It has been a while since I did this.
Below I list 9 stories (in no particular order) that I have stumbled upon the past couple of months or so, mainly on the Writer's Showcase. I highly recommend reading these stories, if you haven't already. All are relatively short, none exceeding the 7000 words mark (most are much less than that).
Also, if you have found more little gems, please share them in the comments.
Without further ado, these are the pastas.
