This short story began as a dream last year. I wrote a 1000 word "short short story" and put it down for about 6 months. And then for some reason, I felt compelled to lengthen it to 15,000 words this year. I've already thought of how I could keep expanding it. What for, I don't know. I have to put it down for now and move on to something else. But if you would like to read it, please do so. Many thanks!
