Blackouts: Anna’s story

Blackouts: Anna’s story


Anna was a blonde doll-like figure of a lady. Small in statue and dainty in appearance, two of her many traits which fooled onlookers. Beneath all the frills and fuss, was someone who had spent the past ten years living and making it on her own. She was an event planner and the proud owner of a beautiful wooden tent located in heart of fairville grounds.

Her life was going smoothly until she met Harry- an eccentric IT guy. Their meeting, she thought was by chance and after a whirlwind romance, I do’s were exchanged in the heart of fairville. 

Anna soon found herself entangled in the web of a prolific stalker and psychopath with a nudge for violence, and a blinding charm. Harrison crumbled Anna’s world and left her, the shell of her old self. After years of therapy, Anna decided it was about time she faced her predator. Despite knowing well enough that psychos don’t change overnight, she took the chance and paid Harrison a visit. That was when she saw it.

word count: 174. This is my response to the flash fiction for aspiring writers photo prompt challenge where a picture is given for a story to be written. This is also a continuation of my flash fiction series “Blackouts”. I recommend re-reading part6 and part9 and part10 in order to better understand how Harrison and Anna fit into Allison and Richard Blake’s world.
