The prompt this week is ‘The flame flickered before . . .’ and here are my 100 words,
A Cautionary Tale
‘The Flame Flickered Before Her Eyes and Other Stories’ by Randy Walton, ‘What? That’s weird Sal, look. I’m going in.’
‘It’s just a coincidence honey.’
‘But it looks like my photo as well.’
The bell above the door made the shopkeeper briefly raise his head from his own reading, then he tutted when Margi stood over him.
‘This book, it’s self published right?’
‘Yeah and it’s very successful, been at the top of the short fiction charts for weeks. Everyone’s reading short stuff these days.’
Margi turned to the contents page. Twelve short stories. Her short stories, all of them.
