Check out the sneak preview of my newly published short story, “Giselle”. It is a time travel story about a belly dancer and the scientist who is pursuing her. You can download the full story here if you like what you read.
The Poison Church
“Mommy, why are there spider webs up in the corners?”
“This church has been closed for years. People said it was poisoned because of all the lead in the roof and windows.”
“Is it dangerous?”
“No, it was just a scare. People overreacted. Don’t eat the shingles and you’ll be fine.”
“I see.” The little girl paused and looked around. “Then why are we all crowded in here now?”
“Remember all the stuff in the news today, all the flashing bulletins?”
“Breaking news,” the girl recited.
“And remember our other new word?”
“Right. This place will keep us safe.”
