Not a Matter of Choice – Flash Fiction Story

An abandoned and rickety wooden house
Reading Time: 2 minutes

Can I talk to you? What if I tell you that I’m lonely and needy? Is it alright to believe that I still have a chance?

My name’s not important. I have many. None suit the person I was or the monster I’ve become.

They Killed a God – Flash Fiction Story

The face of goddess Kali
Reading Time: 2 minutes

Dry, howling winds drowned out the baby’s cries. It was two hours before dawn, but a mother knew her newborn would look even more hideous in the day’s light. An extra limb grew from the boy’s chest.
