Flash Fiction - Psycho

A 100 word story based on this picture prompt

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.


Hope you enjoyed this story.
