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 – 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.

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 – 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”)

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

Flash Fiction – Get Up (Stories on a Theme “Parent”)

“Get up,” Unle said, resting her cutlass under her son’s chin. She could feel the eyes of the crew, watching her every move. Hulan looked up at her with hate and defiance in his eyes. Even from here, she could see the tell tale sign of the star sickness, the bruising down the neck and… Continue reading Flash Fiction – Get Up (Stories on a Theme “Parent”)

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

Greyn slid the heavy gold coin across the wooden table. The metal made an awful scraping noise in the otherwise silent room. The fortune teller looked down at the coin, the bells laced into his hair tinkling together as he did so. “What brings the Daughter of the Queen here?” the fortune teller asked, waving… Continue reading Flash Fiction – Hidden Future (Stories on a Theme “Mystery”)

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

Arian lay her grandmother’s will out on the table in front of her. The house was quiet now, the family now having left hours before.  It was amazing how much a few words could tear apart them all, in so little time. Battles over the inheritance, battles over the legitimacy of their mother Irene, battles… Continue reading Flash Fiction – Keeping Secrets (Stories on a Theme “Mystery”)
