100 Words | #2 Begin

Begin She looked at the sheet nervously. She had a few moments before she could officially begin. She always utilised this time to assess the damage. She knew it only made her more nervous, but she did it anyway. She looked around. Sweat on the forehead, foot-tapping, drumming of fingers, and biting nails were the... Continue Reading →

100 Words | #1 Avoid

Avoid It's just easier than confrontation. Is the heartache worth it? Maybe it is, but I wouldn't know. I think about picking up the phone sometimes and asking questions, a lot of questions.
