Mini Saga n.13 — A Moss Heart

A Moss Heart by Tania Metalli

In spite of the appearance, the creature has a soft, green heart.  
As I reach over, I sense a little movement, a shiver, like a faint voice. Startled, I withdraw my hand and walk away.
When I am back the creature is still there. 
The pulse draws me toward it.

Mini sagas are short, self-contained stories, of exactly 50 words. I’m using them as a way to practise storytelling. Sometimes inspired by a photograph, other times they are the inspiration for images, to complement the stories.

Mini Saga n.12 — 23:23

Burning Candles

23:23, I knock at the door. The instructions were clear.
I knock again, this time it opens, I step inside. No sound, but the clicking of my heels on the hard floor.
Hundreds of candles burning, a mattress on the floor, a sleeping shape. I get close.
It's me.

Mini Saga n.11 — Spare Parts

Dolls

On a foggy morning while walking through the old town, I came upon a strange shop.
Filled with curiosity, I peaked through the glass door. 
Inside two men, busy at work. One held a body-less head, the other, a leg.
When they finally looked up, I screamed and ran.
