#FlashFictionFriday – Vol. 62: TO PROTECT ONE’S HEART


This is for week sixty-two 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.

I love writing stories about romance, but after awhile I find it hard to come up with new, fresh stories – a play on classic tropes. What do you think about Claudette’s actions? Was her thinking justified? If you want to join in the challenge for the current’s week prompt, check out it out here!

Read mine below and feel free to leave a comment. Enjoy!


Turn, turn, turn. Claudette watched the windmill blades. Golden wheat swayed around her. Harvest time.

“Lazy girl.”

Claudette’s head perked up coming face-to-face with Liam.

“Says the merchant’s son.” She lay back down.

“Always so haughty,” he said, resting next to her. “What did I ever do to you?”

“Liam, the list goes on.” Claudette thought him handsome, but she was a farm girl—no need to waste time on politeness. “And I finished my work.”

“Then you have time for the pub.”

“Pub? I’ve got time, but no shilling.”

Liam frowned. “I meant with me.”

“Oh.” Could he be sincere? “You best go alone.”

Before Liam could respond, Claudette pulled his lips to hers until she was wrapped in his arms and their breath gone. Without another word, Claudette stalked off leaving a confused Liam behind. What chance did she have with a merchant boy? None. And she’d never give him a chance to reject her.
