Today, I’m stepping back into Barif, the new home of the wolves of Sorrow for a sweet flash piece. During Izabel’s book, she and her mate fly over a scenic area of waterfalls unlike anything remaining on Earth Prime. They aren’t able to stop. So much had happened and Ranoch needed to return to Korlyn’s Glen, but he promised his Izabel they’d return. This is their first trip.

In going through an old notebook, I found this piece I wrote several years ago. I dusted it off, made some changes, and offer it up as a bit of flash fiction for your enjoyment. It’s a shorter piece, just under 800 words, but one I’d held onto to see if it became anything more.

I’ve been rather lax about my flash pieces here, pouring my time and effort into getting the various projects finished I wanted to publish this year. With Brienne released, Draxton up for preorder, and Izabel ready for the beta readers, I decided to return to a bit of short fiction.
