Flash Fiction For Aspiring Writers: Trains in the Sky


When I was a little boy I use to love trains. One Christmas my Grandpa bought me this train set that went around the whole Christmas tree and all the other presents. I was 4-years-old and a train that went around a track and whistled like a real train was the funnest gift ever. I wanted to be the engineer who drove the trains on the track when I was older.

That’s what my Grandpa did. There is this picture in his office. It’s black and white and there is this sense of wanderlust I receive when I look at this picture. My Grandpa tells me stories, how he took people all across Canada on this train.

Now I am 21-years-old and I trained to drive the metro. I love my job. Except one day I wasn’t paying attention and I hit another train. I heard the screeching, the screaming, as metal bent and people died.Train driver error. But it doesn’t matter anymore — I am driving trains in the sky.

Sunday Photo Fiction: Part 4 – Roman Ruins and Revenge


Part 3: Fatal Attraction

I’ve been in this city before. I remember the buildings and the blue painted doors. Jax has taken me to Rome. I can’t believe I’ve been with Jax four months now and that Graham and I ever existed as a couple. Jax is my dream and he has taken me to my favorite place in the world, Italy.

We are visiting an old Roman building dedicated to the Roman God Bacchus. Was he the God of wine? I’m not really sure, but the wine here is has been fantastic.

Jax squeezes my hand gently and kisses my forehead as I look at the old paintings on the wall of this ruins. “Ready to go my Allie – Cat?” he says. I smile and nod and as an after thought ask:

” Jax when are you going to get the Everett’s money, we sent Graham the ransom note weeks ago?”

Jax smiles,”Allie baby, don’t worry about the money I’ll have it by tomorrow night.” I nod placated for the moment.

” But you’re not going to leave me with Graham are you Jax? I’m your girl now?” Jax squeezes me tight and whispers in my ear:

” Allie, you are mine and I’m never going to give you up. Besides how it must hurt Graham Everett to lose his girl to me, that’s half my revenge.”

I smile at Jax running my fingers through his hair and we leave the old Roman ruin together.
