In The Aftermath

We sat out, thinking this time it was best left to those who knew what they were doing.

You took my hand in yours; kissed the back and told me that I was not to blame. It had not been my fault and the damage could be repaired. What did it matter if the kitchen needed replacing. The insurance would pay the costs.

Your words did little to stem my tears.

Even your kiss had turned cold.

Carol Forrester is a twenty-three year old writer trying to be a better one. Don’t ask her what her hobbies are because the list doesn’t get much beyond, reading, writing and talking about the same. She has a 2:1 BA degree in history from Bath Spa University and various poems and stories scattered across the net. Her flash fiction story ‘Glorious Silence’ was named as River Ram Press’ short story of the month for August 2014 and her short story ‘A Visit From The Fortune Teller’ has been showcased on the literary site Ink Pantry’s. Most recently, her poem ‘Sunsets’ was featured on Eyes Plus Words, and her personal blog Writing and Works hosts a mass of writing from across the last five years. She has been lucky enough to write guest posts for sites such as Inky Tavern and Song of The Forlorn and is always open to writing more and hosting guest bloggers here on Writing and Works. With hopes of publishing a novel in the next five years and perhaps a collection or two of smaller works, Carol Forrester is nothing if not ambitious. Her writing tries to cover every theme in human life and a lot of her work pulls inspiration from her own eccentric family in the rural wonders of Shropshire life.

  1. In the middle I thought it might be a humorous story, but I like the fact you point to something much sadder and keep it thought-provoking.

    My thought it that it may be an illness of some kind?

    • I’ll leave it open to interpretation, it is always interesting to see all the different opinions that people come up with.

Please take the time to tell me what you think, I love receiving feedback. :)
