Flash Fiction Friday "Watched Over"

Well Flash Fiction Friday is upon us. It is the day a group of awesome authors show their talent by writing a short story based on one particular picture. It must be 100 words, no more no less. It may seem quick and easy but let me assure you it is not. To try and express your emotions about something with just 100 words is quite the challenge, but a great joy to learn from too.



Carla walked down the boardwalk while thinking herself a complete fool for doing this.  But it had to be done; she needed to prove to herself that she was strong and capable on her own.  The time for waiting was past; the time for finding her strength was now.  Life was short; there was no time for fear to hold her back. She had to do this; confront her demon, the dark night.  A noise behind her caused her to suddenly turn, there he was.

“I knew you were still with me.  Even after death; you still watch over me.” 

Today's picture spoke to me as I am facing down my own fears lately and learning to be stronger than I ever have had to be.   I hope you enjoyed my little Flash and that you will leave me a comment to give me your opinion.  Remember, Life is Short and we have to make the most of every day, always.  :)  
Please check my fellow authors by clicking on the following link....Flashers, then click on each of their names.  They are amazingly talented and you won't want to miss any of their thoughts on this same picture.  It is always a treat to see how different people "see" different things in the same picture.   Have a great Weekend everyone. :)

I feel your strength growing through Carla. Is HE really there? Is it her fear or her confidence that follows her, watching over her? Flight or Fight? I loved this and yes, life is way too short........congrats, great flash:) xo

You squeezed my heart. Loved it.

How did she die and who is the man following her after she's dead? Is that the fear she must face? All these questions I wanted to ask, because you have the reader interested. Nice job.

Fabulous Flasher! Loved your take on the photo.

Uh, wow. Hmm, I'm kinda at a loss for words. This is a one of those FFF's that leaves me wondering what the heck just happened - which is not necessarily a bad thing. The writing is excellent and I can feel Carla's angst. Now I've got to get my brain to fill in the blanks.

Michelle, well done. Anytime a FFF makes me think - really think, it's one I'll remember. Muwah!@
