This is for week ninety of the flash fiction challenge by Flash Fiction for Aspiring Writers, check out their blog and join in or read others’ posts and be inspired.
So glad I’ve kept up with the next flash fiction prompt. I have another previous prompt ready that I’ll be posting tomorrow for fun if you want to check it out about a prince charming that just doesn’t follow the fairy tales. This week while at my writing group, one of my fellow writers gave me an idea for this lovely prompt. You know me, I love a twist! What do you think? Did you see that coming?
Read mine below and feel free to leave a comment. Enjoy!
