December 14: Flash Fiction Challenge

In 99 words (no more, no less) write a story using the phrase “only in…” It can be used to tell a story about a profession, a place or situation. Go were the prompt leads you.


By Neel Anil Panicker

She felt his tsunami-like stare on her ripe as a summer mango body.

She felt the slash of cold iron nails as leathery belt lashed at her skin, tearing asunder delicate skin, blood squirting out like showers springing out of a sparkler gone crazy.

She felt his words, cruel and harsh, a hammer striking into her soul as her body flung into air, kicked with a maddening rage that spelt brutality with a capital B.

Only in love would she allow anyone to do that to her.

Only when in love would she willingly turn herself into a puppet.
