@LiterallyGeeked is running a weekly flash fiction competition on Twitter called #SmallTales. Submissions of 100 words, or artwork, on a given theme.
This week, #SmallTales is on the brief of ‘hiding’.
Below is my entry:
Today will not occur. Not in this room. I shall abstain from humanity. I do not want crowds. Or company. The duvet comforts. My sleeping heat still trapped within. I am wrapped in warmth and silence. I am calm. Solitary. Pleasantly nothing. No-one.
I’m staying put. No shrill ring or wooden knock will draw me out. I do not anticipate any. I am happily ignored. Left alone.
Life shall not intrude. Abrupt demands and expectations and so much effort are unwelcome. I shall ignore existence. And huddle in bed until sleep reclaims my sad frame.
