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 on your page. Link your story URL. Then the fun starts as you read other peoples’ stories and comment on them!

Last Run of the Day
It’s dark. The streetlights are on. My friends have all gone home for tea, but I can’t resist the lure of the snow. One last run on the sled.
The air smells cold. A car slithers down the road below. I dive onto the sled. The track is icy. This is my fastest yet!
I jam my leg into the snow, to pull the sled round and stop it.
Nothing happens. I can’t get traction, and I’m racing towards the road.
Time to bail out, arms and legs akimbo.
Safe in a gorse bush, I hear a crash from below…
