Flash Fiction Friday #1 - Acceptance

I'm very excited!! This is my very first Flash Fiction piece with the writers of Flashers Fiction Friday. A special thank you to Benjamin Tiberius Russell for the invite to this wonderful group!

It almost didn't happen. I have been out of power, phone, internet, and cable service since last Saturday due to the freak Halloween weekend Snow storm.  For a few days I had access at a hotel I stayed at.  I'm currently at McDonald's using their free wi-fi.  I hope to have access again in a few days.  I'm going crazy without being connected! Thanks for your patience and enjoy! :)

Flash Fiction Friday - Writing challenge based on a picture prompt. One picture to inspire one hundred words (no more, no less).









Anguish and terror ripped me from my dreams, awakening the Beast. I soared over their heads, answering her call with my own. They had her cornered against Our tree. Although her back was toward me, I knew there would be fear in her eyes. Her slender wrists were already bound by chafing twine. Small droplets of blood slid down her arms as they yanked, spinning her around. My nostrils flared seeing the cage. Our souls were connected. I couldn't betray our secret. Her gaze sought mine. Held it. I roared in rage and grief at the Acceptance I saw there.

Well done.

Benjamin Tiberius Russell said...

Oh Wow, the acceptance in her eyes. Hmm, does that mean her fate is sealed or can he somehow rescue her before all is lost? I simple love this type of FFF post, because he makes me hunger for more - and that's a good sign,

Excellent Ms. Luna, you have now been defrocked and I declare you a full-fledged FFF'er.

This was awesome Luna. I hope he rescues her in time.

I hear you on losing power. We got ours back finally, but my parents and other family won't have power for a few more days still :( (Mass and CT)

Thank you EVERYONE for such support and encouragement! I feel all warm and fuzzy and blushy, now. <3

To answer your questions, I have started a story that's been nagging at my soul for awhile. I'm writing it against my better judgment, because things I write have the habit of coming back to bite me in the fae-butt. This scene will be included. I will share that it's paranormal and of a shifting nature.

I wasn't thinking of the story when the prompt came up, but apparently the story was thinking of me. It's loosely based on a real life encounter. Chills, just thinking about it/him! My story will have a more positive spin, if I have any say about it. ;)
