Day late and a dollar short, but I have my flash fiction! We are doing 100 word stories based on a set prompt. This week’s prompt is: He had kept their mother alive in their thoughts. Too alive, perhaps. Here is my take on the story:
Kim entered the kitchen and immediately dropped her coffee. It splashed over her feet, but she didn’t notice. She stared at her brother.
“Tim. This has gone too far.”
He whirled around, threw his hands to his hips, pursed his lips and tapped his foot. “I’m sure I don’t know what you’re talking about.” The tapping continued.
“I miss mom too, Tim.” Kim hesitated. He had kept their mother alive in their thoughts. Too alive, perhaps. “But, you’re wearing her robe. And talking like her.”
Tim ran his hand over the pearl buttons. “It’s a house coat, not a robe.”
Now you can see what other authors did with the same prompt. Enjoy! :
