The Way Through (micro fiction)

Fantasy Forest by renanrdgs

The Way Through

Passage through the forest was viable she had been informed, but the forest itself was inhabited by elves who shot humans on sight, apparently. Nevertheless, she plunged into the forest while making as little noise as possible.

“Human!’ A voice said from the treetops. “What are you doing here?”

“Just passing through.” She replied nervously.

“Keep moving!” The voice commanded. She moved as fast as she could. When she eventually came back out into the sunlight, she reckoned she heard laughter behind her.

No Deal (micro fiction)

No Deal

“You reneged on our agreement, so I’m afraid we can no longer do business together.” She informed him.

“We never had an agreement since we never pinky sweared on it.” He told her.

“Pinky sweared? We’re adults. Adults don’t close agreements with a pinky swear.” She replied incredulously.

“Says you!”

Late Night Incident (micro fiction)

Late Night Incident

Sara knocked on my door late one evening. There were bruises on her face and a nasty cut on her arm, which I quickly bandaged before taking her to the hospital and contacting the police. Why this beautiful woman was living with such a violent man I couldn’t fathom. If she had been into women, I would have gladly lived with her.

A Night at the Opera (flash fiction)

A Night at the Opera

“It’s the opera tonight isn’t it?” Sylvia asked.

“Yes indeed my love.” Katherine confirmed.

“Which one?”

“Don Giovanni.” Katherine informed her.

“Ah, Mozart! I knew Mozart you know.” Katherine rolled her eyes at Sylvia’s remark.

“You knew everyone.”

Both of them wore long black dresses to the opera house. Once they were seated in their own box, Katherine brought out a flask and poured some blood into two glasses. They toasted the evening and drank.

“Drat, I hoped this would be warmer.” Sylvia remarked.

“Well during the break we can always get some more.” Katherine suggested.

The Castle Tour (flash fiction)

The Castle Tour

“This is the Alcazar of Segovia. It dates from the early twelfth century.” Megan and Nicole’s guide said as they entered what looked like a fairy-tale castle. “It’s believed to be the inspiration for the Walt Disney castle.” While being shown around with the other tourists, they discreetly held hands.

“It is like being in a fairy-tale.” Megan commented.

“Definitely!” Nicole agreed. They quickly disappeared down a corridor and began kissing. After all, it was their honeymoon.

Dazzling (poem)

Dazzling


Her eyes were dazzling
I opened the door wide
letting her into my room

she walked up to me,
began kissing my neck
then I felt her fangs

puncture my throat
she drank my blood
as I stood there helpless

under her command
leaving me weak
I know tomorrow night

she'll visit again

The Onlooker (flash fiction)

The Onlooker

Katherine watched on the celebrations at her neighbour’s place. Every year they held their annual jamboree and their partying often went on into the early morning. Katherine preferred to watch it all from the darkness of her residence.

Every jamboree they made their customary ritual to invite her to join them, but she knew in her heart it was not wise for her to revel among them. She watched their festivities for a while longer and then returned to the silence and emptiness of her crypt.

Battle Plan (micro fiction)

Battle Plan

“It’s no good. They always overwhelm us and kill our wizard.”

“We just have to try a different variation.” Chandra explained. “How about you elves hold the line against the zombies, with my help, and our dragons attack their wizard.”

“There’ll be air defences.”

“We can but try.” Chandra urged. The elf looked at the oncoming hoard of zombies. Why was she taking orders from a Planeswalker anyway?

Yet another Magic the Gathering fiction. This was inspired by a guy I used to play whose deck always seemed to produce multiplying zombies, which usually overwhelmed my defences…

“Time heals all wounds.” they said. It had been a year since Madeline had broken up with Kelly, yet she was still hurting. How long would it take for her to feel normal again? Sometimes it seemed like she was the only one who felt like this.
