Flash Fiction Friday #6 - 20 January 2012

It's Flash Fiction Friday time
Once more comes the opportunity to read several wonderful interpretations of one picture. One rule. One hundred words, no more no less. Here is my offering. Enjoy.

The Inheritance

A deathly hush surrounded her as she stepped into the dark hallway. All the bad memories of yesteryear came flooding back as Ruth's icy eyes widened, trying to focus on something familiar. The house was hers and Franks now. But she wanted nothing to do with it. Too much had gone on there.

 Memories of sitting huddled on the floor behind a closed bedroom door returned.  Ruth remembered trying to shut out the weird howling sounds. She shivered.

Suddenly a rough hand went across her mouth, and a guttering voice said,

"Gotcha! I see you got here before me Sis.”

  1. Nice build-up then you faked me out and made me smile! Still would like to know what happened in that house. Well done.

  2. God brother's are the pits! Loved it

  3. Brothers? I HAVE FOUR! And they're all pains in my ass....but I love them dearly.


  4. Nice, what happened in the house, that's what I want to know.

  5. Nice! I'm trying to figure out what creepy stuff went on in that house. :o)

  6. Hmm, that is skin crawling creepy and the ending came as quite a surprise. This is the start of a story that could go in a lot of different directions. I just hope the weird "brother" remembered to take his meds.

  7. great FFF, the brother is creepin me out. I bet he did something to her during her life. chiller killer, Naomi!

  8. Ooh *chills* do I detect a paranormal angle starting, Naomi? Geesh. It makes you wonder if the brother is devious or just being a typical brother, sneaking up on his sister.

  9. Great post Naomi. Im intrigued and would like to know more. rock on.


  10. Wow! Sounds to be a bit wolfy. Definitely have me curious as to what her brother is up too.

  11. Wow, I was expecting a burgler or a stalker or something, but not a brother. Great post.


I long to know what you think. So please leave me a comment
