There’s this darkness inside me. I am convinced if I hack my wrist, blackness will gush out not blood.
Do it, hisses that voice.
Grimacing, I thrust the tip of her breadknife into the chopping board and position my wrist under it. If I do this, my shadow self will escape and I will be free. Free to be the real me: someone who hates falseness; who is sick and tired of this pit of sadness; someone who despises people who cannot offer forgiveness if their life depended on it.
‘So,’ I snarl, closing teary eyes.
That’s you. Not. Me.
This flash fiction story was written by me today for the weekly Friday Fictioneers photo prompt challenge which is hosted by the uber talented author and artist Rochelle Wisoff-Fields.
