A Different Life

With a heavy heart, I watched her as she stared into the bright sparkles of fire.

It was the only possession she had taken with her when we fled from our country.

Life as we knew it was quickly altered and our bright future was getting dimmer and dimmer.

More Freedom

“I told you he would find a way to help us,” bragged Front In Line.”

“You did, and I’m glad you were right!” answered Sure Win. “However, how long will it last?”

“I don’t know, but  now we are free to enjoy this beautiful beach.  I love the feel of sand on my hooves and salt water splashing on me. There’s even time to enjoy the fantastic view!”

“I know, I haven’t had this much fun since being pampered that year I was ill and scratched from the Grand Quarter Race,” Sure Win recalled.

“I’m afraid master Jimmy will get in trouble for letting us have this freedom. He will meet with the boss tomorrow.” Front In Line remarked.

“Yes, but it will be after we are on our way to the Open Field’s Ranch,”  Sure Win laughed as he galloped along the shoreline.

“Good!  Now we will have the freedom to really run wild for a couple of days.”

“Yes, thanks to master Jimmy. I really love that young man.”

“So do I! “

Summer Hill Vacation

“Kaden, I smell smoke, ” Allison said as she woke from a nap.

“Yes, it is smoke!  There is a fire down in the valley and the wind is blowing in this direction.  We need to leave immediately or we might get trapped up here.”

“Oh my gosh!  Look at that, it’s huge and so close.  Can we make it down in time?”

“Look out, Kaden!  That tree is falling!”

“We can go down the other way.”

“What’s that Kaden?”

“I think it’s a flat tire. We have to go the rest of the way by foot.”

“I can’t stop coughing she said,”  as Kaden caught her before she fell.

They looked up and saw a truck pull up beside them and a man told them to get in.

Reaching the bottom of the mountain to safety they looked in horror as the fire continued to spread in the other direction when the wind changed.

SAVING LIVES

Flash Fiction for Aspiring Writers

Week of 12-06 through 12-12-2016

This week’s photo prompt is provided by Maria with Doodles and Scribbles. Thank you Maria!

Saving Lives

The hospital was full of patients clinging to life after an explosion at a gasoline station.

Darkness had set in by the time my shift ended at the hospital and it began to snow as I walked to my car.

I felt exhausted and mindlessly drove away slowly, but became very alert when I saw a woman carrying a bundle. She was having difficulty walking as she pushed against the wind and snow.

I noticed a vehicle nearby that had apparently slid off the road and hit a tree.

I stopped, got out and as I approached her I saw small feet protruding from the bundle. The child was motionless.

Tears and snow covered her face as she looked at me with pleading eyes.

I rushed her and the child to the hospital.

The woman and child were in serious condition, but I knew they would recover.

A Call To Duty

“Honey, I am so grateful I’m home!”  Martin said with joy.

“This is the best Christmas I could ever ask for!”

“Being here with you and Jodie is the most precious gift I could ever receive.”

“It’s been rough not being here for you and Jodie all year and missing all the special moments.”

“The military is my family also, and I have served to defend and protect our country so we are able to share times like these.”

“Wake up Sargent Preston, we have to move forward to take the hill before daylight!” Lieutenant Crawford yelled.

This week’s photo prompt is provided by Jade Wong. Thank you Jade!

The Gift

“Planetoid, where is Moon Earth?”  Satellite asked.

“She is shopping for a gift to give to her man friend that lives on Earth.”  Planetoid said with a grin.

“What kind of gift?”

“It’s called a tie.  She’s looking for a large green one with a small light at the bottom of it.”

“What is it used for?”

“It fits around the human neck.”

“That sounds uncomfortable!”

“Yes, but all the serious business men wear them.”

“Why?”

“Because it is part of their business attire.”

“I’m sure glad we don’t wear them on this planet!”  Satellite remarked.
