Short Story 5: Flash fiction


[My recent attempt at flash fiction, less than 100 words.]

She took a deep breath and jumped.

Her body hit the hard earth, rolling till it came to a stop a few feet away. She didn’t have time to worry about her throbbing wrists and ankles, not when she couldn’t see anything around her. Her legs propelled her towards the only light in the distance, headlights speeding away on what looked like a motorway.

Silence behind her; civilization drawing closer by the second, sweet freedom looming.

Then she heard it, but not from behind her as she had feared.

“Where do you think you’re going sweetheart?”

    Nice work Trix

  2. Thanks. Someone at writing group suggested I write a follow up flash fiction to it. Actually, he didn’t just suggest it, he wrote a follow up to it and gave it to me and asked me to write a follow up to his follow up, lol. Not confusing at all.
