Friday Fictioneers: a weekly flash fiction group: it’s fun; it’s challenging; it’s highly addictive! “The following photo is this week’s PROMPT. What stands out? What type of story does it tell you? Tell us in a hundred words or less.” Each week Rochell Wisoff-Fields leads the show. Check out her blog, Addicted to Purple, for more details or to throw your hat in the ring. This week’s photo comes from Sandra Cook.
Thank you for all of the kind words of support and congratulations last week. It meant a lot to me! As always constructive feedback is welcome.
Here Comes The Flood
A thundering roar blocked out all other sound, as the violent surge swept Kayla up and then pulled her under. She couldn’t breathe, or scream for help– her mouth covered and her senses twisted inside out. She felt her body breaking– her insides torn, as her arms and legs went limp. She squeezed her eyes shut and left herself, floating away from the life she’d known.
As her stepfather got up, he wiped his face with the red and blue fabric, and threw the soiled dress at her.
“If you tell your mother, I’ll kill you.”
Kayla drifted above the debris.
