Flash Fiction - End Of The World

This week's 100 word story based on this picture prompt

The End Of The World 

Millie clutched her throat, with only a single drop of water left in her flask she had to make it last. Her wavy blonde hair was matted, caked in blood and dust. Left for dead, that was some blow to her head.
She had been afraid of taking a gap year but Frederique had convinced her to go. She had trusted him, this was how she had been repaid.
She glanced around, her vision hazy, it was like the end of the world. In the distance the mountain glowed, whispering ‘Not the end, the beginning.’ She had to make it.


Hope you liked it

  1. If Frederique's the one who did this to her, he's quite the cad.

  8. Very well written! I hope there's a nice little cantina over the hill. :)
    Even though this is short fiction, I'd suggest you divide your tale into three paragraphs, separating past ("She had been...:") from present reality.

  9. I'm getting a Beatrix Kiddo vibe from this Millie character. Frederique sure has something nasty coming towards him. Good one, Bettina.
