Microstories

A few months ago I came across a call for micro stories by MatchBook. (The requirements were quite specific, as it could contain no more than 140 or so characters in total, divided into three lines. Read some of their stories here)

I tried writing a few and it wasn’t easy! But I liked the challenge, it is like flash fiction on a sugar high (or perhaps a diet?). It is fun to try if you enjoy writing and solving puzzles.Β 

Thought I’d share one of my attempts and my prompts for this one were mystery and cookies. Β 

Her Enemy They Said
But his hands, so gentle, passed
only cookies with a hint of almond.
