Escape This Skin Of Mine – Stories For Inspiration Monday

Another break from NaNoWriMo and this time some 140 character stories inspired by one of this week’s prompts from ‘Inspiration Monday’. The prompt – ‘escape your own skin’

I’d love to escape this skin of mine. Maybe one like your’s might be better. More acceptable, less confrontational. What do you think?

He was a hunted man. The escape from his own skin had been daring & dangerous. The authorities could not let him live. Others might follow.

He got under my skin. Shared my thoughts, my dreams. Now I’ve had enough, but he won’t go. How on earth do I escape from my own skin?

Late one October evening the alien infiltrated my body and occupied my mind. I need to escape from my skin before he devours me completely.

The escape from his own skin was efficient and painless. A whole new life lay ahead. If only he could remember who he was, what he wanted.

He drew his last breath, there was a hiss and he escaped his earthly skin. His new, ethereal thoughts longed for some solidity.

Having escaped her own skin she looked for something new. Such a choice of colour and texture. She wondered what would be ‘in’ this season.
