Flash Fiction for Lauren DeStefano’s contest to win an ARC of her yet-to-be-released new book, Perfect Rain!
“Don’t go looking for trouble.” That’s what I heard in my head every time I walked toward the clouds, toward the nothing, toward the edge of safety. I should stay where I am supposed to, but, in the end, the edge calls to me. Beyond the edge, there was something out there. I knew it. But to find it meant leaving behind everyone that mattered. Taking a deep breath, I put one foot in front of the other. The mist got thicker as I neared where I knew the edge was supposed to be. Just a few more steps and then my world would change forever.
