1950, on Guernica/PEN Flash Series

Featured on PEN’s website this week is a flash short fiction piece of mine, titled “1950”:

Korean War

Here’s an excerpt:

“This is where you’re staying?” Piggy asked.
A moment ago, I’d liked our house, but now all I could see was the odd gap at the bottom of the front door, like a sneer.
“We have to leave tomorrow anyway, so who cares,” I said.
“Your dad said it’d be more like a week.”
I kicked an oblong stone near my right foot, and it spun away like a helicopter blade.
“We have three bedrooms,” I said.
Piggy smiled. “Ours has four.”
