Ready. Set. WRITE! Update 2

Call it writer’s intuition. I… Read more »

HEIR OF ISIS Excerpt

I’ve always believed that pure loneliness occurs most in large groups, that feeling of being present yet not there, on the outside looking into my own life where I was another passerby. Entering Cairo’s Khan El-Khalili bazaar, I felt exactly that. People zoomed in and out the aisles that were as layered as the Amazon Rain Forest while I stood in the middle of the madness, fighting for my sanity.

Of course, if I hadn’t lost it after years of being homeless, I doubted I would now. Brushing my thick, curly hair aside, I sighed. Homeless, once again. It did have its perks, though. When it was time to move, again I wouldn’t have to worry about saying goodbye. I could grab my things and go, leaving behind an empty carcass of a house or apartment that we never filled to begin with. At least that’s what I’ve always told myself. When you’ve moved as much as I have, you start caring more about how to get from Point A to Point B and less about the journey itself.

The Sun’s hot rays darted upon me like lasers, and I regretted not wearing sunscreen. Sure, as I always told my mom, I was just dark enough to where I didn’t burn. Still, the Sun had no problems with peeling my skin as easily as one might a Clementine.

Sweat leaked through my t-shirt, plastering it to my body. I started to walk toward a cluster of shady trees but before I was halfway, the squeal of one of my new classmates interrupted me.
