Flash Fiction-I'm Going To Pick These For You

Hello everyone. Hope everyone is keeping warm. It's very cold where I live. Hope these picture of the lilies make you think warm thoughts. Happy Thanksgiving to all the US readers! Have a great weekend!

 
 
 
I'm Going To Pick These For You
 
 
The pink color caught my eye first. I knew it was your favorite color.
I was hoping these flowers would make up for my mistake.
I know I walked out before we should have talked. But I was so mad I had to get distance.
So, this is the beginning of my apology and I hope now we can talk.
I promise from now on to talk first instead of running away.
If we can get past this I know that we can make it.
Please say yes and make me the happiest I've ever been.
I'll pick these for you right now.
I can't wait to be together again.

FLASH FICTION-INTO THE FROSTED FOREST

Hi and hope everyone is keeping warm these days. Hope the sun is at least shining where you are.
I hope you enjoy today's flash fiction. Have a great weekend!




Into The Frosted Forest
 
 
It's pure whiteness couldn't help but lure you in. I hesitated all the same.
Questions of what was in there raced through my mind.
Stories of magical faeries of course always were heard but there were others in inside the magical forest. What were they and what would they do to me?
The faeries I was told would not bother you as they weren't interested in humans unless we caught their attention on purpose. That I did not ever do. I knew better.
No, there were stories of white frosted horses that galloped through the forest and they would stop and offer you a ride through the forest.
This was very ill advised to do. It was said that they would enchant you and you would never be let down.
Even scarier were the magical flying centaurs with their black eyes that sparkled like black onyx against the blue sky.
No, as much as the winds whispers from the  Frosted Forest invited me to come visit, I backed up.
I had turned almost all the way around when I heard a noise.  When I looked up there was a young man standing there with snow white hair that shone against the blue sky. He was so tall and lean and the way he stood there staring at me with those black eyes. He was breath taking, really.
He held out his hand for me to take.
My hand hovered over his and just when I was about to touch him a gust of cold wind blew me back. When I sat up the young man was gone and I knew that I needed to get up and go back home.
This was not meant for me.
I turned and never looked back into the Frosted Forest.

FLASH FICTION -APPLES , DECEPTION AND A FROG

Hi and hope everyone is keeping warm. Winter is creeping in where I live. Today I have some flash fiction. It's a bit longer than my usual flash fiction. Hope you enjoy. Have a great weekend!



Apples, Deception And a Frog
 
 
 
The faerie boy tried to tell me that they were as sweet as I was. But I knew those apples were past their day. When you looked at them they were picture perfect and you wanted to pick one and take a bite.
I tried to get his name but he was coy and wouldn't reveal it. If I could find out, he would have to come good on the apples and tell me the truth. I asked  him, "Why do you want me to take a bite anyway?"
His smile was equal to a warm sunny day. He filled my thought full of summer fun and urges to go ahead and take the apples.
I shook my head at him and frowned. That didn't make him happy. A glimmer of sun shimmered in his blond hair and his green forest eyes drank me in.
I shifted at his charm and tried to back away. I knew that I shouldn't have attracted his attention to begin with. What was I thinking?
With one fluid motion he was standing in front of me towering down at me. The smell of over ripe apples devoured me. "Take a bite my love and you can play with me forever. Wouldn't you like that?"
I swallowed hard but I threw my chin up at him. "I will not take one bite of your rotten apples or play with you. You want to trick me and that is all."
His laugh sounded like a summer breeze blowing away the scent of the apples. "I knew you would say that," he said a with grin that made him look more devious than ever.
I thought I could run for it but faeries were fast. There would be no chance.
The only way would be to beat him at his own game but I was pretty sure he would cheat anyway.
I turned my back on him instead and slowly walked way. I waited to see if he would run up behind me. He did not come running.
Apart of me was relieved but suspicious all the same.
I was half way to the house when I felt his presence behind me.
My focus was ahead but it was not meant to be.
Now he was standing in my way blocking me grinning. He was so beautiful to look at.
His forest green eyes held me still the way he wanted.
My mouth went to say something when his finger pressed against my lips. I watched him with my chest thumping loudly.
"No need to fear me love. Your wildly thumping heart is what I want you to feel when you love me back." His smile was pure sunshine and this time the smell of sweet roses took me.
He sighed, "Ahh, what am I to do with you love?"
A noise to the right caught both our attention. Sitting on one of the large stones that enclosed a flower bed was a large frog.
The faerie boy screwed up his nose.
"So, I see you found another play thing. Is that the best you can do?"
Now the faerie boy was annoyed.
"Hmm, I wonder what favour I could ask of you ... by saying your name." It appeared the frog was almost smiling.
The faerie boy started to stutter and his glimmer of sunshine was now quite dim.
"She is not my play thing. I was ... just... on my way...
With a blink of an eye he was gone and the frog leaped after him.
I was left standing there alone. When I looked down there was three over ripe apples and one dried up rose.
I made a vow to myself to never attract their attention again.

CAT FLASH FICTION-SO YOU WANT TO KNOW...

Hi everyone. Today is cat flash fiction. Hope you enjoy. Have a great weekend!



So You Want To Know
 
 Well, it wasn't easy let me tell you. It started almost the moment I got here.
But I kept my wits about me and staked out the place pretty quickly.
The one who thought I didn't belong was quite opinionated  but so  was I. I didn't back down. I stood on all four paws and made myself heard.
She is bigger than me but I'm quicker.
Never mind the stuffing me under the desk anymore. I figured it out.
So, you wanna know how I did it?
Bribe. Yup that's all it took.
Well, that wasn't all. I found out an embarrassing secret about her that she didn't want the others to know.
That was the clincher. So now I do pretty much what I want.
So, now you know.
