Not so funny #FFFAW #FlashFiction

I love long drives, racing down the highway with my favourite music barring through the speaker, as the cool breeze blows in my ears. Without a care about the world. It sets me free. I badly needed the road trip after the fiasco at work. I suddenly see a lone figure waving at me frantically.… Continue reading Not so funny #FFFAW #FlashFiction

The Proposal #FFFAW #FlashFiction

Maya looked around in awe- she was wonderstruck by the natural beauty. Birds chirped in the distance and the water glistened as the sun shone brightly.
