Half-Fairy

We had just called it a night. A storm raged outside, wind and rain battling each other to see which was worse. But we were safe in each other’s arms, spooning like we invented it, nuzzled up tight. Sleeping with her, in her home and in her room, meant sleeping on a queen-sized bed. Melanie…

Time to Catch a Bastard

“So now what?” asked Gary as he leaned against the car. The parking lot they chose was a bit out of the way, and they had to park in the back for some privacy. “So now we wait” replied Lucy as she came to sit next to him. “Is this going to take long?” “I…

Yes

“Good news” she said. My dad likes you.” “Really? He picked on me all through dinner?” “He wouldn’t do that if he didn’t like you.” “Oh, ok. I’m glad I met him. Now I can give you this.” I showed her the ring. She screamed “YES!” before I could ask. “So this is the guy”…

The Ride

He stared absently out of the window from the backseat of the car as it crept through the city traffic. The billboard lights and neon signs pasted colors on his face, exposing his innermost thoughts and feelings. These hues defined his sense of anger, sorrow, and most of all, envy. The city streets opened up…

More three step flash fiction

No one knew there was a flaw. They admired the piece for what it was, perfectly un-perfect. The artist tried to hide the anger welling up, covering it with a look of aloofness, like it was just another day. It would be remembered as the artist’s greatest piece regardless. The doors opened and the crowed…

Cabin

Flash Fiction…in three steps

The trick here is three flash fiction pieces that stand alone, or together. In which case the order they appear in doesn’t matter. “Join my respite from these wretched fools” he said. “But they are me, and I can’t deny them” she replied. “Then you are doomed for their wretched pride” he cried. “Though I…

100 Word Flash Fiction…in 5 parts

Saturday night and the local bar, the popular one, was jumping. Looking through the large pane windows you could see that it could accommodate dozens. The lights were low in the peach and blue room but the energy was high as waitresses flew. There were people laughing and drinking at the tables in front of…

I looked at that indent with loss so deep nothing could fill it.

It told a story. A simple one, for sure, but with so much meaning. It was dug into the ground with longing, I like to think. The worst thing was happening and a fight to hold on began, begging that it would be over, that it was a dream. Then the tears began as realization…

I’m so excited!

Yesterday I self published my first book. I have no idea how it’s going to do, but I took the first step into being a real author. Of course it doesn’t make me real until I sell my first copy, but still!!! I’m feeling a little giddy about this. I put my baby into the…
