Moral Monday’s Flash Fiction: Team Trust #flashfiction #amwriting

Thanks to Nortina S for hosting Moral Monday’s. This week’s moral prompt is: “There’s no ‘I’ in Team.”



The Panther’s high school volleyball team were playing a vital game. If they won the match, they would make it into provincials.

“Come on Jackie,” her teammate Aimee cried, “Serve the ball right into that Amazon’s face.”

Jackie set-up her serve and slammed the ball to a player named Stacey on the opposing team. Stacey missed bumping the ball and her Amazon teammates criticized her meanly. 

Jackie’s next serves against the Amazons were down the left line. An Amazon player named Lauren, began pushing her teammates out of the way to ensure she got the pass-up. Her teammates were angry she was in their space and began squabbling. 

Jackie and Aimee from the Panthers smirked. The Amazons were deconstructing from the inside. Their bickering and distrust of each other ensured they would lose the game.

    So very true, a lot of things fall apart from the inside. Good story!

      Thank you JR. Yes, probably the worst place to fall apart from.

    Good job. It reminds me of the recent women’s soccer match in the Olympics between Sweeden and the US. Hope Solo called the Sweeden team “cowards,” when all they really did was come up with a great strategy, work together, and they ended up defeating the US.

      You are right. Its much like that. Yeah you learn pretty fast, a team that collapses from within, is giving the other team a win.
