#StoryIn12 – December

#StoryIn12Every day,  the #StoryIn12 flash fiction meme on twitter challenges writers to write a “complete” story in exactly 12 words, that includes the prompt word for that day.

#StoryIn12 is the creation of the lovely Molly (aka @mollysdailykiss) and the equally lovely Wriggly Kitty (aka @Wriggly_Kitty)

Here are mine for this month:

Winter – Snuggled in front of the fire, sheltered from the chill of winter.

Bump – Sometimes, things going bump in the night can be fun, not scary.

Blue – Some days blue is more of an emotional state than a colour.

Method – His method was simple and direct, but it achieved the desired results.

Ocean – Although there was an ocean between them, somehow they would be together.

Forecast – The weekend forecast was atrocious. Another good reason to stay in bed.

Length – In her opinion, width was a much more important measurement than length.

Inspiration – I was lacking inspiration so I almost gave this prompt a miss.

Party – The party season was in full swing. What could possibly go wrong?

Lights – There was no avoiding the question any longer: “Lights on or off?”

Method – His method was simple and direct, but it achieved the desired results.

Hardship – His life often seemed like a sequence of one hardship after another.

Double – It was becoming increasingly difficult to hide his double life from others.

Deep – The wine and deep philosophical conversation flowed into the morning’s small hours.

Border – His life was lived perpetually on the border between light and dark.

Treatment She always knew the most effective treatment for his aches and strains.

Mind – It is impossible to hide from the demons of your own mind.

Medal – There would be no medal ceremony. Survival was the only possible reward.

Tree – They lay beneath the tree on top of the hill, counting stars.

Gift – The gift of learning can, unfortunately, sometimes unlock the curse of knowing.

Stolen – Those brief stolen moments together would create memories that lasted a lifetime.

Expression – The expression he wore told of the utter weariness of his soul.

Rung – She hadn’t rung him that night. She never rang him any more.

Cat – The cat sat contentedly atop the pile of discarded Christmas wrapping paper.

Limit – At the limit of his endurance, he chose to accept the inevitable.

Vain – In the end, their attempts to be together would be in vain.

Matter – Did it matter anymore? He decided that, on balance, it did not.
