Flash Fiction Friday: Fairy House

Agatha bounced through the front door with a bright smile on her face. She could barely see over the object that filled her arms, the same one that put that smile in place. “Mama!

Flash Fiction Friday: Secrets

“I know your secret.” Abigail crossed her arms. “What—” Her dad blinked.

"Heather, did you take the honey?" The little girl withered. "It was a full jar," Momma said. "Well...." Heather fidgeted with her dress. Momma crossed her arms.

“Good luck, Sarena!” Freyren said. He held his tanned back straight as one hoof pounded the brambled ground in anticipation, a gentle smile on his lips.

Flash Fiction Friday: Rebirth

A bright globe, orange and yellow and shades of white, blazed above. Light that accosted her eyes, caused her to squint. Where was she? Pain ached through her limbs, a zip along her back, as she pushed up. Then another sensation, a pulse and a twitter, a flap to her sides. A flutter that made her jump. Wings!… Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday: Rebirth
