The Two Faces Of Freedom – by Hugh W. Roberts
Freedom had been escaping her prison cell.
Freedom was feeling the cool rain on her face having been shut away for nearly 25 years.
Freedom was feeling the grass on her bare feet.
Freedom led her to the safety of the light ahead in the darkness that closed in on her.
She had enjoyed freedom for the last 25 years. She was free to do whatever she wanted, see whoever she wanted, and go wherever she wanted.
But for nearly an hour, freedom was no longer hers until she shot dead the running figure coming towards her.
Written for the 99-word flash fiction challenge hosted by Charli Mills at the Carrot Ranch.
