“Can you at least try to look like you want to be here. I don’t want a repeat of Denmark.”

“We got out alive didn’t we,” Natalia shrugged.

“Only just. You have a way of turning simple into deadly.”

“You’re exaggerating,” she grinned. “Three guys with machine guns, nothing major about that.”

“For you maybe,” Michael snorted. “You forget-”

“Yeah, yeah, I know. You’re a geek, not an operative…”

“We’ve got movement-”

“I mean I don’t- hey wait! Where are you going?”

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.
