Flash Fiction #5

I have both a wish and a fear that fills me everyday when the sun comes up in the morning. Before that though, it brings me great joy to have her soft hands caress me early in the morning to get me ready for the day. Most days it would be routine and before I know it, I would be puffed up due to the scorching heat. It would fill the room with my scent of the freshness. It makes me happy to hear that my development makes her happy as she always hums with a smile. I always wonder what kind of song she is humming to, or is it an original tune? Despite my curiosity, I can't do anything to find out as one day is the limit for me. I'm usually gone by the end of the day and don't live to tell the tale to the next generations.

Back to the initial point, my wish is to have her with me for eternity and to always be there for her. If she could look at me the same way she looks at her boyfriend, it would be my most happiest moment of all time. I am only a stepping stone. Practically invisible to her as I sit there, waiting.

My fear is to be chosen by someone and taken away. I will never return to my one-sided love of my beloved. The heartbreak is too much for me, and I am powerless to stop that from happening.

As always, a man steps right up to my crush and I overhear their conversation.

"Good morning, sir. What would you like today?"

"Hold on a second..." He gave a quick reply as he scanned at us quickly.

I could feel my neighbours wanting to be picked and go to their destiny as it awaits them. All I ever want is to be with her. Why can't anybody see that?

"I want that one on the second row, third from your right."

No! I wanted to scream out loud. I tried to resist with all of my might, but she held me firmly with her soft gentle hands. I wanted to cry as I was leaving with the man in his hands. I wonder if she will miss me. Why can't she understand my feelings for her? Does she not understand that I don't want to be separated from her?

The remaining moments of my life felt like an eternity with the agonizing, slow, painful death of 5 minutes. A part of me was being destroyed after every minute or so. It felt like forever until I was gone. It was sad to leave my crush behind and to die without feeling the warmth of her hands again, but the only hopeful outlook is that I will see her smile again the next day. The floral scent that is on her. The catchy tune from her hums.

Thus the never ending cycle begins anew for the next day.

Writing Prompt: Have someone looking for something that is lost.

Hope you enjoy!


Maria ran up and down the street as she stared intensely for the bracelet that she had gotten as a gift. "Where is it? I can't believe I lost it!" She screamed at herself from within. She could feel the rush in the heart beat, and beads of sweat forming on her forehead and back of the neck.

"I'm sure it must be here somewhere. I checked at home, and at school. I couldn't find it anywhere. How can I be so careless?"

Maria cried when she realized the bracelet was lost, and wanted to cry even more while running around. "I can't cry. Tears won't find my bracelet."

When she saw a bracelet near an alleyway, she jumped at it with disappointment. "It's just some junk." She lowered her head at her bad luck, but she got up with renewed enthusiasm unwilling to show defeat.

After walking down the same route from her home to school for thirty minutes…

Maria jumped up and down, wrapping arms with her teammates as her softball team won the game. "Good job, everyone!"

Her teammates reciprocated the cheerfulness, and celebrated the come back from behind win. Maria noticed Sarah and Taylor coming towards her from the stands, and ran towards them. "Thank you both for coming out! It means a lot to me cheering for us in this type of game."

"No problem. It was really entertaining." Sarah hugged her younger sister, congratulating her.

"That diving catch that you made in the field in the ninth inning was so clutch! I wish I had my camera to take a photo. Good job, Maria." Taylor brushed her hair.

Maria froze for a split second as Taylor was making a mess of her hair. She was glad that she was hiding her face in Sarah's shoulder with that moment, as it started to turn red. She tipped her hat down to try to hide as much of her face as she stepp…

"Shoot her." The boss told me as he handed me a pistol, and guided my hand to point it at Ashley. She was tied to a chair with rope, unconscious.

My eyes were wide open with shock. I couldn't believe what I just heard. "B-Boss, w-what do you mean? She's our comrade!"

"Not anymore. We found out she has been betraying us all along. She's a spy for the police."

"I don't believe you!" I lowered the pistol a little bit, trying to grasp what was going on. "Are you certain? She has to be set up by someone else."

"It doesn't matter at this point. Even if she wasn't the spy, I need to send a message to keep my image."

Ashley woke up from her slumber, and fidgeted in her seat realising that she was tied up. "What's going on?" She saw the …
