Catherine Weekend Flash-Fiction Contest

Catherine by April LindnerDo you believe in love at first sight? Some people do. Others are skeptical. Maybe that’s just because it’s never happened to them.

Catherine was more than a little wary of all the wannabe rock stars who tried to chat her up at her dad’s rock club, The Underground. But when she meets Hence, a passionate aspiring musician, everything is different. Is it love at first sight? Maybe not exactly, but the attraction is pretty intense from first meeting. There is something intriguing about Hence, and Catherine needs to know more.
