Fragile Wings

Short Story


by @DiaConstant


A short story on how thoughts of an old flame, suddenly come to your mind and you’re led down a path of emotional and psychological re-discovery. An exploration of the impact of deep feelings, of memories you are bound to keep in your heart forever and on how you (occasionally) grow as a person, by reliving in your mind intense experiences of your past.

Beginning: “Yeah, I know what you’re gonna say and I know what you’re gonna ask. The answer is quite simply, no. I could not foresee that Tuesday afternoon being destined to have a critical impact on my life.”


Thanks for checking-it-out!



3 minute read about reunion and afterlife.
Comes from the depths of my soul. Hope it touches something in yours.

Please read and comment, I would love to hear from you!

Save your friends or let them die? A simple statement. A seemingly simple choice. But sometimes things aren’t always what they seem. Can Jimmy ride through the fog of perception to make the right decision?

This is a short story (2,000 words) for the #NAcontest Red Door prompt.

The characters in these stories are all drowning. Not physically but metaphorically. Sometimes they get saved and sometimes they don’t. But, collectively, they all learn something about themselves or other people.

Here is the link:



The Orphan is about a young and vulnerable teen girl that lived a sheltered life in the late 1800s with an evil aunt that wants her to marry a prominent and abusive older man. She experiences tons of emotions and is forced to complete domestic duties every day in order to have a place to live.

A man with amnesia is afraid to know what was lost. --> Click Me


Delivered supine on a gurney via ambulance, I know not name nor emergency contact. My entire lot in life is a mystery. Both the nurse named Robin and the doctor named Wang have dubbed me Lucky. Lucky that I am alive despite my lack of memorable understandings. Lucky that I am not dead along with all those other people I'm not sure I should remember. I was found unconscious, thrown from a vehicle during an accident, the only survivor. Nurse Robin tells me I'm in shock and supplies a nerve tonic. Doctor Wang tells me to close my eyes and think happy thoughts as he sets the bone. I can think of nothing happy, can't even imagine what happy feels like. I try to picture a place in this world where people know my real name, thinking that might be a happy thought about a happy place. All I can picture is here, and here, in this brightly lit antiseptic bottle, my name is Lucky.

A short story from Brontosaurus and Other Stories

When the Daffodils Would Bloom

Syria is no home to hope that the people so desperately clawed for; what was a decade ago is no better now. Witness a glimpse of horrors birthed by war.

The Panopticon
Originally written for a 1k word challenge involving something reborn, labeled an Antique, and trapped in a cell of Bentham’s panopticon prison.

Something dystopian, with a mild corporate flavor.


That’s truly extremely kind of you…thank you!

I fell from the stars

How many times can one person’s life change? Sometimes, falling is not such a terrible thing.
