I've returned from a short hiatus of editing stories to submit to contests for #shortstorysunday. The story below was one I submitted to the WRiTECLUB Contest last year.

It’s Friday, so this is a very short #flashfiction piece I wrote a while back. “What time is it?” Jacob looked up irritably at the interruption. “It’s time you started learning to tell time for yourself.” He snapped his book closed decisively before scooping up his little brother and tickling him. “Stop, stop.” His brother … Continue reading What Time is It
