So, today's 6SS is from a short story of mine, Sea Foam and Blood. This was the first story I ever had published, and it won best in issue, which I was pretty excited about :o) It's a strange, sad little story about a terminally ill girl and the Pegasus myth (Pegasus was born of Medusa's blood spilled on the foam of the sea) come to life, and although it really is a sad story, it has an uplifting, bittersweet sort of ending. I'm really excited, too, that it's once more available, this time up on Smashwords. Huzzah!

Sea Foam and Blood
Adelaide tried to sit up, but her mother’s insistent hands held her down. “Mum, honest, I’m fine.”
“How many fingers?”
“Funny. Any blurriness of vision? Head pain? Dizziness? Blacking out?”
“No, no, no and no. I’m fine.”
Ah, but is she? That is the question, of course...
