Happy New Year – Sandra Woolfenden
1000 words Women’s Fiction
As time moves on we see things differently. New Year is a time for making resolutions (and often breaking them!). It is so much easier if we feel that not only are they worthwhile but we can keep them.
This story is included in the collection A Wish for Christmas
It’s two years since I’ve seen Rick and I realise quite a few months since he’s invaded my thoughts. He is watching me across the room and I wonder how long he’s been staring at me. I don’t particularly want to speak to him so I don’t acknowledge my awareness of him. The party is quite crowded, so unless he makes a concerted effort I can actually ignore him. By my side, Terry says, “Are you all right, Leanne?” “Yes, of course,” I return brightly, a fixed smile on my face. Rick is a long time ago now.
The Butterfly Brooch – Sandra Woolfenden
2700 words Feel Good
The story of a young girl’s rebellion after the death of her parents, the rebellion hiding the caring person underneath.
“I need to sort out my will,” Gran told me urgently, “that’s why I’ve rung to ask Mr Singleton to visit this afternoon.” “Sure you’re up to it?” I asked. “Not really.” She gave me a brave little smile, “but that’s why I need to do it now.” I turned away so she wouldn’t see my tears. I try to not let anyone see me crying. It comes from years of practice so it didn’t show when I was hurt or could feel the reproach.
