C. Sandra Cook

A smile slowly spread as tears welled and fell. A sense of disbelief washed over and around her soul. She’d made it. The flag that waved from the building was a reassurance that in only a few more steps, she’d be safe at last.

All the pains of burst blisters that covered her half-bare feet, were nearly forgotten as she took another bloody step and another. Just a few more…Just ten more…

She was there. Sobs began to wrack her body as she pulled the door open, stepped inside and collapsed. Not even war could keep her from coming home.

WC: 100 exactly.

    1. Spurned on by the blisters on my own feet at the moment from having to walk so much, mostly in rain. Wet shoes, wet socks…always lead to blisters. Can’t say I don’t try to find work, at least.

  1. So very well done, Jelli! I could feel her desperation and pain and was rooting for her.
    (Small note… did you want to write building instead of build?)
