Flash Fiction for Aspiring Writers

Week of 09-06 through 09-12-2016

This week’s photo prompt is provided by Phylor. Thank you Phylor for our photo prompt!


“Anna, is this a picture of the shed that was behind your house?”  Millie asked.


“What happened that day?”

“Alfred came to town and destroyed every single piece of it.”

“I remember that day, it was a really powerful storm!”  Millie remarked.

“Yes, and I was in the shed working on my school project when the fierce winds started.  I tried to run out, but the ceiling blew off and the walls seemed to crumble immediately.”

“I remember running, but a large piece of wood hit me on the shoulder, knocked me down, and several pieces fell and trapped me from moving.”

“The rain was like a gigantic waterfall pounding on my head. “

“I heard thunder and saw a large flash of lighting.  It struck a piece of the wood and started a fire.”

“I was so scared, I must have fainted.”

“Fortunately, a neighbor was visiting and helped my father get me out. The ambulance arrived and took me to the hospital.”

  1. Thank you! Yes, I do live in Florida and the latest storm brought a lot of rain and wind leaving some damage, but nothing major in our general area. I’ve seen quite a bit of storms and hurricanes over the years . Our family never experienced damage to our house due to wind, however, we did have some flooding in part of our house at one time.


  2. Such a scary situation for a child Jessie. I’m sure she had nightmares. Happy the neighbour found and rescued her, that he was looking out for her.
