Character's FORBIDDEN 2 LOVE

FORBIDDEN LOVERS



The goldfish bowl teeters on the edge. I shiver as the thick glass rocks backward and shatters. Shards splinter the air. My heart aches at the thought of her being harmed.

Her scaly body falls into my arms. Water showers down over us, baptizing our union.

Here we are—the vampire cat and the feeble fish, not meant to be, yet in love.

I lean closer. Her blue eyes bulge, her plump lips swelling. “My love,” I whisper.

Kiss me, before I dry up,” she murmurs, and slips out of my grip and down the kitchen sink.

I bellow.


This Flash Fiction comes to you via the Second Crusader Challenge, hosted by Rachel of Rach Writes. We were required to write a piece of 100 words or less beginning with the words: The goldfish bowl teetered... As an added bonus, we could attempt to stay within our genre. That explains my kitty with fangs and the romantic tragedy. LOL

HERE's a peek at other Crusaders who've given the Flash Fiction a try. Check'em out!

Enjoy your weekend!! Hearts to U, All!
