FLASH FICTION FRIDAY

Hello my pretties and welcome to Flash Fiction Friday, where you will find one hundred words per week based upon a picture chosen at random by either myself or my cohorts in this marvellous adventure.  Make sure you follow the link at the bottom of this post to see what other delights await you.



Here I sit on her right side like some giant gooseberry.  She, of course, keeps leaning in to hear what he’s saying.  That’s what he does, draws them in like a moth to a flame, with his big eyes and charming smile—asshole. The sight of her red hair brushing against his cheek as she moves in closer still and her tinkling laugh grates on my nerves as she bats her eyelashes.

It’s my own fault for introducing them. He catches my gaze and telegraphs silent thanks. I smile encouragingly—idiot.

My best friend and my sister… what’ve I done?


See you next week!

  3. You know exactly what you've done, and wish you hadn't. I sense a tinge of jealousy, and of course nobody is ever good enough for your sister. Good post!
