Customised – SHORT STORY

But here I was at the airport after a four hour departure delay, ready to sail through customs, to escape my tedious surroundings, wretched ex-girlfriends and somewhat more importantly, death.

Thanks… Continue reading Weekly Six XVIII – SIX WORD STORIES

Can you believe that? A woman of forty scared of some stairs and the dark. Well… Continue reading My Hornbill, My Only Hornbill – SHORT STORY
