Roots clawed at his legs. A spider menaced his outstretched hand.
He tumbled with loose earth back into the puddle, final remnant of the well. He began the climb again.
At the top, no matter how he stretched, her hand was just out of reach.
It is a new quarter and a new month! Let’s open the book Finding the Path with the word reach. With a word limit of 50, this flash comes in at 45.
On 01AUG13, Flashes from the Bistro will be available in the RedmundPro book store. As always, the first ebook of the series is free. Stop by and pick up the set. It is on sale this month in preparation for the new release. Pick up all three for only $20 with discounted shipping. Save at least $6 on the set.
Get your flashes together. The new words are up so you can get a jump! Just be sure to meet the deadline of 30SEP13. At midnight, this book will go, well, into the books. See the official FTP page for this quarter’s theme, rules and limits.
Many thanks to the authors who joined last quarter! Do you know someone who would be a terrific flasher? Let them know about FTP.
How did he get in the well? Who is she? Are you flashing with us this quarter?
