#3LineTales Week 115 #FlashFiction ‘The Letter’

This is my first time taking part in 3LineTales on Sonya’s blog, Only 100 Words, but I saw the picture prompt and couldn’t resist.

Pop over and join in if you enjoy reading or writing short / flash fiction using photo prompts (I love it!) You’ll find full guidelines on the TLT page


The Letter

I’d watched the beautiful woman with the troubled look, every week, for months, as I cleaned the windows of her apartment block, wishing for an excuse to speak to her, but she never seemed to notice me.

My heart raced the day she leaned out of her window and grabbed my hand. “Please post his letter, but don’t tell my parents,” she said and rushed back inside her room.

I burned the letter after reading it; she didn’t need him anymore, because I’d be her hero, the man who would set her free from her prison and take her where no-one would ever find her.
