All Immersive

It was supposed to be an all immersive experience.

Taze grimaced and prodded the cardboard cutout of his mother. It toppled backwards.

‘This isn’t what you advertised.’

‘No,’ admitted the salesman. ‘I’ll admit, the budget left us with a bit to be desired but we made do.’

‘Made do?’ Taze walked around the kitchen and knocked against the polystyrene cupboard. ‘This is utter rubbish.’

The cutout of his mother stared up at the ceiling, her laminated smile reflecting the sodium strip lights above.

‘You promised me my family back.’

The salesman shrugged. ‘You get what you pay for I’m afraid.’



I’ve not written a 100 word story in a while so here’s one for today’s daily prompt: Immerse

Carol Forrester is a twenty-three 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.
