Flash Fiction Friday - Consequences #FFF #Christmasbloghop #giveaway

Happy Friday, folks.

We're doing something a little bit different this Friday. Still the same picture for all and it's still just 100 words, but we're having a Christmas Blog Hop, so you, the readers, get to win some prizes. Read on and enjoy today's flashes. The Hop runs until December 16th.

Mine took a bit of a dark turn. It was the expression on his face...


Sometimes Jim's job just sucked big time. As if it wasn't bad enough that this particular idiot's incompetency had caused the house fire in the first place, the broad he was practicing his non-existent fire play skills on was Jim's fucking girlfriend.
He grasped Jane tighter as she came to and started kicking her legs. The fire took hold properly behind them, erasing the evidence.
Too bad the fire extinguisher malfunctioned when Jim crushed that bastard's skull.
Too bad these amateurs did not use proper precautions and too fucking bad he got here first.

Now, what to do about Jane…

As ever let me know what you thought of my teaser. Please leave your e-mail address because I am giving away a copy of my Christmas story For the Love of Mutt.


A homeless shelter at Christmas may seem an odd place to find one's soul mate, but love knows no boundaries—or does it
Anja has grown fond of the wolf-like dog hanging around the shelter. With her soon to be ex -boyfriend putting pressure on her, her canine friend proves to be more reliable than any human could ever be. If only he were more than just a dog.
Helping others is not always easy to do, unless Ethan can do so undercover. However, hiding your true self brings problems of its own. Finding a mate had not been in Ethan's plan of action, but Anja's easy acceptance of Mutt breaks through all of his defenses.
The problem is he is not what he seems, and will his deception by proxy prove the end of them before they even have a chance at love?

  1. All I can say is ... oh god! It sure did take a dark turn, didn't it. If this winds up as a full-length story, I sure hope Jane is alive at the end.

    1. Yep, it did. Caught me by surprise too. Don't think I'd dare make this full length. Jim is one angry man.

  2. Wow! Much darker than anything I've ever read from you. A bit of a Dexter character coming?

  6. You had an undertone going on here that wasn't really visible at the beginning. It turned quickly into duty contrasting jealous reprisal. That is a dark finely executed twist is such few words, Doris. Very edgy, contrasting juxtapositions and emotionally packed. Excellent teaser, excellent :) xo

  10. This flash needs a resolution. It left me with worries for Jim. I sympathize with his discovery and reactions, but how will he deal with Jane and what will be discovered after the fire investigation? Great Tease.!
