Bittersweet Dream

Hi again!

Didn’t think I’d find time for this one today, but here we are! Thanks to #ThursThreads this morning, I’m feeling inspired to write about The Breach Trilogy. So, for Tara’s 100 word challenge over at Thin Spiral Notebook, we’ll be getting a peek at how a certain leading lady is doing. It’s more of a drabble, and I’m keeping it vague and trying to be spoiler-free in case anyone wants to read Reckoning 🙂

Prompt: Dream


It’s always the same dream, the same sandy shore under an endless night. Above me, the full moon provides all the light I need. Even though I sit facing the water, the waves lapping at my feet, I know he stands behind me. This respite from my solitary existence is bittersweet. It isn’t real, but I can’t help the joy in my chest when I see him in my peripheral. As always, he sits on the sand beside me. If I reach out, he’ll disappear.

I hug my legs to my chest. When I look at him, he simply smiles.


Yeah, I’m definitely feeling inspired to work on my book. Hooray! Hopefully I can both work on that and keep this blog active. The juggling act continues!

Be sure to check out the rest of the responses at the prompt – you’d be surprised at how much awesome can come from only 100 words!

Friendly Reminder: #TuesFlashFicTrain is in the station and waiting for you to board! How will you wrap up Rita’s story?

As always, think happy thoughts!

  1. I’m not familiar with Reckoning, but I think it reads well enough as a standalone as well. It’s wistful, dreamy and melancholic, and you can feel her sadness in such a short paragraph.
