Under The Sea-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 busy learning lines for The Hollow and taking children to hospital appointments, whilst gearing up for the holiday’s. I am hoping to catch up shortly.

So here is my attempt for this week.  I hope you enjoy it.

Under the Sea.

The boat bobs up and down on the gentle waves.

I blink against the bright sunlight.

The shoreline barely visible.

“Fancy a swim?”

“I can’t…”

He lifts me in his strong tanned arms.

I squeal as he jumps.

“No!”

The salt water coats my skin, my body tingling.

It’s happening.

I can’t stop it.

My legs are replaced by shimmering coral scales.

I have to get away!

“Sophie?”

“You’re…” his turquoise tail twitches, “like me.”

He grins.

“We’re the last of our kind.”

“We don’t have to be.” He winks at me and I chuckle.

“Well…if we must…” His mouth captures mine, swallowing my words.

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.”

Fight or Flight?

By Heidi Busby Brown

The moon shines down on the small town.

Humans flee, curtains twitch as we pass by.

The smell of magic taints the air, sweet and sickly.

I tug against the guard’s grip.

“You took the life of one of our own…”

“To save a human child…” I shout.

“Enough! Let the hunt begin!”

I run.

The streets are a maze, alley’s and dead ends.

They’re closing in on me.

I’m trapped.

A door creaks open.

Hands grab at me.

“Quiet!”

A room filled with humans.

“Tonight, we take back our town!” The man said, weapon raised, “will you help us?”

“Yes.”

 Cold – Hearted.

 

Intricate patterns of ice cover the windows, blocking my sight.

Haunted by memories.

Lucien’s warm smile, stolen kisses, his confession of love.

I waited for him…but he never came.

The screams of terror…so much death…

My kingdom was brought to its knees, in a single night.

I hear the key twist in the lock as I wipe away my tears.

“You made the right choice Princess. It would have been cruel indeed, for such beauty and power to be wiped from the realm.”

I shudder as his lips graze my cheek.

“I’ve just got back Lucas, this had better be important…”

“Lucien?” I gasp.

“Adrianna?”

Lucas smirks, “My fiancé, Adrianna…my little brother, Prince Lucien.”

Timing is everything.

Love Notes.

Nathaniel’s fingers glide over the keys as the music builds.

Our guests lose themselves in the notes and each other.

It’s what he does best.

A master of the ceremony, feeding off them as he plays.

A sea of flesh lies before me, their glistening bodies entwined.

Hands touching, stroking.

Hips thrusting, as they are swept away with the beat.

I lick my lips, savouring the taste.

Love, desire and lust and if I’m not mistaken, a hint of jealousy.

It’s a heady combination.

The sweet groans of satisfaction, drown out the final note.

“Delicious.”

“Full?”

“Yes…but there’s always room for dessert.”

Guardian.

A cold breeze tickles my face.

She’s back.

“He’s here.” Lisa whispers.

 I shiver.

I hear him shouting and things smashing.

I blink and rub my eyes as she points to my wardrobe.

“Hide.”

I climb in amongst my clothes.

Lisa presses a finger to her mouth and the doors close on me.

A scream.

Gun shots fired.

Footsteps.

My bedroom door creaks open.

I hold my breath, squeezing my eyes shut as tears run down my cheeks.

“Found her!” The policeman shouts.

Lisa stands in the corner of my room watching.

“Thank you.” I whisper.

Lisa nods and with a little wave, my big sister disappears.

 Bite Me.

I gasped for breath as I pressed myself up against the cold stone wall.

Trapped.

The Alpha stepped out of the shadows, golden eyes wide with excitement.

His ears pricked up as howls echoed around us.

They were coming.

He edged closer, his silver fur glistened in the moonlight.

My heart raced.

The air vibrated around us, bones snapped, fur slid away to reveal soft skin.

“Caught you.” Zac said, lifting my chin.

“Bite me.” I snapped.

“Oh, I intend to.”

“No…you can’t.”

I gasped as he feathered kisses down my neck and circled my shoulder.

“Mine.” His teeth pierced my flesh, claiming me.

“I…” It was overwhelming…I could feel him everywhere.

My wolf took over and I bit down on his shoulder.

“Mine.”

A lone howl filled with sorrow, split the night.

What have I done?

I’ll Be Waiting.

 

My hands shake.

Words fail.

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.

“Stand clear.”

That came from bay four.

Please no!

“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.

“Who… are…you?”

“Mia’s Grandad.”

“I’m…so..sorry..”

“I’ll be waiting for you.”

Waiting For You. 

 I fidget on the blue metal seats, designed for discomfort.

A middle-aged couple rush through the doors and straight to the desk.

“Mum?”

She’s crying as they are led away.

 I follow and watch as they disappear through the pale green curtains of bay two.

‘Are you ok?’

Startled, I stepped back.

Faded grey eyes stare up at me, as I took in her white curled hair and small features. She smiled at me.

‘I’m just waiting.’

She nods, “I know.”

There’s a burst of activity in bay four.

‘Stand clear.’ A deep voice hollered.

My boyfriend steps through the curtains of bay four.

“Chris!”

“Mia!”

He sweeps me into his arms.

“I thought I’d lost you…the crash, I’m so sorry.”

“It wasn’t your fault.”I glance towards bay three as Chris tenses in my arms.

“Grandma?”

That can’t be right, he’d said she was…

The old woman walks towards us, her smile lighting up her wrinkled face,“now that you’re both here, shall we go?”

“But…”

“All will be explained when we get there Mia.” She takes Chris’s hand in hers.

“Where?”

My Grandad steps out of bay three. My mouth hangs open in shock.

I remember the last time I saw him…just before he died.

He winks at me,“you’ll see.”
