You see that dude sitting there on the bench in jeans and t-shirt? The one eating fish and chips with a can of shandy? Yeah, he's the billionaire I told you about. How come he's not on the rich list? Ha! Obviously, to be rid of the kind like you. #ThePush #writingcommmunity

The red dragon landed on his estate, flames dripping from her maw. "Listen here, you pathetic excuse for a #billionaire: without a little noblesse oblige, your subjects will one day subjugate you." She breaks down the walls to allow said subjects in. #vss #ThePush #urbanfantasy

No one visits the mouse in the hole at the end of the skirting board. The sewer mice have heard that he's a billionaire, stocks of cheese lining his walls like gold bars. But his stash is mouldy. He collects and collects, but the cheese doesn't last. #vss #ThePush #AStoryADay

What are you babbling about? Who is that guy, the windows billionaire … Doors? Do you mean gates, Bill Gates? #ConverStory #ThePush³

We closed the windows quickly, but it was too late: the particles were already in the room. It affected the dog first. He whimpered softly as his wings sprouted, and he drifted slowly up towards the ceiling. #vss #ThePush #AStoryADay

Little by little I open the window For you are the sunshine, the warmth & glow Yet the door remained tightly sealed For the wounds, old scars & memories hurt still #ThePush
