M for Missing

**Hello and sorry everyone! I just missed out on days I, J, K and L… I haven’t given up completely however, so I shall just continue with day M today.** She didn’t know what to do. She should be running. The man with the silver slipper was here. She stood lined up in a row,Continue reading “M for Missing”

F for Fiery

This was it. This was where she lived. He looked about himself uncertainly. Was he really going to do this? Yes. The fiery red vine leaves that raked up the side of the building were beautiful and it reminded him of his little sister and her love for red flowers. He knew he was atContinue reading “F for Fiery”

Soldiers

The dog was like a sign sent from heaven. Elegant and black, he strolled into their camp one day and sat down at his feet. He had never owned a dog, never liked nor disliked them.

When she had nearly reached her house, her five-year-old son Robert bounced around the corner to greet her. AlarmedContinue reading “Asleep on the Bench”
