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 do apologise for my being behind with reading everyone’s work. I am hoping to catch up shortly.
So here is my attempt for this week. I hope you enjoy it.

It started out slow.
A virus, they said.
Only affecting animals.
We weren’t prepared.
That’s all it took.
We were sat in the queue of cars evacuating.
Then the screams started.
I blink back tears, as I fight against hands and nails that claw at me.
His bloodshot eyes stare through me.
Blood drips down my forehead, ears ringing, eyes wide.
My brother lowers the gun.
“We need to go Saphire.”
“He wasn’t dad anymore.”
“What happens now Tom?”
“We try to stay alive.”
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!
