Breakdown-Friday Fictioneers Flash Fiction Photo Prompt!

Hello all!

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.

Breakdown.

It started out slow.

A virus, they said.

Only affecting animals.

Don’t panic.

We weren’t prepared.

One bite.

That’s all it took.

We were sat in the queue of cars evacuating.

Then the screams started.

Trapped.

I blink back tears, as I fight against hands and nails that claw at me.

“Dad!”

His bloodshot eyes stare through me.

Teeth snapping.

He lunges.

“Saphire move!”

I freeze.

Blood drips down my forehead, ears ringing, eyes wide.

My brother lowers the gun.

“We need to go Saphire.”

“But dad?”

“He wasn’t dad anymore.”

“What happens now Tom?”

“We try to stay alive.”

    • Hated that sentence, but not enough time to keep playing with it, and should have had a comma after cars…oh well, that’s what you get when you only have 15 minutes to write and post. Thank you so much hun 🙂

  1. Oh what a terrific story! Tension, suspense, really tight! Telling it in 100 words helps, sure, but it has to come from a fertile brain.

    Super, Heidin! Sounded like my dad having a session of waiting in the Driver’s License Bureau … 😀
