BECOMING – COMING SOON
A short story, contemporary fantasy
The message is stuck to my apartment door. “Your sister needs you.”
I rip off the sticky note, taking chipped red paint with it. My pulse grows heavy and hard, and it shakes all the way through my fingertips.
Behind me, the outdoor hallway feels alive with summer night and shadow. I push out my senses and feel nothing. I am a woman alone.
But no one is supposed to know who I am. And no one is supposed to know I have a sister.
