Nick planned to surprise his old mother whom he hadn’t met for a few years now , as work had kept him busy. He planned to cook his mother, her favorite meal and catch up on all that he had missed.

The deafening sound pierced his thoughts and then there was only darkness.

      1. You’re most welcome, Radhika.
        I’ve somewhat taken sort of a “personal retreat” lately to sort things out and grow in some areas I need to develop and improve more about myself.
        Reading from friends’ posts here at WP is one of the things I truly miss lately ☺
        Happy to be back 😉

  1. Yikes! Radhika, this is great and you managed to write so much in just a few characters! You feel for Nick, trying to make up for his absence, alleviate his guilt and then the finality of the last sentence! Excellent writing!

  2. Wow, that flash fiction is amazing! I write picture books, which some people think is like flash fiction. But no, there’s a certain subtle delicious ending that doesn’t exist in children’s books.

  3. This brings to mind a song “In the Living Years” by Mike and the Mechanics. An old song, it will evoke new tears. Your writing brought the song immediately to mind. Good story.
