3 Hot Flashes – What Should Martha Do?

On my previous Flash, I left Martha feeling shocked because she had just found out that her son, John, was a serial killer. Please read Little Black Book first.

I promised Red, I am going to continue the story…and here they are wrapped in 3 hot flashes. I put them all in three different pages

Hot Flashes are extra words for Flash in The Pan hosted by Red @ Mommy’s Money Matter. Hot Flashes only allow us to write 50 words or less. for me, it’s really tough!

Here’s the first Hot Flash, the word is DANCE:

Disturbed Memory 

Martha is teaching little John how to dance. She feels so happy even though John keeps stepping on her feet. Martha sees John dancing with a beautiful girl but then it changes into John dancing on so many dead bodies.

She woke up with sweat all over her body.

Total: 49 words

Next Word is Trace, you can read my flash on page 2

    Very cool! (Change your links for page two and three. You changed the date.) ❤ xxx

    1. Novroz says:

      Thank you, Red 🙂

      Yeah, I changed it from 9 to 8. Sorry to cause you extra work.

      1. Red says:

        No, did you change it here on your pages? I could only read them because I knew what the links were.

        1. Novroz says:

          oh no…I meant on the email, I gave you the link for dec 9 but I published on 8 🙂

          The url for the pages is changed because wordpress has the feature to make pages in one post

    I can see why a diary like that would cause nightmares.

    Hey, when I click on page 2 I get a 404 – Not Found Error message.

    BTW, this counts as a serial now, even without page 2.

    1. Novroz says:

      That’s the message I want to deliver, how Martha couldn’t sleep well after finding the book…I am glad you got it 🙂

      I have fixed the problem…I put the wrong link there. Thank you for letting me know the link didn’t work.

      Does that mean I can link it to your The Serialists? but it’s just a flash not a short

    Oooohhh!! Looks like her son is really creepy…. 😉

    But…. D’ohhh!! I can’t read page 2 either… I get a “404 Error – Not found” page instead. I think your link is broken. 😦

    1. Novroz says:

      Actually, without the link, you can still see page 2, the original link from WP is under the like button, but it was very small, like this>> Pages: 1 2 3.
      So small and people often didn’t notice so I put the link again on the post. I have fixed the problem and hope you can read it now, Miyuki 🙂

      Well, she found a horrible diary…but I bet every mother will doubt it first but still has nightmare about it.

      1. Nekoneko says:

        That is a horrible thing for Martha to discover!!… I feel so bad for her to know that the son she loves is a monster. I know that she will be in misery until she can decide what to do. I think the next short story will be very interesting indeed, Novia! 😉

        Brrrr!!! The creepy things your lil’ mind thinks up!! 😉

        1. Novroz says:

          Thank you Miyuki 🙂
          Maybe one day I can turn this into a real long novella 😉

          😀 I don’t know why it’s easier to come up with creepy stories than romance, probably the effect of watching too much horror and thriller since I was a kid 😉

    Creepy, creepy. May I correct something? Sweet is sweat in flash one and pigment should be figment in flash two. Please tell me if I shouldn’t say anything anymore and I will shut up. 🙂

    1. Novroz says:

      oh thank you for seeing those mistakes…I guess that’s why writers need editors, I didn’t spot those mistakes at all!

      will fix it once I get home from work 🙂

    How gruesomely wicked Miss. Novia
    you have a wonderful talent for these
    FTP’s my wondrously fine friend 🙂 🙂

    Andro xxx

    1. Novroz says:

      Thank you Andro 🙂
      Although…being gruesome is more your specialist than mine 😉

  6. Slick! I like how you your flashes carry a continuous thread with Martha as your main character.

    1. Novroz says:

      Thank you Tess 🙂
      I am trying to give a conclusion to what happened after Martha found out the truth about her son

Say something so I know you have read my post, THANK YOU for reading :)
