Promises – Friday Fictioneers Flash Fiction Photo Prompt!

It’s time for the Friday Fictioneers again! I’ve been missing in action for a couple of weeks so apologies for not getting back to everyone. I hope to catch up with all that I’ve missed soon. The aim of Friday Fictioneers is to use the photo prompt below and write a piece of flash fiction of 100 words. A photo prompt is put up every Wednesday by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields , our wonderful hostess.

Zac’s hard black wings wrapped around her, shielding them as the shadows descended.
