First of the Month Fiction - October

I am going massively early, even for a Timelord like myself, but as I'm away, and shutting down for the school holidays, this can sit here until my return in October.

Have a great holiday, everyone!

For examples link here - otherwise put your short story in exactly 100 words or less than 30 in the comments, and link your blog in the linky. (and if I don't comment, it's not because I don't love your story, it's because I haven't looked at it yet, as I will be computerless for awhile).

Mine is the 100 words:

It had happened in a split second. He'd stormed out of the house, seeking revenge. He set the match and in an instant, it was the point of no return. Quickly the orange flames crackled and grew. The noise of the fire was strangely hypnotic, and instead of fleeing the scene as planned, he stood transfixed. The fire grew in size and ferocity, and the noise of things crashing and smashing as floors and walls collapsed rang in his ears. As he watched the flames tear through the building, he didn't know his beloved little sister was still asleep inside.

Off to see the world, see you on my return in October!

  1. Oh no!! Did she get out?

    Here we go for under 30 words.

    She wasn't one to spend her time sitting in the toilets, particularly at work, but there was a first time for everything.
    Even babies apparently.

    1. That is excellent! You made my eyes pop out and I laughed out loud. I did not see that coming at all (and apparently neither did she!!)

  2. I wrote this a while ago and it may suit this challenge.

    Hands grip the wheel in frustration. I blast horn a third time. Teenage son emerges; we speed off.
    “Forgot footy boots.” He drawls as we pull up to the field.

  3. Phew I'm glad that you are just getting in early! I anxiously checked the calendar and was glad to find that it wasn't October already!

  8. She stared at him sleeping. Was this all she had? She'd said Yes with glee earlier, but she hid a secret that would destroy them both.

  9. If she could make love to the sounds that came from his mouth when she made him laugh, she would.

    (Ok, so it's not as good as the last one. ;) )
