I’m playing with story samples again this week, both to test things out on a technical level and to drum up at least a little interest in my fiction on the reader level. Plus, I have a job interview today that I’m a little stressed about and I’m not in the most focused frame of mind for blogging.
The story below is very short–it’s more of a vignette, really–and I know I posted a version of it on a blog before (not this one though). It’s actually based on a real incident I experienced while tutoring once, though I’ve fictionalized everything of course. I swear to you, the final line in the story is an exact quote.
