This morning Ally Bean pointed me to Lemon Shark who was challenging people to post a 50-word flash fiction, to raise funds to help the people of Puerto Rico. It’s a worthy worthy cause, so check in and see what you can do.

As darkness crept in, seeping into all corners of the house, encapsulating the neighborhood, so did fear and anxiety. She could not see in the darkness, could not be sure danger was not approaching, threatening, about to overtake her.
She had always been afraid of the dark – now her city was without power, without food, without water. Her fear threatened to consume her. Who could help?
