“Journey” – 99 word Flash Fiction

Journey – 99 word flash fiction
Genre – Young Adult

Every breath burned my lungs as I hauled myself and my precious cargo towards the boundaries of the safe zone, we were so close now, almost there after coming such a long way…. My joy at succeeding was tinged with sadness as I thought of those left behind or lost along the way.  The Authorities had not made it easy to slip out of their net but if we were to have any chance, the calculated risks were necessary not optional.

I quickly covered the baby’s face as we felt the warmth of the sun on our skin for the first time.
