Of The Apocalypse and Tacos

My goal for this month is to write at least a 100 words every day. So I’ve been trying to start each day out with writing a flash fiction story.  And it’s been going well!

They could see the stars from the cracks in the house’s ceiling. He made a joke and she laughed, then she laid her head on his shoulder.

“I’m glad I have you.”
