"a beautiful tapestry of facts, intrigue and emotion" - Coincidence by Danette J. Hansen

The left corner was burned and the thin ribbon was sewed on one side. I held the bumpy fabric in my hands. How odd. Why would anyone stuff this in the lid of a vase?
I glanced back at the door one more time. When everything remained quiet except for the humming of the wind outside I set the lamp back on the table and picked up the broken pieces. Breaking this vase left me feeling like a criminal.

it’s become impossible to step back - What Casts the Shadow? by Seth Mullins


That’s how I learned to play so well within just a handful of years. I gave up on the romanticized notion of a normal social life and focused on practicing and creating. Tommy, meanwhile, had picked up the bass. Somewhere along the line we discovered that we each had halfway-decent singing voices as well, at least for the kind of abrasive music we were writing.
