50-Word Story: "Fear"

Hi lovelies! I had a nice lazy day today - went to the book shop, spent the last of my birthday money on three of the books I've been meaning to get my hands on, and then wound up spending the rest of the day at the library. I finished a song I've been working on for awhile and decided to name the song I posted a few days ago "Battle Scars". Thank you Belle for suggesting the title! :)

You might remember a post I wrote a few months ago - a 50-word story entitled "Okay"? Well, that one turned out pretty well so I decided to try my hand at another one. This one's called "Fear", and honestly I don't love it as much as I did "Okay". But I'd love to hear what you think - which story you like better and any feedback on either one! :)

love, Topaz


In dreams, she saw his face once more. In sunlight she could almost forget the ache he had left behind, but at night, she did not try to escape him.

It was fear that haunted her the most – the fear of not knowing whether morning was a blessing or a curse.
