Flash Fiction for Aspiring Writers: Through a Skeleton’s Eyes. 

Surprise! I’m the skeleton in the classroom where you have Anatomy. An interesting aspect: the top half of my skull isn’t mine, it’s fake. 

Once I was a pretty girl of nineteen named Iris. I ran up to the dorm to watch movies with a bunch of the guys from the hockey team. My guy was the goalie. Travis made everyone laugh. But I stopped laughing when I went to see him in his dorm room when he was sick.

I opened his door and there was this fake and bake cheerleader on top of Travis moaning. I shrieked and I dragged the naked cheerleader by her hair to the door.

Suddenly, the cheerleader became free and hit me hard on my head with Travis’ favourite hockey stick. I could hear my head crack, distantly. The cheerleader hit me again viciously. I remember Travis crying but doing nothing to stop her.

So, Yes. This was my skeleton, but I’m not tied to it. Only, my spirit  hangs about here. I’m stuck on campus where they covered up my murder. The cheerleader slut and Travis went free. They didn’t live long.

      1. Ah, I get it now. I only watched that show a few seasons and never caught that, or don’t remember her saying that. I was thinking OMG in thirty and I’m already out of the new slang. I’m doing Pop Sugar’s reading list this year, I am curious if you are?

      2. Oh. 🙂 I know there is a gif with J.Lo saying that word! Haha
        BTW, I am still thinking if I’ll do it or not! I failed last year :(. And I am having doubts if I’ll enjoy it again. Looking for books that will fit the categories are quite hard.
        But good luck on yours! Have you made a list already? 🙂

      3. I took a look through the list and I think I will just fit the, in as I find them. Or if I’m wanting to do a particular list item I’ll search for the book then 🙂


    1. Thanks joyroses for the compliment and for your comments. I’m glad the story appealed to you. Yeah, I just always wondered when you see that skeleton in the Biology/Anatomy classroom what’s it’s story. 🙂


    1. Yeah, Iris’ story is a sad one. To be killed by your boyfriends literally psycho random hook up, it’s a horrible death. Why the boyfriend did nothing made Iris really upset. In a story, I think revenge is a good twist. In real life, I would like to hope a girl like Iris would move on to a better place and the police would do their due diligence.
