Fiction: The Light

I can feel the blood rushing to my head pulsating in my ears like a marching band as I lie down. The world swims in and out of focus as I strain to stay lucid focusing with all my might. Sounds are distorted, muffled cries ebbing away into the distance and then everything blurs in front of me. Colours merging like wet paint running down the  ...

Ever Almighty

Ever Almighty. She just sat there staring at the screen. No matter how hard she tried, or how many times she blinked it remained there.

Flash Fiction: Serenity

There’s Something I Need To Tell You: Tammy and Paul

She could feel herself waking up, no, no, no, no, no she thought Eurgh, what’s that taste in her mouth, has she been eating cotton wool? The tears are still streaming tracing black lines down her face as they take the last of her mascara with them. Her fuzzy head was clearing revealing fragments of last night, no, no, no, she  ...

I’m Ready

She felt the night air blowing around her face. It was cold and sharp and slightly damp from the nearby river.
