my 75 words of the day on the wonderful paragraphplanet website for ‘super’ flash fiction.
Headline reads – ‘A pair of red shoes are the only clue.’
A tiny moon in waiting eases it’s way in front of yesterday’s sun. Her red shoes poke the tufts of grass on Beeny Cliff.

A crack of thunder carves a Z through her body.
