2011 Flash Fiction – Story 1

In 2011, I wrote quite a bit of flash fiction for the literary site, Apocrypha and Abstractions. One of the stories came up in my Facebook memories last week so I decided to share those stores here on my blog. Here’s the first one. Look for another tomorrow.

BASED ON A TRUE STORY

Mammy said no. No to letting me go to the army base to see James.

I asked twice. She still said no. Bubba laughed when I didn’t get my way.

I was so angry. At Bubba. At Mammy. I shot her while she was in the backyard hanging sheets out to dry. Bubba heard the shotgun blast and came running. I turned and shot him too. I dragged their bodies to the barn and looked for an ax. Then, I buried the pieces in the backyard beneath the blood spattered sheets waving in the wind.
