Flash Fiction Friday

I'm sure I'm not the first to come up with this alliterative concept. I mentioned on Wednesday that I'd done a bit of Flash Fiction. It's sort of addicting, I must confess. 100 words or less? Easy peasy. I think I'm going to start trying to do this every Friday. I've typically been poor lately at adhering to any "real" posting schedule, but I think I should be able to squeeze 100 words out. What's more, I'm going to try to do these with characters from my stories. No guarantee which world I use, but they may hold some interesting tidbits (though nothing earth shattering). Today we'll go with a scene prior to Fates' Motif...

"Just take it," Werim whispered.

Bud looked around for the umpteenth time. The bakery window was unobserved, ripe.

"Wimp." Werim’s eyes twinkled.

Bud shot his friend a glance. "If you're so brave, then you do it."


With a lopsided grin, Werim disappeared around the corner. A moment later, he returned, golden loaf dancing from hand to hand. "It's still hot," he said with a wide smile.

Footsteps sounded behind them. They spun.

"Werim Swift," Sharee accused. "I'm telling Mom!" She took off like a shot.

"No you don't." Werim tossed the bread to Bud and chased after his sister.

100 on the dot. :-)
