Flash Fiction: Blackouts (15)


 He was a golden brown marian breed with long black mane. A white patch ran across the medial section of his face, making him stand out among the other horses.

“His name’s Spirit”, Anna said as she noticed Richard’s gaze fixated on her horse. Richard turned to face a smallish young lady standing at many feet below him. He noticed her oval face and blond hair cut into a shoulder length bob. She had sky-blue eyes which was enhanced by a winged eyeliner.

Richard shied his gaze away lest she caught him staring and Anna got down to bussiness. She narrated in a matter of fact manner, her ordeal with H, how she escaped and her belief that Richard’s daughter, was H’s present target. She explained to Richard the scene she met at H’s place and the implicating details on his computer.

“I’ll get them to you tomorrow”, Anna promised. She led Richard to his car, parked at the pavement of the stable’s lake. Unknown to either, a pair of eyes at the lake had seen them.

Word count: 177. This post is in response to the Flash Fiction for Aspiring Writers photo prompt challenge hosted by Priceless Joy. Thanks to everyone who has stuck with me right from the 1st part and welcome to all new readers :). P.S- there is no “Marian” horse breed (i made that up 🙈). You can find all the previous parts of Blackouts: HERE A little tip, Part 9 may or may not be intertwined with this 🙂

  1. I have no idea how you are able to keep your story ongoing from one week to the next. That must take a lot of thought and writing skill. Just wanted to give you a heads up Ameena. I have an announcement in next week’s challenge for participants to wrap up their serial stories by the end of the month.

  2. I believe its no surprise to Richard about H… but time will tell! 🙂 Thanks for another great mystery post. Better start thinking of what your new mystery will be when this is done, for I am hooked now 🙂
