I wrote this story a little differently initially, then I was approached by an acquaintance who also writes flash fiction stories. He wanted a submission for Flash Fiction Ghana to celebrate their anniversary. So I tweaked the story a bit and sent it to them. Here it is published on their blog:
Flash Fiction: The Flight by Tolulope Popoola
The stories I've been writing these days seem to have a common theme. Hmmm.
Anyway, enjoy reading!
