I strolled along the street, glancing casually at the signs and boards I had seen a thousand times before. I considered my evening walk a part of my fitness routine. In reality, it was just an excuse to get out of my loud, bickering house.
My phone chimed. Instinctively, I looked at the pop-up notification. “In a shock move, the Government has banned all usage of coffee from tomorrow.”
A steadily rising rumble filled the air. I turned around slowly to watch a stampeding throng rushing towards me.
I glanced again at the cafe board.
It was now or never!

The exhibition is supposed to be a forum for us to express and showcase our art.
So, I fail to understand why attendees look at our masterpieces with looks of disbelief.
Is it perhaps the prolific use of neon paints?
Or can it be the optical sublimity of our strokes on paper?
Surely the fault cannot lie with us, if not our illustrations.
Have they never seen mice paint before?

It was a contest like no other.
Testing nerves against the myth of the graveyard: Spend a night there, without letting the ambient atmosphere unnerve you. None lasted through the night. Either fear claimed them, making them run.
Or the graveyard did.
