Flash Fiction – Journey (Stories on a Theme “Travel”)

Now.

Today.

You want to be over there.

You can describe it. You can taste it. You can see what you want to do. You can visualise it in your mind and it’s just there out of your reach.

And the journey to get there looks too impossible to get there.

So you write it off a lost dream, there. It’s not going to happen.

So you stay here instead.
