My contribution:

Matter of Time

Damn her.

His hand hurt like hell. She’d broken the skin.

Blood smeared onto the bed as he pulled himself up.

Damn her.

He stumbled out the open back door into the yard.

He lit a cigarette and growled…I know you’re out here. It’s just a matter of time.

Moonlight reflected off the chicken wire on the old split rail fence. The entire yard surrounded. And overgrown.

He smiled and spoke…You Know There’s No Way Out. 

Then he noticed it. Mangled wire. Rotted wood in pieces. An opening.

A broken fence had ruined everything.

She was gone.

  1. As always, when I read your flash fiction, I am immediately immersed in the experience, the intensity palpable, the fury fast and on the verge of rage-filled insanity. Wow. And wow again.
