Friday Fictioneers – Edge Play

Every week, Rochelle Wisoff-Fields (thank you, Rochelle!) hosts a flash fiction challenge, to write a complete story, based on a photoprompt, with a beginning, middle and end, in 100 words or less. Post it on your blog, and include the Photoprompt and Inlinkz (the blue frog) on your page. Link your story URL. Then the fun starts as you read other peoples’ stories and comment on them!

Nils felt surreptitiously in his pocket and concealed something in his right hand.

“Let’s sit for a moment.”

They sat side by side on the edge of the path, feet dangling over one thousand metres of clear air.

“I love you,” said Nils, opening his hand – and the sun woke fire from the diamond ring.
