The Short Story Experience: ONE WAY TICKET

“Jesus Christ,” Annette gasped as she entered the room. “How many decades has it been since you’ve been here? Yurik laughed but also gasped when he saw the amount of stuff there. “Brother…” Nikolai let out a low whistle. Natasha and Andrei made similar jokes as all of them crammed into Yurik’s attic.

READING (AND OTHER) CHALLENGES

I love a challenge. Specially those online lists, you know? The ones with prompts and suggestions and themes.

IT’S 2019! WHAT’S THE FIRST THING YOU DID THIS YEAR?

Ethel doesn’t move and, when the room becomes quiet, she slowly opens just one eye to see if her brother has decided to walk away. He hasn’t. Notice: JavaScript is required for this content.
