Coming of Age
The following is a "drabble," a form of ultra-short flash fiction that is exactly 100 words in length. Not surprisingly, telling a story with meaningful characters, a compelling world, and weighty events in a 100-word space can be difficult. While this story was accepted in the 100 Worlds anthology from Dreamscape Press, it seemed silly for me to charge for such a short tale as a stand-alone item. So I offer it here for visitors to enjoy.
