make or break?

118th Challenge
Flash Fiction for Aspiring Writers







this week's photo prompt is provided by Pamela S. Canepa. Thank you Pamela for our photo prompt!

This is a flash fiction challenge (stories in 100-175 words or less) and each story should have a beginning, a middle, and an end. 


The rays singed our cheeks, filtering through the swaying 

branches and the light breeze listened to our persiflage. 

“But how do you manage to remain calm with this 

monster’s antics?” Arobola, gnashing her teeth.

Bella forced a wide grin and titled her head at an angle to 

survey her colleague.

“Have you ever walked in his shoes?”, a statement rather 

than a question.

“His words pinch my soul”, complained Nurse Arobola. The 

tears competing for a free flow down the crimson cheeks.

Bella gripped the crying wrist and quickly took a step 

ahead to face Arobola, stopping her in her track.


Pointing her index finger Bella urged her to look in the 

direction. They had ambled deep into the woods the green 

foliage interspersed with boulders of irregular shape and 

size.

“These rocks can be used to build a wall to alienate people 

or lay a bridge to connect hearts”.

“Which one would you choose Arobola” continued Bella.

Bella blinking her eyelashes stared into her colleague’s 

loving eyes.

The choice was made. Both of them walked back to their 

residential quarters.
