Why not try one of my Amazon Shorts? They’re only 49 cents a shot, and there isn’t much you can get for so little anymore. And, while you’re there, I’d love if you’d give me a review.
What are the stories? One is a romantic little piece called TWIN STARS. Here’s a sample:
He came to her over the mountain as he always had, hitching a ride with a trucker new to the route who wasn’t inclined to talk, keeping his mouth busy with a wad of tobacco and riding the brake all the way down. The driver’s silent concentration suited Jake. He was saving his words for her.
In the old days Jake would have come on foot over the mountain from the Patch, arriving with the gloaming, like the shadows that slid down through the trees and the mist rising from the stream. And she would have been waiting at the edge of the yard and they’d have had a few moments alone under the pines, with only the fireflies as witness, before going up to the house where they’d be all the night under the eyes of her parents and siblings. But now he was in a hurry, and he was glad for the ride and the quiet driver.

The second is called TREES AND MEMORIES. Here’s a sample:
Jasper Greene shuffled to a window and pulled back the curtain, peered out and saw a station wagon in his yard.
The driver was a stranger but one familiar with country ways. He sat in the car with the motor running, waiting, not coming up to pound on the door like some traveling salesman. The old man went back to his coffee and waited.
The old man lived alone, except for a dog and his memories. He’d lived this way for a long time, longer than he cared to recall. He sought no company, save that of his dog and his memories. Over the years, his neighbors grew accustomed to his ways and mostly left him alone.
