Amelia walked the familiar route to work just like she did every Tuesday. Down Sixth Street, west on College Avenue, to the corner stop light on Trade Street.

Flash Fiction Friday: Nightly Visitors

The alarm yanked Ruby from her half-dream, not that she had gotten much sleep anyway. She rubbed her eyes and charged like a mad bull up the stairs of the hundred-year-old house to face her new roommate. “Jenna!” she yelled as she slammed open the door. “What in the world were you doing last night?… Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday: Nightly Visitors

Flash Fiction Friday: Awaken

"Jen!" I gasp, eyes now open as I sit up in bed. The spot beside me is empty. Where is my husband? Chilly air clings to my skin as I slip from beneath the covers and cross the room into the hallway.

Flash Fiction Friday: Sight

A police radio crackles to life as the paramedic dabs antiseptic on my bloody forehead. Lights from the cruiser outside flash through my living room. I squeeze my eyes shut.

Flash Fiction Friday: Midnight Snack

The cat needed food. Joanie groaned and looked at the clock beside her bed. One thirty-two A.M. Fantastic. She crawled out of the sheets and took care of business as fast as her tired muscles would allow. With one final pat on Max’s head and a prayer that he wouldn’t wake her again, she climbed… Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday: Midnight Snack

Flash Fiction: The Quest

Sweat drips down my back. The day is unusually warm for the autumn equinox. "How much farther?" I say to my father. There are eighty of us, male, hiking to the temple. I'm the youngest, privileged to be among the men of our tribe. Pride swells inside my chest. Each year one male is chosen… Continue reading Flash Fiction: The Quest

Flash Fiction Friday: The Bike (Part 2)

Dan rubbed the hood of his brand new, cherry colored Chevy Corvette Stringray with a clean cloth, then stepped back to admire it. His chest swelled. He’d longed for one of these ever since he could drive. He leaned in to continue cleaning then— A cough from someone at the end of his driveway. His… Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday: The Bike (Part 2)
