Six Word Story: Tease

This post is for the Sometimes Stellar Storyteller's Six Word Story challenge. This week's prompt is tease. "Mum! Charlie keeps on poking me!"

Six Word Story: Insult

This post is for the Sometimes Stellar Storyteller's Six Word Story Challenge. This week's theme is insult. Thick skinned? He'd had to be.

Six on the Sixth: January

This post is for Adam Icke's Six on the Sixth Challenge - six six word stories - one for each of the six prompts. Each one stands alone from the rest.  Wrong Unease gripped her. Something was gone.
