Coming Out 2 (flash fiction)

Coming Out 2

“I have something to tell you.” Nina said after she walked into the room. Andrea who was working on her computer swiveled her office chair around and faced her.

“What is it?” Andrea asked.

“I’m a vampire.” Nina admitted.

“Yeah I know.” Andrea replied nonchalantly. Nina looked at her surprised.

“You know? How?”

“Well for starters, you sleep all day and only seem to appear once it’s dark. That’s a bit of a dead giveaway, if you pardon the expression. Also your skin’s always been very pale and cold, and you never consume anything apart from the red “smoothies” you always seem to drink. I had it figured out pretty early on.” Andrea told her.

“You did? I thought you’d be terrified.” Nina answered.

“Nah. Just remember you’re my friend, and nothing can change that. I certainly don’t hate vampires or anything.”

“Thanks. You know I’ve always wanted to drink your blood.” Nina told her. Andrea screwed up her nose.

“I’m flattered, but sorry I’m not into that vampire stuff myself, but I’m always here if you want to talk.”

“Okay. Can we hug?” Nina asked.

“Sure!” Andrea replied. She stood up and the two of them hugged. Andrea suddenly felt Nina’s fangs on her neck. “Oy! No means no!”

“Sorry.” Nina replied backing off.

Near the end of last year I wrote a story called Coming Out. I decided to rework it. It explores the same idea, but in a different way.

I may have been exposed to Covid on public transport recently. I was wearing a mask and I have been vaccinated, but you never know. If I suddenly go quiet for a while, you know why.

Caught (flash fiction)

Caught

Thinking he was alone, Kyle dressed up in his sister’s clothes. Looking in the mirror, he wondered if he was really a girl. Just then Hannah unexpectedly walked through the doorway.

“What are you doing in my room freak?” she asked. In a panic he ran to his own bedroom. A short time later Hannah knocked on his door. “Can I have my dress back? That one doesn’t fit you anyway. Here are some of my older ones that would be more your size. Just don’t go in my room again.”

She left Kyle a box full of clothes.

This is the second one I’ve done on the prompt, though the first one I wrote. LGBT issues are not often as crowd pleasing as other subjects…

Learning to Walk (flash fiction)

Learning to Walk

Briana selected the pair of red stilettos and began putting them on in store.

“Excuse me, um, miss, are you sure want to try those on?” the store assistant asked frowning at her.

“Yes I have to learn how to walk in heels at some point.” Briana replied.

She stood up and tried to take a step. She swayed, and eventually began to topple over, the store assistant managing to break her fall.

“Again, are you really sure you wouldn’t prefer some flats?”

“A girl’s gotta try.” Briana responded as she stood up again and took one more step.
