Flash Fiction



‘Something moved in the shadows.’

The detective’s right eyebrow arches as he leans back; I can tell he doesn’t believe me.

‘There was something… someone else out there that night,’ I plead. ‘We weren’t alone.’

‘Our search hasn’t shown evidence of anyone else but you and Ethan.’

The cell door clangs behind me.

    Good choice to use the prompt sentence as dialogue. It meant you could tell your story in present tense, which works really well for a whodunit or crime story.

    My mind is jumping to “When They See Us” when I read this. I can feel the suspect’s desperation. Well written!

    I can feel the inmate’s desperation. I love a good whodunnit. I want to now more!
