Flash Fiction No. 81

#flashfiction

Fairytale Endings

When I tumbled, it was into his eyes; a fall so hard it choked the breath from my lungs. I should have known better. He led me into the woods, pulling his red cloaked jacket about my shoulders and tugging up the hood to shield the ebony of my wayward curls from the dampening rain.

Trees whispered on all sides, presaging against the path.

I wondered where he’d come from, melting out of the shadows from the leafy edge. Had he been waiting for me or simply lost? He’d assured me knew the way…

Flash Fiction No. 80

#flashfiction

Fallen Dreamers

A myriad of words, tangled together like cotton. This was his poetry. The pages curled, feathering his nest.

I stepped across the white papers, bare feet rustling the remnants of his cut off wings.

Blood on my lips. His blood. I’d never tasted an angel before, but he certainly wasn’t an angel. Not now. Dark hair curved over my shoulder, slinking against naked flesh, as I cast him a gentle backwards glance.

Flash Fiction No. 79

#flashfiction

New Tricks

It took a while for my eyes to open. Like a damaged hard drive, my brain only gradually reacted, rebooting with a slow consciousness. Lashes shuttered jerkily and my gaze moved in and out of focus.

Salt had crystallised on my lips from the hot, adrenaline sweat that had evaporated somewhere in my black out. I breathed normally, blinking into the darkness and gathering my wits.

I’d been running, new trainers on patterned steel. Steam issued somewhere off to my left. It had been like something out of a film.

You Are The Smell Before Rain

I am so tired. It may seem like I’m saying that a lot lately, but it’s true. My mind has been occupied by so many things, so many troubles and so many stresses.

It’s a wonder, sometimes, that I don’t fall apart with everything I try to hold inside.

I know I didn’t make a personal post or a fiction post last week; however, that was with good reason. Not only was I absolutely knackered, but I had a lot of things going on. One of which was completing a story for a project that you will all find out about soon enough.
