Friday Fiction- The Dilemma Part 2

Between a Rock and a Hard PlaceIt’s Friday! That means new fiction. Here’s part 1 of The Dilemma in case you missed it. Now, let’s find out what happens next…

My breath came and went in shallow gasps as I tried not to move my ribs. I squeezed my good eye closed and braced myself as heavy footsteps approached. Continue reading
