“It makes me mad because they’re grown-ups and they shouldn’t believe in stupid games any more. Invisible things. Made up things.

An interactive short story about a short-tempered boy named Luke who runs away with his mother. I came up with the idea while driving four-hundred miles to Scotland. It was published in daily instalments throughout December 2017, and is now complete and free to read online. It contains only a very small amount of chocolate.
