This is a flash piece I wrote for The Future Fire's Tenth anniversary writing contest. Even though the word "contest" is plainly stated, my brain somehow glossed over it and I didn't realize it WAS a contest until I was contacted and told I'd tied for the win. So I've got a couple of lovely … Continue reading Ten Brides
