Little Bunny’s Planet

Jenny shrugged off her jacket and dropped her bookbag next to the kitchen table before she stoked the fire. As she opened a cupboard and braced her hands to boost herself onto the counter, her father came in from outside.

Flash Fiction week III

I was planning to space these out more, perhaps having a Flash Fiction week here on the Nose once or twice a year. But we have a story left over from the recent flash fiction week that I really don't want to waste. So the next Flash Fiction week will be in October, from the … Continue reading Flash Fiction week III
