#Writephoto ‘The Letter’ #FlashFiction #100Words

This 100-word Flash Fiction was written in response to Sue Vincent’s weekly photo prompt.

The Letter

‘Your Grace,’ said the maid, curtseying. ‘A letter.’

The Duchess snatched the envelope.

‘Anything else, Your Grace?’

Amelia waved her hand towards the door. ‘Leave.’

She read the letter, smiled and watched it blacken, shrivel and slip between the large oak logs in the fireplace.

We must be careful.

That night, stepping into the tree tunnel to meet the man she loved, she shivered as she remembered the place, six months earlier, where she had kissed her groom, the elderly Duke of Highcliff.

A branch snapped.   

‘Amelia, you’re just on time,’ said the Duke, pointing his gun at her young valet.

#Writephoto ‘Fallen Lovers’ #Tanka

This Tanka was written in response to Sue Vincent’s weekly photo prompt.

Fallen Lovers

Light dances on rocks,

Fallen in shady forest.

Lovers turned to stone,

Trapped in eternal prison.

Summer breeze sings their lament.

Luccia is writing a haiku a day on this years’ AtoZChallenge. Have look!

#writephoto ‘Don’t Look Back’ #FlashFiction #100Words

I hear their moans and eerie cacophony, louring me towards the grey arches.

Don’t look back!

My heels speed along as I count the pavement tiles, forty-five, forty-six, forty-seven…

A few more steps.

If I can reach the end of the alley I’ll be safe.

Don’t look into their eyes!

They’ll not chase me in broad daylight.

Keep walking.

They dare not leave the shadowy cloisters.

One more step.

I can almost grasp the daylight.

Breathe.

But a cloud drapes the sun and I’m plunged into darkness.

‘Stay,’ he begs and I look into his eyes as he sinks his fangs.

I’m not a big fan of vampire novels, but following my daughter’s recommendation, I’ve just started reading Erica Stevens latest Vampire trilogy, Fire and Ice. Book 1 is free so I thought I’d give it a go! I’ll be letting you know how it goes.

I read and reviewed some of her Captive series novels in an earlier post here some time ago, book 1 is free, too in case you want to try it out. I’ve read and can recommend it, if you like paranormal.

Do you enjoy reading about Vampires?

Any recommendations?

 

#writephoto ‘Forever’ #FlashFiction

Forever

It’s the perfect place and time, sunless, solitary, and silent.

We’re shadows gliding over the lake, blowing ripples, before we dive into our last baptism.

My arms, wrapped around your urn and one last kiss as we sink into the lake.

Ready for our rebirth.

#Writephoto ‘Endless Sunsets’ #FlashFiction

Endless Sunsets

Jack sat by the window.
Tears slid down his deep wrinkles, splashing onto his black suit.
 “What will I do without you?” he beseeched the fiery sunset.
“Remember the glorious skies we watched together.” He heard her voice echoing in his mind. “Now we’ll be watching endless sunsets.”
He spun round, swinging his arms in the air in frustration. “It’s not enough. I can’t see you or touch you!”
“Feel me in your heart,” she whispered as he held his hand over his chest and implored the crimson heavens to take care of the love of his life.
