From Goodbye to Hello

PROMPT: Flash Fiction Competition 2016

My knuckles were white against the steering wheel. The passenger seat was an empty hole, burning through the bottom of the car. In an inappropriate gesture, I had dropped the daisy for her hair into an open, half-finished water bottle. Already, I could picture the soft strands brushing against my hand, the cuff of the dark suit, a final time. My heart was heavy and so were my feet as I slammed on the gas, eyes blurring over with painful...

The Former Title Holder

PROMPT: Illumination

You could see the aging grace in the expensive fabrics of her clean-cut outfit. Her entire being was composed to the point of transcendency, hair held unnaturally still by hairspray, face held unnaturally still by botox.

Through the discomfort of the carpets threads woven like fraying memories, I could feel decades of children sitting there before me, looking at the same pale pink walls and floral curtains surrounding...

Green

PROMPT: Improbable Flavor

Pollution

PROMPT: Ripple Effect

I spend my time in a dorm in Beijing, where the walls are a greasy gray, and the floor is coated in the dust and dirt that sticks to the bottoms of my feet after I shower.
After one espically homesick day, I look up to see the stars that dot the sky over my family's cottage in Georgia.
There is nothing; the sky is as grey as the walls of my new home.
Please bring back our stars.
