Rosebuds on Her Chest
Pleased to announced that my short story, "The Girl with Rosebuds on her Chest," will be published in the Writer's Egg Magazine.
An Excerpt from the Piece:
"I go to my bedroom window and cut my knee crawling out. Free, I run down the dirt path to their huts gathered, following their songs, their voices and the pant of my breath makes me feel alive. I see them gathered in a circle. Stunned, I watch as they jerk their heads up, twisting their arms, and something about the way their muscles gleam stirs me. I hear footsteps behind me, and it is my father, holding a wooden paddle. He paddles my butt home, but I keep looking back, afraid they will see me. But they don’t see me, and I feel bad about that, too."
