Love, Mom

PROMPT: Flash Fiction Competition 2020

Annie's doorbell awoke her with jolt. She painted on a counterfeit smile and trudged downstairs to answer the door. There was no one at the door, only a huge brown package was left at her doorstep. Annie lugged the bundle inside and tore it open.
Hundreds of handwritten letters were crammed inside the parcel. Confused yet curious, Annie opened the first letter. Reading it, tears welled up in her eyes. 
Dearest Annie,
Everything will be alright.
Love, Mom

The Fine Line Between Love and Hate (updated)

FREE WRITING

    I rub a sweaty hand across my bare scalp. The fabric of my pillow feels like a cactus, and my sheets like an oven. Gazing up at the stark, white ceiling of my reserved hospital room, I toss and turn, unable to fall back asleep. Just another perk of cancer. 
    Mom is out cold on the little chair in the corner of my room. I don't know how she sleeps there nearly every night. I sit up to see what...

Waiting

FREE WRITING

*a story told through inner monologue*
I can't believe this is happening. After months of waiting, it's finally here. 
This room is cold, maybe a bit warm now. I'm so excited.
Where are they? It's been awhile now.
What was that noise? Are they back?
Oh my gosh. That's them.
My newborn granddaughter. She's so beautiful.

Matched: Chapter Two, James Fikess

FREE WRITING

    Mother and I sit in the Matcher's courtroom, waiting anxiously for him to appear. Mother holds my hand and we watch the door of the courtroom.
    I let my eyes wander away and I see James Fikess and his mother both perched on a blue couch across the courtroom. He must be the other one to be taken this year.
   James and I have a complicated history. In grade school we were inseparable. Friends for life, but...

Matched: Chapter One, The Baby Blue Gown

FREE WRITING

    A baby blue gown studded with elegant pearls lie on the bed in front of me. Mother has laid it out for me, knowing I would try to avoid them.
   I place a hand on the lacy hem on the gown. The Matcher would come today and take one child above 16 from every village in Frella. Every year he goes down the line of names, this time it will be mine.
   Mother knows that this year I...
