I’m taking part in Story-A-Day May 2018 so I will be posting a piece of flash fiction every day this month. Each 7 days I will have a new theme, this first week the theme is ‘Open’. My interpretation of the theme will be broad.
She stood at the bottom of the steps, her arms held wide. She was welcoming me but this was no homecoming. I knew this game.
I would struggle but eventually my wings would stick. Then she would creep forward and cover me in silken threads until I was still.
I slid back into the car, turned the keys and drove away.
For all I know, she’s standing there still.
