Flash Fiction No. 84

#flashfiction

Shopping List

She stirred the heartache deeper into her coffee, mesmerised by the floating hopes that burst upon the blackened surface. Bags lay around her feet.

She’d bought clothes and pretty shoes and bangles that jingled a sweet tune when they wriggled on her wrists, but none of these things had served to soothe her.

The ache was still there and the ache would not go away.

Adoxography

Occasionally, I create random YouTube videos about things. Usually it’s just me blathering on about my life, but somebody very close to me told me to do this one to help people see why they should have a go at #SatSunTails.

Basically me talking about my micro fiction competition that I hold on weekends on my blog. If you want to try it then please do. We could always use fresh blood

I’m hoping it’s achieved that. I’m also hoping everyone who watched enjoyed the video. I’ve had some good feedback so far, anyway.

Trench Note

Still haven’t got my hours for this extra job yet. This is why I’d rather keep a job I already have whilst I get a new one on top. That way if anything goes wrong I’m not left dangling with no money etc.

I feel sorry for the guy in charge, really I do. He seems to be so run off his feet and by the sounds of it, not all his staff are reliable. Plus, he has more than one place of business.

It’s okay, though, because I know I have some hours, now, this weekend. It’ll be interesting.

Flash Fiction No. 83

Staring. Pale skin and auburn hair. She breathes slow and unrushed. White sheets. White sheets, spaced all around her. I love her in white sheets. I love her.

I.

Lover.

Her hand clasps mine. A small smile on ginger lips, stained with broken vessels. I can feel the tear in the corner of my mouth. I embrace it with the tip of my tongue, testing the damage. Worth it.

Roses By The Stairs

My room is tidy. Well, mostly… There are bits of grass from my shoes that I haven’t swept up yet, but still… it’s tidy.

And you know I’d said I needed more money etc? Well, I finally got an extra job. Not sure of my hours yet, but it’ll be nice to have extra monies coming in.

I know, I know… Took me long enough. My mum is always nagging me about getting another job like it’s as easy as pie. I wish it was because then I would have gotten one sooner.

Hard To Catch

Dear regular viewers…

You may have noticed a distinct lack of posting on anything that is really just about me or a piece of flash fiction lately. For that, I have to apologise.

Those of you who know me through social media etc may be aware that I’ve been very busy of late (or at least it seems that way). There have been lots of social things to catch up on as well as an unfortunate death in the family – incidentally, if anybody wants some left shoes (size 10 and male) then please ask my cousin.

Flash Fiction No. 82

#flashfiction

Concussion

Lamppost. Steam and hissing. Ringing in my ears. One eye bathed in red, I lift my head. Nausea tumbles down from my brain, bouncing off the inside of my ear and stumbling drunkenly against the side of my throat until it falls ungraciously into my stomach like a loose rattle.

The world is rotating, pirouettes on broken heels.
