Welcome to Friday Fictioneers, the best Flash Fiction in town! Check out our ring leader, Rochelle Wisoff-Fields’ blog, Addicted to Purple, to read the other stories, or join the fun. Rochelle provides a weekly photo prompt; participants respond with a 100-word story with a beginning, middle and end. This week, John Nixon provided the muse. The challenge brings in writers from all over the globe, and makes for an incredibly supportive, positive writing group!
NOTE: I’m headed out of the country, to Belize, on Friday. I’ll try to read as many stories as I can, but it will be hard this week. Hoping to post next week, but will have little to no wifi access. Thanks for taking the time to check out my story this week!
I’m not sure why our fearless leader posted on Tuesday this week, but it caught me entirely off guard! Man, if I hadn’t been on the run all day, I might have gotten in much earlier this week! And then… forgot to add my link, again! Dang.
I’d like to say thank you to Kate at Sincerely Kate, for sharing the Sunshine Award with me, this week. I don’t really do the question part of these awards anymore, but Kate’s a good sport and you should check her out. You can find all the details of her Sunny gift on this post.
When Amy and Rick first arrived at the secluded cabin, she particularly loved the deep, sweet-scented woods that surrounded it.
However, after Amy found a hotel receipt and a sexy note from his assistant at work, in his wallet, the floor fell beneath her.
“Have you been sleeping with her?” A direct approach seemed the obvious route.
Now as Amy ran from him, angry scarlet handprints on her neck, the trees grabbed and cut her. The dark, tangled trunks tripped her– mocked her terror.
In pursuit, Rick yelled violently, as Amy stumbled through the forest– desperately searching for help.
