Happy Birthday to me! *Blows out candles and grabs a present*
Last year I challenged my readers to write a Flash Fiction story in honor of my birthday! It was so much fun–you can read some of those great stories here–that I’ve decided to do it again! Yippee!! *Throws confetti*
Sooo, put on those creative thinking caps and get writing! I challenge you to write a story in 43 words or less, following the theme: Birthday. (Why 43 you ask? Hrmmm…that’s how old I am! Tee hee.) I’ll start with my own story, then you can post yours in the comment section below. Have fun and celebrate!
Happy writing, friends!
My Birthday Flash Fiction Story:
“Happy thirteenth birthday, Kirsten! It’s time you know the truth. Surprise!” Her mom pressed a button.
Kirsten’s eyes glowed in the mirror, skin pulled back to reveal metal. Every part of her body was a machine.
Her jaw dropped. “I’m a robot?”

And, before she even knew it was happening, she held in her arms the most beautiful baby girl she had ever dared dream of.
“Happy birthday my lovely Laura! Our adventures begin now,” she whispered as she strolled past security with her stolen bundle.
