To Shape the World

She smiled as she walked away, her every possession carried in the bag on her back. For too long she’d allowed his derisive opinions to control her actions – but no more. From now on, her world would be shaped by her hands alone.

I’ve had a wonderful week’s holiday down in the beautiful county of Cornwall with my mum (Millie Thom) and dad, visiting and photographing the many sights. We even met up with fellow blogger Draliman while we were there and had a lovely meal and chat. If you’ve never visited his blog, then go and check it out. His hilarious flash fictions always make me laugh.

It’s good to be back home now, though – my blog is calling me! I was determined not to spend my week away blogging but I couldn’t resist peeking at a few of the flash fiction prompts. I scribbled this little tale in my notepad while were stuck in traffic on the journey home!

I hope you like it.

  1. Good for her ! Everyone needs to control their own life. There is compromise and there will always be difference of opinions, but not to the extreme. Wonderful story.

    • There are some relationships that are just toxic to be in. I’m glad you enjoyed it, Jessie. Thanks for visiting. 🙂

    • Thanks, Magarisa. 🙂 Cornwall is gorgeous – though the narrow lanes are horrible to drive down! Draliman’s posts are always worth a read.

  3. Welcome back 🙂 It was great to meet up with you all!
    Good for the woman in your story – it sounds like she definitely needed a new start away from that person.
