Dynamic Definitions

In one instant, alone, bleeding, broken, she documented the breadth of despair. Minimal achieved chaos, wound in nightmares on autoplay, and unbeckoned images of hurtling to earth.

So really, life isn’t crazy enough.

Why not add on a 5th or 6th commitment to April?

I will be taking part in the A-Z Blogging Challenge starting on April 1.

I will write a flash fiction piece centered around an emotion—emotions A-Z.

 

I will also be adding two more hours to each day.

“I’ve Been a Bad, Bad Girl”

If thoughts are as bad as deeds, then Leah knows she’s karmically going to a really bad place.

Ever since Tony yelled viciously at the children, making Nellie cry body-racking sobs, she’s considered ways to leave him . . . or kill him.

But he’s constantly around, claiming to work from home. He doesn’t trust her. He thinks she’s going to run off with some man. What man? A bloke at the shop?

He watches her all the time, checks her mobile, even hacked into her email. He labels her best friend, Jane, a lesbo because Jane doesn’t react to his “charms.” Did he have some once? He must have. Once. Or she wouldn’t be here.

“Babe, fry me some mushrooms,” he says.

She almost says “no” because neither she nor the children like them. And, then she remembers the article warning about the deathcap mushrooms.
