Flash Fiction Challenge – Fire

April 4, 2019, prompt: In 99 words (no more, no less) write a story about fire. It can be a flame that burns or a light that inspires. Follow the flames and go where the prompt leads!

My eyes shot open.

What was it that had awoken me?

Then I heard it again… that ear shattering scream. I jumped out of bed and raced out into the hallway, but as soon as I opened my bedroom door my heart dropped. Bright orange and yellow flames danced in front of my face, engulfing the west side of my apartment.

I got down on the ground and crawled on my belly under the flames to my front door.
How could this happen to me? I asked myself. This was the kind of thing that only happened in movies.

I know on Wednesday I said I would be sharing my flash fiction challenge with you all on Thursday (yesterday), but I have seriously been so busy with school, work, and running my own business that by the time I got home last night all I wanted to do was crawl in bed, close my eyes, and fall asleep – so that was exactly what I did.

I will be back later this evening with another post for you all that I already had scheduled but in the meantime be sure to leave some feedback or constructive criticism for me on this weeks flash fiction challenge piece!
