I had an assignment- write a complete story and make it fit on a post card. (Check out Writers on Fire link below for more writing challenges and prompts.)
This is what I came up with….
Death crept inside her womb to smell the evanescent of new life. He wrapped his dark form around Claire’s seed, killing the only family Claire would ever have. Death didn’t mean to smother her embryo. He only wanted to embrace life once more and remember a time when Death too may have been human.
