My written stories

What Alice Found

May’s theme is ‘green’. Enjoy this second post. 

Light and swirling dust motes filled the attic. Alice coughed, surveying the scene of her childhood, taking in her grandmother’s trunks and old desk. Ancient dolls sat like sentinels of the past across the furniture.

So many memories, now colored with grief.

Alice opened a wooden trinket box and caught her breath.

Holding her discovery to the light, Grandmother’s lost emerald ring flashed with green fire.
