This is my very first attempt at the slendiferious Angela Goff’s Visual Dare flash fiction. Check out her blog, Anonymous Legacy for more details. I’m incredibly excited to particpate, can you tell?! Here we go!
The room was sparse and bleak, yet to Kella it was home. She’d spent the better part of her life drifting from one abandoned flat to the next, collecting battered bits of furniture and discarded moldy sheets that she lugged around as though they were the finest treasures one could own. This flat had a beautiful view just beyond the tiny windows – and a serious case of termites – but both suited her. Each morning she awoke tossing back the covers and leaping from bed, thankful she was alive. It wasn’t a charmed life, but it was the best she could do.
Note: The piece is supposed to be 100 words…and if you are a keener and counted, you’d find that I exceeded that limit by one. I’m sure Ms. Anonymous Legacy won’t mind :)
