Glass Heart

Rated 4.00/5 based on 1 reviews
This story is a very old bit of short fiction I did for an English class assignment in High School and recently uncovered.

The human heart is made of glass, precious and fragile. It's not a good idea to treat it too badly. Following is the confession of a young person who had their own heart broken too many times.

About Melody Hewson

I am an author, a teller of stories both long and short, real & imagined. So for the sake of my own amusement, here’s a bit of information about me, written in the form of a short story. Whatever information you can gleam from these words is what you are worthy of knowing about it's creator.

Hazel eyes stared up at a cloudless sky before falling to take in the house below it. To some, it would be judged by its flaws ; it's fading paint and scuffed floors. But to her it was perfect. It was hers. And it was home. To one side, a wild forest whispered sweet nothings in the breeze, which was answered by some distant bird's call. "Life is good." She said softly to no one. "And today is a good day."
The sudden squawking of wild fowl pulled her attention to the shaggy black and white dog that rarely strayed far from her side.
"God damn it, Jackalope! Quit chasing those turkeys!"

Review by: Jonathan Antony Strickland on June 10, 2013 :
For a thousand word story this really delivers. As I started the story I thought this was just going to be a few clever plays on words about how delicate and emotional we all are as we fall in and out of love. For me, if this had been the case I would have been a bit dissapointed as I like a bit more "nudge nudge, wink wink, mind the axe weilding maniac madam" to my reading.

If like me you read the first part and you come to the same conclusion then you too are in for a shock. As the story opens up we get to see the source of the voice narrating the piece and what is actually happening.

Can't say too much more without spoiling yet another very good short story by this author.
