Flash Fiction: Last Chance

Written By: Dorianna - Apr• 01•14

“Hi Sally, it’s Kiki. We talked last weekend when the guys had their meeting. We knew what they were planning. The violence never stops. I remember our conversation well. I always knew you were just like me, you want out too. I’m leaving Johnny today. This is the chance you’ve been waiting for. Pick up the phone, Sally? Johnny just left with your Frank, another meeting with the gang. The coast is clear. Now’s our chance. Don’t pack a thing. You don’t want to draw suspicion from your neighbors. I’ll be at the back door in an hour. A friend is going to take us to the next town. Someone will meet us there. All arrangements are made. Don’t say a word to anyone, not even your folks. This is our last chance for freedom. I’ve been real careful with the planning. Johnny doesn’t suspect a thing. It’s our one-time shot. Why don’t you pick up the phone Sally?”

Sally stands in the kitchen cringed against the wall and listens to Kiki. She falls to her knees in tears. She didn’t want to betray Kiki. Frank would have killed her if she didn’t do what he said. Johnny knew she was up to something. The scream came over the line. riddling through Sally. She could hear Kiki pleading.

“No Johnny, please. I love you Johnny, please put the gun down Baby. You wouldn’t shoot me, would you, Johnny? I’m hanging up now. I’m gonna stay right here with you Johnny?  Johnny…oh Johnny”

Sally heard the shot as her phone went dead. It was over now . She ran into the bathroom and vomited. She sat with her head over the toilet waiting for the nausea to pass. It took only a few minutes but it seemed an eternity. She rose, cleaned herself off, repaired her hair and makeup, taking care to conceal the puffiness. Frank wouldn’t like it if she had been crying. When it all looked right she returned to the kitchen to prepare dinner for Frank.

Carpe Diem “On The White Sand “Challenge November 19

We are to write a tanka inspired by the tanka by Ishikawa Takuboku

On the White Sand written by Takuboku

On the white sand
Of the beach of a small isle
In the Eastern Sea
I, my face streaked with tears,
Am playing with a crab

my Tanka
Thunder In My Brain

smokey clouds floating
o’er a solitary sea
lonely seaside walk
roaring waves echo your name
creates thunder in my brain

Scene ~ Terror at Midnight

Written By: Dorianna - Aug• 29•13

It was a blistering, humid Arkansas night. Moisture dripped from Niki’s skin forcing her flimsy nightgown to cling to her slender body. Unable to sleep Nikki rose from the puddle her sheets had become and headed for the kitchen to quench an emerging thirst. The clock on the bed stand revealed it was ten minutes after midnight.  Grabbing a frosty mug from the freezer, Nikki poured a Bud and chugged it in one gulp.  She headed thru the living room and out the front door being greeted by the odor of skunk coming from the woods that nearly surrounded the secluded cabin. She walked out toward the downhill path glancing at the shimmering reflection of the full moon across the silent lake, then up at the starlit sky. Nikki stood there for a few minutes admiring the beauty, she loved spending time at the cabin. In the distance she could hear the late night crowd still partying at the after hours boat club. She could get dressed and join them, she thought to herself. Realizing the effort to dress, Nikki dismissed the idea. Suddenly startled from a scuffling sound, Nikki headed for the cabin door thinking she didn’t want to encounter any wildlife. Terror crept over her when she heard a closer sound. She quickly scurried towards the safety of the cabin. The strength of his hold stopped Nikki in her tracks.

Flash Fiction ~ Juliana’s Flight

Written By: Dorianna - Mar• 23•13


Down into the abyss Juliana fell. Neither emergent or arrhythmic was her decline but as the eagle glides, with deliberation and master-skill. Drifting into the darkness she was unafraid. The stillness was her solace like a long-awaited lover arriving to lift her out of despair. No more, her whispering thoughts demanded. No more, as she descended deeper into the solitude that wrapped her in its protection.
