WINNERS & LOSERS

It was a non-descript email, proclaiming it has “good news about my ticket”. This was maybe the third one that I had had over the last month. This was all good as that meant that my national lottery ticket had won some cash. The first email directed me to my account, which I logged into … More WINNERS & LOSERS

THE SECRET

A narrow snaking path winds through the trees. Every now and then the dry, sinewy roots break the surface making a trip hazard for the unwary.

ABSOLUTE SILENCE

Silence… complete and utter overbearing silence. I open my eyes to survey my surroundings. Black lifeless trees pushed from the ground like grotesque shards, their black, rotting leaves blocking out most of the sun causing the light to be diffused and misty at ground level. I turn a deliberate and slow circle searching for a … More ABSOLUTE SILENCE
