Click, click, scroll, click, click. Like. Scroll. Scroll. Click. Like. It’s pretty boring on here today. I went shopping 2day and got the bestest shoes ever! Enter. Yep, that’ll do, they were pretty awesome shoes. At least they’ll have something to read now. Tap, tap, tap. Click. Refresh. Hmm, no likes yet but it’s only been […]

She was startled awake by the sound of a trolley being pushed through the hospital hall outside her room. It was still dark, but it’s never completely dark in a hospital.  She froze, a dream coming back to her, hard and raw. She glanced over at her twins, wrapped snuggly in their plastic cubes. She […]

Haven’t read part one? Click here before you read on. Melissa took a step back toward her children, almost as if she was trying to distance herself from the situation. A commotion outside the hospital room told her that more nurses stood outside the door.  Even if there was a good explanation for the girl in […]

As she slid back into consciousness, she wrestled the sheets and hit the bars of the hospital bed. A nurse would be in soon.  She vaguely remembered them pumping milk out of her breasts last time.  She didn’t even know they could do that while someone was only semi-conscious.

Gabby’s little arms were tucked tightly against her sides and she wiggled in gently for a closer fit, for a connection only her mummy could provide.

She looked down at the almost half empty bowl in front of her.  Oh no, she’d eaten most of the toddler’s lunch. How did that happen? She’d only eaten a couple of spoonfuls. It was so good she couldn’t stop.  What was she going to feed them now? The thought of spending the afternoon with […]

Red and Yellow

  Red was wise and witty too, He didn’t like Green and he didn’t like Blue. His best friend was Yellow, a hard-shelled treat. A  plump M&M with two big white feet.   Yellow was kind and thoughtful to most. The tastiest too but he never did boast. His best friend was Red, who dominated the pair, with his […]

Day after day he would watch the animals of the forest move around him, a majestic parrot, a careless lizard, a determined and greedy possum. He loved being the centre of their world, […]

Pretty

She fiddled with the clasp on her bra and walked toward Andrew. ‘A little help?’ she asked him. ‘I can’t believe you still haven’t got the hang of doing up your own bra. You’ve had 20 years of practise!’ he said with a smirk on his face. ‘Don’t be stupid Andy; I didn’t have breasts […]

Time.

  I know it’s time for Short Tale Tuesday but this is not a fiction. This post had to be written sometime, even if I kept trying to fool myself out of it.  You could see me fooling myself only a couple of weeks go, where I wrote that I was going to share more,  […]
