Flash 55 - Tease

Stephen Foster Lake at Mt. Pisgah State Park, Pennsylvania

Excerpt from the opening scene of Married to Death:

The wind off the lake attacked Alena’s black hair, tangling the ends into a long rope down her back. One foot forward and she could sink into nothingness. Peace. No more troubles.

Exhaustion gripped her body. The lake tempted her. She inched closer to its promise of oblivion. Her toes hung in the air.

  5. I love "toes hung in the air." Been there, done that but with no ill intent, posed on the edge of the dock, toes in the air. Good luck with finishing your novel by your birthday. What better gift could you give yourself?
