A 100 word short :) inspired by the word "Pen" (picked at random by my sister!) and the character Briony.


She runs her finger along the black pen and snaps the lid on and off.

Should she, shouldn't she?

Her conscience grimaces at her.

She hates feeling guilty, she was always so sure she was right, so certain she knew what she was doing that this feeling is alien. The ink slides quickly across the paper, the apology coming too easily. She finds there is so much to say, but all of it means the same – I'm sorry, I was wrong. Her heart thumps to think of him, see his face in her mind.

No, she won't do it.

Never.
