Welcome to The Blogging from A-Z Challenge April 2014! This year, I’m offering up a story – each one 100 words or fewer - for each letter of the alphabet.
Some are heartfelt, poignant, sweet. Others are…not.
I hope you enjoy them.
A turtle separated from its shell will die. Still, David coaxes his wife outside. She whimpers. Her phobia holds them hostage. One day soon, he’ll escape. Alone.
But not today.
Her terror slams his heart, cracks it.
He lets her grip his hand and lead him back inside.
