  • Grass

This was just another of my 'what shall I do today? I know, write a story!' short stories, so I hope you like it!

Silence. The only sound is the whisper of the wind. I open my eyes. All around me is tall, soft, yellow-green grass; sheltering me, hiding me, a pillow under my sore head.

I sit up. I am wearing a long, plain white dress with green grass stains all around the bottom.

There is nothing but grass as far as the eye can see. I don't know how I got here, or how to get away. There is no path of flattened grass showing the way from which I came.

I pull myself gently to my feet. I suddenly realise there are tears streaming down my cheeks. I brush them away with my hand and begin walking in the direction of the rising sun.

Oh please do write more! I love your writing! Maybe you could write more and put them all in one book! I think they'd get published, they're so good! Just an idea! :D x

Really good. The people above me would probably agree you're destined to be an author/teacher/script writer (As they're your ambitions anyway)
