Freedom – Flash Fiction

Rod walked through the gate and put his worn satchel on the floor. He calculated how much money he had left and hoped it would be enough to last him. The big question – what’s next? – circulated around in his head. Focus on the now, he thought, the priority is to get home to my wife and kids. The rest could wait.

A car screeched down the road and then skidded to a halt at the curbside. The window wound its way down and his brother’s smiling face emerged.

“Jump in, brother! Freedom awaits you.”

What is Freedom? He wondered.

Humanity is like an Ocean

Kate sobbed into the pillow. Talia leaned over and rubbed her back.

“Kate, it will be all right!” Kate sat up and looked her sister straight in the eyes.

“No Talia, it won’t. Each day, I do my job, I try to help and it seems each day another injured creature must be put to rest. And why? Because humans do not care! They have no time to pick up their waste after a trip to the beach or the park, indeed, they do not care what products they buy as long as it has the brand they want to be seen with or a price they are willing to pay. But who really pays the price, Talia? Those sorrowful creatures that look deep in my eyes as I soothe them and try to comfort them in their final hours.”

“Listen, my dear sister. You are correct, some humans, do not care but not all are like that, and I feel the tide is turning in our favour. You must not lose faith in humanity. Humanity is like an ocean; if a few drops of the ocean are dirty, the ocean does not become dirty. Until then we must keep campaigning. Keep spreading our word. Keep rescuing the injured. It will be worth it in the end. I assure you.”

“You must not lose faith in humanity. Humanity is like an ocean; if a few drops of the ocean are dirty, the ocean does not become dirty.”

Finding The Way

Ella had been lost for days.

Why had she made this deal with the devil?

But she knew she would take the deal again in a heartbeat. She would do anything for her family.

Yet, this never-ending maze was torturous. Exhausted, she dropped to her knees and let out a sob, which quickly turned into a desperate prayer.

Silence followed, then slowly her determination returned.

Getting to her feet, she navigated through the trees once more, arriving at a well-worn path.

Up ahead she saw an iron gate with the words “the way” written on it.

“Thanks”, she whispered.

#WRITEPHOTO – Well by NOPE, NOT PAM

What happens when you make a deal with the devil? Find out in this fun entry by NOPE, NOT PAM

When I accept the challenge, I knew there had to be a catch.  I mean it seemed simple enough, locate the well at the end of the garden.  Not any well of course, the well down the long twisting path, with the slate roof and in the gothic style.

See more at:

For visually challenged writersthe image shows a path amongst some foliage leading to a pyramid-shaped building.
