  • My Biggest Secret: The Tooth Fairy
    bed grew cold and my small collection stalled Then on the last sunny day of the year he finally opened up again so I took his laugh It s not as satisfying as the others I can t wrap it around my fingers or roll it in my palm but I ve still got it It s bottled in my phone in a video I recorded on the Tube after an afternoon on Primrose Hill he s sun drunk and smiling woozy and glowing and his laugh is flooding the empty train That night his lips tasted of sweet cider and bubbled against my body Those three things are all that I stole In fact I d told myself that I would stop that I should be satisfied with my small stash of him But he pushed my hand He suddenly declared that he was leaving and started packing up the scraps of himself that I d come to call my own You understand don t you He was shouting with that tongue that started each morning between my lips He was drilling holes in our walls with those fists that so quickly turned violent He was pacing around on the feet that brushed cold against mine in the dead of night Can I get past He snarled clasping a suitcase to his chest shaking with anger and sweaty with booze No I told him desperately clutching a small pair of scissors more tightly in my hands I know this is complicated he began but I can t remember his excuses You see it actually wasn t very complicated at all I just wanted to hoard all of him About Oliver Giles Oliver Giles is a journalist and recent graduate from Edinburgh University His work has previously been published in Esquire UK Tatler UK and Prestige Hong Kong Mail Web More Posts 1 Comments comments Prev My Biggest Secret Mother Love Next My Biggest Secret Lick It Laura Gabrielle Feasey Wow What a perfect piece of flash fiction I tend to drift towards tales of the dark and macabre but this was actually very beautiful in its own way too Really loved the depth of the imagery Related Posts Nilam Ashra McGrath Rouen In Conversation with Marc Pastor Litro Lab Podcasts When All Was Young Litro TV Recent Posts Bringing Up Baby In the Night Time Before the Sun Rises at the Gate Theatre True Love in Los Angeles A R BY ANY OTHER NAME The Echo Travelling in Fiji The Litro Blog View Archive 11th February 2016 Litro 149 The Love issue Letter from the Editor By Eric Akoto Love we spend our lives craving it in one form or another searching for it and talking about it Its meaning is felt more than it is clearly expressed Some call it the greatest virtue Continue reading 9th December 2015 Litro 148 The Going Home issue Letter from the Editor By Eric Akoto This month in Litro 148 we explore

  • Kasper Meier: Writing Away from Home
    you re English but also can be hugely warm if someone says we should meet up for a beer sometime they literally mean let s go for a beer next week not the English nice meeting you but we ll probably never speak again It was also the food and the relationship with food This wasn t just what people ate like hundreds of different types of bread and a whole supermarket counter for sausages but also how people ate breakfast is a bigger slower meal dinner can just be a slice of bread and some cheese lunch should be hot Taking this into consideration in your writing isn t just about veracity it s also about using these cues to help form the characters and relationships that you re writing about When you notice all this you begin to see all the things that are unique to your own culture This counts whether you re writing about the place you re living in or not There is of course food and language but also how you place yourself in the world I came to realise what an island nation we are in the UK and how little we worry about our borders In fact in Germany Britain is often just called Die Insel The Island They also find it completely strange that we talk about Europe and The Continent when we re in Europe and part of the continent In my case this is formative for my characters what is it like to grow up in a country that forms itself afresh every twenty years But also when I now write about British characters I m also often thinking Is this something they re thinking because this is innate to this character or is this because they re British The moment you feel that a character is holding on to their nationality to gloss over something more complex the character and the narrative becomes far more psychologically interesting When you inhabit that new culture you also begin to see the lack of difference This is vital in writing a novel set in another country and is something that begins to form after you ve been away for an extended period It is the basic sense you get that on an emotional level there really is no difference between you and the people around you that the subtle differences are fascinating but at the end of the day don t really mean anything significant in terms of the characters humanity This is a key realisation if you want to properly inhabit a character If you re still thinking what would a German do then you ve not lost yourself enough All of these elements even if they weren t things that were directly used in my writing jarred me in the best possible way and allowed to write a novel that I would never have attempted had I never left The Island We pick the most exciting new titles out

    No this is real she would explain to him This is how it used to be Look And he would giggle and nod then scamper away afraid of her In those days when she had drifted between living and dying he had wiped beads of fever from her brow and listened to her mutterings It was so beautiful At one point ravaged with fever but momentarily lucid she had gripped his hand Destroyed We destroyed it And he had hushed her quiet then taken the book from the shelf and searched through it trying to find what it was she imagined they had lost He knew the story The land ravaged by forces of wind rain drought and a pestilence so biblical he had feared it as a child But he had known nothing else When he looked at the land he saw beauty there The way the morning light in winter could be tinged with gold And though he knew it was simply dust refracted in the sunlight it was beautiful for all that Could she not see it But he had never shared her loss Never known what had been He stared at a photo of an orchard The colours had faded but there was enough there to cause wonder That the grass had been so tall so green The trees in blossom a delicate pink he had never seen And he felt it then the weight of melancholy in his heart Beyond the window he could see the field a blurred mirage of colour in the afternoon haze The flowers stood erect and unmoving their plastic colours garish like a taunt as if they were calling out not just his foolishness but everyone s You cannot re make this And he ran then out into the field ripping the flowers from the ground The dust billowing around him the ghost of the land From the window she watched him and nodded and wept Astra Book One of The Gaia Chronicles our February 2014 Book Club pick We pick the most exciting new titles out there for the Litro Book Club and you ll get them sent to you before they hit the shops You ll get access to live author Q As and the chance to see your reviews published on the site It s a great way of meeting like minded book lovers too Join the Club About Jennifer Harvey Flash Fiction Editor Litro Online Mail Web More Posts 13 Comments comments Prev The Air is Still Next Smashing Related Posts The Mattress by Harkaitz Cano João Paulo Cuenca The Tattooist The Estate Litro TV Recent Posts Bringing Up Baby In the Night Time Before the Sun Rises at the Gate Theatre True Love in Los Angeles A R BY ANY OTHER NAME The Echo Travelling in Fiji The Litro Blog View Archive 11th February 2016 Litro 149 The Love issue Letter from the Editor By Eric Akoto Love we spend our lives craving it in
