DOWN : (The sun sets sinister)

I stumbled upon this challenge via:


Here is Joes statement regarding this flash fiction challenge:

“I found a new flash fiction challenge for any and all who enjoy such a test of your writing ability. While flash can mean a lot of things, for this specific challenge it is limited to 100 words or less.  By selecting the words in the quarter’s list you can know your word limit. The exciting thing is that these stories are collected for publication each quarter. But, only the first 250 flashes entered will make the publication, so do not hesitate. The word limit for Down is 100 words, just like what I used above. Check out for the rules and to join the fun.”

Here’s my try.









Was he an observer? Magnetic fields pulling.

Faded memories of scuba diving in an ocean. Everything intersected. He was going down. No GPS needed.

A  flickered memory of being a cartographer. Get your bearings. A  master of directions. Did knowing his latitude matter in this dimensional place?

A lighted memory. The seething sun going down leaving the black night of a new moon.

His eyes opened. A foreign room of familiar faces. Beeping.The tube in his throat bringing sweet oxygen.

Her hand on his forehead, staring  into his soul.

“Welcome home. I knew you wouldn’t go down without a fight.”
