Try 5 - Flash Fiction




Shadows and Light
By Kathleen Kimball-Baker

The ‘copter hovered, blades flattening the tall prairie grass.
Jess crouched beside a boulder, blending into the rock’s shadow.

She held tight to the albino fox kit, cooing to it softly.
I won’t let them have you, no matter what.

Jamison shook his head.
“No, Professor King, I did not intentionally leave the lab unlocked.”

Now, this Jamison knew just what was right!!! [as long as he saved the fox before there were mutated tests done on it and then it'll spread throughout the species....oh well, give me a break...I watch too much SciFi me thinks!!]
