#FlashFictionFriday – Vol. 90: THE LAST SUNSET


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!

THE LAST SUNSET (157 words)

The sun sat low on the horizon, the sky washed in oranges and reds. Wendy sighed. The summer air much cooler in the barn doorway.

“Not much longer,” Carmichael said behind her in the shadows.

“I’ll miss this the most.” Wendy glanced over her shoulder. Even though she only saw Carmichael’s silhouette, she didn’t have to be reminded of his perfection. Crystal blue eyes, fine chiseled features, shiny black hair like silk. So painfully beautiful did she dare call him handsome?

“With time you won’t miss any of it.”

Could that be true? Being with him would release her of missing her family or her previous life?

The sky darkened to a bluish-purple, the sun’s glow only a memory.

Carmichael’s breath whispered against Wendy’s skin. When had he stepped behind her, she hadn’t heard or sensed him. The sun made its final descent and with it Carmichael’s fangs plunged into Wendy’s neck, bringing her forever into darkness.
