Five Sentence Fiction - Pieces

I've just managed to get this weeks Five Sentence Fiction in before the deadline. Great photo, great prompt. Enjoy!


When she dropped the granite statue into the middle of the glass table, it shattered with a boom, making her smile; she’d always wanted to do that ever since she’d laid eyes on the damn thing.

He’d loved it more than her, always polishing it, nagging her every time she wanted to put a drink on it, using it as a tool to compare her imperfections to - even holding her face against it. She wondered how he’d love it now.

She relished the crunching sound as she walked across the floor to the door, grinding her heels hard into it, making sure it left marks on the tiled floor, although none of them would be as deep as the marks he’d left on her – and not just those he’d made with his fists.  

She grabbed her case and went to the front door, wishing she could be a fly on the wall when he got home.

Daily Picspiration - The Bend

My fortnightly Daily Picspiration was posted on Sunday.

I wrote this little piece in a bit of a rush, while a writer friend from the US was staying over. The photo talked to me and I had the first line straight away, which is all I needed. It is a sort of a twist on another, rather famous car crash, which in some ways inspired it. Can you work out which one?  Enjoy!

Daily Picspiration - Cable Terrors

My fortnightly Daily Picspiration was posted on Sunday.

I have returned to one off flash pieces inspired by photos and this one definitely did that. As someone with a fear of heights I have been put in this situation so it wasn't hard for me to write.
