A Step Too Far

by Rachel Canwell

A bottle, empty, obscene and out of place. Nestled in the laundry, shrouded in brushed cotton and gifted woolens, cocooned in innocence. Hidden, she knows with deliberate, devastating care. One more challenge, one more lie, another reminder. She is a mother now, tigress, red in tooth and claw. Finally, enough.


Rachel Canwell is a writer and blogger, working on her first novel. She is falling in love with flash fiction a little bit more every day.
