She found him crouched in a corner smoking, digging dirt and weeds out of a crack in the concrete with a twig.

‘You okay?’ she asked. She sat down.

He nodded and pulled the cigarette away from his lips.

‘I suppose I got enough to do something about this now.’ He thrust the twig up and behind towards the ramshackle house above. ‘I could make it as good as new.’

‘Or better,’ she said. ‘You could always make it better.’

He ran the back of his hand across her cheek, careful not to burn her.

‘Yeah,’ he said. ‘Maybe.’

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.


    • Thank you. After writing a response for DVerse on Monday I was trying to pull something more hopeful and peaceful out. I’m trying to remind myself that there’s more than one emotion to write about.

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