#StoryIn12 – May

#StoryIn12So, for the past couple of weeks, I’ve been playing along with the #StoryIn12 flash fiction meme on twitter. For those of you who don’t know what it is, the lovely Molly (aka @mollysdailykiss) and the equally lovely Wriggly Kitty (aka @Wriggly_Kitty) have created a daily flash fiction meme. Every day, a new prompt word is posted and the challenge is to write a “complete” story in exactly 12 words, that includes the prompt.

Here are mine for May:

Remark – It had been a throwaway remark, but it had many unforeseen consequences.

Suitcase – His suitcase erupted, spilling a week’s dirty laundry on the airport floor.

Irony – The greatest irony was that he hadn’t even wanted to be there.

Unlike – Normally so stern and serious, this newfound levity was so unlike him.

High – Perched atop the high tower, the panoramic view took his breath away.

Core – The atomic core was unstable, it could collapse unexpectedly at any moment.

Desert – The unrelenting oppressive heat of the desert sun took its inevitable toll.

Salvation – The cool shady oasis would provide his salvation from the punishing heat.

Evacuation – As the river of lava approached the village, the evacuation efforts intensified.

Upset – It is easy to get upset when the world is against you.

Animal – She teased her lover, knowing it would unleash the animal inside him.

Vision – My vision is fine, it’s just that my arms are too short.
