Rising Above – A Flash Fiction

free

Take it away from me, go ahead, see if it will break my will, as you imagined it would do.
Try me, and see, if your actions will not only fuel my desires to rise above it all.
No hateful action, desperate, painful word will break me.
Go ahead, I dare you, for you do not know my deepest truth, my hidden strength.
No matter what you do to me, I am already free.

A Lonely, Silent Night

A Lonely, Silent Night - A Flash Fiction

With desperation in her heart, she summoned him without hesitation.
The darkness of the last few weeks had been so overwhelming, that the warnings of the old woman had not found its way into her thoughts, never even considering that who she was calling for, was not the same person he had once been.
It did not matter, anyway. Her life did no longer matter to her, a life without him, more terrifying than any potential entity finding its way into her space.
One more moment, one more glance into his beautiful blue eyes, is all she asked for, and exactly what she received, as he took her life, as quickly as she had taken his before.
