This week, Chuck Wendig challenged his readers to write no more than 100 words: http://terribleminds.com/ramble/2015/03/20/flash-fiction-challenge-100-words-only/. Here’s my contribution (100 words).
A Fork in the Road
I come to a fork in the road. I take a step left. I come to another fork in the road. I take a step right.
But wait, I didn’t like that decision. Can I go back? No, I took a step in the fork of reality. Once I decided, I became stuck in the reality where I chose to step right. Unless I find a way to transfer my consciousness to the reality where I stepped left, I have to live with what I have done.
The next fork in the road: do I drop the knife and run?
