STORGY FLASH FICTION COMPETITION…WINNER…

KNIGHT FORK by Adam Lock * ‘I’m selling my virginity,’ his daughter said, her fists clenching either side of her untouched bowl of salad. Raymond’s spoon, on its way from gazpacho to mouth, froze. ‘Before you say anything, let me explain.’ She scanned the restaurant, before leaning forward in her chair. ‘I’ve tried to tell

Racing Crabs by Harriet Reilly * I’d been racing crabs for about forty-five minutes when I suddenly realised, I am going to die. The two are not related. I have become heavily invested in the racing of crabs; taking my mind off things I suppose. I dug a deep trench across the beach, parallel to

MILBURN’S LAST CLASS by John Bowie * Ms Milburn’s classes left me disheartened, humiliated and without words…spoken anyway. One day I snapped and took the lead. I wasn’t alone – most of us kids felt the same. She ruled us with an iron fist. Other teachers joked she could get an inch below the knuckle

His Art by Edward Field * He turned. He turned around. He turned around again. He turned around again to admire the spiral of blood. His blood. The arc of the flow fascinated him. There was no pain – not yet – and the frayed skin cuffing his forearm retracted, exposing shredded muscle and splintered
