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 →

The Girl in the Green Tshirt

The idea for this story came about whilst thinking about break-ups and how people dread running into their exes. I thought it was a decent idea and makes for a really good piece of flash fiction. I hope you enjoy it too. SK ... The memory of her haunts me. I always regretted what I... Continue Reading →

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.

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;...

Untitled

This piece is inspired by real life, but given a little bit of exaggeration just to spice things up a bit and make it more interesting. I hope you like it, and I am open to any title sugesstions, S.K ... They stared at each other across the bar. Male ego and testosterone filled the air.... Continue Reading →

I Don’t Want to Talk

This piece was inspired by the first line of Abba's "the winner takes it all". I have used it as my starting off point but unlike the song, about seeing someone who has hurt you, my main character is the one who did the hurting. I hope you like it, and please feel free to... Continue Reading →
