For the fiction writers, story tellers, and flat out compulsive liars, please make a regular Friday visit to http://madisonwoods.wordpress.com if you dare.
So you can see the prompt for the weekly flash fiction competition. The photo here is the prompt for today. If you are motivated and so inspired, take a moment to peck out a riveting 100-word story and flash us with your brilliance. Post your story to your blog, then head to MadisonWoods and link it. Afterwards, sit back, read my stories, and wait to see what happens. Who knows…folks might just enjoy what you have to say.
Without further delay. FlashFictionFriday
Lengthening shadows precede the coming eve. Through the unlit cement underpass again, her routine.
Heels upon dank cement. Today, Friday, something feels different.
She slows, glances behind, hesitates momentarily.
Did something move just then? No. A trick of light and dark.
Forward again, heart rattling her ribs, striding quickened.
Heavier breathing, she tries to control the welling urgency.
Was that a footfall?
Her neck hairs stand, she spins.
Nothing, save the eerie light marking the far exit.
Then it comes, all at once, all around.
The children’s whispers.
“Please, don’t leave.”
