– 8-sentenc snippet from The Mountain Prison –
He’ll come back for me. I know he will. He wouldn’t leave me here.

It’s hard picking 8 sentences from flash fiction. It’s all so condensed already. And any 8 sentences from this particular one don’t hold up well on their own. They all sounded weird for me. That last sentence in particular is too long when I take those sentences out of context. It doesn’t fit. But oh well.
