Flash Fiction Friday

Welcome to this week’s Flash Fiction Friday. A picture may be worth a thousand words but not for us. We have a picture about which we write a story of 100 words, no more and no less. I am joined by some fabulous writers today who give their take on a picture. To see the picture and the other members click this blog link: Flasher Fiction Friday


A deep despair like I’d never known before dropped me to my knees. For years I had begged and pleaded to be allowed to interact with humans, to ease their suffering and take away their pain. Yet when my wish was finally granted I didn’t believe I was making a difference and as the years slowly eased on it became harder and harder not to lose a piece of myself with every passing. I wanted to make a difference, I intended to comfort but losing this last soul was too much for me to bear. His death was destroying me.

Beautifully written, but unbearably sad. As always it's a pleasure to read your writing.

I love the take on this post, sounds like a type of angel of death, yet, one that comforts those crossing over
