Featured Flash Fiction
I write a lot of flash fiction – every Friday, in fact. Mine is always 100 words long, and you can find much more of it in the archive, and you can download my free ebook 100 Not Out.
Hogmanay, 2020: the famous Edinburgh street party fireworks display has been cancelled because of coronavirus.
Like many couples in their mid-eighties, Catherine and Jack will welcome 2021 in their bed. They're still having fun, though, imagining their own bedroom "fireworks" – rockets, Catherine wheels, jack-in-the-boxes, roman candles, bangers – anything with double meanings. Eventually, Catherine invites Jack to "light her fire", and they burn brightly for almost twenty minutes.
Later, as they lie exhausted, Catherine says, "So, now we've discovered that mysterious 'COVID vaccine side-effect' they warned us about. If we asked, do you think they'd give us a booster next week?"
