WIP Wednesday

(because everything I want to share is too long for Twitter)

There were many among our caravan that believed the illness could not cross the mountains. But I knew it was a fools’ hope. A disease which had traveled over so many lands could not be stopped by a mere piece of geography. Not so long as there were people to carry it. Not while I carried it. The fools bore out our trip with impatience, hoping to outrun death and resume their merriment. I slept my troubled sleep and waited.

About Morgan Maria D'Isidoro

Morgan Maria D'Isidoro has lived in Baltimore, MD for most of her life, saving a handful of failed escape attempts. Given the murder rates, she'll probably die here too. Morgan is a writer of speculative fiction and poetry, a musician of dubious quality, cat aficionado, art history fangirl, kitchen sorceress, recovering pyromaniac, accomplished liar, and an all around person of questionable employability.
