His Companion

“I was his, well you know, his companion I guess.”

“His companion?”

“Yeah, I kept him out of trouble, gave him someone to talk to, an extra set of hands for shifting luggage about when he was travelling.”

“I still don’t get it.”

“Neither did I, but his sister tried to explain it once, something about needing a person to show you love without being in love with you.”

Carol Forrester is a twenty-four 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. Hmm. It’s okay, but something about the last sentence is off.
    And you can clearly see that it’s the middle of something.
    But the middle one seems something like a more helpful sponsor.

  2. Very nice, and quite interesting – it has a natural feel to it. A very complex story could be written based on those five sentences.

  3. Oh, this is beautiful. I love when a story is told entirely in dialogue and you’ve done it perfectly.

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