Exhaling the Past

He was just another kid on the street, a kid that had nothing left--no home, no future, no hope. He was my past. And I was going to become his future.

My first anthology submission--for the "Blurred Edges" theme.  Hope you like it!

This short story is basically all one scene But, that one scene hits quite a punch to the reader. In one scene we get to know that the Colt has regrets from his past and he is hoping to not make what he sees as the same mistake again. We find out that Ryan is in a position no one would want to see a child in. and lastly, we see the war going on with Colt, between his job and his conscience.


I would like to hope that any decent person would make the same choice as Colt does.

I can not stress enough, how much this story connected with me. I've never been in the situation that either of the main characters have been in, but I connected with them easily. It was a very touching story, and part of a greater project of anthologies.
