People tell me I can’t bring my objects to the grave with me. I wanted to play around with this idea of permanence in my piece. This flash fiction explores what happens when we can.
Atiqa Chowdhury is a passionate writer who loves telling stories through her poetry and flash fiction. Most of her room is filled with books ranging from historical fiction novels and fantasy to short stories and prose collections. She is currently a student in her last year of high school, preparing for her first year in college.
This piece was an exploration of different relationships; friendship, familial, romantic, and self. I hope to make other women want to take a reflective look inside themselves and the way they interact with others. Honesty is the best way to take your place within your own history.
Junior year was full of me running around to so many different places all over NYC. I was always on the subway, always tired, and always wanting to go home. This year has taught me how to balance my personal life with work, but especially when it comes to family and friends. So this is for them because, without their support, Lord knows I would’ve collapsed by now!
