Flash Fiction: Moving On

A piece of flash fiction based on this weeks prompt COMFORT  It all looked the same. Exactly the same as if nothing had changed. In a way it hadn’t really. Not in here. In this house. In this room. This place. It was exactly the same. The only indication of how much time had passed since she was here was the thin veil of dust providing a  ...
