tiny tale #55: The Trojan horse

"Remember, you have to get him to admit that he was the one who ordered the hit. Act as if there's nothing out of the normal. The last thing we want is for him to think that something is fishy.", Danny coached his well-placed 'mole'. The hideous orca and shark heads his daughter had made … Continue reading tiny tale #55: The Trojan horse

short story #9: Tricks of the trade…

Exchanging smug looks, the girls looked down at the gridlock that was moving at a speed worse than a snail's pace.

tiny tale #53: Bumper to bumper!

Google Maps casually alerted her that the usual 15 min ride to work would now be much longer, all thanks to the damn traffic. She took a look at the gridlock that showed no sign of resolving any time soon. Good thing she rode a bicycle to work. The cycle lane wasn't so congested! (280 … Continue reading tiny tale #53: Bumper to bumper!
