Flash fiction Friday: The Portrait


The portrait

As I walked passed the painting, without even stopping to look at it, an ice cold chill fell over the room. Instantly stopping I turned my head, to see if someone had opened a door or window, and found myself drawn to the pale face of the woman staring back at me from the canvas. Frozen to the spot I was unable to stop staring in to her dark eyes, no matter how hard I tried.
Suddenly the woman reached forward, placed an ice cold hand on my shoulder and stepped out of the picture, just before everything went black.

Perfectly planted with the image and rounded with suspense. Refreshing to read something from an imaginative mind.

Oh, Julez, my skin crawled! Wonderful flash, tense, suspenseful, creepy and screaming for more, as everyone agrees! Xo

I agree with Muffy and Raven! This has to be an upcoming story!
