Story a day: 1.10.16

Wanted to do more with this, but I’m on my phone in the car.

Prompt: A phrase I heard on the radio, “running with reckless abandon.”

She ran with reckless abandon. Behind her lay the corpses of every mistake and miscalculation. She pushed on through familiar ghosts. They haunted the shreds of foot and leg she left behind. They gathered the pieces of her shattered shins and torn tendons like birds collecting twigs for their nests. Ghosts garlanded in her failures crossed her path. She ran with reckless abandon.
