I know, I know. The 100-posts-this-year resolution hasn't exactly started off well, has it? But it's not really my fault. There has been too much travelling happening lately for me to be able to sit down quietly and write. So here's a stop-gap.
This is a story that I wrote in response to this challenge:
A man who lives alone sees a set of footprints leading away from his house the morning after a heavy snowfall.
The story had to be less than 750 words as well. Mine didn't make the cut, but I still quite like it.
