A maximum of ten sentences, a minimum of 100 words.

He was okay...for now. No one knew where he was, no one could hurt him. This was his safe place, the one spot where he could be himself and try to forget. Forget who he was, forget what they said about him, forget what they did to him.

  2. When I think of boarded up houses I think of the second or third season of The Wire when they were leaving bodies in the boarded up row houses in Baltimore. Guess they couldn't plot out the knot hole though.

  4. Intriguing... a kid playing hide-and-seek... a runaway who has stumbled on a hide-out... a bully victim... or something more sinister? *shudders*

  6. So are you just storing these up and someday you will write around them? Or do you already have the "rest of the story" written and you are just teasing us all?

  8. Several of these have taken on a life of their own when I wrote them...some may get expanded into short stories, some maybe more. Time will tell!

    Thanks to everyone for visiting and commenting!
