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 … More Flash Fiction – Rooftop Highway (From the Archives)

Flash Fiction – Fleeing Monsters (From the Archives)

“So, you think this was a good idea?” Garek said cheerfully. Too cheerfully. They were the only ones left from their little group. It wouldn’t take long until the monsters found them too. Janee cradled the small stick of information that could hold the keys to defeating the creatures. Their last hope. Bevan had given … More Flash Fiction – Fleeing Monsters (From the Archives)

Most people did after spending years in the Elites, it was the only way of coping. “Thanks for pointing that out,” Niin said, kicking an arm out of the way and sitting down … More Flash Fiction – Aftermath (From the Archives)

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

Flash Fiction – Starfield (Stories on a Theme – “Space”)

“Let’s go,” Necah said as he jumped over the boxes of strewn food and into his seat. Around them, the Guards swarmed, loading up their laser guns to try and cripple the Andreni to the ground. “Get the sheilds up!,” Bethli yelled as the first wave of fire hit the ship. Necah could feel the … More Flash Fiction – Starfield (Stories on a Theme – “Space”)

Flash Fiction – Vacuum (Stories on a Theme – “Space”)

Geyle watched the world spin below her. She tapped her foot gently on the window that separated her from the vacuum of space. The sound echoed inside the table, a gentle tap tap tap to match the gentle rhythm of her heartbeat. Most hated the training area, being exposed on four sides to the vast … More Flash Fiction – Vacuum (Stories on a Theme – “Space”)

Flash Fiction – Clues (Stories on a Theme “Mystery”)

“Why,” Cassie groaned as she put her head on her desk. The system had logged her out again and she needed to get to the fingerprint database to cross reference the results from forensics. “What?” Terry poked his head above his cubicle, his glasses sitting askew on his nose. No one would even guess he … More Flash Fiction – Clues (Stories on a Theme “Mystery”)

Flash Fiction – Beyond Humanity (Stories on a Theme “Human”)

“You think this will help?” Treyko asked, twisting his head in the vice of the chair. Even now, he still smiled. Heelna remembered those days, before she too had been plugged into the mainframe. Easier days, simpler days. “You know it will,” Heelna replied, as she tightened the wrist straps on Treyko’s wrists and upper … More Flash Fiction – Beyond Humanity (Stories on a Theme “Human”)

Flash Fiction – Out There (Stories on a Theme “Travel”)

“You see it?”  Veeni nodded, despite the fact that RED could not see her from this angle. The problem with AI computers was that they relied upon the ship’s cameras to see their crew, and this spot purposefully didn’t have a camera. It was the ship’s temple, albeit a small one. It also happened to … More Flash Fiction – Out There (Stories on a Theme “Travel”)

Flash Fiction – Early Evening Memories (From the Archives)

It wasn’t silent, there were still signs of life out there on the fields below. The workers had already gone back to their homes as the light fell away from the sky, but the birds were singing their final songs of the day. Above, a few reptiles flew ahead high up in the sky, their enormous triangle wings blocking out swathes of the sky as their riders directed them back to their roots. … More Flash Fiction – Early Evening Memories (From the Archives)
