Flash Fiction Friday - Angel by Nichelle Gregory


Light envelops her. Shame fades to relief. She hadn’t known if he’d come this time. Shuddering against his chest, she is comforted by the sound of his heart beating strong and steady against her cheek. The cold creeping over her body is held at bay, forced to recede as his incredible warmth forges yet a new destiny for her.


His deep voice holds no judgment, only love and it makes her cry.
She weeps, unaware of the tears falling from his own eyes.

“Why?” He asks again lifting her up from the ground.

“To see you again.”

I always enjoy the challenge of creating a story with only 100 words! I hope you enjoyed Angel.


  1. Why - the biggest word in the Universe.

    Why - why do we do some of the crazy, silly things we do. Why do we love who we love, when everything and everyone is telling us that's the wrong choice. Why does our heart yearn to be with someone when we know it's not good for them or for us. Why do I just want to touch myself after reading this blog post? Why?

  2. LoL...

    I have no answers to your questions, Benjamin, but I am glad you stopped by to read!

    Have a great Friday!
