2 Final Flashes – Martha’s Decision

If this is your first time coming to my blog or first time reading my flash fiction, I have to tell you that these next two flashes are the final stories of my previous flashes.

I never meant to make a series flash when I first write Little Black Book…it just came out like my other thriller stories, but Red’s comment made me decided to continue the story of Martha and her son, John till it reaches final ending.

These two flashes are the last in the series. To have a clear idea of what the story is, do check the previous flashes:

  1. Little Black Book,
  2. Disturbed Memory,
  3. Reality or Imagination,
  4. Dilemma,

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

Weekend with a Killer

Martha still hang on her beautiful memories with John. Despite all the articles she had, she still couldn’t accept that John is a serial killer.

“He will come to visit me this weekend, should I ask him?” thought Martha. A silly thought obviously. No murder would admit his crime.

The front door squeaked, Martha couldn’t help feeling so tense. “Mom, I’m home!” shouted John.

Total: 65 words

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

  1. That’s an ending I didn’t anticipate! It better be a strong, soundproof basement.
    And then one day something happens to the mother and John is still locked in the basement. . .

    1. I didn’t want it to end in anyone’s advantage. Sending John to prison break Martha’s heart but keeping him loose will only add more girls on his list.

      What happen next is up to you to imagine 😉 it’s an open ending.

    1. I know 🙂
      I was thnking of sharing it in The Serialist after I posted the last 3 flashes…but I have second thought because my series ends today.

      I am thinking of making another series which aren’t flash fiction….then I will definitely share it on The Serialist 🙂

      John wil say nothing because the story ends open like this.

  2. That’s how it ends?
    I can’t imagine what it would be like to have a son like this.
    I also really wonder whether these people are really born like that. What do you think?

    1. Yup…that’s how it ends 😉 I am a bit lazy to make it longer. I am a bad writer!

      That’s a very difficult question. Maybe it comes from birth but it can also be from something he saw when he as a kid. I am not really sure tho.

  3. Ooohhh!! Nice ending Novia…. but you leave room for more, 😉

    This wee Catgirl has seen lots of movies like this… the killer always manages to escape just in time for the sequel. Yep. Always happens, Hehehe!!

  4. Wow, now you’ve got yourself your own completed serial. Yay!
    Have you watch Kokuhaku (Confessions)? It’s also display how disturbing it is to deal with crime committed by the one that is close to you: even more, related by blood. Wew. Good luck for your upcoming novella, Nov. 🙂

    1. Thank you Dhitz 🙂
      No I haven’t even heard of it yet. Someone should make a book of that Ryan guy, do you remember? the serial killer in Indonesia. The first body was found not far from my old house.

      Thank you…I hope I can accomplish that 😉 …gambare!!

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