For Locals Only

A short story set in the not-so-distant future where coastal gangs ride sharks. One such Wetgang must defend its "turf" in a street fight beyond the surf when smugglers cross their territory.From Science to Fiction: A Short Collection of Flash Fiction is a collection of prose written in genres varying from realistic fiction to science fiction to high fantasy. The majority of these pieces started off as novel ideas and was morphed into flash fiction pieces as a test to see if the ideas would stick on paper. The four flash fiction pieces, Six, The Tale of the Lyncarein, Life After Earth, and Second Soul reflect the author's most recent style and ideas. Inspired by true events, but not based on true events, these pieces of fiction have sprouted and grown into larger pieces of literature, leading toward the development of novels and other long projects surrounding these stories. Whether realistic fiction or high fantasy, this collection has one recurring theme: the morals and ethics of humanity.

We'll always know the difference between the real and the imagined.Attributed to a skeptic (In reaction to the initial press release issued by Synchro Systems about their Synchronicity Drive treatment tests)What if the greatest love of your life never existed?What if they did, but someone was trying to erase them from your memory?[Corentine] follows the narrator, a man who wants to forget his past, as he searches for his missing girlfriend, a woman who is unable to recall her own.
