Flash Fiction – Underling (From the Archives)

Elaya looked down on the bodies of her fallen foes with sadness. Is this what it feels like, she thought, to be a hero? Luckily her helmet stopped the smell of the charred bodies from getting to her, but the vision was enough. They had mowed down the assailants, Underlings from the depths of the ruins which… Continue reading Flash Fiction – Underling (From the Archives)

Flash Fiction – Disguise (Stories on a Theme – “Facade”)

Tariik threw the cloak at Raen. “Put it on,” he said. Raen picked up the cloak, disgusted. She had been the lowly begger last week. It should be Tariik’s turn to put on the stupid outfit and pretend to be robbed by Raen.  Raen sniffed the cloak. It still smelt of gutter oil and mud… Continue reading Flash Fiction – Disguise (Stories on a Theme – “Facade”)

Flash Fiction – End of Times (A Teacup Story)

Bethes sighed as he breathed in the steam from the bowl in front of him. Every time he said it would be the last time, but then it happened again. And again. And again. Bethes could feel the steam do its work as it spread through his airways, and then seeped into his bloodstream. The… Continue reading Flash Fiction – End of Times (A Teacup Story)

Flash Fiction – Rooftop Highway (From the Archives)

“Did you really have to kill everyone?” Hainne asked, exasperated. She sat down with a heavy thump next to her twin, who was currently fiddling with the end of her dagger. Their spot wasn’t as secluded as Hainne would like, but hidden here behind the chimneys of the buildings they would both be able to catch… Continue reading Flash Fiction – Rooftop Highway (From the Archives)

Flash Fiction – Shot to the Head (From the Archives)

“Don’t mind if I do,” Phevra said as she stepped over the decimated corpse of the bar owner. Her boots were heavy against the wood floor, echoing through the empty bar and probably to the enhanced ears of the few Afterlifes that were wandering around the town. She pulled a shot glass from under the… Continue reading Flash Fiction – Shot to the Head (From the Archives)

Flash Fiction – Burning Red (A Teacup Story)

Suzza sat on her bed, surrounded by the ripped pieces of her letters. Each one had contained the years of heartache and love that she had poured into her relationship with Netr. Before she had joined the Tombhunters, before when he had promised that she was his only and that she had his heart. And… Continue reading Flash Fiction – Burning Red (A Teacup Story)

Flash Fiction – Mask (Stories on a Theme – “Facade”)

Vineck pulled the mask over his face. The long beak of the mask stuck our a good half a foot from his face.  He adjusted the straps at the back of his head. It was heavy, heavier than he remembered it was last week when he had done this.  But this week is different, he… Continue reading Flash Fiction – Mask (Stories on a Theme – “Facade”)

Flash Fiction – Discovery (100 Words)

“What is it?” Bethany said, as Trev pulled the box out of the ground. Even under the protective shade of their tent, the heat was still oppressive. “I think,” Trev said, breathing heavily as he heaved the box onto the top of the trench, “we’ve struck gold.” Bethany grinned. It was this. What they had… Continue reading Flash Fiction – Discovery (100 Words)

Flash Fiction – Leave me Be (Stories on a Theme – “Space”)

Vekna wiped her blade clean with a bloodied rag.  The blood sluced off the end of the blade, dripping onto the muddy stone floor. The body of the Corps agent lay at her feet, limbs splayed in an unnatural way. “Oops,” Vekna said, sheathing her sword. The Corps were so inefficient with the people they… Continue reading Flash Fiction – Leave me Be (Stories on a Theme – “Space”)
