WonHundred Word Wednesday: Home Sweet Home

Hey there awesome readers! Here's this week's flash fiction!

The prompt: The place had a radiance about it

My story:

The front door creaked as I pushed it open, the scent of dust strong in the air. “Home sweet home,” I murmured. Though it had been empty for two years and was in serious need of some TLC, the place had a radiance about it. I could already picture how it would look once everything was cleaned up.

The door swung shut behind me, making me jump. I turned, but no one was there. The lights flickered and a chill swept through the air, making me shiver.

I’d considered getting a roommate, but hadn’t planned on her being a ghost.

WonHundred Word Wednesday: Lose Everything

Oh my, it's Wednesday and it's late. But I'm here! I've got another Regency for ya today. So travel back to 1820, London, England

The prompt: If you leave now, you lose everything.

My story:

I remained still, one hand on the doorknob, refusing to break Father’s stare, though my heart thudded painfully.

“If you leave now, you lose everything. I will ensure you receive nothing of the inheritance,” he said, his voice as cold as his eyes.

Losing the money meant little now. I did not lower my gaze.

Seeming to sense my resolve, Father lowered his voice. “Understand me, child, I do mean everything. The inheritance, your home, your family.”

My mouth fell open.

He smirked, knowing he had me trapped.

My brain worked furiously. Was true love worth trading for my family?

WonHundred Word Wednesday: The Slip

Hey there readers! It's Wednesday again and I'm here with another Flash Fiction for ya. This week, I bring you a tiny bit from my book Circumstance. So once again, we travel back to Regency England. 

The prompt: Her foot slipped ans she started to fall

My Story:

Audrey stepped on a sheet of hard ice. Her foot slipped and she started to fall. Mr. Bryant caught her easily about the waist, holding her until she regained her footing. She lifted her face toward his, a mere breath away, her heart thudding mercilessly. He released her, but laced her hand through his arm.

“Perhaps I ought to assist you.”

Audrey nearly argued, knowing the battle between mind and heart that would ensue. But the tenderness in his eyes convinced her to accept. Besides, the day was fine, the company more than pleasant, and it was Christmas after all. 

This is a piece of a scene that I just love! I fixed it up to match the prompt a little nicer than the original scene. This book is not yet published, but I can't wait for the time that it's ready! I hope you enjoyed it and don't forget to check out our Facebook page to read the rest of the stories. Happy reading!

WonHundred Word Wednesday: The Old Woman

Hey it's Wednesday! After flaking out last week, I'm back this week. And here's this week's story.

The prompt: The old woman turned and smiled

My Story:

The woman stood stooped over a table, her back to Amber.

“I will tell you where to find your necklace, my dear Princess. But first you must do something for me.”

Relief flooded Amber’s heart. She’d been foolish to wear the necklace, to lose it, foolish to risk the kingdom’s safety. But at last, the journey was nearly over. At last she could return home to her father. “Yes, please tell me. I will do anything.”

The witch’s laugh sent shivers down Amber’s spine. The old woman turned and smiled. “All I need you to do, is kill the king!”
