There is an old, wooden shed under a mountain of ivy where the harvestmen come and go. The ancient hinges, rusted the color of dried blood, creak when the door is pulled open.

Late again, as she had been every night this week, preparing for the audit she’d known was coming since the rumored layoffs began. She glanced at her phone quickly. No Caller ID.

“I’d like a triple grande mocha Frappuccino with extra whip, please,” said the girl wearing track pants and a fitted t-shirt with the words “No Probllama” stamped over a picture of a llama with sunglasses. “I like your shirt,” said the barista as he typed in her order. “Thanks,” she said, smiling brightly at him.

Literary Corner: The Lighthouse

The lighthouse stood empty on its rocky promontory, looking sightless out over the sea. It had been decades since its beacon had warned sailors of the basalt monsters that crouched beneath the waves along foggy shorelines, waiting for inattentive helmsmen to deliver their pound of flesh.

Literary Corner Flash Fiction: No Trespassing

“Come on, Amber,” Charlie said. “The sign is barely there. If they really wanted to scare us off, they’d have put up an electric fence or razor wire or something.” Amber peered into the brushy undergrowth, but the trees obscured her view.
