Short Stories - Historical Fiction

Short stories are works of brief narrative prose, which usually focus on a limited number of characters and a single, decisive plot incident. Significantly shorter and more compact than novels, short stories leave the reader with a snapshot or slice of life.

Short 3-chapter story about Ada Lovelace and Queen Victoria going on a little spy mission. Based off the world of the steampunk graphic novel I'm creating. Might not relate to any actual scene, it was my way of practicing some prose.
