Flash Fiction Friday: The things we do for love
Welcome Creatures of the Night to yet another Flash Fiction Friday. Along with a number of other talented authors each week we are given one picture and challenged to write not more than 100 words for your enjoyment.
I hope you like what I came up with from this week's picture.
The things we do for love
(A tale from beyond the grave)
Ever since I had met Jack my life had completely turned around. Gone was the drinking, replaced instead with love and laughter, yet when he had told me to prove just how much he meant to me I thought he had been joking. No-one had ever managed to climb the jagged rock face, known as Love's Ladder, above the ocean before.
“Almost there,” he called to me. “Give me your hand.”
Looking up I reached for his fingers before losing my footing and becoming the one hundredth person to die, trying to prove my love, on those fucking rocks.
Now you have seen what I have to offer I hope you take the time to visit all my friends and read their offerings as well.
