She says; What’s the ”One Minute Fiction” challenge about?

Easy. Each week I’ll provide a prompt to inspire you to write a very short story. The idea is to manage to type your whole story in a minute or less. Of course, you can think about it before hitting the keyboard, and you can take all your time to edit it afterwards…

I always saw her on the bench in the park with a book in her hand. But not today. A couple of books were lying there, wet from the morning dew but she was not there. I went and looked around and saw a note under the books. Hesitantly, I took it out and read it;

“Help me, my life is in danger!”

I was thinking what I could do to help her when someone or something hit the back of my head and everything went black.

Every evening when I came out for my walk, she would be waiting on the steps for me. All along my walk, she would jump around me, strutter, wind her body around my feet. Every day it was a lively and joyous walk. When I came back, I’d invite her to have a drink of water or a cat treat but she’d give me a look like she is saying farewell, and disappear.

The next day she would be waiting for me again. I never knew where she disappeared to every day!

As I park my car on the street, suddenly all colors seemed to bleach out of my surroundings. The complete lack of colors gave me a feeling of impending doom.

As I sat there thinking if I was awake or dreaming, a ray of light hit the tree in front of my car and everything was restored to what it was previously….. everything except me and my car who still were in black and white!

Was I still dreaming?

Empty seats, empty parks

Waiting for crowds of young and old



One day soon, you say



The hustle and bustle will return


The kids will be back with their bikes and skates


Grownups taking a brisk walk or a jog around the trail


Oldies sitting on the benches with a book open on their knees



One day soon, we all hope!

The game was easy as long as you don’t make a mistake. All the pins had to be placed precisely and in a certain order. Any wrong move could end in a disaster.

Tracy took it lightly and now, her family has no idea where she is.

Beginnings or endings


Similar yet different


Gauntlet of challenge tossed


A dare accepted with courage

Do you hear me?

No one is going anywhere without me.

And the dog, he is staying home, all by himself.

And don’t tell me that he will be lonely, I know what he is up to when you’re gone

Are you paying attention?

Finally it was dawn. He ventured out of the cave, Rusty by his side. They both followed the stream of sluggish water to where the vista opened up.

Yet for yourself, you have a different set of rules

It was a surprise, waiting on her doorstep. An old fashioned typewriter with a note on it. She couldn’t make sense of it but since there was her name on the case she brought it inside and put it reverently on her shabby table.

On a whim, she sat and inserted a sheet of paper in it. She pressed the first key, and the keys rapidly started typing and in minutes a story emerged on the paper.

When people asked her later what was the secret to her becoming an overnight successful author, she just smiles!
