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 J Forrester is a writer trying to be a better one. She’s currently working on her first novel ‘Darkened Daughter’ and attempting to put together a collection of poetry in the hopes of submitting to publication in 2020. 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. 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 poem ‘Sunsets’ was 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 here on Writing and Works.

  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. :)
