Today I read Weird Dinner by L. L. Heberlein. Two people share a meal of what are clearly their last remaining morsels of food, scrounged from somewhere.
The story is very simple, but one of those which has so many possibilities. I enjoyed the way the couple (I assume) are still treating each other the same way as they always would, even though they seem to be facing some kind of crisis.
So, that’s the end of my 10 Short Stories challenge! I’ve really enjoyed hunting down the different pieces and I think I’ll have to look in to most of the authors more. If you have any short story or flash fiction recommendations, I’d love to hear them!
