Dun, dun, duuun! Uh-oh, it’s that time of week again. *grin* Happy effing Friday people! I hope everyone had a great week. If not, I hope this weekend makes up for it.
Okay, here we go. I’ve written a flash fiction from the image below, which was chosen by one of my FFF comrades. Exactly 100 words, no more, no less.
Enjoy! And please feel free to leave a comment. 🙂
Flash Fiction Friday #4 ~ Turned
Dustin awakened with a Texas sized headache and a throbbing pain in his mouth. He sat up and groaned, “What’d you do to me?”
Lounged next to him, she angled her long milky legs in the air and strapped on her pumps. “I’ve turned you into the creature you’ve been trained to hunt.” Seeming intoxicated, she laughed. “Mmm, your blood muddles my senses. However, it’s delicious. I desire more.”
Compelled, he tilted his head and offered his jugular. “When my partner returns, she will kill us both.”
“I’d like to see her try.” Fangs extended, she plunged into his flesh.
Okay, this is not the norm, but this image was so inspiring that I decided to write another 100 word flash tale from a different point of view. I hope you like it. 🙂
Flash Fiction Friday ~ Turned (part 2)
Suppressing tears, Wanda stepped back from the keyhole and drew her pistol. She kicked the door in and fired.
Dodging the lethal shots, the female demon dashed toward the window.
Wanda raced behind her, unsheathed her saber and sent it cleaving through her neck. Before the creature could burst into ashes, she whirled her pistol toward Dustin.
He stood. “Do it.”
Her finger trembled over the trigger. “Dammit Dustin…”
“Could you still love me?” He walked up on her and pressed his forehead to the barrel. “Like this?”
Sobbing, she dropped her weapons and threw herself into his arms.

so there’s two posts, and they follow… That’s a wonderful idea!!!
if I had to chose, I’ll say I like the first one better… But both are great!
Thanks Jade. I started with one FF but found unconsciously continuing the story. So I decided to post it as 2 parts. That’s why I have problems writing short stories now. ^_^
I liked the first one too. I think you did an excellent job bringing paranormal aspects to this picture. Well done
Thanks Bonni! My muse is on her paranormal kick again. *snicker*
Awe, how sweet, she didn’t kill her newly demonized boyfriend. Loved your take on the picture.
LOL! Thanks Sara. Honestly, my first thought was to have her shoot him, but I gave in to a happy ending. Or is it? 😉
No killing the demon boyfriend, awe. Great perspective with both of them.
*swipes sweat from forehead* Well now I’m glad I didn’t kill Dustin off. Thank you Lindsey.
Oh, this is really cool! I like it! I love your take on the pic!
Thanks for swinging by Carrie Ann! Glad you enjoyed it.
Niiice, Yvonne! I enjoyed them both, clever girl! However…I can see someone lurking in the shadows, just behind the embracing couple. 😉
Hm, someone lurking in the shadows? I like the way you think Luna. *grin*
Love them!!! Keep up the good work.
Hey Se!!! *waves* Thanks for coming by. I’m glad you liked it. 😀
That was great Yvonne, loved the demon twist. Sadly, I think I would have shot him…maybe. ok, probably not. Well done!
LOL! Oh c’mon Erika! What if your boyfriend was Chris Hemsworth, the guy who played Thor, would you still shoot him? 😉
Great post, Yvonne! I love getting the sequel! *blushes* oh, and I’m a sucker for romance, too!
Thanks Lee! I think we all have that soft spot for romance, even if one of the lovers is a vampire. ^_^
Loved both of them! So glad you did the second one too…:D
*grin* Thank you Havan. I’m glad you enjoyed them both.
Oh, yes! Very neat – the two stories fit together perfectly, and I can see why you did two! Great decision!
I had to do it Chris. 😀 My muse would’ve kicked my butt if I hadn’t posted the second one. Thank you so much.
I love the take on the pic. Are you going to build on it?
Hey Naomi! Hm, I may build on it. Let’s see what me and Mistress Muse come up with. 😉
Two post — ambitious 🙂
Both were well done!
Thank you Venus! Glad you liked them. 🙂
I really enjoyed your take from both perspectives. I felt the intensity of the characters in both. Great FFF!
Yey! If you felt the intensity, then I’ve done my job. Thank you Davee!
Nice post’s yvonne. loved them both, but the first just had the edge for me!
Thanks Gemma! Hey, if I gave you that edge, then I did my job. 😉
Two great posts!
Thank you Cyril!
I loved that you included another flash from another POV! Great job 🙂 They were both very good reads.
I aim to please Ana. 😉 Thank for commenting.
