#Flash4Storms – Arrow In the Bow

Sarah Brentyn of Lemon Shark is running a Flash Fiction Challenge to aid victims of the recent hurricanes in the US. The challenge is to write a 50 word piece of flash fiction on the theme ‘Help’, and share it in a post, with the hashtag #Flash4Storms in the title. Sarah will donate $1 for every piece of flash fiction posted, to a maximum of $50. Here’s my attempt:

She stood at the edge, looking down. The drop seemed long enough for her purposes, and she closed her eyes, anticipating the darkness she craved. She lifted her arms, rising onto her tiptoes, an arrow notched in a bow. She felt a hand grasp hers. ‘I’m here. Let me help.’

  1. Thank you so much, Helen, for joining in this challenge and helping. 💕 Also, thanks again for sharing earlier this week. (By the way, love the flash. Though I think you knew I would.) 😉

    1. Thanks, Allie. I realised after I wrote it that I wasn’t sure whether they were going to help her back from the edge… or help her to jump. Which kind of freaked me out. So it might take me a while to write the rest! 😀
