I hope you are well and ready for some more Flash Fiction. As always, we are given our photo prompt by our wonderful Friday Fictioneer leader, Rochelle . The rules are to write a story in 100 words, using the photo prompt as inspiration. I’m trying something a bit different this week, this story is happening at the same time as Waiting For You .
So here is my attempt for this week. I hope you enjoy it.

I’ll Be Waiting.
My hands shake.
I’m handcuffed to the bed in bay three.
I can hear what they’re saying.
They all know what I did.
The curtains ruffle in bay two next to me, someone’s crying.
“My Mia…how can she be dead! Someone tell me how!”
The cries grow louder.
Because of me.
That came from bay four.
“Time of death…Chris Jones…parents on their way…”
My heart stutters. Can’t catch my breath.
Monitors spring to life.
A dark figure appears at my side, ignored by all the nurses.
“I’ll be waiting for you.”
Thank you so much for taking the time to read my offering! If you fancy reading some more stories from the Friday Fictioneers please click on the little blue froggy, you won’t be disappointed!

With all the usual suspects assembled: the jilted lover, mistress, wife, and of course, a butler. It is up to Inspector Colquhoun and Sergeant Penny to work out “whodunit!”
