Flash Fiction – The Void

Zippy Flash Fiction

For the Carrotranch September 3: Flash Fiction Challenge

Arture dashed across the windswept plain. His heart pounded in his head; his feet pounded the ground. Sand bit at his face as it was dragged away into the void behind him.

What now?

A rocky outcropping jutted up ahead. Perhaps it would shield… Arture faltered and dodged as the mighty wind peeled giant jagged stones away from the earth.

Every fiber of his body strained forward. Then… Arture left the ground. The void pulled him in like a great whirlpool.

Arture set his jaw, tucked his legs, and sped at the void like a cannonball. This wasn’t over.

    1. Thank you! I think we tend to forget what it was like to be a kid as we grow up. Or maybe we just get embarrassed. But children aren’t afraid to make up wild things and pretend they’re real, and I believe we can all learn from that.
