The Apartment #18

by

With silent automatic movements, she slumped into a chair and put the radio on. She began listening but soon memories took over. Thoughts and memories tumbled.
To be anonymous. She had had enough of being frightened when she was a child. Her dad. His friends. Growing up. And before prison, her friends. Two years out of prison. Fresh air. In prison she'd learned not to be frightened of anyone. No one to be frightened of now. Not in work. Nor here, provided she kept her distance and everyone else kept theirs.
No, no one frightened her now. Apart from herself.

    Thanks Lisa, that's the last of the character descriptions. Now all I have to do is work out how to fit them into a story. xx

    I just couldn't write like this. Have to have the story mapped out in my head before I share. V admirable! X
