I’ve never written Flash Fic before. It’s never seemed like something I could ever possibly do. But I am in the process of pushing myself outside of my comfort zone with my writing and what better way to do that than to try my hand at something I deemed impossible.
The May 7, 2014 challenge from Carrot Ranch Communications was to: In 99 words(no more, no less) write a travel horror story.
Night had fallen like a thick blanket dropped from the sky.
I gripped the steering wheel, drying blood oozing between my fingers. I pressed further down on the gas.
It was too late. Headlights flickered in the rearview mirror.
I turned off my own lights and let off of the gas, not using the brakes. I veered off of the road, flying into the field.
I maneuvered into the backseat, pushing the still warm body over top of me.
My only hope was the dead taxi driver, and my ability to play dead.
Man, I should’ve vacationed in Alaska.
What do you think?
