It’s the Wine.

Good morning beautiful WordPress community

In NSW Australia we have been in lockdown since June. I’ve been fortunate to be working from home during that time. I lost my 2 hour commute which is my writing time. I hadn’t worried about it stupidly thinking I’d be back in the office in a few weeks. It’s September, so I need to keep going with this small piece of joy.

Maybe some can relate to the below? I’ve been living in yoga pants, t-shirts, hoodie and slippers since June. I never want to wear pants with a zips again, let alone a dress.

Hope it gives you a little giggle.

A bit of flash fiction for our morning. Do you ever sit in a conversation and just wonder if everyone else is hearing the same thing as you are? Yeah? Me too.

Fire Drake.

This one came out of the blue. Perhaps I need to spend some time with these characters. I do love Dragons.

“You need to leave!” She whispered yelled at him.

“Why?” He said, not out loud it was inside her head.

“Because my neighbours aren’t accustomed to seeing a dragon in my backyard!”

Last Dance

Hold on to those you love. Dance in the rain. Dance in the sun. Dance until the end. I’ve got to stop watching true crime.

“For the last time. I. Am. Not. Dancing.”

Barney

Short and sweet. Happy Wednesday.

“Hey boy. Are you okay?” I held out my hand so the little thing could sniff it. I wasn’t sure it was a dog at first, it looked more like a matted ball of wool.

The Colony

It’s not every day your friendly neighbourhood aliens come for a visit. Enjoy.

She dipped her hands into the cool pool of black stuff. It was viscous and almost sucked her finger into its depths. She yanked her hand back and fell on her bum, the wet grass seeping in through her jeans.

Uninvited Guest

Hey there! A little creepy start to your Wednesday. Enjoy!

It was the little things at first. The door that was open when I was sure I had shut it. The water turning on in the bathroom, even though I hadn’t been in there. Then things started to go missing.

My car keys.

The antique vase in the foyer.

My cat, Dave. Although Dave always ran away, eventually he would turn up.
