Here We Go Again – Flash Fiction

She sat on the bonnet of his car. Her last-ditch attempt to stop him from leaving. He wasn’t bothered though; just another one of her stunts. As he switched on the ignition, her anger and adrenaline skyrocketed. “you won’t hurt me!” she declared, rousing the neighbours from the breakfasts, “You won’t hurt me! It’s assault!”...

For Life – Flash Fiction

  They had been together for 25 years. Whilst it wasn’t always easy - they certainly had their struggles - they’d made each other’s lives more bearable. Always there for each other. 25 years with the same person. Knowing each other like nobody else could; seeing each other through the bad and the good. It... Continue Reading →

Love is Blind – Flash Fiction

She strode across the room of the restaurant and punched him square on the nose. People at the nearby tables stopped with forks mid air to watch this drama unfolding. Dinner and a show. She felt a teeny bit thrilled at the prospect of embarrassing him - she knew how he hated to look bad... Continue Reading →

A Natural End

I sat opposite her, an uncomfortable silence hung in the air between us; like we were strangers unsure of what to talk about. I didn’t feel the need or urge to tell her anything. Everything we’d usually talk about just didn’t seem of importance - we didn’t want to talk anymore. We fiddled with our... Continue Reading →

The Mystery of Her

Day after day, year after year, he had said nothing of his affections. He often thought about doing so, of coming right out with it but he just couldn’t do it. Scared of more rejection, the fear of being even more alone if she spurned him. The one time he did try to tell her... Continue Reading →

I hope you enjoy it too. SK ... The memory of her haunts me. I always regretted what I... Continue Reading →

The Village Mob

Wow. Can't quite believe it has been so long since I last posted a piece of flash fiction. I don't have any excuses really... just life and a lack of great ideas. This new story though was inspired by people who interfere in other people's lives, who make assumptions and judge before getting to know... Continue Reading →

Curiosity Killed the Cat

A little exercise in creating tension and mystery. I like to think that I haven't done too badly, but either way, I would love to receive any comments or feedback. Happy reading, SK. No one was home, but she felt the need to tiptoe, moving swiftly and easily around the living room. She had no... Continue Reading →

Relapse?

I should probably state from the outset that this piece is about domestic violence. I have written on this subject before but in this piece I'm trying to be different by writing from the perspective of the abuser. I am aware that not all "abusers" are like this, and that domestic violence is never this simple;...
