Friday Fictioneers: Twin Shells

Madison’s 100 word flash fiction challenge this week is this lovely shell photo, which she credits to Susan Wenzel. This is my entry.


Shells Divided 

Ibiza 2002, they met at a club of course, it had a huge scene back then. They chatted, danced, and then strolled to Matthew’s hotel. A few hours later they caught the sunrise on Es Cavellet, hand in hand.

Gatwick 2012, he headed for departures, tummy fluttering. Ten years ago they’d vowed to bring their shells back to the island. How he had longed for tonight, 10pm outside El Chiringuito.

Mumbai 2012, Rahul pulled a small white shell from a drawer, turned it over in his hands, and dropped it into the bin.

Whatever happened to that funny English guy?

  1. A great sad story compressed in three locations all meaningful to the plot. Gilly, the twist had my mouth hanging open. lol! An imaginative and unique take on the prompt. I’m out this week too.

  2. Rahul is most probably married to the pretty, docile girl mom found him and who will look the other way when he flies off to another rendezvouz in another exotic location 🙂

I would love to hear from you . . .
