Flash Fiction for Aspiring Writers

Week of 11-03 through 11-09-2015

This week’s photo prompt provided by Sonya, Author of the blog, Only 100 Words.
Thank you Sonya!
Abby knew the chances of finding her twin sister were next to impossible, but she refused to give up. Each day she went to the angel statue, stood by it, looked to the sky, and prayed.
She continued to do research on the internet, but nothing had developed that gave her a solid clue of how to find her sister she had not seen since they had been separated at the age of five. Thirty years had passed since the tearful heartbreaking day when they were adopted by separate families.
Abby walked up to the statue once more, looked to the sky and prayed.  Several minutes passed, she heard a woman’s voice and turned toward the sound of the voice.
She looked amazed when she came face to face with a young woman who looked like herself!  It was like looking at a mirror!
Her prayers were now answered.

  1. Good story on the prompt. You like ‘twin’ stories I see. I’m glad the sisters found each other. If only it were that easy in real life.


  2. Thank you, Joy! It happens in real life too and it is such a blessing. I had a neighbor who just met her sister for the first time in over 45 years! They are so much alike…not twins, but mannerisms, etc. and very close in appearance. We get together sometimes and she is so happy, but her sister does live in a different state, so they can’t see each other real often.

  3. When it comes to twins, finding your sibling is so like finding your other half to now be a complete whole. I can’t imagine the feeling of longing and looking for all that time, but I do know that faith works miracles, just as it has in your story. Lovely!


  4. The power of prayer and hope and angels! I’ve read that identical twins share are remarkable bond…

    Just one little crit: first sentence chances/were.

    Thinking of you,

      • oh! I’m here now reading a paranormal series written by a wordpress friend. I saw your reply.

        Thanks for responding and yes…I’m sure, for most of us, the feed back on our work comes from wordpress readers. I appreciate an honest crit, too.
        Hope you are enjoying your week end.
