Welcome to my regular FridayPhrases post. 🙂 This is a weekly microfiction event on Twitter. It’s fun, I find. Check the link for more information.
I submitted a couple of pieces of flash fiction for the upcoming FridayPhrases ebook last week. It took some courage, but I knew I had to take the opportunity. I now wait nervously to know if I’ll be accepted or not.
I don’t like this feeling. Yet I do. It’s strange.
This week’s theme: Before the storm.
I run before the storm, thunder at my heels. I want to escape its anger, its fury. It will catch me up. But still I run.
Just before the storm, a moment of calm, stillness in the chaos. You take my hand, and smile. You embody the courage I wish I had.
Things were different before the storm. I was whole. I could seer the world just like you do. I wasn’t haunted by these memories.
