    Smoking Kills | ‘It’s The Small Thing’ Series

    Welcome to an instalment of my first short story series. ‘It’s The Small Things’ is a short story series featuring the running topic of death. This series shows the importance of decisions in our lives and portrays how one decision (a small thing) can cause our end.

He brought his lit cigarette to his lips and inhaled deeply. “What does a girl have to do to get a cig around here?” She said, a flirtatious smile spread across her face. “Oh come on, you…
