"Did you see it?"

"See what?"

​"The people, the joy - the excitement from simply a few pixels and colors."

​"Of course I did. Hard to miss with all the tears and shouts."

​"And yet I don't understand. What meaning does this have? for them?"

​"For them its hope. Its progress, a closer step, a sign of a future. Its what they're truly searching for."

Beautiful Night Sky

PROMPT: Cosmic Creations  | GROUP: Flash Fiction

Space. 
Large, empty, cold, dark. 
Millions and millions of tiny little lights shine from every direction and yet... 
It's not enough. 

Darkness wraps around the nothingness,
        suffocating
        choking

preying on the lost. 
Death awaits in the black corners
    In the empty hallways
Of airless expanse. 
And yet, within it all... 

Wondrous beauty!
Glorious light!
Many a day, many a night dream of the fair richness that paints across the sky! 
Space. 
A wonder indeed, though filled with darkness and cold,...

Black Holes Instead of Hearts

PROMPT: Cosmic Creations  | GROUP: Flash Fiction

Hearts are fragile. At least, they are from what I've known. A heart's love and lack thereof is bottomless, endless like a black hole that pulls all around it. Not even light can escape it. When your heart is broken, all of your light remains trapped inside, while the bad things slip through the cracks. The cracks are small, but bad things are small compared to light, so they can fit through. The idea of a black hole being photographed...

Attic

PROMPT: A Sense of Place  | GROUP: Flash Fiction

Dust lay thick in the air and made it difficult to breathe, but she didn't care. She pushed her way through several precarious stacks of boxes - probably full of Christmas ornaments - and her Converse dug damp grooves through the dust caking the floor. She drew in a lungful of must and mold and forgotten things, and sneezed.

"Careful," he said from behind her, but she paid no mind. She was careful. Always so careful. It was about time...

Me and Her

PROMPT: Tweet-Tales  | GROUP: Flash Fiction

She's stuck in her own mind. She can't get out. Thoughts run through her mind. Sometimes they scare her. And I should know because I am her.

morning

PROMPT: Dictionary Title  | GROUP: Flash Fiction

    Rain patters softly on the roof, filling the quiet living room with a peaceful thrum. She enters, clad in cozy pajamas, a book, a laptop, and a mug of steaming coffee in her arms. The couch molds around her as she curls up, taking a inspiring sip of black coffee. Then she sets her armload onto the cushions and, after a lengthy deliberation, chooses the book. She settles back and opens it, smiling at the satisfying crack of...

Force-feeding

PROMPT: Dictionary Title  | GROUP: Flash Fiction

Every meal was a struggle with my mother. She couldn't even talk, barely could open her mouth, and she was getting thinner and thinner. It was...well let's just say I was trying to be strong for my father and siblings. I was the "strong one". Every one smiled at me and commented on how "mature" I was.

If only you knew.

Finally

PROMPT: Dictionary Title  | GROUP: Flash Fiction

So she reckoned that blind dates just wasn't for her.

Kirsty's jaw tightened. She, a 'people person,' who knew how to tolerate everyone, had never been so uncomfortable and annoyed by anyone in her entire life. The urge to roll her eyes was tremendous. Everytime he spoke, Kirsty could not hear his words. She could only hear the arrogant, selfish, haughty attitude that flowed from every ounce of his being. The way he spoke about other women was disgusting; Kirsty...

Even if I hate that there are.

    "Well, they're all liars then aren't they?"

the sun won't shine on me any longer

PROMPT: Semicolon Soirée  | GROUP: Flash Fiction

I start running; harder, faster, more desperately every step takes me further; crying, weeping, tears fly off my face to dance with the wind; moving, soothing, the almost-but-not-quite set rhythm of my feet carries me away from the grief and pain and hurt; through fields I race, over babbling brooks I jump; thorns rise up to tear at my heels, but they cannot follow where I plan to go; and finally at our special place I arrive;

We forget the sentences; But never the meaning.

We forget their facial features; But never their name.

On the Stage

PROMPT: Tweet-Tales  | GROUP: Flash Fiction

She was nervous. Her voice cracked. But she continued singing anyway, and there was no sweeter sound in her ears than the applause of the woman standing in the front row. To the woman in the front row, there was no sweeter sound than the confidence beaming off the girl on the stage.

"Of course I have - why wouldn't I?"
I've always strived for success, right? And my favourite scent is that of fresh ink on warm paper - what could possibly be better?

Gib

PROMPT: Dictionary Title  | GROUP: Flash Fiction

    There are a lot of people and things I disagree with, like the dictionary. The dictionary is literally a big, fat liar. Don't believe a word it tells you. Among its many lies, it claims that a gib is a wedge-shaped piece of metal that holds another in place. A gib doesn't have to be wedge-shaped, metal, or hold anything in place. I mean yes, a gib does hold another thing in place, until it doesn't. But when it...

To have no concerns for the consequences and just live a little for once? If you think about it, it's practically human nature to have a crazy, stupid, wild side, right? So why shouldn't we?

How do I change how I look?

PROMPT: Raining Cats and... Question Marks?  | GROUP: Flash Fiction

How can a person be so cruel? How can someone so handsome and flawless, wanted and longed for, be so mean? Can an exterior be better than what is on the inside? If so, then wouldn't that mean the frosting is better than the cake? But wouldn't it be better to have a good cake and mediocre frosting? Just as there is more cake, isn't there more to a person's insides than outs? Isn't it okay to not be beautiful?...

PROMPT: Raining Cats and... Question Marks?  | GROUP: Flash Fiction

What is this world I've woken to?
Why are the trees so white? 
What is making the stream so still?
Who took away the chirping songs of the sparrows?
Where did the green grass and flowers go?
How did this icy slush come to cover the earth?
Will it ever end?
Why do I fear it so?
Fear of danger?
Fear of death?
Or is it simply- fear of the unknown?
Why do dark clouds begin to gather?
