It Was Over As Soon As It Began

flashfictionlogoI don’t write flash fiction.  I don’t normally read it either, but I came across these and only one word came to mind.  Wow!!  I don’t know who wrote them and I don’t know what or where the original source came from, but they are quite powerful.  Enjoy!

10. Strangers.  Friends.  Best Friends.  Lovers.  Strangers.

11. An only son, a folded flag.

12.  Passengers, this isn’t your captain speaking.

13. “Just Married,” read the shattered window.

14. Siri, delete mom from my contacts.

15. Jumped.  Then I changed my mind.

16. He hit send, then a tree.

17. Ever seen chalk outlines that small?

18. Dad left.  A flag came back.
