Flash fiction is a short short story (in this case less than 100 words) based off a given prompt. This week the prompt is as follows:
He just needed something to make him feel better
Here’s my take on it:
Allan felt great. Not just great, beyond great. Exultant even. And why shouldn’t he? He’d just aced his biggest exam in med school, had the world’s hottest girlfriend, and he’d all but secured the best internship. His life was practically perfect.
Why then, would the hollowness inside not go away?
He grit his teeth and dug through his pile of hallucinogens as the last of the mind-altering drug wore away. That last one had been nearly perfect. A nearly perfect pretend life found only within his own mind.
This time, he just needed something that made him feel better afterward.
