Flash Fiction - Psycho

My heart is pounding, my breath quickens as panic sets in. I race up the stairs, he follows a few steps behind. I don’t dare look back, he won’t have the satisfaction of seeing the fear in my eyes. I lock the door and collapse in a heap. I am in my safe place. I look around and the irony is not lost on me. Safe, in the shower room.

‘Open up Mel,’ he punches the door with each word. Anger reverberates.

I punch out the number of the emergency services. He won’t get away with this. Not this time.

Love On The Rocks



‘Here it is!’

After a long and testing walk they had finally found the rock Tom had played on as a child.

Lizzie looked in disgust at the rock, batting away the flies. The rock in the picture that Tom was holding, was perfect, this had not stood the test of time. Full of holes and infested with beetles it was not a pretty sight.

Had Tom really taken the time to get to know Lizzie he would have never brought her camping. Like the rock, their marriage had once been beautiful but now, it was just not worth saving.

You Don't Buy Me Flowers


David spotted the flowers before he had even walked into the room, two beautiful bouquets prominently displayed on the table.
‘Who are the flowers from?’
Lara smiled to herself as she plated up dinner, her back was turned but she could sense the green eyed monster from the tone of his voice.  
‘No idea, there was no note,’ she replied breezily. It had been a while since she had received any flowers. Her plan had worked.
David had slipped up, it was his job to buy flowers for his wife. Tomorrow he would call the florist and arrange a delivery.
