    I'm just looking through my uni notes and have found this. I think I need to do some more work on this!

    He fought his way through the rose bushes, jagged thorns clawing at his clothes and skin.

    "Ouch! Sodding bushes! Can't she bloody hack them back instead of festering in bed all day?! Lazy cow!"

    The roses seemed to be never ending; each time he beat a path through they seemed to take exception to his horticultural violence and invade the space he'd created. There was no wonder he looked like he'd been attacked by an army of ed off cats. He was more scratches then skin.

    It's definitely a short story
    I believe if you wear enough pretty lipstick, sparkly jewellery and great shoes, no one will notice the size of your ass

    Me too!.....sorry Jaq..I'm always late in replying to posts ...nothing personal, I just seem to lag behind. Seriously though, I loved it! very contemporary, almost like a modern Romeo & Juliet type scenario...have you ever written short stories for magazines?

    I haven't Flo! Always contemplated it as a starting point but never had the guts to actually submit anything.

    Feel free Suzi!
