Hello everyone! Happy first day of fall! I’m really excited to share that my flash piece “The Misna’s Gift” went live today in The Ginger Collect. It’s a newer magazine and I’ve loved their last two issues, so I’m honored to be a part of their third issue.
Here’s a peek at the story:
The first time the Misna tried to drown Admos was after his wife miscarried.
“You smell of grief,” the Misna said. “And you look lost.”
Admos paused at the lake’s edge, watching her through red-rimmed eyes. “You could say that.”
There were no insects humming around them. The silence crouched and waited.
“You must be tired.” The Misna pushed her shoulders back, stretching in the water. “Come and relax.”
Magic stung Admos’ lips. Something inside him longed to step into the water.
You can read the rest here.
Let me know in the comments what you think! I’d love to hear your feedback.
