Writing Prompt – 100 Words – Crossroads

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 was at a crossroads

Here’s my take on it:

Richard Allinnor Smith was either going to live, or he was going to die.  He didn’t really care which.  However, he was at a crossroads.  It was one of those moments when whatever it was that drove the rotation of the world, be it fate, God, the devil, or just pure, miserable chance, wouldn’t let a poor soul off until he’d made some sort of decision.

He wasn’t going to get out of it.

Richard licked his lips and adjusted the straps, nodding to the man near the door, who flung it open.

Richard swallowed and jumped from the plane.

Flash Fiction Story – 4.11.17

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.
