘It’s not supposed to make that sound is it,’ I frowned over my mug of tea.          ‘It definitely is not,’ my son frowned next to me, over his mug of hot chocolate.          We both took a long, frowning sip.          ‘Well,’ my husband grunted, hopping out of his ute and slamming the door,… Continue reading Mechanic Reluctance

Mechanic Base Failure

Bang!  Bang!  Bang! The banging hadn’t stopped for ten minutes, another strike coming every three seconds exactly. Charlie knew they were only teasing – there was no way out of Fred Bentleigh’s office except that door, and the Little Men could have kicked it down with ease. After all, they’d brought down the entire wall… Continue reading Mechanic Base Failure

Energy Battle

The Bender robot snapped to attention, immediately unleashing a barrage of lasers across the rooftop. Maphira and Vai dived, narrowly avoiding the attack. When Bender’s lasers were gone, they sprung back up and went straight for Dr Con Dew Ratroti. Con dodged Maphira’s swing, then stepped back to avoid another Bender laser. Maphira ducked, the… Continue reading Energy Battle

Typical Tattoo Mistakes

Growing older means growing up. For a lot of people that’s not the case. I know plenty of people my age who still act like they are fresh out of university. They look like adults but behave like children, and it’s clear that they don’t plan on growing up any time soon.  I am proud… Continue reading Typical Tattoo Mistakes

Staring At Walls

As mum and I sat in silence, the doctor arrived. We must have looked very concerned because the doctor used a voice that I had never heard before. It was soft, kind and considerate. Normally doctors just get straight to the point and tell you what you need to know. They’re so overworked that they… Continue reading Staring At Walls

That Transmission Noise

‘Okay, that’s it,’ I said through gritted teeth, my hand sore from clutching my seat belt for so long. ‘What the hell was that?’          ‘What was what?’ my boyfriend asked innocently, eyes never leaving the rain-covered road.          ‘That sound your car just made,’ I glared at him. ‘It’s been doing it since we… Continue reading That Transmission Noise

The Foot Expedition

I brushed aside a jungle, taking small, slow steps through the undergrowth.          ‘Are we close, Professor?’ my research assistant asked nervously, eyes darting about the canopy.          ‘I think so, Giles,’ I nodded, checking our bearing again on the compass.          ‘Thank God,’ he let out a deep sigh.          ‘I’m sorry?’ I frowned,… Continue reading The Foot Expedition
