Horror storyMegan, Ryan and Xavier are three best friends; the closest friends you'll ever meet. Ryan, being the oldest, always looked out for the other two. Our three friends share one thing in common...all three are orphans. Megan's parents died in a car accident when she was only a year old; Xavier's mother died at birth and his father died in the army. Ryan's dad murdered his wife, then shot himself.
All three incidents happened just three years apart. Each has something ripped from their souls that takes a while to heal...love. For years, no one has loved them, no one wanted to adopt them because they were different; in a good way.
Our story takes place in a small town located just South of Illinois in a small orphanage. Here we have our three friends sitting on the steps of the building on a hot Saturday afternoon. "I hate that there's always something to do, but yet, there's nothing to do." Megan complained. "Hey! Maybe we can check out that ghost story that's the talk of town!" Xavier, the

The Artist's Gallery
The canvas is as smooth as skin
The paint a dark, blood red
Each fiber on every paintbrush
As if plucked from someone's head
Each tiny little detail
Drawn with a delicate hand
Each magnificent painting
Placed on a bone-white stand
The Artist's amazing Gallery
Is a bright and welcoming place
But there is something unnerving
About the look on the Artist's face
Hunger is the look he gives
Behind those dark, cold eyes
Though the friendly smile on his crooked lips
Could fool those passersby
His smile grows even wider
When his eyes lock on mine
He starts walking my way
A chill runs up my spine
"Welcome!" he says with open arms
Inviting me to look around
"I hope you enjoy The Gallery."
My heart begins to pound
"Don't worry, my dear!" he smiles
My hands grow cold with sweat
The Artist whispers in my ear
"You'll be my greatest masterpiece yet."
