#293. ABANDONED SOULS: Flash Fiction

Alone in the woods, away from the crowd, I was all alone building my own cabin. This seclusion was a chosen one, for the Afgan war had not only given me battle scars but also made me bitter, too bitter to be social once again.

#266. RACING DAWN: A Three line tale

In the crisp winter morning, she ran, her speed and mane matching that of the white horse.

I detested him. My mom never seem to have good taste in men. This morning he visited our cafe wearing a dark coloured tight shirt that accentuated his paunch.
