FICTION: BURNING AWAY AS ONE
A man and a boy face the winter together in Langdon Hickman's bleak, wonderful piece "Burning Away As One".
The black sky above him boomed and rippled. The cloud cover hadn’t broken the whole time he’d known the world like this, with its ever-persisting chill and endless expanse of snow covering every damn inch. Five years ago, Thomas looked up at the same sky and nearly killed himself when he realized finding his wife and daughter was hopeless, but the walking had given him a broader perspective of things, and he could no longer summon the strength to contemplate it. There was nothing but the black, nothing but the snow. A streak of red ran through the clouds. READ FICTION: "BURNING AWAY AS ONE" NOW!
