Flight – A Flash Fiction

Flight - A Flash Fiction

My heart took flight, the first time I saw his gentle eyes, glaring back at me, not sure what to make of me.
Should I be trusted, was I worth his attention, or was I like all of the others, who left him behind, heart-broken, and alone?
How could I make him understand, that I was different, that I cared so deeply, the pain of empathy and love leaving me breathless and paralyzed?
I would cherish all he was, with every breath we would both share – always.
I reached out, caressing his soft brown fur, as he began to relax.

The Door – A Flash Fiction

The Door - A Flash Fiction

She knocked on the door with such force that her knuckles hurt, but she continued anyway.
There was no barrier to thick to stop her from going through to the other side, another life, a new beginning. How could she continue to live without regret, if she would not take the chance, even if the potential of devastation was great.
The door opened with the same fierceness that she displayed in knocking on it, his hand on the knob, wearing an expression of confusion and anger on his face.
Reaching for his tangled morning hair, she took a deep breath and uttered: “I love you.”
