Flash Fiction: Phoenix Flowers | Friday Fictioneers, 16 November, 2018
Genre: Mainstream (Wh-wh-whaaaaaat? I wrote a mundane story? Yup. Although, a paranormal culprit could be behind the fire that destroyed the town.)
Word count: 100.
“You can do this, Aunt Beck.”
She slashed a tear from her eye.
I squeezed her knee. “I know.”
“Kass, I can’t do this.” She clutched the door handle.
“Stay with me.”
“I’ll stay here.”
“Half the town’s gone.” Stubborn woman. “You raised me. Least I can do.” She’d lost so much. A baby, the farm. Walt. Now this.
“But you’re starting over too.”
I fingered Randy’s dog tags on the chain. “We’ll phoenix together. Let’s do this.”
We passed the charred gate on the way to the gutted house.
Amid stones and rubble, a cluster of yellow wildflowers gleamed.
I borrowed war widow Kassidy and Aunt Beck, who raised her, from my Reluctant Demon Hunter series, an urban fantasy/paranormal series.
You can buy they All Died Smiling everywhere right now.
