Flash55 - There's Never a Good Day to Die

Depression grips her, its malevolent spiral pulling her ever closer to the edge.
Sadly, she contemplates the final solution through moist eyes. Glancing around the room, her gaze falls on her ancient teddy, his one-eyed, benign smile true, never wavering.

"You've always been there for me, Ted".

A single tear drops to the coverlet.

Sorry It's late peeps, but I have sorta been busy................


  1. yes well being a pilot would keep you rather busy lol!!! Aren't your arms tired though from all that flying woot!!!
