Pink Slippers

Guys!

Have been asked to contribute to a flash fiction website, Rammenas. Was so happy that wrote something quite sad. Started drafting it and had to stop, as it almost made me cry- not a good idea when in the office, pretending to be busy on Excel. So, had to actually do some work for a change: to distract myself.

Got home, finished it, asked mother-in-law to read. Mother-in-law cried. Was convinced my mother would cry, too but she was too obsessed with Farmville to get emotional about some 500 word fiction.

Anyway, enjoy!

  7. Did not bring tears to my eyes, i'm just not sentimental these days. But reminded me of one of me favourite authors - O'Henry- the king of short stories. Nice.
