As promised, here’s the second story I wrote for #FlashFicHive the first week of June.

I added this GIF because I really like the nuance.

Choosing a World

By Ronel Janse van Vuuren

They ran through the streets, invisible to all but their own kind. They laughed, stopped a moment to kiss before continuing their wild dance through the city.

To read this story and others like it, get Tattered Tales now. https://www.books2read.com/u/4XK7jL

24 tales of Speculative Fiction (ranging from science-fiction to fantasy to magical realism) with a Dark Fantasy undertone running from outer space, strange advancements in technology to the subtle things that make characters tick in a supposedly normal world.

What do you think? I played to my strengths (dark fantasy/fantasy/horror). It was inspired by the song Go Your Own Way by Fleetwood Mac. I love their Rumours album and when I needed a second song to inspire a story, this one just wouldn’t let me go.

It took a while to get past the short outline I wrote for this story to actually make it work. When I realised that the story should be from Aine’s point of view instead of Dimitri’s (which the song lyrics first told me the story should be from), the words flowed. If you want Dimitri’s side after she told him the truth, listen to the song. It’s a little odd, but I think it works. Check out what Barguests are, Dagda is and the general description of Goblins and High Fae on the Origin of the Fae page.
