Flash In The Pan: Fire

They shout. They scream. Oh look at the panic. They try to save their most treasured possessions. The fire is dancing to the rhythm of the night. It licks the houses greedily. What a delicious desert for the great fiery monster.

He smiles in contempt. He admires his art. There is nothing more beautiful than the dancing fire. A shiny metal lighter in his hand seems to agree with him.

Total: 70 words.

This is part of Red at Mommy’s Money Matter’s Flash in The Pan for Fire with 125 words limit.

I hope I can come up with new flash fiction every week, there are 13 words in Flash in The Pan, I have done 3 so far 🙂 you can see all the flashes at Red’s Blog.

The bold ones mean that I have made a story out of that word.

  2. Squeak (75)
  3. Ripple (75)
  4. Drug (75)
  5. Wake (125)

    Oh, I like what you did with this one! I love that you give the fire such personality.

    There will be two more words before we finish. They will be two more Hot Flashes. At the rate you are going, you are going to have the ultra shorts down pat by the time you get to them! Awesome.

    I hope you have had a wonderful weekend ❤

      Fire is the worst accident, in my opinion. My main concern is my pets and my school diplomas. Every time I see a news about fire, it always creeps me out.

      Thank you for saying that Caroline 🙂 I like surprising ending and always try to write stories with that kind of ending.

      I think only arsonist who isn’t afraid with fire 😉
