“Mother?” Published on Lit Up/Medium

My flash fiction story, “Mother?” is up at Lit Up/Medium. This is a reprint; the story first appeared in Flash Fiction Magazine in August, 2014.

An excerpt from the beginning:

“I am born without sight. My first sensations of the world consist only of what I sense with my remaining four: the warmth of my mother and twin brother, the faint, lingering smell of strange foods on her breath, the creamy, almost nutty-sweet taste of mother’s milk…”

This story is also currently featured on Lit (thanks, Medium staff!).
