I gave the brain to my YA-writing alter ego, Iris St. Clair, for my return to Absolute Write’s flash fiction challenge after a very long absence.  The challenge was to write a flash fiction story in ninety (90) minutes or less beginning when the theme word(s) was revealed.

“Long time coming” was our theme.  My short story is really more of a bit of back story to a YA novel I began during NaNo.  To read, I’ll need to send you to Iris’s digs.
