Short Story
Prose

Sometimes life isn't what it seems. Finding your way through the maze of paths can be disheartening and frighting. Follow this journey through soaring highs and abysmal lows overcast by mystery.

*Trigger Warning*If you struggle with mental illness and/or the following, this story may not be suitable for you.

• Suicide Ideation• Self harm

*This list may be subject to change as the story develops.

About the projectMy struggles with mental illness has lead me to express my experiences, thoughts, and emotions through many different mediums. Writing happens to be one of them. Time to time I would go onto my Tumblr and write short stories or poems and never post them. After a few years I had accumulated a small collection of written pieces that I went on to finally post to the public. Met with enough good feedback I decided to take most of my writing and post them on sites like this. Now I'm just waiting to see where Faded Blue takes me.

How Faded Blue came to be is easy to explain. As to why I write these stories will hopefully be explained by reading the collection. Currently their is no foreseeable end goal for Faded Blue.

Message to the reader

I hope you enjoy reading Faded Blue! Comments, constructive criticism, and suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Short Story

These dabbles would be things I had dreamed about. There are dreams that I’m in, dreams that I’m not. Though there are also times were I could control what would happen and dreams that I have no control over. But—most of the time, seeing these dreams is like watching a movie for me. They are so vivid that I could not help but write them down.

Hi! This is my first story here, and I'm still getting the hang of it, so wish me luck!

(Also please note the autocorrect on this device doesn't function properly so be prepared for a few weird mistakes.)

Here we go!

My name is Reese Fletcher. I'm a sort of geeky person - computers, phones, tvs, you name it; I can fix it, and give you an annoying geeky joke about it.

I  tend to get A's and A*'s an all my tests, and my social life is pretty good (more like barely adequate), so you could say my life is dangerously close to perfect.

But then something happened, a couple of months ago, that changed my life forever.

Th​at's exactly why you need to read this. Your very existence depends on it. So if you want the chance to live 'till your next birthday, DO NOT STOP READING.

They're coming.

“Welcome, what can I get for you today?”

Jacob stared, light browns confused beyond recognition as he found not the usual brunette behind the counter … but a blonde. The blackhead shifted uncomfortably on his feet, and admittedly bit at his lip as if he was unsure of how to answer the question presented him. It was never the question he was asked, and had not been the question he’d been asked in nearly three years. Not since he’d come the first time, and the brown eyed brunette that usually took his order said it once, and never again. Not since a short male with curly hair took it upon himself to tease him every chance he got and admittedly it was something the cop had gotten used to. “A large coffee with cream please …” The words fell from his lips almost regretful for they were not the usual ones to first fall from his tongue.

‘Jakey, are you going to get my favorite today?’

‘Do I ever get your favorite?’

‘Well, you could just buy memy favorite sometime.’

‘Get one of your boyfriends to come buy it for you.’

‘But I’d rather you buy me my Latte. Jaaaakkkeeee~’
