Freaking Hell, it’s one from Freaks!

I’m delighted to host an exclusive story from new anthology Freaks! The stories in Freaks! are written by Caroline Smailes and Nik Perring, and
the illustrations are by Darren Craske. I’ve read this book already in its entirety and it’s bloomin’ smashing; quite simply the gold standard in flash fiction. Published by The Friday Project, you can buy it on Amazon or at one of those electronic book places anytime NOW. Enjoy.

Invisible 

[Super Power: The ability to make oneself unseen to the naked eye]

If I stay totally still,

if I stand right tall,

with me back against the school wall,

close to the science room’s window,

with me feet together,

pointing straight,

aiming forward,

if I make me hands into tight fists,

make me arms dead straight,

 if I push me arms into me sides,

if I squeeze me thighs,

stop me wee,

if me belly doesn’t shake,

if me boobs don’t wobble,

if I close me eyes tight,

so tight that it makes me whole face scrunch,

if I push me lips into me mouth,

if I make me teeth bite me lips together,

if I hardly breathe,

if I don’t say a word.

Then,

I’ll magic meself invisible,

and them lasses will leave me alone.
