Welcome to Flash Fiction Friday and the one hundred and sixty-first piece in this series. This week’s is a collection of three stories made up of 6-worder stories (lines) by Chong Teck SIM.
Three stories made up of 6-worders:
Life: inseparable couple exuding sweet nectar.
Death: minutes apart into Heaven’s embrace.
Paradise: carefree living, together into eternity.
Affenpinschers: my companions for a decade.
Memory: yesteryears etch into my heart.
Badminton fanatic; musician wannabe: my brother.
His 21st birthday: a surprise waited.
Nervously, he introduced his beloved Lee.
Loud gasps resonated throughout the room.
Unperturbed, I congratulated the brave couple.
Breaking barriers, more wishes came forward.
Their eyes began to tear up.
A new love story was born.
He looks at her, smiling bright.
Holding a stem, he approaches her.
Puzzled, she stares into his eyes.
She asks: where’s the pretty flower?
You, says he, pointing to her.
She turns shy, blushes, scarlet cheeks.
Your beauty invigorates me, says he.
She feels light-headed, in a dream.
He takes her hand, kisses it.
Cheesy. I love it, says she.
They were very clever. Thank you, Chong.
