My Boyfriend

I've only been dating flash fiction for about eight months. So far, it's working out well. I like it, and I think it likes me, but you can never be sure, right? New relationships are tough. But flash makes me laugh and forces me to get to the point a hell of a lot quicker than I usually do. So, I think I'm going to stay in this relationship for awhile and see what it has to offer. So far, I really like its friends and that goes a long way. This week's 99 word prompt was to write a serious scene interrupted by something absurd. Head on over to Carrot Ranch Communications and see what the other Rough Writers have whipped up. 

He hunched over on the cold bench, head sagging and elbows heavy on his thighs. “I love you, I do. I just feel like we’re so disconnected.”
Wrapping her arms around her waist, she shivered, feeling the wind bite at the skin of her cheeks, raw with tears.
A shadow fell over them, blocking the sun, and she looked up to see a man dressed in tight black clothes, his face white, beret askew. Eyes wide, the man pantomimed climbing a ladder and being trapped in a prison.
“Fuck off, mime,” they said in unison and smiled, hands reaching.


  1. This is just awesome! I realized I just commented on Google rather than on your blog post. I'm still chuckling! Keep dating flash fiction! You're a cute couple!

  2. Thanks for setting us up Charli. I think you're a talented matchmaker.

  3. Ha ha! I think flash fiction is keeping a few of us in tow!
