Worth It?

A punch from her was similar to getting kicked in the head by a wild horse; but that comparison was made later, after the whining noise in my ears had ceased and the world didn’t lurch quite so sickeningly whenever I swallowed.

Afterwards I spoke to the guy still trying to plug the nosebleed she’d caused with one crack from her forehead. At five foot three she had to stand on her toes to reach, but the bouncer had gone down like a tonne of bricks.

“This happen before?” he asked watching them handcuff her wrists.

I nodded.

“Blimey.” he whistled. “Can’t be worth it.”

“It is.” I said. “It bloody well is!”

Carol Forrester is a writer trying to be a better one. She’s currently working on a poetry collection 'It's All In The Blood'. She has a 2:1 BA degree in history from Bath Spa University, enjoys judo at least twice a week, and tries to attend poetry events around the Midlands when she can. 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. Her poems ‘Sunsets’ and ‘Clear Out‘ were featured on Eyes Plus Words, and two of her poems were included in the DVerse Poets Pub Publication ‘Chiaroscuro’ which is available for purchase on amazon. More recently her poem ‘Until The Light Gets In‘ was accepted and published at The Drabble and her poem ‘Newborn’ was published by Ink Sweat & Tears. She has been lucky enough to write guest posts for sites such as Inky Tavern and Song of The Forlorn and has hosted a number of guest bloggers on her site Writing and Works.


  1. Nice one Carol. Your work is very readable which is good after a long day and you read something that just flows off the page. Well done.
