Hey guys! I have a confession to make…I have been pretty neglectful of my writing of late. A full time job and a baby make finding the time for such things difficult but I promise I haven’t forgotten about you. In fact, I have some pretty exciting things in the works. First, over on my Instagram, I have reached the 2000 follower mark and will be celebrating with a HUGE giveaway, in conjunction with several bookish shops, so head over and follow me so you don’t miss out. I am also working on some great collaborations for the Inspired series. I have just sent a poem and story away to a photographer and an artist and I have a story sitting inside my head, ready to be unleashed onto paper and sent to another artistic soul. These guys are super talented, and trust me when I say you don’t want to miss out! You can subscribe to my blog and receive updates every time I post, to make sure you don’t miss out. In the mean time, here is a couple of flash fiction pieces, featuring some very nasty ladies! Enjoy…
He wails, the sobbing muffled by edge of her cloak. She can see wetness spread on the red velvet. A guard goes to remove the crumpled figure, but she holds a hand to say no. She likes to watch them beg and squirm, it makes her feel alive. Eventually, when she has had her fill, she kicks him, his body hitting the stone floor hard, the blow unexpected. With one gesture, she signals for his execution. He screams as he is dragged away, “MERCY…MERCY.” She smiles to herself. She has no mercy for thieves. Nothing excuses someone taking what is hers, not even starvation.
The moment she saw him, she marked him her own. Stolen kisses, whispered words, empty and false. She twisted herself around him and settled herself into his life, coiled like a snake. Then, one day she was gone, taking all he had with her; his money, his car, his heart.
