Hello, Hello! Flash Fiction Friday is here again. Is it me, or are the weeks flying by lately? Geesh.

A 100 word story, picture prompt. This weeks picture was chosen by Lisa Worrall.

Check out the other interpretations from the links below.



“What are you doing on the dresser, sweets?”

Sara crossed the sterile bedroom and sat on the rumpled bed. She looked around, taking in the empty bottles. When she glanced up at Scott, his head rested on his knees, arms locked tight. She’d never witnessed her brother so miserable.

His eyes held haunted knowledge.

Sara stood, walked to the closet and opened it.


One man had the power to bring her brother to his knees. To put that hollow edge to his cheeks. Then she noticed the tear tracks.

“Where’s Mark?”

Scott’s will broke. “He left.”

About the author

I'm a work in progress who adores dark chocolate, the fresh mountain air, and the sound of rushing rivers. My mind is a chaotic mixture of realism and dreams, tempered by my four spirited children and creative husband. I'm a multi-genre author at the whim of my erratic muse. I'm a yoga enthusiast, natural food lover, and I love body art.

    I’m guessing she’s the older sister. Well, she needs to tell him to get dressed and stop being a wuss. Tough love he needs tough love.

    Aww, poor guy. Now sister has to cheer him up and give that “there’s plenty other fish in the sea” chat. Nice post.

    Bummer! But maybe he’s better off without Mark in his life if he has the power to hurt him so badly. :(

    Aw, get the guy a blanket and a nice cup of tea!
