Micro Monday Birthday!

Susan from Stony River sets a weekly
Challenge Picture each Monday,
where a picture paints 140 characters, or even fewer


A cold chill blew along the empty hospital corridors. Nurse Eva's heart sank. Blast! The job offer had been nothing more than a hoax. (137 characters with spaces)


Hey, it's my birthday today!

    Although I'm sure with hindsight, Eva wouldn't have wanted to work in such a miserable looking place.
