Flash Fiction Friday


BL and Rawiya do the FFF's all the time.

My turn!

“Damn…” I stared at the photo a little longer, wishing I could go to that happier time. Dale and I had been high school sweethearts, going to prom together despite the snickers and jokes. We’d made it through college, still intact, and then… “Fuck!” In disgust, I threw the picture down and held myself tightly. Uncontrollably, I cried aloud, tears staining my cheeks, leaving my face a wet mess. “I miss you so damn much, you know? When are you comin’ back?”

Trying to console myself, I closed my eyes and wished him to be safe then…

“I’m here baby!”

Hope you enjoyed. Check out the other flashers!

I loved that. They obviously allowed nothing to upset and come between their relationship. With Dale gone he was hurting so much. I'm glad he's back. Great flasher

What? Military? Death? Where did he go? He wished him safe, so I am thinking he's still alive. I imagine an action news indepth story of the war in Iraq? A reporter.
